** "He saved others but he couldn't save himself" is a line associated with Jesus's self-sacrfice during the crucification, which is used by [[ConsummateLiar Palpatine]] to [[FromACertainPointOfView paint Darth Plagueis]] as a heroic DarkMessiah Sith to Anakin.

* VillainsNeverLie: Anakin certainly seems to assume this, regarding Palpatine's claim about the Sith being able to prevent death whereas Jedi cannot. Indeed, in this movie (aside for perhaps the "Save your wife from death", which even then is debatable) Palpatine does NOT lie. Even his claim about [[spoiler: Anakin killing Padmé]] is correct (FromACertainPointOfView).

* BrokenAesop: The preservation of democracy against tyranny is one of the morals of the story -- but the Senate is depicted as being one of the biggest problems the Republic has, since they are all too eager to grant more and more executive powers to Palpatine. This escalates to the point where the Jedi Council (the heroes) resolve that they will have to take control of the government when they remove Palpatine from office. This sends a contradictory message that DemocracyIsBad because only a group of unelected warrior-clergy can possibly save the Republic from itself. The novelization explicitly points this out, with the Council discussing the morality of what they're doing, and saying the entire war was a no-win situation for the Jedi.



** Padmé's dying words are that there is still good in Anakin, despite all he has done. This is one thing that [[AllLovingHero Luke Skywalker]] inherits from his mother -- in ''Return of the Jedi'', he strongly believes the same thing, and that Vader can be saved from the Dark Side. [[spoiler:He turns out to be right.]]

* PetTheDog: Near the end of the movie, when Palpatine finds Vader on Mustafar, for a brief moment he acts like he genuinely cares for Vader, and is saddened by what has happened.



* PlatonicDeclarationOfLove: Obi-Wan confesses he loved Anakin like a brother right before leaving him for dead.

* PlatonicDeclarationOfLove: Obi-Wan confesses he loved Anakin like a brother right before reluctantly leaving him for dead.



* TheReveal: This is the installment where Palpatine reveals he is Darth Sidious. [[SarcasmMode Shocking!]]



* TooDumbToLive: Vader on Mustafar. He was blinded by his arrogance and rage, and was nearly killed because he tries to ''make the jump'' towards Obi-Wan standing at the shore of the lava river. He would've died if Palpatine hadn't arrived in time to rescue him.
** The entire Separatist Council on Mustafar also qualify, solely for failing to translate Darth Sidious' "[[DeadlyEuphemism take care of them]]" into "kill them."



* WithUsOrAgainstUs: Darth Vader shouts, "If you're not with me, you're my enemy!" Also, Obi Wan says right back at him, "[[{{Hypocrite}} Only a Sith deals in absolutes.]]"

* YankTheDogsChain: Apart from killing the unarmed Dooku (which he regrets), Anakin persistently does the right thing by everybody for the first half of the film. He rescues Obi-Wan twice, resists the urge to kill Palpatine in his office despite very much wanting to, tells the Jedi everything, and points out that Palpatine should stand trial instead of just being executed. He actually is a pretty good Jedi (minus the whole ‘illicit marriage’ thing), and he ''still'' falls to the Dark Side because of the 'illicit marriage' thing.
* YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForGood: Obi-Wan to Vader.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Subverted. See PetTheDog.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Vader saying to Obi-Wan, "If you're not with me, then you're my enemy!", has been compared by many to something President George W. Bush said after 9/11, "Either you're with us, or you're with the terrorists." Though it may have been intended to be a CallBack to many Nazi regime slogans.
