Darth Vader Canonically Superior to Darth Nihilus?

I've heard rumors that there's a quote floating around out there that states/confirms that Vader>Nihilus (in Legends). Whoever has it or knows of it, would you mind posting it?

Ant has it, and he hasn't publicly posted it yet to my knowledge.

Even so, it's Avellone's opinion; and therefore isn't canon by any stretch of the imagination.

That would further back the notion of Nihilus being(overrated)
You have thon being able to pull of similar feats.

Depending on the interpretation there's certainly a case to be made for Nihilus to be super overrated regarding his actual powers.

No canon confirmation. Avellone said he considered Sidious and Vader to be "the ultimate dark side badasses" though, so maybe that's what they mean?

It doesn't matter. All of this is irrelevant; Bane is the most powerful Sith.

It would certainly put a lid on the mouths of these salivating fanboys. Not that Vader isn't>Nihilus even without that quote.

Yeah. How dare a person who has shown better scaling not be better than Nihilus?

Nihilus ripped the Ravager out of Malachor.

Unless Vader's shown Star Destroyer+ lifting feats, he's out of his league.

Wasn't he stated to be much more powerful than Kar Vastor? Someone who was much more powerful than Mace Windu. He was also stated to be better than Grevious, just after the suit.
And that was Vader just after the suit, ROTJ Vader is infinitely better.
This could be sketchy though, because it doesn't make sense at all. It was just stated.
But Vader has tons of other stuff too.

kar vastor was not much more powerful than windu, otherwise windu wouldn't have been able to ground his force choke:
quote:
"Jedi Padawans learn to counter Force kinesis before they even begin lightsaber training. Still in the air, Mace sensed the flow of power that held Vastor's grip upon him; with a sigh, he allowed his center-Vastor's point of Force contact-to relax and ground Vastor's power back into the jungle around them..."

Additionally that was a pre-prime windu who's performances as a duelist were well below Dooku's. Mace in his prime is noted to be above dooku as an 8 bordering 9 while dooku is a plain 8.
