Best Game of Thrones Series Characters

The Top Ten

1 Tyrion Lannister Tyrion Lannister is a fictional character in A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones. In Game of Thrones, the character is portrayed by Peter Dinklage.

An eye-opener he truly is. Pityful and yet he has the wits that none can match(at least who I know of).

He is merciful, kind and determined towards welfare of the country. His negative qualities such as alcoholic addiction and lust are rather too funny to hate him. Speaks always the right thing

I don't like this show. But this guy is great. He is the only character that I liked from the start in this boring show. I must say that Emmy win was well deserved.

Like his father, a great mind and great strategist. Far more emotional and a human being unlike his father and sister. Top 5 material.

Tyrion is easily the best and most fleshed out character of game of thrones. He is flawed and yet one of the most noble characters. He isn't good to a fault like Ned Stark though and really knows what to do to stay alive in the bloody world of westeros. I will always remember his dialogues when he was facing death for killing joffrey. Simply one of the best moments of the show. He is the only one who I wish doesn't die. I couldn't care less about the others.

2 Arya Stark Arya Stark is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She is a prominent point of view character in Martin's award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series, and also a main character in HBO's adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones.

Arya Stark is a strong independent woman who no need man's help. She single-handedly saved Westeros by killing Night King. I want Arya to be in the MCU. She would have destroyed Thanos!

Genius casting of a young girl who turned out to be a brilliant, committed actress. The most appealing mass murderer in all television.

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.

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.

3 Jon Snow Jon Snow is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

Jon snow is the hero of this story along with Dany, him being the ice to her fire. Out of the two elements I prefer ice. It's cold, hard, and unforgiving just like Jon snows path. He has had to defeat a white walker in single combat to survive the slaughter at hardhome. He held off Mance Rayder's attack on the wall and went on a suicide mission to kill Mance only to be saved at the last moment by stannis. After all this he gets stabbed by his own sworn brothers. He was resurrected by the same woman who burned a little girl. His path has truly been dark and full of danger but he keeps doing what is right. Best character in game of thrones

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.

Jon Snow is simply the best character in the series. He didn't even had royalty still through his bravery and his skills he rose to the position of king in the north. Even when being a illegitimate he was chose to be the king. That shows the amount of leadership skills he has and how much people admire him

4 Daenerys Targaryen Daenerys Targaryen is a fictional character in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, as well as the television adaptation.

SPOILER: I hated how cold she was when her child died. If it was a human child they would have written a more appropriate reaction for her to portray smh! They made her a horny, sexually-driven Queen in the last two episode, who only cares about getting laid with Jon Snow and cares less about her children. She even recklessly took the two remaining dragons to the meeting with Cersei, allowing them to notice how vulnerable they could be! Unfortunately, you can tell at the meeting that her presence is nothing compared to the presence of Cersei, Tyron, and Jon. She is becoming more clueless and naive as the show progresses and I don't like it.

God I love this character. My favorite part is that she's morally complex, and yes at times she needs to be taken down a peg or two, but she genuinely wants to do the most good, even if there is no good or clear way forward. She tries, and she fails, and she tries again. I hate that often times women characters are one-note, either as a weak plot device or a male fanservice. I enjoy that she is a real person who is imperfect, she may never sit on the iron throne but I certainly hope she makes it to the end, as an advisor, or a co-leader, or helping another she respects for having beaten her in the game

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.

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

5 Jaime Lannister Jaime Lannister is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. He is a prominent point of view character in Martin's award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series, and also a main character in HBO's adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones.

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 the most complex character on the show, hands down. We not only learn how he's perceived, but how he actually is. We learn who he is, what his morals and values are, his honor, his loyalties.

We see him at his highest and his lowest, at his most despicable and his most lovable, his most haughty and his most modest. We hated him when he pushed Bran out the window, we felt sorry for him when he lost his hand, and we even found ourselves cheering for him when he caught that sword with his fake hand.

