Top Ten Heroes of Olympus Characters

The Top Ten
1 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).

Leo is just an amazing character. I think Percy and Annabeth are so overrated and Leo is 100% the smartest demigod on the ship, not Annabeth- he doesn't get enough credit in that regard. He's just an awesome character and though he's a hot mess in Blood of Olympus he's still a great character. I feel like he's also one of the three characters with flaws that actually get called out in the series (Nico, Leo, Reyna) and he's so three dimensional. I love characters who are flawed, because that's what makes them real. That's what makes them characters who are remembered.

This dude is the only reason I re-read the books a billion times. I just like flipping through chapters and searching for his name, it’s weird, I know. Jason is an immediate no, Percy should NOT a have been in the seven like c9mon dude you already had a WHOLE book series JUST about YOU share the spotlight and he was a LITTLE TOO heroic when he went in to Tartarus and came back so I hate Percy no offense, Annabeth is the same as Percy, Hazel is just a NO, Frank is also a NO, Piper to me is also an immediate NO. So yeah, this dude really brightened up my day and the whole series.

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

Leo is just well... Awesome. You CANNOT deny you have read The Lost Hero solely because of him. I guess the reason I think he's so cool is because, 1. He is a sarcastic and funny person like me, 2. He understands machines like me, and 3. He is'nt a romantic couple person, he doesn't have a girlfriend and he has a complicated past. I also think the way he is the 7th wheel like Nemesis said is also why he is kinda like me, since all my so called "friends" don't really include many things with me. Leo is the best hero in this intire series... Suck it Percy Jerkson (sorry I had to say that so don't get mad at me please) Leo is best.

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

The one and only Seaweed brain is totally the best!
He's kind, funny, selfless, loyal and resourceful. He's probably the most powerful demigod, yet he cares about all his friends and uses his powers for good.
He reminds me of Poseidon, (Who is easily my favourite god) and cares about Tyson, who is also great.
I love his ocean powers, I think it suits him much better than Zeus's powers, and think both he and Poseidon are really underrated, whilst Jason is definitely overrated.
How could anyone forget the most famous ship ever; Percabeth! They're so perfect for each other, and Percy cares so much about her, and she cares so much about him two!
- Typhoon the SeaWing

He is the best in combat. He can even control blood, poison, and even make hurricanes. He is really powerful, and kind, and helpful.

Percy is the best he defeated ares the god of war when he was 12 he brought the golden fleece and saved Thalia. He lifted the sky! Well we all know annabeth is intelligent but many times Percy has also cracked things by using is wits like chosing Rachel to lead in labyrinth. He fought kronos bathed in river styx saved the world many times. He is the mightiest demigod ever born don't forget the time in tartarus which he survived even tartarus himself has to rise defeat him. The earth mother especially wanted his blood to wake her up. Even nico di Angelo who is my second favorite stated in the end of mark of Athena that Percy Jackson is the best. He was offered immortality. He is the reason now that CHB has so many camps. He is the most powerful which he proved in the battle of labyrinth by causing a huge disaster and his only fatal flaw is loyalty which is a good thing.

Honestly, I have favorite parts in every single book of HOO about mainly him. In the Son of Neptune, I love the way he talks about Arion. And that the only thing that kept him going was just Annabeths face. In the Mark of Athena, I love his little diet coke escape plan, it had me dying. And he sneaks out with Annabeth. Love that part. In the House of Hades Percy is just so caring about Annabeth I nearly cried. And in Blood of Olympus he is just the normal Percy I love. Shame on those who don't vote him, even if he's 1st!

3 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase is a daughter of Athena and one of the main characters of both the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series. She's also Percy Jackson's girlfriend and has no particular powers aside from her brains and tactics.

Love her one of my favorites. SUCK IT PERCY! She is one of the smartest people I ever read about I just love her.She has much power over everyone. The reasons I love her. 1, she is smart like me, 2 she is powerful like me, and 3 she is a very sensitive person and loves everyone that she trusts. But if anyone can agree Percy and Annabeth are soulmates no more shipping Rachel and Percy.(Hate you Rachel) Many things that she does like fight with a knife I can't do.(trust me I tried it did not end well).All the things she does I love I wish and that takes a lot of skill!

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

How can you not like Annabeth? Right from the first few lines when we meet her we just know she is a good character. She will do anything to protect Percy’s life and she cares about her friends and family. Annabeth fits really well into the series, she is smart and kind and cares about her friends and will do anything for them. Annabeth is powerful and can somehow keep Percy more or less under control, that takes skill!

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!

4 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 Trials 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 ...read more.

