Voiced by: Courtenay Taylor
"Why, my little party's just beginning!"

She's out for revenge after one of her sisters was killed by a falling house.

  • Always Someone Better: Gameplaywise, has all the abilities of Gandalf, and more.
  • Big Bad: Of the Wizard of Oz world.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She loves to be wicked.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Is it ever.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: She's playable, despite the fact that in the storyline she dies just as she does in the film.
  • I'm Standing Right Here: She appears during the Fantastic Beasts story pack, when Langdon complains about witches. The Wicked Witch promptly appears behind him with a Flying Monkey, and then turns him into a frog.
  • Mind Manipulation: Can use mind control in certain puzzles.
  • Starter Villain: She's the first major boss of the game, and also serves as the first use of the Gateway's keystone mechanics.
  • Villain Protagonist: Uniquely for this game, the villain is the only playable character in this world, not the hero (Dorothy).
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Water, as per usual. She can't swim at all and will mount her broom if you try. She'll drop dead if you somehow manage to get in anyways. Also she'll get a unique death animation and melt if hit with water from an an ally's ability or vehicle.
    Gandalf: How do you suppose she ever took a bath?
    Wyldstyle: Maybe that's not the Monkeys we smell.

Dorothy Gale

Voiced by: Laura Bailey

  • The Cameo: She appears in the opening of the last level of the Fantastic Beasts level pack, watching the MACUSA wizards in action, before splashing one with a bucket of water.
  • Damsel in Distress: Along with her friends, she's captured by Lord Vortech while traveling down the yellow brick road.
  • Nice Shoes: Her ruby slippers, which are one of the foundation elements.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Her fate after being captured is never shown in the Story Mode, as she isn't shown being rescued. Subverted when she starts making cameos in the Year Two Story Packs, indicating that she did become freed.

The Tin Man

Voiced by: David Mitchell

  • Distaff Counterpart: One of the items you're asked to get for him is a Tin Woman.

Homer Simpson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/71202_1to1_mf_mugshot_homer_168.png
D'oh!
Voiced by: Dan Castellaneta
"Today's the day for Homer J!"

Homer joins forces with some unlikely heroes to defend Springfield from attack.

  • Adaptational Badass: Averted and played straight on the opposing sides of Gameplay and Story Segregation.
    • Gameplay: Homer can turn into a giant at will with his rage and his belches can shatter glass.
    • Story: He spends most of his screen time bumbling with the power plant controls or screaming in terror at the craziness going on around him.
  • The Alcoholic: Averted. His official artwork shows him with a can of Buzz cola instead of the usual Duff beer.
  • Butt-Monkey: Let's see... Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle ruin his house, he gets his pants stolen by a micromanager, gets sent to 1885 Hill Valley along with Kwik-E-Mart, and gets stuck on a wrecking ball that bashes him repeatedly against Aperture equipment.
  • Call-Back: He gets stuck on a wrecking ball again.
  • The Cameo: If the Locate Keystone in the Back to the Future level pack is found and activated, Homer will briefly appear driving his Mr. Plow truck.
  • Dirty Coward: Homer is an extremely out-of-shape man in his mid-thirties, so when Lord Business' forces lay siege to the power plant, Homer's response is to shriek and try to save his own skin by telling the Micromanagers to go after his family.
  • Fake Shemp: All of his dialogue seems to be taken from old episodes, particularly "King-Sized Homer" when dealing with the SNPP meltdown. ("Vent radioactive gas? N... O.") The bonus level he unlocks is even a direct recreation of the episode "The Mysterious Voyage of Homer", using its original audio.
  • Fish out of Water: Spending time having adventures with the likes of Batman, a canine detective and various time travelers is not an ordinary day for this laid-back family man.
  • Gasshole: Homer can break glass when he drinks Buzz Cola.
  • Glass-Shattering Sound: As mentioned above, Homer's belch is apparently so strong, it can break glass!
  • Hulking Out: Can turn giant when he gets angry.
  • Lethal Joke Weapon: Fully powered, his television (as the Mecha-Homer) shoots the strongest laser in the game. (All "cutting" of gold objects is instantaneous.)
  • Mistaken Identity: Sonic may mistake him for Dr. Eggman with his mustache shaved and a white shirt.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: On seeing the disaster ravaging the power plant, Homer declares it's his chance to show everyone how professional he is. He then proceeds to make the situation worse, dance about, then immediately fall asleep in his chair.
  • Stealth Pun: Upon seeing the Doctor.
    Homer: *gasp* Who are you?
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    Wyldstyle: Why is this guy in charge of [nuclear] safety? He couldn't cross the road!

Bart Simpson

Eat my shorts
Homer's son enjoys getting up to mischief around Springfield, but now he's helping his father defend it from outside forces.

Krusty The Clown

Hoohoohehehe!
Voiced by: Dan Castellaneta
"Hey hey, kids!"

Springfield's resident entertainer takes up the challenge of defending Springfield from outside threats.

  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Has a chargeable spin attack using his seltzer bottle.
  • Fake Shemp: Due to being one of Dan Castellaneta's characters.
  • Green Thumb: One of a few characters who can activate glowing green spots to grow a plant there.
  • Mistaken Identity: Batman may mistake him for the Joker.
  • Non-Ironic Clown: The Krusty in this game uses pies as a weapon and generally plays this trope much straighter than his normal counterpart. Especially when compared to someone like The Joker.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Runs from the burning Krusty Burger with suitcases of money when Lord Business attacks... after stopping to put up a "Flame Grilled" sign.

Edna Krabappel

  • The Voiceless: Justified more strongly here than the other non-Castellaneta characters, given her voice actress passed away before the game was made.

Itchy & Scratchy

  • The Cameo: They appear during Homer's chili-induced hallucinations, trying to kill one another.

Space Coyote

Voiced by: Johnny Cash

  • Fake Shemp: All of his dialogue is taken from the episode "The Mysterious Voyage of Homer", using its original audio. Obviously justified, due to Johnny Cash passing away many years before this game was even planned.

     Ninjago 
Based on Lego's original series Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu

All Ninjas

  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Once they have enough energy, they can use Spinjitzu to attack enemies, destroy objects and activate switches.
  • Limit Break: After destroying enough enemies to fill a circular meter, bordering his or her picture in their active upper corner of the screen, each ninja can use Spinjitzu to create cyclones of a specific element (at least in the case of the series' main characters).
  • Super Speed: All four of the ninjas, and Master Wu, can move faster than any other figure.

Kai

"You can all stop panicking - I'm here now!"

Cole

"Did someone call for a master of Ninjitsu? I think they did."

Jay

Voiced by: Mick Wingert
"Leave this to the Master of Lightning! i.e. me!"

  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: One of the few good-aligned playable characters who averts this. He'd rather do anything else over saving the multiverse.
    Jay: (When entering the game) Aw, c'mon! I was just playing a video game back there!
  • Cool Plane: He comes with the Storm Fighter note , which can shoot gold brick-destroying lightning.
  • Ditzy Genius: He's childish, and more than a little lazy, but he's still smart enough to access the intelligence panels come Year 2.
  • Hero with an F in Good: Jay is noticeably reluctant towards being a good guy.
    Jay: So we don't just have to save Ninjago, we also have to save everywhere else too?
    Cole: That's what being a hero means, Jay.
  • Inconvenient Summons: Either because he was asleep (in his ninja clothes) or because he was playing a video game.
  • Momma's Boy: On leaving, he will note he's got to call his mom, in case she worries.
  • Mr. Fixit: Can fix broken blue mechanisms.
  • Mundane Utility: On being summoned, he might ask whether he's just been brought in to jumpstart a car. He'll also offer to recharge Cyborg, should the need arise.
  • No-Sell: Is immune to electrical attacks.
  • Shock and Awe: His nunchucks and Spinjitzu attack with lightning, and he's immune to any electrical attacks.
  • Technicolor Ninjas: Bright blue.

Zane

Voiced by: Yuri Lowenthal
"I am here to assist in any way I can."

  • An Ice Android: His shurikens leave snowy trails, and his Spinjitzu creates cyclones that freeze enemies, and demolish anything else. The third form of his ship induces Harmless Freezing with an "ice laser".
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: Zane's references to the third Ninjago season, including his "Titanium" appearance, can become this to players who saw little to none of the show beforehand.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: The only Ninjago character to breathe indefinitely underwater.
  • X-Ray Vision: One of his gameplay abilities.

Sensei Garmadon

Voiced by: André Sogliuzzo

  • The Atoner: Over working with the Skullkin. His mission in the Ninjago adventure world is to send some back to the underworld.

  • The Cameo: She can be found by Rowan's device in the Ghostbusters story pack, and fixed, though she doesn't speak during this.
  • Damsel in Distress: The Citizen in Peril for "Elements of Surprise", found in Master Chen's dungeon.
  • Fetch Quest: She sends the player characters off to find some carrots, some crystals and some cogs for her boss Cyrus Borg (who didn't bother ordering them himself because he didn't want to face the delivery charges, or have to wait four to eight weeks).

