When a legend passes, one must honor and remember them in the best way that they can. Today, we were sad to find out that David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, has passed from an illness at the age of 85. And though we are heart wrenched to hear about his passing, we going to pay tribute to him in the best way that we and the internet can honor anyone - with the best Darth Vader Cat memes.
May the force be with you, David Prowse, in this world and all the others. May he rest in peace and know that he will be remembered in our hearts as one of the most iconic, incredible actors, in one of our absolute ultima favorite franchises. Now, onto the memes and onto the smiles.
We're all about keeping our convictions, but at the end of the day life is anything but black and white. Grey areas keep things interesting. That's kind of the theme of these trending Darth Vader memes. The memes borrow a moment from the 2017 Marvel comic Star Wars: Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 1 in which the masked villain tells Darth Sidious that he finds his new armor acceptable. It's being used to meme situations that are exceptions to our personal rules. For example: if someone calls you motherfucker - but it's Samuel L. Jackson. Let's be real. Thats 100% acceptable. We've put together some of our favorite examples of the memes, but you can learn more about the format over at Know Your Meme. Happy scrolling.
Okay, before you get mad at us for indirectly insulting the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, just hear us out.

In the words of Anakin Skywalker, "I don't like sand. It's coarse, and rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere."

Over the weekend Rogue One: A Star Wars Story debuted to $290.5 million box office take. And yet, with a unicycle and a little fire, this Darth Vader made arguably a better movie.
Portland’s own Unipiper emerged last week to show off some more flaming bagpipes. Well, he’s back. Here we see Darth Vader unicycling the snow planet of Hoth. The flames are to protect him from the cold, so he doesn’t have to cut open a tauntaun.
Anakin Skywalker was initially set to make an appearance as a ghost in The Force Awakens, but he didn't make the final cut. Maybe it's because he looked so, so creepy.
Why the two-face treatment? According to artist Iain McCaig, it's because Anakin's got both good and evil natures inside him:
When you light a candle, you also cast a shadow. That inspired me to propose, for the first time, that Anakin’s ghost could come back … If we see Anakin Skywalker, because he does flow back and forth between Darth Vader and Anakin, let’s see him as a character with a dark and light side. The reason Luke is this whole new entity is because he was the first to acknowledge his own dark side — that it was not separate from him.
It's unclear what part of the film Anakin could have appeared in, but it's likely he'd either have appeared to Kylo Ren, or alongside other series veterans in Rey's Force vision.
Welcome to the dark side… of politics.
Viktor Shevchenko, a former electrician - turned sith lord - turned political candidate, was not allowed to vote in Ukraine's parliamentary election on Sunday, due to the fact that he refused to remove his helmet.
Schevchenko, who legally changed his name to Darth Vader prior to the elections, said he "would die if he took his helmet off," according to ABC News.
He arrived at the polling station standing atop a large black van blasting the Imperial March.
Vader was running in the Ukraine's Internet Party, with promises to turn the Ukraine into a "galactic empire" and build a military space station "that will protect the whole territory of Ukraine."
