Most Heroic and Brave Percy Jackson 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.

Literally he jumped out of the St. Louis Arch and made a volcano explode. Did I mention he fought Kronos? And WON

Anna beth should be second. She fell in Tartarus with Percy and not Leo. Practically Nick deserve third position.

Percy is obv the bravest. and why does everyone on this site adore nico. All he does is complain about not having friends right after he rejects anyone, he makes his life sad, then complains about it, that's not being brave, LEO PERCY AND ANNABETH ARE BEST.

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 - Richard-indricut

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).

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.

Percy shouldn't be first. Maybe third, but not first. Leo should be first, then maybe Hazel, THEN Percy. Leo is so brave! Without Leo, no giants could ever have been defeated. Why? The argo 2 would never have been built! Leo is the best and the bravest.

People underestimate how powerful Leo actually is.

Leo is the bravest, even braver than Percy. He faced DEATH to save the world. AND he braved everyday with a forced smile, making jokes and such. Just existing and not telling someone...he is brave. And heroic. Anyone who argues hasn't even read the series. I could come up with more examples, but that would take forever.

3 Hazel

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.


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

4 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 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!

Just pure amazing


Already on here... - Camaro6

5 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase

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.

Best character ever

She should be higher

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 - Richard-indricut

6 Reyna

#Reynico - Camaro6

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! 😐

- Peace Out,

7 Thalia Grace 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

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.

Thalia should at least 5th!

8 Frank Zhang

Frank is awesome


9 Luke

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!

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Jason

I have like Jason right from the beginning, he is so very awesome and handsome too. It’s a great pity that he died.

12 Tyson

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

13 Zoe Nightshade

For Zoe ):

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

14 Bianca Di Angelo

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

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

Okay I am a Jasmine fan I loved it when the Aladdin remake came out but at the same time Jasmine is not a Percy jackson character Percy Jackson wasn’t even out back when Aladdin was born I love Jasmine but she should be on another list

I'm kind of disgusted at the moment.

Huh? - Camaro6

"best percy jackson character ever! 11! 1111"
All jokes aside, why the heck is she on this list? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think she's even mentioned in the Percy Jackson series.

16 Piper

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.

Was important but not heroic. - Riverstix5555

Yes Piper is my favorite character!

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

17 Ethan Nakamura

Sad that he died. I have an OC that I ship with him - Camaro6

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

*Sobs* - Rye

18 Magnus Chase
19 Octavian

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

20 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.

21 Artemis

She’s a hunting goddess! #Brave

22 Charles Beckendorf
23 Meg McCaffrey

She is a hero

24 Chiron
25 Chris Rodriguez
26 Gwen
27 Dakota
28 Paul Blofis
29 Rachel Elisabeth Dare
30 May Castellan
31 Briares
32 Hephaestus
33 Poseidon

Haha this is so wrong...

34 Festus

He helped so much...he was brave. And he may be a bromze dragon, but he deserves to be recognized.

35 Clarisse La Rue

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