Top 10 Most Powerful Demigods from the Percy Jackson Series

Who do you think is the most powerful of all the demigods we encounter in the Percy Jackson series?
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.

Through an abundance of facts and details, one can easily detect that Percy Jackson indeed surpasses other demigods. To begin with, let's put him in a match against Jason Grace, who is debated to be the strongest demigod. Percy Jackson easily overpowers Jason in the physical aspect of power. To emphasize this point, Piper even agreed with this statement. In the first book, Percy beats the god of war in sword-to-sword combat.

Furthermore, Percy has the ability to utilize thousands of gallons of water, which can keep him hidden from view. Moreover, if Jason does manage to land a blow on Percy, the effect will be minor as Percy's durability is greater than over 90 percent of all demigods. While Jason is truly powerful, Percy would ultimately triumph.

Moving up the list, we encounter Nico de Angelo, son of Hades. Nico has stated several times that Percy is the most powerful demigod, which in my opinion, already proves that Percy would be the victor in a battle between the two warriors. Thus, Percy is the most powerful demigod in the Percy Jackson series.

2 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

Number 2? He should be number 1. He is just 14 and he literally went to Tartarus alone twice. Also, he can shadow travel anywhere and raise the dead. Why is he number two?

Nico is most definitely the most powerful demigod to exist. I'm pretty sure that if in either of the great wars, if Nico were to side against Percy and the others, the results would most definitely include the end of the world. He is naturally strong-willed, since he did get out of Tartarus alone and never gave up.

In the first series, he managed to convince Hades to join the war, even when Hades threatened to kill him he didn't back down at all, in fact he was willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good. Nico in general had a lot of powers, although he may not have been the best fighter at first but he improved, on his own might I add. Percy and Jason both were trained by someone, however, Nico was self-taught.

Then there's experience to look at. Jason was at camp ever since he was three and Percy, ever since he was twelve. Jason had more experience and Percy had too little. Now look at Nico. He went to camp at the age of ten, he ran away and self-trained and well frankly (no pun included) a normal ten-year-old would've ended up dead or worse, but not Nico. When he figured out he was a son of Hades he immediately felt the need to bring Bianca back.

Then another thing is: Let's face it Nico can take out both Jason AND Percy at the same time if he wanted to. He can shadow travel away from them as defense or summon a skeletal army as a distraction to strike at them from behind or from the shadows. He can also heal minor wounds with shadows, just wanted to put that there. Then there's the fact that he CAN control the earth itself. Not much, but he can to some extent. He can also turn them into ghosts or the easiest way is to just make a surprise attack from a shadow. Thank you and bye because my sister's glaring at me right now.

3 Thalia Grace

Duh. In the Lost Hero, one show of lightning at the campfire exhausted Jason. Thalia does it all the time. If she didn't have her fear of heights, her powers would be even more spectacular. Also, she's versatile. Her mainly known weapon is Aegis, which she uses in a number of ways, yet she can use a spear like a boss, and her archery skills were of that to match a Huntress, seeing as how she was made Lieutenant of Artemis immediately when she joined. She also went head-to-head with Percy. Anyone who can do that has my respect.

4 Jason Grace Jason Grace was the Roman demigod son of Jupiter (Roman God of the Sky) and the late actress Beryl Grace, the younger brother of Thalia Grace (whom Beryl had with Jupiter's Greek form Zeus), the former co-praetor of Camp Jupiter, the Counsellor of Cabin 1 at Camp Half-Blood, the former boyfriend of... read more

Jason is the son of Zeus! He can summon lightning and wind. I think he should be ranked above Thalia and Nico because he's basically on Percy's level.

Okay, Jason Grace is definitely the most powerful character. For starters, he can fly. Sure, Percy can control water, but can he get up into the skies? Jason is also able to bring down lightning. Don't get me wrong, Percy's not bad, but he's not as good as Jason. Jason would've won the battle in Kansas when they were being controlled.

