He sneak up to Count Dooku in Geonosis, and he could destroy him in there ;

''My blade doesn't light the underside of Fett's square jaw. I don't waste time with words. I don't hesitate. I believe. In my dreams, the purple flare of my blade sizzles the gray hairs of Dooku's beard, and in the critical semisecond it takes Jango Fett to aim and fire, I twitch that blade and take Dooku with me into death. And save the galaxy from civil war.

I could have done it.''

Mace threw his lightsaber faster than eye could follow, which is impressive because Korun people are Force sensitive.

"'Answer me!" Mace roared. With a convulsive snarl, he threw his lightsaber on the ground at the Korun's feet. Faster than the eye could follow, his hand flashed out, his thumb hooking the Korun's cheek while his fingers dug in behind the hinge of the man's jaw. He yanked the Korun's face to within a centimeter of his own, and there was open raging madness in his eyes.

Mace uses the Force for piling the trees,

''It took only minutes to clear a landing zone. I had used the Force to pile some of the smaller trees, intending to kindle their damp wood with my blade to make a huge smoking bonfire, but I didn't have to; before we had even cleared the zone, three flights of gunships swarmed overhead.''

Source: Shatterpoint

Mace is using his superior speed against a very fast oppenent such as Vastor, while Vastor was blinding, Mace was invisible...

''Standing toe to toe, the top of Mace's head barely came to the level of Vastor's chin, and you could have tucked Mace's whole thick-muscled upper body inside Vastor's chest with room to spare. And even hurt, lurching drunkenly, Vaster still could whip his arms in blindingly fast raking slaps at Mace's head and wounded neck. But where Vastor's speed was blinding, Mace's was invisible. Not one of those slaps connected. Before Vastor could even focus his eyes, Mace had hit him six times: two thundering hooks to his short ribs, a knee slamming hard into the same thigh he'd hit before, an elbow snapping up to the point of his chin, and two devastating palm strikes to either hinge of his jaw.''

Source : Shatterpoint

Mace uses Vaapad again,

Vastor's mighty arms spasmed and dropped limply to his sides. "This is called Vaapad, Kar." A fierce light burned in Mace's eyes. "How many arms do you see?"

Mace creates impenetrable web of lightning ;

''The compound flooded with smoke and flame, with flashes of blaster bolts and snarls of hypersonic slugs. Mace paced through it all with relentless calm, his only expression a slight frown of concentration, his blades weaving an impenetrable web of lightning. He gave more and more of himself over to the Force, letting it move his hands, his feet, letting it guide him through the battle.''

"I am convinced this is the next step in a plot aimed directly at thenheart of the Jedi," Mace said. "This is a move toward our destruction.

The dark side of the Force surrounds the Chancellor."

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Windu's lightsaber skills are well known in the Jedi Order ;

''Say what you will about the wisdom of ancient Master Yoda, or the deadly skill of grim Mace Windu, the courage of Ki-Adi-Mundi, or the subtle wiles of Shaak Ti; the greatness of all these Jedi is unquestioned, but it pales next to the legend that has grown around Kenobi and Skywalker.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Another quote suggests that Windu was in the same league with Yoda ;

"Think of it, Anakin." Palpatine stood close by his shoulder, opposite to Obi-Wan, so close he needed only to whisper. "You have destroyed their political head. Take their military commander, and you will have practically won the war. Single-handed. Who else could do that, Anakin? Yoda? Mace Windu? They couldn't even capture Dooku. Who would have a chance against Grievous, if not Anakin Skywalker?''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Same quote from the AotC, again...

What about Obi-Wan?" He frowned. "What about him?" "You told me once that he is as wise as Yoda and as powerful as Mace Windu. Couldn't he help us?"

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Obi-Wan Kenobi compares Yoda to Mace ;

"But surely, Master Windu," Obi-Wan had said, "you, with the power of Vaapad or Yoda's mastery of Ataru-" Mace Windu had almost smiled. "I created Vaapad to answer my weakness: it channels my own darkness into a weapon of the light. Master Yoda's Ataro is also an answer to weakness: the limitations of reach and mobility imposed by his stature and his age.''

Mace Windu has unmatched skills with the lightsaber.

This is the moment that defines Mace Windu. Not his countless victories in battle, nor the numberless battles his diplomacy has avoided. Not his penetrating intellect, or his talents with the Force, or his unmatched skills with the lightsaber.

Darth Sidious duel

No Caption Provided

Mace sinks into Vaapad ;

''Within the public office of the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, a last Jedi Master battled alone, blade-to-blade, against a living shadow. Sinking into Vaapad, Mace Windu fought for his life. More than his life: each whirl of blade and whipcrack of lightning was a strike in defense of democracy, of justice and peace, of the rights of ordinary beings to live their own lives in their own ways.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Mace's lightsaber was too fast to see...

