Who kills Kylo Ren?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

Well, let me start by saying that I’m a huge Star Wars fan, so this question hits close to home for me. As much as I adore Kylo Ren as a character, it’s true that he ultimately meets his end in a rather tragic way.

In the film “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” Kylo Ren, also known as Ben Solo, undergoes a significant character arc. After years of being torn between the light and dark sides of the Force, he finally decides to redeem himself and embrace his true identity as Ben Solo.

However, before this redemption can fully take place, Kylo Ren commits some terrible acts. One of the most shocking and heartbreaking moments is when he kills his own father, Han Solo, in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This patricide deeply impacts Kylo Ren and further fuels his inner conflict.

Fast forward to “The Rise of Skywalker,” and we see Kylo Ren still struggling with his choices. Throughout the film, he battles with Rey, the film’s main protagonist, who represents the light side of the Force. Eventually, Kylo Ren realizes that his path lies in redemption and decides to join forces with Rey to defeat the ultimate evil, Emperor Palpatine.

During the climactic battle, Kylo Ren confronts the Emperor and sacrifices himself to save Rey. In a moment of selflessness, he uses his Force powers to heal Rey after she has been struck down by the Emperor. This act drains his life force and ultimately leads to his own demise.

It’s a tragic end for Kylo Ren, but his sacrifice is a poignant moment that showcases his growth as a character. Despite the unspeakable acts he committed, he finds redemption in the end and chooses to save the person he loves.

Kylo Ren kills himself in a way by sacrificing his own life to save Rey. It’s a bittersweet end for a complex and conflicted character, but it serves as a powerful conclusion to his story arc.
