Most Heroic and Brave Percy Jackson Characters


The Top Ten

1 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"

Let's think logically

Percy is SUPER brave... in his own funny way.

He deserves number 1! I love you, Percy!

2 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).

Come on Leo for the rule and boo Percy

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.

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 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.

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!

Just pure amazing

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

5 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

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

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

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.

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 am Jason. This is Number One

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

My name is Jason so he should be 1

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 Zoe Nightshade

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

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

13 Tyson

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

14 Bianca Di Angelo

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

15 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.

"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

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

*Sobs* - Rye

18 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.

19 Charles Beckendorf

He's a beast

20 Magnus Chase
21 Octavian

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

22 Chiron
23 Chris Rodriguez
24 Gwen
25 Rachel Elisabeth Dare
26 Artemis

She’s a hunting goddess! #Brave

27 Briares
28 Meg McCaffrey

She is a hero

29 Festus

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

30 Dakota
31 Paul Blofis
32 May Castellan
33 Hephaestus
34 Poseidon

Haha this is so wrong...

35 Clarisse La Rue

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

36 Smelly Gabe
37 Juniper
