Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Fighting monsters, Titans, giants, and Gaia
Percy Jackson is a teenage demigod and the son of Poseidon, God of the Seas. Always a troublemaker, Percy's 6th grade class took a field trip to a Greek museum. There, Percy was attacked by the Fury Alecto. Percy's best friend Grover attempted to lead himself and his mother to Camp Half-Blood, but his mother was killed by a minotaur. In the aftermath of the attack, Percy discovers he is a demigod and that the gods are living among them in the modern world. Percy, because of an ancient vow broken by his father for fathering a child after the Second World War, is blamed for the disappearance of Zeus' lightning bolt. After retrieving the lightning bolt, Percy discovers that the weakened Titan Kronos intends to return to power. Percy soon learns of a prophecy stating that the world lay in his hands at the age 16.
After this, Percy begins to find a home in Camp Half-Blood, defending and fighting for it. When the sacred tree that protects their camp is poisoned, Percy finds the Golden Fleece and heals her, also bringing back the girl trapped inside Thalia Grace, a daughter of Zeus. He also manages to save Artemis from the Titan general, Atlas, by trekking across the country alongside two of her hunters. Finally, Percy manages to destroy the Labyrynth, a gigantic maze that his mortal enemy, Luke Castellan, intended to use as a means to invade Camp Half-Blood. After the Labyrynth is destroyed, Percy reaches the year where he is supposed to choose between destroying or saving the world. Bathing in the River Styx, Percy leads an army of a mere 40 demigods to attempt and protect Mount Olympus hidden atop the Empire State building from Kronos' armies. Despite numerous allies such as the Centaurs and the Hunters of Artemis, the forces are overwhelmed within days and Kronos, possessing Luke, takes Mount Olympus. However, before he can reach full power, Luke kills himself while the gods defeat Kronos' ally Titan Typhon. Percy is declared a hero, but declines the title of being a god in exchange for the gods to pay attention to their children, as a majority of Kronos' army were rejected demigods.
The next year, Percy is captured by Hera/Juno as an exchange between Camp Half-Blood and their secret rival, the Roman Camp Jupiter. Percy, after defeating the two Gigante born to kill Poseidon and Hades, attempts to unite the two camps alongside six other demigods. However, the Roman campers react with hostility and declare war against Camp Half-Blood. Now, Percy and six other demigods, both Greek and Roman, must attempt to fight the Gigante and Gaia in Olympia alone and find a way to reunite the two warring camps to fight their common foe.
Battle vs. Harry Potter (by The Deadliest Warrior)Edit
Percy Jackson is training near a small creek in Camp Half-Blood. Suddenly, an object whizzes by his head, and he ducks. Percy takes out his small bow and fires an arrow at the object but it is going so fast it misses. The thing slows down when it realizes it is being shot at, and it is Harry Potter on his Firebolt. Harry retaliates by casting Expelliarmus on Percy, sending the bow flying from his hands. Harry follows up with Petrificus Totalus and Percy falls next to the creek, paralyzed.
Percy concentrates as hard as possible on bringing the water closer to him and when it touches him, he can move around again. Percy calls his pegasus Blackjack, who arrives in the nick of time, and Percy uncaps Riptide, while Harry keeps up his barrage of spells.
As the two battle in the air, Percy slashes the tail off of Harry's Firebolt and it goes plummeting to the ground. Percy is about to congratulate Blackjack on their victory when Blackjack is hit with a Stupefy spell and falls too. The only reason why Percy survives the fall is that he lands in the stream. Percy takes out his raining staff and jabs Harry in the stomach, but Harry has the Sword of Gryffindor in hand and breaks the staff in two. Percy grabs Riptide once again and the two begin swordfighting until Harry slashes Percy across his arm, drawing the first blood of the battle. Percy scrambles back and grabs one of the two halves of the staff and soaks them in the water, so it becomes an enormous swirling vortex of water sorrounding the staff. Percy hurls it at Harry, who is submerged in water. Once the damage is done, Harry lies quite still, alive but knocked out, on a tree stump.
Percy grabs Harry over his shoulders and drags him back to camp so he can be interrogated later.
The experts believed that Percy's water abilities (both defensive and offensive) were what won him the match over Harry.
