Characters from Legends of Chima. NOTE: This is a new page and does not even have all the animal tribes listed yet.
Tropes associated with the Lions
- Anime Hair: Their manes appear this way.
- King of Beasts: As they were the first known animals to taste the CHI water, they took on the responsibility of governing Chima, and of distributing the CHI.
- Panthera Awesome: They're all lions and fighters.
LavalThe prince of the Lion tribe. He was formerly best friends with Cragger until the major conflicts began when he unwittingly helped his buddy sample Chi power before he was ready, leading to the Crocodiles coming into open conflict with the Lions.
- Badass Biker: He's a pretty accomplished Speedor rider.
- Beleaguered Boss: Temporarily, when Lagravis is captured and Laval has to take charge of the Lion tribe in his place.
- Cool Bike: His various Speedors, to the point that he went to significant lengths to get it back after the Ravens tried to steal it.
- Cool Sword: Laval's most common weapon is his Valious, which takes on different forms throughout the series.
- Disney Death:
- Apparently dies in the first episode, only to return with the Lion Legend Beast.
- He fakes his death in the season one finale and returns with the Crocodile Legend Beast.
- Drives Like Crazy: While an excellent Speedor rider, he's not at all good at driving the Royal Fighter then first time he uses it.
- Fiery Red Head: He's quick to act and has a dark red mane. Becomes a literal example of this after gaining Fire CHI.
- Heel Realization:
- In episode 9, he truly understands the weight his prior actions have contributed to Chima's recent instability when he finds himself in a situation as desperate as Cragger's in episode 1.
- This happens again near the end of the series, when Laval realizes that he's personally responsible for kicking off everything bad that happened in the latter half of the series, specifically releasing the villains who would then antagonize everyone else in that half of the series.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: His primary weapon is his Valious sword.
- Honor Before Reason: Despite his father and the Elder Council knowing that Laval had very good reasons to steal an orb of Golden Chi, Laval insists on exile for breaking one of the rules of his tribe.
- Missing Mom: His mother is never seen or mentioned.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He has a tendency to do this, particularly since he inadvertently creates the villains of the second and third seasons.
- If he didn't drop the Crocodile chi into the Gorge of Eternal Depth, the Dark Tribes would never have been created.
- Later, he gives an orb to Scorm, who ends up throwing it down a chasm and awakening the Ice Hunters.
- Official Couple: With Li'ella.
- Pen-Pushing President: Used as a gag during Laval's Beleaguered Boss stint.
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Eris.
- Super Drowning Skills: Until the penultimate episode of season 2, where he finally learned how to swim.
- We Used to Be Friends: Was this with Cragger until Episode 14, where Crooler runs out of Persuader Plants, allowing Cragger to go back to being good again, then Episode 16 had the Fog of Destiny completely corrupt Cragger until Episode 20. Afterwards, they become friends again.
LagravisKing of the Lions and Laval's father.
- Catchphrase: "Use it [Chi] well; use it wisely."
- The Good King: He keeps order in Chima and makes sure all tribes get their Chi.
- Honor Before Reason: Insists that Chi must be distributed evenly and fairly, even to hostile tribes. Justified in that the environment gets a little... uppity if said Chi isn't distributed thus. It's subverted later on with Laval's exile. He knows that Laval had a good reason to steal the Golden CHI orb (it was the only way to get his friends away from the Fog of Destiny), and was willing to bend the rules for him, and manages to convince him to temporarily get out of his exile to fend off the Crocs.
- No Sense of Humor: He spends the subplot of an episode trying to understand humor upon coming to the realization that he's never laughed before. He ends up mistaking news from Laval as a joke and finally laughs.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's very supportive of his son's attempts to protect Chima.
- Blood Knight: When relegated to defrosting Crug after the Ice Hunters freeze the Crocodile Tribe in a block of ice, Longtooth says that he'd much rather be getting hurt in battle than doing this.
- Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: When Lagravis cautions Laval not to be rash, Longtooth remarks, "Good luck with that." He realizes moments later that that was a bad idea.
- Those Two Guys: With Leonidas.
- Those Two Guys: With Longtooth.
A lion exiled from Chima for so far unspecified reasons, he has survived in the Outlands for years prior to the events of the series. Eventually, Laval and the others find him, and take shelter in his home.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Crominus used a Persuader Plant to get him to steal CHI so he'd be exiled.
