Villain Overview
At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last, we will have revenge.
~ Darth Maul
The Sith. The Sith took everything from me. Ripped me from my mother's arms. Murdered my brother. Used me as a weapon and then cast me aside. Abandoned me! Once I had power, now I have nothing. Nothing.
~ Maul shares his tragic history with Ezra Bridger.
Formerly Darth. Now just Maul.
~ Maul rejects his title of Sith.

Darth Maul, later known as just Maul, is a major antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He was a Sith Lord and the first apprentice of Emperor Palpatine prior to the Battle of Naboo and his abandonment by his former master. A Zabrak Nightbrother male from Dathomir, Maul later resurfaced during the Clone Wars and sought revenge against all who had wronged him turning to a life of crime and terrorism and plunged much of the galaxy into fear and chaos in the process. He is the younger brother of Savage Opress and the archenemy of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Maul first appeared as the central antagonist of The Phantom Menace, the first film of the prequel trilogy. He later returned as a major antagonist in the 2008-2020 television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, serving as the final antagonist of Season 4, as one of the main antagonists of Season 5 (serving as the main antagonist of both the episode "Revival" and the Shadow Collective arc), and as the main antagonist of Season 7 (serving as the overarching antagonist of the Ahsoka's Journey arc, and as the main antagonist of the Siege of Mandalore arc). He also appeared once again as a major antagonist in the 2014-2018 television series Star Wars Rebels, appearing as one of the two main antagonists (alongside Darth Vader) of the two-part Season 2 finale, and as the secondary antagonist of Season 3. He next appeared as the overarching antagonist of Solo: A Star Wars Story. He is also the titular protagonist of Darth Maul: Son Of Dathomir, Darth Maul: Saboteur, and Maul: Lockdown; as well as the tritagonist of Darth Plagueis.

In The Phantom Menace and Solo: A Star Wars Story, he was portrayed by Ray Park, who also played Toad in X-Men. However, in The Phantom Menace, his voice was provided by Peter Serafinowicz, who also played Pete in Shaun of the Dead, the Agency Director in Rick and Morty and Iofur Raknison in His Dark Materials. In his TV appearances and Solo: A Star Wars Story, he was voiced by Sam Witwer, who also played Galen Marek/Starkiller in the Force Unleashed, the Son in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Agent Liberty in Supergirl.

Personality

He's a broken, unbalanced monster.
~ Obi-Wan describing Darth Maul.
Darth Maul is driven by pure hatred for all things, particularly the Jedi, though he does have a sense of honor, granting worthy foes quick deaths. He also had respect and possibly even attachment for Sidious, despite his torturous upbringing at his hands, but he also feared Sidious more than anything else, even after the two became enemies. Maul focuses on complete victory at any cost and even his master finds it somewhat terrifying how much pain he will endure to succeed in his goals. Maul bravely takes on any challenge, but is also extremely brutal, arrogant, aggressive and gloating, best exemplified by one point, where he believed he could fight and defeat the entire Jedi Order. Sidious often had to warn Maul to watch his pride, saying that he is no one-man army despite his fierce fighting skill.

Maul was once dependable and loyal to his master, but still wondered about his part in the Grand Plan of the Sith and knew he could not carry on the Sith's legacy, having only been trained as an assassin. He feared what might happen if Sidious were to meet his end unexpectedly, and had no idea of how to carry out the Grand Plan alone. Maul also realizes he cannot maintain any secret identity like Sidious does because of his appearance. He lacks a complete understanding of the galaxy despite his knowledge in the world of politics and crime, though he realizes the Jedi are the true enemy, not the Republic. Maul has no patience for the useless, but can take notice of the more talented. He is determined to be the greatest warrior via any means of self-improvement and his near-death at the hands of Obi-Wan has made him more bitter.

Darth Maul-0

Darth Maul (Star Wars series).

Maul is a cunning, ruthless, traitorous, and manipulative killer who has no qualms with killing civilians or using taunting to unsettle his opponents in battle. His time in isolation had made him more patient and able to function as a leader in his quest for revenge, not just a follower. Maul is determined to kill Sidious and his new apprentice, Count Dooku, whom he considers a pretender Sith, and later Darth Vader, who he saw as a dangerous opponent.

