Top Ten Greek Gods


The Top Ten

1 Poseidon - God of the Sea, Earthquakes and Horses

"i love this god he is so awesome,
I love the sea, horses, and if they don't kill harm or destroy anything I like earthquakes to.

He is the Best as you CAN SAY. I knw that Zeus is the KIng but actually Poseidon was the CHOOSEN KING befoe but just cause He was Loyal to his little brother he gave the throne to Zeus. Hades is laso good as many people think he is bad because they fear DEATH. Zeus is SOMETIMES cruel but Poseidon, I think is the Best. He has his TRIDENT and his name 'Poseidon' means the 'EARTH SHAKER' which means he can cause Violent earthquakes, Volcanoes and also hurricanes and he also has kind of power in the air, He can also cause Tsunami and Violent big Waves. HIs Symbols are the TRIDENT as it is his favourate as well as the one of the strongest weapon ever created in the whole mythology, and his other symbols are also dolphins, horses, sea birds, etc

Although that Cronus ate him, but he is the most powerful because he can shake the earth and create large sea storms, not like zeus with that stupid lightning bolt and not like Hades with a weird helm and keeps hiding in the underworld. Not like Athena with only a brian, not like ares who is hard headed and the easiest to get angry. Not like Hephaestus who only cares about technology, by the way, he is ugly! Lastly, not like Apollo and Artemis who keeps on arguing themselves.

As one of the Big Three, Poseidon has the ultimate powers a god can possess, and is rivaled only by his brothers, Zeus and Hades.
Hydrokinesis: As the Lord of the Sea, Poseidon has absolute control over water like Percy, only to a much greater extent.

He can withstand any amount of water pressure.
He can generate water from his body.
He can use sea waves as a form of teleportation.
He can breath underwater.
Geokinesis: Being the god of earthquakes, Poseidon has the ability to cause earthquakes, giving him the nickname "the Earthshaker"
Aerokinesis: Poseidon is also known as the god of storms since he controls the weather over the seas. He can create thunderstorms and even hurricanes. However, he can also create clear skies for sailors if he wants. As god of the seas, it is unknown how far this power may extend over land.

2 Zeus - God of the Sky and Thunder

Zeus of Course. How Can Poseidon Be above him There Must Be a Mistake in the Hellonic Mythologicle Meta series Zeus has attained the highest feats in the entire body of myths. He has an/Universe destroying thunder bolt he is more powerful than all the other gods combine he controlls the cosmic sphere known as the sky which houses the universe and in orphic tradition the Entire multiverse He ate Phanes and now can controll all Time and space with any time line he was the ancient greeks pinacle Henotheistic God

This should be 1!

he's king of gods! almost got killed once because of Typhon!. but he won the battle anyways! And I love poseidon too but I couldn't make up my mind! And hades OMG! You guys are devil worshippers with all your guns and violence!

Zeus is important because he is the king of the gods. According to Greek myth, Zeus was the god of the sky, and many ancient Greeks thought Zeus could control natural phenomena, such as controlling the weather and throwing lightning bolts at his enemies. Zeus is the leader of the gods, but he did not attain this position because he was more powerful than Poseidon. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades drew lots to decide who would be the new ruler after defeating the Titans and Cronus. People say Poseidon is the best only because of the Percy Jackson series.

3 Athena - Goddess of Wisdom

Athena is the best god she should be at least number four, she is the goddess art, skill, technology, war, battle, and so many more. She is also the favorite daughter of Zeus even though he swallowed his first original wife, Metis in a whole piece because it said a child from Metis would be smarter than him, Zeus

She is obviously a very intelligent and well rounded woman. She is the goddess of crafts and was the one to tame horses despite Poseidon creating them. She also created the Aegis, a powerful weapon that even Zeus likes to use. Also, she is the only one Zeus trusts to use his lightning bolts. She was the only god/goddess not to run away from Typhon and guided Odysseus home despite Poseidon's wrath. She is also the goddess of wisdom, strategy and war fare.

She overcomes all the other Gods. She was the only one on Odysseus's side, and with her help he could beat any god or beast that came his way. I mean, without wisdom, what's the use of all those other powers anyways?

