Worst Percy Jackson Character Deaths

Which was the saddest character death, whether they came back or not?

The Top Ten

1 Jason Grace Jason Grace

Honestly it was so unexpected did anyone think it was coming? Except the part about the prophecy and either Piper or Jason dies, but it was totally unexpected..

If he doesn't come back Rick will have some angry fans after him. It really hurts. Jason was my favorite character. And in the next book there will be a funeral and it will hurt all over again...

Still haven't read The Burning Maze, but I know that he dies so some people will vote for him

I’m not really a fan of Jason but dang that was tough
Especially when thalia finds out

2 Zoe Nightshade

Did you notice how when Bob closed the doors of death, he asked to say hello to the stars for him? HINT HINT: Zoe Nightshade.

Left me crying in the middle of class (wouldn't be the last) - lbelle0527

She didn't deserve to die

She died as a hero :(

3 Bob

Bob died fighting for percy. Percy was never nice to him but he still risked his life to buy. Percy more time

Ahh oh my gods I CRIED IN CLASS and after months after reading it, I still cry when I think of him

Bob was like, the best character. In all of the Rick Riordan Books. Ever. Period.

Best. character. ever. So sad that he died.

4 Luke Castellan

What Luke did was wrong but I understand why he did it. How many half bloods died at the streets because the gods did not help. How many kids died because the gods were screwing around but not taking responsibility. How many kids died because the gods were too prideful to give the minor gods, their cabins. What Luke did was wrong, he tried to stop killing with killing. He did the wrong thing for the right reason.

He gets killed by a Triton that Percy held in the movie. Then in the sequel, get eaten by giants. Ouch! Get's two deaths in one franchise.

Zoe's and his were sad as hell.

He’s a true hero, no one can disagree, even if he was on Kronos’s side for a while, but remember he then regretted his choice

5 Bianca di Angelo

Oh Bianca, we all miss you! When I read this I gasped and the waterworks came like a roaring river. You had so much potential! You were so young too! Why Rick? Why not kill someone else? (*-*) :'( :'( :'( :'(

This ruined nico and sent him down the dark path and imagine what the story would be like with her?

It was so sad I almost died inside! It turned Nico into this sad depressed little boy and he just hated everything and he didn't deserve it.

When she died I was so sad. Why, Rick Riordan, Why.

6 Leo Valdez Leo Valdez Leo Valdez is a character from the book series Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan. He is one of the seven heroes in the Prophecy of Seven. He is a Greek demigod and is the son of Hephaestus, and has the ability to create and manipulate fire (pyrokinesis).

Leo has been my favorite character since his first appearance in the Lost Hero. I CRIED FOR 3 DAYS STRAIGHT BECAUSE OF HIS DEATH. Leo was amazing, I was relieved of my pain when I found out he resurrected. Leo will always be awesome and funny. His death was sad because he was brave enough to sacrifice his life for everyone else's. They would have never beat Gaea without Leo. Leo died as a hero. He and Percy and #1 in my heart!

Okay, so you kill off a main character, then you bring him back to life. But he doesn't see his friends. Like that makes it any better. - AnnaOfArendelle332

I was like no he needs to get his girlfriend and I thought he was really dead til the last chapter - lbelle0527

He was my favorite character in HoO, why did he have to die?

7 Silena Beauregard

All these other deaths were heart wrenching and well written. But this character should have survived! She was what a real strong Aphrodite girl is, not Piper. Silena owns the beauty and girliness, and that's part of what makes her such a wonderful, feminist character. Imagine if she was one of the seven! How interesting that would've been! A sweet daughter of Aphrodite who was a former spy(and people would probably still be whispering about it) who wants redemption. And she lost her boyfriend. Though this death was well written and served as great development for Clarisse, it was a waste of potential - PineconeFace

She should not have died! Cried so much, especially when she tried to make up for spying.

8 Charles Beckendorf

Very abrupt death. Made me tear up

Left me sobbing in my sister's lap like whyy - lbelle0527

This proves rick is pure evil
yet I still read him in hopes that he comes back

I literally started crying. I love Hephaestus children. They’re so underrated. I shopped Beckendirf and Silena so much and now they’re both dead. Way to go Rick. Ruining people’s lives. Thanks very much.

9 Pan

Seriously Grover spent almost all his life looking for Pan, and when he finds him, Pans all like "Oh, hey Grover. If you don't mind I'm gonna die right now. Go tell the others.


10 Festus

His death was so sad but heroic

When Festus died I cried for hours and hpurs. It may seem weird that Leo thinks a machine is his friend but... IMAGINE YOUR PET DIES!

I cried WHY

The Newcomers

? Leneus

He was a great satyr at the very end, when Grover turned him into a sapling and gave it a blessing, that was just sad ;-;

? Esperanza Valdez

The Contenders

11 Hazel Levesque Hazel Levesque

How did hazel die?

12 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase


She died?



13 Octavian

How is this bad this death everyone should have had a party - lbelle0527

Be honest, who could actually be sad that Octavian died? What a terrible character.

14 Ethan Nakamura

That was the saddest- he wanted to do the right thing...

So sad... He wanted to do the right thing.


15 Thalia Grace Thalia Grace

She died so Annabeth, Grover, and Luke could get back to camp half blood safely. Thalia didn't have the saddest death but it is forgotten. Thalia was thrown by a cyclops. Zeus saved her by making her a tree. She came back to life by the golden fleece

16 Frank Zhang

Since when did frank die? - lx4198

Errr... Frank's not dead ovo

17 Grandma Zhang

Seriously,Frank only has her left

18 Crest

He saved the day. Hopefully Apollo will make him a Music God too.

19 Magnus Chase
20 Hera

I think annabeth agrees that nobody likes Hera

21 Uncle Randolph

He is alive but he trying to see his family who are dead - lbelle0527

22 Damasen

He is liy

23 Daedalus/Quintus

He died as a hero sacrificing himself to save camp half blood. Destroying the labrinth and the monsters with it

24 Annabeth

Guys I know she’s not dead but I see headcanons where she dies and it’s literally heartbreaking when Percy is so sad

25 Heloise

She was Jo and Emmie's beautiful griffin, one of a pair of the only breeding griffins left. I was honestly so sad when she died:(
