Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Gargoyles is a rare breed of a show, particularly for The '90s (and even more so for a Disney series). A dark, violent Western cartoon with a story that follows deliberate arcs and does things very rarely seen in the average Western 'toon.The main characters of the series are gargoyles, large winged humanoids (their appearance was vaguely demonic, though saying so is insulting to them) that are extremely (almost literally) nocturnal — they turn to stone, no matter what, when the sun rises. Once, there were many gargoyles, but interactions with humanity have led to their species becoming endangered. The main characters survived a purge in the year 994 thanks to a magical spell that made them permanently statues — at least, unless the castle which they were protecting were to ever "rise above the clouds".Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })One thousand years later, it did. Billionaire David Xanatos (yes, that Xanatos) bought the ruined castle, then had it transported brick by brick from Scotland and rebuilt on top of his skyscraper in New York City. This action broke the curse for good, reviving the dormant gargoyles in a land and time far from their home. He didn't do it for altruistic motives, though; eventually, Xanatos and the clan of gargoyles became enemies. The clan manages to make an ally in New York detective Elisa Maza, however — and with her help, they work to protect their new home while simultaneously adapting to it.Gargoyles spans fantasy and science-fiction genres, and its plot would eventually involve magic, robots, The Illuminati, god-like fairies, numerous characters straight out of Shakespearean plays, and much more. In general, All Myths Are True in this show.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The show is also famous for the intricacy of its villains and plots. Very few are Card Carrying Villains; in particular, the charismatic and manipulative nature of Xanatos is why the Xanatos Gambit was named after him. Even the heroes are individuals with their own wants and desires that don't always lead to peaceful relationships.The initial incarnation of the show lasted two seasons and sixty-five episodes. It was followed by a retooled third season — Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles — but since Greg Weisman was only around to write the first episode of this season, a new team of writers completely new to the series ended up heading the rest of the season. As a result, the series underwent a drastic shift of tone; from a serialized, dark action series, into a more lighthearted, and at times, comedic romp. According to Weisman, this happened due to the show effectively being taken out of his hands by Disney higher-ups, in addition to tightening of schedules, and as such The Goliath Chronicles is not canon.The series was later resurrected in canonical comic book form in 2006, picking up with an alternate timeline after a comic-book retelling of the opening episode of The Goliath Chronicles before going on to weave an entirely new story; it also resulted in a spin-off title, Bad Guys. When the publisher, Slave Labor Graphics, was hit with higher licensing fees imposed by Disney, both books were cancelled. Greg Weisman has vowed to find a way to continue the story.The show and the universe it created still has an active online fanbase — including the creator. (Who apparently has read this site.)As a side note: in what became somewhat of an inside joke, many Star Trek actors, particularly those of The Next Generation, but including The Original Series, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, had at least cameo roles in the series. Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis played the primary villains Xanatos and Demona; Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, and Kate Mulgrew all played recurring roles; and the guest stars included Avery Brooks, Colm Meaney, LeVar Burton, and Nichelle Nichols.In the grand tradition of the internet, the show has its own Wiki.DVDs of the complete first and second seasons are available for sale, with the episodes uncensored. The complete series, including the non-canonical third season is available to stream on Amazon.com, and most recently as part of the all-encompassing streaming service Disney+. In addition, master horror film maker, Jordan Peele, has expressed interest in doing a film with the property and Weisman has raised the possibility of reviving the series on Disney+.

Card-Carrying Villain
 Gargoyles / int_137f2d7
comment
Card-Carrying Villain: Rare, but there are a few. Thailog is more or less aware of the fact he's a monster and a scary bastard... and he revels in it. Proteus is also intent on wreaking havoc on the New Olympus Island simply for the amusement of doing so, and the Quarrymen in The Goliath Chronicles pull traps on the Manhattan Clan, where either street thugs or themselves pretend to attack innocent women, acknowledging the Manhattan Clan's heroic and upstanding tendencies. Xanatos himself notably lampshades the trope, when he asks Goliath and Angela how well he's pulling off his first attempt at "clichéd villainy", in the episode "Cloud Fathers". In their one appearance in The Goliath Chronicles, Jackal & Hyena explicitly refer to the side they're on as evil.

Arbitrary Skepticism: Peter Maza utterly refuses to believe in his father's tradition and beliefs and that, for more than 40 years. When Coyote the Trickster start messing up Xanatos' Construction site, he still refuses to believe. It's only at the end of the episode that he does and finally reconcile posthumously with his father.

Instant Expert: Within a surprisingly short amount of time after awakening, Lexington becomes skilled enough with computers to qualify as the show's Hollywood Hacker. Not as "instant" as most IE's, but in real-life terms he's a very fast learner. The more dramatic version (apparently forced upon by Executive Meddling motivated by merchandise) is when Lexington repaired and modified a helicopter in the first season. That's right: Only one night for repairing an almost completely wrecked helicopter and even improving and "gargoyleing" its design! Also alluded to when Lex builds a motorcycle. Brooklyn asks him what took so long, since he rode one before, and Lexington snaps back, "You've ridden a horse before, does that mean you could build one from spare parts?"

 Gargoyles / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: Though the show itself generally didn't shy away from some dark elements, the comic continuation (and especially Bad Guys) gets away with quite a lot of graphic violence that would never have made it into the show, including Goliath getting stabbed in the stomach, a person committing suicide by hanging herself, Yama being impaled and Dingo's mother being strangled to death on-panel. (Also the occasional profanity.) The show also applies this trope for The Disney Afternoon. The block mainly consisted of lighthearted adventure shows and comedies, so Gargoyles came off as a bit of a surprise shocking turn for the lineup.

You Can't Thwart Stage One
 Gargoyles / int_15385326
comment
You Can't Thwart Stage One: The first few episodes of the second season were unqualified successes for Xanatos: He succeeded in getting Fox an early parole in "Leader of the Pack", he mutated Derek and turned him against the Manhattan Clan in "Metamorphosis", and he acquired the code for the deadliest computer virus in the world in "Legion". Only "Metamorphosis" counts as a Downer Ending, though, because the Manhattan Clan did score a few points against the Pack and the ghost of Iago, although none against Xanatos himself.

Evil vs. Evil: Xanatos, Demona, Macbeth, and the rest of the villains each have their own agenda, which results in this trope more often than not. Macbeth's initial goal, for example, is to kill Demona so that he can die. The Good, the Bad, and the Evil: Usually one of the villains is clearly more evil than the other. (Macbeth, Xanatos, Demona, Thailog.) It's not unknown for the gargoyles to get involved of their own accord, rather than be manipulated or attacked by another faction.

"It" Is Dehumanizing: Part one of "City of Stone" starts with the Manhattan Clan confronting a group of terrorists, who refer to Goliath as "it". An ironic example in the same episode, after the censors got their hands on it: apparently it's now taboo for anyone to actually use the word "terrorist" in a cartoon, so the censored episode cuts off some of the dialogue mid-sentence, with the resulting effect of Goliath and the Weird Sisters both referring to the criminal he'd just neutralized as simply... "this".

Not-So-Harmless Villain: Xanatos' assistant Owen Burnett seems like an uptight dweeb — but he's an immortal magical creature who lives to Punk humans. However, he is bound by his word and must remain in his present form and job for the duration. Eventually he becomes nearly as harmless as he appears due to Oberon's decree, which prevents him from using his magic offensively. It's also shown that he's a master martial artist in his own right, quite capable of asskicking and even holding his own against gargoyles on occasion.

 Gargoyles / int_17ce80aa
comment
All There in the Manual: Several bits of dialogue in the comic book continuation only make sense if you're familiar with the gargoyle lore Greg Weisman reveals on his blog. For instance, the London clan vaguely allude to the details of gargoyle reproduction (gargoyle females go into heat thrice in their lives; the Londoners don't explain this, only that they put females in enforced isolation during the third time for population control purposes), and Brooklyn name-drops but does not explain the "humility spell" (an ancient spell which causes gargoyles' clothing and other personal possessions to turn to stone along with their bodies).

Graceful Loser
 Gargoyles / int_191a3673
comment
Graceful Loser: Xanatos is one of the few villains who is not personally insulted when the "good guys" choose not to sit back and let their world be re-arranged to his satisfaction. He respects the gargoyles even when he wants to kill them (which isn't very often, as he generally considers it 'wasteful') and has enough of a sense of humor to laugh at himself. He also has such a willingness to see the upside of his defeats that you really have to pound him with multiple losses before he gets irritated with you. Of course, since he is the Trope Namer for the Xanatos Gambit, actual losses are relatively rare. It does happen now and then, but more often it just looks like a loss to other characters and in the denouement we find out that he got enough out of 'second place' to be content with that. This is only really averted in "Double Jeopardy," where his Thailog project resulted in the loss of $20,000,000, an oil rig, and his pet project - in return for which he gained a new and highly dangerous enemy: and "Cloud Fathers," where Xanatos not only loses, but (however calmly all things considered) expresses displeasure with "these minor upsets."

Gone Horribly Right: When Xanatos made Thailog, he wanted someone with Goliath's physical abilities and his own worldview and intelligence. He did not think this through! Lampshaded in a Shout-Out/Ironic Echo. For much of the series, it's heavily implied that Xanatos' behavior is as much for his own amusement as anything else, with him gleefully quoting Frankenstein while resurrecting Coldstone. After realizing how badly he miscalculated Thailog's creation, he does so again, more straight:

Teenage Mutant Samurai Wombats: The premise hits a lot of points for this trope; a group of gargoyles are awakened in New York City after being asleep for a thousand years, and they try to keep their existence a secret while making a human ally, Elisa Maza. Unlike most examples, however, it's acknowledged that the gargoyles can't stay a secret forever, and they gradually make the transition from complete secrecy to urban legends to becoming publicly known... and feared.

David vs. Goliath
 Gargoyles / int_1b3b48f3
comment
David vs. Goliath: In a literal sense (and inverted), with hero Goliath fighting David Xanatos. Played with to the extreme. Goliath really is the taller, stronger man, using brute strength to win fights. David is the shorter, smarter man, using his brains to conquer his foes. In the middle ages, brute strength and direct power ran supreme. However, in the modern age, in an age of computers, stocks, and science, the genius is the one with the power.

 Gargoyles / int_1cc2ea8d

Villain Ball: Played with in different ways with different villains. Xanatos averts it completely – one gets the sense that he goes over his plans with a fine-toothed comb to make certain he does not fall into it, and then has Owen double-check just to be sure. Demona has several moments where she shoots herself in the foot (metaphorically speaking), but this is somewhat implied to be unconscious self-sabotage on her part. The Archmage plays this completely straight, but it is justified because his massive ego and need to make his enemies squirm before killing them are pretty much his only weaknesses (especially after getting his hands on the Eye of Odin).

Motivational Lie: Xanatos used a whole series of these to get Derek Maza to work for him, to believe that it was Goliath's fault that Derek was mutated into the pseudo-gargoyle Talon, and then get Talon to remain loyal to him as a bodyguard who can potentially defeat Goliath. When Talon finally finds out the truth, he's pissed.

Papa Wolf: Goliath, plain and simple.

David Xanatos deserves mention also. He's willing to fight Oberon himself just to keep Oberon from taking his kid. That feat alone even caused Goliath to respect him.

Incest Is Relative: Gargoyles born into the same generation regard each other as siblings. However, almost all of them also find their mate within their generation, meaning you're mated for life to someone you used to call your sister. This is demonstrated when Iago propositions Desdemona, calling her "sister" as he does so.

