Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Hercules is entry #35 of the Disney Animated Canon, released in 1997. Being a mostly lighthearted musical comedy that serves as a change of pace after Disney attempting three epic features, this film is a very loose, family friendly adaptation of the myth of Heracles, being to Greek Mythology what Aladdin was to the Arabian Nights.After Zeus fights and sends the Titans to the Underworld, he becomes the ruler of Mount Olympus, home of all Greek gods. Hades is sent to rule the underworld, but he makes plans to throw Zeus out of Mount Olympus with the Titans' help. The three Fates warn him that his plans would be endangered if Hercules, Zeus and Hera's newborn child, is still around by the time he tries to take over Mount Olympus. Hades sends his minions Pain and Panic to turn Hercules into a mortal and kill him, but they fail in their attempt and leave him on earth with his divine strength to be raised as a human. Hercules grows up but later learns he is the son of Gods, and in order to return to Mt. Olympus he must turn into a "true hero".Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Over a year after its release, the film spawned a cartoon that ran both in syndication and on Disney's One Saturday Morning on ABC, from 1998 to 1999. It was a Midquel series that presented Herc's life in high school and had him hanging out with fellow Greek characters Icarus and Cassandra. It also presented a plot hole in that Hades was still trying to get him killed, despite the fact that in the movie he didn't know Herc was still alive until he was an adult, but that didn't seem to matter much to the writers. The show runners admitted to the plot hole and stated their intent was to just have some fun with the setting and characters, hoping that the plot hole wouldn't bother viewers too much. Thanks to James Woods coming back, it did pretty well.The film is also adapted into a level called Olympus Coliseum in the Kingdom Hearts series… heavily. It has appeared in seven out of eight games, and even in the game it didn't appear in, the world's theme music was used in another world. Hades is even the most recurring Disney Villain in the series besides Maleficentnote the biggest Disney Villain of the series herself, probably because you can always rely on getting the big name of James Woods to play him.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })While far from Disney's most successful movie thanks to competition, it made plenty of money and was still very successful when compared to the Disney franchise as a whole. Its sense of humour was compared to that which Robin Williams brought to Aladdin, showcasing a villain both competent and hilarious. Some mark it as the turning point where Disney no longer confined humour to incompetent sidekicks.The film was eventually adapted into a stage musical by the Public Theater in New York, and is notable for casting Roger Bart, the actor who provided Hercules' singing voice, as Hades.A Live-Action Adaptation is in development, produced by The Russo Brothers.

Abusive Precursors: The Titans, the portrayal of which was in some ways very close to ancient Greek Theology (ancient beings defeated by Zeus and imprisoned in the Underworld, their powers were very broad as well) and in some ways very different (the original Titans were deities Not So Different from the Olympians and the parents of several of them, rather than near mindless elemental monsters).

Grade System Snark: When Hercules defeats the River Guardian and sends him flying (with just a headbutt) to rescue Meg, Phil loudly says several congratulatory remarks, ending with, "Not bad, kid!" This is directly followed by him muttering underneath his breath, "Not exactly what I had in mind, but not bad.", as not a minute earlier he told Hercules to 'use his head' to beat the Guardian.

All There in the Manual: The Titan's names are Stratos, Lythos, Pyros, and, rather unfittingly for his powers, Hydros. Likewise, unless you know your Greek mythology, the five Muses are Thalia (muse of Comedy and the plump one), Melpomene (muse of Tragedy and the one with the long, curly hair), Calliope (muse of Epic Poetry and the leader), Clio (muse of History and with the pony tail), and Terpsichore (muse of dance and choral poetry, the one in the two-piece toga). The Hydra is repeatedly stated to be female in supplemental material like story book versions.

Visual Pun: Phil says "I get the greenhorn!" while his horns are covered in green olives. When Herc arrives in Thebes, there's a wall inscribed with the words "The end is near" at the same time that a crazed man comes around shouting the same message. A few steps later, the same wall says "Fin," which is Latin for "end." Very near, indeed. When Herc digs around in the river, he's muttering that "A hero is only as good as his weapon!" He pulls a fish out of the river. 'Fish' is also a slang term for somebody completely clueless and inexperienced, as in 'fish out of water'.

comment
Bloodier and Gorier: While there's no visible blood spilled, Hercules decapitates the Hydra on-screen while still inside its neck, although the Hydra grew a few more heads but still. Kinda brutal for a Disney movie.note For those of you curious though, the rating system is unusually lax on dismemberments and decapitations when on characters who can regrow the lost part in question, or in this case multiples of the parts in question. Throw in a little Alien Blood and you're goo to go. Notice that when the Hydra is actually killed it's in a completely bloodless way.

