As portrayed on The Simpsons
Dionysus is the Greek God of Vine and ecstasy. Dionysus (Barney Gumble) was seen with Zeus and Poseidon after Odysseus (Homer Simpson) refuses to offer a sheep for a sacrifice. Zeus was furious at Odysseus and his action. Dionysus grabs a lighting bolt destroying Atlantis by mistake. Dionysus then asks "What happened to the Zeus who used to turn into a cow and pick up chicks?". Zeus responds saying "He grew up. Maybe you should too.".
- Barney portraying Dionysus is the fact that Dionysus is the god of drinking and partying which Barney is known to do.
