Elisa's Native American father, a cop like her and Derek.
- Arbitrary Skepticism: For 40 years, he turned his back on his father's beliefs. Even after his wife reported that magic exists and meeting with the Gargoyles face-to-face, he still refuses to acknowledge the existence of magic. Only at the very end does he pulls a last minute change of heart and saved Coyote the Trickster from Xanatos.
- Changed My Mind, Kid: He refuses to assist Elisa, Beth and the Gargoyles to save Coyote the Trickster. He shows up at the last minute to help our heroes.
- I Reject Your Reality: Peter doesn't believe in his father's beliefs 'til the very end, even with evidence to the contrary. Probably because he would have to admit that he was dead wrong for 40 years.
- Skeptic No Longer: At the end of Cloud Fathers, he admits he was wrong about rejecting his father's traditional ways.
- Voiced by: Nichelle Nichols (EN), Vittoria Febbi (IT)
Elisa's Nigerian-American mother.
- Good Parents: Helps Goliath to see his relationship with Angela from a human perspective; thereafter he acknowledges her as his daughter.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: While her husband, Peter, agrees with Elisa that Derek working for Xanatos would be a bad idea, Diane instead supports her son, and ultimately she's the one who gives him the final push and convinces him to work for Xanatos, which eventually led to Derek being mutated.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Says this word-for-word regarding spiders.

Peter's father. The two had a strained relationship when Peter ran away from home in 1960.
- Dead All Along: Throughout "Cloud Fathers", Elisa and Beth question Peter about visiting Carlos, which Peter refuses. At the episode's end, they visit Carlos's grave.
New York Civilians
The very cynical Assistant District Attorney and her husband.
- Cosmic Plaything: See Recurring Extra. New York theoretically has tens of thousands of inhabitants, but these two keep inadvertently penetrating The Masquerade.
- Fantastic Racism: Margot, towards gargoyles.
- Henpecked Husband: Brendan.
- Killed Off for Real: Demona smashes them while they've been turned into statues in City of Stone: Part 2. However, since they appear in later episodes, it seems this has been retconned.
- Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Margot after the existence of the Gargoyles is revealed. In "The Journey", she rants against Macbeth in a news debate saying that the Gargoyles are a threat to society, basing solely on her own unproven opinions. In fact, everything she says about them is followed by a scene that completely contradicts it.
- Mythology Gag: Going forwards, versions of them (named Brenda and Marco) once appeared in a season 2 episode of another Disney action series, W.I.T.C.H.; Greg Weisman worked on that season.
- Recurring Extra: The trope was, in fact, once named after them: 'Yuppie Couple.'
- Rich Bitch: Margot.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Both of them to an extent, but especially Margot.
- This was initially out of fear. However, after the gargoyles' existence is revealed, Margot embodies this trope in a far nastier way.
- In the comics, Brendan does rush to get a doctor when Goliath is seriously injured.
- Voiced by: Jeff Bennett (EN), Francesco Pezzuli (IT)
A strange man who, throughout the series, suffers various unnoticed misfortune because of the gargoyles, and eventually gets fed up.
- Catch Phrase: "Can you believe it?"
- Chekhov's Gunman: Downplayed, but in Vendetta we find out how many times the Gargoyles have, by complete accident, ruined his life.
- The Chew Toy: He was victim to a number of misfortunes over the course of the series, usually at the hands of the gargoyles.
- Cloudcuckoolander: His idea of revenge on Goliath was to hit him with a banana cream pie.
- I Call It "Vera": Mr. Carter.
- If I Wanted You Dead...: He could've killed Goliath, but decided there were better ways to get revenge than that.
- Minion with an F in Evil: During his brief stint as a Quarryman.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: A very obvious and good imitation of John Travolta.
- Only Sane Man: For all his abnormalities, Vinnie is surprisingly rational compared to other antagonists. For one thing, he's one of the few people in the show who doesn't let his need for vengeance consume him. When joined up with the Quarrymen, he's the only one with notable reservations about killing the Gargoyles and ultimately saves Goliath and Elisa.
- Put on a Bus: He leaves to take on a security job in Japan at the end of "The Journey."
- Revenge: The only person in the series to get any satisfaction from it. Mainly because he moves on.
- Shout Out: An imitation of Travolta with a weapon named Mr. Carter? Hmm...
- Unknown Rival: Goliath had absolutely no idea who he was.
- Weapon of Choice: A large and heavy bazooka called "Mr. Carter," eventually revealed to only fire banana cream pies.

The captain in charge of Elisa's precinct.
- Da Chief: Hard, but understanding.
- Fair Cop: A police captain who's easy on the eyes.
- Hero of Another Story: While the rest of the cast is in Gargoyles, Captain Chavez is in Hill Street Blues. Aside from breaking up particle-beam smuggling rings, of course.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She's a pretty good person to work for.
- Voiced by: Keith David (EN), Lucio Saccone (IT)
A police officer in the NYPD and a friend of Elisa's.
- Ascended Extra: He was originally supposed to just be a generic, nameless cop for Elisa to interact with in the premiere, but Greg Weisman liked Keith David's performance so much that he opted to keep bringing the character back, which led to a name, a personality, and slightly more to do.
- Donut Mess with a Cop: He's seen eating donuts in "Temptation," though the sight of Brooklyn gliding in the air on a motorcycle convinces him to go off sugar.
- Nice Guy: Consistently nice, and does not get upset with Elisa when he realizes in "Bash" that he's just her rebound guy.
- Recurring Extra: He starts out as one, but gradually gets slightly larger roles in the series, culminating in his date with Elisa in "Masque" and "Bash."
- Repetitive Name: Inspired by a former classmate of Greg Weisman's.
- Romantic Runner-Up: To Elisa.
- Voiced by: Peter Scolari (EN), Enrico Di Troia (IT)
Halcyon Renard's right-hand man and confidant. Smart, capable, but not all that loyal—the near-perfect employee. No blood relation to Owen Burnett.
- Conscience Makes You Go Back: Despite betraying Renard, Vogel couldn't bring himself to leave the old man to die.
- Contagious Heroism: Working with the moral Halcyon Renard and Goliath's good character has rubbed off on him.
- Everyone Has Standards: It's heavily implied that despite being The Starscream at the time, the Contagious Heroism above had already gotten him used to Renard's policy of taking responsibility for his actions, such as saying how it was his own fault for not putting Goliath in a more secure prison.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: For a long while, but he got better.
- Identical Stranger: He looks like a Palette Swap of Owen Burnett. Subverted in that, they aren't strangers—Owen is a persona of Puck's based on Vogel.
- The Starscream: Unlike Owen to Xanatos, Vogel has no problem with turning on Renard when offered enough money. However, when Fox's plan to sabotage Fortress-2 threatens to kill Renard and the staff in Cyberbiotics tower, he's quick to turn back to Renard's side.