Sure, Percy can control water, but Jason can control the air! Another thing is loyalty and the fight for good. Jason had these character traits. For example, he gave his life so that Apollo, Meg, and Piper could beat the emperors.

Finally, Jason is a mini-me to his father Zeus and Percy is a mini-me to his father, Poseidon. Oh! Last I checked, Zeus was the king of the gods, not Poseidon. Those are all the facts, so as you can see, Jason is much better than Percy.

5 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).

On a dangerous quest to save a Queen goddess, where he was the one who had to take care of the ride, he remembered to bring vegetarian food for his friend. He is a little smaller than the rest, but he used his skill and wit to make the best of the situation.

Instead of wallowing in self-pity, he decided that he couldn't hurt anyone more than a significant other. Since he didn't have one, he decided he was the one who needed to die.

He makes decisions on a whim, but they are surprisingly rational. Anger him, and he will stop at nothing to destroy you (Gaea!). He always keeps his promises, even though he is careful where and when he makes them.

6 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.

First off, I think I should point out that Annabeth doesn't have any special powers, yet she beat other demigods who do have powers. This alone shows a lot. I believe she deserves to be in 3rd place after Nico, or maybe even 2nd behind Percy.

Even though Annabeth would never beat him in hand-to-hand combat, she is very smart and has a great battle strategy. She comes up with all sorts of plans. She faces her worst fear, not telling anyone what it is, not even Percy, and faces it willingly to help save the world. I don't think others would willingly face their worst fear without telling anyone what it is and therefore not getting any support on it. Annabeth is always right. Percy said he had learned a long time ago not to bet against Annabeth.

She knows everything and she is just the best! I'm not saying she is the most powerful, as she doesn't have any special powers, but she is definitely one of the best. If she had any special powers, it wouldn't be fair to anyone, not the gods, not even Gaea. She would be the most powerful, no doubt about it.

Also, she fought away monsters with a hammer for quite some time. She had to be very smart for that to work. This just helps prove that Annabeth is the best and maybe even the most powerful demigod.

7 Frank Zhang

We saw Frank turn into a dragon, so clearly he doesn't just turn into animals, but magical animals! For all we know, he could turn into a hydra or the Nemean Lion. His powers are virtually limitless, especially considering the whole 'swarm of bees' thing. Not one bee, but an entire swarm! Could he become an entire flock of birds, or a whole colony of ants? There's no way to know, I suppose, but I'd say hands down yes.

He could command the skeleton warriors and has superb archery skills. Due to the "blessing" of Mars, he's got huge muscles, and so out-muscles the rest of the whole 7. The stick isn't a weakness, it's proof of just how powerful he is. Juno seriously said that he was so powerful his powers would kill him, and that's why he needed the stick - it becomes his weakness instead of his own strength turning on him.

And it's not even that bad of a weakness, anyway. People overreact about it, especially considering the fact that if it's on him when he transforms, it just disappears with his clothes, and Leo's fireproof pouch. All in all, Frank is definitely the most powerful demigod. Of course, not in a sword fight, because that's not his thing, but combining fighting skill, power, and general awesomeness, he really is the best.

8 Hazel Levesque

She's pretty underrated. Her powers over precious metals can create weapons in almost any situation. She is almost unbeatable underground because of her ability to create and destroy passageways and caverns. She can also manipulate her opponents' weapons as we see from her manipulating Jason's sword. This gives her a great advantage in most settings.

Not to mention her power over the mist. She can literally make it so her opponent doesn't know where they are or what they are doing. Her sword fighting skills are decent, and she can summon Arion at practically any time for a quick getaway.

9 Luke Castellan

He was the best swordsman before Percy, he had the strength to fight back when Kronos took his body, and he was courageous enough to sacrifice himself.

I believe Luke to be the strongest because of a capability that is completely overlooked. His power of thievery. He could steal Hades' crown, Zeus's bolt, Poseidon's trident, Ares' sword, Aphrodite's collar. Literally pick a weapon and it belongs to Luke. Also, he can use all of them with how good he is with weapons.

