Quote "We are the Muses! Goddesses of the arts and proclaimers of heroes!"

"that's the gospel truth"


The Muses are presented in Hercules as the five lovely Goddesses whose domain lies in the arts, and they sing the tales of ancient Greece in a 'gospel choir' style. They claim to be Hercules' biggest fans, narrating the movie and singing in four of the six songs.

Calliope is the muse of epic poetry. She leads the muses and is the tallest of the five with high hair.

Clio is the muse of history. She has a small ponytail and carries a scroll. 

Thalia is the muse of comedy. She is the shortest of the five, and very round in shape. 

Terpsichore is the muse of dance. She is the second-shortest of the five, with frizzy hair. She is the only muse that has ever come in contact with Hercules teaching him how to dance in Hercules and the Muse of Dance.

Melpomene is the muse of tragedy. She has long, curly hair to her waist. She is voiced by Cheryl Freeman.

More InfoEdit

They first appear when they find the original narrator's way of telling the story of Hercules as being too depressing. They sing "The Gospel Truth I", telling the tale of how Zeus defeated the Titans, and then of Hades' plot to take over Mount Olympus, and of Hercules being unable to return to Olympus.

They then sing "Zero to Hero", narrating Hercules' victories over many monsters and his rise to fame.

Soon after, they manifest in statues, busts and engravings to sing backup with Megara to the song "(I Won't Say) I'm In Love", during which Meg denies and finally accepts her love for Hercules.

Finally they appear in the finale, singing the song "A star is Born", in which Hercules is a hero, and everybody gets their happy ending.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

As goddesses, the muses possess the natural powers and abilities of an Olympian Gods such as immortality, omnipresence, vast strength, and the potential to do Magic, such as the ability to shape-shift, teleport, and to manifest as objects. As the goddesses of the Arts, they possess the natural ability to charm and entrance those who hear their hypnotically beautiful and soft melodious vocalizing melodies and songs.

On Sora's TeamEdit

The Muses assist the team when they're on missions, and sing about some of their adventures.
