* When monsters die, their essence returns to Tartarus and they reform after an unspecified period of time. Cyclopes are monsters, so the same would happen to them. Tyson is a Cyclops, so when he dies, he will not get to go to Elysium with Percy and the other half-bloods. Neither will Grover, who will be reincarnated into a plant when ''he'' dies.

** The marriage being a happy one is only one (more hopeful) interpretation of the myth. I know several: one where Persephone went to the Underworld on her own and sought Hades out, one where he courted her and she agreed to go with him, one where he kidnapped her and she grew to love him, and another where he kidnapped her and she never loved him. Regardless, happy marriages can sour -- that's why we (but not the gods) have the option of divorce.

*** In fact, going by evidence from the sequel series, this seems to be no coincidence as ''Zeus appears to have picked the name'' [[note]][[spoiler: as in her brother's case]] [[/note]].

** Adding to that, she specifically mentions that when monsters found her and attacked, her family saw her as the cause and blamed her for getting all of them into danger. Even if she knew she wasn't calling them and felt the accusations unfair as she didn't WANT to be attacked, after several of those incidents it is actually plausible for a 7-year old to come to the conclusion that 1, her family saw her as a burden and danger, and 2, they will be in no danger without her.

* In ''Percy Jackson's Greek Gods'', the story of how Zeus got his father to return his eaten siblings is largely expanded, as most sources only mention a potion or even a sucker punch to the solar plexus, whereas here Zeus served as a cupbearer. It makes perfect sense though to add that detail: after all, Kronos was king of the universe at the time, with powerful lackeys all protecting him, and Zeus only got his mighty lightning bolt after he set his siblings free. Obviously he would need stealth, and who better to pull off a poisoning than a cupbearer?

** I thought that line was only referring to the Monster Donuts chain.

** I guess it's pointing out how the abundance of fast food chains in the world today indicates a very higher presence of monsters...which, to my knowledge, still doesn't qualify as Fridge Horror since it was what the line was originally meant to convey. Isn't FrudgeLogic something that only becomes clear if you think about it too much?

*** Is there any evidence from the myths to back this up? In most of the stories I've read, the period where Demeter allows crops to wither has always been referred to as "winter." And even if it ''were'' summer in Greece, it's still illogical that it would be that way in present-day America, where the crops grow quite healthily in the summer, and the harvest time is seen as being in the fall.

* The second film crowbars in an explanation for why Percy can't use his water manipulation to help his friends escape from Charybdis, by saying that the Sea of Monsters isn't in Poseidon's domain. Moving past how stupid this sounds on its own (as it goes against the book ''and'' the original Greek myths), shouldn't that have meant that Percy's other water powers (navigation and healing) should've stopped working, as well?

** This Troper doesn't understand what is Fridge Horror about this. Can a fellow Troper explain, please?
