Top Ten Worst Percy Jackson Characters

The Top Ten

1 Piper McLean Piper McLean

I hate that whining little brat! Thank you for putting her in her place. She is constantly drooling over Jason, gets jealous for no reason, fishes for compliments, constantly has to get her butt saved, but only appreciates her savior if it's Jason. And she whines about her life much more than other characters who have WAY more rite to. Percy had an abusive stepfather, Leo's mother died and his aunt Rosa turned his family against him, Hazel was born in segregation and lost her mother and SHE died as well, only to sacrifice Elysium so her mother wouldn't face punishment, Franks mother died in a war, Jason was taken from his family when he was two years old, Nicos mother died, his memory was wiped, and he was plopped out of time for many years, Reyna had to kill her father to protect her sister, Thalia's mother fell off the wagon and Thalia thought she lost her little brother, had to run away, then her mother died in a car accident. And what does Piper whine about? HER FAMOUS DAD doesn't ...more

Compare book 1 Piper to book 5 Piper. In book 1, we saw the Piper we all imagine. In book 5, we saw the Piper with the same infuriating personality but also an obviously forced attempt to make her a better fighter and to fit the "Likeable" ideal we saw with Jason, which was worse. Shifting gears, focus on how books 3-4 were written. A series of predicaments that one of the seven or another uses their skills to solve. While many of these felt natural, the problems that Piper featured in met a very narrow set of circumstances to allow a reasonable way out for the gang. Riordan also develops her talents to broaden the situations and, while this is not exclusive to her (Hazel using the Mist) it does seem more obvious. One last thing to analyze is personality and her life. First we should touch on the issue of parentage. While this isn't her fault, her reaction to it is. In terms of godly parents, her and Jason clearly lucked out, compared to the difficulties Leo and Hazel faced-along with ...more

She isn't that bad! She told Drew off for being a bad example to the other Aphrodite kids! She's really brave and caring.
Look, I know her problems are not as terrible as the others, but that doesn't mean she has no right to be angry or sad. She is not whiny because she is still willing to help the team when needed! She didn't wallow in self-pity or something! And, what's wrong with her thinking that Jason is better than Percy?! Of course she thinks that her boyfriend is the best person there is! Nothing wrong with that! she didn't disrespect Percy or anything! She just like Jason more! In fact, Percy was one of her friends!
I know she is Tomboy, but what is wrong with that! She's different from the other Aphrodite kids and understands that make-up isn't the most important thing in the world. It's not her fault that she's really beautiful, and she doesn't brag about it either. She's an awesome character that is beautiful and powerful at the same time. - EllenseaFornost

Well too bad. None of the others got bullied huh? HAZEL GOT SEGREGATED for Petes sake! And tormented by Gaia and her mother at times. Percy got bullied by Nancy and his abusive stepfather in book one, and Matt in book two. Leo would've gotten bullied but he handled it himself. Frank got bullied by pretty much everyone but Hazel and Reyna in the Roman camp. Piper got bullied by a couple snobby girls. That's it. And yes I respect her being a tomboy daughter of Aphrodite, but if you want that title, Pipes, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO ACT LIKE A TOMBOY. She doesn't. And sometimes using your head is what's best, sometimes using your heart is. And that's kinda the problem with Piper. We don't need to know how pretty she is every other chapter. Jasper annoys the heck out of me, which is a shame because Jason is awesome. And are you nuts? Of course Piper can't defend herself, because she's a fictional character! Go slap YOURSELF. Then take a hike. A permanent one

Hate her. Made leo feel bad. Me kill her

She is literally 100% bad. I mean, other supposedly bad characters at least had a personality or some good side to them. (e.g. Luke isn't all bad) But this person is just utterly horrible! - EllenseaFornost

Anyone who makes Leo suffer I hate

Horrible simply horrible person

3 Octavian

As I read these comments, I face a dreadful decision about how this fan base reacts to Octavian. Nobody really understands that he may actually be calling for understanding from the beginning. His family was one the most highest and respected in the roman communities and imagine trying, to live up to that. Remember people judge and if your family was well respected and people were acting very strange or nicer than they usually are, or treating you better than every one else. It will makes you feel like an outcast and then trying to live up to his family's image

I believe there is more than meets the eye with this character.

