Queen Hippolyte is the monarch leader to the Amazons, a tribe of all-female exclusive warriors, famous in Greece. She is only mentioned into the movie Hercules, but appears in the animated TV series in the episode "Hercules and the Girdle of Hippolyte". She is voiced by Jane Curtin.
While training with Phil, Hercules learns that during a Damsel-in-Distress training he was rescuing a guy doll. Phil tells him that heroes shouldn't save men they only save damsels. Meanwhile after Queen Hippolyte believes that her daughter, Tempest is going soft and weak, she kidnaps her, and makes her undergo a savage initiation ceremony to regain her status as an Amazonian warrior and to earn the right to wear the Golden Girdle. Hercules follows in a misguided rescue attempt only to learn she's just fine.
Queen Hippolyte doesn't appear in Once Upon a Time. However, she was represented into one of Hercules' twelve medals.
- In the original myth, Queen Hippolyte was Ares' daughter and Hercules' ninth labor.