In his final moments, however, Maul lost most of his hatred for Obi-Wan, as he is embraced by him. When Obi-Wan confirms the fate of the Chosen One, Maul shares his belief that he (Luke Skywalker) would avenge them both. This concludes that Maul was not entirely the monster that most saw him as, but truly a tragic character who had lost everything he cared about due to Darth Sidious' actions, much like his successor Darth Vader.

Powers and Abilities

Your passions give you strength. And through strength you gain power. You have seen it. You feel it. You must break your chains.
~ Maul teaching Ezra the dark side of the Force.

Maul is extremely skilled and resourceful at wielding lightsabers and focuses more on physical skill than using spiritual and psychological tactics to crush his foes, though he has used these more lately. Maul is best known for his double-ended saberstaff the second blade of which he often used to catch his opponents off guard. He also combines his lightsaber wielding with hand-to-hand combat, making him a much more dangerous opponent.

When Maul cannot win with pure martial skill, he uses tactics to win the day. He is amazingly skilled in using the Force, which grants him telekinetic abilities such as Force choke, Force grip, and the power to send out blasts of Force lightning, which he can also resist. Maul is also skilled with technology, building his speeder bike and Dark Eye probe droids and modifying a protocol droid to become an assassin droid to protect his ship. Maul also possesses an extreme endurance to physical pain. Maul was also familiar with Nightsister magics, knowing a scrying spell that he used by mixing potions of magical ichor.

Relationships

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Maul has been Obi-Wan's nemesis since the day Maul killed Qui-Gon Jinn, the Jedi Master of Obi-Wan in 32 BBY. Enraged by the death of his master, Obi-wan fought with Maul with rage and after nearly falling into the void, he managed to raise himself up and cut Maul in two and watched him fall thinking he had killed Darth Maul.

During the 10 years he spent on Lotho Minor, Maul had gone mad and amnesiac, but he still remembered the one who ruined his life and cut off half of his body, even repeating his name in his moments of insanity. His hatred for Kenobi kept his spirit alive.

Maul would later meet Kenobi, bent on getting revenge against him. Years after the rise of the Empire, as Obi-wan was in hiding on Tatooine, Maul found him and challenged him to one final duel. After being defeated by Obi-Wan, the dying Maul shared his belief that the Chosen One (Luke Skywalker) would avenge them both by destroying the Sith.

Darth Sidious

Darth Sidious kidnapped Maul from his mother when he was young to raise and train him to be his apprentice. Maul trained hard under Sidious, whom Maul gained some sense of attachment to and thus devoted himself to serving his master's will. When Maul was seemingly killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sidious felt no real loss and simply replaced Maul with a new apprentice.

Over 10 years later, they met again, Maul pretending to wish to serve Sidious again, but the Sith Lord saw through Maul and dueled him and his brother, the latter of whom he killed while taking Maul to use as he saw fit. He used Maul as bait to lure out his mother and kill her, and when Maul escaped Sidious no longer considered him a real threat.

Maul's hatred and bitterness towards Sidious (and the Sith as a whole) spurred him to find ancient Sith artifacts to use to exact his revenge. He even believed that the prophecy of the Chosen One, who would destroy the Sith once and for all, would come true.

Both before and after Sidious abandoned him, Maul regarded his master with awe and fear.  Maul feared Sidious more than anything else, and sensing Sidious' imminent rise at the end of the Clone Wars put Maul under debilitating stress.  At times, Maul showed clear signs of fear and agitation when merely talking about Sidious. Shortly before Order 66 this reached the point were Maul preferred death to being delivered back to Palpatine.

Ezra Bridger

Ezra Bridger was tricked by Maul during their mission to Malachor into trusting him, paving the way for a potential master-apprentice relationship between the two. Maul also had an effect on Ezra with his words, causing him to begin to believe that to fight his enemies, he needed to think like them. Though Ezra currently sees Maul as an enemy and blames him in part for the supposed death of Ahsoka Tano, Maul still currently believes that Ezra may yet join him.

In the end, thanks to Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ezra was saved from Maul's temptations to lure him over to the dark side.

Dryden Vos

Maul is the secret head of the Crimson Dawn syndicate, but he lets Vos act as the face and handle the day-to-day operations. After Vos is killed by Qi'ra, Maul cows the latter into answering to him.

