** Ahsoka dresses in a skimpy costume and goes undercover as a slave for sale to Miraj Scintel, the Queen of Zygerria. The Queen admires her from every angle and remarks on her beauty. Anakin, posing as a slave trader, flirts with the Queen as well but she shows little interest in him.

** Wilhuff Tarkin is a colossal dick to everybody right off the bat, introduced in the Citadel Arc as [[ComplainingAboutRescuesYouDontLike badmouthing]] [[UngratefulBastard the Jedi]] while himself [[{{Hypocrite}} contributing nothing to the escape attempt.]] His return in the temple bombing arc, where he fixates on Ahsoka as the culprit [[KnightTemplar and refuses to accept evidence to the contrary]], only increases his hatedom, especially since the ForegoneConclusion means he'll never get any comeuppance. However, his role in the story is held up as an example of how to correctly develop an original-trilogy character's background, as well as nicely foreshadowing the Empire and Anakin's inevitable turn to the dark side.

** When it became clear that he was going to lose Ryloth in "Liberty on Ryloth", Count Dooku ordered the bombing of every Twi'lek village on the planet, just to send the galaxy a message about [[PyrrhicVictory "the cost of a Republic victory"]]. Wat Tambor also crosses it with that action, explicitly stating "the inhabited ones first." If Dooku didn't cross it then, he did when he murdered Mina Bonteri, who admired him, because she was open to negotiating with the Reupbclic.

*** Lok Durd crosses this when he threatens to torture Ban'tena Fhernan's family to death if she commits suicide instead of helping him.

** When it became clear that he was going to lose Ryloth in "Liberty on Ryloth", Wat Tambor ordered the bombing of every Twi'lek village on the planet - explicitly stating "the inhabited ones first" - just to send the galaxy a message about [[PyrrhicVictory "the cost of a Republic victory"]]. If he didn't cross it then, he crossed it when he performed inhumane experiments on sentient beings (even killing at least one of them) during the Bad Batch arc.

** Asajj Ventress flies past it on hyperdrive, when she goes to recruit an assassin against [[spoiler: Count Dooku]]. Particularly when she tests the brainwashing of the chosen candidate by ordering him to kill his brother. This strikes the viewer even harder, as before that Ventress was almost (sym)pathetic, due to her constant failures. Depending on how you want to look at it it is either a Subversion or a {{Double Subversion}} later, as she helps out Obi-Wan and Ahsoka, but asures that she will backstab them whenever it fits her and is still a criminal, just on her own side and not for the Seperatists anymore.

** The very first time Ahsoka met Cad Bane, he electrocuted her ''twice'' -first to knock her out, then just for the fun of it- and handcuffed her, with shackles that ''hurt the more you struggle''. Then he caressed her head in a rather creepy manner, before taking her Padawan Braid as a trophy. Much later, when Ahsoka protected an unconscious Anakin from him, he left, promising her a dance at an other time.

** At this point, a case could be made for Hondo Ohnaka as well. In his first appearance, he ended up capturing Count Dooku, Anakin, and Obi-wan, with all three of them conveniently [[ForgotAboutHisPowers forgetting about their powers]] when it comes to escape plans. And he was shown to be able to fight toe-to-toe with Anakin despite having no Force powers. Plus there's the fact that he repeatedly gets to either humiliate or chase off characters way above his own weight level like Darth Maul, General Grievous, and Savage Opress. And generally, he just seems to get off scot-free no matter how many crimes he commits or how many powerful people he pisses off. And even when misfortune does strike Hondo, such as his base being dismantled or his men being killed off by the Empire eventually, Hondo always seems to possess enough PlotArmor from the writers to ensure that he himself is always left unharmed despite these setbacks.

** Darth Maul's appearances in the series firmly establish him as a cold-blooded sociopath who cares nothing for murdering innocent people just to spite Obi-Wan. Nevertheless, he remains every bit as {{Badass}} as he was in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''.
