Needs Wiki Magic Love


LEGO The Incredibles contains examples of:

  • 100% Adoration Rating: All the office workers at one point in the first level cheer Mr Incredible and Elastigirl on despite the former destroying their office.
  • Adaptation Expansion:
    • Mr Incredible and Buddy Pine fight Bomb Voyage in the level "The Golden Years", whose Mooks have hacked the security system and are trying to use it against them.
    • Mr. Incredible is joined by Frozone on his first mission on Nomanisan Island, and they fight Omnidroid v.8 together.
  • Adaptational Karma:
    • In the movie, the Underminer escapes with his haul of money and is never seen again. In the game, however, in his second Crime Wave, he presses his luck and tries to drill into City Hall, leading to him being arrested. He is, however, confident that he can escape from prison.

    • Bomb Voyage escapes in the first movie and is not seen again afterwards, having escaped with his loot from the robbery. In the game, however, he returns more than 15 years later, and his second crime wave sees him battle with the player’s character atop the DevTech building before ultimately getting locked away for good.
  • Ascended Extra: Several Supers that appeared in the first movie solely as extras or for Edna to reveal that they died in a cape-related accident or at the claws of an Omnidroid variant have more appearances in the game, such as Splashdown appearing in the Glory Days level and revealed to be able to summon water jets out of nowhere and uses them to put out a burning apartment, only to then flood it. Many of the aforementioned supers also sometimes appear in the background of various cutscenes. Blazestone, for example, makes an appearance in the final cutscene for the Incredibles 2 storyline, in which she appears in a courtroom to celebrate the declaration of Supers being made legal again.

  • Bait-and-Switch: During "The Golden Years", Mr Incredible is required to activate a very large machine to proceed. It unfolds into a tiny hammer which cracks a small part of the wall in front of it.
  • Bowdlerise:
    • In the first movie, Mr Incredible ends up in the bank Bomb Voyage is robbing by pure coincidence when he saves Oliver Sansweet trying to commit suicide. In the game, he and Elastigirl find out that Bomb Voyage is planning to rob the bank after realizing that his Mooks are trying to head there. They construct a ballista to launch Mr. Incredible to the bank to stop him.
    • The first movie's references to various superheroes' deaths by cape-related accidents are removed, turning whole "no capes" scene into a brief "No. Just... No" Reaction moment.
  • Call-Forward: Dialogue between Mr Incredible and Elastigirl in the first level when they see Frozone imply that he's single at this point. We hear his wife much later.
  • Car Fu: This is Lightning McQueen's mode of attack.
  • Cool Horse: Woody can summon and ride his loyal horse, Bullseye.
  • Destructive Saviour: The first level; 'The Golden Years' displays this, such as most of the walls of a floor of an office block being knocked down by Mr Incredible, an apartment flooded by Splashdown, and a TV aerial being toppled. No wonder they got into trouble!
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Several playable characters, have the power to shoot lasers of varying types, namely those from the eyes, like Gazer Beam and Jack-Jack can, or from the hands, such as Dyna Guy.
  • Gainax Ending: The conclusion of the Incredibles II section. Everything's wrapped up nicely and the family goes to see a movie. The film starts and... it turns out to be a trap from Screenslaver, successfully putting the entire family under hypnosis. The End. Then you can play the ''Incredibles I'' section.
  • Guest Fighter:
  • In a Single Bound: The giant characters, Sulley, Brick and The Anchor Man have the ability to hyper-jump, a Hub World-exclusive jump variation that allows them to launch themselves into the air by holding the jump button down.
  • Interface Spoiler: One achievement blatantly states that you need to finish an underwater race as Dory.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Sulley's design resembles his design in Disney Infinity.
    • During the level featuring the burning hotel, Lucius creates a bridge out of ice, referencing the Mr Incredible and Pals Show Within a Show. Additionally, a citizen mentions watching it and noting that Lucius doesn't look like Frozone from the show, a sly reference to Lucius' complaint during the commentary of said show which he states made him look like "a white guy".
    • During the first mission on Nomanisan Island, Mr. Incredible is joined by Frozone in fighting the Omnidroid. This is a reference to how Mirage was initially just following Lucius before she found out that Bob was Mr. Incredible. In this case, however, she targeted both of them.
  • Original Generation: Several characters created by TT Fusion and Pixar specifically for this game appear.
  • Permanently Missable Content: Averted: After completion of a Crime Wave, you can go to the prison and interact with a jailed supervillain to restart it again.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Syndrome, after his plan to kidnap Jack-Jack fails because he finds the baby's powers too much to handle, declares he's going into hiding. It's subverted, however, as he comes back as part of a crime wave in which he steals a large amount of electronics to power up a new Omnidroid with which he plans to take over the city.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Slippy-Slidey Ice World: During the Brainfreezer Crime Wave, the district is frozen over with ice and snow.
  • Spared by the Adaptation:
    • Gazerbeam among several other supers, which more or less confirms several fan theories that not all of the supers that participated in Operation Kronos were killed by the Omnnidroid. While Gazerbeam is made playable during Mr. Incredble's second visit on Nomanisan, the others appear in the background of various scenes and can be unlocked as playable characters.
    • Syndrome too, who simply decides to go into hiding after finding out that Jack-Jack was too much to handle, rather than getting sucked up in an exploding turbine like in the movie. He later gets arrested when his next plan involving a bunch of stolen electronics and a new robot catches the attention of the Incredibles yet again.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Mr. Incredible tries to keep Buddy Pine away from the action in his debut, despite the fact that he's required for the majority of the level.
  • Villains Out Shopping: During the first level on Nomanisan, Mr. Incredible and Frozone find the Omnidroid v.8 casually sipping tea while waiting for them.
