Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Par for the course in Star Wars, but Thrawn is perhaps one of the most famous examples in the EU. He's charming, cunning, charismatic, and naturally pulls off RootingForTheEmpire.

* CantUnhearIt: After the character's appearance on ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', many fans have often found it hard not to read Thrawn's dialogue in the trilogy without hearing Lars Mikkelsen's voice in their head.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: The books produced at least three extremely popular characters - Thrawn, Mara and Talon Karrde, but the most surprising success story might be the relatively minor character of Pellaeon who would go on to much greater things.
** Thrawn was made a CanonImmigrant in Rebels probably due to his popularity.

things. Thrawn was eventually made a CanonImmigrant in Rebels ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' probably due to his popularity.



* HarsherInHindsight: Thrawn's treatment of the Noghri becomes this after Literature/OutboundFlight, where he, as a young officer, expresses some distaste for slavery.
** 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.

(And cue the TakeThat to this era of EU in ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' where it's explicitly stated the only weapon Thrawn ever needed was information.)



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

** Is Thrawn's analysis of art really how he comes to his conclusions or is it simply the myth of his own invincibility that he has created?

** C'baoth's claim that the Jedi were condemned and turned on by the galaxy as a whole when the Emperor was wiping them out is presented like just another part of his clone madness, but the prequels established that was more or less exactly what happened.

* 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:

** 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.
