The following are fictional characters from Disney's 1997 film Hercules and from the derived TV series. These productions are adaptations of Greek mythology, very different from the classical versions.

Hercules is the title character of the franchise. He is based on the mythological Heracles, most known under the Roman spelling Hercules. In the original movie, Josh Keaton voiced Hercules as a teenager, while Tate Donovan was the hero as an adult, and Roger Bart was Hercules' singing voice in the song "Go the Distance". His appearance is a handsome young man, with orange hair, eyebrows and wide blue eyes. Hercules is represented an overgrown gangly youth who doesn't know his own strength goes about inadvertently destroying things or humiliating himself. As a gawky and awkward teenager wearing a one-sleeved Greek tunic, Hercules is depicted as tall and thin, with broad, but stooped shoulders, extraordinarily long arms and legs, huge hands and pigeon-toed feet, a long skinny neck, and oversized ears. After completing his hero training, Hercules physical changes to being top-heavy and muscular, having larger biceps and pectorals and thickened neck, as well as a stance that changes from stooped and pigeon-toed to upright, with the chest puffed out and his feet now nicely turned out. However, even as an adult, Hercules still retains some of his teenage flaws, such as being shy, awkward, timid, and his clumsiness. As a hero, Hercules wears a brown-orange brass Cuirass-like tank armor tunic with a blue cape.

In the original movie, instead of the demigod hero son of Zeus and the mortal Alcmene, Hercules was actually born on Mount Olympus with all the powers of a god, and his parents were Zeus and Hera, the latter of whom has been re-imagined as a loving mother instead of a spiteful stepmother. However, one god is upset about the new arrival: Hercules' evil uncle , who wants to take control of Olympus and the world along with all of creation. Knowing that as a god, Hercules is immortal and invulnerable, Hades sends his two lackeys, , to kidnap Hercules and turn him mortal by means of a magic potion. However, the arrival of two mortals, Amphitryon and Alcmene, causes Hercules to miss the final drop of the potion, causing him to retain his godly strength. The couple then adopts the child, considering his arrival a gift from the gods since they are themselves childless. Zeus and the other gods discover the kidnapping too late, and because Hercules is now mortal, he cannot return to Mount Olympus.

Growing up into a teenager, Hercules has difficulty being accepted by others, due to being a geek as well as his clumsiness and not being able to control his own strength which leads to him accidentally destroying a marketplace. Shortly after, Hercules is told about his adoption by Amphitryon and Alcmene. This inspires Hercules to visit the temple of Zeus, where he learns his godhood. Zeus tells Hercules that he must become a true hero, instructing him to find the trainer of heroes (or "Phil"), while giving him the winged horse to assist in transportation. Phil at first declines returning to the hero training business, but is convinced by Zeus. Having reached adulthood and passed his training, Hercules sets off with Phil to become a hero in Thebes. On his way, Hercules saves from Nessus, a centaur acting as river guardian. Unbeknownst to them, Meg is working for Hades (albeit unwillingly), and relates the events to the Lord of the Underworld, by which he learns that Hercules is still alive. After freeing two boys (Pain and Panic in disguise) from under a boulder, Hercules unintentionally releases the Hydra, a giant serpent-like creature, an unintended consequence of a seemingly virtuous act which has been set up as a fixed contest by Hades to kill the young hero. Phil ran for cover while Hercules scrambles to defeat the Hydra, bravely fighting with just his sword and his wits. Although the beast initially swallows him whole, Hercules cuts his way out by decapitation. Standing next to the Hydra's headless steaming carcass, Hercules thought he did great, only for more heads to grow back and gang up to attack him. Finally, Hercules defeated the multi-headed monster by a rockslide. Having accomplished the unsavory yet heroic task of defeating the Hydra, Hercules earns newfound fame and adoration from the citizens of Thebes as well as the anger of Hades. By this time, Hercules has disposed a variety of other monsters sent by Hades and the hero becomes the toast of Greece. Meeting with Zeus, Hercules believes himself ready to rejoin the gods but is greatly upset when his father tells him that his celebrity status is not enough to regain his immortality, as being famous isn't the same as being a "true hero", and to "look inside his heart". Meg convinces him to play hookie, going on a date. At first, she was trying to learn any weakness he might have, but she eventually fell as hard for him as he had for her. The date is ended by Phil, irate at Hercules for skipping training. Phil is knocked off Pegasus, and wakes up in time to learn of Meg's involvement with Hades. He leaves to tell Hercules, not hearing Meg's refusal to help destroy Hercules. Hercules, ecstatic from the date, refuses to believe Phil's warning about Megara, even hitting him in a flash of blind anger, prompting Phil to quit.