Savage Opress

Savage Opress was Maul's elder brother, though the two only formed a relationship as adults. Savage rescued Maul from madness on Lotho Minor and was instrumental in helping Mother Talzin to repair his body and mind. Maul insisted on treating Savage as his apprentice rather than his sibling, referring to him as "apprentice" and keeping him in a subordinate relationship.

However, Maul seemed to have genuinely loved Savage in some sense.  When he saw Sidious kill Savage, he reacted with sincere horror and grief, calling him "brother" and rushing to his side to comfort him during his final moments.  Even fifteen years later, Maul still mourned Savage, citing his death to Ezra as a grievance against the Sith.

Quotes

Tatooine is sparsely populated. If the trace was correct, I will find them quickly, Master.
~ Darth Maul to Darth Sidious.
Yes, my Master.
~ Darth Maul.
(Savage: Brother?) [Grab Savage's face] Brother. My...My legs. (Savage:They have been restored by Mother Talzin.) It has been so long and my path has been so dark, darker than I ever dreamed it could be. (Savage:And yet you survived.) Of course I survived. My hatred kept my spirit intact even though my body was not. Yet I was lost and became a rabid animal and such is how you found me, brother. Discarded, forgotten. I have missed so much. The Force feels out of balance. (Savage:Yes. There is conflict. The Clone Wars.) Oh, yes. So it began without me. (Savage:You can begin again, brother.) I was apprentice to the most powerful being in the galaxy once. I was destined to become so much more, but I was robbed of that destiny by the Jedi, by Obi-Wan Kenobi. (Savage:Then you must have your revenge, my brother.) Yes, we shall start with revenge.
~ Darth Maul after his mind is totally restored.
There will be more innocent blood on your hands, Kenobi, unless you come here, face me. Come alone and if you do not, this world [Executes his captives]...will burn.
~ Maul forces Obi-Wan to come to Raydonia or he will do more death.
Jedi! I have been waiting for you. (Obi-Wan: I'm not sure I've made your acquaintance.) I am surprised you could have forgotten me so easily after I killed your master and you left me for dead on Naboo. (Obi-Wan: It is you.) You may have forgotten me, but I will never forget you. You cannot imagine the depths I would go to to stay alive, fueled by my singular hatred for you. (Obi-Wan: That may be so, but I defeated you before, and I can defeat you again.) Don't be so certain.
~ The meeting between Darth Maul and Obi-Wan, ten years after their last fight.
Still as weak as ever. [Slap Obi-Wan and Savage bangs him against a wall before throwing him] And they call you, "Master". (Obi-Wan: You know, when I cut you in half, I should have aimed for your neck instead.) [Savage grabs Obi-Wan by the leg and throws him at Maul's feet] Anything more to say? (Obi-Wan: I like your new legs. They make you look taller.) [Makes Obi-Wan levitate by the Force, grabs him in the face and activates his lightsaber] I will make sure you stay awake long enough to feel every single cut. Your death will be beyond excruciating. You will suffer as I have suffered!
~ Maul and Savage tortures Obi-Wan after capturing him.
Your master, Qui-Gon Jinn, I gutted him while you stood helpless and watched. How did that make you feel, Obi-Wan? Your rage has unbalanced you. That is not the Jedi way, is it?
~ Maul taunting Obi-Wan about Qui-Gon's death.
(Vizsla: You're not Jedi. So what are you?) We are Sith. (Vizsla: Do you serve Count Dooku?) I serve no one. (Vizsla: I thought there could only be two Sith; a master and an apprentice.) We are brothers. The true Lords of the Sith. (Vizsla: What happened to your ship?) Destroyed by Jedi. (Vizsla: Do you know which Jedi?) Kenobi. (Vizsla: And what do you seek now, Sith?) Fortune and power.
~ Maul meets Pre Vizsla.
