Pretty much all of our favourite scenes in the Disney classic Hercules involve Megara, or Meg as she is also known.

Hercules' sassy love interest (voiced by Susan Egan) is a total scene-stealer and one of her best moments occurs as she starts catching feelings for Wonder Boy.

After a day spent together, she finds herself feeling sparks, but gives herself a quick reality check as she sings the iconic song, I Won't Say (I'm In Love), reminding herself that she has been burned before.

As she sings and walks through a Greek courtyard, she passes a number of large statues and works of art.

The camera focuses on a few that appear to show lovers embracing – but a Disney fan has spotted something rather 'concerning' about some of the other ones.

In a post on TikTok, a user named @elldramaticaromantic shared her observation.

As the scene plays on her television in the video, the TikToker says: "Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, hold on…

"So I never noticed this before, but in Hercules, in the part where she sings I Won't Say (I'm In Love) there's a part where she says 'I thought my heart had learned its lesson' and the statues that she passes by, these aren't love scenes.

"These are assault scenes from Greek mythology, like no wonder she's trying to be cautious!"

She captioned the video: "Paying more attention to the art in Hercules and oh my gosh."

This comes after a Disney fan recently went viral on TikTok after realising what 23-19 meant in Monster's Inc.

The woman, named Fyiya thinks she figured it out and shared her theory in a TikTok video.

In the clip she says: "Oh my god. I was today year's old when I realised when I used to watch Monsters, Inc. I used to be like 'what the hell is a 23-19?'

"The 23rd letter in the alphabet is W and the 19th letter is S.

"Standing for white socks. Yep."
