Best Game of Thrones Series CharactersBimmyJim
The Top Ten
You can't spell pimp without imp
The master of wit, sarcasm and charm. Even if he isn't your favourite character, he's in most people's top 10. Stole the scene any time he appeared.
Truly great actor. Master of grand speeches: Battle of Blackwater, his own trial. Can communicate with three words 'Shae please don't' or not speaking at all walking through the battlefield after the Loot Train. All this as well as witty and kind
Not even close--He has it all, wit, some aggression, cleverness, reasonable, diplomacy, riches, women, ability to stand up to authority yet respect it, battle tactics. His lack of inches is accounted for by being the best character in the show. Everyone ought to aspire to be like Tyrion!V 168 Comments
Arya is a women, yet she has more balls than most of the characters. Certainly more balls than Joffery.
And remember how pissed she was when she found out that he was dead and she didn't get to see him die or kill him? - Caleb9000
Give this girl a needle and she'll sew a legacy with her enemies blood as the thread. She's never made the victim, unlike her older sister, except when she chooses to suffer for her studies in murder school. She demands justice and walks among the most ruthless of warriors (the Hound and Faceless Man) and murders as an equal. Funny how she is nearly as short as the dwarf, yet manages to be so much deadlier and easier to underestimate. Arya "Not a Lady" Stark is the Mountain of the Stark family.
I would say cercei or jamie, but I have to say, for best (not most interesting), Arya.
She is an absolute badass and in season 8 her fighting prowess and personality are so unique and powerful that she is easily the most fun character to watch during combat and also just as a character a very fun one
Arya is the smartest of the entire family. The rest will all die for honor, she will live for revenge. - GwenhwyfarV 141 Comments
Jon Snow is one of the best protagonists in television/book history. He has had some of the most iconic and fist pumping moments on the show and books. Plus he has a badass best friend in Ghost.
Jon is a born leader, charismatic, heroic, good-hearted but with northern toughness, someone people will trust and follow in battle, like they did Ned stark; we need some of those old-fashioned heroes to root for not only anti-villains (interesting they may be)
Unloved and mock from the beginning, even by ignorant Catherine Stark although he was the true heir to the throne. Always fought the odds by becoming Lord's Commander of the Night's watch without asking, then King of the North without asking. He was the only true hero in GoT. He should have become king of the 7 kingdoms, but they made him a pathetic character at last.
The textbook definition of a morality robot. Sorry. Makes for a great character that you root for because it's expected of you. But not at all very complex. This show became a hit because of GRAY characters, not Mary Sues. Can you imagine what this show would have become if it was filled with Jon Snows and Ned Stark? One word: cancelled. - WeatherWizV 197 Comments
She is an idiot and thinks the throne rightfully belongs to her even though it does not. She has proved to be a terrible ruler and only acts out of her own self interest.
Haters gotta hate. Name one other character that freed slaves, sacrificed her army to save the world, and gets betrayed because she might actually have to act like a conqueror. I don't know what Varys or the other haters expect. You have to eventually say enough is enough and take out your enemies. - Gwenhwyfar
She is the closet Game of Thrones character who can be called a protagonist
She deserves the first position.V 98 Comments
He's an interesting character. He has a complex view on violence and war, having displayed both tenderness and ruthlessness. But in all fairness, he still has a good heart, a touching compassion for things he loves and believes in. He treats Tyrion as a little brother who needs his protection. Season 4 is my favorite season partly because of that genuine brotherly love.
Arguably the most good looking and coolest character. I have always vouched for him
The best man with honor.
There are no men like me, only meV 53 Comments
Simply the best!
Great personality, amazing dark humour and wit, a man with simple desires but is recognized for his talents. He can duel the best of the best and make them look silly. A good friend of the best character of Tyrion. He makes many episodes of the show worth watching!V 28 Comments
He saw everything coming all the time, but not even he could predict bad character writing in season 7.
At least his in the Top 10.
Replace him with Jorah.
He is the only worthy of the clown bevande he plan everything.V 38 Comments
The Kindest Man in all of fiction took in His Nephew Jon Snow and claimed he was his son at the expense of His Honor to protect him From Robert Baratheon arranged the financial Future of one of Robert,s Bastards When he discovered Cersei,s Children Were bastards He wishes to tell Robert but not out of Spite rather to put the rightful Heir Stannis on the throne however before doing so he warned Cersei to leave so her Children would be spared eventually He confesses to false accusations of treason to protect his Family which costs him his life.
