* TheWindyCity: Although Riordan doesn't seem to realize that Chicago is called the "Windy City" because of blustering politicians, not the weather. It ''is'' windy, though. Especially in the winter, when it's also freezing cold. Also, perceptions are important in this series, so if people think that Chicago is literally windy, that's where the Wind will go.

* BettyAndVeronica: This is the case about the triangle between Piper, Reyna, and Jason; however, it is unclear as to who is considered who, since both girls could be justified as either the Betty or the Veronica. Piper could be the Betty, since she is nicer, more outgoing, and less confident than the stoic Reyna (she believes that Reyna is more beautiful that her) and she just wants Jason to be happy no matter who he is with; she could also be the Veronica, since she is considered more beautiful than Reyna by Jason and she unintentionally interferes in what might have became a romance between the amnesiac Jason and Reyna. In the same way, Reyna could be the Betty, since she and Jason have known each other longer because she and Jason were best friends when he was at Camp Jupiter and she held romantic feelings for him (which were unrequited by Jason, he admits so himself), or she could be the Veronica, since she is meaner, more confident, and more aggressive (more "Roman") than the homely Piper and hides any feelings she has for Jason but wants him for herself. Ultimately, Jason chooses Piper, since he loves her for being who she is, and he never had any feelings for Reyna.

And there's the quest whose end goal takes the characters to UsefulNotes/{{Greece}}, with pit stops including: UsefulNotes/{{Italy}}, UsefulNotes/{{Croatia}}, and UsefulNotes/{{Malta}}, and a return journey that includes UsefulNotes/{{Portugal}} and UsefulNotes/{{PuertoRico}}

