Naming cannabis strains is a very subjective process where a breeder can choose whatever name they choose. So it should come as no surprise that strain names can get very creative. There are even strains named after beloved fictional characters such as those from your favourite movies and TV programs. So let’s take a look at some of the best fictional weed names on the market that are named after some of your favourite childhood heroes and villains.
Darth Vader Strain
When we are talking about weed strains named after Star Wars characters, the Darth Vader strain is always one of the first to be mentioned. The Darth Vader strain originates in 2006 and its other OG strain family and is named after the famous villain of the Star Wars universe.
The Indica-dominant hybrid mixes several strains, including Purple Kush, Skywalker OG, Afghani, OG Kush, and Larry OG. The resulting product has a 70:30 Indica to Sativa ratio and can reach THC levels of a whopping 25%.

In addition, users can expect a sweet and earthy aroma accompanied by a fresh herbal taste.
The Darth Vader marijuana strain has strong sedative and body-numbing effects, making it an excellent remedy for those suffering from chronic pain, inflammation, or muscle spasms. Because of its uplifting, mood-enhancing effects, Darth Vader is also used to treat psychological disorders such as depression, stress, and PTSD. The strain is also an excellent choice for treating insomnia and appetite loss in cancer treatment patients.
You can’t talk about Star Wars weed strains and not mention Skywalker. This strain shares the same name as the most famous hero in Star Wars, Luke Skywalker.
A well-balanced hybrid that was first grown under Dutch Passion’s care, the Skywalker marijuana strain has an even 50/50 ratio of Indica and Sativa. Its THC levels range from 15%-23%, accompanied by a negligible CBD level of an estimated 1%. This strain’s plants are short and bushy, with wide buds covered by a thick layer of trichomes.

Skywalker is a very aromatic plant that brings bodily stability and a focused mind high. Maybe the force be with you when you smoke this fantastic strain.
The Death Star is the massive Star Wars weapon that strikes fear throughout the Star Wars universe. This planet-busting weapon is likely why this potent strain shares its name.
The Death Star weed strain is a cross between Soul Diesel and Sensi Star, comprising 75% Indica and 25% Sativa. The THC level ranges from 18-27% and is powerful enough to induce sleep even in the most tolerant. The diesel aroma and taste also offer hints of citrus.

Starkiller is a popular character in the Star Wars universe, born as Galen Marek. They have a complex history within the Star Wars universe and played an essential role for both the Jedi and Sith.
Star Killer is a heavy-hitting, Indica dominant strain with an insanely high THC level of 26%. Because of its genetics, this strain brings on a more substantial body high than head high. This cross between Rare Dankness and Skywalker OG has big, bumpy, lively forest green nugs with thick, fiery orange hairs and a sparkling white, also known as Star Killer OG icy coat trichomes and saccharine gluey resin. The buds hold a pungent lemon pine aroma with a skinny, earthy pine taste and bitter lemon aftertaste.
Star Killer’s effects differ from many other strains with 70% Indica. An uplifting feeling of happiness can occur at the start, leading to a hazy feeling due to its intense effects. Then, you’ll finally feel the numbing body high and will quickly experience the sedative effects of this strain that’ll leave you in your bed or on the couch until you fall into a deep, deep sleep. These heavy-Indica impacts make this strain suitable for treating health conditions like sleeplessness, persistent pain, nightmares, PTSD, and chronic stress. The only thing Star Killer isn’t ideal for is morning use! Treat yourself to this strain to wind down after a long day, and melt into a restful slumber.
