* DarkerAndEdgier: Some of the monster desgings in the Monster Fighters theme are merely more serious and played-straight versions of figures from the Minifigures line, like Lord Vampyre, the Crazy Scientist, his Monster, and the Mummy.

** The company itself is more of a TechnicalPacifist that allows for FamilyFriendlyFirearms. Depictions of medieval or futuristic warfare are apparently fine (consider the Castle, Pirates and Star Wars sets). It's just the modern and [[WorldWarI World]] [[WorldWarII Wars]] era that LEGO firmly refuses to cover. The only exceptions are a series of [[http://www.ibrickcity.com/lego-10226-sopwith-camel/ collector's]] [[http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/10024_Red_Baron models]] featuring a Sopwith Camel and a Fokker Triplane, two World War I fighter planes, as well as a handful of [[Franchise/IndianaJones Indiana Jones]] sets featuring the [[http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/7198_Fighter_Plane_Attack Pilatus P-2]] (which admittedly never saw combat, being intended as a "trainer" aircraft) which in addition includes another World War I fighter in the Albatros D.III, and the [[http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/7683_Fight_on_the_Flying_Wing Horten Ho 229,]] a World War II bomber which also never saw combat by virtue of being an incomplete prototype by the time the war ended. Furthermore, the F-86 Sabre and Mark VIII heavy tank both have official designs depicted in [[VideoGame/LegoIndianaJones Lego Indiana Jones 2]], but never released into physical sets.

* OurDragonsAreDifferent: LEGO have produced a number of dragons over the years; single 'big fig' figures in the [=1980s=] and [=1990s=] in the same vein as LEGO horses, more advanced ones with additional articulation in the [=2000s=], and block-based dragons with large articulation in the [=2010s=] ''Elves'' line. Almost all are quadrupedal with two additional wing limbs. The ''Elves'' line feature friendly magical dragons varying in size from a small car to a building, while previous sets - typically the ''Castle'' line - feature traditional knights and dragon slaying.

Creator/PhilLord and Creator/ChrisMiller (the ''Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet'' movie, ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'') [[http://collider.com/lego-movie-greenlight/126173/ penned and directed the first live-action/animated theatrical LEGO movie]], called ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'', released in 2014. And, as the first trailer reveals, the movie itself takes from both classic LEGO characters as well as its newer licensed success; Franchise/{{Batman}} is a main character (with cameos from Franchise/{{Superman}}, Franchise/WonderWoman, the Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, and others) along side one of the generic Builder dudes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPnY2NjSjrg Here's the first trailer.]] [[http://www.awn.com/news/films/universal-develop-lego-hero-factory-feature And Universal picked up the rights to produce the first movie based on]] ''Toys/HeroFactory'', the SpiritualSuccessor to Toys/{{Bionicle}}.