- Cloudcuckoolander: It's very clear that he's very... unstable. Though it could be a guise.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: His fur is dark brown, but his mane is blonde.
- Disney Death: He is presumed dead after season two but returns alive and well in the following season.
- Expy: His color scheme and overall stance in the storyline are eerily similar to Scar, while his quirky personality and association with technology make him very similar to Varrick.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrifices himself to defeat the Dark Tribes at the end of season 2. The following season reveals that he survived.
- Honor Before Reason: He didn't reveal that Crominus tricked him because if he had the tribes would have gone to war, with his love Crunket being caught up in it.
- The Reveal: He's ShadoWind.
- Verbal Tic: Every time he talks about something someone did or will do, expect him to say "Or, did/will I/you?"
A lioness who was raised by Tormak of the Tiger Tribe.
CraggerPrince of the Crocodiles, elevated to king after his parents' went missing.
- The Atoner: After Crooler runs out of Persuader Plants, and again when being freed from the Fog of Destiny.
- Badass Biker: When he's on his Speedor.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Whenever Crooler waves her special flowers under his nose and when the Fog of Destiny hit him.
- Cool Helmet: He wore a golden helmet which obscured his face after being crowned king of the crocodiles (which his father also wore before him).
- Cool Sword: His most iconic weapon is his double-bladed sword which brings Darth Maul to mind, though he changes his arsenal up more after his return to the side of good.
- The Corruptible: Suffered from Crooler's Persuader Plants so much that it's likely the reason why The Fog of Destiny almost left him permanently evil.
- Handicapped Badass: He is blind in one eye if what we've seen of his eyes is true, and seems to have adjusted well enough to be a capable swordsman.
- My God, What Have I Done?: In episode 20, when he turns permanently good and thinks he killed Laval.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Whenever he gets hit with the Persuader Plant spores. Taken Up to Eleven as the Fog of Destiny affects Cragger.
CroolerCragger's twin sister, who manipulates him during the first season.
- Bare Your Midriff: Given the Crocodiles' dress sense, this trope was inevitable. She even has a naval piercing.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Crooler is clearly manipulating Cragger to take over Chima for her, but he eventually catches on and locks her up with the intent of taking over Chima for himself.
- Did Not Think This Through: She never considers the long-term consequences of her actions (specifically, how her callousness alienates all those around her, to the point where no one trusts her).
- Dirty Coward: During one of the Ice Hunters' attacks, she used Plovar as a Human Shield.
- Even Evil Has Standards:
- In the second episode, she was as awed and humbed by the Lion Legend Beast as everyone else.
- In "Foxtrotters," she showed some regret at betraying Cragger, and at throwing the Pledge of the Pack (part of her father's legacy) down the Gorge of Eternal Depth.
- She showed some trepidation over seeing Reegul. She was actually on the verge of leaving until he saw her.
- Freudian Excuse: Despite being the first born, she was neglected by her parents in favor of Cragger, who was thought to have died while he was an egg. She tried to help Cragger, but ended up making things worse, resulting in her feeling unwanted, and waiting for an opportunity to take control of the tribe.
- Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Lagravis shows no sympathy upon hearing her story. After all, she nearly destroyed Laval and Cragger's friendship and took her anger out on the whole of Chima when they all clearly had nothing to do with her family issues.
- HeelFace Turn: After season one, Crooler began to work together with everyone, though it's mostly out of necessity rather than choice. However, the final moments of the show have her happily let Plovar clean her teeth, suggesting a change of heart.
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: After successfully infecting Cragger with the Fog of Destiny in an attempt to control him again, she is locked away by Cragger for good after he is corrupted. This trope became a Running Gag for Crooler in season two; every attempt she makes at trying to convince others to help her personal gain ends up failing in humiliating ways.
- Out of Focus: She only makes four appearances in the third season.
- Manipulative Bitch: But only when she has a Persuader Plant handy. When they run out, she's unable to get anyone to listen to her.
- The Woman Behind The Man: She seems content to wield power by proxy through her brother.
- Meaningful Name: She's crueller than the other crocodiles.
- Never My Fault:
- She blames Cragger for all her plans failing (which, considering she used Persuader Plants to make him think they were his, might have been the point.)
