|~ Grievous to Ki-Adi Mundi and the other Jedi at the Battle of Hypori|
General Grievous, born Qymaen jai Sheelal in the Legends continuity, was the Supreme Commander of the Armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars against the Galactic Republic. A Kaleesh warlord from the planet Kalee, he chose to have his body modified with numerous cybernetics and was trained by Count Dooku in all lightsaber combat forms, making him an incredibly dangerous foe to even the greatest of Jedi.

Intelligence: Having been personally trained by Count Dooku, one of the greatest lightsaber duelists ever produced by the Jedi Order, Grievous is a master of multiple forms of lightsaber combat and could overwhelm multiple Jedi at once. Feared as a Jedi hunter, his collection of dozens of lightsabers proved his effectiveness in combat, easily adapting to various Jedi tactics before going in for the kill. He is also a skilled pilot and marksman, often clashing with Republic forces in his own starfighter and with blaster weaponry when necessary. He is also pragmatic, resorting to any means of victory in combat, including involving innocents in the crossfire as well as using his Magnaguards to attack his opponents from behind as he continued to press on them from the front. However, he is quite arrogant and self-assured, and sometimes underestimates his targets once he has the upper hand and will fail to counter for outside factors, such as Hondo Ohnaka using a starfighter to intervene in Grevious' battle with Ahsoka Tano. | In the Legends continuity, Grievous is a military genius and a brilliant strategist who can hide his elaborate strategies with seemingly chaotic formations and maneuvers designed to create misconceptions and thus exploitable errors on the part of his opponents. Developing his own, personalized lightsaber combat style, he could overwhelm multiple members of the Jedi Council at once with his relentless, lightning-fast assault, even matching the Vaapad style developed by Mace Windu, who was arguably the Jedi's greatest warrior at the time. However, Dooku has criticized Grievous' lightsaber technique as lacking finesse and being overly reckless at times, which ultimately led to Grievous' final defeat when the defensively oriented Obi-Wan Kenobi frustrated Grievous to the point of creating an opening that Kenobi exploited to sever Grievous' limbs and later his chest cavity.
Weaknesses: His vital organs have not undergone modification, rendering them exceedingly vulnerable to any form of attack if his chest cavity is pried open, He is somewhat arrogant and will often fail to accommodate for factors outside of his control when he has the upper hand.
