This is the first appearance of Adonis in the series.
Strontes and his brothers are ghosts because they were killed by Apollo as his vengeance for the death of his son Asclepius (god and forefather of medicine); actually, it was Zeus who killed Asclepius, because he was bringing death for life, but since Apollo couldn't fight his father at the moment, he decided to kill the smiths of the thunderbolts instead. Thus, the Cyclops ghosts have justification for working with Chronus against the Olympians - Zeus and Apollo started it first.
When Brontes denies any close kinship with Polyphemus and in fact looks down on him, he has justification: the three brothers and Polyphemus are of different Cyclops types, of which there were four kinds: 1) the Solar Cyclops - the Uranians, whose single eyes stood for the suns; 2) the Thunderbolt Cyclops, forgers of thunderbolts, to which Brontes and his brothers do belong; 3) the Many-Armed Cyclops (Heirogasters), who built various ancient towns and forts, and who were destroyed by Dionysus when he warred with Mycenae; and 4), the savage Cyclops of "Odyssey", to which Polyphemes belongs. The Cyclops of the fourth tribe are the least, farmers and goat-herders, and naturally that the greater-skilled Trio of Strontes and his brothers want nothing to do with the "savage" Polyphemus.
This is the first appearance of Morpheous, the god of dreams.
Autolycus, the Prince of Thieves, was a son of Hermes and grandfather of Odysseus
After Eris finished spray-painting the walls inside the bell tower, it shows the chosen ones in particular order like the series' opening credits.
The painting from the left to right shows Jay, Odie, Herry, Atlanta, Archie, Theresa, and Neil.
The Cyclops refer to Cronus as their half brother. Technically, he is their full brother because they share the same mother and father.
Contrary to the show, there were no existing human beings during the time of the Titanomachy. However, this depends on which version of the creation myth one refers to -- in Hesiod's 'Work and Days', the first race of mortals lived during Cronus' reign.
While the heroes were fighting with shields and swords at the begining, Atlanta is the only one without a sword, she is only armed with a shield.
In this episode we find out that Mr. Suez is Zeus.
Neil's sentence, "All work and no play makes Jay a dull boy," is a referance from the sentence, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy", a line from "The Shining"
David Kaye who plays Cronus in Class of the Titans, also played Talos in the series Mummies Alive!
One of the Fates is shown leading Jay to the Underworld but this is contrary to Greek mythology and the Olympian faith. It's Hermes who leads departed souls to the Underworld. He is also the one god who is not affected by the presence of death.
Aconite and asphodel are completely different plants, so why would aconite be the only thing growing in the Plains of Asphodel?
According to the show, Cerberus is supposedly friendly to all those who enter Hades. This is not true. If Cerberus really was friendly, would Orpheus have to lull it to sleep with his lyre so he could get Eurydice back?
When the kids are in the Hall of Judgment in the Underworld and Minos' is about to send them to Tartarus, watch the background figures behind everyone except Herry -- every time we see them, you can see a Catholic nun standing with the souls awaiting judgment. It seems like in the show's universe, the Olympian faith is the right one.
On Calypso's Island, Greek myths say that no one can age or die there, so how is Calypso having to get a new boyfriend every hundred years when one dies if they can't?
Calypso was supposed to have died of grief after Odyseuss left her island.
In the show, it is Dionysus who discovers a cure for the virus. In Greek mythology, Dionysus' opposite is Apollo and he happens to be the god of healing and medicine, until his son took over that.
Achilles' spear could only be wielded by him because of its immense weight. Therefore, even though Archie is his descendent, he shouldn't have been able to fight with the spear.