She is so good and she beat the position of "god of war" from Poseidon.

4 Hades - God of the Underworld

Ok, where do I even start...
Hades is good, ok? Why do people think he's evil? He may be the God of death, but just think. If he wasn't alive, where would people go when they died? See my point? Good. If not, here's a summary of what I just said. HADES. IS. NOT. EVIL. GET USED TO IT!

Whew! So, you get the idea. Hades isn't evil. Ok, ok, I'll stop saying that. But, in case you didn't know, here's a little story. Once upon a time, a long time ago in Greek mythology, there was a Titan King named Kronos. One day, he had children. Zeus, Posieden, and Hades. "Hey," said Zeus one day. "We should lead a rebellion against our father so we can become the Kings! " "Great idea," said Posieden. "Ooh, I can't wait! " Exclaimed Hades. So it happened. A war, God vs Titian. Well, they all played their part in overthrowing their father. Hades was clever. He snuck past Kronos's armies to destroy Kronos's weapons. After the battle, which the gods won, ...more

He is the best god... With his helm of darkness... Plus he ruled the dead do that just makes him awesome... Next thing he has various people such as Charon working for him

Hades is the best god like you said he can wipe all god and titans. I think that he is the best first, is because even though he is in the underworld and can never go up to the overworld he can still control spirits and kill other gods. The second reason why is because he does not wipe out all the gods and titans. He takes pity on them and does not. In conclution I belive that Hades is the best god even better than Poseidon and Zeus and should be first.

You have admit that Hades is pretty strong for a brother of Zeus and Poseidon he could send his hell hound to attack but ha is pretty strong

5 Apollo - God of Light and the Sun

I am doing research on Apollo and I came here to see him as 5th on list. I mean come on he is so deadly with a bow and arrow on the battlefield.

I think apollo is the best god he was the one god who controls where the sun goes and when it sets he is awesome!

He is also the god of music. That is the main reason that I voted for him in the first place. The god of the sun is also interesting as well.

Apollo is the most beloved god of them all

6 Ares - God of War

He puts swords in his shoulders because he doesn't have room for them on his belt!

We was a jerk in Percy Jackson though

He is the best because for sparta.

He made everybody in his family mad & so Poseidon crashes waves on the beaches to remind him to behave. He is the god of war

7 Artemis - Goddess of the Hunt, Forests and Hills, the Moon

OK, First of all I am just going to say why at the time I am writing this is Artemis 7 when Apollo is 5!?! I mean, Artemis helped GIVE BIRTH to Apollo. Plus, Apollo is shy and her arrows kill painlessly and swiftly while his cause sickness. If you have an antidote he can hardly do anything. So Artemis should AT LEAST be ahead of Apollo. Plus in case you haven't noticed right now the top 5 are ALL men. SO if that is a reason that is wrong. Plus she is like the goddess of the moon which makes night like her realm. (Also her brother Apollo is driving that Sun Chariot all day and can't enjoy his part of the day, so Artemis would be like, "sorry bro you can't enjoy the night.") She is Goddess of the hunt and for everyone who voted for Nemesis, change your vote to Artemis because if you know about Actaceon then you know she got total revenge on him for looking at her naked body and he became a stag and was chased by his own hunting dogs. So she has revenge. She is a very fierce fighter and ...more

I took a test 5 times just to be sure and most of the time I got Artemis for my greek god parent and she is a very good god because she is out in the wilderness looking for more adventures and unlike Apollo is so vane sometimes and

Artemis was ahead of her time. She knew that womyn do not need to look up to a male figure. Although she was the goddess of the hunt, she made sure to protect all animals as equal.

You can NOT beat Artemis!
She is one of the reasons us girls are not shadowed by men!

8 Hephaestus - God of Technology, Blacksmiths, Craftsmen, Artisans and Volcanoes Fire

Because he is the coolest god out of all of them

Hephaestus is the best god, he is strong and silent, but also nicer than many other gods. He has created so many great inventions and made the world's first woman!