Adaptational Villainy: In the myths, the Cyclopes were Zeus' allies in the fight against the Titans, and they gave the thunderbolt to Zeus, the trident to Poseidon, and the helmet of invisibility to Hades. The movie has one lone Cyclops who is in league with the Titans, and is sent by Hades to destroy Thebes and kill Hercules. And, of course, Hades, as is tradition.

comment
Ancient Grome: Gladiators and Roman numerals are mentioned in a few places. The name of the hero is "Hercules" (the Latinization), not "Herakles", yet the gods are given their Greek names (mostly). Ironically the Greek "Herakles" makes more sense in this version, as it means "Glory of Hera", and considering that in this adaptation Hera is both his actual mother, and a loving and supporting one, the name would make far more sense than in the original myth, where she hated his guts and tried to have him killed repeatedly (the name being an attempt to pacify her wrath).

Anachronism Stew: The film has elements that definitely weren't around in the time of Greek Mythology, including Gospel style music, sundial watches, traffic signals (albeit crude signpost like ones), emergency phone numbers like 911 (styled in Roman numerals as IX-I-I) credit cards, shopping malls and merchandise like action figures and soda cups with bendy straws, and Phil and Hades using Yiddish phrases, but they're often played for laughs. Also, when Herc arrives in Phil's house, the Argo's mast is there... while in the myth, Hercules was one of the Argonauts.note  the animated series would retroactively Hand Wave this: Jason didn't find the Golden Fleece the first time around, so Hercules joins him in another attempt Also, Herc is either 40 or a whole 70 years (it's not entirely clear) older than Achilles who wasn't trained by Phil but by the centaur Chiron. In the movie Achilles was already dead before Herc ever met Phil, which also means the Trojan war happened much earlier here than it did in myth.

Mythology Gag
 Hercules / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: Aptly enough; despite many changes to the actual myths, there are more than a few references to them outside the main plot. The Mythological Hercules is best knownnote (besides for killing his wife in a goddess-induced fit of madness) for performing the Twelve Labors, all of which are referenced in the film, most of them in the "Zero to Hero" segment. The first labor, the slaying of the Nemean Lion, is changed from a lion that terrorized the town of Nemea to a monster that Hades sends. Hercules is later shown wearing its pelt (as he is usually depicted in the myths), and the lion's skin looks remarkably like Scar's. The second labor is the slaying of the Lernaean Hydra; obviously this is referenced by the massive Hydra battle (although it comes before the lion and is not in Lake Lerna, as it is in the myths, and is sent by Hades instead of Hera). In some (often the more detailed versions) of the myth, the Hydra had at least one immortal head, so Hercules had to finish it by burying it under a large rock. In the movie, Hercules defeats the Hydra by burying it under several large rocks. The fourth labor is to capture the Erymanthian Boar, which is alternately said to get its name from where it lives, Mt. Erymanthos, or from Erymanthus, Apollo's son who was blinded by Aphrodite (or in a few accounts Artemis) when he saw her bathing, which led him to send said boar to attack her. A large boar shows up in the "Zero to Hero" as another monster that Hades sends. The fifth labor is mentioned in passing as Augeas having a problem with his stables that Hercules is expected to help with. The sixth labor is to slay the man-eating Stymphalian birds, which are likely referenced by the large bird shown in passing as being a monster Hercules defeated in "Zero to Hero". The ninth labor is mentioned by Phil as having to get a girdle from some Amazons. The eleventh labor does not appear in the movie, but is referenced in the series, where Adonis is cursed by Gaia and needs the golden apples of Hesperides to be cured, which Hercules gets Atlas to pick for him, just as he does in the original myth. The twelfth labor appears at the end of the movie; Hercules was challenged to tame Cerberus, and appears riding him into the Underworld in the finale. As a baby, Hercules saves his adoptive parents from Pain and Panic when they turn into snakes, strangling both of them. In the Greek Myths, two (ordinary) snakes sent by Hera actually did attack Hercules as a baby, and he strangled both of them to death. In fact, if you count name drops and people in crowd scenes, it's almost a constant stream of references to Greek mythology. There's plenty to other Disney movies too: From Fantasia, we get Zeus's wedge-shaped beard, a blue centaur, pudgy Bacchus and a scene of Hephaestus hammering at Zeus's lightning bolts. In addition, Hercules defeats the Cyclops the same way Mickey Mouse defeated the giant in "Brave Little Tailor". One of the smallest ones is the blue centaur Hercules battles to save Meg in their first scene together. His name, Nessus, is said exactly once, and in passing, to boot. In Greek mythology, Nessus was a centaur killed by Hercules who tricked Deianeira (Hercules' wife) into using his blood as poison to kill her husband.

