|This article, Anakin Skywalker, or a section of this article, may require overall cleanup.|
Anakin Skywalker, later known as Darth Vader, was a Jedi, then a Sith, then later redeemed back to the light side because of his son Luke Skywalker. He turned to the Dark Side because of his fear of loss. He was the son of Shmi Skywalker, and was the "Chosen One". He had a blue lightsaber.
Anakin's Early life
Anakin originally lived with his mother as a slave on Tatooine, being born a slave. When he was nine, he was enslaved to Watto and worked at Watto's Shop. It was at this shop that he first met Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, Jar Jar Binks, and Padmé Amidala. Anakin Skywalker often participated in podraces and he also built his own podracer. He won the Boonta Eve Classic podrace, thus winning his freedom through Qui-Gon Jinn's bet with Watto. He participated in the Battle of Naboo in 32 BBY, destroying the Droid Control Ship which then deactivated the Trade Federation's ground forces. This turned the battle into a victory for the Naboo and their allies, the Gungans.
Pre-Clone WarsAnakin trained under the tutelage of Obi-Wan Kenobi for 10 years. After 10 years, he met up with Padmé Amidala and foiled an assassination attempt on her. He returned to Tatooine just to only watch his mother die. He later was led to the planet Geonosis to rescue his master, but was captured himself, along with Padmé, and all 3 were taken to the execution arena. Suddenly over 200 Jedi (if you really want to know, specifically 212) arrived at the scene, followed by 10,000 clones. The trio raced after the Sith Lord Count Dooku, who was cornered in his hangar. Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Dooku started dueling. The duel's results were: Obi-Wan being wounded, Anakin losing his arm at the elbow, both were saved from a giant pillar by Yoda, and Dooku escaped unharmed. Anakin got a robotic arm, and married Padmé in a secret ceremony on Naboo.
Star Wars: The Clone WarsThe Clone Wars he married Padmé Amidala in a secret wedding ceremony on Naboo. He then went on many dangerous missions, such as Yavin 4 and Jabiim. He took on an apprentice named Ahsoka Tano in 21 BBY, who he affectionately called "Snips". She, in return, used to call him "Skyguy". He would duel adversaries such as Durge, General Grievous, Asajj Ventress, Count Dooku, and Dooku's Dark Acolytes. Anakin also managed to return Rotta to his father, Jabba the Hutt. One of his missions involved him destroying the Malevlolence, a superweapon under the command of General Grievous. Skywalker also took part in the Battle of Mon Calamari. Towards the end of the Clone Wars, Skywalker's apprentice, Ahsoka Tano, chose to leave the Jedi Order, as they accused her of being responsible for a bomb attack in the Jedi Temple.

The Video Games
Anakin Skywalker became a playable character in Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, which was released in 2005. This game had several versions of Anakin as a playable character: all notable versions from the Prequel Trilogy were included. It also included Anakin as Darth Vader, in a secret bonus level.
The game's successor was Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, which centered around the Original Star Wars Trilogy. This video game was released in 2006. This game includes 2 versions of Anakin: as Darth Vader and as ghost of Anakin. The player could also get access to all the playable characters from Lego Star Wars: The Video Game by using the Old Save feature.
The 2007 released LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga was a combination of the previous Lego Star Wars games. It therefore included all the playable Anakin Skywalker characters from Lego Star Wars: The Video Game and Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy.
