Characters in the Game of Thrones are more powerful and sharp than one can imagine. Creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss missed the mark in the later seasons by not realising that the show’s success rests on the strength of its characters. Yes, dragons are here! Strange magics are at work! There’s a lot of gore and scumbags brandishing massive blades.
However, the uniqueness of this series lies in the fascinating characters that populate this fantastical world. The untimely demise of Ned Stark, the metamorphosis of Jaime Lannister, and the indelible evil of Joffrey Baratheon are all essential to the success of Game of Thrones. These individuals defy classification and challenge our conventional notions of good and evil. The journeys they have taken through Westeros are shocking, painful, and poetic all at once.
The Biggest Battle in TV History could be exciting, but it can’t compare to the feeling these characters evoke. Our shared humanity is best represented there.
Here is a list of the most famous characters of the show:
1. Tyrion Lannister – Astute
Tyrion Lannister, the youngest of the three Lannister brothers, is the epitome of wit. The imp’s mouth is his greatest weapon, according to fans. Innumerable times, he has swung the situation in his favour with just a few choice words. The elephant would reign supreme in the animal kingdom if size alone determined dominance. Therefore, I will back the young lion in his quest for the monarchy.
Warning: if you don’t have any burn ointment on hand, you should probably avoid a verbal confrontation with the man.
2. Arya Stark – Retribution
Arya Stark of Winterfell is the name of the young lady in question. For many, the final appearance of one of the Stark girls prompted a physical reaction. Arya has matured from a sassy little tomboy into a fierce warrior bent on revenge. To send a message and hint that she has a full plate this season, she opened the season in grand fashion by beginning to cross off names from her kill list. Ned’s little girl is an inspiration.
3. Jon Snow – Exemplar
After beginning his Night’s Watch career as a steward, Jon had overcome every obstacle, taken every blow, and given his life in order to rise to the position of Lord Commander. Because he is a true representation of his father’s values, he has won over the hearts of millions of fans. When he reconciles the men of the wall with the wildlings and the kings and forgives the traitors, we are reminded of the honourable Ned Stark, and a wave of nostalgia washes over us. The Lone Wolf would gladly sacrifice himself to save his pack.
Jon Snow was the kind of king the North desperately needed, rather than the kind it deserved.
4. Daenerys Targaryen – Liberator
Her own brother, in pursuit of political gain, enslaved the Mother of Dragons. Daenerys Stormborn went through many transformations from naive princess to Khaleesi to Mother of Dragons to Saviour of the Masses. Danny is a memorable character because she becomes her own army by amassing a huge fleet of ships and by forging alliances with other powerful figures. The Targaryen has the love and support of the people behind her, as well as the power of three formidable dragons, and she is on her way to reclaiming the throne.
In the person of Daenerys Targaryen, we are all reminded that even the smallest of packages can contain enormous amounts of explosive power.
5. Sansa Stark – Metamorphosis
Sansa Stark has persevered. She is the princess with the thorny crown, surrounded by evil. You simply cannot see Sansa without tears in her eyes in the first several seasons. You can’t really hold the girl responsible because she lost her family, married monsters (with the exception of Tyrion) lived with those who planned her demise and ruined her hometown and family. Sansa has changed into a lady at this point, trading in her tears for vengeance and a queenly resolve, and she has assisted her brother in regaining Winterfell.
6. Cersei Lannister – Domineering
Cersei Lannister, the Queen of Westeros, embodies the perilous trinity of beauty, power, and ambition. For the sole purpose of making sure she killed a few foes, she managed to blow up the most revered location in King’s Landing and murder thousands of residents. Cersei has become colder than ever after losing her children to death. Cersei is preparing to fight enemies coming at her from all directions since she has the Mountain on her side and is motivated by resentment and desire for revenge.
7. Hodor: Generous
Hold the door, the words that altered how we perceived the Winterfell Giant. Who would have guessed that the unfortunate man had a horrible background that altered his life forever? Despite the fact that the time traveller had messed up his youth, Wylie (Hodor) was ready to give his life—which he eventually did—for his young master. We did cry a little bit when we saw the scene.
Hodor was a forgotten hero who went unnoticed.
8. Jaime Lannister – Dedicated
As Tywin Lannister’s treasured possession, Jaime was a source of great pride for him. Tywin invested a lot of time and thought into the development of the Casterly Rocks heir’s combat skills and intellect, and it paid off. Many characters in the series boast about the Lannister hottie’s abilities. Jaime would do everything for his love, from shoving a child out a window to fighting in wars. Over time, he transformed from a haughty aristocrat into a brave warrior with a cause.
Jaime Lannister possesses both a lion’s pride and a doe’s gentle nature.
9. Joffrey Baratheon – Reprehensible
Joffrey is, without a doubt, the most despised character in the show. From the time he was an ill-mannered young prince, the late king was universally reviled. In a series of filthy manoeuvres, the egotism finally succeeded in making the audience wish for his demise. I would use a glass of water to douse the flames on Joffrey’s shoe.
10. Petyr Baelish – Dishonest
Ignore Littlefinger (his infamous alias). He spoke out of his own! Petyr Baelish, the notorious villain, is said to be as crafty as a fox. Petyr had a successful hand, from the killings of Ned Stark and Lysa Arryn to the imprisonment of Tyrion. A guy whose speech is as keen as a blade and whose influence is far-reaching is the master of coin.
Littlefinger is a powerful persona that prefers to remain underground.
