In Greek Mythology Titans were a race of powerful deities who were overthrown by the Olympian gods when they came to power. In Disney's Hercules, the Titans are very inaccurately portrayed as four elemental monsters who terrorized Ancient Greece. They were the physical manifestation of the element they controlled. These "Titans" were original creations for the film. Hercules: The Animated Series, which expands on the Greek Mythological setting and addresses many of the movie's inaccuracies and omissions, featured Titan characters from actual Greek Mythology.
The Muses tell the legend of the Titans through their song The Gospel Truth. The Titans where the rulers of the world when it was first new and they caused mayhem and destruction wherever they went. In the animated series it was also explained that they were led by their king Cronus. Then along came Zeus who used all his power to unleash a mighty thunderbolt that would imprison them beneath the seas of Tartarus where they would remain until the next planetary alignment.
List of TitansEdit

- Hydros - The Ice Titan: A skeletal giant made entirely out of ice. He teamed up with Pyros, the Lava Titan, to engulf Zeus in the Earth. He is the physical manifestation of water and ice. He frozen up Hades instead of Hercules and Pegasus, especially if he is with Lythos and Pyros.
- Pyros - The Lava Titan: A blob-like giant made entirely out of lava. He teamed up with Hydros, the Ice Titan, to engulf Zeus in the Earth. He is the physical manifestation of fire and lava. He melted up Hades instead of Hercules and Pegasus, especially if he is with Lythos and Hydros.
