Funniest Heroes of Olympus and Percy Jackson Characters

The Top Ten
1 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).

"I can't summon any more gas!"
"I try very hard to be annoying. Do not insult my ability to be annoying."
"Watch me fly, I am the eagle that soars-"
"I'm the super sized McShizzle, man!"
"Go on Professor Grace! I want to get an A on the test!"

He's just so funny you can't even come close. And his humor isn't even intentional. It just comes to him. Percy is always intentionally making jokes, while Leo's funniest moments happen when he's not trying. When I reread the series, It typically looks like this:

"Eew, a Jason chapter? How 'bout I skip it... Oh. Great. I get to hear about Piper's boyfriend. And Annabeth's. Skip? LEO! OH MY GOODNESS FINALLY SOMETHING INTERESTING!"

Also, the amount of times people say "Shut up Valdez" in the series is just so funny. He's funny in the best way possible, and deserves to be known as the funniest (and best) character in Riordan, and up there for all ...more

Leo deserves this number one spot. Let me share some evidence:

"Yes, Frank Zhang. That is exactly how people get out of Chinese handcuffs. They turn into iguanas."

"I can't summon anymore gas! "

"I try hard to be annoying. Do not insult my ability to annoy."

"What's a wine god doing in Kansas? Gods are weird."

"I'm the super sized McShizzle, man! "

There are countless other Leo moments that make home the bad boy supreme that all the ladies love.
Team Leo for the win!

Come on guys, Leo Valdez has to be the funniest character in the whole dam thing! I mean seriously, there we are in a heads down combat moment, everything's tense, fangirls on the edges of their seats, pom-poms lying on the floor, everyone's wishing for the easy days of the lightning their life before we started to use the riordanverse as a drug…and then Leo comes along, says something ridiculous and we all just crack up! What I love about Leo though, is that inside, he's so insecure, all his jokes are kinda made to cover up his uncertainty, that's why he is my favourite character (feel like such an Annabeth traitor saying that but hey! What can you do?)

He should be the smartest, but he also deserves the funniest. When I'm in the middle of a Piper or Annabeth Chapter, and I'm kind of bored because they are droning on about their boyfriends, I skip immediately to the next Leo chapter, and it cheers me up.

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

Must I even explain? Oh well. I feel that Percy is the sass and humor king. Just read all the 'Percy Jackson and the olympians' books again. His wit, his character, how he can still smile, laugh and make others happy even after going through so much. And his humor and sarcasm beats all the other characters fair and square. Like when he's literally about to die, he makes some dam (sea what I did there? ) sarcastic or funny comment and somehow manages to survive. I know. A lot of people find Leo funny. But I feel that Leo was derived from Percy's character and humor, and more forced. Percy's sense of humor and sarcasm is genuine and he's like the original sass and funny king.

Personally, I think Percy is funnier than Leo. Leo tries really hard to be funny, while it comes naturally to Percy. He is so sarcastic. and his thoughts are also very funny. If Leo had narrated a whole series, I wouldn't have been as entertained as I was with Percy narrating a whole series.

Honestly I think both Percy and Leo are very funny. But it seems to come more naturally to Percy, like half of the time he's not even trying to be funny but somehow he always makes us readers laugh. He's definitely the funniest. Not to mention sassiest.

To Percy humour comes much more naturally than to Leo. To other characters in the book Leo might seem funnier butt that is only because Percy most of his sarcastic and funny thoughts keeps to himself.

3 Grover Underwood

I believe that Grover is quite comedic. That dam joke.

He just says random stuff, like "Enchiladas!"

Really? third? that's too high for grover to be honest, he was a good character but I never found him funny

He's just hilarious

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 Titans, traveling back and forth camps and during the war with Gaea he had to transport the Athena Parthenon to Camp. In the beginning, Nico was shy and scared. He had lost his mom and sister, and he couldn't trust anyone. Overtime, Nico became respected from feared and shy to confident.

