YMMV: Glory of Heracles

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The second battle theme is just so damn catchy.
  • Game Breaker: In the second game:
    • The Argus Spear can be used in battle to cast an attack spell for free. It does 85 damage, very few enemies resist its damage, and unlike normal spells, it can never miss. It's far more useful than the majority of the Statue's spells.
    • The Dark Moon weapon does more damage in the Hero's hands than even the Infinity+1 Sword by virtue of hitting twice per turn. To make it even better, Heracles can also wield it.
  • Genius Bonus: In the DS game, the herb that cures Poison is called Mithridate. This is named after Mithridates VI of Pontus, who was said to have built up an immunity to poisons.
  • That One Attack: Some enemies in the second game can break your equipment with their attacks. This typically sets you back thousands of gold.
  • That One Boss:
    • The second game has the Minotaur. If you haven't been grinding, you'll have only the basic healing spell...and the Minotaur will likely kill your party members in one turn each anyway.
      • There's also Medusa, who can inflict petrification. There's one item in the dungeon that protects against it, and its low defense doesn't help against her powerful attacks.
    • The Sphinx in the DS Game. CURSE YOU COPYING!!!!
      • I'd say this boss pretty much qualifies. Though, you can figure out you're supposed to use that one ice spell, what player playing the game for the 1st time figure that out? Not to mention your party isn't even level 10, and Axios doesn't have a lot of MP. Overkill does restore all of it, but again, the new players? If that doesn't tip you off, it has way too powerful attacks for that point of the game...
