  • G-Canon is "George Lucas canon" - namely, the movies themselves and anything else Lucas decides is canon.
  • T-Canon is "Television canon" - The Clone Wars and its feature film, and supposedly Tartakovsky's Clone Wars microseries.
I believe the Tartakovsky series is C-canon. I do know that T-canon was a new term minted in relation to the CGI cartoon, due to George Lucas' involvement (and the series rewriting a number of canon issues from its first year on, usually at George's behest).

Re: Star Wars: How Did Yoda Know about the Rule of Two?

Perhaps the line shouldn't be taken too literally. After all Jedi can only have one Padawan. Perhaps Yoda was referring to this relationship rather than the Sith as a whole

That tier would make more sense, especially since TCW doesn't seem to be entirely compatible with the Tartakovsky series. Thanks for the correction.

Unfortunately, Darth Bane was known to get drunk and sing

We are better than you
We have a rule of two

And thus the legend spread through the galaxy
Shouldn't that line be:
Na-boo Na-boo boo boo ?
And the last line should be Stick your head in bantha poodoo.

how did Yoda know what the rule of two was, since it was instituted by Darth Bane
It seems worthy of note that Bane was inspired by Revan's holocron. In Revan and Malak's Sith, there may have been many "Sith" but there were only two Darths. After Revan's capture by the Jedi the two Darths were Malak and Bandon.

The obvious answer is that Yoda is secretly a Sith.

""The Jedi Order learned of the "Rule of Two" around 188 BBY during the Dark Jedi Conflict.""

I don't remember that at all! This was mentioned in the Plageuis novel?!

Because the Star Wars Movies and the Star Wars Expanded Universe aren't the same.

The movies supersede any books - i.e., the book is wrong.
What I do is ring George and ask him, if he says "what the fuck are you talking about?" I consider the matter to be non-canon.

Re: Star Wars: How Did Yoda Know about the Rule of Two?

To be honest though...Yoda does seem to be well versed in the Sith. Hell, he's even able to deal with force lightning directly.

Some have sugested that Yoda may have done what Luke does in the Dark Empire series...and that's take a stroll on over to the dark side in order to full understand his opponents.

Why is that a problem or an indicator of anything important? Yoda is a skilled force-user.

In the games, lightning is always a dark side power. Selecting it from the powers menu gives you Darkside points in the shooters and you can't take it at all unless you rape a sufficiently large number of puppies in the RPGs.

The only other person who uses it without being insanely pointlessly evil is Kyle Katarn and he doesn't count because he's a totally broken mary sue.

Look at the full list of Sources - some of the information may have come from different sources and was compiled into one for the Wookieepedia entry.