He is my dad.

hephaestus is imense. He can make any thing and could blow up your school and teaches. So vote the god of blacksmiths

9 Aphrodite - Goddess of Love, Lust and Beauty

Give me the instagram account

Because she is the goddess of love

She is so glam fair and kind and clever. I wish I could have her power. she even turned a statue into a real person so one of her followers could have someone to marry. she deserves to be top god cause Zeus is so grumpy and everyone loves her.

As a heterosexual male I cannot imagine voting for anyone else.

10 Hermes - Messenger of the gods, god of commerce, thieves, travelers, sports, and border crossings

Hermes moves so fast he would be across the universe before you even begin to blink, if you try to fight this guy it's game over, he delivers billions of punches on you in seconds. He is pretty much the Flash made into a Greek God. He could pretty much defeat every god before they even know he is taking down their relatives. He moves between dimensions, as he has been in the underworld and Olympus as well. Just got a check for a million dollars? No you didn't cause Hermes just ran by and made it his. Nobody stands a chance against a dimension jumping, super speed, theif, juggernaut, god.

Hermes is a greek mythological god and is the god of commerce, thievery and travel. He is the fastest of all Gods. Hermes also has rescued Ares.

Hermes has the best stories, is so fast, a trickster and is the best>

This guy is beast!


The Contenders

11 Hera - Goddess of Women and Marriage

I hate Hera she needs a "Perfect Family" she threw Hephaestus of Olympus.

Hera just gave me a blowjob last night!

Sure, Hera may hay outdated family principles, but as do most gods and goddesses. And do NOT tell me you wouldn't hate the kids of your husband's ex-lovers. Maybe you wouldn't try to kill them, but it's so easy for a goddess to kill people. It's so easy to give in to temptation when you can control the world. Being the queen of godesses is pretty bad ass to me.

Hera's cool, but is a jerk to all of Zeus' kids. Like, it's not their fault!

12 Helios - God of the Sun

I think he's cool

He is way better than apollo and ares by far

Best god he is in charge of the sun

Helios is the man

13 Cronus - God of Time

Looks like Spartan.But overall he looks epic.

he awesome

Cronus was not a god, he was a Titan, father of Zeus and other Olympians dimwits...

He could stop time and all his enemies would freeze so he could pick them of with ease.

14 Dionysus - God of Wine, Theatre and Ecstasy

This dude rocks

I get drunk because of him

Why the heck is There a god of wine

I'm kind of pissed off that everyone is judging him based on the Percy Jackson series. Like really. He can turn coke into fanta? That's ridiculous modern stuff. The Ancient Greek Gods are ANCIENT.

15 Demeter - Goddess of Crops and Fruit

Demeter was never unkind unless you deserved it and if she did punish you she ALWAYS gave you a chance to go. Demeter is a creater. While Athena was fighting with Poseidon destroying cities, Demeter gave birth to life and gave us people food. DEMETER DESERVES TO BE UP THERE! IT IS A DISGRACE TO SEE THE OTHER GODDESSES UP THERE! Demeter was the nicest goddess, she made a prince a god because his family and him tried to help Demeter. The other kind goddess was Hestia but she isn't even up there. WHO ARE YOU MEAN PEOPLE!

She's the only one that didn't have a huge ego, even Athena had her jerk moments, but Demeter is always kind. - LukeTargaryen

It's a real shame she isn't in the top 10, she's the kindest of the gods and didn't have the fragile ego of the others.

Guys, she is the eldest goddess that still has a throne. She is the goddess of nature, the earth, seasons, agriculture and harvest. She could defeat the other godsin a thousand ways without even blinking, she could(ready for this) starve them, strangle them with vines, send them to the core of the earth, bury them and suffocate them, she could poison them with plants, slice them up with her golden swords and scythe, she could roast them with her dragons, send animals to destroy, and so much more! She is MUCH more powerful than people think.

16 Nike - Goddess of Victory

Can Nike get me some shoes please?

Just saying, if you're going to vote for Nike, you should probably vote for Athena instead (just my opinion), because Athena is Nike's best friend and Nike follows her everywhere. Then you can have a powerful goddess and victory on your side for the price of one. Also, Nike, the shoe brand has her name not because she's the goddess of shoes (I honestly can see why people might think that) but because they want people to think their shoes will help you win and perform better- winning=victory=Nike.