I would personally say Luke. He is the best fighter by far, and if you compare Percy to him, I think you forgot who taught Percy. Also, he is a good but misguided person, and his powers, which we didn't see much of, are very powerful. I would also say that we have not seen the last of him, even though it seems he is dead.

10 Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano

Are we going for powerful as in a powerful character, or a powerful demigod? Because as a character, Reyna is definitely the most powerful, and just a frickin' badass. It's super cool how her powers are only useful when fighting in a team, and sort of self-sacrificial.

But as a demigod, well, she's one of the best fighters, and even Annabeth said that she wasn't sure whether she could beat Reyna or not. But she could easily be beaten by others with, well, powerful powers.

Why is she so underrated? Even though she got some help from Bellona and Athena, she killed a giant ALONE! One of the reasons she is so powerful is that she never gives up and always stays in the top place wherever she goes. She had a hard time in Puerto Rico, but she stood up again and went to Circe's island, where she became one of Circe's favorite attendants.

And when the pirates turned human again, Reyna fought so well. When she went to New Rome, she became the praetor of the Twelfth Legion. Even though there were not many descriptions of Reyna's past quests, the fact that Reyna is a praetor proves how well she did on her quest.

I am also excited about Reyna being in the Hunters because Reyna may become the lieutenant of the Hunters. (Just a guess, no offense Thalia)

The Contenders
11 Piper McLean Piper McLean is a fictional character created by Rick Riordan in The Heroes of Olympus series. She is one of the Seven of the prophecy and is the daughter of Aphrodite.

Why do people hate her? I am not going to mention everything she did, but she did so many things. Let's not forget that, if it wasn't for her, Jason would have died two times and Percy would have drowned. Leo and Jason (again) would have torn each other to death. Khione would have frozen them all to death.

She had the choice to betray her friends, but she knew she wouldn't. She felt sorrow because she knew she would choose to save the world at the expense of her father, and she still felt guilty for thinking that she might betray her friends.

She is trying her best to prove herself, and she cares about her loved ones a lot. Just because she cares about Jason (her boyfriend) does not mean that she is a bad person. What is that? Is Percy bad just because he cares about Annabeth so much that he chose to fall into Tartarus for her?

This is absurd. Yes, she is beautiful. She is a daughter of Aphrodite. She is emotional. Her biggest strength is her beauty and her power of love, but so what? Since when is beauty considered a bad thing? Since when does beauty mean that a person is stupid or shallow? She is smart because she uses her beauty, her power of love, and her power of words to save the world.

She might not be the strongest demigod, but she is very strong. Heck, she made Gaia go to sleep using her words! How awesome is that?

People should really learn that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, and that not every person can defeat the other by plotting a strategy or by being an outcast.

Rick tried to teach you that you might find people who are different from you, but you failed to understand that.

12 Bianca di Angelo

She is just my biased favorite character. The fact that Hades had a daughter who seemed somewhat mature and ready to make big-girl decisions, oh, and she was an optimistic daughter of a pessimistic god? She rocks. I think with training (and some fanfiction) she would've taken over as Percy's +1, and it would've made for great storytelling.

Bianca di Angelo is the equivalent of Nico and would be in peak form forever if she hadn't died. She is a child of the big three and could be more experienced than anyone, except maybe Thalia.

13 Charles Beckendorf

Think about it, Percy wouldn't be alive if it weren't for this guy. Pretty much no one would. By blowing up that ship of monsters, he saved almost everyone's lives. Sure, some deaths couldn't be prevented, but this guy was a huge hero. Go Charlie!

Stealth ninja genius with an early grave.

What kind of hero blows himself up? Still, he was pretty powerful.

14 Meg McCaffrey

I don't think Meg is the most powerful demigod, but she's up and coming! She has been trained in a sophisticated fighting style, and has the whole plant thing going for her, plus peaches. I think she's an up-and-coming demigod that will show that "hey, Demeter is cool too."

