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).

Love him so much! Team Leo all the way! I love his personality and sense of humor.

I'm like the living embodiment of Supersized mchsizzle man bad boy supreme ladies love a Leo Valdez

He's so funny, if I were in that universe, he, Percy, and Nico would be my big brothers.

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

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

Do I even have to say anything? He is funny, powerful, cool, everything you would want in a demigod.

He's a Seaweed Brain. While Leo would be teaching me about making stuff, and Nico would be teaching me to amp up the creep factor, Percy would be teaching me to fight, give me love advise (I'd push him over a sand dune) and show me how to smuggle junk food.

So funny. Sometimes he is really stupid. But will risk his life for his friends. Percabeth for life!

Jason is basically just a copy of Percy with no personality. Percabeth.

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.

Shes smart and awesome and everything that a daughter of Athena should be.

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!

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

I love her, but I feel like she mellowed out too much after she started dating Percy. Not that I don't ship Percabeth (I love them). ~S

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.

He's been through so much. I don't get why the campers didn't really like him at one point. I mean yeah he's dark and scary on the outside but once you get to know him you learn that he is nice and has good intentions but is hurting on the inside.

So dark and Mysterious. When Bianca died it was so sad she was like a mother to him.

Nico = Awesomeness
His story is so good, we share his pain and his joy (however rarely it comes)
Will + Nico = OMG best couple match made in heav...I mean Elysium!

Nico has always been one of a kind, he always felt like it would be better to act like someone else. He also lost some family members in his life.He also is dark, but always because of good reasons. Being scary to some people might make you feel bad but nico understood other peoples reasons. Now in his life only two people actually care about his life and those people are hazel and percy. So to me dark is not the only to talk about him.

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.

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!

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!

6 Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano

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.

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

She is the best
Literally
Come one
Where is the love for Reyna

I love her, she is strong on the outside and soft and hurt in the inside

7 Frank Zhang

"Frank is so cool. I absolutely love him. He should be in at least the top 5.

He would talk to me and he'd understand, because he knows what it's like to be an outcast. He's also very adorable

He's like a baby sumo wrestler that can turn into a dragon. What's cooler than that? ~S

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?

8 Calypso

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

Calypso is pretty cool! She is strong and lovable.

She Looks Like Me. She Acts Like Me. She is Awesome. I Have Made My Point.

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

9 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

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.

One of the reasons there are multiple POVs and 7 demigods, is so that Percy is not always the main hero. Don't go saying Jason "replaced Percy", because Percy is no longer the main focus, the 7 are. Other people can be heroes and leader too. Not just Percy.

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

10 Piper McLean

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

I feel as if she is really underestimated. Literally everybody would be dead without her charmspeak and she is soooooo loyal!

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.

She started out as not that cool but as the books went she grow into herself and was learn what it meant to be her mothers kid. I love when her and Annabeth are in that cave and she has to feel her way out!

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.

He's awesome! Hilarious! Why isn't he higher?!

Hedge is full of spirit and has a funny violent personality

12 Mrs. O'Leary

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

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

I she was my pet

Lol pol she just sucks to the core of the universe

13 Festus

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

The poor guy... he was a great dragon *sniffles* I miss him as much as Leo does... ~S

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?

14 Blackjack

Blackjack may annoy Percy but he’s never let him down and will push himself to his limits and beyond to help him.

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

Why is this dude so low he's like the best horse/flying horse anyone could ever have :D

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

15 Bob

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

He should be number 2, after Leo.

Bob is better than you.

He is such a cinnamon roll and just yeah

16 Tyson

Percy's brother and a Cyclops he is AWESOME

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

Tyson is caring and loveable.

He is hilarious

17 Small Bob

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

I LOVE SMALL BOB! Up top with Leo, Hazel, Reyna and Frank for the best new character (i hate Jason and Piper)

He is a good character

Small Bob is better than everyone.

18 Thalia Grace

Thalia the tree. Thailia the kid. Thailia the teen. Thailia the immortal huntress.

She's sooo kickass. Also, I ship her with Zoe, even though she's dead. Anyone else? ~S

#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.

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

19 Will Solace

Will is very caring

He makes Nico happy.

Nicos happiness

To the other comment, why did you say 'i don't like the people in the fandom that make him gay and like nico'

but he is gay what are you talking about

20 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

21 Chiron

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

I LOVE CHIRON (I don't like Charon)

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

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

22 Grover Underwood

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

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

He is awesome

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

23 Rachel Elizabeth Dare

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

24 Poseidon

I feel like he has been a pretty good dad to Percy... that’s about it.

25 Damasen

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

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

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

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.
