* GoKartingWithBowser: Or rather, [[LEGOCastle Basil the Batlord, Willa the Witch]], [[LEGOAdventurers Baron von Barron]]/[[DubNameChange Mr. Hates]], [[LEGOSpace Alpha Dragonis]], and [[LEGOAdventurers Sam Sinister]]/[[DubNameChange Slyboots]] in the first game. [[LEGOPirates Captain Redbeard and Governor Broadside]] also seem willing to put their differences behind them in Circuit 1.
** In the sequel, Go Karting With [[LEGOAdventurers Mr. Cunningham and Sam Sanister]].
* GratuitousGerman: [[LEGOAdventurers Baron von Barron]] uses the German conjunction "und" instead of "and" in the first game.

* NoNameGiven: [[LEGOCastle King Richard]] is only identified as the "Royal King" and [[LEGOPirates Cannonball Cordoba/Don Diego de LEGO/Sergeant Speedy]] is only called "The Admiral" in ''LEGO Racers''. The Islander and Black Knight are also left unnamed, though to be fair, they had no names in the original lines.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: On the results screen and in his intro cutscene, [[LEGOCastle Basil the Bat Lord's]] name is written as "Basil the Batlord" (though, oddly enough, it is written "Bat Lord" on the main menu). Similarly, [[LEGOPirates Black Jack Hawkins]] has his name written as "Blackjack Hawkins". [[LEGOSpace Alpha Draconis]] has his name spelled "Alpha Dragonis".
** In ''LEGO Racers 2'', [[LEGOAdventurers Sam and Alexia Sinister's]] last name is spelled "Sanister". Surprisingly, [[LEGOLifeOnMars Riegel]] [[AvertedTrope averts]] this trope, despite usually falling victim to it.

A MascotRacer similar to the ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' series, you can use weapons to help you. In this case you collect colored blocks for different types of power-ups, and collect white blocks to upgrade power-ups. Red are projectiles-like weapons, yellow are traps, blue blocks are defensive shields, and green blocks are speed boosts. To the point that these exact type of pickups are ripped straight out of DiddyKongRacing.

* FollowTheLeader: The first ''LEGO Racers'' game is quite similar to DiddyKongRacing's gameplay engine, and even the power-ups. But besides that, it's unique with courses, characters, and a build option.

* DummiedOut: The Knightmare-Athon and Pirate Skull Pass short-cuts were removed completely, but there are still power-ups intact from where they used to be.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Adventure Temple Trail is a pretty obvious ''Indiana Jones'' knockoff, since the golden idol and a lightning-shooting chest a la the Ark of the Covenant from ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' are present.

Added DiffLines:

* AWinnerIsYou: The GBC version of the first game ends with nothing more than a text box of Rocket Racer saying the exact same thing as he does on the console/PC versions, just without mentioning you winning his car set (the GBC version lacks unlockable car sets). Basically, nothing more than "Congratulations, I knew you had it in you! You are the greatest LEGO racing champion of all time!"

** Basil the Bat Lord uses them all dangerously well, but appears to ever so slightly prefer green bricks.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerupLetdown: Yellow + one white in the first game is...arguably worse than yellow with no white. Yellow with no white lays down an oil slick that causes the player who comes in contact with it to spin out; it stays for a fairly long period of time, so if you're a little ahead, there's still a chance that a player could run into it. A yellow and a white throws a stick of dynamite behind you that does the same as most projectiles, sending the player flying upward and slowing them down. The problem is that it works more like a backwards projectile rather than a trap, meaning that if there's nobody immediately behind you, it's a complete waste.

* DubNameChange: This happens in ''LEGO Racers'' due to the [[IHaveManyNames confusing naming issue]] of two LEGOAdventurers villains. In the American translation, the boss of Circuit 5 is named Baron von Barron, and one of the racers in Circuits 3 and 6 is named Sam Sinister. In the European translation, the boss of Circuit 5 is named Mr. Hates, and the racer in Circuits 3 and 6 is named Slyboots.
