* The image of Admiral Thrawn with a ysalimir on his shoulder kinda spoils his whole steely cold evil air. It's like how a pirate can't be taken seriously with a parrot perched on his shoulder.
** Zahn was probably going for something like RightHandCat, given that Thrawn strokes the ysalimiri more than once.
** It's actually a case of the artists either not knowing or deciding to ignore the ysalarmiri are supposed to be on nutrient frames on the back of Thrawn's chair, as it's established they can't survive without being attached to the trees they normally live on, with Thrawn only touching them to remind C'baoth he's powerless because of them. However, drawing a frame is hard, drawing a RightHandCat like a Bond villain is easy.

* Ben Kenobi trying to explain to Luke that it could have only been the "precise aim of Imperial Stormtroopers" that killed the Jawa caravan. Given the [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy Stormtrooper's reputation]] when it comes to their aim, it's literally ''impossible'' to take this quote seriously anymore.

* The 2004 DVD release of the old trilogy gives us Darth Vader, who used to be known as the epitome of evil and just downright badass, with a pink lightsaber. HilarityEnsues. While this is due to the color correction and barely affects Vader's awesomeness in the long run, it's quite funny to think about.






* ''Film/ANewHope'' had the first appearance (by film release) of the now-infamous Skywalker Whining Gene.

* When Tarkin finds out Leia lied to them, Vader makes a bizarre gesture at him after saying his line. Apparently his original line was longer, or just took longer to say, and the gesture was part of it. This was missed by the editors, resuting in Vader gesturing bombastically ''while saying nothing.''

* Mon Mothma's statement that "Many Bothans died to get us this information" is a bit odd since the Bothans are not mentioned anywhere else in the movies, resulting in the line being a non sequitur due to lack of context. Dara O'Briain did a whole sketch based on it in the live show "Crowd Tickler".



* Almost all of Han and Leia's "romantic" dialogue in the beginning of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' sounds like it was written by and for children. "Your Highnessness", anyone?

to:

* Learning that the cantina band from ''A New Hope'' were supposedly called the "Jizz Wailers". AccidentalInnuendo? Perhaps. Narm? With a name like that, yes.
** And that entire style of music in the ''Star Wars'' [[TheVerse 'verse]] is [[CallARabbitASmeerp called]] ''[[HaveAGayOldTime Jizz]]''. Logically leading to musical sub-genres as hot jizz, cool jizz, smooth jizz, big band jizz... you get the idea.
* The DVD commentary for the original trilogy shows how Creator/CarrieFisher saw the destruction of Alderaan: the planet simply vanishing while a guy on set yelled BOOM! Naturally, it was a challenge for her to restrain herself from laughing.
** It didn't help that Peter Cushing, playing despicable Governor Tarkin was, in real life, [[MeanCharacterNiceActor the sweetest tea-and-biscuits English actor Fisher had ever met]]. "He smelled like lavender," she'd say in later years.
*** Add to that, he wore bath slippers while playing Tarkin since his boots were too small.

!!The Empire Strikes Back
* Almost all of Han and Leia's "romantic" dialogue in the beginning of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' film sounds like it was written by and for children. "Your Highnessness", anyone?



* The "Ooooh!" Vader makes when Luke scores a hit on his arm. It sounds like he stubbed his toe.

* In ''Return of the Jedi'', Leia gets shot in the shoulder by a Stormtrooper. Incredibly absurd because she's in plain sight, does not notice him, doesn't move, and he takes the time to pause and aim at her, but he still only gets her in the shoulder. Obi-wan was right, blasters ''are'' clumsy and random!

* "Let's try spinning, that's a good trick!" When one of your characters, who is in the middle of a dogfight in a ship he's not familiar with, sounds more like a kid playing the Episode I Racer {{Nintendo 64}} game than someone in that situation, you might want to consider a rewrite.

** Even worse is the fact that he claims to have been trained in the "Jedi arts", cool stance and four lightsabers included, only to then start rotating mechanically two of his arms in a sort of SpamAttack mode which is obviously a built-in feature of his robot body and not the result of any kind of training.

While that may be dismissed as ConfusionFu, his fighting style consists of striking with either all four weapons at once, or those from one side of the body, whereas he could've use the four of them in different ways, such as locking Obi-Wan's blade with two sabers and slashing his hands with the other two.

** Add to that the fact that throughout this conversation, Obi-Wan is suspended in the air and slowly rotating like a cheap Christmas decoration, requiring him to constantly turn his head and look over his shoulder to continue talking to Dooku.
