** On the subject... Nessus was the one who KILLED Hercules in myths.... and he's still alive. Hercules has to watch out.

* The Titans are made of rock, ice, lava and tornado. They are actually earth, water, fire and air, the basic elements of life, only in their most destructive form. The muses say they have been there when Earth was born. Could they be like the " side effects" of it's creation?

* In the usual HappyEnding, Hercules renounces his immortality in order to live with Meg. Now, this may be a good way to end a Disney classic. But...did we forget he became a *MORTAL* again? Unless he and Meg will spend the rest of eternity in the Elysian Fields, they will age, die, and descend in the river of death as everyone else did earlier (thereby, Herc was stuck in a MortonsFork, as he had to decide about entering into Mount Olympus and leave Meg alone, or abandoning it once again and spend the rest of his life as a mortal). I wonder if this time Zeus will tolerate an exception to the rule, for his son already experienced a breath-taking dive in that place. And let's not forget Hades is still stuck there (yeah, he somehow could think about this FridgeHorror thread as a TakingYouWithMe). This may also explain why Zeus agreed to forge a new constellation: although Hercules, who was born as a GOD, would have spent his eternity in the Underworld, his legend would have lived on with him...on the sky whence it came from.

** Though to be fair, it happened more than once in the real myths that a genuien god would be able to deify their chosen mortal bride.

** Most likely, he "enlisted" her services sometime in the 18 years Hercules spent growing up - Hades never even mentioned or hinted at having her at the beginning of the film, even offhandedly.

* Even though the ending of this movie was treated as a HappyEnding, no good can really come out of it. Hercules will eventually die, and poor Zeus and Hera will have to watch and then suffer with it for all of eternity. Keep in mind that those two already missed out on his whole childhood, and now this! Even if he does ascend to Mt. Olympus after his death (since he did earn his godhood, he simply chose to give it up), there's no way Meg will be allowed up there, meaning Herc will have to live for eternity alone, while the love of his life is stuck floating in a river. Even if he was able to save her from the face of death before, I doubt he can do anything about her dying of old age.

* Hercules' last deal with Hades--"[Meg] goes. [Hercules] stays" in the River Styx. Even with the whole "you'll be dead before you get there" caveat, it would seem Hercules broke the deal by leaving the Underworld, right? Not exactly; if you watch closely, Hades and Hercules never shook on the deal. It was never binding, so technically there was no deal for either party to go bwck on.

* The tallest one of The Fates was originally keeping the other ones from telling Hades the future. They only told him their prophecy after he gave back them back the eye. Now can anyone tell me how Perseus had to blackmail them into giving him help to defeat Medusa?
