My Favorite Game of Thrones Characters

Somebody asked me to name my favorite Game of Thrones character. For most people this might seem like a easy task. But for anybody who watches the show knows that there are quite a few who may come to mind. So I actually wrote down all of my favorites that came to mind and put them in order of who I liked the most. It was about 15 characters all together but I’ll only do my top 10 below…

*WARNING* IF YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT UP TO GAME OF THRONES DO NOT READ. SEASON 5 SPOILERS MAY BE INCLUDE

10. Jon Snow

3870948-jon+snow

Who?

The Bastard son of Eddard (Ned) Stark and currently the commander of the Night’s Watch.

Why?

Other than him being Ned’s oldest living child, and being one of the most attractive, Jon has a morally right attitude in a very unethical world. If that makes sense. He is very much like his father and always seeks to do the right thing. All he ever wanted was to make his father proud.

9. Eddard Stark (Ned)

EddardStark

Who?

The late Lord of the North and Patriarch of the Stark Family (also Jon Snows dad)

Why?

As I mentioned earlier, Ned seeks to always do the right thing. This sometimes gets him in trouble but he doesn’t care. He literally puts his honor over everything and ends up losing his life over it in season one.

8. Arya Stark

Who?

The youngest daughter of Ned and Cat Stark

Why?

Yes I have a lot of the Stark family here and you will see more. There is only one word for Arya: BadAss. She is one of the most determined little girls I have ever seen on television. Although this season I am a little bored with her storyline. Hopefully they do more with her character soon.

7. Khal Drogo

Who?

The king of the horse tribe from season 1 and Daenerys Targaryen’s husband.

Why?

Ummmm do you see that pic!? Hands down the hottest guy on this whole show, although he was only on for one season.

6. Robb Stark

Who?

Ned Stark’s oldest legitimate child. Previous lord of Winterfell (after his dad died)

Why?

I have always loved Robb. Although he made some stupid decisions that eventually lead to his death, he had the same kind heart that the rest of his family had. It took me some time to get over the Red Wedding 😦

 

5. Rhaegar Targaryen

Who?

The mad king’s oldest son and heir to the throne (previously of course)

Why?

Okay so I know this one doesn’t make sense to a lot of people. But after looking at The Game of Thrones backstory YouTube videos (Your welcome) and reading their Wikipedia pages, I realized I had a lot of sympathy for Rhaegar. He did indeed start everything that has led to this show but I believe he did it out of love.

4. Oberyn Martell

Oberyn_Martell_(Season_4,_Episode_06)

Who?

Prince of Dorne. (Guy who was killed by The Mountain last season)

Why?

1. He stood up for Tyrion 2. He challenged The Mountain 3. HE CHALLENGED THE MOUNTAIN

 

3. Daenerys Targaryen

Who?

The only Targaryen left. Mother of Dragons. Khaleesi. Queen of everything

Why?

C’mon. Do you really even need to ask. She literally started out as a sex slave and is now thee most powerful women on this show. That’s even without her dragons, but they definitely do help.

 

2. Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion-Lannister-house-lannister-36908691-3280-4928

Who?

The youngest Lannister, the most disliked (by his family) and he’s a dwarf

Why?

All because of Peter Dinklage. Seriously he is amazing!! But as a character, Tyrion is the smartest underdog here. Whereas Khaleesi might need advisors to help her make decisions as a ruler, I’m sure Tyrion could do it all by himself

And finally……….*drum roll*

 

1. Margaery Tyrell

Margaery-margaery-tyrell-35031149-1700-2550

Who?

Youngest daughter of the Tyrell’s in the Reach. Very rich and powerful family

Why?

She hasn’t been around too long, but so far she is the only character who has managed to become queen without arranging anybody’s death or killing them herself. Joffrey does not count because that was her grandmothers doing. She genuinely cares about people (including the poor) and she even helped Sansa when she was being held captive in Kings Landing. Despite all of this, she still slays Cersei whenever the opportunity presents itself and does it with so much class that I have to rewind it and make sure I heard correct. Yeah she’s definitely the character to watch!
