** This became Ascended Fridge Brilliance in ''Love and War'', wherein Rex even directly compares understanding Amanda's expressions to understanding the language of the dinosaurs.



* According to WordOfGod, after the events of ''Dino Attack RPG'', Tex stays with Fullmetal until her dying day, and Tex will die at the age of 117 while Fullmetal will die at the age of 124. Seems fair enough... until you remember that Fullmetal was 21 when Tex was born, meaning that, when you do out the math, these given ages indicate that Tex will die 14 years after Fullmetal. Does this mean that WritersCannotDoMath? Or... does it mean that, after Fullmetal dies, Tex will [[GraveMarkingScene stay by his grave]] [[ExcessiveMourning for the next 14 years, feeling too depressed to leave]], until she finally joins him in death?

* Why did Zero GoMadFromTheRevelation at the end of ''The Madness of Agent Zero''? Obviously, it's because he [[spoiler:developed MediumAwareness and knows he's a fictional character]], but it's actually far worse than that. Due to AuthorExistenceFailure, Zero's story cannot be continued by BZP Noob #30000, and this is referenced in the story when "Rex" tells Zero that his "guiding hand" has been lost. Therefore, Zero isn't merely finding out that [[spoiler:he's the fictional plaything of a greater power... but that he's been abandoned by his own creator]]. Poor guy.

** Knowing that Cam O'Cozy was just an act (as opposed to characters like Duke), it is less horrifying. [=ShadowTech=], on the other hand, is much closer to [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazism incarnate]]. Even though Jackson Lake intended for it to be based upon the Eugenics movement, it's when you think about the various characterizations of [=ShadowTech=] over the years and how they come together that lead inevitably to the comparisons with Nazi Germany. [=ShadowTech=] has been depicted as an organization that was using the Dino Attack as a means of weeding out the "strong" from the "weak", trying to take natural selection and survival of the fittest into its own hands in order [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans to "improve" the Minifig race, even if it meant the deaths of billions]] (horribly reminiscent of Nazi Germany's methods of achieving a "master race"... the holocaust). Those that oppose their plan, such as Dino Attack Team, often found themselves attacked and kidnapped by mysterious soldiers dressed entirely in black (uncannily similar to the Gestapo). Of course, there's the "EverythingSoundsMenacingInGerman" trope, and the fact that the organization was founded by a German family ([[NamesToRunAwayFrom/ForeignLanguageNames whose name contains the German word for "Shadow", no less]]) causes one to think of the "AllGermansAreNazis" trope. [[AndThatsTerrible And]] ''[[AndThatsTerrible that's]]'' [[AndThatsTerrible horrifying]].

* Why were Schiess/Trigger and Montoya able to so easily escape Silencia Venomosa after the car crash? Because their car caught on fire, and therefore she just logically assumed that they died in the fire. Even so, wouldn't you expect a seasoned killer like Venomosa to [[DoubleTap check to make sure they were dead]]? However, remember that it has been established that Venomosa suffers from pyrophobia because her home burned down when she was only a child. She wouldn't want to go anywhere near the car while it was still burning, and she probably couldn't risk waiting around for the flames to go out (since such a crash would definitely attract attention, something she deliberately avoids) to check for their bodies.

*** On a related note, Andrea Jackson may be married to a fine young girl but it's easy to forget that she's subject to hallucinations, possibly due to schizophrenia developed in her bunker. That combined with her own father being institutionalized plus potentially traumatic memories of him and the actual war is likely to have permanent psychological damage even with years of therapy and a loving girlfriend to support her.
* This may have been brought up before, but despite being a MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate and DrJerk, it ''does'' seem a little odd that Medic would randomly decide to remove a patient's skeleton for no particularly good reason, especially when you consider that the incident that nearly cost him his medical license was the only account of him doing something that bad. Everywhere else he is depicted as being competent but simply looking down on the other doctors or getting more pleasure out of cutting open his patients than actually helping them. Why would he remove a man's entire skeleton? Perhaps the real process was actually something slightly more feasible and the media just blew it out of proportion. For instance Pierce could have walked in on Medic removing a few bones. However, Medic is usually depicted as knowing what he is doing despite questionable methods, so taking this logic into account, Pierce's interference may have been what ''really'' botched the surgery. NiceJobBreakingItHero indeed.

