* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** Between the brain damage and the fact that Daala's background indicates that in the academy she was a brilliant ''ground combat'' tactician, perhaps her incompetence in space combat is justified. Had Tarkin made her a general and put her in charge of a Stormtrooper legion, she probably would've done a good job. But Tarkin needed her in a position where she could be hidden from his wife, so he had to make her an admiral and station her at a secret facility. Also, in the more recently written novel ''Literature/DeathStar'' she suffered a head injury during a Rebel attack on the construction site, and medics weren't able to get to her quickly enough to allow for a full recovery. In fact, part of the brain damage was [[LaserGuidedAmnesia amnesia about the Rebel attack in which she was injured]], so ''she doesn't even know she has brain damage''.

All of which are ex post facto attempts by other authors to justify her GeneralFailure tendencies in her original appearance as even other Star Wars writers couldn't take her being presented as a tactical genius in her original appearance at face value.
