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

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.

2 Apollo

He is hilarious and we need something to balance Artemis. However, I rank him lower. He was a jerk and a bit selfish. Also, I couldn't handle the poems.

He was a straight up jerk but after trials of Apollo he changed for the better. Good job. Next time Zeus or ares should get turned into a mortal

Apollo is funny and kinder to mortals than most of the other gods also he is one of only god who help demigods on their quests.

3 Poseidon

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.

4 Artemis

She is a strong, no-nonsense female character. She actually takes other people's advice and is incredibly kind and smart. Also, I love the sibling rivalry. I take the Artemis side all the way.

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.

Really nice because she founded the hunters of Artemis which helped demigods. I mean come on she has got to be the nicest.

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.

6 Aphrodite

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

7 Dionysus

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

8 Ares

I don't even think he should be in this list of favourite gods in Percy Jackson, But I think He could be in a favourite greek gods list. In the REAL myths, he does not start a war for absolute fun, like in Percy Jackson. He NEVER tries to kill anyone for fun in the myths.

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

9 Athena

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.

10 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.

She is pretty awesome. Anyone who is Meg McCaffrey mother has to be awesome

The Contenders
11 Hephaestus

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

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

12 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

13 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...

Honestly, I voted for her because her marriage is one of the most stable. She deserves kudos for that.

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

14 Hermes

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

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.

16 Khione

I just, Disney princess? Do any of you listen in ancient history classes? I'm pretty sure that most people's knowledge of mythology is from the Riordanverse. It's kinda sad

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

17 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.

I love that he gets Nico to come out!

18 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.

She seems nice. Also, headcanon: she grieves every hunters death and thinks of them as her own family.

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

20 Chaos

He created the world. Doesn't get more awesome than that.

21 Medusa

Medusa was a mortal who was turned in to a monster by Poseidon! She's a monster, not a goddess!

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

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 Gaea
25 Tartarus
