The story is told through comics (Published by Creator/DCComics for LEGO Club members and later widely distributed by Papercutz; these hit the high points of the story), a book series (that went in-depth), {{Web Serial|Novel}}s (side stories), and the occasional DirectToVideo movie (by Creative Capers Entertainment for the original trilogy, Threshold Animation for ''The Legend Reborn'', and Creator/WangFilmProductions[=/=]CGCG. With both Creator/MiramaxFilms and Creator/{{Universal}} as distributors). There are also a few beginning reader books, unimportant side stories designed to deliver AnAesop.

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: Mutran recounts how [[BloodKnight Icarax]] tried to rebel against [[BigBad Teridax]]:
-->'''Mutran''': "[Teridax] allowed Icarax to pound him for hours on end, until the rebelís energies were almost exhausted. Then Teridax exerted the smallest amount of his will and turned the [[GiantEnemyCrab Manas]] against Icarax. Once he was surrounded, Teridax used every power at his command to defeat... no, demolish... no, perhaps humiliate would be a better word... Icarax."
** Then he follows it up with a BreakingSpeech.

* NoHuggingNoKissing: [[{{Handwave}}Handwaved]] for Matoran, at least, by the fact that they're cyborgs with no need for romance in the human sense, as they cannot reproduce sexually. There was a Hewkii/Macku pairing and some Jaller/Hahli teasing in the flash animations of ''Chronicles'', as well as the films, though they didn't really have any significance as the storyline progressed. Note: this trope has not stopped [[{{Shipping}} shippers]] in the ''slightest''. (Does anything really?)
