There have been several spinoff novels and short stories from the computer game ''VideoGame/StarWarsRepublicCommando'', known as the '''''Republic Commando Series'''''. Although there is a degree of intertextuality between these stories, they can be split into several defined story arcs that can be read individually from each other. While clone commandos appear in many stories, such as ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'' and ''Jedi Trial'', this list only deals with direct spinoffs from the ''Republic Commando'' franchise.

* ScrewYouElves: Traviss's irrational hate of Jedi is astounding. It gets to the point that if you're a Jedi and aren't openly critical of using the clones as a slave army then you're a fool and not worth the time of the 'oh so proud' Mandalorians.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Played straight with the clones. All of them end up with girlfriends.
** Excluding Niner, some of the Nulls, and all of Delta. So really, there's an even mix.

* BerserkButton: Do '''''NOT''''' insult any clones in front of Kal Skirata '''''EVER!!!!!!!'''''
** Likewise, do '''''NOT''''' insult ''Kal'buir'' in front of Ordo '''''EVER!!!!!!!''''' .... As Ensign Luszgoti found out in a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
** Don't refer to any commando as "clone", either, especially one that's been all but trained to buck any authority they don't like, such as Skirata and Vau's pods.

* {{Retcon}}: This series does a number on the then-recent "History of the Mandalorians" article by Abel G. Pena. Instead of Spar being an insane, fanatical, and charasmatic Mandalore who becomes a ShellShockedVeteran, he's a cynical puppet warlord who's in it for the MoneyDearBoy, the Mandalorian Civil War was a minor affair that most Mandalorians ignored, and instead of only around 212 highly dangerous Mandalorians, we have an entire planet of them. Also, that totally awesome City of Bone from the Marvel Comics? Now a failed tourist trap.
** Of course, with the 3rd-person character POV the reader's provided with, we never do get the entire picture of just what was going on with Spar. For all we really know—or at the ease of another writer to elaborate upon in the future—it's not so much an out-and-out retcon as an expansion, with Spar muddying the water with his snarky jerkass personality.

** ''Order 66'' does a little of it to patch holes between the prequel trilogy canon and the preceding EU material. The Spaarti cloning cylinders from ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'' make an appearance, explained as a different technology than used by the Kaminoans that [[QuantityVsQuality can grow clones faster at the cost of reduced quality control]].



* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Both averted and played straight. The short story ''Odds'' is all about how the Clone Wars have allegedly vastly inflated numbers. Many fans argue that the 1,000,000 clones from ''Attack of the Clones'' could never fight a war across the entire galaxy. They, for some reason, picked a bone with her over this, even though the whole unit=clone concept was first established in the ''AttackOfTheClones'' movie novelization, a G-canon (read: higher tier than her works) source that predated her by over two years.
** Karen Traviss eventually introduces non-Kaminoan clones to compensate.
