* DiplomaticImmunity: Hercules himself is granted quite a fair amount of this from Zeus, with harsh punishments promised to any Olympian who dares to kill Hercules. Not only does this force the gods to pull their punches when fighting Hercules but it even allows Hercules to go around openly insulting the gods and telling the people to rely on themselves with little retaliation from anybody on Mount Olympus. It becomes especially apparent in episodes where if a mortal like Iolaus would show the same amount of pride as Hercules, the gods would come after him mercilessly("Pride Comes Before A Brawl" and "Heedless Hearts") whereas Hercules would suffer no such retribution. And while this protection from Zeus didn't completely protect Hercules from being tormented by gods like Hera or Ares, as his two marriages to Deianira and Serena have shown, it did seem to protect him from some of the more petty and humiliating punishments a god like Ares would dish out to both Iolaus and Autolycus in ''One Fowl Day''.

* FollowTheLeader: The portrayal of Loki in the Norse two-parter has him as a son of Odin, much like the Creator/MarvelComics portrayal.

* SheIsAllGrownUp: Hercules is more than surprised at how gorgeous Psyche turned out, since the last time she saw her she was just a tomboyish little girl.

* BittersweetEnding: Not so much for the show itself but for [[spoiler:Hercules himself when it came to his final appearance in the shared Hercules/Xena universe. In his final appearance in ''God Fearing Child'', he manages to save Xena's baby and finally makes peace with his stepmother Hera. However, it came at the high price of Hera dying right after Herc made his peace with her and Hercules being forced to kill his own father Zeus in order to save Xena's baby, starting a chain of events which would spell the downfall of the Olympian gods. Though, this ending does become less bitter if the Hercules-in-modern-times episodes ''Yes Virginia There Is A Hercules'' and ''For Those Of You Now Joining Us'' are taken into consideration since it shows Hercules moving past the tragedies of his life in ancient times and still leading a happy, heroic, and productive life even into the 20th Century.]]

* DidNotThinkThisThrough: One episode featured a local ruler who spent all his free time in developing primitive industrialization technology that let one man do the work of five... and then realized he couldn't actually use it without putting 80% of his population out of a job.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathIsCheap: Unlike reality, where the destiny of the souls of the departed is left up to faith, in the HTLJ universe, Hercules (and other members of the cast, for that matter) not only ''knows'' where souls go when they die, he's actually ''visited'' the Greek versions of Heaven, Hell, and Limbo on several occasions, sometimes even rescuing friends and loved ones from them (essentially resurrecting said individuals). This is particularly jarring when the main cast is seen mourning a dead loved one, since they all know full well that mortal life is only a part of an eternal journey. In one episode, Hercules is seen greatly lamenting the passing of his mother, despite knowing (and even being shown) that her soul now lives in a perpetual paradise, and that he will eventually see her again when he dies.
