Top 10 Most Heroic Percy Jackson Characters

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

I mean, he's hands down accomplished the most in the whole series. By far. He took on titans, gods, and giants, yet remains undefeated

OF COURSE Percy is the most heroic! He is really noble to his friend, but he never gives up his quests. He is really funny, and always make me happy just thinking about him. He cares about people near him, and when he had cure of his amnesia(Frank and Percy both thought it could be a cure for his memory at that time) but he resisted because he thought there will be a battle, and someone might need it more than he does. He is really great!

Percy is definitely the bravest he went to save his friends by cleaning Geryon's barn. And also went with Annabeth to Tartarus. He also went to save Annabeth from Altas. And he also raised the sky. And defeated the god of war Ares

Percy is corky, sass, He has THE BEST one liner ever, but his fatal flaw is he will do anything for his friends. That is bravery. He got his memories wiped for the greater good of humanity. Percy is almost always about to die. Plus don't you think it takes bravery to fight Luke with a monster bug that will kill you in sixty second. Need I remind you he got stung be that. Oh by the way the one liner I mentioned before, my personal favorite, "I shook my head. "I'm a lot of things but I'm not a thief"

2 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).

Leo was WAY braver than Mr. Sneaky Jackson. If Percy worked on a war ship for six months everyday nonstop (sometimes he would even get become sick from the lack of sleep) AND alone without Annabeth by his side, then dared to save his friends' lives but almost destroying the whole ship you spent a half a year on! Then have a pet dragon you spent a long time with. It was almost as if losing a dog for your friends. And THEN sacrifice yourself for the world's safety. Percy only risked his life saving Olympus from falling, (thus the Titans may sven let the humans live)but Leo saved the whole world from being destroyed by Gaea. He was the true hero, and he should be number one because of this.

Ok, Leo is the bravest. No offense to Percy lovers, but Percy is only 2% the bravery of Leo. Leo faced DEATH. Percy could never do half the things Leo did, while I feel like Leo could do almost all the things Percy did. It is one thing to be brave to your enemies, like Percy, but the bravest thing to do is be brave to your friends, like when Leo told Piper and Jason to leave him on the Argo 2. He knew they probably wouldn't let him, but it was his job. He had to, so he forced Piper and Jason to leave him. That is true bravery.

Leo is the bravest, even braver than Percy. He faced DEATH to save the world. AND he braved everyday with a forced smile, making jokes and such. Just existing and not telling someone...he is brave. And heroic. Anyone who argues hasn't even read the series. I could come up with more examples, but that would take forever.

He got himself killed. That is pretty brave. I probably would have ranked him second instead of third, except for the fact that in the prophecy he was pretty much fated to die, and like Hades said, some death aren't meant to be prevented. Then he goes back to Calypso!

3 Hazel

Hazel sacrificed herself TWICE just so others wouldn't suffer. First, she sacrificed her life. Then, she GAVE UP ELSYIUM just so her mother (who wasn't that nice to her in the first place) wouldn't suffer. And that was all before the Heroes of Olympus series even started.

She sacrificed herself TWICE. She got herself killed to stop Alcyoneus fro rising, then she gave up ELysium for her mother. Who could be braver than her?!

Finally Hazel is recognised.

She sacrified herself to save the world from alcyoneus even if it was only for a short amount of time, she could have fled and let her mother (who treated her terrible all her life ) die, and get revange in the world that misjudged her but in the end she found the courage to pray to pluto an in the end she did the right thing even when that costed her life

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 ...read more.

I mean, he lost his mother and his sister, and he's what, 14? Plus at like 11 he went into the labyrinth by HIMSELF plus commanded legions of skeleton soldiers.