- The Stoic: Although less so than Owen.
- Yes-Man: Shows some signs of this. "You're a genius, sir," indeed.
A civilian often seen jogging around the city.

Morgan's partner on the police force.
- Recurring Extra: Seen throughout the series, usually in gags.
- Voiced by: Robert Ito
- Does Not Like Guns: After operating on Elisa's gunshot wound, he can be heard muttering "Guns..." to himself.
- One-Shot Character: One of the few one-shot characters to appear prior to the World Tour arc and probably the only one from the first season, quite unusual given the series' love of reusing characters. Indeed, the Series Bible directly suggests using Dr. Sato in any plot where a doctor would be required, but this never happened. He did make a return in the comic continuation.
- Secret Keeper: In the comics he becomes this for both the Manhattan Clan and the Labyrinth Clan after first helping to prevent Goliath from bleeding to death after Thailog stabbed him, then later when he checks on Maggie, who got injured in Thailog's attack at the Labyrinth, and discovers she's pregnant.

A New York City news anchor.
Children of Oberon
Children of Oberon In General
Also called the Third Race, because they evolved after gargoyles and humans, emerging from the magical energies of the planet. The Children all have powerful magic and functional immortality, and are ruled by Lord Oberon and Queen Titania. All fairies, gods and great spirits from folklore and mythology are Children of Oberon. Their homeland is the magical island of Avalon. Note that they aren't Oberon's literal children; they're called that because he's their pater familias. Word of God is that Oberon and Titania have one son and one daughter together, and Oberon also has some children by human women (including Merlin).
According to Word of God, the Third Race used to be known as the Children of Mab (Mab is Oberon's crazy mother who is now Sealed Evil in a Can). If the series had continued, the gargoyles would have had to help Oberon and Titania combat a freed Mab at some point.
- Alien Non-Interference Clause: Roughly one thousand years ago, Oberon decreed that the Third Race is forbidden from meddling directly in human affairs. While Oberon's Children are bound to obey this law, it's still possible for them (and Oberon himself) to find loopholes.
- All Myths Are True: All of them exist in human mythology from all around the world (Banshee, Anansi, Coyote, Odin) or in human literature (Oberon, Titania, Puck). While the myths capture the general character, in this universe they aren't neccessarily entirely accurate.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: As Oberon's Children are closer to The Fair Folk personality-wise, this isn't too surprising. They appear to have some form of ethical code, but to humans and gargoyles alike they are a Wild Card more than anything.
- Cold Iron: Their main weakness; their magic cannot directly effect any iron construct, but creative members of the Third Race can use magic on the environment to get rid of it (AKA: shockwave iron robots with a mighty wind).
- The Fair Folk: Given their amoral behavior, powers and vulnerability to iron, there's no better way to describe the Children of Oberon.
- Flight: Oberon and a few of his children are capable of flying. Though it's unclear whether the other can't or simply chose not to.
- Immortality: You won't see any of them dying of old age anytime soon. While they can be slain, it is extremely difficult to do so.
- Land of Faerie: They all come from Avalon, but they've been banished for centuries (until midway through Season 2) to live in various places in the mortal world- Banshee lived underneath the Irish barrows, Anansi lived in an abandoned African Lost City, etc. Note that even Puck, who likes living among humans, was horrified at the prospect of never seeing Avalon again.
- One Myth to Explain Them All: Nearly all mythic beings in the Gargoyles universe—notably excepting the Gargoyles themselves—are Oberon's Children, and considered part of the same species. That includes the Norse and Egyptian gods, the Fae of British folklore, and several spirits from Native American mythology.
- Physical God: Most of them, some even being the actual beings from mythology.
- Pure Magic Being: According to Greg Weisman.
- Shapeshifters Do It for a Change: Word of God has it that the Third Race in Gargoyles have this kind of sexuality. They didn't start out with any concept of gender or sex, but they've "learned" about sexuality from humans, and can assume whatever form they please. Gargoyles also treats the myth of Loki and Sleipnir (see above) as a true story. But then, Loki's one of the Third Race, too.
- Super Toughness: According to Word of God, they can be killed, but it's extremely difficult, as they can recover from blows that would otherwise be considered fatal.
- Took a Level in Kindness: You know how capricious and manipulative they appear now? Word of God is that they were actually worse before being exiled. Living among mortals was meant to mellow them out.
- Unexplained Recovery: Banshee and Anansi are both apparently destroyed in their debut episodes, but show up at the Gathering none the worse for wear.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: More them a few Children of Oberon proved to be capable of changing their forms. Wordof God claims that the Children don't have a "true form", only a form they are comfortable with. There are some exceptions, though, such as Odin always having an empty eye socket (at least until he gets his MacGuffin back).

The all-powerful and rather arrogant Lord of the Third Race, likewise taken from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night's Dream."
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Fittingly enough, his skin is royal blue (albeit a fairly light shade). Done deliberately to avoid the Unfortunate Implications of associating Oberon with a specific real-life ethnicity.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Grows to giant size in an attempt to take Xanatos and Fox's son to Avalon.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: The reason his 'Children' obey isn't out of respect for traditional authority: it's because he can make them.
- Bad Boss: Zig-zagged. He's polite to the Weird Sisters, but very dismissive towards Puck.
- Badass Cape: Wears a big white one. It also doubles as a portal, as Brooklyn and Angela found out the hard way.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: Oberon's morals are quite inhuman. He's extremely polite while in a good mood, but he'll nonchalantly murder people simply over what he sees as trespassing on his land. He gave his word about the Gargoyles being allowed to stay in Avalon if he could be defeated, and he kept it gracefully. But by his next appearance in "The Gathering," despite promising that his magic would not harm the Gargoyles, he has no problem finding loopholes in that agreement. Despite his claim about not compromising, he does compromise by the end of the episode. He also has an interesting definition of not being heartless; essentially telling Xanatos and Fox they have one whole hour with their new born son before coming to take him away forever.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: In "Ill Met By Moonlight", he nerfs himself by his own choice to give Goliath and the Avalon Clan a chance.
- Cold Iron: It is his bane. Whether being stabbed by an iron harpoon or the knell of an iron bell, he is weakened by both. That said, he can stand up to such attacks better than any of the Childen; Word of God is that the iron harpoon would have killed a lesser member of the Third Race. Oberon was merely impaired, and, although reduced to a withered shell of his former self, was still more than powerful enough to fight off all resistance.
