** They're both; their cruelty stems from pettiness and boredom. Ares gets bored, so people die horribly to amuse him. This is hardly an either/or situation. And let's be fair, paradise or not, to describe horribly murdering someone as 'doing them a favour' is, at the very least, a pretty callous (if not outright sociopathic) attitude. The creatures in Warcraft are animated pixels, the humans Ares' armies are butchering are living people. There's a pretty big difference.

*** There were no cameras, film, or even accurate portraits available back then. Short of having a statue built in your image or your profile on a coin, there was no way to preserve what you looked like--and even then, it was dependent on people recognizing you. We know roughly what Caesar looked like, because coins were minted in his image, but the average person didn't have that privilege. Also, travel was harder and people were more isolated. You could have a hundred doppelgangers running around and never know it. It's likely that people had a rough idea of Xena's description--tall, dark hair, blue eyes--but she was probably more recognizable by the giant murderous burninating army that followed in her wake. On her own, and especially in normal peasant clothes, she would blend right in, noticeable only as a particularly tall, attractive woman.

*** This is supported by the fact that Calisto was able to impersonate Xena successfully despite having no resemblance to Xena at all.

*** Well, the boots and skirt are actually a step up from the sandals and skirt that would have been more accurate for... some of the years that the show mayb e sort of theortetically takes place during, sometimes. Pants would be too hot for an athletic combat style like hers, and she's on the road a lot where cleaning up is difficult. The exposed arms are pretty normal, for all of the reasons already listed. The exposed shoulders and cleavage... besides the aspect of ventilation/cleanliness, I think it might serve as a target, to make sure missiles are aimed high, where she can see them and grab/ dodge, instead of at her abdominal region, where they might pass unnoticed through the the armor, or perhaps injure a spinning, kicking leg. Not to mention, she's Xena, so I'm not she even CARES about armor. I think she just wears the outfit to pick up girls.

* Did the opening narration bother anyone else? "A mighty Princess forged in the heat of the battle." She was not a Princess. She lived in a village with a mom who owned a tavern and a father who was devoted to Ares.
** She was forged ''into'' a "mighty Princess," perhaps.

****This is the correct answer. It was an honorific Lao Ma intended to give her assuming Xena stayed in Ch'in and became her apprentice. She intended to redeem Xena and make her a war councilor of sorts, hence the title Warrior Princess. Xena probably just liked the sound of it and kept it.

** The sais came after Gabrielle's peace arc. She dumped her staff, got a [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AHandfulForAnEye magical compact]], did yoga, watched Xena get her spine broken and become crippled ''due to her (Gabrielle's) refusal to commit violence'', snapped and killed a bunch of people before being taken down, was crucified, pulled into hell, rescued to heaven, and brought back to life with a pregnant (and not at 100%) Xena. Picking up the Sais was Gabrielle realizing she cannot be a person of total peace, and she accepts violence in defense of others. It was completely logical with her character arc.
*** Eli was NOT with her when she bought them. She also originally picked them out for Xena, then used them herself when they were attacked. Shortly after, she told Eli that before she died, she realized that she could not follow his way of peace and was going to follow Xena's path. So she wasn't "obey"ing Eli since she was no longer following his way. Also Gabby stabbed the boy in S6 E5 after the Eli arcs with Eli nowhere in the show and while she was with Xena not against her and not hating her.

** That was never addressed. The Gods that Xena killed were very rarely even referenced after their deaths, let alone given an episode to depict any sort of afterlife. It's kind of a cool philosophical question: do gods have souls? Do they have their own afterlife? Do they go to Heaven or Hell like Callisto did? Xena doesn't know.

