* ALizardNamedLiz: A lizardman named Lissard.
** Actually he's an Atlantian.



* PaperThinDisguise: Hordriss's occasional attempts to disguise himself as a beggar, witch or animal. Even when shapeshifted as a [[MegaNeko giant cat]], his intonation of 'meow' is instantly recognisable.
** MultilayerFacade: There's a school of thought that one time, the beggar is really Lord Fear in a very good Hordriss disguise plus a very bad beggar disguise.

** Later in the first series, one group who had managed to get to Level 2 gets a riddle from Folly the jester which tells them to take the door on the right hand side, only for them to take the door on the left. Big mistake, as it leads them to a room with a bomb that explodes the second the dungeoneer took a step.
*** The very next team lost in almost the same manner ''in the very same episode'', but were (harshly) denied a clue by only getting two of three of Granitas' riddles correct.

* {{Unwinnable}}: There was no returning to a previous room. If a team missed an important item or character in a room, it was only a matter of time. Well, he did warn them: ''The only way is onward. There is no turning back.''
** This was also invoked with the last team to play on each series, as in game the dungeon would be on the verge of collapsing, and the team would be stuck on a seemingly impossible quest. Treguard would have to summon the player back as the room began to disintegrate around them.

** I'd question Glasgwegian being in the Highlands however.



** {{The Spoony Experiment}}'s video on the show speculates that some of this was due to the British {{Verbal Tic}} of beginning and/or ending sentences with "Right."

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: Series 8, where everything was just a little bit different. Level 3 became level 2, level 1 was (mostly) back indoors, and everything was CGI. Also, the advisor room was made much darker, and everyone was standing up.

The reason for the popularity of ''Knightmare'' was the way the dungeon was fought. One member of the team walked around a room with a BlueScreen while the other three guided him. In order to explain why he needed guiding, the Dungeoneer wore "The Helmet of Justice" that basically blinded him to everything more than about a foot away. The puzzles were heavily focused on riddles of wildly variable difficulty and lateral thinking. The Dungeon Master, Treguard, was a wonderful character. Whilst on the children's side, giving advice where needed, he was also more than a little sarcastic and seemed to be just as happy whether the teams won or lost.