- Control Freak: His magic forbids the Third from (directly) meddling in human affairs, he banished them all from Avalon for a thousand years, and then after that thousand years are up he summons them all back and forbids them to go back to the mortal world. Defying or challenging his authority is, unsurprisingly, a great way to piss him off.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: After spending most "Ill Met By Moonlight" toying with the Gargoyles by manipulating the island of Avalon to attack them, they manage to goad him into fighting personally. He turns himself into diamond and swiftly defeats them in hand to hand combat without them managing to scratch him.
- Deadpan Snarker: Not to the same degree as some of his children, but he will occasionally make some dry quips.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu??: "Ill Met by Moolight," sees the immortal fae lord driven to his knees by the sound of a bell. However, this is averted in "The Gathering" because nothing his opponents use has any serious effect on him. The worst of it is hitting him with an iron harpoon. It clearly hurts, but it also makes him really mad...
- Dynamic Entry: Oberon makes his entry by making lots of rumbling noises and raising a platform made of rock for him to stand on, complete with lightning flashes.
- Exact Words: He swears to make himself no stronger than a "child" in his contest against Goliath and the Avalon clan. Goliath notes this means he is as strong as any "child of Oberon" which will still put him in the low level Physical God-tier.
- The Fair Folk: Their Lord, in fact, which comes with the dissembling behavior, magic, and strange morality.
- Graceful Loser: Surprisingly so. While he will do anything to win, if you manage to actually defeat him, he will prove himself quite cordial and respectful.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: He's easily angered by shows of defiance.
- Happily Married: To Titania. That hasn't always been the case, though, as their relationship used to be rocky enough for the two to divorce a thousand years ago. Shortly before beginning the Gathering, they re-married to their mutual delight.
- Immortal Immaturity: Word of God has stated that he was actually relatively humble compared to many of his people before banishing them from Avalon. Of course, by the time of the series, many of them learned greater humility. Believing that he had no lessons to learn, Oberon had remained largely the same.
- It's Personal: Oberon seems to take Puck's ignoring the Gathering much more personal than the Banshee doing so. While he was content having the Weird sisters bring him the latter, Oberon personally goes to search for Puck, and is a great deal harsher in punishing him for his defiance. Puck is the only one of Oberon's children explicitly stated to be his servant, so that might have played into it as well.
- Jedi Mind Trick: Oberon pulls this off and pulls David's pistol out of his hands in almost the exact same manner in which Vader did to Han.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Oberon can be quite polite and reasonable as long as someone or something isn't riling him up. However, if he perceives someone is challenging his authority he can become quite difficult.
- Judge, Jury, and Executioner: Oberon's word is law over the Third Race... and he is not a merciful lord.
- The Juggernaut: Xanatos, his family and the Manhattan Clan tried everything they had at hand to prevent him from kidnapping Alex, including swords, force fields, flying robots, highly-powered lasers, magic and even an iron harpoon in his chest. All for nothing (and the iron harpoon only made things worse!).
- Just the First Citizen: Oberon titles himself as "Lord" of the Third Race, rather than assuming a monarch's title as his mother, Queen Mab did. According to Greg Weisman, the title is Oberon's attempt to be more egalitarian than his tyrannical mother.
- Knight Templar: Very zealous in his moral code, and arguably hypocritical. See Well-Intentioned Extremist below as well.
- Large Ham: "Oberon does not compromise. Oberon COMMANDS!" - Not too surprising, given that he is the lord of a race of superpowered shapeshifters, who are nearly all large hams themselves.
- Mystical White Hair: The Lord of the Third Race, Oberon has white hair.
- No Hero to His Valet: Puck is none too happy about serving Oberon, and would rather hang out on Earth than go back to Avalon. All though this could just be Puck disliking servitude in general, rather than Oberon in particular.
- Not So Above It All: Puck states that not even Oberon is above bribery, as he intended to use the Phoenix Gate to avoid the Gathering a bit longer.
- Physical God: Possibly the single most powerful being yet seen in the Gargoyles universe. There appears to be no limit to the scope or range of his magic and is effectively immortal.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: He has shades of it. He is constantly dressed in fancy battle armour, and considers Odin and the Banshee fighting at the Gathering to be marvellous sport. Oberon will also show respect to people putting up a good fight (if they don't push it too much) and is a surprisingly Graceful Loser. Word of God states that the Gathering will usually involve small battles and contests of various sorts.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Of a sort. According to Word of God, he is far better than his insane mother, was considered highly benevolent by the standards of a thousand years ago, did banish the Third Race with the intent of them learning humility, is generally thought of as a good king and has shown a willingness to forgive and compromise as long as no one is riling him up.
- Remembered I Could Fly: When he initially tried to attack Xanatos's tower, he became enraged at the idea of them trying to keep him out (and succeeding with the help of a force field), causing him to become gigantic and attempt to just smash through. It isn't helped by interference from the Gargoyles and Halcyon Renard. It seems as though he'll fail when Renard manages to surround him in an energy cage, until Oberon calms down enough to realize he's not using good judgement, and simply shrinks down to pass through the bars, conjures freezing rain to keep the Gargoyles and Renard's robots and airship off his back, and simply phases through the ground around the tower (bypassing the force field completely).
- Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Oberon decreed that his magic would not affect the Gargoyles. When he faced them down, however, he was more than happy to use magic against them, just indirectly. "My decrees are mine to interpret!"
- Third-Person Person: Oberon doesn't constantly refer to himself that way, but he will tap into this when being dramatic.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Oberon isn't especially clever with his magic, relying largely on brute force. As indicated by the Remembered I Could Fly example, this works so often he's hardly ever needed to think when it comes to dealing with an obstacle.
- The Usurper: According to Word of God, he overthrew his mother Queen Mab to become the leader of the Third Race. He's considered an improvement.
- Villainous Cheekbones: Very sharp, although the degree to which he counts as a villain is debatable.
- Villain Respect: He does show it when he meets someone who would dare challenge him. When David Xanatos dared to face him for trying to take his son, Oberon commended him for facing impossible odds for it.
- World's Strongest Man: Being a Physical God, Oberon is the most powerful force encountered in the series. He was never even defeated or tired out and would've taken baby Alexander if Titania hadn't ended the conflict.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: According to Greg Weisman, from his point of view taking Alex was the right thing to do, seeing him the same way one would see a child potentially crippled.

Another powerful member of the Third Race. Titania married Oberon at one point, but divorced him sometime before the tenth century. They reconcile their relationship 1000 years later.
- Abusive Parents: Downplayed. She loves Fox and openly demonstrates her care for her, but she's also willing to put her daughter through ridiculous danger and emotional torment all in the aims of sparking her magical potential. When this trait is revealed, Fox is much less friendly to her mother.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: She has a sea-green complexion in her true Fair Folk form.
- Bare Your Midriff: In her true form, her outfit shows off her stomach. In her true form, she no longer has to act or dress like a human grandmother.
