* ToughActToFollow: Regardless of what you think of the second or third games, it's pretty clear that they suffer pretty greatly from this trope. The first game was such a new and innovative kids' game that had never been done before, not to mention how full of life and creativity it was, where the second and third stuck to more mainstream tried-and-true game design mechanics. The first game is often considered a landmark in Lego's history, where the second and third tend to get glossed over as a result.

Added DiffLines:

** During the racing minigame, every time you shoot an attacking snake: "I GOT ONE!"


Added DiffLines:

** Rob, the resident prankster on the island. His voice is ''incredibly'' deep and nasal, and sounds both unnerving and unnatural.


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: The redheaded girl who appears out of nowhere to kiss Pepper at the end of the second game. She never appears anywhere else in-game, but seems to have a similar fashion sense as him which has led some to joke that she could be his sister.
-->'''WebVideo/Brutalmoose:''' Oh look, that must be Pepper's terrifying sister! [...] Well if you're gonna be stuck on an island with only a few people, incest is bound to happen sooner or later, am I right?

* HellIsThatNoise: The loud rhythmic whistling in the first game when you're looking for the last four helicopter pieces the Brickster hides. It doesn't help that it accompanies some very eerie music.

** Most of Pepper's dialogue may qualify, having taken the TotallyRadical gig UpToEleven.

* VindicatedByHistory: ''Island Xtreme Stunts'' was highly overlooked when it first came out due to little marketing from LEGO, and even now it's still the least-known game in the series. As more longtime fans learned of its existence though, it started to become slightly more popular, and is now usually considered a much more worthy sequel than the second game.

* WhatAnIdiot: All of the games are rife with this, to near ludicrous amounts.
** Across all the games, the Brickster is the island's worst criminal who is one of the only major threats to the citizens. He's known to be untrustworthy and quite dangerous.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That he'd be exiled to a place with maximum security and surveillance, since everyone knows that he can and will cause major damage if he is let free.\\
'''Instead:''' He's put in a tiny prison cell that can easily be escaped, and '''right next to the helicopter!''' Is it any wonder that he manages to cause so much damage every time he's let loose?
** Also, across all the games, the Brickster continually manages to make an escape.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That people would look to the police first for help on taking care of it. After all, it's their job to deal with this.\\
'''Instead:''' Everyone turns their first eye to Pepper, a ''pizza delivery boy'' who hasn't reached adulthood!\\
'''Compounding It:''' The police do ''[[PoliceAreUseless next to nothing]]'' in any of the games to help fix the situation. In the first they do a few things, like collecting evidence and examining it, and are the ones to ultimately catch the Brickster, but in the other two they have incredibly small roles and leave Pepper to do every last ounce of work. How do they have their jobs again?
** In the second game, there's a book called the Constructopedia that holds the entire island together. When a page is torn out, a building falls apart.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That an ArtifactOfDoom of such power would be locked away for nobody to be able to steal. Even if there's only one criminal on the island, it's still an incredibly dangerous item with an incredible amount of destructive potential, and there's no telling who else on the island may end up willingly taking it with malicious intent.\\
'''Instead:''' The Infomaniac leaves it ''sitting on his desk'' and ''out in the open'' for literally anyone to take. Needless to say, the Brickster has absolutely no trouble taking it from his hands.

* NarmCharm: From ''Xtreme Stunts'', the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKMqK5-vmCE Minty Fresh]]. The lyrics are unbelievably cheesy, but the music itself is really awesome.


Added DiffLines:

** Unlike the first two games, ''Xtreme Stunts'' gives Pepper black, beady eyes rather than white cartoon eyes. Though more accurate to most Minifigures, it still looks unnerving.

* SoBadItsGood: A scene in the PS1 version of ''LEGO Island 2'' got hit with technical limits very hard when it came to recreating it. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbf8Bnw5GFs The end result is rather hilarious.]]

* FranchiseOriginalSin: People who complain that the gameplay of ''LEGO Island 2'' is just walking through an overworld from one minigame to the next fail to remember that ''LEGO Island'' was literally just an overworld with three "building" minigames and five "obstacle course" minigames. Granted, the overworld of ''LEGO Island'' is much more alive than that of ''LEGO Island 2'', but there isn't much to do in ''LEGO Island'' besides the minigames, which is a common criticism aimed at ''LEGO Island 2'' instead. For that matter, at least the ''LEGO Island 2'' minigames are more varied than those of ''LEGO Island''.
