Best Game of Thrones Series Characters
The Top Ten Best Game of Thrones Series Characters
You can't spell pimp without imp
Like his father, a great mind and great strategist. Far more emotional and a human being unlike his father and sister. Top 5 material.
In the harsh&serious world of Game of Thrones every time Tyrion comes on the screen it feels like a breath of fresh air. He honestly seems like the nicest guy in this series' entire universe. He genuinely cares for those who need care, he's honest and has a way of diffusing tension through humour and by not taking anyone and anything too seriously. I love him very much!
The best character in GOT... imp slap! That was the best moment
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
I can't help but up vote Arya! There are many great characters but if I really had to pick one it would be Arya. She's the most relatable character in my opinion. She is a strong force of nature in her own way. She is not afraid to be her self no matter what others say. She don't care about your needlework. Lol. She's been bullied, she lacks self confidence, she's lost people that she loves, she's been hurt emotionally and physically but she is living. She has never giving up on life no matter what. - Penpineappleapplepen
One of the best, most complex characters I've ever seen on a T.V. series. I look forward to see what is gonna happen with her next. Maisie Williams does an amazing job with playing Arya! The growth that she has done is amazing. Not easy for such a young person to do what she does. Long live Arya! Soon to be hand of the King/Queen!
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.
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)
Jon snow is very powerful, magical, clever and amazing, he is my hero
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.
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.
A true leader with so much passion for justice. Her only problem is that she doesn't know when to stop and as Jon Snow told her, she lacks mercy on her opponents.
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
Okay from a biased woman's perspective Dany is probably the best character out there. Not only did she first over power her brother which was unlikely in the middle ages but she married into a clan of people that she didn't even know, learnt the language in no time, was names 'khaleesi' showing her immense power even after Drogo had died, went into fire with her dead husband and three petrified dragon eggs but lived through the flames showing she is a true dragon, and helped hatch three dragons that were meant to be extinct for centuries! Then she locked p the king of Quarth in an unlockable vault with one key that on of her Dorthraki soldiers has got, manages to bring up her dragons and gain the title 'mother of dragons, then went to other major cities, got 8,000 unsullied soldiers and freed them from their slave bonds yet they still stayed with her, tricked the slave owner by one of her dragons burning him alive after she traded one for the army, then went and freed another 2,000 ...more
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.
Easily the best character in the series. Dynamic, complex, compelling and fun to watch.
It's a shame the series was cancelled after season 4, but I guess at least that prevented the producers from ruining the rest of the series.
He's amazing. I love the show but I feel like recently a lot of the larger characters (Tyrion, Dany, Jon) have all been getting a little boring. I am never bored with Jaime. He's not a 'good man' but he has a good heart. He's done his fair share of good and bad and he recognises himself for it. He's not wholly good but certainly not wholly evil. Everything I love about the show in one character. - KoishNoish
Easily best character, most compelling arc in the whole series, to bad s8 ruined him like it did everyone else though.
Great fighter, great comedian. I loved every single episode he played in. Top 10 material.
You probably don't know his father but bronn himself is unforgettable.
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!
Bronn is who most men would love to be.
A great cunning individual. He knows how to play the Game of Thrones, came from common folk up to Lordship.
Petyr is a cunning ruthless character whose gift of social manipulation and maneuvering is something to behold. Always an interesting episode when he's involved. The destiny of many other GOT characters were highly influenced by his involvement, making him a master puppeteer, a shadowy protagonist who is much loved!
Most cunning and intelligent person in Westeros. His weakness for Catelyn and later Sansa became his downfall.
The most ABSOLUTE greatest character in the show. Complete puppet master and manipulates EVERYONE. The slickest and move clever character. I honestly can never put into words how much I love Baelish and how he is without a DOUBT the most interesting character. Most people don't give him a chance cause his scenes are "boring" because most of his scenes are just of him talking...however, if they were to pay attention and actually LISTEN to what he was ever saying, they would realize he is LITERALLY ruling and playing EVERYONE, while staying in the middle ground and pretty much on everyones side. Again, he is the BEST.
While I understand why he died so quickly doesn't mean it eases the pain. I would have loved seeing mor of Ned in the series. He would have been a great king, never betraying his integrity. :c
Eddard was awesome. He had that silent grim awesomeness to him that made you think, dang he's awesome. he's your basic warrior but more. Why did he die :-(
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.