He made all the wrongs decisions for the right reasons. - Gwenhwyfar
Way overrated I said what I said - pjo
The most honest, brave and good character in the world of Game of Thrones. He should be live and rule, not the cunning and coward sometimes mad others. The Stark house is the best!V 52 Comments
Robb Stark is totally too high on this list. Don't get me wrong, he was a strong character but he wasn't very unique, interesting, or cunning. He seemed like another typical 'hero'. I wouldn't place him in the top 5 characters of all time.
He wasn't afraid to do what was necessary. He followed his heart and his mind at the same time. He was 19 but acted like a true leader. This was proven not only in battle(he never lost a battle) he treated his people equally. His death for me is definitely the best moment in the series and will always haunt me.
DUDE he was the worst and so boring, he's way too high up for a character that almost immediately died - pjo
He is the bestV 33 Comments
So full of hate towards the world, yet so wanting of love. His burnt face a scar showing both his fierceness and soft vulnerability on the other side. He's done terrible acts, yet has a heart wishing he could do good! "The Hound " Sandor Clegane is and will always be one of the best characters ever made! "
The only character on the show to actually have a meaningful arc. He goes from being a mindless killer that follows orders like a dog, to being his own man and actually becoming a hero in a strange way.
Best and most relatable character in the show!
This guy is the funniest and best just got to like him.V 55 Comments
Tywin should be number one. His cold and heartless view of politics and war describes a game of thrones. His character defines GOT's genre as being ruthless. He is a unique character which makes the viewer question how far he would go to see his plan/motives fulfilled. Won the war of the five kings. Not a boring hero but a dark anti Hero.
Miss you Tywin! Even though you were a jerk - Gwenhwyfar
Dude really how is tywin above sansa AND margaery - pjo
Brilliant strategist, was actually capable of running the kingdom properly, ruthless but not unnecessarily cruelV 13 Comments
Most intriguing and complex character by far. A lot of hate for Cersei from people it's often due to misunderstanding and double standards. Lena is such an amazing character who did Cersei justice.
SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST INTELLIGENT, BAD-ASS VILLEINS AROUND. I LOVE TO HATE HER!
It's really annoying that people want to talk so much crap about Daenerys, despite all the good she's done, but they love to talk up Cercei, despite how many people she murdered. Jeoffry was all her fault, she groomed him to be that spoiled and awful and evil. She blew up an ancient sept and killed thousands of people. Oh yeah, she's sooo "empowering" >.< - Gwenhwyfar
This woman is ruthless, dangerous, powerful (and very, very hot, if I say so myself... If only she was into women) and I just love her whole character, from beginning to end (or first book to last). - hefausV 38 Comments
She was my favorite female character in the series. I love how manipulative, smart and ambitious for power she is, but at the same time she is very gentle, soft and has a good heart. These combinations of traits make her a very peculiar and rare female character. As a bonus, I consider her the most pretty and elegant girl of the show. GOT lost much of its grace without Margaery. - Palmeiras
Should be WAY higher, legend who deserves better - pjo
Margery was an incredibly interesting and satisfying character to watch. She always had something up her sleeve and was ruthless but maintained her kindness and loyalties. Was such a shame to see her fo
Margaery is truly a manipulative genius. One of the smartest characters in the series.V 16 Comments
Hated her for years, finally started to like her, and she acts completely irrational this season and broke her promise to Jon. - Gwenhwyfar
Most developed and underrated character in the entire show by far
She invented character development! - fangirl1967
Realism at its best.V 42 Comments
A man does not know what to write about him
Best character no doubt about that, I think that there could make a series out of him
Different, but better than the others
Jaqen H'ghar isn't even a character, but a fake name that one of the faceless used once :D He's still the best. - GwenhwyfarV 20 Comments
Ygritte! I love this girl so much! How is she not even in the top 20? I love just about every scene Ygritte is in. She's entertaining and hilarious. Every thing that comes out of this girls mouth is pure gold. She's easily one of the most quotable characters in the whole series. Besides Ygritte being hilarious, quotable, entertaining, exciting, and just having an all around likable personality, Ygritte also is a skilled fighter and I have to give her props for her survival skills. Not many people can survive behind the wall, and Ygritte is one of the few girls in a group of dangerous men, yet she gladly holds her own. While she may not be properly educated, the girls got street smarts, shown by how cunning and quick thinking she is. Can I also just complement the girl for how much sass and independence she has? The way Ygritte stands up for herself and her opinions is just so admirable to me. Despite all of these things I adore about Ygritte, my favorite thing has got to be her ...more - EllaInTheRankings
She is more interesting in the books. - Gwenhwyfar
annoying - pjo
She had an awesome voice..V 14 Comments
Vote for him so he can get closer to khaleesi on the list.
