* UnskilledButStrong: Reborn and Shadowtroopers. Despite a complete lack of training with the Force, they're capable of holding their own against your average Jedi. Unfortunately for them, Kyle is ''not'' [[{{Badass}} your average Jedi]].

* {{Badass}}: Kyle Katarn, [[Analysis/DarkForcesSaga in so many ways]]. From BadassNormal in ''Dark Forces'', to EmpoweredBadassNormal in ''Jedi Knight''. After [[BroughtDownToBadass returning back to Badass]] at the start of ''Outcast'' he becomes an EmpoweredBadassNormal ''again'', and finally becomes a BadassTeacher in ''Academy''. Oh and don't forget his BadassBeard.
** His most notable accomplishment is beating at least one Kell dragon to death. ''With his fists.'' Note that each Kell dragon is as tall as a human, at least three times as long, and normally ''eats humans for breakfast'' (at least the one Kyle fought did). And he did this ''before'' [[BadassNormal learning to use the Force]].
** He's so badass that [[spoiler:if you take the Dark Side route in ''Academy'' and fight him as the final boss, you aren't fighting to kill him. "Winning" involves you crashing the ceiling on him for a ''distraction'' and running away.]]
** And in [[spoiler:said final boss fight, he can do something that cannot be done by you or any other character in the game. He can actually ''pull away your lightsaber!'' For any other character, TheComputerIsACheatingBastard would apply. Kyle is simply just that badass.]]
** Don't forget that he also [[spoiler:will sometimes not even bother with the lightsaber, but will instead grab you and start punching you!]]
** Kyle can snark at ''Luke Skywalker'' and get away with it.

* MakeItLookLikeAStruggle: In the novella and audio drama, Kyle has to either punch or shoot his former Academy friend that helped him infiltrate Danuta to absolve him of any guilt. It was never revealed if it worked or not.

* DamselInDistress: Jan Ors is captured in all three games that she's in and a few [[NoodleIncident missions that only get a sentence in RPG articles.
** [[DistressedDude Subverted in that Kyle is rescued by Jan about the same amount of times or more.]] It's even lampshaded a couple of times.

* ForgottenFirstMeeting: An RPG article states that Kyle and Jan first met each other at the Imperial Academy on Carida while the latter was there undercover, though neither of them made any real impression upon the other.

Added DiffLines:

* RightHandedLeftHandedGuns: In the original Dark Forces game, the model for the Bryar pistol features a magazine off of its left side, making it impossible to place loaded in the holster that's often shown to be on Kyle's right leg. Other games removed the offset magazine in the gun's design.
