Top Ten Egyptian Gods and Goddesses

The Top Ten
1 Anubis

Anubis is the god of embalming and the dead. He has the head of a jackal. Jackals were often seen in cemeteries so people thought that Anubis watched over the dead. Anubis was the God who embalmed Osiris after he was killed by Set.

Since he is the god of death, he can always build an army of the dead, so he will be impossible to destroy. Most Egyptians die at 40 years old, so there are more and more soldiers coming in!

This guy is basically the Egyptian version of the grim reaper. Plus, he can summon an army of mummies and mummify the other gods so they can't touch him. They put him as the strongest god in Smite for a reason, you know.

2 Ra

Ra is considered to be the most powerful god. He could kill us if he wanted to as he controls the sun. He was said to be a match or stronger than Apophis, who was very powerful that no other god could defeat.

In the Kane Chronicles, it is told that with the power of Ra they only had a chance to defeat Apophis.

Ra is just pure awesomeness. He fights Apophis and just in case Apophis swallows him, then he just BLOWS the poor guy up. Plus, if he wants, then he could destroy the Earth by coming very close to us. Don't anger him or we'll all die.

3 Isis

I remember being so young I used to be in love with Egyptian mythology. I even thought I had some Egyptian pharaohs' blood, but it turned out I had blood from West Africa. I even like the book series The Kane Chronicles and my favorite show was Tutenstein. Anyway, Isis has to be my favorite Egyptian Goddess.

She brings Osiris back to life when her brother Set killed him. Isis is my Egyptian goddess.

How is Isis ranked so high? She should be past number ten. I know she can use trickery but consider this scenario: Put her and some random god like Horus into an arena. Next thing you know, Isis is in 100 pieces. Why do you guys think she is so powerful?

4 Horus

A badass in my opinion. Plus, if you read the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan, he was pretty cool in it.

Horus is incredible. Have you seen the power he has as a god of revenge? He's the best.

This god can overpower anyone. He's stronger than his uncle Set, whom he defeated.

5 Osiris

There are different stories about all these gods. In some stories, Isis was his wife, in others, his sister. Osiris can be mean and strict but think about how important he is. He has to judge thousands of spirits each day!

Without him, people would live forever.

6 Set

Literally, if Osiris, the king, can fall for his trick then you know he's a tricky customer. Also, he is the god of chaos, and I love all of the evil gods from any mythology.

He could make all of the gods die by starting a war. The god of evil could kill Ra and Horus at the same time. He is more powerful than Anubis too.

The God of Evil, ok, that just got an 80% chance of me loving him. What else? Oh yeah, he's the only god with the head of a non-real animal. 100% now!

7 Thoth

Originally a moon god, Thoth (or Djehuti) played an important role within the pantheon of Egyptian gods. He was known to be the god of magic, knowledge, wisdom, and writing, among a number of other aspects. He was often coined as the creator of hieroglyphics, contributing to his status also as the scribe of the gods.

He is also often associated with the progression of science, as well as architecture, including the pyramids. Together with Ma'at (the goddess of order and justice), he recorded the weight of a deceased person's soul against Ma'at's Feather of Truth, which determined the fate of the person's afterlife.

He is also often compared to the Greco-Roman god Hermes/Mercury, being considered one and the same, and has been associated with Hermes Trismegistus, the progenitor of Hermeticism.

8 Bastet

Bastet was a goddess in ancient Egyptian religion, worshiped as early as the 2nd Dynasty (2890 B.C.E.). As Bast, she was the goddess of warfare in Lower Egypt, the Nile River delta region, before the unification of the cultures of ancient Egypt.

Her name is also translated as Baast, Ubaste, and Baset.

9 Sehkmet
10 Bast

Cats were considered the most sacred animal of all in Egypt. Plus, given their cuteness, we should be worshipping them still!

Nimble, clever, and cool! What else do you need? Sign me up!

Cats were precious in Egypt. If you hurt one, you could be sentenced to death. Bast is nimble and quick.

The Contenders
11 Sobek

He should be the best really because he made the Nile River. Egyptians wouldn't be alive without him. Plus, he makes crops grow fertile and he is a crocodile.

Guys! He's a crocodile. No more needs to be said really. Don't we all agree? You just can't beat crocodiles.

12 Nephthys

Nephthys is so awesome! She is so nice and helpful, and controls rivers and water. So epic, right?!

13 Nut
14 Amun

Actually, I like that Amun is 16th as his name means hidden. So, he's hidden from people but for sure he's the most powerful and important on all lists possible. He was the first god that became close to a monotheistic God or Allah. He inspired Greek mythology which inspired Roman one. Amun is the GOD.

Although he just started as god of the unknown and air.

Amun-Ra is the equivalent of Zeus in Greek mythology. He is the Top Dog, the Big Cheese, the Main Man, the God of Gods.

15 Geb

Geb is the god of earth and livestock. Need I say more? Also, he's the ruler of earth.

16 Maat

Ma'at is the goddess of order and justice, plus the pharaohs worship her most, so why only the rank of nine?

Maat is the goddess of truth, order, and justice.

The Egyptians believed that if Ma'at didn't exist, the universe would sink into chaos!

17 Hathor

Hathor is underrated! She is the beautiful goddess of joy, women, and everything about femininity. She is one of the most important and powerful deities among the Ennead. She's Horus' wife after all.

18 Ptah

Chief god of Memphis, depicted in the form of a green mummy.

19 Apophis

He existed before even Ra and is the embodiment of total chaos.

20 Amun-Ra

Amun-Ra should be the best because it's the King of ALL GODS mixed with the god of the Sun, so he kicks ass.

21 Khonsu
22 Tefnut

She is amazing because she controls the moon and other cool things.

23 Bes

Why is he last? Bes is so much better than Sobek or Khonsu. Please, read the Kane Chronicles.

24 Khepri
25 Montu
