YMMV / Jedi Apprentice

  • Moment of Awesome: Qui-Gon tames a draigon and rides it just by thinking hard at it.
  • Faux Symbolism: Guerra and Paxxi's names. No, one is not warlike and the other a pacifist, nor do they have any kind of rivalry or otherwise opposing personalities. They both act like Loveable Rogues, in fact.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Siri Tachi's name became a bit funny after Apple named the iPhone's personal assistant program "Siri". And with Microsoft calling their Windows Phone's personal assistant program "Cortana", we now have two talking smartphone applications named after science-fiction characters.
    • Memetic Mutation: A meme is frequently passed around of an anguished looking Obi-Wan taken from Revenge of the Sith with the caption "Bought an iPhone just so he could talk to Siri again."
  • Informed Wrongness: Pretty much every mention of the Melida/Daan incident and Obi-Wan leaving the Jedi to help them afterward is portrayed as the wrong choice for Obi-Wan to have made in both Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest, despite the fact that his intervention greatly helped put an end to a planet wide centuries long war and the fact that Qui-Gon all but forced him to leave by putting him in one hell of a Sadistic Choice.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Xanatos comes close at times, though he fails in the end. The stunt he pulls in Day Of Reckoning in which he sets up a lottery to distract the citizens of Telos from his mining operations, then uses said profits to pay for the mining is a thing of beauty. In effect, he gets the Telosians to pay for the destruction of their own planet, while keeping them pacified with Bread and Circuses, and remaining the most respected man on Telos. And then there's his attempt at blowing up the Jedi Temple and stealing the treasury. His only problem is his inability to cope when his plans go badly. This ultimately leads to his death in Day Of Reckoning.
  • Uncanny Valley: Happens on the book covers more than once, thanks to wonky CG alterations of Ewan McGregor's face to appear younger. Paradoxically, he sometimes gains wrinkles in this process.
