  • Trivia

    • Archie reads and writes classical poetry.

    • If Herry is a descendant of Hercules, then technically he is also the descendant of Zeus. The same is with Odie. If Odysseus is his ancestor, he is also a descendant of Hermes.

    • When Hermes first rescues Herry and introduces himself, watch his caduceus. The copulating snakes that are traditionally wrapped around the staff appear and disappear briefly.

    • Jay's mother is Greek, and has taught him all about Greek mythology.

  • Quotes

    • Jay: Where are we? Looks bleak.

      Hermes: Canada.

    • Jay: They have to have made a mistake. I'm no hero. I mean, you know who you are! You're fast, (indicates Atlanta) and you're strong (indicates Herry) but I don't have anything special.

      Atlanta: I don't know about that. I mean, you saved me from those giants.

      Jay: Yeah, but that was...

      Atlanta: (interrupting softly) Instinct?

    • Cronus: Poor fellow... oh well.

    • Chiron: I have bad news---

      Hermes: (shoves past Chiron with difficulty and interrupts) Hey I'm the messenger, I'll deliver the message!

    • (Cronus spots Jay lurking nearby)
      Jay: (talking to himself) Come on Jay, it's only a couple of giants and an immortal god--- Uh, I don't think so, not today.

    • (After Hera tells Herry he is a descendant of Hercules)
      Herry: I'm related to you?

      Hercules: Just think of me as your great great great great great great great...uh...great great great great grandpa.

    • Hera: And you're Herry--- (Herry puts on an innocent "I didn't do anything" face after playing with the portal) and you're Atlanta.

    • Atlanta: Could you be any louder? Can't you see there's a... (turns around and notices giant behind her) giant monster behind me!?

    • Hermes: I'd climb on her back if I were you, you have a better chance of not being eaten that way.

      Jay: Eaten? Seriously?

      Hermes: Don't worry, she just didn't have her breakfast this morning. Isn't that right? You missed your brecky wecky.

    • Cronus: Mortals? That can't be right.

      Oracle: I'm always right, 4000 years and not a single mistake. Not bad, huh?

    • Cronus: There you are. You're looking well, Oracle.

      Oracle: Oh come now, I'm starting to look like a shaved cat.

    • Herry: It's three aginst one. I think we're good.

      Atlanta: Ya, I'm good with that.

    • Cronus: Fools believe in destiny, Jay. I was destined to spend eternity in Tartarus, and here I am.

      Jay: (to Cronus) You talk a lot, don'cha?

    • Herry: You think they'll get out of the way if I ask them nicely?

    • Jay: Where did Hermes go?

      Atlanta: I don't know. A toga party?

    • Hermes: (looks at Herry, who is clinging for dear life to a griffin) You can let go now, Herry. The ride's over.

    • Jay: Okay, let me get this straight - you're Hermes? The immortal messenger of the Greek gods of Olympus?

      Hermes: Ah yes, that's me. Why do I always get stereotyped? I'm also the god of trade, travel, luck, language ... the list goes on, but who remembers that? No one.

    • Herry: Wait a second. If we find the huge fire-breathing giant, what do we do?

      Atlanta: Yeah, we don't exactly have any weapons.

      Jay: We've got Herry. He's a weapon!

  • Notes

    • In this episode, the first three descendants are revealed. Jay, descendant of Jason, is revealed to enjoy gazing at the stars through his telescope, and he seems to be the only one that notices time goes back, even just a second.

      Herry is shown to be living on a farm, which seems to fit nicely with his character considering his love of food, which on a farm there is a large supply of freshly grown goods.

      Atlanta on the other hand is revealed to already be hunting, with two boys, presumably her brothers, or stepbrothers, generally in relation to her although exactly how I don't believe it has been confirmed.

    • This episode (along with the other Chaos episodes) were usually shown on Teletoon as Cinetoons or special presentations as a mini-movie. However, it was first shown as an individual episode on August 28th, 2006.

    • Chiron is supposed to be dead, having given-up his immortality when he couldn't stand the pain of one of Hercules's poisoned-tipped arrows. As he was immortal, he couldn't be killed by them like the other centaurs were.

    • This Episode was first aired on the 31st of December on teletoon.

  • Allusions

    • When he first escapes from Tartarus, we see that Cronus' weapons of choice are scythes. This is most likely an allusion to how in Greek mythology, Cronus overthrew his father, Uranus, by castrating him with a scythe given to him by his mother, Gaia.

    • The 'Chaos' part of the title has two meanings. The most obvious is a reference to our modern definition of the word, ie. a state of confusion. However, it is also an allusion to the ancient Greek mythological concept of 'Chaos', which was the empty void of the universe from which the world as we know it was created from and therefore had its beginnings in (like this show).

    • The name "Class of the Titans" is a reference to the 1980s movie "Clash of the Titans".
