Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong.
~ Darth Vader to Luke Skywalker

The Jedi turned against me. Don't you turn against me!
~ Anakin Skywalker to Padmé Amidala

I have been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner. Now, I am the Master.
~ Darth Vader to Obi-Wan Kenobi

Master, if we keep this chase going any longer that creep is gonna end up deep fried. And personally, I'd very much like to find out who he is, and who he's working for. This is a short cut... I think.
~ Anakin Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi

With the Galactic Empire


Anakin Skywalker was a slave on Tatooine, until a Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, freed him under the assumption he was the Chosen One of Jedi legend. Under the tutelage of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin would rise up to the rank of Jedi Knight, and was known as a great fighter and a skillful pilot. However, he was also viewed as a bit arrogant and had some temper issues.

Anakin was also friends with Chancellor Palpatine, who he would soon learn to know as Sith Lord, Darth Sidious. Anakin soon found himself manipulated by the Sith, until finally he was turned over to the Dark Side of the Force, and renamed Darth Vader. He led the 501st Legion in carrying out Order 66, which was designed to kill his former Jedi brethren. Following the attack of the Jedi Temple, Vader was confronted by Obi-Wan on Mustafar. After a long and brutal battle, Anakin lost both his legs, his left arm, and suffered major burns by the lava. His Master soon found him, giving him cybernetic limbs, and a suit in order to be kept alive. Anakin was long gone, and a new Sith Lord was truly born.

Respect Threads



  • Darth Vader is the third Star Wars character to appear in DEATH BATTLE!. The first two being Boba Fett and Luke Skywalker.
    • He is the second Star Wars character to lose a DEATH BATTLE!, following Boba Fett
  • Darth Vader is the second non-DC character to lose to a Marvel character, the first being Raiden.
    • Despite this, a Spanish Versus Internet Show that's similar to Death Battle called Batalha Mortal (or Mortal Battle in English) actually states that Darth Vader would win against Dr. Doom due to the fact he can't counter Darth Vader's ability to mess up his organs by means of The Force (it should be pointed out that Batalha Mortal has done a striking number of VS fights that Death Battle has already done, all of those fights agree with the only exception of Darth Vader VS Dr. Doom).
  • Orson Welles was considered to be the voice of Vader; but was considered too recognizable since the actor was so famous.
