Continuity mistake: The red-marked leader of the ARC Troopers sure goes through a rapid succession of field promotions and degradations. In Chapter III, he is addressed by Obi-Wan as a Sergeant; when Obi-Wan arrives at the Banking Clan's HQ in Chapter IX, he calls him Commander; and when Anakin returns from his duel with Asajj Ventress in Chapter XX, he is suddenly a Captain.
Trivia: In Revenge Of The Sith, General Grievous' first appearance was made notable by his rasping cough. In the Star Wars storyline, the crushing of his chest by Mace Windu in this episode was presented as the logical reason; but actually, George Lucas merely wanted to signify that Grievous is not a droid, but a cyborg.
Trivia: Among the Jedi there is a human Padawan, who is called Sha'a Gi Zonks in several sources. According to Clone Wars director Genndy Tartakovsky, the character was inspired by the character Shaggy Rogers from the Scooby-Doo cartoons, resulting in a similar appearance and name pronunciation. Also, Zoinks was a favorite quote of Shaggy's.
Oro Dassyne: I wonder how many they'll send. We've got so much firepower in here, these walls are ray-shielded. They can't take this fort. It'll probably be, uh, fifty Jedi. They'll need at least that many. Huh, maybe a hundred Jedi! They'll never take this base with less. Ha, they'll need an army of Jedi!
Battle Droid: I have a visual.
Oro Dassyne: Jedi?
Battle Droid: I think so.
Oro Dassyne: How many? A thousand?

Oro Dassyne: Eighty?
Battle Droid: No, sir.
Oro Dassyne: What? Fifty?
Battle Droid: Less.
Oro Dassyne: Forty? Come on, how many?
Battle Droid: Two.
Oro Dassyne: What?! Give me those!
