Also, did anyone notice that the Bendu said that Attalion was made to be hard to find ON PURPOSE? That planet even now has been stated again and again to be very ALIEN. Creatures unabled to be controlled by the Force, the Bendu, it's very primordial. Something tells me that's one of those mysteries that books and comics might explore, but nothing the show will cover thanks to the events of the Finale. Also the Bendu is totally not gone. He's gonna be a factor again in some form in the Star Wars universe. At the very least, he ****ed with Thrawns head a bit.
It's clear that the Bendu is more a 'champion' of nature itself, of whom is fundamental to the very balance/superstructure of the Force itself, than a mere physical being who is just really strong with the Force, imo. His characterization is very much reminiscent of 'The Ones' in that sense -- as is the 'alien' nature of his home planet to an extent. And as was mentioned: the lightning he generated en gros(with seeming ease, mind you) was far and away the most powerful we've seen in canon... Made Palpatine's lightning look like f*cking sparklers by comparison.
*Also keep in mind: for the most part it seemed like Bendu was trying to use fear/intimidation to just scare everyone off his planet, than actually trying to obliterate them all outright -- he gave AMPLE time for them to flee unmolested, after all. With that in mind, I would be curious to see what'd happen if he just fully let loose without any sort of regard for 'teh balance'..?
"The Grand Admiral was smart and subtle, but never used his brilliance to show up or humiliate anyone.
He demanded results, but never perfection, and had amazing stores of patience for those who were truly working to their fullest ability.
It was a pity Thrawn's style of leadership hadn't spread through the rest of the navy.
If that happened, he suspected, the Empire would stand forever."
