    • Who: Qui-Gon Jinn
    • Note: Character is dying of a wound inflicted by Darth Maul. The line is spoken to Obi-Wan Kenobi in reference to Anakin Skywalker.
    • Note: In Star Wars Episode Two Qui-Gon Jinn's voice can be heard in the scene of the transistion between Anakin killing the sand people. He says "Anakin! Anakin! No!".

    • Who: Zam Wessel
    • Notes: After her arm was severed, she almost revealed to Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker who sent her to kill Padme before getting blown by a toxin dart from Jango Fett; returning to her natural Clawdite form, she cursed Jango in Huttese ("Bounty hunter slime bag") before dying.
    • According to the events of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, Zam and Jango were friends, albeit in a working relationship. Wookiepedia suggests he was aiming for Anakin but missed and hit Zam instead, which would explain why she cursed him, thinking she was betrayed. Of course, if that's true, Jango wouldn't have been happy about it.

  • Heh heh heh... I'm weaponless... KILL ME! (pause) You can't, can you? You're weak... like your father. I remember it... Jerec... He gave him a sweet slow death, a death worthy of a COWARD! I had the honor of taking his head and THRUSTING IT on a spike for all to see... Hee hee heh ha ha...

    • Who: Tavion
    • Notes: Character is referring to Kyle Katarn sparing her after defeating her and learning Jan's location in Jedi Outcast, confident that since he disgraced her, she would not be of any use to her master. These words are spoken only if the player decides to go to the Dark side. If on the light side, she says this just before being possessed by Marka Ragnos and later dying.
