GAH! Numbers please!! And where's Narcissus? "I haven't seen so much love in a room since Narcissus discovered himself." One of my favorite lines from the movie. Interesting quiz, though!
Jun 24th, 2011 at 00:11 GMT
Thought it was pretty obvious which numbers applied where, but I'll add numbers in to be on the safe side. Narcissus wasn't a god though!
Jun 24th, 2011 at 00:42 GMT
. I did way better at this one than I will on Wallace & Gromit. One thing though...Bacchus is indeed the Roman appellation for said god--it would good to accept Dionysus and display whichever you prefer.
Jun 24th, 2011 at 00:44 GMT
Thanks; the numbers help a lot! That's strange that Narcissus isn't a god, yet is portrayed as one (hanging out in the cloud kingdom and all) in Hercules. Just goes to show you shouldn't be trying to learn facts from Disney movies!!!
Jun 24th, 2011 at 02:18 GMT
It also shows Hephaestus in the movie. Perhaps add him too?
Jun 27th, 2011 at 11:45 GMT
@BamaMuaddib: I never noticed that, because on the cartoon he is referred to as Bacchus, despite, as you rightly stated, the Greek name is Dionysus. It has been allowed now anyway, apologies for the oversight. And it turns out you did better on Wallace and Gromit!
@WredAguyW: I'd add more gods (that's a good suggestion you've made) but I like the 15 picture format, and use it in several quizzes.
Aug 30th, 2011 at 11:03 GMT
love this quiz! i studied greek and roman mythology for two years and yet i only got 7 of the answers... wow. but i love this quiz! really great job!
Sep 4th, 2011 at 21:10 GMT
Nice quiz. And I have to hand it to Disney on their design choices; I haven't seen the movie or the TV series, but I was able to identify 11 out of 15 due to the way they were portrayed.
Sep 5th, 2011 at 03:57 GMT
Wait, Cupid's a Greek god?!
Sep 5th, 2011 at 04:50 GMT
Huh. #10 looks nothing like Laurence Fishburne...
Sep 6th, 2011 at 06:46 GMT
Cupid is Roman- His Greek counterpart is Eros. Same for Bacchus-That's the roman name of the Greek god Dionysus
Sep 9th, 2011 at 14:43 GMT
@emanuel: Both are already accepted. I've gone by what they are referred to in the cartoons, despite that fact that it's not quite correct. Who'd have thought Disney could be inaccurate?
Sep 15th, 2011 at 18:44 GMT
Awesome quiz :D Although I would rather see Hephaestus on here than Morpheus or Boreas, considering he's an Olympian and all.
Nov 29th, 2011 at 02:37 GMT
@maaxwell, emanuel, and BamaMuaddib: TECHNICALLY, Bacchus was the name adopted by the Romans, but the name Bacchus already existed in Greek. Dionysus went by both in Greece, but really only Bacchus in Rome. With that having been said, however, given the rest of that movie, I'd say Disney had no idea what they were doing.
Jan 11th, 2012 at 22:44 GMT
Great quiz, after reading above comments I'm glad you stayed with the 15 picture format, it fits nicely. Disney's portrail of Poseidon is awesome!
Jan 26th, 2012 at 22:05 GMT
Cupid is the Roman God. You're looking for Eros. Ironically enough, the movie is set in Greece, but Hercules is the Roman way of pronouncing it.
Oct 19th, 2012 at 14:30 GMT
I haven't even seen the movie, and I only missed five. Two of which were Roman names, Bacchus and Cupid. I think Hercules himself should be on here since he became a god after dying. At least a bonus answer.
Nov 14th, 2012 at 00:04 GMT
Got stuck on Cupid, Morpheus and Boreas but I never watched the TV show and you don't really see that much of most of them in the film. So was just guessing based on how they look haha!
Jan 27th, 2013 at 23:21 GMT
@Dannibelle AND @BR8N03epsilon: Please, read the comments above before commenting yourself. You will realise I've used the names used in the show/film, regardless of whether they are the actual Greek names or not.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 12:34 GMT
Hercules is the stupidest movie ever! Disney paid no attention to Greek mythology to make that! 1. Philocetes is the person who inherited Heracles's bow, not some silly satyr! 2. Hades isn't evil! 3. Heracles's parents are Zeus and ALCMENE! 4. He killed Megara! 5. Heracles did become a god! 6. Bacchus and Cupid are Roman gods!
Feb 10th, 2013 at 15:55 GMT
And may I remind you lythos, cyclops, hydros, stratos, and pyros aren't titans, and narcissus is a mortal! And also Pegasus was not made from a cloud!

Yikes, Bacchus needs to lay off the donuts, wine, and and partyin' for a little bit. Hit the gym.

Is it bad I didn't know any of these besides hera, hermes and zeus from the movie? Do they say any other names or were they just assumed for most people and I'm just retarded?
Mar 17th, 2013 at 04:54 GMT
Disney was so wrong about the name of the movie, all of the characters except Hercules are Greek. Hercules was Roman, Heracles (Herakles) was Greek.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 05:27 GMT
I'm surprised how many I was able to guess just from my knowledge of Greek and Roman mythology and Disney's crude caricatures.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 05:38 GMT
Don't downvote, because this is an honest question, but did they actually say the names "Bacchus" and "Cupid" in the movie? Because those are the Roman names. I mean so is "Hercules," but still...
Mar 17th, 2013 at 05:43 GMT
Couldn't get Hera until I remembered she wasn't the villain of the Disney version. And I think I speak for everyone when I ask "Who the heck was Boreas?"

This is quite hard if you don't watch cartoons.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 05:57 GMT
@Spacemaniac The Roman name for Dionysus is Bacchus. Boreas is the god of the North Wind.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 05:58 GMT
I said "Boreas", not "Bacchus". Looked it up and he was the god of the north wind. Don't remember that being in the movie, but then it's been quite a few years.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 06:07 GMT
@Absentia That's just what I said.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 06:08 GMT
@JBNelson Maybe, since Hera, Hermes and Zeus should be capitalized.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 07:59 GMT
I knew that was a wind god. Why did I stop guessing after it wasn't Zephyrus?
Mar 17th, 2013 at 08:21 GMT
Meanwhile, Hestia's sitting somewhere off camera, wondering whose toes she stepped on.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 11:33 GMT
I entered planet names assuming they would work. And what do you know. They do.

Bacchus is the Roman form of Dionysus, Hercules is Greek gods.
Mar 17th, 2013 at 14:29 GMT
thank you Percy Jackson
Mar 17th, 2013 at 14:59 GMT
Thanks, Disney, for ruining Greek and Roman mythology by mixing the two in the movie. You know, the same way you screwed up Pocahontas.

Bacchus is the Roman form of Dionysus.