Shouldn't he be in first place?!?!?!

Octavian should go to Tartarus, then he should be tortured he was the worst. I hate him with a passion

4 Drew Tanaka

Nah, Drew is great. Unlike Piper, she has character. She's cool, stands up for herself and has her own opinions and will say it. Unlike Piper, who hides behind Jason and only cares about Jason. And her many insecurities, of course. Drew was the highlight of the Lost Hero.

She bullied piper, disrespected silena and bossed around the rest of the Aphrodite cabin

I'm voting for Drew only because of the things she said about Silena. Also, she's kind of a jerk, but mostly because she said that Silena deserved to die because she wouldn't break up with Beckendorf.

Am I the only one wondering how Piper is more hated than Drew? I mean seriously. I LIKE Piper. Yeah, she's a bit of a Mary Sue, but not to much to get annoying. Compared to Drew she actually is pretty deep, and her complaining about her father is very normal. Don't compare her reasons to the others in the seven, actually think about why she's complaining. And who says tomboys can't be tomboyish on most occasions but act girly sometimes? She is the daughter of Aphrodite.

5 Jason Grace Jason Grace

Jason is honestly, to me at least, just Riordan trying to repeat his success with Percy. Except all those personality traits, and flaws, and goofs were just taken out and replaced with perfect golden-boy. His flaws are not really addressed, his relationships with other people is half hearted at best, he doesn't have anything that really makes him stand out and be worthy of the protagonist title. Even Piper said that he stuck to the rules to much and he never evolved past it- the reason why Percy is such a great leader is because he 1) new when to break the rules 2) understood imperfection/mistakes because he himself had a lot of flaws 3) he had a legitimate build up to why he was doing what he was doing. Jason was just raised by wolves, dropped off at camp, and became leader because of his daddy. You don't know why he wants to protect or fight for people because he doesn't make connections with any of them.

I despise Jason. That is simply because of Piper's unfounded adoration of him. How dare he force Percy Jackson out of the camp? How dare he assume he could beat Percy in a battle? Jason is a cold, flat character who understands duty, and that is it. He has no sense of humour, major character flaws or character development, and we are expected to love him, believe he is 'the bravest'. Percy offered to relinquish his praetorship for him, and he DID NOT DECLINE. Excuse me? Did you restore honour to the legion and defeat and army of Gaea's forces? Percy did more than you ever could, all in four days. My hatred is founded in the fact that he competes with Percy, and he does it with unabashed arrogance and expectation. If any hero had to die, I would rejoice if it was him. He offers no entertainment value, except when Percy finds an opportunity to prove how much greater he is.

The book makes him seem like he's an amazing leader but in all honesty, he doesn't seem very special other than the fact that he has strong powers. Piper says "He was the bravest person she knew" blah blah but in his point of view in the first book all he ever talked about was how scared he was and ugh. He didn't have a distinct personality or certain traits that made you like him

I just started the second series, and after reading that he thought he could kill Percy boils my blood. Yeah, Golden Boy, I'd like to see you try to kill him.

6 Hera

Ugh... nobody likes Hera. It's not the demigods' fault for EXISTING!

Used to think she was the worse...until I read the myths about her husband.

I love Hera. She is the only goddess willing to sacrifice anything to save her family. She risks isolation from her Olympus family when uniting the camps, yet she doesn't hesitate. While the other gods are content to stand around and allow the giants to rise, Hera understands sacrifice and makes them. Sure, a few poeple have amnesia and spend a few weeks on a ship, but they are DEMIGODS. They'll get over. You go, Hera.

She threw hephaestus off mount olympus and took percy away from annabeth for 8 months.

