** Cad Bane is a master of this from the get-go, managing to successfully take the Galactic senate hostage, break Ziro out of prison, and get away completely scot-free in his ''[[EstablishingCharacterMoment first]]'' episode. From that point onwards, his plans get crazier and clever as they go on, from disguising himself as a clone trooper and hiding aboard a dropship of ''[[RefugeInAudacity actual clones]], leading two Jedi masters into a booby-trapped ''[[CrazyPrepared space station]]'', to breaking out of prison ''again'' by instigating no less than Boba Fett himself into starting a riot......Every time he appears, he one-ups his previous insane plan, and almost every time, he gets away.

** [[BigBad Chancellor Palpatine, aka Darth Sidious]], is the instigator of the Clone Wars and the Dark Lord of the Sith. Desiring an army of Force-users to serve his will, Sidious hired Cad Bane to kidnap [[WouldHurtAChild Force-sensitive infants]], so that Sidious could perform horrific and potentially fatal experiments upon them, [[LackOfEmpathy coldly disregarding their possible deaths]]. When he felt that Asajj Ventress was growing too powerful, Sidious commanded Count Dooku to kill her, ignoring his protests and mockingly praising his apprentice for his "loyalty" when Dooku believed that he had carried out the order. Later, after deciding that his former apprentice, Darth Maul, had grown too powerful, Sidious attacked him on Mandalore, brutally murdering Maul's brother, Savage Opress, and sadistically [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing]] Maul himself into submission, later [[ComicBook/DarthMaulSonOfDathomir using Maul]] in a plot to kill Mother Talzin. When Fives discovered Order 66, Palpatine had him drugged into insanity to prevent the truth from being revealed, a plan which ended in Fives's death. When Yoda sets out on a vision quest, Sidious takes the opportunity to try and destroy the vulnerable Jedi Master, using Sith sorcery in an attempt to corrupt and kill Yoda. As always, Darth Sidious is a malevolent, sadistic monster who employs exceptionally cruel methods in his quest for power.

** The music throughout "Trespass" is excellent, doing a great job of conveying the intense drama of the tensions between the Talz and Republic soldiers, and lending surprising pathos to the death of [[spoiler: [[AlasPoorVillain Chairman Cho]] before culminating in the dramatic final confrontation between Thi-Sen and Senator Chuchi.

** Ahsoka saves Tarkin in "Citadel Rescue" from being killed at the hands of a Separatist general. Guess what Tarkin would go on to do to Alderaan in A New Hope...

** General Grievous. Is his portrayal in this series the right balance between his characterizations in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars''? Or [[NeverLiveItDown is he still just as (if not more than) pathetic]] as he was in ROTS? And then there's the authenticity of the victories he does achieve.
** Out of all the series' retcons to Expanded Universe material, one of the most highly contested is its depiction of the Mandalorians. Is the idea of a ProudWarriorRace culture turning pacifistic a serious case of BadassDecay for them and an insult to how other writers have developed them (also not helped by the fact that what seems to be the only remnants of the warrior culture are a [[KnightTemplar fanatically bloodthirsty terrorist cult]])? Or is it a much-needed [[RealityEnsues reality check]] for the historical progression of the culture (as well as how the warrior culture would be viewed by outsiders) after [[Creator/KarenTraviss Karen Traviss's]] [[Literature/RepublicCommando depiction]] [[MarySuetopia of it]] proved controversial even to some ''Legends'' fans. Even after [[spoiler: the New Mandalorian government came crumbling down near the end of the series]], this series' depiction (as well as the current canon's) of Mandalorians is still contested territory, and the Legends decision (which, until the reintroduction of the Protectors in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', effectively erased almost all aspects of the old Mandalorian from canon) didn't help this debate very much.

*** In "Eminence" and "Shades of Reason", he led a band of Mandalorian warriors and in the course of two episodes, completely owned the Hutts and Black Sun, in addition to taking over all of Mandalore. In previous ExpandedUniverse works, it's pretty much been established that going up against the Hutts or Black Sun (much less both at once) is more or less suicide, which makes it all the more impressive that Darth Maul took them both down one after another and made them his vassals. In short, no other Star Wars character in the past has accomplished a feat as awesome as what Darth Maul did by defeating the Hutt clans and Black Sun in such a brutal and effective fashion.

Granted a lot of those older EU works where the Hutts and Black Sun are practically undefeatable(unless you're Luke, Leia, or Han) are now non-canon thanks to the Disney buyout but it's still pretty impressive how he was able to bring to heel two of the most powerful criminal organizations in the galaxy and take over Boba Fett's planet.
