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

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!

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.

3 Apollo

Apollo is just amazing he’s a kind brother to Artemis and is sweet and good looking...He’s cool and kind to Percy and helps him when he needs it I also love his powers like poetry, music, the sun, light and so much more and after I found out about his car now my dream car: a sun chariot

I never would have voted for him until I read the Trials of Apollo. In my opinion after I read something from a certain characters point of view I seem to like them more. His sense of humor was always visible and is a reason of why I voted.

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

4 Artemis

HANDS DOWN SHE’S AMAZING Oh my gosh Artemis is one of my favourite gods/goddesses she’s so strong and loyal she loves and deeply cares for Zoë and all the other hunters I also like her twin brother Apollo so charming and you can always count on Apollo and his sun chariot.

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.

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

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 :]

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.

9 Hermes

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 is absolutely lovely he’s kind to Percy and just wants the best for Luke I have to admit he could have actually been nicer and a better father to Luke but I love Martha and Gorge my favourite snakes! Gorge is always like “Have you brought me a rat? Come on at least a mouse?”

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

10 Athena

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.

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.

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!'

DEMETER SHOULD BE NO. 1 ON THIS LIST! SHE'S MISUNDERSTOOD AND UNDERESTIMATED! NONE OF US COULD SURVIVE WITHOUT HER! (Unless you chose cannibalization, but that's evil)

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!

y e s
s h e t h eb e s t

14 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 him...no wonder she can calm him down...

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

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 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 Tartarus

I think he is stronger than gaea however weaker than nyx and chaos however he is the most cool guy

the body hole is the mouth

24 Chaos

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

help me I hate this god but not as mutch as eros

25 Ouranos
