* StillbornFranchise: Subverted. The first ''LEGO Island'' game was intended to be the first part in a six game series, with other games exploring the other islands and areas in the Phanta Sea. However, these were all scrapped before development got far due to LEGO's [[ExecutiveMeddling firing of the development team a day before the first game's release]]. While of course a second game ''was'' eventually made, it wasn't ''quite'' the franchise that was originally intended to spawn out of it.

* TheOtherDarrin: Across the three games of the series, not a single character retains his or her voice actor from one game to the next. It's particularly jarring for fans of the first game, since that game had trained professional voice actors including Creator/JuneForay and David L. Lander... and they were all replaced by very generic and unprofessional voices for the sequels. ''Island Xtreme Stunts'' didn't even bother with casting voice actors who sounded anything like the original cast.
