Hmm, legends-wise, around Jedi Quest/AotC
In fact iirc Kenobi says that the only thing that keeps Anakin from truly surpassing him is his reckless and emotional nature.

Canon wise? Well TCW made that hard, I'd say it was near RotS but that's vague as hell.

In what? Skill, power, physical capabilities?

I'd say doing better against Dooku in AotC proves he altogether surpassed him (in Legends and Canon) in pretty much every respect bar intellect.

Not in skill imo. I don't think he ever surpassed his master in skill. In power and physicals though I'd say it was shortly after AotC.

It never stated.

But imo Anakin never surpassed Kenobi in technical skill.

Like Soara said. He has the potential to become the greatest Jedi ever(period) but his emotions and lack finesse get the better of him.

Never. I do remember him being stated to be one of the best Djem So practitioner Dooku has ever seen.

Any interesting category you want to talk about, ie:

Overall combative ability
Force mastery
Saber prowess
Technical saber skill

Imo Anakin is the superior to Kenobi in physical prowess and force mastery by a little after AotC. He is a superior overall combatant some time into the Clone Wars and imo he never surpasses his master in technical skill.

@doucheydouche and Beni.

I'm only laying down what Soara says to a Pre AotC Anakin.

Plus I don't see Anakin having a lot of finesse it's more raw strength than anythin(duh)

Erza admires and uses Anakin's training holograms. But I guess it's difficult to measure how technically skilled he is compared to Obi Wan; they specialize in different forms, after all.

What we do know is that Anakin can use jar'kai as a padawan sufficiently to surprise and put Dooku on the offense, and if we're using Legends, creates his new lightsaber form for his suit within a matter of weeks while incorporating elements from a variety of forms and fighting styles. He's obviously pretty technically skilled.

Let's see, your opinion, or Dooku's opinion.

Pretty sure Dooku is more valid.

Yeah where does the idea that strength based fighters lack technical sophistication come from?

Well it isn't my opinion, Anakin's stated to be reckless and emotional in combat in several sources so....?

Making rash decisions doesn't mean you lack finesse.
