The New Olympians were a group of sentient beings resembling creatures and gods from Greek Mythology. They had traveled to the island of New Olympus after being driven there by fearful humans in Classical Antiquity, and their descendants were able to remain hidden through advanced cloaking technology. Several of them shared names with characters from mythology, although they were not intended to be identified with those characters, unlike some Children of Oberon. According to Gargoyles creator Greg Weisman, they are descended from Oberon's Children interbreeding with humans and animals, though the show makes no mention of this, and there is also a resident gargoyle clan on the island.
The New Olympians appeared during the "Avalon World Tour" story arc in the episode The New Olympians, in which Elisa Maza arrived on the island along with her three "gargate" companions (Goliath, his daughter Angela, and Bronx). Because of their past experiences with the human race—Taurus at one point specifically mentions the murder of his ancestor by Theseus—the New Olympians harbored a strong hatred against Elisa and humans in general. This inverts the show's usual premise, in which many humans are prejudiced against creatures such as gargoyles. After an encounter with Proteus, Elisa managed to convince some New Olympians—particularly Taurus—that not all humans are evil.
- New Olympus and the New Olympians are introduced.
- In the The Goliath Chronicles episode Seeing Isn't Believing, Proteus escapes to New York City to exact his revenge. Taurus leaves New Olympus to pursue him. This is not considered canon.
- A spinoff show, titled The New Olympians, was planned; the Gargoyles episode featuring the characters was a "backdoor pilot". A series pitch was produced, revealing that the new series' storyline would have revolved around the New Olympians revealing themselves to humanity in front of the United Nations. The pitch, which is shown at Gathering conventions, introduced several new characters including Sphinx (a New Olympian female) and Terry Chung (a human male). Although the series was never picked up, Greg Weisman has said that elements would have been included in the main Gargoyles series had it continued. Terry Chung appears as a trick or treater in the Gargoyles comic issue 4.
