Top Ten Saddest Game of Thrones Deaths

The Top Ten

1 Ned Stark

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...

Nice guy

4 Shireen Baratheon

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

Best character in show

So sad and violent... - Tia-Harribel

6 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

7 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.

8 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.
9 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.

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

MOST SADDEST CHARACTER EVER.
Fun fact: Kit got the role because the producers were convinced he looked sad enough to be Jon Snow.

11 Maester Luwin

13 Viserys Targaereyn

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

His death was NOT sad!

NOT SAD

14 Robert Baratheon
15 Grenn
16 Lord Commander Jeor Mormont
17 The Hound

Too soon laugh out loud!

...fake death - invinciblemario99

18 Pypar
19 Myrcella Baratheon

The real life, regular, visible ghost of Myrcella Baratheon herself should've been shown in canon.

Another classical beauty who deserved a better canon fate than death!

20 Eddard II (Baby Eddard)
21 Margaery Tyrell
22 Petyr Baelish Petyr Baelish Petyr Baelish, nicknamed Littlefinger, is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin.

He's the one that kicked off this whole mess, isn't it? From the attempted murder of Bran with Tyrion's Dagger to the entire conflict between the Lannisters and Starks. I'm glad he's finally gone. If he had been able to stay alive, then he probably would've caused a conflict between Sansa, Arya and Jon.
