Best Game of Thrones WarriorsIncludes characters in the TV series and those who fought in Robert's Rebellion
Ned Stark, the fan favourite of Season 1 and someone who held his own against Jaime Lannister when he had his right hand, fought Ser Arthur Dayne with five other highborn/noble soldiers (including Lord Howland Reed) and got his arse handed to him on a 'fallen star steel' plate.
Arthur Dayne carried the sword Dawn, forged from a fallen star. Killed the Smiling Knight. Taught Jaime Lannister in the art of sword fighting and Barristan Selmy considered him as his superior.
Arthur was the best, but if we're going by characters who are dead by the time the series starts, then Aemon the Dragonknight is said to be the greatest knight that ever lived.
Wish we could see more of his fights on the show.
If Arthur Dayne was alive, he would be the best. But he isn't so I say Selmy. He mat be dead in the show, but very much alive in the books, if I remember correctly.
Was still a force to be reckoned with in old age. Greatly admired by Jaime Lannister, Robert Baratheon and Eddard Stark.
Was a match for #1, arthur dayne, if dayne did not have his magic sword
He was a painter who only used red. -Jaime Lannister
Arguably the best warrior in Westeros before his hand was chopped off. Cut down loads of knights to get to Robb Stark during the Northern Rebellion. Beat Barristan Selmy in a tourney sometime after Robert's Rebellion.
Only Dayne and Selmy could match him (before his maiming of course)
He was simply the best before losing his hand :(
In a the A Feast For Crows, jamie lannister says there are three men who would best him in their prime; Arthur Dayne, Selmy Barristan and Robert Baratheon. He also goes on to state that there 3 men who are physically stronger than him; Both Clegane brothers and again a young Robert Baratheon
Wielded a war hammer which he could thrust through full armour in one strike in his prime. Killed Rhaegar Targaryen and was a greatly feared monstrous force on the battlefield. Slew all warriors who crossed him during his rebellion.
A lot of the others were great fighters, true. I believe that Syrio would be capable of taking down everyone on this list, but Robert had the true spirit of a warrior. He lusted for fights.
7 Gods! That HAMMER! HE İS THE KİNG BEST WARRİOR BEST LOVER AND MOST CHARİSMATİC CHARACTER İN THE SHOW. HE IS LİKE TONY SOPRANO OF THE GAME OF THRONES UNİVERSE!
One of the bravest fellas, always fighting for the good no matter the cost. This habit alone makes him one of the best fighters/warriors. People seem to neglect the fact that, unlike a lot of others, he is not even in his prime yet but just a boy who is still developing. It's beautiful we are getting to see his journey (so far).
Bonus: Maybe the only person to give the Night King something to be concerned about.
He's a beast in sword combat and has proved himself worthy more than enough times. He has had to fight on the battlefield countless times and has managed to come out alive out of every single battle he's in. He killed a very great amount of soldiers in the "Battle of the bastards" and he has has killed many great fighters in combat including; Styr, Qhorin Halfhand, and Karl Tanner to name a few. He has to be azor ahai and has a major role to play in the wars to come. By the time the show has concluded I highly think he will be the greatest fighter to have ever lived in westeros.
Kit Harington does an amazing job with the fight scenes. I could just watch him fighting for a whole episode.
Learns as the story goes on. Probably unbeatable by anyone now.
He never lost a fight, even against any dothrakis, that are respectable warriors among the seven kingdoms.
(sorry about my english)
Never lost a fight amongst the Dothraki. Can take on men with swords with his bare hands due to his tremendous agility.
Never lost, brutal and efficient.
He toyed Witherspoon the mountain that was not even a fight to him, ir was a One SIDE combat e could have killed Gregor any time if he wanted.
Beated One of the strongest Knight without even swet.
I don't belive that Jaime Robert or John Snow here able to beat the mountain that easly
He must be number 1
The best fighter ever, he toyed with the mountain, we all know he would have been alive if his emotion had not clouded his focus
Took down 4 heavily armoured Goldcloaks with nothing but a nice brown shirt and a wooden training sword. The First Sword of Bravos is not a title to scoff at, and his "death" offscreeen makes me think he'll return one day.
He defeated Three armoured men with a wooden sword. What about that?
He beat three Kingsguard with a stick how much better can you get.
To the person who posted below... WHAT?! HE WAS THE FACELESS MAN?!?!?
Described as a good but not outstanding fighter by Barristan Selmy and said to be Robert's greatest victory during his rebellion, good enough to injure Robert during the fight.
Snow, and Ned are above this monster? Snow and Ned are both above average fighters, but neither are as well known for being fighters as well as the hound. The hound should be in the top 5
With the help of Howland Reed, Ned killed the legendary warrior Arthur Dayne. In the T.V. series Ned pretty much equalled Jaime in sword fighting skills. Killed other good fighters during Robert's Rebellion.
Thing is, he's actually not that good of a swordsman. The only reason he wins is because of his physical size, toughness and strength. If he was the same as his brother or any other normal soldier, he would be cut up into mince meat within a few minutes.
Biggest and strongest warrior in world of ice and fire.
Said to be the best Stark swordsman of his generation
Every time he's on screen I want to pull my hair out
Love to see Brandon Stark vs The Mountain
Would killed Rheagar Targaryen easily
Tormund should be way higher here
Slave lenin slava stalin
Tormund the Brienne Baller
Vote Tormund Giantsbane
Mead-King of Ruddy Hall
Breaker of Ice
Husband to Bears
Speaker to Gods
Father of Hosts
Are kidding me?! Why is the person who killed the night king down here?
She deserves better than 15th place! SHE KILLED THE FROZEN GUY. FOR ALL JON SNOW KNOWS, HE YELLED AT A DRAGON AND IT BROKE. ARYA STARK KILLED THE WHITE WALKER KING! PUT HER IN 1ST PLACE!
Def should be higher
Most underrated fighter
He should be in top 5.
He once saw a knight kill another knight in flea bottom. He likes armor. What more do you need?
Very great warrior.
Did you all forget this champion knight here? He have beaten once Jamie Lannister in a sword sparring in the book. One of westeros’ finest knights and swordsmen. The only enemy he has not beaten yet is the friendzone.
