* RecurringCharacter: He's not a main character but after Iolaus, he makes the third most recurring appearances in the series and is important enough in Hercules' life that he was present for several milestone events in Herc's life, most notably seeing Xena go through her HeelFaceTurn, starting the Olympic Games with Hercules, being there with Hercules when his mentor Cheiron was near-death, and planning the wedding of Herc's mother Alcmene and Jason.

* MadeOfIron: He may not be half-god but Iolaus has withstood and endured physical trials that no ordinary man ever could, most notably displayed in the episode, ''The King of Thieves''. Falsely accused of a crime, Iolaus was put through three arbitrary tests to prove his innocence. In the first, he was dunked underwater for an inhumanly long amount of time, only to emerge still alive and heavily breathing. Second, he had to hold up multiple heavy stones on top of a wooden board across his back for up to the span of an hour... Iolaus endured that as well. ''And right after he's done with his second trial'', he has to face a trial where he's lowered into a pit with a giant boar and he has to survive down there for a long period of time without bleeding. ''Iolaus passes that test as well'' and only gets declared guilty because he accidentally cut himself after his trial with the boar was over.

* BetterTheDevilYouKnow: When the Empress seized power, he preferred to be in the Netherworld with the Sovereign.
-->"At least the Sovereign laughed at my jokes."


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: On his world, the rebels approached him to assassinate the Sovereign. When things got tough, he ran, which led to him switching places with our Iolaus.
-->"Oh, I'm such a spineless coward. I ran away from the only brave thing anyone's ever asked me to do. He's killed Zeus! And after that, it'll be the rest of the world, save his followers."


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: He's not Iolaus, but Jason feels he shares the same heart.


Added DiffLines:

** A more minor but still notable example would be his mother. Hercules usually doesn't take it well when any man tries to woo Alcmene. He grew especially angry and distrustful when a villain named Demetrius tried to woo her(though for good reason). He also didn't take it well when even his longtime friend Jason began courting his mother, though in Jason's case, Hercules had more of a FreudianExcuse since in the past, Jason had really upset Hercules by going after a girl he was interested in during the ''Medea Culpa'' episode. And he eventually grew to accept Jason after getting over his initial reservations.