     Doctor Who 

Based on the BBC's long-running Science Fiction series Doctor Who

The Twelfth Doctor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_doctor1.jpg
Voiced by: Peter Capaldi
"The Doctor will see you now."

The Doctor is a millennia-old alien who travels in time and space in his time machine, which is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. He enjoys righting wrongs, stopping power-mad dictators and defeating the occasional alien incursion who plan to enslave Cardiff or some other place. Has a bad habit of getting killed periodically, but don't worry! He comes back a new man. The Twelfth Doctor is the newest incarnation, and is now armed with a razor-sharp wit and Scottish accent.

  • Big Damn Heroes: The Twelfth Doctor and the TARDIS reappears during the final battle and forced imprisonment of Vortech. Justified since he's the only Year One character with the experience, equipment and ability to defeat an Omnicidal Maniac like Vortech.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Even in Lego form, he's still got a terrifying set of 'brows. On occasion, he'll remark that they give him authority (as he has in the actual show; see "Time Heist").
  • The Cameo: He appears in the Mission: Impossible level pack, sticking his head out of the TARDIS after Ethan Hunt walks past it.
  • Composite Character: He's based off of the 12th incarnation, who is one of the Darker and Edgier Doctors with his lack of social skills and often grumpy demeanor. By playing down his darker side in favor of the whimsical one that exists Beneath the Mask, the Lego version's behavior has more in common with Doctors 4, 10, and/or 11 (though it should be noted that the Twelfth Doctor's demeanor became noticeably lighter during Series 9 of the original series, which was under way when the game was released).
  • Deadpan Snarker: It's one of the character's trademarks, even in this Lighter and Softer adaptation!
  • Denser and Wackier: Subverted; his LEGO version came along just as Series 9 began and heralded a nicer and sillier personality change on the TV series proper. In that season he did such wacky stuff like riding a tank while shredding mean riffs in the Middle Ages. Back in Series 8, he was almost completely stoic.
  • Distressed Dude: Winds up somehow becoming a prisoner of the Cybermen, Daleks, Zygons, and Weeping Angels when the main characters go to recruit him. He was able to reach his Sonic Screwdriver despite being caught in Zygon webbing, but the main trio had already taken care of things for him.
  • Have We Met Yet?: The main trio meets the Doctor for the first time at the start of "A Dalektable Adventure", but he meets them for the first time at the end of said level.
  • Idle Animation: A pretty interesting one has him putting up a blank blackboard, then briefly turning his back on it to scan for something with his sonic screwdriver, only to turn around again and discover that someone has written "Listen" on it while he looked away. Maybe there truly was a monster after all...
  • Improbable Weapon User: In a fight, the Doctor is prepared to take all comers with a spoon.
  • Lighter and Softer: In his first season, the televised Twelfth Doctor was notorious for being quite spiky and grumpy even towards his companions and friends. His Lego version is jollier to avoid scaring kids (especially those who may not be familiar with this franchise, which isn't quite mainstream in most of the world as yet); his mannerisms in particular seem to invoke those of the Fourth Doctor. Surprisingly, his second season, which started shortly before the game's release, happened to evolve his character in exactly the same way.
  • Magic Tool: His sonic screwdriver can fix broken blue mechanisms, hack terminals, and shatter glass LEGO objects. (Unlike many of the tools and devices wielded by other playable LEGO Dimensions characters, the fact the sonic is a "magic tool" is actually consistent with how it is treated in the TV series.)
  • Mr. Fixit: Can fix broken Lego contraptions with his Sonic Screwdriver. Of all the characters in the game capable of this, The Doctor and his regenerations are the fastest.
  • Painting the Medium: His health meter shows two overlapping hearts as the symbol for each health unit, reflecting the biology of a Time Lord.
  • Reality-Breaking Paradox: According to him, this is what will happen if there's two of him about. You wouldn't notice.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Capaldi's Scottish accent is downplayed and turned into something more broadly British, to the confusion of the viewers of the LEGO Doctor Who trailer. Justified since this game is for kids worldwide, and not everyone may be able to understand Capaldi's accent. Again, however, this also reflects the ongoing evolution of the character on screen.

The Doctor's Past Incarnations

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_doctors_jpg.jpg

The preceding twelve incarnations of the Doctor appear too, representing all 50+ years of Doctor Who.

  • BFG: The War Doctor has one of these, borrowed from a Gallifreyan soldier. He only uses it in an idle animation to blast his "No More" message into the ground, though.
  • Blatant Lies: This gem from the Sixth Doctor when he enters the game.
  • Call-Back: The TARDIS interior changes to reflect its appearance in the era of the active Doctor, and is even in black and white when the First and Second Doctors enter.
    • There's also a jukebox in the TARDIS that allows the player to select their favorite Doctor Who theme to play (applicable music also plays when the various Doctors' TARDISes are entered.
    • The Fourth Doctor has an alternate interior, which appears every fourth day of the month. i.e.  This reflects the fact that in the TV series a vastly different TARDIS interior was used for a brief time.
    • The Eighth Doctor knits a scarf during an idle animation.
  • Fake Shemp: Rather than being fully voiced like the Twelfth Doctor, the previous incarnations are voiced with archive audio from their episodes. Justified for William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, John Hurt (all dead), Christopher Eccleston (his relationship with the show as of 2015 is, to put it in simple terms, pretty difficult) and Matt Smith (at the time of the game's release, it was still a bit too early for him to return to the role.)
    • Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor mostly uses audio from his appearance in "Night of the Doctor", with only a single one of his lines originating from the TV movie.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: One of the Third Doctor's lines is "Great balls of fire!"
  • Iconic Outfit: Each version of the Doctor is shown wearing their best-known costume. Somewhat zig-zagged in the case of the Twelfth Doctor, who is shown wearing a version of the outfit he wore in his first season, but by the second season, which was airing at the time of the game's release, he'd moved on to a different outfit.
  • Idle Animation: All the incarnations have different ones, and they are all funny little references in themselves.
    • The Fourth Doctor performs yoyo tricks.
    • The Fifth Doctor plays with a cricket bat or puts on his "brainy specs".
    • The Sixth Doctor fiddles with his umbrella.
    • The Seventh Doctor plays on spoons.
    • The Eighth Doctor occasionally breaks out into his "These shoes! They fit perfectly!" dance or starts knitting a Fourth Doctor-style scarf before deciding that it wouldn't suit him.
    • The Eleventh Doctor tries out some various hats, including a fez, a stetson, and the Wicked Witch's hat.
  • I Hate Past Me: One of the Sixth Doctor's lines is his musing on how his appearance is a vast improvement from the Fifth's.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: The Sixth Doctor's character is still wearing the garish coat he made famous.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Most of them use their screwdriver as a weapon. The Second Doctor uses his recorder, the Seventh his umbrella, and the Eleventh uses a mop.
  • Killer Yo Yo: The Fourth Doctor has one, and it is indeed one of his combo finishers. When he's taken off the toy pad, he gets pulled out by it, too.
  • Magic Tool: His sonic screwdriver can fix broken blue mechanisms, hack terminals, and shatter glass LEGO objects. To make sure every regeneration had the same abilities, those that didn't have a sonic screwdriver were given one (this is not inconsistent with the TV show canon as the 50th anniversary special retroactively established that all the Doctors had one).
  • Nice Hat: Both the Fourth and Seventh Doctors sport their signature headwear. Eleven tries out some various ones during his idle animation, and also uses a fez as part of his combo finisher by shoving it over an enemy's head so they can't see.
  • The Cameo: All the Doctors (sans War) can be spotted in the LEGO-fied Twelfth Doctor opening titles. Try to find them all!
    • Meanwhile, the Eleventh Doctor appears in a hidden part of "Riddle-Earth", based on the episode "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", riding past while on a triceratops.
    • The Third Doctor shows up in the hidden part of the level pack "The Dalek Extermination of Earth" to dispense a minikit, while being chased by a Time Scoop in Bessie.
  • The Nth Doctor: A unique feature of the Doctor's in-game character is that he regenerates/changes in chronological order whenever he dies. When the Twelfth Doctor dies, he begins the cycle again as the First Doctor. He has to unlock this ability by completing the level pack, though — and then die twelve times to unlock all the other Doctors. Once that's done, a single version of the Doctor can be selected via the TARDIS to play as without it cycling, if one wishes.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: The Fourth Doctor, of course. It goes well with his Fedora of Asskicking. The Eighth Doctor knits one in his idle animation.
  • That Man Is Dead: On regenerating, the War Doctor may declare "Doctor No More" (since the character felt that by actively fighting in the Time War he was no longer fit to call himself the Doctor anymore).

Clara Oswald

Voiced by: Jenna Coleman

Clara is a travelling companion of the Doctor, and she gets some unwelcome competition for the position when Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf fly through the door of the TARDIS. She appears only briefly in the game as a hidden character to be rescued for a bonus.

