Top 10 Best Greek Gods

The Top Ten
1 Poseidon - God of the Sea, Earthquakes and Horses

Poseidon is not the most powerful god in my opinion as he is (again, in my opinion) essentielly equal to his brother Zeus. However, he is the god over the most versatile and beautiful element. He is the god of life, to a certain extent, as he is the lord of all water which is the most vital element in a living organism. He is also a very relatable god, given the fact that he is constantly the second best, always being compared to Zeus and Hades and always being "the middle child". So with all of this in mind, I cast my vote to Poseidon, the god of the sea, rivers, storms, earthquakes and horses.

Poseidon, overall, is probably the most strongest god between his siblings. The only gods that might be stronger than him are Chaos and Destiny. Chaos created the Earth to amuse himself. Destiny is one of the first gods of creation. If Zeus weren't king of Olympus and contain the power to strip immortality, then Poseidon would 100% overpower Zeus. Poseidon is the god of Sea, Earthquakes, and Horses, and Zeus is the god of thunderstorms and lightning. The sea is probably more stronger than thunderstorms, and Earthquakes could do a lot of damage, as where lighting could just zap you. This makes Poseidon worthy of being the strongest Olympian God of all time.

Gods! Poseidon is the strongest, Zeus is king but being king doesn't mean he is strongest. Zeus only became king because he defeated Kronos, Poseidon could have but he was inside Kronos' stomach while Zeus was outside. Poseidon can control the seas, and can create storms, which is kind of Zeus' domain cause it is in the sky, and make earthquakes which happens on earth which is like Hades' domain. Which means he can control his own domain, plus a tiny bit of Hades and Zeus' domain, which makes him stronger. Athena is the wisest though. Aphrodite might be strong because she comes from Uranus, who is a primordial, primordials are stronger than gods and titans combined.

Think about it. If you were a half-blood who ACTUALLY attended Camp half-blood, or Camp Jupiter and you were a son of Poseidon. And your personal weapon was a TRIDENT you can control ANYTHING! You can control the waters and oceans with your trident, you can slam the trident to the ground and cause a huge earthquake, you can cause violent storms, and communicate with pegasi and horses! You can cause a huge wave and surf it with your bare feet. Besides I think Zeus is a jerk, he is always grumpy and selfish and doesn't give second chances. But Poseidon on the other hand, he is loyal and nice. His children fight well to defend others and worry about their friends more than themselves. They can also be great leaders, and this is why I think Poseidon is the boss.

2 Zeus - God of the Sky and Thunder

It was said in the Iliad that if all the gods and goddesses combined had a rope and tried to pull Zeus down, he could pull them up. Zeus is more powerful than all other gods combined. He was also the original, and I consider him to be the real eldest child of Kronos and Rhea, seeing as how all the others were swallowed at birth, and were only freed from Kronos when Zeus saved them. Zeus has proved himself to be intelligent, funny, kind, fearsome, powerful, and respectable. He occasionally does unfair things because they suit him, but he is the only thing really holding Olympus together.

Zeus single handedly killed Cronus, a Titan, freeing all the Gods and Goddesses. Also he killed Typhon, which was said to be the strongest of the Titans. Also let's not forget that one tie when the son of Apollo almost doomed the world, and Zeus one shot killed him with his thunderbolt (CRITICAL). He also had to grow up with only a mother, whom wasn't battle trained. So he had to train himself. And I agree with all those people that said it should be Zeus instead of Poseidon. Poseidon (No offense) isn't that powerful of a god. And he technically can't control the water very well without having to hit the floor. Also Poseidon seems to only being voted because of Percy Jackson... get over yourselves and actually read about real Greek Mythology.

The only reason Poseidon is above Zeus is because of Percy Jackson... I mean seriously, Zeus is WAY more powerful. Also, to reply to one of the Poseidon voters, Poseidon was never chosen king. They drew lots and Zeus was chosen... So Poseidon was chosen as the sea god. And he did not give his throne to Zeus, as he never had one.