And yet here you stand and yet here I stand.
He SUCKS and I hate him - pjo
He is a good person. He stood with Daenerys and protected her till he died in the war.V 22 Comments
He used to be one of my favorite. Now I hope he burns. - Gwenhwyfar
Makes the show roll on - BallBall11
He defines the phrase 'Knowledge is power'. - LightningBlade
He knows what you do, what you think and what you eat. The master of whispers influences many incidents on GoTV 11 Comments
If Ser Davos appears in a scene, you well know that it is a damn good one. Easy Top 5 for me.
Most underrated character of the series full stop
This guy is one of the absolutely best character in both show and books. Loyal, interesting, smart, kindhearted, interesting background... The whole package - hefaus
Love this guy, he's intelligent without being an ass about it and common he took his insulting nickname and made it his banner.V 25 Comments
Completely stole the show in any scene he was in, which is saying a lot considering season 4 of game of thrones was the best season of any show ever
The only bad thing was his lack of screen time.
He should have been king.
AWESOME actor!V 35 Comments
Woah, where is the love for Ser Brienne? Too bad they left out most of her story. - Gwenhwyfar
SO annoying, I literally hate her more than almost everyone. thinks she's better than she is - pjo
I think she is awesome...you remember they created a Star Wars character for her...
Can't stand her. She's so silly she sounds like a female version of The Black Knight from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". - truckturnerV 17 Comments
Every moment was golden that she was on the screen. - Gwenhwyfar
The swaggiest dead a character could have in game of thrones
Sharp tongue and the fact that she is alive at her age in this cruel world shows that she is a survivor who can handle bad fortune. Says harsh things that might not be true but always enliven a conversation. And how can you go wrong with Diana Rigg?V 12 Comments
Dude what the hell he was horrible and not to mention, PAINFULLY badly acted. I've never seen a villain portrayed so horribly in my life - pjo
He played his character beautifully enough. If people hated his character so much, it is because how amazingly he portrayed the role. And that, is an actor's greatest victory. - RockNRoll
Favourite bad guy
Sadism 100 - RockNRoll
Why the hell is he on the 26th in the list he is the most ruthless,brutal and twisted character you could ever find he deserve to be at least on the top tenV 19 Comments
Theon had the best character development in the whole series
Theon is the most tragic character in Game of Thrones in my opinion. Even though I love other characters like Jaime and Tyrion Lannister and Arya Stark, I still think that Theon was the best on the show. He may have been an ass in the first couple seasons, and even betrayed Robb for really no reason, but he recognized his mistakes and even ended up dying to protect the Starks. Ramsay Bolton put him through hell. He castrated him and made him believe his name was Reek. He eventually ended up saving Sansa from Ramsay and protected her like she was his actual sister. Theon Greyjoy made a lot of mistakes, but it’s hard not to love him (no matter how hard I try). The only thing Theon ever wanted was to be a Stark.
I'm a sucker to traitors and flawed characters, especially those who become better and try to redeem themselves. Theon Greyjoy is part of this trope and I love it.
Viserys targaryen, but raised by the right parents (albeit an adoptive one). - RaydionV 13 Comments
Greatest of all, Stannis is the one true king of the Seven Kingdoms
Everyone always says underrated, but compared to what? He was boring and unimaginative and had a stick up his ass the whole time - Gwenhwyfar
The boss. He goes on the front of the Blackwater invasion
Extremely underrated character. Found his story arc incredible - going from warlord with a right to be King, to murdering his beautiful daughter. A totally flawed character - which made him so interesting. Kinda wished he turned out to be good, but alas!V 25 Comments
Probably one of the most under valued character
High in the halls of the kings who are gone
jenny would dance with her ghosts - Gwenhwyfar
Po'Dick brings the Payne - BallBall11
"Big Dick Podrick"V 9 Comments
I think I speak for everyone when I say, "HODOR! " - Pluma
The friendly neighborhood giant who is willing to sacrifice himself to save those who will be given the glory and honor. Hold the Door, Hodor!
