* AdaptationalHeroism: ''Imaginators'' features a special VideoGame/CrashBandicoot themed level, Thumpin' Wumpa Island, and and it features the tribesmen from Papu Papu's tribe, who served as enemies in the first game. Here, they are portrayed as friendly, with a distinct SurferDude vibe to them.

* AscendedExtra: The Chompy Mage. Originally, he was simply the boss of the Wilikin Village in ''Giants'', but he proved popular enough with the fans that he returned in CaptainErsatz form as the Sheep Mage in ''Swap Force''. Then ''Trap Team'' reveals he's a core member of the [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doom Raiders]], one of the most dreaded gangs in all of Skylands, who all seem to regard Kaos as a [[LargeHam pompous]] [[SmallNameBigEgo amateur]] compared to them.

** In ''Imaginators'' several trappable villains from ''Trap Team'' are now Senseis and have been promoted to having their own figures.



* HijackedByGanon: Zig-Zagged in ''Swap Force''. Kaos's mom takes over as the BigBad after Kaos is seemingly defeated, and then Kaos takes over ''again'' after you beat ''her''. However, Kaos's mom praises him for putting himself over her like a true villain. Of course, there's never any ''doubt'' that Kaos will be the villain.
* HoldingOutForAHero: Subverted in ''Spyro's Adventure'', where instead of merely sitting around and letting the player save the day, the Mabu villagers from the first chapter go out and form their own militia to help fight Kaos' army. They actually help a surprising amount, locating several of the components of the Core of Light themselves (though actually retrieving it is, naturally, left to you).
