** 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 5 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.

** There was 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.



* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: A lot of the music is incredible (listen to some of it [[http://jayvincentmusic.com/hear.html here]]), but some music stands out in particular.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Lloyd wasn't very well-liked in the first half of season two, 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* VillainDecay: Lord Garmadon, starting in the second season. In the first season, his personal greed caused him to betray his father and turn him against his brother Wu, and even in death, he became an evil mastermind who overthrew the lord of the underworld and spent years [[XanatosGambit plotting and playing everyone involved]] to escape the underworld and have his revenge. In the second season, he is recast as a TragicVillain who did not choose to be evil but was forcibly turned evil by the venom of the Great Devourer. When he isn't lamenting how BeingEvilSucks, he acts as a goofy CardCarryingVillain who brushes his teeth with knives, laughs at sad movies, and literally eats evil, a far cry from the KnightOfCerebus he was in the first season. It's odd to see Lord Garmadon change from the dark and sinister plotter from the shadows in season one to crying and whining and accusing the ninjas of cheating in a racing competition. This was likely intentional, seeing as it set into motion his redemption arc.

** Lloyd is also a woobie. He was tricked and kidnapped by Pythor as a misguided kid, and then thrown into his prophecy of defeating his father and devoting most of his life to training. His entire childhood was then literally taken away from him in a single night. [[spoiler: He also had to watch his father banish himself into the Cursed Realm, and was unable to save him when they met for the last time. And thanks to Morro, he was a victim of DemonicPossession.]] Seriously, the universe seems to have it out for him.
** IronWoobie: While it may have started as early as season 2, Lord Garmadon falls firmly into this trope in the second half of season 4. [[spoiler:From being painfully transformed against his will (once again!) into an Anacondrai to Chen taunting him about his past deception in front of Wu and Misako to having to make a HeroicSacrifice, the last three episodes are basically a TraumaCongaLine for Garmadon.]]

** The theme song, 'The Weekend Whip' deserves a special mention. Done by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fold The Fold]], it's stylistically mid-late 2000s PopPunk at its best, mixing the sounds of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_the_Kings We The Kings]]' song 'Check Yes Juliet' and Music/AllTimeLow's 'Dear Maria, Count Me In' and is catchy as all hell.