Curse Escape Clause: If Hercules proves himself worthy, he can rejoin the gods. Thanks to Exact Words, Hercules can get out of his deal of giving up his strength to Hades in exchange for Meg's release: Hades simply promised that "no harm" would come to Meg, so when she pushes him out of the way of the falling pillar, thus bringing her to harm (and sacrificing her life), the deal is broken and Herc gets his strength back.

Parental Abandonment: One of the only films in the entire Disney canon to avert this trope. Herc not only has his immortal parents watching from on high, he has a pair of mortal adoptive parents who love him very much.

Sadly Mythtaken: Let's just say that the movie plays so fast and loose with Greek Mythology, that it would be far, far easier to list the things they did get accurate. The writers did read up on Greek Mythology when doing research for the film, but deliberately changed elements around and were often forced to change the more unpleasant elements of the Myths due to the film having to be acceptable to kids (a straight adaptation would've gotten the film an R rating and was thus out of the question). They do sneak in a lot of literal Mythology Gags to counterbalance it though. The film has its own page for examples of this.

Kick the Dog: After Hades captures Megara and has Hercules give him his strength and powers in exchange for Meg's safety, the first thing he does is to viciously toss a huge barbell toward Herc, knocking him into the ground and taunting him about how he finally got his wish of being "just like everybody else". To further rub salt into the wound, Hades uses the moment to reveal to Herc that Meg had been working for him the entire time. Herc, already in huge pain from the drastic loss of his powers, is utterly devastated by this revelation.

Hold Your Hippogriffs: "Holy Hera!  Heavens/Hell!" Thebes is called the "Big Olive Apple." "Wanna buy a sundial?  watch?" "Somebody call IX-I-I!  9-1-1!" "Keep your toga  pants on, pal!" "This is the honest-to-Zeus  God truth..." "Is this an audience or a mosaic?  an oil painting?" In an interview with Disney Adventure magazine, James Woods said the original line in the script was in fact "oil painting," but he improvised the word "mosaic" and they went with it. "That's it, I'm moving to Sparta!  Canada!" "He's just another chariot ambulance chaser." "...but I could see through that in a Peloponnesian  New York minute."

A "True" Hero: Hercules goes into training to become a true hero in hopes of rejoining his birth parents Zeus and Hera. After having become a superstar and beaten a ton of monsters, Hercules thinks he must have met the requirements. Reluctantly, Zeus tells him that while his accomplishments are impressive and they're proud of him, he hasn't yet become a true hero. Not until Herc sacrifices himself to save the woman he loves from Hades are the requirements fulfilled.

Actor Allusion: Who knows if this was on purpose, but as Phil is an Expy (or at the very least an Affectionate Parody) of Mickey from the Rocky films, this isn't the first time Danny DeVito has played a character made popular by Burgess Meredith... In the victory party scene, Hermes plays keyboards, just like his voice actor, musician Paul Shaffer. An animator case - Hercules is seen dressed in Scar's pelt, and both were done by Andreas Deja.

Adaptational Alternate Ending: The Disney adaptation completely changes the ending as well along with every other part of the story. In the original myths, Herakles dies, but after Philoctetes lit his funeral pyre, he ascended to godhood in Mount Olympus and stayed there. The Disney movie changes it to where Hercules earns his godhood by saving Meg from Hades and is allowed to come home to Olympus—but Hercules, who realizes Meg can't join him there, willingly gives up his godhood so that he can stay with Meg.

Adaptational Ugliness: This happens with the Fates, who were traditionally either beautiful women or intimidating but normal-looking old ladies, due in part with confusing them with the Grae Sisters, three eyeless (and toothless) witches who were also somehow sisters to the Gorgons. Some myths suggest that they were also part bird. Bacchus appears as a background character, and follows most modern depictions of him as a fat middle-aged man, as opposed to the handsome, Bishōnen youth of the myths.

Fake-Out Opening

comment
Fake-Out Opening: The first 25 seconds of the movie start with Charlton Heston narrating, setting up the movie to be a serious representation of the Hercules myth. Then the Muses cut in, tell him to lighten up, and sing "The Gospel Truth", establishing right then and there that the film is a musical comedy.

Classical Cyclops: Hercules has to fight against a huge, brutish cyclops released by Hades alongside the titans after losing his phenomenal strength in a deal with the god of the underworld. Despite this handicap, Hercules still has his combat experience and plucky sidekick Pegasus and manages to defeat the giant by tying his legs with a rope and sending him plunging off a cliff.

