Sith Disposal Chute

This is the round tunnel in the ground that leads to a reactor, which is where you have to throw Sith Lords in order to kill them.

Darth Maul met his end in one on Naboo, and the Emperor, due to supreme overconfidence, actually had one installed in his private chambers on the second Death Star, presumably as a big “screw you” to the last Jedi, basically saying “I am so awesome that even with a Sith Disposal Chute right here in my room, I can’t be defeated.” Although considering he masterminded one of the most convoluted conquest plans ever under the very nose of the Jedi order, succeeded completely, and has been ruling the galaxy for 20 years, and managed to kill Samuel L. Jackson, if anyone had the right to be overconfident, it’s him.

Anyway, in Episode II there is no Sith Disposal Chute and so naturally Dooku cannot be defeated by the Jedi.

Ah, but how about Episode III? I submit that Dooku’s death was brought about by Palpatine; he told Dooku to take it easy on Skywalker, as they were to turn him to the dark side. And he’s the one that commanded his death. (Dooku did deserve it for being dumb enough not to know the 2 Sith Rule.)

So, a Sith can kill another Sith without resorting to the Chute, but so far the only Jedi vs. Sith battles to end with the Jedi on top have needed a Chute.

Obi-Wan vs. Whinikin on Mustafar? Didn’t die.
Yoda vs. Palpatine on Coruscant? No chute, Palpy wins.
