** It's more a case of "Anakin" and "Vader", while being the same person, are two separate identities based on the side of the force he was aligned with. So when Anakin turned to the Dark Side, the "Vader" identity effectively killed the "Anakin" identity (though not quite) and when he redeemed himself, the "Anakin" identity reemerged and killed the "Vader" identity along with Palpatine.

[[folder:Anakin and Darth Vader]]

* Why do some fans talk about Vader and Anakin like they are two separate entities? I keep hearing "Vader killed Anakin" and "Anakin killed Vader to save Luke" from fans. I know it's true from a "certain point of view", but they make it sound like Anakin was possessed by an evil spirit, or something.

[[folder:Selfish, Stupid, or Evil]]

* Can a Sith or anyone else who had fully embraced the dark side still do good things out of altruism (or at least trick themselves into thinking they are), or does the dark side kill all their morality and attachments, so they only act selfishly, or does it simply compel someone to uphold the universal standard of evil? I can ignore Palpatine in this case, because it's generally accepted he was a biological psychopath as well as gifted with the force, but Darth Vader is probably the most confusing case. He claims he's just doing what needs to be done to keep the peace, yet he does things that blatantly go against his morality like child-murder, genocide, and slavery (which the Clone Wars established was his {{Berserk Button}}), and don't benefit him directly. And it was show any feeling of compassion or conscience (like not wanting to see his son tortured) is enough to make him sacrifice himself to fight the Empire. Same goes for Dooku and Jacen Solo, who were alienated from their Jedi orders for matters of personal morality, but became {{Obviously Evil}} almost immediately afterwards with no remorse.

* How strong is Palpatine? I always wonder if he could have killed Yoda at any time during their fight scenes, but chose to toy around with him. To this day, I still think Palpatine could have killed Windu, but wanted Anakin to kill the jedi so he can turn to the dark side.

** That is actually a nearly unanswerable question. Personally I find it laughable that he could have killed Windu without Anakin's intervention. In what is now canon (The movies, The Clone Wars, and Rebels), he is shown to be rather powerful but so is Windu and many other Jedi. Its all really up to your interpretation of what we see in the movies and canon shows. Palpatine's death, however, suggests the man is far more pathetic than any of us want to admit.