Chekhov's Boomerang: The Grimorum Arcanorum, the Eye of Odin, and the Phoenix Gate. All three are important for an episode or two, all three are (separately) taken from Xanatos by Goliath, all three taken by the Weird Sisters and given to the Archmage, and two of them ( the Grimorum is destroyed) prove significant in later episodes before Goliath gets rid of them for one reason or another. Then the Phoenix Gate returns again in the comics.

comment
Aborted Arc: At the end of Deadly Force, Owen says that 37 of the stolen guns were missing, probably sold on the street. Originally, Greg meant to have Broadway seek out and destroy them all, but that idea never came to fruition. On the other hand, this does provide an explanation as to where the various criminals and villains get their Family-Friendly Firearms in future episodes. At the end of the episode Legion, Xanatos salvages the computer virus that nearly destroyed Coldstone, calling it the deadliest weapon he could ask for... and then never uses it or mentions it again. In the episode Kingdom, while Goliath and Elisa are on the Avalon World Tour, Xanatos tells the remaining Manhattan Clan that he'll utilize all his resources to track them down, whether or not they want his help. He never does this, though he does encounter them once during their tour. A two parter titled The Weird Macbeth was planned where the Weird Sisters would imprison the cast in the play of Macbeth. It was rejected on the grounds of being too strange. Reunion (A lost tale from the Avalon World Tour) from the SLG Comics was originally this. The story was intended for an issue of Gargoyles from when Marvel Comics had the license, but was unpublished due to the comic book's cancellation. The story itself lead into Coldstone's appearance at the beginning of Possession and why Angela seemed familiar with him (and not put off by his appearance). Nothing is done with Demona thinking Elisa is dead after "Long Way to Morning," and Demona simply sees her alive a few episodes later. Demona does mention in "City of Stone" that she thought she had gotten rid of Elisa long ago, though.

Curse Escape Clause
 Gargoyles / int_275773bd
comment
Curse Escape Clause: The gargoyle protagonists had been cursed to sleep as stone until their castle rose above the clouds. Xanatos broke the curse by relocating their castle on top of his skyscraper. In fact, several spells have similar riddle-like ways of breaking them, such as a spell that would turn people to stone "until the sky burns." Word of God said that it is an actual rule of magic in this universe; adding an escape clause is not required, but it makes the magic much easier to cast. Fair folk like Oberon and Puck are powerful enough they do not really need to worry about it, as is an incredibly powerful human sorcerer like the Archmage, but for someone like the Magus or Demona, being able to save on your energy is very important. It helps that the Curse Escape Clauses are worded rather vaguely, and thus open to loose interpretation. The Gargoyles' curse only said "the clouds" so Xanatos raising Castle Wyvern above the cumulus layer of clouds, but not the cirrus layer, is enough to do the job. Similarly, "until the sky burns" apparently does not necessarily mean the entire sky, so only burning the atmosphere above Manhattan is enough to cure even those hypothetical victims outside of the city from the "stone at night" curse.

Swiss Bank Account: Mentioned in the non-canon Goliath Chronicles season in the episode "Genesis Undone", where part of Dr. Anton Sevarius' ploy to inject Thailog with an advanced sample of the clone virus is to get him to agree to deliver a large sum of money to his Swiss account in exchange for the cure.

Bilingual Bonus
 Gargoyles / int_294ed981
comment
Bilingual Bonus: The various spells are in Latin, and actually say what they accomplish, and one episode actually includes correct Hebrew, both written and spoken. The "spell" in Hebrew, allowing a human to possess a golem, translates as something like "My soul should enter the body of earth". Some of the Latin spells are grammatically incorrect. "Omnes conspecti, omnes auditi" is translated in the show itself as "all who see this, all who hear this," but in reality it means "all who have been seen, all who have been heard." In other words, the passive voice was used when the active voice should've been. The Japanese gargoyle town is called Ishimura. . .which means "Stone Village." Very appropriate! Anyone who knows the French word for fox guessed pretty quickly that a couple minor characters from season one were vastly more significant than they appeared, and were likely related.

Beauty = Goodness / Dark Is Not Evil: Played with, and generally averted. The Gargoyles are demonic-looking creatures of the night, yet their moral principles are very important to them. Xanatos and the Pack are handsome action-hero types, but they're amoral at best. There are, of course, exceptions - Demona and Elisa right off the bat, with others following.

Ambiguously Jewish: In "Golem", which features an accurate retelling of the story of the Golem of Prague and both written and spoken Hebrew, nobody mentions the words "Jew," "Judaism," or "Jewish" even once. Instead, they refer to "our people" and "our community," never actually identifying their people by name. Also, no one wears a yarmulke or any sort of head covering at any point in the story, even when conducting Jewish rituals

Psycho Electric Eel: Sevarius uses these to augment his mutates' energy regenerating properties as well as afford them electrical attacks... or so he claimed in front of Derek Maza. Given that he faked his own death with them and Xanatos was in on the whole operation, he had to be at least smart enough to know that their actual electrical output is fairly minimal and was just counting on Derek and Goliath to be holding the Idiot Ball at the time.

Sadly Mythtaken: Some myths were dead-on accurate, and some changes were obviously made for the sake of the story, but some referenced myths bear little resemblance to the originals. This may be a result of the time limits imposed on the writers for each episode and comic issue. Cuchullain in the "Hound of Ulster" episode is painfully inaccurate... this page goes over it pretty well, actually.

Eternal English: The gargoyles have no trouble with the language after they are revived. Nor do Katherine, Tom, the Magus, or any of their gargoyle charges, although that one might be slightly justified as Tom had been taking trips to the real world every 100 real-world years and could have picked up the gradual changes from Old to Middle to Modern English. Say nothing of King Arthur, who was put to sleep sometime around 547AD according to the comic book, and yet speaks perfectly when woken up. No explanation is given on why New Olympians speak English instead of ancient Greek. Does Grandmother Willow live on that island? Trips made via Avalon, at least, included a nifty language module with free installation. That was how the 'World Tour' guys managed in Japan and Guatemala etc. As for why the gargoyles speak English? A wizard did it. For that matter, if Goliath's clan comes from Scotland, how come Hudson's the only one with a Scottish accent? Because Hudson had the most contact with humans

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
 Gargoyles / int_30d2ae29
comment
Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Macbeth might never have achieved his destiny of becoming "King of Scotland and father of the king hereafter" if Duncan hadn't done everything he could to prevent Macbeth from becoming king. In 975, Demona had an encounter with her future self, who told her about the Wyvern Massacre and the sleeping spell on Goliath, and also told her "I am what you will become!" Past Demona did everything she could to prevent the Wyvern Massacre and the sleeping spell, and to avoid becoming a bitter, vengeful terrorist, with predictable results. It doesn't help that 1995 Demona leaves out the details leading up to the Massacre (particularly her bargain with The Captain).

Color Me Black: Fantastic Racism variant- in one episode Demona summons and binds Puck and forces him to grant her various wishes, which he delights in twisting because he doesn't like her. One of her wishes is to be able to move about freely during the day, when gargoyles normally turn to stone- which Puck grants by causing her to turn human during the day instead. For those uninitiated with the series, Demona craves the extinction of all humanity.

Logic Bomb: In Temptation, near the end of the episode Goliath is still under the spell Demona casts on him that forces him to obey anyone who holds the spell. Elisa manages to undo it by ordering him to live for the rest of his life exactly as he would as if he was not under a spell. Whether it was that this instruction was followed or that the cyclic logic breaks the effect, Goliath is restored to normalnote Probably the effect was broken, as his eyes would have continued glowing if he were still under the spell, even if he behaved normally.

This is also inherent in the rules of (human) magic: You need to be able to see and hear a spell being cast for it to affect you directly, so those who are unable to see and/or hear have greater resistance to magic than most. Jeffrey Robbins demonstrates this most clearly in "City of Stone." It is possible to override this resistance through an Amplifier Artifact or Avalonian magic, as the Roman Magus and Puck demonstrate in the Backstory and "The Mirror" respectively, though.

Humans Are Flawed
 Gargoyles / int_32e279c4
comment
Humans Are Flawed: This is how the show portrays the human race. Yeah, there are a lot of humans who are bastards to each other and other races, and some of them are actually prominent villains, but a lot of them turn to the good side, and there are plenty of human characters like Tom, Elisa Maza, and Jeffrey Robbins, who are heroic characters that make quick friends to the gargoyles. Demona believes all Humans Are Bastards, and she is determined to convince the Manhattan Clan to join her in her goals to wipe out the race, but the fact she's an insane megalomaniac who basically started the humans versus gargoyles conflict in the first place only proves to once again discredit the belief that humanity is evil. To put it shortly, humans aren't inherently any better or any worse than the world's other sentient species, they're just the most common.

Extra-Strength Masquerade: Sometimes the Muggles seem determined to ignore all possible evidence of the supernatural. Most notable in City of Stone, in which every television-viewing citizen of New York is petrified for two nights running, but any evidence (such as security footage, shattered remains of those who died in that time, or eyewitness testimony from folks who weren't subjected to it) is apparently dismissed. Or, at least, any investigations that took place did so offscreen.

Not Worth Killing: Gillecomgain seemed to have this attitude towards Macbeth in 1020, as he seemed pretty nonchalant in informing Duncan that Macbeth still lived. (In 1032, Gillecomgain had more serious reasons for not killing Macbeth.) Canmore definitely had this attitude towards Gruoch. And when Xanatos had the Manhattan Clan cornered in "The Edge" and could have had them all wiped out, he instead let them flee.

Out of Order: Season two of Gargoyles had 52 episodes, making it impossible to tell which would be ready on time. Hence, given the show's very tight continuity, the episodes had to be split into various "blocks" where episodes could be aired in any order within each block. Though they did still run into a problem with Owen's stone arm, as two episodes intended to air before it happened ended up being delayed.

Kick the Dog
 Gargoyles / int_34dcfc96
comment
Kick the Dog: It was not enough for Oberon to go after everyone because he is a megalomaniac. No, he is going after everyone because he wants to kidnap a newborn infant. And he put all the humans in New York asleep, likely killing hundreds of innocent people as their cars crashed. Xanatos, in "Metamorphosis", after intentionally irreversibly changing Elisa's little brother Derek into a mutate, and cleverly framing Goliath and his clan for doing so. Then in "The Cage", when Derek learns the truth, Xanatos also goes the extra mile to twist that knife just a little bit harder by adding, "he's [Sevarius] the doctor. You're just the experiment." From Weisman's ramble on "City of Stone" there's a rather amusing side-note on the use of this trope for Gillecomgain: In the same episode, Demona had cast a spell all over Manhattan that resulted in all humans who've heard it to turn to stone at night, which she then proceeds to shatter as many as she could with extreme prejudice. Killing people is bad enough, but killing people who are utterly helpless, who couldn't see, move, or even realize they're being killed, is just crossing the line.

Stable Time Loop
 Gargoyles / int_37690091
comment
Stable Time Loop: The explanation for Xanatos' fortune is that he went back to the ancient past to acquire a (by modern day standards) priceless coin, then arranged for it to eventually be sent to himself, so that his younger self could use it to build his fortune. Thus proving to his father his claim of being a self-made man. Everything regarding the Phoenix Gate implies a stable time loop, as Goliath learns if someone time travels it is simply the natural way history was supposed to unfold. He even states several times that You Can't Fight Fate. Word of God has it that all time travel works this way. Brooklyn involves himself in a spectacular one in the Time Dancer series. Along with Owen/Puck, Brooklyn arranges for the alliance between Xanatos and Demona to take place, leading to Castle Wyvern being moved to the top of the Eyrie Building. That makes Brooklyn responsible for the entire series, as a result of his time travel.

comment
Squishy Wizard: Played straight with the Magus and the Archmage. In fact, the Magus is specifically noted for not being strong enough to wield a sword. Averted with Demona and Macbeth. And the Archmage wasn't so squishy when he had the Eye of Odin, either. (Once Goliath seized it from him, though...)

