* JerkassGods: Jupiter could sometimes come off as this for example in one story where he judged the animals' children, to find out which one was most beautiful, and coldly laughed at an ape's attempt. The ape's reaction was to say that Jupiter could have his judgement but [[HeartwarmingMoments to her, her offspring was the most beautiful of all. ]]

Aesop's most famous fables are:

* ''Literature/TheGrasshopperAndTheAnts'': A grasshopper is lazy and does nothing during spring and summer, while the ants work. When winter arrives the ants survive because they harvested food and had built a warm home, while the grasshopper dies from cold and starvation.
* ''Literature/TheTortoiseAndTheHare'': A tortoise and a hare decided to hold a race. The tortoise wins because the hare fell asleep during the race and wasn't in time to cross the finish first.
