** In the fifth season, Hercules battled against Gilgamesh who was associated with Dahak, a dark god based off the Persian deity Azi Dahaka. Well over ten years later, the anime FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks featured another fight between different incarnations of Hercules and Gilgamesh, who this time was associated with the dark god Angra Mainyu, a Persian destroyer god who was known as the creator of Azi Dahaka.

** Darphus from season one's "The Gauntlet" and "Unchained Heart" (as well as an AlternateContinuity in Part 2 of season 4's "Armageddon Now) is the former [[TheDragon second in command]] of Xena before her HeelFaceTurn. Darphus earns Xena's [[EvenEvilHasStandards disfavor]] by sacking innocent villages and slaughtering women and children [[ForTheEvulz for fun.]] When Xena objects, Darphus stages a [[TheStarscream coup on her]] after trying to force her to murder a baby. When Xena survives the gauntlet to leave the army, Darphus tries to have her killed anyways. After being killed by Xena, Darphus is [[BackFromTheDead revived by Ares]] and carries on a brutal campaign of slaughter where he also has care of Ares' monstrous pet. Darphus feeds innocent victims to said monster and shows no hesitation in killing his own men as well just for displeasing him.
** [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Mayhem]] from season 4ís "Prodigal Sister" is the leader of a renegade band of Amazons that routinely terrorizes the countryside in Greece and massacres entire villages, except for the little girls she turns into her weapons. Most Amazons who did raids would go for minimal loss of life, and are appalled by Mayhem's actions. She personally [[WouldHurtAChild blinds Ruun]], (just after killing his parents and kidnapping his sister who she turns into a mindless killing machine) who's only five years old. Fast forward years later, when most of the renegade Amazons have rejoined the Amazonian Nation, Mayhem still leads raids which RapePillageAndBurn entire villages for fun. When confronted by Hercules, she laughs off that her actions will lead to an Amazon Civil War which will be crushed by the outside world. And finally, when confronted on what she did to Ruun and his sister Siri after she is beaten by Hercules she flat out says [[ItsAllAboutMe "So what, I turned her into the greatest Amazonian Warrior!"]]

* VillainDecay: Ares gets hit with this the hardest of all out of all the villains. None of his very early appearances were played for laughs and whenever he was involved, his stories usually involved serious matters like recruiting child soldiers or human sacrifice. When he made his physical debut in the show in the Golden Hind trilogy, he was an outright KnightOfCerebus whose very presence took the show to a darker and more tragic level when he took away Hercules' strength, had Herc's new wife Serena killed, framed Hercules for her murder, and nearly took away everything from the demi-god. When they fought for the first time, Hercules struggled against him and only won a very narrow victory because he had a Hind's blood soaked dagger on him which he managed to use to his advantage and force Ares to surrender and submit to his demands. From the fourth season onwards, almost every other time they fight, Ares pretty much gets turned into a punching bag for Hercules and almost every fight they have ends with Ares getting beat down. By the end of the series, Ares' dignity is completely gone and when Hercules and Iolaus make fun of him, the god of war's self-esteem is pretty much crushed and he walks off crying. In Xena, Ares appears to subvert his decay when he convinces Zeus to lift his ban on killing Hercules but nothing ever comes of it because he gets knocked out by Hera before he can even fight Hercules. And if the Hercules-in-modern-times episodes are anything to go by, Ares feuded with Hercules for centuries leading up to the late 90s and still had absolutely nothing to show for it.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The disclaimer included in "A Star to Guide Them" (see below) becomes a lot less funny knowing that Kevin Sorbo has since become [[TheFundamentalist a religious fundamentalist]] [[HolierThanThou on par with Pat Robertson]].

* GrowingTheBeard: The fifth season brought a more serialized (and at points, darker) approach to storytelling than previously, as well as giving the main cast members wider acting opportunities. The season also benefited from Kevin Sorbo having fully recovered from medical problems that prompted lessened roles the previous season. Both Sorbo and Hurst have spoken highly of Season 5, citing the energy that Kurtzman and Orci brought in as showrunners.
