After clone template Jango Fett was killed and the Separatist partners escaped the battle, Dooku met with Sidious at the Coruscant tower in The Works with not only good news that the war the Sith had been orchestrating had begun, but with plans for a Geonosian superweapon that may be of use for their future Sith-led regime. , Meanwhile, the Emperor had Grand Vizier Mas Amedda contact Admiral Piett by hologram. While the Tarsunt senator was betting at a game table, Palpatine said that Colandrus was corrupt, but there were no proofs of it. Sidious proved himself to be not only a match for their combined strength but also superior, as after a prolonged duel, he separated the brothers by first bypassing Savage's defense and knocking him away with a kick and then force-pushed Maul, briefly knocking him out. When he made that mistake, Palpatine would be ready to take advantage of it for his own purposes and ensuring Vader's simultaneous downfall.

Palpatine familySithRoyal House of NabooGalactic RepublicNaboo delegationOffice of the ChancellorTrade FederationConfederacy of Independent SystemsGalactic EmpireSith EternalFirst Order Following the defeat of Teller's insurgency, Tarkin and Vader spent the next three weeks hunting down Teller's collaborators and contacts in a ruthless crackdown. The Emperor then tried again but failed as Bridger and Tano made it back to their world. Ruled by a mercantile nobility called the ore-dukes, Shu-Torun provided important materials the Empire required for its construction projects, including the development of the second Death Star, and the Emperor constantly demanded higher tithes, especially in the aftermath of the Battle of Yavin. Igniting his own crimson lightsaber, Sidious declared the three Jedi traitors to the Republic. However, this played into Teller's hands and allowed the insurgents to steal Tarkin's corvette Carrion Spike, which they intended to turn into a symbol of resistance against the Empire. Enraged and disappointed in Solo, Ren engaged him in a duel.  The Emperor then proceeded to state his desire for the elimination of this threat, yet Vader suggested that young Skywalker could become an ally.

However, he also sent Cylo and his remaining subjects, apparently on Grand General Tagge's request. Vader, who had been told to dispatch the fleet to the moon and to remain on a command ship, sensed his son's arrival. A few minutes later, the Perilous exploded. , After Vader finished off Cylo for good, he returned to his master. Despite these setbacks, Palpatine was able to convene with Amidala on Coruscant, where she intended to plead her case to Chancellor Valorum before the Galactic Senate. He could notice that he was deeply conditioned by his emotions and he asked Master Mace Windu to send Skywalker to him, saying he could help with the boy's formation. Following an attempt to arrest the chancellor, the Great Jedi Purge commenced with Sidious enacting Order 66. , In the original story treatment for Revenge of the Sith, Darth Sidious was intended to reveal that he created Anakin Skywalker through the midi-chlorians, thus making him, in some way, Anakin's father, although George Lucas ultimately cut this out of the film. , In addition, film critic Roger Ebert and film historian Robin Wood noted that Palpatine's appearance resembled Death from the 1957 epic historical film, The Seventh Seal and Queen Grimhilde's witch form in the Disney's 1937 animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. , Nilo Rodis-Jamero's costume concept art for the Emperor in Return of the Jedi, For Return of the Jedi, the role was to be played by veteran thespian Alan Webb, who was 75 years old at the time. During one such exercise, Baylo set a hyperspace route that would have crashed the Defiance into Christophsis' sun. The Council also learned that Teller' insurgents had attacked the TaggeCo mining facilities on Lucazec and were transmitting holovids of their attacks on the HoloNet..

The cloaked master then left Vader to find Luke Skywalker after his apprentice pledged to confront the offspring of Anakin Skywalker and either bring him to the Emperor or have his son destroyed..  Sidious could use Force lightning in a number of ways, including striking multiple enemies at once, with the bolts jumping from one victim to the other, like a chain and imbuing the ground around a victim's feet with energy, effectively electrocuting them.

Although their leader Ren saw potential in Solo's raw power, he doubted the boy's hatred and ability to kill.  He had Bane kidnap these children to his facility on Mustafar to commence the creation of an army of Force-sensitive spies, but the Jedi foiled Bane and rescued the younglings. Darth Plagueis was a male Dark Lord of the Sith who, at some point, chose Sheev Palpatine, a human from Naboo, as his apprentice. Darth Sidious Anakin said the Jedi could arrest Senator Colandrus, but Palpatine replied that the Jedi were not required to obey him because if they did, he would be like a dictator and that wasn't his wish. , For the next ten years, Galli guarded the Plaintive Hand excavation site. , Sidious, as Palpatine, meanwhile, addressed the Senate and accused the Jedi of attempting to assassinate him and overthrow the Republic, using his newly scarred face as evidence. To demonstrate his seriousness, Palpatine Force choked Galli. When Vader ended his meditation, Sidious told him what he had sensed, but the former Jedi pledged his loyalty to his Sith Master. Species , At an opera show, Palpatine and Skywalker discussed the situation with Palpatine revealing to know that the Council wanted Skywalker to spy on him. , There, Palpatine expressed some form of envy in the life of young Jedi Padawans, that was already decided from an early age, in difference with his political life, one of the troubling choices and difficult decisions.

Following the Attack on Chandrila, Rax brought his remnant of the Empire to Jakku.

