  • Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious became synonymous with Evil Overlord types. In particular, his black robe and the line "Everything is going as I have foreseen it!", which is used to mock politicians that people consider to be cartoonishly corrupt.
  • Palpatine's death by being thrown down the Death Star's reactor shaft by the redeemed Vader/Anakin has also become iconic and is occasionally invoked in memes speculating someone's defection from a higher power.
  • "Many Bothans died to bring us this information." Enough that it went memetic again as a mock spoiler to Rogue One, even though the film is about the first Death Star.
    • A related meme is that the line doesn't refer to many... well, Bothans, but instead refers to an individual named Many Bothans.
  • The iconic scene with the Force Ghosts of Anakin, Yoda, and Ben is often edited to incorporate a recently deceased fictional character or real person, from the cast of The Walking Dead to Carrie Fisher herself.
