* SpannerInTheWorks: Pax Teem's plan to [[spoiler: assassinate Plaugeis is brilliantly planned and executed. However, Teem doesn't know his assassins -- the Maladians -- were utilized by Palpatine's aide Sate Pestage to assassinate Senator Kim. Embarrassed at how it was nearly botched, Pestage's Maladian contact tips him off about the Plagueis operation. This allows Palpatine to foil the assassination and leads to Teem's murder.]]

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The fate of [[spoiler: 11-4D after Sidious murders Plagueis. Sidious says he will give 11-4D a new body, but there's no sign or mention of him in the post-''Episode I'' literature. According to [[WordOfGod Luceno]], he likes to think that 11-4D is one of the droids that gets the drop on Aurek Team in ''Labyrinth of Evil'' and is present when Anakin is put into his armor.]]

*** Alternatively, [[spoiler: since Subtext Mining claims they were hired by someone on Naboo, and since Palpatine claims he was plying Plagueis from the beginning, longer than Plagueis knew, it is entirely possible- if stretching- that ''Palpatine'' was the one who hired them, so that the Sith would have an opening, and knowing that Plagueis would be drawn to Naboo for that reason and others, and that thus- through the Force or other means- he somehow found out who the two Sith Lords were before Plagueis even met him (and thus, truly was manipulating his master from the very, very beginning).]]

* MuggingTheMonster: At one point a group of disgruntled associates to Hego Damask take his young protege Palpatine hostage, intending to kill him as a message to the former. Palatine plays along with them while privately thinking about all the ways he can kill them if and when things turn ugly (albeit believing at first that they actually want to get him to spy on his mentor), all the while really more concerned about maintaining his cover and [[BondVillainStupidity letting them explain their sinister plans to him]].

''Darth Plagueis'' is pivotal in that its content is heretofore unexplored. The history of the saga's BigBad is detailed, as are new insights (as experienced through the eyes and actions of the Sith) to galactic events that lead to the Empire's rise. The novel spans decades and even encroaches well into the events of ''The Phantom Menace'', featuring (to varying degrees) characters like [[HeadInTheSandManagement Chancellor Valorum]], [[FallenHero Count Dooku]], [[TheDragon Darth Maul]], [[VillainousGlutton Jabba the Hutt]], [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Nute Gunray]], [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan Kenobi]], and [[TheChosenOne Anakin Skywalker]].

** Palpatine qualifies as well, having come from a very wealthy and prestigious family on Naboo.


Added DiffLines:

* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Palpatine in the Prologue, which shows him in the aftermath of murdering Darth Plagueis. He is positively exultant and awash in the energy of the dark side. Very much like the [[LargeHam Palpatine]] [[EvilIsHammy we know and love from the films.]]

** Plagueis seems to regard himself as this in some respects. He truly believes that the galaxy would be better off under the direction of the Sith. His [[PlanetOfHats Muun mentality]] is at play here- Muuns' regard themselves as superior to other forms of life and prize [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]] and elitism, but they also value the collective good of Muun society. Plaguies thinks it entirely natural and obvious that some people are just destined to rule over others, but that doesn't mean he thinks that all life is intrinsically worthless or that he isn't working towards some higher goal that will ultimately benefit everyone (in his case, the elimination of Death).

* EvenEvilHasStandards: When Tenebrous [note]In the short story ''The Tenebrous Way'', which covers the first chapter of this novel from the perspective of Tenebrous [/note] accessed Force Foresight upon possessing Plagueis, he ended up foreseeing Plagueis's murder at the hands of Darth Sidious/Palpatine, and it was strongly implied that Tenebrous was horrified not just at the apprentice's murder of Plagueis, but also at how ''evil'' said apprentice was.
