New York Police Department/Gargoyle Taskforce/Supervillain Taskforce
- Agent Mulder
- Badass Longcoat
- Badass Normal
- Conspiracy Theorist
- Fair Cop
- Friend on the Force
- The Illuminati: A Thirty-Six.
- Cool Cousin: To Terry.
- In the Blood: Apparently his father was a cop as well. Didn't help their relationship much, however.
- Papa Wolf: In the making.
- Crusading Widow: Wanted Castaway to quit the Quarrymen and concentrate on their son, Jackson. After Castaway's death, she vowed never to stop until every last gargoyle is captured.
- Fantastic Racism
- Rich Bitch
- Ungrateful Bitch
- Unholy Matrimony: She divorced Brendan and married John Castaway
- Yuppie Couple: Trope Namer alongside Brendan Quarters.
- Big Bad Friend / False Friend: He was either of these to Matt, though it's unclear whether he truly considers Matt a friend. At the very least, it's implied that Hacker got Matt expelled from the FBI, so there's that.
- FBI Agent
- The Illuminati: A Thirty-Two.
- The Mole: The Illuminati's man in the FBI.
- Smug Smiler
- Badass Normal
- Big Good
- Killed Off for Real: A real Tear Jerker too.
- Papa Wolf: To Gwen
- Reasonable Authority Figure
- Secret Keeper: Was this for Spidey, though Peter wasn't aware of it until he heard George's Last Words.
- Inspector Javert: Frequently the first to jump to the conclusion that a hero (Spidey in particular) is up to no good.
- Police Brutality: Has gotten into a lot of trouble for this, but never enough to get him kicked off the force.
Humans Met on the World Tour
- Only One Name: Averted here by giving "Mr. Dugan" a first name.
- Papa Wolf: He may not have any superpowers, but when Rory is threatened he tries to hold off the Banshee and an evil Celtic god with an iron poker.
- Adaptation Expansion: In Gargoyles canon, Erik and Gunther are essentially blank slates. Their player(s) have taken advantage of this to give them rather... interesting characterizations.
- Adaptation Expansion: See his father.
- Manchild: when you realize that if Alex is now 16, then Gunther must be 26 at the very least....
- Friend on the Force: To the Ishimuran Clan.
- Only One Name: Averted here. No family name was stated in the series, so an Alliterative Name was chosen, likely as a Shout-Out to the tendency of a certain contributor to Marvel Comics for doing the same.
The New Olympians
- Da Chief: Former head of the New Olympian Security Force
- Fantastic Racism: A victim of it due to the relationship being exposed.
- Interspecies Romance: A no-longer-secret one with Terry Chung.
- Legacy Character: Like most New Olympians.
- Spin-Offspring: Of a sort - he's one of the sons of Boreas (Xetes is the other) and never appeared in the original episode.
- Good Wings, Evil Wings: One brother is depicted with white wings, the other black. It remains to be seen if this trope will be subverted, inverted, or just flat-out ignored.
- Legacy Character: If you can't guess what myth her name comes from, you really need to read up on the classics.
- Fauns and Satyrs: Subverted. They know the difference and even explain it.
- The Illuminati: A Thirty-Six
- Voluntary Shapeshifter
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: In Jove's faction of New Olympus because he honestly believes that the world needs New Olympian leadership.
- Happily Married: To Baricos.
- Nature Spirit: A naiad (freshwater nymph).
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Just a Senator trying to adequately address the concerns of her constituency.
- Fantastic Racism: She doesn't like humans.
- Killed Off for Real: And, after everything he'd done, you still almost felt bad for him.
- Persona Non Grata: The former Second of the New Olympian Clan, now banished from that island.
- Unholy Matrimony: He wanted Demona to love him, and all he had to do was allow his former home and Clan to be attacked by HYDRA for it to happen. An atrocity he could have prevented with a two-minute phone call.
- Villainous Crush: Inverted. He allied with Demona, and became her new mate.
- Weapon of Choice: The Heqat Staff. A traditional weapon among the New Olympian Clan.
The depiction from Atlantis: The Lost Empire has been made applicable thanks to the unproduced Team Atlantis Crossover episode "The Lost." The overall "canon" of the movie and its spinoff is applicable in Broad Strokes.Atlantis: The Lost Empire, she is the Queen of the lost city of Atlantis.
- Canon Immigrant: In a more literal sense thanks to the aforementioned crossover episode.
