*** From the same game, however, Darth Sion ''does'' fit the bill a bit more. He's immensely strong and skilled with a lightsaber, whose horrific injuries require him to call on the Dark Side of the Force just to stay alive. He even has a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgrXBVzzDuw deep, threatening, grating, Vader-esque voice]] that sounds as if there's a cybernetic in there ''somewhere''. There's definitely more than a hint of Vader in him.

* The original Darth Vader from the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films is the {{Trope Namer|s}}.
** Darth Maul is obviously an Expy of Darth Vader in a TheDragon sort of way. Count Dooku is also an Expy of Darth Vader, but he's actually got more in common with The Emperor. General Grievous is a bit closer to Vader; Darth Vader has trouble breathing, Grevious has a cough, and they're both cyborgs. WordOfGod says the three were used for {{foreshadowing}}, each one being an element of Vader: Maul as TheDragon who enforces the Emperor's will, Dooku as a fallen Jedi, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Grievous as a cyborg with breathing problems]].
*** Maul [[AvertedTrope averts]] this after he returns in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', as CharacterDevelopment plus [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness being thought of as dead and abandoned by Palpatine]] forces him to forge a new identity. If anything, he becomes [[EvilCounterpart the evil Obi-Wan Kenobi]] with a bit of Sidious thrown in once he takes on an apprentice in the form of his younger brother [[TheJuggernaut Savage Opress]], who ''does'' fulfill the role.

** All three of Palpatine's [[TheDragon Dragons]] in the prequels are "proto-Vaders," portraying one aspect of his character as a CallForward.

Darth Maul is obviously an Expy of Palpatine's Dragon, a much more present and physical threat than Darth Sidious and his machinations. He acts as an enforcer of Palpatine's will, working with the Trade Federation but not beholden to them, which parallels Vader in a TheDragon sort of way. Count Dooku is also an Expy of Darth Vader, but he's actually got on the first Death Star. He doesn't even get more than a single line in common with The Emperor. General Grievous is a bit closer to Vader; Darth Vader has trouble breathing, Grevious has a cough, and they're both cyborgs. WordOfGod says the three were used for {{foreshadowing}}, each one being an element of Vader: Maul movie, to keep from distracting from his role as TheDragon who enforces the Emperor's will, Dooku as a fallen Jedi, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Grievous as a cyborg with breathing problems]].

TheHeavy. This is subverted after he returns in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', as CharacterDevelopment plus [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness being thought of as dead and abandoned by Palpatine]] forces him to forge a new identity. If anything, he becomes [[EvilCounterpart the evil Obi-Wan Kenobi]] with a bit of Sidious thrown in once he takes on an apprentice in the form of his younger brother [[TheJuggernaut Savage Opress]], who ''does'' fulfill the role.Vader role.
*** Count Dooku is a powerful Jedi who fell from grace and is a much more public face than Darth Sidious. He is also known for a slow and powerful lightsaber style that mirrors Vader's.
*** Grievous is a tortured, half-mad cyborg who is ultimately undone by his reliance on his machines. He even has a breathing problem like Vader, though it is nowhere near as distinctive.



** Symbolizing the extent to which he's HeWhoFightsMonsters, the extremist Rebel leader Saw Gerrera has become a Vader Clone by the time of ''Film/RogueOne''. In the intervening years since his appearance in ''WesternAnimation/TheCloneWars'', he's ended up with a largely cybernetic body and has a breathing problem which gives him a raspy voice and necessitates occasional use of an inhaler, resulting in VaderBreath.

* Sepulchure from ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds' and ''VideoGame/DragonFable''. He wears armor and a helm that covers his face, wields a sword, has a BadassCape, is a FallenHero who was once the greatest knight. Especially the case in AQW, where he serves as an ArchNemesisDad to his daughter Gravelyn during "Adventure Quest Worlds Zombies", and ends up [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to save his daughter's life from a greater evil.]]

* [[TheJuggernaut Savage Opress]], Darth Maul's younger brother, in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' fits all the criteria. A once noble warrior who is corrupted and twisted physically and mentally, but who willingly submits to the corruption to protect a loved one, only to kill said loved one due to their being twisted by the dark side, losing an arm to Obi-Wan Kenobi, and subsequently serving as TheDragon to a powerful Sith Lord (in this case, as mentioned above, Maul himself). Their appearances and demeanors are even quite similar: powerfully built, extremely strong, dressed in black armor, typically stoic, yet short-tempered, and having a deep, intimidating voice. Finally, much like Vader, Savage reverts to his pre-dark side self as he is dying.

* Reaper a.k.a Gabriel Reyes from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' used to belong to the well-respected titular organization. However, he eventually turned against his allies and fought one of his former comrades, almost dying in the process. He just barely recovered, with the process having some unfortunate side effects, and now terrorizes his enemies as a masked shade. Though he's one of the most prominent villains of the story, it's implied he's working for a bigger bad: specifically, the leader of Talon.