Zeus singlehandedly dethroned Kronos, and was the most powerful of all the Greek gods. And LOOK AT ZEUS'S CHILDREN! Hercules, Jason, Perseus, and MANY MORE! All of the greatest heroes were Zeus's children! (Please do not include Percy Jackson since he is not really a figure from Greek mythology but from a fictional story).

Zeus controls weather, the sky, thunder, lightning, and storms! His lightning bolt is the most powerful of the godly weapons!

Just because of PJ, people shouldn't vote for Poseidon! Actually THINK about real Greek mythology, and you will see why Zeus is the best.

Zeus is important because he is the king of the gods. According to Greek myth, Zeus was the god of the sky, and many ancient Greeks thought Zeus could control natural phenomena, such as controlling the weather and throwing lightning bolts at his enemies. Zeus is the leader of the gods, but he did not attain this position because he was more powerful than Poseidon. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades drew lots to decide who would be the new ruler after defeating the Titans and Cronus. People say Poseidon is the best only because of the Percy Jackson series.

3 Athena - Goddess of Wisdom

Athena is awesome. She's the goddess of warfare, wisdom, and crafts. The thing about her is once she comes up with a strategy to destroy you, it will not fail. She is a powerful goddess, and a terrible enemy.

Athena is wise and courageous. She is fair and cool headed. And she doesn't just have a brain. She is also a great fighter and strategist. She always wears battle armor and is very good with the spear.
I like Poseidon, but Ares? He was a cowardly, cruel, violent, worthless god. Get your fact straight!
Zeus constantly flirted with other women when he was married. And he took all of the universe, making his brothers take the sea and the underworld. And you, who said that Hephaestus was ugly? Like that mattered! Appearances don't matter. You would have gotten along well with Hera. She tossed Hephaestus off a mountaintop and crippled him just because he was ugly.

She is the ultimate independent, intelligent woman. She is wise but ruthless in battle, making her a terrible enemy to have. Others might make mistakes because of anger, but Athena would formulate a plan to bring you down, one that would not fail. Her Roman counterpart, Minerva, is more of the goddess of crafts. The part of Athena pertaining to war is pretty much erased, which erases a part of her personality. I think Athena's Roman counterpart is a good example of how good Roman women were supposed to behave compared to Athena, which is what every girl is or hopes to be on the inside.

I just think athena is so cool. She is the goddess of wisdom meaning she could probably outsmart the rest of the others. Not only is she smart but she can fight, which is just badass. If you think about it athena could probably beat all the other gods in war maybe except Nike because you know goddess of victory and stuff, with her strategic planning and other stuff. Can you see her tricking people into using their own powers against themselves. Not only this, but Athena is portrayed as confident and she doesn't new a man by her side and I like how she doesn't come off as too emotional.

4 Hades - God of the Underworld

Simple. Despite being God of the Underworld, he is the most fair and hardworking. He deserves Employee of the Day, maybe Employee of the Century? Era?

He is not an evil god, that is what people get messed up when they picture Hades. His evil reputation only came about because of Hollywood associating death with evil, not because that is his actual personality. Death is a part of life, so live with it. Also, he is the god of the DEAD, not god of Death (that's Thanatos). He was the eldest son of Kronos and Rhea, so in reality he should have gotten the throne of Olympus for himself. He is god of the Dead, that gives him quite an advantage, because he has a standing army that is endless and can never end. He is actually not a cruel god, and he is even stated in mythology to have a better sense of justice than his bratty little brother Zeus does. The only thing he really did bad in mythology, was to kidnap Persephone, on the suggestion of his brother Zeus, who was her FATHER. That is not even as bad as some of the things the other gods did, and Persephone ended up being happy there. He was also one of the most faithful gods in Greek ...more

My vote goes to Hades because unlike every other Olympian God or Goddess in Greek mythology Hades has always done his job. While he's certainly not the most generous, beautiful, or kind God he has always been overridingly fair. He also (ironically) has a much better track record on sparing human lives. He even has the most responsibilities out of any Olympian: like keeping the enemies of the gods locked up managing the traffic, afterlife, and rebirth of the dead, and keeps all of the most unruly minor gods in check. Despite all of these good qualities Hades the oldest brother got the worst lot in life but never complains. He really should have been king of Olympus.

