Top Ten Mythical Gods


The Top Ten

1 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

Good thinking only for gods

2 Poseidon

He super cool! I love the ocean! - smiths3

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

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

Water covers most land Poseidon is the best

3 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!

Zeus is awesome.


I thought Zeus would be one, since he was essentially the "king" of the Gods - scienceLover10

4 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. - RogerMcBaloney

He is awesome

He is the strongest god of thunder and lightning

Its wrong Thor is most powerful god I think his 2nd rank

5 Athena

Voted because of intelligence. - Cyri

The only Olympian with a fecking conscious.

Love her, but she dosen't beat poseidon - luckycayden

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

6 Ares

God of war

Ares is the best!

He is awesome god of war how can he be one of the last one seriously he gains power by fighting he can't be beat!

I agree

7 Apollo

He was handsome!

My zodiac Greek god


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

8 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

My favorite Egyptian god

Looks amazing. Is amazing. Deserves top spot.

the best

9 Odin

The allfather

He speaks, he is also zeus and many others

The father of thor - Oliversky

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

10 Artemis

Artemis is the BEST! I love her! She's my all time favourite! Go 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.

The Contenders

11 Aphrodite

You can't help but love her... - Cyri

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

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

Goddess of Love!

12 Krishna

Worst and worst

The god in Hinduism which kills the demons of the world

Why? He should be number 2 he holds a universe in himself

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

13 Hades

Obviously, I don't need to list the reasons

Have you guys ever witnessed hell?

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

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

14 Loki

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.

He is the best ever! I love him!

He easily make too 10

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

15 Hermes

He is awesome he's the fastest, sneakiest, and he's the messenger of the Greek Gods along with Iris (Goddess of Rainbows)

Technically, Iris is goddess of Skype and Hermes is god of Postman Pat - fwed

Very sneaky and I love how he's so fast and also the God of thieves sadly thieves no mercury on this list is would have picked him I was gonna pick loki then I changed my mind #HERMES/MERCURY

There is no god of time so he can super speed kill the fates and destroy the rest of gods by going back in time and kill them all

He’s a god of tricksters, thieves, traders, athletics, and spoksman, and delivers important informations and is in charge of leading life to the underworld and has the ability to travel through demesions

16 Cronus

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

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.

And kronos is a Titan... not a god

17 Ra

Should be top 3 he created a river of blood

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 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.

18 Demeter Demeter

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


19 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


20 Hephaestus

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

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 litterally make anything he wants and is the GOD OF FIRE

21 Amun Ra

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

22 Vishnu

Super powerful

You know in Hinduism Vishnu practically created the universe so yeah

Most powerful

Top 2

23 Osiris

He's in destiny 2

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

24 Baldr

Brother of Thor and is impregnable until he is near his mother

25 Thanatos

Basically Thanatos is the god of death in greek mythology, and every god who is a representation of death can be considered omnipresent and omnipotent because no one escapes death

26 Gaea

Not a goddess. Grandmother of the gods. - Cyri

The earth itself, what more to ask for a god?

This is very treatable god :3

27 Freyja
28 Allah

Allah is infinate and he is impossible to defeat even if he turned into a mortal with the rest of his powers

Allah only one

Actually, Allah is the only God who is responding to the questions like which God is true? which religion is true? which scripter is true? so that atheist can't open their mouth on the day of judgement.

He's the only GOD. He creates us, created our brain to think of mythology gods

29 Tyr

God of War

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

30 Jesus

Jesus is part of God, and I was born Catholic. So... I vote this one

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.

Jesus should be number one in your life.

My boi can turn water into wine, enough said.

31 Heimdallr

He is the last god to die in the Ragnarok...

32 Isis

Isis is the best thing ever.

-flagged by the government

Let me explain this one to you. She is a Egyptian goddess of magic

Isis sucks duck luul xddd

33 Kratos


Kratos is the man

He may be half human and half god but ultimately he as a hope power so he can beat anyone in world and any god so he is the best and number 1

Kratos can kill any god he can even kill odin and thor he killed poseidon and zeus that means he must be number one
He killed the fates and he can even kill shiva he is 200 years old in that time that gods are still I love but still strong and looks like a 55 years old guy he is half god and half human

34 Frigg
35 Horus

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

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

1 Comment
36 Chaos

He is the most powerful, obviously.. He created everything. And is said that he cannot be defeated, even with all of the other gods or Goddesses combined!

When I think of power, I think of primordial gods, then I think of chaos

Chaos can't be destroyed and is in every relgion

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

37 Ganesha

He beat the Third Reich, how many other gods have done that huh? yeah I didn't think so.

All god worships lord ganesha
Humans worships lord ganesha before starting any special occasions
Intelligence of lord ganesha is unbeatable

I can't believe their are so many ignorant people, who think that Hinduism is a Mythology. It's a religion.

Powerful god

38 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

39 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.

Cthulhu 2020! - Cyri

The Coolest no doubt!

Cthulhu F'taghn!

He is considered to be so large that he can't completely fit in one single dimmension. He can also wipe out all of existence with a single thought.

40 Hanuman

Top 5

Hanuman is strongest god in all god in my opanion but heare is hanuman is in vary last in my opanion hanuman is five no can not minde this list is wrong

He is destroyer of fear and should be in at least top5

He ate the sun as a baby. How much more badass can you get?

41 Rama

God of all gods

According to Hindu mythology he is supreme being, the almighty, the omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.

He is the supreme lord.

He can defeat also Shiva. He is best.

42 Morpheus

Come on, Morpheus is the good of dreams and sleep. Like okay, some of you might think that's lame, but I, for one, love sleeping. Also, if you think about it, Morpheus could be really super powerful, potentially to the point where he has the ability to shape the very reality around us and force us to begin to question what is real (Inception, anybody? ).

Not exactly from a mythology, but Dream is awesome. He is immortal and as long as there is at least one being in the multiverse that can dream he lives. he does not control dreams, he is dream. without dream there cannot be reality.

43 Satan


My favorite God

Oppose the hypocritical god

not a god

44 Set

Chaos, chaos everywhere. - Cyri

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!

45 Sun Wukong

Has over three types of immortality, multiple transformations, strength great enough to strike fear into dragons and jump high enough to reach the end of the universe from the palm of Buddha. If that wasn't enough then he is also bold enough to cause tantrums throughout the heavens.
P.s is a stone monkey.

he's good

His name is literally erased form the book of death. He can’t die!

Defeated an army of hundred thousand gods with nothing but and stick and personally destroyed heaven himself. Not to mention he became basically omnipotent after the journey to the west after studying under Buddha

46 Kali

Nothing can defeat Kali except his husband She can destroy every thing
That comes in his way even all gods

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

47 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.

48 Fenrir

He is the most powerful. Without doubt...


49 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.

My best god

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.

50 Quetzalcoatl

The best god of mexico

Do I need a reason to vote for myself?

A feathered serpent that is the sky and earth and all things serpentine. Oh and it also created humans. From Meso-American mythology
