This just out of curiosity btw. While I duel the jedi and sith enemies in the jedi knight games, I find that when I defeat them, sometimes the enemy would plunge the lightsaber into themselves during the death sequence animation. Not all the time but sometimes.

I am wondering if it is intentional programming?? or is it a bug??

Do jedi really commit seppuku in the novels?? Just out of curiosity because it kinda struck me as a "hey that wasn't in the jedi manual or was it....?".

Again, I haven't read the novels so I don't know if characters are potrayed in drastically different ways.

i've played every jedi knight game extensively (JK1 for 5 Years, JK2 from the gay it came out to the day JK3 came out, and JK3 since it came out to the present) and i've never once seen that in any game. Is this in single player or multiplayer? because i never played JK1 single player, but i've played every one of them multiplayer.

Yea, coming from a avid DF/JK fan, it's a animation glitch when they went to grab thier stomach in pain.

yeah its a death animation that was somewhat flawed I think it is because the light saber is seperate to the player model so the animator may not have taken that into account.

LOL commit "seppuku" but that would be cool, just like japanese samurai warrior
I thought that action was called "harakiri"...

There's something about seppuku that's so stupid it's outrageous, and somehow it's become one of the most respectable Japanese acts ever (and for whatever reason, has become "cool"). Also, considering that the lightsabers are generally much longer than an arm's length, it'd pretty much be impossible to "seppuku" oneself

you could do it in more of a slashing yourself rather than stabbing, or you could turn it off point it at yourself and turn it on

given the lightsaber is a pure laser light thingy and it appears to be very sharp with objects you wouldn't need to plunge it in you could easily cut your self in half with it without much effort...