Rematch vs. Harry Potter (by Cfp3157)Edit
"You'll do fine, my boy. You're fighting on your Father's domain, after all." Chiron comforted his nervous pupil as Percy and Annabeth sparred. "Yeah Seaweed Brain, you'll do great." Annabeth comforted him as she parried Riptide and smacked him with the hilt of her dagger. Percy fell back with a thud onto the grass of his training tent, a welt growing on his forehead. "Here, Percy. Trust me, you'll need some energy for this one." Groover offered him a glass of water, and Percy felt his strength rejuvinate almost instantly. "Yeah, thanks. As for you, there's nothing more encouraging than a hard thud against your forehead by your girlfriend." Annabeth flashed her boyfriend a smile, and Percy was instantly feeling better. As the trio of friends walked out to the stadium where demigods and wizards alike mingled, Percy knew that this Potter kid was going to get a run for his money.
Hogwarts School or Witchcraft and Wizardry, despite its loss of the brilliant architecture it once had, was never filled with such genuine joy and never vibrated as much fun. Harry watched demigod and wizard alike enjoy the festivities. “Harry! You ready for this mate?” Ron asked him, running his hands through his red hair. “Of course he is, Ron. Don’t ask such dumb questions; Harry’s going to do great!” Hermione and Ginny entered the training tent. Harry wrapped his arm around Ginny, and he smiled. “I’m nervous, that’s for sure. But that could be a good thing, I’m feeling on edge. Alert.” Hermione smiled, and gave her friend thumbs up. The four friends left the training tent, and entered the arena before them.
Demigods and wizards sat down, laughing, joking, and enjoying each other. Hermione and Annabeth both sat down besides each other, as did Grover and Ron. As soon as they sat down, Chiron galloped into the arena and stood beside Headmistress McGonagall. He blew a conch horn, and the entire arena grew quiet, with the exception of the small waves of the lake. “Welcome! Welcome to the first of hopefully very many cross-training events between Hogwarts and Camp Half-Blood!” His announcement was met with merry cheers from everyone in the stands. McGonagall waited for it to be quiet again, and then spoke in her Scottish accent. “However, before we begin the festivities, we must take a moment. A quiet moment, to remember those that have fallen in our fight against evil.” She bowed her head, and all followed suit. Five demigods in ceremonial armor drew their swords, and held them to the sky. Five wizards, in suits and ties, also raised their wands. Despite the trials and tribulations they'd all gone through, everyone there knew that they could push past the trouble and danger to a light at the end of the tunnel.
Off to the side, Harry and Percy stood beside each other. Both bowed their heads, remembering the friends and allies they’d lost. As Chiron announced festivities to be taken place and the cheering of the young pupils grew louder, Percy looked at his opponent. And then, he gave Harry his hand. “Good luck, buddy.” Harry smiled, and shook his outstretched hand. “Indeed, Percy. Do your best and don’t take it easy on me.” Percy smiled, and winked. “I never intended too.” With that, he put his fingers to his lips and blew a cabbie whistle. “Accio Firebolt!" Blackjack arrived first, spreading his wings and neighing as Percy mounted him. Harry’s Firebolt was soon to follow, and he got on his broomstick. Together, they soared into the sky to the approval of the spectators.
Percy soared over the spectators of the arena, entered with loud cheers from the demigod campers and playful boos from the crowd of witches and wizards. Harry jetted past the demigod hero, shoving a little to the approval of the crowd. "Catch me if you can, Percy!" Come on boss, let's get 'im! Percy calmed his pegasus down, a devilish smile spreading across his face. "Don't worry Blackjack, we'll take him down." Chiron watched both of the teenagers circle each other slowly, hovering in the air. They were constantly fidgeting, waiting for him to blow his horn. Chiron let out a sigh. "Young people these days." Chiron thought to himself, and blew the conch horn, signaling the battle to begin.
Percy made the first move, drawing Riptide in a flash of bronze. Harry let out his wand, shouting a disarming spell as he sped forward. "Expillarmus!" Blackjack dove down in a spiral, dodging the projectile with ease. He dashed forward, and Percy slashed with Riptide at the tail end of the Firebolt broom. "Oh no you don't!" Harry yelled, and threw his shoulder into Percy. Percy let out a grunt, and the two were sent hovering away from each other.
"Stupefy! Immobulus! Confundo!" Harry let out a series of spells, but only the last one hit Blackjack. The pegasus started flying in random directions, much to the discontent of Percy. "Come on Blackjack! Get focused!" He gave no response, and Percy could only scream as his mount threw him off his back and into the Hogwarts lake below.