- Really 700 Years Old: More like around 8,500 if her husband's calculations are correct. The wonders of Orichalcum crystals.
- Canon Immigrant: See his wife.
- Older Than They Look: Considering he should be somewhere in his hundreds... this is probably a safe bet. The wonders of Orichalcum crystals.
- Adaptation Distillation: As with Dorma, a Marvel Atlantean has been reimagined as one from Disney's film.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: Even more so than Namor.
- Because Destiny Says So: Literally.
- Cosmic Keystone: Single-handedly serves as this for the entire Spectacular Gargoyles Universe. It is one of the few entities powerful enough to deny the man in white and other threats from the greater Spectacular Omniverse from entering the world it guards.
- I Have Many Names
- Living MacGuffin: In a sense. See above.
- Non-Linear Character: It has spoken the same speech - a Badass Boast incorporating its many, many names - to a number of individuals. But while they may experience the speech years or decades apart, from the Spirit's perspective it is speaking to them simultaneously.
- Forgiveness: As the Stone is said to be inhabited by the Spirit of Destiny, the Grail is said to house the Spirit of Mercy.
- The Holy Grail
- Living MacGuffin: The Grail and the Stone are alike to each other in this way, and unlike anything else in the world they inhabit. What exactly they are is a question unlikely to ever be answered in full.
- Berserk Button: Go ahead. Say something to the giant blazing firebird about changing history, or any other method of Time Travel that doesn't result in a Stable Time Loop. I dare ya.
- The Phoenix
- Stable Time Loop: It's the only type of Time Travel that works in the Spectacular Gargoyles Universe, and this is why.
- Golem: The original model.
- Living Statue
- Perpetual-Motion Monster: Or at least it could become one without a moral guide like Max Loew.
Alternate Universe counterpart to Thailog, who immediately joined The Illuminati and founded the corporation Gateway Dynamics upon settling into the Spectacular Gargoyles Universe.
- Alternate Universe: Thomeheb, thanks to his Gateway, has just been utilizing every possible trope related to this. Also implied that he's not from the Universe you think he is.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive
- French Jerk
- The Illuminati: A Thirty-Six.
- Manipulative Bastard: The way he sweet talked the Animorphs in order to steal their technology and imprison them in order to try and extract the morphing ability from them. They were attempting to play him too, but he was better at it.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His collaboration with Demona, as bad as its intended results were, very nearly got Universe-2196169498 devoured by the man in white. He remains unaware of just how close they came to total annihilation.
- Animal Wrongs Group: A former member of PIT, though she had the sense to get out of dodge before things went bottom-up for their erstwhile leader.
- Half-Human Hybrid
- Sexy Secretary: If you're into that sort of thing. And Thomeheb definitely is.
- The Face
- The Stoic: "I have no response to that."
- Unfazed Everyman: He'd have to be, to work for Norman Osborn and then Thomeheb without batting an eye.
- Reverse Mole: After learning that his boss planned to Kill All Humans in the Omniverse, he offered to become this for New Camelot. They accepted, if cautiously.
- Legacy Character: Currently, we're on Unit 16.0, thanks to...
- Stuff Blowing Up: Tends to happen depressingly often to the TUCAP probes. The current model is understandably a tad... ticked at the Doctors' callousness to its plight.
The Notre Dame Clan
BehemothAn Alternate Universe counterpart to Goliath.
- Killed Off for Real: By Diabolique.
- Chew Toy: Tells Angelique that he's departing for Avalon, but gets consumed by the Phoenix before he can leave. She never looks for him because she's been assuming that he's been living happily among the clan there. Later he returns, and almost gets a chance to return to his original Universe, but the Phoenix swallows him up right before he would have left.
MontparnasseAn Alternate Universe counterpart to Broadway.
- Killed Off for Real: By the hammer of John Castaway.
- The Mourning After: Was initially mated with Montparnasse, until the Quarrymen brutally murdered him. While she does share Griff's attraction to her, it took a very long time for her to get past the resultant grief (and arguably, she still hasn't completely done so).
- Complicating this is that gargoyles normally mate for life. While it is not unheard of to have a Second Love, it is certainly frowned upon in most gargoyle cultures.
DiaboliqueAn Alternate Universe counterpart to Demona.
- Kill All Humans: Her goal.
- Killed Off for Real: By Demona... because if there's one thing Demona can be counted on for, it's sabotaging any chance of acquiring a like-minded ally.
