* BigFun: Thalia is the chubbiest of the Muses, and she tends to serve as the comic relief of the group. Fitting, since she's the Muse of Comedy.

* FauxActionGirl: She's supposed to be a warrior goddess but she's taken down very easily several times, including by Ares' sons, Fear and Terror, and by the Titans when she goes to battle with them.

* AffablyEvil: Only outside of his source material (such as in Mickey's House of Mouse), he's a lot more easygoing, relaxed, and friendly than most of the Disney Villains.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Both of them. Neither the original [[AnythingThatMoves Zeus]] nor the original [[{{Yandere}} Hera]] were good people. This is mitigated to a small extent in the AnimatedSeries where Zeus occasionally displays a more wrathful, vindictive side more in line with his mythological counterpart, such as his [[DisproportionateRetribution punishment of Prometheus.]]

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In the original Greek myth, Hera was Hercules' stepmother. Here, she is his biological mother.

* RagsToRoyalty: {{Downplayed}}. They weren't necessarily poor, but still of a working class couple. When their son made it big in Athens, they become rich. Even so, they are still seen with their old home and Penelope thus implying that even with being rich, they still wanted to have some of their old lifestyle.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: {{Inverted}}. In the original Greek Myths Alcmene is actually Hercules' biological/birth mother, while the Disney version remade her as his adoptive mother.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: 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.

* {{Expy}}: This adaptation of Hercules takes a lot from [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Superman]] (who was probably inspired by Heracles in the first place). Only child of a couple belonging to advanced race of beings who is raised by two simple country folk who teach him good morals, he learns to use his powers to help others and be an example of, while falling for a caustic, worldly brunette and being manipulated behind the scenes by a power-hungry sleazeball.



* {{Expy}}: Phil's character and appearance is inspired by [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Grumpy]], [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Bacchus]], and Mickey Goldmill from ''Film/{{Rocky}}''. He also takes elements from the centaur Chiron in the original Greek mythology.



* {{Expy}}: Large superpowered white animal companion serving as a link to the heroes lost homeworld? Krypto, is that you?



* {{Expy}}: The guy even takes cues from {{Superman}}'s greatest arch enemy, Lex Luthor, down to the baldness. Not only this, but he's also a SatanicArchetype.



* SatanicArchetype: He's clearly upgraded to a Satan {{Expy}}. [[EvilIsBurningHot Association with fire]], rebelling against the divine powers, [[DealWithTheDevil making shady deals]], [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils ruler of demons and the dead]], and the GodOfEvil.

* {{Expy}}: The couple are based off of [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Superman's adoptive parents, Jonathan and Martha Kent]]. They are a kindly country couple of mortals who rise the god-like baby to be a good man.

* MrFanservice: Considered as such in-universe. He has a ''ton'' of fangirls, and even two of the Muses openly fawn over him in the opening song.



* PersonOfMassDestruction: Before his training, he caused so much damage that the other villagers openly shunned him.



* PowerIncontinence: Originally, he had no control over his strength, and would cause a ton of damage just through normal teen awkwardness.



* CanonImmigrant: While Pegasus was indeed a character in Greek Mythology, he was not involved in the original Heracles myth at all. The Disney movie added him so Herc could have a faster means of travel, while also serving as a comedic animal sidekick as a bonus.

He also wasnt created by Zeus, he's actually the offspring of Poseidon and Medusa (dont think about it too much).