7 Piper

Since the moment I heard of her, I kind of hated Piper. First of all, Piper is always called pretty. Like, we get it. And you can go on saying that it's her fault and stuff but actually, she just TRIES to draw attention to herself. Like she goes and tells everybody her father Tristan Mclean, like if you want to keep it a secret, ACTUALLY KEEP IT A SECRET. Plus she seems a bit narcissistic, don't you think? She also always plays the damsel in distress, like go ahead and actually solve your problems instead of just whining about it. She's literally so insecure, and not the type of insecure you can relate to, like weight issues or anything, she's always just so whiny about everything like everything has to go her way and then an "insecurity" about Jason is thrown in so you can feel sorry for her? No. Stop. The only thing she does is charm speak, I mean you could hire a middle age salesperson to replace her. Oh, and obsess over Jason. And get jealous. Other than that, I kind of just hate ...more

Anybody who is saying piper is bad cause she is whiny clearly just got the story from Wikipedia. Because she is not that whiny. Yes she complains because her dad was captured by Gaia who was trying to force piper to choose to betray and kill her friends, or let her own father die. Oh...yeah. I'm sure that is nothing to cry about. And it certainly doesn't help that her boyfriend forgot about her and she found out all her memories are fake. Yeah of course she has nothing to cry about. And she didn't broadcast her father being famous, it just slipped one time. The other times was with trusted friends. (what you cannot share secrets with your friends? )

And yes she is a bit of the jealous type but anybody who actually READ the series not just skimmed would know that is her fatal flaw and she is Aphrodite cabin so jealousy wouldn't surprise me.

And useless? She got rid of ghosts that possessed Jason and Leo to kill each other and even Percy. She put Hercules in line.

I LOVE Piper. She's strong, brave, she brought someone back from the dead! That was within weeks of finding out she was a demigod. And also, she's the first Aphrodite child we see that doesn't care about appearances. There's nothing wrong with wanting to look fabulous, but Riordan points out that you don't have to love makeup, Jewelry and clothes to be a child of Aphrodite. Piper shows us what it truly means to be a child of Aphrodite. It means to be loving, not breaking hearts. She realizes that Aphrodite is the most powerful god/goddess, that her power trumps ZEUS'. I'm pretty sure if you're more powerful than the so called "King of the Gods", you're pretty awesome. Also, why is she #1 and 10 on this list?

Yup, she's here twice. That's how bad she is

8 Gabe Ugliano

Yep, I'm kind of shocked that he didn't make it to number 1 on this list.
Percy and Sally are so awesome they didn't deserve someone like him! (I'm so glad Sally's with Paul now)
I'm really happy that he is currently a piece of stone. - EllenseaFornost

Seriously. Gabe is absolutely bad. He even SMACKED Sally Jackson's butt! Disgusting. You should never beat a woman's butt! And he treats Percy really horribly.

People complain about Piper, and literally forget about Smelly Gabe.
He abused Percy and Sally for YEARS, and deserved everything that he got.

1# He repeatedly abused Sally and Percy for years 2# He has no possible motives for this except for him being a jerk while characters have possible reasonable motives since Octavian could have had a lot of pressure put on him to live up to his family's high legacy and feel isolated since the majority legions seemed to look to him and Reyna (Jason was gone for a large period of time so I'm not including him ) for answers which could have caused him to crack. Drew could have been nicer before becoming councilor and had a friendship with Silena but felt the need to disrespect her and be a jerk to hide her pain.Drew also could have been ignored by her father so when she became councilor she would be trying to get attention. Drew also could have been idolized for being able to charmspeak so she felt special and felt threatened when Piper was able to resist her charmspeak. Rosa Valdez could have been attached to Leo's mom and since the fire started because of Leo losing control over his ...more

10 Meg McCaffrey

The girl has to deal with a manipulative Nero who pretends to care about her but in reality just controls and uses her. And she still manages to stay on the right side and help Apollo. I get that she might be overpowered, but it's a nice change to see a powerful daughter of Demeter. (because in the previous series we only see children of Demeters growing plants) - EllenseaFornost

Meg's not that horrible to me. I mean, I can see why people (demigods) like Connor and Sherman would hate her, but I think she's no that bad.

I love Meg. She's more of a side character but I love her. She's a badass kind of like Ginny Weasley. Both are strong, got nerves, loyal and well Meg is really selfless but I'm not sure about Ginny

Meg is VERY immature. Acts like a 5 year old to be honest. Fights like she is on the street. Hasn’t she learned any manners? My gosh horrible character, a Mary Sue. And everyone cares for her! No one even the slightest actually says something bad to her, whether is be Apollo, Calypso, or even Sally. So overrated, acts like she is the best when she is not.

