*While most demigods on the show have powers of their own, [[Pax]] appears to possess none despite being the son of [[Fortuna]]. Fortuna even implies that Pax can be easily killed since he has a human father.

*While [[Oliver]] and [[Pax]] are known to have a human as one of the parents, the other demigods in the show may have been created through their god parent mating with different species, possibly monsters. [[Fenrir]], [[Narfi]] and [[Sleipnir]] are referred to as "god-begotten monsters" as well as demigods, suggesting that they were hybrids between pagan deities and some unidentified form of monster.

*The earliest recorded use of the term '''"Demigods"''' occurs in texts attributed to the archaic Greek poets [[:Wikipedia:Homer|Homer]] and [[:Wikipedia:Hesiod|Hesiod]]. Both wrote that demigods who demonstrated ''"strength, power, good family, and good behavior"'' were termed '''"[[:Wikipedia:Hero#Antiquity|Heroes]]"''', and after death they could be called by ''Hemitheoi'', a process that has been referred to as ''"heroization"''. [[:Wikipedia:Pindar|Pindar]] also used the term ''"demigods"'' frequently as a synonym for divine ''"heroes"''.

**In ''[[The Gamblers]]'', [[Fortuna]] used the term ''"heroes"'' in relation to [[Hercules]] and [[Cú Chulainn]], the legendary demigods. In this case, she appears to also mean heroes in general as Fortuna calls [[Gilgamesh]], Sam and Dean true heroes as well even though them being humans.
