* ContinuityReboot: With the change in developer came various changes in canon, most notably the relationship Lara has with her parents. Lara herself also had a bit of a change in personality, appearing more human, down-to-earth and peppy than her previous iterations. Most key elements remained intact, however. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks The changes did cause some ire amongst part of the fanbase]], while others liked the new direction in which Lara was taken.

* {{Foreshadowing}} : The abandonned King Arthur Museum's shop contains a few sea serpent plushies, which seem rather out of place. [[spoiler: It turns out that King Arthur's real tomb is indeed guarded by a real giant sea serpent.]]

%%* MalevolentArchitecture

to:

%%* MalevolentArchitecture* MalevolentArchitecture: ''Legend '' both plays this straight and plays with it a little. In one particular tomb, Lara is somewhat disappointed to find that the death traps are not functioning. Even if activating them wasn't a requirement of passing the Broken Bridge puzzle that impeded progress through the level, one feels that she would have figured out how to get the traps running regardless. She even mentioned installing them in the Gym, which is full of equipment made just for practicing traversing small platforms and balance beams like those in temples, so it's only a matter of time before she installs a sawblade corridor in Croft Manor. Of course, it's hard to tell if she's actually serious or joking.

* PublicDomainArtifact: Excalibur and the rest of the Arthurian myth is the backdrop for the story. Only the sword is MUCH older than Arthur and several other ancient cultures and actually serves as a key to open a portal to Avalon.

* [[DistressedDude Distressed Dudes]]: During the level set in England. The boys, staying in their truck while Lara's investigating a tacky King Arthur museum, are ambushed by Rutland's mercenaries, prompting Lara to quickly make her way out of the tomb she'd been exploring and take out the mercenaries like the {{Badass}} she is.

* MythologyGag: Crystal Dynamics hired Toby Gard, who was the main creator of [=TR1=], to help them with their first Tomb Raider and especially image of Lara herself. Cue new Lara being AmbiguouslyBrown, causing [[FanDumb a minor outrage]]. This comes back to the times when the [[VideoGame/TombRaider first game]] was still on concept stage. Back then, Lara was SpicyLatina named Laura Cruz.

--> '''Alister:''' Ack! Are you sure those bullets won't bounce off that thing and put an end to my short and promising life?
--> '''Lara:''' Hollow points, Alister. They practically drop straight to the floor. I did promise no repeats of that earlier incident, didn't I?