Percy plunged into the deep depths below, but saw with perfect clarity as Harry landed on the ground to finish the fight. He heard the dull thud of campers and students cheering, and swam up with near-superhuman speed. In the distance, Annabeth chuckled as her boyfriend fountained out of the water in a dramatic spring of water. "He's always had a flare for dramatics." She told her new friend, and Hermoine only chuckled as Harry summoned his cloak. "Accio Invisbility Cloak!" The sky colored cloak soared through the sky, and Harry threw his cloak over his body, disappearing into thin air. Hermoine looked at her friend. When Percy came up to the lake's surface, she couldn't tell who was more shocked. Both Percy and Annabeth had their mouths right open, silently gasping at Harry's seemingly instant disapearance.
Harry grinned as his friend glazed around the battlefield, looking for him. Harry slowly drew up his wand, and whispered a spell. "Flipendo." The stream of blue light streaked across the sky, knocking Percy and his sword across the lake. He sunk underwater, much the amusement of the crowd.
Percy scanned the grounds, searching for Harry. He saw a jet of red light soar towards him, and he launched a stream of water in it's direction before dodging the projectile. Harry's cloak was flown off of him as the high pressured water smacked him in the chest. Percy grinned and, summoning a large wave, he quickly sailed across the water.
Harry saw Percy flying at him at an acclerated pace, and blasted a series of spells and charms at him. The magical blasts seemed to be caught up in the wave, coloring the water. The crowd "Oooo!" and "Aaaaahh!" at the colorful phenomenum as the battle between the two waged on.
Percy seemed to stand on the lake's edge, summoning a large wave. He smirked at Harry, and sent the tidal wave at him. As the wave began to receed, Percy created a highly pressured spring to launch into the air. He drew Riptide, intending to plant the blade beside his opponent's head for a good scare.
Harry wasn't one to be defeated so easily, and blast one last spell at him. "Lumos!" The blast of bright light blinded Percy, and stumbled through the air. He landed with a hard thud, and could only muster a look of surprise as Harry Potter stood victorious. The Boy Wizard cast one final spell. "Stupefy!" Percy jolted one time, and lay frozen on the ground. Harry grabbed Riptide, and raised the sword into the air to the cheers of his fellow wizard students.
Later that night Percy, Harry, and all their friends were later enjoying a campfire. The children of Apollo played wonderful music, and the young pupils had a great time. Surpervising them, Chiron and Professor McGonagell grinned. "This was a great idea, Professor." Chiron commented. "Indeed it was, Chiron. Dumbledore, rest in peace, would've wanted this." McGonagell then summoned a strange metallic sphere, glowing dimly in the night sky. "This device is a dangerous one, and it shall be much easier to protect it with both of our forces." Chiron nodded, and ruubbed his brown beard.
The old professor raised her eyebrow, questioningly gazing at the strange device. "Where did you get that, Chiron?" she asked. Chiron held the odd device in hand, and explained. "A few of my campers saw it in a cave near our camp. Not even our best engineers have been able to decipher it. It's obviously of magical nature, and radiates power." McGonagell nodded, and took the item. "We have friends, in Africa, who can find a secure place for it." Chiron nodded with thanks, and stroked his brown beard.
"My oracle predicted a Great Prophecy, and we will need to be prepared for it. This strange device can surely provide useful. Now that I've seen your best McGonagell, I feel confident we have good people by our sides to protect the Apple."
Both warriors brought in a diverse and powerful arsenal of magical abilities, but Harry Potter emerged the victor for a few reasons. For one, his spells, while not as devastating, were far easier to control and reliable. He was also bringing in a set of more versatile spells, compared to Percy's primarily offensive aquatic abilities. However, his biggest asset was Percy's disadvantage. Riptide has always been Percy's primary weapon, and it not being able to effect Harry forced him to rely on his demigod powers. Those powers couldn't save him in the end, however.
The Deadliest Warrior's blog lacked several forms of information that would allow informative votes from voters, such as inaccurate arsenals and limited abilities.
Percy Jackson is training at Camp Half-Blood while the other Demigods are away. His pegasus Blackjack is in the nearby stable eating when all of a sudden Percy feels that somethins is wrong. He looks up into the sky to see a giant blue thing and thinks that it is a bird. But a better look and he soon sees what he thinks is a dragon. In the skies above Eragon and his Dragon Saphira are soaring through the air
"Saphira what happened" Eragon asks
"The last thing I remember we were scouting the grounds near my village for signs of any Urgals and then a blue thing appeared in front of us and now we're here."
