Added DiffLines:

* AgeLift: In the original myth, he was a child when Hercules died. Disneys portrayal of him makes him significantly older, enough to have trained many figures of Greek Mythology.

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Hades didn't have a particularly big role in the Heracles myth, although he was crucial to helping Hercules finish his final labor. The movie bumps him up into being the major villain.

Added DiffLines:

* 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, whike also serving as a comedic animal sidekick as a bonus.

* AscendedExtra: Philoctetes was barely involved in the original Heracles myth, only playing a part in it after Hercules had died. The Disney movie bumps him up to a major role as Hercules trainer.

Added DiffLines:

* 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 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.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: 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.

* {{Expy}}: Phil's character and appearance is inspired by [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Grumpy]], [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Bacchus]], and Mickey Goldmill from ''Film/{{Rocky}}''.

* {{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.



Pain and Panic are the secondary antagonists. They are two shape-shifting imps who are minions of Hades and provide comic relief.

Pain and Panic are the secondary antagonists. They are two shape-shifting imps who are minions of Hades and provide comic relief. They are both ''very'' loosely based on Deimos and Phobos from the Greek Myths.
