    It was pretty stupid he shot Vebb, he should have been able to beat him just with sabres, then shoot a Master or something.

    Overall TCW didn't handle GG well enough.

    Maul, Ventress and a few more were portrayed much better, but they are not the major villains, especially Maul, since it's the CLONE WARS. Republic VS CIS, as the commander of CIS he should be dreadful and threatening to match the Jedi masters.

    I don't like how on TCW he lets his droids do most of the fighting against groups of enemies (eg Arc Troopers and A Necessary Bond) , if TCW team had made their own version of the Grievous kidnapping the Chancellor story we saw in the micro series, they would probably change it to a load of droids storming into Paplpatines office and killing most if not all of the clones unlike in the micro series where Grievous owned loads of clone and liked getting his hands dirty. I also don't like how he has never won most of his Jedi fights without cheating on TCW, just because he's a coward doesn't mean that he couldn't have been a lot more successful.

    I don't see why he's called a coward, myself. He willingly hurls himself head first into danger time and time again, locking blades with countless Jedi, from Vebb to Fisto to Gallia to Kenobi over the course of the series. He doesn't cringe in fear at the first sign of trouble. He's called a coward in his StarWars.com profile because he only takes on fights "where he believes he can win". But that's not cowardice - that's basic rationality. Don't fight if you don't think you can win it. The Jedi and clone run away from countless battles when they think they can't win - why are they not cowards, but Grievous supposedly is one for not sacrificing himself in some pointless tussle he doesn't believe he can win?

    Much as I hate to bring it up, his behavior when surrounded by the Gungan army shows exactly why I find it hard to believe he's supposed to be some coward. He emerges from his ship to find that he's been betrayed by his "allies", and his entire army is shut down. He's alone, surrounded by thousands of enemy soldiers, and offered the chance to surrender. A coward, like Nute Gunray, would immediately seize on that offer to save his own skin. Grievous' reaction is to draw swords and start killing. How is that the behavior of a coward?

    I don't understand why a big deal was made on TCW that he is a coward, when all he did was make tactical retreats like many other villains have like Cad Bane, Dooku Ventress, Maul and Savage. I agree Nute Gunray is a coward, but if what Grievous does makes him a coward than most of the main TCW villains are cowards.

    FINALLY, there are people in this thread that are making sense.

    I mean, there probably were before, too, and I just haven't bothered to read through all 41 pages of this thread to find them.
