Top 50 Best Game of Thrones Characters (2016 edition)

Another year passed by and so did the sixth season of Game of Thrones. What a lovely season it was! The Starks took back Winterfell and Lady Sansa got justice for what was done to her. Arya got to cross off another name from her list and Daenerys’s wish finally came true. Unfortunately, there were also a lot of tragic events. We got to know the real meaning behind Hodor’s hodoring and the tragic fate of this hero; We lost our favorite Queen, Queen Margaery Tyrell and her father (Mace) and brother (Loras). Thank the gods that Jon was brought back to life this year! Let’s not lose any more time. We are going to count down this year’s 50 best characters from Game of Thrones.  But first, let’s take a look at last year’s top 5 characters again! Will Tyrion Lannister remain at the top?

5. Ned Stark

4. Jaime Lannister

3. Arya Stark

2. Jon Snow

1. Tyrion Lannister

Top 50-41 of 2016

Mountain.001.jpegThe Mountain loses 2 places this year! Ser Gregor Clegane has not been so fortunate in Game of Thrones throughout all seasons. In the season finale of season 6, we found out what Qyburn has done to him. He looked awful, but do we really care about this guy in the end? I mean, he’s the worst person in Westeros, right? And right now, he’s having a great time torturing Septa Unella. Well, you know, what goes around comes around. Serves you right, Frankenmountain. 

Yara Greyjoy.001.jpegFinally, she makes this list! Yara Greyjoy returned in season 6 with full vengeance. I have to admit that Yara had a weaker part to play in season 3 and 4, but she managed to become one of my favourite characters in season 6. Yara Greyjoy made her brother find himself again and traveled together to Queen Daenerys Targaryen with him. She could even intimidate the Mother of Dragons. Yara is a badass character and I love to see more scenes of her with Dany. Welcome in our list, miss Greyjoy. 

Gendry.001.jpegOur friendly Gendry isn’t lucky this year. He hasn’t shown up in more than three years and we can only guess about his whereabouts. Some think he might still be rowing. Well, when he returns he will make up for a very muscular guy. This blacksmith has everything: the looks, the brains, and the right family name. Except, he’s a bastard. Let’s hope he’ll make a wonderful return one day and that he’ll be legitimized. Hopefully, he doesn’t bump into Melisandre again. Have fun rowin’, Gendry. But don’t forget to be around in the top 50 of next year! 

Mance Rayder.001.jpegThis is a surprise! Welcome, Mance Rayder. Before we got to know you better, you were taken away from us. But you weren’t a bad guy at all. Mance actually cared for the people that lived beyond the Wall and wanted to save them. He even sacrificed his own life to remain loyal to his people. I am glad that he’s part of our list. Long live the king-beyond-the-wall! Well done, Rayder! 

Wun Wun.001.jpeg

It looks like Mance Rayder took one of our favorite giants to the list. Here’s Wun Wun! We met this awesome giant in Hardhome where he survived the attack of the Night King and his army of the undead. Wun Wun was one of the first to make an alliance with Jon Snow in order to survive in the North. He fought for Snow and made sure the Starks got their home back. He even sacrificed himself. We will never forget this noble act Wun Wun. Welcome at #46! 

Meera Reed.001.jpegMuch to my surprise, she didn’t make last year’s top 50. Perhaps that was because of her one-year break during season 5. This year she returned and kicked some ass. Meera was one of the few to kill a White Walker in season 6 and she made sure Bran could escape safely during the attack of the Night King. Meera also was the one to shout the infamous sentence ‘Hold the Door’ to Hodor, which led to his sacrifice. Meera was always there to protect her brother Jojen and she’s now doing the same for Bran. This girl really deserves a spot in our list. 

Beric Dondarrion.001.jpegAnother newcomer: Beric Dondarrion. And his return to season 6 might contribute to the fact that he finally made this list. Lord Beric has been a very lucky guy, being brought back multiple times. Yet, he doesn’t consider himself very lucky. Beric has always been on Thoros’s side and this season he and Thoros decided to let in The Hound in their group. Who has ever thought the three would work together in the end. I cannot wait to see the threesome in action. Welcome in our top 50, Beric. 

