  • DARTh vader is the best

    He is the best, Simply cause he is very good inside. . Thats why he always protected his kids in his way and sacrificed himself for them! A great warrior and Jedi! Just misunderstood cause of his passions and human flaws! Yes he became a “villain” but he was a true used victim. . Such tragic story! I love him wish he had a second chance to show his good side again! Darth Vader is star wArs!

  • Don't ignore the prequels.

    I agree with some of the points on the opposing side but some people are ignoring the prequels. . . The whole point of the prequels was to show Anakin Skywalker, A faithful knight of the order and how he was slowly seduced to the dark side by the evil Chancellor Palpatine, The future Emperor. In the phantom menace, He was much like his son Luke Skywalker. He lived on Tatooine and even was talented at pod racing and mechanics. In AoTC and RoTS he is the from Luke in that he cares deeply for his family after his Mother is dead and he sees visions of Padme. Then towards the middle he makes a deal with the devil Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and is anointed as Darth Vader. It is even shown at the end of RoTS he is crying over all the actions he has done, But still continues for the love of his wife. Then after he gets badly burned on Mustafar he has to live with what he has done. Luke gave into the darkness when he defeated Darth Vader in RoTJ after Darth Vader threatened to turn Leia to the dark side. Anakin made a deal with the devil, But Luke did not. Either way they both gave into the darkness at pivotal points in the films.

  • Everybody deserves a second chance.

    Although "Anakin" killing Younglings may be frowned upon, In the end as "Lord Vader" a lord Sith, A feared being by many, And a god to the sand people, Even though the galaxy feared him, In the end he redeemed himself of his past. Like most would say "You focus on your future and leave the past behind. "

  • In the end, Darth Vader is a hero

    Darth Vader is a hero for the following reasons: He sacrificed himself for luke, he spared luke twice, he turned on Palpatine, he felt guilty about Padme,and he returned to the light side after destroying planets for a living,. Thus I believe Darth Vader is not JUST good, but a true hero.

  • He is a balancer

    He is a balancer. According to jedi code life is unbalanced because of one should be live without passion. He have great passions about life and just because he needs to know dark side of the force. He sacrified himself to give the balance of the force. So he is a balancer of the force he is really a hero.

  • Yes he is

    I think he did what he had to do in order to save the people he loves he saved Luke from Palpatine and his spirit went to the good side which I think is proof he diserved to go there so he was good he just when through a rough part in his life and seeing his son was alive made him see the good inside of him

  • Darth Vader is a bad guy

    He helped kill many Jedi, like the panawans and Mace Windu. He kept a sith alive and he commited many crimes. Many died beucaes of him. He is defenify a bad guy. He is part of the dark side . . . . . . . . . . L

  • Depends if you're a rebel or with the empire.

    Was George Washington a good guy or a bad guy? He was known to be an extremely strict authoritarian, like Vader, he killed many people, employed mercenaries, caused financial ruin to many people who were not directly involved in the war but did have investments in the American colonies. He undoubtedly told lies, despite the nursery rhyme's claim. Nearly froze.And starved.His troops.At.Valey forge... I'm sure that the list could go on and on.. In short, show me any high ranking war hero, and I'll show you an ideologically driven killer capable of disregarding the value of human life. Likewise, if you produce a villian, I'm sure they can argue that what they were doing what they judged to be was for the best.

  • Ignoring the prequels

    Ignoring the prequels (for obvious reasons) I would have to say that Darth Vader was not a good guy. In the end he is a redeemed villain, but he did take part in the destruction of an entire planet, is responsible for some major suffering throughout the galaxy and murders quite a few people over the course of the trilogy. I think if he didn't die at the end, then he would have to spend the rest of life atoning for his crimes. A mass murderer saving someone's life and saying sorry does not automatically make them good. He is a bit of a tragic villain, but still a villain.

  • There is no way anyone can claim that Darth Vader was a good guy.

    Vader killed Mace Windu when the Jedi Master was attempting to arrest and execute a man who had begun a civil war with the intent of gaining absolute power; he participated in the massacre of the Jedi order, which led to their virtual extinction, and did not hesitate to kill children; furthermore, he order the destruction of an entire planet and its inhabitants. This is not an exhaustive list. Just because in the end he decided to kill Sidious and save his son it doesn't mean that he was "good".

  • Anakin Skywalker is good. Darth Vader is bad.

    Anakin Skywalker was a great guy. He followed the Jedi way, hated when people broke the Jedi way, and always put others first. Even since he was a young boy. With that said, he was put through a lot in his life. His mom died, his wife died, he really had no family, he was constantly battling acceptance. Anakin himself was very good. But since he was weak, Palpatine managed to corrupt his mind and turn him bad. So Anakin is good, Darth Vader is bad. It isn't until Luke Skywalker brings the Anakin out of Darth that Darth shows any good. But even then, Darth Vader is still bad. It's just that Anakin was still alive in that dark soul.

  • He is horrible

    He KILLED CHILDREN! He abused his wife and killed her. Not Raising His Kids
    Killed His Master Obi-Wan
    Slaughtered Jedi Temple on Mustafar
    Cut Off His Son’s Hand
    Tortured His Daughter Leia
    Let His Daughter’s Home Planet Get Destroyed
    Violently Beat Rush Clovis Out of Jealousy
    Destroyed Several Rebel Squadrons
    Made His Son an Orphan
    Killed Mace Windu
    He destroyed planets

  • One good deed does not redeem a man of a lifetime of wickedness

    Return of the Jedi came out before Revenge of the Sith, so Anakin in his first moments of being Darth Vader was not known to the public. After I watched Revenge of the Sith, I concluded that Vader is beyond redemption. He slaughtered a bunch of younglings, almost strangled his wife to death and almost killed his own mentor. Redemption is not an option for that monster.

  • He is Evil

    Anakin Skywalker was obviously good but with some noticeably flaws early in his life. Obi Wan and Yoda started to notice his impatience and anger in life and quickly predicted what path he could be going down. Anakin slaughtered children and Mace Windu all for his wife. Vader is evil.

  • He is a meany

  • Darth Vader is a high ranking Jedi Knight. He stands as one of the most iconic and greatest villains in fiction in general.

    One of the major villains of science fiction or speculative fiction as the genre is now known, Darth Vader has had a lot of bad press since the first Star Wars film was released in 1975. But how much of it was deserved? For historical characters are rarely portrayed accurately in films. In fact, the actual portrayal can be very wide of the mark indeed, and if those portrayals are any guide, Vader’s real crime may well have been to lose the war and have his history written by the winners, or rather those who were sufficiently terrified of the winners to lie.

  • He slaughtered children...

    Supported the use of a weapon of mass destruction to delete an entire planet from the galaxy. Sure he repents at the end of his life, but how many innocent people where caught in the cross fire. How many slave mom's did he kill in his quest for vengeance. He has no code of conduct, and lashes out like a spoiled child at the slightest insult. He was the poster child for "Make the Empire great again."
