The Top Ten

Poseidon - God of the Sea, Earthquakes and Horses
"i love this god he is so awesome,
I love the sea, horses, and if they don't kill harm or destroy anything I like earthquakes to.
He is the Best as you CAN SAY. I knw that Zeus is the KIng but actually Poseidon was the CHOOSEN KING befoe but just cause He was Loyal to his little brother he gave the throne to Zeus. Hades is laso good as many people think he is bad because they fear DEATH. Zeus is SOMETIMES cruel but Poseidon, I think is the Best. He has his TRIDENT and his name 'Poseidon' means the 'EARTH SHAKER' which means he can cause Violent earthquakes, Volcanoes and also hurricanes and he also has kind of power in the air, He can also cause Tsunami and Violent big Waves. HIs Symbols are the TRIDENT as it is his favourate as well as the one of the strongest weapon ever created in the whole mythology, and his other symbols are also dolphins, horses, sea birds, etc
Although that Cronus ate him, but he is the most powerful because he can shake the earth and create large sea storms, not like zeus with that stupid lightning bolt and not like Hades with a weird helm and keeps hiding in the underworld. Not like Athena with only a brian, not like ares who is hard headed and the easiest to get angry. Not like Hephaestus who only cares about technology, by the way, he is ugly! Lastly, not like Apollo and Artemis who keeps on arguing themselves.
[Newest]He is called the earthshaker for a reason

2Zeus - God of the Sky and Thunder
Zeus of Course. How Can Poseidon Be above him There Must Be a Mistake in the Hellonic Mythologicle Meta series Zeus has attained the highest feats in the entire body of myths. He has an/Universe destroying thunder bolt he is more powerful than all the other gods combine he controlls the cosmic sphere known as the sky which houses the universe and in orphic tradition the Entire multiverse He ate Phanes and now can controll all Time and space with any time line he was the ancient greeks pinacle Henotheistic God
he's king of gods! almost got killed once because of Typhon!. but he won the battle anyways! And I love poseidon too but I couldn't make up my mind! And hades OMG! You guys are devil worshippers with all your guns and violence!
The only reason Poseidon is above Zeus is because of Percy Jackson... I mean seriously, Zeus is WAY more powerful. Also, to reply to one of the Poseidon voters, Poseidon was never chosen king. They drew lots and Zeus was chosen... So Poseidon was chosen as the sea god. And he did not give his throne to Zeus, as he never had one.

Zeus singlehandedly dethroned Kronos, and was the most powerful of all the Greek gods. And LOOK AT ZEUS'S CHILDREN! Hercules, Jason, Perseus, and MANY MORE! All of the greatest heroes were Zeus's children! (Please do not include Percy Jackson since he is not really a figure from Greek mythology but from a fictional story).

Zeus controls weather, the sky, thunder, lightning, and storms! His lightning bolt is the most powerful of the godly weapons!

Just because of PJ, people shouldn't vote for Poseidon! Actually THINK about real Greek mythology, and you will see why Zeus is the best.
[Newest]Zeus is the best poseidon is lame

3Athena - Goddess of Wisdom
Athena is the best god she should be at least number four, she is the goddess art, skill, technology, war, battle, and so many more. She is also the favorite daughter of Zeus even though he swallowed his first original wife, Metis in a whole piece because it said a child from Metis would be smarter than him, Zeus
She is obviously a very intelligent and well rounded woman. She is the goddess of crafts and was the one to tame horses despite Poseidon creating them. She also created the Aegis, a powerful weapon that even Zeus likes to use. Also, she is the only one Zeus trusts to use his lightning bolts. She was the only god/goddess not to run away from Typhon and guided Odysseus home despite Poseidon's wrath. She is also the goddess of wisdom, strategy and war fare.
She overcomes all the other Gods. She was the only one on Odysseus's side, and with her help he could beat any god or beast that came his way. I mean, without wisdom, what's the use of all those other powers anyways?
[Newest]She is my favorite

4Hades - God of the Underworld
He is the best god... With his helm of darkness... Plus he ruled the dead do that just makes him awesome... Next thing he has various people such as Charon working for him
You have admit that Hades is pretty strong for a brother of Zeus and Poseidon he could send his hell hound to attack but ha is pretty strong
Hades is god of the deaths. Very mystic, great magical power and super speed. You have very intellect, and spell. God Hades to good place to serial Xena princess warrior, Hades is very good opponent to Xena.
[Newest]He is definitely misunderstood.
More comments about Hades - God of the Underworld

