    Get his legs cut off for the sake of the plot.

    He acted without thinking, a recurring character trait that contrasts his behavior at the end of RotJ, where he deliberated for a while before finally deciding to save Luke.

    He had probably heard Obi Wan talking shit about that badass move he used to take out Darth Maul and thought he do the same.

        Because Obi-wan was attempting such an insanely retarded move that even a youngling wouldn’t attempt. It took Maul a few seconds to even process how someone could be so retarded.

          nice try,prequelfag. Having Maul not reacting at all was pretty dumb. This whole childish franchise is very very stupid

          an insanely retarded move would be wild reckless swing after a conservative, controlled attack or switching hands and throwing or whatever the fuck. a random backflip over a trained swordsman with a laser blade is just suicidal. there is honestly no way someone like maul couldnt have reacted in that amount of time

        Maul requires a minimum of 10 seconds to activate his sabers for dramatic effect

      This. Although it would have made much more sense if there was a scene with Obi-Wan talking about it. Obi-wan saying “don’t try it” implies that they both know exactly what move he is going to attempt, but we as the audience have no point of reference. In other words, George Lucas is a hack.

    He’s arrogant, blinded by rage and thinks he’s more powerful than obi wan and wants to prove it to him, so he tries off some extremely risky move. Ends up failing and getting his legs chopped off.

      To be fair he was more powerful than Obi Wan. He was more powerful than anyone, it’s just like you said, he was arrogant and blinded by rage. He did something stupid and paid for it.

    Does anyone else think Obi wan was a psychotic asshole in this scene? The least he could've done was pull Anakin away from the lava after he maimed him but no he gets his sick kicks from watching someone he supposedly loves getting BBQ'd then turning his back on him as he's screaming too. What a sick fuck

      Yeah, you’d think he’d at least mercy kill him to stop his pain.

      Yes. Obi knew everything, that Anakin was confused, blind w rage, manipulated, young & impressionable, his mom, Padme, everything, yet let him burn. Anakin was even reaching for him to help after the fight was over.

      I'd be pissed too & wanna kill them all. No one even bothered to try & talk to him before, not in any meaningful way. Palpatine was the only one.

      blame Lucas for rushing the turning evil from Anakin that much. He coldly kills children just cause Palpatine told so and doesn't even struggle with it. Also he was supposed to be over 40 upon becoming Vader,not on his 20's

        He has already killed the sand children so it wasn't that much of a jump to human ones

          Plus, he literally thought this was the only way to save Padme. Of the Jedi weren't such monk like weirdos, maybe someone should've talked him through all this. Dumb fucks deserved to be holocausted.

      yeah it was poorly written. lucas needed le epic fight scene between them, needed obi wan to then win and give a speech, but also needed anakin to survive. this was the best thing he could think of. prequels were 90% pure shit. script read like it was written by a 17 year old. cool fight scenes tho

      He was prepared to kill him the moment he ignited his lightsaber. At the point he chopped his legs off he assumed he would shortly be burned to death from the lava flowing over him. Mercy kill, sure maybe, but it was probably pretty dangerous to get that close.
