Most Powerful Demigods From Percy Jackson

Who do you think is the most powerful from all of the demigods we encounter in the Percy Jackson series?

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.

Percy is definitely the most powerful, being a Son of Poseidon. No-one really is able to yet match his seemingly unbeatable strength and power. Though Jason is quite powerful, I have to say Percy easily snatches the title of most powerful. A wicked swordsman, he gets the central role in the books and has destroyed everything that has come to match him. Percy Jackson, Son of Poseidon- the strongest there is. - top10master

I think percy is the best because all the time in the book although the 7 demigods are mentioned percy always gets the most important role. He is always referred to as by nico as the most powerful of all. He is truly so as he has all the water realm at his command. He is the best of all.

Who is the most powerful demigod? Rick Riordan basically said it himself. I think we can all agree that the title of 'the most powerful demigod' will go to a son of the Big Three, meaning Percy, Jason and Nico (of course Thalia and Hazel are powerful too).
So, if I'm not mistaken: In 'The Son of Neptune' Hazel said that she thought Jason was the most powerful demigod in Camp Jupiter, until Nico came. And of course her mind might have been changed again when Percy demonstrated his skills.
And then, Nico said that Percy was the most powerful demigod he ever met, so that means that Percy is the most powerful demigod. And if you compare their powers, I think anyone can see that Percy has the most powers. And even more, since apparently his powers of water even extent to poison and the Lethe, so who knows what he will be able to do in time...

Great swordsman and leader

2 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 ...read more.

Nico is most definitely the most powerful demigod! Let me begin by saying he began using his powers at the age of ten, before Percy even had a clue of his origins. Secondly, he can control shadows, heat, the dead, the earth, and so much more! Hot dude in control of zombies! Hello?! Anyways, he went through Tartarus alone. He has such a strong will to survive and never gives up. He is most defensively, unarguably the most scarred and emotionally traumatized demigod in the series, everyone has to admit that. His sister left him alone at camp when he was young, she died, he wandered the Labyrinth alone with only the company of spirits and was still able to fight in the Battle of the Labyrinth and save everyone's butts! Going on, Nico convinced Hades to help out with the war against Kronos. That's hella scary. Convincing the Lord of the Dead to help the Olympians and demigods, not easy! He ended up bringing back Hazel, searching for missing Percy, surviving Tartarus and the jar with his ...more

Nico is surely the most powerful. He has some of the most powers. While Jason and Percy may have better domains, Nico can control ghosts, shadows(shadow travel) and even the dead aka zombies and skeletons. True, Percy may be able to control the water, and Jason the skies, but they are also much older and experiences, as Jason has been at Camp Jupiter since he was like 3, and Percy was already at Camp when Nico arrived. Plus, in a fight, Nico has loads of servants, and can shadow travel away, which would be the exact same as Jason flying away, or Percy using the seas to his advantage. Nico also spends most of his time in the Underworld, hanging out with the dead, which proves he could easily just walk out of the Underworld. That makes him practically immortal. So, he's technically immortal without a curse of Achilles, which makes him much stronger and more powerful than Percy.

He can control the dead, he can control shadows (meaning shadow travel), he can control rocks, make caves and tunnels, he can put himself in a death trance (meaning he can't die), he can create an army of skeletons and he has the best sword ever that has been dippedinto the river styx GO NICO

Nico would probably always be second. Sorry neeks, I love you but... he tires to easily. He can raise the dead but... I mean... ya. - sweetprim10

3 Jason Grace

I agree that Jason is strong but I don't sense bravery from him at all. He is a spoiled brat. His personality is a kind one but he being a son of Zeus/Jupiter is automatically considered a leader, without even proving himself. He is a good guy but on the power level before power comes Bravery, which he doesn't have. No offense but Percy could kick his butt in a life death match, so can Nico and even Thalia. Why? He is too dependent on his powers. - AkaTsuki

Why 'and even' thalia lol thalia is amazing she could destroy them all if she wanted - pjo

Honestly I think Jason is more like a number 2. I do think Nico is strong, but Jason would beat him easily, I mean about all of Nico's moves, Jason has to be on the same level. Jason could fly so.. Most of Nico power won't really work. Also Jason is a master of 2 weapons, and he killed a titan single handedly when Percy and his friends were fighting Kronos. (sorry for the spelling errors.

