Top Ten Heroes of Olympus Characters


The Top Ten

1 Percy Jackson Percy Jackson Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a fictional character, the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

Throughout everything, no matter what. Percy will always be #1. Why do you think Riordan gives him a perspective in every book he's in?

Percy has a certain way of pulling people in and keeping them there for the ride. He has inspired me in many ways. Through out this series and the Percy Jackson series he has made the books very enjoyable.

Percy is pretty cool because he's really silly but he's still the ultimate hero. But he's just as good as the others, so just because he's the main character in the first series he gets way too much credit. Not saying he isn't awesome but the other characters are awesome too!

Percy is the best by far

2 Leo Valdez Leo Valdez Leo Valdez is a 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, and has the ability to create and manipulate fire (pyrokinesis).

So it was just sad. Leo's past was sad, and his whole "seventh-wheel" and "no girlfriends until the end but then in the end he died" thing was just sad. I ship him with Hazel since they were incredibly connected, and... how can I explain it? It was just complicated... nobody's past was as sad as his (even Nico's), and he wears a mask of laughter to hide his pain. He was hilarious, but that was just one side of him he created to hide his true feelings, and that was what made me love Leo. Just think of it. He was the only character that (Hazel doesn't count, she's a daughter of Hades... and she ends up in Elysium) ACTUALLY died and caused ACTUAL grief among a lot of people. You know, only Sammy mourned about Hazel death? I'm sure I'm gonna lose my appetite for weeks about Leo's death... a loss of an excellent character! But thankfully he revived

Let's be honest... most people ( not all, so please don't get mad) kept reading the Lost Hero... Because of Leo. Don't get me wrong I love all the characters but all the other characters spend too much time talking about their love life two of the couples depend on each other WAY too much. Leo... Well Leo didn't have a girlfriend ( until maybe the very last book) so what's the point of exagerating his love life. - AnnaOfArendelle332

Leo is the best of you ask me! I don't know why, maybe because he reminds me of myself but I don't know. He doesn't get a girlfriend till the last book so I feel like he is more relative to people because not everyone has a girl or boyfriend. I love how he is always making jokes, he is just so amazing. Go team Leo!

If you don’t pick Leo, you’re going to Tartarus. He’s funny, smart and not hooked up in a dam love life. I don’t dislike love stories, but I prefer hearing about dumb adventures involving home-made flash-bang grenades and chicken-nugget smoke screens. He’s super smart (just as smart as Annabeth in my opinion) and if you’re going to look me in the eye and TELL ME YOU WERE HAPPY THAT LEO’S MUM DIED then I’m personally going to escort you to the Fields of Punishment. He’s my favourite fictional character EVER, and although I may just seem like another insane Team Leo fangirl (which I am) I truly think he is the best.

3 Nico di Angelo 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 Trails 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 more.

Nico had a really hard past and you can't help but just feel sorry for him. His hard past is what makes me love his character so much. Without him the quest to bring the Athena Parthenos to camp would have failed many times over. I am very happy that he finally got a happy ending. I totally ship Solangelo! All of this started when Bianca died. Then he never thought he would have a place to call home anymore. Then when he went to find the Doors of Death he was captured. But the part that shook me the most was in the House of Hades, when he had to confess his feeling that he had a crush on Percy. This was probably the bravest thing anyone has done because the time Nico is from looks down upon being gay. I may have freaked out when at the end of The Blood of Olympus when I it said Nico was staying at Camp Half-Blood. Then when I was reading The Hidden Oracle and found out Solangelo was canon I fell off my bed. Don't judge. I was happy. And I am a huge fan girl. I take this fandom WAY to ...more

I simply love Nico. He is so full of emotions, pain, sorrow, and, despite this, he is an important presence for the Seven with his powers and his love too throughout the whole series. He can fight everything and he always exits from every single battle - with monster or with feelings - a little bit weakened, a little bit more broken, but still there, with his grin, his tears and a lot of problems he never asked for but anyway has to deal with. Besides, even if I didn't know him, I would love him only for saying that "those who are heartless, once cared too much". A sentence which means a lot to me. If I were a character in any book, I would probably have the way of thinking of Annabeth - curious, smart, a bit brave too - but totally the heart of Nico.

