* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: Shada]] versus [[spoiler: Tierce]]. Considering how much of a BadAss the latter is supposed to be, it's surprising he was defeated so quickly.

* DidntSeeThatComing: The conspirators' plan to make everyone think Flim is [[spoiler:Grand Admiral Thrawn]] works so well that it convinces General Bel Iblis... who, when the attempt at infiltrating the Yaga Minor shipyard goes awry, decides that stopping Thrawn is important enough to sacrifice his own ship and life and prepares to ram "Thrawn"'s. Fortunately for the conspirators, the situation is resolved before this can happen.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In-Universe example. [[spoiler: Luke and Mara stumble upon a clone of Thrawn housed just beneath the fortress on Nirauan, which is almost fully mature and about to wake up. Considering the state of matters in the galaxy and what they just learned within the fortress, both of them nearly decide on just letting it live to continue Thrawn's work. Unfortunately, their snooping happens to wake up a pair of very formidable guard droids, and the ensuing battle results in the clone being destroyed anyway.]]

* ExactWords: Bel Iblis uses these to [[FalseReassurance reassure]] Booster Terrik about his continuing authority over his ship, the Errant Venture, which Iblis plans to use as part of an infiltration mission.
-->'''Terrik:''' "What are you doing, Iblis? You said I would remain captain of this ship!"
-->'''Bel Iblis:''' "You're still the captain. I'm simply the admiral."

Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[DefiedTrope Defied]] by Flim, who [[GenreSavvy sees the writing on the wall]] rather late in the story and calls out Tierce and Disra for acting as if they're above the need for employing fringe elements of the galaxy in their scheme, when half of their plans outright depended on it. Also serve's as Flim's bid for equal standing in ThePlan - even if "Thrawn" is no longer necessary to continue, Flim's knowledge of the underworld will be.

Added DiffLines:

* NonAnswer: After Lando and Senator Miatamia are captured by the person they think is Thrawn, the latter deflects several of Lando's questions and tries to switch topics, only for Miatamia to keenly point out that the questions remain unanswered. "Thrawn" is grudgingly forced to address the issue, praising the famous Diamala intellect.

In other words, ten clicks out from Galactic Center from Bespin, [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack where Lando "had no choice" but to betray Han and his allies.]]
