* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Tavira's belief that Luke Skywalker ordered the destruction of Carida was because: 1, that's what she would have done to her foes had she a Sun Crusher; and 2, grace such as Durron was shown is completely outside her understanding.

** And of course, with the ''Legends'' retcon in April of 2014, these books in their entirety are non-canon unless referenced by a new source, and even then, [[BroadStrokes only to the extent that they're referenced]].

Then Corran goes to his homeworld, Corellia, talks things over with his grandfather, and [[TheInfiltration infiltrates]] some of the pirates who associate with the Invids, in the meantime picking up a [[HandOfThrawn Camaasi]] who is able to straighten out his morals. Eventually he chases all of the pirates off a planet with a campaign of intimidation, faces down the Sith-influenced Jedi sect called the Jensaari alongside Luke, and saves Mirax.

** The romance between Mara and Lando in the Jedi Academy trilogy was retconned into being a cover story in ''HandOfThrawn'', and given the links between ''I, Jedi'' and that duology, it's unsurprising that there's a brief nod to this RetCon in ''I, Jedi''.

* FixFic: Stackpole uses ''I, Jedi'' to make the ''Jedi Academy'' trilogy more palatable. Note that ''I, Jedi'' also has lots of crossover with the ''HandOfThrawn'' books by Creator/TimothyZahn, which are even more of a FixFic for the whole EU.

** Mirax later has a similar reaction to Admiral Tavira saying much the same thing.

** Mirax later has a similar reaction to Admiral Tavira saying much the same thing. After that, Luke decides that Corran's earlier comment about making sure that Mirax and Mara never meet is good advice.

* MadeOfIndestructium: The Sun Crusher's hull is armored in a material that is, quite literally, indestructible. It's rammed through the bridge tower of an Imperial Star Destroyer and tossed into the heart of a gas giant with zero ill effects.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Given how much of Yavin 4's sky Yavin fills, Four has to be tidally locked. So there should be only "Twi-night" on that side, and only ever "Truenight" on the far side.

* AFatherToHisMen: Luke
* AMillionIsAStatistic: Kyp Durron used the Sun Crusher to kill a ''lot'' of people. But one of those was his brother, he feels bad about that, Han talked him out of being evil, and he almost died sticking the Sun Crusher into a black hole, so ... let's bring him back to the Jedi Academy and work on that temper! In ''I, Jedi'', this is what finally drives Corran Horn to quit. Pretty much every other book in the EU to have Kyp has his KarmaHoudini brought up, and Kyp himself becomes TheAtoner.
** Since Carida was an Imperial planet and a major Stormtrooper training center, it explains why many in the New Republic weren't all that dismayed by its destruction. Particularly given that the [[AssInAmbassador Caridan ambassador]] had just shortly before attempted to assassinate the New Republic Chief of State (though they did not know that at the time). However, since the Jedi '''''felt''''' the deaths of the planet's millions of inhabitants in excruciating detail, including all the civilian population, some of them were less inclined to be so forgiving.

* AdaptationalBadass: Exar Kun was later shown to have an epic backstory, but his ghost in the original trilogy was a rather underwhelming villain. ''I, Jedi'' upgrades him considerably, both in intelligence and power, by expanding on his role.

** Originally, it was "billions" who perished, which sounds more plausible. The lower number comes from sourcebook fluff, and may have been intended to mitigate the backlash against Kyp's actions.