Night King.001.jpegSlowly but surely this creepy man is gaining more power in Westeros and over this list. He goes forward 7 pieces in the Game of Characters. This season, we learned more about the Nigh King’s background. He was an actual human created by Leaf, a Child of the Forest, in order to protect themselves against the human kind. Their plan backfired and the Children of the Forest got extinct by the hands of the White Walkers. The Night King can also be blamed for the deaths of thousands of people and animals, including ‘Hodor’, ‘Summer’ and the ‘Three-Eyed Raven’. Where will he end next year? This creep gets scarier every season. 

Robert.001.jpeg

Our good old King Robert is still on the list. But time didn’t treat him well, though. Robert loved drinking, whoring and of course eating. This Baratheon king got the game all started when he asked Ned to become the Hand of the King. Poor King Robert never realized that he didn’t have any children with Cersei, in the end. Well, he did have a lot of bastards! You might be gone for 6 years now but you are still in our hearts. 

Euron.001.jpeg

He didn’t have a lot of screen time in season 6 but he had one hell of an introduction last season! Euron Greyjoy traveled around the world and made his way back to Pyke. He claimed the Salt Throne and won but there’s still a problem he needs to take care of: Yara and Theon Greyjoy. We saw Yara earlier in this list, I suspect Theon to be a lot higher. Nice entry Euron and good luck with your thousand fleets! 

Top 40-31 of 2016

Roose.001.jpegAnother great character that we lost in season 6: Roose Bolton. Roose Bolton reminded us of Lord Tywin Lannister. He was cunning and mysterious, and we’ll never forgive him for betraying the Starks but he wasn’t the worst villain in the end. His bastard was. We’ll never find out if Roose underestimated Ramsay or if he was planning to get rid of him all along. We’ll surely miss this great character, portrayed by. This year, Roose remarkably loses 13 places and ends at #40. 

Ygritte.001.jpegBIGGEST LOSER OF 2016 ‘You know nothing, voters!’ Ygritte loses a huge amount of places (14!) this year. This girl, who was kissed by fire, was Jon’s first and only love. Ygritte never minced her words and genuinely loved Jon Snow, which is rare in the TV-series. Our hearts broke when Ygritte was killed by Olly a few moments after she was reunited with the love of her life. Well, it was an awkward reunion, to be honest. We’ll never forget her last words: ‘You know nothing, Jon Snow’. You were an amazing character Ygritte! Rest in peace. 

Blackfish.001.jpegLook who we have here: Brynden ‘Blackfish’ Tully! Our favourite Tully returned briefly last season. His dialogue with Jaime was awesome as we learned that he hasn’t lost a bit of his personality. He was as sharp as ever. Brienne of Tarth tried to convince the Blackfish to fight for the Starks but just like his father, he remained stubborn and continued to fight for his home, Riverrun. Many fans were disappointed in the way the Blackfish went out. Well, we never got to see it! This legendary fighter may have gone down but we’ll never forget him. He even wins one spot on our list this year. 

Arthur.001.jpegWe have waited a long time to see the best swordsman Westeros has had: ser Arthur Dayne. Man, this guy was impressive. He didn’t have a lot of screentime and I hope we’ll get to see him again one way or another because he looks like a great character. Ser Dayne was about to win in a combat (1v4) but if Howland Reed didn’t kill him from behind, he would have won. At least, Dayne went down as an honorable fighter. Welcome in our list, Arthur Dayne! 

Jaqen.001.jpegA Man has lost 10 places this year. A man is not pleased! We all have to admit it. Jaqen’s arc in season 6 wasn’t the best, though. He had very little to work with and his storyline started to drag. Overall, Jaqen still remains a charming and mysterious character. His character has served its purpose: he made a faceless assassin of Arya Stark. Perhaps, we’ll see him once again but I really doubt that. It would be a nice surprise. Jaqen ends at #36. 

