Top Ten Favorite Gods from the Percy Jackson Series

Who the best god from percy jackson and the heroes of olympus?
The Top Ten
1 Hades

Hades is so misunderstood! I mean, sure, he hated Nico at the beginning but you would be sad or alone if your anoying brother zeus shut you out too! He is the best

He is the best god and no one cane change my mind. Sure, he detested Nico at the beginning, but he came to like and encourage him later. He is also a good husband, just misunderstood. I love him.

Try to change my mind that Zeus is the least powerful out of the big three. Hades has to put the most effort into his job, he is very close to dangerous monsters, and the dead out number the living by the millions. Poseidon can control 2/3 of the world and cause earthquakes. Zeus is also the youngest out of the three. Hades never broke the oath that he was forced to agree with. He also rarely ever cheats with his wife and cares fore his children.

He was a good father to his children. He was also quite loyal to his wife. I say quite because he still on occasion would stray and have demigod children.

Yes he is dark but that is understandable due to him being the god of the underworld. Judge of the Dead. So on and so on.

He needs More respect from his siblings and for people in general to understand his position.

2 Poseidon

He's so kind 100% better than his grumpy old brother Zeus, he actually cares for Percy and instead of being embarrassed he claimed Tyson he is amazing what more could you want in a dad? Out of the big three he's my favourite PLUS He's god of OCEAN such an amazing thing to be a god of if I was in Percy Jackson I would want to be his daughter for sure!

Poseidon is technically my dad cause I took quiz and I got Poseidon so yeah and Poseidon is the most chillest Greek god so that is why I vote for him.

Poseidon is awesome! I always have loved the sea, and the only thing I don't like about Athena is their rivalry! I love Percy, and Poseidon is a lot like Percy.

I love how similar Percy and Poseidon sometimes are. Their looks, their personality, their attitude, their temper, and how it all reflects the sea ('The sea does not like to be restrained'). He may very well be the most powerful of the Big Three, considering he can not only control the whole sea, but he can also control part of Zeus' and Hades' domains as the Stormbringer and the Earthshaker.
Poseidon may not get the 'Best Father of the Year' Award, but he still is one of the Gods who care the most about their children. (He visited Percy when he was a baby, asked Sally to live with him in the sea with Percy, sent Cyclopses to watch Percy, visited him on his birthday and left his palace to almost be destroyed when Percy asked him to.)
I wish we had seen him more in the series, especially in HoO.

3 Apollo

In PJO and HoO I hated Apollo, he's so stuck up and his haikus are HORRIBLE. But when I read Trials of Apollo, I realized how cool he is! Not only his narration was wildly funny, but his character development was great! In the first book, you see how proudly and vainly he talks about himself, then as the series progressed, you see him turn into a kind, empathetic person that cared about everyone around him. The only thing that didn't change about him was how bad his haikus were, but they went from horrible to horribly FUNNY! :)

I liked him even before trials of apollo he has cool powers and is funny, but after I liked him even more. I liked the changes he goes through as a mortal and how he actually learns to CARE about demigods.

In the percy jackson book series I HATED Apollo but I started reading the trials of apollo and I realized that he is funny, sassy, and one of the best gods of the age! nobodycan change my mind

Apollo is just amazing he's a kind brother to Artemis and is sweet and good looking...He's cool and kind to Percy and helps him when he needs it I also love his powers like poetry, music, the sun, light and so much more and after I found out about his car now my dream car: a sun chariot

4 Artemis

Such a cool goddess honestly and what she stands for is rlly cool with women independence. She doesn't understand dating tho…

I LOVE Artemis! Her no-nonsense personality and her ferocity is amazing! I wish I could hunt a quarter as good as her.

She always fights for what is right. And she fought for them not to Kill Percy in the Titans Curse.

She has always been my all time favorite goddess. Would join her hunt in an instant if I could.

5 Hestia

Hestia is by far the best god/goddess of them all she is the oldest so she should have ruled Olympus and if she had the world would be way better because she isn't about war and then she would have made sure that there was no world war 1 or 2 and she is best. She is very kind to Percy and Nico when they find her near Luke's house and she is very awesome. Also men started most wars so it would be best if a woman ruled because there was this one war where each man killed at least 10 men or less but ONE WOMAN killed 300 So I Mean just saying but like the woman literally saved them tho.

She had the heart to give up her Olympian seat for the god of being drunk! I would never be able to do that. The goddess of the hearth seems like the goddess of the heart to me. Love her :)

Hestia is the only Olympian that still has a heart. Her kindness is way too underappreciated. I'd honestly choose her as a mother out of all of them. Just look back at greek mythology, she's the only one who doesn't objectify us 'puny mortals'. Also, she was clever enough not to get married and ruin her life. She is forever The Last Olympian.

I dare you to find a more kind hearted goddess then Hestia.

