Top Ten Mythical Gods

The Top Ten

Shiva

Like seriously?

Shiva is not even in top 10?

Guess most of the people here are marvel fanboys who never got our of their little comic world and tried to look for the Gods in other Mythology.

Here is why Shiva is number one:-

1) Heard of Kamasutra?...right...it came from Shiva.

2) There is no evidence of his birth...neither death..no one knows how he was born...or destroyed, like energy, and he can reincarnate for ever, like energy..can never be destroyed, nor be created, but only can be transferred.

3) He is referred as the destroyer, can destroy the universes with just by opening his third eye.

4) He is always HIGH. Yup, the only god in the world who is a pothead. I am sure no other god in the world is worshipped by getting offered cannabis drink and dhatura(one of nine species of poisonous vespertine flowering plants belonging to the family Solanaceae.)

5) A good dancer. But don't expect him to dance for fun, he dances when he ...more

Shiva is the one whom all the other Gods have sprung out of. When he feels like he can blow the hell out of the whole universe by just opening his third eye. He is Mahadev- which means he is the God of the Gods. Modern physics is telling us that there's something called dark energy or dark matter and it's in its lap that all the creation is happening. 98.9 percent of the whole universe is made up of nothing and it's nowadays called singularity or dark energy. Shiva literally means that which is not. Atoms get destroyed by themselves when we aren't looking at them. So actually the universe is made up of nothing or Shiva. If this God of Gods and mahayogi opens his third eye, everything hat you ever can know or you cannot know will be destroyed and nothing will be left except Shiva. Shiva is not a concept. He is the basis and personification of the modern physical sciences.

Although, it is not proper to compare God's of different religion because non of them ever clashed with each other according to mythology., though there are plenty of battles fought between gods of same religion. But I think Lord Shiva a.k.a Mahadev(Maha- something superior, Dev- God, in Hindu religion) is the strongest among other gods, I think because when it comes to war, he himself is the God of destruction and many gods and demons have seen his rage but only few survive to tell the tale. The third eye of Lord Shiva has the power to destroy anything and everything ever created. The trident he owns is not a weapon to mess with and also the trident specifies the supremacy of Lord Shiva among other Gods. Lord Shiva also have a large numbers of weapons he can summon any time to use. Lastly I want to say that unlike many other Gods whose powers are basically elemental like Zeus - God of Thunder, Thor- Same as Zeus, Poseidon - God of sea, Helius - God of fire etc Lord Shiva's powers are ...more

He is the ultimate being. He can destroy ANYTHING just by looking at it through his third eye. Sure Zeus once fought typhon to save humans, but he was saving himself as well. Shiva is perfectly safe no matter what, but he still drank poison to save the human race.

Poseidon

Poseidon was one of three sons of the Titan Cronus. His kid brother Zeus gets a lot of the cred for overthrowing the Titans, slaughtering a bunch of gnarly evil monsters most of which occurred only with Poseidon's help, I might add , and ruling over the Earth, while Poseidon got stuck living under the sea with talking crabs in mermaid town. Sure, spear hunting leviathans on the floor of the Marianas Trench might not be as glamorous as having babes hand feed you ambrosia on the peak of Mount Olympus, but hey, it could have been worse Poseidon and Zeus' other brother, Hades, got stuck trudging around the Underworld for eternity like a chump. Sure, it sounds cool, but ruling over Hell really isn't as awesome as you'd think it would be. The excitement dies down after a while. Plus, it should be mentioned the oceans are the most wide ranging expanse on the face of the planet and something the Greeks depended on for food, transportation, and adventure , so maybe chilling out on the sea ...more

God of waterbodies and earthquakes... piss him of and u may find a hole on where u live

Of course death is unavoidable, Hades is pretty damn powerful for that, but all life originated from the sea and will always return to it, either in death or in life. Sea is the unstoppable force in the living world. Nowadays, we can protect ourselves from lightening and we have designed buildings that can withstand hurricanes or tornadoes. When it comes to the sea... think about it, nothing can stop a tsunami. I haven't read many of the Greek myths but I think I've heard somewhere that when Poseidon got angry he felled Atlantis or something. He isn't the 'king of the gods' because Zeus controls the heavens, which everyone looks up to and frankly, everyone is slightly scared by the sea, but Poseidon could realistically beat Hades and Zeus at the peak of his power.

