His lack of sight does not hold this skilled warrior back in battle, as is evidenced by his captivating confrontation against the Empire.
Though R2-D2 is still a fan-favorite, the introduction of this loyal astromech droid in The Force Awakens gave Star Wars fans a new adorable droid to root for.
Once Anakin destroyed the Separatist leaders on Mustafar, he truly shows he's given in to the dark side when we get a glimpse of his eerie "Sith eyes."

After Finn's attempt to take on Princess Leia and Han Solo's evil son, it falls on Rey to face off with him in an epic lightsaber battle. She finds the force within to defeat him in this powerful scene.
Obi-Wan nonchalantly shows us how strong the Force truly is. With a swipe of his hand, he "convinces" the sandtroopers "these are not the droids you're looking for."
The Millennium Falcon might not look like much -- until it gets kicked it into hyperspace, that is. Once Han Solo and Chewbacca get the Falcon going, you can see how that bucket of bolts did the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.
In Empire Strikes Back, we finally get a glimpse of what's under the mask of Darth Vader. And what we see is not pretty.
In another step toward the dark side, Anakin beheads Count Dooku with two lightsabers at the behest of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

It doesn't get much more bad-ass than raising your hand and stopping a blaster shot from Han Solo. But that's exactly what Lord Vader does.
The podrace in The Phantom Menace gave us our first look at Anakin Skywalker's piloting skills, along with an action-packed sequence that finally made this prequel feel like Star Wars.
The battle arena scene was all kinds of awesome in Attack of the Clones, but the highlight was Mace Windu's decapitation of poor Jango Fett.
You'll never look at a garbage chute the same way again after seeing the trouble Luke, Han and Leia find themselves in A New Hope.

Carrie Fisher's digital re-creation to close out Rogue One with a message of "hope" was perhaps the most talked-about moment of the latest Star Wars installment.
Following their daring escape from the Death Star, Luke and Han must destroy a squadron of TIE fighters. As they blast away, we get one of our first glimpses of some amazing space battles.
In Revenge of the Sith, Darth Sidious commences "Order 66," which is the extermination of all Jedis. Anakin Skywalker-turned-Darth-Vader carried out the evil order on this dark day in the galaxy.
Our first sight of Star Wars also was one of the most majestic. The Imperial Destroyer that stretches the screen feels infinite, like the galaxy about to be explored.
Within seconds we get our first glimpse of Darth Vader, Princess Leia, C-3PO and R2-D2 and an awesome gunfight.
Everyone remembers the first time they watched Return of the Jedi and got to see Princess Leia in her iconic gold bikini.
The tiny attire didn't stop Leia from choking out Jabba the Hutt with her chain "leash" in the daring escape from the Jabba's Yacht at the Sarlacc pit.
Ever since Yoda debuted in Empire Strikes Back,fans have wanted to see what the Jedi master could do with a lightsaber. Attack of the Clones gave us quite the taste of Yoda's skills as he took on the dangerous Count Dooku in an epic duel.

As the Emperor tortures Luke, we see how strong the dark side can be with some devastating damage dealt by Force lightning.

The Sarlacc pit was one of the best action sequences the Star Wars saga has seen. Luke gets to show off his improved mastery of his lightsaber, while Han, Chewie and Lando escape in style.
Once Darth Vader's mask is lowered onto his badly burnt head and his first iconic breath is taken, we see the rise of one of the greatest villains in cinema.
Darth Maul wasn't around for very long, but he did possess the most kick-ass weapon in any galaxy: a double-bladed lightsaber.
Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn's two-on-one duel against Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace showed how exciting a lightsaber battle could be.
After watching Darth Maul defeat Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan uses the Force to leap and grab his Jedi Master's lightsaber to slice the Sith in half.
This was the showdown every fan was waiting for: Anakin versus Obi-Wan. The epic battle between former master and apprentice on Mastafar ended with Obi-Wan badly beating Anakin, who was burnt alive on the lava planet.
Luke Skywalker's troubles with the Force continued when he couldn't lift his X-Wing out of the swamp in Degobah. Yoda, using the Force, raises the ship from the bog, which exemplifies why when it comes to the Force, size matters not.
As Darth Vader had Luke Skywalker in his crosshairs, the once-departed Han Solo saves the day by shooting down Vader's cavalry. We knew Han wasn't a dirty scoundrel.
Moments before being frozen in carbonite, Princess Leia professes her love for Han by saying, "I love you," and Han replies perfectly, "I know." Han Solo, ladies and gentleman.

Besides Han Solo's "Chewie, we're home," the long-awaited Han and Leia reunion was one of the biggest moments of The Force Awakens trailer that had fans rushing to theaters to see the film.
Yes, Han Solo shot first. As the sly smuggler departs after killing Greedo, he tosses some credits to the bartender and drops the classic line, "Sorry about the mess." Han Solo is the coolest.
It doesn't get much more intense than Han Solo carefully navigating the Millennium Falcon through an asteroid field in Empire Strikes Back.
This wasn't the most agile lightsaber duel in Star Wars history, but who cares? It's freakin' Obi-Wan versus Darth Vader for the final time.
Obi-Wan throws everyone a curveball by sacrificing himself so Luke can fulfill his destiny. Darth Vader is in such shock that he had to investigate Obi-Wan's robes to make sure he finished the job.
This is what everything in Star Wars had been building to: the redemption of Anakin Skywalker. As the Emperor is draining the life of Luke, Vader gives balance to the Force by killing the Sith Lord and saving his son's life in Return of the Jedi.
It doesn't get much better than the aerial assault that led to Luke Skywalker using the Force to destroy the planet-destroying Death Star.
This lightsaber match between father and son was a little hard to watch at times, with Luke being so easily overpowered by the stronger Darth. On top of that, Vader drops the emotional bomb/quotable line, "No, I am your father."
