* ActionCommands: Entirely optional in the DS game. Doing short touch screen powerups will boost your skills or magic notably though.

* BoisterousBruiser: Look no further than the DS game... Heracles, Heracles, Heracles, Heracles... Did I mention Heracles?
** Which one?
*** [[UpToEleven All of them.]]

The two most notable: [[spoiler:the real Heracles joining your party in place of his brother's ghost]], [[spoiler:Eris regaining her true form and the power that comes with it]], and [[spoiler: Axios fusing with Agon getting an enormous power boost from that]].

* TheFogOfAges: ''Glory of Heracles III'' is the earliest known videogame to feature a protagonist who is an immortal suffering from amnesia. The plot element is used again in a later sequel, ''Glory of Heracles'' for the DS, where the protagonist is also an amnesiac immortal.

* OneSteveLimit: Averted: there's no less than 3 characters that call themselves Heracles, 2 of them being playable characters. For convinence's sake, the first one is a SilentProtagonist and [[MyNameIsQuestionMarks goes by ??? until the player gives him a nickname]] that doubles as his real name for the rest of the game and the third is a NPC with a title of General Heracles.

The first two games in the series, available on the [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem Famicom]] are pretty much just straight-up ''DragonQuest'' [[FollowTheLeader clones]], although the complete and total focus on Myth/GreekMythology (right down to using the proper Greek name of Greek mythology's legendary hero) was and is unique for the genre. The latest title, released for the NintendoDS, includes light strategy elements, making the game feel similar to ''VideoGame/GoldenSun''.

* UnidentifiedItems: The NintendoDS version has rusty items which need to be taken to a polisher to make them proper weapons.

** Then again... it's copies are fragile and thus can be Overkilled for MP Recovery...
*** Yes, but that's the first time a boss does something of the sort. It gets players by surprise and not everyone understand the trick on the first go.

* TakeThat: On the DS game, when it is first suggested the amnesiac hero comes up with an alias, Leucos suggests [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]]. Axios' response amounts to, "What kind of name is that? It doesn't even sound Greek!".

* ToHellAndBack: In the third game: outside of the first incident, there are holes to the underworld all over the place. Jump in, find a treasure chest, and hop on a geyser to pop right out.
** In the 4th game, Hades sends the party to Tartarus, however unlike the 3rd game, there's a secret exit.
