* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: It's a nineteen-book epic space fantasy series linked into ''dozens'' of other novels from the same universe; that's longer in at least one way than the ''WheelOfTime'', so imagine how many characters there are.

* DidntSeeThatComing: A Vong infiltration in ''Onslaught'' takes a child hostage so Leia can't shoot her. There's a tense moment as she aims at Leia... and then, thanks to Danni Queen's emerging force powers, the clip of her gun falls out.

* EyeScream: EyeScream:
** Corran Horn's first fight with a pair of Vong troopers has him take out the first, and more inexperienced, with a lightsaber to the eye, thanks to the unique design of his lightsaber. He notes it only worked because they didn't expect it, and it won't work on the second.

* MoralMyopia: Shedao Shai is appalled that the evacuees of Dantooine at the end of ''Dark Tide: Onslaught'' leave their dead behind. Never mind that they were running from a Vong attack they couldn't resist, and didn't have time to pick up every corpse.



* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels: In ''Star by Star, Ganner Rhysode gets the Yuuzhan Vong terms for "low-caste person" and "dung of a rotting meat maggot" confused.

* NeverFoundTheBody: Nom Anor, leading to many fans speculating that he actually survived. So far, canon has neither confirmed nor denied this, but it's been so long since ''The Unifying Force'' in-universe that it's becoming increasingly unlikely.

* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: At the times the Yuuzhan Vong are willing to exploit this through the use of refugees or other hostages.
** Blackmoon Squadron is a clear believer. Despite being all but certain that one of their wounded members was evacuated already, they go back during a planetary evacuation when his abandoned fighter launches, saying they won't leave their own behind. This ends up saving the life of another pilot who was forced to use the damaged starfighter to escape the planet.

* MundaneUtility: The Force is what gives the Jedi their power. It allows them to move objects with their mind, influence the weak-minded and animals... during ''Dark Tide: Onslaught'', it's used by Kyp as a glorified umbrella to keep sand off him.


Added DiffLines:

** Kyp Durron's antics, and those of his followers in ''Vector Prime'' sabotage Leia's attempts to warn everyone about the Vong during ''Dark Tide''.

** Actually, sort of an inversion. Stackpole intended for the reverence for pain to be a quirk of Domain Shai, but other writers made it a characteristic of the species. The retcon was that all Vong were into it, but Domain Shai was into it UpToEleven.

** In the chronologically later ''StarWarsLegacy'', several characters, most notably Jariah Syn, ''do'' use Vongtech regularly, and it's pretty useful, especially against Jedi or Sith, though by that point the Vong were much friendlier and more willing to share their secrets- Jariah had a Vong warrior as a mentor who taught him a lot.

** In the early stages of the war, this was the main weapon the Yuuzhan Vong had against the New Republic. Infiltrators and collaborators kept the New Republic from fully reacting to the Vong threat pretty much until they were knocking on Coruscant's doorstep. Notably, fleets that could have been sent to out slow, halt, or even turn back the Vong advance early were kept in defensive formations around valuable Core worlds that were in no danger whatsoever of attack.

** Perfectly summed up when it is revealed that the best translation for "peace" in the Yuuzhan Vong language is "appropriate submission of the conquered to the conqueror."
