Worst Game of Thrones Characters

What are worst Game of Thrones characters ever? Either in terms of how annoying they are, or how evil they are.

The Top Ten

1 Joffrey Baratheon Joffrey Baratheon

There are some villains that are interesting and everyone loves them but Joffrey is one of those villains that everyone hates for obvious reasons. Because he is an evil stuck-up brat.

Joffrey is undoubtedly a detestable character, but an excellent villain. We know a villain is good when we love hating him. The actor who played him was excellent, because from start to finish, I hated Joffrey. - Palmeiras

His actor does an amazing job! He is such a well done character, I think I have never hated a character like I hated this guy

A good character is someone we can take interest in, or feel something for them. A great villain can easily make us detest them for proper reasons. Joffrey was a great villain and a good character for what he was. - MKBeast

2 Ramsay Bolton Ramsay Bolton Ramsay Bolton, also known as Ramsay Snow, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels.

Known for the gruesome things he loves doing to his victims, he certainly is evil. - Pluma

I love the fact that he's so cute in appearance, but so evil and malevolent in his deeds. The first time I saw him, he really deceived me with his cute aura. - Palmeiras

In my opinion he is an awesome addition he just adds so much to the books/series. yes he is evil and insane but imagine how flat some of the scenes would be without him. in the series he's just mental which makes him so much of a good, but bad, addition.

He ate someones dick. Enough said - JESUSISKING

3 Daenerys Targaryen Daenerys Targaryen Daenerys Targaryen is a fictional character in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, as well as the television adaptation.

She has no idea what she is doing, and yet holds a lot of power. She also kills a lot of people. - Pluma

She doesn't, "hold all the power." Are you kidding me? Daenerys has a few loyal people who either advise or support her, and that's because Daenerys rightfully earns all the supporters she has. And if Dany does hold all the power, that is quite an admirable thing considering she came from absolutely nothing and became who she is today by leading with kindness, a good moral sense of justice, and a smart head on her shoulders. Daenerys might have started out naive to what she was doing, but she quickly learned and is now one of the smarter players in the game. And so what if she kills people? She has never killed anyone who didn't deserve it. The only people are traitors and men who take innocent people captive as slaves and treat them like dirt. Daenerys was completely in the right every time. - EllaInTheRankings

I stopped rooting for her after the first season. She hasn't really done anything good except freeing the slaves, but even that was only good for the slaves. For everyone else she pretty much wrecked the economy of Slaver's Bay. She stole the unsullied army to make them fight in a war they don't really believe in. She acts super entitled all the time, even though she has made virtually no good decisions on her own and has had everything handed to her. She knows nothing of politics in westeros and thinks she can just barge in and say "I have dragons, now give me the throne" even though the Targaryen dynasty officially ended so there are many who have far more legitimate claims to the throne than she does. Hell, even Gendry has a better claim. All in all, just a spoiled brat that everyone loves for some reason. - ColdTurkey

Aside from the horrible wooden acting from Emilia Clarke, the character is the most Disney princess, cotton candy, chocolate bunny, phony character in the show and brings the entire series down a few levels. When she's upset she just whines like a teenager and (same goes for Sansa) never sounds like an adult. She tries way too hard and worsens an already cheesy character with the cheesiest lines. Good for a prepubescent maybe but this show shouldn't pander to tweeny boppers.

She's the worst.

4 Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish

That's kind of strange, but I actually liked him...

The greatest player of the game. He took major part in every big event in the show, nothing would have happened without him. The most dangerous, sure, but not the worst. - Agerones

The most frightening of them all, clever, evil, with no morals...

Petyr was in my opinion not one of the worst characters.

5 Cersei Lannister Cersei Lannister Cersei Lannister is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She 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.

Probably one of the most useless, one dimensional characters in the show that's just their for the "Oh my gosh, that's so bad," aspect. I'm astounded that someone says that she's well-written, that's hogwash. Her continued existence in the show makes her all the more irrelevant, and I find it ironic that the whole point shows hidden message of, "Everyone can die" with this character (along with others) is still in existence. They make it seem like she's so smart when everything she does is so stupid and the consequences are predictable. I understand that there are other "evil" characters like Ramsay Bolton and Petyr Baelish, but at least there isn't a massive failure of an attempt to flesh them out and give them some kind of meaning to why their in the show.

She's evil but at least she's well written with more than one dimension. Unlike Daenerys, who is just flat.

She slept with her brother and caused a child to be paralysed. - JESUSISKING

I am WAITING for this bitch to die and I hope it's in the most horrible way possible

6 Walder Frey Walder Frey

He'll ruin your wedding... - Pluma

He killed so many people! He should be at least number 5!

He killed the one and only king Robb Stark.