  • Arc Words: After being rescued, Clara utters her Series 7 arc words, "Run you clever boy, and remember me."
  • Damsel in Distress: In contrast to the TV version (who is more likely to be seen rescuing the Doctor rather than vice versa), Clara's two appearances are basically just this.
  • Demoted to Extra: Despite having been the newest deuteragonist for the LEGO Doctor Who universe, she's merely the Citizen in Peril for the Doctor Who story level and Level Pack. She doesn't even get to give out a mission, unlike all the other non-Doctor voice actors.
  • Girl Friday: Her position on the TARDIS.
  • Happy Dance: For some reason, Clara does one after she's rescued in both the main game and level pack. This isn't something she's prone to do on TV!
  • History Repeats: Got trapped by K1, just like Sarah Jane before her.
  • Iconic Outfit: Clara's costume in both Dimensions and the Doctor Who LEGO building set is based upon the highly publicized outfit she wore in "The Time of the Doctor" and "Deep Breath".
  • Oop North: Clara retains her Lancashire accent for her appearances.

K-9

Voiced by: John Leeson (via archive audio)

The Doctor's old robot friend returns to help him out.

  • The Bus Came Back: He hasn't been seen for seven years in the show, only to return for this game.
  • Fake Shemp: Most of K-9's audio comes from his appearance in "School Reunion". In fact, when he declares "Maximum Defence Mode", it's possible to hear Krillitane roaring in the background.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: K-9 shoots lasers from his nose in his default state, which are capable of destroying silver bricks, and can also be rebuilt into a laser-tool, capable of melting gold bricks and blocks of ice.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: No characters would ever demean K-9 by riding him on the show (of course, it helps that K-9 isn't large enough to be ridden anyway). He fulfills the "gadget" criteria alongside the TARDIS in the "Minifigure, vehicle and gadget" Level Pack. All in-game gadgets such as K-9 can be ridden.
  • Robot Buddy: He's Doctor Who's most popular one.

The Master / Missy

Voiced by: Michelle Gomez

One of the Doctor's few arch-nemeses, being a rival Time Lord (or Time Lady in this case), the Master delights in causing as much havoc and chaos as possible to become the Master of all. This game features the villain's most recent form — who happens to be female after years of male bodies, hence the alternative alias (it's short for Mistress). She provides missions for the player to rid London of rival aliens.

  • Berserk Button: People imitating her. Some Zygons make the mistake of doing this in "Missed Zygon", and she goes off to kill them.
  • The Cameo: Missy appears on the street in 2015 London during the Level Pack mission and speaks a few words of dialogue, too, but otherwise has nothing to do with the level.
  • Complexity Addiction: Lampshaded by Missy in the introduction to the "Rusty the Friendly Dalek" mission.
    Missy: How about you go off and take this moving dustbin for a walk and I'll stay here and come up with an over-elaborate way to destroy you... I mean... I'll stay here and keep guard because I'm nice.
  • Enemy Mine: She provides some missions to help rid London (and other places) of recurring enemies such as Zygons. She also assists in fighting them.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even The Master, who once died just to spite the Doctor, thinks the Daleks bullying one of their own is too much. Not that she had qualms about threatening to shove said Dalek over a cliff for annoying her a minute before, though.
  • Fun with Acronyms: As in "Dark Water", she tries to pretend that she is a robot and that "Missy" is an acronym for her machine name, but this time she can't keep a straight face and gives it up.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: In this game, she's good, but she likes to casually remind the characters that she can obliterate them if she's in the mood.
  • Joker Immunity: She was supposedly deceased prior to her appearance in LEGO Dimensions. Death has never stopped her before from reappearing, though, and by the time this game was released she had already appeared in the Series 9 premiere!
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: That he became a she was part of the climactic reveal of Series 8 (the other part was that the character hadn't been seen since the final Tenth Doctor story in 2010).
  • Omnicidal Maniac: But not to the same level as Lord Vortech. Also downplayed, as her appearance in the game seems to be between universe-conquering plans. She's kicking back by sending the Doctor after some competing enemy aliens wandering around London.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: When she appears in the Level Pack, she tries pulling off her "Missy" disguise, only to break down laughing halfway through.
  • Quest Giver: She gives more quests than anyone else in the Adventure World.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Doesn't appear in the trailer, but the Daleks and Cybermen do, due to her being part of the Doctor Who world rather than the main story. She also makes two cameos in the level pack where she drops a few one-liners and runs off.
  • Treacherous Quest Giver: She's a Quest Giver, and doesn't bother hiding the fact that she's evil. Then again, is this really a surprise?
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: At the end of one quest she contemplates killing the player character, but since she hasn't got her disintegrator at the moment, she'll let you go free.

The Daleks

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image7.png
EXTERMINATE THE DOCTOR!
Voiced by: Nicholas Briggs
"EXTERMINATE!"

The Daleks are the first alien enemy the Doctor ever faced, and have been chasing him between planets, and now dimensions, to stop him meddling with their plans for complete domination of the universe.

  • Absolute Xenophobe: And will be happy to kill the Doctor and all of his associates, as Wyldstyle finds out the hard way.
  • Arc Villain: The Emperor is one for the base game level "A Dalektable Adventure".
  • Call-Back: During the Dalek Emperor's bossfight, he remembers a goal just as important to the Daleks as universal domination.
    Dalek Emperor: Secure the unlimited rice pudding!
  • The Cameo: One Dalek appears during the Portal level to destroy some Sentry Turrets. GLaDOS has no idea what to make of it, but she does approve of its attitude. The original Dalek Emperor returns in a secret area of the Goonies level pack, ased of "The Power of the Daleks".
  • Evil Sounds Deep: The Dalek Emperor.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation:
    • The Daleks want to destroy the Doctor and the Cybermen (and everything else), but both can ride on a Dalek like it's a dodge'em car. It was necessary to provide the "Vehicle" part in the "Character + Vehicle" Fun Packs.
    • Since 2005, all Daleks have been depicted as being able to fly. The Dalek Mooks in the game can fly too, but the playable Dalek has to be modified in order to do so, rather than having the ability by default.
  • Lighter and Softer: Typical Daleks are the stuff of nightmares. These Daleks have their general menace lowered, and act much sillier than usual.
  • No Indoor Voice: Towards their enemies or even their fellow Daleks. They're equal-opportunity shouters.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: They were built with this mindset by another Omnicidal Maniac, Davros.
  • Token Good Teammate: Rusty, appearing in the Doctor Who adventure world.
  • Token Heroic Orc: One Dalek can join the team as a playable vehicle.
  • Villain Protagonist: One Dalek is a playable character, specifically a playable vehicle!
  • Villains Out Shopping: Can be seen usually playing basketball, skateboarding, wearing Groucho glasses or doing the more rational method of trying to get your stuck purchased good out of a vending machine by trying to exterminate it.

Davros

Voiced by: Julian Bleach (uncredited)

The chief scientist of the planet of Skaro, Davros created a Mark III Travel Machine in order to sustain his race, the Kaleds. However, the process involved mutating his race into the genocidal creatures known as the Daleks. Though he was initially EXTERMINATED by his creations, he has proven time and time again that he is one of the Doctor's most persistent foes, and serves as the primary nemesis of the Level Pack storyline "The Dalek Extermination of Earth".

The Cybermen

Voiced by: Nicholas Briggs
"Cybernetics downloaded. Delete hostile elements!"

The Cybermen came from the planet Mondas, a planet similar to Earth, where they were humans converted into cyborgs so they could adapt better to the harsh climate of the planet. That plan went horribly right when they were all successfully converted. Now they want to help their fellow humans become Cybermen, so they can remove those weaknesses like "emotions" and make them stronger. Aside from the Cybermen who appear in the main game as antagonists, an optional Fun Pack add-on also provided a playable Cyberman!

