* The writers gave us the line "Jar Jar, you're a genius," and actually made it ''credible''. See the monumental moment [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0122.html here]].
* The point in Phantasmal Malevolence when [[SuddenlyVoiced Maul starts to talk]], leading neatly to the [[GoodAllAlong reveal]] of his true allegiance. Up until then the story had, with a few variants, been basically EpisodeI. And then Maul suddenly turns everything on it's head, catching readers off guard.
* Quite possibly topped by this: [[ARareSentence "I never thought anyone would ever say this,]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0325.html but suddenly Jar Jar is disturbing."]]
* Sally [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0347.html talking back to the railroading Pete]]. [[ShutUpHannibal "I don't care about your stupid stats!"]]
* Annie [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0351.html beats Pete at his own game]].
-->'''Annie:''' You haven't forgotten the + 1 bonus, right?\\
'''Pete:''' What bonus?\\
'''Annie:''' [[ChekhovsGun The morale bonus.]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0342.html For watching R2 fly]].\\
''[[BeatPanel (beat)]]''\\
'''Pete:''' ... Right.
* [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0396.html "En passant!"]]
* [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0400.html In the Force Arm Wrestling Contest,]] Sally's [[spoiler: "I lift the entire planet!". And she actually gets away with it on a technicality.]]
* General Grievous: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0472.html "Air is for suckers."]]
** [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0531.html "I see you have no wings. Let me show you mine."]]
* Annie goes from drama queen [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0104.html to]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0105.html total]] [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0106.html badass]].
** Then, Annie, now playing [[KidsAreCruel Anakin]], talks [[{{Munchkin}} Pete]] [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0192.html into blowing up the trade federation ship]].
** Forget all that. Jim managed to construct a massive plan - and ensure that [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0098.html every decision made at every level of this plan's construction was as]] [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0103.html stupid and self-destructive as it could have been]] - [[CrazyAwesome and it]] [[CrazyEnoughToWork works.]] Partly due to the fact that Annie is [[BatmanGambit also awesome.]]
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0553.html Awesome plan, indeed.]]
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0557.html "Has that made you angry? I think it's made you angry."]]
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0569.html Politicians have to make the tough decisions.]]
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0604.html Jim]] [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0605.html roleplaying the scene]] [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0606.html where Anakin]] [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0607.html force-strangles Padme.]] For once, he's perfectly in character, completely serious, with no silly talk about loot or XP. His roleplaying is so superb that ''[[TheRoleplayer Annie]]'' actually asks him to stop for a moment, [[Heartwarming/DarthsAndDroids just to tell him how much she loves him for it.]]
* The DarkestHour of Episode III comes when Obi-Wan is the only thing standing between the antagonists and victory, not because he's the only player still alive, but because the other players are willing to allow the galactic conquest to happen since they'll be in a position of power when it does.
-->'''R2-D2:''' For crying out loud, Ben. The rest of us are okay with ruling the Galaxy. What part of that don't you like?\\
'''Obi-Wan:''' I wrote "Good" on my character sheet and I jolly well meant it! Unlike some people!
* [[IAmTheNoun "I]] '''[[IAmTheNoun am]]''' [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0626.html the legend."]]
* The whole segment with Pete's [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0629.html special die]].

[[folder: [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0630.html Die armed ]]
* The last line from Episode III:
-->'''Obi-Wan:''' [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0656.html I have a good feeling about this.]]
* We finally see [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0670.html Summon Bigger Fish!]]
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0688.html Sally]] finally [[BerserkButton blows up]] at Pete after 6-8 years of Pete verbally abusing Ben.
* [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0683.html As Pete and Sally flee in the escape pod]], the Imperial gunners, unlike in the movie, are smart enough to realize that droids can pilot a ship without giving off life readings and are about to fire...only to discover [[OutGambitted something's short-circuited their guns.]]
-->'''Artoo:''' Oh, yeah, baby.
* Pete BriarPatching Corey into [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0706.html removing Artoo's restraining bolt]]. What's really awesome is that Pete could successfully argue that the bolt's MindControl would make Artoo earnestly plead not to have the bolt removed. The GM seems to be fully aware of this.
-->'''Corey:''' I take it. What happens?\\
'''GM:''' Pete just earned 50 XP.
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0719.html Ben's return]]. After spending a few sessions MIA, Ben finally returns. With a BadassBeard to boot!
* Without missing a beat or trying to convince Corey, [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0726.html Ben manages to persuade him in-character to not only let Sally and Pete go but also pursue the greater plot of the session in a search for his true identity.]]
* [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0774.html The planet that Vader destroys]] not being Alderaan, but [[spoiler: '''''NABOO'''''.]] They manage to write the sequence of strips before it, revealing the [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0772.html identity of Vader early]] (actually surprising people), making [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0773.html Tarkin a good guy]] opposed to this (again surprising the crap out of everyone reading the strips) and actually making this sequence go from "We knew this was coming" to a very heartwrenching, "He... he didn't?" moment because for the Darths and Droids readers, [[spoiler: Naboo]] is has been a place they've become emotionally attached to. Oh. And ''' [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0771.html JAR JAR]] WAS ON THE PLANET.''' Pete says it best.
--> '''[[EveryoneHasStandards Pete]]:''' ''"[[PunctuatedForEmphasis You.]] [[TranquilFury Utter.]] [[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica Frakking.]] [[ItsPersonal Bastard.]]"''
