Lord Business, also known as President Business of the Octane company and the world, was the ruler of all the LEGO realms in The LEGO Movie. The people of these realms were once free to build whatever they wanted, until Lord Business thought that imagination of these builders was getting out of hand and he decided to block off all the realms and arrest all the master builders. When Emmet finds the piece of resistance, he is taken back to Lord Business' lair and questioned by Bad Cop about it.
Eventually Lord Business' plan is revealed. He was planning to use a stick of Krazy Glue, A.K.A the Kragle to freeze all the inhabitants of the realms and needs to use the power of the master builders to help him achieve this. In the end however Emmet managed to convince him that imagination is good and he changed his ways.
Lord Business is sent by Lord Vortech to The Simpsons World to take over Springfield and recover its foundation element, the Inanimate Carbon Rod that is in Homer Simpson's pocket. After he and his Micro Managers caputerd Homer he is confronted and defeated by Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf. However he escapes with the Carbon Rod and sents the trio with the asset.
He and the rest of Vortech's forces were seen with him on Foundation Prime when Vortech smashes the Thief for his failure in collecting the foundation element.
- He is voiced by Will Ferrell in The LEGO Movie (who also portrayed "The Man Upstairs", which Business is partially based on), Keith Ferguson in The LEGO Movie Videogame and Nolan North in LEGO Dimensions. Ferrell is also the only main cast member to not reprise his role from the film, though Bad Cop's dialogue is Archive Audio due to Liam Neeson being unavailable.
- It's unknown why he helps Lord Vortech, because Lord Business tries to restore order in any universe, while Lord Vortech tries to make chaos (though Vortech claims to rid chaos and create his version of "perfection", which Business also stood for). It's also confusing, considering his change of heart at the end of the movie. It could be possible that Lord Vortech must've taken the evil Lord Business from the past and find the foundation element of The Simpsons world. It's also possible that Lord Business was brainwashed.
- He is most likely given the Stud Shooter by Lord Vortech, as the Joker and Saruman are shown a pile of weapons when they first meet Vortech on Foundation Prime.
