Hercules and the Big Games is an episode of Hercules: The Animated Series. It aired on November 4, 1998.


Hades, tired of no new souls coming in, makes a deal with Ares to start a war between Sparta and Athens; however, the war is called off as the Big Games are taking place in Athens, and Hercules is on the Athenian team, so Zeus makes a decree to have no interference. At a loss, Hades visits Echidna and has her gather her entire family to attack Athens. Meanwhile, Hercules is winning every event and enjoying being a hero (or sports hero, as Phil calls it) – until Ares remembers, in a manner similar to anti-doping, that he is a demigod, and only mortals can compete; hence, half his points are taken off. But when Echidna and her family arrive, he puts aside popularity to save the day, with an assist from Ares and Athena, who are working together for once.
