Best Game of Thrones Series CharactersBimmyJim
The Top Ten
You can't spell pimp without imp
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
Never been a more balanced and perfect character buildup in television history.V 138 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)
Jon snow is very powerful, magical, clever and amazing, he is my hero
Top 10 characters list without Ramsay I am really shockedV 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
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!
(To Arya Stark) You're the best!V 106 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.
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
I have fixed feelings about Dany. She is a great character with some of the most badass and iconic moments of the series. But she is also quite entitled and I disagree with many of her actions. She is lucky she has such good advisors or she would have lost long ago. Plus she relies too much on her dragons or her resistance to fire to impress people, more than actual merits. However, I think we can all agree that the show would not be nearly as good and badass without Khaleesi and her dragons. - lilyflower
She has dragons, they don't, enough said - GamingGodPrimeV 71 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.
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
I vote for him because I think he deserves a higher spot too. There is good and evil in this character which makes him interesting.
A very complex character. Even more so than Tyrion I'd say. Wheras most characters are displayed as either 'good' or 'bad' (Tyrion the likeable one who's always trying to do good is one dimensional in that regard. Cersei always choosing her children above all and doing so much wrong, which makes her being bad is one dimensional in that regard. Joffrey a freak of nature also one dimensional etc).
He's someone who had to make extreme decision between 'right' and 'wrong'. At first hand he just seemed a crazy brute who just did anything for his family and his true love Cersei. But later on it arises that he actually wasn't that bad at all. He shows love and mercy for his little brother, he saved all the people of Kingslanding from dying by the Mad King by the decision to kill him, which actually shows strength and character in him and his good nature.
But on the other hand he's can be crazy and just kills his own cousin without remorse if needed. Even though he's not well lettered, ...more
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.
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.

You probably don't know his father but bronn himself is unforgettable.
Bronn is dangerous and his black humor I just love it
Bronn is who most men would love to be.

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.

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
All he knew was pain, I wanted a happy ending for him. I just feel like there was so much more that we could've seen of him.V 26 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.
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.
Easily the most evil character. Joffery was just a spoilt brat... Could never trust this bitch... EvilV 32 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! "
Okay the hound was underrated. He was awesome, dutiful, and hated Joffrey. What else do you want?
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.
I'm a man who looks at a character traits of a character to judge them, but the Hound is an exception. He is funny, badass, and has a redemption arc possibly better than Jaime's. Plus he's got an interesting backstory, and who doesn't wanna see him defeat his brother?V 35 Comments
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 smart beautiful and good...what more van I say?
Intelligent, beautiful and rich, she is just the queenV 13 Comments
Brilliant strategist, was actually capable of running the kingdom properly, ruthless but not unnecessarily cruel
Not such a bad guy after all. Kind of like King Lear though - couldn't differentiate between being a king and a father, so became king to his children. Fatal flaw
A bad guy but still epic. He's even cooler in the books.
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.V 9 Comments
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
This Northern wolf princess, Sansa Stark of Winter-fell and that English white princess, Elizabeth of York (The White Princess) are very similar to each other because they're equally both the eldest daughters to two powerful families, their marriages would determine who would rule their kingdoms, they were the keys to the North and England after their brothers' deaths, trained to be proper ladies and beautiful.
All of her pretty, beautiful, lovely dresses are much interesting to look at all; including her pale blue dragonfly motif embroidered cloth, ivory silk inlays, grey dress, the skirt on both sides of ivory silk lining, leafy vine motif embroidery, molding overlays roses around the neckline, brown brocade dress from The Battle of Blackwater Bay Scene and Northern style, blue dress, with knotty collar, aren't they?
I'm glad she survived but I'm still not happy with the fact that her pet dire-wolf didn't get to live nor survive longer too at all.V 54 Comments
A man does not know what to write about him
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. - Caleb9000
A man is a manV 14 Comments
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
Vote for him so he can get closer to khaleesi on the list.
King Of The Friendzone, but nevertheless my favourite character on the show. Here's to him surviving until the end!
Iain glen. that's whyV 15 Comments
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.
What a personality this man had. the coolest character in Game of Thrones. No one matches him in attitude. A character that literally enjoys life. Both bold & coolV 28 Comments
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
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.
She is the most loyal and honorable character on the show.V 12 Comments
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.
How is he not everyones favourite?!V 5 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
Ygritte: Is that a palace?
Jon Snow:... It's a windmill
Jon Snow: I'd like to see you in a silk dress