If they are weak, why do you wait? (Vizsla: The duchess has powerful allies, including your Jedi friend, Kenobi. He is also responsible for our exile. Perhaps fortune brought us together.) It is the will of the Force. We can help you reclaim Mandalore. And punish Kenobi for his trespasses. (Bo-Katan: We allied ourselves with Sith before. Count Dooku, he betrayed us. Sith are no better than Jedi. They claim to be powerful, but we put these two back together after the Jedi gutted them.) Doubt will only lead to failure. Hold! Our combined strength will be rewarded. Mandalore will be yours, and Kenobi, this Sith pretender Dooku, and all our enemies will fall.
~ Maul makes a alliance with the Death Watch.
I challenge you, one warrior to another! And only the strongest shall rule Mandalore!
~ Maul challenges Pre Vizsla in a duel to the death for control of Mandalore.
I claim this sword and my rightful place as leader of Death Watch. (Bo-Katan: Never. No outsider will ever rule Mandalore.) If you do not join me, you will all die. (Bo-Katan: You're all traitors.) Unfortunately for you, history will not see it that way. Execute them!
~ Maul become the new leader of Deathwatch after killing Viszla and threaten those who refuse to follow him.
I sense a presence. A presence I haven't felt since... Master. [Sidious show himself] Master. (Sidious: I am most impressed to see you have survived your injuries.) I used your training, Master. And I have built all this in hopes of returning to your side. (Sidious: How unfortunate that you are attempting to deceive me.) Master? (Sidious: You have become a rival!)
~ Maul meets Darth Sidious, his former master before fighting him.
(Jesse: You're wasting your time. I won't tell you anything.) How charming that you actually believe that statement to be true. Clones, bred for combat. All part of the plan. (Jesse: What plan? What are you talking about?) The plan. The only plan that matters. Not even I was made aware of its grand design, but I played my part. And do you know what happened to me? I was cast aside. I was forgotten. But I survived, and I can thrive in the chaos that is to come. Saxon, information is a valuable commodity. See to it that the Prime Minister does not become an asset to our enemy. (Gar Saxon: Yes, my lord.) Now, there are some things I need to know, and you're going to help me. We can go round and round in this circle if you want. (Jesse: I ain't telling you anything.) It is not up to you. Your mind will speak, or it will break. Tell me. Who is this Ahsoka Tano?
~ Maul tortures Jesse while ordering Gar Saxon to eliminate Almec.
You once liberated me from my imprisonment by Sidious and his apprentice. At the time I thought Dooku was an old fool. But now, now I see he and I are the same. One step behind. The dark side has never been stronger. (Rook: My lord, what does it mean?) Soon...the galaxy will be remade, and in the chaos, we must seize what power we can. It is not the way of your people to hide, here in the gutters. If you die, I promise you it will be on the field of battle. And if you die...you will die as warriors.
~ Maul talking about what will eventually become the Galactic Empire to his loyal Mandalorians warriors.
Watch out! Fire! Look at them. So blissfully ignorant. (Ahsoka: Care to tell me what this is all about? Or would you rather save it for the Council?) Oh, no, no. You are the one that I wish to speak with. Were you not cast out of your Order? (Ahsoka: I left voluntarily.) Yes, but you were motivated to leave by the hypocrisy of the Jedi Council. We were both tools for greater powers. (Ahsoka: I am here to bring you to justice.) Justice is merely the construct of the current power base. A base, which, according to my calculations, is about to change.(Ahsoka: And Darth Sidious is behind it?) He is behind everything. In the shadows, always, but soon, very soon, he will reveal himself. (Ahsoka: With your help, the Jedi can stop Sidious before its too late.)Too late for what? The Republic to fall? It already has and you just can't see it. There is no justice, no law, no order. Except for the one that will replace it. The time of the Jedi has passed. They cannot defeat Sidious. But together, you and I can. Every choice you have made...has led you to this moment.