- Even after driving Cragger mad with the Fog of Destiny, she refuses to take responsibility for her actions.
- The Resenter: She resents both her parents and Cragger for denying her what she feels is her rightful place as heir to the crocodiles.
- The Smurfette Principle: Like Eris, this applies more in relation to her tribe than to the overall show.
- The Sociopath: One of her plans involved bringing down the Eagle Spires in the middle of a battle, which would have killed Eagles, Lions and Wolves alike, with her showing no remorse. In fact, she doesn't care who gets hurt as long as she gets her way.
- The Starscream: She tried to make a deal with some captured Spiders in season two, wanting to rule Chima with them. Fortunately, they completely ignored her.
- The Unfavorite: She sees herself as this to her parents (which, considering that what Crominus thought would be his last words to Cragger were "Don't listen to your sister," may not be too far off the mark).
- Villain Decay: As noted above, her Manipulative Bitch aspect completely tanks in season two. In season three, she doesn't actually do anything really villainous at all, instead just being snarky and insulting.
- "Well Done, Daughter!" Gal: She felt neglected by her parents and wanted an opportunity to take control of the tribe.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Sometimes has this mindset; When she exposed Cragger to the Fog of Destiny, she claimed it was so she could "save Chima" from the peace treaty he was about to sign.
CrominusKing of the Crocodiles, and father to Cragger and Crooler. Fell into a chasm at the end of the first episode, presumed dead.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Was jealous of Lavertus' relationship Crunket and used the Persuader Plants to get him banished. Years later, he regrets it.
- Love Makes You Crazy: He got Lavertus exiled because he was on the losing end of a love triangle for Crunket.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Years later, he feels this way about what he did to Lavertus.
- Overprotective Dad: He loves his son dearly, and he's a bit forceful about how and if Cragger's at fault for trying to take some CHI early.
- Artificial Limbs: His lower jaw is made out of metal.
- Dumb Muscle: An online short has him think that he can learn to fly by jumping out of a plane, but he survives the fall anyway.
CrunketThe Queen of the Crocodile Tribe, the wife of Crominus, and the mother of Cragger and Crooler.
- Bearer of Bad News: Told the tribes about the three new villains and explains how those tribes were created due to CHI falling from the skies.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She's certainly a more pragmatic and moral leader than her daughter Crooler, dismissing Crooler's plans of backstabbing the lions due to practical and reasonable concerns.
Tropes associated with the EaglesBook Worm: They love reading books. In fact, Ewald was upset that he finished reading his favourite book.
ErisAnother close friend of Laval, and princess of the Eagle tribe.
- Ace Pilot: Has shown traits of this while flying the Eagle Jet.
- Action Girl: In the first season, she's easily the most prominent female fighter.

- An Axe to Grind: This is generally her most iconic weapon.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her clothes and feathers don't cover her midsection.
- Epic Flail: One of the weapons she is shown using.
- Green-Eyed Monster: She acted like this regarding Rinona (before learning she was Rogon's sister).
- Love Triangle: With Rogon and Rinona until it was revealed Rinona is Rogon's sister.
- Nice Girl: She's always very friendly to those around her.
- No Sense of Direction: Only when traveling by land, since she usually flies everywhere and has difficulty adjusting to the different view.
- Opposites Attract: Part of the reason she likes Rogon is because he's "so simple."
- Smurfette Principle: Like Crooler, this applies more in relation to her tribe than to the overall show. Averted in the video games which introduced two other female Eagles.
- Absent-Minded Professor: He can make any weapon, but never has the time to use them.
- High-Class Glass: Wears a red monocle.
- Skewed Priorities: At times, he considers reading/writing a book more important than what's going on around him.
- Cuckoolander Commentator: For the Speedor races.
Tropes associated with the Gorillas
- Beware the Nice Ones: The friendliest, least-violent tribe in all of Chima, but don't cut down their sacred tree when they're on the verge of enlightenment.
- Everything's Better With Apes
- Friend to All Living Things: They diverted traffic on a road just to prevent a flower being stepped on.
- Humongous Mecha: Their vehicles are giant robot gorillas.

- Drop the Hammer: He commonly wields a hammer.
- Green Thumb: Loves and knows how to care for flowers.
