** When Hercules arrives in Thebes, there's a wall inscribed with the words "The end is near" at the same time that a crazed man comes around shouting the same message. A few steps later, the same wall says "Fin," which is Latin for "end." Very near, indeed.

** When Herc digs around in the river, he's muttering that "A hero is only as good as his weapon!" He pulls a fish out of the river. 'Fish' is also a slang term for somebody completely clueless and inexperienced, as in 'fish out of water'.

** Zeus is portrayed as a light-hearted, if not buffoonish king and loyal husband to Hera. While the [[WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}} spin-off series]] brings up his flaws -- like forgetting he and his wife's anniversary, occasionally losing his temper and the whole "Prometheus" thing -- Zeus' frequent infidelity is never brought up (most likely non-existent to keep the G-Rating).
** Hera gets this treatment even more so. In the original myth, Heracles was not Hera's child and was a product of her husband cheating on her. Feeling spiteful, Hera actively sabotaged his life and tried to make his suffer, even [[spoiler:forcing him to kill his own family]]. Here, Hercules is ''her'' son and no mention of Zeus cheating on her is ever brought up, so the adaptation portraying Hera as the kind, patient and level-headed of the two. Even in the episode "Hercules and the Return of Typhon" it is revealed that [[spoiler:she was the one who threw the lightning bolt that led to Typhon's defeat and that she allowed Zeus to take the credit for image reasons]].

''Hercules'' is entry #35 of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, released in 1997. Being a lighthearted musical comedy that serves as a change of pace after Disney attempting [[Disney/TheLionKing three]] [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} epic]] [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame features]], this film is a ''[[InNameOnly very]]'' [[TheThemeParkVersion loose]], [[LighterAndSofter family]] [[DisneyFication friendly]] [[PragmaticAdaptation adaptation]] of the myth of Heracles, being to [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]] what Disney/{{Aladdin}} was to the Literature/ArabianNights.

The film is also adapted into a level called Olympus Coliseum in the ''[[Franchise/KingdomHearts Kingdom Hearts]]'' series… [[RecurringLocation he]][[ExaggeratedTrope avi]][[TropeCodifier ly.]] It has appeared in seven out of eight games, and even in the game it didn't appear in, the world's theme music was used in another world. Hades is even the most recurring Disney Villain in the series besides Maleficent [[note]]the biggest Disney Villain of the series[[/note]] herself, probably because you can always rely on getting the big name of James Woods to play him.

* PragmaticAdaptation: The [[Myth/ClassicalMythology original Heracles myth]]--and Greek Mythology in general--were as family unfriendly as you can get and had a ''lot'' of built-in ValuesDissonance (the basic conflict ''alone'' was unacceptable for a family film, since Hercules is a product of Zeus' adultery with a mortal, and Hera, Zeus' wife, is the villain who constantly makes Hercules' life miserable because of this), so the studio was forced to [[DisneyFication heavily rework the concept]]; it borrows the character names (not so much the personalities), story points and the setting from the myths, but [[AdaptedOut throws out]] and [[CanonImmigrant adds in]] things from other parts of Greek Myth (such as Pegasus and the Muses, who were not in the original Heracles story), and reworks everything else (such as expanding Hades role in the story [[EveryoneHatesHades by turning him into the main villain]]), ultimately making the film less an adaptation of Greek Mythology and more like a [[XMeetsY mashup of]] Film/SupermanTheMovie and Film/{{Rocky}} [[RecycledInSpace set in a]] [[TheThemeParkVersion burlesque of Ancient Greece.]]

* RecycledInSpace: The movies plot is basically Film/SupermanTheMovie and Film/{{Rocky}} IN ANCIENT GREECE! This was no accident either--John Musker and Ron Clements, the directors of the film, are admitted superhero comic fans.
