Olympian Gods

The Olympian Gods are the rulers of the world of Ancient Greece in Hercules. They are divine immortals who control the forces of nature. They are related to the older Titans, their ancestors and chief enemies. There are now twelve major deities who rule over the country, the Olympians, all of whom are under the absolute rule of Zeus, god of the sky. They reside high above on Mount Olympus where they discuss affairs related to the mortal world or matters regarding monsters or disorders in nature.

Physical AppearanceEdit

The Olympian gods and goddesses are human in appearance with above average height and an aura of divinity emitting from their body; also, they possess a wide range of skin and hair color.

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

The Olympians Gods and Goddesses are very powerful beings that possess abilities such as: near omnipotence, immortality, superhuman strength, shape-shifting, teleportation, and omnipresence. The Deities also possess energy based abilities, such as magic abilities and energy projection. They are basically omnipotence, being capable of life-giving to objects or giving supernatural powers to who don't possess it with ease. However, unlike in myth, their superhuman physical capabilities seems much restricted (possibly).

Some deities will have abilities related to their specific domain. Poseidon has control over water, and Apollo having control over the sun.

Weakness: Magic can harm them; also, they can't break through magic chains.


  • In original Greek mythology, most, if not all the Olympian gods and goddesses, were related in one form or another, such as Athena and Ares being children of Zeus, and husband and wife Zeus and Hera actually being brother and sister. With the exception of recognizing Ares and Athena being brother and sister, and Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades being brothers, these blood relations are seemingly disregarded in the Disney interpretations. The gods and goddesses' penchant for infidelity, another recurring motif in Olympian mythology, is also disregarded for obvious reasons.
  • A lot of the gods and goddesses are portrayed as being much more benevolent in the movie than in the original myths, especially Hera and Zeus. Conversely, Hades is portrayed as being more malevolent than in the myths.
