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

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!

Best God ever. God of all gods, god of the sky, lightning, thunder. Anything you see when you look up, when your outside.

He's a great overall god and that god everyone in Greece looked up... probably 2nd best to Poseidon though

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.

Well, you got to like Athena, right? Or else she'll blast you to ashes. Or an owl. She'll turn you into an owl. Yeah, that sounds right.

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?

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

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

Everyone always tries to make Hades the bad buy because he's the god of the underworld. He didn't get to choose his position like the others! As part of mythology, it is left up to people to write stories and others to read them. They never get to speak up for themselves so gods like Hades are left to be the antagonists

5 Apollo - God of Light and the Sun

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 a god that I love most. Yes, he did screw up some times but who cares? Everybody makes mistakes. He is also the only one who got his powers taken away from him but still survives and that proves that he is strong and can live up to challenges. Go APOLLO!

I'm sorry if I am just judging him from The Trials of Apollo, but Apollo rocks. I know what he did in the Trials of Apollo may not be actual Greek mythology, but...YES APOLLO.

Apollo is God of Light. And he is the Lord of Stringed Instrumental Performance because he could play the LYRE like no other.

6 Ares - God of War

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

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

Ares is god in great power, good part to Ares in serial Xena and Hercules, Ares is attack style, grey costume. Master magy and fighter in weapon zord.

Easy decision in terms of being a best god. Ares favored the underdogs of the Trojan war unlike the rest of the gods, and while Athena was a much better strategist, and was on the winning side, Ares on his own was unbeatable in hand to hand combat. He was a bloodthirsty savage when fighting and was easily angered, but he wasn't dumb by any means. He is considered to be a picture perfect soldier and was worshipped by the Spartans, the most skilled soldiers in history. I don't know why poseidon has so many votes, he just hides with the fish while Ares is battling for days at a time.

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

Cool headed when not around males I still like her Roman aspect more
Rough around the edges
Good tracking skills
Archery second only to her brother Apollo
The moon is essential
And can be used with dream work

Artemis is Zeus's little darling who is the most accurate with ranged weapons.

Artemis is kind, strong, and the leader of the huntresses. She is the best!

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

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 could make a whole army of automatons and then destroy any other god. He trapped 2 gods under 1 net with his skills.

He's really smart and I don't care if he's ugly and crippled. He's forgiving and kind and that's really uncommon in high power

I dunno he's fun at metalwork and he also gave his adoptive mom a cut necklace. 6/10

9 Aphrodite - Goddess of Love, Lust and Beauty

Aphrodite is always floating on a faint lavender/saffron cloud in a bright magenta gown wearing a green sash.

Shes beautiful. She beat a SPIDER THING in the web contest. I think she deserves spot 2.

Come on! She should at least be in top ten! Even though she might not have powers that are like ESSENTIAL to your life but everyone wants beauty. And tons of people love lust and beauty... So

Sexy on every picture Plus I love Love, Lust and Beauty. Who doesn't

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 the fastest, most elusive God. He can find anything at all and travel to that location faster than superman.

He's an underused character and everyone always makes him out to be a joke. Rick Riordan just made him seem like a boring lazy dad

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.

The Contenders

11 Hera - Goddess of Women and Marriage

Hera is left handed. Five percent of women are left handed while fifteen percent of men are lefthanded. Need I say more. Hera will defeat Hercules in single combat one day.

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

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 Cronus - God of Time

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.

Cronus not a god but still if zeus lost his master bolt he would have no power over any one but cronus is so strong he could kill zeus then take is right ful place has king of the gods and the titans so that's why cronus is the strongest

He's a titan but he's the best all the gods had to team up to defeat him

13 Helios - God of the Sun

Helios is awesome even though he is a titan
Plus son of hyperion
And one of the few good titans

He is so fit he has blonde hair and blue eyes. He is always smiling and how cool is it to be able to change the weather and mess with the elements so cool

Helios is amazing! he can kill any god with the power of the sun he can blind them and then set them on fire the only reason he died in god of war was because he was wounded and he couldn't stand up helios is AMAZING

Best god he is in charge of the sun

14 Dionysus - God of Wine, Theatre and Ecstasy

welcome to party city, where women get to rip their own sons into shreds while high off their minds. also he's a god of gnc people and I think that's very sexy of him 10/10

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.

He can change any drink or liquid o another drink or liquid! How cool. He can turn coke into fanta! ( I hate coke and love fanta)

The god of ecstasy and wine, what else matters?

15 Demeter - Goddess of Crops and Fruit

She should definitely be higher! She is responsible for the fruit and vegetables you eat! And if you really think about it, she is the reason behind greek myths. We would never have records of them without paper, which comes from trees

If we didn't have her, we would surely have starved! She should totally be in the top five at least.

