Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving ...read more.


I thought Anakin Skywalker was Darth Vader, any way there both cool! And one of 5 characters that are in all 6. The way he goes from good to evil was pretty messed up too! - westofohio

Darth Vader is the greatest of all time you can't beat him he looks the best he sounds the best and he has the best voice in Star Wars history he's my all time favourite and he always will be not even darth maul comes not even remotely close to this legendary Sith Lord. Darth Vader is number 1 and it will remain that way forever

Darth Vader is quite possibly the greatest tragic hero in the history of cinema. He lost his wife, his best friend Obi Wan, he helped destroy the Jedi, he was a slave to Palpatine and a slave on Tatooine and he lost his body. But still despite all this he redeems himself and chooses to save his son instead of having power. This is why Darth Vader or Anakin Skywalker is the greatest hero of all time but of course also because he is so iconic. - xStaticx

Everything about Darth Vader is iconic. The mask, the breathing, the force, the lightsaber, I could go on and on.. but not only that but the whole saga is pretty much centered around him, from the first movie where you see him as a little kid to when he's a powerful Sith lord who is more evil than any villain in any movie series to when, at the very end, he turns back to the good side, thanks to Luke. He is the roundest character in the series as well, and the series covers pretty much aspect of him. Even though I he's a whiny teenager, I think that's ok because it makes him become this iconic villain that most of us (I saw the original 3 movies before the prequels) are used to. Star Wars would not be Star wars without him.

Thank you so much whoever voted for Darth Vader! He is amazing and so well known! Everyone knows about him. Darth Vader can do so many cool things. He is so powerful and the greatest Sith Lord. I can't express how amazingly complex his backstory is. My dad told me I wouldn't like him after I saw him turn into Darth Vader, but I still love him. My top favorite character is Darth Vader, if you haven't guessed already! I could go on for pages and pages of my praise for George Lucas, and how he concocted up this wonderful story. But I'm gonna end it now: Vader is amazing!

Darth Vader is probably my favorite character; I love him so much. I hate Anakin Skywalker, but this character was so well done. My favorite scene in the trilogy is when he kills Palpatine to save his son. It makes me cry so much...especially when Luke burns his armor. I just don't count the prequels and the Force Awakens as being Star Wars. The original trilogy is Star Wars!

He is a very iconic villain and when you first see him you think, hey, a guy with a mask and a black suit, he must be a villain, but you find out throughout the movies (as in the order that the movies were made) that there is a lot to his story. He is definitely the most layered character in the series and, the most important thing is that he's as powerful as villains get.

Vader would of been the most powerful if Sidious didn't make his suit to hold him back from his power. Of course Sidious was afraid of Vader from overthrowing him for power that's the reason he was in a suit that was designed by Sidious to slow him down and also the reason he killed the sith master and went back to the light side.

Darth Vader is the best. Period. I'm not talking about any of Hayden Christens's Anakin crap. I'm talking about Darth Vader from the original trilogy, the one who took three actors to portray. He's the best Sith Lord, better than Revan, and better than Sidious. He instills fear like no other.

Hailed as one of the best Jedi killers of all time, immensely strong and enduring and a tactical genius. Looks cool and has my favorite saber hilt. Plus, I always played as him when I was a kid on the playground. Rise Lord Vader. Rise to new heights of awesomeness

He kind of has to be at the top. Not only is he a great, well-rounded character (even though the prequels ruined that), he is a symbol of Star Wars. Even people who have never seen Star Wars can identify this guy on sight.

The character you love to hate. He's one of them you secretly liked but couldn't admit it because he was one of the bad guys. Then at the end of Jedi he turns good so now everybody can like him out in the open.

Luke, I am your father. Join me, and together, we can rule the galaxy as father and son. (By the way, don't mention this to the Emperor. He doesn't know I'm rooting him out.)

There is no other character in the franchise that even comes close to the fame this guy has achieved. I wouldn't be suprised if he was voted as the most well known villain, or character, in cinema history. I can't not like this guy, I have his lightsaber for one, and he's been one of my favorites since I was a kid playing Lego Star Wars. Lord Vader deserves number 1

I love him so much in the Empire Strikes Back. How many generals does he go through again? Oh well, it doesn't matter. He's the best.

He is one of my favourite villains of all time! Forget about his younger self where he was played the worst actor on Earth, Darth Vader is one evil yet badass Sith Lord! - Daviddv0601

All Darth Vader merchandise ever sold has been around 40 BILLION DOLLARS. number 1 for Vader

It's true that when people think of star wars, they think of the name luke skywalker but they think of the face (mask) of darth vader

While my personal favorite is Boba Fett, Anakin Skywalker (the true name of Darth Vader) is the icon of Star Wars. George Lucas said it himself the movies are about his story.

Imagine this tall guy with a triangle mouth and heavy scary breathing sounds coming towards you. Yeah...Darth Vader is one of the most iconic villains of all time.

He wanted to protect his loved ones and killed them in the process. A big mistake to make, but he had good intentions before he ended up having nothing to lose

Go to the YouTube video HELLO FROM THE DARK SIDE. Its funny

Darth Vader: "Luke, join me, and together we will destroy the world! " Darth Vader is spooky looking and funny.

I really agree with this. He was conceived by midichlorians so he was the force. He killed the entire Jedi order which was impossible. He killed Obi-Wan and Sideous and was stronger than any of the Jedi masters admitted by all of them. Sideous said that his new apprentice was stronger than any of them so he was stronger than both sideous and yoda together. He defeated Luke with one hand and could make people drop dead with no effort. He is the most important character in star wars. In the prequels he is the main protagonist and in the originals he is the main antagonist so he is star wars. Star wars itself is based on him. And he achieved true unity with the force instantly when he died when Yoda and Obi-Wan trained with Qui-Gonn for years. In the empire he was the most feared thing in the galaxy. now the empire had some scary machines and technology but the one thing that everybody considered to be as the empires greatest weapon was vader. He was feared more than the emperor himself. ...more

He's such a three-dimensional and iconic character and villain. He has a heart, and you can really tell there's still good in him.
