Kylo Ren smashed his helmet in Star Wars: The Last Jedi after being taunted by Snoke as “a child in a mask.” But in The Rise of Skywalker, the murderous First Order Supreme Leader has that same mask reforged with red lines where the pieces were welded back together.
In The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary, it's confirmed that Kylo Ren's lightsaber contains a “cracked kyber crystal that is the cause of [the] ragged, unstable appearance” of the central blade and the two smaller blades that comprise the crossguard.
When Ben eventually turned, he also took some of Luke's former students with him as his own sort of "Jedi Crusaders," changed his name to Kylo Ren, and adopted a mask that's way closer to the design of Revans than Darth Vader, who most people assume served as inspiration for his dark side getup.
After witnessing the emergence of her powers, Ren offered to instruct her in the ways of the Force. Of course, Rey declined his invitation. Harnessing the power of the Force herself, she won the fight, landing a slashing blow to his face with Luke's lightsaber.
"Rey transferred her own Force energy to the wounded man at her feet; however, the interaction did more than merely mend a gaping wound. Burned flesh and damaged organs were made whole again, and even the scar on his face disappeared. For the first time in more than a decade, Ben Solo's mind cleared."
As Kylo Ren himself says in The Rise of Skywalker, he and Rey are bonded not just by their familial legacies (Ren as the grandson of Darth Vader and Rey as the granddaughter of Emperor Palpatine) but by their unique connection in the Force.
This plot detail is particularly relevant because Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary states that the helmet was "scavenged from a funeral pyre on Endor." Bazine does succeed in obtaining the case, having to defeat her mentor Delphi Kloda in the process.
However, the act of patricide only left Ren more conflicted than ever, and his master denounced him as a "child in mask," unworthy to follow in Vader's legacy. Angered by this rebuke from Snoke, Ren destroyed his helmet and redoubled his efforts to submit himself entirely to the power of the dark side.
This one is the black lightsaber, affectionately known as the “Darksaber.” Quite frankly, this lightsaber has been known to be the strongest overall. The Darksaber is similar to a black hole in the regular laws of universal physics. A black hole is so powerful that light cannot escape it.
And, as we all know, giving in to your emotions takes you to the dark side. That's why Kylo continuously hits his wound while fighting. This is to increase his pain, and by doing so, tap deeper into the power of the dark side. This helps him become even more powerful while fighting.
In their second lightsaber duel in Obi-Wan Kenobi “Part VI,” Ben Kenobi similarly cuts open Darth Vader's mask, revealing the scarred face of Anakin Skywalker who, as Darth Vader, claims responsibility for Skywalker's “death.” While the moment is a close recreation of Vader's duel with Ahsoka in Rebels, Kenobi notably ...
When Palpatine died, his consciousness was transferred to a clone on the planet Exegol, where he had been previously studying immortality. However, the body was too weak to hold his consciousness. So they built more clones that could be a strong vessel for him.
When asked who she is by the old woman on Tatooine, the former Palpatine declares herself Rey Skywalker, and she becomes a new part of the family. So, as far as the canon goes, yes, Rey is considered a Skywalker.
Vader's helmet was scavenged from his funeral pyre in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor. Thirty years after the funeral, the charred and melted helmet was in the possession of Vader's grandson, Kylo Ren.
Description. Darth Vader's armor functioned to keep its wearer alive, but it also served to inspire fear. Darth Vader's armor was made of obsidian; although its design inspired fear and symbolized the strength of the Galactic Empire, it was also critical to Vader's survival after his defeat on Mustafar.
Like the quarterstaff from which it originated, Rey's lightsaber hilt was blocky and heavy due to its exterior armor that made it resistant to impact and wear and tear. The weapon had a kyber crystal at its heart, and emitted a yellow-colored plasma blade when ignited.
In the Jedi Prince series of young-reader novels (1992–1993) by Paul and Hollace Davids, set about a year after Return of the Jedi, a three-eyed mutant named Triclops is revealed to be Palpatine's illegitimate son; he had a son named Ken, the titular "Jedi Prince".
