* AngstWhatAngst
to:
* AngstWhatAngstAngstWhatAngst: The preteen to teenage main characters aren't nearly as psychologically affected by always having to fight monsters that are trying to kill them so often as they probably would be in real life. At the very least, there's no sign of PTSD. However, given that they have to do this for years on end, it could be safe to assume they just get used to it.

* DieForOurShip: Rachel is frequently treated to this by Percy/Annabeth fans.

* DieForOurShip: Rachel is frequently treated to this by Percy/Annabeth fans. It considerably lessened after the last book, however.

* FanPreferredCouple: While Percabeth is still dominant, there are still rather decently sized fandoms for Percy/Luke, Percy/Nico, Percy/Artemis, Apollo/Hermes, Poseidon/Athena and Percy/Thalia. * FoeYay: Luke and pretty much everyone. Particularly Percy, Thalia, Annabeth, and (if you squint) Grover.

[[spoiler: Congrats Percy, you and Annabeth may be ''relatively'' safe together in [[YouAreWorthHell Tartarus]], but Gaea now has the materials to set her plot into motion. You have doomed the world by choosing true love over it.]]

Bro Yay and Ho Yay are the same trope.
* [[HoYay Bro Yay]]: Travis and Connor Stoll (from the Hermes cabin). Percy and Tyson, too, but the Stolls are [[HeterosexualLifePartners almost never without each other]].

* TheyJustDidntCare: Similar deal (unfortunately for fans of the book) to ''Film/TheSeeker'', considering how the director admitted to not even reading the first book. So much expectations were put into the movie...only for the fandom to be gravely disappointed. The only similarity between the film and the book is the main plot line (just barely).

Ensemble Darkhorse is for minor characters.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "To Feel Alive" performed by IAMEVE, which serves as Thalia's ImageSong. ** The use of FallOutBoy's "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up)" in the opening scene of Sea Of Monsters made the already awesome scene of Clarisse kicking Percy's butt even better. *** Christophe Beck's score, especially the music when Percy's group arrives in Hollywood ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcBZY1JhZ8U reprised in the finale]]). ** Music/LadyGaga's ''Poker Face'' was damn close to perfect in the Lotus Casino scene. * EnsembleDarkhorse: People who hate this movie generally consider Grover to be the highlight of the film.

** There are a number of people who can immediately guess that Bianca and Nico di Angelo are OlderThanTheyLook in ''The Titan's Curse'', when, to evade their pursuers in Washington, D.C., they duck into the Metro. To Bianca, the Metro is new to her, and she even mentions that the last time she and Nico came through D.C. (which was no less than a year prior to the events of the story), the Washington Metro did not exist. Just for the record: the story is set in 2007. The di Angelos are in their early teens. The first segment of the Washington Metro system opened in 1976, well before either Nico or Bianca would have been born. ItMakesSenseInContext though, once Percy deduces that they spent time in the Lotus Hotel & Casino. ''The Last Olympian'' reveals that they were actually born sometime in the mid-1930s, and put in the Lotus Hotel sometime around 1941.

First example wasn't set up as for a twist that never came.
* TheUntwist: Percy's origins. Anyone who knows anything about Greek myth could see the title of the series, the cover of the first book, and then put two and two together. It's really not that hard. ** The fulfilling of the prophecy in ''The Titan's Curse'' It says "One will be ''lost''" and everybody assumes it means someone will die. But it never outright states dying, so with the usual ProphecyTwist you could expect Bianca to be lost and later found. It turns out she gets KilledOffForReal.

** Similar to the above, the Hunters of Artemis get a lot of attention in fanfic, especially notable considering that very few members are named. Artemis's lieutenant, Zoe Nightshade, is especially popular.

** It might or might not be intentional, but the mention of a statue of Susan B. Anthony strangling Frederick Douglass in "The Last Olympian" might be a roundabout reference to how the two civil rights leaders, formerly steadfast allies, became divided over the issue of the Fourteenth Amendment allowing black males to vote, but not women of any race (and to add insult to injury, it was the first Amendment that explicitly mentioned male and only male citizens).

It's significantly harsher after [[spoiler:''Series/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' showed a glimpse of Nico's POV in that scene--basically, he saw Percy as a mythical hero come to life, which only made his crush and Percy's failure to save Bianca that much harder for him to accept.]]
