* A pair of minifigures actually serve as the flight attendants of the backpack in which [[{{Franchise/Barbie}} Barbie and Ken]] arrive in the ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' short "Hawaiian Vacation."
** A LEGO rabbit appears in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStoryOfTerror''. Notably, it's able to use the bricks it's made up of to shapeshift into objects the characters need, like a stairwell.
* A BlackComedy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2i_CKDrZUw sketch from]] ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' wrings plenty of horror from the PerpetualSmiler expression typical of LEGO minifigures. Just a few of the show's other LEGO-themed sketches include "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqmWWLWLYsE The Great Pyramid]]", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udKbB-di1oY LEGO My Pieces]]", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHaDiyA-0BY LEGO Babel]]", and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGAqY9f9tWg LEGO Star Wars]]" (with Billy Dee Williams reprising his role of Lando Calrissian).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperDeformed: The aesthetic of the Super Heroes Mighty Micros minifigures, using short legs and having simple yet exaggerated cartoon designs.

* 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 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.