He's the real son of a bitch. He's so brilliantly played by David Bradley that I'll never again be able to look at Argus Filch in an HP movies the same way. I'll always remember the red wedding. - Palmeiras

7 Tommen Baratheon

- Manipulative religious fanatic brad. Wears a crown but has no guts at all. Not able to defend his wife, nor his mother, but calling himself protector of the realm... Joining forces with the very same old whit that diminished his credibility and power, as much as his queen and queen mother. Tommen is a little boy, full of fear of the grown ups, and unable to get some courage.. Hope Margaery strucks him with a knife on the back in his sleep.

He's useless, that's all!

He's a winny bitch, puppet king and really useless! The world is a lot more better without him!

8 Stannis Baratheon Stannis Baratheon Stannis Baratheon is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R.

I don't get why Stannis get's so much hate. He's the most misunderstood character on the show, and almost everything he does is for what he believes is the greater good.

He's nitpicky and overly obsessed with birthrights. Also, easily seduced by Melisandre - Pluma

He is much better in the books :/

Stanislaus is a mean horrible stag faced bastard who deserves to die a horrible death! I eat Stannis for breakfast

9 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.

Big, evil, and brutish: there is nothing friendly about this character. - Pluma

There's nothing more to say about this character than "HULK SMASH! "

Killing Oberon aside, there's nothing interesting about this meathead. There's not one character trait he has outside of his stature and brutality. - MKBeast

He killed Oberyn!

10 Sansa Stark Sansa Stark Sansa Stark is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She is a prominent character in Martin's award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Its really her fandom that gives me a bad taste in my mouth, what makes her a good character in the later books is that she was a horrible one in the first book, and they like to deny it, excuse it, and overall refuse to see her faults.. One of the things that fascinates me about her is that she is not an angel, almost everything she does is very self serving (good on her! ) and they refuse to see that, which makes anything I read about her disgusting.. - NeddaSai

She's not too bad in the books but she's absolutely unbearable in the show. I think it's a combination of the character and the actress who plays her.

I cannot stand sansa. I understand her plight, and feel for her. She is simply trying to make it by until she can finally catch a break. But her personality is ATROCIOUS. She is the epitome of a condescending brat; she'd fit into a sorority quite well! Even in season 5, when you think she would have learned her place, she obviously thinks herself better than Myranda and the Lady who brings her Brienne's message. Horrible as this may be, I have actually grown to like Peter Baelysh because of his manipulation of Sansa.

Thinking that life is sunshine and rainbows? COME ON WE WENT THROUGH THIS IN ZOOTOPIA!

? Ellaria Sand

Just a complete waste of a potentially good character. - MKBeast

The Contenders

11 Jaqen H'gar

He needs to pay for blinding arya!

He'll probably give her sight again. I read a little bit on the website and it said that it is a test to see if she can use her other senses to carry out assassinations. - Caleb9000

12 Theon Greyjoy

Is it weird that I really liked him until his character transformed into Reek? - invinciblemario99

Pathetic and traitorous, Theon causes a lot of grief throughout the series, and has few redeeming qualities. - Pluma

Worst character on GOT

Coward, Coward, Coward!

13 Renly Baratheon
14 Talisa Stark

Boring, boring, a stereotype, a cliche, and also boring.

Annoying trope

Classic Mary Sue. Entitled, pretentious, and boring. Just really really annoying. At some points I wanted her death more than Joffery. The idiot ruined Robb.

It's funny cause there isn't a character in the books by the name Talisa stark. In the books Robb marries a girl called Jeyne Westerling after he takes the crag I think. (they were Lannister Bannermen). But Robb had it coming and wasn't a very strong character anyway. - 12cc

15 Melisandre

I just can't stand that woman

I love how people are hating her for how Stannis turned out.

She basically ruins everything good about Stannis. - Pluma

Stannis is my favourite character and she keeps ruining him

16 Brand Stark

His character is just really boring all he does is dream and wake up

2% of people voted for a misspelling of bran stark

Brand? BRAND?

17 Tyrion Lannister Tyrion Lannister Tyrion Lannister is a fictional character in A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

Can't be considered the worst by any means. - Pluma

Wait he shouldn't even be on this list.

Why is he on this list?

I canĀ't stand him.
He betrayed his family and he is willing to let them get killed. And for what?! In the end Tywin was right about him.
I know, I know Daddy was very mean too him and his big bad sister too but his aunt, his uncels, his brother Jaime basically every other Lannister liked him and treated him with respect (if you donĀ't believe me - read the damn books) and he repay them by working against them.
I hope that he will find a bloody death in the end.

18 Olenna Martell

There's not even such character... Apparently 2% of voters have absolutely no idea who they vote for.

It's Olenna Tyrell... - invinciblemario99

Martell? It's Olenna Tyrell not Martell. - 12cc

19 Rickon Stark

Annoying and weak, there never was a more useless character in the history of television. Topping that with terrible acting skills.

Most annoying character

Good bye stark heir...dead

20 Allister Thorne

I'm glad he remained for the time he did, and his (spoilers) death was fitting and wrapped his story up neatly. That said, this guy was antagonizing Jon well before he even knew the guy and was an all around pain to look upon.