- True Companions: Is this to Laval and Eris.

- Damsel in Distress: Kidnapped by Crooler during the hundred year moon.
Tropes associated with the Wolves
- HeelFace Turn: They spend a big portion of Season 1 as primary villains, but are allies by the end. To further emphasize it, Worriz confirms that there are no hard feelings at the start of the second season.
- Savage Wolves: They're generally presented as this in their more antagonistic moments.
- Wolves Always Howl at the Moon: And every hundred years it drives them crazy.
WorrizThe Wolf most frequently leading the pack.
- All Love Is Unrequited: He has a crush in Windra, who does not reciprocate his feelings (at first).
- Flat-Earth Atheist: Was this to the Legend Beasts, that is till he saw one.
- The Face: Why he's the Wolf most likely to be in the foreground.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: What he grows into. While surly and a loner, he can always be counted on to defend Chima.
- Not So Stoic: He briefly shows concern for Windra when her copter crashes at the end of "The Chi Jackers".
- Took a Level in Kindness: By the second season, he's mellowed out.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has three scars over his left eye.
- Older Than They Look: The Wolf Tribe's elder.
- Ace Pilot: Was the one piloting the Wolves' single helicopter and even during a 100 year moon was able to drive one of these vehicles.
- Green-Eyed Monster: She did not take Crooler trying to manipulate Worriz well.
- The Voiceless: She only ever snarls.
- Punny Name: He "will hurt" you more eagerly than the other Wolves.
- Cheerful Child: It's hard to believe that such an upbeat kid is part of an antagonistic wolf pack.
- Token Good Teammate: Wonald is this to the Wolf tribe, in that he mainly eats fruit and doesn't seem very interested in attacking the other tribes. Even during the Bad Moon Rising event, he mainly just eats more fruit than normal, not really attacking anyone else.
- Vegetarian Carnivore: He is the only wolf to eat fruit over meat. This comes in handy during the Bad Moon Rising event where he is the only wolf not attacking anyone and instead just eats more fruit than usual.
Tropes associated with the Ravens
- Artificial Limbs: Most Ravens sport at least one (with Razal and Rawzom being the exception).
- Con Man: One of their common business practices is to steal stuff and then resell it to the original owner.
- Creepy Crows: They're presented in this manner, being willing to replace parts of their bodies if needed.
- Only in It for the Money: They'll even fight for both sides in a conflict.
- Affably Evil: He may be corrupt and seeking money, but he acts pretty friendly and isn't interested in taking control of Chima.
- Anti-Hero/Nominal Hero: When he aids the heroes, such as in the season 2 story arc, as he's pretty much always doing so out of his own selfish reasons.
- Catchphrase: "Holy Rizzoli!"
- Everyone Has Standards: He balked at the idea of bringing down the Eagle Spires with the Eagles, Lions and Wolves on them... if only because it would mean losing lots of valuable customers.
- Hook Hand: His left hand has been replaced by a hook.
- Innocently Insensitive: In "The Eagle And the Bear", he states the obvious consequences of unbalancing the Bear Beast and the Eagle Beast's eggs, which distresses Eris to no end. He is completely oblivious about this.
- Verbal Tic: Tends to end his sentences with "Yes?"
- The Conscience: Acts as this to Razar.
- The Leader: Unofficial "king" of the tribe.
- Why Didit Have To Be Snakes: Is afraid of the Beaver tribe, as seen in "Good Fixers."
- Phantom Thief: For the Ravens; He managed to steal the Wolf Tribe's Mother Tooth, then place it in the Eagle Spires.
- Blood Knight: It's a children's franchise, so there's not as much blood. But they do enjoy a good rumble.
- Dumb Muscle: All of them except for Rinona are dumber than a sack of bricks. Unless their Legend Beast is around, in which case they become geniuses.
- Super Intelligence: The males become geniuses when they come in range to their Legend Beast compared to their usual Dumb Muscle. Unfortunately, Rinona, who is of average intelligence already, doesn't get the boost.
- Big Damn Hero: Pulls this off quite nicely as he not only saves his Legend Beast but also Eris from the Spider tribe.
- Love Triangle: Possibly with Eris and Rinona until it was revealed that the latter was his sister.
- Power of Love: If you hurt Eris, he hurts you.
- Older Than He Looks: Runk is a member of the elder council.