Hades isn't really bad. It wasn't his fault he had to rule the dead. The big three drew straws to see who got each realm. Hades just happend to draw the one for the underworld. He doesn't choose who goes to Elysium, The Fields of Punishment, or the Fields of Ashpodal. Besides I'd rather vote Hades than Zeus. If you've ever read the Last Olympian, I recall Zeus killed Hades' children's mother. I call that rude. And if you really think about it, Hades is the most powerful of the big three. And he did the most dangerous part of the titan war. He had to sneak past their father Kronos without getting sliced by his scythe and destroy the extra weapons. Plus Hades can control the dead. Can any other God except Thanatos do that? I didn't think so. Here's another cool thing that may freak people out: Hades' mere presence can drive a person insane. Isn't that awesome?

5 Apollo - God of Light and the Sun

Apollo is the god of so many things, and one of the most worshipped of all the gods, I don't think any god could beat him in a fight.

If you think Poseidon is the most powerful, think about this: Poseidon is extremely powerful. Even more than Zeus I think (he does not make rash decisions or is impulsive). But Apollo can beat Poseidon if he really wanted to. Water is evaporated BY THE SUN. Everyone thinks Poseidon is more powerful because he's part of "the Big Three" or whatever. But truth is, Apollo can eliminate Poseidon's whole element! That's pretty dang powerful. So don't be a Zeus, think about who you vote for, and if you think about it, Apollo is on top.

He is the most intelligent of the Greek gods and he represents the typical ideal Greek man. Certainly not as powerful as Zeus, he is, however, the second most worshipped god (after Zeus), and has more temples, more oracles, and more offerings than any other next to his father. Finally, he is the most relatable god.

Apollo is my favorite because he is the god of the SUN people he could burn them to Ashes but he would have a good fight with Hades.

6 Ares - God of War

Easy decision in terms of being a best god. Ares favored the underdogs of the Trojan war unlike the rest of the gods, and while Athena was a much better strategist, and was on the winning side, Ares on his own was unbeatable in hand to hand combat. He was a bloodthirsty savage when fighting and was easily angered, but he wasn't dumb by any means. He is considered to be a picture perfect soldier and was worshipped by the Spartans, the most skilled soldiers in history. I don't know why poseidon has so many votes, he just hides with the fish while Ares is battling for days at a time.

The god of war can not be controlled. He is downright the best of the god. May not be the most powerful, but he is awesome. He has to have the best power out of all the Greek gods.

He isn't above Athena even though Sparta was better than Athens, it lasted longer, was in the alliance that crushed them and saved Greece by sending those 300 Spartans.

Remember this is power, not personality. We can all agree that Ares isn't the sweetest person around, However, he is extremely powerful and is physically the strongest Olympian.

7 Artemis - Goddess of the Hunt, Forests and Hills, the Moon

Artemis is one of my favorite goddesses. First of all, she is an eternal maiden and swore off men. Wise choice. Second, she isn't flashy or bright like her brother Apollo. While Apollo looks for lovers and flirts with them, Artemis keeps to herself. She has a type of cold regalness that definitely resembles a powerful goddess. Love finds her even when she doesn't look for it. She's beautiful, but she doesn't particularly care about it, her beauty is just natural. I like that about her. She treats her followers (The Hunters of Artemis) very well. She doesn't empathize with the power she has over them, she sees them as equals, as sisters. Lastly, I would just like to point out that Artemis was born first and aided in the birth of her brother, Phoebus Apollo. Like I said before, Apollo deliberately flirts with women, he's flashy and bright, while Artemis' beauty comes naturally. Apollo is overrated, Artemis is not. Artemis is the best goddess, the wisest (except for Athena, who is my ...more

In my opinion Artemis is the most "Amazing and Proper goddess like Athena". Artemis was a very beautiful tall and strong goddess who can defend herself. She even helped her mother Leto give birth to her twin brother Apollo. Artemis even APPEALED to Zeus which is pretty boss. Athena and Artemis are both very similiar Goddesses they also do not like Men because she was a virgin goddess like Athena and Hestia. Artemis did not like the idea of showing of her body or her beauty because she encourages Girls that they do not need Men to save them that's why I think she is strong and powerful.

