** 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]].

** The TIE Interceptor pilot that was following the ''Millennium Falcon'' as it [[spoiler: flees the destruction of the death star. In the EU, the TIE Interceptor is fast enough in sublight to overtake the ''Falcon'', but with no room to maneuver (and likely no plans loaded into the navigation), the poor pilot has no choice but to follow the much slower YT1300 out of the Death Starů he doesn't make 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?"

* StandardStarshipScuffle: The Battle of Endor starts out more as a Battle of Midway-style melee, with snub fighters attacking the enemy capital ships, but once the Death Star cranks up its superlaser the Rebel cruisers have no choice but to go in and engage the Imperial Star Destroyers toe-to-toe so that at least the Death Star can't get a clear shot at them.

** Later in that scene, Luke agrees with the "That Man Is Dead" interpretation to throw Vader off.

** When Luke's group gets caught up in an Ewok net, he asks Han if he could reach his Lightsaber, remembering the time Han used it in Empire to cut open a Tauntaun for warmth.

* YouAnsweredYourOwnQuestion: As the Rebel fleet is approaching the second Death Star, Lando gets word that they can't tell if the deflector shield protecting it is up or down because of jamming, prompting him to ask, "How could they be jamming us if they don't know...[[OhCrap that we're coming]]. Break off! The shield is still up!"

* BerserkButton: Luke at first refuses to fight Vader in their climatic duel and hides from him -- but when Vader reads his mind, realises he has a twin sister, and baits Luke with the possibility that Leia will be turned to the Dark Side if he refuses to do so, Luke ''' ''SNAPS.'' ''' He goes after Vader with everything he's got, and probably would have killed him if he hadn't come to his senses.
