Arthas is Darth Vader

Postby Ranwulf » Thu Nov 27, 2008 5:58 pm

Ok, I really not sure if this is the best place to put this. But because here is General then here it goes.

The Lich King Lore is incredibly similar to Darth Vader lore. Here some reasons:

Both start on the GOOD side of the Force/Light.
Then BOTH turn to the EVIL side of the Force/Light (In this case, Shadow or Undead power)
BOTH Killed their former masters.(Obi Wan Kenobi and Uther)
BOTH fight with Swords.(Lightsaber and Frostmourne)
BOTH see their former masters(before turn to evil) as father like figures.
BOTH war black armor.
BOTH control an army.(Darth Vader the Empire and Arthas the Scourge).
BOTH have the other former master student as an enemy(Luke Skywalker and Tirion Fordring->Ok, not sure as Student, but they was very close.)
BOTH have a really weird voice =O
BOTH killed their boss other servant(Count Dooku and Mal'ganis)
BOTH were very famous and well regarded before turn to the EVIL side.
BOTH have relationship with other VERY important woman in the lore(Amidala and Jaina)
BOTH put as their last part before becoming the creature their are were their HELMET(seriously.Go on youtube and you will see it)
BOTH can pull things with their mind/force/spell
BOTH KILLED MOST OF THEIR FORMER ORDER(The Jedi Order and the Order of the Silver Hand)
BOTH have a OPERA MUSIC singing during the time they first wear their whole armor(with the helmet).
BOTH have before becoming Darth VAder/Lich King names that started with "A"(Anakin/Arthas)
BOTH are the MOST importants of their EVIL orders

As you can see, their are VERY SIMILAR and THEIR ARE BOTH EVIL!What this happened? Well, people at Blizz are very fond to Star Wars(look for Draenei Starting area...) could be that.

What else do you think that make they even more similar?

The Lunch king lore may have been modeled straight from Star Wars, But his armour, sword and helm have been lifted directly from
Lord of the rings - Sauron.
Ellifain @ Khaz'Goroth does not approve of torture, save where there's experience/rep/loot involved.

Kind of dude, but seriously A LOT in common in Lore, and maybe in Visual with Sauron, cause they are not going in anyway make their SUPREME villain use Lightsabers or Tech armor in a Medieval Fantasy Game O.o

you'll always see what you want to see.

I'm sure we could provide a list of reasons why Arthas is like a burrito too.

It's simply the hero's journey story archetype.

I don't know man... I appreciate your effort, but I don't see it. I think Sauron was a much bigger inspiration for them, and yea. If you research some Tolkien lore, you'll find that most of what you listed is also shared there. Including the character being on the good side good prior to turning evil.
