15 Emperor Palpatine Fan Theories That Make Him Far More Insidious Than Before

One of the best things about the Internet is that anyone can put out a theory about anything much like these fan theories about Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious, the evilest characters in the Star Wars universe. While most of the time this results in some sort of crackpot diatribe nobody can understand other than the person who posts something on sites like Reddit, there are occasions where a theory about something in popular culture actually makes a good amount of sense.

Theories like the narrator at the beginning of Alladin being the Genie in disguise were floated around the Internet for years before Disney finally confirmed it to be true. The theories out there that haven't been confirmed are many, like these Palpatine fan theories, but that doesn't mean they don't have some element of probability in them.

Theories about Emperor Palpatine have been kicked around online since he first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, and there are more than a few containing some element of plausibility.

Of all the fan theories about Palpatine found online, these 15 are the ones that may, in fact, contain a nugget of truth, so find the ones you consider to be the most plausible and vote them up to see which one rises to the top!
