''Legends of Chima'' is the new series of LEGO. Previews of the TV show began in late 2012, and the show itself debuted in July 2013 on Creator/CartoonNetwork.

Chima is a pristine land filled with many sentient animal tribes. Once at peace and in a state of balance, now they are at war over the Chi, a mystical energy source which gives a boost of energy to the animals and powers to their vehicles. The tribes have formed into two factions who now fight over the Chi. The Lions, Eagles, and Gorillas to protect the Chi. While Ravens, Wolves, and Crocodiles for gain. For Laval, this now involves fighting against his former friend Cragger who has become a leader of the opposing army.

A [[Characters/LegendsOfChima character sheet]] has been started. Needs WikiMagic.

----
!!Relevant tropes:
* AlliterativeFamily: Many of the characters have names that start with the letter of the species they are based on.
** E.g. Lion tribe has L names, Crocodile tribe has C names.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Most of the Wolves can be seen as this.
* AnimalEyes: all the inhabitants of chima, though it should be noted that some are more obvious than others.
* AnimalStereotypes / GoodAnimalsEvilAnimals: We have virtuous and noble lions and eagles, peace-loving gorillas, aggressive and villainous crocodiles, sinister thieving ravens, and savage, pack-oriented wolves.
** Subverted in several cases. Cragger for instance is prone to bad decisions, but isn't really evil; even when he becomes the main villain he's more BrainwashedAndCrazy thanks to Crooler's mind control spores. Even his parents seemed more interested in his safety and welfare than anything else. Crominius even helped out the wolves by unifying them together when they were in a state of civil war in an act of kindness.
* AppropriateAnimalAttire: When Worriz of the Wolf tribe gets his pants and fur ripped by a thorn plant, he covers himself with a [[HandOrObjectUnderwear giant leaf]].
* AttackTheTail
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: The Raven tribe's call for "[[OnlyInItForTheMoney Trinkets and Treasure!!]]"
* BadMoonRising: Played straight with the wolf as they go on a berserk rampage during the time of a certain moon. Averted with the skunks, who ironically spray sweet smells during that time.
* BalanceOfPower: Not one single tribe can have too much chi for utilization, otherwise, Chima suffers earthquakes and enormous dust storms.
* BareYourMidriff: Eris and Crooler.
* BerserkButton: ''Never'' steal the Wolves' "Mother Tooth".
** Same goes for Gorillas if they're on the verge of enlightenment.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Do ''not'' cut down the Gorillas' sacred tree, especially when they're on the verge of enlightenment.
* BigBadDuumvirate: Cragger and Crooler.
** After Crooler breaks the Wolves' pact with the Crocs, Worriz seems to have promoted himself to BigBad status.
* BigBadFriend: Cragger to Laval, after a sinkhole buried Cragger's parents. He feels it is Laval's fault.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Several tribes are portrayed as having this. The Beavers consider work ''fun'' and being given a break is a ''punishment'', for example.
* BreatherEpisode: Surprisingly, Episode 13, ''Crocodile Tears'' manages to be this. Taking place after the Crocs are captured by the Wolves, one would expect a suspenseful story of getting them out of the Wolves' camp. Instead, we get a pretty lighthearted story, with Laval thinking that Furtivo is Shadow Wind, and the Crocs humorously treating the wolves like servants, to the point where the wolves willingly let the Crocs go, and then celebrate about it the next day. Subverted somewhat though, as Cragger ends up having a dream where his parents warn him about Crooler.
* {{Cool Bike}}s: The Speedorz.
* {{Cool Sword}}s
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Happen during The beginning 'The Biggest Race Of All' during the creation of a strong golden chi
-->Ewald: Oh no!
-->Eagle2: What is it?
-->Ewald: I just finished my favorite book! (Both scream despite seemingly not realizing an earthquake happening.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Cragger and Crooler, with Worriz and the Wolves taking their place in episode 11. [[spoiler:Cragger pulls a HeelFaceTurn in 14 after Crooler runs out of Persuation Plants to control Cragger.]]
* DownerEnding: Episode 10 ends with almost every tribe turned against each other due to Furtivo (A fox hired to spread misgivings among the tribes by Crooler), and a large portion of Chi is now with the Wolves and Crocs. Not only that, but the wolf pact that Crominius made with the Wolves is disposed of, meaning that the Wolves no longer have any need to assist the Crocs, and Crooler has effectively betrayed her brother (Who managed to avoid an additional layer of MindControl during the ordeal). Also counts as a WhamEpisode.
** Episode 12 has most of the Crocs captured by the Wolves, subverted here though, as the fighting meant that the Wolves exhausted most of the Chi that they had stolen.
* DumbMuscle[=/=]BloodKnight: The Rhino tribe's main traits. They equate fighting to happiness.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Worriz acts like this towards Windra.
* EveryoneHasStandards: In "Attack on Eagle Spire", while Ripnik is indifferent to the fact that hundreds of Lion, Eagle, and Wolf lives will be lost if the Crocs succeed in pulling Eagle Spire down, Razar is against it because those lives are potential customers.