Definitely most peaceful, selfless and innocent character in this Game and that all without the need to say more than one word - HODOR.
Hodor hodor hodor hodorV 7 Comments
Top 10 definitely funny as
Most fun character
Best Character by farV 19 Comments
Most misunderstood. She is definitely one of the most interesting and mysterious characters. I think she gets too much hate for being a radical
One of, if not the, most misunderstood character. Even if she can be too extreme, she does just as many good things as the bad stuff.
Am I the only one who is kind of appalled by Melisandre because she was a seductive witch?
You kidding me? She is one of the most cruelest characters.V 5 Comments
Look at that punchable face. - Not_A_Weeaboo
The best thing about him was his death, he finally got his golden crown.
"A crown of gold! "
He is by far my favorite character, I'm so glad he ended up being the new king!
Because he is quiet and clever. I don't know why but I love his character
Bran what were you doing?! - Gwenhwyfar
coolV 16 Comments
What is Dead May Never Die!
annoying - pjo
Probably Daenerys biggest threat. Also makes badass statements
"Godless? Why, Aeron, I am the godliest man ever to raise sail! You serve one god, Damphair, but I have served ten thousand. From Ib to Asshai, when men see my sails, they pray"
He is quickly becoming one of my favourite characters of season 7. - IronSabbathPriest
She doesn't deserve to be in this list! A manipulative traitor. Her chosen way to get to wealth doesn't need much grey cells!
She is a passionate strong loving woman and fearless!
She is amazing
Truthful opinion? Seriously. The naked women come and go you don't even remember their names or faces after awhile. Completely expendable. The storyline would have been better served had they revisited Tyrion's former wife who was gang raped. When Shae was murdered I felt like pass the dip or took a bathroom break.V 1 Comment
He's the funniest character in Game of Thrones! - Weasltown
Hillarious old man that tricks everyone into thinking he's a bumbling old fool, but actually is one of the smartest people in kings landing
He killed a white walker
The casting of this actor was pure genius,what not to love about this guy, yeah, a coward, in his mind, but in reality a beacon of light to the good and his fearful intelligence to the ignorant.
Sam is in my opinion, the only truly good character in both the books and the show. He needs so much more love and appreciation! - hefaus
He has a heart of Gold, period.V 6 Comments
Deserves higher - pjo
He's hot and he could goofy with arya.,
He's supeer hot! I love his speaking voice., plus I feel bad for him when a lot of people broke his trust., he's so trusting.,my poor baby :(
I would love to see Gendry and arya's relationship develop more... - PenpineappleapplepenV 5 Comments
Literally just disappeared lmao - pjo
THIS GUY JUST... IS AMAZING!
What a personality great warrior crazy looks
Should definitely check the top ten
Should definitely be higher.. Was a fun loving king and great warrior
Robert was awesome. As a king he was always laughing, and told ned that he was always too serious. Before he was king, he was a great warrior.
...rhymes with willy
I actually preferred him to Bran. Both were physically impaired and had visions, but Bran was so whinny about it. This guy never backed out even though he knew he was going to die by bringing Bran to the three-eyed raven.
I think he is the greatest character in the whole show and is very underrated. I believe that bran stark is going to be very important by the end of this amazing show and it will be all because of jojen.
He's very intelligent, and I like his character.
"That was poor planning."
"My sister carries the weapons."
Osha is a loyal and friendly wildling for House Stark. I hate Ramsey for killing her -.-
Loyal, brave and smarter than she looked
I would choose a direwolf over a dragon any day! The direwolves were simply adorable! - Penpineappleapplepen
Ghost for the win!
Best creatures in the show.
Dragons can be a bit much
He and Jon are the only heroes - lukemcnamara72
One hell of an awesome dragon
HOW IS SHE 41 BRO - pjo
A loyal friend. And it doesn't hurt that she is beautiful.
Devoted friend, comes onto the screen at the best times for his allies.
Good boi - Not_A_Weeaboo
BRO he deserves way higher - pjo
My favorite one
Greatest character.V 2 Comments
"Some people will always need help. That doesn't mean they're not worth helping."
She had to mercy kill her own brother, the person she loved the most, to end his suffering...there is nothing stronger than that.