  • Adaptational Wimp: The Cybermen, particularly the version the ones in the game are based on, can adapt to any technique used against them, and fly. The game versions mercifully lack these abilities.
  • Adorable Evil Minions: The Cybermats, smaller servants of the Cybermen. The playable Cyberman can even summon a playable version.
  • Assimilation Plot: One of their main goals. In fact, one of the playable Cyberman's combo finishers is to convert the defeated enemy into another Cyberman.
  • The Assimilator: The lone "good" Cyberman has a Running Gag of offering to turn everything in his line of sight into a Cyberman (except Homer), Cybervehicle, Cybersaurus Rex, etc. He only follows through with his threats on hostile enemies.
  • Creepy Monotone: How they speak.
  • Flat Joy: Since the Cybermen purge all emotion, anything that might sound like an exclamation from them is still in the same monotone as everything else, as the playable Cyberman demonstrates when going through the vortex, and declares "I am going on an adventure".
  • Humongous Mecha: The Cyberking, which serves as a boss battle in "A Dalektable Adventure".
  • Idle Animation: The playable Cyberman does a bizarre dance, which is in fact based upon a dance performed by one of the Cybermen actors in the Series 2 gag reel.
  • Jumped at the Call:
    Cyberman (when in the portal): I am going on an adventure.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite being minifigures, they're just as eerie here as they are in their home series.
  • Leitmotif: The Cybermen still retain their theme from the series proper (though it's mixed in with a tiny bit of the Weeping Angels' theme as well).
  • Mind Manipulation: Is capable of mind controlling others.
  • Mistaken Identity: Cyborg assumes the playable Cyberman is actually a Loony Fan of his.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: The Cyberking delivers one to his tiny opponents once his construction has finished.
    Cyberking: Upgrade complete.
  • Quest Giver: One Cyberman bothers the player by making them pay for the repairs of various buildings in the Doctor Who adventure world.
    Cyberman: You will be billed for repairs, and then you will be assimilated!
  • Rogue Drone: Nobody knows what the playable Cyberman's intentions are, but he doesn't attack The Doctor on sight and doesn't cyber-convert everything, which is severely frowned upon by the Cyber-Hive Mind.
  • Super Speed: They occasionally make use of this during fights. It makes landing a hit on them difficult. The playable Cyberman will also dash very quickly toward objects in close range.
  • This Cannot Be!: "CYBERMEN ARE SUPERIOR!"
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: The playable Cyberman was, up until Year 2, one of only two characters who could blow up silver LEGO pieces underwater (the other being Gollum). It's also the only character capable of summoning a drone underwater.
  • Token Heroic Orc: One Cyberman can join the heroes. However, he still threatens to cyber-convert everything when given the chance.
  • Villain Protagonist: Since Wave 3 in Jan. 2016, a Cyberman is available as a playable character alongside the playable Dalek. Although he frequently talks about assimilating the Doctor, he functions as an ally, with his ability to smash silver LEGO and send out remote controlled Cybermats necessary for solving some puzzles.
  • Was Once a Man: Before they were converted into cybernetic beings.
  • X-Ray Vision: The playable Cybermen possesses this, even though Cybermen have never displayed any such ability.
  • You Are Fat: Says that Homer cannot be turned into a Cyberman because of this reason. To his face!
  • Your Answer to Everything: The playable Cyberman may offer to help certain characters overcome their various problems (Scooby and Shaggy's fear, for example). His solution for all of them is being assimilated. The same goes for vehicles.

The Weeping Angels

The Weeping Angels are a race of serial killers who have one major weakness and advantage: If they are seen, they turn to stone. When they are unseen, they can move at super-fast speeds to kill...

  • The Cameo: An oddly animate one appears as a patron at the Blind Pig in the Fantastic Beasts story pack.note 
  • Early-Bird Cameo: They appeared in LEGO Batman 3 prior to their appearance here.
  • Jump Scare: If they manage to kill you, this occurs. And that's after freezing the current character.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Same as the Cybermen, their appearance is played for horror.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: You can't smash their statue form.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: They move towards your position when the lights in the level flicker off.
  • Taken for Granite: Subverted — they're only granite when seen.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: They don't move when seen by any of the characters. They also don't move when the screen focuses on them; i.e. when YOU'RE looking at them. Spooky. Of course if the lights in the game are flickering...

The Autons

The Autons are a product of the Nestene Consciousness, who can turn anything made of plastic alive. For mobility purposes, it tends to use shop dummies as the bulk of its army. They turn up as part of the Adventure World missions.

The Nestene Consciousness

The Nestene Consciousness is an alien with the ability to control plastic to make it alive. Its minions, the Autons, appear as an enemy in the Adventure World.

  • Gambit Pileup: It decided that the best time for an invasion is when a few other aliens are staging invasions as well, like Zygons.
  • Never Recycle Your Schemes: Averted; it's controlling shop dummies yet again.

Madame Vastra

Voiced by: Neve McIntosh

A Silurian ally of The Doctor who works as a detective in Victorian London. She offers quests to the heroes in the Doctor Who Adventure World, sometimes alongside her manservant (or, rather, Sontaranservant) Strax.

  • Did Not Think This Through: Her decision to go with Jenny to Telos. Even if the planet weren't perpetually frozen over, and therefore not the best place for a lizard person, there's all those Cybermen about trying to "upgrade" everyone.
  • Great Detective: She gave Arthur Conan Doyle his inspiration for Sherlock Holmes.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: She is wearing the leather combat outfit she donned in "Deep Breath".
  • Happily Married: To Jenny, who is not seen in this game but heavily talked about by both Vastra and Strax.
  • Hugh Mann: Unlike in the series, Vastra doesn't bother hiding that she is in fact a lizard-woman.
  • Lizard Folk: Like the rest of her race, she has reptilian features such as scales and sharp teeth.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Most Silurians aren't fond of humans while Vastra thinks better of them, as her marriage to the human Jenny Flint shows.
  • Quest Giver: Alongside Strax in the Adventure World.

Strax

Voiced by: Dan Starkey

A former Sontaran warrior, Strax now resides with a human, Jenny, and a lizard-woman from the dawn of time, Vastra, in 19th Century London. He occasionally offers missions to the heroes.

  • Blood Knight: Strax really gets animated during a fight.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Strax doesn't have the best grasp of gender (he's from a cloned warrior race, after all. Two genders is further than he can count). He's also surprised to find out typical Victorian England homes aren't designed to withstand perfectly ordinary explosions.
  • Large Ham: "Subtlety" was never a strong suit for Sontarans.
    Strax: It is time for you to face me in glorious battle, you clockwork cowards! My mission, is to DESTROY YOU ALL!
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Another common attribute of the Sontaran race, and Strax is no exception.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Someone accidentally broke everything in Madame Vastra's mansion playing with their grenades. Obviously, it was Jenny. She's always doing that.
  • Quest Giver: He's one, alongside Vastra as well as by himself in the Adventure World.

Jenny Flint

Madame Vastra's maid / wife, who fights crime with her.

  • The Ghost: While mentioned by Vastra and Strax, she doesn't appear.

Captain Jack Harkness

Voiced by: John Barrowman

A con-man from the 51st Century, Jack became a temporary travelling companion of the Doctor, and accidentally became immortal during his travels.

  • ...But He Sounds Handsome: Jack loves complimenting and doing errands for the Face of Boe, such as when he decides to organise a big birthday party for the long-lived face. His old nickname as a poster boy was "The Face of the Boe", and it's entirely possible he'll end up becoming the Face one day.
  • Double Entendre: It wouldn't be Captain Jack without him being an Extreme Omnisexual. So they decided to riddle his dialogue full of this.
  • Extreme Omnisexual: It's Captain Jack!
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Although Captain Jack was a companion and recurring character on Doctor Who, he is most associated with its adults-only spin-off, Torchwood. This makes him one of the only Dimensions characters to feature in any property that is not considered family-friendly, such as Ethan Hunt from Mission: Impossible. And his LEGO version is not any less flirty than his live-action counterpart.
    Jack: All this living plastic! If I had a 3D printer, I could clone myself and take me out to dinner!
  • Iconic Outfit: Jack's greatcoat is present and proper.
  • Large Ham: After rescuing the dancing Ood in "Birthday Boe", stay within earshot to hear Jack/Barrowman break into song!
  • Medium Awareness: A rare in-game example.
    Jack: Is it just me, or is everyone looking extra shiny today? And I don't think it's a moisturizer thing!
  • One Steve Limit: An in-universe mention. Jack can be found try to throw a birthday celebration for the Face of Boe, an extremely long-lived alien head in a jar, which is what he used to be called when he was a kid. Jack comments on the oddity, then dismisses it.
  • Quest Giver: He's one in the Doctor Who Adventure World, asking your help to destroy some Autons and gather up his Ood dancers.

The Silence

  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Once you look away from them, you forget that you saw them in the first place. It's represented in-game as the Silence vanishing unless the player is facing in their direction.
  • Shock and Awe: If they get close to the players, they'll zap them.

Silly Robots

  • The Cameo: In a hidden part of "Riddle-Earth" based on "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship".
  • Fake Shemp: Their dialogue is taken from the episode itself.

Ice Warriors

Inhabitants of Mars and occasional foes of the Doctor.

Clockwork Robots

Service droids from 51st century spaceships who've started harvesting human parts due to a malfunction and time travel in order to make their repairs. They hide their clockwork bodies under fancy clothing.

  • Anachronism Stew: They're dressed for the pre-Revolutionary French royal court, while they're in turn-of-the-century London. However, on their ship, they're dressed appropriately.

Rusty the Dalek

A Dalek who by freak accident has turned good...ish, and declared war on all other Daleks. He appeared in "Into the Dalek" and an Adventure World mission has the player escorting him.

  • Denser and Wackier: In the show, Rusty turned because the mechanisms in his armour keeping him like all the other Daleks broke. Here, he's turned because they bullied him!
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The Daleks bullying Rusty, and breaking his gun, means all other Daleks must die. On the other hand, this is somewhat subverted, as most Daleks think that everything else in the universe must die for the crime of "Not being a Dalek," so him having an actual reason is far more than they have.
  • Token Heroic Orc: Averted, Rusty states he is not a good Dalek, just that the other Daleks are bad. (In "Into the Dalek", he only regards the Doctor himself as a good Dalek.)