** Like a lot of things that happen with shows that last long enough in general or Spin Offs in particular some of the details clearly weren't worked out long term. Xena is sufficiently famous that she is recognized on sight in most villages, unlike Hercules who often has to introduce himself to people who imagined him taller. The idea that Hercules had never even heard of Ares number one warrior is absurd beyond belief. Its been a while since I watched the episode in question perhaps she was somehow better known as the Warrior Princess than as Xena so he recognized her title and not her or her name.
* What exactly was holding Callisto and Valasca in place when they got dumped into the lava flow? Gods can teleport. Nothing we've seen suggests that any gestures or motions are required. They simply want to be someplace else and they are. It would make some sense if perhaps it was something you needed to be taught but Callisto seems to pick it up as soon as she's free of the lava. From what we've seen a lava flow should have kept two gods busy for however long it took them to stop panicking and realize it's not fatal, just really uncomfortable.
** Notice how when they fall into the lava they're still fighting each other, and when we see them trapped in the lava they're still locked in combat. It seems easy to speculate that what was actually trapping them in place was less the actual lava and more their single-minded desire to kill the other.
* During the Twilight Arc the Gods are trying to kill Xena. They go so far as to personally summon death to personally do the deed. Now perhaps killing Xena was actually beyond her power either because God was protecting her or because of some law but the implication was that she refused which angered the other gods. Fine and well, the episode ends with Xena dying by the hand of three Gods. None of whom question why Death didn't show up to claim her? None whom bothered to contact (nor were they contacted BY) the fates who should have been quite aware that they didn't cut the string? It would be an acceptable oversight if the Fates and Death weren't in the episode itself but they were.
** The whole Twilight Arc has been rightly criticized for shoddy writing. The Olympians became extremely stupid. One example being Xena cannot see invisible being and the gods can effect things while invisible. But none killed Xena.
*** It seemed to have been implied that she was under the protection of a greater power, presumably Elijah's God. Clutching the IdiotBall is probably the best answer here but it is a gross oversight that none of them noticed. Faking your death doesn't work on people who can say "I'll see you in Hell!" and mean they'll see you on a day trip just so they can rub in that you're dead.
*** But there has been established to be more than one afterlife. The Olympians might have assumed Xena and Gabrielle as followers of the monotheist God went to that afterlife.

***Also Valesca doesn't seem to be the brightest, and it's unlikely teleportation would even occur to her. She picked the knife over the mask, which seems to indicate that, given the choice between an intelligent non-violent solution and cutting a bitch, she'd pick violence every time.

** You answered your own question for the most part. Originally Xena was a DistaffCounterpart to Hercules as the daughter of Ares but that was dropped in favor of the romance angle between the two. Though one episode has Xena convince the Fates that Ares was her father and the facts line up well enough to cause her own mother to question it. However Xena's superhuman powers aren't exactly unique. Callisto and Najara both match Xena skill for skill, including Callisto apparently being just as skilled with the Chakram despite apparently not owning one. Every Amazon seems to be nearly on par with Xena as well, close enough anyway that the differences can easily be chalked up to experience and natural skill.

** She's Xena's child but reincarnated from Callisto ergo she looks like both
* If there are multiple other women running around who look like Xena(3 within this show and a 4th going by Lucy Lawless' first appearance in ''Hercules TLJ'') then A) why has she never met them before now since she's traveled much of the world and knows most of Greece, or B) why aren't any of Xena's enemies trying to kill them on sight, OR C) why do NO ONE ELSE mistake any of those women for Xena? They certainly recognize Xena on sight, but not her identical clones?
** First depending on what you do and don't count as cannon there are more Xena clones than than that. Meg (The Barmaid), Diana (The Princess), Lysia (Amazon from Hercules and the Amazon Queen), Lyla ("As Darkness Falls) and then Xena makes five that we know of. Lysia is questionable cannon but she's also an Amazon and probably has minimal contact with people who might mistake her for Xena. Lyla seems to be a bit off the beaten path living someplace that has a sizable centaur population. Basically everybody there knows she isn't Xena and/or doesn't know what Xena looks like and nobody else goes to that town though she might be in trouble if she ever traveled. Meg doesn't act or move anything like Xena. Someone who really knew Xena probably would just think 'gee they look a lot a like' and move on. Hell being a prostitute who looks like Xena would probably fetch top dinar. Diana is a spoiled princess who never travels outside her castle. Virtually nobody has seen her face to face and if they did she again acts and moves nothing like Xena. Finally as well known and traveled as Xena is not everybody knows what she looks like as is evidenced by Hercules himself and the people she has to introduce herself to. She's also gone undercover as scantily clad babe often enough to prove that not she's not quite as famous as it often seems. Finally the people out to kill her probably have a rough estimate of where about she is at any given moment via whatever passes for word of mouth. While it happens less frequently to her than Hercules people are constantly running up to her in bars asking for help. Unless scared villagers are constantly in EVERY town shouting "I need Hercules/Xena" clearly the populace has something along the lines of "Xena was here last week. Headed north to deal with a monster" going on.

*** The title "Warrior Princess" was given to her by Alti. It's never adequately explained, though; it was mostly an artifact from ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', where Xena and her title originated.

Without ever having heard of her, or being told that is her title Hercules refers to her as a Warrior Princess as a nickname. Wait what?