Since he is in the big three and wields a trident he is heart much great in number 2 spot

Zeus

People who say Poseidon is more powerful, well I have 3 Reasons why Zeus destroys Poseidon.

1.When the powerful monster "Typhon" came & try to destroy Olympus. Poseidon flee like a Coward while Zeus was the only one to fought back.

2.Zeus punished Poseidon when he tried to overthrew him in the Civil War. Forced him to work on the walls of Troy.

3.Poseidon obeys Zeus's commands. After all... Zeus is king of the gods!

hey weres Hercules he's Zeus son he should be in the top 12 >:( oh well

I thought Zeus would be one, since he was essentially the "king" of the Gods

Is there no love for Zeus? He is the most powerful Greek god. And due to his personality flaws, is certainly a very interesting god. This guys thunderbolts could shake the cosmos, and were certainly enough to depose a time god (Kronos, his dad). Zeus is the father of gods and men, both figuratively and literally

Anubis

He is the god of death. The only thing that trumps death is life so theoretically Kali, the goddes of life is the strongest and Anubis, the god of death is the second strongest.

Not really life is temporary while sadly death is inevitable - Dimderi

He has a jackal head. Close enough to a dog. I'm born under the year of the dog. Case closed.

God of the dead. Has a jackal head. Sounds really cool. Transported the dead personally into the underworld - even Hades doesn't do that. Plus Egyptian, so winning on many counts.

He has a jackal head and he's the god of the dead. Whats not to like about him? Hades is my other favorite

Thor

I really hate that most comments here are about Marvel's version of Thor. The mythical version of Thor is better and at least it wasn't ruined by Marvel.

This title, The Mighty Thor. God of Thunder. Master of the Storm and Lightning, pretty much says it all. Thor is Immortal, he is a God. Thor is naturally super strong but his strength is multiplied even more with his wristbands of strength. Thor commands the storm and lightning. His Uru Hammer is one of the most powerful weapons anywhere, any place. Indestructible. The Hammer lets Thor fly and go into space and different worlds. The Hammmer channels lightning. Nothing evil or non-worthy can lift it let alone use it as a weapon. When thrown, it returns automatically back to Thor's hand. Thor has his magical goat-drawn chariot and Thor can eat his two goats anytime and they will return to form as long as none of the bones are lost or broken.

I completely agree with your statement. If you look back into history we lesser humans have kept detailed records on these so called immortals. So why do we call them immortal if they can be killed or they have already died. Makes no sense whatsoever. don't argue just think about it. Every religion, mythology, deity, whatever has some story about one or all of their gods being killed or dying. So what do you think about immortality now kind of sounds like a great time doesn't it except that all the immortals die. Even Christianity States that death will reap GOD

Thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind and also hallowing and fertility. He also has a sick hammer. What else do you want?

Athena

The cleverest and wisest of the greek gods... she can easily trick her enemies which means she is strong

Wisest of gods, her creation story is a warning even the most powerful of all Zeus has to maintain balance or perish

Athena is so smart (goddess of wisdom) so she should automatically be number 1. She's smart and shes also the goddess of war and USEFUL arts so yea definitely number 1 in my book

Athena beats Ares and he beats most of the Olympians outside of the big three mythologically the only one the ever beat him straight up was Athena so yea. There is that

Ares

Ok I,m sorry but this dude is a beast , honestly how is he not like 2nd after Osiris of course this man should be unbeatable I mean BEING THE GOD OF WAR. He definitely should be higher ranked
am I right #Ares

I LOVE ARES BEST GOD EVER. Ares is so cool I sometimes think I am a demigod daughter of Ares my father was in the marines and always has weapons in our house my father calls me " A miniature version of Ares" LOL. PEOPLE VOTE FOR ARES HE IS NOT A JERK ZEUS IS A JERK

I think Ares should be higher up this list. He IS the GOD OF WAR. Whenever the is strife, he is stronger. Fighting him is giving him more power.

