Who succeeded better at their destined prophecy? Anakin as 'the Chosen One' or Darth Bane as the 'Sith'ari'?

The First order still exists in Canon so Anakin never truly defeated the darkside, and if anything the remnants of the empire/Snokes relative success in comparison to Luke living as a hermit/the orders Extinction leads me to believe Anakin wasn't as successful unless you want to play semantics and say Anakin was only intended to "bring balance" and destroy Sidious not utterly destroy the darkside or the empire.

In Legends Sidious comes back and the Sith still exist calling into Anakins sacrifice entirely

Anakin's legacy is literally that he murdered Bane's legacy. I think the winner here is obvious.

Which is totally why Sidious returned in Dark Empire, lel

Bane's legacy outlived the prophecy of the Chosen One, and given the Force seemed to have not really been at all balanced after Sheev's death (in either canon or EU) it's obvious that Anakin failed. Bane did not.

Anakin because Bane wasn't even the Sith'ari to begin with.

Because of Anakin, Bane's ultimate plan failed. bane dies

thesithmaster
Depends.
In Legends, Anakin won.
In Canon, neither of them, really. Bane's Sith Order died at the hands of Anakin, but the Jedi+New Republic got absolutely streamrolled by the First Order that, while a Dark Side organization, is not Sith.

Check out the living embodiment of the dark side section of my Sidious thread too. It explains how Sidious is the Sith'ari.
