** Riyo Chuchi didn't show up often, but her being a golden eyed BlueSkinnedSpaceBabe with a South African accent and played by Creator/JenniferHale made her stand out from the crowd. And yes, she's often shipped with Ahsoka.

** If anything, this series has made Anakin Skywalker\Darth Vader into a bigger JerkassWoobie retroactively. Not only do we have the deaths of [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Qui-Gon]], [[Film/AttackOfTheClones his mother]], and [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Padmé]], but now we see how the Jedi Council's treatment of Ahsoka in [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS5E20TheWrongJedi "The Wrong Jedi"]] badly effected him, and how he was rightfully furious over their refusal to make him a Master. Add to her departure, Anakin is left with one less MoralityPet in the Jedi Order. In Season Six, it gets even worse, as Fives dies in [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS6E4Orders "Orders"]] at the hands of Commander Fox. In the next arc, his relationship with Padme is damaged by the presence of Rush Clovis. In the unfinished animatics for the Utapau arc, he laments to Obi-Wan about what if he became a disappointment like Ahsoka. If there's anyone in the Star Wars universe who needed a hug, it's Anakin.

* HeReallyCanAct: This television series was full of fantastic performances, ranging from veteran voice actors ''Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor'' and ''Creator/DeeBradleyBaker'' to vocal newcomers like Matt Lanter and ''Creator/AshleyEckstein''.
** Special mention has to go to Dee Bradley Baker for differentiating all of the Clone Troopers with just slight variations in his voice (a good example of this is the Umbara arc, where Baker did [[TalkingToHimself most of the voice work]] for ''four episodes''), but Matt Lanter's performance as Anakin Skywalker earns a lot of points, to the point where it's seen as superior to ''Creator/HaydenChristensen'''s performance in the Prequel Trilogy.

** [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Wat Tambor]] (also in the second and third films), Foreman of the Techno Union and former Emir of Ryloth, is a vile force even among the Separatist Council. Using his position as Emir to oppress and starve the Twi'lek populace of Ryloth while having Resistance fighters massacred even after forcing them into surrender, Tambor responds to the Republic's attempts to liberate the planet by using Twi'lek people as [[HumanShield living shields]] to dissuade them from attacks. Tambor eventually gives up on the planet, ordering Twi'lek villages full of women and children wiped out and trying to [[KillEmAll firebomb the entire planet to wipe out it and its populace]] to spite the Republic, attempting to [[{{Greed}} make off with its riches]] to further salt the wound. As Foreman of the Techno Union, Tambor [[MadScientist leads horrendous experiments]] against sentient creatures on Skako Minor, using fallen Clone Echo as a living computer and [[AndIMustScream forcing him to experience the last moments before his "death" for months on end]] and trying to use his organic decimator to slaughter Anakin and the Bad Batch when they try and free him--testing its effects on a Poletec subject before them and cruelly dismissing it and Echo as mere Techno Union property. Vile, smug, and cowardly, Tambor endlessly spoils for others what he cannot have for himself and wreaks a uniquely long list of atrocities in his service to the Separatists.

** [[GeneralRipper General Pong Krell]], introduced in season 4, is a ruthless and treacherous [[FaceHeelTurn fallen Jedi]] who [[ItsAllAboutMe only cares for his own survival and benefit]]. Having foreseen that the Jedi will lose the Clone Wars, Krell sets out to sabotage their efforts in the Battle of Umbara to ingratiate himself with Count Dooku and become the Sith Lord's apprentice. Taking command of the 501st Legion, Krell, who [[FantasticRacism holds Clones in deep contempt]], forces his troops into disastrous battle plans designed to kill as many of them as possible. When Jesse and Fives disobey Krell's orders to carry out a successful mission, Krell, after initially deciding to have them court martialled, orders their execution. When the Clones refuse to follow this order, Krell engineers a battle between two batallions of Clones, claiming to each group that the other consists of enemy infiltrators, resulting in several deaths. Exposed as a traitor, Krell rampages through the Clones' ranks, violently killing many of them before being captured. When questioned, Krell admits that, in addition to his plan, he simply enjoyed manipulating and murdering Clones because he found them "inferior." When Rex prepared to execute him for his crimes, Krell taunted the Clone Captain, mocking his emotional turmoil. Sadistic, brutal, and {{smug|Snake}} to his final breath, Pong Krell is the perfect example of the corrupting influence of war upon the Jedi Order.

** A lot of people who liked the original ''Clone Wars'' series were worried that this would be inferior, and debates on the matter still can get heated. Fans of the old series often complain about TCW's lack of a cohesive narrative, Grievous not being badass enough, and lots of wasted potential, while fans of TCW claiming that the Genndy-series was ridiculously over-the-top, and that it didn't offer much story, and CharacterDevelopment wise.
** In turn the ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', is already getting some fire from fans for replacing ''The Clone Wars'', mostly due to fears that Disney won't allow the show to get nearly as dark and brutal as ''The Clone Wars'' could get sometimes. After the end of its first season most of these fears have been elevated, especially after the reveal of [[spoiler: Ahsoka]] as Fulcrum, and the show is starting to be considered a worthy successor.