* The GM gets one in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0778.html episode 778]], when his and the players' characters are playing [[ShowWithinAShow a game within a game]]: he [[GenreSavvy predicted]] that [[{{Munchkin}} Pete's/R2-D2's]] character would backstab his/Chewbacca's character at the first chance and loot his corpse, [[spoiler:so he made sure it would backfire on him by putting a cursed item in his own coin purse.]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Chewbacca:''' Let's discuss how you're going to pay for my resurrection, shall we?]]
* The GM gets another one in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0796.html episode 796]] when Pete declares that he's going to hit the back doors he'd installed on the Peace Moon despite not being around there at all. He triggers an alarm doing so and the next episode has him constantly triggering one alarm after another.
* [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0814.html Sally]] [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0820.html escapes]] the Clone Troopers with Pete...[[CrazyAwesome using knock knock jokes.]]
* [[DitzyGenius Jim's]] AwesomenessByAnalysis saving the party in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0822.html episode 822]].
** To put this in perspective, Jim, the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} of the group, managed to brace a trash compactor with the very trash it was ''designed to compress'', even though Annie had already pointed out how impractical that would be.
* Corey (playing as Luke) decides to [[spoiler:hold his ground against the Imperial walkers]] [[HonorBeforeReason while everybody else is fleeing for their lives]]. The GM has previously killed off Player Characters without flinching, so [[PlotArmor plot armor]] wonít save him. He not only [[spoiler:[[OneManArmy survives the assault on his own]]]], he [[spoiler: ''kills every last walker'' in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0981.html a rampage that shakes the foundations of the base]]]].
-->'''[[spoiler:Luke]]:''' [[spoiler:''(over the radio)'' Come on, you too! Oh, you want some of this?]]
-->''[[spoiler:(Explosions from Luke's rampage cease)]]''
-->'''[[spoiler:Leia]]:''' [[spoiler:Luke! Are you okay?]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Luke]]:''' [[spoiler:''(over the radio)'' I killed them. I killed them all.]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Artoo]]:''' [[spoiler:[[BigNo Noooooo!]]]]
* The revelation that Jim has been [[spoiler: ObfuscatingStupidity the entire time since he was staying in character and wanted to convincingly roleplay his character as a guy who always comes up with idiotic schemes]].
* The fact that [[spoiler: Jim/Han]] was [[TheMole The Mole]] and had given the Empire information on all Rebel activities, and was the reason they escaped the [[ThatsNoMoon Peace Moon]], and even the droid situation on Hoth. [[ManipulativeBastard Give this guy a medal!]] And for [[UpToEleven bonus points]], give [[spoiler: Ben]] a medal too. Not bad for [[ObfuscatingStupidity Obfuscating Stupidity!]]
* Lando decieves Vader and Boba Fett into thinking that Han has been killed by the carbon freezing procedure, saving Leia and giving him an opportunity to rescue her, Chewie and C-3PO and escape.
* The writers wished to make TheReveal as powerful as it had been back in the theaters -- they wanted the readers to feel what those having watched the film had felt, back in 1980, upon witnessing one of the greatest twists in movie history. [[spoiler: They succeeded.]]
** Immediately after, Vader tells Luke that WeCanRuleTogether. Luke's response?
--->'''Luke''': Heh, I'm perfectly positioned to choose. [[OutOfTheFryingPan Between the frying pan and the fire]]... [[ShutUpHannibal I choose... fire]]. You're not the boss of me! ''[[spoiler: MUM!]]''
* A two-parter: Not only has Pete apparently been writing an internally-consistent language for the beep sound-effect program for his phone since Episode I, Ben has ''actually been paying attention to this and taking detailed notes.'' This comes in handy near the end of Episode V when [[spoiler:Ben is able to tell that R2's beeps don't match what Pete is saying and he realizes that [[GrandTheftMe Nute Gunray is still possessing him]].]]
** [[spoiler: And then he tricks Gunray into plugging into the Falcon, which recently had a very powerful anti-virus program installed, freeing Artoo.]]
* Cory (Luke) gets a big one in 1261. When the party is captured and about to be dumped into the Sarlacc Pit, Artoo (Pete) launches a Lightsaber towards Lando (an allied NPC) for him to use. After being maimed by a Laser Sword in cloud city, Cory (Luke) has developed a deep fear of such weapons, and correctly surmises that Lando will kill himself while attempting to use it. He immediately overcomes his paranoia, engages in a series of acrobatic stunts that nearly dump him into the pit, grabs the sword himself, and proceeds to kick ass with a weapon he is deeply afraid of.
** And the best part is, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1269.html Pete planned on this all along]].
* Back in ''Phantasmal Malevolence'' and ''Silence of the Clones'': THE ENTIRETY of the webcomic's take on [[Main/GoodAllAlong Darth]] [[Main/PrivateDetective Maul]], [[Main/ChaoticNeutral Jango]] [[Main/RoaringRampageOfRevenge Fett]], [[Main/BadassFamily Zam Wesell, and Boba Fett]] is '''really ''insanely'' awesome'''.
** Ditto General Grevious, though not to the same extent. The comic generally seems to have a habit of taking the more interesting characters from the movies and making them even more so.
* [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/1383.html 1383]]: While captured by the Ewoks--who in this incarnation are [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts greedy disciples of Nute Gunray]]--Sally manages not only to trick them into believing that C-3PO ''is'' Gunray & into releasing the party, but also to convince them to fight the approaching Imperials to defend capitalism.