Kate Lethbridge-Stewart

Chief Scientific Officer of UNIT, and daughter of one of the Doctor's oldest friends.

Osgood

UNIT scientist, and serious Doctor fangirl.

Ood

A genial race from the Ood Sphere, usually found in the 41st century.

  • Not So Stoic: Ood aren't known for being very animated, but the Ood that appear with Jack Harkness dance about. Quite literally, as for some reason Jack is training them to be dancers!

Based on DC Comics properties

Batman

See LEGO Dimensions Main Characters

Robin

Voiced by: Scott Menville

  • Badass in Distress: He gets captured by Lord Vortech while he and Batman were chasing Bane through Gotham City.

Cyborg

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76028_cyorg_1488x1984_mugshot_360w_2x.png
He sounds kinda different today.
Voiced by: Bumper Robinson
"Booyah!"

  • Catchphrase: "Booyah!"
  • Composite Character: Of himself. Like other Lego depictions, he has his Teen Titans personality, but is an independent member of the Justice League like in the comics. He can also become his Teen Titans Go! self when he's in that world.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: He carries a laser gun that can melt gold bricks or blocks of ice.
  • Giant Mecha: He's capable of turning into one. He also comes with a completely different mecha.
  • Mistaken Identity: The Wicked Witch mistakes him for the Tin Man, and the ACU trooper believes he works at another, more dangerous park.
    • With the Wicked Witch, this may be a Mythology Gag; as "Tin Man" was one of his aliases.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: His cybernetic implants allow him to go underwater for prolonged periods.

Superman

"Look! Coming out of the rift! It's me: Superman!"

  • The Ace: Has most of his abilities from comics, making him one of the more versatile characters in the game.
  • An Ice Person: Freeze Breath.
  • The Cameo: He briefly appears in the Scooby-Doo level thanks to the Locate Keystone... only to be sucked into a rift.
  • Composite Character: Has the appearance and personality of his Post-Crisis self, but is apparently dating Wonder Woman like his New 52 self note .
  • Eye Beams: Heat Vision
  • Flying Brick: Any non-characters he flies or walks into will automatically be damaged or destroyed the second he touches them. This can make it a little tricky for him to use vehicles and gadgets since he may accidentally hurt it instead.
  • Ground Pound
  • Hope Spot: Superman appears briefly in story mode to help the Sauron-controlled Metropolis... only for a rift to suck him out of the battle.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Immune to damage.
  • Regenerating Health: Even if Superman does get injured, he'll just heal after a few seconds.
  • Smug Super: While most versions of Superman are the definition of Humble Hero, this version is a little too self-confident about himself, though without being actively malicious or rude.
  • Super Speed: Mostly downplayed (either walking or flying, Superman's no different than most other characters). However, when building things, it comes into play. Superman always builds at super-speed.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: If active at the same time as Gimli, Superman will caution him to be careful with the axe, and muse that a renaissance fair must be in town, without noticing that Gimli is a dwarf.
  • X-Ray Vision: One of his abilities.

Wonder Woman

Voiced by: Laura Bailey
"Hera! Give me strength!"

  • The Ace: Had possibly the most abilities among the Year One characters, exceeding even Superman in number.
  • Always Someone Better: Gameplay-wise, has all the non-stealth abilities of Batman, and more. Accounting for Wondy's Invisible Jet (and its rebuilds), then she really can do everything that Batman can.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: If left to idle, she'll start twirling around (since that was how the version of her from the 70s show switched between identities).
  • Flying Brick: Her abilities include flight, strength, and invulnerability.
  • Grumpy Bear: She frequently sounds impatient or irritated by things.
  • Mind Manipulation: Can use her lasso to mind control characters.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: She's capable of deflecting projectiles, but even without that she is functionally invulnerable to pretty much everything.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: She can go underwater indefinitely with no problem.

Aquaman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aquaman0.jpg
How outrageous!
Voiced by: Brian Bloom
"This is most outrageous!"

  • Baleful Polymorph: During his cameo in Fantastic Beasts, a MACUSA agent turns him into a fish.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: On occasion.
  • Composite Character: Has the look of his comic book incarnation, but he's got a lot of the character traits of his Brave and The Bold incarnation.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Going by the comics, Aquaman should be as strong and durable as Superman and Wonder Woman, given he's capable of withstanding the pressure and temperature that comes of operating in the ocean. Except in the game, he isn't. On the plus side, he also lacks his typical weakness of being weakened when separated from water for prolonged periods.
  • Graceful in Their Element: Aquaman is a demon when he swims, being one of the fastest swimmers available.
  • Green Thumb: One of a few characters who can activate glowing green spots to grow a plant there.
  • Making a Splash: He's capable of shooting water about via his trident.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Besides being one of few characters who can dive underwater, he's the only Year-1 character who can summon things from pools of water to solve puzzles.

The Joker

"Well, well! Looks like it's my lucky day!"

  • Acquired Poison Immunity: He's immune to toxic chemicals thanks to his origins involving surviving a vat of chemicals.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Works together with Lord Business during the Simpsons level.
  • Call-Back: Joker refers back to the events of LEGO Batman 2, restoring the giant Joker robot last seen in that game.
  • The Dragon: Acts as Vortech's second in command.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Whilst one of the more whimsical of the villains, Joker is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous, having been able to tear apart the heroes' lair while they were distracted by Vortech, and disassembling X-PO to boot.
  • Monster Clown: Natch.
  • Shock and Awe: Can power up certain switches with his electric buzzer.

Harley Quinn

Voiced by: Tara Strong
"Heeeeeeeeeere's Harley!"

  • The Cameo: She appears as a chef at the Chinese takeaway during the Ghostbusters story pack, having some difficulty with the ingredients as she needs to catch them first.
  • Drop the Hammer: Carries around a giant mallet in the open.
  • Lampshade Hanging: On boarding her Harley-mobile, she'll ask how she was able to afford the thing in the first place.

Bane

Voiced by: Steve Blum
"Speak of the devil and he shall appear."

  • Book-Ends: Bane is both the first opponent Batman chases after (albeit in a cinematic), and one of Lord Vortech's defenses in the final battle.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: "Aw, we were having such a nice chase!"
  • Composite Character: He has the look of his comic book incarnation, but takes several cues from his The Dark Knight Rises incarnation.
  • Hulking Out: His Venom-infusion is represented by him going from a normal minifig to a bigfig.
  • No-Sell: Bane is immune to toxic waste.

Green Arrow

Voiced by: Chris Hardwick
"Time to make some bad guys 'quiver' in their boots!"

  • Archer Archetype: Per his weapon of choice.
  • Composite Character: He's mostly his DC Comics self but he finds Captain Jack Harkness oddly familiar.
  • Motor Mouth: The subtitles even have trouble keeping up with him.
  • Nerf: In Lego Batman 3, Green Arrow was able to hack computer terminals and blow up silver bricks. He is unable to do so here.
  • Pungeon Master: Spends almost as much time slinging arrow-related puns as he does actual arrows.

Supergirl

Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren
"Where am I? Oh, whatever. Time for another adventure!"

The Riddler

  • Arc Villain: Overtakes Minas Tirith using the Balrog in the Lord of the Rings level.
  • Hijacking Cthulhu: Repeat, he's using the Balrog!
  • Smug Snake: As is pretty typical for him, he's taken over somewhere and set up loudspeakers so everyone can hear him brag, while he makes his riddles.

Lex Luthor

Two-Face

Voiced by: Troy Baker

  • Flunky Boss: Part of his battle consists of sending his goons and Sauron's orcs at you while he shoots at you atop an Oliphaunt.

Brainiac

  • Demoted to Extra: Goes from the Big Bad of LEGO Batman 3 to one of Riddler's flunkies.
  • Fake Shemp: Most of his lines appear to be recycled from LEGO Batman 3.
  • Size Shifter: His technology is what earned him his collection of cities roughly the size of countries packed neatly in jars.

General Zod

Voiced by: Nolan North

Lois Lane

Voiced by: Courtenay Taylor

  • Damsel in Distress: The Citizen in Peril for "Painting the Down Black".

  • Intrepid Reporter: Even when Sauron is overtaking Metropolis, he still focuses on getting the perfect shot.
  • Unfazed Everyman: A large number of citizens are terrified by Sauron's invasion. Jimmy's just interested in it from a news standpoint.

The Flash

  • Contrived Coincidence: What exactly the Flash, who typically operates in either Keystone or Central City, is doing in Metropolis and Gotham isn't said.
  • Demoted to Extra: After being a playable character in the main stories of both Lego Batman 2 and 3, here he only shows up in the DC adventure world to give out a quest.
  • Quest Giver: Asks the player to assist him in fighting off some criminals.
  • Super Speed: He is the Fastest Man Alive.

