Count Dooku Clone Wars

I have become more powerful than any Jedi. Even you.
~ Count Dooku to Master Yoda

Summary

Count Dooku, also known as Darth Tyranus or Lord Tyranus, was a Human Jedi Master and the former Padawan of Jedi Grand Master Yoda as well as the official head of the Separatist forces. Once one of the most respected members of the Jedi Order, the death of his former Padawan, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, as well as the corruption he saw in the Republic left him disillusioned with the Order, resulting in his departure. He eventually fell under the sway of Darth Sidious, becoming the Dark Lord's second apprentice and an exceedingly dangerous foe of the order he once served.

Attack Potency: At least Town level (Should be superior to Plo Koon), likely City level (Yoda deflected his Force Lightning "far from easily" during their fight in Attack of the Clones. Was also one of the most powerful Jedi the Order had ever produced. Killed Asajj Ventress); also able to cut those with durability similar to General Grievous' with lightsaber | Multi-Continent level (Yoda deflected his Force Lightning "far from easily" during their fight in Attack of the Clones. Was also one of the most powerful Jedi the Order had ever produced. Is also roughly comparable to but weaker than Darth Vader by word of Sidious, and should be above the likes of High Council members such as Yarael Poof )

Speed: Subsonic running speeds with Force Speed, Hypersonic combat speeds (Should be comparable to the likes of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Has kept up with Anakin and Obi-Wan in two-on-one duels multiple times), Massively Hypersonic reactions augmented by precognition (Comparable to Obi-Wan and Mace Windu who were able to react to and deflect lasers) | Relativistic (Is a peer of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul); FTL Combat and Reaction Speed (Described by narration as swinging his Lightsaber at faster than light speeds)

Stamina: Superhuman+ (As a former Jedi Master and a powerful Dark Lord of the Sith, Dooku's stamina greatly exceeded what is considered normal for a man of his advanced age. However, protracted battles where he is forced to defend himself against an aggressive and powerful opponent can drain his stamina far more quickly)

Range: Extended melee range with lightsaber. Tens of meters with Force powers. Likely interplanetary with Force senses (Should be comparable if not superior in this aspect to the likes of Obi-Wan and Ventress, who were able to sense when Anakin had left the Teth planetary system) | Extended melee range with his lightsaber. Tens of kilometers with telekinesis (Should be comparable if not superior to the likes of Saesee Tiin, who could telekinetically hurl B2 super battle droids up to 4 km away). Stellar with Force powers (Per the Force Secret "distant power"). Galactic with telepathy.

Standard Equipment: His unique curved hilt lightsaber (it had a blue crystal when he was still a Jedi but sported a red crystal after his turn to the Sith)

Intelligence: One of the finest lightsaber duelists ever produced by the Jedi Order, Dooku is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. Although he possessed in-depth knowledge of all seven lightsaber forms, he specialized in the use of Makashi, the second official lightsaber form. As such his bladework is tailor-made for facing others in single combat. Nevertheless, he easily overwhelmed both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, both renowned duelists in their own right, in their first encounter despite taking both Jedi at the same time. His masterful bladework emphasizes speed and economy of movement to breach any gap in his foes' defenses, making fools of both of the Jedi who faced him due to their comparatively clumsy skill with a lightsaber. At the time of his departure from the order, Dooku was also among the only Jedi alive who could best Mace Windu in a spar with Jedi Grand Master Yoda as his only other peer. He was also an excellent teacher, having been the instructor of the well-respected Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn as well as the infamously successful Jedi Hunter General Grievous, the latter of whom matched several Jedi Knights and Masters at once under Dooku's tutelage. He was also also incredibly skilled in the Force, being a master of telekinesis, telepathy, Force Healing, Force Valor, Qey'tek meditation and other disciplines, skills he retained and even strengthened after falling to the Dark Side. In addition to his dueling prowess and mastery of the Force, Dooku is a cunning strategist, diplomat, and politician, scoring enough victories over the Jedi and the Republic to turn the Clone Wars into a stalemate despite their best efforts and swaying numerous nations to the Separatist cause.

Weaknesses: Like all Sith, Dooku suffers from a measure of overconfidence, particularly showcased during his final battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, not anticipating how much their power and skills had grown nor did he expect Sidious' ultimate betrayal. Dooku's lightsaber dueling form, Makashi, suffers from a critical flaw: raw kinetic power. As a result, opponents who are able to match him in skill and overwhelm him through physical force can drain his Force reserves and physical strength to the point of exhaustion through a protracted battle, leading to his death at Skywalker's hands.

Notable Attacks/Techniques

Disney Abilities

  • Form II (Makashi): The second form of Lightsaber combat, Makashi was a style breed for Lightsaber combat it was described as elegant and focused, and was based on balance and footwork to outmaneuver opponents. Fluidity and economy of motion were relied on, rather than strength, with Form II blade work heavily utilizing jabs and light cuts rather than hack and slash movements. Although it was designed for Lightsaber combat it wasn't designed for blaster bolt deflects or effectiveness against multiple enemies but Dooku has trained to have an effect in both areas.
  • Force Barrier: A defensive Force power that creates a barrier or wall of Force energy around the intended target, be it self, friend, or foe. Depending on the strength of the individual, the barrier could only withstand a few attacks before collapsing.
  • Force Lightning: An offensive Force technique that uses Force energy to produce electricity with one or two hands that stream outwards from the fingertips, its speed is usually great enough to catch an opponent off-guard even when prepared, and can be used either in bursts, or simply torrent out in an a gush of agony on its victim.
  • Telekinesis: Darth Tyranus can use this through the Force to put his mind literally over matter, capable of blasting opponents, shielding himself or disarming people, its limits are only those of the creativity that Force User has. Darth Tyranus has demonstrated considerable prowess with the power, even overpowering a telekinetic blast from Anakin Skywalker after he had ascended to the rank of Jedi Knight.
  • Telepathy: Can easily manipulate others mentally with the Force to trick, deceive, maim, or even kill outright. Darth Tyranus has a considerable mastery over this power, able to probe for hidden thoughts in the minds of others and learn them for himself.
  • Tutaminis: Through the Force, Darth Tyranus can draw potentially harmful energy into his body and diffuse it or channel it away completely. Darth Tyranus demonstrated this power when he used the Force to deflect his own Force Lightning.