Panic runs around worrying that "[Hades]'s not gonna be happy when he finds out about this." Pain says "You mean if he finds out" Panic: "If? If is good!" They have a similar conversation after Hercules punches Hades into The River Styx.

Let's Get Dangerous!: Zeus. On his free time, he's a loving father and husband, spends time joking with everyone and attempts to be a good big bro for Hades; in fact, he's much more lovable than the original Zeus, but once the Titans attack and Hades proved to be a backstabber, we quickly see where Hercules' strength come from and why you don't mess with the King of the Gods.

Central Theme: The main theme of the film is that a person's strength and worth is not defined by their might, fame, or stature, but by their character and integrity. One should also be themselves to achieve their goals instead of something they're not for personal gain. Hercules' Humble Hero contrast with Hades' Ambition Is Evil approach emphasizes this theme.

They have no problem lying to him, and after Hercules punches him into The River Styx they clearly do not miss him. Panic is only worried about how angry Hades will be. Meg is only working for Hades because she sold her soul, and is paying off a debt. Once she falls in love with Hercules she turns on him.

Pragmatic Adaptation
 Hercules / int_603f1a80
comment
Pragmatic Adaptation: The original Heracles myth—and Greek Mythology in general—were as family unfriendly as you can get and had a lot of built-in Values Dissonance (the basic conflict alone was unacceptable for a family film, since Hercules is a product of Zeus' adultery with a mortal, and Hera, Zeus' wife, is the villain who constantly makes Hercules' life miserable because of this), so the studio was forced to heavily rework the concept; it borrows the character names (not so much the personalities), story points and the setting from the myths, but throws out and adds in things from other parts of Greek Myth (such as Pegasus and the Muses, who were not in the original Heracles story), and reworks everything else (such as expanding Hades role in the story by turning him into the main villain), ultimately making the film less an adaptation of Greek Mythology and more like a mashup of Superman: The Movie and Rocky set in a burlesque of Ancient Greece.

Plot Hole

comment
Plot Hole: If Hades is surrounded by souls of the dead in the Underworld, why didn’t he check to ensure Hercules’ soul came in when Pain and Panic claimed to have killed him? Did he not suspect anything when Hercules was never amongst his collection of deceased people? Hercules's deal to trade his soul for Meg's. After he rescues her, he just leaves and never gives Hades what he agreed to. Which is ironic, since Hades was very good about honoring his end of their bargains. Then again, Herc did just become immortal. If Zeus imprisoned the Titans eons ago by himself, why did he get his butt handed to him so readily the second time even with an entire mountain of gods helping him? Furthermore, after Herc breaks him out, he throws thunderbolts (which had been shown to be essentially useless against the Titans as they were climbing Mt. Olympus) which are suddenly capable of ripping the Titans apart. The Titans even run away in terror upon seeing his release.

Anyone who knows their Greek mythology knows that Zeus is a self-righteous, womanizing jerk and rapist. Here, he's pretty much a cross between Grandpa God and Bumbling Dad who certainly loves Hercules and stays loyal to Hera, making his status as a Top God of Mt. Olympus and Big Good of the series a lot more plausible.

Spared by the Adaptation: Unlike in the original myth, Megara is not killed by Hercules in this adaptation and even when she does die, Hercules manages to rescue her from the underworld, guaranteeing she lives. Amphitryon, Hercules foster father, died in the battlefield fighting against the Minyans in the myth. In the movie, he lives all the way through to the end. To a lesser extent, Pegasus stays intact throughout the film and isn't turned into a constellation by Zeus in the end, which was his fate in the myths.

Vanilla Edition: This became one of the first four movies in the Disney Animated Canon that Walt Disney Home Video released on DVD, as part of the Limited Issues series in late 1999.note Its DVD came out one week after the initial release of Pinocchio, and the same day that 101 Dalmatians and Mulan made their DVD debuts. Unfortunately, the disc contains only a non-anamorphic presentation of the movie, a making-of featurette that runs less than 10 minutes, and a Ricky Martin music video for the Spanish version of "Go the Distance". A second DVD release, as part of the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection, made literally no improvement to the picture or the extras. The Blu-ray has vastly improved picture and sound, but just one additional bonus feature: a sing along of "Zero to Hero".

