  • Alien Sky: Mortis' sky was filled with levitating rocks.
  • Götterdämmerung: This story arc introduces the Force-wielders, who are manifestations of the Light Side, Dark Side, and Balance of the Force. The Son (The Dark Side) tries to turn Anakin to his side, which both the Daughter and the Father try to prevent, so they start fighting. Things end with all three of them dead.

  • Metaphorically True: This story arc is filled with obscure, misleading and contradictory information from the Father, Daughter, and Son. All of them are couched in metaphorical language. The Son quotes the original trope name that will be featured in Return of the Jedi: His actions are good, or evil, "from a certain point of view".
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Anakin and the Father have this during this story arc, where their combined mistakes — the Father bringing Anakin to Mortis awakens Son's vanity, and Anakin turning down the Father's request to stay and keep the balance between Son and Daughter — results in the death of all three [[Physical God Force-wielders.
  • Oh My Gods!: In "Overlords", Ahsoka asks "What in the Universe was that?"
  • Wham Episode: Anakin Skywalker realizes the burden on his shoulders as The Chosen One, which was something he previously dismissed as a myth. Meanwhile, Ahsoka Tano sees a vision of her future self telling her to stay away from Anakin because he will lead her to the Dark Side. The Son also corrupts Ahsoka and through her, she reveals her subconscious fears and resentments: her frustration towards Anakin's criticality and dissatisfaction.
