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).

Trivia: Greek mythology has a Philoctetes. He is however not a sartyr who trained heroes, he is a human who gets bitten by a snake en route to Troy. Because of the stench from the wound he is left behind and Odysseus returns to pick him up towards the end of the war.

Trivia: In ancient Greece the definition of a hero was actually someone who was half human, half god, so Hercules really is a true hero.

Question: Why is it too nutty that Orpheus arranged the flowers?

Chosen answer: Orpheus was the greatest poet and musician of Greek mythology, his music could charm wild beasts and even persuade rocks and trees into movement; the idea of him arranging flowers is probably just a pun on his normal pasttime of 'arranging' music, or alternatively a reference to how he could have used his magical music to make the flowers spontaneously arrange themselves.

Question: How did Hercules get into the Underworld?

Chosen answer: I always assumed one of the gods told him how to get there after they won the battle. The underworld in Greek mythology could be traveled to by mortals, albeit extremely ill-advised.
