* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Hercules' quest to meet his father face-to-face, especially as ''HTLJ'' showed their first offical meeting.

* MyGreatestFailure: In "Teacher's Pests," Hercules and Jason discover that Fiducius's much and praised son actually washed out of the Academy and ran away.
-->'''Fiducius:''' He was a good boy once, good student. Made me proud. Then he started getting into scrapes--small ones at first. I went easy on him, covered for him, let him get away with things. He got wilder and wilder, uncontrollable. I didn't know what to do with him. One day, he just ran away. You wonder why I'm so hard on you boys? It's because I don't want the same thing to happen to you. I don't want to let you down the way I did him.



* OvershadowedByAwesome: Iphicles is mentioned in the PilotMovie as having run away from home out of frustration over being in Herc's shadow.



* ShipTease: Hercules and Cyane



* TheUnfavorite: Iphicles is mentioned, once, in the movie, and not at all in the series. This despite the fact that since he's the same age as Hercules, he should in theory be around occasionally. Or get mentioned once or twice.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Though the movie provided an explanation why he wasn't around, some found it odd that Iphicles never made an appearance on the show or was even mentioned.

* DuelingShows: Came about just as TV show version of Disney's WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}} was airing as well.



* IronyAsSheIsCast: RyanGosling is a famously skinny guy, playing one of the great strongmen of legend.



* TheOtherDarrin: Ian Boen played Young Herc in the pilot movie and on ''HTLJ''. As Boen opted not to continue, Ryan Gosling took over for the series.
** There was also Sharon Tyrell, who played Herc's mother, Alcmene, in the series. In the pilot movie, she was played by Rachel Blakely. In ''HTLJ'', Alcmene as a young woman was played by Kim Michalis.
