Top Ten Best Types of Mythology

The Top Ten

1 Greek Mythology

Greek Mythology is the best. Rick Riordan is also a super good author.

This is the best sort of mythology, if you like this mythology check out Rick Riordan and the Percy Jackson series

It makes way more sense than other mythologies OK? Egyptian myths make no sense, and Norse is only a little less confusing. The Romans are copycats, they SO copied Greek Mythology! Greek myths make sense and are awesome!,!

Pretty overrated at times but worth it since it is too cool to be true.

2 Norse Mythology

Easily the most interesting. On one hand there are so few sources, but on other hand the ones we have tend to be more consistent, though not always. But most of them were written by Christians, of course, as well as Arabic people, since the Old Norse people did not tend to be well-versed in written languages before the Christianization of the nations. It has amazing, epic, but also surreal tales of a creature having their feet breed with one another and birthing beings out of his armpits, and has all the trappings of modern, or 1950s, fantasy literature. Even today's fantasy literature. But only it still feels fresh and its own. The idea of a world tree with many different worlds planted on it are very fascinating to me as well. We have had mountains, humanoid bodies and many other kinds of cosmologies across the world, but I love my ancestors' idea of a giant tree the most. Then there are the people of our nations themselves. They were big believers in honour, winning honour and ...more

Easily my favorite. A little difficult to understand, but when you uncover how well thought out these people/characters are, it's beautiful.

It's so fun to learn about and I am a big Marvel fan as well so with them adding it to Marvel it was even better.

Norse for life

3 Egyptian Mythology

Has to be top three, read Rick Riordan's 'Kane Chronicles' and you'll understand why

Why is Arthurian legend higher? Despite being 1000s of years old, Ancient Egyptians were able to draw up stories about betrayal from one's own family, love and Justice! What makes it even more fun to my liking is how every being has his or her own abilities. Like how Thoth is known for his high IQ like an ancient Iron Man or Reed Richards and how Horus is like the young bad ass hero trying too take revenge on his uncle like the Lion King. But anyone notice how Horus vs Set is like Lion King's Simba vs Scar?

Oh man, how is this not at the top 3, I get if greek is higher up but really? 4th? They are the original super heroes

Dude this mythology should be in top 3. They had very powerful hero gods and villain gods. For instance Set was strong enough to move stars with his bare hands and could potentially be an ancient description of a planet buster by modern comic standards.
Egyptian gods have gone through some of the craziest hell back and forth. Horus had infinite stamina and could fight Set for 3 days straight, no good, no water. Amon Ra is basically the living tribunal then. There's Sekhmet who almost made mankind extinct when the Ra was pissed off. There were even villain magicians who could match Thoth's wisdom as a result of practicing heka( magic) to its fullest. Egypt also had some dope mythologies. They should be far up from where they are now.

4 Arthurian Mythology

What is this

5 Chinese Mythology

What did chinese mythologist do

Well, there's this freaking monkey

6 Irish Mythology

They have the cyclops but on steroids, period

7 Hindu Mythology

Hindu mythology is the oldest and, in my opinion, the best.
If you haven't read it, You're missing a huge chunk of this planet's greatest works. Literally.
From the most destructive wars to the best sagas with strong, wise and intriguing characters; cutting-edge and awesome weapons and tech; it has them all. Inspiring and moral values inducing stories that everyone can learn from. It has the most gods and goddesses, all having unique characteristics and charming personas. Ever heard about wars as destructive as the Mahabharata, weapons more deadly than Lord Indra's Vajra, gods more charming than Lord Krishna and more destruction wrecking than Lord Shiva? It also easily has the most powerful demons and sorcerers. And it seriously covers every aspect of thinking from earth,space, mystic transformations, nuclear tech, the greatest love tales,the best reigns, to other realms or whathaveyou. It is afterall referred to as THE EPIC mythology. It is the oldest mythology and hence not ...more

Mythologies aren't just myths, they describe the lifestyle of our ancestors and their civilization, they should be able to guide the future generation and no mythology but Hindu teaches the correct moral values so descriptively.

The hindu mythology have probably more characters than any other and is the oldest one. The moral values derived from them can not be compared with any other mythology
It has top rated content from destructive weapons to epic wars.
And in my opinion it makes more sense than any other of the mythology. More powerful characters, more powerful weapons, scandalous content such as haran of draupadi but still contains great moral values

It is basically the most interesting mythology . I even like Greek mythology but personally it appears to me as hindu mythology is underrated

8 Roman Mythology

Copy cats should be last

Very good

9 Japanese Mythology

Yokai is creative and extensive, and have reasons for existing.

Really well thought out, and not an anime girl in sight

10 Persian Mythology

The Contenders

11 Celtic Mythology

Celtic is awesome it should be way higher.

12 Christian Mythology

Hmm...I didn't know they referred to our doctrine as "mythology". - SoongeBill

Probably the least gruesome mythos of all of these, less action but more good vibes


13 Aztec Mythology

Gimme that heart bitch

14 Germanic Mythology

Drunk lads with swords, all I have to say

"Hey, what's wrong with it?

15 Maya Mythology
16 Buddhist Mythology
17 Babylonian Mythology
18 Mesopotamian Mythology

The Father of all mythologies. It inspired Greek Mythology and others and should be on top 5..

19 Yoruba

Pretty underrated.

20 Jewish Mythology
21 Korean Mythology
22 Ananse Stories

Ananse was probably an early world genius in fiction not for his scientific knowledge but his smarts. He could outsmart anyone and mostly got away with it. The stories begun simple but got complicated later on.

They are so good. It took a genius to form these tales.
