* BiggerBad: 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.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: The end of the SLG comic book series where [[spoiler:the Clan just doubled in population]], suggesting a bright future, and the whole gang takes off to [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome do some villain butt kicking]].

* AndTheAdventureContinues: AndTheAdventureContinues:
** The finale of season 2 (regarded by everyone but Disney as the canonical end of the television series) 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."

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: 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 XanatosGambit or even a GambitRoulette 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.

* NeverMyFault: 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 [[CrazyPrepared unlikely]] [[XanatosGambit event]] that they actually make one.

* NeverMyFault: A recurring theme throughout the show is how destructive this attitude can be.

** 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 BerserkButton. Nothing angers him more than when people (or gargoyles, for that matter) claim that something is "not my fault."

*** [[spoiler: 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 (who 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!]]

* VillainousRescue: [[spoiler: Played with. In Season 2 finale, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Xanatos comes in a helicopter and rescue the Gargoyles from the NYPD.]] While Xanatos is still a villain, he's on more friendly terms with the gargoyles (at least in his eyes). The gargoyles on the other hand still don't fully trust him.]]
