Added DiffLines:

* BatmanGambit: In the car crusher, Hakon considers simply leaving Hudson to be killed by the machine. Hudson plays on his need for revenge and goads him into attacking instead. As expected, the axe becomes stuck in the crusher's floor and Hakon can't pull it free. Hudson gets to safety, while the crusher destroys the axe and forces Hakon away.


Added DiffLines:

* ItsPersonal:
** Both Hakon and Wolf want revenge against Goliath.
** Upon being told that Hakon is involved, Hudson becomes enraged. He calls the Viking a "clan slaughterer" and makes a point of taking him down.

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: After the grueling fight against Wolf and Hakon, Vinnie appears to take his revenge on Goliath. He winds up just shooting him in the face with a pie and leaving satisfied, leaving two very confused Gargoyles.

-->'''Hudson:''' Who in the world was that!?
-->'''Goliath:''' I havenít the slightest idea...
-->'''Hudson:''' ''(Wipes some cream from Goliathís face and tastes it)'' Mmmm... banana cream.


* '''Enemy(ies)''' : Wolf, Hakon

to:

* '''Enemy(ies)''' : '''Enemy(ies)''': Wolf, Hakon


Added DiffLines:

* DemonicPossession: Done by Hakon to Wolf to get the latter out of a bind. Wolf didn't appreciate this intervention.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Near the start of the episode when Vinnie Grigori picks up his gun Mr. Carter, its creator, Mr. Acme, informs him that who ever is on the receiving end of this giant bazooka-like gun "is going to get creamed!" It would turn out that this would be quite literal.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut:
** Vinnie's name, and Mr. Carter's, were both references to the television series ''Series/WelcomeBackKotter'' (1975-79): the characters of Mr. Kotter and Vinnie Barbarino.
** The man who creates Vinnie's gun is named "Mr. Acme". Acme is the name of the company featured in numerous ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts, especially those featuring Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote.
** When Hakon lectures his descendent on how to deal with Goliath and Hudson (of which includes having the disembodied Viking possess him), Wolf retorts to him "Dream on, [[WesternAnimation/CasperTheFriendlyGhost Casper]]!"


* UnknownRival: None of the gargoyles have any idea who Vinnie is, or why he's holding a grudge against them.

to:

* UnknownRival: None of the gargoyles have any idea who Vinnie is, or why he's holding a grudge against them. This works to his advantage, as he's able to get in front of Goliath, pick up his hilariously oversized gun, aim it, and deliver a small rant about getting even before taking the shot, all because Goliath and Hudson are so utterly bewildered by his appearance that they don't take any action to defend themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* ThemeTuneCameo: After Vinnie considers things are even with Goliath, he can be heard humming the show's main theme.

Added DiffLines:

* ICallItVera: Vinnie names his aforementioned weapon as "Mr. Carter".

Added DiffLines:

* RestrainedRevenge: As payback for all of the misfortune the gargoyle's have caused him, Vinnie custom-orders a ''huge'' gun, tracks down Goliath, and SHOOTS HIM IN THE FACE... with a ''banana cream pie''.


Added DiffLines:

* UnknownRival: None of the gargoyles have any idea who Vinnie is, or why he's holding a grudge against them.


* [[AxCrazy Battle Ax Crazy]]: Tonight, Wolf makes it literal thanks to his ancestors weapon. And of course there's Hakon himself.

* [[AxCrazy Battle Ax Crazy]]: Ax-Crazy]]: Tonight, Wolf makes it literal thanks to his ancestors weapon. And of course there's Hakon himself.



* BondOneLiner: Hudson delivers an ''epic'' one when he tricks Hakon into climbing into a car compressor with him while they are fighting, then having his axe lodged in the floor as its crushed into so much scrap. As it's the only thing tying him to the mortal realm, its destruction is equal to his own:
-->'''Hudson''': "Get an afterlife."



* PostMortemOneLiner: Hudson delivers an ''epic'' one when he tricks Hakon into climbing into a car compressor with him while they are fighting, then having his axe lodged in the floor as its crushed into so much scrap. As its the only thing tying him to the mortal realm, its destruction is equal to his own:

Added DiffLines:

* '''Story Arc''': The Pack (loosely), Hakon's Vengeance
* '''Characters''': Goliath, Hudson, Vinnie
* '''Enemy(ies)''' : Wolf, Hakon

Wolf is back and badder than ever with his newfound toy, a Viking Battle-Axe with mystical properties... containing the spirit of his long dead ancestor... the Viking Hakon. The two old foes of the Gargoyles have teamed up to take them down hard.

Meanwhile, background character Vinnie lugs around a weapon of enormous size, determined to get his own vengeance against the Gargoyles for their constantly making a mess of his life.

This Episode contains the following Tropes:
* ActingForTwo: Wolf and Hakon share the same voice actor, the very awesome Creator/ClancyBrown. Explained InUniverse as Wolf being Hakon's descendant.
* AnAxeToGrind: Hakon bound his soul to an axe to escape the cave he was trapped in. Once it's destroyed, his soul is forced to depart. Possibly forever, as he never made another appearance in the series.
* [[AxCrazy Battle Ax Crazy]]: Tonight, Wolf makes it literal thanks to his ancestors weapon. And of course there's Hakon himself.
* {{BFG}}: Vinnie's weapon could count as a Deconstruction of this, as its massive size makes it highly unwieldy and very heavy to lug around. And then there's the matter of its unusual choice of ammunition.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Vinnie's idea of revenge on Goliath was to hit him with a banana cream pie.
* DisproportionateRetribution: At first it looks like Vinnie is about to pull off one of these, given the sheer size of his weapon and the determination to get even with the gargoyles. But in the end completely Averted, he considers a banana cream pie to the face a suitable way to 'make things even' with Goliath and the Gargoyles.
* PostMortemOneLiner: Hudson delivers an ''epic'' one when he tricks Hakon into climbing into a car compressor with him while they are fighting, then having his axe lodged in the floor as its crushed into so much scrap. As its the only thing tying him to the mortal realm, its destruction is equal to his own:
** '''Hudson''': "Get an afterlife."
* SoulJar: Hakon's battle axe functions as this, as he tethered his spirit to it in order to leave the confines of Castle Wyvern. Its destruction may have resulted in his own permanent banishment from the mortal realm.