The Contenders

11 Gaea

She is a primordial villain, and she wants to make earth a nicer place, I suppose, both of which I can respect. But I hate most of her followers, and the ways she got them (think Phineas) or tried. She literally offered to enslave Percy (unforgivable) if Calypso killed Leo (would have been unforgivable). How sick can you get? She also almost caused Leo's death ( yes, you guessed it, unforgivable).

She is really evil, but a really well-developed villain. - EllenseaFornost

She is a villain, but as character she's pretty well thought - out. She has a personality (unlike, for example, Meg from Trials of Apollo) and she's not overpowered (powerful, yes, but remember, she's a primordial). Well, despite she is evil, in some way... I like her. I mean, not because she did those horrible things to The Seven, just because her personality. And this is a list of THE WORST CHARACTERS (Mary Sues, etc), not the most evil.

She was the villain of the series. This is a list for the WORST characters, not the most annoying (Piper). - Minecraftcrazy530

12 Orion

Orion is a sexist jerk

Orion is nothing but a sexist little twit nugget

I honestly can not believe he was not on this list. I also can't believe so many of my favorite characters are on this list.

He's weird, mean, and he tried to hurt Artemis, so duh, he's the worst

13 Kronos

How is Atlas not on this list? Kronos is awesome when it comes to power, but Atlas is a straight-up monster. For God's sake, he effectively killed his own daughter, imprisoned Artemis and acted like an absolute brat

Why the heck isn't he number 1?

Kronos is spelt wrong.

Kronos is my rival. EVIL. how does one like Kronos?

14 Frank Zhang

Frank is sweet. Although he was mean to Leo, that just proves that he had flaws. And, the guy was hitting on his girlfriend. I don't know one guy who wouldn't be rude about that. Frank is sweet and he loves Hazel- that's all I would ask for. That, and although people are mean, that doesn't make them bad. Frank proved how good he was in SoN. And how could anyone say he's boring? He can turn into animals, he turned into a ' iguana to get out of Chinese handcuffs.

I TRY to respect people's opinions and all that, but... THIS IS COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS. Frank is higher up on the worst characters list than on the best characters list, like no! Frank is a sweet, caring, humble, demigod! People hate him just because he was rude to Leo in the Mark of Athena, but really, who can blame him (can I also mention that eventually he came to become great friends with the guy). Leo liked his girlfriend, and we all know how much Frank loves Hazel. I mean, show him some love already! His mom died in the war, and his father turned out to be the one God that he didn't want to claim him. Later, he watched his grandmothers house BURST INTO FLAMES! How can you say he is boring when he can take the form of any animal he pleases! Sorry... I'm giving up on this website. I can't stand that more people dislike Frank than Gaea, Atlas, Kronos... Octavian for sake! WELL BOI BYE

How can one hate Frank?
He is one of the best characters!
He is so humble and nice to everyone. He was kind of mean to Leo but he was jealous because of the Leo and Hazel thing. Let's be honest here. It is impossible for one to be nice to every single person. That is totally understandable and relatable! and he is SO sweet to Hazel! - EllenseaFornost

What's wrong with Frank? He's so sweet!

15 Zeus

Dirty, rotten, paranoid king who will even close the doors to Olympus, go against the greater good to keep his own power. Disrespectful to the demigods - Aquaman101

The reason why this is so low on the list...nobody wants to anger him.

But in all seriousness I used to think that Zues was the meanest character in percy jackson (for gods I even put their mythology into consideration) but then I read about his son. :3 Hercules is an even bigger jerk than his own father.

Gees! He is such a retard! He refuses to listen to other people who know best! Like when Kronos was attacking Manhattan he went to fight the big monster instead of be smart and protect Olympus! Poseidon saved his butt!

Power-hungry control freak that's constantly paranoid about being overthrown by his own children so much that he EATS his wife and tries to kill his nieces and nephews.

18 Luke Castellan

Why is he on this list at all? Luke was awesome. Not only was he a sympathetic character, he was the Hero of the Great Prophecy, he was an amazing swordsman, and, even set in the background of Ares, Daedalus, Atlas, Polyphemus and even Kronos, Luke was a far more compelling villain with true motivations and heroic qualities. Also, except for Percy and Dionysus, Luke was the only character in the films that actually worked!

Luke is not bad he is good. If you have read the series you would know he is great and that he is the hero!

