    What are your dream Star Wars duels that have never happened? But here's the catch: they need to be canonically possible (No Yoda vs Kylo stuff).

    Post your answers and let us know why!!

    Here are my top dream duels:

    1). Maul vs Vader

    This has been a dream duel for years. Maul was the first real iconic villain since Vader. It's only natural to imagine then facing off, but for a long time in seemed impossible. But now, of course, we know that Maul is alive (and a crime boss) during Vader's prime. I wouldn't be surprised if we actually saw this happen before long, and I can't wait.

    2) Luke vs Snoke

    After TFA, I really expected this to happen. But it seems like this must have happened at some point in the past. Right? Would Luke let Snoke destroy everything without a fight?

    We've never seen Snoke in battle, but he's obviously strong in the force. This is one I'd love to see.

    3) Rael Averross vs Vader

    We last saw Rael, Dooku's first Padawan, in Claudia Grey's Master and Apprentice. I love this character. He combines the Old West side of Star Wars with the "failed samurai" concept.

    I'd love to know what becomes of him after order 66. I envision Rael as a gritty old Jedi sheriff. He's Vader's master's master's failed apprentice. There would be so much history to this duel. I'd love to see this happen.


    That's it for me. Drop your dream duels below!

    Windu vs Dooku: Two of the absolute best with a lightsaber, both have their own unique styles and of course their iconic bespoke weapons.

    Maul vs Vader: For the reasons you mentioned. I think Vader would win in a good fight, and of course he'd kinda have to win because story and canon etc.

    Ahsoka vs Inquisitor Barriss: This has been hinted at by a lot people online and is absolutely canonically possible. Make it happen Lucasfilm!

    I would like to see a duel between:

    - Obi-Wan Kenobi vs Mace Windu
    - Anakin Skywalker vs General Grievous
    - Luke Skywalker (or/and Kylo Ren) vs Snoke

    Bonus:
    Luke Skywalker vs Kylo Ren- I mean a classic lightsaber duel. Don't get me wrong, the duel in TLJ was cool and so, but I wanted something different.

    That would be dope. You know, we have t told much canon story in the pre-Clone Wars period. I'd love to see a cartoon or something like Clone Wars but between TPM and AotC

    Damn, you took all of my first choices. :p

    The unfinished Boba Fett/Cad Bane arc from The Clone Wars would’ve touched on something like this. Essentially, Cad Bane never got to see if he or Jango was the better bounty hunter, so he goes with the next best option: he trains Boba and they have a showdown at the end of the arc, which very well may lead to Bane’s death.


    Like @NinjaRen said, I really think Anakin vs. Grievous would’ve been an interesting fight. As much as I commend Filoni for not wanting to contradict their meeting in Revenge of the Sith, it would’ve been cool to see Grievous fight a main character besides Obi-Wan (and occasionally Ahsoka) in The Clone Wars. I wonder how Anakin’s aggressive fighting style would do against Grievous. Oh well, playing Heroes vs. Villains in Battlefront 2 will just have to do...

    A duel between Rebels Season 3-era Ezra Bridger and Sabine Wren (with the Darksaber and her Mando tech) against Darth Maul, or even just an Inquisitor, would’ve been cool to see. We’ve never really seen a non-Force user work side-by-side with a Force-user in a lightsaber duel, so this would’ve been dope to see. Not to mention that team-ups between Ezra and Sabine were few and far between.

    If we ever get a continuation of Solo: A Star Wars Story, a duel between Han Solo and Qi’ra would be really interesting to see. The former lovers end up on opposite sides in some conflict and end up meeting face-to-face and have to fight each other. Maybe Han has to team up with the Cloud Riders again or maybe some other misfits and they end up fighting against what’s left of Crimson Dawn, now with Qi’ra being second only to Maul.

    Better yet, what if Han Solo and Maul fought each other? Lucasfilm would have to be very careful on how they handle this fight, so that Han still doesn’t believe in the Force by the time ANH rolls around, but it would be awesome to see this fight happen, perhaps in an indirect way.

    I don't see why allowed to beat up Kylo with my cane I am not. Summoning light(e)ning on @Jaxxon I should.

    ‘Always with some it cannot be done’, right am I? ;):D

    On topic, I’d like to see R2-D2 vs R2-Q5.

    Fine, I'll allow it. As long as it's Ghost Yoda. If you want Ghost Yoda to lightning Kylo to oblivion, go for it.
