* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman/[[spoiler: ImAHumanitarian]]: Two of the villain quests in ''Trap Team'' involve a chef asking you to bring them a specific villain to use as an ''ingredient''. Both of them are "cutscene" quests, so you don't even hear a reaction from the villain. One of the two villains is ''[[spoiler: Kaos]]''.

** The crew quarters in the Chef Zeppelin seems to be the only place your behavior is even ''remarked'' on.

* SlippySlideyIceWorld: The Empire of Ice adventure pack has ... a ''lot'' of ice to slip and slide on. ''Giants'' features the Frozen Wasteland, which also has slippery ice, though not quite as much. Skylanders with flying abilities can also fly themselves across the ice without having to slip and slide across it (though their flight abilities are a bit slippery anyway).

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: ''Swap Force'' for the Wii version. ''Swap Force'' adds the ability jump but it's put on the A button. In the previous two games the A button was the primary attack, the primary attack is now the B button and secondary attack moved to the C button. All of it could have been avoided by making the C button the jump. To make it worse none of the attacks can even be re-mapped.