*** "The sais came after Gabrielle's peace arc." Sais were '''totally''' part of Eli's doctrine. He watched her buy them and approved. She continued to be a skin-head racist, she continued to hate Xena, all according to Eli's faith. She killed the innocent Arab boy in the dust-storm saying "I have a Warrior's reactions, but not a Warrior's instincts." Boy was on Xena's side, he held a message scroll, but in the dust-storm it looked like he was threatening her with a knife, so Gabby killed him. That episode '''could''' have motivated Gabrielle to revert to non-lethal Staff, but she continued to obey Eli and continued to use non-violent sais.



** There is no dissonance, the doctrine of non-violence is clearly explained. ''Siege of Amphipolis'', a Peasant puts his hand in his pocket to get his handkerchief. "Gabrielle" kills the Peasant with sais and that murder is a non-violent act. Likewise, when the Amphipolitans murdered Xena's mother, they burnt her to death, so that counts as non-violent. Eli is prophet of the OneTrueGod, so any weapon that Eli approves of is by definition non-violent. I am a puny mortal. I think that KO-ing people is less violent than killing them with sais which proves my inferiority to the OneTrueGod.



*** "Gabrielle" uses sais to pull a sword out of a Mook's hands and throw that sword to non-violently kill another mook. Elijianity = if you hold a sword by its handle and kill bad guys, that's violent; if you use non violent sais to kill people with swords, but don't touch the handle, it#s non-violent.



*** Cluedo / Clue episode, "Gabrielle" thought she had killed the Bounty Hunter with Joxer's poisonous gravy. According to Elijianity, poison is a non-violent method of killing people.
*** Clue episode was that one of Xena's friends had killed the Bounty Hunter in self defence. The resolution was that Argo killed the Bounty Hunter in self defence, but according to Elijianity, when a Horse does self defence, it is less sinful than a Human doing self defence. Eli pulls new non-violence rules out of his ass every single episode.
*** Eli wasn't in that episode, seriously wondering if you know what you're talking about anymore.
*** No, season 5 was all about "Xena" and "Gabrielle" hating each other because Xena killed people will a violent sword whereas "Gabrielle" was morally superior because she killed people with non-violent sais. "Gabrielle" NEVER criticizes "Xena" for killing people with New chakram because according to Elijianity, new chakram is a non violent weapon and non-lethal staff is super-violent weapon.

** That was never addressed. The Gods that Xena killed were very rarely even referenced after their deaths, let alone given an episode to depict any sort of afterlife. It's kind of a cool philosophical question: do gods have souls? Do they have their own afterlife? Do they go to Heaven or Hell like Callisto did? Xena doesnt know.
*** Not that she'd care. Killing someone once was always enough for her. Not that she didnt enjoy killing Callisto again. and again. and again.

**** Can we please delete the posts above that are absolutely incorrect and made up? The ones saying that S5 was all about Xena and Gabrielle hating each other when that didn't happen. And the ones saying that Eli was in episodes that he specifically wasn't. I mean if I edit this to say that season 3 was all about Xena and Gabby flying through space on a flying unicorn, do we keep it up despite it being totally made up?

Without ever having heard of her, or being told that is her title Hercule refers to her as a Warrior Princess as a nickname. Wait what?

**She's Xena's child but reincarnated from Callisto ergo she looks like bkth



** First depending on what you do and don't count as cannon there are more Xena clones than than that. Meg (The Whore), Diana (The Princess), Lysia (Amazon from Hercules and the Amazon Queen), Lyla ("As Darkness Falls) and then Xena makes five that we know of. Lysia is questionable cannon but she's also an Amazon and probably has minimal contact with people who might mistake her for Xena. Lyla seems to be a bit off the beaten path living someplace that has a sizable centaur population. Basically everybody there knows she isn't Xena and/or doesn't know what Xena looks like and nobody else goes to that town though she might be in trouble if she ever traveled. Meg doesn't act or move anything like Xena. Someone who really knew Xena probably would just think 'gee they look a lot a like' and move on. Hell being a whore who looks like Xena would probably fetch top dinar. Diana is a spoiled princess who never travels outside her castle. Virtually nobody has seen her face to face and if they did she again acts and moves nothing like Xena. Finally as well known and traveled as Xena is not everybody knows what she looks like as is evidenced by Hercules himself and the people she has to introduce herself to. She's also gone undercover as scantily clad babe often enough to prove that not she's not quite as famous as it often seems. Finally the people out to kill her probably have a rough estimate of where about she is at any given moment via whatever passes for word of mouth. While it happens less frequently to her than Hercules people are constantly running up to her in bars asking for help. Unless scared villagers are constantly in EVERY town shouting "I need Hercules/Xena" clearly the populace has something along the lines of "Xena was here last week. Headed north to deal with a monster" going on.
