Top Ten Best Rick Riordan 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.

Percy Jackson has done so much. He literally got his own series because of it. Also, I hate Jason.

No contest. Percy Jackson is the best.

The dude with Riptide is unstoppable. Go Percy.

Percy jackson started it all and he is just the best charcter out there fought ares killed luke
and is the only charcter that has a seires with 5 books

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).

Honestly, Percy honestly is a good character, but he never had to go through what Leo did. Even though Percy thought about sacrificing himself, Leo actually did it (and came back). Sure, Percy has powers over the sea, but that's common for sons of Poseidon - fire powers are rare, plus, Leo is awesome at mechanical stuff! Percy doesn't have that skill. And despite all his awesomeness, Leo had to endure even more pain, watching everyone with their girlfriends and boyfriends. He was single, and when he did find a girlfriend, she was literally supposed to fall in love with every boy she sees (and she even hated him at first! ). Leo is just so awesome like that.

Leo made the series funny, and he was always the character that made me laugh the most. He's always joking even though his past was so sad, and he literally says he kept moving from place to place to keep the pain away, but he's still the funniest, sweetest guy. TEAM LEO

All hands up for Leo Valdez. Definitely the best and enthusiastic character ever. Rick Riordan gave life to this character through an absolutely excellent sense of humour. Have any mechanical problem meet this guy and he'll know what to do!

3 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase

Percy would would be dead without her and she defeated arcane without any weapons at all and she did this all with a broken leg so bam

Annabeth is awesome she ran away at age 7 and survived she saw luke get killed with her own weapon made it through tartarus defeated arachnid fights another war and made it home in time for dinner so she's awesome!

Number 1 Annabeth
Number 2 Percy
Number 3 Thalia
Number 4 Nico
Number 5 Magnus
Number 6 Leo
Number 7 Jason
Number 8 Sadie
Number 9 Alex
Number 10 Frank

Annabeth Chase has saved Percy's life so many times. She ran away and battled monsters when she was 7. She survived Tartarus and defeated Arcane with no weapon and broken leg. She still believed there was good in Luke after all the things he'd done and she was right at the very end. She is the architect of Mount Olympus. She's smart,caring, kind, brave,etc. She is my all time favorite character of all time. Go wise girl!

4 Sadie Kane

I love Sadie she is so funny and witty. She technically dates anubis who is my favourite god and plus, the kane chronicles is my favourite book series

By far the funniest, quirkiest & most lovable of Riordan's characters

She's not afraid to speak her mind and she's able to cope with the fact that she has a double boyfriend which can be hard to deal with for us girls.

Sassy, quick-witted and smart. Classic Riordan.

5 Magnus Chase

Definitely a brilliant and refreshingly original new character - not as popular as percy, yet, but perce has had many more books to get into the fangirls. Magnus's new book will hopefully put him higher up, when it comes out! (Wish I hade two votes so I could vote for Leo - my other favorite character! )

A powerful character that has sense of humour, a bit stubborn but smart and inspiring at the same time. Deserves to be no. 1

Read to new book this character has so much personality. - francesco

He got big pp

6 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.

He's definitely my favorite character ever. He should honestly be higher on the list. He goes through so many hardships and pushes through no matter what. First his mother gets killed BY ZEUS then his memory is wiped and he gets put in Lotus Casino for hades knows how long AND has to deal with having romantic feelings towards Percy but not knowing what to do about it AND his sister dies AND Hades treats him like crap AND goes through TARTURAUS ALONE AND gets trapped in a jar AND is hated by pretty much everyone AND almost dies trying to get the Athena Statue back to camp and the list goes on. He in the end decides he won't let fear rule his life and stays at camp and winds up meeting his future boyfriend. THE END.

He's a better character than Percy in my opinion

Nico is great. So is Leo. They need to date.

He is the best character in all books I have read. He diserves the first spot. He is a strong demigod that has beem through a lot of brutal times in his life. And in the end the people that vote on this website say that he is what... Sxth. He is the best character. And he is strong, kind, helpful, awesome, unstopable, amazing, and a lot more then those. Nico Di Angelo is the BEST!

7 Carter Kane

He is way smarter than everybody else except annabeth. Plus, he has heightened abilities thanks to horus and can match percy in power.