''Vaapad, the seventh form of lightsaber combat, takes its name from a notoriously dangerous predator native to the moons of Sarapin: a vaapad attacks its prey with whipping strikes of its blindingly fast tentacles. Most have at least seven. It is not uncommon for them to have as many as twelve; the largest ever killed had twenty-three. With a vaapad, one never knew how many tentacles it had until it was dead: they move too fast to count. Almost too fast to see. So did Mace's blade.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Mace was the only living Jedi master who uses Vaapad...

''Vaapad is as aggressive and powerful as its namesake, but its power comes at great risk: immersion in Vaapad opens the gates that restrain one's inner darkness. To use Vaapad, a Jedi must allow himself to enjoy the fight; he must give himself over to the thrill of battle. The rush of winning. Vaapad is a path that leads through the penumbra of the dark side. Mace Windu created this style, and he was its only living master.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Mace is too fast for seen by Anakin, and it seems like a dozen of swords clashing...

''This was Vaapad's ultimate test. Anakin blinked and rubbed his eyes again. Maybe he was still a bit flash-blind-the Korun Master seemed to be fading in and out of existence, half swallowed by a thickening black haze in which danced a meter-long bar of sunfire. Mace pressed back the darkness with a relentless straightahead march; his own blade, that distinctive amethyst blaze that had been the final sight of so many evil beings across the galaxy, made a haze of its own: an oblate sphere of purple fire within which there seemed to be dozens of swords slashing in all directions at once.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Anakin fails to see Mace (though he could clearly sense them) and Palpatine ;

''The shadow he fought, that blur of speed-could that be Palpatine? Their blades flared and flashed, crashing together with bursts of fire, weaving nets of killing energy in exchanges so fast that Anakin could not truly see them-''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Darkness has no power on Mace ;

''Mace was deep in it now: submerged in Vaapad, swallowed by it, he no longer truly existed as an independent being. Vaapad is a channel for darkness, and that darkness flowed both ways. He accepted the furious speed of the Sith Lord, drew the shadow's rage and power into his inmost center- And let it fountain out again. He was not afraid. The darkness had no power over him.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Mace and Palpatine using every cubic centimeter in the room, and Mace feeling his shatterpoint ;

''Vaapad made him an open channel, half of a superconducting loop completed by the shadow; they became a standing wave of battle that expanded into every cubic centimeter of the Chancellor's office. There was no scrap of carpet nor shred of chair that might not at any second disintegrate in flares of red or purple; lampstands became brief shields, sliced into segments that whirled through the air; couches became terrain to be climbed for advantage or overleapt in retreat. But there was still only the cycle of power, the endless loop, no wound taken on either side, not even the possibility of fatigue. Impasse. Which might have gone on forever, if Vaapad were Mace's only gift. The fighting was effortless for him now; he let his body handle it without the intervention of his mind. While his blade spun and crackled, while his feet slid and his weight shifted and his shoulders turned in precise curves of their own direction, his mind slid along the circuit of dark power, tracing it back to its limitless source.

Feeling for its shatterpoint.''

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Finally, the duels ends ;

''Out where the shadow's fear made it hesitate. Out where the shadow's fear turned some of its Force-powered speed into a Force-powered grip on the slippery permacrete. Out where Mace could flick his blade in one precise arc and slash the shadow's lightsaber in half. One piece flipped back in through the cut-open window. The other tumbled from opening fingers, bounced on the ledge, and fell through the rain toward the distant alleys below. "For all your power, you are no Jedi. All you are, my lord," Mace said evenly, staring past his blade, "is under arrest."

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Mace was ready to finish ;

The lightning swallowed itself, leaving only the night and the rain, and an old man crumpled to his knees on a slippery ledge. "I ... can't. I give up. I ... I am too weak, in the end. Too old, and too weak. Don't kill me, Master Jedi. Please. I surrender." Victory flooded through Mace's aching body. He lifted his blade.

"You Sith disease-"

Source : Revenge of the Sith Novel

Because of his concentration on Sidious and his shatterpoint, he fails to see Anakin's betrayal...

''Before he could follow through on his stroke, a sudden arc of blue plasma sheared through his wrist and his hand tumbled away with his lightsaber still in it and Palpatine roared back to his feet and lightning speared from the Sith Lord's hands and without his blade to catch it, the power of Palpatine's hate struck him full-on. He had been so intent on Palpatine's shatterpoint that he'd never thought to look for Anakin's.''

Force Lightning vs. Vaapad

This deflection also causes scars at Sidious, which is implied more than once.

"He is a traitor, Anakin. Destroy him. You're the chosen one, Anakin," Mace said, his voice going thin with strain. This was beyond Vaapad; he had no strength left to fight against his own blade. "Take him. It's your destiny.'" Skywalker echoed him faintly. "Destiny ..."