How is Nico di Angelo below Percy Jackson? Nico went through so much. His depression after losing his sister. His anxiety. The nightmares that plagued him after Tartarus. (He went through Tartarus alone, Percy had Annabeth). His discrimination because he is the son of Hades. His fear of coming out because he was born in an era where homosexuals were prosecuted. Not only is he mentally strong but he's also physically strong. This kid could raise armies of skeletons and travel around the country using shadows when he was twelve, that's the age Percy found out he was a demigod. And how can he be below Annabeth? All she does is stick to Percy. Yes brains are better than strength but I felt she was to clingy to Percy. I like Hazel but I feel that Nico is stronger than her. Leo is one of my favorite characters too and he went through some sad stuff in his past but Nico still beats him. None of these characters are as inspirational to me as Nico. I connected with him. My past is quite ...more

He always is misunderstood but has always been the bravest there is. He changed hades mind so hades would help even though he knew his father would probably kill him. He has not saved many people because he never gets a chance.

Nico went through so much and in the last of The Battle of the Labyrinth Percy wonders if he had ever had a birthday party and that is so sad... Also he did a lot of things alone and I think he is the bravest.

5 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.

Annabeth is as brave and heroic as Percy she speaks her mind she had a difficult past because she was different but she stayed brave. She saves anybody who she can to do her part I think she is much higher than this so please vote!

She is one of the bravest characters she raised the sky until Artemis came. She saved Percy's life by blocking a poison arrow and Ethan stabbing him in his Achilles spot.

Annabeth is the best character! If it wasn't for her Percy would already be DEAD. She's so smart. She could probably find the most sophisticated ways of explaining things. She's the bravest! How come she's rated so low!?

Annabeth is really brave, you know. She went out of the house when she was seven, and survived! Annabeth-throwing-hammer-part was really cool.

6 Reyna

She literally got blessed by Athena/Minerva, earning a legendary (LEGENDARY) cape, single-handedly led the entire camp to war, plus she actually put up with a certain screeching-chicken-on-fire called Octavian for a long time, every guy she liked left her, but she never had any hard feelings.

WHY is she ranked so low?! She is brought up with romans who are like absolutely not rule-breakers, yet she risked her praetorship to go bring the Athen Parthenon to CHB.

Reyna had sacrificed so much on the HOPE to save booth camps! Her life has been terrible! She has been cursed by the love goddess, she had to kill her own pegasus to put it out of misery, and she also can feel others pain. Think, she leads a lot of people and she feels ALL of their pain! Read the Blood of Olympus for more of her suffering! 😐

She sacrificed so much and she is so brave to face her past again

7 Thalia Grace

Thalia was brave enough to sacrifice herself to save her friends. She was brave enough to turn down power. She was brave enough to kick her former friend's ass. She was brave enough to take a pillar for her friends. She was brave enough to drive a sun bus into a lake. She was brave enough to ask her father for help. She was brave enough to talk about cheeseburgers in the middle of a war. She was brave enough to talk with a knife to her throat. She was brave enough to take a stand and say that she didn't want to live like a hunted animal. She was brave enough to fight countless monsters. She was brave enough to stand up to 4 goddesses. So what if she's afraid of heights? She should be at least number three

Thalia was proclaimed by both Atlas, a TITAN, and Grover, a satyr with magical half blood sensing abilities, to be, alongside Percy, the greatest hero of the age, and the most powerful demigod. Just saying...

She sacrificed herself for her friends, refused to turn against Olympus even though she was surrounded by temptation, and then saved Annabeth and Percy by taking a falling statue. She beat Luke in sword fighting. Enough said.

Thalia should at least 5th!

8 Frank Zhang

Frank is awesome

9 Luke

HE IS CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED on this list. I mean he hands down made the most impressive sacrifice in the series (sorry leo) and saved the world. Even though he made bad choices, he did what had to be done

Luke deserves to be drastically higher on this list than he is. His ordeal was probably one of the hardest in the entire damn series!

He should be #1! He was the final tipping point to stop Kronos!

