* AccidentalInnuendo:
** A different meaning than intended was read in [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0375.html this]] strip. (See [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/draakslair/viewtopic.php?t=4510 here]].)
** This moment after Jim's unusually skillful [[spoiler:roleplaying]]:
-->'''Jim/Padmé:''' That was my best [[spoiler:death]] ever!\\
'''Annie/Anakin:''' It was amazing. I've never felt so comfortable letting myself go [[spoiler:in character]] before. I never found anyone I could trust.\\
'''Padmé:''' Trust '''me.'''
* BetterThanCanon: The fact that it has much better story logic than the actual film really says something.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: This [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0395.html strip.]] Padme "dies" in the desert then we abruptly switch to screencaps of ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
* CargoShip: R2-D2 and his beloved dreadnought. Hilariously Pete apparently ships this ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice in-universe]]''
* ChaoticEvil: Pete claims that R2-D2 is ChaoticNeutral, but in practice he fits this alignment much better.
-->'''Ben/Obi-Wan''': Wait, Pete, when did you decide to be evil? ({{Beat}}) I can't believe I even said that.
* ComeForTheXStayForTheY: Come for the ''StarWars'' and TabletopRPG jokes, stay for the CharacterDevelopment as the players and GM become TrueCompanions.
* CrazyAwesome: Sally is moving into this, especially since she started playing Yoda.
** As far as [=NPC=] examples go, General Grievous ([[spoiler:A.K.A. Valorum]]) has been retooled into this.
*** ...which is brought to a whole new level as General Grevious ''[[WarriorPoet recites menacing poetry while trying to destroy Obi-Wan!]]''
** In ''Episode IV'' Jim plays Han Solo like this, [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0786.html with a huge emphasis on the "crazy" part]].
* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[spoiler: The Peace Moon blowing up Naboo]] results in way more BlackComedy than would be expect.
-->"Shore leave to Naboo has been canceled."
** There's also Darth Vader's treatment of Daine Jir:
-->'''Vader''': [[HeKnowsTooMuch Kill everyone who knows]].
-->'''Jir''': Oh my sir! Even ''[[TooDumbToLive me]]''.
-->'''Vader''': (Stares blankly at him for a moment) Yes.
** General Greivous's death, in which he quotes both Blade Runner and Citizen Kane while he's ''burning to death from the inside''.
* GeniusBonus: The fact that the Geonosis factory sequence was added in by Pete acting as a substitue GM is even funnier if one is aware that it wasn't part of the original movie script, but was added during production.
* JerkassWoobie: Jango Fett is reimagined into this.
* HilariousInHindsight: [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0045.html In this strip]], Jim is admonished about even thinking about wearing Amidala's dresses, just in case they had good armor class. Now Jim ''is playing'' Amidala.
** In a few Phantom Menace strips, Qui-Gon is obsessed with "casting Summon Bigger Fish". In StarWarsTheCloneWars, [[spoiler:Jar Jar does just that]] in one episode.
* HoYay: Darth Maul/Jango Fett.
* IKnewIt: The WMG that Jim plays Padmé when Qui-Gon dies.
** [[spoiler: Naboo is Mustafar. That is, there is no Mustafar, but Naboo takes its visuals.]]
** [[spoiler: Naboo is also Alderaan. That is, it's Naboo, not Alderaan, that's destroyed by the Death Star/Peace Moon in Episode IV]]
* MemeticMutation: Invoked. DMM encourages readers to spread "Jar Jar, you're a genius," across the net. As noted, the comic provided the ''very first instance of that sentence on the entire interweb.''
** Also, the "SummonBiggerFish" spell, which gained a good deal of popularity after the ''StarWarsTheCloneWars'' episode "Bombad Jedi".
--->"That Jedi has summoned a monster!"
*** And now it's gone the other way around, with screencaps from "Bombad Jedi" used for "SummonBiggerFish" [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0670.html here]].
* MagnificentBastard: In this version, it's ''Anakin'' who's manipulating everyone.
** Though some strips suggest that Palpatine isn't quite so far behind.
* MoralEventHorizon: Darth Vader crosses it [[spoiler: when he blows up Naboo with the Peace Moon.]]
* NightmareFuel: The revelation that Anakin is not only pure evil...[[spoiler: [[DarkMessiah but always has been.]]]]
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Jar Jar, who was originally [[TheScrappy the most hated character]] in all six movies. So much so that at least one reader actually hoped that the writers could [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/draakslair/viewtopic.php?t=2429&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 find a way to insert him into the other five movies.]] At the end of the Revenge of the Sith game [[http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0642.html Yoda notes that]] ''Jar Jar was the only one who wasn't acting like a fool''. Though this is kind of weakened by the fact Sally plays both Yoda and Jar Jar.
** The Irregulars note that they actually checked on the Internet, and the phrase "Jar Jar, you're a genius!" appeared precisely ''nowhere'' beforehand. Now it gets several hundred Website/{{Google}} hits.
** This was so well done that [[spoiler: when Vader blew up Naboo with the Peace Moon]], the forum's first reaction was [[spoiler:"Oh my god, he just killed Jar Jar! YouMonster!"]]
* TheScrappy: As admitted by WordOfGod and a complete inversion of the character as portrayed in the movies, there is an attempt to invoke this effect upon R2-D2. Whether or not this is successful will be left to the readers.
* TheStationsOfTheCanon: They still happen, sort of. Just not in the way that they originally played out.
* StopHelpingMe: Used by Annie against Pete on [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0443.html this page.]]
