** [[HerrDoktor Dr.]] Nuvo [[AxCrazy Vindi]] is the MonsterOfTheWeek for the season 1 two-parter " [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E17BlueShadowVirus Blue Shadow Virus]]" and "[[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E18MysteryOfAThousandMoons Mystery of a Thousand Moons]]", and the MadScientist who recreated the titular virus, a disease that kills all who contract it and which no lifeform is immune to, after it had been wiped from the galaxy. Vindi not only brought the virus back, he converted it to an airborne strain so it could spread more easily. Vindi's ultimate plan is to send a virus-laden bomb to each key Republic star system, [[PlagueMaster creating a galaxy-wide plague that could kill entire planetary populations]]. When his operation is put at risk by the Republic, Vindi just decides to prematurely activate the bombs while they're still on world, with the intention of [[OmnicidalManiac killing everyone on Naboo]], [[TakingYouWithMe himself included]]. Though hired by the Separatists to perform these actions, it's clear that Vindi takes great joy in his work, and [[MoralMyopia sees unleashing the revived virus as passing judgement on the galaxy that once "murdered" it]].

** [[spoiler: Pong Krell is very contemptuous towards the clones serving under him and a massive SmugSnake even before being outed as a villain. Very few will deny that what he did throughout the Umbara arc (especially "Carnage of Krell") was absolutely despicable. However, fans like him as a character both before and after [[EvilAllAlong his true colors are revealed]] precisely because of this, providing not only a good obstacle for the clones from a narrative standpoint, but also demonstrating the corruption of war on the Jedi Order. And his death at the hands of Dogma was incredibly cathartic.]]
** Wilhuff Tarkin is a colossal dick to everybody right off the bat, introduced in the Citadel Arc as [[UngratefulBastard badmouthing 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.

** [[spoiler: Dogma]] Dogma, who was fanatically backing every one of General Krell's orders [[YesMan to the point of sycophancy]], becomes one at the end of the Umbara arc.arc. He just wanted to be a good soldier, but as a mere rookie at the time of Umbara, he was unknowingly played by a manipulative and treacherous commanding officer. Once he finds out the cold truth, he is a very broken man, and he gets taken into custody for his complicity in Krell's subterfuge even after putting the bullet in him at the end.

** Some of the story arcs written by Christian Taylor (particularly the Mortis trilogy and the Yoda arc) were most likely written to re-mystify the Force after the Prequels were accused of [[DoingInTheWizard demystifying it with the introduction of midi-chlorians]]. While the Mortis trilogy was deliberately mysterious while "Destiny" put a bit more clarification on what midi-chlorians actually are (the link between the living Force and the cosmic Force rather than the cause of the Force itself) and giving them an even more mysterious homeworld. The latter even included a slight jab at the accusations, with the Serene Priestess describing them as "what your science calls 'midi-chlorians'" to Yoda.

** "Ambush", the first episode, contains three. After complaints of Yoda's readiness to fight and crazy lightsaber-flipping in ''Attack of the Clones'', he's shown playing a TricksterMentor to the clones who only fights once in the entire episode (and it's more or less to show off). After complaints of the Republic army being expendable clones, the episode focuses primarily on how they're not, and do have unique personalities despite being batch-grown. And after complaints about [[SpaceJews Watto's design and personality]], his people are depicted averting PlanetOfHats and being nothing like him.

** In the Season 3 Citadel-trilogy Stephen Stanton voiced Captain Tarkin, who was on the run from a Separatist prison, chased by the prison warden Osi Sobeck, a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Phindian phindian]], voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor. Aiding Tarkin in the escape was Obi-Wan Kenobi, also voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor. Almost exactly a season later in the Deception-arc, Stephen Stanton voiced Moralo Eval, a phindian on the run from a Republic prison, aided (and secretly thwarted) by Rako Hardeen, who was also voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor.

* PanderingToTheBase: David Filoni acknowledged the negative reaction from the first half of the third season (which was focused on heavily on politics, trade blockades, bank interests, and stuff like that) and said that the amount of such episodes will be severely cut down.