From Bad to Worse
 Hercules / int_7870735b
comment
From Bad to Worse: As a teenager, Hercules crashes into a pillar. While stopping it from falling, he hits another which starts a domino effect, destroying a marketplace. While training to be a hero, Hercules has to save a "damsel" which is portrayed as a dummy. The dummy is barely in pieces by the time his training was finished. When Hercules confronts Nessus to save Megara, Meg didn't want to be saved. Then Nessus punches Herc into the water. Instead of his sword, Herc wields a fish, causing Nessus to laugh and punch Herc again. After freeing two boys, Hercules unintentionally releases the Hydra from its cave. Then, while battling the monster, Herc realizes that his sword is missing and behind him. Then Herc throws a rock at the Hydra, who crushes it with its teeth and laughs at the hero. Then when Herc retrieves his sword, the Hydra swallowed him whole. After Herc cuts his way out through decapitation, the Hydra grows more heads. After Meg has fallen in love with Hercules, she tells Hades Herc has no weaknesses and therefore he stands no chance against him. However, after seeing how much she has come to love Herc, Hades puts two and two together and realizes Meg is the perfect weakness to lure Herc into a trap, and so he holds her hostage and has Herc give him his powers in exchange for Meg's freedom. Herc does so and is left utterly powerless, allowing Hades to put his Evil Plan to take over Olympus in motion.

Black-and-White Morality: Hercules, Zeus and Hera become purely good. Hades becomes purely evil. In the original myths they were a lot more morally ambiguous. The only grey character in the movie is Meg. This is one side effect of being Hijacked by Jesus.

Bullying a Dragon: During Herc's teen years, the other kids mock him and call him "Jerkules", and the townspeople in general call him a freak and disaster because of his Super Strength. Luckily for them, they are in a G-rated Disney movie and Hercules is a kind-hearted and sweet-natured guy, as opposed to the Hercules of the actual myths, who was known for A) being extremely hot-tempered and B) using his strength against those who angered him, often with lethal results for the mortals involved.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: As a teen Hercules accidentally destroys an entire town while trying to catch a frisbee. The townsfolk turn on him and call him a freak and a menace. Hercules accidentally releases the Hydra to free two children from a cave in. After trying to defeat it by cutting its head off, three more heads grow in its place. Regardless, he keeps cutting them, producing a swarm of heads until Phil tells him point-blank to stop doing that. Meg sassing Hades on realizing she loves Hercules accidentally reveals to Hades that she is Wonder Boy's weakness.

Breather Episode: Between the heavier themes of The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame and darker films in Mulan and Tarzan, this film is a Lighter and Softer comedy with a tone similar to Aladdin. This is emphasised in the opening, when the serious narration is cut off by the muses, who proceed to give the movie a more lighthearted musical opening.

Adaptational Nice Guy
 Hercules / int_82a64c4b
comment
Adaptational Nice Guy: By modern standards, the Hercules of Greek Myth wasn't exactly a paragon of heroic virtue. He killed more than one innocent person simply for being too close when his temper got the better of him (although he was always remorseful when this happened), and he would go stage a HUGE war for a mere verbal insult one day, although he did go to great lengths to help his friends and his deeds did the world a lot of good. The Hercules in this movie is a wide eyed boy scout who doesn't have many, if any, vices. The worst thing he does is lash out at Phil for trying to warn him about Meg being in league with Hades, but he immediately comes to regret that. Anyone who knows their Greek mythology knows that Zeus is a self-righteous, womanizing jerk and rapist. Here, he's pretty much a cross between Grandpa God and Bumbling Dad who certainly loves Hercules and stays loyal to Hera, making his status as a Top God of Mt. Olympus and Big Good of the series a lot more plausible.

ConservationOfNinjitsu
 Hercules / int_82f05a5d
comment
Conservation of Ninjutsu: The Hydra's first head has Hercules on the ropes during their clash, dodging several attacks, disarming Hercules, and eating him. If he hadn't recovered his sword in time, the first head would have won. None of heads that take the first head's place are nearly as competent, they even start to bang into and bite each other when the monster gets even more. It takes them using the body's claws to pin Hercules down to get control of the fight back, which ends up being a fatal mistake for all of them, after Hercules triggered a rockslide and they couldn't get away. note Possibly justified if the primary head's memories and experience didn't transfer over to the other heads when it was removed.

Everybody Loves Zeus
 Hercules / int_8a5661d2
comment
Everybody Loves Zeus: The gods of Olympus get this treatment, Zeus and Hera especially. Zeus is portrayed as a light-hearted, if not buffoonish king and loyal husband to Hera free of infidelity, while Hera is sweet and considerate (as well as Hercules being her actual son). Zeus is portrayed as a light-hearted, if not buffoonish king and loyal husband to Hera. While the spin-off series brings up his flaws—like forgetting he and his wife's anniversary, occasionally losing his temper and the whole "Prometheus" thing—Zeus's frequent infidelity is never brought up (most likely non-existent to keep the G-Rating). Hera gets this treatment even more so. In the original myth, Heracles was not Hera's child and was a product of her husband cheating on her. Feeling spiteful, Hera actively sabotaged his life and tried to make his suffer, even forcing him to kill his own family. Here, Hercules is her son and no mention of Zeus cheating on her is ever brought up, so the adaptation portraying Hera as the kind, patient and level-headed of the two. Even in the episode "Hercules and the Return of Typhon" it is revealed that she was the one who threw the lightning bolt that led to Typhon's defeat and that she allowed Zeus to take the credit for image reasons.

