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

Added DiffLines:

* InHarmsWay: Discussed and demonstrated throughout the game. He talks about how not letting the Jedi prevent him from doing the right thing, will always be on hand should something happen at the Rakatan temple, then there's this bit near the end.
-->'''Revan:''' I'd rather you were safe. Somewhere else.
-->'''Jolee:''' Oh that's very kind of you. But while elsewhere may be safer elsewhere is not where I need to be.

* {{Expy}}: Bastila's role was originally going to be played by Vima Sunrider from the ''Tales of the Jedi'' comics. Due to bizarre trademark issues with the name "Sunrider" that nobody seems to actually understand, this plan was scrapped and a new character was created to take her place. She also has a similar role to Aribeth of the other {{Bioware}} game ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights''.

* 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.

* GeniusBruiser: Despits his reputation as a dumb brute, Malak is actually a skilled and experienced tactician who outflanks and outwits the heroes several times, has a good intellectual understanding of the Force and of Sith lore, and figured out the inner workings of the Star Forge pretty much by himself. His failing is that he is simply a hothead and that his rival is one of the smartest Sith Lords who ever lived.



* MasterSwordsman: One of the most formidable lightsaber combatants of his age and according to WordOfGod, even though he lost his final duel with Revan he is on a technical level actually ''superior'' to him as a swordsman and could have won their last fight if things went his way.



* OvershadowedByAwesome: Revan is one of the most skilled, intelligent and powerful Dark Lords of the Sith who ever lived, and Malak falls short when compared to him. However, despite his shortcomings, Malak is actually a formidable Dark Lord in his own right and showcases a ''very'' wide range of Dark Side powers as well as a decent amount of tactical (if not necessarily strategic) ability. In addition, WordOfGod states that even though he lost his last duel to him, in the final analysis Malak is actually a ''superior'' lightsaber duellist to Revan.

* AttackAttackAttack: He's not well versed in tactics, so this is his standard response to trouble.

* BrainsAndBrawn: Definitely the The Brawn to Revan's Brain.Brain. However, while he is more violent, impulsive and hot-headed than the latter, he is still a competent and experienced tactician and not one to be underestimated.

** 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.]]
