* TheMerch: Twice! ** The few figures in the Hasbro's ''Legends of Batman'' toyline that didn't correspond to the {{Elseworlds}} theme of most of the figures could be called ''Knightfall: the Toyline'', as they were based on the characters in the comics at the time and the events were mentioned in a few of the figures bios. Included were Crusader Batman (a normal Bruce Wayne Batman figure), Nightwing, Catwoman, the Joker, the Riddler (Bane injecting him with Venom was mentioned in his bio), and a few figures of Azrael as Batman. Despite this, Bane never got a figure, but the Bane figure from the ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' toyline [[ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy was based the comics version of the character rather than the movie one]], so that figure should fit in quite nicely. ** DC Direct later did a toyline based on the story featuring Bruce in the Tengu outfit, Nightwing, Catwoman, Bane, and Azrael-Batman. ** ToylessToylineCharacter: Everyone else who was in the story? Outside of Tim Drake getting a figure in the ''Total Justice'' toyline and the aforementioned Bane in the ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' toyline, they never got figures for the ''Legends of Batman'' toyline. Similarly, outside of Bane, Azrael-Batman, Catwoman, Nightwing, and Bruce as the Tengu, DC Direct didn't make figures of the other characters.

** During the Joker's "return" during Az-Bats' time as Gotham's protector, he kills two men that look an awful lot like Gene Siskel and Creator/RogerEbert...

* ChristmasRushed: ''[=KnightsEnd=]'' had to use every available Bat-title to complete the story because they would be heading straight into ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' the moment the event ended.

* FollowTheLeader: Coming on the heels of TheDeathOfSuperman arc, one could see ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' as DC Comics' attempt to continue pulling in revenue during what was a boom period of ComicBook readership by making drastic changes to an iconic character. However, [[WordOfGod according to then-Batman group editor]] [[http://knightfallsaga.angelfire.com/denny.htm Dennis O'Neil]], ''Knightfall'' was already developed well in advance and independent of ''The Death of Superman''.

* {{Expy}}: During the aftermath of while ComicBook//{{Azrael}} is [[TakeUpMySword filling in]] for Bruce as Franchise/{{Batman}}, Jean-Paul's {{darker and edgier}} (and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy crazy]]) version of The Dark Knight starts off as a commentary on [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks comics of the time]], but slowly he explicitly becomes Creator/FrankMiller's [[Comicbook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns Dark Knight]], cemented when Jean-Paul makes himself gauntlets with metal claws.

* BatmanGambit: An infamous villainous example. Bane takes advantage of Batman's ChronicHeroSyndrome while knowing that he's sick to bust out the most violent criminals in Arkham, and just wait for Batman to tire himself out while he observes him from afar. By the time Batman returns to Wayne Manor he is exhausted, Bane has discovered his SecretIdentity and is waiting inside the manor for him. [[CurbStompBattle The fight is basically over before it even begins]].

*** Bird, Trogg, and Zombie are all played up to be co-[[TheDragon Dragons]] to Bane, and that Bane is actually loyal and fond of them. They never appear again after Knightfall.

** After Bane breaks Batman's back and throws him tumbling down to the street, we see a full shot of Wayne's broken body. Two of his ribs have visibly suffered compound fractures and are poking out from his flesh under the costume.
