10 Game of Thrones Characters You Actually Want(ed) To Be Killed

The Game of Thrones TV series has gone MAJOR since its initial airing in 2011. It is from the creative mind of George R. R. Martin and has gone on to sell astronomically, both in the form of books and with the variety of DVDs. Also, the merchandise is crazy good – seriously, have you seen the POP! Vinyl figures?!

There are sex scenes and there is fighting and brutality aplenty - and the series is now notorious for killing off its main characters and not caring for the poor viewers who have to watch it play out on screen. It would be easy to list the characters whose deaths have brought tears to the eyes of many a viewer, however, I want to discuss those characters whose deaths you actually pray for. Below is a list of my top 10 to be given the chop (sorry Theon, no pun intended, well maybe)…

10 Sansa Stark


Sansa Stark – the second child of Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell and his wife Catelyn Stark. She was married off to Joffrey Baratheon (more on him later) who beheaded her father while she watched and was an all-round bad guy. She was then married to Ramsay Bolton, another messed up individual, and one with a strange penchant for chopping off the most important male appendage.

9 Robin Arryn


Robin Arryn – the only surviving child of Jon Arryn and Lysa Arryn of the House Tully. There is a lot to dislike about this young boy; most notably, his insistence on throwing anything out of the Moon Door, and crying when he doesn’t get what he wants. He is a spoiled brat of the highest calibre, so much so that he is STILL breastfeeding, I mean seriously, breastfeeding at his age, that’s just downright creepy.

8 Lysa Arryn


Lysa Arryn – mother of Robyn and wife of deceased Jon Arryn. If you think Robin is bad, his mother is worse. She’s a 10 year old girl in a 40(?) year old women’s body. Letting her child suckle on her at ten years old and allowing him to order people to their deaths is just bad parenting. I think she needs to be a better role model; buy your son a bottle and fill it with milk if need be. Hell, stick a teat on the top of the bottle if it makes him feel better!

7 Tywin Lannister


Tywin Lannister – Head of House Lannister and father to Jaime, Cersei and Tyrion. Tywin is the much-feared patriarch of the Lannister family, his wife is dead, killed by Tyrion when he was born and he has a real resentment towards him because of this – again, if you hate Tyrion then you aren’t high on my list of potential survivors.

6 Petyr Baelish AKA Littlefinger


Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger – he’s a little… something, I’ll give him that. Littlefinger is a brothel owner and successful entrepreneur, dabbling in the dark arts of human trafficking and the sex trade, not a great guy all being told. He was in love with Catelyn Stark after growing up with her and has a chip on his shoulder because of this rejection.

5 Stannis Baratheon


Stannis Baratheon – the middle child of Steffon and Cassana Baratheon and heir apparent to the throne of Westeros. Stannis is a character who, at the beginning, you actually want to see succeed. He has a sense of honour and hates Joffrey; preach! But, deep down, he’s a glory-chasing, child-murdering douche-bag. He has a loyal knight in Ser Davos Seaworth who he treats like dirt and a sweet, afflicted daughter who he burnt to death. Fair enough, these are on the orders of the Red Woman, Melisandre but still, who does that?!

4 Melisandre AKA The Red Woman


Melisandre aka The Red Woman – this is a woman who gave birth to a murdering shadow, if that doesn’t make her eligible for the top 5 then I don’t know what does!

3 Joffrey Baratheon


Joffrey Baratheon – oldest son of an incestuous "coming together" between Jaime Lannister and Cersei Lannister. Joffrey is actually one of my favourite characters, you just cannot stop yourself from hating him. Kudos to George R. R. Martin for creating him and just as honourable a mention to Jack Gleeson who nailed the character.

2 Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister – the mother of Joffrey Baratheon et al and incestuous queen mother. Cersei is on a whole different level when it comes to scheming and throwing snide comments. She is in love with her brother and has had three children with him. Cersei orders the death of innocent children and the death of her own husband.

1 Ramsay Bolton


Ramsay Bolton – the penis-removing torturer of Theon Greyjoy – who himself only just missed out on making this list. Ramsay Bolton is the epitome of evil. His psychopathic ways have ensured that he will go down in the annals of the most brutal TV characters to have "graced" the screen.

He reduced Theon to only a jabbering wreck (Reek) and sent his severed penis to his father in a box; what a b*stard – literally! Ramsay plays games with his victims and uses them for sport. He is one that truly deserves the title of #1 character I want to see die!
