* GenreSavvy: Pellaeon is well aware that the New Republic is going to survive the unrest caused by the Caamas Document, would find out if the Empire sent agitators to stir up trouble, and would mete harsh vengeance on them for trying. When some try anyway the first two happen, and the third is narrowly avoided by [[spoiler: Pellaeon's peace treaty.]]

* 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.

* 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.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: At one point, Disra deduces that a flight of ships attacking a star destroyer are Diamalan by working backwards from intelligence reports on recent starship purchases. He then realizes that they're trying to find out if the rumors of Thrawn's return are true, and convinces them by finding in Thrawn's logs the tactics he used against the Diamalans during his invasion nine years earlier. [[KnowWhenToFoldEm The Diamalans quickly bug out.]]

* 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.

* 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.]]