What's better then having the goddess of victory on your side? I wouldn't make her angry otherwise in a fight... Oh oh!

I mean how can you win against victory and success. Come on how can you seriously argue. HOW DO YOU BEAT THE GOD OF WINNING?!

17 Persephone - Goddess of Vegetation

She was a young goddess - no more than the nymphs she used to hang out with. Then, Hades married her and she expertly stepped up to being the queen and part ruler of the underworld!

She is both the daughter of the goddess of life and married the god of death

My name is Persephone so...PERSEPHONE FOR LIFE.

Persephone is one of my favorite goddess

18 Nyx - Goddess of the Night

Nyx is the goddess of the night, which is one of the reasons I voted for her. Night is my favourite domain, so that's why I voted for Nyx(and Artemis.) She's also really pretty and she's a primordial goddess, so she's pretty strong. She was old before the titans were infants. Technically, she isn't the goddess of night. She is night. So, she's pretty bad ass. Period.

I love dark peps

I love her she is so awesome and cool she is also interesting and so pretty

Sh is really beautiful!

19 Nemesis - Goddess of Revenge

Nemesis is not about anger or hate, she is about justice! - rankist

Nemesis is revenge baby who doesn't like revenge

Even though she is a revenge goddess, I love her. I want to be like her. GO NEMESIS!

I Always get my revenge on other people

20 Pan - God of Nature, the Wild, Shepherds, Flocks, Goats, of Mountain Wilds

He could pul anything (if he wants to )
under ground with WEEDS he can put fear in any one with 1 scream he can make peace with his pan pipes

The great god of nature

Uglee but cool boi

He should be in the top 15

21 Perseus - Son of Zeus

Perseus is a hero he should be 8th most powerful Greek god.

He killed ares

Perseus is a demigod not a god.

Perseus is not a god he is a demigod (a son of Zeus) and the guy who killed Medusa.

22 Hecate - Goddess of Magic and Witchcraft

Personally I think she's the most powerful one
As she was the goddess of so many things: magic, necromancy, ghosts, witchcraft, moon, night, mist, crossroads, poisonous plants and poison
And she had the power of a titan and a god and "Poseidon ", "Zeus"and"hades" that u always put on the top of their popularity gave her power over their realms (sky, sea, underworld "

The magic goddess, super cool - blackflower

How could anyone skip Hecate? She is the most interesting out of all Greek deities. She is goddess of necromancy and magic. She has also been described as the Greek Goddess of crossroads; a truly iconic occult figure who bears torches to help illuminate the shadows. She helped in locating Persopheone when she had been lost to the underworld. Her origins might even be far more ancient than that of the other gods and older than some titans as well.

She should be #1! She can cast magic! If she went against Zeus or Poseidon or any other "powerful" one, she could block all their attacks and then cast a spell on them and turn them into a pig or something small and helpless like that.

23 Gaia - Goddess of the Earth

I'm not being byist because the heroes of Olympus series but seariosly the literal earth! she could pull my Olympus into the ground

No earth no nothing

Come on guys. The only reason all the gods exist is because of this god. She has the power to create and destroy worlds. She is Zeus' grandmother. She is as pretty as everk, and strong she has it all! 10/10

This first comment is rubbish. Chaos is the grand dad of her much stronger

24 Notch - God of Minecraft

Best god ever.

The story writers usually leave out the fact that notch was the supreme leader of the cosmos and that the evil olympians turned the world from square to circle and banished him to humanity


"Mining away, I don't know what, to mine but I'll mine this anyway, in this Minecraft Day"

Earth used to have sister planet, but notch took it and turned into a cube for minecraft- the updates are just the inhabitants evolving

25 Thanatos - God of Death

Thanatos is king

Thanatos is the god of death and death trumps everything but life. So theoretically death is like, the second stronegst god. Just because zues if the dad of gods doesn't mean he can't be killed. Death can only be defeated if it is turned to life so he can only be defeated by the god of life. Death begets death begets death. GOD OF DEATH RULES!

