* 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.

* OutOfCharacterMoment: Hercules's brief reappearance in ''The Avengers'' after returning from Olympus has him running in fear of an opponent named "The Huntsman" (Zeus's personal tracker/assassin). This is the first time Hercules is ever shown running from, or avoiding, any sort of fight.

* WhatTheHellHero: Zeus calls out both Thor and Hercules after they start fighting each other ''again'' over who gets to rescue Krista--right after he just ''stopped'' them from fighting only a few minutes ago.

* LetsYouAndHimFight: Thor storms Olympus to fight Herc (whom he believes is a traitor), but Zeus later sets things straight. Then TakenUpToEleven when the two start fighting ''again'' over who will rescue Krista and a stupefied Zeus just tells the two of them to stop acting like idiots and team up.

* FaceHeelTurn: Subverted trope. In ''Thor #221'', Thor attacks Olympus thinking that Hercules has kidnapped the Asgardian goddess Krista. Hercules has no idea why Thor is calling him out, but (as Herc does) decides to punch first and ask questions later. Zeus then breaks up the fight and hears Thor out, before explaining that Hercules is innocent because he's been at a festival the whole time.
* FrameUp: Ares tries to frame Hercules for the kidnapping of the goddess Krista in order to get Thor and Herc to kill each other.

* WorldsStrongestMan: Issue #222 is the one which established that Thor and Hercules are equals. The two men (the strongest gods of their respective pantheons) arm wrestle each other on Mount Olympus. The contest ends in a draw when the table shatters under the weight of such manlieness.

* BadassInDistress: Thor even comments on the fact that he hates seeing a warrior like Hercules being made so helpless and powerless while captive in the Underworld.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: A variation in that Hercules challenges Captain America's right to give him orders, so he and Cap fight. Cap uses his acrobatics and martial arts skills to evade all of Hercules's attacks, and after a while, Herc is so impressed that he declares UndyingLoyalty to Cap.
* DistressedDude: The Pluto arc in the pages of ''Thor'' had Hercules in need of a champion to fight for him and rescue him from a terrible fate. Even when captive, he fights every step of the way, but it was a lost cause.



* OrpheanRescue: A variation; when Pluto tricks Hercules into taking his place as ruler of the Underworld, Thor has to travel to the underworld and fight as his champion

to:

* MightyGlacier: In his fight with Cap, Hercules is too slow to hit the more agile fighter. But Cap knows that all Herc needs is one half-decent hit to instantly KO him. Fortunately for Cap, seeing his skill and bravery is enough for Herc to concede.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Hercules gives Typhon one of these at the conclusion of their first fight. The Avengers have to hold Herc back from continuing to beat him down, as Hercules didn't know he was knocked out.
* OrpheanRescue: A variation; when Pluto tricks Hercules into taking his place as ruler of the Underworld, Thor has to travel to the underworld and fight as his championchampion.
* SixthRanger: When Hercules first showed up in the book, it was as a "guest" of the team and not an actual member. He still went on missions with them, but more as a useful tagalong. He later joined the team proper and became a full Avenger.
