* The SequelHook features a fleet of Rebel starships and fighters as Lando and Chewie set off to rescue Han. This is awesome on a couple of different levels: Plot-wise, it shows that the Rebels are not out of the fight, despite their defeat at Hoth. Special effects-wise, this is one of the largest fleet scenes we've seen in the franchise thus far, and certainly the largest collection of Rebel ships seen yet, showing that the Alliance has more than just transports and snub fighters.

** Remember how ''Film/ANewHope'' opens with a spaceship being chased down by an ''[[MileLongShip even bigger]]'' spaceship? The first true appearance of the Empire in this film is that big spaceship being eclipsed by an '''''even bigger''''' spaceship! Imagine seeing that when the film originally came out in 1980 and having your mind blown.

** Vader doesn't even acknowledge Ozzel at all, just rattling off his list of instructions to Piett. The urgency of his tone is ''all'' in stopping the Rebels here and now, nothing to do with the man he's murdering which, as noted in the Luke duel above, Vader's doing with no obvious motions or gestures. Even as he gasps his last, Ozzel is completely beneath Vader's notice.

* Weird version that crosses with NightmareFuel. When the Falcon escapes at the end of the film, the entire deck crew clearly thinks Vader is in the mood to kill someone. But he doesn't. Because the crew was simply and sincerely outmaneuvered. And, unlike the previous time with Needa, there isn't any potential argument that someone screwed up. Everything happened right in front of his own face. He knows everyone did their job brilliantly, and the Falcon managed to slip away at the last possible second. No one really failed, and all he can do is skulk off.

* Echo Base is falling, the Imperials are advancing almost unopposed, and the command center has been hit, but Leia is ''still'' there, calmly directing the defense to buy time for the evacuation. Han practically has to drag her out of there, and she still sticks around long enough to tell the crew there to send the final evacuation signal and to get to their transports.

* With a bit of discrete signalling on his wrist communicator, Lando is able to arrange for his security forces to ambush the Imperial personnel escorting him and Princess Leia, allowing for the heroes to escape Cloud City (except for Han, who is taken away moments before they can rescue him). While he wouldn't fully redeem himself until the start of ''Return of the Jedi'', Lando's cleverness prevents the whole batch of heroes from being captured or killed by Vader and Boba Fett.

* Han Solo after being tortured. When he finds out that this was all to lure Luke into a trap, he uses a bit of strength he has left to punch Lando before being restrained. Lando was in the middle of a HeelFaceTurn at the time, but the fact that Han's best friend putting his other best friend in danger being the last straw for him was pretty awesome.
