Best Star Wars Memes

1. Who is this “Dark” Vader you speak of?

On one side, you’ve got the die-hard Star Wars aficionado—the type who can recite every line from The Empire Strikes Back, knows the difference between a TIE fighter and a TIE interceptor, and considers midichlorians a hot topic at parties. On the other hand, you’ve got the casual fan who says “Dark Vader” instead of Darth Vader. Classic rookie mistake… almost as bad as people who call Chewbacca a bear. But hey, everyone starts somewhere!

2. Even Jedi have to keep their contacts updated

In the Star Wars saga, Anakin’s fall to the dark side and his renaming as “Darth Vader” by Emperor Palpatine is a pretty serious and dramatic turning point. It’s bad enough that Obi-Wan had to witness Anakin’s betrayal during Order 66. Imagine a Star Wars universe with smartphones, where he’d have to update his Padawan’s contact card now that he’s, well, a Sith Lord. That’s gotta be worse than renaming your ex’s contact name to “Don’t Pick Up.”

3. Well, that certainly explains the movie order


When Star Wars: A New Hope first hit theaters in 1977, it was designated as Episode IV. This was followed by The Empire Strikes Back (Episode V) in 1980, and Return of the Jedi (Episode VI) in 1983. It wasn’t until the late 1990s and early 2000s that the prequel trilogy—Episodes I, II, and III—was released, starting with The Phantom Menace in 1999. It would make perfect sense that Yoda, our wise and backwards speaking Jedi Master, was the mastermind behind this release order! Duh!

4. The Force is strong with this one

Be honest: how many times have you waved your hand at an automatic door, pretending to use the Force to open it just like a Jedi? Same, same. This scene with Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi is all of us, even if just for a moment.

5. Talk about Rebel Scum


As we all know, this meme taps into the dramatic revelation in The Empire Strikes Back where Darth Vader learns that the rebel who destroyed the Death Star is none other than Luke Skywalker, his son. Who knew there was some overlap with Alan Clark’s 1979 grim British prison flick, Scum, and a galaxy far, far away!

6. Definitely getting a second date after that

We all know this iconic monologue from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. In this scene, Emperor Palpatine, then known as Chancellor Palpatine, tells Anakin Skywalker about the Sith legend of Darth Plagueis, a powerful Sith Lord who could supposedly cheat death. It’s a major moment, marking the beginning of Anakin’s seduction to the dark side. Forget about the small talk on your date—impress them with this Star Wars lore instead.

7. Credits will do just fine


We all knew those fight scenes from Revenge of the Sith were highly choreographed—but who knew they were good enough for the strip club? Here we see Anakin in a setting that is decidedly not the same as his Mustafar duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Maybe it was less about his Sith ambitions and more about funding a side gig, after all.

8. Time to use the Force to make it turn green

This meme shows Qui-Gon Jinn, the Jedi Master from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, surrounded by the red glowing orbs of the planet Coruscant’s Senate building. In this scene, he’s sitting cross-legged and meditating. May we all take a hint and channel our inner Jedi to maintain our composure, even in the face of rush hour traffic.

9. Even with CAPTCHA, Obi-Wan has the high ground

Despite his skill and potential, we all know Anakin was never really considered a Jedi Master. This was crucial plot point in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, where Anakin was denied the rank of Jedi Master by the Jedi Council, ultimately contributing to his eventual turn to the dark side. Even CAPTCHA seems to know this, with Obi-Wan getting thrown in the mix as the true Jedi Master. But as with all of these bot tests, some of us might still get tripped up!

10. This is awkward

After their climactic duel in Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi leaves Anakin Skywalker severely injured (obviously, we learn he survived the battle after all). Padme Amidala, who was deeply in love with Anakin and unaware of his transformation into Darth Vader, later asks Obi-Wan Kenobi about Anakin’s fate. He’s all right, sure—as long as that means burning to a crisp on the volcanic slopes of Mustafar.

11. The resemblance is uncanny

In Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, Jabba’s patience with Han Solo over an unpaid debt has run thin, so he puts a bounty on his head and eventually freezes him in carbonite once he’s captured. If Han was to see this purse, you already know he would be beelining in the opposite direction… lest it start asking him why he fried poor Greedo.

12. Guilty as charged

We all remember this scene from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, when an older Obi-Wan Kenobi, played by Sir Alec Guinness, reveals his true identity to Luke Skywalker. The exchange happens after R2-D2 plays Princess Leia’s holographic message for Obi-Wan, where she refers to him as “General Kenobi.” Luke, unaware of Obi-Wan’s history, asks if he knows the General Kenobi that Leia mentioned. Obi-Wan responds with a smile and the line, “Well, of course I know him, he’s me.” Turns out, this quote has plenty of real world applications—and being the guilty party of a Star Wars shopping spree happens to be one of them.

13. Now all you need is a light saber

Take it from Emperor Palpatine, sometimes you just gotta “let the hate flow through you.” This famous quote is from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. It’s part of a pivotal scene where Palpatine, the dark and manipulative Sith Lord, is attempting to turn Luke Skywalker to the dark side of the Force.

During this scene, Palpatine is encouraging Luke to give in to his anger and hatred, knowing that these negative emotions are the path to the dark side. As Luke’s conflict with Darth Vader intensifies, Palpatine urges him to let his hate take over, which would ultimately lead to his fall from the Light Side and his transformation into a Sith. Obviously, we’re not recommending becoming so evil that you’d wipe out an entire empire—but we’re also not not recommending some “aggressive feelings” from time to time.

