* FixingTheGame: Qui-Gon, a religious monk, doesn't hesitate to cheat at dice using [[MindoOverMatter the Force]] if it serves the greater good. The film's {{Novelization}} justifies, Watto was using a weighted die and Qui-Gon knew it. No wonder he didn't mind cheating a cheater.

* RightInFrontOfMe: Queen Padmé Amidala ends up talking about herself with Qui-Gon Jinn while she's disguised as her own handmaid. It's complicated by ambiguity over when Qui-Gon figured out Padmé's the queen; it may be a straight example or he may be messing with her.

* ConnectedAllAlong: In this prequel, Anakin Skywalker proudly points to his robotic creation, C3-PO. This seems rather insignificant, except that the first three ''Star Wars'' movies never indicated that C3-PO had any connection to Anakin, who had grown into an evil sorcerer bent on ruling the galaxy.

* AirstrikeImpossible: Bravo Squadron's assault on the Droid Control Ship. It quickly becomes clear that they have the deck stacked against them--the ships deflector shield is too strong for their starfighters to penetrate, and the ship is heavily armed and has an endless supply of Droid Starfighters to launch against the tiny squadron of royal fighters. It takes Anakin's flight into the ships hanger and sabotage of the ships reactor to turn the tide.

* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: The Trade Federation flagships have a decidedly unorthodox design scheme for a spaceship, having a shape that can basically be described as a half eaten donut with a donut hole in the middle. ''Attack of the Clones'' revealed that the center sphere is detachable and can function as a spaceship in of itself, with the outer ring serving as the cargo holds for their droid army and supplies, complete with two parallel hanger bays on the open ends of the ring.

* RefusalOfTheCall: Both Padme and Anakin. The former is initially hesitant to leave her suffering people on Naboo for Coruscant and the latter has trepidation of leaving his enslaved mother behind in order to become a Jedi.
