* InformedAbility: Daala's supposedly magnificent military strategies that caught the eye of Tarkin in the past. Handwaved in two ways: she was a brilliant ground commander, so her abilities don't necessarily translate into naval command, and the ''Literature/DeathStar'' novel has her suffer some brain damage during a rebel attack.

* KarmaHoudini: Kyp. Called out by Corran in ''I, Jedi'', and virtually every EU novel afterward.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Exar Kun wasn't ''dormant'', precisely, since he bred monsters, but an academy of semitrained Jedi was exactly what the pharmacist prescribed to get him back into intergalactic affairs.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Subverted: The Maw does have a prototype Death Star hanging around...
** Kyp invokes this by [[LaserGuidedAmnesia mind-wiping]] Qwi Xux of the designs for the Imperial superweapons, so that no more could be made.
** When the New Republic dismantles Maw Installation and and Kyp destroys the Death Star prototype (with most of the remaining Maw researches onboard) and dumps the Sun Crusher in a black hole, it seems that all information that could be used to recreate Imperial superweapons has been eliminated. [[Literature/TheCallistaTrilogy Except that another backup of the plans is stored deep in the archives of the Imperial Palace on Coruscant, and the original lead designer had been reassigned away from the Maw years earlier so he's still at large.]]

*** Daala also escapes to the Imperial Remnant with a portion of the data, and some of it gets used to build weapons in later series. ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' initially declares it all AwesomeButImpractical, but Daala returns in ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' with other, field-ready weapons built to Maw specs.

* CaughtInTheBadPartOfTown: There is one part where toddlers Jacen and Jaina Solo wind up in the dark underbelly of Coruscant, where they encounter malfunctioning worker droids, cannibalistic street wraiths and various other unsavory types.

* JustForPun: In ''I, Jedi'', when the dual-phase modification on his lightsaber fails, Corran discovers the diamond he'd used for it was, in fact, a synthetic "Kubaz xurconia."

* SelfDeprecatingHumor: Corran is badass enough ''weaponize'' it. When a rival from another pirate squadron tries insulting Corran's wingman while he's undercover, Corran deflects it back at him. The rival states that it's typical of Corellians to speak before they think, and Corran launches into an ''epic'' recitation of a variety of Corellian-specific barbs the rival ''could'' have said instead, culminating in the "light-bulb joke" mentioned above. Corran then NoSells the guy's first punch, insults him again, and knocks him flat on his ass when the rival tries to attack a second time.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Lampshaded by Han when Qwi Xux attempts to claim that the Death Star and World Devastators were designed for peaceful applications, like asteroid mining. Han points out that if that were the case, they probably wouldn't have had words like "death" or "devastator" in their names.

Corran also points this out to Wedge in ''I, Jedi'', doubting that Qui was quite as clueless as she claims.

* TheCorrupter: Lacking a physical form and therefore very limited in his ability to influence the outside world, Exar Kun acts as this in order to manipulate other Force-sensitives toward the Dark Side so the can act as his pawns.


Added DiffLines:

* EmotionEater: In addition to manipulating them into doing his bidding, part of the reason Exar Kun's spirit corrupts people to the Dark Side is that he is strengthened by their negative emotions.
-->'''Kun:''' Anger is a most sweet nectar. Despair will also suffice.

* EarthShatteringKaboom: The Empire's training academy world, Carida, gets blasted into its component atoms courtesy of a supernova induced by the Sun Crusher. The Death Star Prototype later tries to do this to Kessel, but its targeting system is so badly screwed up that it actually ends up destroying the planet's moon. Which doesn't explain why the subsequent gravity warping from the loss of its moon didn't destroy Kessel anyway.
** The moon didn't vanish, it just was blown up into much smaller pieces. The mass is still there orbiting Kessel.

* GeneralFailure: Admiral Daala, whose sole achievements are killing a few dozen refugees on Dantooine, and destroying a floating city on the Mon Calamari homeworld. Not only does this massively pale compared to what [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] managed to achieve with only slightly more resources, even other characters with no military training whatsoever (such as Kyp Durron and Tol Sivron) manage to cause more mass-destruction in this very storyline.
