Why did Yoda using a lightsaber trigger so many millennials?

Dude's a Jedi master. Why shouldn't he be skilled with their signature weapon?

Not to mention he teaches deadly combat to padawans. Also not pacifist to teach others to kill.

      Yoda WAS that strong. He could punk most enemies with ease. Ventress tried to threaten Yoda with her lightsabers, but he laughed at her (pic related).

        is he just playing nice because she's not a sith lord? like he knows that she hasn't gone to far and has the possibility of turning away from the dark side?

          Perhaps it was the force telling him that she still had a role to play.

          Or Maybe he knew that even if he took the lightsabers it would not matter. She would get new ones immediately.

          Dooku after all called lightsabers as nothing but trinkets and tools. He implied they could be easily replaced.

        In A New Hope it comes across as more of a demonstration what the force allows you to do, not really what the light saber was originally designed to do. And when Luke walks around in enemy territory, he has his blaster out, not his light saber.

            Again, the force was portrayed in the OT as a powerful kind of magic, that transcended what you would be capable of doing with mere weapons. You would expect somebody as powerful as Yoda to be capable of doing things more in line with what Palpatine was doing, like shooting lightning out of your hands, without the need of relying on any other weapon.

              The force is integral to the way jedi use lightsabers, not something that's an alternative to fighting with lightsabers. That's why Luke trains with a visor over his eyes.

          The most powerful jedi probably could but a lightsaber is a pretty useful tool. Any weapon can be used for attack but the vast majority of jedi would never fight a sith or even a dark side user of any type in their entire lives. Usually if things escalated anywhere they'd be deflecting blaster bolts.

              Because you aren't capable. In the movies we only see Vader being able to block a blaster with his hand, and only Yoda being able to block lightning with his hand.

                This is not something that was established in the OT, that was something introduced in the prequels. In the OT all that was shown was that the force allowed you to defend yourself from the blasters, be it with a saber, a hand, or perhaps something else entirely. And we are talking about prequels being moronic, so using concepts introduced by them, like the necessity of using sabers to protect yourself from blasters, to defend the validity of those same concepts is circular, which is even more moronic.

                That scene was to show you what the force was enabling you to do, not something that read as a demonstration of the way that the saber was traditionally used, which is something that is indicated by what Han Solo says about the saber being phased out in favor of blasters, which would imply that light sabers weren't something that was predominantly used in combat at the same time as the blasters. Ben could have given Luke an electric tennis racket to train with in that scene and it would have the same impact on the story of that movie.

    They can't accept that prequel Yoda is a different character than the one in the OT, and that the experience of losing everything he worked for, all his friends and all his power irrevocably changed him to the small gremlin we see in ep 5.

    So called "true fans" wanted the character to remain static and do the same thing he always did. To them, it was a betrayal to see a rash, violent and unsure/frustrated yoda, even though this was core characterization of his PT portrayal.

    Because the whole point of Yoda is that you expected him to be some kind of big badass teacher

    Instead he's an old little guy, he's there to demonstrate that the Force isn't about your physical strength or qualities it's a spiritual thing that transcends the body

    With Yoda hopping around using a lightsaber like an acrobat that defeats the point, it's like showing a past version of Yoda who was a 6 foot tall muscular Chad. It overrides his own introduction and what he tries to teach Luke

      They don't understand that Yoda in Empire is a dude who's learned from his mistakes and given up on being a warrior as that line of thinking led to the downfall of the Jedi.
      >Wars not make one great!

      This, Yoda learned from experience. When you watch the series chronologically it is a sensible evolution of his character.

      See:

      They can't accept that prequel Yoda is a different character than the one in the OT, and that the experience of losing everything he worked for, all his friends and all his power irrevocably changed him to the small gremlin we see in ep 5.

      So called "true fans" wanted the character to remain static and do the same thing he always did. To them, it was a betrayal to see a rash, violent and unsure/frustrated yoda, even though this was core characterization of his PT portrayal.

      Hence, they didn't grasp some very basic shit about the movies

    I figured there were different classes of Jedi, with Knights being the one obsessive over swordfighting while someone like Yoda would be a wizard who didn't care about using a sword.

    I was also upset at Palpatine using a saber 'cuz in RotJ he laughs and mocks sabers while looking at Luke's, and then later on he defeats luke just by shooting lightning out of his hands so clearly he doesn't need a sword.

              Bane's goal with Sith was not for it to be the permanent Sith methodology, but rather their transitory state where the rule was needed to grow Sith strong enough to destroy the Jedi and should the Banite succeed or be destroyed, the Sith Order would follow suit. The Victor would then shape the Sith Order in their image
              The insane backstabbing happened mostly towards the end of Republic as those Sith Lords believed themselves to be the stopping point for the rule, not another step in it.

                The insane backstabbing happened long before then, it toppled several Sith empires and cost them ultimate victory on numerous occasions.

    The entire point of Yoda as character was to let Luke - and the audience know - that the Force is something beyond the physical.

    Luke expected Yoda to be some hulking great warrior, but instead Yoda is a dumpy, crippled little goblin. Yet is still one of the powerful beings in the galaxy.

    It's paradox which shows that person's affinity with the Force has no relation to their actual physicality.

    Having Yoda jump around with a lightsabre is moronic because it ties his power back to his physicality. Both Yoda and the Emperor should be beyond that.
