* DeathOfAChild: Edgy variant: the newly-appointed Darth Vader steps into a room full of kindergarten-aged Jedi with his lightsaber. After the cutscene, there are no more Jedi. You do the math. The movie manages to NeverSayDie around the issue to soften the potential impact, with such {{Unusual Euphemism}}s as "Younglings," (although the novel adaptation explains this is a catch-all term for young members of any species, so it incorporates children, pups, kittens, etc; also, the word is used in the same context in Episode II). The word ''kill'' certainly comes up anyway.

* WorfHadTheFlu: In the original "Legends" continuïty, te reason General Grievous is taken down without too much trouble in this film is that he was damaged from a previous battle with Mace Windu. Even in the new Canon, it still seems like he is having a bit of an off day.

** Mace Windu takes a posse of ''three Jedi Masters'' with him to confront Palpatine, all of whom are killed within seconds. Especially glaring when you consider that one of them was Kit Fisto, who single-handedly almost took down General Grievous in ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars The Clone Wars]]''. This is done to establish Channeclor Palpatine as the physically powerful Darth Sidious.

* VillainousBreakdown: Anakin went through this after his FaceHeelTurn. He really start to lose after seeing Obi-Wan on Padmé's ship, resulting in him Force choking his wife and dueling with his former Jedi master on Mustafar.

* TragicMistake: Anakin breaks with the Jedi by :unintentionally aiding Palpatine in killing Mace Windu. "What have I done?" indeed. [[WordOfGod Lucas]] suggests that the ''real'' tragic mistake was Mace Windu taking that dramatic killing swing at Palpatine, instead of just finishing him off instantly. It gave Anakin time to intervene, also suggests that while Palpatine knew Anakin would intervene, Mace had no idea it would happen, leaving him deceived by the old man, and/or that Anakin did not intend for Mace Windu to be killed by Palpatine, as he was actually trying to stop Windu from falling to the Dark Side by murdering Palpatine (presumably due to guilt for killing Dooku). Unfortunately, he didn't anticipate that Palpatine would play possum and then attack Mace Windu when his guard was forcibly dropped.

-->'''Palpatine:''' Ironic, really. He could save others from dying... but not himself.

** The Video Game's version plays this straight as an alternate ending: Vader kills Obi-Wan, and Palpatine declares that there is none left to oppose them (meaning Yoda possibly died). However, after Palpatine hands Vader his new weapon, a red lightsaber, Vader stabs Palpatine and declares himself the new emperor. And because Obi-Wan is dead, Padmé would not be able to be taken to Pollis Massa, and Luke and Leia would never have been born. And thus, the Jedi are completely dead.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: With Mace Windu as the ringleader. Anakin is treated very much like an outsider by the Jedi, which only makes it easier for Palpatine, who is invariably nicer to him than the Jedi Council is, to manipulate the heck out of him. Mace in particular makes no attempt to hide his dislike for Anakin, and even after Anakin tells him that Palpatine is the Sith Lord his condescending comment is that Anakin will have earned his trust ''if'' it proves to be true, making it clear that he has not trusted him all the years he has been a Padawan and a Jedi Knight.

* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: During his fight with General Grievous, Obi-Wan's lightsaber is lost, and he fights him using the Force, despite there being a convenient blaster at his feet. [[ChekhovsGun He eventually does]].

* {{Homage}}: Yoda's head rub in an early scene of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' is intentionally modelled after that of ''Film/SevenSamurai'' leader Kambei after his ImportantHaircut.