Khal Drogo.001.jpegThis is a big surprise! Khal Drogo impressively earns 11 spots on our list this year! Is it because Daenerys was reintroduced to the Dothraki this year? Well, it may be a contributing factor. Khal Drogo was one of the greatest fighters we have seen in Thrones and Jason Mamoa was excellent in his part. I feel like his character went out way too early… He has a wonderful part to play and I am glad he’s still popular after 5 years of absence. Well done, Drogo! Hopefully, you can make it to the best 30 next year. 

Edd.001.jpeg

Who do we have here! I am happy that this awesome character finally makes our top 50! Edd was great and funny in season 6. His look at Tormund’s flirting face to Brienne was priceless. We would have never guessed that he’d last this long but here we are. Edd made it even to Lord Commander in the sixth season. He has always been a very loyal character, supporting Jon even after his death. This great man deserves his entry in our list. Welcome, Eddison. 

Catelyn Stark.001.jpegWhat a great character she was, our Catelyn Stark. This woman had a hard time in Game of Thrones, losing almost all of her children and her husband. Catelyn Stark was a fierce and strong character and Michelle Fairley did a wonderful job breathing this character to life. Many hoped that Cat would have made a vengeful return but the show choose not to go in that direction. Apart from that, we’ll always consider Catelyn as one of the strongest female characters the show has ever had. It’s a pity that she has lost 9 places, though. 

hodor.001.jpegHold the door! Hodor enters this list at #32. He all surprised us in season 6, didn’t he. We would haver never thought his character would be of such relevance in the most recent season. We learned more about Hodor’s background. His actual name is Wyllis and he was a stableboy in service of House Stark. When the Bran Stark entered the mind in the Hodor of the past, he linked both Wyllis and Hodor’s minds. Hodor’s mind was broken and he could only utter one phrase to save his best friends: ‘Hold the Door’, ‘Ho the Dor’, ‘Hodor’. Arghh, never was a character’s death so devastating. Welcome in the top 50, Wyllis!

Melisandre.001.jpegToo bad, the Red Woman doesn’t make the top 30 this year! Melisandre had an amazing arc in season 6 as we got to see a more vulnerable side of her. Van Houten did a terrific job, especially during the infamous transformation scene! I am bit upset that this character lost 9 places. Even after more than 4 years of having her in the show, she never failed to keep my interest. She’s such a well-written gray character. Melisandre had interesting story arc so far, but the second half of season 6 was a bit disappointing for her. She barely appeared! Besides that, I am happy that Mel is still part of our list. 

Top 30-21 of 2016

Joffrey.001.jpeg

We open our top 30 with a real pain in the ass, named Joffrey Baratheon. Although the character is despicable, the actor Jack Gleeson did an amazing job portraying king Joffrey Baratheon. One of the few deaths we weren’t upset about was Joffrey’s, even though he really suffered in the end. Joffrey got his right cake served. He reigned for almost three full seasons and made up for one of the best written and acting villains in the history of television. This year, he has lost 2 places on our list. 

Aemon.001.jpegOne of the characters we really miss is Maester Aemon! Actor Peter Vaughan passed away this month so that might contribute to his increased popularity this year. He goes 8 places forward in our list. Aemon Targaryen was a kind and wise man, one of the few truly inspiring people in Westeros. He gave up his claim to the Iron Throne and allied himself to the Night’s Watch where he became Maester. Aemon could never really process what the Lannisters did to his family.. The poor man! We shall never see his like again. RIP Peter Vaughan (and Aemon Targaryen). May you forever live through the eyes of  your character. 

