* BaitAndSwitch: See {{Jossed}} below. [[spoiler:The writers seem to have ''intentionally'' made readers think that characters were really characters from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' (the games) and subverted a fictional case of YoungFutureFamousPeople. Krynda Draay sounds like Kreia, has precognitive/clairvoyant powers, and is half-Miraluka like Kreia is implied to be in KOTOR II; Haazen looks like Darth Sion; Lucien Draay is even offered the title of Darth Sion, fits the definition of a "scion," and was originally named "Lusion". None of these people ended up having any direct consequence to the plot of the games. Alek does end up starting down the road to becoming Darth Malak though.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Several, given the amount of AuthorsSavingThrow the writers manage to pull off. A particularly notable one is hidden in one of the extra bounty hunter ebullient at the end of one of the issues, saying a certain person couldn't be the Corellian Strangler because he's too small. Cue issue 38.

* {{Prequel}}: Not only is it before Star Wars Episode I, but it is also a prequel to the Knights of the Old Republic video games.

* {{Prequel}}: Not only is it before Star Wars Episode I, but it is also An interesting pragmatic example. Pitched and sold as a prequel to ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' video game, the Knights series avoids many typical prequel pitfalls such as ForegoneConclusion, SavedByCanon and having to feature heroes prior to their CharacterDevelopment by focusing on an entirely different cast with an original plot instead. The game characters who do appear, are relegated to supporting roles and some too-on-the-nose {{Foreshadowing}} turned out to be RedHerring. The comics obviously share the same setting and hit the important required plot points, but end standing completely on their own, with only a passing knowledge of the Old Republic video games.game required.

Added DiffLines:

* TreacheryCoverUp: The Jedi realize how damaging the truth of Haazan's manipulations and actions would be if the Republic found out. Keeping the whole thing a secret from the galaxy, and blaming the bombardment of the Jedi temple by the Republic fleet on the Mandalorians.

* {{Badass}}:
** Zayne Carrick, who doesn't even have to kill a single person in forty issues to show it.
** Played straight with Cassus Fett: whenever he shows up (he's normally only present through fearful/awed mentions of his name), it's to make an amazingly badass statement or speech.

* Irony: An remarkably bitter example. Zayne discovers that the Padawan Massacre occurred early enough for him to miss it (and survive) only because one of his best friends realized he was too incompetent for the Masters' claim that he was being knighted along with the rest of them to be truthful. He does not take this realization well.