I think Luke is the worst because not only did he try to kill Percy like three times, he also betrayed Annabeth,Thalia, and the rest of the camp. At first I thought he was the good guy and that Percy was going to be the bad guy, but about half way through the book I realized I was really wrong.

19 The Gigantes
20 Hades

You all do realize that Hades is the only god of the twelve Olympians that was faithful to his wife and didn't constantly throw his children into hazardous battles and hardships? Rather, he respected their boundaries and didn't try to invade their lives every paragraph. He didn't cheat on his wife like his two brothers until the diAngelo twins and Hazel came along (which was to be determined by the Fates), and he remained sane and chill for the entire series except for the Greek/Roman personality split, which occurred to every god except for the primordial gods and Aphrodite, Dionysus, and Nemesis. So if you ask me, he's a very important character who was crucial to the plot and the series.

What's your problem! Hades is the bomb! He could kick Zeus's butt any day

Hades Is Amazing, in my opinion he included the demigods the most! He shouldn't be on the list at all.

WHAT? Why is he in this list? Hades is not that bad at all, I actually feel sorry for him. Remove him off this rediculous list

21 Annabeth Chase Annabeth Chase

Annabeth is a typical and a cheap character. Her portrayal is basic; Riordan tells that she's smart etc without showing it. It's the epitome of a crap writing but I don't blame Riordan because in order to a writer's being capable of writing an actual smart character, he too needs to be smart. Riordan doesn't qualify that. For example, he qualifies a joke/sarcasm tone so his characters are funny when he wants to write them as that. Annabeth on the other hand, when she supposedly have to be smart, just isn't, it's poorly done.

Also, Annabeth's punching and seeing Percy as lesser is not funny by the way. This is not a crappy shounen anime where Tsundere acts like a trash but it's played for the laughs. I can say okay to some scenes at some degree, but there are many scenes where Annabeth's punching etc made no sense like judo-flip, Annabeth's punching Percy's stomach when he didn't invite her to dance etc. Riordan often goes too much that he doesn't realize it's getting started to ...more

In my opinion, Annabeth is just that character added in to keep the main character at bay (Percy) Seriously, think about it. She was added in so that the readers could be reminded that "Oh there's a strong female character that isn't controlled by men and is smart and can kick your butt.." Like, if Percy was smart and Annabeth wasn't a character nobody would read the books because Percy would be way too OP. Also, Annabeth is too possessive over Percy and thinks she's better than everyone else. It's a shame that Percy didn't go for Rachel. She's way better. She would have been a great warrior.. but she became the oracle. Eh.

Annabeth is WAYY overrated. Someone said that telling is different than showing. I kinda liked her in the first series, but her actions in the second series made my disgust for her grow until I absolutely hated her.
Let's explore why, shall we?
Another person on here said that Heroes of Olympus ruined her, and the way she treats Percy isn't okay. I agree, wholeheartedly. It seems like he doesn't want to be in a relationship at all anymore, and I would understand why. She's way too possessive. In the first series, she was twelve and had a crush on Luke Castellan, who was nineteen at the time. He would be twenty-three at the end of the series, so that still would've been more than a bit of pedophilia if they'd gotten engaged in a relationship, and she probably, no DEFINITELY, knew that, but she still didn't even try not to crush on him.
All in all, there's a ton of reasons why I hate Annabeth now. That's why I ship her and Piper. Gotta ship those two worst female characters, ...more

All she does is be arrogant towards EVERYONE. We get it, you are smart, now chill. Hubris is her fatal flaw but she never tries to change or develops from it. BAD WRITING.
Another thing, calling Percy stupid and "Seaweed Brain" is a insult. Time and time again he saves their asses from danger. Where is his credit?! Even Percy thinks he is dumb (and feels bad about it) and it honestly sucks.
To me, Percabeth is toxic.