Samwell.001.jpeg

Wow, what a climber! Samwell climbs 14 places this year. Impressive, man! Samwell had an interesting arc last season. He didn’t appear in many episodes but it was cool to see him in the South this time. We got to meet his family (and his unsympathetic father), and we finally saw some of Oldtown! Season 6 was, without a doubt, Samwell’s most interesting season. This might explain the increase in the popularity of his character. Hopefully, Sam’s dream comes true next season and he can become a Maester of the Citadel. 

Barristan.001.jpegAnother huge surprise right here! Barristan Selmy climbs 16(!!) spots in our list. This skilled warrior was super loyal to the kings and queens he served, yet he was never really satisfied. He always served a king who wasn’t worth to rule over the Seven Kingdoms. When he was dismissed by King Joffrey, he decided to meet Queen Daenerys Targaryen and realized that she was worth fighting for. Barristan gave his life to defend Daenerys’s and died. He was a truly inspiring figure and he hasn’t been forgotten at all. Very well done, ser Barristan! 

Jorah.001.jpeg

No man can pronounce ‘Khaleesi’ better than Jorah Mormont. Our favorite bear loses 7 spots this year but he still manages to make the top 30. Oof. Jorah hasn’t been the luckiest guy in the series: being exiled to Essos, being friendzoned by the woman he’s head over heels in love with and contracting grayscale. Yet, Jorah doesn’t give up on life and keeps fighting for Daenerys Targaryen.  He ends at #26 this year. 

Ramsay.001.jpegThe main villain in season 6 was Ramsay, no discussion about that. Ramsay’s power increased last year as he became the Warden of the North after killing his own father in cold blood. Ramsay became more sadistic than ever: killing Roose, Walda, Walda’s baby, Osha and Rickon. That’s an impressive list. Just like he deserved, Sansa gave him a gruesome death. This was without a doubt the most satisfying death ever on TV. Iwan Rheon was amazingly good as Ramsay Bolton. He ends at #25 in our list. We’ll miss you in the show, Iwan! 

Bran.001.jpegBIGGEST CLIMBER OF 2016 Bran Stark finally returned in season 6 and his storyline was very impressive! Under the supervision of the Three-Eyed Raven, Bran learns more about Jon and Hodor’s past. The latter’s past was horrifying for Bran. Bran Stark realized his fate in season 6, he had to become the all-knowing Three-Eyed Raven. He’ll be one of the frontline players in the great war to come. Bran climbs 23 (yeah, this is really remarkable!) spots in our list. Congratulations, Isaac! We’d love to discover more of your visions next season. 

Olenna.001.jpeg

One of my personal favorites is Olenna Tyrell. Unfortunately, she loses 2 places in our list this year. I am glad she still makes the 23 best characters. Olenna became a more prominent character in season 6. She finally decided to do something about her grandchildren’s situation and marched her army to the Sept of Baelor. Thanks to Margaery, she decided to leave King’s Landing and thereby escaped death. A smart move by Olenna. She was the only one who could put Cersei in her place and leave her speechless afterward. Olenna didn’t win the game, though. She lost all of her family and is heading toward her end game: avenging her family. She ends at #25. 

Lyanna Mormont.001.jpegHIGHEST NEW ENTRY OF 2016 What an entry for the ruling lady of Bear Island, Lyanna Mormont! We met this little girl last season and found out that she isn’t someone to handle with kid gloves. Lyanna is a fierce leader and was one of the very few who dared to put trust in Jon Snow. Her speech in the season finale gave me goosebumps. She even looks like a young version of Olenna Tyrell! This kid outmaneuvers  everyone from a political viewpoint. Joffrey and Tommen could have learned a great deal from this young lady. Excellent work, Lyanna Mormont of Bear Island! 

Robb.001.jpegThe Young Wolf almost made the top 20! Robb Stark is the second Stark kid in this list and I’m certain we come across even more of them much higher in this list. Robb wasn’t a fortunate character either. The biggest mistake he made was falling in love with the wrong woman. His death scene became one of the iconic moments in Game of Thrones. Robb Stark loses one spot this year and ends at #21. 

