Phil is discouraged after his rival hero trainer [[Chiron]] ([[Kevin Michael Richardson]]) points out that he's never actually been a hero, and therefore can't train them.

But when Hercules must save the city of Corinth from a bronze bull called Catoblepas (the same city where Phil is selling), he needs his old trainer's help to defeat it. Phil teaches him hands-on sensory deprivation training – relying on the four senses besides sight – to defeat the bull, as its eyes can knock a person unconscious. With Phil's direction, Hercules drives the bronze bull into a river, and proclaims Phil as a hero, as without him, he could not have won.
