** The Fetts, Boba in particular considering he stands up to Vader and looks very cool, but suffered an anti-climatic death scene, making him an odd case where different parts of the fandom see him as both a MemeticBadass ''and'' a MemeticLoser (the latter largely as a backlash to the former).

** The Fetts, Boba in particular considering Fett, almost entirely because he stands looks really badass. In fact, there's very little onscreen evidence that he even remotely lives up to his fandom reputation. He captures Han because Vader and looks very cool, but suffered an anti-climatic death scene, making does it for him an odd case where different parts in ''Empire Strikes Back'' and, in ''Return of the fandom see him as both Jedi'', he infamously suffers a MemeticBadass ''and'' a MemeticLoser (the latter largely as a backlash to pathetic, anti-climactic death. In fact, George Lucas was unaware of the former). character's reception until after finishing the trilogy, and later created Jango Fett, who is legitimately badass onscreen, in response.

* DeathOfTheAuthor: [[CreatorBacklash The reason why George Lucas finally gave up with doing anything related to Star Wars, because every single mistake in the franchise is blamed onto him, the Creator of the entire franchise in the first place!]]. Particularly pertaining to the changes made in the various re-releases and various aspects of the prequels. It's easily one of the biggest [[BrokenBase Base Breakers]] of the entire franchise and a significant turn-off to hardcore fans.

** Anakin's fanbase vs. hatedom is evenly split between those who liked or hated the prequels. Both sides will praise his portrayal in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' through. Surprisingly, his legendary future self - Darth Vader - has also become a minor example, due to the Disney-era movies [[CharacterShilling shilling his character to some extent]] (''Film/TheForceAwakens'' makes a point of Kylo Ren [[ToughActToFollow not being able to live up to his predecessor]], while ''Film/RogueOne'' paints Vader as a terrifying, larger-than-life figure to an even greater degree than the original trilogy did). For a while, there was some backlash over Darth Vader's page on [[TheWikiRule Wookieepedia]] being merged into [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Anakin_Skywalker Anakin's page]] for canon reasons, due to prequel Anakin being a BaseBreakingCharacter while original trilogy Vader was one of the most universally beloved characters in the franchise. Possibly in response to this, TheOtherWiki [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darth_Vader merged both versions of the character into Vader's page]] due to Vader being the more well-known form in popular culture.

* ArchivePanic: The Star Wars franchise is one of the biggest media franchises around--it consists of seven movies (with three more on the way), numerous spin off films and animated cartoon series, a monstrous amount of comic books, comic strips, books and novels (Wikipedia lists at least ''303'' books total), over 120 video game tie ins and other misc. material (I.e. The radio and audio dramas, and enough toys and merchandise to fill the Executor). And new content is still being made to this day, and after [[LongRunner 39 years]], it is showing no signs of stopping.

* {{Woolseyism}}: In Latin America, R2-D2's name is sometimes pronounced as "Arturito" (Little Arthur), which has a similar prononciation as "Artoo-Ditoo", and it has been quite popular.

** WordOfGod states that C-3PO was originally intended to be a smarmy used car salesman, but as anyone who's seen him in any of the movies will tell you, his personality sure doesn't match that. Along comes ''Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger'', which features a C-3PO expy named Balance, who has the exact personality that would match up with the type of personality that C-3PO's original intended career would likely have needed.

* {{Applicability}}: With as much impact as the series has had on popular culture, people have found ways to relate ''Star Wars'', especially the films' elaborate political backdrop, to pretty much every aspect of everyday life. The Prequels, for instance, are often analyzed as a satire of the United States' liberal-conservative divide, and the UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush Presidency in particular.

** "Look at the ''size'' of that thing!"
** "Judge me by my size, do you?" For Episode II, they even made a poster with Yoda on it that says "Size matters not", although that might have even been an intentional innuendo.

** And on a more [[MemeticMutation memetic]] note, there is [[AssShove "He is in my behind!"]] from the TranslationTrainWreck, JustForFun/BackstrokeOfTheWest.
** Its [[FanSequel Fan Sequels]], WebOriginal/TheStarWarGatherings, are no better.
