* ArbitrarySkepticism: Phil refuses to believe Hercules is the son of Zeus, yet he mentions have also trained Perseus, who was also one of Zeus' sons.



** A major example of bowdlerising from Greek mythology; for example, besides a total change of Hades' personality, Hercules is the son of Zeus ''and'' Hera.

While far from Disney's most successful movie thanks to competition, it made plenty of money and was still very successful when compared to the Disney franchise as a whole. Its sense of humour was compared to that which Creator/RobinWilliams brought to {{Disney/Aladdin}}, showcasing a villain both competent and hilarious. Some mark it as the turning point where Disney no longer confined humour to incompetent sidekicks.

* SadlyMythtaken: Frequent but given the nods it seems like the writers ARE familiar with Greek Mythology and merely dealing with PragmaticAdaptation, necessary due to the film having to be acceptable to kids.

* VanillaEdition: This became one of the first four movies in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon to [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo receive]] a UsefulNotes/{{DVD}} release, as part of the ''Walt Disney Limited Issues'' series in late 1999.[[note]]Its DVD came out one week after the initial release of ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', and the same day that ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' and ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' made their DVD debuts.[[/note]] Unfortunately, the disc contains only a non-anamorphic presentation of the movie, a making-of featurette that runs less than 10 minutes, and a Ricky Martin music video for the Spanish version of "Go the Distance". A second DVD release as part of the ''Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection'' made literally no improvement to the picture or the extras. The UsefulNotes/BluRay has vastly improved picture and sound, but just one additional bonus feature: a sing along of "Zero to Hero".

* EatingTheEnemy: the first monster the titular character faces is a dragon-like beast that's able to swallow him up. Miraculously, he cut himself out of the beast's throat before he hit the stomach. Unfortunately, he soon finds that whenever the beasts head is chopped off, multiple new ones grow in its place. Eventually, the monster gains many heads and pins him to a wall. It then tries to eat him again but Hercules is able to crush the beast under a rock slide before it can.