"I don't know Eragon but something feels very different about this place" Saphira replies.
On the ground Percy calls to Blackjack
"Blackjack looks like we got trouble must be another one of Kronos's minions" Percy says
"I'm on my way Percy!" Blackjack replies
Percy mounts Blackjack and they take off to face the unknown enemy. Both Eragon and Saphira sense something and as Eragon looks down he is almost hit by something. Saphira turns around and they see Percy Jackson on Blackjack wielding Riptide and a Shield.
"Who are you?" Eragon asks
"The name's Percy Jackson perhaps you've heard of me?" Percy replies
"No I have not should I" Eragon replies
"It doesn't matter you won't remember once I've dealt with you"Percy says
"Blackjack lets get him" Percy says telepathically
Blackjack flies towards Eragon and Saphira and so Eragon takes out Hunting Bow and fires a arrow missing Blackjack and Percy.
"Saphira lets deal with these two" Eragon says telepathically
Both riders and their mounts fly towards each other at top speed and so Eragon prepares Brisingr and Percy with Riptide. Both riders collide swords but deflect each other as they fly past each other. The two try again but with the same results, Percy prepares his Javelin and tells Blackjack to try again this time when they fly towards each other Percy waits for the right moment and then tosses his javelin and Eragon barely dodging it and his armor protects him from getting any injuries.
"Saphira take care of that flying horse" Eragon says
"Gladly" Saphira replies
Saphira flies towards Blackjack and Percy tells Blackjack to dodge but as he does Saphira spews fire and is able to burn Blackjack's right wing. Blackjack yells in pain.
"Blackjack are you alright?" Percy asks
"No my wing is burnt I can't feel it" Blackjack replies
"Quickly head to the ground near the River I will heal you!" Percy says
Blackjack flies with trouble to the river but is able to make it without Saphira attacking them. Blackjack lands and Percy quickly runs towards the water. He hears a roar and sees Saphira flying towards his location. He uses his magic and as Saphira gets near he sends a blast of water her way. Saphira collides with the water and is sent flying through the cam grounds crashing through some buildings and Eragon is sent flying losing his weapons while getting tossed around. He gets back up and sees Saphira badly hurt but with no serious injuries.
"Saphira are you alright?" Eragon asks
"I'm alright Eragon" Saphira replies
"Saphira stay here and rest until you feel able to help me I will deal with this boy!" Eragon says
"Be careful Eragon this is no ordinary boy he must of used Magic to control the water" Saphira pleads
"I will be you know I will" Eragon replies
Eragon finds his weapons but is only able to find 3 arrows for his bow and he heads out to confront Percy. Percy has prepared his weapons in case and has even found an extra Javelin. He heals Blackjack and just then sees Eragon in the forest he grabs his Javelin and tosses it once again missing hitting right behind Eragon who responds by taking out his Bow and takes aim with his first arrow. He fires but just then Percy takes out Luke's Shield and blocks the shot. He pulls out Riptide and charges at Eragon who takes out another Arrow and fires once again blocked by Luke's shield. Eragon prepares and as he takes aim he yells out
Percy sees as Eragon's arrow emits a blue flame and fires it. He prepares his shield and as the Arrow strikes him the force of the blast blows Percy back. Percy becomes dazed but is able to get up and sees Luke's Shield trashed from the blast and discards the item. He grabs Riptide and gets up. Amazed that the boy survived a blast like that and out of arrows Eragon takes out Brisingr and charges at Percy. Percy uses his water magic and shoots some bursts of water at Eragon but Eragon dodges it and counters with Kvistr and sends vines at Percy who chops them with Riptide.
"So you can use magic to huh?" Percy asks
"What do you think!" Eragon replies
Both collide with their swords and continue to exchange blows. Percy slashes at Eragon's lower leg and penetrates the armor and is able to slash Eragon but when Eragon notices it he doesn't feel pain. Thinking he must be imagining it he continues to fight and is able to cut across Percy's stomach and cuts Percy but he continues to fight. As the two continue to fight Percy is able to knock away Eragon's sword and tries a chop at his head but Eragon rolls out of the way and takes out his Staff and blocks Riptide as Percy takes a strike at him. He knocks Percy away and then hits him in the stomach hurting him a lot more because of the cut. Percy is knocked back to the water and stretches out his hands to the water. In amazement Eragon sees as water goes up Percy's arm into his body and heal the wound. Percy gets back up and as Eragon prepares to strike he is hit in the head by a hoof from Blackjack who has come to help Percy and in the process breaks Eragon's staff. Eragon turns around to see Percy ready to stab him with Blackjack hovering over him.
