The 'Lighter' Side Of The Force
its not possible, as said by yoda in the video, always two there are, no more, no less. how then could darth plagueis still exist? he cannot, even if he had been able to overcome death this would have prevented another sith from rising, e.g. darth maul couldn't exist at the same time as palpatine and plagueis disproving any evidence that jar jar is plagueis or any other sith lord. even after maul died palpatine took count duko as an apprentice, he became the next sith, and anikin after him.
The "rule of two" is not a physical limitation. It was set up by Darth Bane because for thousands of years, the members of the Sith empire were constantly killing each other for power and self gain leading to the ultimate downfall of their regime. It was set up as a rule so that There was a master and an apprentice of the Sith so the teachings would live on without thousands of Sith constantly trying to kill each other.
Sidious tried making Luke his apprentice while Vader was alive in ROTJ.
true but in that scenario I believe it was more implied that he would either strike down the sidious or vader to make his transition to the dark side complete
Sidious intention was for Luke to kill Vader and become his apprentice. Just as he did with Dooku being killed by Anakin.
Just because Yoda says there are always two does not mean that there cannot be more than two. For example, Dooku and Sidious were around, at the same time as Darth Maul ala the Clone Wars cartoon. (Which is canon.)
Maul was however left for dead.
And so was Plagueis! Lmao What's your point?
And yoda never even twigged that palpatine was a sith. So i wouldnt be listening to him.
Dark Force user does not = Sith1) star killer is vaders apprentice 1) Ventris was Tyranus apprentice Both Vader and Tyranus were Palpatines apprentice's so......
Tyranus was trying to usurp Palpatine and Anakin killed Tyranus before becoming Vader.
