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

* Alcmene and Amphytrion finding Hercules and adopting him is a very sweet scene but has a crueler side considering this was a very common practice in ancient Greece. Know as "exposure", unwanted newborns (usually girls) were left out in the wild by their fathers to be "left to their fates". These babies would either die or be adopted by childless couples.

* Whenever wesee the alligning planets, six planets can be seen. In ancient times, five planets were known because those can be seen by the naked eye: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Adding Earth gives us the total of six.

* Why is Hera, the most recognizable {{Yandere}} asshole in Greek mythology is much [[TookALevelInKindness nicer]] in here? {{Disneyfication}} aside, being her ''actual legitimate'' child and a good-looking one to boot (see:Hephaestus) probably helped which prevented her from getting any ideas about driving her actual son mad in the actual myths.

** 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.

** 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.
