The Muses are the secondary narrators of the film and act as the chorus. They often interrupt Bob, saying that he is making the story boring. Thalia sometimes calls Bob 'Bobby'.

They claim to be Hercules' biggest fans, and then singing "Zero to Hero", they describe his victories over many monsters and his rise to fame.

For the animated series, they sing the theme song.

  • Erato - The Muse of Love Poetry.

The Muses

The Muses got to sing the song "I Won't Say (I'm in Love)".

As goddesses of Arts and Proclaimer of Heroes and Zeus, their father and his wife Hera were the judges of the Music Contest, he invited the Olympian Gods and The Sirens, they were  jealous of the muses song because it was good and beautiful and The sirens sang the siren song but Hera the judge made the muses winners of the competition.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • Immortality - they can live forever and cannot be killed.
  • Object Manifestation - They can inhabit statues and images that depict them (bring said statues and/or image to life). The five often do this to begin or join in a song.

In Greek legend, the greatest power of the Muses was a kind of possession - when a poet or actor performed at their best, it was not them, but a muse speaking through them. Likewise, when they were encouraged it was due to the blessings of a Muse. However, this is never referenced in either the movie or series.


In the movie, they are presented as the five lovely Goddesses, they had some great asses, whose domain lies in the arts, and they sing the tales of ancient Greece in a "gospel choir" style.
