Who Killed Darth Vader? Fully Explained: How Did Darth Vader Die?

Darth Vader's death is one of the most memorable scenes in Star Wars, but what led to the iconic villain's demise? Anakin Skywalker's story began with the death of Qui-Gon Jinn in the first movie, an event that left a deep and lasting impact on him. As Anakin grew older, he became increasingly obsessed with the idea of preventing death, and had visions of his beloved Padmé dying. 
Taking advantage of this fear, Emperor Palpatine convinced Anakin to turn to the dark side, becoming Darth Vader. Together they ruled the Galactic Empire for many years, while Vader's two children lived in hiding. Vader ended up in direct conflict with them when his kids became important figures in the Rebellion. When it came down to a choice of killing his son Luke or sacrificing himself, Darth Vader chose to save his son by using the last of his power to kill Emperor Palpatine. He died in Luke's arms, redeemed from the dark side of the Force. So, how did Darth Vader die? Who was responsible for that?

After the shocking revelation of Luke being Anakin’s son, much like Luke, we too saw a glimmer of light being peaked through that heavy black suit of terror. It was only a matter of time until Darth Vader turned back to the Light Side because of the connection with his children.And that’s exactly what he did. In Return of the Jedi, when the Emperor tried to get Luke to kill his father to take his place and Luke refused, Palpatine started to use his force lightning on Luke, torturing him. Unable to see his son get killed, Vader steps in and throws Palpatine down the reactor shaft, to his apparent death.

While this is happening though, Darth Vader gets fatally electrocuted. Luke, at his father’s request, takes off his helmet so he can look at his son one last time, with his real face.
In his last final moments and with the courageous act of saving his son and turning on his former master, Vader turns back to the Light Side and dies as Anakin Skywalker. He then becomes a Force ghost, which you would then see at the end of the movie with his former friend Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Say what you will about Luke’s whining, the power he wielded in Return of the Jedi was no match for Darth Vader. Having faced his father once before, Luke was familiar with his tactics and used the force to gain an upper-hand. In Star Wars Canon, only Luke Skywalker can be acknowledged as the one who truly defeated Darth Vader.
The funny part, however, is Darth Vader let him win... but only after determining he was going to lose. Luke Skywalker is the only one who could have made those events take place, which is why he’s rightfully considered a legend throughout the galaxy. As he aged, and learned, Luke's power only grew.
