Top Ten Mythical Gods


The Top Ten

1 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

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.

He very cool creates of the BIG three.Zeus king of all gods is his major hater can I say more.he is made awesome he is total BOSS like no one can beat him that why he is number 1 2 times in a row so if you didn't vote for him you suck, and let this remind you Poseidon is the greatest god and should have kept the the tittle KING OF ALL GODS INSTEAD OF GIVING IT TO ZEUS see how he is a good brother for someone who hates him

2 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? came from Shiva.

2) There is no evidence of his birth...neither 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

Shuva is own the universe, he is nothing but everything. He is the strongest god. He can erase our universe if he wants. He has a weapon called "Trishul" which acts as anti-matter, which can destroy even matter ( matter cannot be destroyed). He is very kind to everyone even with demons. He is the god of all gods. He spends his mostly time in meditation. No one knows how he was created, he doesn't have any beginning or end. He is the one who created even gods.

3 Thor

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

There's only one problem I have with Thor. And most mythologies for that matter when they have their own individual Ragnarok's or the end situations why does there immortality not go into effect then. If you look back into Norse mythology you see that basically everyone dies. And this is why I do not endorse the claim that he is immortal.

4 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

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!

Saint Seiya folks!

5 Odin

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.

Tonight we dine in valhalla

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

Odin is the father of thor the most powerful of all he's like Zues Poseidon thor and Cronus combined

6 Zeus

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

Zeus is mystical god, good spell man super magic go fighter.

King of the gods and Lord of the Sky. Also Supreme God of Weather, Rain, Thunderstorms and Lightning, Clouds and Winds.

He's the best god he helps all the people the Procter of human kind

7 Anubis

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

I wish I could marry him in the Kane stories I want to be Sadie and see him!

Anubis is god of Egypt
He can beat Thor and Odin
Anubis should be number

8 Ra

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.

The dude is the god of the sun and creater of Set who was god of the desert and Osiris who ruled over the birth place of civilization. He literally has the power to obliterate the whole planet. Not to mention he fights a big demon every night and pulls the sun around the world. Let's be real the sun is a little more grand then the ocean.

And osiris is lord of the underworld not ra

And kerip is stronger because he brings the sun across the sky and brings new power

9 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.

He is the BEST he will always be better and he can kill all the other gods

10 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 Egyptian war

The Contenders

11 Athena

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

Athena, this is Pallas Athena, Beautiful female good, gold elegant jacket. Good heart, warrior strategy is winning, big sorcery woman good.

She's smart and the goddess of battle strategy. She's AWESOME and she loves owls :P

Goddess of wisdom, and battle strategy, "even strength has to bow down to wisdom"

12 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

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!

13 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.)

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

The god of mischief, leader of an impeccable army of fan girls, and the father/mother to some truly nasty, horrifying, and amazing monster like children.

Loki, God of Mischief.. Everything's in the name!

14 Cronus

And kronos is a Titan... not a god

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.

King of all gods

17 Amun Ra

He is as strong as all the egiptian gods put together except Amun and ra of course

18 Tyr Tyr Týr is a Faroese heavy metal band. Their subject matter revolves almost entirely around Viking lore, mythology, and history, taking their name from the Norse god of law and justice.

Tyr is the god of BRAVERY he could kick Thor's sorry butt! He should be in top three for sure!

He is the god of war he should be above ares

Kya god hai ya waste

Since he had his hand bitten off by Fenrir to save many lives, he definitely deserves my vote

19 Artemis

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.

Good art Artemis to sarial Xena: Warrior Princess. Artemis his woman in have red hair and beautifull bolt and arrows. She is in gold costum.

Artemis is weapon the bowl. He is red jacket, beautiful female, gread power, werry intellect speed and power.

20 Yahweh

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

Person who said he is not a myth because he is from a religion: You are an idiot because all of these gods are from a religion... does that mean they can't be myths too?

Even today, 4000 years after he was thought out, people still whisper stuff into the air and believe that he is listening... Totally unbelievable! He gets my vote as the craftiest mythical character of all time.

Yahweh, the god of everything he had 3 shapes, human, spirit and a god like form. He created the universe, black holes and everything you see. He is the god of knowledge and power and forgiveness. He has murcy and gives peace, so I think Yahweh (aka God) the name says it should be on the number 1 of this list.

21 Jesus

"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

He not only was an archangel before life, but he gave us free will. Then, we killed him because he allowed us, and then came back from the dead, as a immortal. Plus, he's part of the God-Head, and well... When your on a team with the Almighty Father (a being that predates all the other gods on this, and our universe itself), who is absolutely immortal, omniprecent, omnipotent, all-knowing, etc... He's kinda overpowered.

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

I go to church so Jesus Christ deserves my vote and forever he will

The personification of chaos which created EVERYTHING in roman and greek mythologies nothing is able to defeat him.

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

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

He can destroy the the whole ocean with lava from volcanoes which leaves Poseidon weak with no water to control can stop by making Zues lighting bolt and steal Zues master bolt and Zues is weak. He should be higher

29 Osiris

I can't believe I have to even put him on this list.

30 Marduk Marduk Marduk is a black metal band from Norrköping, Sweden. The band formed in 1990 and released their first album in 1992. Their name is derived from the Babylonian god Marduk, patron deity of Babylon.

