** {{Lampshaded}} in the novelization. When Nute Gunray begs to Vader that "(Sidious) said we would be left in peace," Vader cuts him down, responding "His transmission was garbled. [[BondOneLiner He said you'd be left in pieces."]] Another Separatist leader states that Sidious promised them "A handsome reward," and Vader quips "I'm your reward. Don't you find me handsome?"

* ConservationOfNinjitsu: One or two Jedi against a bunch of blaster-wielding enemies? They'll take them down without breaking a sweat. A whole temple full of Jedi against a bunch of blaster-wielding enemies? They get massacred down to the last youngling.



** 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 Chancellor Palpatine as the physically powerful Darth Sidious.

This is done to establish Chancellor Palpatine as the immensely powerful Darth Sidious.
** This happens to the Jedi Order as a whole, and they are almost completely wiped out by Vader and the clones in short order. Somewhat justified, as their loyal troops turning on them comes completely out of nowhere and the fact that they're doing it without malice, due to their programming, presumably makes it hard to sense through the Force.

In the final days of the Clone Wars, a massive battle over Coruscant destabilizes the Separatist forces. As Obi-Wan heads off to end the war once and for all, Anakin turns to TheDarkSide via [[DealWithTheDevil the machinations of Darth Sidious]]. Anakin, now named Darth Vader, participates in the destruction of the Jedi Order (believing them to be the true enemies of order and justice) along with the rise of the Galactic Empire. The film concludes with the single longest lightsaber battle of all six films, as Yoda and Obi-Wan are forced to do battle with Sidious and Vader respectively to try and stop the Empire in its infancy.
