** Creator/NamcoBandai's Japan-only ''Franchise/KamenRider [=SummonRide=]'', allowing players to use figurines of Kamen Riders from 2000's ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'' to 2014's ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' as playable characters and Ride Chips (similar to ''Infinity''[='=]s Power Discs) for form changes and NPC ally summoning. Unlike the above two and like ''Skylanders'' itself, it has an explicit focus on dungeon crawling.

** Starcast will, upon clearing a group of enemies, sometimes proclaim, [[Literature/TheRaven "Darkness there... and nothing more."]] He also can purchase an upgrade that allows his doppelgangers to pull enemies towards them named [[Franchise/MortalKombat "Get over here!"]]

** It's even invoked as a gameplay mechanic for the titular Imaginators. Leveling up gives them access to gear that very rapidly becomes astonishingly powerful, and their level cap is set by the number of Senseis you have in your collection. See AbsurdlyHighLevelCap above for just how high that can number can climb.

** ''Imaginators'' features Imaginite, the material which forms the basis of the Mind Magic that [[{{Precursors}} The Ancients]] used to create Skylands. And which, more critically, both Kaos and they Skylanders are using to create customized soldiers, the titular Imaginators.

** Flynn is remarkably similar to the Balloonists from VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon1998, right down to his uniform, service provided and initial choice of transportation.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Happens twice in ''Imaginators''. First, in the Golden Arcade, Sal grimly observes that Plushie Plaza used be called the Losers Pit, but had to be changed because "...we gotta be PC now."
** Later, Buzz conducts a commando raid to acquire some Cap'n Cluck's fried chicken, admitting that the brand isn't very PC, but he still loves it. [[ScrewPolitenessImASenior And he's old, so he's allowed to ignore that sort of thing.]]

** While retaking the Sky Fortress in ''Imaginators'', Jet-Vac discovers that his lunch has disappeared from the fridge. [[spoiler: Kaos reveals he was the thief while taunting Jet-Vac during the final level.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PowerCreep: ''Imaginators'' introduces a pretty bad case of this, as it's the first game where stats actually increase as you level up, but this fact only applies to Imaginators and Senseis, who already have impressive stats to begin with. Add onto that the fact that hats can no longer be equipped on anyone but Imaginators, who themselves have access to multiple types of gear that give stacking bonuses on the order of several times what a hat ever could, and Core Skylanders simply end up feeling uselessly weak.
