* Terrifying Rescuer: There were many a time when one of the Gargoyles would rescue someone only for the person they rescue to run away from them screaming.

** Lexington also fits, the little guy gets pretty pissed when his trust is betrayed. [[spoiler: There's also the TwistEnding of 'Future Tense']]

** Much of the events of [[spoiler: Future Tense]] are implied to be just a story told by an UnreliableNarrator. Said UnreliableNarrator, however, has the ability to see the future, so it's difficult to say for certain.
* CantArgueWithElves: Averted with regards to Gargoyle society and morals. While their rejection of materialism and desire to protect others are lauded and generally considered beyond reproach, they have some rather questionable views on parenting (namely that children should be raised by the entire clan and that biological parents should never recognize their own children) that they eventually decide are wrong.

The main characters of the series are gargoyles, large {{winged humanoid}}s (their appearance was vaguely demonic, though [[HaveIMentionedIAmADwarfToday 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 "[[CurseEscapeClause rise above the clouds]]".

One thousand years later, it did. Billionaire David Xanatos (yes, [[XanatosGambit that Xanatos]]) bought the ruined castle, then had it transported brick by brick from UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}} and rebuilt on top of his skyscraper in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. 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.

Added DiffLines:

* BandageWince: In "The Journey" Elisa bandages Goliath's wing and he does this. This is odd, because in the pilot he grasped a sword in his fist enough to bleed and didn't make a peep.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Unusually, this is thoroughly averted with Elisa. She's of Nigerian descent on her mother's side, and Hopi on her father's.
