Okay, this is Anakin Skywalker. In 19 BBY (When ROTS takes place.) Now, imagine this scenario:

Qui-Gon gets killed by Maul.

Obi-Wan: "But Master Yoda, I promised I'd Qui-Gon I'd train the boy."

Yoda: "Qui-Gon's defiance I sense in you. Need that, you do not. Too young to train the boy you are. Take him as my padawan, I will."

Now, instead of having Obi-Wan's training for 13 years, he's got Yoda's. And consider that in, what, a month of Yoda's training Luke was telekinetically lifting several medium-sized objects while standing on his head, and was powerful enough to defeat Darth Vader.

So, Anakin runs the gaunlet. All characters are in peak form. Anakin gets full rest between opponents. And this is All-Out on Coruscant -

1. Ommin & Warb Null.
2. Exar Kun.
3. Mace Windu.
4. Darth Caedus.
5. Darth Bane.
6. DE Luke.
7. DE Darth Sidious.

He gets how far? Proceed...


EDIT: Jeez. Sorry about that. Could REX move this into the vs. subforum?

EDIT- Wait. wat. haermm


The hypothetical'ness of this thread is over 9000. Who knows how strong he'd be with Yoda's training? He'd be a hell of a lot smarter too.

I say he makes it to Bane, maybe.

LOL! But yeah, I intentionally made it so. With all the serious, hardcore debates, a nice what-if is fun, I'd think.

That was basically a crash course in Force-training, and Luke was already, what, twenty-three? About the same age as Anakin at the time of the Republic's fall? He's starting the training at a much older age than his father did, and he's more mature and level-headed. Not to mention that there was obviously so much room for improvement.

I don't think training under Yoda would've made Anakin some sort of powerhouse - you forget that he was basically trying to turn Luke into a weapon to defeat Vader and the Emperor, which was why he and Kenobi were so put-off by Luke's early departure from the training, even though there was "another."

I think one thing it would have done is turn Anakin's already impressive saber skills to nigh-invincible levels. Instead of sparring against Obi-Wan for hundreds of hours, he'd be going toe-to-toe with the most powerful Jedi in history to that point.

Faunus
If, y'know, Yoda gave up being Grandmaster of the Jedi Order. Obi-Wan only joined the Council a few months before Anakin's knighting, so he had time.

And somehow, I don't see Yoda doing much sparring.

Enyalus
Well, poo on you, I say!

sad

See now, Anakin trained by Vader would've been absurd, as paradoxical as it is. See Starkiller for reference.

Dude. Don't even go there. How is Vader going to train him? He doesn't know Force Lightning and he's a slower duelist than most top tiers. Galen's rise to the near-top makes zero sense.

But seriously, "what-if" threads are gay.

Unless they're made by me. See, I'm full of win, and thus anything I write becomes purely awesome literature.

I am more interested to know what would have happened if luke joined vader in TESB.

The rise and fall of darth vader hinted at what would have happened though.

Short version of what would've happened: The already vastly overpowered Luke using Dark Sider techniques and killing without mercy. The end.

Note that in Dark Empire, after Luke gives in to the Dark Side, Leia notes that "the Dark Side is more powerful than ever." This coming from the woman who met with Palpatine while he was vastly empowered on Byss prior to that assessment, so...

Yeah. Luke = ultimate powerhouse.

Enyalus
I am Gideon's father...

Faunus
My avatar is no father of Gideon the Foolish. Do you wish to be... ASSIMILATED?!

Enyalus
Nossa. Please, massa. Not that.

*does a jig*

Faunus
The JJB-lingo isn't helping. ABANDAN YOOR BOI!!

Enyalus

You're Gideon's mother now?

Master Crimzon
No. I'm the self-righteous neighbor everyone likes.

Faunus
Likes, murders and buries in the backyard, what's the difference?

Master Crimzon
None at all!
