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.

No contest. Percy Jackson is the best.

Percy Jackson is the best - 766925

Truly is awesome

2 Leo Valdez Leo Valdez

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.

He sacrificed himself for the quest I cried at that part it was so sad even when I saw he came back to life

Valdez for the win.

Leo's no good. Be honest, has he done better than Annabeth or anyone below him? He should be 8 or something in ranking - 766925

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!

Awesome person she should be first

Love her

4 Sadie Kane

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

A funny character, she has my personality. - SapphireGrim

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! )

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


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 a better character than Percy in my opinion

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

Certainly ranked too low on this list

He almost died just to move a statue

7 Coach Gleeson Hedge
8 Thalia Grace

Favorite fictional character ever - PineconeFace

9 Carter Kane
10 Grover Underwood

The Contenders

11 Frank Zhang
12 Jason Grace
13 Zia Rashid
14 Apollo

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

15 Hazel Levesque

Why is she so low?

16 Margaret McCaffrey


17 Reyna Avila Ramirez-Arellano
18 Alex Fierro

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!

19 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

A funny character

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