In LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game
Elrond appears in LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game in both his Second Age and Third Age variants. His Second Age variant is similar to the one that appears in 5000202 Elrond, except the lines on his face depicting his cheekbones are fainter, the lines depicting his sagging eyelids and chin are non-existent, and his torso and arms are cream instead of gold. He wields Hadhafang, can swing on poles and jump from tightropes, and has an elven jump. His Third Age variation is nearly identical in appearance to the one in 79006 The Council of Elrond, and has all the same abilities.
Elrond Half-elven, the son of the Man Eärendil and the Elf Elwing, was one of the mighty rulers of old that still remained in Middle-earth during the Third Age. He founded the refuge of Rivendell in the Valley of Imladris. He was the father of Arwen, Elladan, and Elrohir.
In the Second Age, he fought in the Last Alliance of Men and Elves, as the herald of king Gil-galad. After the One Ring was cut off of Sauron's finger, Elrond told Isildur to destroy the Ring. Not heeding Elrond's advice, Isildur took the Ring and left.
When Isildur was killed, the shards of Narsil, the broken sword of Elendil, were brought to Rivendell to be kept until reforged again.
Elrond cared for Aragorn, descendant of Isildur, like a son until he was grown to become King of Gondor. During this period he reluctantly watched Aragorn and Arwen fall in love.
During the events of the Third Age, Elrond housed the 'Council of Elrond' in Rivendell, formed the Fellowship of the Ring, gave helping guidance and council to the Fellowship, and brought Andúril to Aragorn. Elrond departed Middle-earth alongside Galadriel, Celeborn, Círdan the Shipwright, Gandalf, Bilbo Baggins, and Frodo Baggins for the Undying Lands at the very end of the Third Age.

Video Game Variants
- Although he was originally pictured with a long cape, his Second Age variant comes with a short one.
- During a cutscene in the video game where Elrond is looking at a manual to repair Frodo Baggins, an Agent Smith minifigure appears in the background. This easter egg is a reference to the character that Hugo Weaving (Elrond's actor) played in The Matrix films.
