* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Acted as this to all her relatives when they were going through hard times. Every Greek settlement, town and city was required to have a temple to her because her family would consider it open season on smiting if she wasn't acknowledged.

* AlmightyJanitor: Both as a trope and quite literally. Hestia is one of the six most powerful beings in Greek myth and she spends her days cooking, cleaning and giving her family a shoulder to cry on.

Goddess of the hearth, meaning that she was the goddess of home, house and family. An important goddess, but one whose domains did not lend to participation in many stories, which is why most people forget she exists. This, in addition to her modest and discreet nature, would keep her out of trouble. Her Roman equivalent was '''Vesta''' (as in "Vestal virgins").

* [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower Hearth Is An Awesome Power]]: Although today, Hestia's domains are considered rather insignificant, she was one of the most important gods in the entire Greek Pantheon (though this isn't reflected in the myths). She was the goddess one would pray to for most of the daily troubles. Still considered to have awesome power by some modern worshipers. She was traditionally the center of the home (where the hearth was located), the city (because there was a central hearth for every city) and the earth (because they thought there was a fire in the center of the earth and the stones and earth surrounding this fire kept it from blazing out of control...which is funnily enough, sorta close to the actual truth of the Earth's molten core). And since they believed in a geocentric universe, she could be interpreted as the center of the universe. She is officially the goddess of political buildings. And as the goddess of the altar she has, or at least had, a role in all religious ceremonies. Heart is an awesome power indeed!

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Somehow survived having his mother being burned to ashes after seeing Zeus's true form... while she was pregnant with him. Or, depending on the myth, having his entire body except his heart eaten by titans as a child. The Greeks thus gave him the epitaph of dimētōr, which means 'of two mothers', the second being Zeus who transferred him to his thigh until he was born {or regrown}.

** Regardless of his popularity, he most definitely never had any plans to overthrow his brother, or any huge resentment for getting stuck with the Underworld. He and Zeus actually got along well enough that Hades could just waltz in and ask him for a bride, or request to have someone blasted with lightning, and some texts have Zeus emphasize the comparability of their lots when Demeter complains to him about the whole Persephone deal.
