** Batman also assumes that one or more of Arkham's escapees are key to Bane's plans, which is part of the reason why Batman's focus is on the other villains instead of Bane himself. Batman spends his time fruitlessly trying to find an ulterior motive to Bane's attack on Arkham.


Added DiffLines:

** Az-Bats does NOT react well to the Joker turning round and walking away from him.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicalNegro: Shondra Kinsolving has ''literal'' magic powers, and mostly exists as an excuse for Bruce to bounce back from his crippling (that said, she doesn't provide a whole lot of ''spiritual'' guidance - that part mostly goes to Alfred). Probably a big part of why Denny O'Neil did his best to keep the ''Search'' part of Knightquest out of print.

** Trogg, whose only real crime was killing a corrupt cop for raping his wife.

** Trogg, whose only real crime was killing attacking a corrupt cop mobster (with DirtyCop ties, natch) for raping his wife.[[note]]This is only the case in the novelization; the comics version is implied to have a ''much'' higher body-count, with nowhere near the justification.[[/note]]

* DudeWheresMyRespect: One of the most entertaining ways the novelization differs from the actual comics - in the novel, Bane breaks Batman around three in the morning, so he can't find any audiences aside from a few bums. As a result, Gotham's underworld continues to ignore him until he starts resorting to [[IHaveYourWife even more drastic measures]].

* [[BottledHeroicResolve Bottled Villainous Reserve]]Reserve]]: Bane's Venom setup. Normally, it's just to give him his incredible SuperStrength, but at the end of ''Knightfall'', he uses it to close the wound inflicted by Jean-Paul.

* SpoilerCover: The cover for Batman #497 shows Bane breaking Batman's spine, lessening the shock of when it happens inside. All the trade covers also show it happening.

* AxCrazy: At least half the parties involved in the crossover. Joker, Az-Bats, etc. One story that takes place during this crossover is even titled "[[PunBasedTitle Murdering Maniaxe]]".

DC then introduced readers to Bane. Born and raised in a prison, the super-intelligent Bane underwent experiments to turn him into a nearly-unstoppable SuperSoldier. Those experiments worked, but they also made Bane dependent on a drug known as Venom to achieve his full physical potential. After escaping from his "home", Bane makes it his goal to rule Gotham City; to achieve his goal, he must dethrone Gotham's "king" -- The Batman.

* SanitySlippage: Throughout the ''Knightquest'' portion of the storyline, Jean-Paul is haunted by the visions of St. Dumas and his father, both of them acting as his ShoulderAngels. It is heavily suggested that his encounter with Scarecrow triggered this, as the System kicked in and never allowed him to fully overcome it.