5Apollo - God of Light and the Sun
He is also the god of music. That is the main reason that I voted for him in the first place. The god of the sun is also interesting as well.
Apollo is more powerful then poseidon, his power over he sun can burn the earth and the oceans and skies, as seen when Phaethon wore his sun crown. He defeated both ahena and ares to keep them from fighting
[Newest]I think Apollo should be first because he is my dad

6Ares - God of War
He puts swords in his shoulders because he doesn't have room for them on his belt!
He made everybody in his family mad & so Poseidon crashes waves on the beaches to remind him to behave. He is the god of war
Ares is god in great power, good part to Ares in serial Xena and Hercules, Ares is attack style, grey costume. Master magy and fighter in weapon zord.
[Newest]Ares shall be 8th

7Artemis - Goddess of the Hunt, Forests and Hills, the Moon
I think Artemis is ' awesome. She's great with the bow and arrow and is so calm mannered and is calm when everyone is out (I think ). She also hates boys which I think is a plus.
Artemis is awesome she is amazing with a bow and arrow she reminds me of katniss everdeen from the hunger games
Artemis in goddess hunt, and goddess great power. He have gold bolt and push up weapon. In serial Xena and Hercules is Artemis back good of Athens. Artemis is do many death and cross to plane Xena. Artemis in Xena gold costeem and dangerouse bolt.
[Newest]Artemis is so powerful and talented! She kinda reminds me of Elsa!

8Hephaestus - God of Technology, Blacksmiths, Craftsmen, Artisans and Volcanoes Fire
Hephaestus is the best god, he is strong and silent, but also nicer than many other gods. He has created so many great inventions and made the world's first woman!
hephaestus is imense. He can make any thing and could blow up your school and teaches. So vote the god of blacksmiths
Hephaestus is super smart and I consider him to be one of the strongest considering he made the weapons of Zues poseidon and others, and they wouldn't be anything without them
[Newest]Tech rules! Who cares how much he can lift. It's what he can make that causes him to stand out.

9Aphrodite - Goddess of Love, Lust and Beauty
Come on! She should at least be in top ten! Even though she might not have powers that are like ESSENTIAL to your life but everyone wants beauty. And tons of people love lust and beauty... So
Sexy on every picture Plus I love Love, Lust and Beauty. Who doesn't


Come one! She is awesome! Why isn't she one of the top ten!?!?! She was born from the sea and has a famous painting after her birth! She's awesome!
[Newest]I love her so much

10Hermes - Messenger of the gods, god of commerce, thieves, travelers, sports, and border crossings
Hermes moves so fast he would be across the universe before you even begin to blink, if you try to fight this guy it's game over, he delivers billions of punches on you in seconds. He is pretty much the Flash made into a Greek God. He could pretty much defeat every god before they even know he is taking down their relatives. He moves between dimensions, as he has been in the underworld and Olympus as well. Just got a check for a million dollars? No you didn't cause Hermes just ran by and made it his. Nobody stands a chance against a dimension jumping, super speed, theif, juggernaut, god.
Hermes is a greek mythological god and is the god of commerce, thievery and travel. He is the fastest of all Gods. Hermes also has rescued Ares.
He's basically the Flash of greek mythology, and that's pretty damn cool in my book. He's also likely been in more stories than any other god or goddess acting as the communication between them. All hail the messendger.
[Newest]He is so cool he is god of games what more we want go HERMES

The Contenders

11Cronus - God of Time
Don't get mixed up with the titan Chronos They're spelled differently, but anyways Cronus could freeze time, and kill his enemy faster than they could blink!
He could stop time and all his enemies would freeze so he could pick them of with ease.
Cronus not a god but still if zeus lost his master bolt he would have no power over any one but cronus is so strong he could kill zeus then take is right ful place has king of the gods and the titans so that's why cronus is the strongest
[Newest]Isn't the Titan spelt Kronos?

