Most Heroic and Brave Percy Jackson Characters

The Top Ten

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

Percy is corky, sass, He has THE BEST one liner ever, but his fatal flaw is he will do anything for his friends. That is bravery. He got his memories wiped for the greater good of humanity. Percy is almost always about to die. Plus don't you think it takes bravery to fight Luke with a monster bug that will kill you in sixty second. Need I remind you he got stung be that. Oh by the way the one liner I mentioned before, my personal favorite, "I shook my head. "I'm a lot of things but I'm not a thief"

Truth revealed:I hate this person !I don’t have a good reason but I hate Percy

You guessed it, percy Jackson is the bravest hero, as nico do angelo said. Thousand times better that Harry potter. Percy Jackson cares for his friends and saves the world not because he wants to be immortal. He saves the world because he cares about it and his friends

Percy is awesome. He's really funny and he makes me laugh all the time. He also has big flaws, which is good in a character. For example, Jason is mentioned as perfect in the Lost Hero more than once, and you can see how much people like him... (cough, no, cough). If Percy Jackson didn't exist, the series might not be so worth reading.

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).

percy: like your zodiac sign?
I'm a leo
leo: no stupid. I'm a leo. your a percy

He DIED ! And any one who read the books knows how good he is

Love him so much!

Ok, Leo is the bravest. No offense to Percy lovers, but Percy is only 2% the bravery of Leo. Leo faced DEATH. Percy could never do half the things Leo did, while I feel like Leo could do almost all the things Percy did. It is one thing to be brave to your enemies, like Percy, but the bravest thing to do is be brave to your friends, like when Leo told Piper and Jason to leave him on the Argo 2. He knew they probably wouldn't let him, but it was his job. He had to, so he forced Piper and Jason to leave him. That is true bravery.

He got himself killed. That is pretty brave. I probably would have ranked him second instead of third, except for the fact that in the prophecy he was pretty much fated to die, and like Hades said, some death aren’t meant to be prevented. Then he goes back to Calypso!


She sacrificed herself TWICE. She got herself killed to stop Alcyoneus fro rising, then she gave up ELysium for her mother. Who could be braver than her?!

Hazel is the bravest the best and the most heroic of the seven so haters stop hating and look on the good side

Personally it's a tie between her and Percy but I literally vote for Percy on every list so time to give hazel the credit she deserve she sacrificed herself in life and death for her mother if that's not brave I don't know what is

Hazel sacrificed herself TWICE just so others wouldn't suffer. First, she sacrificed her life. Then, she GAVE UP ELSYIUM just so her mother (who wasn't that nice to her in the first place) wouldn't suffer. And that was all before the Heroes of Olympus series even started.

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 more.

Nico literally persuaded his DAD, the dad that literally can kill u so easily, into helping the Olympians. He also helped Percy escape!

He always is misunderstood but has always been the bravest there is. He changed hades mind so hades would help even though he knew his father would probably kill him. He has not saved many people because he never gets a chance.

Nico is so brave. He is so misunderstood but he still helps. Even though he is gay, has many secrets he still chooses the good guys side! And he fell into tautarus to help the the giant war!

How is Nico di Angelo below Percy Jackson? Nico went through so much. His depression after losing his sister. His anxiety. The nightmares that plagued him after Tartarus. (He went through Tartarus alone, Percy had Annabeth). His discrimination because he is the son of Hades. His fear of coming out because he was born in an era where homosexuals were prosecuted. Not only is he mentally strong but he's also physically strong. This kid could raise armies of skeletons and travel around the country using shadows when he was twelve, that's the age Percy found out he was a demigod. And how can he be below Annabeth? All she does is stick to Percy. Yes brains are better than strength but I felt she was to clingy to Percy. I like Hazel but I feel that Nico is stronger than her. Leo is one of my favorite characters too and he went through some sad stuff in his past but Nico still beats him. None of these characters are as inspirational to me as Nico. I connected with him. My past is quite ...more

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.

She is the reason why Percy is a hero. All those years she has been helping Percy in his battles. She also through herself in front of a poisoned knife for him.

Annabeth chase is probably the only person that can keep a guy like percy in control. With her sad past and great role in the percy Jackson and heroes of Olympus series she definitely deserves 2nd place

annabeth gets hate for no reason

I don't understand why people give percy all the credi, I mean he's strong and powerful and stuff but without Annabeth Chase-"Jackson" he would be dead.


She literally got blessed by Athena/Minerva, earning a legendary (LEGENDARY) cape, single-handedly led the entire camp to war, plus she actually put up with a certain screeching-chicken-on-fire called Octavian for a long time, every guy she liked left her, but she never had any hard feelings.

WHY is she ranked so low?! She is brought up with romans who are like absolutely not rule-breakers, yet she risked her praetorship to go bring the Athen Parthenon to CHB.