While Percy Jackson is the best, Jason, on the other hand, is also good in fighting and good looking, which is mentioned in the book. Percy can command the water while Jason can summon lightning, control storm spirits and fly (or flout). - soccerryan

Um no. *coughs, "I hate you Jason Grace." *cough cough.
He is a goody too shoes. Yada yada yam yam, I know, I know. "He's the Son of Jupiter /Zeus though."
Oh shut up. He Legit has to pray for a lightning bolt every time. Dang. Nope. Nope. Thalia should be up here not this brat. Please, to be honest, idc what you say about Thalia, we all know she could beat the whole big 7's butt if she wanted to. So no. Jason no. Thalia yes. - sweetprim10

4 Thalia Grace

Fools. Even if you compare Jason to Thalia, she has a lot more stronger in terms of strength and battle prowess. Her control of Electrokinesis is far more superior than Jason's. To think of it if she didn't have fear of heights she's going to be hard to beat in the skies

Duh. In the Lost Hero, one show of lightning at the campfire exhausted Jason. Thalia does it all the time. If she didn't have her fear of heights, her powers would be even more spectacular.
Also, she's versatile. Her mainly known weapon is Aegis, which she uses in a number of ways, yet she can use a spear like a boss, and her archery skills were of that to match a Huntress, seeing as how she was made Lieutenant of Artemis immediately when she joined.
She also went head-to-head with Percy. Anyone who can do that has my respect.

Thalia and Percy have been said multiple times to be the two greatest and most powerful heroes of the age. Thalia is a main character, right along with the seven. Thalia has been shown to use lightning whenever she wants without tiring, whereas Jason has to pray to Zeus to use lightning for the most part, and he's drained afterward. Sure she can't fly, but only because she's never tried. And she makes up for it with aegis and her fighting skills. She kicked Luke's arse! And she's immortal, and has the hunters of Artemis basically at her disposal. Here's to Percy, Annabeth, Grover, Thalia, Tyson, Nico, and Rachel the ORIGINAL Team PJO! :D

Thalia should be 1. Luke is number 2. Percy is number 3. Just my opinion.

Since Thalia>Luke>Percy who was mentioned to be>Nico>Jason - Spino

5 Leo Valdez Leo Valdez

Leo is TOTALLY the most powerful demigod in the multiverse. Sorry Jason voters, but the world fell to fire, NOT storm. Though many demigods could probably beat him in a serious fight, that would mostly rely on their battle skills, and this...test? Quiz? Is more on the 'demigod abilities' aspect, which is why though Annabeth could totally annihilate ANYONE in battle, she doesn't really have many abilities besides being one of the smartest people to date.

Without Riptide (let us just forget for a moment that it magically always returns to Percy's pocket) and near no bodies of water, Percy would probably be able to put up a good fight, but would eventually succumb to Leo with his fire powers. Being a son of Poseidon, he would be harder to burn than most others, but even the most skilled can be defeated.

I'm all for Persassy but in this circumstance, Team Leo takes the game.

-Grayscale

I think fire could defeat storm and plus Leo could just make a machine to defeat anyone so yah Leo should be number 1

I think its Leo because he has gone through the most before he knew he was a demi god. He was thrown into foster home after foster home and he doesn't have any family and thinks he is the seventh wheel. He has gone through more emotional pain than the other have. Yes three of them went through tatarus but Leo Valdez's LIFE is hell for him.

