"I can't see ever using such a Mark"
―Obi-Wan Kenobi regarding the mou kei Mark of Contact.[src]
Mou kei

Obi-Wan Kenobi's mou kei application against Darth Vader.

The mou kei was a devastating finishing move in lightsaber combat involving the cutting off of several limbs at once.[1] It became a rare move to use.

MethodologyEdit

Mou kei literally meant "to dismember."[1] This was accomplished through the use of a series of circular motions with the lightsaber aimed at the major limbs. The attack was a Sith favorite, as it completely destroyed the opponent, both figuratively and literally. Using this move with the goal of dismembering an opponent could have been viewed as little more than all-out butchery. Its usage by Jedi was forbidden given the many alternative Marks of Contact.[1]

Example(s)Edit

A mou kei strike was used by Obi-Wan Kenobi against Darth Vader during their showdown on Mustafar, removing his left arm and both his legs and ending their duel.
