Daryl Franklin, Jr. : Ironic. He can save others from death, but not himself.

JustCallMeSix _ : Roses are red, Rodians are green, Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Pride fallen : I always wondered why he did that before learning it thanks Lore Master

William Smeds : *_have you ever heard the tradgedy of darth plagueis,the wise?_*

CaptainDaz : He did it because he wanted to be the Senate.

Bad Games : He did it only because he knew if he didn’t he couldn’t tell anakin the ummm, story

Robert the Dude : Let's introduce a new meme to this comment section *THE SACRED TEXTS*

Nooby Chris : I mean it makes a good story to tell Anakin

DetexG : *UNLIMITED... POWER!!!* 1:34

ImStayGold42 : Snoke should've been Plagieus, they blew it.

Alexandra Ungureanu : Hi fact free I want to thank you.Why?Because you ignited the fire of being a Star Wars fan ever since the stormtroopers classes video. Keep up the good work!

RANDY TYSON : Such a Important figure in canon and lore, shame we don't know much of the guy. I guess that's what happened when your apprentice succeeds you

Deion Mitchell : Palpatine, along with Vader, are my all-time favorite Sith Lords. Sheev is the personification of the dark side and evil itself. Please, Lore Master, do a video on the Force powers Sidious had both in Legends and canon!

Ivan Cerecer : I remember in the Darth Plagueis novel, when Palpatine was shocking him, Plagueis woke up and took it like a champ as a way to test his "foolish power of immortality" as Palpatine said, but him waking up like that made me wonder if somehow he suceeded and is merely hiding out there (and no i dont think Snoke is Plagueis)

johny coho : Ironically I was told the Tragedy of Darth Plagueus the Wise by a Jedi.

Spartacus547 : It's possible that science will have it by 2029 I guess we're better than the Jedi and Sith 😂

GogoPowerJuice : No more communist propaganda? awww

Andrew Jackson : Sith have grown weaker and weaker due to the fact they only share what they want with there pupils so when the master inevitable is killed by the pupil who is by then secretly a master with a pupil himself then the knowledge is lost, also the rule of two is a con I believe they all had multiple pupils who didn't have a clue about one another so maybe they share what they want with who they want!!!!????? Just my thoughts and observation of the sith over 25+ years lol.

Darth Plagu3s : The tragedy of darth plageius the wise.

I AM EVERYWHERE YOU PATHETIC MORTAL : *But plagueis isn't dead...*

deejayxcrypt : Because of a voice in his head: ”Dew it!!”

Star Commander : Honestly, Plagueis is my favorite character behind Vader.

Nedim Gezici : Hey can you make a video about how lightsabers works

aster4jaden : I really liked Plagueis, I wish we could of had more of him.

Beezy's Battlegrounds : yeah i think he kinda killed him before, because after plagueis would've discovered it plagueis would be immortal...

SombraMain Haapi313 : I was just watching your Videos!!!

FromHyrule : Do an Imperial Knights video.

Star Wars Cantina : Sick video bro!!

J Warez : This explained a lot thank you

Alvaro Hernani : Because he really wanted to tell us "The tragedy of Darth Plaeguis thebwise"

Vae Victis : That's why I don't like Palpatine for this reason he killed him before he could be taught everything.

Torik Jast : Great video! I have always wondered as to why Palpatine made the crucial mistake of not learning the secret of achieving immortality.

ralfigs : I also believe Sidious felt he could discover immortality without Plagues.

Armin Tabari : Did you see the latest of vader comics?plaguies diffinity is shaking in his grave !i can't wait to see palpatine reaction when he learns of darth momin ressurection!

Frederico Eusébio : That is the thing with the dark side ... the lust for power is so great they forget all the rest

Shining Armour : Palpatine would have still gone with his first choice. One life-time of being the master? Or an eternity of being the puppet?

ken hood : He knew a wise master never teaches the apprentice everything anyways.

Gamerafighter76 : Well, that took a lot of guts on Palpatine's part to give up immortality just to avoid being a figurehead forever in the shadow of his master.

Corvus : What if Snoke is Plagus resurrected!?

Safa Abedian : As well as the points explained in this video, it's also made clear in the Plagueis novel that Plagueis and Palpatine both had differing opinions on how eternal life could be achieved. Following in his master's footsteps Plagueis believed a combination of science and studying the dark side academically was the key to immortality, whilst Palpatine strongly believed in rituals and ancient teachings, purely of the force and completely arcane. I think for this reason, Palpatine dismissed his master's teachings so didn't care about that when killing him. Plagueis was actually probably correct out of the two as we know he did ressurect beings and his master was able to live eternally (although in a completely different form)

ryan jiang : Lore master do more Rebels videos please

XxCAPT NINJAxX : Darth plagueis was dark lord of the sith so powerful and so wise.

Sunrise Alex : i think that Plauegis might appear in episode lX

Michael Kaduck : "The Power of the Dark Side, Sidious, is a disease no Sith should ever be cured of."-Darth Plagueis

Jax Hughes : I enjoyed this video

Saeid Radder : Who needs immortality when you have unlimited power! It's basically the same thing

Alegost1 : don´t know how a comment like that will be taken but: the moment you realise that palpatine is liek sauron from lord of the rings.... an endboss like evil that is actually the underling of someone way more powerful

I have no other name : Why I watched lore master in school

sleepy gary : Legends is way better than this new cannon also i used to have this Darth plageuis book. I never finished it i needed 50 more pages.
