Darth Vader is a fictional character and the central antagonist in the Star Wars saga, George Lucas's six-film science fiction saga. Vader originally appeared as the Empire's villainous enforcer in the original Star Wars trilogy. He is played by David Prowse inside the costume and is voiced by James Earl Jones in the original trilogy, and in the prequel trilogy, played by Jake Lloyd, and then Hayden Christensen.
He provides the central theme to the six Star Wars movies, the original trilogy describing the defeat of the Imperial Forces which Vader commands, and his eventual conversion from the "Dark Side", whilst the subsequent prequel trilogy concentrates upon Vader's youth and conversion to the "Dark Side". He provided a suitably evil and frightening "bad guy" character in the original Star Wars trilogy, and more generally has come to epitomize the forces of evil. Proving that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Darth Vader parodies and references, notably to his characteristic voice and breathing, appear throughout modern humor.
Darth appears from the series of Chuckimation shorts "Mystic Wars". His pet is Cinnamon who is actually Gary the Snail from Spongebob Squarepants.
