** The Rancor's death, with its handler weeping over its body. It even whimpers pitifully as it dies. The novelization expands on this, with Luke realizing that not only is the Rancor just an animal following its instincts, but that its been malnourished, mistreated, and abused just so it will be more vicious when Jabba decides to feed people to it for entertainment. Luke rationalizes that the best way to deal with it would be to give it the means to put itself out of its misery, but that the beast can't comprehend that level of mercy, so Luke ''has'' to [[MercyKill kill it]].

* WhatTheHellHero: Yoda gives this to Luke after confirming that Vader was indeed Luke's father, realizing the only way Luke could have suspected it is if Vader told him, and thus Vader could only have told him if Luke recklessly attacked Vader before his training was completed.

** The film drops the WhamLine even before that; much is made of the Rebel fleet rallying at the planet Sullust, believing that they're planning a surprise attack. Right after, the film cuts to Vader asking the Emperor, "What of the reports of the Rebel fleet massing near Sullust?"
