@darthant66: Where did you find this?
@kilius: Not according to the damage we see on his chest plates, most notably along the left side. It requires a trained eye to spot the missing pieces.
Quite the list.
Don't forget Bram Stoker, Gaston Leroux, P.G. Woodhouse, Stephen King and Peter Benchley. Those authors were/are very hardcore.
ROTS Grievous was also hindered on Utapau, if we consider his injuries during the Battle of Coruscant.
@in-sidiousvader: Sorry, I was little mixed up with Jensaarai1's tier system. Tier 8 will do. And you're forgiven. Always good to do your research.
Plus, I wouldn't say Sora was beaten by Mace so easily. His back happened to be against a part of the Bulq estate likely to collapse, given its condition, and he was Force Pushed right into it. It's all about location, location, location...
All I know is that Sora's no match for the likes of a Dark Lord of the Sith—we've seen how he fared against Tyranus—or Master Yoda.
@erkan12: I did put in italics to emphasize the words highlighted in the comics, but if you insist.
I just reread the entire thing and I have to say, Sora is about around a Tier 8. But you of course neglected his blood lust, which just turns him into an animal.
I don't recall reading anything about Sora lusting for blood in the comics; he seemed perfectly calm and disciplined in the majority of his appearances. And the only case he ever acted this way was towards Tholme, who had been a major thorn in his side for five months; not to mention the fact that Darth Tyranus scolded him, along with Bok and Rath Kelkko, for being unable to stop the Jedi's acts of sabotage. As I look at the scene where Sora prepares to kill Tholme, I'm reminded of a certain quote Megatron used as he mortally wounded Optimus Prime:
"I have waited an eternity for this. It's over, Prime..."Transformers: The Movie (1986)
"I have waited an eternity for this. It's over, Prime..."
When Quin got in the way, Sora switched gears and almost succeeded in both driving the Kiffar to the dark side and killing him. Good thing Quin had a little help from his friends.
So I ask you: If Sora is an animal, then why did Tyranus put him in charge of the Tibrin government until a replacement could be found for the late Suribran Tu? If Sora is "around a Tier 8," then why was he given such high praise for his skill and power? Why was he able to land a Force Push on Mace Windu, of all Jedi?
@in-sidiousvader, @vitisid, @fairtrade, @wollfmyth209, and @erkan12: Okay, I've just completed this baby. Be sure to re-read it again, in case you haven't already. Sorry for the mess.
I concur wholeheartedly, with explanations of my own:

Come a long way since Naboo, hasn't he?
Sweet! By the way, Apocalypse Krayt used a Force barrier to resist Abeloth's telekinetic attack, and the way he held onto her must've required massive strength and willpower for someone of his advanced age:
Abeloth loosed a Force blast, trying to drive the stranger off. He held tight. So did Luke, and all three went tumbling across the lake in a snarled mass of limbs and tentacles.Apocalypse

Incredible, isn't it?
That's a very well written argument. Let's not forget that Maul came close to beating Sidious at age 17 on Hypori:
Anger and hatred welled up in Maul, and he drew renewed strength from the dark side. Hurling himself at Darth Sidious, he nearly bested his master with a flurry of deadly lightsaber blows. Sidious barely deflected them all.The Dark Side Sourcebook

He also nearly succeeded back on Mandalore:
You can tell by the look on Sidious' face. Really had to work for until... he smiled. At last. He was winning.
It's just like what happened between him and Yoda in that lightning lock.
