  • Though only David Xanatos reveals his secret identity in both the television series and the villains tournaments, as one of the members of the Illuminati, the rest of the hooded members' real identities remain unknown. Only in the the comic-book adaptations of the Gargoyles franchise has an exception, as all of the hooden members' real identities are revealed.
    • In Disney Vs Non-Disney Villains Universe, while not revealed yet, it is pressumed that one of the hooden members of the Illuminati is Kent Mansley, the goverment agent from the animated movie, The Iron Giant. The reasons of depicting him as one of the hooden members may be lead to the meeting in the second part of the war, as one of the members quote one of Kent Mansley's famous lines, "WE CAN, AND WE WILL". Also in the backstory of Mansley, he explains that he joins a secret society, that has yet to explain it's origins, characteristics and purposes, furthermore leading to the conclusion that Mansley is indeed one of the hooden members of the Illuminati.
      • Another pressumed theory is that one of the hooden members could be, Eli Pandarus, a villain from the television series, American Dragon: Jake Long. The speculation is assumed by one of his famous quotes in the second part of Disney vs. Non-Disney Villains War in the beginning of Round 10, where he quotes, "There is nothing more exciting than executing and taking over the world". The fact that he wasn't showed dead during his battle with Daolon Wong may lead to the hypothesis that he may had survived and currently plotted for his revenge.
