Top Ten Saddest Game of Thrones Deaths

The Top Ten

1 Ned Stark Ned Stark

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

Well at least he can say he really went for it

His death made me want to cry

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...

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.

Fully sobbed watching this - pjo

This one made me cry today

Hold the door!

He was so pretty :’(

He was my favorite character, I was so upset when he died! RIP Robb Stark :( - invinciblemario99

4 Shireen Baratheon Shireen Baratheon

She was so fkn innocent

This was absolutely heartbreaking - pjo

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

This scene made me cry. I hated Melisandre because of this,even if she sabed jon snow

5 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.

He was Badass and Godlike!

Best character in show

6 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. - Palmeiras

A bride so I give it all

7 Catelyn Stark Catelyn Stark

trash - pjo

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.

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. - Mitchoo22

Actually, not really fake death, but he was resurrected - invinciblemario99

...fake death! I'm so happy too, I love Jon Snow - invinciblemario99

I miss his character so much - pjo

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. - Ekal07

trash - pjo

Her and Jon were so good together.

The Newcomers

? Varys Varys

The Contenders

11 Viserys Targaereyn

Am I the only one who actually likes him?

TRASH - pjo

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

His death was NOT sad!
