'''''Class of the Titans''''' is a Canadian animated television series created by Studio B Productions and {{Nelvana}}. The series lasted from December 2005 to February 2008 for a total of 52 episodes in two seasons.

The plot is the following: [[BigBad Cronus]], [[TimeMaster the God of Time]], has escaped from the Underworld at midnight on New Year's. With an army of giants behind him, Cronus intends to [[TakeOverTheWorld conquer and destroy the world]]. Cronus escaped by aligning the planets which gave him enough power to get the party started.

While the gods of Olympus no longer have the power to stop Cronus on their own, they bring together the seven teenage descendants of heroes from Greek mythology. Under the guidance of the gods, these chosen ones are the only ones with the power to save the world from the encroaching evil.

Heroes:

* [[TheHero Jay]] - "The Leader," descendant of Jason of the Argonauts.
* [[TheSmartGuy Odie]] - "The Brains," descendant of Odysseus.
* [[TheBigGuy Herry]] - "The Brawn," descendant of Hercules (Heracles in Greek mythology).
* [[TheLancer Atlanta]] - "The Hunter," descendant of Atalanta (the opening theme says Artemis, but WordOfGod admitted that this was a mistake).
* [[JackOfAllStats Archie]] - "The Warrior," descendant of Achilles.
* [[TheChick Theresa]] - "The Fighter," descendant of Theseus.
* [[SixthRanger Neil]] - "The Good Looking," descendant of Narcissus.

----
!!This show contains examples of:

