@wollfmyth209: 1.I've seen no evidence suggesting that is what occurred at all. Kun ripped his spirit from his body, rendering his body comatose. The spirit was bound to the spiritual realm by Kun's existence.

You continue to claim that there was this big spiritual battle. When really it was just Luke attacking Kun and achieving nothing.

2.It's not just minor TP, he dominates his mind from across the galaxy; keeping him corrupted to boot, and forces him into an action that he absolutely did not want to commit. It goes as far as to describe him as a puppet.

3.That the spirit of Kun was doing all of this, besides channelling whirlwinds through Streen that could launch Jedi thousands of feet into the air and all the rest, absolutely puts him beyond an inferior Luke than the one he'd already faced.

4.Not really, Leia says Kueller's capabilities to wield the Force is greater than anyone else's she has met in years, bar Kun. Keep in mind that Kueller's big deal is that he's constantly feeding on the genocides he is inciting. That's the context to consider. The fight with Luke is irrelevant. Kueller is capable of becoming more powerful than Luke, but not Kun.

@meatpants: As if Jinn's accolade automatically places him above Baras, Malgus as of Decieved was one of the most powerful Sith Lords ever and Baras scales from him.

Freedon Nadd is objectively superior in every conceivable way. Heck, Ommin should be a more even fight.

@redshift_bacon: Revan knows everything Kun does? Source? Because he very much doesn't. Kun has sources of knowledge that died with him.

Kun honestly tendril spams the guantlet and wins.

I like how razer posts those as if everyone didn't already know about them and proceeds to fail to realise that the KotOR:CG along with Peña's statement retconned it. It was done via the Force, and no appeals to vagueness are not grounds for dismissal.

Kun's mere presence on Thule; a gargantuan planet, for a few months at most, imbued the very crust of the world with dark side miasma.

That feat utterly dwarfs Vitiate spending 'great energy' on perfecting rituals to imbue the atmosphere of Dromund Kaas with the same. The only slightly comparable feat is the 'vague' one by Plagueis meeting Sheev, which apparently caused a winter and whatever. Hell, Sidious and his acolytes took years(decades?) to transform Byss into a dark side nexus.

@wollfmyth209:

There's a clear control of Luke's Force essence on Kun's part as Luke states he was bound to Kun:

With a wheezing cough as he expelled long-trapped air from his lungs and drew in a fresh breath, Master Skywalker groaned and sat up on the stone platform.

"You've-done it!" Luke said, gaining strength from each lungful of cool, clean air. The new Jedi Knights surged toward him. "You have broken the bonds."

Exar Kun's spirit was simultaneously controlling and corrupting Kyp beyond his own will:

And then the haunting voice of Exar Kun rose to a wail in his mind, an utterly forlorn scream as if he were being torn out of this universe and exiled to another place entirely, where he could torment Kyp Durron no more. Kyp snapped backward in his control seat as if an invisible tow cable had been severed. His arms and head dangled like a puppet with suddenly snipped strings. The cool wind of freedom whistled through his mind and body. He blinked his eyes and shuddered with revulsion at what he had been about to do.

Then of course there's the Kueller scaling. I've realised that Leia refers to what power Kueller could have and not what he has currently.

It's almost as if I wrote a god damn respect thread with an entire section about it.

I also honestly couldn't give a shit about what you trust.

@redshift_bacon: Sidious does not know everything Kun knows. The exact opposite is stated, in fact. Kun's sorcery is treated as entirely different from what Sidious has and statements confirm this is so. Kun having two hours of prep means he can pull out a whole bag of sorcery haxx that you just can't counter. Kun knows about Palpatine too, and he knows full well what he'd need to use to defeat him.

@dc77: Very well. But it's going to need to be a ground-breaking Dooku argument because Kun's scaling is absolutely disgustingly good.

@dc77: We've been over this, nothing suggests he can take Kun. Especially not with prep.
