Zeus is a large, muscular man, towering over even his own son. He has a large nose, squinted eyes, a curled mustache, curly hair, and a stylized goatee.
At some point, Zeus decreed that his son Hercules could only join Olympus if he could complete twelve tasks for Eurytheus of Arcos. Even then though, Zeus did not deem Hercules ready. It was only after Hercules thanked Amy Rose and Tekno the Canary for saving his life and apologizing did Zeus appear and reveal that his last task was to understand that everyone was equal. Zeus then restored his son's health and took him up to Olympus.
