Nemesis is a character from Hercules. Nemesis is the Olympian demi-goddess of Vengeance and the head of the Infernal Retribution Service (IRS) whose main duty is to smite all and any mortal who disgusts, defies and/or disrespects some Olympian Deity or even all of the Olympian Deities. Nemesis is voiced by Linda Hamilton.


Nemesis is incredibly devoted to her duties and enjoys the thrill of the hunt and smiting, becoming incredibly frustrated and impatient on missions that require only a tracking skill rather than her fighting ability. Employing the ability to shape-shift her hands into weapons as well as various super-senses, Nemesis is an incredibly terrifying foe on the battlefield having been even capable of defeating three Egyptian deities in her normal size (while they were having titanic proportions).

Nemesis in Hercules: The Animated SeriesEdit

Hercules and the King For a DayEdit

After Pan, king of the satyrs failed to give offerings to Demeter, Nemesis was instructed to impose divine retribution to Pan. However, Pan tricked Philoctetes into taking his place as the king and Nemesis, being unaware of the switch, attempts to smite Phil instead him.

Luckily, Nemesis is then stopped by Hercules and Demeter.

Hercules and the RomansEdit

While Hercules has been searching for a missing Icarus during a weekend, who was actually in Rome, Zeus orders Nemesis to help Hercules find Icarus. And then, to find him in the Eternal City pretending to be a god, Nemesis attempts relentlessly to smite him because it.

The Greek deities and once again Hercules himself as well stops her.
