A Man-Eating Mare

The Man-Eating Mares are a species of wild, carnivorous horses that once belonged to the King of Thrace.

Role in the Series

Hercules was sent to defeat a mare by Phil. However, he became too discouraged to fight, due to the constant depressing and worrisome rambles of the imp Neurosis. It is later discovered that the imp was sent by Hades in order to destroy Hercules' will to fight.


  • In Once Upon a Time, the Man-Eating Mares appear; one of Hercules' twelve medals is a representation of the monsters.
  • In the original myth, defeating the man-eating Mares was Hercules' eighth labor.