* TheAce: Adonis.
* AccidentalHero: In the episode "Labour Day", it is shown that [[spoiler: Herry]] was the one who completed a few of the 12 labors of Hercules. Hercules merely showed up in time for the masses to give him the credit.
* ActionGirl: Atlanta, especially in "Tantalize This" when she expresses a desire to prove she can be just as strong if not stronger than all the boys on the team.
** Theresa, too, although to a much lesser extent. She can still hold her own in a hand-to-hand fight, and can manage just fine with her nunchuks.
* AllMythsAreTrue: At least Greek myths, with an offhand remark to the Egyptian in one episode.
* AlmightyJanitor: Mr. Suez is [[spoiler: [[SdrawkcabAlias Zeus]], the king of the ancient Grecian Gods.]]
** The gods in general get bonus points for having their secret entrance ''in a janitor's closet''.
* AngryGuardDog: Cerberus, guardian of the gates to underworld. Known to become a [[BigFriendlyDog big friendly dog]] when in the prescence of his master Hades or whenever he hears lyre music.
** Also with everyone who is entering the underworld. Those that try to leave though...
* BadassInANiceSuit: Cronus.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The first thing Cronus does after breaking out of Tartarus is walk up to [[BlindSeer the Oracle]] and ask; "What, if anything, can stop me?" For an answer, he is shown images of the seven teens. This is the main reason the Olympian gods recruit them in the first place.
* BigBad: Cronus.
* BlackAndNerdy: Odie, natch.
* BoisterousBruiser: Herry.
* BornLucky: Neil. It's the main reason why he's useful on the team.
* BoundandGagged: A decent ammount of it happens. To males and females alike.
* CanNotSpitItOut: Archie has this ''bad''.
** Theresa and Jay both have their moments, though much less frequently.
* [[TheChosenOne The Chosen Seven]]
* ChristmasEpisode: "The Game Plan".
* CompositeCharacter: Cronus is predominantly based on the father of the gods and the leader of the Titans. He, however, also has time powers associated with Chronos, a entirely different deity.
* ConflictBall: [[spoiler: Theresa]] never had a problem with her life as a hero before the season two finale.
* ConspicuousCGI: The cars in the background of the city are this, unlike Herry's truck which is drawn and animated.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Neil complains about the heat in a volcano one episode, but is otherwise played straight with Archie and Atlanta jumping on rocks in the lava.
* CoolOldGuy: The Oracle and Mr. Suez. Hera is an CoolOldLady.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The ''first'' thing Cronus does after escaping Tartarus is go to the Oracle to find out if there is anyone who can stop him, completely averting NothingCanStopUsNow. He then proceeds to target who he thinks is the weakest link, Neil, and almost downright wins. Throughout the rest of the series, Cronus will prove GenreSavvy, which is what makes him so dangerous, even when his titanic ego sometimes becomes his undoing.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Athena.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Naturally, since the god of time wants to take over and enslave all of mankind.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Archie, we're looking at you.
* EvilLaugh: Cronus has a maniac one that sometimes boarders on LaughingMad.
* ExactWords: In "Road to Hades", the group is told not to stray off the path - but in order to reach the field of asphodel flowers they need to do just that. Odie realizes that if they fill their shoes with the gravel from the path, they're technically still walking on it.
* FakeDefector: Odie pulls this off in the episode "Trojan Horse".
* FamousAncestor: Built on it.
* FireForgedFriends: They were all complete strangers until they were attacked by Cronus' mooks and were saved and brought to New Olympus.
* FieryRedhead: Atlanta and sometimes Theresa.
* FluffyTamer: Hermes seems to have shades of this. He tames ''griffins'' on the side and even baby-talks to them.
* GentleGiant: Herry, unless you hurt his Granny.
* GiantEnemyCrab: [[spoiler: Evil Theresa]] summons one in the finale.
* GiantMook: Literally; Cronus has giants for henchmen.
* GuileHero: Odie is just as sly as his ancestor.
* HalloweenEpisode: "See You at the Crossroads".
* HeroesWantRedHeads: Two examples actually. Theresa and Jay and Archie and Atlanta. Special mention to the fact that they're all heroes. And if you count Atlanta and Pan, that's actually three.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler: Theresa comes to hate the gods and goes about stealing their powers and turning them mortal, thus effectively becoming a god herself. Lampshaded by Zeus in their battle in order to bring her back to her senses.]]
* HiddenDepths: Archie has read the old Greek poems, such as ''Literature/TheIliad''.
* HollywoodHacking: Odie pulls this off from time to time.
* IdenticalGrandson: Jay and Jason, but surprisingly averted with everyone else.
* IJustWantToBeBadass: Jay has this sort of attitude at first, since he's the only one who doesn't have a cool ability.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Applies to several characters, but most notably [[spoiler: Theresa, in the series finale]].
* TheImmune: Archie.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Aphrodite.
* InsultBackfire: In the episode "Man's Worst Enemy", the protagonists discover that the lyre can be used to calm Cerberus down. This prompts the following exchange:
--> '''Odie:''' But who plays the lyre these days? It's so lame.
--> '''Theresa:''' I do.
* ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne: [[spoiler: Theresa, but she gets over it.]] See below.
* JackOfAllStats: Archie seems to be this. Strong, but not as much as Herry, fast and agile but not as much as Atlanta and smart but not as much as Odie. In a way, he has the perfect balance.
