* BigBrotherBully: Triton is quite cold to Percy when they meet in ''The Last Olympian'', acting like Percy is lazy, emphasizing that ''he'' (Triton) is Posideon's heir, and telling Poseidon that he, Triton, will not fail in his duties.

* KilledOffForReal: Everyone that dies in the series. Luke not dying even though Percy thought he did in ''Titan's Curse'' doesn't really count because Annabeth told him about thirty seconds later that Luke wasn't dead. The only aversion to this is Tyson. Everyone else thinks that Percy dies, too, but since the story is from his perspective so we know otherwise, it doesn't count.

* BlessedWithSuck / CursedWithAwesome: One of the common themes in Greek mythology is that Blessings and Curses are essentially the same. Having a perfect understanding of ancient Greek, and whether you are willing to tolerate having ADHD as a side effect of your supernatural combat instincts. And then there's all the monsters you attract, especially if you carry a cell phone. Also the more powerful you are as a demigod the more monsters you attract (and the added bonus of probably ending up having a prophecy about you).

* IdiotHero: Percy is… not exactly the sharpest blade on the weapons rack.
** '''FALSE''': Most of the time when Percy does something ''stupid'' or ''impulsive'' it’s actually '''neither''' of those things, it’s just that he ''doesn’t take the time to explain things to everyone else''. He has multilayered plans for how he’s going to get out of a situation, but other characters (and the fandom, [[spoiler: Again, mostly by Annabeth's doing]] ) seem to attribute this to luck. Possibly the best example is Procrustes, who, at the age of twelve, Percy successfully swindled into laying down on his own torture device. Percy is the first person to realize that Kronos is waking (aside from Kronos’ forces, of course). He predicts that he’s going to gain a solid form again. He and Annabeth simultaneously reach this conclusion around the same time without discussing it with each other, but Annabeth doesn’t anticipate the gravity of the war the way Percy does (and the gods won’t listen to him until literally the end of Titan’s Curse).
