YMMV: Hercules
Disney Movie

Animated Series
  • Base Breaker: Icarus. Some fans see him as a crazily awesome, hilarious and occasionally wise character. Others see him as childish and grating.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: In the episode about Prometheus, rather than dancing around the fact that his liver got eaten by an eagle every day, the writers went out of their way to make every possible reference to it. However, the scene where the eagle visibly pulls his liver out, and then they proceed to argue about the eagle seasoning it while he's eating it, takes the cake.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Icarus, Cassandra, Aphrodite...
  • Harsher in Hindsight: When you know what will someday happen to her, seeing Medusa befriend Hercules can be a bit heartbreaking.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Before she starred in Frozen, Idina Menzel made a guest appearance as Circe, a singing witch. Later, she would go on to play Elphaba, who just so happens to be a singing witch.
  • Relationship Sue: Played with; Hercules tried to make one out of clay. It failed; When it was time to create her personality, Aphrodite interpreted "Crazy about Hercules" as a Clingy Jealous Girl. It doesn't take her long before she invoke Ax-Crazy as well. When he tries to fix her personality by making her a "independent woman", she instantly put him in the friendzone. To make it worse his crafting skills were so bad, that Aphrodite had to parody the Sims just to make her look human.
    Aphrodite: Okay, beautiful AND crazy about you. Diggin' deep, huh?
