How Did Anakin Get His Scar? Answered and Explained

Star Wars' Anakin Skywalker Scar

Anakin Skywalker goes through a lot throughout Episodes I to VI. He loses several limbs, a wife, and an entire way of life when he falls to the Dark Side – but even before then, he receives a mysterious scar on the side of his face.

Later on, this scar is used visually in both animated and live-action films to highlight Anakin’s inner conflict, with the scarred side of his face often highlighted in red light to show his temptation to the Dark Side of the Force. However, for such a noticeable mark, how he got it is never actually addressed in the core live-action titles.