Hated by all Olympian Gods and despised by his father Zues he is the underdog god in greek mythology. He is bested by Athena in Troy, however, championed by the spartans. At the end of the day, Ares is the God of War and there is nothing worse than that. He is the raw bloodlust and masculinity of war and bloodshed. Notwithstanding what was mentioned before, he is married to the goddess of beauty- He is a player.

Actually, not married, just a lover, and also, you realise Spartans are just a really powerful, organised army of barbarians right? No offense to any out there. This was the ancient Spartans. - fwed

Hades

Zeus is king of the gods for the obvious reason, he rules the sky. In every mythology out there, the ruler either owns the heavens, the sky, or the sun, or some combination thereof. But Hades? Hades, man, the underworld is NAMED after this guy. He controls all the riches under the earth as well as the dead. His domain is by far the most powerful, most controlled, and most tasking. What do the olympians do? They go around busting up humanity out of boredom because their jobs are just that, boring. But Hades has to control the dead, ALL the dead. That's a lot of people, and a lot of places. The underworld in general is an ever vast place, like the universe pretty much, because people just KEEP DYING. Poseidon might control earthquakes and shiz, and the ocean which does cover a lot of the planet. But it's just the cover, even Zeus doesn't have much to do with an entire sky, a lightening storm here or there, yeah, terrifying, but let's compare that to death. You might die of lightening, ...more

He was banished to the underground by zeus (i think) its like his hell as much as it is yours - Dimderi

Just cause he's cool, has Cerberus as a bodyguard (madness in the dunyaa).

The Greek pantheon is one of the greatest pantheons due to the fact that Greek gods are "undying, deathless gods." Unlike Norse gods, they can't get eaten by a wolf, hah. But this is the Greek god that has my most respect. Although the heavens was his birth right as the eldest, he allowed himself to take care of the Underworld. And he did a damn good job, making it fair and stuff. Plus, when you think about it, he controlled Tarturus, and thus all he Titans and monsters in it as well as the dead. So if he wanted, he could transform earth into hell and no one would be able to do anything about it. So Hades>>Poseidon, definitely. And ultimately, he presided over the human soul (eternity), whereas Zeus just looks at humans during life (60 or so years) and just looks to bang women. So Hades is the best

Not only was he a fearsome warrior in the war with the titans, his power can match Poseidon's and even Zeus's, not to mention he has the Helm of Darkness, commands countless legions of the dead, has complete control of all metals and gems, I mean come on he's the god of the underworld!

Apollo

I feel like I am a lot like this god. he is handsome, vain, good at singing, and is awesome.

My name is apollo and he is one of my favorite gods

Apollo is my favorite God of all time.

I took two different quizzes and got Apollo twice

Odin

He gave his eye for more knowledge than you would get from studying and Cambridge

Odin has total control of the 8 Realms. Zeus only has the heavens, which isn't even his. Uranus, a Titan, is on a better level than he is. Odin, well, let's just say he is also smart enough to fit in the level of THE STRONGEST GOD! Also, he is father of Thor, who controls lightning just as well as Zeus.

He is the best I mean he ODIN! The beard says it all

Tonight we dine in valhalla

The Contenders

Artemis

Friend to humans and animals and independent

Artemis should be higher

Artemis is goddess of hunt, in serial Xena and Hercules is Artemis hard opponent and his me alliance to biggest gods. Gold costeem and gold bolt and weapons.

