Why Darth maul. Yeah he looks cool but he's kinda just an authoritarian cultist with incredibly unchecked toxic masculinity. Tho he does look really really cool n badass.
I wish I'm not even 5% as impressive or queer as bon clay. I'm way more cowardly, less loyal and not even that queer looking irl. But I do aspire to be that cool hahaha.

So all I know of Darth Maul is from the movie, I never saw the cartoons so maybe thats the toxic masculinity/cultist bit? I don't remember anything toxic masculinity like in the movie anyway.
Basically what I remember is epic flips, epic soundtrack, epic horns, and epic lightsaber plus there is something about a villain that chooses not to talk somehow his silence makes him scarier which kind of appeals to me (I am very quiet around people I don't know well and everyone just assumes its because I am annoyed by them(that usually isn't the case I am just quiet until i know to what degree to trust you)).

Oh I guess u don't get the toxic masculinity cultist bit if ur not a star wars nerd. Like the dark side is basically a religion where you master encourages you to just be as angry and violent as possible to everyone and everything. Hence Darth maul being toxicly masculine and cultist. You wouldn't get that by watching him it's just something u get by spending literal hundreds of hours studying star wars lore as a kid and even an adult lol
He's actually decently cool in the TV show. But I was just talking movie