     Back to the Future 

Based on the film series Back to the Future

Based on the Lego Ideas design, this pack introduces Dr. Emmett Brown, the creator of the time-travelling DeLorean, as well as his friend and accidental test subject, Marty McFly.

Dr. Emmett Brown

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/71230_1to1_mf_mugshot_doc_brown_168.png
Great Scott, Marty!
"Great Scott! Where am I? 'When' am I?"

The scientist who made a time machine... out of a DeLorean. When you have to visit the past, why not do it in style?

  • Adaptational Badass: In the film, he dies almost immediately after the Libyans show up in the beginning. In the Back to the Future level pack of this game, he dodges their attacks for a while before getting KO'd.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's one of the older playable characters in the game, second to the thousand-year-old-and-counting Doctor.
  • Cool Train: His vehicle is the Time Traveling Train from the end of the third film.
  • Einstein Hair: As in the film. The Ideas set with the original minifigure wasn't allowed to provide accurate enough hair for many fans, so this one includes a new hair sculpt.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: At the end of the BTTF level pack.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: He brings his pet dog, Einstein, along with him when he time-travels.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Doc hits enemies with a clock.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Marty, who is a teenager. If both are on the pad together, Doc sometimes affectionately calls Marty "my boy" and says he's glad to have his company.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: His train doesn't show up until the end of the third film after the DeLorean is destroyed.
  • One Steve Limit: Zigzagged. He and Emmett of The Lego Movie share the same first name, but Marty, the only person who "speaks" to him in the game, usually just calls him "Doc".
  • Ship Tease: An NPC Doc can be found in 1885 Hill Valley, and at the end of his quest is very eager for the chance to speak with Clara Clayton, his future wife.
  • The Rival: To the Twelfth Doctor, if their bantering is anything to go by. Both of them are time-travelers and doctors and they rib each other about perceived defects.

Marty McFly

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/martymcfly_1.jpg
This is heavy.
Voiced by: Michael J. Fox
"I've got a feeling we're not in Hill Valley anymore. Or are we?"

After Emmett's pet dog, Marty became the first person to try out the time travelling vehicle, and ended up in the 1950s. This time, he assists his scientist friend as they travel to the Wild West.

  • Berserk Button: Apparently Marty hasn't yet gotten over being called "chicken".
  • Cool Board / Hover Board: Just like in the second film. Hot pink and everything!
  • Crippling Overspecialization: He only has one ability: Sonic Smash. One of the Batmobile upgrades, and characters with other, more useful abilities, have this already so the player gains nothing by using him. His only saving grace is he's required to access the Back to The Future level pack. (His car is much more useful alone, being one of two vehicles able to time travel on Non-TARDIS travel points)
  • Dreamworks Face: Marty's Minifig sports a raised eyebrow and mischievous sideways smirk.
  • Glass-Shattering Sound: Can use his guitar-playing to blast windows to pieces.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: He is a teenager who is friends with Doc Brown, one of the older characters in the game.
  • Rockers Smash Guitars: His weapon is a guitar that he swings around.

Lorraine Baines

Marty McFly's mother, who fell in love with him when he traveled back to the 1950s and almost unknowingly wiping Marty from existence.

  • Damsel in Distress: She fills the role of Citizen in Peril for the Back to the Future level.
  • Demoted to Extra: Since the Back to the Future Level Pack skips over the Enchantment Under The Sea subplot (along with pretty much all of the rest of the film), the only purpose she serves here is as the level's Citizen in Peril.

Clara Clayton

Voiced by: Karen Strassman
A school teacher from 1885, and Doc Brown's wife.

  • Damsel in Distress: She fills the role of Citizen in Peril for "Once Upon A Time Machine in the West."

Marty McFly, Jr.

Voiced by: Michael J. Fox

The son of Jennifer Parker and Marty McFly.

  • Escort Mission: His main mission involves protecting him from Griff and his goons.
  • Recurring Extra: Marty Jr. can frequently be seen in the background of the Ghostbusters story pack.

Marlene McFly

Voiced by: Michael J. Fox

The daughter of Jennifer and Marty.

  • Crossdressing Voices: As in Back to the Future Part II, she's voiced by Michael J. Fox.
  • It's All About Me: She brushes off some minor chores her grandma gave her just to hang out with her boyfriend. And when found by the player, she can be heard moaning about how "difficult" her life is.

Griff Tannen

  • The Voiceless: Despite Tannens having a tendency to be loud, Griff never says a word.

Seamus McFly

Voiced by: Michael J. Fox

  • Butt-Monkey: Seamus falls foul of the film's habit of someone winding up in manure, appearing face-down in a large pile of the stuff. The player characters help get him out.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: On being freed from aforementioned pile of manure by a crane, Seamus decides to go to the town saloon and sit down.

Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen

Voiced by: Liam O'Brien

  • The Cameo: Makes a cameo in the main story level, and is the miniboss of an Adventure World quest.

     Portal 

Based on Valve Software's video game series, Portal.

Chell

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/71203_1to1_mf_mugshot_chell_168.png
Portrayed by: Alésia Glidewell (trailer)

  • Adaptational Badass: Although more of a compromise than anything else, LEGO Chell is capable of basic combat, where she could not do so in the Portal games. Also, the Portal Gun, which was strictly a non-lethal tool in its home game, was given the ability to attack and break objects with shotsnote .
  • Crippling Overspecialization: In terms of abilities. She is the only character in the game to have a Portal Gun, making her necessary for some exploration... and that's just about the only thing she's got going for her, outside the acrobat-exclusive Double Jump.
  • Face Palm: Does this during a cutscene to express her annoyance at Wheatley saying the word 'annoying' repeatedly.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Much like the powered-up gravity gun, one of Chell's combo finishers is to fling the poor foe around like a ragdoll.
  • Not the Fall That Kills You: Justified. Although not present on her minifig, Chell sports special boots that protect her from normally lethal falls. Subverted in that falling damage isn't a problem for anyone in this game.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Apart from a few moments, she always has a stern look on her face.
  • Portal Door: She can create these using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device.
  • Silent Protagonist: As she is in her home series. It's even lampshaded in her trailer: The player in this trailer is revealed to be Chell herself, who picks up the minifigure and opens her mouth in a speaking motion, only for the video to glitch out.
  • Sticks to the Back: Her Portal Gun does this when she's climbing ladders, something that's not in the home series.
  • The Stoic: Even moreso than Batman, and that's saying something. The only time she really changes expression is when Wheatley is getting on her nerves.
  • Weapon of Choice: The Portal Gun. While it can be used as a ranged weapon, its user can also use its shots to create portals on proper surfaces, creating a two-way gateway between vast distances.
  • When She Smiles: It's incredibly rare, but when she smiles it's absolutely adorable.

GLaDOS

Didn't we have some fun though?
Voiced by: Ellen McLain
"Welcome to the Aperture Science Computer-Aided Enrichment Center. I'd say it's nice to meet you, but it's not nice to lie."

GLaDOS runs the Aperture Science Enrichment Center with an iron fist, testing hapless subjects with whatever new toys Aperture Science has cooked up.

  • Affably Evil: She sounds pleasant, even when she's being mean to the main characters.
  • Arc Villain: For "GLaD To Meet You" and the Portal 2 level pack.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: GLaDOS's secret admiration of Chell is hinted at several times in Portal 2, but here she outright states that she misses her, and expresses her disappointment when she doesn't appear. Naturally, this changes when Chell reappears.
  • The Cake Is a Lie: Subverted. GLaDOS doesn't use the promise of cake as motivation for the main trio, but merely admits to its "existence". The cake does indeed exist, as one of the foundation elements.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Don't let the computer voice fool you, she's an expert at it. It gets to the point Wyldstyle assumes sarcasm is her only language.
  • Enemy Mine: The main trio go out of their way to enforce this trope for the final battle, by replacing her faulty morality core with a working one and promising to change it back after Vortech's defeat.
  • For Science!: Her primary motivation to continue testing Aperture Science equipment on test subjects. She even starts ivading other dimensions to bring tests to the heroes after escaping Aperture.
  • Mythology Gag: Gandalf seems to have the wrong idea of what Aperture Science does.
  • Not So Stoic: She always has a calm demeanour, until things don't start going her way or is confused, such as with her encounter with a Dalek or when she's being reluctantly recruited for the final mission.
  • Realistic Diction Is Unrealistic: Being a perfectionist AI, this is to be expected. Briefly averted, however, when she's bewildered by the Dalek being summoned into the level to destroy a turret. But even then, it's spoken in the same calm and collected tone as everything she says.
  • Snap Back: Despite being all buddy-buddy with Chell at the end of Portal 2, she's all too eager to try and kill her once she returns to the facility.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Played for Laughs when recruiting her for the final mission.
    Wyldstyle: (after replacing the bad morality core with a good one) Well, I guess we'll be seeing a nicer side of her from now on!
    GLaDOS: And that is because you are a fool. A fool with stupid hair.
  • Villains Never Lie: While she's usually a severe aversion, during the Adventure World she'll state that Rattman's insanity was due to "non-test related reasons", which is actually true.
  • You Are Fat: As usual, alludes to it in an indirect way. Occasionally, she'll tell you that the false promise of cake was for your own good, in that you're not receiving the added BMI and calories you would have if there actually was a cake provided for you. She also says that the Aerial Faith Plates were programmed to accommodate your weight.