She sacrificed so much and she is so brave to face her past again

Reyna had sacrificed so much on the HOPE to save booth camps! Her life has been terrible! She has been cursed by the love goddess, she had to kill her own pegasus to put it out of misery, and she also can feel others pain. Think, she leads a lot of people and she feels ALL of their pain! Read the Blood of Olympus for more of her suffering! 😐

Thalia Grace

Thalia was brave enough to sacrifice herself to save her friends. She was brave enough to turn down power. She was brave enough to kick her former friend's ass. She was brave enough to take a pillar for her friends. She was brave enough to drive a sun bus into a lake. She was brave enough to ask her father for help. She was brave enough to talk about cheeseburgers in the middle of a war. She was brave enough to talk with a knife to her throat. She was brave enough to take a stand and say that she didn't want to live like a hunted animal. She was brave enough to fight countless monsters. She was brave enough to stand up to 4 goddesses. So what if she's afraid of heights? She should be at least number three

YES THALIA IS A LIVING SACRIFICE! She turned into a tree! Isn't that enough!

Thalia was proclaimed by both Atlas, a TITAN, and Grover, a satyr with magical half blood sensing abilities, to be, alongside Percy, the greatest hero of the age, and the most powerful demigod. Just saying...

She sacrificed herself for her friends, refused to turn against Olympus even though she was surrounded by temptation, and then saved Annabeth and Percy by taking a falling statue. She beat Luke in sword fighting. Enough said.

Frank Zhang

he sacrificed himself for new rome(or would have if his life was tied to the firewood) he tried to destroy the greatest threat.

Frank is awesome



Luke deserves to be drastically higher on this list than he is. His ordeal was probably one of the hardest in the entire damn series!

He KILLED himself to stop Kronos. KILLED himself. If that’s not brave, I don’t know what is!

He should be #1! He was the final tipping point to stop Kronos!


HE SHOULD BE SECOND. Percy should be first. I LOVE LEO, but he only sacrificed himself because he had the Physician's cure. Percy and Jason would willingly sacrifice themselves any day. But come on guys. Jason DIED to save Piper, Apollo, and Meg's lives. Even though Piper broke up with him, he was still ready to fight Caligula for her. Some people don't like him just because he was serious, but he was raised by Lupa, and by Camp Jupiter, which was basically a military camp. Can you blame him for being serious? Also, what's wrong with being serious? Leo and Percy already make
enough jokes for the entire crew of the Argo II. We don't need another Percy or another Leo. I don't see what's so bad about Jason. He is a hero, a leader, a friend, and so much more. He is my fourth favorite character, and needs to be higher than 11th. And Hazel as third? Really? I love Hazel, but she is the least heroic out of the seven in my opinion. Also, Nico should be lower. He's a great character, but ...more

Okay let's talk about Jason. Personally He should be 2. I mean yeah percy is 1 but if you think that leo valdez deserves to be two you are messed up I mean leo is just some smart person and jason fought three giants in 2 days I really think Jason should be 2

Jason can control the weather if he wants too, and he survived an Imperial Gold wound.

Jason should be #2. I don't like Percy, but even I have to admit he is #1

The Contenders

Zoe Nightshade

She took a risk by waking up Ladon, who gave her the wound. She also charged into battle even though she was already wounded.

She went on a quest even though she was sure that she was going to die. She was truly brave and so underrated.

She went along with the group to save the world even though she knew she was going to die sometime in the quest

Zoe is amazing! She deserves to be higher

Grover Underwood

OK, he isn't the bravest, but Grover is brave! He was undercover in the cyclops den, He led 3 demigods who were trailed by monsters to camp half-blood, he faced his fear and went into the labyrinth, THEN faced them again with Tyson.


You bet! It's amazing that he's so brave when in Cyclops terms, he's just a baby!

Bianca Di Angelo

She took a risk by getting the Hades figurine for her brother, even though it was a dumb risk, she still did it. And she sacrificed herself to stop the machines thing.

In my mind, extremely brave. Nina a sacrificed herself and looked after Nico when Norine else was there.

she died not wanting anyone else to die in the desssert

Jasmine She is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 31st animated feature film Aladdin (1992).

What the heck is she doing here with a fancy disney picture?
And why in the world is she 15?

I love jasmine but she is not a Percy Jackson character.

I'm kind of disgusted at the moment.



Piper is more heroic than people give her credit for. Always remember, without her, Percabeth would be dead!

The forced, least heroic of the seven. She has suffered the least. Remember this in the end was written and none of it happened. Each scene she featured was agonizingly forced into being.

Piper is NOT a hero. She did NOTHING and hid behind Jason's back if there was a fight.

Without her, each of the seven would have died

Ethan Nakamura

he wanted to change the world and when it came to it he was brave enough to defy the lord of time

He sacrificed an eye, and himself for the minor gods, there’s nothing braver than tthat.

I'm sorry, but only Ethan and Percy dared to attack someone protected by the mark of Achilles.


Sally Jackson

Dude, she risked her life on SEVERAL occasions just to make sure that Percy was OK. Definitely one of the most underrated characters in the book.

Charles Beckendorf

He knew he had no chance of surviving the explosion, yet he still activated it to try stop Kronos.

He's a beast

Magnus Chase

Come on, he literally DIED for New Rome.
Not intentionally, sure, but still.

Clarisse La Rue

She is so brave and heroic. Just try to argue.


Rachel Elisabeth Dare

Being a mortal, she is VERY brave.


She’s a hunting goddess! #Brave

Meg McCaffrey

She is a hero
