* IWorkAlone: Michael and KITT once encountered a government agent who was working on the same case as they were. He stated this literally word-for word.

* FollowTheLeader: ''{{Series/Airwolf}}'', ''Series/BlueThunder'', ''Series/StreetHawk'', ''The Highwayman'', and arguably ''{{Series/Automan}}'' were all [[TravelCool cool vehicle]] shows spawned in the wake of KR's success. The first two were also obviously DuelingShows that were ''also'' following ''Film/BlueThunder'''s cinematic lead, and ''Automan'' was following two leaders, KR and ''{{Film/Tron}}''. Notably, all but ''Airwolf'' [[ShortRunners died early deaths]].



* FollowTheLeader: The success of the ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'' movie was a major influence on [=KR08=]'s pilot movie, and the subsequent show borrowed a lot of design elements (including the transformation style), culminating in bringing Creator/PeterCullen back as the voice of KARR.
** Ironically, the transformation style had previously been attempted in ''Viper'', which was a distant FollowTheLeader of the original Knight Rider.

* WeaponizedCar: The old KITT had lasers and occasionally other systems that he tended to use for defense or minor attacks on key points. The new KITT, to emphasize just how more BadAss he is, is armed with a laser, rocket launchers and [[MoreDakka three]] [[GatlingGood miniguns]], [[PlotInducedStupidity which typically aren't used when they would actually be useful]].

* MoralityChip: KITT's ObstructiveCodeOfConduct is the preservation of human life, a leading factor of his friendly personality. KARR lacks this: his compulsion is instead self-preservation - ultimately, at the expense of everything and everyone else. [[FridgeLogic One has to wonder why]], if you're designing a car to act as protector to a guy whose intended duty is the protection of those who can't help themselves... why would you make its primary directive '''self'''-preservation?
** To be fair, Wilton Knight's panicking and immediately deactivating KARR after he [[spoiler:ran over traffic cones representing children during a test]] couldn't have helped KARR's attitude...

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: NotQuiteDead, KARR returns, despite having been blown to pieces.
** Actually, he returns after plunging off a cliff into the ocean. He's recovered by a couple that find him under the sand on a beach. He was blown up at the end of ''KITT vs KARR'' and is never seen again.
