When Hercules brawls the Nemean Lion, he figures out a way to slay the lion; by burning its fur off. Without its impenetrable fur, the Nemean Lion is vulnerable enough for Hercules to deal a killing blow. Later, Hercules earns his first badge for completing his first labor.
- The Nemean lion is based on the beast of the same name from Greek Mythology.
- S5, E13: "Labor of Love" (badge)
