** This is also shown in that the Chancellor of the second book is the first non-Jedi Chancellor in four hundred years, showing they were much more liked in this time.

* KnightTemplar: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]- though they do not get as much focus as the Sith and Bane himself, the Jedi in this series aren't stoic or rigid as the future Jedi will be- the Patawan Johan is told that it is fine to grieve, for one, General Hoth is far more angry and hot-headed than the Jedi of the Clone Wars ever are, and they haven't yet started only taking recruits in the form of babies, having no issue taking in Johan and several others after the age of ten or older.

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: The Neimoidian bartender Groshik smuggles Bane off Apatros after the latter kills three Republic soldiers in self-defense, allowing him to join the Sith. He himself suffers no consequences later on, but his act of kindness allows Bane to become a Sith, causing the rest of the galaxy to suffer as a result.

* ImmortalitySeeker: Bane becomes this by ''Dynasty of Evil'', as his body is slowly breaking down and he fears that Zannah will prove to be an unworthy successor by refusing to challenge him for the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith. He thus needs time to find and train a suitable replacement, which he can only get by finding a way to extend his life.


Added DiffLines:

* YourDaysAreNumbered: By ''Dynasty of Evil'', Darth Bane’s body has begun to break down from overusing the dark side of the Force. The knowledge of his impending mortality, and his fears that Darth Zannah will simply let him waste away rather than challenge him in his prime as the Rule of Two dictates, spur Bane to become an ImmortalitySeeker.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Double-bladed lightsabers as Blademaster Kas'im explains. Despite its power there are several obvious weaknesses. Such as the user being limited mostly to swings and how vulnerable the hilt is. Its real advantage is how little most know about it, preventing them from using these weaknesses.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Double-bladed lightsabers as Blademaster Kas'im explains. Despite its power there are several obvious weaknesses. Such as the user being limited mostly to swings and how vulnerable the hilt is. Its real advantage is how little most know about it, preventing them from using these weaknesses. Kas'im holds this to be even more true about DualWielding, outright refusing to teach it to any of his students and declaring it to be a useless form that only an idiot would use. [[spoiler:Except this is a lie; Kas'im himself chose dual wielding as his ''true'' fighting style, with his double-bladed lightsaber [[BifurcatedWeapon splitting into two regular ones]]. He refused to teach the technique to anyone so that [[BatmanGambit any student who might betray him would not only know nothing about how to fight a dual-wielder, they would focus all their preparation on the completely different strengths and weaknesses of fighting against a double-bladed lightsaber]].]]



* CameBackStrong: After getting demolished by Sirak Bane is forgotten by most of the academy and his connection to the force is crippled. During this time he begins reading ancient texts in the archives, meets Githany who repairs his force connection and tutors him, while receiving private sword lessons from Kas'im. When Bane faces Sirak again he's not only a superior duelist, but far stronger force user, with a deeper understanding of the Sith's history and philosophy.

* DragonAscendant: Bane builds the entire Rule of Two around this concept. Naturally, the series concludes with Zannah fulfilling this trope with the knowledge Cognus will one day do the same thing.