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!

Demeter (Ceres in Roman version), sure knows how kick yo' butt! She rescued her beloved daughter Persephone from the grasp of that creep Hades. During her quest to find her daughter she came across a king and queen (by that time Demeter morphed into an old woman). The kind couple saw how worn out Old lady Demeter was and took care of her for a couple of days.
The queen had a baby son, and Old lady Demeter offered to mind him for the queen (even Queens need breaks), and placed him in the fire (don't worry, this didn't hurt the child as Demeter used her magical powers to make sure the fire didn't burn through the boy). Her method was that because the King and Queen showed her great hospitality, she decided to repay them by making their baby son grow up to be a powerful hero.

16 Persephone - Goddess of Vegetation

She actually had significant power in the Underworld and made some very important decisions.

Persephone is the Queen of the Dead and Lady of the Seasons because she is Demeter and Zeus's daughter, the former being responsible of growth of grain and primitive law giving..

I literally love her, like who wouldn't? Also I feel bad for her cause that dude Apollo

Oh just see how beautiful she is ruling the underworld. Perfect match for hades. Love her

17 Thanatos - God of Death

death should at least be top 12 cause death keeps all the monsters without death Olympus would be gone

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!

He's the ancient grim reaper. Jades might rule the after life, but where do you think he owes credit too? For creating death

Just what I thought the power of death is a powerful and strongest ability but I also agree with time god time is also a powerful and strongest ability.

18 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 "

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.

" Hecate is easily the best, cause she is THE TITANESS/GODDESS OF MAGIC! Sure, she was a Titan, but if there is no Hecate, who controls magic? She is kind ( alright, sometimes ). She helped Demeter find Persephone, and she works with Hades, as she is also the Titaness of ghosts. Get rid of Hera, and make Hecate the Queen of the Gods/Titans!

19 Nyx - Goddess of the Night

I love night its beautiful so she must be too. I've always imageined her with galexy hair. and if I could draw I would draw her

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.

She's awesome you should research her she's so interesting

She was one of the first and I love our children

20 Nemesis - Goddess of Revenge

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!

Well I guess if vote the goddess of victory you’ll have to vote the goddess of revenge

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

21 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

Pan is great god to force, and mutant to people and goat foot, devil fire body, big tail and Pan is great power.

You can't not like pan. He is probably the coolest non human looking god

Pan imagine a world without him. No animals none of them are unique but Pan he is what makes every single animal unique to us from dogs, to cats, to sea creatures we don't now exist all come from Pan God of nature.

22 Hestia - Goddess of the Hearth, Architecture, and the Right Ordering of Domesticity, the Family and the State

Why is she all the way down here? She is one of the most famous goddesses!

She is one of the most important greek gods, she keeps the balance of all homes and kept the Greek gods from wars

She is the goddess of your home, your family, and architecture. If she so chose to, though it is unlikely, she could either crumble your home or make the architecture you are standing under fall apart on top of you. She could possibly rearrange your family. She also has some power over Poseidon and Apollo, past suitors before her oath of virginity. Poseidon being the most ranked powerful god on this site, definitely is a little intimidating. Apollo being the sun god and riding the sun chariot, he could refuse to ride out at sunset and cause us to die, just because he is asked by hesitation, if she was angry or spiteful for some reason. Hestia being the kindest goddess has earned the trust and probably some favors from the rest of them.

Hestia is the kindest goddess. She is awesome, and I love her story, She's also technically one of the big 12, but gave up her set to dionysus.

23 Nike - Goddess of Victory

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.

So weird. Nike is a company name, also a god? weird. Victory? Thought it was the Goddess of sports. Lol. Should have known it is a goddess before my whole wardrobe is full of Nike sports things.

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

Victory’s cool
Ever watched the movie Spider-Man into the spider verse?
Well I love it
Especially the soundtrack

Evil will never prevail, suckers
What is real will never fail to prosper
Came from the ground to the top, helicopter
I go hard just like the shell of a lobster

-ski mask the slump god and JacqueEs
Save the day

24 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

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

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

Gaia is just awesome. Sorry, but she is the grandmother of Zeus, the Ultimate Goddess, the wife of Ouranos and Mother Earth! How can you beat that? Oh sure, Heroes of Olympus pass her off as a villain but she's still really cool. She's the mother of Cronos! You can't sideline that. She bore the Lord of Time! Come on!

25 Eros - God of Love

He was separated from Psyche and he deserves to be loved the way he lets others be.

Oof I love Eros and Thanatos both so much voted for eros cause he's lower they shuld be ties at #1

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

Everybody in the mythology is scared of Eros even the gods because he can shoot you with one of his arrows and you could fall in love with ANYONE or ANYTHING.
