After the Golden Fleece is placed on Thalia's Pine Tree, it heals Thalia Grace's spirit within and ejects her, resurrecting the demigod. Percy Jackson realizes that Kronos and Luke Castellan had orchestrated Thalia's resurrection in order to have another chance at controlling the Great Prophecy.
Nico di Angelo plots to bring back his sister by trading the soul of Daedalus for her to Hades. Unbeknownst to Nico, King Minos, who is helping him, is actually plotting to betray Nico and use Daedalus to secure his own resurrection instead. After learning the truth, Nico banishes Minos back to the Underworld and changes his mind about trading Daedalus for Bianca even when given the opportunity by Daedalus himself.
Persephone reveals that as Hades' Sword has the Keys of Hades incorporated into it, the wielder can raise the dead. Later, while passing through the Fields of Punishment, Percy, Nico and Thalia talk with Sisyphus who mentions his own resurrections.
Between the Series
After Gaea opens the Doors of Death and chains down Thanatos, Nico di Angelo searches the Underworld for his sister in the hopes of using the opportunity to resurrect her. However, she has already chosen rebirth. Instead, Nico finds the spirit of his half-sister Hazel Levesque and resurrects her using the Doors of Death instead.
Due to Gaea's use the Doors of Death, Jason Grace, Piper McLean and Leo Valdez face a resurrected Medea, King Midas and Lityerses as well as quickly reforming monsters. After Medea dies when Piper blows up her mall, Aphrodite warns Piper that she will quickly return due to the Doors of Death being open. In addition, Midas is killed for a second time by his own victims after they are brought back from their golden forms, including his resurrected daughter Zoe.
After being murdered during the Roman War Games, Gwendolyn suddenly returns to life after finding an exit from the Underworld due to the Doors of Death being open. Mars subsequently reveals the source of all of these resurrections and issues Frank Zhang, Hazel Levesque and Percy a quest to free Thanatos. During their quest, the trio encounter the resurrected Phineas and Otrera. When Phineas is tricked into drinking the vial of poison Gorgon Blood, he states that it will do enough damage to prevent even him from coming back for awhile. Otrera constantly returns to challenge Hylla Ramírez-Arellano to a duel for leadership of the Amazons, resurrecting each day for another fight in which Hylla will inevitably be worn down and killed.
After Thanatos is set free, he is able to stop monsters from instantly reforming and intends to hunt down the escaped souls for Hades and Pluto but he leaves Hazel alone as she is not on his list. He also doesn't reap the souls of those who died during the Battle of New Rome and came back, suggesting that Pluto chose to ignore their resurrections. In addition, Kinzie reveals to Percy that Hylla was forced to fight Otrera to the death twice, winning both times, before Thanatos' release stopped Otrera from being resurrected a third time.
Percy and Annabeth learn that Gaea has been able to resurrect all of the Gigantes that the Seven have killed so far using the Doors of Death. However, the Seven manage to close the Doors of Death, preventing Gaea from being able to resurrect anyone else again.
After learning from Nike that one of them will die defeating Gaea, the Seven seek out the Physician's Cure as a way of resurrecting whoever will fall. While making the Physician's Cure for them, Asclepius mentions his previous resurrection of Hippolytus with it and the troubles that it had caused.
After Leo Valdez is killed defeating Gaea, Festus resurrects him using the Physician's Cure.
After dying of Akhenaton's Curse, Walt Stone is resurrected when he becomes the permanent host of Anubis. However, his resurrection is dependent upon Anubis remaining in his body rather than being cured of his curse.
After encountering Nero's Germani servants, Apollo realizes that they are from ancient times and Nero explains that souls always escape from Erebos and that as a god-emperor, it is easy for him to call back to life people who worshipped him.
Apollo, Grover Underwood and Gleeson Hedge fight Naevius Sutorius Macro who was resurrected by Caligula similar to how Nero called back to life his Germani followers. Apollo accidentally kills Marco when he inadvertently causes Marco's automatons to self-destruct.
Medea is revealed to have been resurrected again, having escaped through the Doors of Death as Aphrodite had predicted before they were closed. In addition, Medea has managed to resurrect the faded Titan Helios in her efforts to make Caligula the new sun god. Medea is killed for a second time by Piper McLean while Apollo convinces Helios to fade once again.
While talking to Apollo about the death of Jason Grace, Nico di Angelo mentions that when he found Hazel in the Fields of Asphodel, he could sense that she didn't belong there and that she needed to return to life. With Jason, Nico senses that he is at peace and that trying to resurrect Jason would only dishonor his sacrifice, particularly as Nico senses that Jason is somewhere better now.

- Of all of the named characters who have been resurrected, only Thalia Grace, Hazel Levesque, Lityerses, Gwendolyn, Echo, Narcissus, Leo Valdez and Walt Stone are known to still be alive. Others such as Zoe and Pasiphaë are likely still alive, but it is unknown for sure as Zoe was only seen once while being released from her father turning her to gold and Pasiphaë was last seen being dropped down a bottomless pit by Hazel.
- Despite Thanatos stating in The Son of Neptune that he was going to be hunting down the souls who had escaped from the Underworld and were resurrected, at the very least Lityerses and Medea were able to avoid this fate while Pluto is suggested to have chosen to ignore the resurrections of Gwendolyn and the other members of the Twelfth Legion Fulminata who died in the Battle of New Rome and came back before Thanatos was freed. In addition, one of Percy's suggestions upon meeting Carter Kane in The Son of Sobek is that he is a spirit that had escaped from the Underworld while the Doors of Death were open, suggesting that more resurrected souls may in fact still be out there and still have not been taken care of by Thanatos.
- Hazel Levesque and Nico di Angelo refer to Hazel's resurrection several times as her having been given a second life rather than Hazel having been restored to life.
- In The Son of Neptune, Hazel suggests to Percy that if she corrects her mistakes, namely helping Gaea to raise Alcyoneus, she'll get rejudged and maybe get into Elysium rather than simply being automatically returned to the Fields of Asphodel once her second life is over. At this point, Hazel hadn't been resurrected for more than a few months and was expecting to die again soon when Thanatos was released. This suggests that a resurrected person gets a second trial before the judges of the Underworld where their fate after death can be changed based upon their actions while alive once again.
