** The altered lyrics in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rR5kSy4kkE Lucas Grabeel version]] or the Michael Bolton credits version take the message in another direction that's equally heartwarming. Sure, the initial looking-for-glory lyrics are present, but then it goes into how the heroes' journey is about self-improvement and the love of one's friends and family. It even repeats the "a hero's strength is measured by his heart" message from elsewhere in the movie.

* The opening scene on Olympus, where Zeus is playing with Herc. Zeus is ''such'' an adorably doting father.
* Hercules and Pegasus [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8kq2RuBSYY meeting for the first time]].
** Also, the reunion, where it's played the ''exact'' same way, but with the roles reversed, right down to the headbutt.
* Notice that the cape on his "hero suit" is the shawl his adoptive mom gave him when he left to find answers. She's always with him.
* When Zeus is finally able to talk to his son after so many years he is ecstatic.
* During "One Last Hope" when Herc fails yet another test instead of berating him Phil tells him (in song) that it's not all about power and instead the heart that really matters in being a hero. Then Herc tosses a sword feeling sorry for himself, and he hits the target. The looks on their faces say it all.
** In the Finnish version, Phil says (roughly translated): "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbU7Oe07JFg&t=2m6s This is how you recognise a true hero: listen to your heart--that's how you'll get strong]]". What really [[NarmCharm sells it]] is the tone of utter ''pride'' in Phil's voice.
* In "Zero To Hero" there's a part that shows that Herc gives a lot of the money he's made with his heroics to his mortal adopted parents, and they are very proud of him.
* When Hercules is discouraged about not becoming a true hero, Phil gives him a pep talk.
-->"I've seen 'em all, and I'm telling you, you got something I've never seen before. I can feel it, right down to these stubby bowlegs of mine. There is ''nothing'' you can't do, kid."
* Hercules casually pulls down a tree to retrieve a flower for Megara, hands it to her, and then kisses her on the cheek. [[PostKissCatatonia Megara instantly looks forward with wide eyes as though her thoughts have instantly been banished]] (a milder variant of a HeroicBSOD). She then gives a small smile and touches her hand to her cheek. You can see screencaps of the scene [[http://disneyscreencaps.com/hercules-1997/41/ on this page]].



* The ending song: The gods set an image of Hercules in the stars, and ''That's Phil's Boy''. Even makes the curmudgeonly Phil tear up.
* "People always do crazy things when they're in love."

* The ending song: The gods set an image of Hercules in Seeing Herc on what can only be described as a "love high" after his night out with Meg. You tell the stars, guy is just head over heels for her, and ''That's Phil's Boy''. Even makes the curmudgeonly Phil tear up.it's absolutely adorable.
* Even after a bitter argument with Hercules, when Meg tells Phil that Hercules will die if he doesn't help him, he goes straight back to him and gives him another pep talk that gives him the will to defeat the Cyclops [[spoiler: despite having lost his super strength]].
-->'''Hercules:''' You were right, Phil, dreams are for rookies.\\
'''Phil:''' No, no, no. Giving up is for rookies. I came back because I'm not giving up on you. I'm willing to go the distance. How 'bout you?
* "People always do crazy things when they're in love.""
* When Hercules has to go stop Hades's siege of Mt. Olympus, Phil volunteers to stay behind with the mortally wounded Meg, and he even holds her hand when she starts dying. Like Pegasus, up to this point Phil had hated her since almost the moment they met.
* Meg returning from the dead.



* A whole lot of the lyrics in "Go the Distance", and the message about hope and determination in them.
-->''I have often dreamed of a far-off place, where a great, warm welcome will be waiting for me. Where the crowds will cheer when they see my face, and a voice keeps saying this is where I'm meant to be. I will'' find ''my way. I can go the distance. I don't care how far; somehow, I'll be strong. I know'' every ''mile will be worth my while. I will go most anywhere to feel like I belong.''
** And even when Herc gives up his godhood for Meg, the song still all comes true. He could have had that with the gods but he gets it all just as much with her.
** The altered lyrics in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rR5kSy4kkE Lucas Grabeel version]] or the Michael Bolton credits version take the message in another direction that's equally heartwarming.

** There's also a part in "Zero To Hero" when it shows that Herc gives a lot of the money he's made with his heroics to his mortal adopted parents, and they are very proud of him.
*** Also notice that the cape on his "hero suit" is the shawl his adoptive mom gave him when he left to find answers. She's always with him.

* When Zeus is finally able to talk to his son after so many years he is ecstatic.
** Hercules' reaction to the statue talking to him is a CrowningMomentOfFunny--granted, that's probably how '''any''' ''normal'' person would react if a giant statue came to life and started talking to them.
* Hercules casually pulls down a tree to retrieve a flower for Megara, hands it to her, and then kisses her on the cheek. [[PostKissCatatonia Megara instantly looks forward with wide eyes as though her thoughts have instantly been banished]] (a milder variant of a HeroicBSOD).

* During the final song "A Star is Born", we see the gods making a constellation of Hercules in the sky... And then Phil sees it and overhears someone saying, "That's Phil's boy!"...and as he begins crying, so do we...
** Becomes more Heartwarming when you recognize the guy as the some one who earlier in the film was mocking him and Herc only for he and others to witness themselves Herc became a Hero.
