  • He is definitely a hero!

    Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker) ended up bringing balance to the force at the end. He became Palpatine's apprentice just so he could save his wife, and at the end of RotJ he doesn't let the Emperor kill Luke. Many say this is a good trait of Luke Skywalker when he doesn't kill Vader, but Vader doesn't kill Luke either, so he is actually a hero.

  • He is a real hero!

  • He is good...

    I believe he is doing bad for a good reason. All he wanted was to keep his family and loved ones safe, just like any of us. After his mom died he was told that if he trained to become a Jedi knight he would have the powers to heal anyone. And he basically killed everyone who stood in the way of that.

  • He is good

    You can tell in episode iii that he knew it was wrong to kill Count Dooku but he did it anyway because Palpatine told him too, so you can see what type of influence the emperor had over him. He only turned to the dark side because he felt he had no other choice to save Padame's life and once she died, he had already killed the younglings and committed all those terrible things that he couldn't go back to the light side.

  • He is mostly good!

    The only reason Anakin Skywalker turned evil, was because he wanted to stop his wife from dying. Can you really blame him for that? Also when he died he told Luke that he was right, about there still being good in him! He also took off his mask, so Luke could see the face of his father, not a Sith Lord. He also built C-390, and who wouldn't want him to have lived and done that?

  • He is good

    He only joined the dark side in order to save his wife which failed and he was left with no one which made him weak enough for palpatine to seduce him into the dark side. He loved his son Luke and killed palpatine in order to save him. He also loves leia and told Luke to tell her that he was wrong. When he dies he comes back as a ghost alongside yoda and obiwan he does not come back as Vader but as anakin who was a Jedi showing he died and came back good.

  • He is not a power hungry Sith Lord, he is Anakin Skywalker.

    Anakin Skywalker spent his whole life protecting and avenging his family, only to lose everything standing up for what he believed in... Is that so evil? He loved his mother and vanquished those who killed her. He loved Padme and spent his teenage and adult life protecting her and attempting to save her. He stood for the Republic and destroyed any and all threats (including the Jedi because he saw them as a threat) to that institution. After his world collapsed and his wife died, children scattered, and his beloved institution fell, he clung to the only form of love he could find; the emporer. He did all he could to receive love and praise from the only person remaining in his life, no matter how "evil" others thought it was. It was still for his "family". When Luke returned to Anakin, he finally was set free from the shackles the emporer had on him and saved Luke by killing Darth Sidious and ending the empire. He was no villain, no evil doer. He was an affectionate man who would do anything for family, for love. He was Anakin Skywalker.

  • He was mislead!

    Back then, he was mislead into quick power, but deep inside, he is a relatively good person. He only used the wrong tactics to gain control, or to earn friendships, earn trust, earn power, etc. It's like how we make mistakes but Darth Vader was just not given another chance to redeem himself.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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."