Poorly Disguised Pilot
 Gargoyles / int_38b05ae7
comment
Poorly Disguised Pilot: according to series co-creator Greg Weisman, King Arthur, the New Olympians, and several other characters introduced in the "World Tour" arc were meant to be used in spinoff series. There was also "Sentinel", which was meant to be a lead-in to the proposed Gargoyles: 2198 spin-off. It introduced the interstellar war between Nokkar's people and the Space Spawn, which Word of God says that series would have been about. Since the spin-off never came to fruition, the war was never mentioned again, creating a rather jarring Out-of-Genre Experience.

Batman Gambit
 Gargoyles / int_38d02d44
comment
Batman Gambit: Demona tries this twice against Elisa and the Manhattan Clan, first in "Long Way to Morning" and then in "High Noon." They both fail. Xanatos himself uses these on a regular basis, often as part of his gambits Macbeth tries to use one in Enter Macbeth against Demona. He captures the rest of the Gargoyles, expecting her to come to their rescue. Goliath pointed out that she basically hated her former clan right now and wouldn't be coming, enraging Macbeth. Duncan used one to play Macbeth and Gillecomgain against each other in "City of Stone," hoping that Gillecomgain would end up killing Macbeth. It didn't work. Angela pulls a combination of this and Stop, or I Shoot Myself! on Goliath during "Eye of the Storm" to convince him to take off the Eye of Odin. Being the Papa Wolf Goliath has become to her, it worked.

Actor Allusion: Elisa's alias in "Turf" was "Salli", which is her voice actress's name. Also, an Irish teenager says (about Bronx) that there's more than meets the eye. Bronx is voiced by Frank Welker, who also voiced Megatron in The Transformers (among many other roles).

Character Development
 Gargoyles / int_3b113b7
comment
Character Development: Characters repeatedly realize the consequences of their actions and grow from experiences: Broadway grows from being a gluttonous illiterate goof to a studious amateur detective. And don't forget the aforementioned episodes about firearms. Brooklyn grows from a simple hotshot kid to a capable, if romantically frustrated, leader with a flair for tactics. There is a lot of subtle character development with Goliath and Elisa as they slowly become closer. Hudson learns to age gracefully and appreciate his golden years. Xanatos and Fox learn to love and not be quite so evil, and that you probably shouldn't betray valuable allies for short-term gain. And Lexington becomes less naive (and more paranoid, unfortunately). Hey, not all development is for the good guys! At any rate, a lot of the development was also tied into various episodes and arcs rather than the usual route of being standalone episodes designed solely for development. Hudson and Xanatos have quite the conversation about getting old during one of his (relatively) smaller plots... which changes -both- of them. Several minor supporting characters also get notable changes, like Derek Maza and Tom and Mary. Goliath goes through some interesting character development from the Avalon World Tour as well. For example, back in "City of Stone" he said "Death is never the answer; life is!" But when the Emir took this statement to its logical conclusion in "Grief," and his imprisonment of Anubis meant that nobody could die (and if death really never is the answer, is that a bad thing?) Goliath realized that preventing anyone from dying is just as bad as killing them, and he fought to break the binding spell and free Anubis.

Blessed With Suck: Gargoyles are stronger than humans, have better senses, and can glide, scale walls, and heal while they sleep. But they need to spend twelve hours a day completely immobile, which sucks if, for example, you have to share the planet with a species that hates you and has access to iron tools.

Every Car Is a Pinto: In the third episode, a motorcycle crashes into a wall and promptly explodes. In "Temptation", Brooklyn's bike violently explodes from a single bullet. Averted in "Turf," where a gunfight breaks out in a mob chop shop, but not a single car explodes. Oddly, though, a leather seat sitting off on its own takes a stray bullet and it explodes.

Secret Test of Character
 Gargoyles / int_3f7a958b

Secret Test of Character: In "Revelations," the Illuminati administer a "loyalty test" on Matt Bluestone: an assignment to bring a gargoyle to the Hotel Cabal. Matt brought a gargoyle there and subsequently helped him escape, condemning a senior Illuminatus to a Fate Worse than Death in the process. Needless to say, Matt demonstrated that he was not loyal to the Illuminati. In fact, the Illuminati weren't testing Matt's loyalty at all; they were testing his cunning and treachery. Needless to say, Matt passed the test and was inducted into the Illuminati.

Manipulative Bastard: Xanatos and Thailog are the obvious examples. Demona has a manipulative streak as well, but tends to shoot herself in the foot (metaphorically speaking) at inconvenient moments. Lexington in "Future Tense." Basically engineering the destruction of nearly his entire clan and all major allies and enslaving New York using a digital doppelganger of Xanatos eliminated all sympathy he'd have naturally engendered in his current state. BTW, "Was it a dream or a prophecy?" How big a mindjob is that!?

Honor Before Reason: In his introductory episode, Macbeth chooses to wait patiently for the gargoyles to wake up rather than just stealing their statues while they're asleep, despite knowing this will lead to a difficult fight. He similarly refuses to smash them in "High Noon." The title is even a Call-Back; in his intro in "Enter Macbeth" Elisa warns of just that: "What if the next freak-job Xanatos hires comes here with a sledge-hammer at High Noon?"

Love Dodecahedron
 Gargoyles / int_4523420b
comment
Love Dodecahedron: Goliath was initially mated to Demona. After the Massacre and the curse on Goliath, Demona left Castle Wyvern, hooked up with Macbeth and became Synchronized with him. (Macbeth, by the way, had married his childhood sweetheart Gruoch, who was once married to Gillecomgain and may have had his baby.) Then, some 975 years later, Goliath was de-cursed and made friends with Elisa. They realize there's something more between them in Season 2, but elect not to pursue it until the very last episode, Goliath discovers that he and Demona had Angela, Thailog hooks up with Demona who's trying to lure Macbeth into marriage while Thailog's made a clone of Demona and Elisa named Delilah and then in "Hunter's Moon," Elisa gets a crush on Jason Canmore but realizes she can't be with him or Goliath...are you writing this down? It gets even more complicated in the comics. Elisa realizes that she and Goliath won't do many of the things other couples take for granted, including have kids. She breaks up with him and takes her coworker Officer Morgan to Xanatos' Halloween party, and Goliath takes Delilah (whom Brooklyn has a mild crush on). Thailog returns to reclaim the other clones and collect DNA samples from the Manhattan Clan, Morgan realizes Elisa's not ready to date other people and bows out gracefully, Delilah calls out Thailog and a wounded Goliath for using her and decides to make her own way, Goliath and Elisa reconcile and confess their love, and Brooklyn turns to see Delilah getting cozy with his own clone, Malibu. "You gotta be kidding me," indeed! For metahumor, Elisa and Delilah are both voiced by Salli Richardson Whitfield, and Goliath, Thailog, and Officer Morgan are all voiced by Keith David.

Completely justified since the Canmores attack Angela and Goliath spent the whole night watching helplessly as his daughter tried to survive till daylight and is planning on going Papa Wolf on them.note Which is quite similar to Macbeth's motive for killing Gillecomgain, and equally ineffective in settling the score it was meant to settle.

Paper-Thin Disguise

Paper-Thin Disguise: Gillecomgain's mask was a case of this, according to the DVD commentary: The red stripes on the mask perfectly matched the scars on Gillecomgain's face. On the other hand, Constantine had already worn the Hunter's Facepaint (Mask) by that point. Macbeth's mask inverted the trope: Demona recognized him as soon as the first shot was fired, though the audience might not have known enough about Macbeth and Demona to make the connection as quickly as Demona did. The shadowy gargoyle with glowing red eyes in "Temptation." Is there anyone who didn't immediately realize that it was Demona?

Note that Xanatos Gambits are not exclusive to Xanatos; the Weird Sisters, for example, pull one off in "High Noon". They brainwashed Macbeth and Demona into fighting the New York clan. Their real goal was distraction so they could steal magical items. If Macbeth and Demona won, however, that would be an additional bonus.

It's Always Spring: Averted. Episodes "Her Brother's Keeper," "Reawakening," and "The Price" have it snow in New York, and they're not Christmas episodes. However, these are the only snow days we see in the Big Apple. It's hard to judge with everything playing out at night, but the regular storms and long nights suggest it's perhaps closer to always autumn instead. A show about monsters has to find some way to keep the atmosphere dark...

Downer Ending: In addition to (possibly) the above example, we also have "Metamorphosis" and "Vows". "City of Stone" nudges close to this with Demona, and "Grief" can at best be said to end just narrowly shy of breaking even.

Trap Is the Only Option: In the episode "Long Way to Morning", Demona poisons Elisa and taunts her with the antidote, but Elisa's badge had blocked the poison dart so she's actually fine. Goliath and Hudson chase after the antidote anyway, knowing full well it's a trap, because if they don't it will tip Demona off that her plan failed, and she'll come after Elisa again.

Book-Ends: The first and last episodes of the Avalon World Tour, "Shadows of the Past" and "Future Tense", both show Goliath returning to what he believes to be his home, and being subjected to nightmarish visions. And in both of them, the beings who subject him to those visions slip up, and Goliath realizes just in time that his visions aren't real.

Cybernetics Eat Your Soul
 Gargoyles / int_533bc7ae
comment
Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Hyena and Jackal get more Ax-Crazy than they already were after they become cyborgs. Contrast Dingo, who refused to alter his body via implants and who eventually did a Heel–Face Turn. Though Hyena was willing to kill her long-time, er, friend equivalent and leader just because the latter stopped Hyena from killing a prison guard before the cybernetic upgrades, so at least in her case, the rising insanity may be entirely unrelated to the bodywork. It may simply have made it easier to inflict pain (probably the whole reason they got the upgrade) so they have even less restraint. Jackal seems to think they're unrelated. When Hyena shows an interest in mecha-Coyote, Jackal's comment is of mild disgust, but absolutely no surprise. Halcyon Renard had a similar experience with the Golem, though he wasn't really in a cybernetic body, and if anything, he was simply playing around and causing amusing destruction in the body of the Golem. Also, the more Coyote gets upgraded, the less humanlike his frame gets. Then again, he/it was never a human to begin with, and probably never had a soul to eat. Then again, Anubis had dominion over Coyote, too, implying Coyote was alive in some sense. "Grief" implies that Anubis' powers hold over the passage of time on subjects organic or otherwise; note how his energy reduced a city in the distance to ruin, complete with dilapidated buildings. And partially averted with Coldstone, as the insanity was due to an evil Third Wheel battling for control inside. Then the series turns right back around and plays it straight again with Future Lex.

Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress: The gargoyles cannot actually fly, they glide. Nevertheless, they do things that hurt the laws of physics. There are also examples of Soft Water in "Mark of the Panther" and "Hunter's Moon," and at least one example of Not the Fall That Kills You in "Awakening."

If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Played with: Elisa warns Goliath that he will be just like Demona if he kills Xanatos. Nobody said that the Canmores who tried so hard to kill Demona had become just like Demona herself, but it wasn't necessary; Jon Canmore's Call-Back at the end of "Hunter's Moon" made it pretty obvious. ("What have I... What have THEY done to you?" Demona first said those exact same words in "City of Stone.")

Orphaned Etymology
 Gargoyles / int_568b9d5
comment
Orphaned Etymology: A few examples in the flashbacks. In Awakening, Part One, in a flashback to 994, Hakon commands his catapult crew to "Fire!" The use of "fire" in the sense of discharging a projectile dates to the 1520s and specifically refers to discharging firearms, not catapults. In City of Stone, Part Three, during a flashback to 1040, Macbeth uses "bedlams" (c. 1660) to describe the Weird Sisters, and "demon" (c. 1200) to describe how a certain Gargoyle fights. The Magus in 994 and Duncan in 1032 also describe the Captain and Gillecomgain, respectively, as a "blackguard" (c.1530).

