* CanonDiscontinuity: Greg Weisman quickly declared all of Season 3 past the first episode (which was adapted into his comic continuation) non-canon. It's never had any kind of official release.

* SpiritualAdaptation: "The Hound of Ulster" is essentially an adaptation of the debut of TheMightyThor in JourneyIntoMystery #83. A modern person discovers an old stick/cane underground which turns out to be the disguised weapon of a mythological god/hero, which transforms him into said god/hero. Greg regrets this similarity.

* RonTheDeathEater: This is done a lot to Goliath in fanfiction. Usually in stories that give Demona the DracoInLeatherPants treatment. There was a period where it got so bad, that when it was being discussed on one of the forums, GregWeisman himself had to comment: http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?rid=262

* WhatAnIdiot: Oh, so many that it could have its own page. Let's start at the beginning. Yes, people of Castle Wyvern, treat the gargoyles -- half of your fighting force -- like crap and act like {{Ungrateful Bastard}}s after they save you from the Vikings. Surely this won't cause problems later on when you need them the most.[[note]]A stupid decision, but one remniscient of several incidents in actual history. Almost every class-based revolution starts from very similar seeds.[[/note]]
** Brooklyn giving Demona the powerful grimoire despite the fact she tried to kill him the last time they met.

** Princess Katherine's father, Prince Malcolm, wasn't much smarter. Although he seemed to get along fairly well with the gargoyles, he had a bad habit of telling a young Katherine scary bedtime stories about them. Because telling your heir and future leader of the realm that your people's greatest allies are child-eating monsters can't possibly backfire. In fact, when Hudson calls him on it, he just laughs it off, saying Hudson is too sensitive.
** Brooklyn giving Demona the powerful grimoire despite the fact she tried to kill him the last time they met. Although the fact that she had just saved him from a pack of angry bikers might have made him a bit more willing to hear her out on the evils of humanity.

** Macbeth, on the other hand, does almost nothing really immoral in the whole episode, and comes off as a good deal more cunning than Arthur. His henchpeople do attempt to kill the gargoyles, but never in any scenes where Macbeth himself is present. In fact, at the start of the episode, the gargoyles actually attack Macbeth without any real provocation, pretty much an anomaly for them in the series.

Although it's a bit justified in their case because Macbeth has still done villainous things (stealing the scrolls of Merlin in an attempt to siphon the magical power he thought was contained in them) even when he's not actively fighting the Gargoyles. So when the Gargoyles saw Macbeth standing on a rooftop with a bubbling cauldron they assumed based on past experience that this was bad news.

** Becomes even more awesome when episode commentaries with the cast and crew reveal that their music budget was so low that almost every piece of music in the series was just a rearrangement of the opening theme. On a limited budget they managed to take one theme and create enough variations of it to fill a whole soundtrack. Somebody give the composer an award!

** On youtube there is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzu3IT590h4&ab_channel=GregXB3 compilation of cool lines said by Xanatos]], concluding with a picture saying "[[TakeThat Eat your heart out]], [[ComicBook/LexLuthor Lex]]". Guess who Luthor is quoting at one point in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.

** WordOfGod is that the Banshee does have some feelings for Rory/Cu Chullain, and there was a possibility this would have been explored further had the series continued.

* CompleteMonster: For the most part, this series has a well-deserved reputation for sympathetic and three-dimensional villains - [[MagnificentBastard Xanatos]] pets at least as many dogs as he kicks. There are, however, a few unrepentantly horrible ones.

* BaseBreaker: Some fans didn't like that [[spoiler:Brooklyn named his son "Nashville". Other fans are fine with it as it fits the American location theme]].
