Yes,but as I said itachi-san made big mystake.On greek there is no planet called Hades.I think he ment Mars-Aris.Hades is the god of underworld,Aris is the god of the war.Also Jupiter is Dias,but if i remember correct they use Zeus also.That's total mixed up and cofused me a lot.You forgeting the Earth-Gaia.Pluto is not anymore main planet in the Solar system.

Hades and pluto - romans took from greek
Pluto has been dropped I believe as far as a planet is concerned, subjugated to a comet I think.

or shal I come there for a pancake?

Nice job everyone B)) I'll throw in a few comments to clarify some things.

1) There is a meaning to the order I picked. They are in Generational order:

Uranus
Cronus
Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Aphrodite
Ares, Hermes

I chose this order to help (with Uranus) and to confuse (for the last 2)

2) They don't have to represent the Greek versions of the planets. They are actually intended to be the Greek names for the planets. Not only is Pluto Greek, but so is Uranus which doesn't have much of alternative name except for Oraunos (spelled many different ways apparently)

3) I used the original solar system because the current 1 gets too complicated with all the dwarf planets which Pluto is now a part, and what is and what shouldn't be classified as this or that...

4) Also, a case could be made to include Gaia, so I added a hint that said she didn't meet 1 of the criteria. Her Roman counterpart is Terra. There is no Greek God that actually is corresponds to the name Earth

You better check greek mythology,Gaia is the goddess of the Earth and that's how the greeks call the earth-Gaia.Can you tell me which planet is Hades?

If you are lost in space I don't know for what ether you talking about,but if you want come to Gaia,but i doubt for the pancake,just because I haven't try one yet,but you can bring something sweet from the outer space!

Here's your answer for Hades: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hades

As for Gaia, perhaps I misspoke or wasn't clear enough. Earth is not directly named after a God. Earth is a modern word derived from many sources. I accounted for this in a hint I posted to clarify this exact question. If you call the Earth Terra, then you are 1 in a million.
