Added DiffLines:

* MultiDiscWork:
** ''The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery'' comes on six [=CDs=].
** ''Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned'' comes on three [=CDs=]. That's half of the previous game, likely due to late 1990s 3D graphics not taking up as much space as full-motion video.


* GenreKiller: The infamous [[MoonLogicPuzzle "cat hair mustache" puzzle]] in ''Gabriel Knight 3'' is cited by Website/OldManMurray as one for adventure games as a whole.

* GenreKiller: The infamous [[MoonLogicPuzzle "cat hair mustache" puzzle]] in ''Gabriel Knight 3'' is cited by Website/OldManMurray as one for adventure games as a whole. To be somewhat fairer, though, he didn't consider ''Gabriel Knight'' to be a particular killer, merely a good case study for how the genre had embraced nonsensical "puzzles" and FakeDifficulty to the point of becoming utterly unapproachable nonsense.


** Accessing SIDNEY in ''Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned'' gives you a lot of seemingly irrelevant information about hauntings in Scotland, which WordOfGod has confirmed was intended as a teaser for the fourth game. After it became apparent that ''[=GK4=]'' wasn't going to get funding, Jensen apparently briefly considered turning her material into a novel. Needless to say, nearly twenty years on neither a game nor a novel has appeared yet, and though ''[=GK4=]'' is still officially on Jane Jensen's to-do list, there's no telling when or if it'll happen at this point.

* AllStarCast: While making the first ''Gabriel Knight'', everyone at Sierra probably stopped working when Creator/MarkHamill, Creator/TimCurry, Creator/MichaelDorn, Creator/MaryKayBergman, Creator/JimCummings, Creator/JeffBennett and so many other stars stopped by their office to record their lines.

* HeyItsThatGuy: The fan Grace meets in chapter two of ''The Beast Within'' is [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Ms. Appleby]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/TimCurry as Gabriel in the first and third installments. Also [[Series/TheKingOfQueens Leah Remini]] as Grace (first game only), [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Michael Dorn]] as Dr. John, and MarkHamill as Mosely! Iconic, veteran voice actors Creator/JeffBennett and Creator/JimCummings also had minor roles.
** Hell, just check out [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109865/fullcredits#cast the imdb page]], and prepare to have your mind ''blown''.
** Some of the voice actors have done voice work in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series, including Jennifer Hale [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid (Naomi Hunter]] and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Emma Emmerich)]], Gregg Berger and David Allen Thomas [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater (The Pain and The Sorrow respectively)]], Richard Doyle [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater (The Fury]] and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Big Boss)]], and Dorian Harewood [[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance (Prime Minister N'Mani)]].

** The motorcycle in ''Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned'' was supposed to be driven in a first person perspective. An arcade-style sequence where Gabriel escapes the Night Visitors, who pursue him as swarms of bats, was also planned, but eventually scrapped.

** Unlike Gabriel, Grace has been played by a different actor in every game: [[KingOfQueens Leah Remini]] in the original, Joanne Takahashi in the live action ''Beast Within'', Charity James in ''Blood of the Sacred'', and Cissy Jones in the remake.
