While many celebrated their favorite Jedi to commemorate Star Wars day yesterday, today is a day for the Dark Side, as we ring in #RevengeOfTheFifth. That’s right; it is a day where the bad boys and girls of this universe get to join together and talk about their favorite Sith and Dark Jedi.
To join in on that fun, we’ve come up with a list of four video game Star Wars characters so cool that you’ll want to join the Dark Side just to hang out with them.
Nihilus – Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II
Before becoming a Dark Lord of the Sith, Nihilus was one of the many victims of the Jedi’s War. He lost everything during the Galactic Republic’s war against the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders, narrowly surviving the Mass Shadow Generator superweapon that was used to surround Malachor V.
Surviving this incident drove Nihilus to seek more of this shadow, causing him to crave Force energy. He eventually becomes so powerful that he can consume the essence of entire planets, robbing them of life in the process.
Considering this power, it is no wonder that he carries such a terrifying presence whenever he is on screen in Knights of the Old Republic II, as each encounter makes you dread actually having to fight him. The combination of a haunting character design and a creepy, unintelligible scrambled voice also added to his presence, making him one of the scariest antagonists in Star Wars history.
