The emperor could do the lightning hands thing and some other stuff. Vader was constantly talking about "the power of the dark side" but didn't really seem to have anything to show for it.

This was largely a limitation of the OT and the VFX of the time; in the scripting he was described as extraordinarily powerful and feared (and the beta canon goes nuts with this and arguably over-powers Vader like all good beta canon). The best representation we've gotten on screen of Vader's abilities is the end scene in Rogue One:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxL8bVJhXCM

For an example of how Vader *should* have been depicted in the OT, see:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to2SMng4u1k

It's likely we're going to get more of this in the upcoming Obi Wan series.

Didn't realize there's an obi wan series in the works. That could be really cool. The depiction in the OT is basically palpatine's less powerful henchman with powers akin to an elite jedi. Would definitely like to see some time spent to Vader as a ruthless and powerful villain.

TBF, the emperor we see in the original trilogy is a presumably inferior clone of the emperor who resides on Exegol. and possibly he wasn't involved much in the corruption of vader and the attempted one of luke. we know more certainly he was involved in the creation of snoke to give orders to Hux and Allegiant General Pryde. Of course in hindsight the emperor should've been trying to get the Wayfinder from Pasaana first, unless he wanted Rey to find it since she's his granddaughter and he was presumably watching her from the start.

This was a VFX limitation but also justified by where we are in the story. At the start of the OT the Emperor had already won, very few Jedi were left, and there wasn't much of a resistance. Vader at his most badass is the time period we barely see, in the immediate aftermath of Order 66. I'd say they should just do a series where Vader murders everyone, VFX are so good these days you could do a great job with it even on a TV budget but Disney presumably wouldn't do an "evil triumphs for 30 years lol" story so....

Actually an interesting tidbit hearing that he was written very different in the scripts but they couldn’t realistically put that vision on screen in 1977.

Fair point.

On further reflection, I'll say the most impressive dark side thing he did was survive being roasted alive

It's implied that dark side hate, anger, etc can enable one to survive getting majorly fucked up, like Darth Maul getting chopped in half and falling down a pit and not dying

In Jedi Fallen Order, Vader confronts Cal Kestis at Cal’s power peak. Vader is invulnerable and single handedly tears apart an undersea station (and then survives its total collapse) in pursuit of Cal. Vader is so powerful that the game just makes you run away because even an accomplished Jedi has no chance against him.

That said, Jedi could presumably choke bitches out or shoot lightning out of their dicks, but those powers are driven by negative emotions and therefore the dark side, so they are corrupting.