Wheatley

Voiced by: Stephen Merchant
Yeah, it's me! Can I say, I really love these new blue portally things.

  • Affably Evil: He accidentally lets slip that he's totally planning to take control of the facility again, but he hangs around the test chambers with Chell for the time being. He eventually gives up on this plan, deciding he would rather be "BFFs forever" with Chell and suggests having the Space Core put in charge of the facility instead.
  • Call-Back: GLaDOS and Wheatley love reminiscing on the time Wheatley somehow managed to take control of, and ruin, the facility. Although only Wheatley enjoys those memories.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • Once again, Wheatley tries with no success to hack technology, resorting to brute force to destroy it.
    • You can break the screens he appears on, and he'll express the same annoyance and frustration he did when it happens in his home game. Better yet, it leads to getting a Gold Brick.
  • *Cough* Snark *Cough*: When asking you for restoration money in the Adventure World to repair the relaxation chamber, he'll mention destruction caused by someone, "*cough*-Chell-*Cough*". This is despite the fact that he's the one that the destroyed it in the opening to Portal 2.
  • Gravity Master: In a sense; somewhere along the way in his space adventures, he gained the ability to ignore gravity altogether. Not enough to support the weight of a human, though. This is only in the level pack, whereas he's connected to a rail in the story.
  • Missing Steps Plan: Wheatley tries to save the player characters in the main story, while taking all the credit, but his plan is missing several key steps beyond "save everyone" and "be the hero". Of course, considering his purpose is to be an "idiocy core" to hamper GLaDOS' plans, this is appropriate. His idea to hijack GLaDOS with the Space Core in control is implied to end in disaster, but we never see the results of doing so.
  • Non-Player Companion: He "teams up" with Chell, only insofar as he simply keeps up with her as she progresses through the Aperture Science facility, similar to his early appearance in Portal 2. He's not playable, due to lacking a physical minifigure. And, as he points out many times, limbs.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: During the elevator cutscene, he gets uncomfortably close to Chell, to the point where he's pressed up against her side. Needless to say, she is quick to push him away.
  • Oblivious to His Own Description: Complains about how annoying the Space Core is... by annoyingly repeating the word annoying over and over until Chell backhands him.
  • Talkative Loon: Just like in his home series. Sometimes to the point that his mission subtitles have to be shrunk down to the point of being near-unreadable.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Blue portally thing appears and out pops the space-trekking Wheatley. How did he do it? He has no clue.

Cave Johnson

Voiced by: J. K. Simmons

The now deceased founder of Aperture Science, who lives on through the various pre-recorded messages he left around the ruins of his older facilities.

  • Brain Uploading: In the Portal 2 level pack he finally managed to upload himself into a personality core, sort of like what happened to him in an early version of that game's story. Though prior to a firmware update, they didn't show his name like the other "In Peril" characters, and referred to him as the Space Core on the results screen, likely as an oversight.
  • Can't Take Criticism: He claims to avert this by saying he's not made of glass, before getting sidetracked and asking Caroline to look into making a wing of Aperture out of glass.
  • Everyone Has Standards: While Cave has no problem inflicting mad science on his employees, he's still unnerved by someone who'll wipe out an entire species in an entire afternoon (never mind that the species wouldn't have existed if not for him and his insane ideas).
  • Posthumous Character: Only appears as recordings, due to long ago dying of moon dust poisoning.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: If found and freed in the Level Pack, he'll thank his rescuer, then scold them, since by rescuing him they're not testing. Inverted if sometimes upon being rescued, he'll instead issue the player $1 extra dollar for rescuing him.

Space Core

Voiced by: Nolan North

  • Broken Record: Talks of nothing but space, all the time.
  • Gravity Master: Whatever happened to Wheatley to give him gravity powers happened to him, too.

Adventure Core

Voiced by: Nolan North

Cake Core

Voiced by: Ellen McLain

  • Gravity Master: Just like the other cores, it stays suspended in midair, though unlike the other cores, it doesn't have an explanation as to why it can.
  • Machine Monotone: Speaks in a computer-filtered voice, though higher than in Portal.
  • Unexplained Recovery: It was incinerated during the events of Portal, yet it reappears here no worse for wear.

Sentry Turrets

Voiced by: Ellen McLain

  • King Mook: The Animal King turret, who is summoned to clear the wreckage blocking the entrance to Minas Tirith.
  • Laser Sight: A red laser beam is emitted from their lens.
  • Heavily Armored Mook: Completely immune to any attack. The only way to defeat them is to knock them over, much like in their home series.
  • Villain Protagonist: Chell's vehicle is a turret that can be ridden.
  • Villains Out Shopping: The opera-singing turrets from Portal 2's ending reappear, now with their own choir room.

The Mantis-Men

  • Ascended Extra: In Portal 2 they were mentioned briefly as one of Aperture's failed experiments. Now you can encounter them in a few missions of the Portal adventure world.
  • Kill ’Em All: One mission in the Adventure World involves having to kill a horde of thirty of them, after which Cave claims you've killed all of them.
  • Was Once a Man: Getting injected with praying mantis DNA will do that to you.

Franken-Turrets

Grotesque hybrids of an Aperture Science Weighted Storage Cube and two Turrets, created by Wheatley during his time in control of the facility.

  • Escort Mission: All three missions involving them play out like this.

Doug Rattmann

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dougrattman.jpg
A former Aperture Science employee who managed to survive GLaDOS's takeover of the facility. Makeshift dens filled with insane scrawlings made by him can be found throughout the enrichment center.

  • Ascended Extra: While his role here is significantly smaller than his role in Lab Rat, getting a physical appearance at all is still more than Portal2 itself did for him.
  • Easter Egg: A surprisingly well-hidden one, at that. While his dens are easy enough to find, it took over a year for players to actually find the man himself.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: He can be seen tiptoeing through a crack in the ceiling in Test Chamber 02, peeking through a hole in the wall in Test Chamber 06, using the elevator behind the malfunctioning exit door in Test Chamber 07, and wandering around one of his dens in Test Chamber 09.

My precious
Voiced by: Liam O'Brien
"It's around here somewhere... my precious..."

  • Adaptational Heroism: His quest in the Lord of the Rings adventure world has him climb up Mount Doom to destroy the ring in an attempt to do good, something neither personality would even think of doing normally. It's later revealed at the end of the quest as practice for when he gets the real ring.
  • Butt-Monkey: He gets knocked off of Minas Tirith during the Balrog fight, has his Precious stolen by Sonic, and the Riddler doesn't let him do any riddles.
  • The Cameo: Can be found in the first part of the Sonic Level Pack, hiding in a dark cave before being driven out by the player character smashing the place up.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: In this game, he uses fish as boomerangs for use on certain switches.
  • Serious Business: Sméagol does the riddleses! The Riddler broadcasting his own riddles across Minas Tirith is grounds for Gollum to climb all the way up to the top of the city just to attack him.
  • Split Personality: His other one is named Smeagol. The two bicker and argue frequently.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Gollum can destroy silver bricks.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: Gollum is capable of going underwater for prolonged periods.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Gollum is one of only two characters capable of going underwater who can go through chutes.

Aragorn

  • The Cameo: He appears in the storyline at the re-enactment of Gandalf's fall at Moria.
  • Demoted to Extra: Despite being one of the central characters of the Lord of the Rings story, he has next to no presence in the game, especially compared to the other members of the Fellowship. Gandalf is one of the main protagonists, Frodo is involved in the main plot, Gimli and Legolas are playable characters, and both Sam and Boromir are at least both Citizens in Peril and give out quests in the adventure world. Aragorn meanwhile only appears in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment during the cutscene at the beginning of the game.

"That's right boys. It's Dr. Venkman!"

Slimer

Voiced by: Frank Welker

  • Adaptational Superpower Change: In Ghostbusters (2016), he hijacks the ladies' Ecto-1. In the Story Pack, he creates a ghostly, roomier duplicate of it (which looks like basically a glowing green version of the car included with the Ecto-1+2 Lego set).
  • Big Eater: Naturally. He talks about food in his mission dialogue a few times.
  • Haunted Technology: Will possess vehicles and gadgets to operate them rather than riding them like the others.
  • Last Lousy Point: Was initially the only character that can break glass underwater, and he is in the last Year-1 wave.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: He wants to prove his worth as a potential Ghostbuster, and takes you with him on a mission to bust some ghosts.
  • Sickly Green Glow: Slimer himself. The items he possesses also take on a greenish glow.
  • Sidetracked by the Analogy: By his own analogy - in his mission in the Ghostbusters Adventure World, he mentions that being on the receiving end of a Proton Pack is no picnic, then wonders if there's any food nearby.
  • The Unintelligible: Speaks in grunts and slobbery noises as usual, but the text boxes for the mission provide translation.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: So far, he's one of only two characters (the other being Jake the Dog) that can shatter glass underwater.

