* {{LEGO}} and its products get so much of this it's not funny:
** None of the characters in ''{{BIONICLE}}'' are "Bionicles". WordOfGod says it means "biological chronicle", in that it chronicles the biological workings of a HumongousMecha ([[WordSaladTitle which only became clear after the creators explained it]]), and you can count the times it is used in-story on one hand (generally as a piece of MagiBabble, "the way of the Bionicle" or some such). Unfortunately, even LEGO fell into this trap on occasion; for example, the last wave of toys included pieces of gold-colored armor for one character to wear, which the packaging advertised as "Collect the Golden Bionicle!" *{{facepalm}}*
** Then there's the term "Legos", which under pretty much any circumstance ''will'' hit the FandomBerserkButton. The name of the company that makes the toys is "The LEGO Group" ("LEGO" being a contraction of the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play well"). Their famous childrens' construction toy products are "LEGO bricks". The only time they themselves use the singular term "LEGO" is when referring to the corporation or its business, so using "Legos" actually implies multiples of the corporation, not their bricks; also, it's a ''very'' grating-sounding word. The company does not like this trope, with a strong insistence on their products being correctly named. The fandom, for the most part, [[BerserkButton is in strong agreeance]].
** Those little figurines that come in LEGO sets? They are called "minifigures", or are abbreviated to "minifigs". They are not "Legos" either.
* There is no Liv doll actually named Liv. Similarly, none of the Moxie Girlz is named Moxie.

* None of the characters in {{Lego}}'s ''{{Bionicle}}'' line are "Bionicles". WordOfGod says it means "biological chronicle" ([[WordSaladTitle whatever that's supposed to mean]]), and you can count the times it is used in-story on one hand (generally as a piece of MagiBabble, "the way of the Bionicle" or some such). Unfortunately, even Lego falls into this trap; for example, the last wave of toys included pieces of gold-colored armor for one character to wear, which the packaging advertised as "Collect the Golden Bionicle!" * {{facepalm}}*
* It is less dramatic (or is it?) but those little dolls that come in Lego sets are not called "Legos" either. They are called mini figures.
** "Lego men" seems to be the most common name for them; most people know the bricks are Legos
*** Lego aficionados call the people that come in the sets by the same term used by the manufacturer: "minifigures," or "minifigs" for short.
* The term "Legos" is itself an example of this trope. The name of the company that makes the toys is "The LEGO Group" ("LEGO" being a semi-acronym from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play-well"). The company calls their most popular product "LEGO bricks." The only time they themselves use the singular term "LEGO" is when referring to the corporation or its business, so using "Legos" actually implies multiples of the corporation, not their bricks. They have also in the past expressly requested people not use the term "Legos" for their toys, preferring "Lego bricks" or "Lego blocks."
