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.

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

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.

Percy is very brave and all... but I think that pink flying hippo in the background should be number one. It did all the fighting and hard work while Percy was eating a tofu taco. The truth...

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

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).

Braver than Hazel. Hazel was gonna die anyways and didn't have anything really to live for other than Sammy. Leo had something to live for and wasn't sure he was actually gonna be able to come back but was willing to die for the cause several times.

Anyone who read the Blood of Olympus can see how Leo is the bravest and most heroic character. (Besides Percy, of course. - AnnaOfArendelle332

Leo Valdez is much braver than Percy! Percy never gave up his life! I would've voted Hazel, but Leo was lower.

3 Hazel

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

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

Finally Hazel is recognised.

Hazel has GUTS. - errrr

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.

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

Nico went through so much and in the last of The Battle of the Labyrinth Percy wonders if he had ever had a birthday party and that is so sad... Also he did a lot of things alone and I think he is the bravest.

Braver than Frank a guy that cries and whines about his stick.

He went through so much...yet he persevered.
He gets my vote. - Camaro6

5 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase

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

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 should be higher

Best character ever

6 Reyna

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

#Reynico - Camaro6

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 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.

10 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.

The Contenders

11 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!

12 Tyson

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

13 Zoe Nightshade

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).



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 Ethan Nakamura

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

*Sobs* - Rye

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

17 Piper

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

Without her, each of the seven would have died

What do u mean when u say that she did nothing? Jason did nothing. She saves the whole group every time there were witches or other people with persuasion powers (which now that I see were quite a lot)

18 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.

Already on here... - Camaro6

That's right bitches, we are putting NICO on this list, not Nicole.

19 Magnus Chase
20 Octavian

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

21 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.

22 Artemis

She’s a hunting goddess! #Brave
