The outcry was so great, the developers actually scrapped their redesign and went with the classic appearance instead.

** Some fans have trouble accepting that Paradox is a case of DarkIsNotEvil and will insist that Paradox is evil. [[SarcasmMode Yeah, because LEGO would definitely promote playing as the villain in a game where you're battling the forces of evil.]]
** Now that ''LEGO Universe'' is closed, a number of fans just won't stop believing that it will reopen one day, despite constant confirmation from WordOfGod that it will never happen.

* GoddamnedBoss: The Crux Prime bosses, sans Roo Morgg, Nuckal, and [[ThatOneBoss Butterscorch]]. Most of them are fairly easy to fight, especially with a team of four players. However, since they spawn randomly and infrequently, good luck finding them. And if you do find them, hope you or your team can get to them before someone else does, or you won't get credit for the kill. And, [[FlunkyBoss since they usually spawn amongst many of their fellow Stromlings]], it can be frustrating to have nearly defeated one of them only to get killed by some Maelstrom Horseman shooting at you.

When Baron Typhonus spawns the spider, Dr. Overbuild's cute little Robot Dog pet barks at it... [[KickTheDog and the Spider Boss immediately crushes it beneath one of its feet]]. It begins to attack the other three explorers as Baron Typhonus [[EvilLaugh laughs]], but then [[Creator/PatrickStewart the narrator]] says one bone-chilling line:

to:

* NightmareFuel: ItsEasySoItSucks: Keep in mind that this game is aimed at children and not seasoned MMO players.
* ItsShortSoItSucks: At launch, discounting property worlds, only six worlds were available, and as far as [=MMOs=] go, these worlds are very small. Later worlds, such as Crux Prime, Nexus Tower, and especially Ninjago Monastery, were larger, but much of the game's main story quests can be completed in only a few days, relying on FakeLongevity with [[ThatOneAchievement tons of grinding]] to keep people playing.

** The Spider Boss then turns on Baron Typhonus, who [[OhCrap realizes]] its intentions a second too late. He tries to flee from it, but the Spider Boss's foot [[CapeSnag snags his cape]]. The last we see of either of them, the Spider Boss is pulling a terrified and struggling Baron Typhonus into the Imagination Nexus, and then the bright blue energy turns [[PurpleIsTheNewBlack purple]] as it is mutated into the Maelstrom. This is easily one of the [[DarkerAndEdgier Darkest and Edgiest]] moments in {{LEGO}} history, and the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome background music]] certainly doesn't help.

** In beta testing, Monument Opening Music Loop 2 could only be heard while speaking to a specific NPC, Rusty Steele.

to:

* ThatOneAchievement: Many achievements require many, many, ''many'' hours of grinding to complete, whether it's completing 11,110 quick builds or smashing 6,150 Stromlings. Needless to say, by the time the game closed a little over a year after launch, most players had not come close to completing these sorts of achievements.
* ThatOneBoss:
** Butterscorch. It has the powerful moveset of most Maelstrom Dragons, plus the ability to spit out numerous fireballs in quick succession to take on multiple players. Nearly all of its attacks have knockback, making it all too easy for Butterscorch to knock players off the small floating island. In addition, Butterscorch has the greatest amount of health out of all enemies in the game and thus takes a lot of time for a team of four players to kill... and if all four players are smashed, Butterscorch regains all lost health. It is easier for a much larger group of players, especially [[TheTurretMaster Engineers]] and anyone with SummonMagic, to quickly take down Butterscorch... but in that case, good luck getting credit for the kill.

ViewerGenderConfusion:
** In beta testing, Monument Opening Music Loop 2 could only Ninja Tashi and the Ninja Guards are easily mistaken for male. Ninja Tashi at least has feminine eyelashes, but the Ninja Guards have no visible female characteristics unless the player clips the camera through their hoods, revealing their feminine lips.
** No one is quite sure whether Shu Fitts is supposed to
be heard while speaking female or male. This is due to Shu's hairstyle: is it supposed to be a specific NPC, Rusty Steele.woman's TomboyishPonytail or a man's SamuraiPonytail? Shu's facial features appear more masculine, suggesting that it is supposed to be the latter, though that hasn't stopped many from interpreting it as the former.
** There is no way to determine the gender of Maelstrom Dragons such as Butterscorch, though supposedly Bronson Jarls used to refer to Butterscorch with masculine pronouns in an early Crux Prime mission. However, many players mistakenly refer to Butterscorch as a female due to its feminine-sounding name.

* WastedSong: [[http://youtu.be/Ds0isbwBGJU Nimbus Plaza]], which can be heard in various trailers and promos, was never heard in the game itself.
** In-game, you only hear a tiny fraction of [[http://youtu.be/_Avw2WGRQi8 Strombie Combat]]. Granted, [[http://youtu.be/2khbwLB0-nk what is included]] is remixed in a way that makes it seem much longer, but most of the original track is cut out of the game.
*** Similarly, [[http://youtu.be/rUKsfXEftd4 Spider Cave]] has three bursts of furious intensity in the full track that, for some reason, are entirely cut out of the song when played in Avant Gardens Survival, Battle for Nimbus Station, and even the ''Spider Queen boss battle'', where it would have made the most sense to include them!
