- Accidental Innuendo: As one reviewer pointed out, "Mount Yoda" sounds more like an instruction from a Slash Fic than a location.
- Anvilicious: Oh yes.
- Creator's Pet: Ken, among fans for whom Star Wars is Serious Business.
- Fanon Discontinuity: Anything in the Star Wars Expanded Universe is discontinuity to someone, but for reasons that should be obvious this gets it more than most.
- Ho Yay: Han wanting to live in a sky house with Chewie is a regular source of humor on theforce.net.
- Marty Stu: Ken, the Jedi Prince.
- Not quite. Ken actually learns no Jedi skills or displays any real talent. He's more The Load.
- C'mon, the kid is a twelve-year-old
Star Wars fanadmirer of the Alliance's heroes, who is clearly supposed to be a vehicle of wish-fulfillment for the twelve-year-old Star Wars fans reading it. And he's related to the Emperor.
- Memetic Mutation: While the series isn't often well-remembered (and if it is, not exactly fondly), when Wookieepedia compiled a list of the goofiest things ever to appear in the Exanded Universe, one of the most popular inclusions was "the villainy of Trioculus and Hissa."
- Narm: A great deal.
- Nightmare Fuel: An illustration in the first book depicts Whaladons being butchered, which is gruesome enough before we consider that they're actually a sentient species in the Star Wars universe.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Several incidents (one Egregious example: the starship carrying R2-D2 and C-3PO being discovered by The Empire and having to take refuge in an asteroid belt) are merely mentioned in passing.
- Rescued From the Scrappy Heap: What several EU writers have since attempted to do with the events and characters of the series, some quite successfully (as in the case of the Prophets of the Dark Side, given a full treatment in Wizards of the Coast's Dark Side Companion). Notably, this involved making the Prophets seen in The Glove Of Darth Vader a bunch of impostors, that the fairly Badass real Prophets didn't consider worth the trouble of hunting down and killing.
- Snark Bait: There's some evidence that the writers have embraced this, considering that they defended the series in an interview by pointing to its popularity with students.
- So Bad It's Good
