Conspiracy theorists tend to see the Elite's plan of a combination of Xanatos Gambits and Gambit Speed Chase with the occasional Batman Gambit.

Isn't this arguably Parodied in the Phenias And Ferb episode where they build the Supercomputer?

Isn't both Gambit and Roulette in the same title kind of redundant?

Gambit has, at the very least, the connotation of being subject to strategy (eg playing poker) while roulette is intended as pure chance. Having both indicates that someone is attempting to strategize when playing a game of pure luck. I would consider Roulette Gambit a more appropriate title; I personally envision many competing gambits with random chance determining the victor while this way seems more like a luck-based plan.

I ran a Find and Replace of Xanatos for Gambit to accomodate the new trope name. Made sure to fix the Gargoyles entry afterwards.
