Added DiffLines:

* ColdHam: I [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness rarely]] need to raise my voice to command anyone's attention. My mere presence inspires awe, if not dread. My [[TranquilFury opinions]] on my subordinates' performance come through quite clearly, and even my execution methods boil down to a fairly low-key hand gesture.


* {{Leitmotif}}: My official military theme, the "Imperial March", is a very menacing and masterful piece of music. For composing it, I intend to reward Creator/JohnWilliams handsomely.

* PsychicStrangle: How I frequently dispose of any incompetent subordinates or any officers foolish enough to mock me. I famously gesture while doing so, but I do not need to. Many other Sith, my master more famously, opt for [[PsychoElectro electrocuting them]], but I'm unable to as such powers require functioning organic limbs, something I lack.

[[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi Soon, I shall seek out Skywalker again]], and observe the outcome. Perhaps the threat of a second Death Star will be enough to crush the Rebellion and leave Luke with no choice. I have recently had numberous premonitions about my legacy, the most frequent being that a descendant, apparently by the name of "[[SelfDemonstrating/EmoKyloRen Kylo Ren]]" will take after me some time after my death, but it remains to be seen whether he will truly carry out the dreams and visions that I had for the galaxy.

* MookHorrorShow: Most of my victims are filled with dread upon witnessing what I am capable of. A notable example was during the Battle of Scarif, where I effortlessly slaughtered a group of rebels after the door to their escape was jammed shut. The mere [[VaderBreath sound of my breathing]] and the activation of my [[LaserSword lightsaber]] sent them into a panic before the slaughter even began. Sometimes, even Jedi have fled from me in fear upon realizing how great my powers truly are.

* ComicallySerious: Some of my words I've said with a straight face have been humorous to you terrans, such as my dismissal of Admiral Ozzel as "as clumsy as he is stupid," or my interactions with [[LaughablyEvil Triple-Zero]].

* {{Yandere}}: I adamantly seek out young Skywalker, for he is my son and my likely gateway to becoming Emperor; during my time as a Jedi, I behaved this way towards Padmé as well. Your association of this trope with [[Anime/MiraiNikki young, poorly-behaved adolescent girls]] [[{{Anime}} from bizarre cartoons]] highly disgusts me.

I took an interest in Luke Skywalker—my son, and the aspiring Jedi—whom I knew to be alive and well. I felt his strength in the Force as I attempted to destroy his ship during the battle. My master wished to find him too, but only to replace me as his Sith apprentice. Three years after the Battle of Yavin, in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', the Emperor charged me with finding Luke Skywalker and bringing Skywalker before him. As my master believed, his love for his friends led him straight into my trap. But his connection to the Force had improved significantly since our last encounter, allowing him to escape the carbon freezing chamber. With that trap defeated, I was prepared to face him in lightsaber combat. Yet, after subduing him in battle, I attempted to [[WeCanRuleTogether persuade my son join the Dark Side]] under ''my'' tutelage, with the belief that we can overthrow the Emperor together and bring order to the galaxy as father and son. He rejected my offer, choosing to plunge into Cloud City's undersection to be rescued, but while my initial plan was unsuccessful, the Emperor's plan had advanced sufficiently to reach the next stage.

