Top Ten Saddest Game of Thrones Deaths

The Top Ten
1 Ned Stark Ned Stark

Beheaded by order of Joffrey for claiming that Joffrey wasn't Robert's true heir. Robert even asked Ned how he could have made a son like that. Apparently he didn't struggle so his daughters wouldn't suffer. Sansa and Arya were there pleading as well. Hodor's death was really sad as well defending Bran and the others in a noble last stand. When Robb got stabbed it was heartbreaking, and his wife... she was pregnant. Oberyn died nobly, and Jon Snow was stabbed in the heart by his own Steward, a teenager. Just before he stabbed him, Jon was like, 'Please.'

The only one except for Robb and Catelyn Stark at the Red Wedding that I did not expect at all. This was a game breaker making GoT one of my favourite shows

It's Sean Bean, and it's the most humane lord in Westeros... I never thought my heart could ache so much for a fictional character's death...

Its Sean Bean so of course its sad.

2 Robb Stark Robb Stark Robb Stark 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.
3 Hodor Hodor

His entire life from like age 15 revolved around this one moment, this one job, and he did it. He held the door. I actually cried watching this.

He held the door.

Hold the door!

Hold the door.

4 Shireen Baratheon Shireen Baratheon

For me, the only death in Game of Thrones which was hard to watch.

5 Catelyn Stark Catelyn Stark

The entire Red Wedding was shown from her point of view and she saw her son die in front of her...

So sad and brutal. She did everything for her family.

6 Oberyn Martell Oberyn Martell Oberyn Martell 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.

Best character in show

He was Badass and Godlike!

7 Lady Talisa Lady Talisa

For me, her death was the most brutal, painful and beastly to see. She was not my favorite character, but I became fond of her. Regardless if Robb was immature and reckless and has somehow caused this infamous incident, It's as sad and tragic as moments before, she and Robb were dreaming about their son or daughter, so moments later she is brutally stabbed in the womb several times, and bleeds to death before the Robb's eyes. Every knife's stroke she received struck deep my soul. It took me hours to recover from this scene.

But Robb not marrying Frey's daughter was not the real reason for the red wedding. They originally planned to kill him and Catelyn and everyone. They only used that as an excuse.

A bride so I give it all

8 Jon Snow Jon Snow Jon Snow 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.

It's weird but I'm glad he's dead. His story reached an end yet the show must go on. He was my fave character though, RIP Lord Commander.

He's so not dead though

9 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.
10 Ygritte Ygritte Ygritte 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.

I loved her. Her northern accent was the best yet and to add to her fantastic voice. Her phrases such as ''You know nothing Jon Snow'' were on point. I felt like murdering the boy who shot her with an arrow. He spoilt a moment so magical. though' she was ready to kill Jon I don't think she could do it. Her love for him was a soft touch too.

Her and Jon were so good together.

The Contenders
11 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. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

I kinda feel sorry for him. I mean, he must have felt so betrayed when he begged Dany to help him but she said no. Having molten gold poured over your head is extremely painful.

He thought himself to be a king. What a jilarious joke. But from my perspective he could have been a good lord. The lord of idiots.

I don't really watch this show, but I have to say he 100% deserved his demise.

Am I the only one who actually likes him?

12 Maester Luwin

Underrated character. the Stark boys loved him like a grandfather.

13 Rickon Stark
14 The Hound The Hound 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.

The show is over. How is it fake?

Too soon laugh out loud!

15 Rodrik Cassel Rodrik Cassel
16 Robert Baratheon Robert Baratheon
17 Lord Commander Jeor Mormont
18 Barristan Selmy Barristan Selmy

Never seen such disrespect to a character or an actor for that matter. He lived his life as a knight. He should have died a knight.

19 Grenn Grenn
20 Pypar
21 Varys Varys
22 Olenna Tyrell Olenna Tyrell
23 Myrcella Baratheon Myrcella Baratheon
24 Eddard II (Baby Eddard)
25 Margaery Tyrell Margaery Tyrell Margaery Tyrell is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of high fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

Possibly the best player of the game of thrones and was true force to be reckoned with. Such a tragic loss