Enemy Mine: Goliath and the Clan would sometimes have to work with known enemies to deal with a bigger threat, usually with Xanatos since he's the lesser of all the evils. In "Eye of the Beholder" Goliath works with Xanatos to take down Fox who was mutated into a beast by the Eye of Odin. In the "City of Stone" arc, Goliath and Clan work with Xanatos to take down Demona and lift the stone spell she put on the whole city. In "Double Jeopardy", Goliath and Elisa had to work with Xanatos and Sevarius to beat Thailog. In "Walkabout", Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx had to work with Fox and Dingo to deal with the Matrix. In "The Gathering" arc, the Clan had to work with Xanatos and Fox to repel Oberon.

Police Are Useless: Averted for the most part, seeing how a few major characters are part of the police force and they're shown to do their job well enough, but on New Olympus this is in full effect, with the police chief, Taurus, being a bigoted Jerkass who arrests Elisa after a mob starts attacking her unprovoked. Despite the fact that the only thing she even did in that fight was dodge a single punch.

 Gargoyles / int_5b6e57e

Required Secondary Powers: Sevarius theorized (and Word of God confirmed) that the Gargoyles daytime stone dormant state must have a solar or thermal energy collection function because they would otherwise have to eat the equivalent of three cows a day to stay active. In addition, Word of God is that the Gargoyles were subject to a "Modesty spell" in Roman times that enabled their clothes and regular personal items to turn to stone with their bodies so they would not be destroyed when the Gargoyles awaken.

Disney Villain Death
 Gargoyles / int_5bdcc85a
comment
Disney Villain Death Played straight the first time with the Archmage, but later averted by the same character, whose future self very visibly melted on-camera when he could no longer control the power of the Grimorum inside himself. Downplayed with Duncan. When Macbeth tosses Selene's Orb at Duncan, it blows out his eyes and mouth, and sets him on fire...and then he falls off a cliff. Was absolutely hilariously lampshaded by the crew during the commentary...with very nearly the same words! Also played straight in the pilot with Hakon and the traitorous captain, though the typical intention of keeping the hero from being responsible for the villain's death is subverted: Goliath immediately expresses his outrage that he did not get to kill them himself, bellowing, "I've been denied everything... EVEN MY REVENGE!" Sevarius just laughs at this trope.

See Barehanded Blade Block above. In the first scene in the first episode, Goliath catches a sword, and there's a trickle of blood. This reveals important things about both gargoyles in general and Goliath in particular: they aren't quite invincible, which means that combat and leadership require carefulness and genuine bravery just like for humans, but they're still really tough.

The Jailer
 Gargoyles / int_5d464a53

The Jailer: One episode turns Goliath into this when he uses The Eye of Odin to become a Physical God. The best way to "protect his friends" is to seal them in a cave for the rest of time. Nothing can get to them there. Apparently Goliath either forgot about basic ecology during his perusal of Xanatos' library, or he simply just does not consider deep dark squiggly things in caves as worrisome as wars that may never happen anyway (as he could have always simply prevented them in other ways...)

One Myth to Explain Them All
 Gargoyles / int_5d6a98a

One Myth to Explain Them All: All of the Pagan gods of yore (yes, all of them) were various Children of Oberon, as perceived by primitive humans. That includes the gods of Ancient Egypt and Scandinavia, and the fairies of English folklore. The New Olympians were the origin of a lot of Greek mythology, although Word of God says that they were created by Children of Oberon breeding with humans.

Clarke's Third Law
 Gargoyles / int_5e7eb915
comment
Clarke's Third Law: The characters from the Middle Ages often describe modern technology in terms of magic, or have it described to them in the same way. Examples: When (the gargoyle who would eventually take the name) Hudson first sees a gun, he says "We must be battling sorcerers!" When Xanatos asks Goliath to retrieve some "disks" from Cyberbiotics, he describes them as "magic talismans, each containing hundreds of spells" and the necessity of breaking the encryption codes on those disks as "translating the spells." When Tom tells Goliath and Elisa about his battles with Demona and Macbeth on Avalon, he describes their guns as "magic weapons." Lexington is the only one who averts it. Having always been fascinated by machines of any kind, he easily notices that modern contraptions such as helicopters are indeed machines.

Heroic Sacrifice
 Gargoyles / int_6439de78
comment
Heroic Sacrifice: In the comics, there was a nameless female gargoyle who was listed as "Sacrifice" in the script because she took a barrage of arrows to save her mate's life. The Magus exhausts himself to death in order to protect the Avalon Clan from the Weird Sisters. In the flashback during the episode "City Of Stone" Macbeth is "killed" by Canmore, and after he comes back to life due to his magical link with Demona, his wife Gruoch tells him that his son Luach has been crowned king in his place and that his supporters in the current war would be shocked to see their supposed dead king back among the living. Gruoch then tells Macbeth that he must disappear and leave Scotland forever in order for his son to win the war. Macbeth sadly agrees, and right before he does he says to her "I will always love you." If leaving your family and country for the greater good doesn't count for this trope, I don't know what does. The Tear Jerker is even worse if you know what happens to Gruoch after Macbeth leaves. According to Greg Weisman, after Canmore had defeated Luach, Gruoch returns home to see that her son and father had both died in battle. Out of grief for losing her entire family, like many Shakespearean characters, she tragically commits suicide and dies a broken woman.

But for Me, It Was Tuesday
 Gargoyles / int_648fe274
comment
But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Demona truly has no idea why that guy(s) with the striped mask want(s) her dead. Not that she would care much if she did know. In a deleted scene of the finale, it's revealed that even the modern day Hunters do not know how the feud began. They just know that it's their destiny to hunt and kill gargoyles. Subverted with Macbeth when Canmore waylays him. At first Macbeth doesn't recognize the full-grown prince (since he was only a boy when Macbeth banished him to England), but after he introduces himself as Canmore, Macbeth does remember him. Played straight with the identity of the Hunter in City of Stone, as Demona'd not seen one in decades, and had thought she ended the line. It was a trick by Macbeth, as he knew Demona'd never suspect it was him under the mask. While he's perfectly willing to kill Demona to end their curse, she normally wouldn't reciprocate.

Author Appeal: Weisman is a self-described Shakespeare nut (emphasis on "nut"). Hence Puck, Macbeth, the Weird Sisters, Titania, Oberon... At no time, however, does he simply play these characters straight. Puck's nature is balanced by Owen, Macbeth has more in common with his historical than literary namesake, the Weird Sisters are utterly inscrutable rather than necessarily evil though Word of God implies they may be the series' true Big Bad, and Titania and Oberon have reversed their traditional roles, with Oberon being vastly more powerful between the two. Even the implied Othello/Coldstone connection is subverted. Also redheads since Everyone Wants Redheads.

Justice by Other Legal Means: In the first story arc, Xanatos nearly gets the Gargoyles killed several times over by hiring a mercenary squad to attack them, building a force of killer winged robots that level half of their castle, and manipulating them into breaking into a rival corporation's facilities. In the end, he gets sent to prison (for only six months, at that) for "Receiving Stolen Goods" after he's found with the technology that he had the Gargoyles steal. Receiving stolen goods is also the crime that Goliath made sure that Dracon would get arrested for at the end of "Deadly Force". Presumably Dracon's sentence was equally light, as it wasn't even commented on in his next appearance in "The Silver Falcon".

Dub-Induced Plot Hole: (Spanish) Latin American dubbers didn't take into account that the gargoyles didn't have names in the past. It is mentioned in the first episodes, but afterwards you seem them using those names during the flashbacks of Scotland. Also, the first time the gang saw Demona in Manhattan, she is called by that name (Demona), even when five minutes later she receives the dialogue "Humans have given me a new name. It's Demona!".

Unstoppable Rage
 Gargoyles / int_6b983bf7
comment
Demona again, after the Wyvern massacre. She noticed the Magus and Katherine taking the Gargoyles eggs. You think Demona would have being enraged and attacked the humans for stealing her children, especially those two particular gargoyles-haters. Instead, it's too much for her to handle emotionally and she let them leave with the eggs.

Meaningful Name
 Gargoyles / int_6bda9a30
comment
Meaningful Name: Goliath, a proud warrior who fights his foes honorably, has a nemesis named "David" who manipulates his enemies through careful strategy. One can see the irony there... Though supposedly chosen at random, a few of the Gargoyles' New York-themed names reflect their personalities. Broadway, named after New York's theater district, is big, brash, and obsessed with entertainment. And, well, the guy is wide. Brooklyn, named after a working-class borough with a reputation for grittiness, is the cool, tough-talking member of the team. Lexington, named after one of the busiest streets in downtown Manhattan, is the smart, savvy one—and he eventually becomes a businessman. Hudson, named after the ancient river that flows through the city, is old and patient. Angela and Demona, the former is angelic in nature and the latter demonic to the core. Hard to believe they're related. More than that: Goliath originally called Demona his "Angel of the Night." Demona's name literally reflects the fact that she's fallen from grace, into her own personal Hell (although the real reason she was named Demona is because "[[You fight like a demon!]]" and the humans who gave her that name didn't know about her history or her fall from grace). Dracon's second-in-command is called Glasses and he wears..., well, glasses.

In the flashback during the episode "City Of Stone" Macbeth is "killed" by Canmore, and after he comes back to life due to his magical link with Demona, his wife Gruoch tells him that his son Luach has been crowned king in his place and that his supporters in the current war would be shocked to see their supposed dead king back among the living. Gruoch then tells Macbeth that he must disappear and leave Scotland forever in order for his son to win the war. Macbeth sadly agrees, and right before he does he says to her "I will always love you." If leaving your family and country for the greater good doesn't count for this trope, I don't know what does. The Tear Jerker is even worse if you know what happens to Gruoch after Macbeth leaves. According to Greg Weisman, after Canmore had defeated Luach, Gruoch returns home to see that her son and father had both died in battle. Out of grief for losing her entire family, like many Shakespearean characters, she tragically commits suicide and dies a broken woman.

But Not Too Foreign
 Gargoyles / int_6f66bef7
comment
But Not Too Foreign: The protagonists in the Castle Wyvern clan all hail from Scotland, but only one of them (Hudson) actually speaks with a Scottish accent. The rest of them speak with American accents, even before they make the move to Manhattan. It might be noted that none of them would've even spoken English—in the tenth century, Scotland was a patchwork of languages, and they would spoken an archaic dialect of either Gaelic (most probable), Pictish or Cumbrian, depending on where they were, with Goliath probably knowing some Latin, since he reads. Even in England at the time, they spoke Old English, which is completely incomprehensible to a speaker of the modern tongue.

And the Adventure Continues
 Gargoyles / int_716c0b1b
comment
And the Adventure Continues: The finale of season 2 (which is largely considered the canonical end of the series due to The Goliath Chronicles being officially non-canon) ends this way, with Demona and a new Hunter still out there hunting each other, and the Manhattan clan returning to their former home. Brooklyn references the trope explicitly, "So begins Gargoyles Chapter 2... or is it 3? I've lost count." The end of the SLG comic book series where the Clan just doubled in population, suggesting a bright future, and the whole gang takes off to do some villain butt kicking.

Idiot Ball
 Gargoyles / int_7286e96d

Idiot Ball: In a Season 2 Very Special Episode, Hudson manages to track down Macbeth and the Scrolls of Merlin after Macbeth introduces himself to Hudson's blind author friend Robbins as Lennox MacDuff. This alias is uncovered when Robbins realizes that Lennox and MacDuff are two characters from the Shakespeare play "Macbeth". He then tracks down Macbeth by looking up his alias in the phone book. "MacDuff" is apparently a Professor well known enough to be invited to a televised debate on gargoyles during the only canon episode of The Goliath Chronicles. "I'm a brilliant criminal mastermind who runs intellectual circles around all my enemies. What am I going to do? I'm going to make someone who's just as clever and selfish as me but with the super-strength of a gargoyle!" Keep in mind what Xanatos's main redeeming quality is- he's loyal to his family. Gargoyles are implied to be pretty much hardwired to be loyal to whoever they consider to be their clan. Xanatos probably figured that someone who combined traits from him and Goliath would therefore be quite loyal to his creators, even if he was selfish and ambitious otherwise. Unfortunately for him, Thailog got most of his fathers' bad qualities (Goliath's temper and vengefulness, Xanatos's amorality and ambition) without their good ones (Goliath's strong sense of honor and morality, Xanatos's aforementioned familial loyalty). Also note that it puts him off the "personal gargoyle" idea for good- he never tries a fresh attempt at that one after Thailog turns on him.

