In this installation of the Percy Jackson series, Apollo tells Percy all about how he took over Helios's sun-driving job during Roman times.

Helios is crushed by Kratos in this bloody video game. (Which is why Helios hates it so much… although it's kind of a guilty pleasure.)

The god of the sun makes a cameo in this Hollywood blockbuster, but he's bummed that he didn't get a bigger part.
- Wrath of the Titans 2012
Helios pops up in yet another Hollywood blockbuster that remixes Greek mythology. Once again, Helios just can't understand why he isn't the star.