If there's one thing that defines Thrones, it's grey area, and Jaime is the perfect representation of that. He's not good, but he's in no way evil. He's on Cersei's side (pre-Season 7 finale), but he fights with honor. He broke his oath and killed the king he was sworn to protect, but he did it to save half a million innocent people. He tried to kill Bran Stark, but he swore to protect Sansa and Arya. Jaime redefines what it means to be good or bad, a hero or a villain, ...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.

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.

6 Bronn (Tyrion's Sellsword) Bronn is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

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 the coolest character of the show. Calls-spade-a-spade type. The guy has got amazing one liners. Totally love it every time he is shown!

The best Character on GOT. He is wise, has got heart, is courageous and one of the best fighter in westeros. "You might be big but I am quicker"

Charming, funny and just totally awesome. Bronn is easily the greatest character on GoT.

7 Petyr Baelish (Littlefinger) Petyr Baelish, nicknamed Littlefinger, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

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.

Without him 90% of all Westeros events in the mainstory wouldn't have happened. He is a brilliant mastermind, that learnt to solve his problems with the brain and not the sword and gain power. He climbed the ladder, one step after another. He is the most interesting character and even though you might hate his actions, you have to respect him, for how intelligent he is. We probably know only a small percentage of the things he did. He will sit on the Iron Throne and if it means to be King of the ashes.

Petyr is the wild card. In every single scene he appears he completely steals the show, much like the Joker in The Dark Knight (in the way that he is not supposed to be a main character, but he overrules everyone else he is acting with) - Stunning acting and a completely unpredictable character makes this guy, maybe not the "best" character, but surely the most interesting.

If one of the characters had to pen down the GOT saga, I believe he is the most worthy one to do it, likewise he is one of the handful characters that should last till the very end. His character is like the 'compost' that enables plot 'to bloom', as it is the most credible character among excessively polarized (chaotic good/rightous, chaotic evil/narcisstic = both being predictable thus bit boring) characters in the show.

8 Eddard Stark Eddard "Ned" Stark is a fictional character in the first book of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels and the first season of its television adaptation.

While I understand why he died so quickly doesn't mean it eases the pain. I would have loved seeing more of Ned in the series. He would have been a great king, never betraying his integrity.

Ned was my favourite and always will be. Such an honourable man who cared for his family. And didn't deserve to die that way. Ned should of been kept alive. People say he's dumb because he didn't know how to play the game.of thrones but in my opinion Ned was clever. I know we never really see him fight apart from when he fought Jamie and was going to beat him. Plus Sean bean plays him. Just wish he was alive so everything that happened to his family.woildnt of happened even if it did Ned would of gotten his revenge by war as come on him leading an army against the lannisters they wouldn't of so against.ned as he was very smart in battle. Rip ned

Ned stark was my favourite character, he started the show off and made it great. his character was just amazing. he was honorable but sadly couldn't play the game of thrones. Ned is the main character of the show even though he's not longer alive, his death set everything into motion. plus in the show ned showed jaime that he was just as better as him as a swordsman which was great. RIP NED shame you didn't last longer.

Didn't get to know that much about this character in that regard he was rather cardboard. "A man of the highest honor." That directly defied him admitting to a lie of treason before his head was chopped off. A man whose sense of honor was set in stone would have felt compelled to tell the truth afterall, there exists no honor without truth.

9 Sandor "The Hound" Clegane Sandor Clegane, nicknamed The Hound, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

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.

He's what you get when a good man is driven by hatred and made to serve bad people. Wonderful that his essential decency came through in the end.

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! "

Sandor is one of the best characters in the whole series and cerainley the most quotable. He is also the best anti-hero on the show by far. His relationship with arya is one of the best relationships, if not the best relationship on the show. He is amazing and his character arc is among the best on the show. He deserves at least top 10 for sure.

10 Tywin Lannister Tywin Lannister is a fictional character in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by American novelist George R. R. Martin.

