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 water.one 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

Well, there is not much to even argue about, since Poseidon is too OP compared to other gods.

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?...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

The best god

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.

Thor is way better than any hindu or muslim god

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.

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

Tonight we dine in valhalla

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.

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

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!

He is amazing and cool he might not be as strong as the other Egyptian gods but he is still young

He is the son of Osiris wich makes him the brother of horus so maybe Osiris made Anibus the god of death or maybe it was Ra

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 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.

Ares is not married to Aphrodite... She is married to Hephaestus and cheats on him with ares... Check yourself before you wreck yourself

I love ares he is so hot!

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

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.

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

GOD of TIME

16 Amun Ra

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

17 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.

He is the god of war he should be above ares

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

18 Krishna

The god in Hinduism which kills the demons of the world

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

He is the god who is better than other od

Krishna is an incarnation of Vishnu, the lord of lords.

19 Yahweh

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

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.

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?

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.