~ Maul convincing to form an alliance with Ahsoka
We could have destroyed Sidious! (Ahsoka: Only for you to take his place!)
~ Maul to Ahsoka towards the end of their fight.
Let me go. Let me die. You're all going to BURN! WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING!
~ Maul screaming in terror before being stunned and captured
You…You survived. (Ahsoka: Is this your doing? Choose your words carefully.) No, no, it was not my doing. I do not know what has occured, but surely, you have felt it. The voices crying out. The death. (Ahsoka: The clones turned against me. Even Rex. I don't know why, they just suddenly weren’t themselves.) Brilliant, brilliant. I was not privy to my master’s plan, but now, now I see it. He turned the Jedi's own army against them.
~ Maul during the Order 66.
I know where you are. You're with me. Please put your weapon away. I...I mean you no harm. (Ezra: Stay back! I'm warning you, old man.) Forgive me, it... It's just, I've been alone so long. It's been years since I've spoken to anyone.(Ezra: You live here alone? Uh, in the dark?) Not by choice. My ship crashed. I'm trapped, marooned. I've had to scrounge and scrape to survive. (Ezra: Look, I'm sorry. Okay? I wish I could help you, but I have to get back to my friends.) Well, perhaps I could help you. (Ezra: I doubt that.) Why are you here? (Ezra: I'm not gonna tell you that.) You came for the same reason I did, years ago. You seek knowledge. (Ezra: It's in the temple, isn't it?) And I know the secret way to get inside, but, but I'm too old. I...I...I need help to open the door. (Ezra: What's inside?) Help me and find out. (Ezra: Show me this doorway.) Please, this way. (Ezra:You first.) Do you not trust me? (Ezra: I don't know you.) W-Well, then let's change that. Call me "Old Master."
~ A old Maul meets Ezra Bridger in Malachor.
(Ahsoka: Maul, what game are you playing?) I am the enemy of your enemy now, and I have my own reasons for wanting the Empire to fall. But we have little time. The one they call Vader will be here soon. (Kanan: How do you know this?) His dogs will tell him where we are. Two Jedi and a "part timer." Oh, he will come. He will not be able to resist us. (Kanan: Okay, hold on, there is no "us." Dealing with Inquisitors is one thing, Vader is another. And I'm not convinced we're all on the same side anyway.) (Ezra: Kanan, we should trust him. Uh, look! He and I took this from the temple together! This is why we came here, right? To find out about the Sith. To find a way to beat them. Ahsoka, you said we came here for knowledge.) (Ahsoka: Ezra, there is no way a Jedi can unlock that holocron.) But you may unlock the Temple itself. (Ezra: How? Tell me how.) At the top of the temple is a chamber. Connect the holocron to the obelisk within and you can unlock the ancient knowledge of the Sith. (Ahsoka: Why are you working so hard to keep us here?) I cannot defeat Vader alone. (Ezra: I say we stay with him.) (Kana: Yeah? Well, I say we go, so that settles it.) Are you such cowards that you would run from this chance to defeat your enemies? Who slaughter your friends? Oh, how exciting. We're all on the same side.
~ Maul allies with Ahsoka, Kanan and Ezra against the Inquisitors, only to betray them later.
Look what has become of you. A rat in the desert. (Obi-Wan:Look what I have risen above.) I've come to kill you, but perhaps it's worse to leave you here, festering in your squalor. (Obi-Wan: If you define yourself by your power to take life, a desire to dominate, to possess, then you have nothing.) And what do you have?
~ Maul after finally finding his old enemy, Obi-Wan.
Why come to this place? Not simply to hide. Oh, you have a purpose here. Perhaps you are protecting something. No. Protecting someone.
~ Maul understand why Obi-Wan is hiding on Tatooine.
Tell me… is it the Chosen One? (Obi-Wan: He is.) He… will… avenge us.
~ A dying Maul learns the destiny of Luke Skywalker.

