Top Ten Mythical Gods

The Top Ten
Poseidon

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.

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

Hey you forgot that he controls earthquakes hence the title "EARTHSHAKER" I mean really if you can shake the earth then I really don't know wt you're even supposed to be, the earth is all there is to the planet in the sense of it's holding besides gravity if you didn't have the earth well guess wt... and you guessed it but eh I like that my mans is up at the top he really is underrated o but lolz if Zeus tried to fry the ocean he'd have a hard time making a flare I mean really you're really gonna try and attack another god's realm.. in which he/she controls undisputedly I don't really think you could cause a ripple in the pond.

Poseidon all the way! Who denies the might of the raging storms and the writing earth?! Defy him and find yourself struck by the Earthquakes or the Sea-rampages... Unless you are Zeus or Hades (who would either run to the skies to blanket himself in clouds or hide beneath the earth shaking with terror, respectively)... But Eventually, you will be struck down by him!

Shiva

It's inappropriate to compare Gods of other religions, even comparing God in the same religion. I am not here trying to compare anything. But the most fascinating thing about Shiva that I want to share is, though he is the very first yogi(Adiyogi), holds all the power sources, create and destroy anything in the blink of an eye, but he is still very calm, innocent, favourite of all Goods and Evils.

Shiva is the innermost being in everything. He acts mainly as the destroyer but he in fact can create, preserve and destroy all universes. He is the god of gods and can remove anything with form from existence.

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.

Shiva is just his Name in human world.
This is just his God form just like other god takes human form. Actually he lives in a world with nothing. No air, no water, no fire and also no death. Death is only created for human world. And those who can't die can be erased from existence by lord Shiva

Zeus

The immortal ruler of existence, he is arguably weaker than only the primary vedic deities. Even though he is said to rule only heaven, he in fact rules over almost all other gods and thus over all domains. He rules fate itself.

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!

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 arguably the most powerful, most famous and most interesting of all the gods in all the pantheons of the world. It doesn’t matter where you are you have heard at least one thing about Zeus in the many stories he has been in.

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.

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.

Actually even without his master bolt, he still is a god and just because he loses his masterbolt doesn't mean that he isn't the god of the sky and thunder.

Oh my gosh! In the Kane Chronicles, Sadie described him as super hot. Just the way she described him made me melt.

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 Tartarus, and thus all the 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!

Though one who was condemned to the underworld, although he was supposed to rule the sky. As the symbol of death, he was not often worshiped. Nobody can escape him, that makes him modestly badass. Cerberus gets him extra points.

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

Immortality aside I have had something bothering me for a while now every Christian Presbyterian, Catholic, Adventists all know of GOD OK this is fine no arguments here. Now think about what he looks like why have we not given him form. The gods of old were said to be able to take the shape of anything at anytime. But they all had at least one appearance that everyone agrees with. So why does the so called ONE TRUE GOD not have one. Just asking post back if you have a theory

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.

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

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.

Ares is God of war, werry long hystory god. My comparison Ares to film actor Kevin Smith, of series Xena: Warrior princess. Ares of Xena and series Hercules is me great power, speed and intellect, power teleport and power is his zord, Ares my comparison to flying A.N.T.

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.

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.

Odin is be powerful North God. Great discover to Odin from serial Xena: Warrior princess. Odin be in 6 Season, Episode, s name (The Rheingold), and the (Ring), and (Return the Valkire). Odin of Xena me great magic power and he is intellected.

Okay, let me begin by stating why the above options are a disgrace

Poseidon - You guys do realize that GREEK mythology was made by the GREEKS who thought that the oceans were seriously small. Yeah. Don't try to exaggerate his powers by taking what we know scientifically to replace what was known mythological. Poseidon was also a man-whore. He did the same things Zeus did, he was just more sneaky with it. Also, if you're going to say Poseidon was all that because he had what? Tsunamis? Don't make me laugh. In that matter, Hephaestus should be top. Tsunamis can destroy coastlines. A volcano can cause mass-extinctions, create a year-long winter in every corner of the earth, thus causing entire civilizations to crumble. If a tsunami hit New York, it would be bad for a lot of billionaires. If Keystone exploded, it will ANNIHILATE all life in Canada, USA, and Mexico. Let's not start with what it will do to Denark and Russia. Educate yourselves, you Percy Jackson ignorant. Riordan ...more

Odin has to be number one because he can easily taken on Zeus, Hayes and Poseidon which tells that he is the leader of the Norse deities for a reason.

Athena

Best role Athena in serial Xena: Warrior princess. Role Athena to Paris Jefferson. This role Athena be in most ending 5 season, three episode, S. Occurrence Athena in serial Xena, beautifull woman with gold helm, gold costum, and gold teleporte, and power to speed and know small flying.

The Godess of wisdom and also the one who loves and supports mortals more than any other immortal. And she picked up effing Mount Aetna and threw it on Giant Enceladus entrapping him under the volcano for all eternity. That's pretty bad ass.

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 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

Apollo

Great art Apollo in serial Hercules, Apollo of Hercules to god sun, gold costum and werry speed, great power and intellect.

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

I took two different quizzes and got Apollo twice

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

The Contenders
Ra

He created everything and rules over all of the universe according to Egyptian lore. Only his sight is sufficient to destroy all humanity.

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.

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, 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.

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.

She's awesome! And she's like me because she's an animal lover.

