* DressingAsTheEnemy: Valance attempts to escape capture by disguising himself as a stormtrooper.
* FailedASpotCheck: [[spoiler:Gita]] thought her Sand Person disguise was foolproof, as the religious customs of the Sand People[[note]]which forbids disrobing or even unmasking in the presence of outsiders[[/note]] mean that none of the "[[HiddenWire prove you're not wearing a wire]]" tricks will work. However, she forgot about another one of their traditions: Sand People '''never''' leave Tatooine on their own volition.

!!Tropes featured in this comic include:
*BoxedCrook: Part of the reason why Valance agrees to lead the team. It's implied that he's accrued some debts from paying for his cybernetics out of his own pocket, which has made him desperate enough to "scab" from the Bounty Hunter union. He takes the job not just out of a lucrative payday, but also from an offer of sanctuary.
*ColdSniper: Urrr'k.
-->'''Valance:''' I don't trust you. I do, however, trust your aim. If you see trouble, shoot it."
*CrazyEnoughToWork: About half of Valance's plans live and breathe on this.
-->'''Chio:''' Of course, Valance is insane. Personally, I like that in a captain.
*MilesGloriosus: RT-19 claims to be a highly efficient assassin droid who has killed Jedi who escaped Order 66. Turns out he's a complete phony. Seeing how he was "up to his bolts in debt to the Hutts," Jabba probably put him there to spy on the Hidden Hand.
*TheMole: [[spoiler: There are two in Valance's team. One is feeding information to Vader, the other is a Rebel spy.]]
*NoHonorAmongThieves: Something of AnAesop. Valance is scabbing the [[WeirdTradeUnion Bounty Hunter's Guild]], citing there is "no code among the dead", and a contact betrays him, pretty much telling him there are no friends in this business, only allies. It's even suggested that Valance ''[[BatmanGambit expected]]'' the contact to betray him.
*TeethClenchedTeamwork: Valance and Dengar.
