He was best known for being the strongest of all mortals, and many gods. He was the deciding factor of the victory of the Olympians and the Giants. He was also the last son of Zeus.
Stop aurguing I am stronger than you and you know it!
I am stronger than you but you are just deniying it!
He was also the only man born from mortal woman to become a god. Beside his strength he had a noticeable lack of intelligence and wisdom. One day it was really hot, so Hercules took out his bow and arrow and threatened to shoot at the sun. This connected with his emotions, and with his power it often got him in trouble.
Do you want to sit down, have a drink and some food?
Sure, that sounds lovely.
While Hercules’ cousin and friend Theseus was ruling Athens, Hercules was having a lot of trouble ruling himself. His pride was not that strong, so it was easily offended.
Here, let me help you up.
Yes, thank you.
The Romans than valued him highly as the best fit for they're idea as a hero. Than he eventually had a group that worshiped him as a god.
He took grudges very easily and never forgot them. Shockingly most of his great deeds happened while doing his self-punishment for the unreasonable things he did in anger and carelessness.
His feelings for woman, wine, and food were as big as his strength.
He may have grudges, but he would do anything to help a friend. After his anger passed, he was the most critical judge of his actions. He was so strong that nobody would force punishment on him. During his punishments he showed patience, fortitude, and endurance that were almost as heroic as his strength.
