* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The theme song -- especially the guitar solo by Bluegrass.
* CultClassic: The series is best remembered for being "That show that wasn't WesternAnimation/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.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series was (and some people might argue it still is) ''HUGE'' in latin america, specially Mexico. It isn't rare seeing whole conventions stop for a couple of seconds if the theme starts playing only to sing along to it.
* HilariousInHindsight: The Silverhawks try to add human racial diversity in later members, but in truth the Mob is probably your better model for diversity albeit in a fantastical way. But either way through a modern lens the mob looks a lot more accepting to members than the Silverhawks are.
* 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}}.
