The relationships of Hades throughout the Descendants franchise.



Due to being in Zeus' shadow, Hades resents his brother and further began hating him when Zeus bestowed the Underworld to him though Zeus was unaware Hades greatly despised his new home, the latter began planning on overthrowing his brother and briefly did so before Hercules arrived to Mount Olympus.


(Nephew) Hades also greatly resented his nephew even when Hercules was a newborn and on the same day he began his plan to overthrow Zeus, Hades had Pain and Panic kidnap Hercules to turn him mortal so that with his nephew out of the way, Hades' plan to overthrow his brother would work, Hades was then assured by his minions that his nephew was dead and for seventeen years, he believed them until learning that his nephew survived. Hades began to find an army of creatures only for his plans to be foiled by his nephew, Hades eventually stole Hercules' strength so that Megara would be free only for the deal to be broken when Megara was killed, Hercules eventually made a deal with his uncle that would bring Megara back to life and have him placed into the River Styx instead. Hades was then punched into the same river when Hercules retrieved Megara's soul as his actions were deemed heroic enough to regain his status as a God..



Despite walking out of Mal's life when she was a baby, Hades eventually reunited with his daughter during his attempted escape from the Isle of the Lost where the two engaged in a fight that ended with Hades draining Mal's magic that took her out of her dragon form. When Mal later went to her father's cave in hopes to get his ember to stop Audrey, Hades claimed him leaving was necessary for his daughter to grow though he eventually handed over his ember. Hades later made up for leaving by reviving Audrey before thanking Mal for allowing him to see off the Isle, when the barrier was taken down, Hades then returned to Auradon to meet Mal and his soon to be son-in-law, Ben.
