** Arguably hypocritical, considering how LAU are the only games in the series with an actual bikini outfit for lara.

** At one point developer Creator/TravellersTales pitched a Lego-themed game based of the franchise to Creator/EidosInteractive but due to a copyright dispute with Creator/LucasArts (complicated stuff), as well as the franchise not lucrative enough to warrant a lego game, the idea was scrapped.

It would have made no scence age range and demographic wise anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: One of the most notorious. Straight from the first game, fans spread a rumor that there was a code that could make Lara naked. Uh, no. [[RuleThirtyFour As much as fans might depict her]], not in the actual game.
** Although it started out as a rumor, it's been defictionalized with several patches. These patches go from the very first game, to the 1st reboot and even the 2nd reboot. Yeah...

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb97-APu_-k In the first game's early beta FMV]] the story would have been slightly different. The scene seems to be after Greece where Lara found the second piece of the Scion, but when she combines two pieces a {{Hologram}} shows Moai head from Easter Island instead of Egyptian temple, implying the location of the third and final piece. Also, a journal on a boat shows the name of "Arther Hamilton Graves", who was originally intended to be the antagonist before Jacqueline Natla.
** Lara Croft was originally envisioned as a SpicyLatina character named "Laura Cruz". It was decided to make her British in order to appeal to the home market more.
** Before things started to formalize with legal assistance, in the early days of the franchise, there was a project for a comics series by [[FrancoBelgianComics Glénat]], green-lighted by Eidos. Dark Eons managed to only release a single issue before it was quickly cancelled and removed from the market, as other branches of Eidos finalized their deal with [=TopCow=]. The single issue has a considerably different tone, themes and atmosphere.
** Lara was originally supposed to die for real at the end of ''The Last Revelation'' - Core Design wanted to kill her off as they were [[CreatorBacklash fed up with having to make a new game every year]]. [[ExecutiveMeddling Eidos Interactive had other ideas]].

* TrollingCreator: A promo video for the third game ended with one of the developers, seated at his workstation, responding to a burning fan question: What does Lara look like without her clothes on? He turned to his computer, which had Lara's in-game model open in a modeling program, and after a drawn-out moment of anticipation, he.... turned the texturing off, reducing her to a wireframe.
