** It is revealed in ''Dark Lord of the Sith'' that [[spoiler:Quinlan Vos]] survived Order 66, like in ''Legends''. Unlike ''Legends'', however, as far as we know, he's not accompanied by the people he loves and he probably won't get to live the rest of his life in quietness. [[spoiler:His master, Tholme, has been long dead; T'ra Saa doesn't exist, and neither do his wife Khaleen and their newborn son Kortos; he might not even know who Vilmarh and Chak are]]. All he has to accompany him are the memories of [[spoiler:his late master, late Padawan, and late lover]].

** As before, Thrawn's full name, Mitth'raw'nuruodo is either joked about how it has the word "raw" in it or the last part sounds like "Manga/{{Naruto}}".

** In ''ComicBook/DarthVaderDarkLordOfThesith Dark Lord of the Sith]]'', it turns out that the Grand Inquisitor [[spoiler:fell because he was angry that the Jedi would never let him learn from the greater Jedi Archives, as he believed that he was of a high enough stature to deserve it. When he sees a Jedi Temple Guard uniform on display, [[WistfulAmnesia he begins to remember]], but walks away, bitterly saying that [[IHatePastMe he only remembers the lies of his past.]]]]

** In ''Bloodline'', it is revealed that Leia, unlike [[AllLovingHero Luke]], does not forgive Anakin/Vader. Unlike Luke, Leia has always had a mother and father, so she's had no reason to want anything more than that in her family. And even in death, Vader's influence inadvertently ruins her life in [[spoiler:ruining her reputation to the New Republic and taking her son (and indirectly, her husband) away from her]]. It's a contrast from ''Legends'', where she had closure with a Force-ghost of Anakin and even tried to redeem his name by [[DeadGuyJunior naming her son after him]] (which she realized also ended up stressing him out as he felt he had to live up to the name). But here, none of that except for [[spoiler:[[MyGreatestFailure her son]] turning to the Dark-side to be like his grandfather, just like her other son in ''Legends'']] happen. She at least accepts Padme, but [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim she does not understand how someone so strong, smart, and caring could fall for such an apathetic murderer]]. And since it's been fifty years and no one that knew Anakin personally is alive anymore ([[spoiler:except for Kix, but the likelihood of Kix and Leia ever meeting is low given their respective circumstances]]), and no one other than Anakin knows the story of his tragedy, no one will ever know who he really was and why he fell.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Captain Phasma became TheScrappy in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' for being hyped up by advertising to be the new [[EnsembleDarkhorse Boba Fett]], [[HypeBacklash only for]] her to be an AdvertisedExtra and her [[NeverLiveItDown most notable action]] in the film being a DirtyCoward [[NiceJobFixingItVillain that screws over Starkiller Base]] and gets thrown in the trash compartment to seemingly die as a result.

* SturgeonsLaw: The Lucasfilm Story Group is doing their best to ensure that this ''won't'' be the case for the new Expanded Universe, making sure that the new stories are all consistently good instead of vastly varying in terms of quality. That said, it hasn't stopped some works from being less-regarded than others.

* ArchivePanic: Averted if you're going by Disney's new Expanded Universe instead of the positively colossal ''Legends'' one. You shouldn't have too much of a problem keeping up with all the new material... for now, that is.

You shouldn't have too much of a problem keeping up with all the new material... for now, that is. That said, it's been going a few years now, and several novels have already been released, so if it doesn't qualify yet, it's most certainly going to.
