* EurekaMoment: A Meta example. When Luceno got custodianship of the project, he knew the endpoint, but was understandably unsure how exactly to get to there. While on vacation in Mexico, he saw a traveler reading Tom Clancy’s ''The Hunt for Red October'' and this inspired the idea of the Jedi hunting for Sidious.

While on vacation in Mexico, he saw a fellow traveler reading Tom Clancy’s ''The Hunt for Red October'' and this October''. This inspired the idea of the Jedi hunting for Sidious.


* ContinuitySnarl: The final season of ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Clone Wars]]'' also shows the lead-up to ''Revenge of the Sith''; it aligns with with ''Labyrinth of Evil'' in some ways, but contradicts it in others (ex. some of the Jedi escorting Palpatine are the same ones in ''The Clone Wars'', but Obi-Wan and Anakin's whereabouts before they're called back to Coruscant to rescue Palpatine are completely different in the two works [[note]] They're on Tythe in ''Labyrinth'', while they're on Nelvaan in ''The Clone Wars'' [[/note]].)

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenInPlainSight: Palpatine as always. Luceno also adds a new layer to Palpatine's secret trolling with the reveal that one of the statues he installed in the Chancellor's Office is actually an ancient demigod of ''disguise''.


* ContinuityNod: Plenty, to stories from throughout the entire Clone Wars multimedia campaign.

* ContinuityNod: Plenty, to stories from throughout the entire Clone Wars multimedia campaign. As it's Luceno, it borders on ContinuityPorn.

Added DiffLines:

* ResolvedNoodleIncident: Towards "that business on Cato Neimoidia" that Obi-Wan wasn't too proud of in Episode 3. After accidentally inhaling a bunch of narcotic spores and forgetting his mask, Obi-Wan, in [[DrunkenMaster what can only be called a drunken trip]], annihilates fifty Battle Droids by the time Anakin gets there to render assistance.

* SeriesContinuityError: The book claims that before discovering the image of Sidious within the mechno-chair, the Jedi believed he was a lie, invented by Dooku to lead Ob-Wan astray on Geonosis in ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', and not mentioned since. But in ''Yoda: Literature/DarkRendezvous'', Dooku names Sidious as his master openly to Yoda. {{Continuity Nod}}s to ''Dark Rendezvous'' appear elsewhere in ''Labyrinth of Evil'', yet this discrepancy is not explained.

* ShootTheBuilder: Palpatine killed everyone involved in the design and delivery of Darth Maul's ship except two scientists he planned to use later and a pilot who went into hiding. During the book's events, Palpatine unsuccessfully attempts to kill the pilot and the less important scientist to cover his tracks.

--> '''Fa'ale Lah:''' You know, they killed the engineers, the mechanics, just about everyone who worked on that craft. But I knew. I made the delivery, grabbed what was due me, and I was away. Not far enough, though. They tracked me to Ryloth, Nar Shaada, half the starforsaken worlds in the Tingel Arm. I had my share of close calls.


* FirstAppearance: The book contains the first reference to Darth Plagueis in any ''Star Wars'' media.


''Labyrinth of Evil'', along with the ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' novelization and ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'', is part of what is called the "Dark Lord" trilogy.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In Chapter 10, Bail Organa reflects on how things have changed on Coruscant during the war--freedoms eroded in the name of security, FantasticRacism against species associated with the Separatists, omnipresent clone troops who stop anyone who looks like a terrorist--in what sounds like a commentary on TheWarOnTerror.
