Original Tribes

The closest thing to leaders for the animal tribes. The first to drink from the Chi pool and be evolved by it, they built their Lion Temple around the Sacred Pool and took it upon themselves to ensure a balanced distribution of Chi to all the animal tribes.

Tropes associated with the Lions

  • Anime Hair: Their manes appear this way.
  • King of Beasts: As they were the first animals to taste the CHI water, they took on the responsibility of governing Chima, and of distributing the CHI.
  • Panthera Awesome


Prince of the Lion tribe. Former best friends with Cragger, 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
  • Cool Bike
  • Cool Sword
  • Disney Death
  • Fiery Red Head
  • 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.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His primary weapon is a 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!: If he didn't drop the croc chi in the gorge of Eternal depth, the Dark Tribes would never have been created.
    • Later, he gives an orb to the trapped Scorpion King, who ends up throwing it down a chasm and awakening something.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Eris.
  • Super Drowning Skills: Until the penultimate episode of season two, 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.


King of the Lions and Laval's father.
  • Catchphrase: "Use it [Chi] well; use it wisely."
  • The Good King
  • 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.
    • 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.





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
  • 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.


A lioness who was raised by Tormak of the Tiger Tribe.


Living in the swamp, they are the Lions' greatest rivals. The tension between the two tribes escalates into open war after Cragger takes a Chi sample before he's ready.


Prince of the Crocodiles, elevated to king after his parents' presumed death.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In episode 20, when he turns permanently good and thought he killed Laval.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Whenever he gets hit with those spores.


Cragger's twin sister.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • 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. Though it doesn't excuse her for nearly destroying Laval and Cragger's friendship or that she took it out on the whole of Chima wanting to rule all of it for herself and destroyed the peace between the other tribes when they all clearly had nothing to do with her family issues.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: After successfully infecting Cragger with the Fog of Destiny in an attempt to control him again, she is locked by Cragger for good after he is corrupted.
    • This trope has started to become 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.
  • 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 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-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.


King of the Crocodiles, and father to Cragger and Crooler. Fell into a chasm at the end of the first episode, presumed dead. The end of the episode reveals that he and his wife survived, but are stuck at the bottom of the Gorge.




She is the 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 fallen from the skies.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She's certainly a more pragmatic and moral leader than her daughter Crooler, dismissing her plans of backstabbing the lions on pratical and reasonable concerns.

A tribe of Chima that lives on top of Eagle Spire. They are the most scholarly tribe in all of Chima, and have a vast library where they spend much of their time reading.

Tropes associated with the Eagles

Book Worm: They love reading books. In fact, Ewald was upset that he finished reading his favourite book.


Another close friend of Laval, and princess of the Eagle tribe.



  • Skewed Priorities: At times, he considers reading/writing a book more important than what's going on around him.


Nature-loving hippie-types.

Tropes associated with the Gorillas


The primary Gorilla character.


  • Cool Old Guy: The elder of the tribe, yet just as laid back and easy-going as the rest.


Pack-types, interested in taking what they want, preferably by force. Sworn allies to the Crocodiles after Crominus helped them overcome their internecine fighting until Crooler made a deal to free them from their oath in exchange for helping her behind Cragger's back.

Tropes associated with the Wolves


The 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".
    • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Hell, he's cleary in love with her if the short Wolf Speed Dating is anything to go by.
    • Plus, him trying to calm her down during Episode 7 and the fact that he acted Tsundere towards her when he though that she had died from Episode 12's copter crash confirms it.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At the end of Episode 20.




  • 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.


  • 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.

Mercenaries, usually hired by the Crocodiles or Wolves to bolster their forces.

Tropes associated with the Ravens


  • 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!"
  • Con Man: Like the rest of his tribe.
  • 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
  • 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 completly oblivious about this.
  • Verbal Tic: Tends to end his sentences with "Yes?"





  • Master 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
  • Super Intelligence: They become Geniuses when they come in range to their Legend Beast (Well Rogon did, the female of the species seems quite smarter).


  • Big Damn Hero: Pulls this off quite nicely as he not only save 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.





  • Bee Bee Gun: a variant, their Speedorz launch hives that cover their opponents in honey which attracts the bees.
  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • 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: Hell, this is 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.



The Dark Tribes


One of the Dark Tribes.


The vain Spider-Queen believes “beauty is power” and that’s certainly how she became the boss. But while the other spiders are awe-struck with her gorgeousness, she’s hideous to everyone else!


One of the Dark Tribes.


The King of Scorpions is as impatient as he’s 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 something.
  • 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.

Ice Clan

    Sabre-Tooth Tigers 

Sir Fangar

Leader of the Sabre-Tooth Tiger tribe, he was the first of the Ica Clan to be thawed out by the CHI Scorm threw into the cavern. He is the leader of the Ice Clan.


  • Meaningful Name: He is often seen holding Sykor's leash, straining to keep him under control.










Voom Voom



    Ice Bears 

Fire Tribes



  • Fantastic Racism: Initially held some disdain for the "ground-born" species of Chima.
  • 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.








Other Characters

    Other Characters (anyone who's the only member of their species so far) 

Furty (AKA Furtivo)


  • Last of His Kind: His official bio on the Lego site states that the rest of the skunk tribe has "mysteriously vanished."
  • Smelly Skunk: Except during the Hundred Year Moon, when he actually smells good.

Dom De La Woosh

  • 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 being hired by the Crocs.
  • Broken Pedestal: After the above revelation, he becomes this to Eris. Subverted with Laval, whom he complimented on his skills.



Regull - He is a mix of Eagle and 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.
  • Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: He's half-Eagle and half-Raven.


A plover who hangs around the Crocodile tribe. He enjoys cleaning Cragger and Crooler's teeth.


A Leopard who acts as a historian for the Fire Tribes.


How well does it match the trope?
