Sheev Palpatine is the 5th character in the Finale Era, and the 36th character overall in Super Smash Bros Lawl. Palpatine is based off Darth Sidious as well as the character of the same name from the Star Wars franchise. He was the most voted character in the poll for what character to choose next, beating out both Pyron and Mephiles (and Fegelein), and even had an trailer directly parodying King K. Rool's announcement trailer from Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Entrance - Vaderide Edit
Carried on his chair by Anakin Skywalker and then jumps off as Anakin flies away.

UNLIMITED MEME POWER
Standard B - Stringing Pullin'Edit
It only works if the opponent gets the vision from the Side B. Pressing B will make Sheev enter in a immobile state and pressing B again will make him send the victim's vision of a better life to deal damage to the victim itself, but not the opponent. Pressing Side will make him say "Do It!" and paralyzes the opponent if they come close, leaving him to choose the victim's move for 2 seconds or else it will be cancelled. Pressing Down will make him fall to the ground and shout "I'm too weak!", which works like a counterattack to the victim for big damage and paralyze, but it dosen't work for the non-victim. It also works for grabs. Pressing Up will make him spawn two chairs and tell The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise to the opponent, and if does, the Portman vision will last for 2 stocks, but its very hard to land though to get it right.
Side B - Dark ConvertEdit
Sheev summons a vision of Natalie Portman suffering, then sends straight forward to his opponent. It can be send off in 5 different directions and lasts for 30 seconds.
Up B - Sheev Spin Edit
Sheev spin jumps with his lightsaber and swings it, dealing damage. Pressing A during the move will make a vision of young Anakin Skywalker appear and send him upwards, and pressing B will send a vision of General Grievous spinning his lightsabers to deal multiple hits.
Down B - Execute MemeEdit
Sheev gets on his robe and says "Execute Meme", where you get to choose one of the three characters you can summon:
Master Windu will follow Sheev no matter what, but he dosen't change direction though, in other words, he is a straight Green Koopa. Whoever gets hit by Windu will follow him for a few seconds. But if Sheev gets in front of him, he will swing his lightsaber to him and his opponent.
The projector fires a head of Chewbacca, which hatches into a Droid and a Wookie who shoots each other for 5 seconds. There's a bigger chance that the Droid will win, and if does, all the opponent who are in front of him will get a anvil remorse and hit. The droid has 20hp, so opponents can destroy it to prevent killing the Wookie. If the Chewbacca head hatches to the end of a ledge, Sheev will get the anvil remose instead, so be wisely.
A Lucrehulk-class LH-3210 cargo freighter will fire a laser beam that deals 6% damage and covers the middle range. If the opponent shields the beam, R2-D2 will appear and locks the opponent's ability to use the shield for a while.
Final Smash - UNLIMITED MEME POWEREdit
Sheev lifes huge lightning bolts from his hands. If connects, he will shout "UNLIMITED MEME POWER" and summons 2 visions of various meme characters and quotes (Obi-Wan's "Hello there" and Anakin's "I don't like sand" for example) to attack the opponents. After that, Sheev will fall on the ground, leaving him helpless.
Down Taunt - Looks towards the screen and says "I am... the Senate!" in a dark tone.
Side Taunt - Looks towards the screen and says "It's Treason, then." in an ominous tone.
Up Taunt - Looks towards the screen as his face reforms into his Darth Sidious face and says "Goooooood~" in a villainous tone before his face reforms back into his Sheev face.
Victory 1: Looks up at the sky and says, with an echo in the background, "The attempt on my life... has left me scarred... and deformed.".
Victory 2: Laughs with his hand over his mouth.
Victory 3: Laughs as he tries to get onto a senate seat, but stops as he has a hard time getting on the seat. It is noticeable that this is the only victory that takes place directly behind the losers.
Loss: Falls backwards out of his chair and onto the ground.

Colonel: What happened Snake?
Snake: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise?
Colonel: Ha! You know your prequel memes, eh Snake? Then you must know about Sheev Palpatine.
Snake: Yeah I know, but not about his moveset...
Colonel: Oh, right. He commands three powerful memes: a sith lord?, the droid attack on the wookies, and the blockade guy.
Snake: Blockade guy... what happened to High Ground?
Colonel: Those memes will try to strip you of your free will, and replace it with their sequence. But I'd worry more about the dark side if I were you... Watch out for Natalie Portman's face! If it hits you, Sheev himself is having your free will.
Snake: But the poor woman, looks like she's suffering. Maybe I can save her...
Colonel: Just make sure you avoid the face Snake!
Daily Bugle ShenaniganEdit
Jameson: Crazy senator turns himself into some kind of a monster, makes a space republic into an empire... You didn't fly into space right Parker?
Parker: Oh, oh well, uh-
Jameson: We don't have pictures?
Parker: But, there was a disturbance...
Jameson: Well, don't worry. I understand just how difficult space travel is. Don't stress yourself thinking about it, I'm serious.
*Picture suddenly flies down, both startled*
Jameson: Who threw this?
*Character in a hood flies down, talks fast with a dark whisper*
???: Jar jar is the key to all of this
Jameson: Hey geezer, you want a job?
*Flies down and reveals himself as George Lucas*
Lucas: Eh, yeah!
Jameson: Parker, hello? You're fired!
Jameson: Who wants to make 60 dollars? Cash!
