Palpatine will keep trying to use Force Lightning throughout the fight - LEGO Skywalker Saga: Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) - boss, how to beat? - Bosses - LEGO Skywalker Saga Guide

Palpatine will keep trying to use Force Lightning throughout the fight. During the fight you must:

  1. Avoid the red circles on the ground (example in picture 1) - they show where the boss' lightning will strike after he charges it up. Minor enemies will be a nuisance, so try to get rid of them when they get close enough.
  2. Avoid the rotating lightning (example in picture 2) - double jump over the lightning bolts and wait for the attack to stop. If you're feeling risky you can block the lightning and reflect it, which completes the Return to Senator challenge.

Darth Sidious has to recover for a while after using the lightning spin. Take advantage of it and attack him while he's winded.

A more conventional phase of the fight will start, during which you must evade his powerful attacks signaled with red lines and circles.

After draining his first health bar out of four Sidious will pull you closer - struggle against him using the Force - LEGO Skywalker Saga: Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) - boss, how to beat? - Bosses - LEGO Skywalker Saga Guide

After draining his first health bar out of four Sidious will pull you closer - struggle against him using the Force. As usual, you must quickly mash the buttons displayed on the screen.

Phase two - flying platforms

During phase two the arena will change - LEGO Skywalker Saga: Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) - boss, how to beat? - Bosses - LEGO Skywalker Saga Guide

During phase two the arena will change. Start by jumping onto the adjacent platform where Sidious is. You can start attacking him right away. Keep dodging his attacks but be careful - the platform is small and it's easy to fall off.

After losing his second health bar Sidious will flee to a different, distant platform - LEGO Skywalker Saga: Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) - boss, how to beat? - Bosses - LEGO Skywalker Saga Guide

After losing his second health bar Sidious will flee to a different, distant platform. There are two paths you can take to reach him, left and right, both having soldiers on them. It doesn't matter which path you choose, you'll have to do the same thing either way. Defeat the boss' troops, build a button, stand on it as Yoda and ask Typho to interact with the console (symbol mini-game).

You can now reach the platform Palpatine is on and fight him again (remember about dodging) - LEGO Skywalker Saga: Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) - boss, how to beat? - Bosses - LEGO Skywalker Saga Guide

You can now reach the platform Palpatine is on and fight him again (remember about dodging). Eliminate the remaining soldiers and drain Sidious' final health bar.

Depleting all of the boss' HP does not end the fight. The Emperor will call in reinforcements - fight against the soldiers landing on your platform.

Eventually he'll pull you into yet another QTE, identical to the previous one - rhytmically press the displayed button to struggle against Sidious and finish the fight - LEGO Skywalker Saga: Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) - boss, how to beat? - Bosses - LEGO Skywalker Saga Guide
