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

He was a good father to his children. He was also quite loyal to his wife. I say quite because he still on occasion would stray and have demigod children.

Yes he is dark but that is understandable due to him being the god of the underworld. Judge of the Dead. So on and so on.

He needs More respect from his siblings and for people in general to understand his position.

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.

Hades is actually a great god, just...misunderstood. I mean, you would be sad/mad/grumpy if your siblings shut you out and sometimes forgot completely about you while playing with each other. Sure, he may be a bit bad towards Nico at first, but soon realized he's a good kid. Hades is a nice god, nice and misunderstood.

Hands down, Hades is my favorite god. The fact that he named his dog Spot is good enough for me. Don't believe me? Look it up. Seriously though, he's loyal and a good father, despite what people think.

2 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.

Of course I picked him! He's the father of the main character of the whole series! I really wish that he would've gotten to spend more time with him though.

I like his laid back attitude. You also have to admit that he could be the strongest of the three brothers due to him having control over the oceans which cover 2/3rds of the world.

sign is my favorite card I also took a test to see if I was the child of a Greek god and said if I was I would be the child of Poseidon he's super cool and he's also Percy's dad so he deserves to be first place not second

3 Apollo

Apollo's sense of humour is absolutely amaze. He is funny, and is kinder to mortals than most gods. I mean, he can be arrogant, but that makes him sorta more likeable in the trials of Apollo. Not to mention he is one of the only gods to help mortals in their quest.

I don't want to spoil it if you haven't, but you MUST read trials of Apollo. His character is explained much. although we have nothing in common, and I don't have a favorite, I LOVE APOLLO

I like seeing Apollo improve and change a lot in the trials of Apollo. He would be the best god if he returns to be a god.

Apollo made me laugh through all the seriousness happening in the Titan's Curse. He was like a breath of fresh air...

4 Artemis

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.

She has always been my all time favorite goddess. Would join her hunt in an instant if I could.

Yo the god of the moon love her and zoe best I love the titans curse so much

5 Hestia

#underappreciated so r we just going to ignore the fact that tlos title is literally HER? "the last olympian"? yea.. also she literally gave up her seat on OLYMPUS for a drunk and crazy god what-
and like 1 person chose to talk to her every century (as I rmbr it) while she was tending the fires at chb and yet her kindness is so genuine it flows below everything she does it is her motivation and it just makes me-

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.

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.

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 Dionysus

Dionysus "accidentally" got Percy's name wrong 100 times

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

Doinusus is the kind dude!

the wine dude likes Peter Johnson very much!

7 Aphrodite

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

Yes She is my favorite goddess/god

8 Ares

How is ares not number 1 he's my dad and by half brother is frank he can turn into animas

Kinda evil, but whatever

He is a war god.

kick him off this list

9 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

Who doesn't love him and his two snakes (I absolutely adore George and Martha)?

He honestly care deeply about his children. He is the best

10 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.

No matter what she will always be my most favourite god/goddess. She only threatened Percy because she cares about Annabeth and the world.

This Goddess has both beauty, brains, and strength. I would consider her one of the smartest gods out there.

If I was in percy jackson I would be son of athena

The Contenders
11 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‘s way too underestimated

'mother, can we not talk about cereal?' 'no! eat your cereal!'


12 Hephaestus

If hephaetus is reading this from his forge please make me a superedpowered gaming console

Come on guys every body else steals the spotlight from Hephaestus ( not that he usually minds) but he's really cool still and may I remind you that he is the father of Leo Valdez himself

he's like he's leos Valdez father!

Come on guys! He is LEO's DAD! He should NOT be under 10! Donnot understimate him because he is a GENIUS!

13 Iris

She was funny

My name is Iris!And from what the story’s description said I look like her

she my mum so how could I not like her plus shes cool and her powers are cool!

s h e t h eb e s t

14 Persephone

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

She wasn't in the books much, but when she was, she was good

Beautiful so sweet.

15 Hecate

She helped Hazel a lot. Hecate probably helped the seven demigods more than anything else

She seems really kind and is willing to help Hazel with the Mist and in The Son Of Magic is important

her power is so cool

16 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.

He just makes me cry he's so perfect I can't

Eros for the win

17 Khione

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

are you sure this character isn't from Frozen ll?

18 Nyx

the BEST she nearly killed percy and I love her palace, the is the daugther of chaos

19 Medusa

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

She's not a goddess Stupid!

Medusa's not a god...

Is she even a God?

20 Amphitrite
21 Nike

She's strong but a little crazy.

She was pretty cool and funny

She is so funny!

22 Gaea

Da most powerful of them all

23 Ouranos
24 Chaos

WOW the creator of all things and the most powerful thing even more than gaea and tartarus

25 Aeolus

Yo, river God...Your horn of plenty's with Piper.