* ArchEnemy: Although I hope my son, [[TheHero Luke Skywalker]], will one day [[WeCanRuleTogether accept things from my point of view and join me]], for now he is still a dangerous threat who could potentially destroy TheEmpire if left unchecked, not to mention that he personally destroyed the [[KillSat Death Star]], killed [[VillainousFriendship Grand Moff Tarkin]], and threw the galaxy into chaos, which has earned him my personal attention even before I discovered his identity. Before him I had [[OldMaster Obi-Wan Kenobi]], my [[APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil former master]], who was the reason [[DarkLordOnLifeSupport I am trapped in this wretched suit]], and whom I have spent years trying to locate so I could exact my revenge, before finally succeeding when I faced him on board the Death Star. To a lesser extent, I have that traitor, [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Princess Leia Organa]], a corrupt former Senator who abused her political influence to aid the Rebels and undermine the Empire, eventually enabling the aforementioned destruction for the Death Star, crimes for which she will be brought to justice for. [[ActionGirl Ahsoka Tano]], my former apprentice, opposed me during the early days of the Rebellion, and the two of us dueled of Malachor, and she actually managed to damage me during that duel. By contrast, Ahsoka's Jedi allies, Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus, were hardly even a challenge to me. In ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', I had my former secret apprentice, [[PersonOfMassDestruction Galen Marek/Starkiller]], whose [[YouKilledMyFather father I killed]], and who managed to defeat me in combat and sacrificed his life to rescue the Rebel leaders I captured after I turned on him when he [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived his usefulness]]. In the sequel, [[LegacyCharacter the cloned Starkiller]] also held this role for me after he turned on me at the beginning of the game, and I spent the entire game trying to recapture him, culminating with the new Starkiller defeating me in a RoaringRampageOfRevenge when he believed I killed his SatelliteLoveInterest, the [[HeelFaceTurn traitor Juno Eclipse]].

* AchillesHeel: [[spoiler: Force Lightning fries my prosthetics, and as such, I cannot use it nor can I successfully defend against it. This is one reason why it is so difficult to overthrow my master. He knew this would happen as a side effect of my transformation into a cyborg. In fact, he counted on it to prevent me from rebelling against him. Unfortunately for him, I did not need force lightning to kill him in Episode VI.]]

* EvilLaugh: The only instance I have ever done so was in my ending ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur IV]]'', I did this when I claimed the power of both [[DarkIsEvil Soul Edge]] and [[LightIsNotGood Soul Caliber]]. Unlike [[{{Sadist}} my master]], I am too [[TheStoic stoic]] to see any real reason to do so, and I have never done so otherwise. Of course, Soul Edge is said to [[DemonicPossession corrupt and control the mind and soul of its wielder]], and Soul Caliber was eventually revealed to be NotSoDifferent, so I guess [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness it does make sense]] that I acted OutOfCharacter when I wielded the two blades.

** In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' Season 1, [[TheHeavy the Grand Inquisitor]] is the main threat to Ezra and Kanan, but I was the one who sent him to hunt force-sensitive children in the first place. Even in Season 2, where I take a more active role, I only ever confront them in the season premier and the finale, and instead I have [[TheBrute the Fifth Brother]] and [[DarkActionGirl the Seventh Sister]] continuing the hunt on my behalf.

Although my armor and cybernetics are certainly a factor in my durability, it ThePowerOfHate, which fuels my connection to the dark side, that has truly kept me alive time after time.

Most of you Terrans know of my exploits surrounding the Battle of Yavin, as depicted in the film ''Film/ANewHope'' and ''Film/RogueOne'' and the subsequent events of the Galactic Civil War. Shortly before that fateful battle, I reminded one of the Empire's more self-entitled officers that they best temper their ambitions around me. Afterwards, I had to clean up his mess and slaughtered my way through a bunch of Rebel soldiers to retrieve the plans of the Empire's latest Super Weapon. As swift as my elimination of the Rebel scum was, the plans eluded me, forcing me to give chase to the rebels across the galaxy. During the Battle of Yavin, I captured Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan, whom I now know to be my daughter, and attempted to coerce her to reveal the location of the hidden Rebel base on Yavin 4. We used mind probes and the Death Star to pressure her into giving us its coordinates, but she resisted our efforts despite Tarkin's decision to make an example of Alderaan to all who oppose the Empire. The Princess was rescued by a smuggler and an aspiring Jedi in an unforeseen infiltration of the station that I quickly turned to the Empire's advantage by allowing the perpetrators to escape with a homing beacon aboard their ship. Obi-Wan Kenobi sacrificed himself to allow them to escape. They led us right to their base, yet despite my best efforts to compensate for Grand Moff Tarkin's regrettable tactical errors defending the station in battle, the Rebels, particularly the aforementioned aspiring Jedi, emerged triumphant. But this would not be the end.
