** To put it in perspective, the 2012-version paperbacks of the entire story is easily split up into three books. ''Each one is over 600 pages long.''

Added DiffLines:

* EndingFatigue: After dozens and dozens of issues watching Bruce Wayne lose to Bane, hand the mantle of Batman over to Azrael, and work to get the mantle of Batman back from Azrael, Bruce Wayne finally defeats Azrael and...hands the mantle of Batman over to Dick Grayson and fucks off for another eight issues. Then he comes back and becomes Batman for real.

* ArchivePanic: This arc is ''huge'' in every sense of the word. The bare bones of the arc itself, according to Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}, comprise of material from ''Batman'', ''Detective Comics'', ''Shadow of the Bat'', ''Legends of the Dark Knight'', ''Robin'', ''Catwoman'', ''Showcase'' and ''Justice League Task Force''. And that's not even getting into the supplementary material like the ''Vengeance of Bane'' special or the ''Sword of Azrael'' mini-series, as well as a dozen or so lead-in issues of both ''Batman'' and ''Detective'' that show Batman's fatigue building as well as introducing both Azrael and Bane into the regular cast. And there's the two epilogue series, ''Prodigal'' and ''Troika'', which help the story chalk up over ''one hundred issues'' in total. And it wasn't helped by the fact that DC only packaged "Knightfall" and "Knights End" in collected editions, but not either side of "Knightquest", though with the new "Knightfall" collection, it's been rectified somewhat: for some odd reason, "Knightfall" included ''Vengeance of Bane'' for left out ''Sword of Azrael'' while "Knightquest" only focused on "The Crusade" as Denny O'Neil considers "The Search" as something of an OldShame.

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: [=The AzBats=] costume, despite basically existing to show that Batman doesn't ''need'' such a suit, remains tremendously popular among fans who simply appreciate its basic design. It may not make for a good Batman, but it makes for an excellent design.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Mr. Freeze was killed off ''Robin II: The Joker's Wild''. Here, he was resurrected during ''Knightquest'' because ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' made him popular.

* CreatorsPet: In the novelisation by Denny O'Neil, Bruce - during his journey to regain his capacity for violence - describes Lady Shiva as the ''"sexiest woman alive"''. Possibly crosses over with AuthorAppeal given Shiva was one of O'Neil's Pet Characters, fostered since her post-Crisis appearances in ComicBook/TheQuestion.

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the Mexican Spanish translation of the arc, Bane's famous line ''I will BREAK YOU!'' was translated as ''¡TE DEJARE INVALIDO!'' (I WILL ''CRIPPLE'' YOU!) possibly because a literal translation of the line could sound too ridiculous in Spanish.
