* AmazonianBeauty: If played as a female soldier then she is only dwarfed by Malak. She's huge compared to the other characters and classes.

** Alternatively, it's implied a couple of times that the PC's ability to speak so many languages is essentially a Force Power akin to Bastila's Battle Meditation. [[spoiler: The One on the Unknown World specifically mentions Revan using the Force to "rip" knowledge of the Rakatan language from the One's mind and then to essentially [[IncrediblyLamePun Force-feed]] knowledge of Basic into the Rakata in return.]]

Statement: HK-47 is a psychotic assassin droid that the protagonist purchases on Tatooine to serve as a translator. Addendum: He returns in the sequel, dismantled in the Ebon Hawk's storage compartment, and must be rebuilt with spare parts.

* AntiHero: Answer: See NominalHero below.

* BreakoutCharacter: Statement: Due to his popularity, HK-47 returned in the sequel and the HK-50s were created so versions of him could serve as antagonists. He also got a level devoted to him attacking the HK Factory that foolish meatbags cut due to rushing the game. HK-47 went to also make appearances in ''VideoGame/StarWarsGalaxies'' (meaning his programing survived thousands of years) and ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''.
* CallAHumanAMeatbag: Explanation: HK-47 is programmed to refer to all organics as "meatbags" after his original master witnessed him calling [[spoiler:Darth Malak]] one.
* ComedicSociopathy: Assertion: You'll never hear funnier stories about people getting shot in the kneecaps.
* DeadpanSnarker: Statement: His very dialogue ''drips'' with snarkiness.
* DoomMagnet: Exposition: His various stories in the original KOTOR feature him, directly or indirectly, killing off his masters unintentionally.
* TheDragon: Statement: Willingly loyal to [[spoiler:Darth Revan]], who has earned that respect and admiration, even for a meatbag.
* [[ApeShallNeverKillApe Droid Shall Never Kill Droid]]: Statement: For a time, the self-preservation protocols of HK-47 and HK-50 prevented them from harming one another, due to being made from the same template.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Derision: Finds the HK-50's needless brutality and wanton slaughter unsettling, to say the least.

* FantasticRacism: Disgusted remark: Except for a few exceptions like my old master, I would love nothing more than to shoot all meatbags on sight.

** Explanation: If you don't care about negotiating with the Sand People on Tatooine, you can simply not purchase HK-47. Irony: This means that HK-47 is only necessary for players who want to do a full light-side run.
** Addendum: It is optional to get the parts to repair him in the sequel.
* PunnyName: Assertion: A name similar to "AK-47" befits an assassination droid.
* RoboticPsychopath: Derision: He considers all organics to be inferior, referring to them as "meatbags" and offering/suggesting to murder them horribly whenever they happen to get annoying. Insincere Reassurance: Except you. Master.
* SecondLawMyAss: Clarification: Technically, HK-47 is second-law compliant, and will always follow the orders of the [[PlayerCharacter meatbag in charge]]. Addendum: [[KillerRobot It's the first law that he gleefully ignores.]]

* TokenEvilTeammate: Pattern Recognition: Canderous is the "sane evil". HK-47 is a killbot who loves his work. Prediction: Stick them in a party together, and between them they will suggest dealing with any and all problems with flaming death.
* UndyingLoyalty: Specification: To his original master, [[spoiler:Revan]].
* UpgradeVsPrototypeFight: Proud statement: No matter how much they tried to present themselves as superior to me, the HK-50 pretenders didn't stand a chance against my unmatched talents.

* DependingOnTheWriter: BioWare and [[Creator/ObsidianEntertainment Obsidian]] give Revan entirely different personalities and motivations. Revan's gender is another subject: BioWare and Obsidian kept it ambiguous but seems to have been leaning towards Revan being female. David Gaider, one of the game's writers, said in a forum post that he considered Revan a woman, and in KOTOR 2 Atton Rand refers to Revan as a "she" in an early conversation; if you try to correct him, he'll snarkily cast doubts on what Revan's gender was. Lucasfilm and subsequent expanded universe material, however, establish Revan as an unambiguously male character .
