** These odd character choices even occur in the other lines. For example, the Music Festival line left out ''music-themed'' Operetta, Gloom and Bloom left out Honey, who definitely has a plant motif, and Meowlody is inexplicably included alone in the Ghouls' Getaway line. Abbey didn't get a Monster Exchange doll, despite accompanying Mari to the train station and recieving a Monster Picchu makeover in the process. Lagoona's reboot signature doll (wearing a short-cut hoodie) has yet to be seen, with Frankie, Draculaura, and Ari being released first.

There's also the glaring omission of a Great Scarier Reef doll for Gil.

* Much like how [[Franchise/EverAfterHigh Briar]] really should have been in ''Dragon Games,'' there are some weird decisions about who the specials leave out of their main casts. Jackson and Holt are barely in ''Freaky Fusion'', likely because their role as Frankie's love interest was being supplanted by Neighthan, at least temporarily; however, being half human and half monster, with all the drama that's caused them in the past, ''and'' already sharing a body would have made them perfect candidates for main cast. The de Niles are Jinafire's host family (according to doll diaries; ''Ghoulfriends'' puts her in a dorm with Skelita, but nothing else even mentions the school having dorms), so she really should have been in ''Boo York, Boo York.'' Frankie is the main character of Generation I, with Draculaura only replacing her in Generation II, so why hasn't she shown up in the Lost Movie at all? And Lagoona ''did'' have a major role in ''Freaky Fusion,'' but it should have been a completely different one, since the movie didn't even acknowledge that she is a Hybrid herself!

It also seems odd that Sirena became a prominent character after ''Freaky Fusion'', but she didn't appear in ''Great Scarrier Reef'', which might have given her a chance to learn more about her mermaid side.

to:

** Most likely to tie into ''Boo York, Boo York's'' foreshadowing the crossover that eventually happened in the Lost Movie. Same with how Astranova would fit better into the scrapped Luna High and Elle and Dayna would likewise correspond to the Robo and High Seas trademarks. Sadly, with Generation II on the horizon, we probably won't get a full fleshed-out cosmology.




to:

** Probably because the doll diaries have been developing the twins as separate individuals for years and Mattel wanted to put their dolls where their mouth was.

* Why are the Blue family the only known residents of the Great Scarrier Reef with humanoid legs? Yes, Lagoona was conceptualized before her backstory and place of origin were developed, but it only makes her fish transformation seem out-of-place.

* How do Peri and Pearl move around? In real cases of dicephalous conjoined twins, it's been proven that each twin controls the limbs on their side of the body, which applies to the arms, but as the Serpentines have one tail instead of a pair of legs, who controls their lower body and how?

*** Actually the tv specials and websodes are the same continuity, as well as the dairies açwith ony a few incongruences so they are just two or three continuties the websodes/tv special/movies, the boks and the dairies that tie in to the movies.

* Why is Meowlody included in the Ghouls' Getaway line when she, Purrsephone, and Toralei are inseparable characters, mainly due to the twins' [[FlatCharacter flatness]]?

* Meta question here. Besides the obvious (they're a line of fashion dolls), why are all of the monsters similar to conventionally attractive humans? Sure, they all have a few weird details, but on the whole, they all look like models. Is there any reason for the children of more bizarre monsters like the Hydra or a corpse flower to be humanoid?

** This is a children's franchise, so I highly doubt they thought through the implications all that much. People in the target age range, after all, probably wouldn't consider any of that stuff very deeply, if at all. Now, to actually answer parts of your question, I doubt vampire birthdays are considered all that important. This is Draculaura we're talking about, and she's definitely the sort who would throw a party for any reason she could; her birthday could just be an excuse to have one more party a year, and to get presents. Plus, 1600 years falls evenly into a whole new century, which could make it a comemorable occasion. I don't think she ages past the age she turned into a vampire. This likely is true of some of her friends, but not all of them. Cleo's functionally immortal as well, as long as she keeps her bandages on, and doesn't seem to age at all; Ghoulia and Spectra are more likely than not already dead, so they can't exactly age themselves (depending on how MH defines zombies/ghosts, which isn't entirely clear). Gigi's probably older than Draculaura is as well, though she might age; we don't know if she was born as a teen or not. I don't know if Frankie would really age at all, either, since she's not a biological human. Honestly, most of the student body is far older than they appear, and many of them seem to be immortal. The biggest question is probably whether or not the immortal students have just been held back a lot.
