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

In the book he is such a good meaning dad and come on he always was very friendly (in godly therm's) to everyone. maybe a bit could but civil. And never forget how you just need to get how lonely he feels, and he's happy reaction at the end of the war against Kronos when the Olympians accept and recognize hem.
Also in real Mythologie he is the most civilized god.

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.

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 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.

2 Poseidon

Hello... he is twin son of Hades, older then Zeus, cares about his children, and controls parts of his brothers domain as stormbringer and earth shaker, plus he is Percy Jackson's father.

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.

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 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

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.

I'm probably biased since I'm ignoring the many, MANY horrible things he did (Halcyon anyone?) but I still adore him. Wonder what that says about my judgement?

He es an lonely lovesick god who just would need one time in he's live to be the normal teenage that he should be.
My voting may be not totally pure but I have a bit a crush on hem.

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! :)

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

For some reason I just liked Hestia the first time I saw her. She was like an hearth in a person's heart... just seeing her in front of the hearth kinda makes me sad. It's like she was trying to make the last burning ember, which was a god she liked's life survive...

6 Aphrodite

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

I love them all

7 Dionysus

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

Is a old drunk.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Why the hell is Athena frigging tenth? When people hate her because of what she did to Arachne, I'm like: "ArE yOu StUpId?!" Like bruh, every god/goddess has a stern story, Example: Artemis turned someone into a stag and made his dogs hunt him because he saw her naked. Aphrodite ordered Eros to kill Psyche because she was too beautiful. You blame her for her punishing, but if you actually know your Greek mythology, you know that every god/goddess has done something like that, or even worse. Then, people are like: "I don't like Athena because she voted for Percy to die and she doesn't want him to hang out with Annabeth." You know, when she voted for Percy to die, she did have a point, as the goddess of wisdom, of course she did. If Percy didn't die, there was a chance of the whole world to go extinct, and Athena was literally the only one who understood that. As for not wanting Percabeth, she thinks it's dangerous for Annabeth to date Percy because since he wasn't ...more

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

Why is she so underrated?

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 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.

I can I explain why I chose persephone? She is just a good character

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

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 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.

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 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.

17 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...

18 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!

Eros for the win

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 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

21 Chaos

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

He is a primordial.

22 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...

She's not a goddess Stupid!

Medusa's not a god...

23 Nemesis
24 Gaea

She is a primordial.

25 Tartarus