Not a god it is a titan

He good

26 Eros - God of Love

My cat is named Eros and he is always cuddling with me and giving me kisses

My name is Eros so there is that I guess

Eros or his other name Cupid is still today worldwide considered the symbol of love

Eros and Psyche! Love them!

27 Hercules

Hercules is overrated to be honest but he is still good but he is a weak God compared to ares Hermes and any around that area he wouldn't even stand a chance against any gods he should just stay a hero

Sure he is over rated but he rules, come on, look at those twelve labors he did, and what painful death he had before rising into the gods! Now for my cons, he is a freaky guy, I mean, look at all the people in the underworld because of him! But he is caring, he save Theseus. If you don't know about that, at the end of Theseus' life, he was very foolish. He and his gang went out to find new wives for themselves. He got Helen of Troy, while his friend wanted Persephone! He was frozen to the spot with his friend but was saved by Hercules!

3 words BIG AS CRAP, complete awesome and Zeus loving son the amazing Hercules

A demigod don't worship

28 Lycaon - The Wolf King

I like wolves

It a pokemon

The first werewolf- what's not bad-ass about this guy?

Wolves are awesome and he created them whats not to love

29 Amphitrite - Goddess of the Sea

She is awesome

I think she is the best Greek goddess

30 Rhea - Mother of Zeus

I don't know very much about greek gods and stuff like that but if she is the mother of zeus wouldn't she be the mother of all gods since cronos is the father of all gods

She is mother of all gods and goddesses!

She is the father of Zeus! And isn't Zeus the most powerful god?

Zeus Married his sister"True fact"

31 Andromeda - The Wife of Perseus
32 Kratos - Personification of Authority

Sans thanos

He is now god of war. NO GOD can beat him even THOR

It sucks lolololololololololololol NOOBS I'm 9 by the way

33 Eos - Goddess of Dawn

The dawn holds the beautiful rising sun

The dawn means the new day is here what is not to love

You guys can't forget about this dude. He's a flying baby with love arrows.

I have a crush on him

34 Morpheus - God of Dreams and Shapeshifting

He could literally just turn into Zeus or another powerful god and then he would just have their powers. And he literally too out a whole city just by walking around.


I think he is awesome since he can turn into anything. I mean really why would you want an army when you can turn into a dragon. Also he can turn anyone to sleep which is really handy

Why don't you like him? He could literally be anything!

35 Hypnos - God of Sleep

Penis funny olololoololololol I am 9 by the way

Like a funny bonus god who doesn't matter. I wish I was him so I could make myself go to sleep.

Who doesn't like sleep. Your website was horrific!

I love to sleep.

36 Thalia - Goddess of Comedy

This is a dam great option.

38 Aether - God of Light

Well, He seems cool. Also you forgot Hestia. c:

He is the wind

He is the life force of everything in the universe and the personification of the heavans

Light beats darkness anyday

39 Boreas - God of the North wind

How come everybody hates this guy because he sided with the Giants in heroes of Olympus, but you should be blaming khione(who was the one who made him do it). And another thing, HOW THE HECK IS DIONYSUS (the god of drinks) HIGHER ON THIS LIST THAN THE gOD OF ICE AND SNOW, boreas is way more powerful than people think.

Boreas is by God of the North Fuji. I compare this god Boreas offer Boreas of serial Xena: Warrior Princess. In Xena, 4 season, 1 and 2 Episode his Boreas, stay big power fighter, friend Xena. Boreas, God North Fuji discover of many episodes Xena, and he is me great power.

42 Erebus - Personification of Darkness

Th prime evil god of darkness and shadows. This god was suppose ably offspring of chaos. I recommend researching more about this god, he's powerful enough to take chaos, zues and many more gods down.
"This god is worthy of your time and a part of life itself. He is connected to all gods as he watches over them observing their might, always keeping many steps ahead from the others"

I just love him, his name sounds so..unique, and he is literally the God of Shadows technically. Plus he is the supposed offspring of chaos...CHAOS!

43 Asclepius - God of Medicine and Healing