He's just awesome I mean come on her has fire

6 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase

She is strong and is Smart I mean she's daughter of Athena goddess of wisdom and battle strategy, She is the best strategist at Camp Half-Blood throw her a bone, She is the one who Came up with the idea to find the golden fleece without her Camp Half blood would still be in danger, Grover would still be stuck with polyphemus, and Thalia wouldn't have come back to life...

Annabeth has no special powers like Percy or Jason, but she's pretty beast at fighting and smart too, children of Athena have no superpowers, but they have brains and strategy, which help overcome almost anything.

You know what? Despite having the "disadvantage" of no superpowers, Annabeth has gotten where she is today out of PURE hard work. She's smart, witty and can kick your butt. Annabeth is the first demigod that wasn't driven insane or died for the quest for the Athena Parthenos. Anyone who has really read the books know that if we were judging fairly and no one had powers... Annabeth all the way!

Not powerful just smart. - Spino

7 Frank Zhang

We saw Frank turn into a dragon, so clearly he doesn't just turn into animals, but MAGICAL ANIMALS! For all we know, he could turn into a hydra, or the Nemean Lion! His powers are virtually limitless, especially considering the whole 'swarm of bees' thing. Not one bee, but an entire swarm! could he become an entire flock of birds, or a whole colony of ants? No way to know, I suppose, but I'd say hands down yes. He could command the skeleton warriors and has superb archery skills. Due to the "blessing" of Mars, he's got huge muscles, and so out-muscles the rest of the whole 7. The stick isn't a weakness, it's proof of just how powerful he is. Juno seriously said that he was so powerful his powers would kill him, and that's why he needed the stick- it becomes his weakness instead of his own strength turning on him. And it's not even that bad of a weakness, anyway. People overreact about it, especially considering the fact that if it's on him when he transforms, it just disappears with ...more

Frank can turn into any animal he wants, so he could just just become an animal that could beat the others.

He has ways to disguise in a fight that no other demigod can. He is an amazing fighter with a bow and could kill any monster by turning into a BEAST! His powers overweight his stick anyway. How is Percy even 1? He even said Frank was a beast! Juno only gave him the lifeline because he was so powerful.

1. Frank Zhang
Big, buff guy, great at archery, and has the power to turn into any animal he wants to, including majestic creatures! He could just turn into a dragon and beat any of the other characters up! He's strong without his powers too.
2. Nico di Angelo
Son of Hades, ability to summon undead warriors and shadow travel. He's almost like a mortal version of Hades!
3. Percy Jackson
Son of Poisodon, great sword fighter, and has the power to summon water at will, and cause hurricanes. As the main character, he's almost never lost!
4. Leo Valdez
Son of Hephaestus, one of my favorite character. Amazing builder, great technology, and has the power to summon fire at will. I wanted to say he is stronger than Percy! He also has Festus.
5. Hazel Levesque
Physically a powerful character, has the power to summon metals, and has Arion the horse, who can move almost at the speed of sound!

8 Hazel Levesque

Hazel is easily the most powerful demigod because there is no one on this list she couldn't kill if she wanted to (but she doesn't because she is great like that). Obviously, she could do it with the Mist, like tricking them into walking off a cliff or thinking that she is not holding a knife when she is or getting them to drink poison while thinking it's really grape juice or something. She also has the ability to control metal, so she could stab someone with their own weapon without lifting a finger. And, though people may forget about this, she also has the cursed-gem thing (or at least she used to, I'm not sure exactly what happened to it) and she could just give them one of those if she didn't want to get her hands dirty.

Hazel's easily underestimated. She can control metals which is now a vital part of today' society, she's basically the female Magneto of the HoO series, she could literally stop a volley of arrows because their tips are made of metal. If that doesn't make her powerful enough, she can also control the Mist which is just. WOW

She controls the mist AND summons metal. She may not be as powerful as Percy or Jason but she should be higher up there.