Honestly, Nico is hands down my favourite character from the books. He has so much character development, we see him slowly change from the curious, enthusiastic little kid to the survivor of Tartarus. He's strong, capable, cunning and skilled but he's also relatively understanding, relatable and I love the fact that he is gay. Some people insist that it was sudden but I had realised by the end of the Last Olympian I simply could not see Nico with a girl, though I did think he was just going to stay single. He's a well thought out character who is flawed, can be horrible and is quiet, but he's great representation for introverted people, LGBTQ+ people, Italians, goth/emo people and more. Also, the fact that he's so loyal to Percy and Hazel really warms my heart and it seems to me he's just as loyal as Percy is.

Nico is just the best. He is so underrated. He is so strong in the face of darkness. He went through Tartarus, he led the seven to Epirus, he wandered he Labrynth alone, he lost everything, yet he still risks his life to bring the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half-Blood. He is so hated for being gay, but who cares? He's the best.

Nico is my favourite character from the whole book series(although Percy is a close second)
At first, he is a silly boy that played Mythomagic, Then when Bianca dies he got all series, He was a loner with Minos.
After, I felt like people just acknowledged him as powerful.
He then went to Tartarus by HIMSELF
I felt like he had a changing personality and eventually he overcame his fears,he told Percy he liked him. that is what I call a hero

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.

5 Hazel Levesque

She's a badass. She would help Leo teach me about making stuff, and help Percy teach me to fight. then we'd just crash and watch horror movies.

At first I really didn’t like Hazel, she had no backstory that we knew of, we didn’t know really anything about her. However when we got through the story, we find out her backstory, her pain and her joy and she really starts to grow on you

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!

Of all the Characters, she has the most interesting backstory. Plus, she has magic, Pluto powers, and crazy gem conjuring stuff. Enough said.

6 Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano

Reyna is such an underrated character. She is such a queen- it's rare for a female to become praetor of the Legion, but once Jason goes missing she manages to run the camp by herself for months. She's strong and smart, but she hides her emotions and will always put other people first. She's an amazing character and I love how Rick makes sure to state that Reyna does have flaws (unlike Percy, Annabeth, Hazel, Frank, Jason and Piper who have obvious flaws that are never touched on in Heroes of Olympus).

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 was strong throughout the entire series. She didn't give up when Jason left her or when Percy refused her, she continued to be determined. I think Jason made a huge mistake when he left her for Piper. Sure Piper is pretty but so is Reyna, not only that Reyna is independent and strong. Piper is just this girl who thinks that Jason is the world(Percy is the better) and is totally dependent on him. She's like a pretty princess waiting for her prince charming but otherwise useless.

She is a strong, independent queen who does not need a man to survive or define her self. (SPQR: Super Powerful Queen Reyna) I love her character and I am glad we got to see her point of view in BoO.

7 Frank Zhang

I think Jason and Frank should swap.
In my opinion, Jason is a slightly less powerful Percy with a more serious attitude. And I prefer snarky, sarcastic people like Percy and Leo.
I also really like Frank. His life depends on a piece of wood, and he can shapeshift. Thalia can basically do everything Jason can do. But is there anyone else who can do what Frank can?

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!?!

8 Calypso

I love that Rick freed her from her curse and brought leo back to her.

Kind and caring but also tough and don't-you-dare-mess-with-me.

Calypso is pretty cool! She is strong and lovable.

Calypso is best doki

9 Jason Grace

I don't think people understand that although he's "perfect" with so many characters, there had to be one of them. He's very powerful and I don't think he should be compared to Percy because that's not fair to either of them. I think people often forgot Percy was the original character, so duh he's going to be a bit more OP (overpowered) than is realistic and he also gets more focus in terms of character development since the first series is literally named after him. Jason's very Roman in that he's disciplined and respectful. Although he needed more character development I feel, he was still a good person and very skilled. I think Jason often is unfairly judged, and although I don't think he's the best character he isn't as bad as people say he is. Rest in peace Jason, you were brave and you deserve Elysium.

If I'm being honest he wasn't really my favorite at first, but now I like him a lot because of how I can relate to him. I love his idea of expanding/choosing his family and would love to do the same. I also understand why he's so "perfect". I understand what it's like to try your best not to make mistakes that others have made so that you don't end up like them. He is definitely the character that I connect with the most. People say he is a worse version of percy but I think they are looking at the wrong qualities(not saying that jason is better though. Percy>Jason). Jason has definitely not done as much as percy, but he is still brave. His sacrifice helped Apollo and Meg complete that part of there quest and without it, they would probably all be dead. He tries his best to please everyone and keep peace and I admire him for that. R.I.P. Jason.

Honestly didn't like him that much... came across as a poor man's Percy but still. He just wants to do what is right and is seriously good. I love him so much and like I can't even!

