Are There Enough Incredibles Characters For A LEGO Game?


The first large scale negative bit of feedback I am seeing almost immediately surrounding the new LEGO The Incredibles Video Game is the scale of the content & characters in the movies compared to the 300+ characters found inside a game like LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.

The concern is pretty valid, especially when we’ve grown use to these LEGO Games being built on either larger film franchises (Jurassic Park or Indiana Jones) or huge expanded universes (Star Wars, Marvel, DC).

LEGO Marvel 2’s 300+ Character Grid

So how many playable characters can there possibly be in a game based on two movies with relatively small casts? Lets break down some stuff we know about how LEGO games tend to operate, and lets also make a few new guesses.


LEGO The Incredibles Character Breakdown

First, lets just take a look at the amount of main & supporting characters in the credits for both The Incredibles 1 & 2:

  • The Incredibles – 22 Characters
  • The Incredibles 2 – 13 Characters (listed so far)

Then remember that every super character will have at least one alternate costume, their street clothes, and others will have even more with their vintage alternates, like Elastigirl & Mr. Incredible.

  • Example for Mr. Incredible:
    • Mr. Incredible (Vintage Blue)
    • Mr. Incredible 
    • Bob Parr (Work Suit)
    • Bob Parr (Home)

So with this in mind, lets bump up those numbers.. keeping in mind that we wont double dip for repeat characters in the sequel:

  • The Incredibles With Costume Variants – 50
  • The Incredibles 2 With Costume Variants – 25

Lets also not forget the incredible Edna Mode NO CAPES montage, and the many Supers that were ultimately taken down by Syndrome…

  • Additional Supers – 22

Now lets also take into account that the game will be introducing new crime lords and thugs. So lets assume:

  • 6 Crime Lords
  • 2 Thug Types for Each = 12

Lets also add in all the background townspeople / random new quest givers / etc.

  • Background / Random Characters – 10

Then there have already been some heavy handed hints at the potential of Pixar Easter Eggs to be dispersed through the game. This could very well mean some playable characters from other Pixar movies… maybe… so let’s just make a wild guess:

  • Secret Easter Egg Characters – 10

Now lets add all this up!

  • The Incredibles – 50
  • The Incredibles 2 – 25
  • Additional Supers – 14
  • Crime Lords & Villains – 18
  • Background – 10
  • Secret Characters – 10

Total Estimated Characters: 127 Playable Characters

Just from me casually guessing, this game can easily have well over 100 characters. I’d fully expect a game similar in size and scope to the LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game we got last year.

Check out a list of characters I am compiling below:

    Lots of options there to bulk up the character roster. Syndrome’s goons for one. Also the Underminer probably has various thugs or creatures of some kind in his underground lair.
    Also, we may very well see a decent amount of new supers now that they seem to be popular with the public again.

    • Daniel Becker

      Well, a only a portion of the existing Supers were killed by Syndrome.

      And Syndrome’s goons all looked identical, I imagine they have some various weapons.

    I had been wondering about this too, but based on your calculations it seems like there’s plenty of material for them to work with. I would even go so far as to say that a larger number of characters from other Pixar Films-though I think you’ve hit the most likely properties-are a possibility as well.
