* ActivationSequence: During the first time that the ''Malevolence'' fires its fleet-disabling weapon, the order is given, battle droids activate the system as an electronic hum begins building up, and the emitter near the front of the ship begins to glow before firing a disk of electromagnetic energy that leaves its targets helpless.

* SomethingWeForgot: {{Subverted}}. When they try to hide from the ''Malevolence''[='s=] sensors, Plo has every system aboard the ''Twilight'' shut down, including R2. However, they forgot about the medical droid treating the clones at the back of the ship.

* DramaticSpaceDrifting: The first escape pod Plo and company encounter in the debris field is turned around to discover that it's been attacked and cut open, with a dead clone floating in the hole in the viewport. With the second pod, the one they witness being attacked by the podhunter, they see the clone officers inside being sucked out into space.

* ExplosiveDecompression: {{Averted|Trope}} and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Plo Koon. Before leaving the escape pod, he orders his men to put on their helmets and follow him. He doesn't need any protection because he can survive in space long enough to deal with a few battle droids.
