The 12 Labors are referenced several times in the movie. The Hydra is killed in the movie, and other Labors are shown or mentioned: A Stymphalian bird is shown. The Nemean Lion and its skin (which both resemble Scar from the Lion King) is also shown, as well as the Erymanthian Boar. Phil mentions Hercules having to "clean the Augean stables" and "steal the girdle of Hippolyte". The Minotaur and a gorgon are also seen. Also, near the end of the movie, Hercules bursts into Hades's palace riding Cerberus, which references the last labor.
