** [[MemeticMutation TR-8R]]=/=Nines, for packing lots of badass into [[OneSceneWonder one scene]]. In that scene, he denounces [[MookFaceTurn Finn]] as a [[MemeticMutation "TRAITOR!"]], pulls out a riot baton ([[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning which he spins a lot]]), nearly beats Finn in a fight, before being blasted by Chewbacca's [[BFG crossbow]]. The internet ran with it, and depicted him as the master of sick spins.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: When the franchise was bought by Disney, many expanded universe elements were deemed non-canon and placed under the ''Legends'' continuity. As a result, the non-canonization of many fan-favorite characters, such as Thrawn and Mara Jade, left quite a few fans dissatisfied. Come 2017, and Thrawn has been adapted to the Disney-produced canon series ''Rebels'', while Han Solo's mentor figure, Garris Shrike, is teased by Woody Harrelson as the character he'll be playing in the Han Solo anthology film.

** Late 2017 through 2018 is a mild one, with the one-two punch of the [[BribingYourWayToVictory relentlessly predatory]] ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefrontII'' and the [[ContestedSequel very polarizing reaction]] to ''Film/TheLastJedi'' eroding at some of the goodwill generated by ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' and ''Film/RogueOne'', as well as ''Film/{{Solo}}'' being heavily TaintedByThePreview with a TroubledProduction. While there ''are'' many fans who deny this and find ''Film/TheLastJedi'' to be an EvenBetterSequel, others are questioning Disney's handling of the franchise; some even argue that the franchise is in an even worse state than it was with the prequels. However, some fans point to the fact that Disney had a similar SophomoreSlump with its ''other'' big live-action geek franchise (the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse) and that it still has time to establish a consistent quality and tone for its take on ''Star Wars''.

* FandomBerserkButton:
** Bringing up just about ''anything'' involving the Prequel Trilogy and the [[GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion "Special]] [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Editions"]] of the Original Trilogy has been known to tick off a certain very scornful section of fans of the series. And on a minor note; do '''not''' call Darth Vader [[RougeAnglesOfSatin "Dark" Vader]] unless you really want to get on a fan's nerves.
** Mentioning David Brin and his distaste of the series is another way to get fans angry due to what many people view as a lackluster argument, issues of anti-democratic and anti-fantasy ideas aside.

** The {{anvilicious}} sociopolitical messages of the sequel trilogy can get on many fans' nerves. While the most obvious reason is because of the anviliciousness itself, a possibly bigger reason is that it causes an unnecessary ''political'' divide in the ''Star Wars'' fanbase. The sequels' hatedom is largely composed of people who oppose their (well-intentioned) progressive messages ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment 'nuff said]]), which causes ''any'' fan who dislikes the sequels, even if they agree with their messages, to be lumped with the haters and their often rabid and regressive worldviews. Whether intentional or not, this sort of political polarization and "guilt-tripping" of people who dislike the sequels is frowned upon by many fans who, you know, ''just want to enjoy Star Wars''.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: A common complaint with the new Disney movies is that they borrow too much from the original trilogy in both setting and story structure. ''The Force Awakens'' was seen as a point-by-point rehash of ''A New Hope'' and ''The Last Jedi'' had a narrative structure that evokes ''The Empire Strikes Back''. Likewise, the anthology films have that were criticized for borrowing too many plot beats from

* IronWoobie: Obi Wan Kenobi endures an excruciating amount of personal loss and suffering without complaining about it or visibly cracking under the pressure. The only indication given that he actually is quite broken is his increased snarkiness after TPM. He was snarky before but the following movies ramped it up considerably.

** ''The Last Jedi'' is so divisive that claiming that you have ''any'' sort of opinion on the movie will get you flogged. If you liked ''The Last Jedi'', you are a Disney sycophant who approves of the [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks wholesale derailment of the franchise]] and all it stands for ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment not to mention]] the various [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical political]] arguments involved). If you hated ''The Last Jedi'', you are a salty rabid troll who fails to recognize the [[TrueArtIsAngsty prestigious artistic merit of the boldest movie in the franchise]] and wants ''Star Wars'' to [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks stagnate]] ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment not to mention]], again, the various [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical political]] arguments involved).
