* EvilIsCool: Hades, though anyone with magical powers and the voice of James Woods would be cool.

** The Hades in this movie is incredibly similar to ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''s Hades, both even having a CreditsGag. It's almost as if Disney predicted another Hades would troll us again.

* GeniusBonus: Many, for the Greek mythology buffs in the audience. "Zero to Hero" is full of half-second allusions to Hercules' Labors, famous Greek (and Roman) art, as well as ancient Greek culture.

* {{Fanon:}} Meg becoming a goddess and joining Hercules on Mount Olympus is a very popular notion.

* AmericansHateTingle: While the rest of the world's audiences and critics liked the movie well enough (though, of course, not to the extent of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' and the earlier Renaissance films), The Greeks ''despised'' this movie, [[BannedInChina even denying the film a premiere in Greece]]. They didn't care much for the many glaring mistakes to their own mythology, even if the rest of the movie was pretty decent. It's kind of similar to how a lot of American historians hated ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' (even though that didn't get banned; it just got slammed with a lot of criticism) while other countries liked it well enough.

** The part where Herc's foster parents find him up to when he talks with Zeus for the first time would make for a pretty good "''[[Film/{{Superman}} Superman: The Movie]]''[=/=]''Series/{{Smallville}}'' in Ancient Greece" musical.

''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' writer Creator/GrantMorrison even considers Hercules to be the best Superman movie.

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: In the myths, Hercules actually did free Prometheus from his punishment. In fact, a lot of the background behind the show is fairly well grounded in ancient Greek myths and history, far more so than the movie and more savvy viewers can get the references and AllohistoricalAllusion behind the references.


Added DiffLines:

* UnconventionalLearningExperience: For all its mangling and bowdlerizing of Greek myths, this cartoon was sufficiently grounded in research on ancient myths and Greek history (moreso than the movie) that viewers, especially international viewers who have no grounding in Western culture, learnt a great deal about Ancient Greece, learning names and stories of Prometheus, Orpheus, Medusa by unpacking references to the Trojan War, and references to Greek City States.
