** Later on, when Mace uses the Force to make two pilots' {{Ejector Seat}}s activate, it's mentioned that one of them howled something unmentionable. The other just howled.



* {{Determinator}}: All Korunnai, including Mace, are this in spades. Particular mention goes to Mace and to Chalk, who takes a horrible gut wound and never says anything [[spoiler: right up until she dies]].



** It gets even worse if one is TheEmpath, and is a master of a lightsaber form which focuses on channeling one's BloodKnight desires.



* KneelBeforeFrodo: When Mace rescues several prisoners, one of them kowtows to him, calling him "Your Highness" and begging for the lives of his children. Mace tells him to knock it off.

* {{Badass}}: Windu, of course. Lesser badasses include Depa, Nick, Kar and Chalk.



* DefeatByModesty: Two [[DirtyCop dirty cops]] attempt this on Mace and several others. [[BadAss Mace being Mace,]] [[CurbStompBattle this does not end well for the cops.]]

* WaterfallIntoTheAbyss: The giant waterfall at the edge of the Korunnal Highland. In this case, the water doesn't actually fall into "the abyss" so much as a soup of heavier-than-air toxic gases; eventually it boils away and makes it way back into the cloud layer.

* ShatterpointTap: Physically shattering objects is the ''least'' that Mace can do with his unique Force talent. He can see the weak points of people's minds, the wills of armies, even ''entire interstellar nations''. It's just that Jedi aren't supposed to mow down worlds like fields of wheat - and just because he can see those points doesn't mean that tapping them is easy.

* AwesomeByAnalysis: This is actually a specialty of fully-trained Jedi; using the insight of the Force allows them to navigate any situation and achieve an optimal outcome (be in within combat or otherwise). Mace Windu's unique gift is that he can sense what action in any given moment will achieve the optimum outcome with minimal exertion and always could. Effectively, he gets the ''results'' of AwesomenessByAnalysis without having to run the numbers. Looking at a crystal that would dent a sledgehammer, for instance, he can instantly spot where a light tap would shatter it (i.e. the [[TitleDrop shatterpoint]]). Looking at a person, he can see weaknesses in armor or physiology or strategy, and disable or kill them. This doesn't mean a shatterpoint always exists or that tapping it will be easy, however.

* TheNondescript: The guy who brings the recording from Haruun Kal is so ordinary-looking that Mace immediately pegs him for a spy.
