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

He actually cares about his wife. Is there any other (male) god who actually does that. Not to mention although there's been some cold moments between them he is a good father (for a god) am I the only one who remembers Jules alberts the zombie chauffeur. He also got the shorter end of the stick compared to his brothers not even allowed on Olympus didn't have a throne there despite being 1 of the 12 olympians and still considered an evil freak/villain by everyone.

Guys, Hades is the best god ever. He goes out of his way to help his kids with quests, or at least give them a little reassurance. Example: The whole chapel of bones thing.

He just compared Nico to Bianca because he was angry, and bitter. In reality, he really cares about his son, and loves and supports him. In BoO, it gives a hint that Hades knows about Nico's crush, but is still willing to support him.

Also, he really cares and loves Persephone, as he rarely cheats on her. he only cheats on her when he truly loves someone, like Maria di Angelo, and only cheats on Persephone because she isn't there for HALF HIS LIFE.

He cares about his family. He only love a few people because of loyalty to his wife. HE TALKS TO HIS KIDS AND TELLS THEM STUFF not just telling them that something is going to happen. He also gives them stuff. ( Hazel paper and crayons and Nico a zombie driver) Also he is so misunderstood which actually makes him a better person

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.

2 Poseidon

Poseidon's a rly kind god, and cares for his son. He's also has a good sense of humour. One of the reasons he isn't number 1 tho, is he only claims Percy because he needed him to retrieve the Lightning Bolt.

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.

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.

Ok, so when I read the percy jackson series I thought "Well this dude is a bit boring" and he same for the heroes of Olympus. But after I read the trials of Apollo I realized he was kind hearted, dramatic, sassy and over all good god!


Do I have to explain this? Apollo is rly funny and kind, especially as Rick shows it in TOA. At first he is a bit egotistic, but later he actually cares about his children and other demigods.

4 Artemis

Artemis is strong, a leader, and a feminist. I love her. She also stands up for Percy in the Titan's Curse. The only reason she's this low on my list is because she recruited Bianca, when she knew full well that Bianca was the only family Nico had left.

I'm a feminist and I love Thalia Grace.(no, not in that way). Artemis has contractable tents, is Apollo's sister and will be twelve forever. Do you really need more reasons?

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.

5 Hestia

Come on? How can you not love hestia? Also can I ask, how is it that its always Nico that looks after the people that everyone else forgets about? Bob anyone?

Hestia is really kind-hearted and she is like a mother. She always does what is best. Like giving up her throne for Dionysus. That was a really selfless act.

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.

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.

6 Dionysus

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

Is a old drunk.

7 Ares

Oh come on. In real Mythology, Poseidon is a rapist, Ares is a feminist, and doesn't start wars for no reason and DEFENDED his daughter and killed Poseidon's son (not Percy) to save her, and is the Patron of the Amazons. He is not dumb and bloody. People, please crack open a real mythology book, not one by Riodan

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.

8 Aphrodite

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

9 Hermes

Hermes really cares about his kids, and I don't see why he's BELOW Ares and Aphrodite. Like... bruh. Hermes loves Luke, and only didn't interfere and help him because he had no other choice.

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.

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.

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?"

10 Athena

Athena. She is amazing. She is smart, wise, and was only mean towards Percy to protect her daughter. But the reason she is so low on my list, is because Athena literally sent all of her kids on a death quest because of a mistake that she made. But, she did help them out when they battled the giants, fighting side by side with Annabeth, so, I'm not really sure.

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.

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.

The Contenders
11 Hephaestus

Aww, he's just a little…misunderstood. I mean, he tries to bd a good father in the best way he new how. His mother abandoned him and he only gets found by the nice nymph in the Roman version, when he's Vulcan. he's a good dad really

Guys... this is Leo Valdez's dad. I admit, he isn't the best dad there, but he still cares about his kids.

12 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.

13 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.

Hecate helped the demigods on their quest, even when none of them were her kids. That's why I like her.

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

14 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 wonder she can calm him down...

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

Beautiful so sweet.

15 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

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

She's awesome. I'm using her for a fanfiction. Nyx seems to care about and like her children, refusing to pick a favorite, and after Hypnos got in trouble with Zeus, he hid in her palace and she defended him from Zeus. Pretty awesome mom moment

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 Gaea

She is a primordial.

19 Nike

She's funny. That's why I like her. I mean, the rest of the options to vote for didn't exactly work for me, and Nike was the best one. She also helped out in the battle against Gaea, so yeah.

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!

20 Chaos

He is a primordial.

21 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?

22 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

23 Nemesis
24 Tartarus
25 Ouranos

He did literally nothing in the books.