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.

Tywin is the man. A medieval lord, playing this game like it used to be played! He approaches every move like a chess player, knowing very well that a little wrong can result into a lot of time trying to right it, that is why he felt the north was justly aggrieved and tried to antagonise it less than the rest of theLannisters. He embodies how a real man should behave.

I've recently started watching got and I must say I came here juat to vote for him.. He is cold and calculating at the same time ruthless and brave. And charles dance is the best actor there is to play lord tywin.

The Contenders

11 Robb Stark Robb Stark is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

Robb Stark is the boy who gave me hope to avenge Ned's death. He was and still is my favorite character, no offense Jon Snow fans but I think Robb was better, all Jon Snow did was follow commends #JonSnowIsOverrated. Robb went to war to free his father, he promised the stupid oath to try to get early to Kings Landing instead of taking the twins, jaime lannister had 30,000 men while Robb had 20,000 men he was outnumbered and yet succeeded into defeating Jaime. He took many risks, one of them sending Theon Greyjoy who was his best friend to help him get ships, and he got betrayed, then by his mother the person he trusted the most "which on this lords do I trust more then you..." and he got betrayed by her, talisa gave him hope and loyalty he needed someone to actually trust and that's how there love was born, something out of good and loyal. Robb won 3 main battle against the lannisters and he was always outnumbered, he fought for justice and that's why he had to kill karstark "I don't ...more

I know that Robb was at times an idiot, but if he was an idiot than Ned had absolutely no brain activity, because both of them always did the right thing to do, not always the smartest thing to do. Which in the end did end up costing them their lives, that and Walder Frey and the Boltons( Arya slit their throats). But whether you loved him or hated him you have to admit he might of been the greatest general of his time. Seriously, the guy was outnumbered by the Lannisters 3-1 and still destroyed most of their army. Even all of Tyrell's men (which numbered 70-100K) would of been rolled over by the genius that was Robb Stark. And I don't know about you, but I would have loved a scene with the Lannisters out over the fact that Casterly Rock had fallen. Boy do I miss him so much. The King in the North! But despite all of this we must keep this one thing in mind, The North Remembers, EVERYTHING that has happened, and no matter what they will get their revenge.

Robb was amazing, today I watched him die and massacred, the red wedding the call it, king of the north was strategic, smart and brilliant, and very stubborn! He followed his heart, married the one he loved, tried to avenge the death of his father, he didn even think of sitting on the iron throne if he wins against the Lannisters, he just wanted to be free. young wolf, king of the north, you deserve the first place.

Robb is one of the most hateful character. He is the oldest son of Stark. His whole family needs him to rescue them. However he just married and having his own bay. Does he ever think about what his two young sisters and brothers are doing while he enjoying his wife? He is such a selfish man, and he is a king even cannot make his promise.

12 Cersei Lannister Cersei Lannister is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She is a prominent point of view character in Martin's award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series, and also a main character in HBO's adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones.

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.

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" >.<

Tired of Cersei her character is too big without much development. She's rather one dimensional, icey, prideful, vengeful and scheming. This character is NOT complex when has she ever shown mercy, kindness or goodness something opposite of what she usually reeks. Sorry no complexity in this character development.

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.

13 Sansa Stark Sansa Stark is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She is a prominent character in Martin's award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series.

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.

Many people, including the CREATOR of Game of Thrones tends to really torture Sansa. She's been through so much and has grown from it. She knows when to keep stay quiet and still throw shade. Sansa is not like Daenerys or Arya, she's not a character that is pushed to be liked, instead you have to appreciate her and I definitely do. To me she represents a very important part of Game of Thrones, how some people always suffer but always pull through. I believe Sansa's endurance is what makes her the strongest out of all the characters.

