* ThrowItIn: During script readings, the writers and producers were very open to suggestions from Kevin Sorbo, Michael Hurst and main guest actors. This extended to during filming, such as the [[TheSoundOfMusic "Doe, a deer, a female deer"]] exchange in "Encounter."

* StarMakingRole: For Kevin Sorbo and, peripherally, [[XenaWarriorPrincess Lucy Lawless]].
* TakeThat: The tagline for the ''Battle for Mount Olympus'' AnimatedAdaptation brags that it includes "the REAL Hercules", a likely dig at [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Disney's own cartoon version]] that was released less than a year prior.

* WrittenInInfirmity:
** Early into the fourth season, Kevin Sorbo suffered some health issues. To accommodate him, the writers put more focus on Iolaus, produced "Men In Pink" (an Autolycus/Salmoneus episode), utilized Autolycus more and produced three additional Young Hercules episodes. Sorbo actually appeared in all but "Men In Pink" during this period, but his screentime was reduced from its usual length - only increasing the more he recovered.
** During a CrossOver with ''Xena'', Michael Hurst broke his arm while filming a fight scene. Iolaus' arm was subsequently injured in "Cast A Giant Shadow" and was seen in a cast for a couple episodes.

** [[WeirdScience Vanessa Angel]] was originally cast as Xena, but she got sick and was unable to fly out for filming. Melinda Clarke (who would play Velasca on the spin-off) was also in the running at one point.

* ActingForTwo: "Yes, Virginia, There is a Hercules" had Kevin Smith portray both Ares and show writer Jerry Patrick Brown. One particular shot used DoubleVision. Kevin Smith also played Hercules' full human brother Iphicles.
** Michael Hurst played Iolaus and a look-alike distant cousin in "King For A Day" and "Long Live The King." The one time he played Iolaus and Charon in the same episode was "Highway To Hades." He also played Widow Twanky and while Iolaus never appeared in those episodes, Hurst did play a one-scene homeless man role in Twanky's last appearance.
** And Kevin Sorbo in the episodes containing Herc's EvilCounterpart from a MirrorUniverse "The Sovereign".