Yes

Ra

Why the heck is Ra 17th? Dude should be like 5th or top 5. Even his eye could destroy earth's population how much more him. Despite not being the god of Wisdom he has shown to be near Thoth. Look at his wise remarks for not voting for Horus during his trial with Set. The rays of the sun were said to be his arrows which can hurt people. Now is anyone faster than light itself. Not Hercules, not Wunkong, not Shiva because Ra's arrows move lightspeed. He also took on universal beings like Apep every night, a villain who demonstrated the ability to destroy a sun and could take on many gods and win. Ra should be higher than he is. He has so many abilities that will make him kick the ass of all the gods on the list.

Ra is a boss. I knew Poseidon or something would be the first because of modern dramatisations of him, but really? Like, Ra is probably the oldest god on this list, God of the sun, and he has a sick hawk head. Ra is better than al, other gods. And what's the deal with Anubis? Why is everyone thinking he's so cool, but he's just the god of mummification. Yep, preserving dead bodies who's brains have been pulled out their noses. Many people confuse him with being the king of the underworld, which is actually orsiris's job, not Anubis's. Ra rules. And so does Horus, but I can only vote for one so yeah.

Ra is the best god of all time he should be way higher than this!

Ra, god of the sun, demiurge and also something more interesting. This guy created everything that exists just by calling his name, created himself from the primordial body of nun and has the power of basically doing everything he pleases. As some might not know, the sun is Ra's eye that he voluntarely take it off to find two of his sons. But that is not enough, he fights a battle with the terrifying god of chaos Apep. A clash that take place everyday at night and we know he always wins because the sun come out every morning.

If you think that was enough, well you are wrong, because in other myths the sun is a god known as atum, so Ra isn't the embodiment of the sun or a part of it. It becomes something more abstract and interesting, something like the god of light, energy and temperature.

Horus

God of war and once took the thrown of the gods. Defeated Set at a young age (16-20). He never gives up and has control over griffins and hawks!

I think its true

He is the God of war and also very strong

God of war and god of falcons. So op

Demeter

I love Demeter and her devotion to her daughter she’s a kind and wonderful mother too,

But also, wHAT THE HELL IS THIS PICTURE?!

Krishna

The god in Hinduism which kills the demons of the world

It's been said Krishna is cause of all causes.

Krishna should be in #2 place after Lord Shiva.

The most charming god on this planet, Krishna is the complete God

Set

No he is not ra is he left willingly so as not to be forced into resining by isis so if nut had kept her promise and not had kids ra would be king

He is insanely cool and he is the god of chaos

Chaos, chaos everywhere.

Set is the rightful king of the gods. He represents power as god of storms, chaos and war. He kills wimpy osires, rules a successful reign. The classic story is corrupted to say he fights Horus and looses! Which may I say is utter bullpoop! Set, or as I prefer, Sutekh (zootek) defeats the wimpy Horus by ripping his eye out and keeps the throne. Sadly Horus complains to the other gods and they have a vote. All gods support Horus because he is moral, apart from the wisest Ra, who says that the most powerful god should rule not the most moral, he votes fo Sutekh. Alas if it wasn't for stupid democracy Set would remain king. He is also the only Egyptian god to have the head of an animal that doesn't exist. Pretty damn cool!

Jesus

A myth means something that is not real so if you believe in Christianity then this should not be on the list.

"Jesus is from a religion"- anonymous

You do know that literally every one of these gods are from a religion... you ignorant piece of white toast. Just because Jesus and his story book is popular doesn't mean he's real or that people aren't allowed to compare him to other gods from different religions... also God, Yahweh, and Allah are all the same person in your little storybooks with talking animals that you say is the history of the world with a magic man that heals people with his touch

Allah and God are two very different immortals. All the Muslims who are complaining that Allah is on this list will tell you otherwise and being a pacifist and lacking evidence, believe me, or believe them. Also, there's evidence that he (Jesus) is real. So quit being a wiseass and study up if you're gonna put salt in the wounds of most of the people on earth.

Historical documents prove Jesus was actually a real human. To the Christians and Messianic Jews, Jesus is God in the flesh or otherwise the Messiah. To others he was (and is) a good person and a prophet.

