* When Annabeth, Hazel, and Piper meet Aphrodite/Venus, Aphrodite says that she's free from the Greek/Roman split because love never changes. She's not just saying that Aphrodite and Venus are similar, it might also be a GeniusBonus nod to how when the gods of ancient Mesopotamia were adapted and immigrated, the love goddess changed very little compared to the others (other than {{Chickification}}). Inanna of Sumeria became Ishtar of Babylon, who became Astarte of Greece, who eventually became Aphrodite, who became Venus of Rome.

** You're assuming Nemesis got the consent of Mr. Nakamura. If she did not, he would've been very angry at his worst enemy- perfect for fostering revenge.

** There's also the fact that Percy and Jason identify with both CHB and CJ, as Hera intended. So you could say it's 2 (Annabeth and Leo) who are solidly Greek, 2 (Frank and Hazel) who are solidly Roman, and 3 (Percy and Jason, plus Piper as the mediator) in the middle.

** Or a different case of fridge brilliance since hardwiring isn't likely to be as much of a problem to a shapeshifter that can rearrange their wiring. Besides it being magic how else would he adjust to BizarreAnimalSenses?

* The Roman Demigods and Legacies being on the side of the Confederacy in the Civil War makes some sense if one considers the latin slogan "sic sempee tyranis" John Wilkes Booth said. Not sure about Greek and Roman history with slaves but I vaguely recall a much stronger slave culture in Roman society.

** That's a [[UnfortunateImplications cynical]] way to look at it especially since it doesn't track considering his siblings are straight, the god himself is clearly virile and for gods HomosexualReproduction is a possibility between each other and their mortal paramours. His love interest Will turns out to be the result of such a union.

* [[spoiler: In House of Hades, Nico's attitude towards his crush on Percy, avoiding everyone because he believes he won't be accepted and going so far as to say he hates Percy, is absolutely heartwrenching in the face of his past. Considering that before his mother moved him and Bianca to America he spent his formative childhood years growing up in fascist catholic Italy during the holocaust, with gay people being interned just as much as jews and the global attitude towards non-heterosexuality being absolutely poisonous, it's no wonder he's so scared to admit it. Jason's right; Nico admitting it is the bravest act that any character in the series has ever performed.]]

to:

** In Portugal, while eating farturas, Nico somewhat dourly notes that if Percy were there he would probably make a fart joke and muses that Percy can often be so "juvenile". [[spoiler: Nico later gets together with Will Solace, who is noticeably more mature. Not least because he is basically Camp Half-Blood's resident physician.]]

* Nico [[spoiler: being gay]] is perfectly logic when you think about it: he's the son of a ''Death god''. Death is supposed to be sterile, and [[spoiler: a gay relationship]] has no chance to naturally produce offspring.

** It should be noted that gods bestow different gifts on their children, so why not physical attributes as well if they wish? Various Apollo campers have a range of talents, just like gods may adopt a range of looks.