14. My mind, you must change

Remember Yoda’s famous quote? In Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, the Jedi Master imparts his words of wisdom to Luke Skywalker, who has traveled to the planet Dagobah be trained to become a Jedi himself. Yoda asks Luke to use the Force to lift his X-wing starfighter from a swamp where it has sunk. Luke, doubting he can accomplish such a seemingly impossible task, says he’ll try to do it. This is where Yoda delivers his iconic line: “Do or do not, there is no try.”

The message is clear—commitment, confidence, and belief in one’s abilities are fundamental to mastering the Force. We’re pretty sure there’s no changing Yoda’s mind on this one!

15. New whip just dropped


The Sandcrawler is a large, mobile vehicle used by the Jawas, primarily seen in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. These massive, tank-like vehicles are used by the Jawas to traverse the deserts of Tatooine as they search for scrap metal and droids to salvage and sell. If Elon Musk is looking for design inspiration for the next Tesla release, this is a great place to start.

16. I have a bad feeling about this

As fans know, the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) set the groundwork for the prequels (Episodes I-III), which means that characters who don’t appear in the original trilogy could be written off by various means—usually by death or other, uh, tragic events. Apparently, even heartbreak. RIP Padmé.

17. Aren’t you a little short for a Stormtrooper?


But really, what kind of world would Star Wars be if Imperial Stormtroopers were… metric? That’s some good ol’ measurement unit humor for you.

18. Speaking of height…

We all remember the “I have the high ground” quote from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. It is spoken by Obi-Wan Kenobi during his lightsaber duel with Anakin Skywalker on Mustafar. As the duel reaches its climax, Obi-Wan and Anakin find themselves on a sloped surface near a river of lava. Obi-Wan leaps to a higher vantage point, gaining a clear advantage over Anakin, who is in a lower position. At that moment, Obi-Wan warns Anakin not to continue the fight, saying, “It’s over, Anakin. I have the high ground.”

Unfortunately, you know what happens next: Anakin’s pride led him to ignore Obi-Wan’s warning and Obi-Wan strikes him mid-air, severing his limbs and leaving him to die in the burning lava. While we can’t say a relationship with a Short King would end in the same tragedy, at least you’ll always have the high ground on your side!

19. That’s one way to set the mood

You’ve heard the “Imperial March.” Also known as “Darth Vader’s Theme,” it’s one of the most recognizable pieces of music associated with the series and is often used to represent the incoming of the Galactic Empire, especially Darth Vader. The track first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, and now, you can share it on your dating playlists, too. Talk about a catch.

20. What’s in a name?

Personally, we’re a fan of X-Wing, but Naboo also goes pretty hard at elementary school roll call.

21. Taking the road by storm

But it will get hit by everything in its sight, and we’re also not making any promises about its ability to stay on the road itself…

22. Lone survivor…


As part of the Order 66 directive by Emperor Palpatine, Anakin Skywalker, newly named Darth Vader, was tasked with eliminating the Jedi within the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. This included the younglings—young Jedi initiates who were training to become Padawans. In one of the Revenge of the Sith’s most chilling scenes, a group of younglings seek refuge from the chaos and look to Anakin for guidance and protection.

However, Anakin, now fully turned to the dark side, ignites his lightsaber. The scene cuts away, but it’s clear from context and later references that he killed them. Except… this one kid who was in the bathroom the whole time, apparently. As one commenter wrote, “These jokes will never get old… just like the younglings.” Dark, we know.

23. Gotta save space for the things that really matter


Some might argue that Rose could’ve made some space and knocked that sequel trilogy into the water, but we’ll let you be the judge of that…

24. He fumbled the bag


We all know it’s Anakin’s fault for losing Padme. I mean, she literally dies of a broken heart after his turn to the Dark Side. While it’s not the best justification to become a Sith Lord, I guess everyone has their reasons!

25. Sleepiness is strong with this one


This adorable Yoda scene takes place in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back toward the end of the film, after Luke has received extensive training from Yoda. Yoda, burdened by the weight of guiding a new generation of Jedi, closes his eyes to take a nap—and honestly, we couldn’t relate more.

26. It’s tough out there


Anakin was denied the rank of Jedi Master despite being given a seat on the Jedi Council by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine in Revenge of the Sith. His emotional volatility, attachments, and disregard for Jedi teachings concerned the Council, as did his his increasing closeness to Chancellor Palpatine. Suffice to say: Anakin had some red flags, and anyone could notice it. It’s hard out there for a rejected Jedi.

27. We didn’t say it was a good thing


At least there’s always the option of joining the Dark Side, am I right?

28. Deal or no deal


In Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader made a deal with Lando Calrissian, the administrator of Cloud City, to betray Han Solo and his friends in exchange for not disrupting Cloud City’s operations. However, Vader ultimately changes the terms of the deal—unsurprising for an evil Sith Lord. Lando has no choice but to comply, just like us Star Wars fans, as we deal with plot holes and changing storylines throughout the years.

29. It’s just semantics


Obi-Wan Kenobi served as a General during the Clone Wars, as depicted in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and in the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. During this time, Jedi Knights and Jedi Masters were given military titles and responsibilities to lead the Grand Army of the Republic against the Separatist forces. As a General, Obi-Wan commanded clone troopers in battle and was involved in significant military operations across the galaxy. But if we’re really being specific…well, see the meme above.

30. It was an inside job

And you’re telling me the one who had the plans to the Death Star also happened to be Darth Vader’s daughter? These guys may be onto something…
