Well, the epic show Games of Throne has come to an end after a decade, but some characters will always be remembered. Of course, the ending has left so many controversies and disappointments, which is the hot topic these days. In fact, I have also given my opinion on the ending of the season.
The cast of ‘Games of Throne’ is vast. Many have played only at one season whereas some remained from the beginning of the show till the end. Each character has their part to play in the story.
From season 1 to the final season, many have grown into a matured character and turned into the best. Some of them are too good to ignore, and they played a pivotal role in each season.
So, here is a list of my best characters of Games of Throne.
Cersei Lannister is considered as one of the most compelling characters. Her character development and evil personality are hard to ignore.
Although, she is the least likable character among the fans but plays a vital part throughout the series.
Her vengeful temperament, who has her eyes always on the ‘Iron Throne’ and her overprotective motherly instinct that nearly destroyed her. Her controlling behavior and the threat that she always poses for her enemies, everything makes her extremely vulnerable and powerful.
But despite all, her easy death at the ending of the season couldn’t do justice to her fierce character.
Cersei Lannister’s son Joffrey Baratheon is probably the most hated character in Games of Throne. He is one such psychopath character who loves to torture people.
No wonder no one mourn at his death. He was a horror in the show. But he is one of the best characters among all the others for being such malice of a character.
Kit Harrington earned much love and appreciation throughout the world for his character ‘Jon Snow.’ Jon Snow is a character with an exception in the show.
His compassion, bravery, strong moral qualities make him different from the rest. He believes in brotherhood and loves not in power. He is an honorable and a man of his word whom everyone loves. He is the true hero of the story.
Yet again, the show turned the true hero into a murderer of his queen in the end and made him sent to the walls.
I bet he deserves more than just a Knight watch.
Arya Stark’s transformation from a sweet little girl to a badass teen girl is worth watching her in GOT. If you observe in detail, you will notice that her method of killing her enemies is way more brutal than the rest.
Her relationship with the Hound is funny. Her attitude of a warrior is highly impressive. She is a lady with a brain and a motive.
Everybody hates the Lannister family except Tyrion Lannister. He is one of the most favorite characters after Jon Snow in Games of Throne. He has some of the best dialogues in the series.
He is a lazy, shrewd little fellow who is intelligent, kind, and wiser than the rest of the Lannister family members.
His journey from the beginning of the series as a rejected an isolated member of the King’s landing who keeps himself busy with only two things wine and ladies. And his journey as a hand to Queen Daenerys is different.
His character is one of the finest in Games of Thrones.
Sandor Clegane, The Hound, has undergone significant transformation in the series. He has developed as a character, from a rough, vicious bodyguard to a sensible person who has a motif to die for.
A change in heart, a buddy to Arya Stark. We saw his kindness towards Sansa and Arya Stark.
The transformation of the character of Daenerys is slow and steady. We saw her as a slave who is rigid and timid, but soon her rise as the ‘Breaker of Chains’ and ‘Mother of Dragons’ gave her the authority and power over others.
She has earned the love and respect of the fans because she is a queen that we want her to be.
Brienne of Tarth
A lady who maintained her dignity and honor throughout the series. She fought like a true hero. She is a strong lady on the battlefield and remains loyal to her master.
She swore to protect the daughters of Catelyn Stark, and she kept her words in fulfilling her duty.
I definitely can’t ignore Tormund Giantsbane, one of the most fascinating characters in Games of Throne. A fierce fighter who has become a good friend of Jon Snow and has survived all the great battles in the show.
He is crazy; his dialogues are funny and witty. I especially love the way how he teases Brienne of Tarth.
His character is a comic relief in the GOT.
From a terrified little girl to the lady of Winterfell, Sansa’s character has changed the most. She had a long journey overcoming her hurdles.
In the early seasons of the Games of Throne, Sansa used to be one of the most annoying characters, but her role brought some meaning in the later seasons.
Samwell Tarly, a dear friend of Jon Snow, is a beloved character in the Games of Throne. He is neither a fighter nor a sage person, but he loves books.
It was Sam who finds out that only dragon glass can kill the deads. He knows about the stockpile of dragon glass on the island of dragonstone.
Well, many won’t consider Bran Stark as the best character of GOT. But I think Bran is one of the best because of the significance of his role.
Do you remember the little naughty Bran running around in the Winterfell?
In the later seasons, though Bran isn’t a much of a talker, his character is much relatable with the ‘Night of Deads.’
These are a few characters that I find are the best in Games of Throne.