THE 20 BEST CHARACTERS OF 2016 

Margaery.001.jpegOne of the devastating losses in Game of Thrones so far is Margaery Tyrell’s death. We met this Queen in season 2 when she was still married to Renly Baratheon. Margaery was fit to rule and groomed by no better political ruler than her grandmother, Olenna. Queen Margaery was obviously trying to win the Game. She was succeeding in getting her brother out of prison and managed to be freed without doing the Walk of Shame. Margaery was the only one who didn’t underestimate Cersei and therefore outsmarted everyone in the Sept of Baelor. Margaery Tyrell was without a doubt one of the most intelligent characters and Game of Thrones and will be terribly missed next season. At least, she went out with a BOOM. The Queen of Hearts loses 7 places this year and opens our top 20. 

Tormund.001.jpegWhat a climb! Well, Tormund is experienced in climbing as we recall. He goes 17 (!) steps forward this year and ends at #19. This wildling fellow wasn’t as popular when we met him in season 3. Slowly he turned into one of the good guys who became part of Jon’s most loyal men. Tormund valiantly fought next to Jon’s side in the Battle of the Bastards, wanting to save his people from Ramsay Bolton. Tormund has won our hearts! And Brienne Tormund’s! 

Sansa.001.jpegI am glad that Sansa Stark made it to the top 20. To be honest, I expected her to be a bit higher! Sansa had a breathtaking arc in season 6. She was finally able to take back what was hers and to take revenge on the man who abused her both physically and mentally. Sansa was also the first to be reunited with another ‘Stark’ kid, Jon Snow. The arrival of her and Littlefinger was another amazing scene during the Battle of the Bastards. Sansa’s character developed wonderfully this year. Too bad, she loses 1 spot in our list.

Theon.001.jpeg What a stunning character development did Theon have up to now. From being an arrogant prick to becoming a true villain who then got tortured and mentally broken, to later finding ways to redeem himself. Theon Greyjoy is one of the great examples of how well-written the characters are. Theon managed to find himself once again with the help from his sister, Yara. He again has a goal to fulfill in the greater game. Theon loses 2 spots this year, ending at a well-deserved 17th spot. 

Brienne of Tarth.001.jpegAnother great climber in our list: it’s Brienne of Tarth. Brienne had a disappointing arc in season 5, but redeemed herself once again in season 6. Brienne kept her oath to Catelyn Stark and returned Sansa, together with Podrick, safely to her brother. She also became Sansa’s loyal right hand! It was beautiful to see how relieved Brienne was when Sansa accepted her proposal. Brienne is one of the most loyal servants, if the not the most loyal servant, in Game of Thrones. I hope to see more badass fights of this warrior woman! For now, well done Brienne! You end quite high in this list, at #16. 

THE 15 BEST CHARACTERS OF 2016

Stannis.001.jpegStannis Baratheon gets knocked out of the top 10 and ends at #15 this year. It’s a year since he’s gone now and the show has never been the same since his death. Stephen Dillane did a terrific job by bringing this great character to life. Stannis was a troubled man who had to choose between the good and the evil. The many disappointments in his life lead him to choose a darker path. In a moment of total desperation, he decides to burn his daughter at the stake and thereby lost a great deal of his army. He fought and he lost. May you rest in peace, Stannis Baratheon. The one true king! 

Bronn.001.jpegDon’t say it. Don’t fucking say it.’ This is our man, Bronn. Bronn earns 4 spots in our top 50 this year. Bronn did quite well for himself: from being a cut-throat to being knighted after the Battle of Blackwater. Bronn was always seen next to Tyrion’s side but since season 5, it looks like he has become Jaime’s right hand. Jaime and Bronn together went on a mission to Dorne, which failed. Thereafter they traveled to the Riverlands in order to give Riverrun back to the Freys. This time they won. Bronn is a man of few words. He says what he thinks and doesn’t give one shit about anyone else. Way to go Bronn! 

