Character Spotlight: Dark Helmet

Lord Dark Helmet is the evil leader of the spaceship Spaceball One. Along with confidant Colonel Sandurz and President Skroob, the President of Planet Spaceball, Helmet has sinister plans in mind for the inhabitants of Planet Drudia. All three plan to kidnap the Princess of Drudia so they can make the King Roland give them the combination to the air shield so they can take all the air for their planet Spaceball. A caricature of Star Wars' Darth Vader, Helmet is played by Rick Moranis in the hilarious 1987 Mel Brooks Sci-Fi spoof Spaceballs.
