* HoYay: Lando needs Luke's endorsement to find a bride.
* MoralEventHorizon: Thrackan, [[spoiler:holding Han and Leia's children hostage]]. Also an InUniverse example, as the Corellian culture values family loyalty. [[spoiler:This action inspires Dracmus' Mook Face Turn.]]
* TheScrappy: Thrackan. Even for a villain, he's hated. The fact that he [[spoiler: met his defeat at the hands of nine-year-old Jacen & Jaina and seven-year-old Anakin]] didn't exactly help to guarantee him a spot among the greatest EU villains of all time. Unlike most of his more well-regarded fellows, however, Thrackan ''did'' manage to stick around as a thorn in the heroes' side for ''years'' after these books, rather than getting killed off; he finally met his doom as the DiscOneFinalBoss of ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce''.
* WhatAnIdiot: The entire New Republic, at the very end, for simply not having Thrackan executed. He ended up returning to power ''twice.'' Fantastic work, Leia.
