22 Davos Seaworth (The Onion Knight)

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.

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

Nobody should forget his joke about Gendry and his fermented crab that will put a hole in your chainmails. - joshsanz

23 Theon Greyjoy

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

One of the most complex and well constructed characters of the show

24 Bran Stark

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.

Up there with one of my favourite characters in the show. After jon his story was my favourite in season 6

25 Lord Varys (The Spider)

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.

26 Gendry Gendry

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!

27 Shae

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

28 Melisandre (The Red Priestess)

Most misunderstood. She is definitely one of the most interesting and mysterious characters. I think she gets too much hate for being a radical

Am I the only one who is kind of appalled by Melisandre because she was a seductive witch?

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.

Hottest character ever

29 Hodor

I think I speak for everyone when I say, "HODOR! " - Pluma

Definitely most peaceful, selfless and innocent character in this Game and that all without the need to say more than one word - HODOR.

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!

Lived his life to hold the door could he be more heroic?

30 Viserys Targaryen Viserys Targaryen Viserys Targaryen is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R.

The best thing about him was his death, he finally got his golden crown.

"A crown of gold! "


31 Khal Drogo Khal Drogo Khal Drogo is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Marton.

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. - Kfox101

32 Grand Maester Pycelle Grand Maester Pycelle

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

33 Olenna Tyrell

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

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.

34 Daario Naharis Daario Naharis Daario Naharis 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.

What a personality great warrior crazy looks

Should definitely check the top ten

35 Oberyn Martell Oberyn Martell

He handled as well his speech as his spear!

He's the bomb

36 Ramsay Bolton 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.

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.

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. - DragonHarrier

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.

Best psycho ever

37 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.

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!

38 Tommen

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.

39 Varys (The Spider)

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.

40 Robert Baratheon

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.