She is definitely one of the strongest. Definitely stronger than Piper. She can fight with swords and has crazy plant powers, and she's only 12.

She will eventually become the most powerful demigod in any series, just wait until she gets older.

15 Magnus Chase

Magnus Chase was a late realization, but his Sumarbrander is unbeatable for any demigod weapon. Give him some time and training and look at the havoc he can cause. He is the Percy Jackson of Norse mythology. He is the most important part of Ragnarok.

So put him in upper tiers and Jason Grace will wet his pants on seeing Magnus' incredible prowess.
By Fredrick Chase

Magnus Chase is an awesome healer. I think he would be higher if he could actually fight by himself.

He is very creative and also builds his friends up.

16 Achilles

This guy was literally called the greatest hero to ever live, which means greater than Hercules, Perseus, Theseus just to name a few. With his blessing of Achilles, no one can harm him unless they know about his heel. Adding his superior battle strategy and skill, he is almost invincible. Plus, you don't get called the greatest hero ever for nothing.

After Hercules, he is the strongest.

17 Will Solace

He is so awesome! He has excellent healing powers and is a natural archer (even though not as skilled as his other half-siblings), a natural musician, and is such a great person! He also has increased athletic skills and audiokinesis and can curse in couplets!

Superb healer and his musical talents!

18 Hercules

Hercules, if we go by the powers of the big three, being the son of Zeus gives him aerokinesis, electrokinesis, and his own immense strength. If we are only following the books, everything Percy has done so far, Hercules has already done and more. It was mentioned that Hercules has a great publicist, meaning the mortals will never forget him and his Greek/Roman counterparts do not cause major personality changes.

If it was a fight between the children of the big three and we removed Hercules' immortality, Hercules would win because of his vast knowledge and skills as a fighter and his immense strength. We can't forget he has beaten Ares, wounded Hera and Hades, wrestled and defeated Thanatos just to name a few, so let's not belittle the lion of Olympus.

19 Samirah al-Abbas

She is Magnus's friend. She should be after Magnus.

20 Ethan Nakamura

If he lived, this kid could have beaten Nico and even Percy. He sacrificed himself and gave Percy an opening to kill Kronos.

I think Ethan could have been a very powerful demigod. But unlucky him, he had an unfortunate past and parentage.

His mom is a stupid person. He's nice. His mom is awful.

Nemesis: I hate all my kids. Hahaha.

Ethan: I hate you. Kills Nemesis.

21 Clarisse La Rue

Clarisse La Rue is the daughter of a war goddess, which makes her skilled in all types of weapons. She has an electric spear, killed a drakon all by herself with no armor on, and was already a powerful expert fighter before Percy even knew he was a demigod. The only reason Percy was able to beat her was because he was strengthened by the water. Clarisse can beat Percy in a sword fight. Change my mind.

I think Clarisse is underestimated, just because she stayed at camp, or bullied Percy. Yes, she is not the BEST person, but she is a GOOD person.

22 Hylla Ramírez-Arellano

Hylla is a very powerful demigod and should be higher on this list.

She is really like her sister. She should be right after Reyna.

This girl could wreck Hazel, Piper, Annabeth, and pretty much about half the people in the top 10.

23 Perseus

As Zeus's first demigod son, he must be more powerful than the rest, and he was the only one in the entire demigod history who had a happy ending until now (Percy and the gang) as a hero. He stopped the kraken and Medusa and he didn't even use his powers as he didn't know about them until his father told him afterward. He is the role model of many heroes, including Percy. So yeah, he has power, but it's unknown. We have to wait for the Greek Heroes book.

24 Silena Beauregard

Why do people hate her? She died a hero. And therefore, we should remember Silena as a hero of Olympus. We couldn't have defeated the Titans without her. Silena should be above.

She was a spy and traitor with a kind heart.

25 Connor Stoll

The best prankster, along with his brother, ever!
