* RealityEnsues: [[AllThereInTheManual Kanan never finished his training]], so unsurprisingly he shows a lack of skill with a lightsaber and is no match for a much better trained duelist.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedBroadcast: Kanan is questioning his ability to train Ezra since Kanan himself never completed his training. Then there's a pirate broadcast stating Jedi Master Luminara Unduli is alive and in the Empire's custody, so Kanan leads the ''Ghost'' crew in rescuing her in hopes that she will take on Ezra as a student. This is very much ''not'' a coincidence as the broadcast was designed as a trap and Luminara has actually been dead for years.

** Sabine tunes into a [=HoloNet=] News broadcast about the stolen TIE fighter from "Fighter Flight".
** Form 3, Soresu, was the lightsaber style Obi-Wan specialized in. The Inquisitor saying that Kanan favors it to a ridiculous degree and was a poor student are both accurate, given Kanan spends a decent chunk of their duel attacking him. Soresu is a predominantly defensive style, using it offensively like he does shows both that Kanan doesn't understand it very well and doesn't know much else. And he still [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsSparkOfRebellion doesn't get the opening stance right]].

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: To mask their presence from the Empire on Stygeon, Hera alters the ''Phantom'''s electronic signals ... inconveniently to what is also a mating call for tibidees (flying manta ray-like creatures related to [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars neebrays]] and mynocks), and they start aggressively rubbing up against the top of the ''Phantom'' while it's attached to the cliffside. Hera is disturbed by this to say the ''least''.

* JediMindTrick: Kanan uses it on the Stormtroopers guarding Luminara's cell.
* LeeroyJenkins: After Kanan makes his entry into the Spire by jumping down to the entryway from above, Ezra decides to follow him when he and the rest of the team were supposed to wait until the ''Phantom'' descended to let them off. This results in a squad of stormtroopers showing up after he flies face-first into the door, prompting Zeb and Sabine to follow along as well. However, this was only a minor hiccup in the plan.
* LuredIntoATrap: And Luminara was the bait. Even the stormtroopers don't know the truth.

* SeekingTheMissingFindingTheDead: Alas, poor Luminara . . .
* ShaggyDogStory: Luminara was dead the whole time, and the ''Ghost'' crew had only fallen into a trap that several other Jedi had fallen into. This then gets subverted: By escaping the Spire with their lives, the ''Ghost'' crew not only lives to fight another day, but they spread the truth of Luminara's fate so other surviving Jedi don't fall for the same trap.

* TemptingFate: [[LeeroyJenkins Ezra tries to show off by emulating Kanan during the infiltration of the prison and ends up making a racket]]. Kanan immediately asks him what he's doing, and states that they are lucky now if every stormtrooper in the prison doesn't know they're here. Cue a stormtrooper patrol coming to see what the noise was.
* ThereIsNoTry: Kanan says this to Ezra, who's trying to perform the Jedi exercises. Seemingly {{Deconstructed}} when Ezra says that it makes no sense to do something without trying and Kanan admits that he never understood what Yoda meant by it anyway. At the end, [[DeconReconSwitch Kanan figures out what it means]] -- if he simply ''tries'' to do something without believing that he can, he's guaranteed to fail.
