* NarmCharm: It's a little hard to take the plot twists seriously when the characters are still cute-as-a-button minifigures. This doesn't take away from awesome moments however, and the characters usually act normal instead of acting like they live in some toy chest.

* SeasonalRot: Seasons 1-3 are generally considered to be the best among fans, especially those who have grown disenchanted with the show. The later seasons, while still enjoyable, tend to have more plot holes, and characterisation is noticeably less in-depth and consistent.

** Lord Garmadon having [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes]] ''in human form!''and paler yellow skin when he was younger. This comes off as unnerving in comparison since the other characters have standard LEGO faces.

* BrokenBase:
** Over [[spoiler: Lloyd]] being the Green Ninja. Many were expecting Kai or Zane to be the one awarded the title.
** Also over the increased amount of sci-fi elements in the series, particularly the Ninja getting their vehicles in ''Snakebit'' and Zane turning out to be a Nindroid in ''Tick Tock''. Say, a BrokenBase in a LEGO series featuring heroes with ElementalPowers because it's getting too sci-fi? Where have we seen that [[Toys/{{BIONICLE}} before]]...?
** The Serpentine getting [[spoiler:locked back underground by the Stone Army]] has resulted in this for some fans, especially due to their EnsembleDarkhorse status. This was later resolved with Season 3 [[spoiler:showing them having adapted to life underground]].
** There is much drama over the news that Lloyd's voice actor will be replaced and that the character himself will have a girlfriend in season 8. Some are supportive of these changes, while others... not so much.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Lloyd wasn't very well-liked in the first half of season one, being an annoying [[TooDumbToLive idiotic]] brat as a villain and TheLoad as a hero. Having TookALevelInBadass and generally becoming a more responsible character in later episodes may have changed that.
* TheScrappy: Grand Sensei Darreth for being TheLoad. He was always creating problems that the ninjas had to solve, such as getting kidnapped by pirates in a TooDumbToLive move, and failing to pay his rent so the ninjas have to enter a racing competition just to pay it off for him.
** Misako isn't very well-liked among the fandom because [[DieForOurShip many believe that her relationship with Wu is poorly written and preferred her to be with Garmadon]]. Some also see her as a bad mother to Lloyd since she had abandoned him at Darkley's Boarding School for Bad Boys.

** Subverted with Lloyd himself. While he eventually does go through with it, his initial reaction to the plan is that of denial. It's later shown in season five that [[spoiler:he still misses his father, and hesitates in destroying the Realm Crystal when Morro reveals that doing so would lead to his father's death. When Lloyd reunites with his father in the belly of the Preeminent, the latter comforts him and gives him motivation to return to the fight. This finally allows Lloyd peace of mind knowing that his father will be in a better place.]] In "Day of the Departed", he and Misako light up a lantern together to honour him and remember his passing.
