** At least some versions say that the reason Zeus and Hermes were in that village was specifically because Zeus was pondering obliterating mankind and wanted to see firsthand if he should. After the first few houses rejected them, Zeus was somewhat understandably seething, but Hermes managed to convince him to give it another try in the hopes of finding a decent family. Repeat, Zeus, nigh-almighty king of the gods with the HairTriggerTemper and BoltOfDivineRetribution, ''listened to his son instead of getting even angrier''.

** On the flipside, when Medusa was slain, her sister Euryale [[CryCute let out a mournful scream]]. Just because the gorgons were monsters didn't mean they weren't sisters.

**In several versions of the myth, including a few hyms, Hades also apologizes for having kidnapped her and hopes that Persephone can forgive him for that. Unlike his little brother Zeus, Hades actually feels bad about his more questionable actions.

* Many versions of Hades and Persephone's story. In particular, there's the fact that Hades was probably the only Olympian who has never, ''ever'' cheated on his wife; the one time he came close to it, it was because ''the girl'' was trying to seduce ''him!'' [[ClingyJealousGirl And then Persephone came...]]
** A few versions of the myth, had it that Hades actually went to Zeus and ask him for permission to marry Persephone. So Hades actually went through genuine legal means to marry her, as oppose to the standard "I am a god so I can just rape you" that most Jerkass gods do.

* Psyche, after enduring all manner of trials (while pregnant) to gain back her husband, Eros, not only wins over Aphrodite's tasks, but is taken to Olympus to live with Cupid forever, and their daughter is named Delight. Even more so, Zeus... y'know, ''frickin' Zeus'', actually get involved in doing this by approving the immortality of Psyche and then personally tells Aphrodite to cut this whole crap at once on the request of Eros.
