...in which Hera would have been the main antagonist, there would've been more of a focus on the Twelve Labors, and it either wouldn't have had musical numbers or, if it did, they would be more along the lines of those found in its DisneyAnimatedCanon predecessor, ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''.

* Further evidence for this theory-the Muses retelling the story are, in the original mythology, Zeus' children by the Titan Mnemosyne. They may be doing a favor for their father.

[[WMG: The whole movie is a FixFic by Hercules.]]
While he did [[EarnYourHappyEnding earn his happy ending]], his position in Mt Olympus didn't alleviate his trauma over what he went through on Earth. He looked for the Muses, his half-sisters, and asked for a revisionist take on his legend. One where he didn't kill his family in a fit of madness and his life was LighterAndSofter, so as to feel better about everything. Zeus got AdaptationalHeroism because he wanted his dad to look better. Hera is his mother partly because they have come to terms with one another, and partly because he felt a bit embarrassed about being the result of a one-night stand that was also [[BedTrick rape by deceit]] on Zeus' part. As for why Hades is a villain? Probably just because he was trying to think of a villain, and Ares would get all pissy if he chose him and rage while his uncle didn't really care.

* This is pretty much my thinking. They said "He's making it sound like some Greek tragedy", which suggests that the narrator's version of the story--had we been allowed to hear it--would have been, at the very least, a lot more light on the comedy.

Historically speaking, the Ancient Greeks didn't like Hades because he was the God of the Dead, and [[CaptainObvious the Ancient Greeks didn't like death]]. Perhaps Hades got fed up with it?

Hades would be hard-pressed to keep his job after trying to overthrow the pantheon. Hercules will eventually die due to his mortality, and when that happens Zeus will decide to make him the new lord of the underworld. Megara will be his Persephone, and Pain/Panic will keep charge of the dead temporarily(under lock, and as "community service").
* It's also possible that [[MookFaceTurn Pain and Panic might switch sides]] and support Hercules and Megara, possibly because [[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal both of them had enough of Hades' verbal tirades and years of abuse.]]

* And Herc, Meg and the obviously outgoing Pain and Panic will turn the Underworld into a much nicer kind of afterlife, too.

* This ''definitely'' explains [[EverybodyHatesHades Hades' vilification]]: he's one of, if not the ''most'' even-tempered of the gods. Back in Ancient Greece, [[ValuesDissonance Zeus' boorish, whoring ways were awesome and Hades was considered frightening.]] Nowadays, Hades would be seen as a better ruler. Zeus could've demonized his son Ares(especially considering he's TheUnfavorite), but ever since [[UsefulNotes/{{TheRomanEmpire}} his role as Mars]] Zeus got to respect his son. Hades is the villain so that people will like him more.
