* MetaphoricallyTrue: Obi-Wan's explanation of what happened to Luke's father; as far as he's concerned, the good man that was Anakin Skywalker died when he betrayed the Jedi Order, so he was technically telling the truth.

'''Obi-Wan:''' Your father was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true, [[TropeNamers from a certain point of view.]]\\

** The Emperor encouraging Luke be aggressive and kill Vader is ''not'' this trope. While killing his father in a moment of passion might have worked, to do so deliberately and knowingly would have been more effective. However, his gleefully telling Luke to finish him does cause Luke to have his HeelRealization - and Palpatine [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith had no problems TRICKING people into the Dark Side before]] anyway.

** Jabba as well, though he doesn't take the threat Luke poses seriously. His mistake. That includes Luke's supposedly last statement to Jabba above the mouth of the Sarlacc, "This is your last chance; free us or die!" Jabba laughs at the absurd thought of the Jedi being so defiant in the face of his own death as to threaten ''him''. However Jabba sees to his shock Luke beginning to carry out that threat with overwhelming force.

* FlauntingYourFleets: One particular shot shows that the Imperial armada over Endor is positively gigantic. The Rebel Fleet is also treated to a number of establishing shots of their massed assortment of starships and fighters. Of note is the shot of the Fleet just before jumping to Hyperspace, and the shot of the Fleet arriving over Endor just before they realize [[spoiler: It's a trap!]]

* PetTheDog: The Rancor keeper's inconsolable reaction to Luke killing the monster, although more played for laughs, managed to garner a bit more sympathy than expected. As Creator/RogerEbert said, "Everybody loves somebody." Think about it: the Rancor is just an animal, it doesn't have any choice in who it fights. Like if Luke was thrown into a lion pit and had to kill it.

* RelativeButton: Luke lost most of his family, either dead or turned evil. His sister is all he has left, so attempting to threaten that she would do either is the one thing that sets him off.

%%* BigBadassBattleSequence: This is a ''Star Wars'' movie, after all.

%%* * BigBadassBattleSequence: This is a ''Star Wars'' movie, after all.Two thirds of the finale are the rebels on Endor trying to destroy the shield around the death star, and the rebel fleet in space trying to last against the imperial fleet until that shield goes down.



* CapturedOnPurpose: After realizing that Vader can sense his presence, Luke does this hoping that the Empire won't notice the rest of the team, forcing him to face Vader earlier than he had planned.
%%** Arguably Leia in Jabba's Palace, but definitely Chewbacca.
%%* CaughtInASnare: Oh, those Ewoks.

* CapturedOnPurpose: Chewie pretends to be captured by a bounty hunter to get into Jabba's palace. It's unstated how many others in the rescue team got deliberately captured or were just adjusting the plan accordingly.

* GoGoEnslavement: The captured women at Jabba's palace are put in skimpy outfits. The usual form is a metal bra and either harem pants or thin strips of fabric that barely count as a skirt (Carrie Fisher joked that having her wear that outfit was just to get her to go to the gym more).
