Top 10 Moments from Hercules (1997)
The Top Ten
Wow, the sheer amount of effort that each of these lists takes is nothing short of breathtaking, truly the pinnacle of quality on the website that happens to be just as high quality
After the battle with the Hydra Hercules is celebrated as a hero as the Muses sing "Zero to Hero" as a montage of Hercules defeating Hades other monsters as well all the fame and fortune.
An epic battle as Hercules fights off the Hydra who continues growing more heads after Hercules repeatedly cuts off its heads until there's an army of them as Hercules is left in a really bad spot but just as it seems curtains for him he is able to smash against the cliff side causing an avalanche as it buries the monster killing it in the process as Hercules breaks free from its clutches as he is celebrated as a hero by the towns people much to Hades displeasure.
Very underappreciated song.
My favorite Hades moment furious with his inability to kill off Hercules when he notices that Pain is wearing Hercules brand sandals as Hades becomes more and more angry as he yells out "I have 24 hours to get rid of this bozo or the entire scheme I've been setting up for 18 years goes up in smoke, AND YOU ARE WEARING HIS MERCHANDISE! " then stops and sees Panic drinking out of a Hercules drink up chuckles nervously and says "thirty" as Hades literally explodes.
After realizing Hercules one major weakness his love for Megara Hades uses her to trick Hercules into giving up his god like strength so he and the Titans can take over Mount Olympus after the deed is done Hades reveals that Meg had been working for him all along.
Meg pushes Hercules out of the way of a falling column that ends up crushing her as Hercules regains his god like strength thanks to the deal with Hades stating if anything happened to Meg he would get his strength back.
To save Meg's soul Hercules jumps into the river of Styx in the underworld as he attempts to save her before he succumbs to death.
Hercules meets up with Phil who is reluctant to train Hercules as a hero but after some persuasion by Zeus Phil agrees though it starts off rough eventually Hercules is able to rise up and be the hero he was meant to be.
Hercules first test as he goes attmpts to save Meg from Nessus the Centaur though things don't go as smoothly but eventually Hercules is able to conquer the centaur though Meg isn't too impressed.
