Death suggested by Forfit The Game
Having kidnapped the Chancellor, and preparing to make good his escape, Dooku cold be forgiven for thinking that the clone wars had turned in his favour. However, there was one little fly in his ointment…..
Hot on his heels are two Jedi knights; Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi. Having been assigned the mission to rescue the Chancellor from General Grievous, they have negotiated their way through the intense space battle and ended up in the hanger of Grievous's flagship, The White Hand. Our two heroes then fight valiantly through tons of droids that tried to stop them (X-box users will recognize this scene as level 3 in the “Revenge of the Sith” computer game), the two Jedi at last make it to the lone spire where the Chancellor is being held prisoner. The moment they walked in to the room however they are ambushed by Count Dooku, and the three of them draw their light sabres and prepare to duel.
Early in this fight, Obi Wan is knocked unconscious and so Anakin must face Dooku alone. Anakin fights bravely and fearlessly, but Dooku still thinks he has the upper hand, that is until Anakin slices off both of the lower half of Dooku’s arms. The shock of this sends Dooku falling to his knees in agony. Without hesitation, Anakin then grabs Dooku’s light sabre as it falls, and puts both his and Dooku’s light sabre in an X formation around Dooku’s neck. Palpatine, who has been watching the duel with interest congratulates Anakin for defeating Dooku, and then orders him to kill the dissident.
Dooku kneeling there helplessly with a pleading look on his face suddenly realises that his master has betrayed him. Before he can think any further though, Anakin, struggling to control his emotions, and letting his hate take over, slices Dooku’s head off in cold blood.