[[AC:FridgeLogic]]
* Axle was supposedly brought to the LEGO planet due to a "teleport malfunction" which brings up a lot of questions. First, how exactly does a teleport malfunction cause a person to travel across multiple galaxies? Second, even if that were to happen, just what exactly are the odds that the person would just happen to land on their home planet. Third, why didn't the rest of the Rock Raiders try to take advantage of this? Wouldn't such a convenient malfunction be a good way to get home and send a rescue? After all, they did not know about the Dino Attack.
* In the original Pirates RPG, Elizabeth was a privateer working for the Imperials. This is all well and good until you consider that that region is based on colonization in the late 17th and 18th centuries (though it does inherit some elements of the early 19th century). This was a period when women were seen as inferior, and were expected to do little more than stay at home, cook, and raise children. Now granted, there are real-life cases of ruthless female pirates, but typically women would never be allowed in the navy, so how exactly does a young woman become a privateer?
* Granted, [[LEGOUniverse Paradox]] is a shady faction that does questionable Maelstrom experiments and isn't exactly trusted by the other Nexus Force factions, but at the end of the day, Paradox is still considered one of the good guys and its only true enemy is the Maelstrom. So, who would hire Trigger (who is essentially a hired ''gun'' as opposed to, say, a hired spy) to do work against Paradox, and why?
** While the true identity of his employers is still unclear, one rational explanation could come right from Paradox's shady nature. Even if its utlimate goals are good, the way the organization could have worked might have made them a few enemies, if only in the form of conspiracy theorists speculating on what they've "really" been doing. We don't even know the exact nature of Trigger's jobs against Paradox, and they could have ranged from anything from breaking into their labs in order to steal information and/or sabotage experiments to attempting to destroy potential sources of the Maelstrom in order to prevent research from being conducted. In theory, this could pretty much have been any organization with a ton of money that either considered their actions morally or legally inacceptable (possibly wanting to shut them down, while they're ultimately good guys there's bound to be people who disagree), felt there was some form of profit to be gained from information and wanted it for their own purposes (so basically any multi-million dollar corporataion), or a combination of those two... or maybe even multiple ones.
* In 2008, Hertz received a job in which he had to decode a message, which turned out to be about XERRD and the Dino Attack. Granted, events that would found XERRD were put into motion happened no later than 2008 (the year in which Dr. Einstein received the assignment to keep tabs on Dr. Rex), but the organization was not founded until 2009. The name XERRD came about as the result of a contest held among its members that year. [[spoiler:[[TheManBehindTheMan Baron Typhonus]]]] was the true mastermind behind the Dino Attack, but he didn't think of it until Dr. Rex rediscovered old documents later that year. So, while it is plausible that the coded message could contain some early plans by Dr. Rex to defect from Paradox and form his own organization, how could the message contain XERRD's name or any information on the Dino Attack itself... at least a year before either was first conceived?
** Considering the exact nature of the message is unclear, (Hertz only glimpsed random words that were taken out of context as it was decoded.) it could have been about any number of events relating to Dr. Rexís activities in 2008. Well Dr. Rex did not have access to the mutation serum in the year the message was written it still could contain his personal ambitions for an eventual Dino Attack, which at the time he was incapable of.
** Itís also likely that even though XERRD was officially founded in 2009 Dr. Rex would need an extraordinary amount of time to gather the recourses to create such a powerful organization.He would have needed to recruit enough red shirts to run the numerous basses he would eventually construct. Even with the help of the Baran Typhonus in 2010 he would still have needed time before then to gather the thousands of guards and staff necessary.
** In addition the money and materials that would be needed to construct the basses he built on Dino and Adventurersí island would take years to collect and it would several months for the builders to build them. Itís possible that the message that Hertz received could have been Dr. Rex appealing to his colleagues for money or sharing his eventual aspirations for a Dino Attack.
** The creation of such a large and far-reaching origination in a matter of months is unlikely. It would have required years of planning. Chances are he came up with the idea earlier then 2008 but was incapable of actually starting XERRD and the Dino attack in till years latter when he came in contact with [[spoiler:Baron Typhonus]].
*** Sure, Dr. Rex could have planning to found XERRD as early as 2008, but that's not the FridgeLogic here. The problem is that the coded message somehow contained information on the Dino Attack itself. XERRD's original goal was completely unrelated to the Dino Attack until 2010; the organization was founded [[ForScience for scientific research]], not for mutating dinosaurs. The Dino Attack was not Dr. Rex's idea; it was [[spoiler:Baron Typhonus's]] idea, but [[spoiler:Typhonus]] did not learn about the formula stolen by Dr. Rex until late 2009, since Dr. Rex had forgotten all about the formula until he accessed his old Alpha Team files. In summary: in 2008, the Dino Attack did not exist at all, not in plans, in concept, or even in thought. So the FridgeLogic here is: how could the coded message know about something that [[spoiler:Baron Typhonus]] would plan... long before [[spoiler:Baron Typhonus]] even thought about it in the first place?
** Ultimately, as a result of this FridgeLogic, that guy from that show {{retcon}}ned this scene to take place in early 2010, thus removing the Fridge Logic.
* Silencia Venomosa is a mysterious figure who has never been caught by the authorities, and the little evidence of her existence is a few blurry low-resolution stills from security feeds. How, then, did Dr. Glados's device scan Amanda's face and recognize her as Venomosa? Even with XERRD's technology, it's very unlikely that they could have been able to invent something to interpret such grainy photos to such a precise scanning device. This could have been easily [[HandWave Hand Waved]] since Walter Breen was one of Venomosa's employers, except WordOfGod made it an explicit point that Breen never met Venomosa face-to-face, so this clearly does not work either.
