Go Rogue provides examples of:

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The aptly named TK-XXL is a giant Stormtrooper, though he doesn't do much before being brought down with one shot from a giant blaster.
  • Bigger on the Inside: The U-Wing's cabin is much roomier than the outside would have you believe. Lampshaded by K-2SO.
  • Big "NO!": Krennic does the slow-motion version when Jyn accidentally drops the instructions down a shredder.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Krennic delivers this when he hears the news that the Death Star building instructions have been lost.
  • Built With LEGO: The briefcases, the Death Star, some Stormtroopers and some vehicles in the first three chapters. In the final chapter, everything is portrayed in LEGO.
  • Did You Get a New Haircut?: A Stormtrooper asks Krennic of this in Chapter 3 when he now is portrayed with a figurine when in earlier chapters he is portrayed with his Funko Pop figure.

  • Everybody Laughs Ending: Chapter 4.
  • Expressive Mask: K-2SO and the Stormtroopers
  • Let's You and Him Fight: When Jyn first meets Cassian, she believes him to be affiliated with the Empire due to him being accompanied by an Imperial droid. Actual Imperial troops show up before they can explain themselves.
  • Morality Dial: Apparently, Cassian rewired K-2SO to side with the Alliance just by flipping a Good/Bad switch on his back
  • Merchandise-Driven: Half of the goal of this series was to promote the Rogue One toyline.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • In Chapter 1, Jyn asks a trio of minifig Stormtroopers if they are a little short to be Stormtroopers. This gag comes up again in Chapter 2 when K-2SO asks if the humongous TK-XXL is "a little tall for a Stormtrooper".
    • In Chapter 3, Krennic opens the briefcase containing the first set of Death Star instructions with the passcode 1138.

    • In Chapter 4, Baze warns Jyn that Krennic's demand for the second instruction book is "a trap". The show then immediately cuts to Ackbar saying "I could've told you that."
    • Also in Chapter 4, Bodhi tells Jyn to "fly casually".
  • No MacGuffin, No Winner: In the final chapter, Jyn threatens to shred the instructions. A stray laser bolt causes her to drop them in the shredder anyhow.
  • Slow Doors: In Chapter 4, Krennic attempts to box in the escaping rebels with emergency doors, but to no avail.