He has made sarcastic comments, and has a sense of humor. Just because he's serious, doesn't mean he has no sense of humor! "With great power...comes the great need to take a nap." And don't forget about the scene in The Last Olympian, when he's facing Kronos:
Kronos: Son of Hades, do you love death so much you wish to experience it?
Nico: Your death, would be great to see
(Or something like that) He has earned his place on the list!

Okay he is not too funny but do you know his life and he still smiles and tries to make jokes just does not fit in too well with alive things or people. He is still funny but just a little scary to some people.

Well, Nico is awesome, but he is rarely funny. I mean he has a depressing past and unlike Leo he doesn't hide it so he shouldn't be this high. He was maybe funny in one or two occasions but fourth funniest? Definitely not

Ok... he's not the funniest but like remember how he used to be before Bianaca's death... like oh my gods he was so cute and also I couldn't stop laughing at what he said after he had been turned to corn - " I just had the weirdest nightmare about popcorn "

5 Gleeson Hedge

Who doesn't like a violent satyr who yells "KILL THEM" all the time?

If violence was funny it would be gleeson hedge. Die cupcakes!

Who doesn't love a satyr that is addict to violence.

It's not like he tries to be funny, but he's so pleasantly violent

6 Apollo

Me and a friend came up with a perfect haiku that he would totally make:

I am Apollo.
Artimis is very dumb
I am the best twin

A masterpiece. I think it would be his thing.

He is pretty funny! Sometimes depressing, but most of the time funny! At least funnier than the Hades kid. Nico isn't funny at all you guys know that right?

He can be funny at times while I was reading the trials of apollo series in was laughing for most of it!

He needs to be higher! And a comedian

7 Thalia Grace

Not the funniest character, but has enough humor be higher than Nico. I love Nico, but the only joke I've heard him say is the one to his father about skull re-decorating. And even his father couldn't tell whether or not he was kidding.

She is such a sassy badass. And who can forget that she still wants to go to the dam snack bar?

She's just hilarious

8 Hermes
9 Travis Stoll

I love Travis and Conner. They seem like really great and funny characters. Travis is my favorite of the two I don't know why.

I wholeheartedly agree that Travis and Connor Stoll are the funniest! Followed closely by Hedge and Leo, though!
they are all my funny children!

Conner and Travis are the main jokers. You cannot have this list without having them in the top 7.

He is fun , great and brave!

10 Dionysus

He's just hilarious

The Contenders
11 Rachel Dare

She is one of the most Soviet characters that has have existed

12 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.

How did she get so low on this list? She is hilarious like (most of) the other characters!

13 Don
14 Connor Stoll

Yay! Connor and Travis are my favorites, but my personal favorite is Connor. Don't ask why, he just is.

Dude, it's OPEN. And everyone else is asleep. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

I love the Stolls! They're hilarious and my favorite characters of all time.

Travis and Conner seem funny. I love them

15 Frank Zhang
16 Meg

Meg is the best! Cartwheeling down crosswalks? Way better than Jason

Cartwheeling down the sidewalk!

She's just hilarious

17 Tyson

He's just hilarious

18 Alex Fierro

"Uh-uh, lover boy. Chaperons says no." Alex is hilarious.

Her/his lines are hilarious! She's so funny

19 Magnus Chase

Magnus is the funniest and wittiest character other than Leo. He should definitely be number 2 or even 1!

20 Will Solace

You think that he's really easy going, and then Nico says something and he's got a whip smart comment

Will individually isn't that funny but him and nico as a comedy duo is pretty good

21 Zoe Nightshade

She is funny without meaning to be. Like at the Hover Dam- 'Let us find the dam snack bar'

She's just hilarious

22 Poseidon
23 Calypso

Calypso is very serious, yes, but she does have quite some sense of humour! Calypso's awesome!

The only one who can make a comeback that will leave Leo breathless.

24 Clarisse La Rue
25 Ella the Harpy
