It is well-known that May 4th is "Star Wars Day", when the world takes a minute to appreciate one of the greatest franchises in the history of entertainment. However, much of world may still be learning that the party doesn't necessarily end on May 4th: the following day, May 5th (Cinco De Mayo!), has come to be known as "Revenge of the Fifth", which highlights the dark side villains of the franchise. And, since this day isn't quite the official Star Wars celebration that we're use to, fans get ot have a bit more fun with the concept - especially in 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic, when Star Wars fans have a lot of time (and boredom to kill) on their hands!
Check out below how fans are celebrating Star Wars "Revenge of the Fifth"!
The True MVPs
Yeah, the heroes of Star Wars are great - but what would the franchise be without its villains? Nothing! From Darth Vader and Darth Sidious, to animated hits like The Inquisitors and Ventress - respect the Fifth!
The Best Darkness
Rogue One has The Best Darth Vader Scene in all of Star Wars.May 5, 2020
Can't have "Revenge of the Fifth" without discussing what the best dark side moment is in the Star Wars franchise. Rogue One's final Vader sequence is definitely a top contender.

Hail the Chosen One!
Of course, props to the man around whom the entire Skywalker Saga revolves, champion of light and dark - Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader!

Of course, "Revenge of the Fifth" wouldn't have its name if not for the film that inspired it - Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Thanks to events of The Clone Wars final season, the tragic fall of Anakin and the Galactic Republic has just become even more powerful and tragic.
Hail The Prequels!
