4 Star Wars video game characters so cool you’ll want to join the dark side
While many celebrated their favorite Jedi to commemorate Star Wars Day yesterday, today is a day for the dark side, as we ring the bell #RevengeOfTheFifth. It’s true; it’s a day when the bad boys and girls of this universe come together and talk about their favorite Sith and Dark Jedi.
To join in on the fun, we’ve put together a list of four Star Wars video game characters that are so cool 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 War. He lost everything during the Galactic Republic’s war against the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders, barely surviving the Mass Shadow Generator super-weapon that was used to surround Malachor V.
Surviving this incident made Nihilus seek more of this shadow, causing him to crave Force energy. It eventually becomes so powerful that it can consume the essence of entire planets, robbing them of life in the process.
Given that power, it’s no wonder he wears such a terrifying presence whenever he’s onscreen in Knights of the Old Republic II, as every encounter makes you dread 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 creepiest antagonists in Star Wars history.
