* 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'' understands that he screwed up and apologizes.]] Later, it's even revealed that even Kyknos (Ares's son) was brought back because of this.

* CrisisCrossover: Subverted. Chaos War is a large, multiversal-threat event and Hercules gathers all of Earth's heroes to fight [[BigBad Chaos King]], but at the end of the first issue almost all of them are moved out of the equation [[spoiler: by being comatose]], leaving only a small number of gods and dead superheroes to fight him.

* IKnowYouKnowIKnow: Pythagoras [=DuPree=] gives Amadeus a gun and challenges him to a duel centered on this. As they both have the hypermind power, they continually calculate what the other is thinking of, trying to figure out a shot that they cannot predict or cannot deflect. [[spoiler: Amadeus wins, in a way - [=DuPree=] fails to account for the fact that Amadeus has no reason to even stick around, so he leaves rather than submit to any more mind games.]]

* SpinOff: ''Dark Avengers: Ares'' was supposed to be one for ComicBook/DarkAvengers, but featuring Herc's flagship enemy and referencing several plot points from Incredible Hercules [[spoiler: including bringing back a villain introduced in one of the series' flashbacks]] makes it more a spin-off to this.

* XanatosGambit:[[spoiler: Chaos King used one in Chaos War, taking over Zeus' body and attacking Hercules and the God Squad. He either would have killed them or, the one he deployed, used the dying Zeus to convince Hercules to contact the council of gods, leading him to their hideout.]]
** Athena's behavior in [[spoiler: Chaos War]] was essentially this. [[spoiler: Either Chaos King would destroy the Universe and a new one would be born to take its place, or he would do enough damage before being defeated that the gods would have to rebuild it from scratch.]]
* XanatosSpeedChess: At the end of "Sacred Invasion", Athena's plan has the unexpected consequence of [[spoiler: putting [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal]] dark god Amatsu-Mikaboshi in command of an army of hundreds of intergalactic slave-gods]]. This is good news, apparently.

* OvercomeWithDesire: During Hercules' Ninth Labor, he snuck into the Amazon's domain and into the tent of Queen Hippolyta to steal her girdle and complete the labor. However, she woke up during the attempt and pulled a knife on him. However, they both fell victim to LoveAtFirstSight and began having sex right then and there. This pissed off Hera, who then disguised herself as an Amazon and falsely raised the alarm that [[FalseRapeAccusation Hercules was assaulting the queen]], forcing him to run away with the girdle and Hippolyta to become a broken-hearted WomanScorned. Hercules's recounting of the event acts as the current page quote.

* 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.