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

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!

The original Jesus Christ (seriously look up the Jesus/Horus comparison meme on Google Images).

He is the God of war and also very strong

God of war and god of falcons. So op

Krishna

The human who is infact the supreme god. He was both fully human and the Supreme formless god. He alone is all the supreme powers unlike Jesus who is only 1/3rd of the supreme powers. His true form was Lovecraftian way before Lovecraft was even born and it scared the hell out of Arjuna, one of the bravest warriors.

Krishna is avatar of Vishnu, who is the operator of the universe. He said in Bhagvat Gita "I am there in blend in everything in the universe. From human to mighty galaxies."

According to Hindu mythology... Krishna is everything... he was there from the beginning... he created the creator Brahma..the destroyer Shiva... during kurushkethra war he himself told everything to Arjuna...

Krishna is the god of love. He is considered gods of gods and chan even beat Lord Vishnu and lord Shiva also treats them as there aaradhya or guru

Demeter

All the gods listen to her without her humans would eat each other all the other deites should bow to her when her daughter got lost Hades had to give in so he and the other gods didn't get destroyed I mean seriously!

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?!

Set

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!

He is insanely cool and he is the god of chaos

Chaos, chaos everywhere.

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

Jesus

He's not only The most powerful God on the list, but the rightful King of Heaven and the only actual God on the list. Everyone else listed here are either fallen angels or their offspring, which granted could be considered "gods", considering they claimed to be such. Look into the fall of lucifer, look into Enoch, The book of Giants and whether its popular or not, start comparing "mythologies" and research the pyramids of the world. You'll start realizing soon enough that there is only One True God.

I read higher up on this list that God will be reaped by death...information is a little wrong. Jesus is the human form of god, thus he was mortal. God (the father, the spirit) is everlasting. God (the father) isn't a spirit or human. God (the holy spirit) is a spirit, thus is eternal (like ours). Saying that God will be reaped by death (die), is not only ignorant (in the literal definition of the word, so not saying the person who wrote the comment is ignorant (everyone else's version of the word), but in my opinion...wrong.
But Jesus is life. Literally.

"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.

Loki

Ok, he leads doomsday for all norse deities, he can trick people by changing his/her gender, he is the parent of a snake that's wrapped around the world an 8 legged horse a Un-Killable wolf I mean seriously you can't get more bad ass or powerful than that and well he's the god of mischeif come on!

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.)

I think Loki should be in the top ten he's obviously the best. he's a god of asgarde (sorry if I spelled it wrong)
despite being a frost giant and being the god of trickery he's probably the most devious and intelligent (besides Odin and Heimdall on that last one) of all gods. oh yeah, and he will END THE GODS

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.

Satan

The embodiment of all evil, his power rivals that of Yahweh even though he is much younger. Imagine if he was as old as Yahweh, he could defeat him

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

Oppose the hypocritical god

My favorite God

Cronus

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

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.

Bruh Chronos is not a god, he is basically a entity that is time itself. It was almost created at the same time as Chaos.

He is the best and he is the most powerful titan that's crap yeah

Yahweh

The single most infinitely op God. Not only is he the only true god, but if there were a series of pantheons, he wipes the floor with them. The creator and sustainer of the universe, the most influential god in history, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient the list is endless. His power and fullness of being cannot even be possibly perceived by anyone unlike every other God on this list. Unlike every other God that emerged from chaos, He walked atop the chaos in the beginning. He's always been there. The most personal and loving god to the point of becoming human and dying to show his love for humanity. Will reign as king of everything till the end of time. 1000% the greatest, strongest, most infinite being in existence, no question. also only god with a capital G... just saying.

God is the most powerful of all the Gods but one reason he might not be number one is because he isn't technically a god, He is so powerful an infinite that calling him a god would be a MASSIVE understatemate so maybe why he isn't higher up is cause he is more than just a god and also he isn't technically mythical he is real. And Yahweh is just a name of God all of Him is the Trinity which is actually THREE persons but ONE God! And plus in Hindu mythology they worship Brahma who is really a distorted version of God sorta like the god of the muslims and he is WAY stronger than stinking Shiva! So in basically almost any myth God is technically the most powerful.

The reason why Yahweh is worshiped so much is because the Abrahamic God is considered to be a loving parent, albeit a gruff one at times. With the fact that humanity has been full of hardships left and right this idea helps a lot. Especially with the fact that Christianity is the most widespread religion in the world because of Jesus (Yeshua, Yahweh in the flesh to believers) message of the Golden Rule and of goodwill is a comfort.
Judgment day is also mentioned many times as the idea of world peace, which was rather new for the time, and a judgment of good and evil helps in times of hardship.

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

Aphrodite

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

She is goddess love and beautiful, werry great power. In Serial Xena: warrior princess his Aphrodite me werry great power. Of Season 5 episode 22 his Aphrodite help to taking Xena and Gabrielle in hill Olymp. His saving life Gabrielle.

Why is she married to hephaestus? because the other gods took her as a threat.

You can't help but love her...

Vishnu

The omnipotent and omnipresent preserver god. All heroes are but his incarnations. He always has a way to defeat an opponent no matter who.

He is the supreme god of Hindus. He is the best. He ca n defeat Thor like any other god in a second by his discuss wheel. According to Hindu mythology the he creater, the preserver and destroyer. The supreme being.

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?

Hephaestus

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

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
