DarthBane from the extended Star wars universe was the strongest sith lord
Debate Rounds (3)
My opponent's only points were that Bane could kill Jedi with the force. He also notes that Bane was very well-read, and experienced. This could also be a debate in where it turns into a nature vs nurture debate. I think that Darth Sidious is naturally in tune with the Dark Side, and Bane is more well-read. But, that does not matter.
Force Abilities. Note that Sidious was never betrayed by his former apprentices. Vader did betray him, but he died in the process. The Sith Code makes it clear that when the apprentice is ready, he should betray his master. Dooku, Maul, and Vader never dared to do this. Count Dooku has noted that Sidious was basically a dark side incarnate. He was a living incarnation of the dark side. Darth Vader never tried to kill Sidious in canon sources, because Sidious would overwhelm him. Sidious was very experienced in force lightning. In fact, he forgot about his lightsaber just because he was confident in his force abilities. Sidious was able to force choke 2 mandolorians at a time. In Revenge of the Sith, he is seen throwing pods at Yoda. His force abilities were that strong in a duel. He was experienced at electrocuting people when they had not lightsaber. Now, in order for Sidious to get Bane without a lightsaber, he would need to find a way to outmaneuver him.
Lightsaber Skills: Sidious was an extremely fast duelist. He was able to top Darth Maul and Savage Opress in a duel. Darth Sidious defeated both extremely skilled duelists in a matter of minutes. He even beat Darth Maul in a matter of seconds. Darth Maul was also at the peak of his rage in this duel. Sidious was still able to defeat him, and then electrocute him till he was unconscious. Sidious was also able to top Yoda. The Master of the Jedi Order. SIdious and him engaged in a duel though eventually led into a force battle. Sidious also was confronted by 3-4 Jedi Masters. One of the Jedi masters had defeated General Grievious. That master was stabbed slowly by Sidious. Sidious killed the other two masters in seconds, and engaged in a long duel with Windu. Bane would eventually be over-powered by Sidious's fast and unpredictable swings.
Bane's killing of Jedi: Those Jedi that Bane killed with the force were probably horrible Jedi. They must have not had a good force shield. We are talking about sith lords. Darth Sidious can not force choke Bane, and Bane can not force choke Darth Sidious.
With all of that evidence, I can safely say that it is fact that Darth Sidious was the stronger Sith Lord.
Darth Sidious's IQ was probably 50 points higher than Bane's.
