* YeOldeButcheredEnglishe: When Herc meets his [[spoiler: mortal part]], who still talks like that, Herc points out that they're 1) from Greece and 2) were born over 2000 years before Shakespeare (or English for that matter).

* BrokenAesop: At the end of Chaos War, Hercules says that truly benevolent heroes show the way that gods should be, as they recurrently sacrifice everything to protect, help, and heal others; [[spoiler: whereupon he expends his full power to restore all the people that Mikaboshi murdered.]] That's probably a message that we can all get behind. However, for some reason he also [[spoiler:restores all the destroyed demons, afterlives of eternal torture and damnation, and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in the universe]]...enforcing the type of setting that basically fits his definition of the way a deity ''shouldn't'' be. This is pointed out right after the event, when [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] says that Herc [[spoiler:fixed everything but forgot to fix the Hulks. Herc replies that he was "[[StatusQuoIsGod guided by]] [[OmniscientMoralityLicense wisdom beyond our ken"]], but even ''he'' understood that he screwed up and apologized.]] Later, it's even revealed that even Kyknos (Ares's son) was brought back because of this.

** The "Dubious Consent" version of the trope applies when Hercules has sex with Snowbird at one of her most vulnerable moments, while she's breaking down over the deaths of all her old companions in [[Comicbook/AlphaFlight]]. Hercules, apparently aware of this, asks her if this is really what she wants at the time, and she answers with a passionate kiss.

Hercules, apparently aware of this, asks her if this is really what she wants at the time, and she answers with a passionate kiss. So potentially averted or not, depending on your interpretation of it.

Added DiffLines:

* BedTrick: Hercules sleeps with (and ends up in an AccidentalMarriage to) Alfyse, Queen of the Dark Elves by pretending to be Thor. He didn't start the facade specifically to sleep with her, and part of his intention ''might'' have been to invoke a SexFaceTurn (which he eventually does). Further, she didn't fall for him ''because'' he was Thor, but because of Hercules's own charm and personality. Still, a lie is a lie, and she didn't know who he actually was, and might have even trying to seduce him ''right back'' so that she could marry Thor and thus legitimately invade Asgard.


Added DiffLines:

* QuestionableConsent: Hoo-boy.

** Also downplayed when Hercules admits to tricking Namora into giving him an UnderwaterKiss during their time as the Renegades by pretending to run out of air.
** Herc seduces Alfyse while pretending to be Thor. While she seems to fall for him because of his own personality and charm, the only reason she even gave him an audience was because she thought he was Thor.

* PrisonersDilemma: Both Hercules and his partner Amadeus Cho are captured by the greek god Hephaestus. The rooms they're trapped in both have a switch which will open the other cell's door and allow escape, but will flood the room of the person who pressed it with a gas that not even Hercules can survive. Once the countdown starts, both Herc and Cho press their buttons instantly, setting each other free.

* TheMentor: Herc(in a rare main character example) was this for Amadeus. His conventional wisdom and kindness transforms Amadeus from arrogant MartyStu who is willing to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. [[ForTheLulz for the hell of it]] to a true hero who gladly carries on Herc's legacy after he seemingly dies.

* PoisonousFriend: All of the events of the series[[note]]Hercules going on the run and mentoring Amadeus, helping Amatsu-Mikaboshi conquer the Skrull pantheon, the collapse of the Olympus Group, etc..[[/note]] were manipulated or orchestrated by her to come to the exact moment where the Chaos King has destroyed the entire multiverse and Herc (with Athena and Amadeus as advisors) holds nigh-omnipotent power to recreate reality to his liking, creating a better world that Athena envisions. It gets derailed at the last possible instant where Herc simply uses this power to hit the ResetButton and [[StatusQuoIsGod put things back the way they were]] before Mikaboshi destroyed it.
