Appearances and Mentions on Young Hercules Edit
1.13 - Forgery Edit
- Hephaestus mentions that Poseidon wants him to make another anchor. "You'd think he'd had enough of those already."
- Cheiron is naming the statues, and indicates one that is holding a trident as, "Neptune, God of the Sea".
- Neptune was the name that ancient Romans gave to the Greek god of the sea and earthquakes, Poseidon.
- Hercules tells Mila, "Well, Y-you could be the daughter of, like, you know, Poseidon, or Apollo, or..." "...or Zeus!" Mila chimes in.
- When Mila confronts Hercules, she asks, "What if my father turned out to be some god other than Zeus? Someone like, say, Hades or Poseidon... or even Ares?"
- Vendor Christine tries to sell a fishing pole. "You'll steal a fish from Poseidon's plate."
Poseidon is one of the more vengeful gods, as proven when Cecrops selected Athena over Poseidon as the patron god of Athens. Poseidon, rather than accepting the judgment, cursed Cecrops to roam the seas for eternity; Athena countered by blessing Cecrops with immortality so that he could find a way out (which he eventually did) (XWP "Lost Mariner").
Poseidon also cursed Ulysses while the hero was on his voyage home from the Trojan War. Ulysses was aided by Xena and Gabrielle (just like Cecrops) and eventually prevailed against the sea god (XWP " Ulysses").
He is the father of Triton, Antaeus, as well as Polyphemus (in the myths he was the father of many others, but none were ever featured). He is technically the first god to appear on Xena: Warrior Princess, as he appears briefly in the opening sequence in the first 5 seasons when the narrator mentions "ancient gods".
Unlike most of the other Olympians, Poseidon rarely appears in conventional human form, appearing instead as a gigantic man-shaped construct of water, wearing a crown and bearing his trident. It is unknown if this is his true appearance; it is likely just an alternate form (like the Ares Monster) that he uses for intimidation.
As an Olympian god, Poseidon possess immortality and a broad range of magical abilities. As the God of the sea Poseidon possesses complete control over the oceans and all who inhabit it. It is possible to get the better of Poseidon, but this is rare without some assistance from other gods.