Dude in the first series I thought he was an interesting/complex character, one of my faves, and then Heroes of Olympus came along and added like 5 new dimensions to him and all of a sudden I'm like Nico you are so cool. So dark and confused and depressed, but so cool.

4 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase

Annabeth is such a strong character. All the rest of the seven have supernatural abilities (e.g. flying, charmspeak, shapeshifting) whereas she only has her brains. Yet I feel she is the strongest out of all of them because she uses common sense and logic to win battles, and she outsmarts the enemy rather than beating them in a battle of physical strength. For this she can be underestimated, but she always manages to come out on top. Annabeth is a highly determined and ambitious character, and she will stop at nothing to reach a goal and get what she wants. She has had a hard time trusting people at times (which is probably due to her past relationships with her family and with Luke) and often prefers to work independently. I think for this she is misunderstood by people such as Leo, who find her intimidating and stand-offish. But Annabeth feels she has to do everything herself, for fear if she allows someone else to carry out a task that they will get hurt or won't carry it out as ...more

She is such an under appreciated character, unlike the others, Annabeth is highly dependent on herself. Even though she has no supernatural abilities of her own, her brain makes her the most valuable demigod out of the seven. Let us also not forget what she has been going through throughout the entire series, by far, she has had the most difficult journey, and for the most part, she had to do it ALONE. She deserves more recognition, that's for sure! Annabeth definitely deserves a rank in the top 3 at least!

Annabeth is tough, witty, clever and brave. She's pretty but doesn't flaunt it. She isn't there just to be Percy's love interest either. Annabeth has her share of flaws and definitely isn't perfect. She's always been a role model to me

I totally agree with what is beneath my answer. 100%. She really is my role model. She’s smart and beautiful in her own way. ( well, she’s pretty smart in not only her own way.) I think she does get under appreciated. Her beauty is reflected in the mirror, but mostly her heart. Percy’s girlfriend is what she is called. But she is much more than that. Percy really should treat her well, I’m not saying he has done a bad job, but the 7 need to wake up a little bit and make sure they are not taking Annabeth for granted.

5 Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano

Reyna is honestly one of my favorite characters in the series. Look at her life. Her backstory is one of my favorite ones. She had to kill her father to protect her sister. She then is imprisoned by pirates. She goes to Camp Jupiter. She has such a tough personality. She became praetor along with Jason. She loved Jason. But when she realized Piper and Jason were dating, she didn't let her grief ruin her. And, I think that she and Jason would've actually had a better relationship than Piper and Jason. She is a strong, confident person on the outside, but when you know her better, you realized how damaged she is. Like I said, she killed her father. Because she loved her sister. Then Jason goes missing, leaving her basically in charge of the camp alone. Then he comes back- BUT WAIT! He has a girlfriend. And she really loved him. But she never showed it. Think about if your life-long crush, went missing for almost a year. You are paranoid, but trying to stay calm. But then he shows up ...more

Reyna is my favourite female character (fave male is leo, of course! ). She is so tough and has been refused 2 times, but she still doesn't lose hope and keeps fighting. She has always been a role model to me (even though an imaginary one). She is amazing at fighting in battles, unlike other girls, who just wait for the men to save them. Reyna is such an amazing character, she deserved a lot more than she got

Having felt betrayed by Jason, refused by Percy, and leading the camp all by herself for so long, Reyna lost hope that anything could go right for her and felt completely alone. Outwardly, she still projects the image of a confident, fearless leader; internally, she is tired and weary. JUST FEEL YOU FEELS GUYS!

She's my favorite character. SHE IS SO COOL!

6 Hazel Levesque Hazel Levesque

I never understood why people don't like her. She's amazing! She came back from the dead after SEVENTY YEARS. She was bullied and was rescued by Leo's great- grandfather, she had to move away from the one person who actually loved her, after she comes back she runs into a descendant of her old boyfriend but is still an awesome fighter! - AnnaOfArendelle332

Hazel is amazing! She knows how to be a true friend.

