->'''Luke Skywalker:''' I know all about the dark side, Cade. More than ''you'' do. You wouldn't ''have'' to go tohere to heal, not if you were at peace with yourself. If you completed your training, if you had just accepted your [[TitleDrop legacy]]--\\
'''Cade Skywalker:''' Be a Skywalker?! That's turned out ''real'' well for our family, [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne hasn't it]]?!

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: In flashbacks, we see that Cade's [[PosthumousCharacter deceased]] father Kol Skywalker had red hair--just like Ben Skywalker and his mother Mara Jade.


Added DiffLines:

* TheKingdom: The newest incarnation of the Galactic Empire is--somewhat ironically--much more an example of this trope than it is of TheEmpire. It's still not democratic, and it's still ruled by a monarch, but said monarch is actually an intelligent, cultured man who genuinely cares about his people, tries to rule them with an even hand, and has no [[FantasticRacism prejudice towards non-humans]] (he allows women and aliens to serve as Stormtroopers, unlike his predecessors). Just to drive the point home, his private force of Jedi (the Imperial Knights) actually wear full suits of armor, just like the medieval knights of yore.

* DividedWeFall: In the backstory, the Galactic Alliance was made of this trope - worlds were breaking away to be neutral during the war, because of disagreements over the failure of the Ossus Project, and sabotage from the Sith.

* DividedWeFall: In the backstory, the Galactic Alliance was made of this trope - worlds were breaking away to be neutral during the war, because of disagreements over the failure of the Ossus Project, and sabotage from the Sith. In a more personal example, the schism between the Galactic Empire and the Jedi Order is also indicative of a rift in the Skywalker family; Cade Skywalker and Emperor Roan Fel are actually distant cousins (Cade is a direct descendant of Luke, Roan is a direct descendent of Leia), but they end up on opposite sides of the new Galactic Civil War.


Added DiffLines:

* FeudingFamilies: Though it's only made clear in the [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary materials]], the Fel family and the Skywalker family are actually two different branches of the Skywalker-Solo clan that split off and took two vastly different paths. It's implied that Roan Fel's grandmother Jaina Solo turned her back on the Jedi Order when she married Jagged Fel and decided to help him establish a new Galactic Empire, while her cousin Ben Skywalker stayed loyal to the legacy of the Old Republic. By the time of this series, they're on opposite sides of a new Galactic Civil War, and they're only willing to cooperate when [[EnemyMine they have the Sith as a common enemy]].

* ShoutOut: Plenty, but a notable example is the rich and varied vocabulary of [[PardonMyKlingon alien profanity]] peppering the dialogue of Cade and his foul-mouthed associates, which draws from sources including ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'', ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', and ''ThePiratesOfDarkWater''.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Good Imperials, a jerkass Skywalker who refuses to be the hero or the villain, and The Jedi are arguably better off without him.
** Better yet, despite StarWars having always been about "Light side vs Dark side", Legacy has MANY shades of Grey.
** {{Reconstruction}}: By the end, ''Legacy'' pretty much reconstructs StarWars after ''decades'' of {{Deconstruction}}. [[spoiler:Cade Skywalker rejects the DarkSide and becomes a better man, Krayt is overthrown and meets an ignominious end, and the Alliance, made up of genuine believers in the restoration of democratic government, score a magnificent final victory.]]
** DeconReconSwitch: The series pivots from {{Deconstruction}} to {{Reconstruction}} around the end of the ''Vector'' series.

** {{Reconstruction}}: By
Grey. The series pivots at the end, ''Vector'' sub-series, and by the end ''Legacy'' pretty much reconstructs StarWars ''Franchise/StarWars'' after ''decades'' of {{Deconstruction}}.