OK, First of all I am just going to say why at the time I am writing this is Artemis 7 when Apollo is 5!?! I mean, Artemis helped GIVE BIRTH to Apollo. Plus, Apollo is shy and her arrows kill painlessly and swiftly while his cause sickness. If you have an antidote he can hardly do anything. So Artemis should AT LEAST be ahead of Apollo. Plus in case you haven't noticed right now the top 5 are ALL men. SO if that is a reason that is wrong. Plus she is like the goddess of the moon which makes night like her realm. (Also her brother Apollo is driving that Sun Chariot all day and can't enjoy his part of the day, so Artemis would be like, "sorry bro you can't enjoy the night.") She is Goddess of the hunt and for everyone who voted for Nemesis, change your vote to Artemis because if you know about Actaceon then you know she got total revenge on him for looking at her naked body and he became a stag and was chased by his own hunting dogs. So she has revenge. She is a very fierce fighter and ...more

Artemis is the best god because she can make all the male gods run for their mommies. She also has a long range weapon which is the smartest weapon because you don't have to get up close and personal. Also if you are really good at using a bow and arrow (which she is) you can hit people from far away. I know Apollo is also good but he is to stuck up and singing all the time to actually be good. Artemis also doesn't need a boy to tie her down. GIRL POWER!

8 Hephaestus - God of Technology, Blacksmiths, Craftsmen, Artisans and Volcanoes Fire

Hephaestus is amazing even though people say he looks ugly and his wife Aphrodite says he is ugly as well, he is stil the best God because he is good at fixing things and he can make the best armor. He is the God of volcano fire though I just think fire, and fire would be an amazing time thing to control if you were a demigod that is a son of Hephaestus. Vote for Hephaestus and secondly vote for Poseidon he is great as well to!

Totally boss! He created the sun, so everyone would be in eternal darkness if it weren't for him! He also made all ares's weapons, so what would ares be the god of without weapons. Also, he created Apollo's and Apollo's bows and arrows! These gods wouldn't have anything without him!

Hephaestus... I feel sorry for him. Despite of being very talented Blacksmith, he was resented by his family just because of his appearance. His mother and wife abandoned him. But when Hera got sick, Hephaestus came to look after her and still no one mentioned about it. No fair! And also, Hera can be the worst goddess for me. She literally blamed all of the kicking-Hephaestus-out-of-Mount Olympus thingy on Zeus. (I don't like Zeus either) But still that is not something related to Hephaestus. So sorry for Hephaestus...

Hephaestus is a really good god because he can build anything with the palms of his hands. I also go by this quote for Heaphaestus"If you can build things with your bare hands you could rule the world" and that's what I think Hepheastus strives for or rules on.

9 Aphrodite - Goddess of Love, Lust and Beauty

Fun fact: Aphrodite was originally a goddess of love and war (I just imagine an armoured goddess ready for battle giving you dating advice). This wasn't a widespread belief about her though - it was even referenced in the Iliad where Zeus goes out of his way to say that Aphrodite doesn't belong on the battlefield (ie. isn't a war goddess).

So she outgrew her war phase and she found a much better weapon, lust. Ever wonder why Zeus can't keep it in his pants; why so many gods have way too many illegitimate children - that is, in part, due to Aphrodite's influence. It got so bad that one time Zeus made her fall in love with a random farmer as revenge - this backfired as their son was Aeneas, an ancestor to the founders of Rome (you know, the guys that defeated Greece and "borrowed" all their gods).

People need to give Aphrodite some credit. She just plays the long game.

Aphrodite is absolutely the best, she must be number one. Without her there would be no love in the world and without love there will only be hatred and war. If that happens many will suffer. She is the reason we love our families and friends, she is the reason that our hearts are not black and the reason this world is full of beauty and wonder.