Hazel should be at the top! She spent SEVENTY years in the Underworld. She deserves it!

Hazel deserves better on this list I mean come on, power over metal? How cool is that!

7 Jason Grace Jason Grace

People think Jason is SO PERFECT with no flaws, and a pretty useless character who is very arrogant. WELL, I'm glad Jason was introduced into the series cause we've already got enough jokers and why would you want another one of them? Jason is serious because he was abandoned by his mom, raised by brutal pack of wolves, and lived in the Roman Camp which was basically like a Military Camp. You can't expect a person that lived like that to be all relaxed and comedic like Percy or Leo. You need some seriousness in life as well, you can't just live your life like it was some kind of joke, because it isn't.

People say that you can't relate to Jason. I disagree, I know some people that CAN relate to Jason, I think most people can relate to him, but because you probably don't have any famous relative or amazing sibling, you feel no connection to Jason. Here is an explanation:

Imagine if your father was a famous musician, and then everyone just expects you to be as good as him, ...more

Jason is a horrible character. He's a complete copy of Percy except he has no personality.

Percy Jackson shown more worth in battle than Jason, so screw you the person who called Percy a bastard

Awesome POWERS LIKE PERCY and he has a good weapon

8 Frank Zhang

Come on. Frank does NOT get enough credit. He connects to a lot of people because he has so many flaws, and yet he's still a hero. And he definitely proves his heroism by saving everyone SO MANY TIMES. He is an ultimate shapeshifter AND a son of Mars. Frank is awesome.

He's so relatable. He's got so many insecurities, but he still moves on and that's inspirational to me. I really love his character and he's pretty amazing with all the powers and abilities he has!

Frank is one of my favorite characters because he is so much like me! Plus he's saved everyone a bunch of times! He even got the blessing of Mars twice! How cool is that!?!

I hate frank because he's to op

9 Piper McLean Piper McLean

To be honest she really does a lot, she is just not portrayed as a badass, so people don't take her as seriously as she deserves. She stopped so many battles within the groups and outside. It's important to know that she takes care of the gangs emotional state, as well as helping them kill the enemies. She is a daughter of beauty, but is also super smart. This is unique and unpredictable. Anna Beth is smart because she is the daughter of Athena. Piper goes against those odds of being a typical daughter of Aphrodite and is clever and down to earth. She is also the only reason Leo stayed at wilderness and didn't run away, its because he found a sister.he found family after a long time of being alone. She also risked her own life to save nico, who she didn't even know at that point.

Piper does have her own character and she sure is strong in her own way but, the way she lives on the idea that Jason is better than Percy, she sucks, man! Still, I suppose I'd have done the same thing with my boyfriend!

That's just rude she's important too and if anyone should be at the bottom it should be Jason

She really needs to be closer to the top...:(

18 Thalia Grace Thalia Grace

#1 favorite character. She awesome and you can't deny it. She is super badass and one of the best fighters not to mention that she's lieutenant of the hunters of Artemis. Thalia's also so noble, she died to save her friends. How much better can you get? Rick needs to give her way more attention. She deserves her own book if you ask me. - Oreo_xo

Why is she no.? She is the definition of awesomeness

Thalia is fierce,fun and great in battle. She is the daughter of Zeus and the sister of Jason. She joined the hunters of Artemis and is my favorite character ever! You go girl!

Lobe thalia to death. Wish she got to make more appearances. For now I'll just have to settle with the best book in PJO, The Titans Curse.

Okay, okay, for all of you Octavian haters.

I have a new death for him.

I say that he shall be drenched in cockroach juice, rolled around in the sand, blindfolded and put into a room with... wait for it...


After that, juice and sand once more. Then, tied up outside until he agrees to sing that Barbie song for dinner entertainment, or until the rolls pollys get to him.
Then what happened in BoO.

How’s that?
