Best Game of Thrones Series Characters
The Top Ten
You can't spell pimp without imp
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.
Smallest beautiful outstanding character . $ you tyrion lannister
Like his father, a great mind and great strategist. Far more emotional and a human being unlike his father and sister. Top 5 material.
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?
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.
My favourite character! I look forward to her scenes the most
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.
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.
The story of Jaime Lannister shows loyalty of post on every situation .
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.
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.
Bronn is who most men would love to be.
Bronn is dangerous and his black humor I just love it
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!
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.
Most cunning and intelligent person in Westeros. His weakness for Catelyn and later Sansa became his downfall.
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.
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 :-(
One of the characters I felt most sorry to see go. A just and fair man who put honour before pride. Would have loved to have seen him carry on in the Northern rebellion!
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.
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! "
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.
Survivalist, great warrior. I like his vocabular en fighting style.
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.
King in the North! Robb Stark was the man! R.I. P to the Young Wolf!
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 ...more
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.
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.
Brilliant strategist, was actually capable of running the kingdom properly, ruthless but not unnecessarily cruel
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.
A bad guy but still epic. He's even cooler in the books.
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.
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.
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.
A heartbreaking, tragic character. Season 5 will be her season to shine.
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.
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
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
Hated her for years, finally started to like her, and she acts completely irrational this season and broke her promise to Jon.
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.
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
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.
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.
A complete ass who slowly became very likeable from the torture he endured. One of the biggest character changes in Game of Thrones.
Theon had the best character development in the whole series
Perhaps not the best in terms of morality, but he's definitely one of the best written characters I've ever read/watched. Also, Alfie Allen is an amazing actor.
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.
King Of The Friendzone, but nevertheless my favourite character on the show. Here's to him surviving until the end!
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.
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
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.
A bit smarter then Tyrion, because he has no cock. He was until season 6 my most interesting character.
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 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.
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.
Love this guy, he's intelligent without being an ass about it and common he took his insulting nickname and made it his banner.
If Ser Davos appears in a scene, you well know that it is a damn good one. Easy Top 5 for me.
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
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
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
Woah, where is the love for Ser Brienne? Too bad they left out most of her story.
She needs to be higher on this list! Awesome character. She could destroy most of the men in the show.
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.
#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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