* Dude was rejected by Dino Attack Team on the basis of having a stupid codename. Yet Dino Attack Team is also so desperate for troops that they'd be willing to hire Duke, Baldrick, Pyro, French Fries, Firecracker, and countless other lunatics who should belong in an asylum rather than on a team. What would be accomplished by rejecting Dude for his codename, then?
** Part of the problem here is that this isn't some discrepancy between different writers, [[ContinuityDrift but one single writer]]. [[WordOfGod Atton Rand]] says that Dino Attack was desperate enough to hire Baldrick (i.e. beggars cannot be choosers), and yet states that Dude was rejected for no reason other than a stupid codename (i.e. beggars ''can'' be choosers). Uh... which Dino Attack Team are we talking about? These two depictions definitely seem mutually exclusive.
* It's been established in-canon that Mutant Dinosaurs can't stand the cold, so the only logical place to build facilities to hold the entire population of the planet is... Antarctica? This is a bit odd when you consider that Antarctica is ''not'' the only location on the planet with a cold environment, plus it would be a very difficult region for the average person to get to, especially everyone living in the Northern Hemisphere. There are some good Northern Areas that would be easier to reach that in theory should have sufficiently cold climates, so why not also build facilities in say... the Arctic, or in Europe the Northern parts of Russia and maybe Siberia. If nothing else it would make Antarctica ''slightly'' less overpopulated, plus the northern regions have a greater abundance of wildlife (potential food sources should there be any shortage of reserves) and in those areas it may be easier to collect resources that can be used to make weapons, ammunition, and vehicles for that whole Dino Attack Team thing than it would be in the Antarctic.
** There's nothing stating that Antarctica is the ''only'' refugee facility in the whole planet. In fact, ''December 21, 2010'' even makes reference to an establishment at Mount Everest. I wouldn't be surprised if the old Polar Base used by the Arctic team was also expanded and made home to refugees. However, given that Alpha Team (especially as shown in ''Alpha Team: Mission Deep Freeze RPG'') has already established a large headquarters in Antarctica, plus there ''must'' have been some Antarctic equivalent to the Arctic team and their Polar Base, it was probably easier to establish a well-defended facility in Antarctica than it would be in the real world. On top of all that, another reason why Antarctica was probably favored over regions such as Mount Everest is because it is largely an isolated continent, whereas the Himalayas are landlocked, which would make it more difficult for Mutant Dinos from neighboring regions to invade. Even Vikings Isle, with a largely arctic climate, was invaded by Mutant Pterosaurs and fire-breathing Mutant Lizards, probably because it was located so close to mainland Europe. What I'm saying is that there are most likely other refugee facilities in cold regions of the world, but for the aforementioned reasons, Antarctica is home to the largest facilities.
** That, or you can have the FridgeHorror that the possible reason Antarctica was not overpopulated... [[InferredHolocaust is because the majority of the world population did not make it]].
* Was a [[spoiler: self-induced lobotomy]] really the best solution for Wallace Bishop? I mean, the guy was a respected scientist, surely he would have considered the money he owed to whoever financed his experiments. His lab partner was apparently very close but did he not consider the child his own sister was struggling to raise at the same time? Yes, it would be sad to lose a close friend like that, but aren't there therapists who specialize in helping people deal with this sort of thing? On the other hand, why didn't he consider the possibility that Sarah might have trouble paying all of his debts?
** Remember that Wallace had already [[GoMadFromTheIsolation Gone Mad From The Isolation]] after being locked up for years in Napoleon XIV with no contact with Sarah or Kate; madness does not lead to logical thinking, and what your reasoning would have required logical thinking. Also, recall that his lab partner was more than "a close friend" to him; being a barren man, Wallace considered her as the closest thing he had to a ''daughter'' of his own, and the death of a child really can cause severe psychological problems, especially since Wallace views himself as responsible for her death. After she died and he was committed to Napoleon XIV, logically thinking through what would be the best solution was not something Wallace was capable of doing at the time. You cannot apply logic to madness.
* Why is it that every time a person has psychological problems the immediate response is to send them to the Napoleon XIV institution? I mean, it can't be the only psychatric hospital on the planet, and it seems to have a reputation for being very poorly maintained, so why does nobody ever try first consulting a psychologist (Dr. Bishop's grief could probably have been handled better if he'd started seeing a therapist and had support from his family rather than being locked up and isolated in the mental hospital) or if they really feel that the patient needs to be interned in a hospital, why not try somewhere ''other'' than Napoleon XIV. There's got to be other psychiatric wards that are a heck of a letter better, even if only speaking comparitively.
** Keep in mind that Mr. Bonaparte seems to deliberately cover up Napoleon XIV's flaws to avoid bad press. As far as the public knows, Napoleon XIV is just as good as any other place (for that matter, keep in mind that we have only seen ''three'' patients of Napoleon XIV, and it is likely that other mental hospitals do exist but for the sake of storytelling simplicity it just so happens that all three cases were committed to the same hospital).
** Neither Athena Fabello, who murdered her son, nor Carl Lutsky, who murdered Dust, could be miraculously cured by a psychologist; they could, however, plead insanity in court and be committed to a mental hospital (in this case, Napoleon XIV) instead of prison. Although not explicitly stated, it's also most likely that Wallace Bishop also committed some horrible act in his grief that led to a plea of insanity in court.