Petyr.001.jpeg‘The climb is all there is’. He was right, after all, our Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger. This sly master manipulator manages to climb three steps this year. Petyr had some interesting stuff to work with this year. He tried to convince Robin Arryn to bring The Vale into the fold when it comes to the war against the Boltons. Sansa first rejected his offer but later realized that they need him at all cost. When Petyr and Sansa arrived just in time to save Jon and his army, the smug look on his face was priceless. What a great character he is. Well done this year, Littlefinger. I can’t wait to see more of your scheming next season. 

Varys.001.jpegAnother climber in this list. If there is someone who rivals Littlefinger, it is Varys without a doubt. Varys is as manipulative as Littlefinger but there’s one big difference: Varys is actually one of the good guys. Since season 5, we’ve found out that his true loyalty lays with the Targaryens as he’s a loyal supporter of Daenerys Targaryen. Varys’s best friend throughout the series has to be Tyrion Lannister. Tyrion didn’t really trust him in the beginning, but later he realized that Varys is one of the few genuine friends he has got. Good job this year, Varys! 

Oberyn.001.jpegExactly like last year, Oberyn Martell almost (!) made the top 10. Too bad, he didn’t succeed in entering the list of 10 best characters but this is a great result after all. Oberyn didn’t appear in many episodes, yet he’s considered as one of the best characters the show has ever had. Everything was great about this character: the acting, the storyline, the fighting, his dialogues. He had an impressive arc which ended with a major death scene. Oberyn was so popular that the TV-series took the step to introduce Dorne to us. It turned out not be as great as Oberyn’s character, though. 

THE 10 BEST CHARACTERS OF 2016

Cersei .001.jpegWe kick off the top 10 with a great character: Cersei Lannister. Cersei’s arc was a hell of a roller coaster filled with emotions. Cersei never was a gentle lady but we surely can sympathize with her. We witnessed how she slowly loses everything she holds dear: her children. The price she has to pay for the Iron Price is enormous. During the coronation, you can see how cold and broken Cersei’s character has become, only filled with hatred. Cersei is without a doubt one of my favorite characters which may have ended higher on this list. Unfortunately, she has to set 2 steps back. 

Daenerys.001.jpegThis Queen with way too many titles manages to climb one spot in our top 10 best characters! Very well done, Dany! Daenerys pleased us this season with great speeches and flying demonstrations on her favorite dragon, Drogon. Her actions scenes in ‘Battle of the Bastards’ were epic and one of the best the show has ever seen. In the season finale, Daenerys took a huge step in her arc and finally decided to travel to Westeros with her army. I am certain Daenerys will end higher on this list next year! For now, she ends at the ninth place. 

Tywin.001.jpegAnother great character right over here! Tywin Lannister was the most intimidating character the show has ever had. As strong as a lion, I’m sure he’d make a very powerful and good ruling king. Tywin was absolutely winning the war but his only flaw was underestimating Tyrion. This meant his undergoing. Tywin was a cold and cunning strategist who went great lengths to achieve victory. Rest in peace Tywin Lannister. Yes, now the rains weep o’er his hall and not a soul to hear. 

Hound.001.jpegHe made a surprising return in season 6; everyone’s favorite big hound ‘Sandor Clegane’! Sandor took a step back from all this killing and found peace in his life again with the help from Brother Ray. When Ray and the other villagers got slaughtered, the Hound decided to start killing again. He bumped into the Brotherhood Without Banners and became part of the group. It was a glorious moment when we realized that Sandor Clegane returned to Game of Thrones. This guy delivers the best one-liners in the show. Let’s get out with one of his. ‘Fuck the King’. 

Ned .001.jpegI am sorry to inform you that Ned Stark has been thrown out of the top five. This also means we will welcome someone new in our top 5 best characters of 2016. It all started with good old Ned Stark. You may be gone for more than 5 years, but you’re still one of the most popular characters the show has ever had. Ned even appeared in the most recent season as a younger version of himself. If you would live right now, you’d probably be proud of Sansa and Jon. Those two managed to get Winterfell back and reclaim it in the name of House Stark. For now, Ned ends at the sixth spot. 