Heroic Build: Goliath (and Thailog by extension). Averted with Broadway and Hudson, who both sport some paunch. Must run in the family. Brooklyn also counts, though he's not nearly as bulky as Goliath - more of a gymnast than a power lifter. And Dingo and Wolf from The Pack. Wolf is probably one of the strongest humans alive even before being bio-engineered into a Half-Human Hybrid.

Similar Squad: In the episode "Bushido," Goliath meets a clan of gargoyles living in Japan. They're led by a tall, deep-voiced gargoyle named Kai, have a policeman ally, are betrayed by one of their own, and as it turns out later, they're actually being manipulated by a shifty Japanese businessman named Taro who's set himself up as the gargoyles' benefactor. Sounds familiar... Hell, Taro even turns out to have a kick-ass robot suit just like Xanatos, though his is built to look like samurai armor.

Political Correctness Gone Mad: Deconstructed. Prince Malcolm tells his daughter, Princess Katherine, stories that demonize the gargoyles to frighten her into good behavior even though he personally views them positively. When Hudson expresses concern about these stories, Malcolm brushes him off by saying he's being "too sensitive." Fast forward a few years and Katherine's prejudice gets most of the gargoyles massacred and the rest turned to stone for a thousand years.

Brother–Sister Incest: Averted, despite whatever people on the internet keep whispering. Gargoyles regard all their rookery-mates as siblings, and they tend to mate among their rookery-mates, but rookery-siblings are exactly that: gargoyles from the same rookery (Locale where eggs are stored and hatched). They were, essentially, just birthed in the same hospital at the same time, not actually blood relations. Any literal applications of this trope have been Jossed, since gargoyle couples usually have only one egg in each generation. Scent markers prevent Kissing Cousins. However, for the human characters, Jackal and Hyena are a little too close for some fans. Others don't mind too much, and it's established that Hyena's specifically into roboticization kinks — as Coyote gets less and less human over the series, she gets more attracted to him — which would imply her brother may qualify, too. Word of God, however, is that Jackal isn't Hyena's type.

All Myths Are True
 Gargoyles / int_776a06eb
comment
All Myths Are True: Explicitly stated in the series: "Most Legends contain a seed of truth", and "All things are true." However this is not always in the literal sense. A few of the mythical beings met during the Avalon World Tour are very different from the stories. (For example, some Tricksters tend to be outright evil rather than mischievous.) In another episode, it is revealed that most of the creatures from Greek legends are real, however the stories are notably different. The minotaur, for example, was trapped in the catacombs and used as a source of entertainment by his captors. In the comic book, King Arthur points out that "All things are true... few things are accurate." To which Macbeth, whose depiction in Gargoyles is far more historically accurate than his villainous portrayal in Shakespeare's play (even allowing for the immortality and such), replies, "Aye. No bloody kidding." The following things all exist in the world of Gargoyles: Wizards and magic High-tech sci-fi tropes: laser guns, robots, genetic engineering, cloning, etc. Ghosts The Fair Folk King Arthur The Loch Ness Monster Aliens (both Ancient Astronauts and Alien Invaders) The Illuminati The Golem of Prague Time Travel (the Stable Time Loop variety) Gods, tricksters, and monsters from Greek, Egyptian, Norse, Hopi, Irish, Ashanti, and Haida myth, among others (most of whom are related to The Fair Folk) A woman who is implied to be Scheherezade The Dreamtime

Five-sixths of his clan are dishonorably murdered, (apparently) including his deeply beloved mate. The chief perpetrators fall to their deaths before his eyes, depriving him of any vengeance. Through a misunderstanding, the few survivors are cursed with eternal sleep - and no method remains to heal them. He opts to join their eternal sleep. Against all odds, the sleep is not so eternal... but that's just so the universe can keep messing with him. After one brief moment of joyful reunion he learns that his species is extinct and utterly forgotten: there's no news of the eggs he gave to human allies for safekeeping. Everything he knew is gone and the new world immediately proves to be full of bigotry and crime. His beloved, miraculously alive, turns out to have become a hateful, twisted mockery of her former self, and the human who now owns his ancestral home immediately exploits and betrays the little trust he has left. And it goes on like that!

Fair for Its Day
 Gargoyles / int_79a80b74
comment
Fair for Its Day: In-universe: Oberon was very benevolent - for one of The Fair Folk - back in the tenth century. Due to the arrogance and cruelty of the others, Oberon had them banished from Avalon to teach them humility and benevolence. While most of the Children of Oberon did learn their lesson in their 1,001 years of exile, Oberon himself didn't.

Pocket Protector: Elisa's badge in "Long Way to Morning," and it actually makes sense. A badge can in no way stop a modern bullet, but since this was actually a poison dart, not a lethal projectile, it might have even been stopped by just her thick leather jacket.

Animal-Themed Superbeing
 Gargoyles / int_7a87fa80
comment
Animal-Themed Superbeing: A few examples: The members of the Pack are all canine-based supervillains. Some of which, gradually moved from Type II (Animal Alias) to type I (Animal Ability) through certain means. Elisa's brother was eventually turned into a winged, panther-like creature, making him a Type II as well. The other three mutates were a cougar, a tiger and what seemed to be a house cat. The Bad Guys comics then introduced four more mutates, armored types, them being an alligator, a woodlouse, a turtle and an armadillo. Since Xanatos wore a suit of Power Armor to resemble the "mythological" gargoyle, he would be a Type III (Mythical Monster Motif). Also, the London clan all resemble animals (Una, Leo, and Griff), while some of the New Olympians (such as Taurus) do as well.

Tranquilizer Dart: When Brooklyn is hit with one, he goes down almost instantly, but is still blinking groggily when he's dragged away – so it may not have put him out completely at all. Goliath gets hit with one in "Awakening" as well, which only slows him down for a while. Subverted in "Metamorphosis" when Derek gets shot.

Later Installment Weirdness: The Goliath Chronicles was made by a different staff of writers, and its tone is noticeably different. Each episodes starts an opening narration by Goliath, the episodes are more self contained and less focused on an overarching story, and the characters personalities are slightly different than they use to be, most notably with David Xanatos.

Armor-Piercing Question
 Gargoyles / int_7b6e47a5
comment
Armor-Piercing Question: Done in Part 4 of City of Stone, which leads to Demona's defining Tear Jerker moment of the series. Also Hudson in The Price towards Xanatos; after being held captive by the villain for most of the episode in an attempt by Xanatos to become immortal, Hudson frees himself and has this parting comment for him (notably causing one of the few times in the series Xanatos actually seems genuinely affected by criticism): In "Temptation", Demona questions Brooklyn for believing Goliath that humans will eventually accept them. Goliath and Renard zigzag this trope in Outfoxed, trading questions that at best inflict minor chinks in each other's armor, until Goliath finally asks a question that pierces his own armor, which begins to earn Renard's respect.

comment
Can't Stand Them, Can't Live Without Them: Demona and Macbeth are a non-romantic twist on this trope, with Demona being the loner type who was forced against her will into a relationship of sorts with Macbeth; they utterly hate each other, but if one of them kills the other, they both will die permanently. Which, at one point, was exactly what Macbeth wanted before Goliath and the Weird Sisters persuaded him otherwise.

Boomerang Bigot: Played with a twist by Demona. She wants to Kill All Humans for nearly wiping out her species, but when she asks Literal Genie Puck to make her immune to daylight petrification (as gargoyles do), he grants her request by making her turn into a human from dawn to dusk every day. Notably, this doesn't stop her — instead, it just lets her find more ways of reaching her goals, since she can now blend in with her "enemies" undetected. Throughout the series she easily takes to human society and tools, such as human sorcery and technology, even before she gained her human transformation curse. She even started her own freaking company (named Nightstone)! For all of her hatred towards humans, Demona fits in far more with human civilization than she does with her fellow gargoyles.

Reckless Gun Usage: Elisa is at one point seriously injured when Broadway accidentally shoots her while playing with her gun.

Notably, she's much more careful for the rest of the series.

"Reading Is Cool" Aesop: For Hudson and Broadway. In "Awakening, Part Two," they present this Aesop in a roundabout way by portraying Hakon not only as a ruthless marauder, but also as being unapologetically illiterate: "Magic spells, hah! Makes me glad I can't read!" In short, not reading is not cool.

Establishing Character Moment: See Barehanded Blade Block above. In the first scene in the first episode, Goliath catches a sword, and there's a trickle of blood. This reveals important things about both gargoyles in general and Goliath in particular: they aren't quite invincible, which means that combat and leadership require carefulness and genuine bravery just like for humans, but they're still really tough. In addition, Lexington, Brooklyn, and Broadway each get an Establishing Character Episode immediately after "Awakening."

Don't forget Fang - voiced by James freakin' Belushi: Goliath has his moments as well: Thailog becomes hammier and hammier the more he appears, but it still does not take away from how dangerous he can be.

Interspecies Romance
 Gargoyles / int_8485d41a
comment
Interspecies Romance: Goliath and Elisa start with an Odd Friendship, complicated by his survivor's guilt and his fear of being betrayed again. "The Mirror" (which features each of them briefly transformed into the other's species) begins a Relationship Upgrade, but they're highly aware of the various obstacles in the way of that kind of relationship. This leads to Will They or Won't They? for the remainder of the series. Demona's and Macbeth's relationship was also implied to contain some romantic tension, before paranoia and treachery turned them against each other. In fact, Word of God says that Demona is the equivalent of Lady Macbeth, notwithstanding Macbeth's marriage to Gruoch. In the comics continuity, this seems to be implied for Thailog and Shari, as a sort of Evil Counterpart couple to Goliath and Elisa. Also planned for the New Olympians spin-off. And don't forget the Third Race. Word of God says that the New Olympians themselves are the result of this between the Third Race and humans.

Parental Bonus: There are a few jokes that most kids wouldn't get. In the opening to "Leader of the Pack", Fox and Hyena are sitting in a prison cell, with Hyena flicking rubber bands at cockroaches and Fox reading a book by Sartre. Hyena asks her why she bothers with that, and Fox says, "Because Nietzsche's too butch, and Kafka reminds me of your little friends over there." Kafka's best-known work, of course, involves a man who one day wakes up as a giant cockroach. There are numerous Shakespearean references, although this wound up being an Unconventional Learning Experience - Weisman says numerous kids who watched the show turned to Shakespeare so they could learn more about Macbeth, Puck, etc. This is also one of the things Greg is most proud of in regards to the series. Funnily enough, Macbeth's back story is very true to what we know of the real history, once you take the magic out, while those who go back to Shakespeare will find something very different, as Shakespeare completely changed things to make it appeal to King James I, since the play was specially written for a royal command performance.

 Gargoyles / int_86e2d67b
comment
Compound Interest Time Travel Gambit: Xanatos' coin trick in Vows is in the spirit of the trope, if not the letter: Xanatos doesn't gain any interest on the coin, but its antique and historic value goes up over 1,000 years. "It's practically worthless now, in 975 A.D... but by 1975, it should be worth... oh about twenty grand?"

Humiliation Conga: Taro gets one at the end of "Bushido". He created a gargoyle theme with the Ishimura clan as the main attraction. Elisa foiled his plan and the gargoyles left the park without being noticed. Guest reporters came in and find Taro humiliated hung in a robot gargoyle's hand only to clumsily fall down. Elisa and Hiroshi then make up wild stories of gargoyles, effectively destroying Taro's credibility. Not to mention this will result in a huge loss of investment.