The third time, when Meg uses her foot to turn Hercules's head around, squishing his cheek in the process, so their eyes will meet.

Eating the Enemy: the first monster the titular character faces is the Lernaean Hydra (sans swamp), who quickly swallows him whole. Miraculously, he cuts himself out of her throat before hitting the stomach. Unfortunately, for each head that's cut off, three new ones will grow in its place, as in the original myth. Eventually, the monster gains a veritable army of heads and pins him to a wall. She then tries to eat him again but Hercules is able to collapse the mountain she has him pinned against, crushing her to death in a rockslide.

Death by Cameo: Sort of. Scar makes a cameo as the skin of the Nemean Lion Hercules wears for a vase-painting shoot. This is also an in-joke to the fact that both Herc and Scar are animated by Andreas Deja, as well as a clever little Call-Back to The Lion King (1994) itself: when Mufasa asks what he should do with Scar near the beginning of the film, Zazu suggests that he "would make a very handsome throw-rug".

Foreshadowing
 Hercules / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: When the two "boys" are "trapped", you can hear a slight hissing at the end of their last under-rock sentence. When Hades opens his display to ask Megara about the River Guardian, there are two other figurines visible on it: a giant boar and a gorgon, that are both later sent against Hercules in "Zero to Hero". When Meg takes Herc to the garden, she is surprised and truly flattered by Herc's sincere compliments towards her. Then she backs into the statue of Cupid's arrow. Then they nearly kiss before Phil interrupts and berates Herc for ditching him. Before leaving, Herc, picks a flower from a tree and gives it to Meg and kisses her. The entire garden scene is what foreshadows the song I Won't Say I'm in Love. Young Hercules hitting his head on the mast of The Argo could be seen as a foreshadow to his "death" later in the film seeing as Jason died from having the mast of The Argo fall on him.

Meg also gets this when Hades makes the deal with Hercules to deprive him of his strength, and then reveals that Meg was in Hades's service.

Rule of Three: The people of Thebes’ reactions to Herc’s first public heroism and their raising reception: when he raises and throws the colossal boulder they are unimpressed but still clap for him, then when he cuts off the Hydra’s first head they are legitimately impressed and their clapping is much more sincere, then when Herc kills the Hydra they go crazy and erupt into a roaring applause.

Totally Radical: "And that's the world's first dish!" They gave Meg, one of the more complicated and interesting Disney love interests, dialogue like "Been there, done that" and "Don't even go there." It... hasn't aged well. Meg has served time in the Underworld so her slang may be somewhat out-of-date. Phil also mentions having "been around the block before with blockheads just like you" to Hercules. He means he's trained people like Herc already, but... well, he's a satyr, and it's Ancient Greece.

Off-Model: Hercules will frequently suffer Clothing Damage to his tunic, only for it to be repaired by the next frame. Most obviously when he's attacked by his fangirls—one strap of his tunic comes down, in the next frame it's fixed and in the next it's the other shoulder down. The river in the Underworld before Hercules jumps in. First he's able to dip his hand into the water. A few frames later, he jumps off a precipice to get into the river.

Ms. Fanservice: Meg is drawn to be a lot more sexy than the usual Disney heroine, sharing a similar body type to Jessica Rabbit. She also gets scenes like when she washes herself in the river and seduces Hercules. The Muses are also amongst the most attractive women in Disney history, wear robes that expose their shapely legs and cleavage, and spend much of their time in the movie shaking their ample hips. Even the goofy Thalia is gorgeous.

Dead-Hand Shot: Used twice: The first is a rather odd example. When Hercules uses a rock slide to kill the Hydra, we see its fist go limp. However it's not in sympathy for the monster, but for Hercules who apparently died in the same avalanche. And he happens to actually be held inside the dead hand. The second is more conventional, Where we see Meg's hand going limp after her Heroric Sacrific.

By modern standards, the Hercules of Greek Myth wasn't exactly a paragon of heroic virtue. He killed more than one innocent person simply for being too close when his temper got the better of him (although he was always remorseful when this happened), and he would go stage a HUGE war for a mere verbal insult one day, although he did go to great lengths to help his friends and his deeds did the world a lot of good. The Hercules in this movie is a wide eyed boy scout who doesn't have many, if any, vices. The worst thing he does is lash out at Phil for trying to warn him about Meg being in league with Hades, but he immediately comes to regret that.

