Smartest Percy Jackson Characters

The Top Ten
1 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase is a daughter of Athena and one of the main characters of both the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series. She's also Percy Jackson's girlfriend and has no particular powers aside from her brains and tactics.

I think Annabeth is smartest, especially if she was having grades in school. She is interested in architecture, knows all about Greek and Roman monsters, ect. I do think people exaggerate about Annabeth being street smart, like a good strategist, when she really isn't. Yeah in the Mark of Anthena she is with that spider women...but I think her smartness is exaggerated.

I LOVE her, but I just think Leo beats her just by a bit. This is because she is kinda expected to be smart because of her mother. She (I think) could beet her mother in strategy, but Leo could put build anyone. So it's just different types of intelligent. Although both of them could talk themselves out of any situation.

2 Leo Valdez Leo Valdez is a major character from the book series Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan. He is one of the seven heroes in the Prophecy of Seven. He is a Greek demigod and is the son of Hephaestus / Vulcan, and has the ability to create and manipulate fire (pyrokinesis).

HE BUILT A WHOLE SHIP. Also the line "I try not to think. It interrupts being nuts"now this is very interesting because it showcases that there is so much going on in his head that if he did start thinking he would be overpowered. He is most definitely "acts dumb is smart" these are typically THE smartest people you will meet in really life. While I love Annabeth and everything she wants people to know and understand that she is smart. While Leo doesn't care what people think of his brain, or he just doesn't want people to think he is smart. Kinda a long term power move.

3 Athena

Athena is the goddess of intelligence. I think that's all that needs to be said.

While Athena is smart, intelligence and wisdom aren't the same things.

She is a goddess of wisdom! No need to say more than this...

4 Nico di Angelo Nico di Angelo is a fictional character created by Rick Riordan. He appears in Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Hero of Olympus, and parts of Trials of Apollo. As a son of Hades, the boy is a demigod. He befriended Percy and had many roles in his long time appearance including stopping Minos, fighting... read more

Okay why is athena in third place but whatever I think that nico should at least be 2place. I Mean the guy has done a lot of smart things like finding a way to bring his sister back to life and never did but could have if he wanted to.

He pulls the whole thing together. I think he has more street smarts then book smarts but I also has high book smarts. He is most definitely underrated when it comes to his intellectual abilities.

So, he tricked a lot of peeps. He figured out the iron skin. GO NICO!

5 Hazel Levesque
6 Connor Stoll

Numerous thefts and getting away with several of them! They got there father cleverness ( who should really be on this list he was able to steal a cattle when he was 5 and almost got away with it! ) Anyway they are really clever in my opinnon Connor and Travis for life!

Smart and sneaky. Kind of like Fred and George from Harry Potter

7 Thalia Grace

Thalia is smart when it comes to fighting, really smart. But, I guess that since she's so much like Percy, she sometimes misses the obvious stuff. But Percy is intelligent as well

8 Percy Jackson Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a fictional character, the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

If any of you have read a Percy Jackson book you would know that Percy pretends to be stupid, or acts that way, but is actually really smart. Annabeth agreed with that along with Hazel as is mentioned in the books, and surely anyone who knows about Percy would agree with it too. Also, why is Jason up there, he dedicated himself to getting minor gods recognition, which is smart, but Percy sacrificed immortality for that, which is much bigger, especially when he brings the gods into it.

Percy is smarter than Piper. He can be very sneaky and he can sometimes make combat plans in a moment. Piper is more about following her guts. He is also very sarcastic and he is the one of the Seven that notices god's flaws the most. He can be oblivious to some things but he can also be very observant when he pays attention

9 Piper McLean Piper McLean is a fictional character created by Rick Riordan in The Heroes of Olympus series. She is one of the Seven of the prophecy and is the daughter of Aphrodite.

She pretty talked Gaea asleep. Sure, pretty talking makes your character seem soo smart. In actuality it was Rick wanting to make her seem awesome after stating that if she woke she would be undefeatable. So how do two demigods with a few weeks of training defeat a GOD? Also, real smart to stereotype all the children of Aphrodite as losers because they are girly. Real smart to sit in bed drooling over Jason and complain of being useless, when she doesn't try to do anything. And manipulating Jason when he had amnesia... No. Just effing no

10 Reyna Avila Ramirez-Arellano

Reyna is so much greater than Piper. Piper isn't in any way, shape or form of amazing.. Reyna is an incredible leader and Piper does have her moments, but let's face it. There is no way Piper is smarter than Reyna. Piper literally gets almost everything handed to her. Money, looks, boyfriends, charmspeak. Reyna had to actually struggle.

The Contenders
11 Jason Grace Jason Grace was the Roman demigod son of Jupiter (Roman God of the Sky) and the late actress Beryl Grace, the younger brother of Thalia Grace (whom Beryl had with Jupiter's Greek form Zeus), the former co-praetor of Camp Jupiter, the Counsellor of Cabin 1 at Camp Half-Blood, the former boyfriend of... read more

He's smart and became praetor. He survived alone since he was two and figured out the pat Nico was bait in MoA

12 Chiron

According to me, Athena is the wisest obviously, annabeth is right beneath her, Leo is next, Reyna Percy and Jason are tied, piper and Hazel are tied to.

I guess Chiron is pretty smart. He is VERY old so he must gain all those knowledge all those years. He knows a lot, I guess. But not too much.

13 Daedalus

This guy was a legacy of Athena AND Hephaestus. He was rewarded in his homeland for being smart. You know, until he pushed his nephew off a cliff. He built the Labyrinth, though! That's nice.

14 Luke Castellan

Although he is not exactly wise, and apparently majorly lacking good sense, there has to be some kind of intelligence and wittiness in stealing from the King of the Gods, and fooling practically all members of Camp Half-Blood. Besides, there has to be some intelligence in surviving a few months of living in the streets.

He was low key right about the gods. Just blinded by Kronos about the Titans.

15 Ella the Harpy
16 Grover Underwood

He is very intelligent, but underestimated. He is definitely shown as very wise, especially after the pan dying thing and making Grover lord of the wild

17 Frank Zhang
18 Rachel Elizabeth Dare
19 Poseidon
20 Kronos
21 Hermes
22 Iapetus
23 Zeus
24 Sally Jackson
25 Josephine (Trials of Apollo)
