* PrincelingRivalry: The central conflict of the story involves Hades' scheme to supplant his brother Zeus, and become supreme ruler of Olympus, Tartarus and all the Earth in between. [[BrainsEvilBrawnGood Zeus is the strongest god and older brother, while Hades is a scheming younger brother.]]
** Actually, Zeus is the ''youngest'' of the sibling, and Hades is the oldest in the original mythology.

* EverybodyHatesAres: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Ares is portrayed as a boisterous war-mongerer, especially as he's [[RedOniBlueOni always compared to his calmer and more intelligent sister Athena]]. But he's not particurally ''hated'', and the city state of Sparta even has him as his patron. Ares and Athena are stuck in an endless rivalry though, which makes the people of Sparta and Athens look down on each other (the Spartans will see the Athenians as sissy eggheads, while the Athenians see the Spartans as war-mongering brutes).

* GreenEyedMonster: Hades is resentful and jealous that the other gods give Zeus HundredPercentAdorationRating while he is [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating virtually despised]] [[EverybodyHatesHades by the other gods on Olympus]]. This causes him to find a way to overthrow his brother and become the king of Olympus.

* AdaptationalHeroism: By modern standards, the Hercules of Greek Myth [[AntiHero 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 [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone remorseful]] when this happened), and [[HotBlooded 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 much, 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.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Both of them. Neither the original [[AnythingThatMoves Zeus]] nor the original [[{{Yandere}} Hera]] were good people. Heck, in the original myths, ''Hera'' was Hercules' ArchEnemy, not Hades!

* ClassicVillain: Vice: [[AmbitionIsEvil Ambition]] and [[DrivenByEnvy Envy]]. Compared to the other gods of Olympus, who are all aglow with bright colors, Hades is all blacks and greys. Hades is sick of being the ruler of the Underworld and seeks to unleash the Titans in order to take over Mount Olympus from his brother Zeus. To further this end, he has his minions snatch Zeus and Hera's infant son Hercules in order to make him mortal. Unfortunately for Hades, Hercules retained his god-like strength. To make a long story short, by risking his own life to recover Megara's soul from the river Styx, Hercules regains his Godhood and sends Hades down the drain, so to speak.

* IGaveMyWord: Like all gods in greek mythology his powers are limited by being bound by his words. So it is literally impossible for him to break the letter of a deal. If something happens his magic will act accordingly without him even realising it. He promises to release Meg from his service and that she won't be harmed if Hercules gives up his strength for a day. Eg. After Hercules agrees, Hades averts the LoopholeAbuse trope by releasing Meg with a snap of his fingers before departing. Whem she does get fatally injured during Hercules' fight with the cyclops, Herc immediately repossesses his powers.

* SpannerInTheWorks: They interrupted Pain and Panic as they were giving Hercules the potion to make him mortal. Without them, Hades's plan would have gone off without a hitch.
