Story[edit | edit source]
Kingdom Hearts III[edit | edit source]
Eighteen years ago, the Fates looked into the future and predicted Hades would succeed in taking over the cosmos and dethroning Zeus. Hoping to fulfill his fate, Hades has released the Titans and started his war against the Gods, raining destruction over all of Olympus.
In their search for Olympus Coliseum, Sora, Donald, and Goofy have gotten lost in Olympus. Pausing at a mountain edge, Sora decides to shout for Hercules, but instead he catches the attention of Hades, who makes an unwelcome appearance. At first Hades is irate at the trio's mentions of Hercules, but he quickly calms himself and reveals that he is once again planning to conquer the cosmos. The trio are far from enthusiastic to see their old foe again and Sora openly dismisses Hades' aspirations. At this Hades calls upon the Titans, and suddenly Sora, Donald, and Goofy find themselves assaulted by earthquakes, icy cold, lava from the Lava Titan, and, finally, a veracious wind that sweeps them clean off the mountain and throws them off into the distance. Pleased with his display of power, Hades watches the trio disappear and then thanks the Titans, who leave.
Later, at the top of Olympus' Realm of the Gods, Hades has completed his conquest. The Ice Titan and Lava Titan have trapped Zeus in a rock prison and Hades sits back, pleased to finally be in charge. His victory is short-lived, however, as Hercules (atop Pegasus), Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive. Although a valiant fight ensues, all three Titans remain standing. Things only get worse when the Rock Titan suddenly joins the battle. To assuage his doubts, Sora confidently reminds Goofy that there's four of them to take the four of the Titans, prompting Hercules to note that he can make it five. Hercules then jumps onto the rock cone imprisoning Zeus and breaks it apart, setting his father free. Zeus quickly gets to work, pelting the Titans with lightning bolts. The Titans attempt to flee, but Hercules captures the Tornado Titan and uses it to gather the other three Titans together. He flings the monsters far out into space, effectively destroying them.