Shout-Out
 Hercules / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: One of the Muses' sculpture incarnations during "I Won't Say (I'm in Love)" should look very familiar to fans of the Haunted Mansion ride at the Disney Theme Parks. Hades, just before the fight between Hercules and the Hydra: "Let's get ready to RUMBLE!" And Hades again: Followed by: The Hydra looks like Mohawk the Gremlin from Gremlins 2: The New Batch. And the way Hercules slides down into a spiral of one of the Hydra's necks is reminiscent of The Jungle Book where Mowgli slides down into a spiral of Kaa's coils. This isn't the first time Disney has shown Hephaestus forging bolts and throwing them to Zeus. The Muses themselves are very similar to Alan Menken's other famous Greek Chorus. Don't forget the lion skin Hercules wears in one scene—it's Scar! Quite possibly to the specific line Zazu says to Mufasa. "He'd make a very handsome throw-rug." There's also the Mr. Miyagi-esque bit of the training montage. The maiden in the constellation getting her skirt blown upwards. There is a sign that says "Over 5,000,000,000 and 1 served", a nod to the McDonald's Corporation. Herc's origin story bears a striking similarity to the backstory of Superman. The female pegasus that Pain and Panic disguise themselves as to lure Pegasus away resembles a My Little Pony, right down to having a symbol (in this case a heart) on its flank. A seductress is sent to find out a seemingly invincible hero's weakness, and he then loses his superhuman strength due to her betrayal... just like Samson and Delilah! Pain & Panic after Hades yells at them when the Fates arrived without his knowledge: "We are worms! Worthless worms!". While bowing down. The fish that Hercules picks up when facing down Nessus bears a striking resemblance to a certain Mr. Limpet. During one of Hades' rants, he referes to Zeus as "Mr. Hey You, Get Off My Cloud". Meg catches Hercules hiding behind a curtain and says, "Let's see. What could be behind curtain number one?" Phil's house is the head of Talos from Jason and the Argonauts.

Big Friendly Dog: Pegasus, who was a gift to Hercules from his father at birth. Described by Zeus as having the heart of a horse and "the brain of a bird", he acts pretty dog-like throughout the movie. Besides the flying, Hercules and Phil get their faces licked by him several times throughout the movie.

Wowing Cthulhu: After the battle for Olympus, Hercules goes down to Hades to get Meg's soul back. He offers the god of the underworld his soul in exchange for hers, if he can get her back from the river of death. Hades is stunned when Herc emerges from the river not only alive, but as a god.

Boxing Lessons for Superman: Hercules already had Super Strength so Phil's training focuses on teaching him everything else he'd need to know: weapons, balance, aim, obstacle courses and other things. Turns out to be a good thing because when Herc is Brought Down to Normal he's able to use the other skills he learned to kill the cyclops even without Super Strength.

Goofy Print Underwear: When Hercules announces to a small crowd of distressed people that he's a hero, one of the men realizes the "goat man", Phil, that's with him trained Achilles. Phil tries to beat him up and ends up biting his toga, revealing white underwear with red spots. This may qualify Phil under the All Animals Are Dogs trope since that's a very canine thing of him to do.

Lighter and Softer: The take on Greek mythology present in the film, in addition to being Sadly Mythtaken, is much lighter and more family-friendly. Without it, the film would have turned out an R-Rating. It also applies in the context of Disney Animated Canon. Of the '90s Disney movies, this film was considerably lighter and more of a slapstick comedy, especially compared to its darker and more epic predecessors (The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and successors (Mulan, Tarzan).

The lovesick Herc will have none of it, to the point of hitting him in a blind rage, and Phil leaves Herc in his darkest hour. Hades ends up revealing Meg's involvement to Herc after taking his strength away. And boy does it have a more crushing effect on Herc than having his strength gone!

The Gods Must Be Lazy: Played straight and inverted. Zeus singlehandedly defeated and imprisoned the Titans in the prologue. Zeus persuades Phil to take Hercules on as a student. Hades reveals himself as one behind the release of the Titans and their assault on Olympus seeking to usurp the king of gods from his throne. Yet in the climax all the gods are not in the underworld, and are not proceeding to kick Hades' ass.