He cares about everyone he meets, and truly tries to help everyone. He even understood why Nico liked Percy when they met Cupid. He's just an all around nice guy.

10 Piper McLean Piper McLean is a fictional character created by Rick Riordan in The Heroes of Olympus series. She is one of the Seven of the prophecy and is the daughter of Aphrodite.

I wish I had the power to charm-speak. That would be the coolest thing ever. Piper isn't my #1 favorite character but she is a great character

In my opinion she is the character that went through the most emotional development. She is kind, open minded and super underrated

Piper is a good character. She makes a good fit into the story and I know some people say she is useless but SHE IS NOT! In the lost hero, she stops Leo and Jason from killing each other, and she had only just learnt to charmspeak. Piper is relatable, she is strong and confident, but it takes her time to get there and all she wants is to spend time with her friends and family

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.

The Contenders
11 Gleeson Hedge

Hedge should be higher up. HE's not the best but he's SO funny but also protective and understanding.

He technically counts as a main character, since he is there almost as often.

Hedge is full of spirit and has a funny violent personality

So funny. Definitely stupid but in a funny way

12 Mrs. O'Leary

She is friendly and awesome. I know I want her as my pet.

Lol pol she just sucks to the core of the universe

How dare you! Ms.O'Leary is absolutely cool! Really,a friendly hellhound? That's just so COOL!

I she was my pet

13 Festus

OH MY GOD! I love metal fire breathing dragons repaired by my favorite human in hoo. Festus is just amazing.

Doesn't an awesome Bronze Dragon count as a character?

Ok! Who doesn't love Giant mechanical fire breathing dragons!

Fetus is pretty cool

14 Blackjack

Blackjack is always there for Percy when he needs him. He even warmed up to Nico, who smelled like death, eventually.

Blackjack is the best thing ever, he is hilarious and caring, he should be above jason

Oh Yeah! Anyone who thinks that Blackjack is not Awesome is Dead!

Blackjack is the best flying horse ever. He is caring and funny.

15 Tyson

He is a General for a reason, he also is very nice to his friends and especially to Percy

Tyson is so cool. He is a little clueless but I love him

Do I really need to say anything?

Tyson is caring and loveable.

16 Bob

Bob I said an emotional character who does anything for friends and even when he realizes what had happened he still stays with them and saves Percy and Annabeth’s life.

Iaeptus percy dipped him in the river lethe in the sword of hades and he helped them in tartars '

Bob is cool and awesome! It was sad that he sacrificed himself.

He is such a cinnamon roll and just yeah

17 Small Bob

Small Bob is awesome. I love Bob too of course but Small Bob that little bit more

Best cat ever! Small Bob and Festus are the best.

Small Bob is better than everyone.

He is a good character

18 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.

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.

Thalia is smart and fast. She is a tough girl and doesn't need no man to run her life. She is my kind of girl.

19 Will Solace

He makes Nico happy, he's a ball of sunshine. What's not to like?

Will is very caring

He makes Nico happy.

My favorite character Leo called him cool, he IS a cool to me too :)

20 Rachel Elizabeth Dare

She needs more love. Everything she got she just rolled with like yeah cool. Oh you want me to be the Oracle; whatever sounds good.

She's the oracle of Delphi and deserves more respect X3

21 Dakota

Dudes, it is clear Dakota is da boss.
Not only is kind and hilarious, but addicted to KOOL-AID Y A S
He backed Hazel. He is an awesome friend to her and Frank despite their differences.
HE SHOULD DATE GWEN (yup)
He's the ONLY character than stays true to himself despite being a leadah
HE DUZ NAT dISCRIMINATE dem Satyrs (nop)
'tis clear he is da best

22 Chiron

N
Yeah but Chiron is super cool!?!? I mean like,seriously,if it wasn't for him Annabeth wouldn't have really been able to learn how to really wield her awesome fighting skills she already had!

Hate him. Read The Titan's Curse. He said something mean about Nico

He is a strong brave and always knows the right words to say.

Chiron is strong and brave and knows what words to choose.

23 Grover Underwood

I really think he is cool I was sad when I saw he asn't in the next series

He is awesome

I feel like Grover is too underrated. Like, he kept Percy alive for a year. Not that easy. ~S

Grover deserves so much more than he got. Percy wouldn’t even be at camp half blood if it wasn’t for him!

24 Damasen

Damasen is just amazing. He was so brave in the face of his father who at the time was very angry. I would not face Tartarus happy or not. He was loyal to Annabeth and Percy by buying them time to escape. Between Bob and him I do not know what to say.

Damasen stood up to his father and that's no small feat

Damasen is brave to stand up to the wrath of his father.

Why is all the way down here? He is a really big hero

25 Artemis

Artemis is so strong she’s like the only god who isn’t a jerk!
