Icarus is a character from the Disney animated series Hercules. He was Hercules' best friend during their time in Prometheus Academy. He also has a romantic obsession with his friend Cassandra. He was voiced by French Stewart.


Having tried flying too close to the sun fried his brain, leaving him batty but lovable. Despite being a gentle kid, Icarus is easy to anger and driven to great acts of spite when especially provoked particularly when consumed by jealousy. When jealous of his father, Daedalus, whom he usually refers to as 'Dad-alus', getting remarried as he was concerned his new spouse would divert his father's attention away from him, he stole Pandora's Box and set the viruses to attack the wedding. Then jealous of Cassandra's new boyfriend Melampus (who resembled him), he snuck into Cupid's cherub-arrow making factory and made a hate arrow. He sung while doing so.

Role in the series

In the clip-show episode "Hercules and the Yearbook", Phil tells that after graduation, Icarus went into manufacturing with his father, Daedelus, and became very wealthy, earning the name "Icarus: The Wax-Wing King". In "Hercules and the Arabian Night", he gets kidnapped by Jafar and teams up with Abu to stop him and Hades. Icarus then wants a monkey after he waves goodbye to Abu.
