** Stephen Stanton confirmed that he based his voice for AP-5 on Creator/AlanRickman - specifically, his take on [[Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Marvin]]. Thanks to the AnimationLeadTime, the episode featuring AP-5's debut ended up airing a few months after the death of Rickman in January 2016, functioning as a sort of unintended tribute to the late actor.

** Despite the transient nature of their meeting (not to mention it's DoomedByCanon -- one way or another), Leia/Ezra has a few fans.

** Despite the transient nature of their meeting (not to mention it's DoomedByCanon -- one way or another), Leia/Ezra has a few fans. Of course, some fan play with that by having Ezra show up as an [[AmicableExes Amicable Ex]] post-ANH.

* VanillaProtagonist: A common criticism of the series is that Ezra, while a decent character in his own right, is simply not as cool or interesting a character as [[BigBrotherMentor Kanan]], [[BadassInCharge]], [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Sabine]], [[KnightInSourArmor Zeb]], [[BadassGrandpa Rex]], or [[KidHeroAllGrownUp Ahsoka]], though his interesting mentor relationship with [[spoiler: Darth Maul]] is considered to rectify this somewhat.

** The lothcats/tookas for their giant round heads, flat facial features, and giant monstrous mouth.

** The lothcats/tookas for their giant round heads, flat facial features, and giant monstrous mouth. Other than that, [[CuteKitten they're just like any other domestic cat on Earth]].



** From the same planet as the krykna, the hermit-crab like [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dokma dokma]] are considered by Zeb to be annoying pests. However, their timid nature and that the krykna prey on them ends up making them endearing.



** Many did not like how Ahsoka's facial appearance made her look like she was a different Togruta completely than the Togrutan Padawan that was one of the protagonists of ''The Clone Wars''. The reason for the lack of resemblance is because for ''Rebels'', she was [[InkSuitActor modeled after the voice actor]], Ashley Eckstein, but that still doesn't excuse the strange change and also raised a BrokenBase question regarding who would hypothetically play adult Ahsoka.

** [[WordOfGod Filoni]] revealing Kallus's first name is [[spoiler:[[TomTheDarkLord Alexander, or "Alex"]] for short]] immediately became a source of laughs out of both HolyShitQuotient and NarmCharm. Tracy Cannobeo later clarifying that the spelling is [[spoiler:Alexsandr]] immediately prompted jokes about calling him [[GenderBlenderName "Sasha"]][[note]]The Russian nickname for [[spoiler:Aleksandr]]'s and variants, derived from the "-ksa"/"-xsa" sound produced.[[/note]], how Anakin hates sand, and that Kallus has a name shared by many a ''Star Wars'' fan.

Added DiffLines:

** [[WordOfGod What is Kallus's first name?]] [[spoiler:[[TomTheDarkLord Alexander]]]]. It's... rather plain for ''Star Wars'' (though not the first time a rather common name from real life has been used, ex. Luke, John[[note]]D. Branon.[[/note]]...), though it's fittingly sophisticated considering Kallus from the Core Worlds. Somewhat alleviated in that it's spelled using the Russian variant, [[spoiler:Alexsandr]], which makes it more "exotic" for ''Star Wars'', though it hasn't stopped the [[MemeticMutation jokes]] about it. Though most are glad that he actually ''has'' a first name and that it isn't non-descript/ridiculous like "Sheev".

** Hera/Baron Valen Rudor, Ahsoka/Zeb, and Jai/Ezra have also being discussed, despite the former two ''never interacting onscreen''.

** Kallus/Lyste, which apparently was fueled by the two being the [[OnlySaneMan only sane men]] in the Imperial cast when Lyste was revealed to be a [[HypercompetentSidekick hypercompetent]] in "A Princess On Lothal" (and neither of them had even shared screentime yet until Season 3). [[HistoryRepeats Similarly to Kallus/Tua]], their interaction ended rather awkwardly ([[DownplayedTrope though not as crushing due to the different circumstances this time]]) by the end of "Through Imperial Eyes", the episode with the most interaction between the two officers.