22 Rachel Elizabeth Dare

We shouldn't hate Rachel just because she liked Percy! I mean, what's wrong with that? Percy is so nice that liking him is perfectly understandable. She got in Percabeth's way, but how is that her fault? When she kissed Percy, Percabeth wasn't even completely official. It was pretty obvious but not official yet. Rachel just had feelings for Percy and expressed it. She didn't do anything wrong.
Rachel is amazing. She is artistic and talented. What's more, she is so BRAVE. She just got confirmed by Percy that monsters are real in Battle of the Labyrinth but in that VERY YEAR, she nailed a titan in the eye with a hairbrush! That took A LOT of courage.
Guys, please appreciate Rachel as a character with a personality and not just an obstacle for Percabeth! - EllenseaFornost

Rachel is not the worst character! How can people say that? She is artistic, impulsive, and chooses to live a different life from what her parents wanted.
... I am surprise Jason is not the first one on the list...

Getting in the way of ships is NOT a legit reason to hate someone.

She is a jerk that Stell Percy from annabeth and Stells black jack without letting Percy know.

24 Nico di Angelo Nico di Angelo Nico di Angelo is a fictional character created by Rick Riordan.He appears in Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Hero of Olympus, and parts of Trails of Apollo. As a son of Hades, the boy is a demigod. He befriended Percy and had many roles in his long time appearance including stopping Minos, fighting more.

He should be on the best character list, not here!
He is so tough, he was just a kid when his sister died! And even though he hated Percy after Bianca died, he still cared about Percy so much in Battle of the Labyrinth! He is one of the saddest characters! Sister and mother died, stuck in casino for many years, scared that he wouldn't be accepted because he is gay and also because his dad is Hades. He convinced his dad to help Olympus! He played such a major role in Last Olympian. Then in HoO, he and Reyna were practically as important as the Seven. Without him, who knew what would've happened. He is such an awesome half-brother to Hazel! He didn't let hardships break him, they made him stronger. His fatal flaw is holding grudges but he got over Percy not being able to save Bianca. He got through Tartarus alone. Just think about that. His willpower is incredible. He is awesome, powerful but relatable all at the same time. - EllenseaFornost

Why is he on this list. He lost everything he had, and yet did not turn to Kronos. He is one of the bravest.

Whiny depressed guy

Why Nico?! Bis sister died he Fell in love with Percy his mother died, too his father is quite unfriendly to him and many people hate him?! That's not fair! The poor boy! He's one of bravest people in Percy Jackson and heroes of Olympus! I like him

25 Aphrodite

Ok I will admit Aphrodite was a harsh goddess. And she was about the most selfish goddess there was. But you know what? I found her the most interesting of the goddesses. She actually does care a lot for her children. She has a nice side. She just has a selfish side as well. But I wouldn't expect much more from the goddess of beauty and love. Selfishness comes with the territory.

She is so rude to others and she's the worst one for revenge

Eh, she is interesting but that doesn't mean she is one of the ''worst''s. Aphrodite is vengeful (like all the other gods well...) extremely vain, petty, jealous...(like all the other gods...)

Piper exists because of her

26 Calypso

Thanks for Riordan that had turned into one of the most modest, calm and helpful character that had made an appear in the pjo series, into a bratty, sucker, annoying girl that had cringiness pulled into her character.

I get that, you know. I really do. Calypso was acted like this towards Leo in the HoO series, but it can be said that she acted like that because of she was bitter and angry because of her curse. But now, in the ToA? Nope. She was just drastically turned into a brat that is spoiled and annoying girl with losing all of her decency that had shown before. I do not know what is Riordan's thinking, but turning Calypso into like that... how is suppose to make the things good? Why can not we get a decent relationship that a person who is not abusive, crappy, bratty, annoying to another? Caleo is so sucks that it often stinks.

I hate that she gets hate for dating leo, that's totally unfair. let's be real here, none of us are going to date leo and if you'd rather leo was alone forever just because you can't date him, then you aren't much of a fan. I don't see any other reason here why she's a bad person, so clearly she isn't and you're being biased and unfair towards calypso - pjo

She's two thousand years old but she had to date the boy I love. Stupid girl in her stupid in her stupid island!

He obviously likes piper, but if that was a ship I would kill myself

Overall just a huge jerk I h he

He betrayed zoë:(


OH MY GODS! If you think Rick Roidan's version of Hercules, wait scratch that ancient Greece's version of Hercules was this sweet clumsy awkward boy who can "go the distance" your in for a shock. This guy is NOTHING like that Disney sweet heart. He's almost as bad as Hera...and that's an achievement in itself. Then again Disney didn't do Hera much justice either...

