    Now we all know kenobi gets his ass owned by Dooku everytime they fight (which is technically only twice). When Grievous says that line, is he stating it, or is it possible Grievous knows that Kenobi has been losing to Dooku?

    Yeah. He was aware of that. In the novel, there's a retort by Obi Wan.

    "Funny. I trained the man who killed him."

    It should also be noted that while Grievous trained under Count Dooku, his skills paled in comparison to Dooku's. Since Grievous lacked the kind of finesse which only comes through the Force, he had to rely on wildly hacking and slashing, attempting to overpower his opponents.

    His style was no match for Obi Wan's Jedi reflexes and defensive style.

    You have to admit that GG kicks ass though, I wish he didn't die. He could have had his own spin-off show!

    Yeah, I believe something like it was originally in the script before it got cut.

    Heck, I think that line was from the script itself but, yeah it was a threat as Grievous needed for his enemies to fear him and he foolishly thought that would scare Kenobi.

    It takes more than that to strike fear into the heart of the likes of General Kenobi, unfortunately for Grievous.

    Kicks ass? Well yeah in clone wars, but thats it. Hes a flippin chicken. He runs away like every time but the Clone wars. All he does is spin his lightsaber aimlessly expecting to hit someone.....

    Actually in the novel, he says "I've been trained in your Jedi arts by Darth Tyrannus."
    Obi-Wan replies, "You must mean Count Dooku. I trained the man that killed him."

    I think it was a little of. He was trying to get Kenobi to start to really think about what he was getting ready to do type thing. Make him second guess himself.

    Definately a threat. Just a Statement wouldn't make much sense. Since Dooku and Greivous were allies, I don't think Obi-Wan really needed any help putting two and two together.

    It was a threatening statement.
    So, yeah, both...

    Like if he'd shouted "Watch out, Kenobi, I've got four arms!"
    Fact/threat.

    I like Obi-Wan's reply. I wish that had been kept in - Very cool. :D

    As do I, it fits great with Obi-Wan's already established wit.

    I must confess it never occurred to me that Grievous may have known about Obi-Wan's prior bad track record with Dooku! It's quite funny to think that Grievous may have had this in mind when he made his threat. Grievous may be any number of things, but a swordsman on the level of Count Dooku he most certainly is not - four arms or not!

    Watch Clone Wars season 2 to see Dooku training Grievous personally. Forget what episode exactly, one of the early ones though.
