Animated Escapades

Sidious rallies his warriors - Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress, and General Grievous - to help him make his stand in the universe. When the animated universe becomes less profitable for the expansion of his empire, Palpatine uses a portal left over from the dimension-hopping chaos of the war to warp him, Dooku, and Grievous into the live-action world. 

The Galactic Senate

Palpatine, along with a new partner, Scorpius, form an alliance of space commanders to facilitate the takeover of the live-action realm. All the while, Palpatine has his Separatist council, a completely different faction from the alliance of space, set up a new base of operations, though General Grievous is needed to clean out the planet of a dangerous Predator. In the alliance of space, Palpatine authorizes the destruction of the Daleks and the institution of Anubis as the leader of the Goa'uld, expanding some tensions between him and Scorpius.

Hiring Seerlena

In a plot to take down the leader of the Galactic Empire, the dark wizard Rasputin resurrected the demonic hellhound Sammael using the tears of angels. Catching wind of Rasputin's plans, Emperor Palpatine and his protege, Anakin Skywalker, made a deal with the alien criminal Serleena, as she gave them a killer alien known as the Xenomorph. The alien was sent out to meet Sammael, confronting the demon of desolation as he was feeding. The two beasts fought in a vicious brawl. Ultimately, the much larger Xenomorph emerged victorious, tearing Sammael apart.

Vs Rasputin

While the two monsters were fighting, Rasputin and his associate, Lord Blackwood, traveled to Coruscant, where they confronted Palpatine. Unintimidated, the emperor drew his lightsaber, while Blackwood produced a magic sword of his own. The two clashed blades, but the younger Blackwood out-fenced Palpatine and backed him into a corner. Blackwood then departed, leaving Rasputin to finish the job. However, just then, Anakin arrived on the scene, but was shocked to see his old friend Rasputin there, as it turned out that Rasputin had protected Anakin when he was a child. Palpatine unleashed force lightning on Rasputin, but the wizard used his magic gauntlet to deflect the lightning back on Palpatine. Severely wounded and disfigured, Palpatine begged the conflicted Anakin for help. Ultimately, Anakin chose his new mentor over his old friend, stabbing Rasputin with his lightsaber. With his foe distracted, Palpatine unleashed force lightning on Rasputin once again, completely obliterating him.


ViBack on Coruscant, Emperor Palpatine gathered his allies, including Count Dooku, General Grievous, Darth Maul, and Anakin, now known as 'Darth Vader'. Together, they planned for the uprising of the Sith.deo Game Villains War