I have to say that Aphrodite is one of my favorites. First of all, in most myths she's older than all of the Olympian gods, even the first six siblings. She's love and beauty and sexuality at its finest. Basically, all of the most persuasive human urges, she controls that. She's not AS MUCH of a slut as Zeus or Poseidon. She's the embodiment of love and strong emotions like it, her power could damage you way more than any other just because she takes you down from the inside. On the outside, not much of a threat, but hey, if you read any of the epics, you'll know she's played a major part in spurring some dramatic human wars.

I could do without the lust aspect love is not the same thing as lust love is unconditional doesn't judge and doesn't get jealous also compassion is the more essential aspect of love . Can charm speak probably starter a bar fight over her beauty lol. Could turn enemies against each other. The eyes of the body see lust / a woman's boob no love has no conditions but when you let your emotions get the best of you that is when you commit lust . Not much else on her

10 Hermes - Messenger of the Gods, God of Commerce, Thieves, Travelers, Sports, and Border Crossings

Hermes moves so fast he would be across the universe before you even begin to blink, if you try to fight this guy it's game over, he delivers billions of punches on you in seconds. He is pretty much the Flash made into a Greek God. He could pretty much defeat every god before they even know he is taking down their relatives. He moves between dimensions, as he has been in the underworld and Olympus as well. Just got a check for a million dollars? No you didn't cause Hermes just ran by and made it his. Nobody stands a chance against a dimension jumping, super speed, theif, juggernaut, god.

Hermes/Mercury is the best because while all the other gods bicker about power, love, and vanity, and screw around with mortals lives, Hermes just does his job and has fun. Oh, and by the way his job is carrying souls to the underworld. He is the Grim Reaper with more swag and better hair. Also, his wife is the super nutty goddess of magic, Hecate. I mean, come on, why is this guy not #1?

Hermes is awesome he's the god of thieves and he's probaly faster than the flash and quicksilver Combined also who wouldn't want to be able to travel through dimensions. But I like his roman name better

VOTE HERMES/MERCURY he's AWESOME!

He's basically the Flash of greek mythology, and that's pretty damn cool in my book. He's also likely been in more stories than any other god or goddess acting as the communication between them. All hail the messendger.

The Contenders
11 Hera - Goddess of Women and Marriage

Hera was, in fact, a very clever woman who learned one important thing. That the way to get revenge, is to damage the people that the offender loves first. In this way, it tortures them endlessly with guilt and pain, until the point that they beg you to stop and to just kill them. Just take them and leave the loved ones alone. However, you refuse as to prolong the torture. As Zeus cheated on Hera so many times, she learned that this was an excellent way to get back at him. It is cruel, vengeful, and oftentimes Zeus didn't cheat again for a LONG LONG while. But men are men. So he once again cheated, and she cursed him with this torture for all time. Hera is cruel, yes, but she also just wanted to teach him a lesson, and this seemed to be the only way it would get through his head.

Queen of the Gods. She deserve to be ranked higher. During the Trojan War, Hera boxed Artemis' ear with a smile on her face. In the Indian War (Dionysiaca by Nonnus) she sent the Goddess of Moon & Archery to the ground with just one blow (she also destroyed her bow). And guess what, Artemis went crying to Zeus after Hera beat her up. Let's not forget that she raised a thunderstorm at the sea that nearly killed the most iconic demigod, Heracles if Zeus didn't stop Hera at last minute. Most people think she's just the goddess of Marriage and can't do nothing much other than blessing & cursing marriages but think again, she killed 2 giants during the Gigantomachy (Harpolykos & Phoitos) it was not mentioned in literature but seen in an ancient Greek vase that is currently located in Antikennsamlung, Berlin.

Hera staged multiple rebellions against her husband, Zeus. She spent her free time making her husband's adulterous love life a nightmare. She was the only goddess known to have stood up to the literal King of Gods. She was like, yeah nah, this boy needs a whooping - get the titans on speed dial, we staging a rebellion.

Bless her soul.

Sure, Hera may hay outdated family principles, but as do most gods and goddesses. And do NOT tell me you wouldn't hate the kids of your husband's ex-lovers. Maybe you wouldn't try to kill them, but it's so easy for a goddess to kill people. It's so easy to give in to temptation when you can control the world. Being the queen of godesses is pretty bad ass to me.

