* Meg's death. On-screen, no less, we watch her suffering and clearly in pain even as Herc rushes back to see her, and then she dies. And it's no cliché DiedInYourArmsTonight moment - Herc ''doesn't'' get to tell her he's won, or say sorry, or that he loves her. No, he can only cradle her limp, cooling body in his arms and sob ManlyTears. I challenge you ''not'' to cry.

** What makes this all the more tragic and shocking is how dead bodies are never usually shown on screen in kids' movies. Meg's body is prominently featured for a good thirty seconds.

** What makes this all the more tragic I'll bet you cried a bit when Herc sang "I Can Go The Distance." Well guess what? That song so full of joy and shocking is how dead bodies are never usually shown on screen in kids' movies. Meg's body is prominently featured for hope gets a good thirty seconds.sad reprise right here, and it's so ironically tragic. You may cry now.

** Tate Donovan's voice acting is just amazing for this. And even ''PHIL'' is crying during this scene and he hated Meg up until she came to tell him Hercules was in trouble.
--->'''Phil:''' I'm sorry, kid. There are some things you just can't change.
--->'''Hercules:''' (''looking up, determined'') Yes I can.

* While talking with his proud dad about his heroic deeds, he's convinced that he's finally gonna come home. But Zeus tells him he ''is'' proud but he's not yet proven himself a "true hero", being rich and famous doesn't count. Herc asks what more is there, Zeus could only say that [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself he has to discover that for himself]]. After Zeus leaves, Herc slams his fists on the floors in anger and confusion, feeling that he ''still'' isn't good enough.
