The Junkyard of the Gods is a place where the Greek gods, mainly Hephaestus, throw away broken or defective devices.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

The Titan's Curse

Percy Jackson has a talk with Aphrodite, who warns him to be careful in her husband's junkyard. Later, Percy, Thalia Grace, Bianca di Angelo, Zoë Nightshade, and Grover Underwood travel through the junkyard. They discover it to be filled with seemingly useful things; however, Zoë reminds the rest of the group that the only reason why something would be thrown to the junkyard is because of its malfunction. Later, as they are leaving, a prototype of Talos rises up from the junk and attacks the group, and Percy discovers that Bianca had secretly kept something - a Mythomagic statue of Hades, the only statue her brother Nico di Angelo did not yet have in his collection. Knowing the monster's rise was her fault, Bianca gives the statue to Percy and climbs into Talos' foot, where she is able to control him. She forces him into a row of telephone wires, which electrocutes him and shuts him down. However, she also ends up dying in the process, sacrificing herself to save her friends.


Hephaestus, the main user of the junkyard.
