Added DiffLines:

* Flanderization: While Percy has always had his funny moments and by no means the smartest psomeerson people feel that he dumbed down in favor of making Jason look better

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Despite all of his development since the Percy Jackson series the first thing most people usually bring up about Nico is that he is gay.
** Piper saying that Percy looks unimpressive. This along either her obsession over Jason made her even more unpopular amongst fans who see her as shallow and only caring about appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* ContestedSequel: Many fans of Percy Jackson are polarized about this series some love it while some only like certain moments. The last book definitely caused quite amount of controversy as explained above. Many fans feel that Riordan took on more than he could handle by adding so many new characters and plot lines and as a result wasn't able to fully develop all of them.

* AntiClimaxBoss: All of the giants, every single time. Despite the claims of being a greater threat than the Titans they lack the divine forms or magical powers of the Titans or Gods save for a few special abilities. Each one tends to be defeated by one or two demigods with only a god needed to finish them off. In the last book, [[spoiler: despite being together and at full power, the seven demigods would have stood as strong chance of winning if not for the giants brand of immortality and the whole fight turns into a CurbStompBattle once the gods show up.]]

** Nico's development has been seen as either progressive and brilliant or shallow and only served to forward the author's political agenda

** Nico's development has been seen as either progressive and brilliant or shallow and only served to forward the author's political agendaagenda. Arguing or or against Nico's development can lead to a big heated debate with the opposing side.
** While the character Bob from House of Hades is well liked his presence in the book is hotly contested. This is because Bob appeared in a Side Story in the Demigod Files meaning fans who haven't bought the book and read the story were lost on who he was and his relationship with Percy, some fans feel that his inclusion was a cheap way to make the reader buy another book while others would have preferred that Percy and Annabeth go through Tartarus alone.

** Nico's coming out is either seen as well developed and loved by a good percentage of the fan base or is seen as pandering and coming out of no and is the result of the author forcing his liberal views on others.

** The way that Nico's [[spoiler:feelings for Percy]] were handled in the final book also had mixed reception. While fans appreciated that his subplot got resolution and [[spoiler:he did get a happy ending, as well as ShipTease with another character]], roughly just as many fans thought he and Percy needed more interaction and the way Nico [[spoiler:chose to move on from Percy]] was a particularly poorly done form of ShipSinking akin to how Percy/Rachel was handled in the [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians previous series]].

** Leo Valdez is seen as funny and awesome by a part of the fan base while others may seem his as loud and annoying. In addition his treatment and teasing of Frank and Nico is either seen as comical and harmless or down right bullying

downright bullying. His treatment towards the latter at least, is called out by Jason, after learning about Nico's [[spoiler:crush on Percy]].

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Piper, to a certain extent. Some love how she [[TookALevelInBadass took several levels in badass]], proved that HeartIsAnAwesomePower, and showed her worth as both an ActionHero and GuileHero despite her lack of combat-useful powers. Others feel that she's still obsessed with looks (she finds Percy to be scrawny and unimpressive and falls for Jason, probably the most physically attractive of the Seven) and is at least a bit of a CreatorsPet.