What the Hell, Hero?
 Hercules / int_d39e327f

What the Hell, Hero?: Phil calls out Hercules for being too distracted by love to see that Meg is using him. Hercules takes a flying leap to avoid the hint, takes his rage out on Phil and disowns him as his trainer, leaving Phil to mumble one last admonishment and leave him to his darkest hour. Although Phil could arguably be said to be doing his own at the same time, by completely neglecting to mention the most important part: Hades' involvement. To Hercules it just sounds like he's being hounded about an old topic, and Phil never tries to clarify that he's hounding him because he discovered a god is after his friend before abandoning him.

Adaptational Wimp
 Hercules / int_d500b978
comment
Adaptational Wimp: In the Greek Myths, Deimos (who Pain is based on) was the Greek God of Terror and Phobos (who Panic is based on) was the very personification of fear brought on by war. In the movie, they're watered down into bungling comic relief lackeys for Hades. Also, Hermes was able to borrow (or steal) Hades' helm of darkness pretty much anytime he wanted in the myths. In the movie, he's easily captured and subdued by Pain and Panic to be dragged off into the Underworld once the Titans storm Mount Olympus. This is probably because the film chose to depict him solely as a messenger god rather than the more broad-scope trickster that he was in the myths. Amphitryon (Hercules' foster father) was a general that ravaged the islands of the Taphians, and took part in other war campaigns, even dying on the battlefield fighting against the Minyans. The movie changes him into a harmless peasant.

Living Forever Is No Big Deal: The Gods seem to consider immortality part of their lives; they are naturally worried when it's removed from one of them, but in normal times they barely refer to their immortality.

The difference is that Superman was sent to Earth out of necessity since Krypton was dying, while Hercules was kidnapped and made to be mostly mortal to prevent his victory over Hades and the Titans.

In Phil's song "One Last Hope", the lines "Askin' me to jump into the fray/My answer is two words:" set him to rhyme with something like "No way." Then he's forced to make a Last-Second Word Swap.

The Titan's names are Stratos, Lythos, Pyros, and, rather unfittingly for his powers, Hydros. Likewise, unless you know your Greek mythology, the five Muses are Thalia (muse of Comedy and the plump one), Melpomene (muse of Tragedy and the one with the long, curly hair), Calliope (muse of Epic Poetry and the leader), Clio (muse of History and with the pony tail), and Terpsichore (muse of dance and choral poetry, the one in the two-piece toga).

In Phil's song "One Last Hope", the lines "Askin' me to jump into the fray/My answer is two words:" set him to rhyme with something like "No way." Then he's forced to make a Last-Second Word Swap.

Phil also mentions having "been around the block before with blockheads just like you" to Hercules. He means he's trained people like Herc already, but... well, he's a satyr, and it's Ancient Greece.

Evil Plan
 Hercules / int_f2d8e3c2
comment
After Meg has fallen in love with Hercules, she tells Hades Herc has no weaknesses and therefore he stands no chance against him. However, after seeing how much she has come to love Herc, Hades puts two and two together and realizes Meg is the perfect weakness to lure Herc into a trap, and so he holds her hostage and has Herc give him his powers in exchange for Meg's freedom. Herc does so and is left utterly powerless, allowing Hades to put his Evil Plan to take over Olympus in motion.

No Song for the Wicked
 Hercules / int_f4a8b21c
comment
No Song for the Wicked: Hades has no Villain Song despite being such a Large Ham. Even though Woods loves playing Hades, he doesn't like to sing (according to the DVD commentary for the first Family Guy episode he appeared).note  Rob Paulsen voiced his verse for the Mickey's House of Villains song It's Our House Now". The stage musical averts this by giving him two numbers, "A Cool Day in Hell" and its reprise.

Evil Cannot Comprehend Good
 Hercules / int_f8e010ce
comment
Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Hades usually sends Meg on "errands" to persuade monsters to ally with him, and also asks her to seduce "Wonder Boy" and find his weakness. Meg assumes that all men are the same and accordingly offer some titillating positions after taking Hercules to see Oedipus. Instead, Hercules gives a Loud Gulp, rearranges her dress strap, and sits at a respectful distance to make sure she is comfortable. Meg is surprised that Wonder Boy is Above the Influence and says, partly gushing, that he's "practically perfect". Eventually, however, Hades realizes that he can use Hercules's inherent good nature against him: by using Meg as a hostage.

Canon Immigrant: The Muses, Pegasus and Deimos (Pain) were not involved in the original Heracles myth, and were brought in from other parts of Greek Mythology for the Disney movie. Phobos (Panic) does not appear in the myth per se, but Heracles did worship him and have him depicted on a shield of his.

Pet the Dog: Hades did bring a gift for the little "sunspot" at the Olympus party. It's just that Hercules bit his finger as well when tasting the sucker. After that, Hades wants to murder the little guy, and not just because of the prophecy.