Like Jaime, Sansa is one of the MOST interesting character's development! In a certain way, she broke the clichés of princesses used to be fair, naive and obedient all the way. Every one has a dark side and Sansa develops hers with magnificence and maturity. Whereas some characters haven't changed a little bit during all the show (so boring at the end...) she knew how to amaze us with her political and manipulation knowledge owed to Littlefinger and Cersei (Machiavel).

It's the story of a little naive girl who learnt at the schools of monsters

Sansa is a very interesting character! She has been first a naive girl who believed in songs and cheesy dreams and then suddenly her world fell apart, and it made her grow up! Many people hate her because they see her as a weak and stupid girl but she was just a young teenager. I personnally think she can sit on the throne if she knows how to "play" and manipulate the others. She has potential. Shes been through a lot and she learnt to be someone else. SANSA FOR THE WIN

14 Margaery Tyrell Margaery Tyrell is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of high fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

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.

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

I love how she's known for being the queen who could win over the hearts and minds of her people, sort of a contrast to Cersei. I think the reason I like her the best is because I really hate Cersei, actually. Plus, she's played by the one and only Natalie Dormer.

One of the smartest characters in the series. Pity she got killed off before we could see her plan unfold.

15 Jaqen H'ghar

A man does not think a Faceless Man should be at the top spot, but should be in the top 10, as he already is.

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

The Awesome man with Awesome attitude and Awesome dialogues

16 Theon Greyjoy

Of all the characters, he got by far got the largest character developmental arc. He was basically three different characters; self-absorbed, but insecure Theon; Reek; and honorable Theon. He is a very underrated character.

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.

Theon is the Most Complex Character in the Series and While People give him Crap for betraying the Starks He was under threat of death for years Several Characters Mock him for his loyalty to to the Starks then are Morally outraged He Chose his family over them,yes Theon has done terrible things but Was conflicted throughout For example he fully intended to Spare Ser Rodrik until Dagmer Convinced him Otherwise His torture at Ramsay,s Hands also makes you pity him even back in season one Whenever Theon attempts to advise Robb he is dismissed. also Theon is a lot better than Jaime as he takes full responsibility for his actions instead of blaming it on others like Jaime

To be honest, I think the show has been declining a tad bit in the seventh season, but I think that Theon's story and character arc will be one of the strongest parts of season 8, along with Cleganebowl of course.

17 Jorah Mormont

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.

This old dude is fighting a heck of a lot more than the other old guys. He gets his butt kicked and still manages to come out on top. He is so flawed, no moral anchor and doesn't know who or what he is. He is tough and passionate. I don't know if he's lovable but he's pitiable.

"A resilient fighter gifted with a noble soul. Jorah is perhaps the most interesting depiction of a renegade knight in the series."

King Of The Friendzone, but nevertheless my favourite character on the show. Here's to him surviving until the end!

18 Prince Oberyn

For all the characters I would have brought back in the show, I would bring him. He has a good sense of the world, having care for anyone he believes is treated unfairly. Besides all the goody goody about him he's epic in combat! Gosh I'd love to see just another fight with him in it. Best accent in the show as well.

To kill Oberyn was the biggest crime GOT producers/writters ever made. Perhaps they just created a character that was impossible to keep up. He was on his way to become GOT most beloved character. The way he fighted the mountain was just unbelievable, just like a "torero" waltz with a bull!

Oberyn Martell was a Badass character who made us believe that he would defeat the Mountain, but his cockiness and need for confession resulted in his demise. At least he gave one of the best fights in Game of Thrones to date.

Has a healthy and tolerant mind and is full of passion. He loves to love and fights for the people he loves. He has a great humor and is the best fighter of the whole series in my opinion.

19 Lord Varys

Would have been a much better chronicler of the Game than Sam, and unlike George RR Martin he'd have got the bloody thing finished.

He is one of the most under rated characters. But he is the one who is planning and strategizing to protect the greater good. His vision has no match, closest is Lord Baelish. Even Tyrion did not have a solution of where to go after killing his father. And he just plays the game quietly

Sneaky and smart and not the backstabber that Baelish is. Plus, I love how he is able to move through all of the different areas/regions/kingdoms and make himself invaluable wherever he goes.

