** The story states that it took place between the end of the Clone Wars and the rise of the Empire. Now that ''Revenge of the Sith'' is out, this is a bit tricky to place, but it can be assumed that it's between Grievous' death and Order 66 going out. In that case, it definitely can't be Obi-Wan.

* TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou: For all its shortcomings, this series is the first time anytime in Franchise/StarWars that a reason for the Light Side being stronger than the Dark Side is given. Jedi are at their most powerful when they at harmony with themselves and the universe; as such Jedi are at harmony with other Jedi, therefore a group of Jedi can work together and become far more powerful than any of them individually. A Sith, who is focused on personal power and achievement, can't do this. Therefore Exar Kun is destroyed for good by Luke's students. Furthermore, Dark Siders tend to shoot themselves in the foot whenever they get too powerful-because the Force derives from life, killing off enemies actually weakens them.

-->'''Corran Horn''': You don't get it, do you? You've already lost and you're continuing down that losing path. Haven't the last four thousand years taught you anything?\\
'''Exar Kun''': I know more than you could ever hope to learn in four thousand years or forty thousand years.\\
'''Corran Horn''': That may be. But I know the one thing you don't. You're never going to win. You destroy those who oppose you, and what does that leave you?\\
'''Exar Kun''': The faithful.\\
'''Corran Horn''': From among whom arises a rival. You have a schism.\\
'''Exar Kun''': And I destroy the heretics.\\
'''Corran Horn''': Yes, you do. And again and again that cycle repeats itself and you let it go on because you've forgotten the most fundamental truth of reality: Life creates the Force. When Kyp destroyed Carida, he diminished your power. When you destroyed Gantoris, you diminished your power. You're a predator over-grazing your prey, but you can't stop because the dark side fills you with this aching hunger that will never be satisfied.

* BaseBreaker: There's a sharp divide amongst fans who think the Jedi Academy Trilogy was absolutely awful, those who find it merely OvershadowedByAwesome with Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy as well as Comic/DarkEmpire, and those who actually like it. It seems to depend on how serious you like your ''Star Wars'' since Kevin J. Anderson took a somewhat over-the-top comical style to the series.

* VillainSue: Some people have accused the Sun Crusher of being this, with how utterly broken it is, despite being the size of a fighter. It's rather derpy design doesn't make it anymore endearing.

** The unreleased until 2015 short story ''Lone Wolf'' by Abel G. Pena confirms it to be Obi-Wan, who was wearing a Tatooine-crafted robe that was a gift from Anakin. As it was originally unreleased, the canonicity in the Legends continuity is a bit suspect.

** Although Episode II was famous for including the first purple lightsaber as a result of Samuel L. Jackson's insistence, Gantoris already uses a violet blade in Dark Apprentice.

** Similarly, ''I, Jedi'' while better received by fans, tends to include a contingent among fans who think it was disrespectful for Michael Stackpole to ''fix'' Kevin J. Anderson's work.

* EvilIsCool: Exar Kun comes off as this. Thoroughly averted, amusingly, in ''I, Jedi'' where Exar Kun is portrayed as a psychotic creep.