He polluted a poor water nymph's river wasn't enough leaving the poor girl sick, he screwed over poor Zoe, he also cheated on his wife...and really didn't treat woman right. I guess that also is a trait he inherited from his father. It wasn't just his way with woman. What got me to say he was a horrible person was his encounter with Jason and Piper. So first he starts off complaining a bunch about how the gods mistreated him. So he stated he normally gives demigods simple tasks right? Well sadly when he finds out Hera was the one who sent them on the mission his heart changed. ...more

29 Athena

She deserves the hate she gets. And, her only mistakes are cursing Medusa and Arachne? Yeah sure dude, yeah sure. Check some facts; this is not surely true. So period. Athena looks like a decent goddess but in the actuality, she is as much as worse as the other gods. It's just that her actions get glossed over.

Athena is suck, just like the other Olympians. She cursed Medusa and her sisters and made them gorgons, Athena is the basic reason all that demigods and mortals were killed and turned into stone by Medusa. She cursed Arachne and doomed her whole life, plus, because of Athena, all that demigods (her own children) died just because Athena doomed Arachne's whole life and made her a monster! She hates Romans for actually no reason. She is dumb (yes, she is. And I do not care she is supposedly the goddess of wisdom. Supposedly Zeus is also god of the oaths and justice. Athena is dumb and a jerk.) She doesn't deserve that 'wisdom' title in her name.

She is the best compared to other Olympians. And we forget that she is immortal. She has been exist for thousands of years and her mistakes are cursing Medusa and Arachne. I'm sorry but she's my favourite Olympian and she doesn't deserve all of those insults.

She is supa cool

30 Arachne

Okay, so ANNABETH, a 16-17 year old girl who's boyfriend disappeared without a trace for 8 MONTHS, was yelled at by her mother to go find a statue or kill some romans and managed NOT ago kill Jason when she was working next to him for 6 months, is seen as 'way to possessive' and is hated OVER ARACHNE? WHAT? JEEZ PEOPLE! JEEZ!

I feel sorry. Sure, she was prideful, but so was Annabeth. Athena turned her in into a spider after she WON the contest. Athena. Really? Arachne was the best weaver, but Athena tore up her works. It's just not FAIR.

She was annoying and was boastful. Plus she was going to kill Annabeth and ruin Percy's life. She tried to go up against a ATHENA'S daughter and expected to win.


31 Ethan Nakamura

Person who says Ethan is a traitor and hates him, you are wrong. I can see exactly why he wanted to go to Kronos's side. Minor gods should have had more respect. Ethan is my fave character.

Ethan was great!

Ahem. WHY IS HE ON HERE!? HE WAS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER! (Along with Chris and Malcolm. What? I'm a fan of minor characters)

I voted this but only so I can yell!
ETHAN NAKAMURA IS THE BEST CHARACTER IN THE PJO SERIES! I mean,who can blame him if his mother pretty much HATED him and Kronos was MUCH more appealing than the fact that he would spend so long in a filled up cabin.
Also points for stabbing Annabeth!
Also also, mr mcHottie Luke Castellan- seriously? Wouldn't YOU join too?

32 Atlas

How is he not higher on this list than Annabeth, Nico and Rachel (just to name a few)? - EllenseaFornost

He's a bum

One name: Zoë. We will never forgive you - PineconeFace

Atlas NEEDS to be higher on the list. Yeah, Kronos was bad but he was cooler than Atlas if that makes sense. Plus, in PJO I had absolutely fallen in love with Zöe and hoped she’d be a main character - what happened? She was killed by her own father! I know Kronos tried to kill his children but he had a prophecy - Atlas didn’t. He didn’t do it for gain - he just hated her. At least Kronos had a reason.

33 Alex Fierro

I don't care what your pronouns are now! - FrozenHatingPokefan


34 Nancy Bobofit

Oi so annoying

Nancy is extremely annoying and she is always picking on Grover just because he is a bit scrawny! She makes fun of Percy as well just because he is unique

35 Magnus Chase
36 Percy Jackson Percy Jackson Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a fictional character, the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

Boring, one dimensional, Mary Stu, overpowered as hell.

