This quote - legit or nah?

An imposing figure with ghostly pale features, prominent Sith tattoos, a gleaming red lightsaber, and devastating Dark Side power, Malak struck terror into the hearts of his former allies. He also wore a vocal mask that may have concealed a form of cybernetic life-support. Did it provide him with powers far greater than even Exar Kun or Freedon Nadd, or was cybernetic enhancement too simple an explanation?

―Wizards of the Coast: Darth Malak

Azronger, given the shit that you take as legit, yeah, it's legit.

Though Ant, tbf if you take the red-text quotes seriously, I don't see why you shouldn't take this one as such too.

What are the reasons against its legitimacy?

I take all quotes, feats, etc. as subjective. I don't regard the Foundry quote as definitive, but rather evidence.

Same applies here, but when this is the only evidence in a stream of contrary evidence, I'm inclined to dismiss it.

That being said, it's pretty lawl to say Kun could one-shot Malak if a source is establishing something like this.

The only reason that I can think of that people would bring up off the top of my head is that WotC has said a lot of ridiculous shit. Though I doubt that's a sufficient answer for you.

That's fallacious reasoning, yeah.

By "contrary evidence," I didn't mean outright contradictory.

Then what did you mean?

That quote is solely applicable within the context of the Star Wars Miniatures Game. This one - from the looks of things - is applicable to the actual continuity.

MythLord is online now!

Given this source says Sidious > Caedus >/~ Revan > all other Sith and Yoda ~ Vader ~ Mace Windu > Dooku ~ Obi-Wan ~ Bastila... No, I don't take it as canon.

Malak > Kun isn't explicitly contradicted, as far as I know.

Fallacy of composition. Dismissed.

Also, see my response to TenebrousWay.

Indeed.

Also, for anyone wondering for the context of the quote, here's the full article:

As you can see, it's lore-related, not gameplay-related.

Why's it matter? It doesn't answer the question if Malak is better than Kun or not.

What is suppose to be legit here? I mean the quote isn't saying anything, it's asking a question. It isn't confirming anything if it's asking something. So the question is legit I suppose.

Can people really not read? The quote is asking by what means did Malak grow far more powerful than Exar Kun.