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!
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! "
Survivalist, great warrior. I like his vocabular en fighting style.
Comfortably the most intriguing & interesting individual in Westeros. Unpredictable at all times. No matter what he was up to, it was thoroughly engrossing & enjoyable to witness. What should really push him to the top of this list, is the way in which his arc panned out - from brutal bloodthirsty hateful "Hound", to bordering on selflessly soft & considerate to the people he cared for around him. There's a reason both Sansa and Arya cared deeply for him. And that reason should be good enough for anyone else.
Okay the hound was underrated. He was awesome, dutiful, and hated Joffrey. What else do you want?
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.
King in the North! Robb Stark was the man! R.I. P to the Young Wolf!
DUDE he was the worst and so boring, he's way too high up for a character that almost immediately died - pjo
Great mind, great strategist and not the best father. He plays the Game of Thrones at best of all Westeros. Great character. He should be in the top 5 in this list.
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.
Brilliant strategist, was actually capable of running the kingdom properly, ruthless but not unnecessarily cruel
A bad guy but still epic. He's even cooler in the books.
A very cunning and intelligent woman. So has no right to the throne, but took it anyway at the cost of her last living who she deeply loved. She was born to play the Game of Thrones. Top 5 material.
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.
I hate her, but I love hating her. As much as I want to see her die, she is essential to keeping us on our feet.
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
Good, kind and smart. The best queen in the entire show. Some people can't admitted they were wrong about her. I will Love her forever
I hated her at first. But as the story progresses, I've been sympathizing with Sansa. She's not my favorite character, but I think Sansa is a great character because she's very realistic. I think many of us women hate Sansa because she's the portrait of what we were when we were a pre-teens. Sansa begins the story overly naive, with misconceptions views about romance, waiting for her perfect enchanted prince or boyfriend. She begins entirely guided by appearances and unaware of the wickedness of the world. But then Sansa has to deal with dozens of terrible situations that give her a reality shower. She matures with all pain and starts to enter in the game. - Palmeiras
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
Margaery is truly a manipulative genius. One of the smartest characters in the series.
One of the smartest characters in the series. Pity she got killed off before we could see her plan unfold.
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
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
A man does not know what to write about him
A man is no one but at least a GOT fan could bring him into the top 10.
The Awesome man with Awesome attitude and Awesome dialogues
Best character no doubt about that, I think that there could make a series out of him
Theon had the best character development in the whole series
A complete ass who slowly became very likeable from the torture he endured. One of the biggest character changes in Game of Thrones.
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.
Vote for him so he can get closer to khaleesi on the list.
A great companion and one of the best advisers around. His story of love throughout the series has been a tragic and cautionary one. He's wise, loyal, a great fighter, and a very honorable man. Jorah believes in the queen he is fighting for and is a great friend. (Friendzoned maybe, but still a great friend. ) He might have done a terrible thing by spying on Daenerys in the beginning of the show, and while Daenerys had every right to banish him, Jorah righted his wrongs by becoming a faithful companion even after he was pardoned for his crimes and was free to go back home. I love this guy. - EllaInTheRankings
King Of The Friendzone, but nevertheless my favourite character on the show. Here's to him surviving until the end!
He is a good person. He stood with Daenerys and protected her till he died in the war.
A bit smarter then Tyrion, because he has no cock. He was until season 6 my most interesting character.
He knows what you do, what you think and what you eat. The master of whispers influences many incidents on GoT
He know everyone and everything. He worked up from nothing, and he's not a bad person.
Sneaky Bald Guy, what else.
Free-Minded, Passionate, Cocky and a skilled warrior. Need a film of his own!
Only in 8 episodes he won almost every GoT fans heart, one of the biggest turn ups in GoT...
Deserves higher spot...
A poetic warrior with with a mission to live and die for. There's never been a better character
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
I've always admired Davos as he has been a constant voice of reason (both to Stannis and later to Jon). Although extremely loyal, he is not afraid to go against want his "king" commands in order to do what is right.
If Ser Davos appears in a scene, you well know that it is a damn good one. Easy Top 5 for me.
Love this guy, he's intelligent without being an ass about it and common he took his insulting nickname and made it his banner.
How is the Onion Knight so low? Easily top 20. One of the few truly good people who doesn't have a lust for power on/in the show/books.
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
Ygritte: Is that a palace?
