This article is about the character from a segment of Fantasia, for the more benevolent god from the 1997 film Hercules, see Zeus.

Zeus is a character in the "Pastoral Symphony" segment of the 1940 film Fantasia. He has a slightly different appearance in this and interrupts Bacchus' party with the centaurs, centaurettes, cherubs, and Pegasus, throwing lightning bolts for his personal entertainment, a portrayal closer to his mythological counterpart.

Background

Personality

A more accurate depiction of his mythological counterpart rather than the incarnation seen in Hercules, Zeus is more of a mischief maker who doesn't really think of how his actions affect beings below and is more focused on creating amusement for himself with his storms.

Physical appearance

Zeus is a giant god with a blue robe, white beard, and blue eyes.

Role in the film

Zeus interrupts Bacchus' party and creates from a storm with just a few drops of rain to a powerful thunderstorm with thunder, lightning, strong winds, heavy rain, and comets, working with Vulcan on sending down thunderbolts as well as creating terrible winds to drive the storm. Eventually, he grows bored with the mayhem and decides to cease his activity to rest, causing the storm to subside.

Game appearances

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance

Zeus does not physically appear in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, though Mount Olympus appears and Zeus will throw lightning bolts at the enemies and also Sora and his allies.