- Break the Haughty: She used to be a lot more arrogant and cruel before her banishment.
- The Chessmaster: The events of "The Gathering" occurred according to her designs.
- Evil Redhead: Downplayed. "Evil" is debatable, but Antagonistic Redhead, at least considering the grief she out her daughter through.
- The Fair Folk: Their Queen, and very magical and tricky indeed.
- Fairy Sexy: One of the fair folk, and quite a knockout.
- Fiery Redhead: Zigzagged. As Titania, she was known to be quite arrogant in her youth before maturing, but still has a playful side. Not so much as Anastasia who has a different hair color and temperament.
- Happily Married: To Oberon, and to Halcyon, before she tired of him. Both men have a very high opinion of her, even while separated.
- Hartman Hips: She's the whole package, but has very prominent hips.
- The High Queen: As she observes sarcastically, Oberon's authority is not absolute as long as he's married.
- Hot Witch: She's pretty vain, and has exceptional powers of magic.
- Impossible Hour Glass Figure: Titania has an impossibly thin waist given her build. Then again, she probably can take any form she desires.
- Interspecies Romance: She (a fey) was married to Halycon (a human) before she tired of him.
- Manipulative Bitch: At times.
- It's heavily hinted that, if not outright stated, that between the events of "Ill Met By Moonlight" and "The Gathering," Titania was telling all involved what they needed to hear in order to make the end justify the means. In the former, her influence arranges for the court of Princess Katharine to remain on Avalon, and in the latter, over the course of the prolonged battle with Oberon that she basically instigated, Fox's latent magical powers finally surface, which means that Alex can remain with her and David, while Puck (who doesn't want to go to the Gathering, anyway) can be left to stay, caring for and training Alex in magic from the get-go.
- MayDecember Romance: Double subverted. As Anastasia, it was implied she was younger than the elderly looking Halycon, but flashbacks showed that the former was equally young and handsome when they first met. However, then it's revealed that she is Queen Titania, a member of the Fair Folk. Meaning that she's way older than him.
- Ms. Fanservice: Word of God classifies her as this, and proud enough to flaunt it off.
- Noble Demon: She's manipulative, but she has surprisingly benign ends for her actions like saving Katharine and her court from being killed by Oberon and allowing them to stay on Avalon.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: Per Word of God, the reason she dresses like she does is "She's got it, she flaunts it."
- She's Got Legs: Her outfit blatantly highlights her very long legs.
- Took a Level in Kindness: According to Oberon, she was far nastier before her thousand-year exile.
- The Woman Behind the Man: She's a good deal more cunning than Oberon.Titania: On Avalon, Oberon's word is law.
Katherine: Does that mean he's always right?
Titania: Not while he's married.
- Women Are Wiser: Though, bizarrely, Oberon claims she used to be a Royal Brat, which is why he divorced her. Word of God says that she underwent a lot of Character Development in their 1,001-year separation, while Oberon stayed more or less the same.
- Voiced by: Brent Spiner (EN), Vittorio Stagni (IT)
One of the Children of Oberon described in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer's Night's Dream," a prankster who relishes his independence, and resents being Oberon's servant.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After Oberon banished him from Avalon for eternity and strips him of his powers, Puck begs him to reconsider, stating he'll do anything.
- Almighty Janitor: He's a powerful fae but in the hierarchy of the Third Race, he holds the rank of Oberon's servant (something he does not enjoy).
- Batman Gambit: When properly motivated, Puck can come up with brilliant schemes that rely on how he predicts people will react under certain circumstances.
- Becoming the Mask: He loved being Owen so much he risked defying Oberon just so he could hang out with Xanatos and Fox for a few more centuries, or at least long enough for his employers to live out their lives. Later, it gets deconstructed when Oberon forces him to be Owen forever. His first reaction to this is a Big "NO!", almost immediately followed by Owen's trademark stoic acceptance.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: Tries to get Oberon to let him stay with Xanatos and Fox a little longer, for their lifespan at least. Since he managed to piss Oberon off so much, he bars him from Avalon forever and forbids him from using magic except when protecting or instructing Xanatos's son. Puck later finds out that's a pretty damn big loophole and starts teaching Alexander before he can even talk. During "The Mirror" Demona tries to force the trickster to do her bidding. It goes about as well as you'd expect.
- Benevolent Genie:
- Xanatos amused Puck with some unspecified Noodle Incident, and Puck chose to grant him one favor in return. No tricks.
- "The Mirror" plays with this trope by having Puck act as a benevolent genie not to Demona the wish-maker, but her would-be victims of wish-induced genocide. When she orders Puck to destroy "that human" Elisa, and "get rid of all humans," he deliberately misconstrues her meaning by turning them into gargoyles so he doesn't have to kill them. He also uses his magic to avoid causing serious harm to Goliath's Clan when Demona turns her wrath on them, mostly.
- Berserk Button: Puck's is only pushed once, in his first appearance, but the consequences are monumental. Imprison him? Well you are trying to extract wishes from a Jackass Genie, so good luck with that, but that's just part of the game and its not like he isn't used to servitude. Tell him to go away when he is offering you actual help? That's just rude and he won't be happy.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Puck might be affable and a bit of Cloud Cuckoo Lander, but he has a keen mind, a love for chaos, and quite a bit of magic at his disposal.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: Like the rest of Oberon's Children, Puck's set of morals doesn't seem to revolve around good and bad. He gleefully messes with humans and gargoyles alike, though he appears to have a certain degree of fondness for humanity. While Puck isn't explicitly benevolent, he is fairly affable, albeit tricky, and not particularly malevolent just for the heck if it. He also honours his deal with Xanatos and doesn't seem to mind Demona manhandling him too much, but interestingly enough is severely pissed off after Demona rejects his offer of repayment.
- Bored with Insanity: "The Puck has played many roles over the millennia ...but never that of Straight Man."
- Break the Haughty: Puck's detached, wise-cracking persona absolutely shatters for a moment, after Oberon banished him from Avalon and stripped him of his powers. He even pleads with him to reconsider.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: A mild form. Puck usually does things for his own amusement and is generally fine with working some harmless (by comparison) mischief. As "Future Tense" and "Possession" highlight, Puck can be a brilliant schemer when it comes down to it, with Goliath usually unable to figure out what's happening until Puck spells it out to him.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: As befits both a fae and a trickster, it can be difficult for humans to follow his train of thought.
- Cold Iron: Like the rest of the Third Race, Puck is vulnerable to iron, which is exploited by Demona to force him into her service.
- Deadpan Snarker: Puck has a snide sense of humor, best shown in "The Mirror", where he throws sarcasm and backtalk at Demona at every opportunity.Demona: I am too vulnerable during the day. I don't want to turn to stone anymore.Puck: Of course, you want to stroll down 5th Avenue in the sunshine. I'm sure you'll fit right in.
