* YouHaveFailedMe: The TropeNamer. Without Tarkin "holding his leash" as in the previous film, Vader force-chokes several of his subordinates to death. Most notably, Admiral Ozzel near the beginning of the movie, which inspires the TropeNamer because Vader outright says the trope name, word for word, and adding, "for the last time, Admiral."

** Subverted with Piett. When the Millennium Falcon escapes the Imperials by jumping into lightspeed (despite his having ''just then'' assured Vader the hyperdrive had been deactivated by Imperial agents on Cloud City), the utter terror on his face is palpable. Vader merely steams in quiet fury for a moment, and slowly strides away leaving a dumbstruck bridge crew in his wake.

* FoilerFootage: Before the movie's premiere, the number of people who knew about TheReveal could be counted on one hand: George Lucas, Irvin Kershner, Gary Kurtz, James Earl Jones, Mark Hamill and whatever editors Lucas trusted to see the scene. Even David Prowse, who had to say ''something'' during filming, was given the fake line "Obi-Wan killed your father." {{Urban Legend}}s now abound of Creator/HarrisonFord turning to Hamill ''in the middle of the premiere'' and giving a BigWhat, as well as David Prowse leaning forward and telling George Lucas "Why didn't you tell me? I would have said it."

* AdvertisedExtra: Boba Fett. He was featured pretty heavily in marketing for the film, and his action figure was easily the most popular of the pre-release toys. In the film itself, however, Boba has only four lines, under two minutes of screen time, and his overall effect on the plot is fairly minor.

* PragmaticVillainy: Vader has one moment when he keeps Boba Fett from simply shooting Chewie when the Wookiee is flailing about trying to prevent Han's doom. He may have been worried about damaging the freezing equipment, or just felt that cleaning Wookiee bits off the walls wouldn't be as satisfying as watching his heart break.
