* In the first book, when they explain that ADHD is a manifestation of their battlefield instincts without any outlet, they also say that many of the teachers are monsters. Hence why the teachers who aren't mortal push kids they suspect towards being diagnosed- it not only alienates them a little, but as the disorder itself is survival instinct turned up to eleven hundred, suppressing it means that the kids not only have a harder time noticing any monster they might encounter, it also means that if the monster in question thinks the kid not seeing them for what they are is not enough assurance and attacks, the kid provides a much easier prey.

** Technically under that logic Tyson would never die, so that's not so bad. Though how monster resurrection works for friendly monsters isn't known. Given that [[spoiler: Percy in The House of Hades]] was worried if being Tartarus would affect [[spoiler: Mrs. O'Leary ]] in a sort of reset, it does raise a new fridge horror: could Tartarus reset a dead Cyclops from being helpful to Poseidon in his forges to an enemy of demigods everywhere?

* 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?