8 Thalia Grace Thalia Grace

Favorite fictional character ever - PineconeFace

Totally awesome baddass! My #1 favorite character in the whole series

She's totalt BADASS! My all time favorite character!

9 Coach Gleeson Hedge

He needs to be higher cupcake...

10 Grover Underwood

How is he this low you guys, GROVER ROCKS! He is like the animal-rights activist of the group

Wow. A character that is not full of themselves. A rarity amongst Percy Jackson characters.

Grover is pretty great

The Contenders

11 Frank Zhang
12 Jason Grace Jason Grace

Honestly guys..Jason out of the top 10! YOU Gotta be kidding me..He is the joint strongest demigod in the series(Along with Percy).. Born to be a leader..His leading and military skills are second to one...Even when he was dying he saved his friends...And guys don't forget the fact that he saved Percy in the ocean...His wind manipulating and lightning powers just make him stronger...So In my opinion he's the best demigod there is!

13 Zia Rashid
14 Apollo

He might be arrogant and somewhat selfish but he still cares about his friends. (Trials of Apollo)

I wonder why he is so high. Don't get me wrong, I think he is actually great.

15 Alex Fierro

ALEX FIERRO IS AMAZING BEST CHARACTER EVER. She/he had a hard life, but is still an amazing person. She/he is funny, smart, sassy, sarcastic, and I ship FierroChase forever.

Alright. If I'm the only one here who read Hammer of Thor, u should know that Alex didn't have a death in her (his) family, yet had an abusive one, especially since her mother (Loki) only made it worse by opening their eyes to the Norse mythic world. Also anyone who can resist Loki's control to kill her is awesome. She deserves more credit than Piper and Walt and whole ton of others. Also, when Thor AND Halfborn Gunderson said that she/he was unmanly, she/he showed them that they were wrong. She is way more underrated than wut u might think.

Favorite charector! Thanks so much for representing the LGBTQ+ community!

Alex is the most dynamic and interesting character rick riordan has ever made and we still know very little about her, we know enough to give us a picture of what she is but she’s still shrouded in mystery. And I used she/her...oh well

Why is she so low, she's the sweetest and very badass, also with a sad past

Why is she so low?

17 Reyna Avila Ramirez-Arellano

Why, in the name of zeus, is she so low in the list?


18 Margaret McCaffrey


YEES I LOVE MEG! I think that Meg, Alex, Leo, and Sadie should all meet and be amazing together. And by the way, “Because my brother is Stoo-pid! ” Best quote ever! In case you couldn’t tell, I love Meg.

19 Bes

He sacrificed himself for the Kanes, that alone makes him one of the best characters-Therese Erlyn

20 Hearthstone

A deaf rune badass elf!

Really this guy had to suffer so much go through so much pain. Abusive parents, the death of his brother, running away from home, the thing with rune magic, returning back to the site of his childhood trauma and claiming the inheritance rune. He at least deserves 5th place.
P.S: I ship with Blitzen

I love him so much! Hearthstone has been through so much, but he always stayed strong. He’s my favorite character in the Magnus Chase series!

21 Piper McLean Piper McLean

What! Piper no good! She horrible, first on Worst Percy Jackson Characters. I don't think she should be on this list. - 766925

I personally love leo but piper is the one who stays cool when she was battling a giant Annabeth was shivering no offense to her but piper is such a reliable character you have to admit you can respect her

Piper is very tough, and witty.

A funny character

22 Will Solace

Solangelo for life

Obviously the best charector for the LGBTQ+ community!

23 Iapetus
24 Samirah al-Abbas
25 Blackjack
26 Sherman Yang

Who's sherman?

27 Mallory Keen

Mallory Keen. Need I say more?

28 Mrs. O'Leary

Best girl right here - idontreallycare

29 Bast

She is so good to the Kane's and she loves Sadie so much she should have a part in this! She is so cool and her skills in a fight are awesome!

30 Anubis

He's really cute

31 Luke Castellan Luke Castellan

How is he not on this list?

32 Tyson!! Where are you!
33 Blitzen

Funny, humorous, and an expert at fashion

34 Frederick Chase

He was willing to battle the Atlas to protect his daughter! He's mortal! He could have been killed easily, and he knew it, but he still battled a titan to protect and retrieve his daughter!

35 Chiron

He may not be people's favourite but why is he not on this list?!