Walter Peck

Voiced by: William Atherton

  • Adapted Out: Since the game is more family-friendlier than the original film, all speculation on Peck's genitalia and their whereabouts has been removed.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: Since the game excises his first meeting with Peter Venkman, he just appears to shut the Ghostbusters down with no real cause.

  • Shock and Awe: Gozer attacks by zapping anyone in range. Convinient, when there are two generators that need power just lying around on the rooftop the Ghostbusters fight Gozer on.

  • The Unintelligible: They speak only in electronically-filtered gibberish and screams, which the subtitles translate.

Manti Landers

Gauntlet Thief

The sneaky little pickpocket from Gauntlet now works with Vortech, and he's just as infuriating as ever.

  • Catchphrase: Hehehehe! You can't catch me!
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: At the end of "All Your Bricks Are Belong To Us", he winds up sliced in half as a result of his fight with the heroes. He manages to put himself back together in time to get yelled at by Vortech.
  • Stylistic Suck: Similar to the Defender astronauts, he moves in a way that looks like it came straight from his arcade sprites. His voice clips are also bit-crushed to sound like they came from his original game.

Merlin the Wizard

Thyra the Valkyrie

  • Inner Fourth-Wall Observer: Like the Gamer Kid, she knows that she's in a video game, but in her case, she's only aware that she's in Gauntlet.
  • Quest Giver: Requires your help getting out of a poorly designed maze in the Adventure World.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Serves as this for Gauntlet and Midway Arcade ingame.
  • The Voiceless: She has no voice actor, and speaks only in text boxes.

Scooby's best friend and fellow member of Mystery Inc.

  • Big Eater: One of his most known characteristics. During his trailer alone:

    • His own minifigure inherited this habit, eating an entire pizza while Shaggy and Scooby were playing the game.
  • Light 'em Up: He has a torch he can use to light up dark areas.
  • Not Quite Flight: He, as with Scoob, can "hover" across gaps by flailing his limbs.

Owen was a former ranger of the theme park Jurassic World, and became one of its few survivors when the dinosaurs escaped from the enclosures and rampaged through the park.

  • Arbitrary Scepticism: He'll dismiss the idea of spaceships as preposterous, even as he's flying one.
  • Call-Back: The Velociraptor that Owen can ride looks like Blue, who was the only member of her pack to survive the events of Jurassic World (At least, not the LEGO version).

SPACESHIP!!!!
Voiced by: Charlie Day
"Let's go! Come on! Let's build a spaceship!"

Benny is an 80's minifigure obsessed with creating space vehicles.

  • Adaptational Badass: He goes from being utterly incompetent at hacking into Lord Business' computer systems to being capable of hacking computers and technology most others can't. The LEGO Movie Videogame hand waved this by claiming the hacking terminals are made with "80's technology".
  • The All-Solving Hammer: After breaking the Middle-Zealand sign, he considers using a spaceship to try and fix it. He then reconsiders.
  • The Cameo: Briefly appears during the storyline, in "The End is Tri", when Wyldstyle complains about the gravity going haywire thanks to Vortech. Benny retorts, while standing on the side of the building, that he'd have noticed if gravity wasn't working. He then gets sucked into a rift.
  • Fan of the Past: He's also fond of 80s stuff.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: His gun can shoot blue lasers.
  • Genius Ditz: Skilled in technology and hacking. For reference, the other characters who know this are The Doctor, Doc Brown, and the Cyberman.
  • Keet: Excitability is one of his defining characteristics.

  • Verbal Tic: If left idle, he'll mutter "spaceship" to himself.

Unikitty

Voiced by: Alison Brie
"Stay happy. Stay positive. Stay colourful!"

Princess Unikitty hails from Cloud Cuckooland, a wondrous land where there are no rules.

  • Cloud Cuckoolander: That's not a surprise, considering she is the princess of Cloud Cuckooland.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Unikitty was the first character (and up until Year 2, the only character) able to build (or destroy) with Rainbow bricks.
  • For Happiness: In her own words, to Bad Cop, she has skills. Skills she has spent a lifetime learning, all for making people happy.
  • Genki Girl: She's bursting with energy and is rather easy to excite.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: As her name suggests. On seeing her, Owen Grady will wonder if she's one of Ingen's creations.
  • Mood-Swinger: When Unikitty attacks, she shifts into her red Angry Kitty form, then back again as soon as the attack's done.
  • More Dakka: Her fully upgraded Cloud Cuckoo Car has the most firepower in the game. To the point that Superman compares it to himself.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She expresses regret after her Mega Kitty rampages.
    Unikitty: No, no, NO! This is no good...
  • Quest Giver: To find some instructions she scattered across the Adventure World in a fit of rage.

  • You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry: Just like in The LEGO Movie Videogame, Unikitty can focus her rage and transform into Mega Kitty.

  • Always Someone Better:
    • A sidequest reveals he feels this way about DC Comics Batman.
    • Gameplaywise, he's got all of regular Batman's abilities, and a few more.
  • Big Entrance: At least on consoles that take a while to read Batman's Toy Tag, then check if the player has the "Always Batman" Red Brick Extra activated, he'll emerge from a rift every time the player enters a new area or world.
  • Blatant Lies:
    • As he leads Robin through Arkham Asylum, he tells him the orderlies attacking them is actually a test, and he's paying them to do so.
    • On occasion, instead of throwing one batarang, he'll repeat his "first try" scene from The LEGO Movie, tossing several batarangs at a target until the last one actually hits.
  • Composite Character: Uses the Detective Vision and fighting style of the Arkham Asylum version of the character.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: He somehow does this by gorging on Lobster Thermadore.
  • Expy: This Batman is based on the DC Comics one, but lives in the LEGO Movie continuity. He doesn't get along with the actual DC Comics Batman.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: He cannot dive underwater and will die instantly if summoned while other characters are, but in one of the cutscenes in the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack he dives underwater just fine in order to defuse the Joker's bomb.
  • Guttural Growler: Even deeper than DC Comics Batman.
  • Mac Gyverring: He's capable of Master Building, being a Master Builder.
  • More Dakka: Unlike DC Comics Batman, he tends to toss dozens of Batarangs at a time.
  • One Steve Limit: Broken when he meets the Batman from the DC Comics dimension, and again when the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack shows him falling past the Batman and Robin from the 1966 Batman TV show.
  • Promoted to Playable: The Starter Pack Batman turns into this version of Batman when he enters the LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World and levels. A red brick extra can also allow him to remain as the playable Batman even outside his Adventure World.
  • Quantity vs. Quality: This Batman has no finesse in his Batarang tossing, so he makes up for it by tossing loads at once.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to DC Comics Batman's blue.
  • Required Party Member: In order to play the LEGO Batman Movie story pack, Batman's tag is required, and since being in the LEGO Batman Movie world turns Batman into LBM!Batman...
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud:
    • Says "Sigh" when approached as a Quest Giver in the LEGO Movie Adventure World's Old West area:
      "Hrmm. SIGH!"
    • Also exclaims either "Boom!" or "Kaboom!" when firing the Merch Gun.
  • Smug Super: He's very confident in himself, and his abilities.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: His reaction to seeing Superman, because he knows they're going to have an awkward conversation about their moms both being called Martha.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As the LEGO Batman Movie shows, he really likes lobster.

Mrs. Scratchenpost

  • Damsel in Distress: The Citizen-in-Peril for "Prime Time".
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: She has several cats, as her name might suggest. She sends the players on a fetch-quest to recover them all when they get scattered all over the place.

     Chima 
Based on Lego's original series Legends of Chima

Tropes applying to all three playable characters:

  • Out of Focus: None of them show up at any point during the main storyline. Making this worse, the Ghostbusters 2016 story pack has cameos from characters from every Year One franchise except them, including Jurassic World.

Cragger

Voiced by: John Gegenhuber
"It's time to croco-DIAL up the action!"

  • Cassandra Truth: On being removed from play, he might remark that no-one will believe him if he tells them about his adventures.
  • Eye Scream: One of his eyes has a nasty scar going over it.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Was originally a bad guy in his home series, although that was only thanks to his sister.
  • Mistaken Identity: In gameplay, Batman may mistake him for Killer Croc, one of his own foes. He himself will wonder why Batman looks so different from the bats he's used to, and will wonder if the non-anthropomorphic Scooby-Doo is a Legend Beast. Also, Sonic may mistake him for Vector.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: Averted. He is a crocodile, but he's one of the good guys.
  • No-Sell: He's immune to toxins.
  • Only in It for the Money: Or rather, the CHI (though he insists that he only wants his share).
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: As a crocodile person, Cragger can go underwater for prolonged periods with no ill-effect.
  • Super Strength: If his CHI-bar is full, Cragger can endow himself with super-strength.