Jon Snow:... It's a windmill
Jon Snow: I'd like to see you in a silk dress
Ygritte: would ya?
Jon Snow: So I could tear it off you..
Ygritte: Well you rip my pretty silk dress, I'll blacken your eye.
Love her scenes with Jon Snow
..."You know nothing Jon Snow"
You know nothing Jon Snow
She was the awesome one... Really really adorable
#1 character in my opinion. The best at playing the Game of Thrones. Straightfoward woman and does a lot of roasting. I liked every scene with her.
"War is war, but killing at a wedding... horrible. What a monster would do such a thing?"
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?
She is truly one of the smartest and most formidable characters in the Game of Thrones series. Not only does she have an extremely interesting and fun personality that is so much different from other noble house leaders, but she also plays the Game of thrones extremely well and every single one of her scenes is immensely interesting. Very good character in my opinion.
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...
Because brienne of tarth character and actress who plays her are pretty good at there and I think I recall when she was young she was a ballerina that wore a suit of armour - Red26473
By far the most evil man in Westeros. When you think he wouldn't go that far, he does!
Best villain! His ruthlesness was unheard of. It made me feel pity for Theon even when I hated him for being a traitor. I loved hating the guy.
His death was one of the best moments in my life so climatic!
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
The biggest, nastiest, most sadistic villain in the show. You root for his death I think the character while being unpalatable deserves higher than 78. I'd say 25.
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!
Can do things in bed no other man can. Period.
High in the halls of the kings who are gone
jenny would dance with her ghosts - Gwenhwyfar
This guy needs so much more love. If the writers of the show had stuck with his actual arc I think he could've been much higher on the list, but that's just my opinion. Great character in both medias anyway - hefaus
Only character who does not have an ego in any way
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 hodor
A simple fighting spirit for the free folk. I really like his character. Came into my top 10 when he flirted with Brienne.
This Character deserves so much more time then what he gets! He is honestly my favorite character by far. I hope they do something more with him because no one else deserves as much air time as the Wildling that set all differences aside to forge an alliance with the people that killed his own.
Brilliant character. So badass I'm. Rooting for him and brienne to
Best character. Looks and acts most like what you would expect a wildling to.
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.
The best thing about him was his death, he finally got his golden crown.
"A crown of gold! "
Look at that punchable face. - Not_A_Weeaboo
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
One of the most disliked characters on this show but I think it's because of his disability, he's no swordsman and other characters have died trying to help him. But I think he is going to end up being very important because of his visions that reveal the truth of what happened in the past and future. And I can't imagine Martin would keep him around and alive without having a good reason.
I personally, find this character extremely interesting, intriguing and couldn't wait until this storyline was resumed and so far, I haven't been disappointed. A super, supernatural storyline. Hope he isn't killed off. Even the fall from the window was an iconic event in the series. Powerful young actor makes you feel everything the character endures and feels. Well done! I like very much!
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.
Are you kidding me? Is this all just a game to you people? IT'S SAMWELL TARLY! He's at 91... He's such an integral part of the story. He killed a white walker. ' Shae didn't. ' ' Robb Stark didn't. You are all fools.
He's smart, kind, brave, and knows himself.
That boy has a golden heart and is full of kindness, how can he be so unappreciated.
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.
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
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
What is Dead May Never Die!
annoying - pjo
What a personality great warrior crazy looks
Should definitely check the top ten
Literally just disappeared lmao - pjo
THIS GUY JUST... IS AMAZING!
Northern version of Tywin
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... - Penpineappleapplepen
Deserves higher - pjo
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.
Awesome and one of the best character
...rhymes with willy
Hated by fans of Jon Stark. But how would you feel about a child you believed was conceived by your husband with another woman in the same year you were expecting your own first child? Of course, he would be a symbol of betrayal to your marriage. But she was fearless about her love for her husband and children. The definition of a mother bear.
Integrity bar none. And a great player of the game. She used politics to succeed where she could. Divine loyalty to her family - her role as a guiding mother unambiguous. Michelle Fairly saw to it that songs would one day be sung about the Good Lady.
Cat is so underrated. She is such an amazing and exiting character. The mother who everyone would have
Hated the way she treated jon. Cannot like her character for that reason
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
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.
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.
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
One hell of an awesome dragon
He and Jon are the only heroes - lukemcnamara72
"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.
Bravery and duty, no matter the consequences
