Star Wars scene stealer No 1: Darth Maul
Darth Maul was the face of The Phantom Menace when it was released in theaters. The mysterious dark warrior with a face that resembled a Cherry Coke can and his double-bladed red lightsaber captivated fans across the globe, and they were intrigued to see what this Darth Maul brought to the table.
While his appearance in The Phantom Menace was brief, it was extremely memorable. Maul was a horrifying character to look at with his horned, tattooed face and red and yellow evil eyes. Though looking like a monster, Maul surprisingly spoke in a mellow smooth voice.
Maul basically redefined how a lightsaber battle in Star Wars should look. His attacking style was almost graceful while also being aggressive. It was almost like a dance and the way he wielded that double-sided lightsaber to fight off two Jedi at once, was truly impressive.
Darth Maul was a very capable warrior and was strong enough to take down the mighty Qui Gon Jinn. While he got cut in half and apparently died at the end of the film, fans were ecstatic to see that wasn’t this end, and his return in The Clone Wars, Solo, and Rebels fleshed out his story and gave him an arc that was nearly as cool as his overall look.
Darth Maul was an amazing addition to Star Wars and stole the show every time he showed up in The Phantom Menace.