10 Jason

HE SHOULD BE SECOND. Percy should be first. I LOVE LEO, but he only sacrificed himself because he had the Physician's cure. Percy and Jason would willingly sacrifice themselves any day. But come on guys. Jason DIED to save Piper, Apollo, and Meg's lives. Even though Piper broke up with him, he was still ready to fight Caligula for her. Some people don't like him just because he was serious, but he was raised by Lupa, and by Camp Jupiter, which was basically a military camp. Can you blame him for being serious? Also, what's wrong with being serious? Leo and Percy already make
enough jokes for the entire crew of the Argo II. We don't need another Percy or another Leo. I don't see what's so bad about Jason. He is a hero, a leader, a friend, and so much more. He is my fourth favorite character, and needs to be higher than 11th. And Hazel as third? Really? I love Hazel, but she is the least heroic out of the seven in my opinion. Also, Nico should be lower. He's a great character, but ...more

Okay let's talk about Jason. Personally He should be 2. I mean yeah percy is 1 but if you think that leo valdez deserves to be two you are messed up I mean leo is just some smart person and jason fought three giants in 2 days I really think Jason should be 2

I have like Jason right from the beginning, he is so very awesome and handsome too. It's a great pity that he died.

DUH! Jason should be 2nd to Percy. He saved Piper's life at the grand canyon. And he survived when he was 2.

The Contenders
11 Zoe Nightshade

She went on a quest even though she was sure that she was going to die. She was truly brave and so underrated.

She took a risk by waking up Ladon, who gave her the wound. She also charged into battle even though she was already wounded.

Zoe is amazing! She deserves to be higher

12 Grover Underwood

OK, he isn't the bravest, but Grover is brave! He was undercover in the cyclops den, He led 3 demigods who were trailed by monsters to camp half-blood, he faced his fear and went into the labyrinth, THEN faced them again with Tyson.

He went underground even though he was scared. He walked by something he was scared of alone. He's brave alright

13 Bianca Di Angelo

She took a risk by getting the Hades figurine for her brother, even though it was a dumb risk, she still did it. And she sacrificed herself to stop the machines thing.

In my mind, extremely brave. Nina a sacrificed herself and looked after Nico when Norine else was there.

She saved everybody.

14 Tyson

You bet! It's amazing that he's so brave when in Cyclops terms, he's just a baby!

15 Jasmine She is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 31st animated feature film Aladdin (1992).

I remember this sitting at the bottom of this tier list over a year ago. Now it's in 15th and climbing fast. Good job idiots.

What the heck is she doing here with a fancy disney picture?
And why in the world is she 15?

I love jasmine but she is not a Percy Jackson character.

Bravest percy jackson character . Exept for the fact she is not a percy jackson character

16 Piper

Swordplay isn't the only weapon. She can literally command people have to do and they have to obey. Plus she did learn how to use a sword. And she may have suffered the least, but she WAS neglected by her dad. It's not her fault, and I have no idea why people blame her for being born into a almost decent family.

The forced, least heroic of the seven. She has suffered the least. Remember this in the end was written and none of it happened. Each scene she featured was agonizingly forced into being.

Piper is NOT a hero. She did NOTHING and hid behind Jason's back if there was a fight.

Piper is more heroic than people give her credit for. Always remember, without her, Percabeth would be dead!

17 Ethan Nakamura

I'm sorry, but only Ethan and Percy dared to attack someone protected by the mark of Achilles.

He sacrificed an eye, and himself for the minor gods, there's nothing braver than tthat.

18 Charles Beckendorf

He knew he had no chance of surviving the explosion, yet he still activated it to try stop Kronos.

19 Sally Jackson

Dude, she risked her life on SEVERAL occasions just to make sure that Percy was OK. Definitely one of the most underrated characters in the book.

20 Magnus Chase
21 Rachel Elisabeth Dare

She hit Kronos with a hairbrush she deserves to be higher than Jasmine

22 Artemis

She's a hunting goddess! #Brave

23 Clarisse La Rue

She is so brave and heroic. Just try to argue.

24 Meg McCaffrey
25 Octavian

Come on, he literally DIED for New Rome.
Not intentionally, sure, but still.
