During the Trojan War Athena mocked Ares for daring to challenge her and he lost. Heracles beat Ares once or twice and in one tale when so far as to strip him of his armor. He ran from Typhon. He was defeated by the Alodai. Apollo beat him in a boxing match. Zeus clearly would not be afraid of him and I cannot see Poseidon being either.

About the best I can think of is in one obscure myth he defeated a giant who was considered a great enemy of the gods.

Athena didn`t beat Ares head on. During the Trojan War she surprised him as the power behind a mortal warrior that was about to be slain and he was wounded. Athena was someone who was a clear "writer`s favorite" being the patron Goddess of the capital city of the Greek culture itself. And she did that by winning in a game of wits to Poseidon. She was arrogant to that level, by the way, she also called Poseidon out in that contest.

Heracles also had thee edge over Hades and another god in one tale, but that may have been an outlier..he was the Superman of Greek mythology. Despise being a demi god he was an unusal one at that - being considerably more powerful than any other and having already strength of higher levels.

Ares also wounded heracles in another tale. I need to find a remark of that in the books I have, but I am sure they squared more than twice.

Everyone ran from Typhon. Only Athena in some versions did not. In most only Zeus didn`t. But Athena was extremelly well loved. Extremelly.

Not only a giant but a Dragon too, of Chronos. That tale is awesome but it`s rare to show up in books. It describes how he was awarded one of his monikers.