- Eye Beams: When channelling his powers, Puck's eyes will start to glow ominously, and eye beams will often follow.
- Exact Words: Puck is very skilled in using people's exact words against them, as Demona can testify.
- The Fair Folk: He's manipulative and very unpredictable, with most of his actions dictated by his (potentially dangerous) sense of humor.
- Friendly Enemy: He's usually in service to one of the gargoyles' adversaries, but he likes having the gargoyles around and bears them no personal animosity. It's understandably slightly one-sided, as Goliath is well aware whom he is dealing with, and is naturally a bit wary of him.
- Great Gazoo: "The Mirror" shows him capable of affecting the bodies and minds of every mortal on Manhattan Island - using Titania's Mirror as an amplifier. Although he has limits (which is fortunate, because one of Demona's first commands was to eliminate all of humanity.)
- I Just Want to Be Free: He's come to enjoy his freedom that came with his thousand-year-exile and he's not looking forward to returning to Avalon (and by extension Oberon's service) anytime soon.
- It Amused Me: A high source of motivation for Puck to do anything is whether or not he will have a good time doing so, and in general seems to have a distaste for boring and humorless people. He puts up with Demona after figuring out how to make things more entertaining (for himself, mind you), he ditched Anastasia and Renard as employers because they were too boring, and while genuinely helping the Gargoyles in "Possession" he does so in an overly complex manner because it's fun.Goliath: Puck! I should've known. But why this subterfuge?Puck: Hey, I live for subterfuge!
- Jackass Genie: Demona offended him immediately - no surprises there - which unleashed this side of him. Even his parting gift was a little masterpiece of nastiness.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Given his own propensity for Loophole Abuse, it's only fitting that Oberon eventually gives Puck a taste of his own medicine. Due to Puck ignoring the Gathering on the basis that he wanted to stay with Xanatos and Fox as Owen, Oberon eventually obliges by exiling Puck for eternity from Avalon, and restricting him to only using his magic when it comes to protecting and training Alexander.
- Liberty Over Prosperity: Would rather stay in the mortal world than return to the paradisiacal Avalon, but doesn't want to be restricted from Avalon, either. He seems to prize his freedom and independence more than anything. In fact, he only voluntarily serves one person, Xanatos, who just managed to impress him that much.
- Literal Genie: During "The Mirror," where he's bound in iron and compelled to obey his summoner, but free to (mis)interpret their commands as he wants.Puck: Don't worry. I will do exactly as you ask.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Puck has long flowing hair and is fairly easy on the eyes.
- Loophole Abuse: If you somehow manage to trap Puck into your services, you need to make your orders inescapably clear. Even then, he'll find a way around it. In Demona's case, he "gets rid of all humans" by turning them into gargoyles. When Oberon forbids him from using any magic except when protecting and instructing Xanatos' son, he starts teaching the kid before he's old enough to talk.
- Loveable Rogue: He thoroughly enjoys causing chaos and puts Goliath through a nightmarish ordeal for utterly selfish reasons, but Puck goes out of his way to avoid killing humans when Demona orders him to, turning them into Gargoyles instead (not that he was keen on helping her in the first place, but still). He is also shown to have a sense of honour (sort of); he honours his deal with Xanatos and is shown to help the Gargoyles in "Possession", albeit in the most complex manner he could think of.
- Manipulative Bastard: Shown in "Future Tense" and even more so in "Possession", where he skilfully plays both, the heroes and the villain like a fiddle all the way through, in order to achieve his goal.
- Master of Illusion: Puck turns out to be quite nifty with illusions as "Future Tense" illustrates. His Bad Future plot during the Avalon arc was a nightmare that drove Goliath to the brink of insanity. It also counts as a Batman Gambit to get the Phoenix Gate. Goliath figures him out at the crucial moment, leading to a Big "NO!" followed by "I was sooo close!". Even afterwards he can't resist a final jab at Goliath, suggesting that it might have been a prophecy instead of a nightmare, and then refusing to tell him which.Puck: Oh, was it a dream or a prophecy?
Goliath: I must know!
Puck: M-hm. Like I'd tell you.
- Mystical White Hair: Puck sports long white hair, and is a powerful fae.
- Near-Villain Victory: The one time he directly antagonized Goliath was in a grand scheme to make the gargoyle give him the Phoenix Gate. His Bad Future illusion drove Goliath to the point where he offered the Phoenix Gate to Puck (disguised as Elisa) but failed at the last second because "Elisa" kept insisting that Goliath physically give her the Gate rather than simply picking it up, tipping him off that something was wrong.
- Obstructive Code of Conduct: Becomes a plot-point in Future Tense, where Oberon's laws prevent him from simply taking the Phoenix Gate and instead require the owner to literally hand it over to him. Additionally, since the Gathering Puck can now only use his powers when he is protecting or teaching Xanatos' son.
- Rhymes on a Dime: Rhyming apparently helps focusing his magic, though he isn't too formal about it.Puck: Humans love a battle hearty, so does Puck! Come on, let's party!
- Shapeshifter Mode Lock: As of "The Gathering", Puck is now trapped in the form of Owen, unable to access his powers, unless he is training or protecting young Alexander. So speaks Oberon.
- Shapeshifting Trickster: Being a Child of Oberon, he is a natural shapeshifter, and able to use that ability to great effect in both, "Future Tense" and "Possession", and loves causing trouble in general.
- Spell My Name with a "The": He will occasionally refer to himself as "the Puck", though it doesn't seem like he did so out of an over-inflated ego. Interestingly enough, Oberon once referred to Puck like that as well, giving off the impression "Puck" is more of a title than a name.
- Take a Third Option: He tried to anyway. Unwilling to attend the Gathering just yet, but not wanting to draw Oberon's wrath on himself either, Puck tried to persuade Oberon to "forget about the child and put off the Gathering for a few more centuries". Unfortunately Oberon was too annoyed by the whole ordeal (Puck's antics included), that he wasn't willing to compromise.
- The Trickster: Modelled after his namesake from Shakespeare's play, Puck is one of four tricksters introduced in the series, and by far the most prominent of them.
- Third-Person Person: Like Oberon, Puck every now and then talks about himself this way. Maybe it's a Third Race thing.Puck: Puck is many things, but never a poor guest.
- Took a Level in Kindness: He can be quite manipulative when he has a goal in mind, and he loves causing chaos, but he's still friendly enough to hold a conversation with, and given the antics the other Children of Oberon can swing themselves up to, Puck's caused mischief is relatively harmless. This is due to Oberon banishing him and all the other Children for about a millennia to mellow them out. A throwaway line from Titania that the banishment was enough for "even Puck to mend his manners" indicates that he was a whole lot worse prior to the banishment.