Hazel is way too underrated - pjo

9 Luke Castellan

His swordplay can only be rivalled by Percy in the demigod community, which is saying something. He is a brave man and does the right thing in his final seconds. He had a reason to betray Gods and I think he correct in most of the situations. - AkaTsuki

This guy should at least be number 5 he's. So awesome and has a lot of fighting skills why is he always so underrated

Because I think they are speaking only about raw power not skill luke was the best swordsmen in the last 200 years but in terms of power compared to others like percy, jason, nico or thalia he really isn't much although I do believe he could defeat jason and nico but because of skill not power - Acorpeno12

When he got beat by Thalia he wasn't at full strength and speed

He should be number 2. People just don't vote him because they don't like him. - Spino

10 Reyna Avila Ramírez-Arellano

Reyna is more powerful than piper by a lot

Reyna isn't just powerful. She's a powerful WOMAN. People forget just how rare it is for a girl to be a praetor of a legion. Reyna can also lend her strength to others. That's a lot better than Luke's powers. In my opinion, Reyna deserves top five

Reyna is the Praetor of the 12th Legion because she is a leader : she can fight, she's smart and she's one of the strongest characters!

Reyna deserves to be way higher I would put her at 1 or 2 to be honest - pjo

The Contenders

11 Piper McLean Piper McLean

Why do people hate her? I am not going to mention everything she did, but she did so many things. Let's not forget that, if it wasn't for her, jason would have died two times and Percy would have drowned. Leo and Jason (again) would have torn each other to death. Khione would have froze them all to death.

She had the choice to betray her friends, but she knew she won't, and she felt sorrow because she knew she will choose to save the world on the account of her father, and she still felt guilty for thinking that she might betray her friends.

She is trying her best to prove herself, and she cares about her loved ones a lot.

Just because she cares about Jason (her boyfriend) means that she is a bad person? what is that? Is Percy bad just because he cares about Annabeth that he chose to fall in Tartarus for her?

This is stupid. Yes, she is beautiful. She is a daughter of Aphrodite. She is emotional. Her biggest strength is her beauty and her power of love, but ...more

Sorry, guys, but reconsider everything that she did and then try to still hate her. Without Piper, the quest would have been over in the first book. Without her charmspeak, Jason and Leo would have killed each other near the start. Remember that? Yeah. She saved them from Khione (apologies for my spelling there) too. You're all hating on her for being smitten for Jason, which is slightly hypocritical of you guys because it's no different to Percabeth, and yet that is classed as cute (and yes, I ship that too). Piper's charmspeak may just seem like some pretty girly power to some, but if you thing about the lives it saved and the impact those deaths would have had on the quest, she's invaluable. And to put it all into perspective: you may call Jason or Percy or one of the others the most powerful, but if Piper wasn't there then they would all be dead and unable to use them powers. She is the only one of the seven who cannot be manipulated like that. So now are you still thinking she's ...more

I really like Piper. She does not have the most flashy powers but they are formidable. She used her powers to force three Eidolon who possessed Percy, Jason, and Leo to abandon those bodies and to never possess anyone in their crew ever; making the sware on the River Styx. She also used her power to put Gaia to sleep. She is not a fighter. But she does what she can and I respect that.

SHE PUT A PRIMORDIAL GODDESS TO SLEEP! WITHOUT THAT EVERYONE WOULD HAVE DIED! THE PROPHECY SAYS THAT THE GAIA WOULD FALL TO EITHER JASON OR LEO, BUT PIPER MADE IT POSSIBLE, BY PUTTING GAIA TO SLEEP! ALSO SHE WOKE UP A MACHINE (that is impossible)! SHE IS SO STRONG SHE COULD DEFEAT THE GODS SINGLE HANDEDLY IF SHE WANTED TO! AND IF SHE WANTED TO PROVE THAT SHE DEFEATED, KHIONE, A GODESS.
EVEN PERCY, NICO, JASON, THALIA, FRANK, REYNA, ANNABETH AND LEO WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DEFEAT A PRIMORDIAL TOGETHER, EVEN IF THEY HAD THE HELP OF A GOD AND LEO'S INVENTIONS.