* TheJailer: Kampe, the jailer of Tartarus. Cronus was the only prisoner to have ever escaped under her watch. She hopes to correct this, even if it means sacrificing others to do so.
* JerkassFacade: Archie is normally an aloof DeadpanSnarker who really is a big softy inside.
* LargeHam: Cronus. Does not make him any less of a threat. Being voiced by DavidKaye helps.
-->"Sleep well, mortals. Tomorrow brings the dawn of a new era, and those who live through it will serve me... Neh, who am I kidding? No one's going to live through it! Ha ha ha! No one! Aha ha ha!"
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: In the episode "Forget Me Not", the entire cast, except Neil, lose their memories due to exposure to the river Lethe. [[AmnesiacGod This also includes Cronus.]]
* LastMinuteHookup: [[spoiler: Jay and Theresa]].
* MixAndMatchCritters: Being based on Greek mythology, this pops up a lot when dealing with monsters. The chimera is a lion/goat/snake creature, the minotaur is half-bull half-human, griffins are lion/bird animals and Typhoeus is a winged beast with ''snakes'' for legs.
** In an early episode, Cronus takes one of his giant henchmen and swaps his upper torso with a bear. He turns another giant into a spider-monster-thing. Just ''because'' he can. He's a God.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Seriously, she taught her grandson Herry how to fight. Said grandson will also not like it.
* NotAMorningPerson: Neil; it's one of the few times we see him with messed up hair.
* ObliviousToLove: Atlanta apparently, since she's the only one who doesn't know that Archie likes her.
* TheOnlyOne: In the finale, Zeus explains why they don't take care of Cronus themselves.
--> "We don't know what it's like to be mortal. That's why gods can't be true heroes, we can't be hurt, so we can't take real risks or make genuine sacrifices."
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: The teen heroes all had regular lives before weird things started to happen and they were swept away to be trained as heroes. Though they were aware and already had their abilities, like when Herry was not surprised that he could beat a couple of trolls. Jay is the most ordinary, with no obvious special ability.
* PoliceAreUseless: Usually played straight whenever the kids are running all around the city chasing Grecian monsters, but justified in "Breathtaking Beauty" because the police can't stop a Sphinx from eating whoever she wants.
* PropheciesAreAlwaysRight: As the Oracle says himself, he's always right without a mistake in over 4000 years.
* ProphecyTwist: [[spoiler: In the finale, the heroes defeat Cronus, but he is still alive with all his powers intact and free by the end of it.]]
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: A bunch of mortal teenagers up against an immortal god. Justified, as it was foretold that descendents of Greek heroes would be able to stop him and PropheciesAreAlwaysRight.
* RedHeadedHero: Theresa and Atlanta.
* RefusalOfTheCall: Archie at first, [[spoiler: Theresa]] later. But YouCantFightFate.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Played straight. Many antagonists are reptilian.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Neil.
* SdrawkcabAlias: [[spoiler: Mr. Suez is actually Zeus]].
* ShipTease: For Archie/Atlanta and Theresa/Jay.
* ShoutOut: The episode title "They Might be G.I. Ants" refers to the band "They Might be Giants".
** There are numerous [[ShoutOut shout outs]] to Creator/RayHarryhausen's Greek mythology movies. Especially the Kraken episode. The Kraken is actually a [[NorseMythology Norse]] critter, whose only connection to Greek myth is the movie ''ClashOfTheTitans''. And then of course, [[CaptainObvious there's the show's title.]]
* SinisterScythe: Cronus's, which ''also'' shows up in Greek mythology.
* SinsOfOurFathers
* SuperSpeed: Atlanta's main ability.
* TakenForGranite: "Sibling Rivalry" features Medusa and her two sisters. It is also explicitly stated in the episode that anything that gets turned to stone stays that way forever.
** "Road to Hades" has the teens, minus Jay, venturing into the Underworld on a mission to save him from death. They were warned ''not'' to stray off the path. What does Neil do? Walk off the path. What happens to him? He gets turned into a stone statue. Granted, he did turn back to normal when he was set on the path again.
* WelcomeBackTraitor: [[spoiler: Theresa.]]
* WhenThePlanetsAlign: Cronus uses it to free himself from Tarturus.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Archie is ''afraid'' of water. This is actually quite [[{{Irony}} ironic]] since Achilles had gained his famed invulnerability when his mother dipped him in the River Styx (holding him by the [[AchillesHeel heel]]). However, this may have actually been explained off-screen in the episode "Forget Me Not". When the heroes visit their ancient counterparts in Hades, Archie says "that explains it" to Achilles. We never find out what he was talking about. It's easy to see why, at least for Achilles, being held by your heel and dipped into the River of the Underworld by your mother as an infant might leave lasting phobias. This is even more so since Achilles' mother was a sea deity.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: During the finale, [[spoiler: Theresa]] [[TenMinuteRetirement becomes tired of having to save the world]] every week and blames the gods for putting everybody in this situation to being with. [[spoiler: Theresa]] then goes about stealing some of the gods' powers and ''using'' them. Before long, [[spoiler: Theresa]] begins systematically hunting down everyone of the Greek pantheon to take away their powers so the teens can have "normal lives" again.
* YouNeverAsked: Atlas' response when Odie asks him why he didn't tell the heroes of Atlantis' location earlier.
