Glory of Heracles is a Japanese video game series and first game's title to the American release. The game consists of 5 main characters: ???, Leucos, Axios, Heracles, and Eris.


??? woke up on the shores of Crete with amnesia, and finds another person, who makes him jump off a cliff with him (or her). They find out both of them are immortal, and set out for Mount Olympus to ask the gods to answer their questions. While escaping a forest, ??? finds out from the sneaky nymphs that he is the legendary Heracles. Along the way, they find a man who makes women swoon at the look of him, a buff man claiming to be the legendary hero Heracles, and a little girl who looks too wise for her age who can do magic very well and strong. They all have the same problem, except Eris knows she was in an accident in a collapsing factory thing. They rescue a princess of Athens who opens Heaven's Gate for the group. They go through a maze, then Heracles and ??? go through a maze, battle all the bosses they've battled before: Orthros, Hypnos, Kraken, and Sphinx.