12 Bianca di Angelo

Even though she doesn't have many feats, Hades himself stated that she would be preferable over Nico if she were alive. That's gotta count for something - PineconeFace

First I thought Bianca betrayed Nico, but then I realized it was for his own good. If Bianca was still alive, everything would have been different. - Mayachen2006

Love how her little brother is second on this list with 18% and she is down here without even 1 percent

She doesn't do much, but I still like her because she lives up her life...sorta...even though she is a child of Hades...don't forget DEATH! SRY BIANCA - parkl911

Every hero I guess. I mean it's their job to protect he did the right thing. Thanks to him Percy is still alive - feena

Rip love you beckondorf

Awesome blacksmith and died for honor

Rainstar

Think about it, Percy wouldn't be alive if it weren't for this guy. Pretty much no one would. By blowing up that ship of monsters, he saved almost everyone's lives. Sure, some deaths couldn't be prevented, but this guy was a huge hero.

Go Charlie!

15 Hercules

Hercules if we go by the powers of the big three being the son of Zeus gives him aerokinsis, electrokinises and his own immense strength. If we are only following the books everything Percy has done so far Hercules has already done and more. It was mentioned that Hercules has a great publicist meaning the mortals will never forget him and his Greek/roman counterparts do not cause major personality changes. If it was a fight between the children of the big three and we removed Hercules immortality Hercules would win because of his vast knowledge and skills as a fighter and his immense strength. We can't forget he has beaten Ares, wounded Hera and hades, wrestled and defeated Thanatos just to name a few so let's not belittle the lion of Olympus

I just want to point out the fact that it says in HOO that as the god of strength he lost all abilities as a child of Zeus and I also want to add in the fact that Hercules doesn't have any real close combat skills and literally everything He's accomplished is through super strength and his Dad saving his ass

I can't believe someone said Hercules has no real combat experience, it's said he's the hand to hand combatant in Greek history and the greatest wrestler plus he's got boxing that he invented with wrestling called pankration

Hercules is last. He might be ok strong, but he killed his family. I hate the children of zeus or jupiter. They all think that they are so great

He is awesome yeah but about those music powers, he said himself he's almost only music talent is that... OMGS I don't know what it is in English. Oops... But yeah Will is great but Nico is the most awesome.

Superb healer and his music talents!

SOLANGELO. HE HAS NICO'S HELP SO DOUBLE THE POWER.

17 Achilles

Hercules is an ungrateful & conceited bastard. Achilles is better than Herc!

After Hercules he is the most strongest.

This guy was literally called the greatest hero to ever live, which means greater than Hercules, Perseus, Theseus just to name a few. with his blessing of Achilles no-one can harm him unless they know about his heel. adding his superior battle strategy and skill he is almost invincible. plus you don't get called the greatest hero ever for nothing.

Bruh this dude is the bes warrior in the liliad and he was invincible everywhere except for his heel and he had enhanced strength speed etc I think he should be at least second

18 Chrysaor

Percy is number 1 and this guy probably won't be because he was only there for a short while.but in mark of Athena he was far superior to Percy. His sword fighting was shown to be much better than Percy or Jason.he as a son of Poseidon was able to bring water out of Percy's control completely.percy couldn't move water because of chrysaors powers and he also disarmed Percy quicker than anyone ever has. Percy wasn't able to even scratch the guy.

19 Drew Tanaka

I don't understand people who like her just because they don't like piper? Piper wasn't exactly evil and yeah, charmspeak seems like it's kind of girly and boring but that doesn't mean it wasnt helpful. If Piper hadn't been there so many of them would be dead and the mission would never have been complete, and yeah she had her faults but so did all the characters. Frank was awful to Leo for all of MoA and he doesn't get nearly as much hate (not that he deserves it) and Drew was just controlling and cruel, I don't see why she would be better than Piper - pjo

Why is she on here? Lol.
