** In the first book, Percy's stepfather, "Smelly" Gabe, treats both Percy and his mom like dirt. Thankfully, [[spoiler: Sally Jackson uses the Medusa head from Percy on Gabe, sells the statue, and gains enough money from it to go into writing]].

* EmbarrassingLastName: Gabe ''Ugliano''? Keeping a rebellious streak aside, there's absolutely no way Percy's mom would have sacrificed her maiden name for that surname. Good thing he gets what's coming to him at the end.

* 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.
