Theseus and Heracles were very similar characters in mythology In this paper I plan to point out these similarities and also tell what is different between them First of all Theseus and Heracles were both well know for their strength and hero-like attitudes They were well known for helping people or places out from certain evils such as Theseus killing the Minotaur so that the tributes to it would cease Much of these similarities are all because of Theseus who looked up to Heracles and basically wanted to be just like him From the time that Theseus was old enough and left Troezen he and Heracles would sometimes perform almost identical tasks However they do have different reasons for performing these tasks Heracles does them because he has to He must complete ten labors so that he can free himself of the guilt of killing his family Theseus does them only because he wants to help people Why were on the subject of differences now Id like to mention their knowledge of women Heracles would seem to know what he was doing with women considering he impregnated 50 of them in one night But he actually doesnt have a clue and he doesnt understand that they posses the wisdom that he lacks Theseus on the other hand understands them perfectly and is able to trick them into doing what he wants them to Just like he tricked the Amazon queen Antiope into joining his side and fighting against her own people One last difference between these two mythological heroes