12 Nike - Goddess of Victory

Just saying, if you're going to vote for Nike, you should probably vote for Athena instead (just my opinion), because Athena is Nike's best friend and Nike follows her everywhere. Then you can have a powerful goddess and victory on your side for the price of one. Also, Nike, the shoe brand has her name not because she's the goddess of shoes (I honestly can see why people might think that) but because they want people to think their shoes will help you win and perform better- winning=victory=Nike.

Nike is the goddes of victory without her the gods could not win any battle nor famous mortals like Hercules or the crew of the odyssey without her we would never be able to win. As for her with Athena, Athena was the Greeks source of power so it makes sense since Nike allows athena to "win" with the greeeks knowledge.

Bruh... In my opinion Nike should be at the very top. The only reason gods/goddesses like Zeus, Apollo, and Athena are on top is because they are more well known, and not many people have heard of the goddess Nike.

What's better then having the goddess of victory on your side? I wouldn't make her angry otherwise in a fight... Oh oh!

13 Cronus - God of Time

Oh my word! Since when has Cronus been a god! Chronus is the god...while CRONUS is the titan! Whoever said "Don't get mixed up with the titan Chronos They're spelled differently, but anyways Cronus could freeze time, and kill his enemy faster than they could blink! " please learn your facts. Not trying to be rude but seriously that is false information!

This is the titan Cronus (also spelled Cronos or Kronos), Chronos is the time god. Either way, he is awesome. Cronus singlehandedly overthrew Uranus, but it took Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades together to overthrow Cronus.

Don't get mixed up with the titan Chronos They're spelled differently, but anyways Cronus could freeze time, and kill his enemy faster than they could blink!

Cronus was not a god, he was a Titan, father of Zeus and other Olympians dimwits...

14 Helios - God of the Sun

He was nice, you know? He didn't support Kronos when Zeus attacked because he knew Kronos was evil. He also just minded his own buisness and was a pretty nice guy.

He is so fit he has blonde hair and blue eyes. He is always smiling and how cool is it to be able to change the weather and mess with the elements so cool

Helios is amazing! he can kill any god with the power of the sun he can blind them and then set them on fire the only reason he died in god of war was because he was wounded and he couldn't stand up helios is AMAZING

Helios is to by final episode 5 season to Xena princess warrior. Helios is big mythology male. Helios is blond hair and shaine eyes, he is red jacket.

15 Dionysus - God of Wine, Theatre and Ecstasy

I'm kind of pissed off that everyone is judging him based on the Percy Jackson series. Like really. He can turn coke into fanta? That's ridiculous modern stuff. The Ancient Greek Gods are ANCIENT.

Dionysus is the best. He married that great goddess ariadne. I don't like the whole thing with prosymnus but he should be number 1. He is way better than zeus. He is always based off of Percy Jackson. He is as some. No doubt

I'am voting for the most richest god from all the Greek gods and goddess. Go Dionysus!

Makes great wine and allows you to have the "gold touch".

16 Demeter - Goddess of Crops and Fruit

Demeter (Ceres in Roman version), sure knows how kick yo' butt! She rescued her beloved daughter Persephone from the grasp of that creep Hades. During her quest to find her daughter she came across a king and queen (by that time Demeter morphed into an old woman). The kind couple saw how worn out Old lady Demeter was and took care of her for a couple of days.
The queen had a baby son, and Old lady Demeter offered to mind him for the queen (even Queens need breaks), and placed him in the fire (don't worry, this didn't hurt the child as Demeter used her magical powers to make sure the fire didn't burn through the boy). Her method was that because the King and Queen showed her great hospitality, she decided to repay them by making their baby son grow up to be a powerful hero.

Guys, she is the eldest goddess that still has a throne. She is the goddess of nature, the earth, seasons, agriculture and harvest. She could defeat the other godsin a thousand ways without even blinking, she could(ready for this) starve them, strangle them with vines, send them to the core of the earth, bury them and suffocate them, she could poison them with plants, slice them up with her golden swords and scythe, she could roast them with her dragons, send animals to destroy, and so much more! She is MUCH more powerful than people think.