Babylonian champion god. He had slain Tiamat to become king of gods and he created his godly abode from her carcus. He comparable to Zeus since he uses lightning bolts as a weapon. He is said to have four eyes and four eyes so he can see and hear everything around him. He is the wisest of all of the Babylonian gods, even surpassing the intellect of his own father, Enki, the god of wisdom and sorcery

31 Kukulkan
32 Kratos

Kratos is not a god, and if you look up some gods, like Susanoo, and Tsukuyomi you'd know that killing other gods isn't that big of a deal.

Kratos is so powerful he killed the god of gods that's badass for ya.He's so powerful they made more then three games ripping heads of he killed Ares ths god of war,Hercule he's brother and all he's uncles which is Zeuz, Hades and Poseidon which is number one on the list.So in conclusion Kratos is the real number won the.Wait he should be on the mythological creatures he's a creatures he's ruthless creatures and he kills anybody or anything that gets in he's way

35 Allah

All God's are "mythological" until proven beyond a shadow of doubt to exist. Allah is no exception. It's not disrespectful to say he's "mythological." I'm a Hindu, and I don't get butthert when people use that term about my God/God's (we have many, and yet only one at the same time) because they/it aren't absolutely proven to exist. Don't be so thin skinned. A true "omnipotent" God, if real, needs no defending. And certainly not by mere mortals like us. ;P

Nothing look like him he does not resemble his creations and capable of doing any thing just by ordering he created the universe in six days

Can only communicate from a cave.

Allahu Akbar. Allah Swt. is not mythical gods. Astaghfirullah...

36 Kali

The great mother who saved the world. She is the most powerful and nothing could stop her until her husband Shiva let her dance on him. Kali may be terrifying, but she is the best mother who cares for all her children. All creation comes from her and returns to her including the supreme father. She is one of the forms of Devi and the greatest. According to Rig Veda, the oldest scripture in the world, she is the mother and the only way.

It would have been my second choice

Goddess of time...she brings the end

The strongest godess in the world

37 The Morrigan

Three faced celtic raven God of war.General badass

She is the Celtic goddess of both life and death. She is by far my favorite goddess. To learn more I suggest you check out this site:

She is the reason we have characters like Lydia Martin. Banshees may be neutral, but they are also incredibly powerful.

38 Chronos

He is time personified

Time god is the best

39 Saraswati

Formerly associated with the Saraswati river she is now the hindu goddess of wisdom and the arts. She rides a swan, is sometimes seated on a lotus. She is typically depicted with four hands holding items such as a veena (like a sitar), a crystal rosary, a pot of water and a copy of the Vedas (ancient sacred texts). She is the consort of Brahma, creator of the universe. As the goddess of inspiration she is credited with being the inspiration behind the creation of the universe. Brahma loved her so much that he grew three more heads, so that he could look in all four directions and could gaze upon her wherever she was.

The great goddess of wisdom and the wisest form of Devi. She is the great mother and the wisest of all the gods and goddesses. She is found in both Buddhism and Hinduism and is the wisest, smartest, most intelligent, most artistic, most creative, and most musical goddess. As the wife of Lord Brahma in Hinduism and Lord Manjushri in Buddhism, she is the perfection of wisdom that even all the Buddhas depend on. In wrathful form, she has many from the very powerful dharmapala Palden Lhamo who is part of the 8 main protectors of Buddhism to Magzor Gyalmo. However, she is peaceful and a great mother greater than Athena, Thoth, and many more.

42 Cthulhu Cthulhu Cthulhu is a fictional cosmic entity created by writer H. P. Lovecraft and first introduced in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu", published in the American pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928. Considered a Great Old One within the pantheon of Lovecraftian cosmic entities, the creature has since been more.

He's Cthulhu

Hail the dark lord, the sleeper of R'lyeh, the great dreamer, may he release our minds into the void and deliver us into madness.
But on a serious note, with his coming, ALL are rendered insane, and complete destruction and chaos will destroy this world save for his ethereal form.

Cthulhu is my little sister. So of course I'd vote for her <3

(I'm a good myself by the way. Kinda runs in the blood, ya'know.)

43 Indra

The Coolest and the Strongest

He is same as Zeus. King of gods according to Hindu mythotody. He holds in his hand a great powerful thunder weapon.

44 Adi-Buddha

The worst god

Self emanating, omipotent, omniscent, originator of all things. The multiverse came into being simply as a result of his meditation. Interchangable with the Hindu concept of Brahman.

They control the destiny of all living beings including the gods even Zeus fears them

They should be number 1 they kill all gods

Fates is three woman, name Klaitho, Lechasis and Antropos. This three old woman roll thread fate. My comparison Fates of serial Xena: warrior princess in 4 and 5 and 6 season discover to three Fates and attacking of Xena, Gabrielle and Julius Caesar. Three Fates his no ended.

The great, and powerful form of Manjushri. He took this form to help others with 5 principal forms and is very beneficial. However, because of the Nechung oracle who has been taken possession of Nyari Tulku(also known as Nyatrul) instead of Dorje Drakden(aka . Pehar Gyalpo), the prophecies have been wrong and he has rejected the enlightened Dorje Shugden. In fact, the Dalai Lama depends on him as the traditions of lamas depending on the actual Nechung Oracle and the new Shugden Oracle, that because of this evil spirit, Dorje Shugden has been banned and is of very similar persecution to the Jews in the Holocaust and Spanish Inquisition. These two events, Shugden bans and the Holocaust are very similar:
-Great teachers which were Moses in Judaism, Jesus in Christianity, and Gautama Buddha in Buddhism
-All taught peace
-Christian Germans started persecuting the Jews, one of the 12 tribes of Israel chosen by their God through Hitler's influential speeches
-Buddhists started ...more