** In Episode 10, Crooler ends up feeling some remorse for causing the above DownerEnding, hesitating to get rid of the Wolf Pact and thinking about her actions, while the entire Wolf tribe is celebrating their victory, though in silence.
* EvilFormerFriend: Cragger to Laval.
* ExposedAnimalBellybutton: Again, Eris and Crooler.
* Fangirl: Eris was this to Dom De la loosh.
* FunnyAnimal: The citizens of Chima.
* FurryConfusion: Legend Beasts are animals that were not turned into humanoids by the chi water. Laval meets a lion Legend Beast in the pilot episode.
* FloatingContinent: Mount Cavora
* GaiasVengeance: If Chi isn't distributed properly, the land and weather get... unpleasant.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In "Market Day", Laval makes fun of Cragger by saying he has a small... tail.
** In "The Biggest Race Ever" When Eris is working on her Speedor, her entire waist area is white, ''implying that her armor only covers her front, and that her backside is completley naked.''
** In Episode 12, Eris comments on how she can't see anything, which lead Laval to exclaim "I can!" Considering how he was above and behind her...
* HookHand: Razar has this, as do some other Ravens.
* IronicEcho: Laval (While trying to get out of the Gorge of eternal depth) accidentally said the same words Cragger used on the day his own parents fell in.
* LadyMacbeth: Crooler definitely qualifies for this trope.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Crooler invokes this trope in episode 3 when she and her brainwashed brother try to provoke Laval in the hope that Laval would accidentally say (In front of a crowd of angry Crocs) that they would never get any chi. Unfortunately, she wasn't disappointed, and Laval throws the Crocs' chi down the Gorge of Eternal Depth, causing GaiasVengeance as stated above.
* NonhumanHumanoidHybrid: Reegull, a Mad scientist with an Eagle father and a Raven mother.
* MacGuffinGuardian: A rare heroic example as the lions guard the pool of chi that falls from mount Cavora, and unlike most MacGuffinGuardian are willing to share what there guarding.
* [[TheManBehindTheMan The Woman Behind the Man]]: Crooler to Cragger.
** [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* MeaningfulName: Crooler is definitely crueler than Cragger.
** Reegull's name rhymes with eagle, and his father was from the Eagle tribe.
* MerchandiseDriven
* MindControlDevice: Crooler's Persuader Plants on her brother. She grows them in a secret garden away from the Crocs, though as it turns out they can be eaten as snacks, though whomever eats them breathes the spores for a short amount of time. Episode 12 reveals that the spores are more like BloodKnight spores, as revealed when Cragger accidentally inhales some Crooler left behind, and that they merely make one more susceptible to violent acts and suggestions. Episode 14 then reveals that they have become very rare, with the plants that Crooler was growing were the last ones left.
* MixedAncestry: Reegull.
* MrFixit[=/=]{{Workaholic}}: The Beaver tribe's main traits. To the point that they issue vacations as punishment.
* PaperThinDisguise: The fake Shadow-Wind (Furtivo). With Eris pointing it out to Laval it can't be him due to too many obvious clues.
* PleaseKillMeIfItSatisfiesYou: Cragger to Laval, however, Laval did not follow this request and strikes a rock behind Cragger, displaying ActualPacifist traits.
* PowerGlows: Chi is this. Heck, when any citizen of chima plug in Chi, there body is encased in a blue or red BattleAura.
* PowerOfLove: Rogon will do anything to protect Eris (Especially since he thinks Eris has a crush on him.)
* PunnyName
* SideEffectsInclude: Fake chi may look green but it works just as good (Till it fades away and leaves you acting like a bird (Specifically a chicken.)
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Crocodiles, along with [[CrowsAndRavens ravens]] and [[BigBadassWolf wolves]], are the main antagonists.
** Subverted in numerous cases, Crominius kindly helped unify the wolf tribe, and was friends with Laval's father, Lagravis. Cragger is just BrainwashedAndCrazy and as of episode 11, seems to be getting over it and not wanting to fight the lions. In addition, Wanald of the Wolf tribe isn't really evil, he's just a young, innocent kid.
* SuperDrowningSkills: Laval. As Cragger puts it "You always were a lousy swimmer."
* SuperMode: Basically what Chi allows the characters to do.
* SwordFight: Happens a lot here.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Wanald is this to the Wolf tribe, in that he mainly eats fruit and doesn't seem very interested in attacking the other tribes. Even during the BadMoonRising event, he mainly just eats more fruit than normal, not really attacking anyone else.
* WasItReallyWorthIt: Crooler seems to be asking this of herself in episode 10, after betraying her own brother and her father's legacy to succeed in her goals.
* WhamEpisode: Episode 10, as stated above, is already a Wham Episode, but episode 11 takes the cake, as we end up seeing that episode 10's DownerEnding has ended the Speedor Races for good, and that the wolves are going on a rampage across Chima, taking almost all of the available Chi, leaving Chima in a state of imbalance represented by an increasing number of earthquakes, and we see that Crooler is being locked up for betraying Cragger, who has started to get over her mind control.
* WildCard: The Ravens will work for whoever pays them. Including working for two or more sides of a conflict simultaneously. They'll play all the tribes if it means more treasure for themselves.
