Best Game of Thrones Warriors

Includes characters in the TV series and those who fought in Robert's Rebellion

The Top Ten

1 Arthur Dayne

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.

Wish we could see more of his fights on the show.

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. - JamesNicholls

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. - Eorel

2 Barristan Selmy

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 a match for #1, arthur dayne, if dayne did not have his magic sword

Was still a force to be reckoned with in old age. Greatly admired by Jaime Lannister, Robert Baratheon and Eddard Stark. - JamesNicholls

3 Jaime Lannister 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.

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. - JamesNicholls

Only Dayne and Selmy could match him (before his maiming of course) - ethangrossman5

He was simply the best before losing his hand :(

4 Robert Baratheon

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.

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. - JamesNicholls

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

5 Jon Snow Jon Snow King Jon Snow is a major character in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons of Game of Thrones.

He killed lots of people in the battle of the bastard.

Kit Harington does an amazing job with the fight scenes. I could just watch him fighting for a whole episode.

Jon is highly overhyped and a class below than the likes of The mountain, jaimi and of course Oberyn

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.

6 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.

Never lost a fight amongst the Dothraki. Can take on men with swords with his bare hands due to his tremendous agility. - JamesNicholls

He never lost a fight, even against any dothrakis, that are respectable warriors among the seven kingdoms.
(sorry about my english)

7 Oberyn Martell Oberyn Martell

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

8 Syrio Forel

To the person who posted below... WHAT?! HE WAS THE FACELESS MAN?!?!?

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.

A first son of braavos plus he was faceless man plus he only had a wooden sword and taught arya to ignore angry cand blind berserk attacks

9 Rhaegar Targaryen

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. - JamesNicholls

10 Sandor "The Hound" Clegane Sandor 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.

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

The Newcomers

? Hot Pie

Very great warrior.

The Contenders

11 Eddard Stark 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.

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. - JamesNicholls

12 Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane Gregor Ser Gregor Clegane, nicknamed The Mountain, 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.

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.

13 Brandon Stark

Said to be the best Stark swordsman of his generation - JamesNicholls

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

14 Brienne of Tarth 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.

16 Bronn Bronn 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.
