“It’s over Anakin, I have the high ground!”
- Obi-Wan Kenobi 19BBY
The high ground is often misconceived as being simply the ground on which one stands is at a higher elevation than that of the opponents. This common misconception fails to accurately portray the true power the high ground give to its practitioner. The high ground offers god-like abilities making the user next-to-if-not-immortal. Any opponent going against one with the high ground should be very wary and might be wise to yield. One unknown aspect to actually have the high ground is you must not only possess a higher elevation than the opponent, but you must claim the high ground. If you don’t claim the high ground you don’t have the high ground.
The high ground was best portrayed in 19BBY when Darth Vader fueled against and lost to his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, on the volcanic planet Mustafar. And was best portrayed as not being used to its full potential during the Battle of Naboo and Darth Maul defeated Qui-Gon Jinn and knocked Obi-Wan onto a ledge. Maul failed to claim the high ground and was ultimately defeated as he did not use the high ground to its full potential.