*** Pierce has quite a life cut out for him. His daughter is severely traumatized, addicted to drugs, and close to catatonic while his wife is an insomniac overwhelmed by guilt. Since Frank Einstein is dead, Walter is still institutionalized, and there's no clear record of any family on his side, Pierce is the only one who can bring in any kind of money for the family and has literally no one to turn to for help.
*** Rotor and Cabin's final post was already rather bleak, but considering their already deteriorating relationship combined with both suffering severe PTSD and having difficulty adjusting to a post-war society it can only get worse. Assuming they aren't outright DrivenToSuicide, it wouldn't be hard to imagine either of them becoming an alcoholic, getting involved with drugs, or both.

** Granted, the Amish community keeps to such a lifestyle at least in part because of their religion, which is not as obvious an incentive in the context of the RPG (considering the only explicitly religious character from Castle Cove is Pharisee, who is probably not a good representative of the average person from there). It ''might'' make a small amount of sense if there was a group of people who for whatever reason decided it was better to live in the vein of Medieval Peasants, which would entail living in small villages and living a life of farming or other simple trades (i.e. blacksmith, carpenter, etc.), but going as far as to bring in Castles and a system of Monarchy with knights? It would be interesting for there to be a particular location in which the government enjoys adopting late 18th/early 19th century architecture and fashions out of a sense of tradition if nothing else, though sticking to old-fashioned weaponry for anything other than ceremonial purposes does seem somewhat impractical.

impractical.
*** This isn't so much about the ''why'' as it is about the ''what''. Why do the pirates and knights continue to use outdated technology and weaponry? Your guess is as good as mine. But what I'm trying to point out is that the existence of MedievalStasis communities in a modern society is actually TruthInTelevision. For whatever the reason may be, populations in areas like Castle Cove and Pirates Forbidden Island have chosen to forsake modern technology in favor of continuing to use their traditional technology, like the Amish have.

* Some skeptics ask, in regards to the ''Dino Attack RPG'' timeline, why would pirates and knights (and other such groups) continue to use outdated technology despite the existence of modern civilizations? Pirates Forbidden Island and Castle Cove aren't isolated from the rest of the planet and are well-aware of modern technology thanks to events such as the [[VideoGame/LEGORacers LEGO Racing Championships]], yet consciously continue to use their own technology instead. Why? Although the reasons are likely very different from those of the pirates and knights (due to the rather downplayed role of religion in the ''Dino Attack RPG'' universe), there ''is'' a very similar case of MedievalStasis in real life: the Amish. Although they are well-aware of modern technology and will use it in certain situations, for the most part they instead elect to live a life that is not very different from the lives of those who lived around the 18th century. Now, imagine a group of people like the Amish, but instead modelling their lifestyle after those in the medieval ages, the golden age of piracy, and so on and so forth. With that in mind, the idea that pirates and knights could coexist with modern society is not so far-fetched as it may seem.
