-----
!!''De Argonautjes'' contains examples of:
*ActualPacifist: Hercules. He may be the strongest member of the team, but he is absolutely against fighting or violence in general, sensitive, not above crying, and an ExtremeDoormat. Untill [[BewareTheNiceOnes you push]] his BerserkButton….
*AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Castor and Pollux are identical twins.
*ArcherArchetype: Atalanta has a bow and arrow as her WeaponOfChoice. Too bad she is never able to actually hit her intended target.
*BerserkButton: DO. NOT. INSULT. HERCULES’. PET CAT! Really, don’t. It could very well be the last thing you ever do.
*TheBigGuy: Hercules. Too bad he’s such a pacifist most of the time.
*HypercompetentSidekick: Idas, pretty much the only competent member of the team.
*IdenticalGrandson: Pretty much all the main characters. They even have the same names as their more famous parents.
*KindheartedCatLover: Hercules, the biggest pacifist on the team, has a pet cat named Odipoes, who he loves dearly. Insulting his cat is a surefire way to get him mad.
* KleptomaniacHero: Hermes, who never seizes an opportunity to steal something valuable, even if it endangers the mission the team is on.
*ALoadOfBull: The heroes encounter the Minotaur in the story “The labyrinth”.
* MilesGloriosus: Jason. He always presents himself as a hero, but when faced with actual danger he is usually the first one to turn and run (if he doesn’t faint before he gets the chance).
*MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Hercules frequently has this reaction when he calms down again after somebody pushed his BerserkButton, and realizes how much damage he caused and people he hurt while angry.
*PintsizedPowerhouse: Castor and Pollux are only half the size of most adult characters, but they more than make up for it by being champions in boxing and wrestling respectively. Thus, they can still easily take down larger opponents.
*TheSmurfettePrinciple: Atalanta is the only female member of the heroes.
*SuperStrength: Hercules naturally has this as his defining trait.
*TokenEvilTeammate: Hermes, who is officially part of the team, but still very much a thief.