"Tell Kronos when you see him he will have to do better then a demigod and his dragon to take me down!" Percy says
Eragon stares in confusion and then Percy drives Riptide into Eragon. Eragon with his eyes close prepares to feel pain but then notices nothing. He opens his eyes to see Riptide in his chest but yet he doesn't feel death or anything. Percy is surprised and pulls out Riptide to see no blood on it. Eragon looks to the spot and sees his armor cut through but no stab mark or any signs of him being stabbed.
"Wait are you a demigod?" Percy asks
"I have no idea what a demigod is!?" Eragon replies
"Then your a mortal" Percy says
"What's wrong your sword can't hurt whatever a mortal is?" Eragon says
Percy steps back quickly and then says
"While I can't kill you Blackjack can. Blackjack! finish him" Percy says
"With pleasure" Blackjack replies.
Out of nowhere a strong gust of wind blows back Percy to the ground and as he and Eragon look up they see Saphira charge at Blackjack and grab his body in her mouth. She flies towards the other side of the river and drives her teeth into Blackjack while tossing him around and then throws him against a tree. Saphira turns around and roars at Percy.
"BLACKJACK!!!!!" Percy yells as he hears Blackjack yelling in pain.
He uses his magic to create a Water Trident and charges at Eragon who is able to grab Brisingr and protect himself from Percy. He kicks Percy back and seeing how his Trident is made of water uses Adurna and Percy sees as his Trident converts back into water and fall to the ground. Percy tries to use his magic but Eragon says Deloi moi and a earthquake roars and a big crack opens up and the water falls into it. With no weapons Percy grabs Riptide so he could at least defend himself.
"It is time to end this!" Eragon says
He yells Brisingr and his sword lights up in blue flames. He charges at Percy and Percy tries to defend himself but Eragon gains the upper hand and says Garjzla letta. Percy then loses his sight and can't see anything and before he can say anything Eragon drives Brisingr into Percy's stomach and falls down dead. He looks up to see Saphira walk over to Blackjack who is still alive and stares in horror as Saphira begins to devour him. While Saphira is feasting on Blackjack Eragon looks at the body of Percy and yells
Eragon was victorious because of his Better Close, Long Ranges and his better Mount. With Riptide not being able to kill Mortals that was a big problem for Percy. The inaccuracy of his Javlin and his Mount who couldn't do a lot where Saphira could breath fire and Blackjack couldn't is what brought the downfall of the demigod. And brough the victory to the Dragon Rider.
Percy is resting by a lake in a forest near camp half blood. He rolls up the bottom of his jeans and dips his feet in. A cut on his cheek suddenly goes away. Suddenly, he hears a stick break, Percy looks behind him and sees Sora standing with his keyblade. Percy stands just as Sora throws the keyblade and activates strike raid. Percy is thrown back into the lake. A massive splash occurs and Percy sinks to the bottom. The keyblade returns to Sora's hand and he turns accepting his victory when a massive wall of water slams into Sora. Sora falls over and looks behind him to see Percy standing in the dry lakebed holding Riptide. Sora stands and spits out a mouthfull of lake water. Percy runs at Sora with his blade extended. Sora begins spinning his keyblade to activate sonic blade and he too charges. Percy blocks the first several blows with Riptide before riptide is thrown from his hands. Sora advances and stops spinning his keyblade. Percy backs up and, using the moisture from the air, a trident made from pure water apears in his hands. The trident then turns solid and Percy circles Sora.
Sora lunges, but Percy blocks with the shaft of the trident. Sora strikes again but this time is blocked by the prongs of the trident. Percy twists the trident and the keyblade is thrown from Sora's hands. Percy jabs with the trident and lands with the left most prong in Sora's thigh. Percy rips the trident from his enemy's leg. Blood sprays from Sora's thigh, as Sora grabs his leg. Percy raises his trident when suddenly, a bolt of thunder comes straight from Sora's hand and blasts Percy throwing him backwards into a tree. Sora uses the healing spell on his leg and walks up to his unconcious opponent. Picking up his keyblade Sora walks away.
Sora won because his Keyblade was able to score hits while Riptide was unable to damage Sora. Also, Sora's powers were far more versatile than Percy's and were able to counter Percy's.