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!
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.
Hold the door! Bran may just be the most powerful character now.
From the beginning, Bran was destined to fall-the crippling of one of the Starks was more or less the first time something terrible happened to the family onscreen in this show. After being thrown from the broken tower in season one, his journey has been both intriguing and suspenseful. While many dislike Bran because of the amount of characters that have died to protect him, I feel that he will be the largest influence on the Game of Thrones world, with his greensight powers changing everything.V 10 Comments
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
He is an Awesome character. He could have been on a much higher spot if the writers would have given him a timely return. He is probably still rowing.
In the start of series, I thought he'd become someone big. He had a kind of spark. He should have been one of the main characters who could turn the story upside down. But the writers and creators didn't do justice with this character. :'( :'(
Still waiting for your return Gendry!
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 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.
What is she doing so high on this list?! She was a little bitch who only took advantage of tyrion and others through sex. She pretended to love tyrion on top of that! - Penpineappleapplepen
He knows what you do, what you think and what you eat. The master of whispers influences many incidents on GoT
Sneaky Bald Guy, what else.
He know everyone and everything. He worked up from nothing, and he's not a bad person.
Varys isn't a spider. I like the calm, reasonable demeanor and the lack of desire to backstab anyone for personal gain.V 6 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.
Lived his life to hold the door could he be more heroic?V 6 Comments
The best thing about him was his death, he finally got his golden crown.
"A crown of gold! "
A complete ass who slowly became very likeable from the torture he endured. One of the biggest character changes in Game of Thrones.
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.
Wait, how is Theon not in the top ten? He's so awesome in the first 3 seasons! Sure he gets a little weak after all of the torture he endures, but he's still cool - invinciblemario99
3rd favourite character to arya and Sansa. I hated him at first but after he was tortured by Ramsay and escaped with Sansa he became much better. He is awesome in season 7! I like how he has a lot of flaws but is trying to make up for what he did.V 8 Comments
Underrated but he was powerful & indelible which is why people are still talking about him. Always memorable.
Nothing to say, he's known as the greatest warrior of all of game of thrones, that just proves it all
He is by far the most interesting character. Strong and still loving. Best ever
Him killing Viserys has to be one of the best kills of the entire series. - Kfox101V 9 Comments
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
What a personality great warrior crazy looks
Should definitely check the top ten
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.
I Wish this old lady been my grandmother

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?
Hottest character everV 5 Comments
He handled as well his speech as his spear!
He's the bomb
Poor tommen. He try hard to not be joffrey and stay good king. He is only 9.
Ho hum. When will he be murdered? Save some tape and do it quickly.
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.
Because every good medieval fantasy needs a character called Sam!V 1 Comment
Varys is witty, intellectual, eloquent and intelligent. What's not to like about him?
Always cool headed and calculating. Varys is the master of smooth stealth.
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.
He died too early.
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
She is fearless,great concern about her children,a full of frolisome moments with her.V 5 Comments
Osha is a loyal and friendly wildling for House Stark. I hate Ramsey for killing her -.-
Loyal, brave and smarter than she looked
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.V 3 Comments
Ghost for the win!
I would choose a direwolf over a dragon any day! The direwolves were simply adorable! - Penpineappleapplepen
Best creatures in the show.
Dragons can be a bit much
One hell of an awesome dragon
"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.
This dude is really likeable, "what do we say to god death? Not today."
This guy is a total badass. He manages to take out five soldiers with a wooden sword, and gets killed protecting Arya. I felt to bad when he died he was the coolest character in the whole series
If he had a sword on him, simply wouldn't have died
The best accent at the throne..love his time with arya...god of dead...don't die
