* ''Percy Jackson's Greek Gods'' is a return to Percy's roots as a FirstPersonSmartass for the most part, but he also pauses frequently to directly address the reader about the ValuesDissonance present in the Greek myths. When Zeus forces himself on Kallisto by posing as her mistress, Artemis, Percy says that Kallisto kept quiet about it out of fear that it was her fault-- then informs the reader that it's ''never'' your fault if someone does that to you, and you should tell someone. He also makes a point out of Dionysus being the patron god of gender confusion, because it's something he has experience with, and goes on a brief AuthorTract about how the story of Pandora is used by men to justify blaming women for everything that's gone wrong in the world, '''but''' Pandora was explicitly '''set up by the gods''' to fail, literally '''designed''' by them to be unable to resist opening the box, and yet they're apparently blameless. As a primer to one of the great mythological traditions that is possibly going to be a child's first introduction to the Greek myths, it's really, really nice to see Percy (in reality, Riordan) going out of his way to encourage the reader and try to prevent them from internalizing some of the Greeks' less enlightened ideas.

* Snark and opinions aside, Percy mostly sticks to the ancient myths he's recounting in ''Percy Jackson's Greek Gods''. The only time he really goes on about a god's modern-day circumstances is when he talks about Amphritite, a Nereid and wife of Poseidon-- and Percy's stepmother. While Amphritite was rather cold when we glimpsed her in ''The Last Olympian'', Percy takes a moment to give her kudos for not taking out her issues with her husband on his innocent children, and says she doesn't give him a hard time for leaving his clothes on the floor and she even bakes him cookies-- which is "all you can ask of an immortal stepmother."

* "And it was the best underwater kiss of all time." Certainly heartwarming for the Percy/Annabeth fans, but think about this: Percy has finally earned his reward after four years of absolute torture.

* Percy's words to Hestia when he [[spoiler:gives her Pandora's Box]]:
-->'''Percy''': Hestia, I give you this offering.
-->'''Hestia''', ''tilting her head'': I am the least of the gods. Why would you trust me with this?
-->'''Percy''': You're [[TitleDrop the last Olympian]]. And the most important.
-->'''Hestia''': And why is that, Percy Jackson?
-->'''Percy''': Because Hope survives best at the hearth. Guard it for me, and [[DespairEventHorizon I won't be tempted to give up again]].
-->''[Hestia] smiled. She took'' ''[[spoiler:the jar]]'' ''in her hands and it began to glow. The hearth fire burned a little brighter.''
-->'''Hestia''': Well done, Percy Jackson. May the gods bless you.

** Zoe's entire relationship with Artemis is this, whether you read it as [[HeterosexualLifeParters simple loyalty]] or [[LesYay something more]]. She was willing to ''take the entire weight of the sky'' to rescue her goddess... and Artemis knew it, and wouldn't let her. She didn't even get a chance to open her mouth before Artemis cut her off.

** Percy's relationship with his new stepfather Paul and Sally's relationship with him as well could also be seen as this; especially after year's of putting up with Smelly Gabe

*** In a Fridge moment, the [[Bookends]] moment near the end. Percy holds his shield over Thalia in an attempt to protect her from the Manticore; at Mount Orthrys, she pays him back by using Aegis to shield him from the force of the exploding car.