Back from the Dead: Rarely, and with careful justification. The Captain of the Guard and Haakon return as ghosts, the Archmage abuses a Stable Time Loop, and Coldstone has the misfortune to combine this trope with Me's a Crowd. Coyote (the AI, not the supernatural one) had the easiest time with this... luckily for him.

No One Could Survive That!: Played straight in "The Price" when the gargoyles see Macbeth explode. Subverted in "Shadows of the Past" when the reincarnated ghosts of Hakon and the Captain are trapped in a collapsing magical structure, Elisa says "No one could survive that," and in fact, they didn't. (They became ghosts again, and the Captain "passed on.")

Out-of-Character Moment
 Gargoyles / int_8ca20b69
comment
Out-of-Character Moment: Macbeth's first introduction and his origin story make his goals clear: He seeks Demona's death, both for vengeance and also to give himself peace after millennia of wandering the Earth. However, in two episodes, for no given reason, he is instead seeking ultimate power through connections to Arthurian legend. First he tries to steal scrolls rumored to contained Merlin's spells, which instead contain Merlin's personal diary (Whose story have a magic all their own...), and then he tries to steal Excalibur itself from an awakened Arthur. In both episodes he has two henchmen who are not seen in any other episodes, and in no other episodes does he make reference to questing for ultimate power, nor in these episodes does he make any reference to his vendetta against Demona. Word of God says that Macbeth wanted to use Merlin's spells against Demona (which also explains why he wanted to test them against another gargoyle). Given that Demona had magic of her own, this is understandable. It doesn't explain his desire to claim Excalibur, though; Macbeth had given up his vendetta against Demona by then. However, becoming the new "One True King" could have given his life, and immortality, some meaning again. Demona has a few Out of Character Moments in the backstory of "City of Stone," such as when she chose to save Macbeth and Gruoch rather than pursue vengeance against Gillecomgain in 1020, and when she honored Macbeth's wish to spare Canmore's life in 1040. On the other hand, this is only out of character for after she crossed the Moral Event Horizon, which she may not have done until 1057. Demona again, after the Wyvern massacre. She noticed the Magus and Katherine taking the Gargoyles eggs. You think Demona would have being enraged and attacked the humans for stealing her children, especially those two particular gargoyles-haters. Instead, it's too much for her to handle emotionally and she let them leave with the eggs.

Kingmaker Scenario
 Gargoyles / int_8d4e3278

Kingmaker Scenario: In the flashbacks in "City of Stone," there seemed to be something like this: Macbeth's father Findlaech, though not an heir to the throne, had plenty of popular support and could have been a Kingmaker for Macbeth. Fearing this, Duncan had Findlaech assassinated, not knowing that Findlaech was loyal to Duncan and never would have used his influence to make Macbeth king, or that Findlaech's assassination on Duncan's orders would eventually lead to Macbeth becoming king anyway.

Wham Episode
 Gargoyles / int_8e20979
comment
Wham Episode: There were several that reshaped the world (or the viewers' perception of it). "Enter Macbeth" forced the clan to relocate from their original home. "Metamorphosis" not only created the mutates but rubbed the viewers' faces in Xanatos' prideful and manipulative villainy. "Vows" and "City of Stone" explained much that had only been hinted at and set up an Alas, Poor Villain or two. "The Mirror" established The Fair Folk as part of the setting and started the transformation of Goliath and Elisa's relationship. "Avalon" started out by revealing that Goliath's clan were not quite the last of their kind, and finished by turning the seeming 'stand-alone' adventure into a strange journey that revealed many secrets. And, of course, "Hunter's Moon" forced the gargoyles' emergence into wider public view.

Asshole Victim
 Gargoyles / int_8ed5c6e4
comment
Asshole Victim: Almost everyone at Castle Wyvern when the Vikings finally overran them - most if not all of the people who lived there except for young farm boy Tom and the captain of the guard and the King absolutely hated the gargoyles despite the fact that they were the backbone of their entire defense strategy, Princess Katherine hated them from childhood and talked trash about them despite all they did for her and her people, the Magus encouraged her bigotry towards them, the castle soldiers tried to take credit for victories that technically belonged to the gargoyles, etc. You really can't feel that bad for Princess Katherine and her people when Laser-Guided Karma catches up to them. And then, of course, there's the aforementioned captain of the guard, who betrayed everyone. The Captain of the Guard is a tragic example though in that he was trying to help the Gargoyles by getting rid of the ungrateful Princess Katharine, Magus, soldiers and other assorted folk living at Castle Wyvern who treated the Gargoyles like crap despite all the Gargoyles did to protect them. He even told Goliath point blank that he and his clan deserved better. But his plan backfired horribly when he couldn't stop the Viking Leader Hakon and his men from destroying the majority of the clan in stone form. The Captain got some small measure of revenge when he wrestled Hakon off the cliff to their deaths, only to spend centuries with his spirit trapped in a cave along with Hakon's spirit until Goliath eventually came back and set his spirit free by forgiving him.

Ignored Epiphany
 Gargoyles / int_9053903
comment
Ignored Epiphany: Demona lives and breathes this trope. Ignoring the truth behind all the death and destruction she has caused is probably the only way she can continue to function. Although she does it several times, the most notable is in the "City of Stone" arc. Unfortunately, Goliath isn't immune to this trope either. Back in "City of Stone" he tried to convince Macbeth that "Killing her won't solve anything" and "Death never does." He had forgotten that epiphany by the time of "Hunter's Moon," when he went on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the Canmores. Completely justified since the Canmores attack Angela and Goliath spent the whole night watching helplessly as his daughter tried to survive till daylight and is planning on going Papa Wolf on them.note Which is quite similar to Macbeth's motive for killing Gillecomgain, and equally ineffective in settling the score it was meant to settle.

Bloodstained Glass Windows: The final battle between Demona, the Hunters, and the Manhattan Clan in "Hunter's Moon" takes place in a cathedral, as does the battle between Demona and the Hunters' father in the flashback. The Cloisters where Brooklyn fights Demona in "Temptation" may count as well, since its architecture was inspired by that of medieval churches even though it isn't a church itself.

Laser-Guided Karma: Brooklyn gets a bit of this. Near the middle of the first season (in "Temptation"), he was responsible for Goliath becoming mind-controlled by Demona. Near the end of the second season (in "Possession"), he learns firsthand what it's like to be mind-controlled by a malevolent gargoyle. And in "Turf," he's particularly eager to have an "Avalon World Tour" of his own after Angela tells him about the 15 female gargoyles in the Avalon Clan... and later the Phoenix sends him on a "world tour" of sorts...

Revenge: Notably averted. Those who wronged the gargoyles die a Karmic Death before Goliath gets a shot at them. Demona's plan to wipe out humanity fails as well. Xanatos is smart enough to avoid seeking it, and the one time he does, he gets Out-Gambitted by Thailog. In fact, only one character has succeeded at revenge: Vinnie, by throwing a pie in Goliath's face.

Not Me This Time: David Xanatos was behind so much of the Gargoyles' troubles, that Brooklyn and especially Talon assumed he was responsible for Goliath and Elisa's disappearance. And Elisa assumed that he was responsible for Demona's theft of DI-7 from his own warehouses in "Hunter's Moon." And when the Scrolls of Merlin are stolen, the gargoyles immediately assume Xanatos was behind it, when Macbeth was really responsible.

Big Bad: Xanatos toward the start, but his partner Demona eventually overtook him in this role. She even planned to kill the entire human race with a magically amplified virus in the Hunter's Moon story arc. Castaway was one in the Goliath Chronicles. Word of God is that Thailog would have evolved into this had the series continued, as he shows in the comics where he's a member of the Illuminati.

Never My Fault
 Gargoyles / int_973d220f
comment
Never My Fault: A recurring theme throughout the show is how destructive this attitude can be. Demona and Jon Canmore may be on opposite sides, but they both have a real problem taking responsibility. Xanatos and Thailog avert this, willing to admit their mistakes in the unlikely event that they actually make one. The Captain also refuses to take responsibility for his involvement in the Wyvern Massacre (and subsequent attack on the Vikings' camp), first blaming Hakon for slaughtering the gargoyles ("If you hadn't destroyed the others!") and then blaming Goliath for not listening to his advice. ("I told you to take the other gargoyles with you...") This is Halcyon Renard's Berserk Button. Nothing angers him more than when people (or gargoyles, for that matter) claim that something is "not my fault." Even when he ends up saying it himself when he starts to realize that he may be Drunk with Power in one episode, it's followed up soon after with him admitting "What Have I Become?" after hearing Goliath's Armor-Piercing Question.

Rewatch Bonus: "Legion" in particular has this: About halfway through the episode, it's revealed that Coldstone is controlled by three different gargoyle ghosts, and his "erratic" behavior from earlier (e.g. confusion when Goliath calls him "Brother") makes perfect sense when one realizes that those three ghosts were struggling for control. For example, Coldstone's confusion at being addressed as "Brother" occurred while the female gargoyle was in control.

Death Takes a Holiday: Albeit a forced one, in "Grief". An interesting case, because Greg Weisman later went on to say that he regretted not actually doing anything with the concept; the Pack never tried to kill the characters during Anubis' imprisonment, so audiences only had the Emir's word that death was null during that space of time.

Not So Different: Demona and John Castaway after the latter's Face–Heel Turn. Jason and Robyn Canmore were not so different from Demona either, until their Heel–Face Turn. The same can be said with the New Olympians. Their racism toward Elisa is no different from how humans react toward Gargoyles. It's born out of old prejudices, fear and ignorance.

Greater-Scope Villain: The Illuminati Society as a whole; a group of chessmasters so skilled and influential that Xanatos is at the bottom of their hierarchy, but they're only directly involved in one episode and indirectly in a handful of others. The comic continuation indicates that they would have ended up in a more central role had the series continued.

Van Helsing Hate Crimes: Innumerable examples in the backstory, resulting in the near-extinction of gargoyles by the time of the Renaissance. The Pack first cross paths with the gargoyles in this way, the Hunters have adopted it as a way of life, and a lot of the ordinary citizens in The Goliath Chronicles perform fairly petty ones.

His Story Repeats Itself: After the tragic events at Wyvern, Demona made sure to avoid the same fate to her new clan when she allies with Macbeth. She took her clan away from castle Moray when it was attacked by Canmore. Unfortunately, this is once again a betrayal toward her human allies, which was all for naught in the end, because her new clan end up massacred anyway. Demona never learned from her mistakes.

Thunderbird: During Goliath's world tour arc, the heroes run across a pair of Oberon's Children masquerading as Native Americans in an effort to protect/drive off a tribe inhabiting the area they were in. In an effort to convince the tribe's new, modern-thinking chief that All Myths Are True, the benign one (Grandmother) takes the form of the Thunderbird to get him to engage in a ritual magic battle with the hostile one (Raven) for control of the land. This rather backfires when the heroes mistake the transformation for an attack and accidentally down the Thunderbird before the chief can see it.

Foreshadowing
 Gargoyles / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: Gargoyles having been planned out to a degree would foreshadow many upcoming stories. Some of which includes the "City of Stone" 4 parter and the following episode "High Noon" set up the 3 part episode "Avalon" as The Weird Sisters take control of Demona & Macbeth, as well as securing the three talismans (The Grimorum Arcanorum, The Phoenix Gate and The Eye of Odin). A noticeable example is "Future Tense". While the big picture of that Bad Future was merely an illusion, many of those 'future' events have occurred in later stories and were planned. When Demona first summons Puck in "The Mirror", she says "You serve the human", referring to the fact that Owen and Puck are the same being. Other episodes would hint at the same thing, but this one was the first and most noticeable.