12Helios - God of the Sun
Helios is awesome even though he is a titan
Plus son of hyperion
And one of the few good titans
Helios is to by final episode 5 season to Xena princess warrior. Helios is big mythology male. Helios is blond hair and shaine eyes, he is red jacket.
He is so fit he has blonde hair and blue eyes. He is always smiling and how cool is it to be able to change the weather and mess with the elements so cool
[Newest]Controlling the sun is pretty cool

13Nike - Goddess of Victory
What's better then having the goddess of victory on your side? I wouldn't make her angry otherwise in a fight... Oh oh!
Victory man. I mean, that is just too awesome. Into myths she could decide the fats of people. Like, of they were awesomeenoughto eat or not. I mean, IJUST want to kiss her.
She is cool and kind of looks like a different version of the statue of liberty

14Hera - Goddess of Women and Marriage
I hate Hera she needs a "Perfect Family" she threw Hephaestus of Olympus.
Hera's cool, but is a jerk to all of Zeus' kids. Like, it's not their fault!
Hera is werry intellect and beautiful female goddess, mystic art Hera of series Hercules. Hera is mother Hercules and husband Hera to be Zeus. Hera is have super spell and magy. Of space to round watching Hera multicolor big eyes, and she is jacket to mysticali black costeem. Hercules be opponent to mather Hera.

3 words BIG AS CRAP, complete awesome and Zeus loving son the amazing Hercules
Hercules his son God Zeus, for Hercules he many legend and mythus, Hercules his great strongest fighter. My comparison Hercules in serial, Hercules: Legendary Yournley. This serial his in internet the Tube Plus, role Hercules is me Kevin Sorbo. Serial, s Hercules and Xena is alliance, Hercules (Kevin Sorbo), his discover serial Xena and Hercules.
Hercules (or Heracles, meaning "Glory of Hera, although he dispised her), was a son of Zeus. After going through his twelve labours (for killing his wife) Hercules fought the Nemean Lion. He was turned into a minor god, which isn't really fair. He should get Themis for his lawyer.

A complete boss. No god stands up to him he is unbeatable like ash ketchup.
You can't stand up to AIR! This guy should have gotten more votes. Sure, Zeus controls storms, hurricanes, all that, but what do you think he uses to make those storms?
Awesome god he should be at least in the top 10
[Newest]This dude is dope

17Demeter - Goddess of Crops and Fruit
Demeter (Ceres in Roman version), sure knows how kick yo' butt! She rescued her beloved daughter Persephone from the grasp of that creep Hades. During her quest to find her daughter she came across a king and queen (by that time Demeter morphed into an old woman). The kind couple saw how worn out Old lady Demeter was and took care of her for a couple of days.
The queen had a baby son, and Old lady Demeter offered to mind him for the queen (even Queens need breaks), and placed him in the fire (don't worry, this didn't hurt the child as Demeter used her magical powers to make sure the fire didn't burn through the boy). Her method was that because the King and Queen showed her great hospitality, she decided to repay them by making their baby son grow up to be a powerful hero.
She's my favourite greek goddess - I'm glad she's at least at the top 20
She is a total snooze fest

18Nyx - Goddess of the Night
She's awesome you should research her she's so interesting
One of the first gods
She was one of the first and I love our children

19Pan - God of Nature, the Wild, Shepherds, Flocks, Goats, of Mountain Wilds
Pan is great god to force, and mutant to people and goat foot, devil fire body, big tail and Pan is great power.
You can't not like pan. He is probably the coolest non human looking god
Pan is half goat, that's pretty cool, & it said that women still thought he was attractive
[Newest]It stinks Pan died. I love Grover and it was his favorite god.

20Nemesis - Goddess of Revenge
Nemesis is revenge baby who doesn't like revenge
Even though she is a revenge goddess, I love her. I want to be like her. GO NEMESIS!
Love this goddess, she is one of the coolest miner goddesses

21Hestia - Goddess of the Hearth, Architecture, and the Right Ordering of Domesticity, the Family and the State
Hestia is the eldest of the gods, and gave up her throne to Dionysus to keep her family from quarreling. While there are no important myths about her, she is still one of the most powerful characters in myth.
To all the architects, parents or families and to those who are in somewhere around the world we must vote hestia the goddess of the hearth, architecture, family, and the states hestia is one of the most good goddess to all and vote her ok
Hestia is the kindest goddess. She is awesome, and I love her story, She's also technically one of the big 12, but gave up her set to dionysus.
[Newest]I love her the best because she was in charge of all weapons

22Gaia - Goddess of the Earth
Gaia is just awesome. Sorry, but she is the grandmother of Zeus, the Ultimate Goddess, the wife of Ouranos and Mother Earth! How can you beat that? Oh sure, Heroes of Olympus pass her off as a villain but she's still really cool. She's the mother of Cronos! You can't sideline that. She bore the Lord of Time! Come on!
Come on guys. The only reason all the gods exist is because of this god. She has the power to create and destroy worlds. She is Zeus' grandmother. She is as pretty as everk, and strong she has it all! 10/10
Shes kinda evil and stuff
[Newest]She is the craziest most powerful god ever

23Eros - God of Love
Eros is Aphrodite's son and technically Cupid.
Aphrodite is goddess of love

24Persephone - Goddess of Vegetation
She was a young goddess - no more than the nymphs she used to hang out with. Then, Hades married her and she expertly stepped up to being the queen and part ruler of the underworld!
She is both the daughter of the goddess of life and married the god of death
Persephone is one of my favorite goddess

25Thanatos - God of Death
He's not just god of death. Legends say he is death!
Have you seen his smite photos? He is so sick.

