** In the last book, Apollo, Octavian, and Rachel are struggling with a lack of prophecy, and Ella quotes a prophecy that mentions the fall of the sun. ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo'' reveals that said fall is Apollo's demotion to mortal, and the lack of prophecy is a much bigger issue, cas all of the ancient oracles are in danger.

* {{Badass}}: Nico flat-out tells the rest of the FiveManBand that Percy is the most powerful demigod that he's ever seen. Keep in mind that by this point he's met two children of the king of the Gods, ''and'' had literally been to hell.
** The rest of the Seven qualify as well as they were designed to be among the most powerful demigods ever. Leo is the first son of Hepheastus in centuries that can control fire and defeat a snow goddess. Piper has the rare gift of charmspeak and is more powerful than usual along with being a capable fighter. Frank is the son of the war god and can slay hundreds of monsters at once. Hazel easily mastered magic with no training along with her gem powers. Jason is tied with Percy being the best sword fighter and has lighting and wind powers. Annabeth, despite not having any powers, succeeded in retrieving the Athena Parthenos thanks to her smarts and bravery alone and after hundreds of years worth of Athena's kids failed.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Octavian. This is the second time Riordan has made the evil guy from camp an older blond dude. Averted by Jason.

* TheBigDamnKiss: Actually happens sometime after the conflict ends, but still. [[spoiler: Jason and Piper have this kind of kiss on the balcony of Cabin 1 (the largest cabin in Camp Half-Blood), alone, and under a sky full of stars. It's more meaningful in Piper's part, because to her, she already experienced it due to the Mist's effects, yet is heartbroken when she is told that that's a fraud. Jason honorably makes it up.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Jason''': Remember your memory about our kiss? Now it's real.]]
** [[spoiler: Also Leo and Calypso, this time doubling with BeachKiss.]]



* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: InUniverse, the moment that the Greek and Roman camps know each other's existence is this, because the last time they knew each other, the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar happened. May also be out universe for the readers who learn the existence of another camp for demigods at the end of ''The Lost Hero''.
** The series' epilogue also qualifies, because [[spoiler: Apollo's loss of foresight might meant the death of prophecies, and thus, [[EndOfAnEra the death of great adventures]]. Though read up [[Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo the next series]] for more clarification.]]



** The Roman aspects were not mentioned at all in the original series. However, ''The Lost Hero'' justifes this in that the Greek and Roman demigods do ''not'' get along at all, hence the need for them to remain hidden from each other. In fact, a clever reader can point out that the only ones explaining the Roman aspects are, of course, Romans, and that the Romans felt this way about the Greeks. (Since Lupa's not one to tell!)

** [[spoiler: The readers are never told that Koios was a part of the Second Titanomachy, yet he appears in ''The House of Hades'' as every bit a war veteran as others are. What's even more bizarre is that he pops up literally just once to meet with Bob before running off somewhere without any closure at all (unlike Hyperion and Krios, not that [[CessationOfExistence what comes to them is good]]). Then again, we see ''everything'' of the previous series from Percy's eyes, and it's likely that Koios was part of the Othrys Front that's mentioned in ''The Lost Hero'' instead. His inexplicable appearance may also meant to further strengthen the BlackAndGrayMorality the gods vs non-gods is like (he mentions revenge after "what they'd done" to [[PapaWolf his daughter, Leto]]).]]


Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: It's not very obvious like the last time, though, because it doesn't involve any of the demigods [[spoiler: (who get HappilyEverAfter). Apollo's control over foresight does not return even after Gaea's defeat, which probably means no more prophecies. Furthermore, Zeus is ''angry'' at Apollo as the latter didn't tell him about the prophecy and promises a punishment for him. Comes ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo''.]]
