** FutureMeScaresMe: Lord Sam Sinister made it known that he was afraid of Fssinister. Even Evil Ogel felt uncomfortable around Fogel.

** In ''Love and War'', Zero refers to the new Dino Attack Headquarters as a "tower of trials". This references BZP Noob #30000's original version of the story, in which the new building was called the Tower of Eight Trials.
** Related to the above, Phantom tells Rex that Zero saw a "super Mutant Pterosaur" in the hangar on the headquarters' top floor, although he later reveals that there might not have been a super Mutant Pterosaur at all. This references the Super Mutant Pterosaur located on the top floor hangar of the Tower of Eight Trials, which very quickly became part of an AbortedArc.



*** NamesToRunAwayFrom/{{Weapons}}: "Hooks" and "Dark Sword" (also known as Fssinister and Fladek).

*** NamesToRunAwayFrom/{{Weapons}}: "Hooks" and "Dark Sword" (also known as Fssinister Finister and Fladek).



** It's subtly implied in ''Love and War'' that Phantom recovered from his amnesia because Zero accidentally jogged his memory by mentioning Frozeen's name.



* OffscreenInertia: An example due to [[AuthorExistenceFailure PeabodySam being unable to post for a few days]], resulting in a scenario that ended up being slightly {{retcon}}ned due to FridgeLogic. Rex and Amanda begin hugging in Specs's office. Engineer spots TheMole, tracks him down, and then [[spoiler:gets murdered]]. He is soon found by Trigger and other Dino Attack agents. Trigger, believing Silencia Venomosa to be responsible, tracks down Amanda in Specs's office. When he gets there, Rex and Amanda are still hugging.



* OnceMoreWithClarity: At one point during the Second Headquarters Squad's mission, Scout received a phone call, and readers are only given Scout's side of the conversation, [[TraitorShot which sounds very suspicious]]. The full conversation was later revealed in an OOC post, revealing that [[spoiler:it was just his mother on the other end, and there was [[RedHerringMole actually nothing suspicious]] about the phone call.]]



* OrwellianRetcon: Given the nature of Website/{{BZPower}}, wherein players can edit their own posts at will, this has taken place every now and then, usually when a player is adding in a piece of information he originally forgot or when a player is [[CanonDiscontinuity decanonizing something he wrote]]. For example, Dr. Cyborg's revelation of Pterisa's origins vanished without a trace after Andrewnuva199 asked avmatoran to retcon it.

* OrwellianRetcon: OriginsEpisode: In a way, each of [=PeabodySam=]'s short stories serves as one for how a particular character: ''Merciful Escape'' for Rex, ''First Assignment'' for Trouble, ''Love and War'' for Amanda, and ''The Huntsman'' for Ata.

** A subverted example during Amanda's escape from the Dino Island Laboratory. There was originally a post where Amanda revealed herself to be telepathic. Shortly afterward, this post was edited to remove all references to telepathy, which was now considered CanonDiscontinuity. The ironic subversion is that, thanks to the Wayback Machine archiving the RPG prior to the edit, the pre-retcon version of the post is the only version that is currently available (and therefore included in the downloadable archive, along with an editor's note explaining that the telepathy is non-canon). This means that the Orwellian retcon itself has undergone the Orwellian treatment.

** Some details of the "Kotua and Chaos" era were Rewritten to better connect some plot elements to more recent plot developments. For instance, [=ShadowTech=]'s creation of Chaos was connected to their study of the Maelstrom, and the mysterious tower that inexplicably (and never was explained) showed up in place of the destroyed Dino Attack Headquarters has been changed to a new Dino Attack Headquarters built by Brick League United.

** In ''Dino Attack RPG'', the Future Villains travel back in time using a formula that Zero once wrote on a piece of cardboard. On Dino Attack RPG Wiki, this was reimagined as the Future Villains traveling back in time through illegal use of a [[Toys/LEGOTimeCruisers Hypno Disc]].

''Love and War'' gives a brief nod to Zero's original hand in this storyline, by having him be the first one to figure out that Finister is Sam Sinister from the future.



*** It's unknown if this will be canonized, but Andrewnuva199 expressed interest in explaining BZP Noob #30000's now non-canon Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}-related material as Zero slowly suffering a mental breakdown.