She nearly killed the entire population of the Earth when Persephone was kidnapped by Hades. She cause the entire Earth to become famine and forbid the Earth from bearing it's fruit.

She should definitely be higher! She is responsible for the fruit and vegetables you eat! And if you really think about it, she is the reason behind greek myths. We would never have records of them without paper, which comes from trees

17 Pan - God of Nature, the Wild, Shepherds, Flocks, Goats, of Mountain Wilds

Pan imagine a world without him. No animals none of them are unique but Pan he is what makes every single animal unique to us from dogs, to cats, to sea creatures we don't now exist all come from Pan God of nature.

He is one of the very few gods that are actually decent, no, he is more than decent, he is so COOL! I cried at his death and I not ashamed of it. ANIMALS RULE!

Pan is great god to force, and mutant to people and goat foot, devil fire body, big tail and Pan is great power.

Half-goat, half-man. Also having the patience to tend wild animals to be tame, not too bad. Just to add... He was good looking

18 Persephone - Goddess of Vegetation

She was a young goddess - no more than the nymphs she used to hang out with. Then, Hades married her and she expertly stepped up to being the queen and part ruler of the underworld!

Persephone is the Queen of the Dead and Lady of the Seasons because she is Demeter and Zeus's daughter, the former being responsible of growth of grain and primitive law giving..

She actually had significant power in the Underworld and made some very important decisions.

She is the deepest goddess... Mystical, insighfull, beautiful, with an inner power, that is not visible superficially...

19 Hestia - Goddess of the Hearth, Architecture, and the Right Ordering of Domesticity, the Family and the State

She is the goddess of your home, your family, and architecture. If she so chose to, though it is unlikely, she could either crumble your home or make the architecture you are standing under fall apart on top of you. She could possibly rearrange your family. She also has some power over Poseidon and Apollo, past suitors before her oath of virginity. Poseidon being the most ranked powerful god on this site, definitely is a little intimidating. Apollo being the sun god and riding the sun chariot, he could refuse to ride out at sunset and cause us to die, just because he is asked by hesitation, if she was angry or spiteful for some reason. Hestia being the kindest goddess has earned the trust and probably some favors from the rest of them.

Hestia was the last Olympian, how could we forget that? I think she is quite warm and comfortable. For she is the goddess of hearth. To add to it, when she met Percy Jackson, she didn't treat him like other gods (Athena, Ares, Zeus etc.) and was kind even to a mortal like Rachel Elizabeth Dare. Despite of being the eldest child of Rhea and Kronos, she gave up her seat to Dionysus just to stop a civil war among gods. She knew people will forget her if she did that, but still, just for peace she did that and that's really impressive!

Hestia is the best but does not boast about it she prefers to stay quiet and let others be in the limelight... She even gave up her throne to Dionysus so that she could avoid a civil war among the god...she is probably the only Greek god/goddess who is selfless and does not have a huge ego... I think she deserves more love and attention from us

Hestia is the eldest of the gods, and gave up her throne to Dionysus to keep her family from quarreling. While there are no important myths about her, she is still one of the most powerful characters in myth.

20 Thanatos - God of Death

Just what I thought the power of death is a powerful and strongest ability but I also agree with time god time is also a powerful and strongest ability.

This minor god is also one of the most powerful. Everyone will eventually lose to him, immortal or mortal. Death is the Ultimate Winner.

Thanatos is the god of death and death trumps everything but life. So theoretically death is like, the second stronegst god. Just because zues if the dad of gods doesn't mean he can't be killed. Death can only be defeated if it is turned to life so he can only be defeated by the god of life. Death begets death begets death. GOD OF DEATH RULES!

He's the ancient grim reaper. Jades might rule the after life, but where do you think he owes credit too? For creating death

21 Hecate - Goddess of Magic and Witchcraft

Hecate is the goddess of magic, crossroads, ghosts, and necromancy. However, she was also given sway over a great number of other aspects. In some cases she is a Titan but it depends on the source material.
Zeus gave her control over the realms of the sky, seas and the earth (as shown in the Theogony by Hesiod), while also being thought of as a chthonic (or underground/underworld) goddess. This means she holds power over Zeus', Poseidon's AND Hades' realms.
Also, being a triple goddess means she has three aspects, sometimes thought to be Selene, goddess of the moon, Artemis, goddess of the hunt and nature, and Persephone, goddess of spring and the underworld.

