Given that both episodes are based on legendary warriors with exceptional combat skills, it’s no wonder that The Mandalorian and The Book Of Boba Fett include some awesome battle sequences. While the latter contains considerably less well-executed battle sequences, it still has its share of fantastic duels, owing primarily to the characters’ badassery, whilst the former is just jam-packed with incredible action.
These aren’t large-scale blaster wars, but rather one-on-one or one-on-a-group engagements. Both series contain a few endlessly fascinating Star Wars battles, whether it’s because of the personalities involved or because of the awesomely orchestrated action.
5. Stormtroopers Vs. Armorer
The Armorer always makes the most of her screen time, and she is notable in all of her appearances in The Mandalorian and The Book Of Boba Fett. Her brutal annihilation of a bunch of stormtroopers is undeniably her greatest moment.
When troops seeking for Mando and company come upon the Armorer, she uses her armoury tools to demonstrate her remarkable combat talents for the first time. The way she stays immobile before releasing herself on the astonished troops is nothing short of incredible.
4. Boba Fett Vs. Stormtroopers
Many fans, even those who did not believe the narrative deserved to be revealed, were thrilled for The Book Of Boba Fett since he was so good in his appearances in The Mandalorian, particularly in ‘Chapter 14: The Tragedy.’
Din is apprehended by the two and joined by Boba and Fennec just as Grogu is apprehended and Imperial soldiers of Gideon advance on Din’s position. The three engage in a great combat with the stormtroopers. The actual thrill, though, is witnessing Boba smash troops on his own, especially after resuming his legendary suit.
3. Morgan Elsbeth Vs. Ahsoka Tano
Star Wars has always had a strong samurai influence, and both The Mandalorian and The Book Of Boba Fett are rife with them. But there has never been a more significant tribute to the genre than “Chapter 13: The Jedi.”
These samurai elements, expertly handled by Dave Filoni, are a big part of why this battle is so good. Even if that wasn’t the case, Ahsoka Tano’s first genuine battle in live-action was always going to be awe-inspiring for those who have followed her development. The fact that she was battling for the benefit of the inhabitants of the town and the capture of Thrawn made it all the more satisfying.
2. Moff Gideon Vs. Dindjarin
Every time the Darksaber appears in The Clone Wars, Rebels, The Mandalorian, or The Book Of Boba Fett, the resulting battle is epic. This is, without a doubt, the best of the group.
It’s amazing to see Din battle Gideon with his beskar staff. It’s well choreographed, with a lovely finish. Din is one of the finest Star Wars characters, and while Gideon isn’t the coolest Star Wars villain ever, he’s nonetheless remarkable, especially in the season finales. This is one of the finest non-Force users vs non-Force users lightsaber/sword/melee weapon duels in the franchise.
1. Luke Skywalker Vs. The Dark Troopers
When The Mandalorian brought Luke Skywalker to the screen in the season 2 finale, it offered fans one of the finest moments in Star Wars history. It shows him annihilating Dark Troopers as he approaches Grogu, and it is fantastic.
Fans’ jaws are on the floor from the minute the hooded guy emerges on Gideon’s ship. Fans of Luke, The Mandalorian, and Star Wars will never forget seeing the famous green sabre blast through the droids. It’s one of the most incredible things to ever happen on Star Wars TV.