- The Brute: The brawler of the tribe.
- Ace Pilot: She can drive very well.
- Big Damn Hero: Two instances occur where the heroes are saved from the man-eating plants by Rogon's tank, but he isn't driving and just believes it to be his pet rock. When Rogon gets his intelligence boost from the Rhino Legend Beast and discovers Rinona as a stowaway, she is allowed to stay because she points out that she saved them those two times.
- Love Triangle: With Eris and Rogon, until it was revealed that she's Rogon's sister.
- Remember the New Guy?: She doesn't show up until season 2 and it is treated as if she was always a part of the Rhino tribe.
- The Smurfette Principle: For the Rhinos.
- Women Are Wiser: She's the only rhino who isn't Dumb Muscle, and their only female.
- Bee Bee Gun: a variant, their Speedorz launch hives that cover their opponents in honey which attracts the bees.
- Beware the Nice Ones: They're generally very mild-mannered and passive, but when they battle the Ice Bears, they prove to be significantly capable fighters.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: When the Ice Bears wake up, they quickly prove that they can be dangerous.
- The Load: Due to their tendency to fall asleep at the drop of a hat, they're not very reliable in combat.
- Sleepyhead: The main trait of this tribe.
- This is due to the fact that they all have Dream Walker abilities, which allows them to communicate and think even when asleep.
- Catchphrase: "Fix it, fix it, fix it!"
- The Engineer: This is their hat; they can fix anything.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: Their leader, Bezar, has white fur, compared to the rest of the Tribe's brown fur.
- Non-Action Guy: None of them are very good at fighting.
- Toyless Toyline Character: Despite appearing since the first season, Breezor is the only one to get a minifigure released. The fact that his head is a recolor of a yeti head piece (you can still see the molded frown and fangs that Breezor's tooth is printed under) that doesn't match the show design suggests that the Beavers were never intended to get toys.
- Workaholic: To the point that they consider vacations to be punishment. The only thing that ever threatens their aforementioned mechanical prowess is if too many of them fight over who gets to fix something.
The Dark Tribes
One of the Dark Tribes.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: With few exceptions, all of them have eight legs. Spinlyn only has six, as her arms are intended to mimic padipalps
- Spiders Are Scary: They're presented in an antagonistic light, using their webs to block the flow of CHI.
The vain Spider-Queen believes beauty is power and thats certainly how she became the boss. But while the other spiders are awe-struck with her gorgeousness, shes hideous to everyone else!
- The Fighting Narcissist: Incredibly vain, but willing to fight if she needs to.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: She's mostly concerned about her beauty, and was chosen as queen because the spiders consider her beautiful.
- Mirror-Cracking Ugly: In her first appearance no less.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: She appears to be the only one in her tribe to have a spider lower body among a bunch of bipedal spiders.
- Seductive Spider: She thinks she's this, and is considered beautiful to spiders. By human standards, however, she's Mirror-Cracking Ugly.
- Spider People: Yes. She's got a rare case of a spider's lower body, and the anthropomorphic upper body of a typical LEGO minifigure.
- World's Most Beautiful Woman: She became queen because the spiders consider her to be this. To everyone else, she's hideous.
One of the Dark Tribes.
- Brainwashed: Not them, but anyone they sting with their venom.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: They have a few mixed in, but unlike Spinlyn they aren't in charge of the tribe.
- Scary Scorpions: They're presented as significantly nightmarish, given their venom.
The King of Scorpions is as impatient as hes dramatic, evil and short-tempered. He wants to rule everything NOW! He controls his minions using his hypnotic sting or the force of his unpleasant personality!
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He was utterly confused by Laval actually giving him some Chi after the Dark Tribes' defeat, eventually coming to the conclusion that Laval only did it to mock him.
- Evil Wears Black: Has this and gold coloration.
- History Repeats: After Laval gives him a orb of chi, he's so thrown off by the gesture that, blaming chi for all the problems the Dark Tribes, swears off using it forever and throws the orb down a chasm like Laval did with the chi that created the Dark Tribes, and awakens the Ice Hunters.
- Ungrateful Bastard: The CHI incident above not withstanding, after he and the rest of the Dark Tribes are freed from the Ice Hunters' ice, he immediately leads them in attacking the heroes again.
