* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: [[AllThereInTheManual Chapter 18 of the movie novelization]] explained that by "200,000 units," Lama Su meant 200,000 units of production, as in 200,000 ''clones'', not 200,000 ''military units''. That's roughly one trooper for every five planets in the Republic. Many different attempts to explain this discrepancy were attempted, all of which were relegated to non-canon status with the old EU became Legends. The canon information from Star Wars: Complete Locations indicates that there were millions of clone divisions in training at the outbreak of the war, despite what the novelization says.

That's roughly one trooper for every five planets in the Republic. EU writers who ''did'' have a sense of scale had to do some serious gymnastics to make that even remotely sensible, eventually settling on most of the fighting on the Republic side being done by local militias and the clones being reserved for strategically important battles.

* FailedASpotCheck: In an often ignored scene right after Dooku's escape, Padme rushes to Anakin and kisses him ''while the clone troopers, Yoda and Obi-Wan are all watching''. Apparently, everyone suffers short-term amnesia because that's never brought up.
** Except she doesn't kiss him. She hugs him. Which, considering Ani's ''lost an arm'', could probably be written off by anyone watching as her comforting him. Really, a better example would be to question exactly how Obi-Wan managed to not see the pair of them kissing as they're brought out into the arena.

* DarkerAndEdgier: This film is notably much darker in tone that the previous movie with assassination attempts on Padme's life, the growing tensions in the Republic, Anakin's ''Main/{{Start of Darkness}}'', after he slaughters the Tusken Raiders when they kidnapped, tortured and killed his mother, Jango Fett getting beheaded on-screen in front of his son and the start of the Clone Wars after massive deaths during the Battle of Geonosis.
