* DesignatedVillain: Turaga Dume and the Vahki get struck with this in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=540_iF8Iz58 Vahki animations]]. The shorts all portray Dume's rule over Metru Nui as some kind of Orwellian oppressive government with the Vahki serving as brutal secret police. The main source material instead shows Dume as a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold well-intentioned but stubborn ruler]]. Similarly, the Vahki are mindless robotic law enforcers who haven't really independently done anything that villainous in the main storyline.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The "Skull Spider" villains from the reboot. An army of spiders that can attach themselves to anyone's face and take over their mind, similar to 2002's Krana, would be a very interesting adversary... If there were more than six Toa, six very same-ish looking Protectors, and an off-screen selection of meek villagers to infect. Set names for later 2015 seem to indicate that there will be several villains connected to them, though.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: What would you expect from a Legoland California ride bearing the BIONICLE name? An epic romp through a recreation of environments from the stories? Well, you'll have to settle for BIONICLE Blaster, which is essentially a spinning teacup ride with a mechanical appearance and some Toa Nuva statues.

** The Ignika was sentient before helping to awaken Mata Nui. Afterwards, its personality became dormant so that the focus can be on Mata Nui wandering around Bara Magna. Because [[SarcasmMode it obviously wouldn't be the least bit interesting]] to see Mata Nui and the Ignika interact and figure out their origins together. Also, the fact that Mata Nui's body was made of sand thus possibly impervious to injury is never addressed or explored.

** Vezon.



* PanderingToTheBase: Just the sheer amount of AscendedFanon cases made by the author is enough to get on a significant amount of people's nerves.

** If Vezon isn't the EnsembleDarkhorse, then he's TheScrappy for being a useless annoying dimension-hopping CreatorsPet who never shuts up.
*** He's certainly this in-universe. The common reaction to him saying something, or seeing him, is to either attack him, tell him to shut up, or try to kill him. He even Lampshades this.

On one hand, this does suit his introduced role as a Glatorian recruiter very well. [[spoiler:On the other hand, less his role as the BigBad.]]

* BaseBreaker: Ask around, and you'll find that Vezon is either the best EnsembleDarkhorse or the worst [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] in the series.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: ''BIONICLE: The Game'' and ''BIONICLE Heroes'' suffer from this, the latter going all the way to TheyJustDidntCare considering there's three bosses that are canonically dead and one that's actually supposed to be good. Then again, the developers of ''Heroes''' say their case was deliberate, believing that by going past the limits of canon, they can make a more fun game.

* ShipTease: Watch ''Mask ShipTease:
** Jaller and Hahli have plenty of moments before ''and'' after the ban on romance.
*** At the end of the Bohrok animations, Hahli comes up to Jaller and puts a flower on his Kanohi, prompting him to stay at Ga-Koro to hang out with her instead of leaving for Ta-Koro.

of Light'' and tell me you didn't see it with Jaller and Hahli:movie.



** "Tease", good sir? ''Tease?!'' Whenever they were onscreen in ''Mask of Light'' they were constantly trading flirts and compliments, and [[spoiler:Hahli keeps Jaller's mask as a memento after he dies and makes a RousingSpeech about his bravery to moralize the Toa and Turaga]]. And this was in the early years before the ban on romance, so if this wasn't shipping I don't know what is.

*** In ''Mata Nui Online Game II', if Hahli talks to Kylma
in Ko-Koro, he offers to tell her her future, which will have happiness and pain in it. The happiness is that she will relight the early years before darkness within Mata Nui; and the ban on romance, so if this wasn't shipping I don't know what is.pain? "The one you love will be destroyed".
*** In the Legends Novels, there are occasions where Jaller is the one catching Hahli whenever she's in danger, it's even how he first discovered his mask power!