Varys isn't a spider. I like the calm, reasonable demeanor and the lack of desire to backstab anyone for personal gain.

20 Ygritte Ygritte is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

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

For me Ygritte was stunningly attractive both in outward appearance and character. I liked the candid and unpretentious way she comunicated with Jon. It was far from being corny and nevertheless highly romantic. My heart broke when she died and broke again when Melisandre ruthlessly cited her most adorable phrase to win over Jon Snow.

Ygritte: Is that a palace?
Jon Snow:... It's a windmill

Or

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"

I love her she was funny and awesome, it's to bad she died she was in my top 5 fave

21 Davos Seaworth (The Onion Knight)

This guy has some big balls under his humble and honourable attitude. He challenged stannis when he felt it was needed, cause it was the right thing to do. He can confront melissandre even thou he has brain washed Stannis. He doesn't hide from his responsabilities, neither from what he has done wrong.

In the book he is even more admirable. Coming from a pretty humble life, he made it to become a knight which even a king pretender with divine influences like stannis listens to. That's quite the achievement.

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.

He is a potentially brilliant consult-er but sadly he is boycotted in several occasions. He is a down to earth genius with a pure hearth. I really think that being an adviser for a stupid guy like Stannis has covered his stunning potential to have more impacts.

Davos is my favorite, and proves you can be a gentle soldier and commander. Dude was a father to Shireen, did everything he could to help those in command, but was not so blinded by loyalty that he'd forsake his morals. Would love to see him serve as Hand of the King

22 Brienne of Tarth Brienne of Tarth is a fictional character in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels. She is a prominent point of view character in the fourth novel, A Feast for Crows, and a main character in the television adaptation.

A true hero. She is the most honorable character. I'm glad she's an awesome warrior because I like to see good women succeed.

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".

Most badass Female character of the series, defeated both the Hound and Jamie. Honorable and loyal till the end.

She needs to be higher on this list! Awesome character. She could destroy most of the men in the show.

23 Ramsay Bolton Ramsay Bolton, also known as Ramsay Snow, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

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!

Unlike Joffrey, I actually have respect for this character. Joffrey was just a whiny brat trying to be evil because he thought it would impress everyone. But this guy was trying to impress no one. He killed because he truly was cruel and sadistic, and would stop at nothing to conquer. He had no affection for anyone, and was irredeemable. That makes a true villain.

I hated him, and that is why I liked him. After the death of Joffrey, we needed a person to hate. His evilness, his cunning, his games, all were perfect to make you want him dead. The way he just casually kills some of our favorite characters then carries on as if nothing happened. Then his death was the cherry on top for this character.

I like this guy. He is the true evil madman. This guy has a future as one of the evil geniuses of Hollywood. We want to see more of this mad man in upcoming Hollywood hits.

24 Samwell Tarly

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.

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!

That boy has a golden heart and is full of kindness, how can he be so unappreciated.

25 Olenna Tyrell

#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.

This list is absurd. How come that the Queen of Thorns, one of the sassiest and most sharpe-tongued characters of the series, a fearless woman who wiped the floor with Cersei more than thrice, the responsible for killing that prick Joffrey, the one who faced the High Sparrow in her lonesome and threw in his face he was a fraud, the one capable of embarrass Tywin Lannister, is not at the Top 10? Have people watched her last scene, heard her final speech when Highgarden fell before Jaime Lannister and his army? If they haven't, they must. If they have, Olenna must be put amongst the Top10 as soon as possible.

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.

Probably one of the most politically brilliant minds in Westeros! She is likely responsible for teaching Margaery everything she know.
Forget Mace...Olenna is the matriarch of House Tyrell - governing house of the Reach who hold the largest army in the seven kingdoms. Now that the Lannister's gold is gone...Lady Olenna might find herself of top of Westeros' wealthiest house.