- Troll: In "The Mirror" Puck spends the entire episode messing around with Demona for his personal amusement, by purposefully misinterpreting her wishes, with her never coming anywhere close to her original goal.
- Wild Card: While being affable in general, Puck is extremely unpredictable, and may turn against you if it suits his plans, then come around and help you moments later.
- You Called Me "X"; It Must Be Serious: The only time Puck respectfully addresses Oberon as "my Lord" is after the latter has stripped him of his powers, and Puck tries to plead with him, showing how much the punishment stung. To be clear, we are talking about the fae who previously referred to his king as "Big Daddy Oberon".
- Voiced by: Kath Soucie
Three powerful Children of Oberon who interfere in the series from time to time, particularly where Demona and Macbeth are concerned, loosely adapted from the Three Witches of Macbeth as well as various Three Goddess myths. Their goals and motives are their own.
- Absolute Cleavage: In their default outfits, as well as their fashion model guise, their tops show a lot of cleavage.
- The Ageless: True of most of the Children of Oberon, but it's a plot point during "Avalon."Archmage: [Revenge] will take... some time.
Selene: What is 'time' to an immortal?
- Appearance Is in the Eye of the Beholder: The Weird Sisters, who all take the same form at the same time, appearing as a trio of creepy little girls, old crones, aged female gargoyles, or voluptuous young 20-somethings, as befits who they are speaking to at the time, though they can still be told apart apart by hair color (blonde, black, white). The little girls are seen by the Manhattan clan, the old crones are seen by Macbeth and Duncan, and the old gargoyle hags are seen by Demona. Meanwhile the 20-somethings are their preferred form, seen by the audience and other Children of Oberon as well as any characters not implied to see them differently (although humans will see them in period/job appropriate attire). Word of God has stated that only the Third Race and the audience ever see them for what they truly are.
- Beauty Is Bad: They're attractive (in an mystic-fey-like manner) and definitely manipulative (again, they are fey).
- Can't Argue with Elves: At the very least, they're convincing enough that other characters don't really bother to actually engage them with facts and just get to fighting.
- The Chessmaster: They've been more or less running Demona and Macbeth's lives for over 900 years, and Word of God is that they were playing the Archmage for a fool as well.
- Contralto of Danger: Selene, making her sound menacing and seductive, and Luna, making her sound ancient and mystical. Phoebe, however, has a rather high-pitched voice.
- Creepy Triplets: Mysterious at best, downright unsettling at worst.
- The Dividual: Subverted. It happens very rarely, but every so often one of them will act independently of the others. Seline, the Sister of Vengeance, gives Macbeth the tool he needs to kill Duncan as messily and painfully as possible, one of the rare times she's unaccompanied by the others. Word of God is that each represents a distinct motivation (Fate, Vengeance, and Grace) and they can even be in conflict with each other (explaining their sometime fickleness).
- Dragons With An Agenda: To the Archmage during "Avalon." by leading him into thinking he was in charge when he was a pawn in their scheme. Naturally, they are also more powerful than him.
- The Fair Folk: They are not malevolent without cause, but they're easily offended. Sometimes they'll advise other characters against 'evil' actions, but at other times they're pretty wicked themselves.
- Evil Is Petty: Or Blue-and-Orange Morality is petty, possibly. It was their job to keep everybody out of Avalon until Oberon returned, and the Magus caused them to fail. They even agree to the Archmage's thousand-year plan for revenge, just to settle their score with the Magus. They go out of their way to go after him when their plan is working.
- Gambit Roulette: Their plan to use Demona, Macbeth and the Archmage to regain control of Avalon would be one, except that the Sisters seem to have some ability to see the future and therefore could predict where their pawns would end up.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Of at least the first half of the series, as their manipulations of Demona, Macbeth and the Archmage set the stage for a lot of the conflicts throughout the thousand year time skip and into the present day. It's implied both in universe and via Word of God that they may be the true Big Bad of the series, however their motives are so inscrutable that whether they will actually ascend to the position or remain in the background manipulating others, only time will tell.
- Hair Colors: The only way to tell them apart. Phoebe has golden hair (and is the least malevolent one), symbolizing Grace; Luna has Mystical White Hair and is the most detached, symbolizing Fate; and Seline is a Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette who symbolizes Vengeance.
- The Hecate Sisters: As a reference to the Maiden/Mother/Crone mythology, they appear in disguises of various ages. Demona sees them as three elderly female gargoyles, Macbeth sees them as three elderly human women, Goliath sees them as three little human girls, etc.
- Word of God says that, depending on which sister is in ascendance at the moment, they are the three Graces, the three Fates or the three Furies, but also that they always have aspects of all three identities.
- Hijacked by Ganon: The Archmage takes over their plan to re-gain Avalon and uses it for his own purpoes. It is also subverted in that, by doing so, he was still helping them achieve their goals anyway.
- Hive Mind: They're less three separate beings and more one being with three distinct aspects.
- Hot Witch: Well, Witches.
- Mystical White Hair: All three of them are highly mystical; Luna is probably the most mystical of the three, and has white hair.
- Pyrrhic Victory: While they get the Magus to go all out in their fight that ultimately proves fatal in his old age he still manages to beat them by binding them with iron chains, keeping them from going to aid the Archmage. As well as still proving he's the better magician regardless and that they, fey creatures, have to live with the knowledge that a human bested them; an old, frail, human that lacked a magic book to boost his power.
- Talking to Herself: Kath Soucie voices all three of them.
- Theme Naming: All three of their names are those of moon goddesses.
- We Are as Mayflies: Although they acknowledge in "City of Stone" that human lives have some value, they're pretty casual about manipulating mortals and placing them in danger.
- Wild Card: Any time the Sisters appear, all bets are off as to whether they'll be good guys, bad guys or observers.

A trickster Child of Oberon (featured in American Indian mythology) who frequently assumes the form of a raven. He has his eyes set on conquering Queen Florence Island.
- A Form You Are Comfortable With: He takes on a gargoyle-like form to win Goliath and Angela's trust.
- Blade on a Stick: Pro-forma, duels Natsilane with a spear, namely one with an axe head below the tip, making it resemble a sort of halberd.
- Deadpan Snarker: He's very snarky, especially to his enemies.
- Karma Houdini: He gets off scot-free and is later seen attending the Gathering.
- Manipulative Bastard: He plays Goliath like a harp throughout most of the episode in which he appears, making him believe Grandmother is a villain and he himself a persecuted gargoyle.
- Pragmatic Villainy: He tried to use Goliath to get rid of the remaining humans of this island for him, because fighting is just "so messy", and indeed would have been fine with Natsilane not believing in him at all, as that would have meant he wouldn't have to duel with him. Eventually, as Goliath prepares to confront him, Raven tells the gargoyle instead to calm down, as he had no quarrel with him, even though being a Child of Oberon he easily could have defeated him.
