''Knightmare'' is a revolutionary kids' TV show produced by Anglia Television for broadcast on {{ITV}} that is a blend of a TV show, [[TabletopGames an RPG]] and an AdventureGame. The basic premise is that children in teams of four challenge the Dungeon of Deceit. The game was [[NintendoHard unashamedly difficult]] for a kids' TV show: over the eight years that the show ran, over eighty teams entered but only eight teams actually won. ''Not a single team won in the first and third years.''

* TheRoleplayer: Averted, Players never seemed to take the opportunity to role play with the actors despite the various opportunities given and the rich personalities of the dungeon denizens. Quite often they would struggle to squeak out a simple "yes" or "no" answer.

*** Exactly how 'accidental' it was could be open to some debate. The team picked up a mysterious bottle before reaching the clue room and were all set to just leave that bottle on the table and pick their two items. Unfortunately for them, Tregard kept nagging them to "investigate it, open it!" until they did what he wanted and promptly destroyed the clue room and all the objects inside it.

** Hordriss generally spoke and carried himself in a pretentious and overly theatrical manner. This was a deliberate reflection of the character, a benign and powerful but pompous mage.

* DeapanSnarker: Lord Fear switches (sometimes quite abruptly) between this and being a LargeHam. Sometimes he manages to combine the two.

* DeapanSnarker: DeadpanSnarker: Lord Fear switches (sometimes quite abruptly) between this and being a LargeHam. Sometimes he manages to combine the two. He directs his snarking variously at the dungeoneers, Treguard, other members of the Powers that Be, his own henchmen...basically everyone.


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam:
** Lord Fear, whenever he's not being a DeadpanSnarker (and sometimes when he is). It comes to the fore when he gets angry, which can involve some quite magnificent shouting.