Continuity Nod: Frequent, and well done. When particular villains return (The Pack, Demona, and Dracon) gargoyles who have been specifically slighted by them (Lexington, Brooklyn, and Broadway, respectively) are more incensed and determined than the others. When King Arthur (Yes, that King Arthur) is attacked by Macbeth (Yes, that Macbeth) he recognizes him and calls out his name, but Macbeth expresses confusion and asks if they me have met; when they had met, Macbeth was being manipulated and later had his memory erased. The show remembers who did what and when, and keeps it all straight.

Amazing Technicolor Population: The gargoyles themselves have skin colors across the spectrum; Oberon and Titania also have blue and teal skin, respectively. Word of God is that the giving the King and Queen of the Third Race a realistic skin color, when the Third Race was comprised of gods from all over the world, would have had Unfortunate Implications no matter what skin color it was, which justifies this trope in Oberon's and Titania's case.

Super Toughness
 Gargoyles / int_9eb71c7c
comment
Super Toughness: The Gargoyles aren't indestructible by any means, but they are extremely tough even for creatures of their size and weight. To prove this point, in the pilot Goliath catches the downstroke of a Viking sword in his bare hand, and though he bleeds some, the cut appears relatively minor compared to the major damage (a bloody stump) that a human being would take from trying something similar. Combined with their ability to apparently perfectly heal any wounds short of total dismemberment they received before sleeping, this makes the gargoyles incredibly difficult to put down.

Leitmotif: Macbeth has a distinct bagpipe theme reflecting his Scottish ancestry. Puck has one with flutes.

Imposter Forgot One Detail: In "Shadows of the Past", the ghosts of Hakon and the Captain torment Goliath with an illusion of his fallen clan members reviving as vengeful statue versions of themselves demanding retribution for getting them killed that fateful night. Goliath couldn't bring himself to fight back due to the guilt he held for failing to save them. However, he knew something was up when a statue of Demona appears, claiming she will make him pay for letting her die as well. Goliath knew for a fact that Demona was (unfortunately) still alive, making him realize the setting was all fake.

My God, What Have I Done?
 Gargoyles / int_a1b141f4
comment
My God, What Have I Done?: Purposely invoked several times (Goliath has one after donning the Eye of Odin). Oddly Xanatos himself has one after his first failure that wasn't a Xanatos Gambit or even a Gambit Roulette in Thailog: Subverted by Demona, who upon seeing the destruction of her clan, first utters "What have I — what have they done?!". This extreme denial of her responsibility and culpability would go on to be a long-standing character trait. Subverted again in a Callback in the final episode of Season 2, when Jon Canmore accidentally shoots his brother in his attempt to kill Goliath. He repeats Demona's above line verbatim.

Not Quite Flight: Gargoyles don't fly, they glide. Still, they do a lot of aerobatic stunts that would make you think otherwise. The mutates avert this, though, as they actually can fly, thanks to their electric powers giving them the energy they need for it.

Canon Discontinuity
 Gargoyles / int_a32334b4
comment
Canon Discontinuity: The entire Goliath Chronicles except for the very first episode, "The Journey," never happened according to Word of God (Weisman). To enforce this, "The Journey" was included as the beginning of the comic book continuation published by Slave Labor Graphics, solidifying its canon status, followed by the rest of the comic books contradicting The Goliath Chronicles. They also imported one additional scene from TGC: Where Robbins reveals that he'd figured out Hudson was a gargoyle before he could tell him. In a sense; Word of God has specified multiple times that this was always the direction they were intending to bring Robbins' and Hudson's relationship. Greg Weisman did, however, borrow a (slightly altered) version of one fan-favorite line of dialogue from that scene, as "a nice tribute to all the hard work that the TGC crew put in, with little thanks or reward." Weisman may be a hard-liner on declaring Canon Discontinuity, but he's also a notoriously Nice Guy. Much of the events of "Future Tense" are implied to be just a story told by an Unreliable Narrator. Said Unreliable Narrator, however, may have the ability to see the future, so it's difficult to say for certain.

No Need for Names
 Gargoyles / int_a61fcc3b
comment
No Need for Names: Initially, this is how the Gargoyles feel about the human custom of naming each other. Goliath gets his name from the Castle Wyvern Captain of the Guard, but the rest of the clan goes unnamed. After awakening in 1990s New York, the elderly gargoyle tries to compare the gargoyles' lack of names to rivers, only to wind up stunned upon the revelation that humans name rivers. He gives up and takes the name "Hudson", after the river, which later inspires the rest of the clan to take names based on New York landmarks. Other modern-day clans all give themselves names, and the Avalon Clan (who were raised by humans) seem confused that Goliath would even expect otherwise.

Ascended Extra "Vinnie" is a carbon copy of "Vinnie Barbarino" (originally played by John Travolta) in the TV show "Welcome Back Kotter." He uses the original Vinnie's distinctive way of speaking and refers to his custom-built cannon as "Mr. Carter" (which sounds suspiciously like "Mr. Kotter").

Karma Houdini: Most of the Children of Oberon (like the Weird Sisters, Raven, Anansi and Oberon) that antagonize the Manhattan Clan are never given any comeuppance. The only ones who are punished in any way are Banshee and Puck, and they're both punished for completely different reasons. Xanatos, though Word of God is that Karma did in fact catch up to Xanatos: All that arrogance, had to receive some comeuppance. (Can anyone say Oberon?)

Only Known by Their Nickname: The Pack, although some of their real names have been revealed.

Claw's real name, though, continues to remain a mystery. Canmore, largely because of the One Malcolm Limit.

Doesn't Like Guns
 Gargoyles / int_aaf19fae
comment
Doesn't Like Guns: Broadway is not a fan of firearms. This actually grew out of an episode of the show, where his enthusiasm for Western films went too far and he played with and accidentally shot Elisa with her service pistol. For many episodes thereafter he happily crushed or broke every firearm he could get his claws on. It's not so much that he hates guns per se, but that he doesn't like them to be mishandled and/or used to hurt people. He seems to recognize their usefulness but prefers them in the hands of responsible people (don't we all). It's guns in the hands of human scumbags like Tony Dracon's thugs that really ticks him off.

Dramatic Irony
 Gargoyles / int_ab5eea65
comment
Dramatic Irony: Several examples... In "Awakening, Part Two," Goliath asks the Magus and Katharine to take care of the eggs, and they agree to do so. Later, in "City of Stone, Part One," it is revealed that Demona had seen the Magus and Katharine taking the eggs out of the rookery, and she couldn't possibly have overheard Goliath asking them to do so... but she doesn't even try to stop them from "stealing" the eggs anyway. The Canmore family's vendetta against Demona is particularly ironic considering that only Macbeth can kill her. Apparently they've never worked out the immortality angle. Pretty much the entire backstory of "City of Stone" is full of Dramatic Irony; Findlaech's pledge of loyalty to Duncan, Duncan's order to kill Findlaech to keep Macbeth from becoming king, Macbeth's willingness to save Duncan's life on the assumption that Duncan would have saved his, Demona eavesdropping on just enough of Macbeth's conversation to conclude that Macbeth will probably betray her (when he had no intention of betraying her)...

Fatal Flaw: Every character has one.

Harmful to Minors: Many acts of violence were committed within the sight and earshot of children. Katharine saw the Archmage poison her father Prince Malcolm; Tom saw Constantine murder Kenneth; Macbeth saw the Hunter kill his father Findlaech; Malcolm Canmore saw Macbeth kill his father Duncan; and Robyn and Jon Canmore saw Demona kill their father Charles. The trauma of witnessing these events generally led to the predictable results.

Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Macbeth in the backstory of "City of Stone" was a genuinely honest, loyal, and all-around good guy, but he misjudged Duncan's character as horribly as vice versa. This is most clearly seen when Macbeth saves Duncan's life and then expresses confidence that Duncan would have done the same for Macbeth.

comment
Or Was It a Dream?: "Future Tense." "Was it a dream? Or a prophecy?" (See foreshadowing above for some details) While some events have actually occured in some fashion, some that occured in passing would be unlikely or were made up by Puck to deliver further explanations to Goliath. While Puck knew of Thailog through working with Xanatos as Owen, he was unaware that Thailog and Demona hooked up, thus Brooklyn's sudden comment about him dying in the Clone Wars. Demona can only be killed by Macbeth and should be unable to be killed by Xanatos.

 Gargoyles / int_ac7b87df
comment
Off-Model: Several episodes, with Wang's "Enter Macbeth" and Hong Ying's "Monsters"note Explained in detail below being by far the worst offenders. "Monsters" was probably much worse in terms of graphics. For one, it had Angela awaken, but instead of the stone breaking off her, it simply fades, with stone shards appearing around her out of nowhere. "Awakening Part 3" has a slightly different look than the other four parts. This is in play largely because of outsourcing to various animation houses (like with many fellow Disney shows), including their then-usual subcontractorsnote Wang, Hanho Heung-Up, Sunwoo Entertainment, Tama Productions, Toon City, Animal Ya, Jade Animation and Nakamura Productions, some they hadn't worked with before note Sunmin Animation, Koko Enterprises & Hong Ying and some they haven't worked with sincenote AKOM, Hahn Shin Corporation, & Nelvana (co producers for the Goliath Chronicles season). Also The Goliath Chronicles episode "Seeing Isn't Believing", though it makes up for it with incredibly fluid animation (as per expected with the Australian studio).

Arc Villain: Each of the major multipart storylines has one (or more): "Awakening" has Demona and Xanatos as a Big Bad Duumvirate. "City of Stone" has Demona alone, eclipsing Xanatos as the major threat. "Avalon" has the Archmage, with the Weird Sisters collectively serving as his Dragon with an Agenda. This arc also retroactively establishes the Archmage and the Sisters as the Greater Scope Villains of the entire first half of the series. "The Gathering" has Lord Oberon. "Hunter's Moon" has Demona and the Hunters as a Big Bad Ensemble, opposing each other as well as the clan. Ultimately, the Hunters are a bigger threat to the clan, but Demona is a bigger threat to the world at large.

Avenging the Villain: The reason behind Duncan's attack on Demona (who helped Macbeth kill Gillecomgain) and Canmore's war against Macbeth and Demona (who "murdered" Duncan and cheated Canmore out of his inheritance).

Ms. Fanservice: Many female characters, but Elisa ( both human and her one time as a Gargoyle), Demona, The Weird Sisters, Hyena as a cyborg, Angela ( even more so in the comics), Fox, and Titania are the most prominent examples. Let's not forget Delilah, a sexy Mix-and-Match Critter of Demona and Elisa that calls Thailog "Master." It's implied she was created entirely for Thailog's gratification, and we all know what that means.

Benevolent Monsters: The Gargoyles themselves were relocated from Scotland to Manhattan by David Xanatos as part of his Evil Plan to terrorize New York into his personal fiefdom. However, once the Gargoyles learned that they were expendable pawns in Xanatos' game, they had a Heel–Face Turn, and took to defending the people of New York. Except for Demona, of course: as the Token Evil Teammate, she has her own agenda that puts her in the Heel–Face Revolving Door.

Fate Worse than Death
 Gargoyles / int_b1346878
comment
Fate Worse than Death: Mace Malone being trapped in the Hotel Cabal until he eventually died of dehydration. Also, Demona has had a thousand years to watch as everyone she loved died or turned against her. On some level, she realizes all the suffering she's seen is primarily her own fault, and she's bitterly aware of how alone she is. Her hatred's really all that's left of her. Ditto for Macbeth, who is just as alone as Demona is. His virtual immortality forced him to outlive his beloved family. (See Heroic Sacrifice for details.) For a good part of his appearances, he actually wants to die. "I'm just so tired." But then, Macbeth hasn't killed himself either. If they can only die at each other's hands, maybe they can't die at their own. The Weird Sisters certainly imply as much: nothing can kill Demona or Macbeth except lethal force inflicted by one upon the other. The three gargoyle souls trapped within Coldstone. No sense of touch, smell or taste, and the two good souls are trapped with an evil, jealous one. Worse yet, each soul has to fight to control the robotic body they're in. The fear of the evil one gaining control forced the two good ones to separate from the only family they know. This, of course, is finally resolved in "Possession" via extensive magic. Hakon might have gotten this worst of all. First he's trapped in a cave as a ghost with only his bitter enemy for company, then he's trapped in a rock in that cave, until he manages to bind himself to an axe some time later.

