Sincere question here kazoku, Vader could not live without his support system, so he wasn't human at all, yet if his organs rot he dies, so would you consider him:
Don't know what the official Disney tm term is shojiki ni iu to kazoku
"He's more machine than man, now...twisted and evil"
He's a cyborg. All four of his limbs have been replaced. He lost his right hand above the wrist, his left arm at the elbow, and both legs above the knees.
He also has to breathe through an iron lung, and his voice is entirely digitally produced (not just modulated) which is how he can talk and breathe at the same time.
Also there was a really cool scene in Shadows Of The Empire where he tries to use his dark side force powers to heal his lungs, but as soon as it starts to work and he is able to take a breath he feels joy and relief, and the dark side works off of anger and fear so the experience of being able to breathe makes him unable to maintain concentration on his dark side powers. He'd have to figure out how to be angry at the fact that his lungs are healing in order to heal himself with the force.
>The emperor had been playing a mind trick on him all these years. The amor doesn't do anything but weigh him down.
>If he actually ever took it off, his midichlorian levels would skyrocket.
He's a cyborg, plain and simple. Who the hell has to screw up such a simple concept as that with a lot of non-sense stupid terms.
Oh if it's a disney idea that would explain it all, they have to do stupid stuff after all.
>He'd have to figure out how to be angry at the fact that his lungs are healing in order to heal himself with the force.
That's really taking the "power works out of negative emotion" concept to a new level of idiocy.
And I'm really hoping that it was sarcasm when you called the scene "cool".
Okay, smart guy, let's hear YOU write an explanation for why Vader can't heal himself.
Also you're judging the scene just off my short synopsis, you didn't even read the book. That's like judging a show from the wiki episode descriptions without watching it.
>Okay, smart guy, let's hear YOU write an explanation for why Vader can't heal himself.
Because he can't! Bam! Done! Perfect fucking explanation.
Also, sure it could be written in a way that transcends mind to another level and makes even shit seem good, but on pure conceptual level that sounded like absolute fucking shit.
"Vader can't heal his lungs because he wouldn't be angry about them anymore after that."
What a load of fucking bollocks.
In one story Sheev had no idea the medical droids used shit tech for Vader's suit because he some how accidentally gave them a shit budget. In other the shitty, out of date suit was intentional to either prevent Vader from being a threat or grow his dark side powers by making him pissy over the suit being trash.
Way to fail at reading comprehension, mr literary critic.
He has to stay angry *during* the healing in order to complete it. The moment he begins to heal his power fades and no lasting effect occurs.
>the tech used at the EmPal SuRecon centre is subpar
SHEEV WHAT ARE YOU DOING
>"Bring forth the one," Darth Vader announced.
So the dark side is supposed to be all about anger and hate, but vader and the emperor seemed to be some of the most chill guys in the galaxy
expect for maybe the strangling stuff
>Rex dropkicking someone
>Chopper about to go apeshit on another Astromech
>Vader surfing on top of his TIE
This show keeps getting better and better.
>let's hear YOU write an explanation for why Vader can't heal himself.
"Well, he tried that once, but as it turns out, regrowing an arm in the place your cyborg arm is already attached to... he hasn't tried it since."
There you go.
Rens saber crystal is taken from Malachor(visual dictionary).
The planet they're on is rumored to be Malachor post-Scourge so it makes sense Ren tried to recreate a classic design
>the planet they're on is rumored to be Malachor post-Scourge
As in, Starkiller Base was Malachor V? Welp, that's kinda shitty. Here I've been hoping for Malachor or Korriban to be explored in the actual cinematic universe; we've seen how the Jedi rolled with their temple on Coruscant, I want to see a really nice set dedicated to Sith being Sith-y.
>That guys high pitched laugh every other minute
Oh my god!
The singularity has begun!
>could not live without his support system
>wasn't human at all
You think people on life support are not human?
Pototoes/vegetables imply that the person is brain-dead. The term doesn't apply to patients in a coma or otherwise bed-ridden.
I think the term OP might have been looking for is "vegtable".
Not true in Vader's case, as his is closer to, say, someone hooked up to an iron lung. Or, to grasp at a more specific analogy, he's an intensive-care patient where the equipment follows him around.
Helps that his legs are mechanical.
>Bane is still called Bane but looks different now because reasons
>Korriban looks exactly like Korriban but is called Moraband now because reasons
Giorgio loves to trigger the fans
>Says CGI show can't have vibroblades because only a lightsaber is able to stop a lightsaber
>These exist in the movies and the show
According to the lore, he's a combination of a cyborg and undead.
The suit handles the general maintenance of function , keeping him walking, breathing and questioning faith.
He's far too damaged to function effectively with this condition however, that's where Palpatine's power comes in. As he not so subtly states in the prequels, he killed his master after learning the secret to forestalling death. Vader survives through tech, but he lives through the force.
This of course demonstrates the reason he immediately crashes when the emperor dies; the great Darth Vader couldn't be done in by a couple of blasts of lighting, but would die rather easily when his body was no longer "magically" supported.
Healing is rather power intensive. The dark side is powered through hatred, anger, pain and fear.
Next time you get a headache, try to be angry at the pain pills.
If you get a cut, try to hate the gauze as it keeps your insides inside.
Vader's human too, despite all he's been through; and a sith too, making it even more difficult to summon enough stoicism to maintain his power through the emotional catharsis of healing.
Also, I'll bet money Palpatine didn't tell him anything out of the "How to gain Independence and become Sith Master Cookbook" by Sheev P."
That actually adds a tragic value to his life. He went dark to save his wife, but the darkness killed her. The lung deal is similar; he gained unlimited power, but he can't do anything but destroy with it. So for the character, it sounds like a cool scene.
Dude is remembering the scene somewhat off; It explains that it isn't even the first time he's tried doing it. Vader's attempted healing/Dark Side Revelry falters once his mind drifts to Luke. The scene ends with him lamenting that there is too much of Anakin Skywalker/the Light left in him to properly focus and channel the real depths of the Dark side. Honestly all the parts of SotE that aren't Xizor attempted-NTR fun times are pretty good. A lot of character moments for Vader and Luke, mainly in Vader's quest to fucking murder Xizor and Luke's growth in the Force, and the construction of his ROTJ Saber. Dash is barely in it by comparison.
It was pretty cool how each piece of SOTE media told the same story from different perspectives - Dash was the star of the game; the novel was about Luke, Vader and Xizor; the comic detailed Boba Fett's delivery of Han to Jabba and had a subplot about the swoop gang gunning for Luke.
