** A good example happens in the first book when C3PO is voicing Lelia and Thrawn deduces out of more or less nothing that it's a droid because that would be "logical". It's a pretty blatant AssPull to show what a good villain he is but its really just lazy writing.

* VillainSue: As good a villain as Thrawn is he can stretch beliveability a bit too much at times.

It's a pretty blatant AssPull to show what a good villain he is but its really just lazy writing, and while there are other examples this one is really bad.

* VillainSue: As good a villain as Thrawn is praised as a good villain but the amount of times he can stretch beliveability utterly out classes the heros, including Luke Skywalker one of if not the biggest BadAsses in all of fiction, is more than a bit too much at times. little eyebrow raising.

** Joruus' fondness for controlling and moulding people is pretty creepy in general, but it gets extra disturbing when Thrawn buys his loyalty by promising to give Joruus Leia's children, who are yet unborn.

* HilariousInHindsight: Luuke being an insane clone of Luke Skywalker becones especially ironic when one remembers that Luke Skywalker's film actor, MarkHamill, ends up voicing SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, who is an incredibly insane supervillain.

* {{Narm}}: Seriously, ''[[UnfortunateNames Luuke]]?'' You couldn't come up with ''anything'' better, Thrawn?

*** If his forward to the Thrawn Trilogy Sourcebook for the RPG (West End Games d6 version) is to be believed, he was fairly put out when all the new research material arrived at his doorstep, fearing it would undermine what he'd already figured out. Turned out to be a great boon, since whenever he needed a particular kind of ship or piece of technology, odds are it had already been detailed in one of the RPG books. One wonders if Thrawn's masterful use of Interdictor cruisers was already thought out and the books just gave him the name, or inspired by their write-up in the RPG manuals.

* MagnificentBastard: Thrawn is as adept a master manipulator as Palpatine was, and a ''better'' military strategist and tactician than Vader or anyone else in the galaxy. Not surprising, as Zahn partially based him on [[UsefulNotes/ErwinRommel the original Magnificent Bastard]].
