162Oathkeeper » After the end, a demon looks back to simpler times. Before he was wrapped up in a profession of violence and death, he saved lives and united the disenfranchised. Before his world-changing assaults, he was just a boy who grew up in Konoha's slums. Before he lost his name to history, known only as the Ghost, he was Naruto. (Disregards canon and the timeline. You've been warned.)

Of Insanity and Genius set in the original Mystery Dungeon games, after returning to Pokemon Square and before going to fight Rayquaza; Whiscash tells the hero a story about a man whose strength was unrivaled, and of the brother he barely knew. He was a cruel man, an unforgiving man, to whom strength was the law and defeat was unthinkable. It's the story of the hero, in his violently human past.

4 Violence Fetish » When the world is screwed up, its people tend to get a little defunct as well. See the differences that arise when one Uzumaki Naruto is called to war by an urge he can't deny, and understand that the child of destiny can just as easily destroy as save.

2 Vader Playlist I was bored, so I looked at my ipod and tried to figure out an effective playlist that would show off Darth Vader's two largest facets: his rage (cemented by such pieces as Acrania's "A Trophy of Corporate Disfigurement" and Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff") and his grief. (examples being Metallica's "The Unforgiven," as well as Halestorm's "Break In") ...it was kind of fun to do.

4 Ghost It isn't just the Jedi who are able to manifest themselves, after death, into reality. Perhaps Darth Vader's rise from the Dark Side wasn't Luke's doing at all, or at least in whole; after all, love-even that which is felt for a ghost of a person from a painful past-is a powerful motivator to end the destruction that began with that same source...and he loves her.

2 War There has only ever been one thing that Darth Vader was good at: ending lives. It should come as no surprise, then, that his life was filled with nothing but destruction and carnage...until the end, that is. The final moments of his life were shockingly peaceful. (Oneshot, post-ROTJ)

1 Pain For all his strength and his power, for his destiny, there is a price. It is heavy, it is dark, and it is eternal. A day will not go by where he doesn't feel his curse, but maybe there is some form of redemption in the mindless self-destruction which he constantly indulges in...and so he feels pain. Accepts pain. Contemplates pain. Knows pain. (Oneshot)
