Game of Thrones, despite its poorly reviewed ending, is one of the best shows of all time. Arguably, the best of all time. What made GOT so successful wasn’t just the writing and acting, it was how the characters were portrayed. Personally, I wouldn’t count on Kit Harrington winning an Oscar anytime soon. However, Jon Snow is one of the most popular characters in television history. We loved characters deeply and mourned their loss when they were killed because let’s face it, GOT killed everybody. As much as we loved some characters, there were many we hated. Below are worst characters that haunted us in GOT.
10. Viserys Targaryen
You may have to rewind back to 2010 to recall the misery this character brought to the big screen. Pompous, entitled and down right annoying. The best thing he ever did for this show was provide it’s first gruesome death. No one misses this piece of shit.
This witch is a bitch. Responsible for burning Shireen, (Stanis’s young daughter we all loved) she lands at number 9 on this list. The night is dark and full of terrors was her game. She was annoying, yet, weirdly hot. That was until, she morphed into an old lady naked. At the end, she somewhat redeemed herself in the long night, yet, the deeds of her past still make her a piece of water trash.
8. Little Finger
Before there was politics, Peter Baelish existed. Cunning, deceitful and cleaver, Little Finger was able to work his way close to the top of the ladder. He is arguably responsible for the start of the great war. In the end, he was beat at his own game and had his throat sliced. You could argue he should be higher on this list, but he was such an entertaining character and brought a dynamic to the screen every episode. Chaos is a ladder.
7. The High Sparrow
Nobody liked this character. He was annoying, boring and his storyline dragged out for way too long. With the exception of locking up Cersi, he accomplished nothing in terms of the long cod in GOT. I was happy when he was burned by wildfire and I don’t care if that makes me a monster.
6. The Mountain
Big, mean and angry. Sounds like my my daily digestive system. The Mountain is one of the most vile characters in the history of television. Responsible for murdering children, innocent people and one of the show’s favorite characters, the Viper. That death scene was the most gruesome thing I have been a part of.
5. Walder Frey
You know that old creepy guy in your fraternity that refuses to graduate and hits on the young freshman daily? This guy existed even in GOT time era. This piece of shit orchestrated the “Red Wedding” which almost made me stop watching this show. My heart was ripped from my body and plunged into a bucket of boiling tears.
4. Euron GreyJoy
The dreadful pirate of the Iron Islands was introduced into our lives in season 5, as Theon’s long lost uncle who steals the salt crown of the Iron Islands. Despite being a horrible person, murdering his own brother, innocent people and anyone else in his way….. he did provide some comedic relief throughout his three seasons. He had a pretty dope set of handlebars. What is dead may never die.
3. Cersi Lanister
At the end of the day, she is probably the most satanic and evil character throughout the show. Incest, mass murder and treason are just a few of the things she is known for. The only reason she doesn’t land at number one on this list is because despite how horrendous she may be, she was a dynamic character who was played flawlessly by Lena Headey. Cersi was one of the few characters who made it through all 8 seasons, so you have to have some sort of attachment to her as a character. She deserved a way more gruesome death, however. Long may she reign.
2. Ramsey Bolton
Even if you don’t watch this show, you’ve seen this GIF above. The most satanic character to waltz through GOT. He got off Theon’s legendary penis, flayed men alive, killed his own dad and raped Sansa. An all around piece of shit. The only reason he doesn’t land at number 1 is because he was saved by the actor’s portrayal of this sick freak. In the end he was eaten by his own dogs. Big dogs got to eat.
- Joffrey Baratheon
At number one, we have Joffrey the pompous kid king. From the start of the show, HBO was quick to let you know this is not a character you would be rooting for. He lands at number one because he is straight up annoying and reminds me of the kid who bragged about his daddy owning a car dealership he would one day inherit. The whole world cheered when he choked on some poison.
Before anyone asks, the knight King didn’t make this list because he was a badass. Deal with it.