** A half-asleep Shaw gets the job of keeping an eye on Enter and Return. From what little she could gather their operation involved the use of a megaphone, a pineapple, a DVD copy of ''TheHurtLocker'', a basketball, two lumps of sugar, a steering wheel, a baseball bat, a film camera, a mailbox, a pine tree, a shrubbery, a herring, 16 tons of TNT, a frying pan, a model train, a bicycle wheel, a single dollar, a map of LEGO Island, a book on aeronautics, a toy car, a lunchbox, a suitcase, a spoonful of honey, a bananna, a pointed stick, a fedora, running into each other and then arguing over whose clothes were whose, [[EverythingsSatiatingWithSandwiches a sandwich]], a copy of the complete works of HPLovecraft, a bag of nitroglycerin, a rolled up magazine, a few raspberries, a chicken leg, a turkey dinner, another bush, a brick, a can of soda, a wafer thin mint, a slip of paper, and a jolly roger. Too bad Shaw wasn't awake enough to observe the process for medical research.

** A much more literal case occurs in the form of various rock bands arriving to calm down the refugees. Among the rock stars were DavidBowie and {{Queen}} (including their lead singer Freddie Mercury, despite the fact that he's been dead for 20 years) who both appeared in person during the climax of the Antarctica story arc.

* ThePowerOfRock: In a nod to ''[[VideoGame/LEGOAdaptationGame LEGO Rock Band]]'', various rock groups such as DavidBowie and {{Queen}} attempted to calm the Antarctica riots with rock music. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Greybeard, who doubted that it would work, and Lord Vladek, who [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant reminisced about times when The Power of Rock meant dropping a boulder on someone]].

** The last known sighting of Evil Ogel was apparently aboard his personal rocket en route to Nimbus System. File divers have discovered a DummiedOut NPC named "Ogel" in the ''VideoGAme/LEGOUniverse'' files, who appears to be modeled after Evil Ogel but bearing the Paradox emblem on his sleeve, hinting that ''LEGO Universe'' developers intended to bring Ogel back as a Paradox operative [[WhatCouldHaveBeen had the game not been cancelled]]. Based on this, it is most likely that Evil Ogel is traveling to Nimbus System so that he can join the Paradox faction of Nexus Force.
** The comm chatter in ''First Assignment'' contains a number of these gags. One comment suggests sending a team of six heroes to deal with the Mutant Dino threat at Enchanted Island, which makes a lot more sense when one considers that a retcon replaced Mata Nui with Enchanted Island when ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' content was removed from the RPG. Another comment accuses his teammates of being children, referencing ''Dino Attack RPG'''s early problems with underage ChildSoldiers.

There's also an argument on the comm chatter over whether Zed of ''LEGO Alpha Team'' or Jake Raines of ''LEGO Pharaoh's Quest'' just joined Dino Attack Team, referencing the fact that Rex (who, in ''First Assignment'', was a rookie that just joined the team) was first represented with Zed's head and later represented with Jake's head; the former was also referenced during the Goo Caverns story arc when an Ogel Drone mistook Rex for Zed.

*** Interestingly, Montoya's name has an unintentional double meaning. While it was originally intended as a shout-out to Trigger's inspiration, he also shares the name with Inigo Montoya, a swordsman from ''ThePrincessBride''. Much like how [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya Inigo]] [[PrepareToDie was determined to find]] [[YouKilledMyFather the man who killed his father]], Montoya is determined to find revenge on the woman who killed his partners.

*** Some of Chompy's dialogue in ''Dino Attack RPG'' suggests that he suffered some emotional scarring as a result of Dr. Kilroy giving him to Frozeen in ''Alpha Team: Mission Deep Freeze RPG''. Even though Dr. Kilroy did it out of gratitude to Alpha Team and Frozeen was a NiceGuy who always cared for Chompy, being taken from his family at such a young age without any say in the matter was probably not the best thing for Chompy.

-->Having nothing, not even memories to look back upon, left him with a terrible, overwhelming emptiness that often kept him awake at night. He often felt as though he was peering into a black hole, fearing that what little remained of him would soon be dragged into the darkness as well. At times, he could feel that it was only his sense of purpose in joining Dino Attack Team that kept him grounded in reality.