One of the Dark Tribes.
Sir FangarLeader of the Sabre-Tooth Tiger tribe, he was the first of the Ice Clan to be thawed out by the CHI Scorm threw into the cavern. He is the leader of the Ice Clan.

- Villainous Crush: On Li'ella. He even tries to marry her at one point.
- Meaningful Name: He is often seen holding Sykor's leash, straining to keep him under control.
- Meaningful Name: A stealthy warrior.
- Meaningful Name: He's a psycho.
- The Smurfette Principle: The only female sabre-tooth tiger.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She loves her children, but mostly Mungus.
- My Beloved Smother: Loves her children (particularly Mungus) to the point of making them extremely uncomfortable.
- Parental Favoritism: She clearly favors Mungus over Mottrot, to the point where she requests for Mungus give up his chi to help revive Mungus (some more chi gets dropped into their hole, though).
- The Chew Toy: Almost all of his appearances have him get beat up to Maula's dissapointment.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite his frustration at his mother favoring Mungus over him, he still clearly cares for him. In one instance where Mungus gets his foot stuck, he agrees to have the mammoths retreat if Laval and Cragger help free him.
- Manchild: Less so than his brother, but he still chooses to live with his mother.
- The Un-Favourite: Maula clearly prefers Mottrot's brother, Mungus, over him.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Maula's Parental Favoritism annoys him greatly.
- Affably Evil: He's unaware of Mattrot's jealousy and acts very kind to him.
- Catchphrase: "Mungus make the hurting!"
- Dumb Muscle: The most physically powerful member of the Ice Tribes, but also the dumbest (with the possible exception of Sykor).
- Hulk Speak: "Mungus make the hurting!"
- Manchild: His relationship with his mother certainly doesn't suggets maturity.
- Non-Standard Character Design: He has a larger, far more rounded body than the other characters, and even has visible fingers and toes.
- The Dragon: To Fangar.
- The Pollyanna: Perpetually upbeat and positive.
- Body Horror: All of the Ice Hunter have this trope, but Vornon is a particularly extreme example; his head has been bolted back together from a previous wound.
- Butt-Monkey: He receives a lot of punishment in battle.
- The Eeyore: Always downcast and depressed.
- The Smurfette Principle: The only female vulture.
Ice BearsThe fourth ice tribe, initially left frozen until the final battle because of how dangerous they are.

- Blood Knight: Sir Fangar states that they love a good fight.
- Evil Counterpart: To the Bears.
- Godzilla Threshold: Sir Fangar leaves them frozen until the final battle.
- Walking Spoiler: Their existence isn't even hinted at initially.
- The Worf Effect: They do some major damage to the main tribes during their attack, but when the Bears (who had been riled up by their awakening), join the fight, they're easily smacked around by their non-ice counterparts.
- Fantastic Racism: Initially held some disdain for the "ground-born" species of Chima. When Laval, Cragger, and Eris first meet him, Fluminox immediately allows Eris to get Fire Chi, but forces Laval and Cragger to further prove themselves worthy.
- My Greatest Failure: He was meant to be part of the first Great Illumination, but denied his duty in order to raise his son, Flinx. This led to the Illumination going wrong. Subverted, however, in that Fluminox sees raising Flinx as Worth It.
- Papa Wolf: Don't hurt his son. He didn't participate in the first Great Illumination because he wanted to make sure someone would raise Flinx.
- Adorably Precocious Child: Despite his age, he acts as a voice of reason, sometimes even more responsible than his father.
- The Chosen One: He became the ninth and final component in the new Illumination.
- The Captain: Of the Phoenix Tribe's airship, the Blazing Bastion.
- Catchphrase: "It's blazing time!"
- Drives Like Crazy: Fluminox really doesn't approve of how he pilots the Blazing Bastion.
Frax and Firox

- Ash Face: His entire body gets scorched black, turning him into the panther from Eris' vision.
- Overprotective Dad: To Li'Ella.
- Papa Wolf: He's willing to do anything to protect Li'Ella. Even hand over the temple's map to Sir Fangar (not that it works).
- Tunnel King: The last survivor of the "Tunnel Cats."
- Meaningful Name: He's a good tracker.
Furty (AKA Furtivo)
- Cunning Like a Fox: He's a fox who resorts to trickery.
