- Tawny Kitaen, who played Deianeira, would go on to play her in all later Universal Action Pack movies and several HTLJ episodes.
- Lisa Chappell would later play multiple roles on HTLJ – Lydia ("Pride Comes Before a Brawl"); Dirce ("The King of Thieves", "The Wedding of Alcmene", "Hercules on Trial"); Melissa ("War Bride", "Hercules on Trial"); Melissa Blake ("Yes, Virginia, There is a Hercules", "For Those of You Just Joining Us").
- Hercules battling and defeating Antaeus comes from the Greek myths (though with some obvious tweaks such as Deianeira's presence).
- The movie begins with Hercules having a prophetic dream about later events of the story. This would not be the last time he would have a prophetic dream ("Norse By Norsevest", "Darkness Rising", "Revelations").
