* TakeThat: [[ShowWithinAShow The Pack]] is a potshot to a multitude of children's shows made during TheEighties and early Nineties that treated audiences as if they couldn't appreciate and/or understand the complexities of real-life and excessively substituted substance {e.g. character development and good writing) with {{Excuse Plot}}s.

Added DiffLines:

* XanatosGambit: The entire plot. On one side, Xanatos collected a group of powerful mercenaries and have them work as some actors. They are secretly on his pay and he knows they are getting bored with their lavish lifestyle. On the other hand, Xanatos has the Gargoyle Clan who is now his enemy. After using Owen to set both sides up with knowledge of each other and on a likely collision course, Xanatos sat back and watched for three possible outcomes: the Pack and Gargoyles become allies (unlikely as it could be), the Pack defeats the Clan in part or whole, or The Clan defeats the Pack. Either way, it will test the Pack's strengths, the strength of the Clan, and he will be able to observe and plan to counter both teams if need be. He gets all this information at no real direct risk to himself and no way for him to lose.

Added DiffLines:

* MookHorrorShow: We switch to the Pack's perspective once they get onto the gargoyle-covered rooftop, as they're picked off one by one from the shadows.

Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: The animation was treated by [[WordOfGod both Greg Weisman and Frank Puar as a step down from the pilot when it was first released]]. They've since warmed up to it.

* FlatCharacter: The "Evil Ninjas" in [[ShowWithinAShow The Pack]] were created to be faceless individuals with little to no character development both as a contrast to the antagonists within the true show, Gargoyles, and as an invocation of ClichéStorm regarding animated shows of the Eighties and early Nineties (e.g. G.I. Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc.). See Take That below for details.

* AudienceSurrogate: Lexington serves in this role for this episode. He has a high degree of naivete in taking the Pack at face value as legitimate heroes in much the same way that many of the younger demographic would have about certain things popular at the time (e.g. such as Pro-wrestling and PowerRangers). See also Take That below for further details.

* NiceCharacterMeanActor: ShowWithinAShow example. The Pack are adored as television superheroes by the public, but are actually AxCrazy [[PsychoForHire mercenaries]]. Though Dingo and, to a lesser extent, Fox are subversions as the former is an OnlySaneMan PunchClockVillain who's OnlyInItForTheMoney and the latter is revealed to be more an amoral rogue than genuinely evil.

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Although the game in question is gargoyles rather than humans. Wolf's motives in particular resemble those of General Zaroff.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Goliath's belief that defeating Xanatos makes his clan the rightful owners of the castle reflects [[TemporalFishOutOfWater his tenth century thinking]]. Back in 994, a military victory would have won Goliath the castle for as long as he could defend it. The idea of a defeated foe retaining ownership of a castle he does not currently inhabit is foreign to Goliath.