- Ravens and Crows: He's one of the most famous supernatural depictions. Oddly enough, he appears to have bat-like spiked wings in humanoid form.
- Shapeshifting Trickster: As a Child of Oberon he is a natural shapeshifter, and one of the more malevolent trickster figures, which is both highlighted in his debut episode.
- The Trickster: A malevolent version, driving people from his island simply for the joy of disrupting things.
- Underestimating Badassery: He didn't think much of Natsilane, a college student with no experience with the supernatural or being a chief. Despite some initial hesitation, Natsilane ended up defeating him in their fight (thanks to the magic relics Natsilane obtained).
- Voiced by: Amentha Dymally
A benevolent Child of Oberon who protects Queen Florence Island and advises Chief Natsilane.
- Cool Old Lady: She takes the form of an elderly woman and uses every loophole she can to help the people of Queen Florence Island.
- Defector from Decadence: 'Grandmother' shows no sign of the arrogance that many other Children of Oberon display, and seems entirely benevolent to her adopted human 'family'.
- Good Old Ways: She's insistent that Natsilane must fulfill his traditional obligations, however he may disdain the supernatural.
- The Mentor: To Natsilane. She can't interfere more directly due to Oberon's laws.
- World-Healing Wave: After Raven is banished, she restores Queen Florence island by shifting her hair into a wave of water.

The Egyptian god of death and the afterlife.
- All Are Equal in Death: Said word-for-word.
- Badass Baritone: He is voiced by Tony Jay after all.
- Dark Is Not Evil: For a god of death, Anubis is not at all malevolent.
- Death Takes a Holiday: While the Emir and the Pack imprison him, everyone on Earth is prevented from dying (though we never actually see the consequences of this).
- Don't Fear the Reaper: Anubis is neither evil nor antagonistic.
- Everybody Hates Hades: Refreshingly averted. Though he both looks and sounds rather sinister, Anubis is not portrayed as a villain and the episode featuring him in fact has the moral that death is a natural part of life that must be accepted.
- Fusion Dance: Forced to merge with two different mortals in his debut episode. He has next-to-no influence over the fused form and whomever he's bound to is the one who has control.
- The Grim Reaper: Anubis has this role, which he regards as an obligation to be fair.
- Hijacking Cthulhu: With the scroll of Thoth, Jackal, and later the Emir, take over Anubis' powers.
- Not So Above It All: When the Banshee is embarrassed during the gathering he laughs along with the other children of Oberon.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Regards death as "the ultimate fairness" and is adamant about not showing favoritism.
- The Stoic: Doesn't lose his cool despite being imprisoned. Even when giving his warnings he stays calm.
- Voice of the Legion: Whenever fused with someone.

A Child of Oberon residing in Ireland who prides herself on her destructive siren voice.
- Composite Character: Cromm-Cruach in Irish legends is not connected to Banshees in any way.
- Cool and Unusual Punishment: Oberon gags her mouth in "The Gathering, Part I" for disobeying his summons to Avalon, preventing her from using her siren voice.
- Cute Ghost Girl: Very attractive in her ghostly form, less so as Cromm-Cruach
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Odin even makes fun of her for it.
- HeelFace Turn: She was supposed to undergo this if Heroes of Ulster ever got the greenlight. Probably would've been a case of Love Redeems since Rory was her boyfriend before he remembered he was a mythical Irish superhero.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: She is the Banshee, after all.Banshee: When the Banshee keens, men DIIIIIIIIIE!
- Manipulative Bitch: Spends most of her debut trying to manipulate Rory from discovering his identity.
- One-Winged Angel: Her form as Cromm-Cruach, a large cross between a dragon and a larva with a skeletal face.
- Our Banshees Are Louder: Duh. She has the scream and the spectral appearence, though unlike the original one she can transform into a monstrous wurm.
- Poisonous Friend: She deliberately plays this part to Rory Dugan in order to prevent him from discovering his true nature as Cu Chullain's reincarnation. Although Word of God is that her relationship with him wasn't entirely just an act.

A trickster Child of Oberon residing in Nigeria in the form of a spider.
- Adaptational Villainy: Anansi in the original African Mythology usually is presented as heroic despite being The Trickster. This one is a villainous Manipulative Bastard.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When the battle starts to turn against him, he rather pathetically offers to "spin wishes" for the heroes and grant them treasures beyond counting.
- Big Eater: Like African Elephant big.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Smart as he is, he'd rather have other people gather food for him. Even when he confronts the heroes he just swipe at them with his legs in rather slow movements.
- Deal with the Devil: His stock in trade. He made both Fara Maku and Tea Gora were-panthers in exchange for them hunting for him, but as Elisa's mother Diane points out, his gifts always come at a price.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Which, given his size, is to be expected.
- Eye Scream: On the receiving end when his own panther servant jumps on his head and swipes at his eyes.
- Fatal Flaw: A mixture of overconfidence and, mostly, sloth: he wants to create many more servants to feed him, but he never stops to consider the fact that they could turn on him. And while he's powerful, unspecified years of sloth and eating have reduced him to a fat and slow beast who can barely defend himself or walk on his own power.
- Fat Bastard: So fat, in fact, that he can't fight the heroes once his webs have been cut. And his goal is to become even fatter.
- Giant Spider: Huge spider, even resides in a city shaped like a web. Subverted in that his size is so large he's mostly unable to maneuver on ground.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Anansi's gluttony left him so fat that he couldn't keep fighting after his web was cut.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: We don't see the spear sink into his flesh, but he does disappear in a flash of light and a scream of pain.
- Karma Houdini: He escapes and is later seen attending the Gathering. That being said, he did take a spear to the belly before said Gathering.
- Manipulative Bastard: He manipulated the original were-panther, and the subsequent were-panthers, into hunting his food for him.
- The Trickster: The trickster god of Africa.
- Villainous Glutton: Since he made the pact with the Panther Queen, his main objective was to obtain more and more food for himself. Deconstructed as he grew so fat and out of shape he's not a formidable threat once his only asset, the web, is cut down.
- Weaksauce Weakness: He was defeated when his web was cut down because he was too fat to move properly on the ground.

- Badass Beard: Odin sports a massive beard of awesomeness.
- Bears Are Bad News: His favorite alternate form appears to be that of a polar bear.
- Black Cloak: His cloak of stars.
- Cool Horse: Sleipnir, his horse with a black, starry-hide, medieval-style gold barding and can fly. Word of God is Sleipnir is another member of the Third Race that can shapeshift which is used to explain why he did not have eight legs. In real-life, trying to animate eight legs would have been too costly.
