* MisaimedMarketing: Cleverly averted. The 2016 DC Super Heroes set manage to tie in loosely to ''Film/SuicideSquad'', but avoid any outcry over the subject material by using the comic versions of the Squad instead.

* In February 2010, ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' added an item that let you summon [=BRICKO=] bricks, which could be used to build equipment or monsters to fight.

(In a nod towards the trademark naming, the game says they should actually be called a "BRICKO™ Brand Funucational Construction System Core Unit", but nobody calls them that)

** ''Film/TheLEGOMovie'' depicts all themes as taking place concurrently. They are all part of the same planet but were separated into separate theme-based zones under the rule of President Business, with the setting of Toys/ClassicLEGOSpace literally being a brick wall away from the settings of the Wild West and Toys/LEGOCastle themes. [[spoiler:In reality, the entire LEGO world is the basement of "The Man Upstairs", with each zone represented by a different table. This may imply that LEGO's canon is all based on how each LEGO builder perceives it, and thus its inherent subjectivity explains why the canon is so unreliable.]]

* LiteralMinded: Some of their tongue-in-cheek humor counts as this. In the Brick Bank set, the criminals smuggle stolen money out of the building via a hidden door in one of the washing machines ( in the neighboring shop), which leads to an empty air vent. In other words, they're money launderers.

* UnreliableCanon: Trying to decipher the canon (outside of its more story-oriented themes such as ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'') can be a real mess, though it hasn't stopped many from trying. Perhaps the greatest unreliability is the LEGO timeline and universe. ** Some sources state that each [[Toys/LEGOThemes theme]] takes place in its respective era. For example, Toys/LEGOPirates takes place in the 1700s during the Golden Age of Piracy. ''VideoGame/{{LEGOLAND}}'', the first ''VideoGame/LEGORacers'', and Toys/LEGOTimeCruisers ''LEGO Mania'' comics apply TimeTravel as a HandWave for {{crossover}}s. ** On the other hand, there are so many {{crossover}}s between LEGO themes (such as ''[[Videogame/LEGOIsland LEGO Island 2]]'', ''Videogame/LEGOUniverse'', ''Soccer Mania'', and countless LEGO magazine comics) ''without'' the TimeTravel HandWave that it would seem that most LEGO themes take place concurrently. For example, this means Toys/LEGOPirates would take place in 1989, simultaneously with Toys/LEGOSpacePolice. ** Other sources (such as ''Videogame/LEGOUniverse'', ''Film/LEGOTheAdventuresOfClutchPowers'', and one [[Toys/LEGOSpace UFO]]/[[Toys/LEGOCastle Fright Knights]] commercial) imply that all themes take place concurrently, but each on their own separate planet. For example, the 2007 Toys/LEGOCastle theme would take place in 2007 but on the castle-themed planet Ashlar. ** The Toys/LEGOTimeCruisers comics from ''World Club Magazine'' which interprets the many LEGO themes as TheMultiverse, but even within certain universes there are unexpected crossovers. For example, there's one universe which has [[Toys/LEGOSpace UFO]] and [[Toys/LEGOCastle Fright Knights]] interacting on Castle Planet (tying into the previously-mentioned commercial), and another universe which has Wild West, Extreme Team, Res-Q, and [[Toys/LEGOAdventurers Adventurers]] all taking place simultaneously. ** ''Film/TheLEGOMovie'' depicts all themes as taking place concurrently. They are all part of the same planet but were separated into separate theme-based zones under the rule of President Business, with the setting of Toys/ClassicLEGOSpace literally being a brick wall away from the settings of the Wild West and Toys/LEGOCastle themes. [[spoiler:In reality, the entire LEGO world is the basement of "The Man Upstairs", with each zone represented by a different table. This may imply that LEGO's canon is all based on how each LEGO builder perceives it, and thus its inherent subjectivity explains why the canon is so unreliable.]] ** When EveryoneIsRelated, things become even more unreliable. For instance, [[Franchise/LEGOAlphaTeam Evil Ogel]] is the great-great-great-great-great-grandson of [[Toys/KnightsKingdom2 Lord Vladek]], implying that the two themes take place seven generations apart. But wait, there's more! The [[Toys/LEGOMinifigures Evil Knight]] served under both Lord Vladek and [[Toys/LEGOCastle Cedric the Bull]], who has interacted with the casts of ''VideoGame/LEGOIsland'' and ''Soccer Mania'', both of which had a {{crossover}} with Alpha Team in one of the ''LEGO Magazine'' comics... which would imply that Alpha Team and the second Knights' Kingdom themes take place around the same time, not seven generations apart. And let's not get started on [[Toys/LEGOAdventurers Johnny Thunder's]] [[Toys/LEGOTimeCruisers family]] [[Toys/LEGODino tree]]...