Don't know about the last part about him being a prophet, but otherwise, I totally agree.

I don't know of any text saying that he was an archangel. But he was the son of God given unto Mary. Kind of like Hercules from Greek mythology when you think about it. Both of there father's visited women in the middle of the night. the only difference I could say would be that God would lend his power to Jesus. And that Hercules only had his strength

Loki

One of the most dynamic god in all mythologies. He can be anybody he wants to be and he's also the one who'll end/destroy the world of gods in the Norse mythology. (Norse is definitely the best mythology therein, too bad there's no Homer who translated/rewritten the whole book of Edda for us to understand the whole story of the Norse deities.)

Unlike what marvel states, Loki is not a frost giant, but has giant blood in him. Could trick Odin, the almost omniscient allfather, and manipulated Thor too many times to count. Definitely him.

And he can trick the gods anytime and defeat them I bet he has the power to control card games cause you know he's a joker and it's pretty cool to control a swarm of Sharp pure cards

Come on, I mean, it's LOKI. Arguably the most intelligent of the Gods, possibly possessing the most intriguing personality, and hands down the hottest.

Yahweh

What would you had said if YAHWEH was indeed GOD THE FATHER and if he had more than one name if at least one other name like DAAT and if GOD THE MOTHER JERUSALEM if she could been named that gave birth YAHWEH over 100 billion years even over 10000 billion years ago I would think and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT gave birth to GOD THE MOTHER. I would want to be kidding if I was hundreds even up to few ten thousands times older than GOD THE FATHER himself if I created GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT like 50 even 100 trillion years ago and created an physical entity and a physical universe before I created GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT and made things destined to happen like birth of GOD THE MOTHER and eventually the birth of GOD THE FATHER. I was given birth to the first entity I ever created and if I granted her before INFINITE and UNLIMITED amount of supernatural power and INFINITE and UNLIMITED knowledge, wisdom and awareness about everything and anything you could possibly imagine if this was all true would you ...more

Because basically every other God in this list has ever bean defeated or can be defeated by some other in this list apart from Yahweh

He is because he is the creator of the world other than the myths that have some OVERWHELMING SUPERPOWERS. IMAGINE He Is THE FIRST IN THE MYTHOLOGY OR REAL THAT HAS BEeN WOrshIPED By people. SHIVA? weak.. He just exist from nothing

He is still worshiped. If you can get a myth to be worshiped in the 21st century, you must be some mythical badass.

Aphrodite

She rocks.
Without her, this would be a HATEFUL world

Powerful or not she's defiantly deceptive. Come on guys every living creature has love in it. Why does many heroes and villains do crazy things?! Why is Zeus afraid of his own wife?! ( why are we, first?! ) why did hades risk kidnapping phersisphone ( or whatever her name was) why did Poseidon creat horses?! Why was there a Trojan war?! Think

You can't help but love her...

Goddess of Love!

Cronus

Kronor is super cool, he can manipulate time itself has super strong, his father Uranus was afraid of him.

He's actually a Titan so he doesn't belong on this list.

He is not a Titan, he is the god of time, and his name is spelled Chronos. The titan you are thinking of is Kronos, not Chronos.

And kronos is a Titan... not a god

Satan

Why? He's the opposite of God. Unless you're a satanist, I suppose

My favorite God

Oppose the hypocritical god

not a god

Vishnu

Shiv hi vishnu, vishnu hi shiv so their is no difference between them.

You know in Hinduism Vishnu practically created the universe so yeah

He should be on the second. Below Shiva. What us wrong with you people?

He is #1 he is powerful than anyone

Hephaestus

Best God ever! He is a Greek god the greek god of fire forge volcanoes blacksmiths and artisans!

He made most of the gods weapons and other items as well as helping the human race thrive.

Dude he can make anything in seconds and he defeated ares that's cool

Dude, he can litterally make anything he wants and is the GOD OF FIRE

Freyja
