* HoYay: Pellaeon seems to admire Thrawn a good bit, respecting him and thinking of him in an arguably fond manner. He also takes [[spoiler: Thrawn's death]] pretty hard. For Thrawn's part, he seems to respect Pellaeon and makes an effort to keep him in the loop and explain things even when it's unecessary.

to:

** Luke's tendency to brush his hands across the ch'hala trees in the Grand Corridor of the Imperial Palace becomes this when you learn they're literally the ears of Thrawn's Delta Source. One can imagine a perturbed Imperial Intelligence technician ([[TheStoic or a mildly annoyed Grand Admiral Thrawn]]) listening to recordings of conversations involving Luke and complaining "stop tapping the mike!"

Added DiffLines:

** Han and Lando have a joking exchange about a particularly rough landing of the ''Falcon'', to which Han retorts that at least the sensor dish is still there. Lando replies that next time, he'll take down the shield while Han flies the ''Falcon'' down the Death Star's throat. Han muses that it really isn't all that funny, since if Thrawn manages to get back enough of the Empire's old resources, he might just try and build another of the damn things. Fast forward just a hair, and the Star Wars EU becomes positively littered with superweapons, both leftovers and new constructions.


Added DiffLines:

** Related to an above HarsherInHindsight, Han musing that Thrawn might try and build another Death Star if he can get the resources together becomes this in ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'', where Zahn through just about every character expresses complete distaste for AwesomeButImpractical superweapons, and states that Thrawn never had any interest in them, nor did he need them. . . Thrawn himself was the superweapon.

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

* RootingForTheEmpire: Admit it, if you read these books, you liked it when Thrawn kept winning.
* VillainSue: Thrawn is praised as a good villain but the amount of times he utterly out classes the heros, including Luke Skywalker one of if not the biggest BadAsses in all of fiction, is more than a little eyebrow raising.
** A good example happens in the first book when C3PO is voicing Leia 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. A really bad 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, and while there are other examples this one is really bad.
