** Attempting to play the Versus levels from the story by yourself will have some extra results. For example, playing Chick Flick by yourself will have Avalon tell you that "competition is no fun when there's no opponent to crush" and playing Rocket Funland by yourself will change the song that plays from the intense [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ-MBYa4csc Automaton]] to the super chill, elevator music-esque [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqiHHgvAJ9g Elevate This]].

* AdvancingBossOfDoom: There's one in many of the games, and almost all of them fit into the "run away until you win" type.
** [=LBP1=]'s Skulldozer, piloted by Frida, rampages through the Wedding until you cross a bridge that promptly explodes afterwards, stopping the destruction and bringing her back to her senses.
** LBP PSP's Dragon from the Orient. Unusually for the series, it's of the "fight and run at the same time" type, and you're in a rickshaw so you don't have to worry about the running.
** [=LBP2=]'s Copernicus the Guard Turkey, who guards the Factory of a Better Tomorrow ([[AIIsACrapshoot or used to, anyway]]). He chases Sackboy, Clive, and the Sackbot army until he falls through the floor... and then comes back while on fire and chases them some more before being done in for good by Clive.
** [=LBPV=]'s Coaster Valley is guarded by a trash compactor. When Sackboy and Otis attempt to collect some scrap to build the double-barreled cannon, the compactor goes after them and a chase ensues.
** [=LBP3=]'s chain link monster, created by Newton after Sackboy, [=OddSock=], and Toggle confront him in the Ziggurat. This time, however, you're playing as Toggle and have to change size to progress and get prizes.
