  • Serendipity Writes the Plot: Landry Q. Walker was unaware that Kix was supposed to appear again in Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the then-unfinished Bad Batch arc, writing him in "The Crimson Corsair" with his then-final scene with Fives in the episode "Orders" in mind. The Clone Wars revival compensates for Kix's disappearance during the war by having the Bad Batch arc be his final appearance in the show.

  • Stillborn Franchise: The book is titled with future entries in mind, but as of October 2020, there's been no sign of continuing the series. The "Crimson Corsair" story has a planned sequel in the Star Wars Adventures comic series, but even that hasn't had any news since the debut of the comic.
  • Throw It In: That Kix's designation number was CT-6116 was always meant to be placeholder, but was ultimately kept.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • In "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Dooku" story, a scene that was edited out was that while trailing Fives's claims, Kix would be smuggled off of Kamino by a Togruta ship secretly arranged by Shaak Ti, who would have been more suspicious of the conspiracy after the events of the Order 66 arc. This would have led to the deleted scene in Revenge of the Sith where Shaak Ti is held captive and killed on the Invisible Hand.

    • An alternative method for how Kix was made into a Human Popsicle was via carbonite, which would have been a Call-Back to the Citadel arc.
  • Word of God: The author has, rather ominously, stated that Kix's chip hasn't been removed, and although it hasn't been activated yet, it's not inactive...
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: The deadlines for the first drafts of the stories were very short, and "The Crimson Corsair" was written in a few hours. The first draft of "The Crimson Corsair" went 3000 words over budget.
