* ContinuityLockout: In the earlier games, the cutscenes are only occasional, usually [[HeroicMime pantomimed]], and PlayedForLaughs. So good luck understanding what's going on without watching the movies first. For an example of how these games look to someone unfamiliar with the source material: ''[[http://www.mytgn.co.uk/forum/content.php?67-Lego-Harry-Potter-as-Explained-by-Somone-Who-Has-Never-Read-Harry-Potter-Introduction LEGO Harry Potter as Explained by Someone Who Has Never Read Harry Potter]]''. Avoided in later games, which have intelligible dialogue.

** ''The LEGO Movie Video Game'' is an exception, since ''everything'' is made out of LEGO bricks. Most games have a bonus level of some sort that's built the same way. The patches are a bit less conspicuous in these instances.

* AdaptedOut: ''The Lego Movie'' completely omits several of the licensed characters that make appearances in the film itself, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Milhouse]], [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Michelangelo]] and [[Film/HarryPotter Dumbledore]]. Furthermore, [[spoiler:the cameo by Millennium Falcon and its crew]] is omitted despite iots relevance to the plot, and one of the major plot points is completely glossed over - [[spoiler:TheReveal that the entire story is really just a boy playing with his Lego is kept, but the subsequent reveal that Lord Business and his plot to freeze everything is based on his father's desire to stop his son from messing up his Lego kits is cut out of the story, removing all context for Lord Business' HeelFaceTurn]].

**A rather hilarious example is Batman (of all people) in the LEGO movie video game. Unlike the movie itself (and his brief appearance in LEGO Dimensions), this Batman is as capable in gameplay as his counterpart from the LEGO Batman games.

The games are rife with numerous {{shout out}}s, much as you'd expect from a franchise affectionately parodying popular films, to the point where they have [[ShoutOut/LEGOAdaptationGame their own Shout Out page]].

* LEGO ''[[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Marvel's Avengers]]'' (unrelated to the previous Marvel game; featuring ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' and including other movies from Phase Two of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse)

* AdvertisedExtra: The Winter Soldier, Lady Thor and Kamala Khan are all featured on the back of ''Avengers'', despite that fact that the Winter Soldier only appears in one optional mission, Kamala in two sidequests, and Lady Thor is just a playable character with no storyline focus.



* AsHimself: Stan Lee in ''Avengers''. [[Series/TheIncredibleHulk Lou Ferrigno]] is also an unlockable character.
* AscendedMeme:
** In ''Marvel's Avengers'', the final mission to [[spoiler:unlock Lou Ferrigno?]] Fighting a bear.
** Third trailer for ''Age of Ultron'' spawned jokes about Hulk looking like he's talking a selfie in the scene where the team is all lunging towards HYDRA in slow motion. Cue the game having an entire string of "Hulk selfie" side quests.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: The Other prepares to send several runaway Chitauri back to Thanos for a FateWorseThanDeath, only to be distracted by the sound of an ice cream truck.



* CreatorCameo: ''Marvel's Avengers'' has the obligatory Creator/StanLee appearance.
* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Avengers'' compared to ''Marvel Superheroes,'' being based directly off the movies and all. It shows in ways both obvious and subtle. Compare, for example, Maria Hill's mission briefings from one game to the other, or the more RealIsBrown look of New York in ''Avengers'' vs. the bright and cheerful New York of ''Marvel Superheroes.''



* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: A mission in ''Avengers'' has Armin Zola proclaiming how the player's every action will lead to their doom. Comfortable, air-conditioned doom, but DOOM nonetheless.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Once the player finishes a mission that requires foiling Armin Zola's latest plan, he tells them to get the "hail Hydra" out.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In ''Avengers'', certain characters can be unlocked by getting into fights with them. The fights don't come with any explanation, they're just there.



* JokeCharacter
** ''LEGO Marvel Avengers'' has Egghead, who has no real abilities other than throwing eggs.
** ''LEGO Marvel Avengers'' has Butterball, who is physically invulnerable, but his attacks are all him tumbling over himself and he runs in a awkward waddle.
** ''LEGO Marvel Avengers'' has the Mk 1 Iron Man suit, which moves slowly and can't fly.
* KneelBeforeZod: During his boss fight in Free Play Mode, Loki swears the player characters will kneel before him when the day is through.
* LandmarkingTheHiddenBase: In ''Avengers'', a Hydra base can be found under the Lincoln Monument.
* LethalJokeCharacter: In Lego Avengers, Squirrel Girl [[spoiler:has a set of hulkbuster armor]].



* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: A mission in ''Avengers'' involves helping Kamala Khan fight off several crocodiles with FrickinLaserBeams attached to their heads.



** ''Avengers'' wasn't timed with any releases, but had DLC for ''Ant-Man'' and ''Captain America: Civil War''.



* QuoteMine: All of the voicework in ''Marvel's Avengers'' cutscenes is clipped straight from the movies. Many lines are used in the same context as the films -- but some are put into new contexts for comedic purposes.



* RegeneratingHealth: In ''Avengers'', characters like Ultron and The Vision have it.



* SparedByTheAdaptation: A bit of an odd version with Agent Coulson in Lego Avengers. He still "dies" like he did in the original movie, but we see him open his eyes and wink at the camera while Captain America's back is turned, foreshadowing his appearance in Series/AgentsOfSHIELD.

* TheUnintelligible / SpeakingSimlish: The earliest games used a small voice cast speaking Simlish in the cutscenes, and relied on the players to have seen the movies and know how the story goes already. Later games used dialogue samples from the movie being adapted, a voice actors performing new dialogue, or a combination.




[[folder:U]]
* TheUnintelligible / SpeakingSimlish: In the movie adaptation games, where the players can be expected to know how the story goes already, everyone speaks Simlish. (Though samples from the movies, such as Han's "Yahoo!" from ''A New Hope'', are occasionally used at appropriate moments.) The DC and Marvel adaptations, which have original plots, have intelligible characters.
** ''LEGO Lord of the Rings'' and ''LEGO The Hobbit'' avert this by using actual dialogue from their respective movies.