Whenever people are saying Jason is so much perfect and flawless; and because of that they do not like him, I want to laugh so hard with gagging. How on Earth, when Jason is perfect, but Percy is not? He is much more perfect than Jason had been. Jason, even if he is a crappy character, had shown much more imperfectness, flaws than Percy has shown in the books.

By the way, Riordan does even think about writing a scene which includes the fact that, you know, Percy's those supposed flaws of him a.k.a. 'caring to much for his friends.' and 'being too loyal to them', are actually, in fact flaws that happens to be bad traits when the time comes with showing and writing them as that? For the hell... Riordan doesn't even know how to deal with those traits with proving them that, they actually are flaws. Rather than showing that those things are causing some serious consequences on the series; he instead of choose to do not ...more

I need to know how you guys think he's the worst when you read through 5 books of him as the main character.

I don't know him but I hate him!

I'd like to find the person that made this list so I can slap them upside the head. If you don't like the pjo and the hoo series then just say instead of putting up this stupid list and wasting everyone's time. Although some of the comments about the characters were reasonable you took it too far putting Percy, Annabeth a Thalia on this list. TO FAR!

37 Bacchus

He made the demigods fight two giants alone before finally helping at the end, even after they gave him a huge sacrifice.

If you thought Mr. D was bad, he's worst (like all the roman forms)

38 Silena B.

Silena was the worst character ever sure she "died a hero's death" but everything would have been easier if she wouldn't have been a spy. And Charles Beckandorf wouldn't have died

39 Khione

That incredibly awkward moment when you realize that Khione is technically a Disney princess...:0

WHY the heck is Khione even on this list? Sure, she can be considered Elsa's evil twin from another dimension, but STILL! She's probably one of the best villains in the franchise (besides Luke, but that's debatable) because she does such a good job at being a nemesis. She's a jerk! She puts Piper down a lot! And that climactic battle? Easily my favorite set of chapters in the series. I just love both Khione and Piper, and that fact that people don't like them pisses me off!

Love Khione, hate Piper

She sent Leo to Ogygia, this preventing him from being available. Damn you, Khione.

40 Medea

She is a psychopath!

She was a cool villain though

41 Kellie

I hate she


42 Prometheus

Huh? For a titan he is still friendly to Percy

43 Ouranos
44 Chione

Actually I don't like Piper but I don't understand why Chione is so unfriendly to her and the others! She want to destroy her father!

It's Khione - natalily

45 Hephaestus

Rubbish character doesn't help Leo, doesn't warn him about fetus dying.

Who the hell is fetus and how did he die?
*dragon’s name is Festus*

46 Mr D

He's funny sometimes, but he is that charactet that,hets on my nerves.

Actually Mr D gets in my nervs sometimes when he is so unfriendy but then I must laugh ab out his jokes :) I don't understand why he is on this list! He is a god! And they are sometimes linke that!

47 Ares

Oh come on Ares was halarious. Yes he was cocky and arrogant but what do you expect from the god of war? Do you want him to be joyful and always breaking into poetry like Apollo does? Kind gentle would never hurt a fly?

Besides he was halarious. When Clarisse was pretty much kick butt on the battle field he was there yelling through the crowd bragging about his daughter (and embarrassing the poor girl). When he was in Mars for not only did he embrace poor Frank by announcing how proud he was in front of the camp ( nothing like having your godly parent put you in the spotlight) he gave out what is the most lung bursting hilarious prophecies there was.

How could anybody put this god on the list? He was just kick butt funny.

Nah, Ares was fine I loved his cocky attitude he was actually OKAY

Ares hates percy

He might be okey if he wasn't so cocky. I hate people who are cocky and arrogant (Are's) I guess he would be cool if he wasn't so arrogant.

I honestly liked her. She and Leo are the only interesting ones out of the new characters. She undergoes many changes, she literally went from the shy one to awesome! - AnnaOfArendelle332

You're all gonna kill me for this, but I honestly think she's a bit of a sue due to how she seems flawless.

GUYS! She SACRIFICED HERSELF to stop a giant from being reborn! That's almost as selfless as Leo! Everyone LOVES him for doing that, but it seems you idiots (just the Hazel haters, the rest of you're all awesome) forgot that Hazel did almost the same thing!

She doesn't seem to have any flaws to me. And she comes off as boring because of that.
