** [[DomesticAbuse Minthe severely and physically abusing Hades]] in episode 76 showcasing that DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale is definitely NOT PlayedForLaughs!

** [[DomesticAbuse Minthe severely and physically abusing Hades]] in episode 76 showcasing that DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale is definitely NOT PlayedForLaughs! and completely averts DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale. Doesn’t get any better in the next episode because Hades claims to still love her and blame himself for making her angry, despite clearly being shaken by Minthe’s abuse, [[TruthInTelevision which often happens to some real life abuse victims.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Even creepier when you learn that he's held in high esteem among most Olympians and that Zeus has outright said he doesn't want to do anything about it because that might reflect badly on Olympus in general, which is unfortunately [[TruthInTelevision the kind of thing that often happens in real life]] when influential or well liked people commit heinous acts. That raises the question; has Apollo done similar things to other girls? Have the other gods done similar things only for their transgressions to be covered up?


** Athens quickly got attention, due to her funny personality and her being okay around Hades, unlike the majority of deities. Her being an already loved goddess in Myth/ClassicalMythology also helped.

** Hestia’s first on-screen appearance is interrogating Persephone about the tabloid with Hades and slut-shames for simply being with him. Then to rub salt into her wound, she confiscates the fur coat that he gave her.

* SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome:
** Persephone wakes up in a strange home, not realizing she’s in the underworld, when all of a sudden, [[HellHound Cerberus]] himself appears before her and is about to devour her. Rather than run away in fear, she stands her ground long enough for Hades to try to calm him down. But Kore tells him that she’s got this and almost immediately [[FluffyTamer tames the ginormous guard dog of the underworld]] and cuddles him so much, Cerberus turns into a regular sized dog and becomes devoted to the young spring goddess.
** Eros saving Psyche from her wedding to a cruel man AND from her abusive family. That and telling off her mother.
** Hebe calling out to her mother Hera for taking her anger with Zeus undeservedly onto Hades, forcing Hera to wonder if [[WiseBeyondTheirYears her 8 year daughter has more emotional intelligence than she does.]] THIS is what ultimately pushes her into driving Hades and Persephone together.
** After being stalked and more or less kidnapped by Apollo, where he wants to [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil “practice” more on what he’s done to her a few nights ago,]] Persephone tells him off for all the damages he has done to her. When Apollo refuses to get the message, Kore demands to be let out of his car, [[HeroicDog with a little help from Cerberus,]] she manages to escape and scares Apollo away thanks to Cerberus.
** Hades BigDamnHeroes moment when he saves Persephone from getting trapped and tortured in Tartarus.
** After Hermes gets dragged out by Artemis from being in the same room with Persephone while she’s undressing, and reminds Kore of her “No Men Allowed Rule” in their home, only to get pointed that [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter she always allows Apollo over because she’s her brother and fails to see what a creep he is despite Artemis’s rule from above]].
** When Hera confides in Zeus that she thinks that Apollo may have raped Persephone, he immediately takes his side, not wanting to taint Apollo’s reputation over some “B-Grade Goddess”. Hera’s response? [[SpitefulSpit To spit at her husband,]] [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu the King of the Olympus]].
** [[BigDamnHeroes Hecate stopping Minthe’s abuse on Hades and]] [[TakeThatScrappy suspends her until further notice.]] That is all.
** When Hades drives Persephone home, Apollo is there waiting and tries to confront her on ignoring his calls, Hades then gets out of his car and tells him off for bothering Persephone. Then she tells him off saying that yes, Hades is right and she doesn’t want to see him. When Apollo refuses to leave, Hades calls in Poseidon on speed dial who then immediately drags Apollo away to go [[CoolandUnusualPunishment prowling for women against his will.]] When all is said and done, Kore then reveals she stole Apollo’s lyre and plans to destroy it, [[RapeAndRevenge declaring war for what’s he’s done to her.]]
** Ares’ BigEntrance. Nuff’ said.


** The scene where Ares invents Persephone's personal space was seen as annoying from his part.


** Ares managed to gather some fans who were interested in him [[spoiler: and his relationship with Persephone]], but also a great amount of haters for harassing Kore


* SpiritualSuccessor: To Disney/Hercules. While obviously this story has no Hercules or Meg and Hades is the hero in this, it does have the "Greek mythology-contemporary times" angle and uses AmazingTechnicolorPopulation to stylish effect.

** Artemis is starting to lean towards this path, as she has a lot of fans for her ActionGirl status, but some haters for [[HorribleJudgeofCharacter her hatred towards the kind-hearted Hades, believing he is a pervert like his brothers, but has a HUGE blindspot to her twin brother Apollo,]] [[NightmareFuel who secretly raped]] her best friend and roommate in her sleep. [[KicktheDog She also told Eros as he is crying about his love story that it was a load of bullshit.]]

** While with good intentions, Eros’ crashing Psyche’s wedding to a cruel man is full-blown terrifying. It’s nighttime and the torches are blown away from a wind coming from nowhere, Psyche is hypnotized and carried away by Eros, who has turned into a whole other being that isn’t the same fun-loving god of love, but a terrifying monster. “ugliest creature you ever met”, indeed.

** Episode 25 starts of with a glimpse of Hades’ childhood. [[HopeSpot He’s having a rather happy 6th birthday with his beloved mother, Rhea,]] when all of a sudden, Cronus calls out to Rhea, looking for Hades and she quickly tells him to hide from his father. She tries to seduce him from looking for their son, repulsed as she is of her husband, but he’s aware of what a terrible liar she is and finds Hades almost immediately and swallows him hole. [[AdultFear As Hades is crying for his mother to not get eaten by his dad, Rhea can only look on in horror.]] It’s no wonder Hades still gets nightmares about it to this day.

** Apollo started off as a JerkJock at worst, but [[RapeIsaSpecialKindOfEvil raping Persephone in her sleep, taking photos against her will,]] [[StalkerWithaCrush and stalking the very girl he forced himself]] without a shred of remorse made him the embodiment of this trope.


** Hebe calling out to her mother Hera on her grudge on Zeus, that Hades is innocent in all of this and has no right to drag him into her terrible marriage.
