Beneath Hades' casual buddy-talk is a veneer for viciousness, and he's more than willing to manipulate, cheat, extort and use outright violence without hesitation to overthrow his brother.

The Three Fates are the quaternary antagonists. These three sisters share one eye, which they use to see the future. They also determine the deaths of mortals, cutting a mortal’s Thread of Life to send them to the Well of Souls in the Underworld. They have extreme psychic abilities, knowing everything that has happened, is happening and will happen, and are an authority above the gods in this respect, though the one thing they cannot do is kill a god.

* BadassTeacher: It's a downplayed trope. He teachers Hercules to fight monsters but runs away when monsters show up. He's no coward though--he frequently stays nearby and goads Hercules to keep on fighting like a coach. Phil is smart enough to know that, being the scrawny satyr he is, he's completely outmatched by the monsters Herc fights and would be immediately in over his head if he actually tried to fight alongside him.

Although even if he can't fight monsters, he's still strong enough to easily beat the crap out of ''human'' men several times his size.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Hades expected Hercules to die when he jumped into the Well of Souls to save Meg. [[spoiler: But when Hercules emerges from the Well of Souls with both Meg's spirit and his regained God-hood, Hades was absolutely shocked.]]



'''Panic:''' Oh, they're here!
'''Hades:''' ''[literally explodes with anger]'' '''WHAT?!!''' ''The fates are here and'' '''YOU DIDN'T TELL ME?!!'''
'''Pain and Panic:''' ''[turn into literal worms begging for mercy]'' We are worms! Worthless worms!
'''Hades:''' Memo to me, memo to me: maim you after my meetings.

* FailedASpotCheck: Hades is the god of death. How could he not know Hercules, the son of his most hated enemy, wasn't in the underworld?



* HonestJohnsDealership: James Woods modeled Hades after a used-car salesman.



* LackOfEmpathy: "He was as mean as he was ruthless...."



* PhosphorEssence: Unlike most of his fellow gods glow, Hades doesn't. This is done to show that he's evil.



* TheSociopath: He is a [[ManipulativeBastard master manipulator]], [[TheCharmer has a suave, wisecracking and charming personality to match]], [[SmugSnake thinks of himself as the smartest in the room]] and [[DealWithTheDevil is willing to make deals.]] Beneath that charming personality lies a [[TheUnfettered remorseless, cruel and selfish god]], who's willing to do whatever it takes to [[TheUsurper overthrow Zeus]], even if it meant killing and maiming anybody, including gods (part of his EvilPlan is to [[MoralEventHorizon kidnap baby Hercules so he could turn mortal and be easily killed off]]). To top this off, the deals he makes are for [[ItsAllAboutMe his own selfish gains]], [[FauxAffablyEvil speaks like a conman while screwing everybody around (including his own minions)]] and is a [[BadBoss brutal sadist when it comes to torturing his minions Pain and Panic,]] especially if they anger him.

* TheResenter: It's implied in the movie and animated series that Hades' antagonism springs from deep frustration and hatred over Zeus putting him in charge of the Underworld, knowing it was a dank and unpleasant job and condition, and tends to mock his workaholism. Most of Hades' plans against Zeus are to overthrow him as King of the Gods to obtain the pleasures of Mount Olympus that Zeus and the other gods indulge in while he watches over the dead.

Added DiffLines:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: She has a notable attraction to powerful or unpleasant men, as seen with her constant relationship with Adonis despite being a jerkass snob and a later stated attraction to Orion the Hunter for his macho and hairy persona. She does provide affection to Hercules though not enough to formally be with him in a relationship.
