Anakin/Dathvader is the most powerful sith of them all said the phrothecy so he could kill the emperour easily the resons he dint:

Episode 3, he dint want to be by himself plus he needed palpetine to get the galactic empire organized

Episode 4, He wants Luke with him to defeat the emperor father and son.

Episode 5, same as 4 but he wants luke to become a Darksider

Episode 6, He relizes the true meaning of the Darkside and that luke would never join him so he decides to kill the emperor to help his son and to put a end to the Darkside.

You see, they're two completely different characters. Prequel Anakin was a friggin' idiot that totally undermined the character of Darth Vader, IMHO.

Yet another reason why I despise the prequels with every fiber of my being.
Same here.

Vader WAS 'The Chosen One' but he got owned by obi-wan! The suit was the only thing stopping him from killing palpy... imagine if vader DIDN'T have the suit.

ARGH i have been reading this thread and find it an insult to fandom to use Videos games as evidence to support an opinion in a discussion of G canon.

From ESB:
Quote:
VADER: Luke. You can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and we can rule the galaxy as father and son.
Come with me. It's the only way.
Vader wanted Luke to join him in defeating the Emperor because Vader knew the Emperor was too powerful for him. Then after the Emperor's Deafeat they could rule the Empire.

Luke wanted to save Vader/Anakin, and in doing so they could defeat the Emporer, and bring peace and the Old republic back to the Galaxy. Tho Luke probably wanted to just save his dad and that was enough.

The Emperor on the other hand knew Luke was a threat. That is why he pitted Vader and Luke against each other. Luke could only win, by using the Dark side. And Luke Almost DID win, and succumb by a merest fraction. He only missed the Coup de Grace on Vader.

If Luke did the Coup de Grace The Emporer would have a new more likely more powerful apprentice. Otherwise, Vader would have won, and there would be one more less threat.

Vader more then likely could have ruled as a Tyrant in the Emperor's place. The only problem would be that Vader wouldn't have the Far-sighted vision that the Emporer had. I doubt Vader would have come up with the idea to lure the Rebels into a Trap with the Second Death star. Instead vader would likely Base-Delta-Zero any perceived uprising or rebel sympathizers.

If there are suppose to be troopers or royal guards defending the Emporer. How the heck was Luke able to drag Anakin's body to the shuttle without having to confront them? In the time it took Lando and wedge to travel to the Reactor core: Luke had to take the Turbolift down to the Death star surface, travel how ever many MILES to the Equatorial Trench (most likely an Express Turbolift for the Emporer's personal use) have an emotional Father sun talk and launch the shuttle.

But I started thinking.. do you think Anakin would have actually been more powerful than the emperor if he never wound up on the low ground against Kenobi and became stumpy the burnt toast sith? If left to develop into a sith apprentice unimpeded by his disability or handicap that Obi left him with... Do you think Vader indeed could have been the emperor?

Before his duel with Obi Wan.. Anakin was speaking of ruling his empire with Padme at his side... So Anakin definitely had ambitions for it. Did Obi take some steam out of his step... and Vader was content at being the Emperor's gopher?
I think, without a doubt, Anakin would've become more powerful than the Emperor had he not being maimed by Obi-Wan and been left to burn to a crisp on Mustafar. Anakin had the potential to become one of the most powerful force users the galaxy had ever seen but it wasn't realized and thanks to Obi-Wan he wound up in the suit, being the Emperor's lackey. If Anakin had defeated Obi-Wan during the Battle Of the Heroes, I have no doubt, that he would've overthrown the Emperor, eventually.

I always got the impression that he was going to over throw the emporer in due time. He was just waiting for the right moment to strike.

that seem's pretty acurate beside's the fact that anakin would have built his own lightsaber