- Defrosting Ice King: Odin starts off rather distant and off putting, but the by end warms up to the Gargoyles and admits he handled the situation poorly.
- Eye Scream: No matter what form he takes, until he gets his Eye back, he always appears to have an empty eye socket. Word of God is that this is an exception to the Children's usual Voluntary Shapeshifting. It's most likely that the artifact called the Eye of Odin is a separated portion of his essence, and the empty socket represents this 'disability'.
- Handicapped Badass: He is missing his eye until the end of his first episode.
- Horny Vikings: Odin's outfits are either a black starry-cloak wanderer disguise or a fantasy viking outfit complete with white fur cloak and horned helmet.
- An Ice Person: Odin's magical powers are primarily form of weather manipulation common to the north from summoning blizzards to ice shields.
- Norse Mythology: Word of God holds the Aesir were a subset of the Third Race, led by Odin. Some form of Ragnarok occurred killing most of the members of that branch, but Odin somehow survived.
- Physical God: As physical as any of the Third Race. Despite being less powerful than Oberon, Odin is one of the few members of the Third Race who considers himself a god.
- Poor Communication Kills: If he had just explained his intentions and who he was to Goliath, Goliath would most likely have given the Eye to him. Odin even admits at the end of his starring episode that he is out of practice dealing with mortals.
- Shock and Awe: Aside from cold weather Odin can summon storms and lighting bolts.

- Badass in Distress: He is captured by Xanatos and nearly forced into granting him immortality.
- Cold Iron: Like the rest of Oberon's Children, Coyote is vulnerable to iron, which is exploited by Xanatos, who captures him in a modified robot.
- Deadpan Snarker: Well, he is a trickster. See the remark about trademark infringement.
- Doppelgänger: The form he assumes for most of "Cloud Fathers" is an imitation of young Peter Maza.
- One Steve Limit: Averted and Played for Laughs. The characters constantly have to take care not to confuse Coyote the Trickster with Coyote the robot.David Xanatos: Ironic isn't it, one Coyote catching another?
Coyote: I should sue you for trademark infringement!
- Reverse Psychology: He tries to use it in order to push Elisa's father Peter Maza into accepting his heritage.
- Shapeshifting Trickster: And the most light hearted of the four of them. Being a Child of Oberon he is a natural shapeshifter, an asset he repeatedly used in "Cloud Fathers", in order to manipulate the events to his desired outcome.
- Those Wily Coyotes: He's a depiction of the Ur-Example.
- The Trickster: He's very clever, and his tactics seem to be whatever amuses him. Though he seems to be more on the benevolent side of the scale.

- Heroic Bastard: If he is Macbeth's biological son, Luach followed in his father's heroic footsteps despite being born out of wedlock.
- Historical Domain Character: Like most characters from Macbeth's backstory, one with a lot of artistic license. Luach is especially notable because the historical Macbeth's son was in fact named Lulach.
- Killed Offscreen: Luach was ultimately killed by Canmore a year after his father was "killed".
- Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe: Luach was born during his mother's marriage to Gillecomgain, but it's not entirely clear as to whether he's the son of Gillecomgain or of Macbeth. Either way, Macbeth raised Luach as his own after he and Gruoch wed.
- Nice Guy: Luach is undoubtedly a kind and courageous young man.
- Undying Loyalty: Towards Demona and her clan. When Bodhe suggests to Macbeth and Luach that betraying the gargoyles would buy them favor with the Englishmen who follow Canmore and could likely get them to turn on Canmore in favor of Macbeth, Luach is instantly outraged, making it clear that he refuses to betray the allies that have fought by their side for so long.

- So Proud of You: When he sees the lengths his son goes through to protect his son (Petros' grandson) from a Physical God he finally tells David that he is proud of him because David has finally found something he values more than money or power.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Petros is basically an older version of David with grey hair and a mustache instead of a beard.
- Unfazed Everyman: Oh look, my son has become an amoral billionaire. And discovered a long lost non-human race. And fallen in love with a criminal mastermind. And has gotten mixed up in the Illuminati, ancient sorcery and time travel. Now if only he'd discover a conscience.
Jeffrey Robbins's seeing-eye dog.
Two professors of archaeology who discovered the Scrolls of Merlin. Elisa later encounters them again on Easter Island.
The stone from which King Arthur drew the sword Excalibur, a sentient magical stone.
- All Myths Are True: Judging by Shari's stories and the Stone's own claims, the Stone is every magical stone spoken of in myth, as the Spirit of Destiny can manifest itself through any stone. Following an incident where Xanatos, the Illuminati, Arthur, and Macbeth all tried to either obtain or protect the Stone, wherein several copies of the Stone came into play, it manifested itself through all of them to speak to each man simultaneously.
- Badass Boast: Has a pretty epic one that it gives out simultaneously across time and space to any presumptuous mortals.
- Excalibur in the Stone: Though not actually seen, there is a slot in the Stone where Excalibur used to be (and it was explicitly Excalibur).
- Sophisticated as Hell: Speaks very grandly when interacting with mortals. When left alone alongside the Holy Grail, however, the two artifacts greet each other with a simple exchange of "Hey."
A team made out of people who previously fought the Manhattan Clan, organized by persons unknown and led by Robyn Canmore. The stars of the Comic Book Spin-Off Bad Guys. The members are the Hunter (Robyn), ex-Pack member Dingo, artificial intelligence Matrix, Japanese gargoyle Yama and the mutate Fang.
Tropes about the individual members of the squad before they came together can be found under Antagonists and Allies.
- Anti-Hero: The whole squad.
- Anti-Villain: The whole squad, with the exception of Fang.
- The Atoner: Again, all except Fang.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Robyn and Dingo. Fang lampshades it. Word of God is that they'll eventually marry, and their descendants will play some part in the timeline of Gargoyles 2198.
- Berserk Button: Yama has three. One is having his swords broken, another is threatening his clan, and the last one is if people mock the dead, which Fang finds out the hard way, as Yama punches him to the floor and nearly decapitates him.
- Boxed Crook: Again, the whole squad.
- Dark Action Girl: Robyn
- Everyone Loves Blondes: Eventually Dingo for Robyn.
- Good Feels Good: Dingo. He was originally a thief and mercenary before joining the Pack and pretending to be a hero. When the Pack went back to being mercenaries and bad guys, he realized he'd actually liked being a hero. After splitting off from the others, he undergoes his HeelFace Turn.
- HeelFace Turn: All of them except for Fang.
- Multinational Team: Robyn is Scottish, Dingo is Australian, as is Matrix, in a way, Yama is Japanese and Fang is American.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Especially between Yama and Fang.
- You Can't Go Home Again: Yama can't return to the Ishimura Clan until he feels he has redeemed his honor.