"Help me! I can't hold on any longer!" The yellow glare from Palpatine's eyes spread outward through his flesh. His skin flowed like oil, as though the muscle beneath was burning away, as though even the bones of his skull were softening, were bending and bulging, deforming from the heat and pressure of his electric hatred. "He is killing me, Anakin-! Please, Anaaahhh-" Mace's blade bent so close to his face that he was choking on ozone. "Anakin, he's too strong for me-" "Ahhh-" Palpatine's roar above above the endless blast of lightning became a fading moan of despair. The lightning swallowed itself, leaving only the night and the rain, and an old man crumpled to his knees on a slippery ledge.

"I ... can't. I give up. I ... I am too weak, in the end. Too old, and too weak. Don't kill me, Master Jedi. Please. I surrender." Victory flooded through Mace's aching body. He lifted his blade.''

About the injury ;

''Bail slipped into the rear of the Naboo delegation's Senate pod as Palpatine thundered from the podium, "These Jedi murderers (Mace Windu and his friends) left me scarred, left me deformed,but they could not scar my integrity! They could not deform my resolve! The remaining traitors will be hunted down, rooted out wherever they may hide, and brought to justice, dead or alive! All collaborators will suffer the same fate. Those who protect the enemy are the enemy! Now is the time! Now we will strike back! Now we will destroy the destroyers! Death to the enemies of democracy!" The Senate roared.''

Mace Windu is a legend, easily my favorite character in Star Wars. They should do an animated solo series with Mace. Sam jackson can lend his voice and likeness to the character. I would watch it. He's one of the best at what he did. An extraordinary individual and badass.

A few additions.

Mace Windu is repeatedly stated to be the great champion of the Jedi Order:

"A grim Jedi Master with an amethyst-bladed lightsaber, Mace Windu was the champion of the Jedi Order, with little tolerance for the failings of the Senate, the arguments of politicians, or the opinions of rebellious Jedi."

-- StarWars.com: Databank

"Sidious then blasted Mace with Force lightning, sending the great Jedi champion plummeting to his death."

-- StarWars.com: Databank

"In the last years of the Republic, Mace Windu felt strange currents at work in the Force. Long the Jedi’s champion, he sought to maintain the Order’s ancient traditions amid galactic unrest and political corruption." 

-- StarWars.com: Databank

"Before Mace's blow could land, a desperate Anakin ignited his own saber and struck off Mace's hand. Sidious then blasted Mace with Force Lightning, killing the Order's great champion."

-- StarWars.com: Biographry Gallery

Mace Windu possesses enormous power:

"Second only to Grand Master Yoda in authority and Force strength, Mace Windu wields tremendous power."

-- Star Wars: The Force Inside

A hyperbolic source claims that Mace is Yoda's equal:

" Perhaps only Mace Windu equaled [Yoda] in skill and reputation..."

-- Power of the Jedi

Mace Windu is renowned as a fighter:

"During the Clone Wars, Mace’s forays onto the battlefield showed why he was renowned as a warrior."

Mace Windu is a legendary Jedi Master:

"In the latter days of the Old Republic, Yoda served as Grand Master of the Jedi Council, conferring with legendary Jedi Masters like Mace Windu and Ki-Adi-Mundi on matters important to the Republic."

-- StarWars.com: Databank

Mace Windu is among the greatest of Jedi Masters:

"Palpatine held regular meetings with Yoda, Mace Windu, and other top-ranking Jedi, and even the greatest Jedi Masters failed to see the evil Sith Lord lurking beneath the good-natured politician."

-- StarWars.com: Biography Gallery

Some sources about how Mace gained the edge over Sidious in their duel:

"The Jedi barged into Palpatine's most private offices. Mace attempted to arrest the Chancellor, but Palpatine sprang into action. Brandishing a lightsaber, Palpatine dropped the guise of harmless politician and emerged as deadly Sith Lord. Sidious quickly killed Tiin, Kolar and Fistoand forced Windu back into the main office chamber. Just then, Anakin Skywalker arrived, disobeying Windu's direct order. Windu had disarmed Sidious and cornered the treacherous Sith Lord into the frame of his expansive office window. Fearing that Sidious was too powerful to take prisoner -- the Dark Lord still had control of the Senate and courts -- Windu moved to deliver a deathblow. Torn between his loyalties, and needing Palpatine alive to fulfill his quest for arcane knowledge to preserve the life of his beloved, Anakin acted. In an emotionally charged action, Anakin ignited his lightsaber blade and sheared off Mace Windu's weapon hand before he could strike Palpatine."

-- StarWars.com: Databank(Old)

"Mace prevailed and appeared to defeat Sidious."

Mace Windu was considered to be one of the foremost duelists in the Jedi Order:
