Trivia: LEGO Adaptation Game
  • Actor Allusion:
    • In Star Wars: The Complete Saga and Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, Harrison Ford's respective characters from each game appear as a Guest Fighter in the other.
    • The German pilot who fights Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark is played by the same guy who plays the guy who operates the gong in Temple of Doom (the late Pat Roach). In the LEGO version, the German pilot is the guy who operates the gong.
    • In LEGO Indy 2, the title character is distracted while driving through the warehouse by the sight of you-know-who frozen in carbonite.
    • The "Shoot First" achievement for killing Greedo can be done with either Han or Indy.
    • Agent Smith behind Elrond anyone?
    • The Achievement for beating Palpatine with Mace Windu is Did I Break Your Concentration?
    • Marvel Super Heroes includes a trophy called "Don't I Know You?" for playing as Captain America and Human Torch in co-op.
    • In Marvel Super Heroes:
    • Also, at one point Fury is shown eating a cheeseburger during a meeting with his superiors. No doubt it's a tasty Royale with cheese...
    • Upon completing one of the bonus levels, Fury also says an altered version of the Ezekiel 25:17 speech from Pulp Fiction.
    • In The Hobbit, if the Boss Disguises red brick is switched on, Smaug wears a deerstalker.
  • Awesome, Dear Boy: Aside from So My Kids Can Watch, Stephen Amell confirmed that this is one reason he returned to voice Green Arrow.
  • Casting Gag:
    • Roger Craig Smith reprises his role of Captain America, but also voices Human Torch. Both are played by Chris Evans in their respective films franchises. Pairing them together gets you the achievement of "Don't I Know You?"
    • Clancy Brown, well known for voicing Lex Luthor, reprises the role in LEGO Batman 2 and 3.
    • Laura Bailey as Black Widow. She had the same role in the Avengers Assemble! cartoon.
    • The majority of the voice actors in Batman 3 have had a history voicing those characters, like Gilbert Gottfried as Mxyzptlk or Tara Strong as Harley Quinn. Several voice actors from the Arkham games reprise their roles as some of the Bat-rogues.
  • Fandom Nod: In the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" hub in Lego Indiana Jones 2, we see a pig being roasted. It's not the official LEGO pig, but rather one made by BrickForge.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Now with it's own page.
  • I Knew It: After Stephen Amell let slip that he was doing more voice work for a DC game, many people guessed he'd be in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. They were right.
  • The Other Darrin:
  • Playing Against Type:
  • Recycled Script: LEGO Marvel seems to take a lot from the first season of The Super Hero Squad Show: a cosmic object has broken and been scattered, so the heroes, based in the Helicarrier, must collect the pieces before Doctor Doom and his army of villains, all ending in Galactus attacking Earth and the two sides forming an Enemy Mine to stop him.
  • So My Kids Can Watch: In this interview, Stephen Amell admitted that one of the main reasons for his reprising Green Arrow was so his young daughter could see something that he was in. Awesome, Dear Boy factored into it too.
  • Trolling Creator: Due to fan demand for Raven for Beyond Gotham, the official Twitter account started teasing fans about it. Firstly, they jokingly asked if she was even that popular, then pretended to confuse her for Raven-Symoné by tweeting "#RevealRavenSymone". Finally they agreed to reveal Ra...'s Al Ghul.
  • What Could Have Been
    • Some files for the original LEGO Star Wars game shows that Zam Wessel was planned to be in the game, as well as a wheelbike chase with Grievous. They brought Zam back for The Complete Saga, but never used the wheelbike chase, presumably due to already having a driving segment.
    • Similarly, a level where you played as Anakin against the droid battleship in a Naboo Starfighter was planned for the first game (with a piece of the post-level cinematic shown in trailers) but was scrapped, most likely because Episode 1 already had the podracing level. It was included as a bonus level in The Complete Saga, redesigned to be more like that game's vehicle levels.
    • Demos for LEGO Marvel Superheroes showed that the Green Goblin could turn into his Ultimate incarnation. They are instead separate characters in the actual game.
      • Also, Lady Deathstrike was originally going to be in the game, but was cut.
      • The box art and the mini comic for stage five suggests that Tony was originally meant to upgrade to the Mk. 7. Instead he goes to Mk. 42
      • In one interview, the designers said they had considered giving Captain America a gun, but they decided it would be too difficult to add with his other abilities.
    • According to Brickipedia, the Lord of Apokolips himself, Darkseid, has character data that can be found by digging through the game files in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Nora Fries, the cryogenically frozen wife of Mr. Freeze, was also planned, but possibly scrapped due to lack of importance and canonically not making sense as a playable character.
