* ElCidPloy: Gabrielle's village hired a famous warrior to protect them from bandits. Unfortunately, said warrior has a habit of passing out drunk. So, Gabrielle strings him up like a puppet in order to frighten away some soldiers.


Added DiffLines:

** "Prometheus" features a set of three artifacts: the chains that bound the titular titan, a sword which is the only thing that can break those chains, and Hercules' gauntlets. Xena and Hercules spend much of the episode fighting over who uses the sword, as the wielder gets vaporized when they use it against an item that Hephaestus has created.

The series also had several comic book spin-offs by Topps Comics and Dark Horse Comics (including two [[{{Crossover}} crossovers]] with ''Franchise/EvilDead''), which ended following the show's end. However, in 2007, Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights to the comics and published two story arcs (''Contest of Pantheons'' and ''Dark Xena''), which essentially act as a FixFic, [[CanonDiscontinuity reversing many of Season Five's plot developments as well as undoing the season finale]].