How is she not at least top 10?! She is not only the goddess of magic, but she's also the goddess of choices and ghosts. She helps Hades with the spirits of the dead, and she could easily defeat most of the "Most powerful" gods that these idiots have voted up. She also controls the mist, and could fool almost any god or goddess in any way. Plus, she has torches, scary dogs, and knives. Also, most modern-day Pagans worship her, because Zeus is a useless womanizer, Poseidon does not care about anything but the sea, Hades probably hasn't seen the sun in centuries, much less know about our present day world. as for the goddesses, most of them would rule Olympus better than any god. personally, I vote for Hera, Hecate, Athena, Aphrodite, Demeter, Gaea, and Hestia to be in charge together. with Hera's and Athena's logic, mixed with Aphrodite's and Hestia's kindness and emotion, plus Hecate's and Gaea's pure power and Demeter's caring nature, there is no way anyone could run things better.

How could anyone skip Hecate? She is the most interesting out of all Greek deities. She is goddess of necromancy and magic. She has also been described as the Greek Goddess of crossroads; a truly iconic occult figure who bears torches to help illuminate the shadows. She helped in locating Persopheone when she had been lost to the underworld. Her origins might even be far more ancient than that of the other gods and older than some titans as well.

" Hecate is easily the best, cause she is THE TITANESS/GODDESS OF MAGIC! Sure, she was a Titan, but if there is no Hecate, who controls magic? She is kind ( alright, sometimes ). She helped Demeter find Persephone, and she works with Hades, as she is also the Titaness of ghosts. Get rid of Hera, and make Hecate the Queen of the Gods/Titans!

22 Nyx - Goddess of the Night

Nyx is the goddess of the night, which is one of the reasons I voted for her. Night is my favourite domain, so that's why I voted for Nyx(and Artemis.) She's also really pretty and she's a primordial goddess, so she's pretty strong. She was old before the titans were infants. Technically, she isn't the goddess of night. She is night. So, she's pretty bad ass. Period.

She was one of the first goddesses in Greek myths but sadly she doesn't appear in many Greek tales but also she should be higher ranked!

Nyx was born before Gaia and is the true concept of darkness. From Nyx and Chaos came Akhlys the goddess of misery, older than Gaia.

The night is honestly beautiful. Mysterious and true darkness with some light from the stars. Nyx is awesome. Period.

23 Nemesis - Goddess of Revenge

Revenge is the best! Who doesn't love to get back at their enemies?

Nemesis isn't just revenge, she's also justice. The most important thing.

When someone does something bad to you, you need revenge. It's something you can't avoid.

Even though she is a revenge goddess, I love her. I want to be like her. GO NEMESIS!

Nemesis is not about anger or hate, she is about justice!

24 Gaia - Goddess of the Earth

Gaia is just awesome. Sorry, but she is the grandmother of Zeus, the Ultimate Goddess, the wife of Ouranos and Mother Earth! How can you beat that? Oh sure, Heroes of Olympus pass her off as a villain but she's still really cool. She's the mother of Cronos! You can't sideline that. She bore the Lord of Time! Come on!

Come on guys. The only reason all the gods exist is because of this god. She has the power to create and destroy worlds. She is Zeus' grandmother. She is as pretty as everk, and strong she has it all! 10/10

I have no idea why Gaia is this low. She is the mother of earth! without her there wouldn't be humans or gods or titans!

Gaia is not evil. She is Earth mother. Don't linger with Rick riordan...

25 Eros - God of Love

Everybody in the mythology is scared of Eros even the gods because he can shoot you with one of his arrows and you could fall in love with ANYONE or ANYTHING.

He was separated from Psyche and he deserves to be loved the way he lets others be.

Eros is Aphrodite's son and technically Cupid.

I'm in love so thank you Eros!
