About This Quiz

While there were only 12 main Olympians in the Greek pantheon, there was a lot more going on in the whole of Greek mythology. With the various demigods and assorted other not-quite-mortal characters, there are actually over 3,000 of them to choose from; 3,000 gods and goddesses and other beings who have immense, bizarre and enviable powers. Some use them wisely, some barely at all. But if there was one thing the Greeks did well with their mythology, it was to show you how power could be very misused. Many of those gods were basically horrible. Horrible to each other, and horrible to humanity. The lessons those stories taught were often cautionary ones, showing you what not to do. Greek gods, on the whole, are a ragtag group of shady individuals.

The stories from mythology have been told and retold for ages now. We even have a decent library of films based on them. No doubt you're familiar with Zeus and Hercules and Medusa. Some of these characters probably resonate with you, while others make you wonder what the heck was wrong with the people of Greece back in the day. Think we can guess which one of the many gods you like the least? Take the quiz and see!