The Emperor also reshuffled the Ruling Council in the wake of Rancit's execution. Utilizing a violently ferocious yet extremely fluid fighting style, Sidious easily held off the two brothers on equal grounds and ultimately separated them, stunning Maul for a brief time with the Force before swiftly toying with and killing Opress.

And when the time was right, Palpatine revealed himself to the galaxy, vowing revenge. As the war got underway, Dooku crash-landed his ship on Vanqor and was captured by the Ohnaka Gang.  He was even able to use his abilities on a target from hundreds of light years away, using only a holo-transmission to show him his target, allowing him to telekinetically choke and pick up Count Dooku and open the handcuffs of Bridger while projecting himself to their respective locations through the use of a hologram. , At the Emperor's directive, Cylo's subjects were placed at Grand General Tagge's disposal, while the doctor acted as a consultant for the military. However, Amidala had trust in diplomacy. Drua led them to her village, which was home to escaped Twi'lek slaves. , Vader then turned his rage onto the Emperor, throwing him into the wall of the operating room with the Force. He assured them that the Jedi would be at war with the Hutts as well the Confederacy. Sidious was one of the very few who could go head to head with both Yoda and Mace Windu. Darth Sidious was an ambitious Sith Lord who sought to destroy the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic they served. , Sidious was known for being hypocritical and arrogant; whilst he told Yoda that his arrogance had blinded him when the Jedi Master confronted him, he had previously declared himself to be the Senate when Windu tried to arrest him. There the two secretly started to fall in love which, coupled with Skywalker's later discovery of his mother Shmi's death at the hands of Tusken Raiders on the planet Tatooine, would bring the young Jedi ever closer to the dark side of the force, and even more vulnerable to Sidious' deceptive machinations.. Living a double life, he was also Palpatine, a Naboo Senator and phantom menace. Windu and the three other Jedi boldly ignited their lightsabers and declared that he was under arrest.  He was similarly quite bloodthirsty as well, and frequently reveled in combat to the point of laughing while he fought or killed. Vexed by Tyranus' carelessness, Sidious Force choked his apprentice, warning him to remember the price for failure. After a tense few moments, Vader released his master and proclaimed that he would live. Dooku was thus forced to introduce Quinlan Vos, presenting the former Jedi as his "new assassin" to Sidious, who had customarily hidden his facial features behind his dark cowl, whilst Ventress remained hidden in the shadows. The figure referred to Anakin as Father and to Padme as Mother. Kenobi, Skywalker, and his new Padawan, Ahsoka Tano were able to return Rotta to his father and secure a treaty with the Hutts. The Emperor consulted with Minister Hydan regarding the ancient runes of the Mortis Gods. Human (Naboo) At long last, the Emperor was dead, taking a nightmarish era of tyranny with him.  Sidious was gone both in body and soul. The Emperor told him that he had killed Amidala in his anger. Ren's suspicions were confirmed on a mission to the Minemoon after Ben hesitated to kill his former friend and fellow student of Luke Skywalker, Tai. It broke out of its restraints and rampaged through the Senate District before being killed with poison gas. The four retreated into the tunnel with the lyleks in pursuit. However, the plans had escaped aboard the Tantive IV, a CR90 Corvette, in the hands of Princess Leia Organa, the Imperial Senator for Alderaan and a suspected Rebel sympathizer.  With Darth Vader aboard his command ship, the Super Star Destroyer Executor, the Emperor ultimately contacted the commanding officer of the vessel, Admiral Piett, telling him to have Lord Vader contact him immediately. Giving only a vague answer, Sidious ended the holo-communication as the Christophsis Separatist tower fell to Republic gunship fire. Rising to power in the Galactic Senate as the senator of Naboo, the manipulative Sith Lord cultivated two identities, Sidious and Palpatine, using both to further his political career.  Even Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, perhaps Sidious's most trusted servant besides Vader, only suspected that Sidious was a Sith. Master Xehanort vs. Darth Sidious is a What-If Death Battle created by Venage237. He was also impressed with his apprentice's ability to act beyond his knowledge, and how he had been able to acquire a private army of Separatist-era commando droids to use for his own ends. He also believed that in the new world he foresaw, the Force would be rendered obsolete.  Despite Sidious' efforts, the Sith Lord failed to take the Kyber Saber from Rowan, who managed to destroy the weapon.  Despite this, his passion to inflict pain on others and his hate were a priority to him over his own well-being: while he could have used his own powers to save himself from Darth Vader during the Battle of Endor, Sidious' hate was so strong that his only thought was to harm Vader as his apprentice carried him to his first death.  During the Imperial Era, Darth Sidious sought to gain access to the World between Worlds in order to control time as well as the universe. She also found an image crystal showing a still image of Sidious and several Imperial Guards, stormtroopers, and officials including Wullf Yularen, Dodd Rancit, Terrinald Screed, Grand Vizier Mas Amedda, and Gallius Rax. Vader killed Baylo, which upset Sidious, who wanted Baylo to suffer as the Navy becomes something he hated and watch as the Defiance was decommissioned and turned into "cafeteria trays."  Even the highest echelons of the First Order, however, remained unaware of Snoke's true origins and their ultimate purpose in the form of the Contingency, though some in the Order, such as Enric Pryde, came to suspect that Snoke was subservient to some greater power.  Snoke was Force-sensitive, weaker than his creator, and Sidious intended to use Snoke as part of his plans take revenge on the Skywalkers, halt the restoration of the Jedi Order, and decimate the Republic.