** Jason, Piper, and Leo each have an evil counterpart to themselves in "The Lost Hero".
*** Jason has Lityerses, a handsome and skilled swordsman who uses a golden sword and has scars on his body like Jason does, but he is arrogant and intentionally flaunts his attractiveness, unlike Jason. In even further opposition to Jason, who cares deeply for his sister Thalia, Lityerses cares very little for his sister, who was turned to gold by their father King Midas. Both Jason and Lityerses like Piper, as well.
*** Piper has Medea, another attractive individual who can charmspeak like Piper, but uses it for her own gain, unlike Piper. She also has connections to the Giants, like Piper does. Unlike Piper, Medea is confident in herself and her abilities. Both women have had a relationship with a hero named Jason, although Piper's was not real but Mist-induced (although it does eventually happen). To make it even worse, Medea manipulated Piper's father Tristan [=McLean's=] assistant Jane into tricking Tristan and allowing him to be kidnapped by Enceladus, who tried using him to blackmail Piper into betraying Jason and Leo.
*** Leo has two. The first is the Cyclops Ma Gasket, who is immune to fire and a skilled mechanic like Leo is, but uses her skills against the Olympians. In opposition to Leo, Ma Gasket is the eldest member of her family who didn't leave her sons Sump and Torque to fend for themselves as Cyclopes should, while Leo is one of the younger members of his family who was thrown out into the streets by his family after his mother's death. The second is Khione, the goddess of snow. While Leo can control fire, Khione controls ice. They both have similar parentage as they are both a child of a god: Leo is the son of Hephaestus, while Khione is the daughter of Boreas.
* ExplodingFishTanks: What did you think when you put Percy in an aquarium exhibit?
* {{Expy}}:
** Piper's father is mentioned to have played [[ThreeHundred The King Of Sparta]] and there is mention of ''The Poster'' which the two considered funny until [[MemeticMutation it hit the internet.]]
** There are several similarities between Annabeth and Reyna, the praetor of Camp Jupiter, in The Mark of Athena. Annabeth immediately notices some of them when she first meets her.
*** Both are considered the female leaders of their respective camps and are highly respected by their fellow campers.
*** Both have or were going to have a romantic relationship with the male leaders of their camps: Annabeth has one with Percy, while Reyna would have had one with Jason if he hadn't been kidnapped by Hera/Juno.
*** Both refuse to believe the worst has happened to their significant other. Annabeth is out searching for Percy throughout The Lost Hero, while Reyna refuses to hold an election for Jason's replacement as praetor despite others' pestering her for it, as she believes Jason is still alive.
*** Both of their love interests (Percy for Annabeth and Jason for Reyna) have a problem of being unable to pick up on Annabeth and Reyna's emotions or feelings.
*** Both of their love interests denied or deny an attraction to them. Percy doesn't realize how much he loves Annabeth until The Last Olympian, while Jason repeatedly tells his girlfriend Piper that he never was in love with Reyna. Despite Jason saying this, after he reclaims his memories in The Lost Hero, his memories of Reyna make him question his feelings toward Piper.
*** Both were involved in a love triangle with their love interest: Annabeth was in a love triangle with Percy and Rachel Elizabeth Dare in The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, while Reyna was in a love triangle with Jason and Piper [=McLean=] in The Mark of Athena, although Jason states that he never felt that way towards Reyna, even though Piper believes otherwise.
*** Both have been on a quest with their love interest; every quest Annabeth ever went on was with Percy (with the exception of her mission to reclaim he Athena Parthenos from Arachne) while Reyna and Jason once visited Charleston, South Carolina on a quest together.
*** Both of their love lives were interfered with by Hera/Juno and Aphrodite/Venus; Hera/Juno kidnapped Percy and Jason and sent them to the opposite camp, while Aphrodite/Venus promised to make Annabeth and Percy's love life interesting (r.e. Tragic) and said something to Reyna in Charleston that caused her to never act the same around Jason again.
*** Both are forced to hold an expression of fearlessness in public to prevent spreading panic throughout their forces. Annabeth even notices this whenever she first meets Reyna in The Mark of Athena, and it is implied Reyna notices this as well.
*** Both are very good at reading others' emotions and deducing motivations and/or feelings, while also hiding their own.
*** Both have a fondness for architecture, as they both were seen admiring New Rome in The Mark of Athena.
*** Both have knowledge of the others' culture, and do not judge them for it.
*** Both are the children of a war goddess; Annabeth is the daughter of Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, and battle strategy, while Reyna is the daughter of Bellona, the Roman goddess of war.
*** Both had a crush on Percy Jackson. Annabeth states that she has a crush on Percy since they first meet when they were twelve, while Reyna attempts to convince Percy to become praetor and become her "friend", which both Percy and Annabeth interpret as Reyna making a move on him.
*** Both visited Circe's Spa and Resort in the Sea of Monsters and met the other while they were there; Annabeth and Percy visited the Spa while looking for the Golden Fleece, and Reyna was one of Circe's assistants at the Spa and Resort. The two met while there; Reyna was one of Circe's attendants who combed Annabeth's hair and gave her a makeover.
*** Both are considered scary by a demigod of the prophecy; Hazel and Frank are both somewhat intimidated by Reyna, while Leo has been scared of Annabeth ever since they met at the Grand Canyon while wearing her "give me Percy Jackson or I'll kill you" look.
*** Both ran away from home; Annabeth ran from her father and stepmother's house in San Francisco after being attacked by spiders for three nights in a row, while Reyna and her sister Hylla ran away from San Juan and became Circe's attendants at her spa.
** Jason and Percy are nearly expies of one another and share a lot of similarities, but have enough differences to be considered very different from each other. They both acknowledge their similarities in The Mark of Athena and The House of Hades, and even act somewhat similar whenever they both say that they feel that they are failing since they aren't used to being among demigods of equal stature.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Schist.
** Much of Percy's interpreting for Arion consists of this.
** In "The Lost Hero", it mentions that Drew dumped, "everything from the bathroom waste bin- some pretty ''nasty'' things- all over the floor".
** Also, Piper's father says that he thinks "That Indian and Greek stuff is all bull "
** In ''The Son of Neptune'', the Amazon, Kinzie, blatantly flirts with Percy, telling him if he ever needs a new girlfriend, she's available. While we're never told exactly how old Kinzie is, it's safe to assume she's an adult (since not many teenagers can get jobs as security guards), whereas Percy is only ''sixteen.''
*** Plus, you have to wonder what Kinzie was thinking when she says Percy would ''look great in an iron collar and an orange jumpsuit.''
** In the same vein as Percy and Kinzie, ''The House of Hades'' also gives us Leo and Calypso. There was also a part like this back in the first series, though with Percy instead of Leo. Keep in mind that, again, Percy and Leo are only about 15 when they meet her, whereas Calypso is ''over 3000 years old''.
** From ''The Mark of Athena'' we have one scene where Percy and Annabeth fall asleep together on the ship. With some of the dialogue, one has to wonder if the original scene was a SexyDiscretionShot so that [[CensorDecoy Riordan could get it past the radar]].[[note]]To make things even more scandalous, Leo is just grinning and shaking his head in a way that screams DidYouJustHaveSex, and Hazel is scandalized, because she was from the 1940s.[[/note]]
---> '''Annabeth''': We just fell asleep together! We didn't do anything.
---> '''Percy''': We kissed a few times...
---> '''Annabeth''': Not helping!
*** Frank ''averted his eyes'' when he found them. It doesn't get much more blatant than that. Afterwards Budford the Table frequently starts shouting "Put some clothes on!"
** Percy referring to Ephialtes as "The Big F."
** There is a scene in ''The Son of Neptune'' where Hazel takes Percy to the back of R.O.F.L. to help him get better and to call Camp Jupiter, while Frank goes outside to fight some monsters. Later, we find out that Percy and Hazel used an Iris Message to call Reyna...who at the time was taking a bath...did I mention that Iris Messages are basically video chat?
*** Frank also says he would have paid to see that (meaning he would have liked to see Reyna's shocked look, not her in the bath...or would he?)
** One of the [[AcronymAndAbbreviationOverload acronyms]] on Asclepius's plaque is BAMF.
** When Annabeth finds out she can communicate with Leo via emergency Morse code, she exclaims that she's going to "flash him." She immediately realizes her mistake.
** Small Bob attacks [[spoiler:Tartarus]] by crawling up [[GroinAttack underneath the skirt of his armor]].
** In ''The Blood of Olympus'', Leo dismisses Piper by telling her to 'talk to the pants,' and she's a bit disgusted. When that doesn't work, he gets her to leave by asking her to scratch an "itch right below my-" and she mercifully cuts him off by giving in.