Duel of the Fates (Darth Maul's theme)

Trivia

  • Darth Maul's signature is his own red dual lightsaber which resembles a spear.
  • In The Phantom Menace, Darth Maul was portrayed by Ray Park, a martial arts specialist and voiced by Peter Serafinowicz. Many fans wanted to know more about Maul after the movie, mostly due to his lack of lines, resulting in expansion on his character in books and comics.
SithWitch

Maul's initial design by Ian McCaig.

  • Maul was designed by Iain McCaig, who designed him based on the concepts of his "worst nightmare", requested by George Lucas. One of his initial concepts featured a design where Maul was portrayed as a pale white figure covered in blood-red ribbons. The design was scrapped as Lucas felt it was too scary, though it was later used as a basis for the Nightsisters (specifically for Mother Talzin).
  • Maul is the main antagonist of the Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Playset in Disney Infinity 3.0.
  • It has been suggested that the Jedi never knew Maul's name, though there have been times in the Expanded Universe when the Jedi referred to him by name, these are considered errors.
  • Each villain who helped Palpatine in the Star Wars prequels foreshadows a different aspect of what happens in Anakin's future as Darth Vader. In Darth Maul's case, it's the apprentice who enforces Sidious' will and is the embodiment of pure anger and rage.
  • Maul's last words to Obi-Wan were a foreshadowing of Obi-Wan's death in A New Hope, the first film in the original Star Wars trilogy.
  • Maul appears in Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out with Sam Witwer even reprising his role from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This is non-canonical since the special is set after A New Hope and Maul died before A New Hope.
  • Maul is one of the few Star Wars characters who survived the prequel trilogy, excluding the characters who were in the original trilogy. (ie; Obi-Wan and Sidious)
  • His Lego figure, as well as his appearance in The Empire, Strikes Out and Lego Star Wars: Darth Maul's Mission, depicted his horns as black.
  • It is debated over Darth Maul and Palpatine which one is the main antagonist of The Phantom Menace. Some say it is Maul since he is a more prominent character and the one in charge during the film's climax. Others say it is Sidious because he made more appearances in the film than Maul. This is also debated with Stinky Pete and Al McWhiggin in Toy Story 2 and Ben Ravencroft and Sarah Ravencroft in Scooby-Doo! And The Witch's Ghost, two other movies released in 1999. Although Sidious did not fight the protagonists at the end, he played a more important role, and also controlled both Maul and the Trade Federation, ultimately making Sidious the main antagonist of the movie. However, Maul was still The Heavy as he was the one driving the plot.
  • Maul can be considered as the "evil counterpart" of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader:
    • Both were slaves as children but then were passed off to learn the ways of the Force.
    • Both were incredibly strong with the force at a young age, highlighted by Palpatine in Episodes I and III.
    • Both formed teacher-student/brotherly relationships with an older warrior (Savage Oppress for Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi for Anakin).
    • Both were bested by Obi-Wan Kenobi in battle by getting nearly killed and were restored to life with cybernetics.
    • Both were eventually cast aside by Palpatine in the favor of another potential apprentice (Maul for Dooku and Vader for Luke).
  • The Lipstick-Face Demon, the main antagonist of the 2010 horror film Insidious, is very similar to Darth Maul in his physical appearance. The reason for this is that Maul was the inspiration.
  • In the comics incarnations of Darth Maul, when he was once a boy, he had two little horns near his ears but in the film, he has more than two horns and they are placed differently.
  • In the film, Maul was somewhat silent, calm, and not very sadistic. But after his mind was restored by his mother, Maul was never the same again: He became very talkative, wanting at any price to take revenge, provocative, manipulative, and even more sadistic than Dooku himself. It is possible that the ten long years he spent on Lotho Minor had changed him forever despite his fully restored mind.
  • In "Twilight of the Apprentice" Maul was originally supposed to be killed by Darth Vader but that was ultimately changed so that Maul survived until he met with Obi-Wan on Tatooine where he finally met his death. This foreshadowed Maul's death in Star Wars Rebels.
  • Maul is the second Sith apprentice to die, the first being Count Dooku, and the third being Darth Vader.
    • Maul is also the second oldest Sith apprentice, only behind Dooku.
  • Ironically, while Maul in his last moments believed Luke Skywalker would destroy the Sith and avenge him, the one who would end up doing so was none other than one of his replacements as Darth Sidious' apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, the boy that Qui-Gon Jinn protected from him years ago.
  • In Angry Birds: Star Wars, he retains his personality from before, though his reveal shows him comically getting frustrated with his lightsaber. He can spin his lightsaber around him. Also, he is not cut in half like his original incarnation was. He is portrayed by a minion pig.
  • While Sam Witwer provided Maul's voice in the final cut of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Peter Serafinowicz was originally brought in and recorded his lines for the movie. His take on Maul was cut in favor of Witwer, however.
  • In The Rise of Skywalker, Darth Sidious said that all of the spirits of the dead Sith were part of him but as Darth Maul was thrown out as Sith and he rejects his title of Sith, his spirit probably never merged with his former master and was not wiped out when Sidious was finally killed by Rey.
  • Maul dying in Obi-Wan's arms at the end of "Twin Suns" serves as a parallel to the deaths of Qui-Gon Jinn and Satine Kryze who also died in his arms in a similar pose.
    • Ironically, both Jinn and Kryze were killed by Maul.
  • Ray Park, the actor that portrayed Maul in the movies, also provided the motion capture for the character in Season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This is most notably shown during Maul's battle with Ahsoka Tano.
  • The lightsaber that Maul uses in Solo A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: Rebels instead of his first lightsaber which he lost on Mandalore during his fight against Ahsoka Tano bears a striking resemblance to an Inquisitor lightsaber.
