** The Orbalisks form an impenetrable armor from their shells as they spread across Bane's body. As well as secreting rage inducing fluids making him even stronger. Without the proper precautions however they would inevitably kill him, or drive him mad with their hunger.



* 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 Giffany 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.
* CanonDiscontinuity: ''Path of Destruction'' replaces ''Jedi vs. Sith'' and ''Rule of Two'' replaces ''Bane of the Sith'' in official continuity.

** Zannah does this a few times. [[spoiler:Hesitating to kill Bane when the opportunities arise out of fear that she hasn't learned everything she can from him. Subverted in one case as she tells him that if he could not kill the assassins she inadvertently sent after him he didn't deserve to live.]]

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Sirak gets the tables turned on him after Bane learns his style's weaknesses. Without any experience against a real opponent or the stamina to fight a prolonged battle Bane mops the floor with him.

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Rain, shortly after she uses the Force to [[spoiler: murder two Jedi knights who unwittingly killed her alien best friend]], is offered a ride off planet by a Republic special forces officer and her two companions. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, she needs the ship to herself so she can meet with Bane, so she uses a blaster to kill all three of them and steal it.]] Bear in mind she did all this at the age of ''ten''.

** Actually, it's not that much of a goof: [[spoiler: even during the days of the [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Sith Empire]], it was something of a tradition for an upper-echelon Sith Lord to take an apprentice, though said apprentice usually functioned as a [[TheDragon powerful minion]] rather than an heir, so perhaps that's how Yoda knew of it]].

* MaleMightFemaleFinesse: Bane instructs Darth Zannah in a different form of lightsaber combat than himself, explaining that her smaller size, weaker musculature, and lack of nigh-indestructible orbalisk armor means she can't effectively use his AttackAttackAttack variant of Form V: Djem So. He instead teaches her to use a double-bladed saber and Form III: Soresu, which she initially dislikes because the defensive style is more typically associated with the Jedi.

The books are unusual in the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' in that they are from [[VillainProtagonist the perspective of a character aligned to the Sith]]. Even more unusual, no attempt is made to portray the actions of Darth Bane as heroic or noble. Instead, Bane slowly descends ever deeper into corruption and eventually becomes as evil as one would expect the Dark Lord of the Sith to be.
