* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The theme song -- especially the guitar solo by Bluegrass.
* CultClassic: The series is arguably best remembered for being "That show that wasn't {{Thundercats}}."
* FridgeHorror: When you stop and think about it, the Silverhawks gave up a good chunk of their physical humanity in order to become the heroes that they are. Being a kids 80s show this could be seen as AngstWhatAngst at play, thus the obvious BodyHorror is not really touched on.
* HoYay: Between Commander Stargazer and Condor. There's something rather... affectionate about the way Condor calls Stargazer "Gaze" after all.
* TheScrappy: For some viewers, Copper Kid. He's not halfway as bad as other token children in other shows, though.
** Seymour and Zeke the Beak may fit the definition more, though for what it's worth they're nowhere near as annoying as Snarf and Snarfer from {{Thundercats}}.
* WildCard: Seymour. He's basically a TrueNeutral version of this trope. While he'd make runs for the Silverhawks in his taxi, usually for payment, he'd also provide taxi service for the mob. Above all, he's more concerned with [[OnlyInItForTheMoney making a living]] and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere saving his own hide]] rather than taking sides between the two factions.
