I don't think that Dark Maul can be considered as the Bigger Bad of the Clone Wars. Following the Big Bad article, a Bigger Bad is more powerful and/or influential than the Big Bad, and Maul is Dooku's equal at best, and does not have any authority (yet) over the Separatists. To me, the Bigger Bad is Palpatine. Balthus Dire 19:08, December 14, 2011 (UTC)
He really acts like the main antagonist of Episode 1, but due to him being a henchman in Episode 1, he would be considered the secondary antagonist of Episode 1, which I seem to understand now.
Secondary or central antagonist
Is Darth Maul the secondary antagonist or central antagonist of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace? To the heroes Maul was the main threat, even though it was really Palpatine, as he was taking orders from him in that Episode. Zookeeper567 (talk) 10:34, July 25, 2019 (UTC)
