* BadassBookworm: It's implied that much of Bane's knowledge of the Force comes entirely from his diligent study of Old Sith lore. It's especially impressive when you realize that Bane was a miner with little-to-no formal education and no training in the Force whatsoever until he was in his mid-twenties.

* DownerEnding: The Jedi destroy the Sith but only at the cost of their army's greatest leader and ninety-nine other Jedi. And Bane, who no one even knows exists, is left alone to found the order that will nearly destroy them. The end of the second novel is even worse.
** Unless you're RootingForTheEmpire, in which case TheChessmaster wins pretty thoroughly.

It's especially impressive when you realize that Bane was a miner with little-to-no formal education and no training in the Force whatsoever until he was in his mid-twenties. Completely averted when Bane becomes a true Sith Lord.

** He also views Darth Revan as this, seeing him as the ideal sith lord.

* WeirdWeather: In ''Path of Destruction'', Bane encourages the Sith fighting on Ruusan to summon a Force-powered storm that levels the forest the Republic forces were occupying. The combination of the destruction and the miasma of evil energy also drives the formerly peaceful native "bouncers" insane, turning them from bringers of comfort to feared and pitied psychic scourges.
-->'''Darth Bane:''' Now look at that map and think like a Sith. Don't just fight in the forests...''destroy the forests!''

* AbusiveParents: Bane's father was, too put it bluntly, an utter bastard.

* UnreliableNarrator: Drew Karpyshyn, the author, [[WordOfGod discussed this]] in relation to a fan theory regarding the ending. He had actually intended for the ending to be clear, but too many it wasn't. He noted that in order for the fan theory to work, readers would have to assume that he was being an unreliable narrator at the end of the book, something that he had never done before. "[[http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:DtRcbmCVBwIJ:www.drewkarpyshyn.com/spoiler.htm Unfortunately, “twist” endings have become so prevalent recently that I think people assume narrators are unreliable now by default...]]"

* {{Deconstruction}}: And {{Reconstruction}} as well. The books show the Republic in all its corrupt and evil glory plus the perspective of the Sith. At the end of the day, you realize that the Jedi Knights are entirely right that there's something fundamentally wrong with the Sith.

* AttackAttackAttack: In ''Rule of Two'', Bane's ClingyCostume of orbalisks provides him with a nigh-indestructible suit of armor that lets him shrug off most lightsaber strikes. He plays this to his advantage with a hyper-aggressive variant of Form V: Djem So relying on sheer brute force to overcome opponents.
