* AvengingTheVillain: [[spoiler:Jango Fett]]'s reason for opposing the PC's, though the person he is trying to avenge, [[spoiler:Darth Maul]], wasn't exactly evil.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite all his in-game stupidity, Jim is doing a Ph.d. in geophysics. [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0143.html It doesn't escape Annie's notice when he points it out]].

** Jabba has [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1279.html an excellent line]]: "Everybody dies! But not everybody lives as I live this moment!" ... and then spoils the effect by trying to come up with something more.

* GeniusDitz: Jim is a real ditz in RPG, genius otherwise. See [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0143.html here]] to see him put the GM in his place when the GM uses the word "vergence" wrong, because he's doing Ph.D in geophysics. And [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0150.html later]], he even works out the insane conditions that would make a planet like Naboo physically possible to patch up the GM's overlooking basic physics in the earlier strips. But lest we forget the second half of this trope:

** [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1434.html The comic's take on]] the brief sight gag in ''Return of the Jedi'' where Wicket the Ewok accidentally hits himself in the head while trying to throw a bola spins the shot of him falling over (a shot which in the movie lasted less than 1 second) into 6 panels of absurdly flowery FamousLastWords which sound like quotations from Shakespeare, including a great deal of Latin.

** The regular DM is fairly good at avoiding this, though his reactions to the PC's decisions make it very obvious when they veer off the path he had hoped they would follow... which is more often than not.

* HiddenDepths: Jim may be an outstanding {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, but he's far from dumb, given that he's studying geophysics. (Which actually comes up a lot in the game.) Sally regularly demonstrates a profound creative streak - designing memorable (if outlandish) characters, describing settings and outfits, and world-building Kashyyyk (which blew the GM's own work on Utapau out of the water). She also came up with the whole idea of the Dark Side by accident.

*BilingualBonus:
** In the NerdsSpeakKlingon mentioned below, Pete's [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1019.html Quenya die]] rolls a neldë (three), which causes him to say that his periscope is rácina (broken). Especially awesome because that word is used only ''once'' in J.R.R. Tolkien's entire legendarium, which means the writers put some serious effort into this incredibly obscure joke.

** There were, of course, many references to Admiral Ackbar declaring things to be traps (although he never actually does so). When it got to the original scene, he actually ends up declaring that it's ''not'' a trap, "we're just prats!"

** Episode VI: A "Robot Utopia" campaign, which was apparently a TurnedAgainstTheirMasters plot with the players on the side of the robots.
*** Given that the players were robotic dinosaurs and the plot was resolved by a young female hacker turning on electric fences it's possible that this was Film/JurassicPark with robots instead of genetic engineering.

** Defied; fans eagerly anticipated seeing what the "Han Shot First" scene would be, but the creators knew early on they didn't want to make that joke and instead turned the scene into a legitimate plot twist. They do, however, make the expected "shot first" jokes in other places, as a RunningGag about Han's [[TriggerHappy tendency to shoot first and not even bother asking questions later,]] often shooting anything the group ran into before bothering to figure out whether shooting that thing was a good idea or not.