26Morpheus - God of Dreams and Shapeshifting
I think he is awesome since he can turn into anything. I mean really why would you want an army when you can turn into a dragon. Also he can turn anyone to sleep which is really handy
Because this god is the closest to being a god of difference and thought they don't have one so... GO! Morpheus!
He's just awesome. He can shapeshift. That's awesome.

27Perseus - Son of Zeus
Perseus is a demigod not a god.
Perseus is not a god he is a demigod (a son of Zeus) and the guy who killed Medusa.
Medusa killer over here!

28Lycaon - The Wolf King
Wolves are awesome and he created them whats not to love
The first werewolf- what's not bad-ass about this guy?

29Hypnos - God of Sleep
Sleep, what's not good about that
I love to sleep.
My favorite son of his is Clovis I love sleeping

30Ananke - Goddess of Inevitability
I get the feeling that the title is a bit too vague. To elaborate, "Ananke" is the personification of 'fate', 'destiny' and 'necessity'. Her (its? ) name literally means 'force'/'constraint'/'necessity'. She is considered the 'mother' and controller of the Moirai (The Sisters Of Fate). Her and Chronos (The personification time) are considered the beings that created the cosmos (i.E. everything) out of a primordial 'Chaos' (it's not certain in the myths if this Chaos was a self-aware being) in Greek myth. She's basically the Greek version of "Yahweh". A being that is virtually omnipotent. In Greek myth literally 'everything' that has ever happened, is happening and will ever happen, to the gods and mortals alike, the most awesome things and the most horrific, every act of falling in love, every act of torture, every war, every genocide, every birth, every death... happens because this bitch wants it to happen. She's the "Dr. Manhattan" of the ancient Greeks, except unlike him she's not just a 'puppet' who can see the strings, she's the 'puppeteer'. The Olympians can't 'fight' her anymore than a mortal can 'fight' the laws of physics. The universe is her very own T.V. show basically (and she just happens to make it as well). Also unlike Yahweh she doesn't care if we 'choose' to worship her. If she wants us to worship her she just makes us... AND YOU'RE TELLING ME SHE'S 31 (at the time of this writing)?!

31Uranus - Primordial Being of the Sky
Heres a question if YAHWEH/GOD and I (as LUCIFER/JEHOVAH) are truly mother and son we were the very and far oldest living beings in existance YAHWEH/GOD being like 1,3 billion years old maybe little older while I (as LUCIFER/JEHOVAH) are like over 1 billion years old she and I fell in love with each other and over 100 million years together we started a family together and lived almost perfectly happy life together I never tried to be unfair on anyone in existance I never tried to overthrow YAHWEH/GOD we lived happy together for millions of years and had happy family despite the fact that were mother and son would you felt shocked if I did reveal a truth here if YAHWEH/GOD only created the universe, heaven and angels while I (as LUCIFER/JEHOVAH) created music, planet earth, hell, purgatory and humanity maybe even many more planets simular to earth in every way and even granted others the power strength and will strength to achieve almost every kind of thing I could do even creating a planet like earth althought its almost impossible for a young and inexperienced so-called god or goddess almost impossible for even gaia if it would take her 1 million years before shes ready to create a planet like earth as a new home for her and if wanted to rule over it too and if there was few who was born without father and without mother if DEATH was one of them the 3d oldest after YAHWEH/GOD and I (as LUCIFER/JEHOVAH) or if he/she was the only one besides YAHWEH/GOD who had no mother no father no relative at first at least if DEATH had incredibly many descendants including gaia, nyx, tartarus and many others if this was true would you feel shocked if DEATH was like only 940 million years old maybe little younger and if DEATH had feelings for even me and if we just were friends and if he/she became parent to many if were like how you described in bible that some only had father and no mother if DEATH was like that would you feel surprised and if DEATH gave birth to many despite being a man or created many without making love to anyone if some were almost artificial life forms including gaia and nyx and if chaos was a living being but didn't like to stick to just one form if liked to switch bodies and forms from time to time would it surprised you and if gaia never conceived uranus with anyone if uranus had no father indeed like if I never had a father and if uranus fell it was either because gaia was getting carried or uranus got carried away and became foolish if he thought he could get away with much because he claimed he's like me aggressive and stubborn at times or if gaia and uranus never fought at all would you feel surprised if they were still together and lived happy and family not miserable either if stories were just made to cause confusion and disbelief if it were true and about gaia and uranus if they had an ancestor if DEATH was their ancestor how would it made you all feel and if gaia was more like me than like YAHWEH/GOD if she could be stubborn and little aggressive herself at times and not tolerated fighting if not had much patience with violence if some parents would been little like gaia and uranus whenever you want to believe it or not that's all I had to say farewell you foolish, blind, naive and misguided mortals.
One of the primordial gods gotta have respect
Sky! Atlas holds him like a baby though.

