* NoNeedForNames: 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 ''[[AnalogyBackfire 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.

* LoopholeAbuse: 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...

(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, [[EvilClone Thailog]] hooks up with Demona who's trying to lure Macbeth into marriage while Thailog's made a [[SexSlave]] 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?
