Who can fill Snoke’s identity gap?
Who is the only Jedi, in history, to beat Palpatine and Jango Fett? Windu even without the high ground two times.
Who was one of the only Jedi to have a purple Lightsaber? Windu.
What lightsaber color is a balance between the light and dark sides of the force? Purple.
Who also happens to be obsessed with balance? Snoke.
And here’s the crazy part: big figures like Samuel Jackson and George Lucas believe in parts of this theory.
Is Mace Windu Snoke?
Some of you reading this think Windu’s dead. Sorry to burst your bubble, but Mace Windu’s alive and kicking.
After Windu was betrayed, he decided to quit the Jedi order and joined the Avengers initiative full-time.
I’m kidding ?
But seriously, did Mace really die? Let’s rewatch his ‘supposed’ death and break it down.
We also have some real evidence from both the actor himself…
…and George Lucas agreeing Windu could’ve survived.
I know what you’re thinking.
Let me explain.
Although Windu got his arm cut off, electrocuted and thrown off the top of a very high skyscraper, we’ve all seen Jedi survive his ‘fatal’ injuries.
Lots of arms/hands were cut off.
Anakin, Luke, Darth Vader (what’s up with that?) and even Darth Maul all suffered ‘life-threatening’ wounds — but they all survived.
Yoda and Luke were hit with lightning. They survived.
Dooku hit Anakin with lightning. Anakin survived.
Palpatine’s full force lightning was deflected onto himself and guess what? Palpatine survived.
Also, after Windu is thrown out of the window, he makes a final grunting sound, indicating he’s alive.
No Jedi has died from a fall. Ever.
For example, Anakin fell from hundreds of stories in the same city of Coruscant without a scratch.
A Jedi master, without an exception, could land safely.
To sum it up
There’s no reason why Mace can’t be alive.
Come on, Darth Maul SURVIVED after being cut in half. If Maul could survive such a ‘maul’ (get it? ?), Windu could, too.
Now, with Mace’s ‘death’ out of the way, we can now touch on Snoke’s possible identity match.
Mace and Snoke’s Similarities
I agree, Mace Windu and Snoke look awfully different.
One’s really old, ghostly white, scarred, and just straight up butt ugly (no offense) while the other is just sexy Ol’ Samuel Jackson.
Despite the stark differences, they do have a lot in common:
Snoke supposedly witnessed the rise and fall of the Galatic Empire, as mentioned in the official Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens book.
But do you know who else witnessed the rise and fall as well? Windu — making them both the exact, same age.
When Palpatine’s Force Lightning reflected off Windu’s blade, it disfigured Palpatine’s face.
The same thing happened to Windu’s face, giving him a ‘Snoke-like’ appearance.
They’re both…bald. Not convincing evidence, but hey, it’s there.
Snoke manipulates Ben Solo.
Ben then turns to the dark side and destroys everything Luke built: his school, knowledge, Han Solo, and nearly eradicates the entire Jedi with the Knights of Ren.
Why was Snoke so obsessed with Luke Skywalker in the first place?
If you remember, who was against training Anakin Skywalker from the beginning? Windu.
Who didn’t grant Anakin Skywalker master in the Jedi Council? Windu.
Who happened to ‘betray’ Windu by cutting off his hand? Oh yeah, a Skywalker.
That’s why he’s so obsessed with finding Luke: he wants to put an end to the Skywalker bloodline as revenge.
How do we know? Look at…
Kylo’s Fighting Form
That spin Kylo Ren just used is a very special — and secret — fighting form called Vaapad.
It was considered the most aggressive lightsaber form and drew from the Dark Side of the Force. Very, very few ever mastered it.
Can you guess who’s one of the rare few? Windu.
Who else could’ve taught Kylo such a rare fighting form other than the master himself?
That’s not all.
Windu’s Force Ability
Mace Windu achieved a unique force ability that no Jedi master in history ever accomplished: Shatter Point or being able to sense people’s weaknesses.
Windu is the only Jedi in history to defeat both Darth Sidious and Jango Fett.
Someone else seems to use this ability: Snoke.
In my previous Snoke Faked His Death Post, we found out Snoke specializes in finding weaknesses and exploiting them to defeat his opponents — almost like Windu’s Shatter Point ability.
How do we know?
In the official Last Jedi novel, the biggest surprise, to even imperial leadership, was Snoke’s rapid rise to power and how nobody predicted it.
Kind of like Donald Trump ?
Alright, I’m KIDDING. But seriously, if Windu survived and he somehow transformed into Snoke…
Where Was Windu Hiding This Entire Time?
After Windu supposedly ‘died’, Emperor Palpatine fabricated an elaborate cover story to explain the sudden genocide of all Jedi.
Palpatine framed Windu as a rebel who attempted to overthrow the Republic by assassinating the legitimate government. He then spread the lie throughout the galaxy and initiated a galaxy-wide Jedi Purge.
The result? The near eradication of the Jedi Order.
However, few did survive the onslaught, mostly Jedi masters like Yoda and Obi-Wan.
Could Windu have survived and escaped to the Unknown Regions of the galaxy, transforming into the Snoke we know today?
…and if it’s true, Windu could possibly fill a HUGE gap about Snoke’s identity, putting a rest to almost ALL Snoke theories.
Although this theory is very, very promising and exciting, it does have a few issues that need to be addressed.
Snoke and Mace Windu’s Appearance Differences
Here’s an undeniable fact: Snoke and Windu look and sound completely…different.
Let’s start with his most obvious difference: Mace Windu’s skin is dark-skinned (no racism intended) while Snoke’s skin is pale white.
Can Force Lighting pull a Michael Jackson?
Windu lost his right arm while Snoke has both arms intact and even uses force lightning, in what seems, to be his right arm.
Maybe he found a workaround? Arm Transplants? Transfer Essence? Who knows.
Do growth spurts happen after shifting sides in Star Wars? Or did Snoke manipulate his appearance like through Force Projection, as Luke did with his age?
Mace Windu’s eyes are brown while Snoke’s eyes are a cold blue.
That’s a…pretty big difference. Also, Snoke doesn’t sound or act like Mace Windu.
But again, Force Projection or Transfer Essence paired with years of hiding could explain the difference. Who knows.
So, Is Snoke Mace Windu?
What do you guys think? Do you think Snoke is Mace Windu? Or do you think Snoke’s someone else?
