I agree with you quanchi about Mace being in the upper level of dueling and my point is neither contradicting what GL said nor what was shown.
Sid killed 3 Masters quickly. 4 vs 1. Enough time for Mace to amp from this dark side. That Sid had far more power lef to fight before “giving up“ was shown when he force fried Mace.

Sidious was unable to kill Windu because he was on his level. Wondu used his abilities to defeat Sidious., Sidious went from screaming he will kill him to changing his tune once he realized he couldn't best him. He needed Anakin so he had to play the victim once he realized he wasn't powerful to defeat Sidious on his own.

As Mace can factually compete with Sids, I highly doubt Sids could just one-shot him with the force.

How is information from the novelisation speculative ?

It is well known by now that the shatterpoint Windu exploited was Anakin's. Such information from the novel is not speculative, it's what it said ...

As for the force, Sidious' lightning is described as being too much for Vaapad, and it's heavily implied that Sidious could eventually overpower Windu's blade, as it is described as literally bending back and almost touching Windu.

Movie is canon. The novel is canon. It's speculation to say Sidious could have won. He didn't. He lost. He begged for his life. It does bend back but not enough to change Sidious from being the one on the receiving end of the fl. He was taking damage from the fl so please stop acting like the damage wasn't affecting him. He had no choice but to change his tactics.

The FL was hurting them both. That's clear in all sources.

Sidious was taking much more of the punishment and was massively scarring himself. He couldn't keep that up longer than Windu could deflect it.

Says who?

Windu’s screaming hardly suggested he could hold it off indefinitely.

I despise Windu as a character. He beat Sidious and your denial of the facts influenced by your bias would case a blind man to see.

I have always said his scarred him. Trolls pretend it didn't do what we see on screen. Your opinion is based off bias not my own.