- Divide and Conquer: The Wolves hire him to do this to the other tribes during a Speedor race.
- Drives Like Crazy: The main reason he doesn't use a speedor.
- Karma Houdini: He never suffers any retribution for all his trickery.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: He has a terrible ShadoWind disguise in Episode 13, with a shoddy helmet and his body paint leaves out several notable areas (his orange fox feet are visible among the black). Eris immediately notices that something is wrong, but Laval is none the wiser, even thinking that his terrible driving skills are meant as a diversion.
- Last of His Kind: His official bio on the Lego site states that the rest of the skunk tribe has "mysteriously vanished."
- Nice Guy: While most of the cast doesn't want him around, he's very friendly to everyone and always apologizes for his smell.
- Smelly Skunk: Except during the Hundred Year Moon, when he actually smells good.
Dom De La WooshA peacock who is one of the greatest racers in Chima.
- The Ace: In his past, he was the best speedor racer in Chima.
- Broken Ace: Is not pleased with himself after Episode 8's race due to having been hired by the Crocs.
- Broken Pedestal: After the above revelation, he becomes this to Eris. Subverted with Laval, whom he complimented on his skills.
- Proud Peacock: He's famous in-universe for being one of the greatest racers in Chima. Woosh loves soaking in the attention so much that in "The Biggest Race Ever," he agrees to act as a distraction so that Cragger can win the race.
ShadoWindA mysterious masked racer who shows up one day and keeps returning to assist Laval. His identity is revealed in season 2.
- Badass Biker: Even Laval looks up to him.
- Cool Mask: He wears a boar mask to his identity as Lavertus.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He is dressed in black, but is one of the good guys.
- Expy: Of Racer X from Speed Racer.
- Mysterious Protector: Subverted, given that he's Lavertus.
- Spoiler: A toy including a ShadoWind minifig has been released in early 2014, and he's a Lion.
- Suddenly Voiced: Throughout the first season, ShadoWind never said a word. Then in the season 1 finale, he says his first words: "For Chima!"
- The Voiceless: He never speaks in his appearances until the Season 1 finale.
RegullA mixture of an Eagle and a Raven. He is the inventor of the fake CHI orbs (Also known as Regull Chigull) in Episode 14 - Fake CHI, Real Trouble. He never learnt how to fly until Laval and Cragger (who are now united as friends again) strapped 3 Bellow Plants on to his back, watching him float away.
- Epic Fail: The true purpose of his Regull Chigull was to make everyone who plugged it think they were birds, then use them to attack others. While the first part of his plan worked, the victims ignored any orders he tried to give them.
- Freudian Excuse: The reason he's evil? Due to his appearence, he was shunned by both Eagles and Ravens, and due to his mixed nature, his wings were of uneven sizes, preventing him from being able to fly.
- Mad Scientist: He created fake CHI orbs called "Regull Chigull", which make those who place it in their chests act like chickens after a while. Unfortunately, Cragger thinks that it's real synthetsized CHI and hands it out to all of the tribes.
- Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: He's half-Eagle and half-Raven.
- Toyless Toyline Character: He never got an official minifigure.
PlovarA plover who hangs around the Crocodile tribe. He enjoys cleaning Cragger and Crooler's teeth.
- Affectionate Nickname: He calls Cragger "Craggy-waggs" and Crooler "Crool-laloo."
- Brainwashed and Crazy: An online short has him arrive right when Crooler uses her Persuader Plant on Cragger and end up getting affected. Crooler angrily tells Plovar to go and ruin someone else's day as a way to shoo him, but he takes it as an order and flies around Chima destroying the vehicles of those who asked for some cleaning.
- Camp Straight: He acts very effeminate.
- Nonstandard Character Design: Even compared to the Legend Beasts, he's a much more traditionally-proportioned bird than the blocky designs of everyone else. LEGO Dimensions gave him a thicker and less organic design more in line with Lego's usual birds.
- Running Gag: He tends to show up at inopportune times to try and clean Cragger's teeth, resulting in Cragger constantly rescheduling.
- Token Good Teammate: During the Crocodiles' stint as villains, he contrasts from them by being very friendly to everyone no matter their tribe.
- Toyless Toyline Character: If his Nonstandard Character Design wasn't enough of an indicator.
