Corrected entry: Hades places the eyeball in the Fates' left hand, but a second later she releases it from her right hand.
Corrected entry: When Hercules is at Phil's house he hits his head on a mast and Phil says "Careful, that is part of the Argo" and Herc says "the Argo?" This is not possible because the Argo is a ship Hercules travels on when he is an adult, he also dies on this ship and is burned/buried on the boat. So Hercules can not be a teenager when he sees the mast of the Argo because the boat was not even created yet.
Corrected entry: When Hermes is talking to Zeus and Hera at the beginning, he talks about Narcissus and Orpheus, who were both mortals and died in Greek mythology. (00:03:35)
Corrected entry: Hercules is fighting the hydra, which had one head to begin with, but gains three more every time Hercules chops off one of them. Hercules chops off one of its heads six times, meaning the hydra should end up with just thirteen heads in the end, but when Hercules sees it with all of its heads, it has more than that.
Corrected entry: When the Titans are marching off to Mt. Olympus, you can tell the tornado one is the last one in line. Moments later, the cyclops appears behind him.
Corrected entry: That river of souls thing was made up entirely for this movie. There were five rivers in Hades but the dead were either in Tartarus or the Elysian Fields or the Asphodel Fields depending on if they were good or bad or if they had been judged yet. (There is one more area, the Isles of the Blessed, where the really good guys go who have been reincarnated three times...and of course the Plain of Judgement where they were judged).
Corrected entry: When Hephaestus is shown making lightning bolts for Zeus, he is standing straight and tall. According to Greek mythology, though, Hephaestus was a cripple.
Corrected entry: In Disney's Hercules 1997 movie the facts are wrong. It portrays Hera as loving Hercules. One problem with that. Hera never gave birth to Hercules. Alcemene did. Hera disliked Hercules intensely and caused him to have to do the 12 labors. I understand it was a kid's movie, but they could have gotten it factual partially.
Corrected entry: When one of the Fates throws her eyeball to her right, Hades catches it and throws it to his right where it is caught by Pain and Panic. In turn, they throw it to their right and it is caught by the Fates, but in the first shot, the Fates, Hades and Pain and Panic were standing in a line.
Corrected entry: When the painter is scribbling out the painting on the pot, in slow motion, he has three arms.
Corrected entry: When the Titans are shown in their prison, they all have two eyes. But when they are released by Hades, one of the Titans is a cyclops.
Corrected entry: In the beginning, Hades says Zeus bestowed the job of ruling the underworld upon him. This is incorrect. Zeus, Hades, and their brother drew lots to see who would rule what. (Zeus got the sky, their brother, Poseidon, got sea and Hades got stuck with the underworld. The earth was left for the goddesses.).
Corrected entry: Notice Hades normally has blue hair, but when he gets angry he gets the yellow and red flames? The problem is, a blue flame is hotter than a red or yellow flame, so therefore, he cools off when he gets angry.
Corrected entry: We see Hermes napping when the Titans march...no way that would ever happen. He was kept busy with escorting the dead the underworld or running errands for the gods.
Trivia: As already noted, Hercules wears a lionskin which is made out of Scar. In the myths of Hercules one of his great tasks was to kill a vicious lions and he kept the skin ever since. But it's more than just a joke or a cameo that he wears Scar, for both Scar and Hercules were animated by the same man (Andreas Deja).
