The Wilhelm Scream is heard in this scene, as the cyclops destroys the city while searching for Hercules.
The Wilhelm Scream is a stock sound effect first used in the film Distant Drums (1951). Sound designer Benjamin Burtt, Jr. rediscovered the sound effect scream and used it in Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983). Named for the character Wilhelm, from The Charge at Feather River (1953), Burtt also used the distinctive scream in each of the Indiana Jones movies.