32Iris - Personification of the Rainbow and Messenger of the Gods
She's like the female version of Hermes...she's AWESOME!
Goddess of rainbows and messenger of the gods
Oh my god double rainbow all the way


33Selene - Godess of the Moon
She is so awesome! I like Hera, Iris, and Hecate. But my favourite is selena. I think you should vote for her because it say she is beutiful. I love Selene!...I love the moon!
I love Her! I love the moon the best than the sun. Well anyways...I LOVE HER!

34Akhlys - Goddess of Misery

35Metis - Goddess of good counsel
Metis is the goddess if good counsel or good advice. She was swallowed by Zeus and was Athena's mom
She is really cool, she was the mother of athena and died because of her wisdom! Should at least be in the top 15!

36Boreas - God of the North wind
Boreas is by God of the North Fuji. I compare this god Boreas offer Boreas of serial Xena: Warrior Princess. In Xena, 4 season, 1 and 2 Episode his Boreas, stay big power fighter, friend Xena. Boreas, God North Fuji discover of many episodes Xena, and he is me great power.

37Geras - God of Old Age
Why is this before triton

38Eris - Goddess of Discord

39Pontus - Ruler of the Seas
Pontus was a Titan and ruler of the sea. It's said that he helped Kronos chop up Ouronus (others spell it Uranus, but that just sounds WRONG! )
He came along before the titans and the gods and even Tartarus! Gaia made him to be her lover
Pontus is a protogenos- father of the seas

40Triton - God of the Sea
Being son of Poseidon, He is awesome! As well Poseidon he is god of the sea.
His human name is Percy Jackson

41Erebus - Personification of Darkness
Th prime evil god of darkness and shadows. This god was suppose ably offspring of chaos. I recommend researching more about this god, he's powerful enough to take chaos, zues and many more gods down.
"This god is worthy of your time and a part of life itself. He is connected to all gods as he watches over them observing their might, always keeping many steps ahead from the others"

42Hebe - Goddess of Youth


44The Moirai (Fates) - Fate
Not technically gods but personifications of fate- daughters of Chronus and Ananke- pretty mean but when you control fate-who can oppose you?

45Dionysus - God of Wine, Theatre and Ecstasy
I'am voting for the most richest god from all the Greek gods and goddess. Go Dionysus!
The god of ecstasy and wine, what else matters?
Makes great wine and allows you to have the "gold touch".
[Newest]How is a major god 44! Its insane. Some of these gods I have never heard of

How could anyone skip Hecate? She is the most interesting out of all Greek deities. She is goddess of necromancy and magic. She has also been described as the Greek Goddess of crossroads; a truly iconic occult figure who bears torches to help illuminate the shadows. She helped in locating Persopheone when she had been lost to the underworld. Her origins might even be far more ancient than that of the other gods and older than some titans as well.
In House of Hades, Hecate need help to Hazel so that she can beat Gaia
Hecate is a titaness not a goddess

47Bia - Goddess of Force
May the force be with you

48Aether - God of Light

49Janus - God of doors, choices, beginings and endings
He is awesome and has two faces
I would love to decide every ones fate I coul torch the anoing people and reward my friends!

He is stronger than gaea he can destroy every other god or goddess easily
He is the best no one can defeat him
God f the massive pot of tartarus and can own any god on this list except gaia

51Eos - Goddess of Dawn
The dawn holds the beautiful rising sun
You guys can't forget about this dude. He's a flying baby with love arrows.
Just a great name eos I wish I had a name like that and she is a bouss