I mean she willingly gave up her position as one of the Olympians to Dionysus so as not to cause strife with her family. Dionysus!

She could be the most powerful of the greek gods. She is the oldest out of them.

6 Dionysus

If I was a Greek God, I'd probably be him.

Is a old drunk.

7 Aphrodite

She's really pretty and has some pretty smart and brave children, like Piper. Aphrodite herself is sometimes a bit selfish though.

8 Ares

HE'S EVIL I hate this guy! He's such a snob and thinks he's so cool well news flash Ares your a jerk! Just throwing it out there Poseidon being such the sweet guy that he is made poor Hephaestus release Ares from the net he made to catch Aphrodite cheating on Hephaestus with Ares he should have left the stupid fire face in the net I say...but hey it's just an opinion :]

Kinda evil, but whatever

Just is so bullheaded.

He is a war god.

9 Hermes

Why is hermes this low? He should be at the top because he is one of the gods who actually cares about his family! He is a very kind hearted guy.

Hermes is absolutely lovely he's kind to Percy and just wants the best for Luke I have to admit he could have actually been nicer and a better father to Luke but I love Martha and Gorge my favourite snakes! Gorge is always like "Have you brought me a rat? Come on at least a mouse?"

With all due respect, Hermes should at least be above Ares, Aphrodite, Hades, and Dionysus. He did honestly care deeply about his children and assisted Percy in numerous aspects in the PJO series. He's the greatest, he had a big heart and is extremely consciences. He made me realise how utterly amazing parents could be.

I hated Hermes because of how much he neglected Luke, even though Luke clearly needed attention or he would start to resent the gods. I think Hermes knew and could've stopped Luke turning on the camp but chose not to, and I really don't like him

10 Athena

Athena is so...SMART! I love Annabeth, and she gets most of her Annabethness from Athena. She's really fierce, and along with Artemis as a great woman warrior.

Smartest goddess out there I mean she can be a bit hot headed at times but who's not? She may have threatened Percy but it was only to help Annabeth, she's so underrated and deserves to be above Ares and Aphrodite.

I liked Athena until I learned what she did to Arachne. You can say that Arachne deserved that punishment. But you can say the same thing about all of that Athena's demigod kids? Did they deserve that punishment too? My blood literally boiled when I saw that Athena sent all of that kids of hers to the literal death tournament; to a monster's hand that she herself had created with her own damn hands. All that children died because of Athena's own creation of the mess. She could have ended this all mess from the start, but she didn't. She literally created an endless circle of death situation.

No matter what she will always be my most favourite god/goddess. She only threatened Percy because she cares about Annabeth and the world.

The Contenders
11 Demeter

Demeter is strict and demanding- as can be observed when Percy is captured by Hades. She yells at Persephone when she doesn't want to eat cereal.

12 Hephaestus
13 Iris

Iris is best because I'm writing a book and my second main character is son of iris, in case you forgot iris helped hazel,Percy, and frank and she was soooo kind to them. I like how calm she is and she is non violent which is cool because not all problems are gonna be solved by wars and arguing sometimes just peace will make things right or a good talk or stuff like that.

She was funny

14 Hecate

Hecate is best, she helped Hazel and the demigods and I'm writing a book and my main characters are the kids from minor gods and the main character is daughter of Hecate so yeah. Hecate also gives choices to everyone she meets and I love that because choice is very important to me.

She helped Hazel a lot. Hecate probably helped the seven demigods more than anything else

15 Persephone

Persephone should be above Ares and Aphrodite! She's so kind and generous even tho she wanted to go back to her mom Demeter she was still sweet to Hades and eventually fell in love with him...no wonder she can calm him down...

She's really sweet and defended Percy when he was captured by Hades.

Beautiful so sweet.

16 Eros

Eros is the best! Nico never would have come out without him, and the scepter scene was my favorite chapter in the entire franchise (that's saying a lot) also, Psyche is awesome, and Psyche and Eros is my favorite Greek mythology.

So hot! He's Aphrodite, only not annoying and stereotypical.

Eros for the win

17 Nyx

I like nyx because her name means night and mine means night as well but my name isn't nyx it means night in another language but anyway nyx is cool.

18 Khione

Great villain. Though technically she's a Disney princess...

19 Gaea

She is a primordial.

20 Nike

She's strong but a little crazy.

She's really funny and her chapters were some of my favorite in BoO

She is so funny!

21 Chaos

He is a primordial.

22 Medusa

C,mon stop kidding Medusa ain't a god or goddess or whatever...

She's not a goddess Stupid!

Medusa's not a god...

Is she even a God?

23 Amphitrite

I don't know much about this goddess but if she's with Poseidon she has to be kind at least he wouldn't take a bratty little snob like...Aphrodite for example

24 Tartarus
25 Ouranos

He did literally nothing in the books.
