Deleted sceneEdit

I had a bit of a question concerning that could open up another proverbial can of worms. Darth Bane (along with Darth Revan) were slated to appear in Ghosts of Mortis. Does that need to be mentioned on the canon page or stay in Legends? I'm gonna put it in appearances and if anybody wants to take it off, there's nobody stopping you. Have a dark-side filled say! --You may call me Mr. Darth (talk) 00:08, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

  • I think the best option would be to reference in the behind the scenes section. The scene was never completed, and removed before it could be fully animated, so I wouldn't even consider it a deleted scene. More like an idea that was scuttled before it got too far. Plenty of information for a BtS section, but not enough to justify a list in Appearances IMO. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:10, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

7.1 New message Edit

Their is only one actual mistake in the article as far as I can tell, the article claims that Dart Bane was defeated by the Jedi when in actual fact it was during his battle with his apprentice Dart Zannah on Ambria at Caleb's camp. He tried to envoke the essence transfer ritual he had taken from Darth Andeddu's holocron but failed as Zannah's will was too strong. The article also doesn't really mention any of Bane's backstory or general achievements that are told in the books by Drew Karphasyn which is where I sourced the above information. I'm relatively knew to Wookieepedia so I didn't want to go changing anything. Let me know if you think I should or if I can give any information to someone else (Darraghd93 (talk) 22:35, December 29, 2015 (UTC))

  • This is the canon version of the article. The events you're referring to are Legends and can be found at Darth Bane/Legends. The Canon/Legends banner at the top of the page can be used to switch between the two different versions. Cwedin(talk) 22:46, December 29, 2015 (UTC)

Bane's Saberpike Edit

Can we talk about Bane's lightsaber as it appears in the concept art? I think it was a mistake not to feature it in the episode, but it would've been difficult to implement. The canonical version is a dark orange(light red) saberpike. The implecations this has toward the old republic could be immense. Bane's saberpike and the Darksaber are the only examples of lightsaber technology from 1000 years before Episode I. Both are designed to be much more blade-like as the lazerswords from gundam or other media. The implecations this has on the evolution of lightsaber technology is in my mind incredible. When the EU was decanonized I was extremely pleased. The Legends version of post-RotJ events was awful. It was like Trek fans tried to take over but the way events pre-Bane have been depicted has been very well through games and books and i believe this is why Disney hasn't made much of that material irrelevent yet. The only things that have been touched is Bane's appearence (which is phenominal compared with the legends version) and possibly now the appearence of any saber from the ancient past.

Armor resembles Darth Vader's? Edit

See the similarities of Bane and Vader's armor? Maybe Vader's was based off Banes. 13:54, April 6, 2016 (UTC)

Defeated by the Jedi? Edit

So, I went to check one of the references for the Biography text. I may be blind, but where exactly does the Databank state that Bane was defeated by the Jedi? The text of Bane's article is only:

"An ancient and legendary Sith Lord, it was Darth Bane who saw that the Sith traditions of old were ultimately a dead end. All too often, squabbling Sith in their bid for power upended carefully laid plans. After the Sith were decimated by the Jedi Knights of a thousand years ago, Bane enacted the Sith rule of two: there would be only two active Sith at one time -- a Dark Lord to embody the power, and an apprentice to crave it. These Sith would operate in the shadows, favoring guile and conspiracy to bring down their opponents rather than brute force -- that is, until it was time to rise and subjugate the galaxy."

I don't see anything mentioning that he was defeated by a Jedi. - DarthImperius (talk) 22:42, June 9, 2017 (UTC)

  • It was originally sourced to the old databank, however that version is no longer showing up so someone has changed it to the newer databank, but if its not in that version then it needs to be sourced elsewhere --Lewisr (talk) 22:55, June 9, 2017 (UTC)
    • So what's the procedure when previous information is overwritten by new info and bits are missing, such as the "defeated by the Jedi" thing, and no new source is found? - DarthImperius (talk) 23:03, June 9, 2017 (UTC)
      • Turns out one "Staszhel" thought it would be a good idea to indiscriminately change all citiations to Bane's Encyclopedia entry to the current Databank, even though some stuff could only be found there. I've gone about restoring the correct references. - Imperial Information Office AV-6R7Crew Pit 23:11, June 9, 2017 (UTC)
        • Thanks AV. Yes, that information should be sourced to the Encyclopedia. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 07:12, June 10, 2017 (UTC)
