** Also averted in a peculiar way with Xanatos and Fox's son, Alexander, and with Thailog, who adopts the name Alexander as the owner of Nightstone Unlimited.

''Gargoyles'' is a rare breed of a show. A dark, violent Western cartoon with a story that followes deliberate {{arc}}s and does things very rarely seen in the average Western 'cartoon. And it came from ''Creator/{{Disney}}''.

* FatalFlaw: Every character has one. For example, even Xanatos, trope namer of the XanatosGambit, has a blind spot when it comes to immortality (which Demona exploits in "City of Stone") and a rather fetishistic interest in Goliath's appearance and strength (which Thailog exploits in "Double Jeopardy").

* BoomerangBigot: Played with a twist by Demona. She wants to KillAllHumans for nearly wiping out her species, but when she asks LiteralGenie [[TheTrickster Puck]] to make her immune to daylight petrification (as gargoyles do), he grants her request by [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor making her turn into a]] ''[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor 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 serids 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.

** Lexington is the only one who averts it. Having always been fascinated by machines of any kind, he easily notices that modern time contraptions such as helicopters are indeed machines.

*** Not to say any of the Clan are super-loving of Xanatos, but Elisa in particular has trouble warming up to him after what he did to her brother. She seems to be quite protective and close with her family, which may be justified since it's implied she's the eldest sibling.

* BornOfMagic: All of the explicitly magical beings [[AllMythsAreTrue in the world and throughout history]] that the main cast encounter are revealed to be "Children of Oberon". It's not made clear if they were created through Oberon's magic, or unspecified fey reproduction.

*** Puck's is only pushed once, in his first appearance, but the consequences are monumental. Imprison him? Well you are trying to extract wishes from a JackassGenie, so good luck with that, but that's just part of the game and its not like he isn't used to servitude. Tell him to go away when he is offering you actual help? That's just rude and he won't be happy.

* TheWeirdSisters: The Weird Sisters, apparently the actual ones from ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'', are shown as inhabitants and guardians of the enchanted island of Avalon.

They all take the same form at the same time, but different people see them differently: Depending on who they are speaking to at the time, they may look like a trio of creepy little girls, old crones, aged female gargoyles, or voluptuous young 20-somethings.
