The Titans from Pagan are the tertiary antagonists, portrayed as four elemental monsters who terrorized Ancient Greece. They were the physical manifestation of the element they controlled. There's Lythos, the Earth Titan; Pyros, the Fire Titan; Hydros, the Water Titan; Stratos, the Wind Titan; and the Cyclops.

** AnIcePerson: Hydros is a giant ice fiend. If his name is any indication, his powers may extend to water as a whole.



* SealedEvilInACan: Zeus imprisons them all beneath the ocean with lightning bolts, but when the planets align, Hades is able to release them. [[spoiler:Hercules uses the Stratos to suck the other Titans in, then throws them all into space where they explode.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IGaveMyWord: Averted. Even after agreeing to stay in the Underworld in exchange of Meg's soul, Herc simply walked out (and punched Hades' face inwards). It may be due to Hades expecting Herc to die ''anyway'', but he still ignored the letters of the deal.


Added DiffLines:

* LiteralMetaphor: When his coup of Mt. Olympus was foiled by Hercules.
-->"Thanks a ton, Wonderboy! But At least I've got one swell consolation prize! A friend of yours, who's ''[[YourSoulIsMine dying]]'' to see me!"

* 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 [went 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.

* DealWithTheDevil: Like in other Muskers/Clements movies [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid before]] and [[ThePrincessAndTheFrog after]] him, this is a villain that loves to makes deals, but only for his benefit.

* FateWorseThanDeath: He is [[spoiler:tossed into his river of undead souls, and can't pull himself out due to the current being too strong, possibly decaying and rotting the way Hercules did. "If" he gets out, as Pain and Panic discuss, he's not going to be happy.]]

[[AC:Tropes that apply to both]]



* BigGood: Zeus is the benevolent TopGod and Hercules' father.
* BigOlEyebrows: Zeus has these. They're implied to be clouds.
* BoltOfDivineRetribution: Zeus of course! He used it trap the Titans and later to get Phil to train Hercules.
* CainAndAbel: Zeus with Hades; the latter tries to overthrow the former.
* GodCouple: The only such divine pair in the film.
* EtTuBrute: Zeus had this look when he realized that Hades was behind the release of the Titans, their assault on Olympus and was [[TheUsurper plotting to overthrow]] [[TopGod the king of the gods]].



* GodCouple: The only such divine pair in the film.



* TheHighQueen: Hera. Like her husband, she's a competent and wise ruler.



* JerkassBall: It's seen in the animated series that Zeus isn't always as nice as he reveals himself to be to Hercules and his associates. He mentions that he tends to smite people and entire cities (e.g. Smyra) at times that offend him and was the one who condemned Prometheus to eternal punishment just for benevolently giving fire to humans and disobeying his authority.
* LargeHam: Zeus can get very loud and dramatic when he wants to.



* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: A married example. In the animated series, Hera was the one who tossed the lightning bolt which defeated the monster Typhon after he beat up Zeus.

* AGodAmI: Sure, Hades is a god, but he wants to overthrow Zeus so he could become the [[TopGod King of Olympus]] so he nonetheless has delusions of grandeur.

* ThePowerOfLove: She runs on this and can [[LoveIsInTheAir make people fall in love]] rather easily, but admits that love is complex, messy, and best left to the professionals. Like plumbing. As such, she greatly dislikes when it's trifled with.

* {{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 an 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.