WE ARE ENTERING THE TOP FIVE. 

But before that, I first want to mention the characters who were thrown out of the top 50 this year:

  • Tommen Baratheon (2015: 49th place)
  • Gilly (2015: 45th place)
  • Alliser Thorne (2015: 44th place)
  • Osha (2015: 41th place)
  • Missandei (2015: 38th place)
  • High Sparrow (2015: 35th place)
  • Thoros of Myr (2015: 34th place)
  • Yoren (2015: 33th place)
  • Shireen Baratheon (2015: 32th place)
  • Viserys Targaryen (2015: 31th place)

THE GREAT GAME: THE BIG FIVE 

Davos.001.jpegThe biggest surprise of 2016: Davos Seaworth enters the top 5! This makes me really happy! Davos chose Jon’s side last season and it turned out to be an excellent choice. He’s the perfect loyal right hand to Jon, just like he ever was of Stannis. He even fiercely fought together with Jon Snow in the war against House Bolton. Davos also got his revenge for Shireen’s death by letting Jon banish Lady Melisandre. Davos is the one and only to take over Ned’s position in this list. Only honorable men can take the 5th spot. Well done, ser Onion Knight. 

Arya.001.jpeg BEST FEMALE CHARACTER OF 2016 Arya no longer has a spot in the top 3, but she still manages to hold the title of ‘best female character in Game of Thrones (2016)’, which already is spectacular. Some people think Arya had a disappointing arc in season 6 and I (partly) agree with that. Arya’s return to Westeros in the season finale was badass and I can’t wait to see more of her now that’s she’s right back in the game. Being ‘successfully’ trained as a Faceless Assassin, you better watch out for this serial killer. Congratulations, Arya! You did very well this year. 

Jaime.001.jpegThis year, Jaime swaps places with Arya Stark and I’m OK with that. Jaime has always been a strong character. Even stronger in season 6, though. His dialogue with Edmure was great, as was his little moment with Brienne of Tarth. Season 6 was all about Jaime’s complicated relationship with Cersei. After the death of Myrcella, they found a way to grow closer again. When Jaime returns to the Red Keep after taking Riverrun from the Tullys, he clearly is upset with Cersei’s actions (which resulted in their last son’s death). I am curious to find out where they will go from here. Welcome in the top 3, Jaime fockin’ Lannister!

PP.001.jpegAnd yes, it happened! Tyrion no longer maintains his first position in the list. Other than that, Tyrion is without a doubt a wonderful character with witty dialogues and beautiful character development. To be honest, his storyline in season 6 was quite disappointing. He did nothing else than advising Daenerys and hardly developed. His best moment was when Daenerys made him Hand of the King once again. Tyrion in season 1 up to season 5 had an am-az-ing arc and only for that he right away deserves a spot in the top 3. I am sure his popularity will increase again when he’s reunited with his family next season. Still, Tyrion Lannister ended super high on this list! Congratulations!

THE BEST GAME OF THRONES CHARACTER (2016 EDITION)

jon.001.jpeg

BEST MALE CHARACTER OF 2016 Congratulation Jon Snow. What an amazing arc did he have in season 6? This man truly deserves the first place on our list. Being brought back from the dead by Melisandre, taking revenge on ser Alliser Thorne and Olly, starting and winning the war against the Boltons and finally becoming the King in the North. He must have been the luckiest man around this time. We got to know Jon Snow as a rather dull and uninspiring character but it turned out that he’d become the big hero of the story. We even discovered his parentage in the most recent season finale. What a wonderful season it was… I am eager to find out what will happen to him next season now he’s proclaimed as King in the North. Congratulations, Mr. Snow! 

I hope you like this list! Let me know in the comments below. Thanks again for voting! I hope to see you again next year around the same time.