Loophole Abuse: Give Puck any command or restriction, and he'll weasel his way out through loopholes. Oberon curses him so he can only use magic to teach or defend Alex. Xanatos wants Puck to use his magic to help Coldstone. Puck arranges for a 'lesson' for Alex that just so happens to get Xanatos's goals accomplished. He also gets in a little fun along the way... Peter Maza isn't too happy that the Gargoyles are going break into Xanatos' construction site. Eliza tells her father that the Gargoyles don't legally exist so they aren't breaking any laws.

Retcon In "Long Way to Morning," we see and hear the Archmage hit the bottom, but "Avalon, Part Two" establishes that he never did hit the bottom. The mutates' appearance. Word of God says he was dissatisfied with their original look. Macbeth's coronation, which is indoors in "City of Stone" although Word of God is that it should have been outdoors. In the comics, his coronation is outdoors. At the end of "Avalon, Part Three," after Goliath frees the Weird Sisters, they vanish, and so do the chains that had bound them. In "Ill Met By Moonlight," it is established that the Avalon gargoyles had actually recovered those chains for future use against The Fair Folk.

Cycle of Revenge: One of the major themes of the "City of Stone" arc, and to a lesser extent, of the entire series. Also, the main theme of the "Hunter's Moon" finale. Notably averted by Xanatos, who considers revenge "a sucker's game." Then again, he never really loses, so he never has to make things personal... or was it the other way around?

Love Triangle: The Magus, Katharine, and Tom. Also a minor one between Finella, King Kenneth II, and Constantine III. Goliath, Demona, and Elisa, according to Word of God. Plus Coldstone, Coldfire, and Coldsteel. Despite Macbeth's marriage to Gruoch, Demona also saw herself in one of these with them until her betrayal. There was also a Love Square between Angela, Broadway, Brooklyn, and Lexington for a short period of time. Broadway eventually wins in the end.

Glowing Eyes of Doom
 Gargoyles / int_b85c06f2
comment
Glowing Eyes of Doom: The gargoyles' eyes glow when they are undergoing intense emotion, mostly anger. They can also make their eyes glow, generally for intimidation. Generally males' eyes glow white; females' eyes glow red. It's actually inverted with the clones. While male gargoyles' eyes glow white and female gargoyles' glow red, the male clones' eyes glow red and the female clones' glow white. There's also Fox, right before she blasted Oberon with her limited magical abilities to save her baby Alex from being taken away. Puck's eyes glow before some of his more seriously magic moments. Much like the gargoyles, the mutates' eyes can also glow when angry.

Future Me Scares Me: One episode dealt with Demona going back in time and confronting her younger self.

The Tear Jerker is even worse if you know what happens to Gruoch after Macbeth leaves.

Out of grief for losing her entire family, like many Shakespearean characters, she tragically commits suicide and dies a broken woman.

He's extremely well read, preferring to spend his nights with classic literature while the rest of the clan is either out on the town or in front on the TV. He's also very articulate, and prone to philosophical musings.

On top of the usual NYPD stuff like organized crime and petty thugs.

comment
Accidental Kiss: Word of God is that stroking your mate's hair is the gargoyle equivalent of kissing, and Elisa accidentally does this to Goliath just before they're about to explore Manhattan in "Awakening, Part Three". Goliath and Hudson find this about as awkward as you'd expect.

Impossible Task
 Gargoyles / int_bd6b86df
comment
Impossible Task: Many spells in the Grimorum Arcanorum have these as conditions. Mortal/Human magic has to be cast with a certain condition that makes it possible to nullify/reverse, so generally, most spellcasters simply create their spells under escape conditions that would generally seem to be impossible.

I Have No Daughter: Said by Demona when Angela tries to explain their relationship, though in this case, it's because Demona honestly believes her and Goliath's child should be dead by now. Not really the case since Thailog revealed that Demona knew Angela was her daughter before staging her capture. Angela in turn pulls an inverted on Demona after realizing that she tried to manipulate her into turning on Goliath and her Clan.

Appearance Is in the Eye of the Beholder: The Weird Sisters, who all take the same form at the same time, appearing as a trio of creepy little girls, old crones, aged female gargoyles, or voluptuous young 20-somethings, as befits who they are speaking to at the time, though they can still be told apart apart by hair color (blonde, black, white). The little girls are seen by the Manhattan clan, the old crones are seen by Macbeth and Duncan, and the old gargoyle hags are seen by Demona. Meanwhile the 20-somethings are their preferred form, seen by the audience and other Children of Oberon as well as any characters not implied to see them differently (although humans will see them in period/job appropriate attire). Word of God has stated that only the Third Race and the audience ever see them for what they truly are.

True Companions: After the deep-cutting betrayal of Demona and the Captain, Elisa was able to work her way up to this quickly in the Manhattan Clan's eyes. By "Deadly Force", the eighth episode of Season 1 and only third after the pilot, Goliath was willing to kill the man he thought shot her. All of the gargoyle clans, to the extent that most gargoyles from different countries and sometimes even different times instantly treat each other as such.

Xanatos Gambit
 Gargoyles / int_c32ff031
comment
Xanatos Gambit: Obviously. This may be one of the reasons Gargoyles is so well-remembered and became a watershed moment in Western Animation. It was never as simple as "Good Guys Win" – more often than not, even if the good guys won, the bad guy (usually Xanatos, natch) still benefitted. Note that Xanatos Gambits are not exclusive to Xanatos; the Weird Sisters, for example, pull one off in "High Noon". They brainwashed Macbeth and Demona into fighting the New York clan. Their real goal was distraction so they could steal magical items. If Macbeth and Demona won, however, that would be an additional bonus. Demona takes a note from Xanatos' playbook in "Mirror": She stages a robbery which of course is foiled by Goliath... just as she knew it would be. While he's pursuing her, her accomplices sneak in and steal the artifact she wanted. Then there's also Thailog, the "son" of Goliath and Xanatos' combined DNA. In "Sanctuary" where he hooks up with Demona, they pool their resources and plot for Demona to marry Macbeth, then imprison him, staging a death so they could acquire his resources. Unbeknownst to Demona, Thailog plotted to have her and Macbeth kill each other so he'd be the sole heir of all the fortunes for him to build his planned empire on. Even if the planned double death failed, he still has Demona wrapped around his finger for him to use for his benefit.

Irony
 Gargoyles / int_c335b9ec
comment
Irony: The Captain's loyalty lay with the gargoyles in Castle Wyvern rather than with the Scots, but his betrayal of the Scots led to the destruction of the gargoyle clan. This concept is even referenced in "M.I.A." when Goliath says that human problems often become gargoyle problems. Practically everything Duncan did in the backstory of "City of Stone" was an example of Situational (or Expectational) Irony. Findlaech's death was supposed to prevent Macbeth from becoming king, but instead it indirectly led to Macbeth becoming king. Gillecomgain's marriage to Gruoch was supposed to provoke Macbeth into committing treason, but instead he suffered in silence. The attack on Demona's cave was supposed to prevent Macbeth and the gargoyles from making an alliance; they wouldn't have made that alliance, if Duncan hadn't attacked that cave... Robyn Canmore, who along with her older brother Jason decided to give up the hunt against "The Demon", still wears the red-striped Hunter's Mask and calls herself a Hunter in Bad Guys. Jon Canmore, who never gave up the hunt for the Demon and all other gargoyles, no longer wears the striped Hunter's Mask (though he does wear the plain Quarryman's mask) and no longer calls himself a Hunter or even a Canmore. Yama was unsatisfied with a life of isolation from the rest of the world and longed for a more open existence. He got his wish and was exiled for his betrayal. With the Redemption Squad, he must travel the world until he can redeem himself. For all of Demona's schemeing in the final episode, she never seemed to realize that her plague would eventually kill her too. Why? Because it targets humans, guess who turns human during the day, every day.

Demona has a few Out of Character Moments in the backstory of "City of Stone," such as when she chose to save Macbeth and Gruoch rather than pursue vengeance against Gillecomgain in 1020, and when she honored Macbeth's wish to spare Canmore's life in 1040. On the other hand, this is only out of character for after she crossed the Moral Event Horizon, which she may not have done until 1057.

Luke, I Am Your Father: A rare case of this trope by Word of God only: Greg Weisman confirmed fan suspicions that Coldstone is Gabriel's father and that Hudson is Broadway's father. However, given gargoyles' instinctively collective parenting, neither would treat that revelation with much interest anyway. Gabriel, having been "Raised by Wolves," in this case humans, probably would, actually. After all, his rookery sister Angela was.

Magic Pants: Any item that a gargoyle considers theirs turns to stone with them. Items they are holding but do not own remain intact (which happens occasionally and seems odd if you do not know there is a rule). Lexington's wings would not normally allow for a loincloth and belt, but according to Word of God his wings are pierced. The official explanation? A Wizard Did It (Specifically, a wizard acting on behalf of the Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus, who had strong moral values and was offended by the fact that the gargoyles always lost their clothes when they turned to stone and back). Furthermore, Said wizard is confirmed by Word of God to have been the first person to combine the powers of The Grimorum, The Eye of Odin and The Phoenix Gate. Averted when Fox briefly became a werewolf. Elisa had to rip off her skirt to use as a blanket for her when she turned back to human.

Corrupt Corporate Executive: Xanatos, though not anywhere nearly as large as expected given his primarily antagonistic role in the series; his biggest venture into this arena (Which he actually lampshades as his first attempt at "Clichéd Villainy") was when he planned to destroy a Native American carving that was on the land he had leased for corporate practices. A more classic example would be Preston Vogel, who was operating a clear-cutting logging site in the Guatemalan rain forest in the episode "The Green" without any consent from Halcyon Renard, who also had hired ex-members of the Pack as security to kill off the local gargoyles that were opposing the logging. Similarly, Demona/Dominique Destine uses her company, Nightstone Unlimited mostly to support and fund her genocidal efforts.

Macbeth's coronation, which is indoors in "City of Stone" although Word of God is that it should have been outdoors. In the comics, his coronation is outdoors.

Outside-Context Problem
 Gargoyles / int_cc7fae30
comment
Outside-Context Problem: The titular Gargoyles are out of context because they are not only creatures who are stone by day and warriors by night, but they are also from medieval times. They were under a spell that made them sleep for a thousand years before waking up in mid-90s New York where they are the only supernatural creatures around (at least early on). Outside of Xanatos and Demona, most of their earlier enemies were at a loss dealing with them.

Boring Return Journey: Averted. After their quest on Avalon, it took months of wacky adventuring before Goliath and co return to Manhattan. Goliath went as far as to refuse Renard's offer to fly straight to Manhattan.

Corrupt Cop: Elisa turns into one, saying to Dracon that she was fed up with the ineffective justice system. As an aversion, she was working undercover to get closer to Dracon.

Killed Off for Real: Poor Magus. All goon squad members, except Bruno. Findlaech, Gillecomgain, Duncan,, and many versions of the Hunter were killed by Demona. Also Hakon who is literally Deader Than Dead.

Unfortunately, Goliath isn't immune to this trope either. Back in "City of Stone" he tried to convince Macbeth that "Killing her won't solve anything" and "Death never does." He had forgotten that epiphany by the time of "Hunter's
