* WorthIt: During the final battle, [[spoiler:Vader is fully aware that he'll be risking the Emperor's wrath by killing Xizor (whom currently has the Emperor's favor as a major resource-provider), but still invokes this trope after finally having enough of Xizor's bullcrap.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Both Xizor and Vader, regarding their EvenEvilHasLovedOnes. Xizor, who wants to avenge his slain family, feels complete NoSympathy for a would-be assassin attempting to do the same for his own father (whom Xizor caused to be DrivenToSuicide). Vader, meanwhile, feels PapaWolf outrage upon learning about Xizor wanting Luke dead, yet doesn't even offer so much as a NobleDemon nod of understanding about the kingpin's own family-related vendetta against Vader.

* TenMinuteRetirement: [[Spoiler:Dash's plan to fake his death lasts at most a year]], as an RPG article has him on a mission with [[VideoGame//DarkForcesSaga Kyle Katarn, Jan Ors]] and [[ComicBook//MarvelStarWars Bey to infiltrate the Tof homeworld]].]]

* BeenThereShapedHistory: {{Subverted}}, actually. There's a mention of Vader once altering records to make it seem as if Prince Xizor was present on the Lars homestead when Luke's aunt and uncle were killed, but he wasn't there.
** Dash Rendar, however, ''was'' at the battle of Hoth. A brief mention in the book, but a playable event in the game, which was notable in that, thanks to [[Awesome/VideoGameLevels how well the level turned out]], [[FollowTheLeader every Star Wars game set in or after the classic trilogy since then]] has had a Hoth level if the devs could find an excuse to add one (plot relevance and doing something other than just adapting the battle from the film optional).

* TurnsRed: In the video game - as you destroy the Gladiator from the feet up, its attacks become deadlier.

* TurnsRed: In the video game - as you destroy the Gladiator from the feet up, its attacks become deadlier. On top of that, the floor opens up and creates a maze (which has a few droids in it), and once the head is left, it will only use the sweeping laser and your jetpack will malfunction; it won't refill when you exhaust the fuel.

** We learn in the video game that luring the Rebels to the Death Star II to wipe them out in the Battle of Endor was ''all'' Xizor's idea, not the Emperor's. Xisor even provided the ships to construct the new station.

* TheCameo: Jabba the Hutt makes a brief appearance when Xizor talks to him via holoprojector in the novel. Jix's story in the comic version focuses more heavily on him and the thugs he commands.

* TheCameo: Jabba the Hutt makes a brief appearance when BadBoss / BenevolentBoss: Xizor talks to him via holoprojector in zigzags between the novel. Jix's story two, as he is just as prone to reward a good working employee as to punish (sometimes in the comic version focuses more heavily on him and the thugs he commands.unpleasant ways) [[YouHaveFailedMe those who failed him]].

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Xizor apparently loved his family. At least enough to try to bring down the second most powerful man in the galaxy in order to avenge them.
