  • Alien Invasion: The name of the series kinda gives it away.
  • Badass Family
  • Body Horror: The slave seeds implanted in Yuuzhan Vong prisoners make them grow spikes and other growths.
    • Kaye and Finn, when their Yuuzhan Vong parentage first becomes apparent.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: What the Yuuzhan Vong experiments do to their subjects.
  • Cameo: Finn spars with the Solo children at Luke's Praxeum on the same training course shown in Star Wars Jedi Academy.
  • Captain Ersatz: Finn looks and dresses a lot like a young Cid Highwind from Final Fantasy VII.
  • Chest Burster: Something certainly seemed to want to get out of Finn's chest.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: The mysterious Master Dray.
  • Cut Short: Cancelled at the end of its third story arc, just as Finn's mother officially reveals her true Vong heritage to others and forms an Outer Rim Alliance to help defend against her invading people. At least four more years of the war were left at the end.

  • Jerkass: Captain Ogden
  • Killed Off for Real: Caled Galfridian
