* RetroactiveIdiotBall: Han and Leia choosing to pass on the Solo name rather than the Organa name never made a ton of sense considering that Alderaan was a [[{{Matriarchy}} matriarchal society]] and Organa is the name of a royal house and of one of the few remaining Alderaanian bloodlines, but it makes even less sense after ''{{Film/Solo}}'' revealed that Solo wasn't even Han's original last name and was given to him as a placeholder by an ''Imperial officer''.

Added DiffLines:

* ParryingBullets: Kylo uses his lightsaber to parry Rey's lasergun fire during their encounter at the forrest on Takodana.


* BridalCarry: After Kylo Ren corners Rey in the forest on Takodana and learns that she already saw the map that BB-8 has, he uses the Force to render her unconscious before carrying her back to his ship this way.



* MindRape: Kylo Ren forces his way into Poe's mind, an experience that is worse than all the torture Poe had endured up to that point. He does a cursory scan of Rey when he first captures her, learning that she's seen the map. It's [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] and ultimately [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] when Kylo tries to do a deeper probe back at Starkiller Base. She blocks him and reads his mind to discover his fear of not being as evil as Darth Vader.

Added DiffLines:

* TouchOfTheMonster: The masked Kylo Ren freezes the visibly terrified Rey in place, invades her mind, then knocks her unconscious to capture her for [[MindProbe further interrogation]]. He opts to carry her in his arms into his ship while Finn yells her name, unable to prevent the abduction.

Added DiffLines:

* BackingAwaySlowly: In one scene, two Stormtroopers walk in on Kylo Ren having a fit and both slowly walk away.


* DramaPreservingHandicap: Before the climactic fight scene between Kylo Ren and Finn and Rey, Ren takes a bowcaster bolt to the abdomen and is shown to be bleeding from the wound, so that it's more realistic someone with zero formal training with a lightsaber or the Force (Finn isn't even force-sensitive) could stand a chance against him. Kylo's reaction when Finn actually scores a minor hit on him, and how thoroughly he [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomps]] Finn right afterwards, also suggests that even with his wound he wasn't taking the fight seriously before then.

Added DiffLines:

** During the briefing before the attack on Starkiller Base, the Resistance wonders desperately how they'll stop it. Han points out that these giant doomsday weapons ''always'' have some exploitable weak point -- remembering the two Death Stars -- and is quickly proven right.
** The moment the Resistance X-wings attack the Starkiller Base, Hux orders all TIE fighter squadrons to be launched, presumably learning from the [[Film/ANewHope first Death Star's destruction]]. They manage to destroy half of the X-wings and would have succeeded in defeating the Resistance had Chewie and Han Solo not blown a hole in the oscillator.
** Starkiller Base has better anti-starfighter protection than both Death Stars, incorporating turrets around key structures as well as missile launchers.

** The shield generator for Starkiller is ''inside the shield'' so it can't be disabled from the outside, and the "weak point" is a hardened structure capable of withstanding repeated strafing runs by X-wings. It takes Chewie blowing a large hole in the side and Poe flying inside and emptying his fighter's torpedo magazines into anything that looks important to finally destroy it.

* BellyScrapingFlight: The ''Falcon'''s edges and underside repeatedly drag over the sands of Jakku or clip rubbish and town structures when Rey and Finn steal it to escape capture. The poor old freighter also clips treetops when Han lands it at Starkiller Base at lightspeed.
