A definitive ranking of the worst villains in Westeros
HBO I don’t think there’s any tv show, past or present, that has such a robust cast of villains, as Game of Thrones does. Most shows will aim for one, but this show, man… every episode has got me raging and screaming at the debased Asshole-ery on display. And every single one of them is a bad guy for the most human of reasons.
So, going into the final season, I figured I’d rank ’em based on their actions and my feelings toward them. Note, I’m leaving the Night King out, because he’s more of a natural force, rather than a man with an evil plan.
HBO 22) Lancel Lannister
The guy’s a traitor to his family, and in his clueless state, decided to join with the Sparrows. Then he goes around, armed with lies and betrayal, just to please his little cult.
There’s nothing redeeming in being someone else’s bitch for no good reason.
HBO 21) Xaro Xhoan Daxos & Pyat Pree
This annoying duo from Quarth weren’t really a threat anyone, but they still were manipulative as fuck. I’ve got a soft spot for Dany, so anyone with the wrong intentions, gets on my hit list. Oh, and throw in Doreah too, she was a sneaky bitch.
At least they all got what what coming to them.
HBO 20) Karl Tanner
This guy was a self-centred, douchebag of a rapist and murderer, who led a mutiny against the Night’s Watch.
Oh, and he murdered Lord Commander Mormont and then drank wine from his skull. So, there’s that.
HBO 19) Ser Janos Slynt
There’s always someone who ends up with a high title, and hides behind it like a suit of armour, even though they haven’t done much to deserve it. This dude was also a coward and a baby killer. He’s also the guy that betrayed Ned Stark and got him arrested and executed. Thankfully, Jon Snow took his head off too.
HBO 18) Locke
This guy was a for the TV show, so there’s not a lot of build up or history to him. Despite that, he was still a depraved bastard. He tried to rape Brienne, then feed her to a bear, he crippled Bran, then took the Kingslayer’s sword hand.
But what a way to go, when Bran uses Hodor to practically rip his head off.
HBO 17) The Waif
An acolyte to the Faceless Men, she could have helped train Arya to be an elite assassin. Instead, she was a relentless bully. Beating her, belittling her, murdering Lady Crane, and finally trying to kill Arya, she got what she deserved.
HBO 16) Grand Master Pycelle
This guy’s lasted 6 seasons by keeping his head down, but he’s also cowardly and an annoying brown noser. He’s also lacks any moral credibility, as he claims to serve House Lannister, but testifies against Tyrion in open court.
HBO 15) Craster
He might have been a friend to the NIght’s Watch at one point, but he’s also a big piece of shit. He’s a wildling who raped his daughters and fed his incest-born sons to the White Walkers. Definitely not daddy material.
HBO 14) Ser Meryl Trant
This guy has no honour. He’s a knight who’ll break his sworn duty to defend the weak and the innocent without hesitation or question, when asked. He also beats and humiliates Sansa, and likes his prostituted a little too young.
This guy was disgusting.
HBO 13) Viserys Targaryen
This son of the Mad King loved to call himself the Dragon, but he was anything but. He was a whiner and a loser, and thought it’d be cool to molest and sell his sister.
His death by Khal Drogo is easily one of the best in the series.
HBO 12) Qyburn
This guy’s an insane mad doctor, who’s somehow the Queen’s hand. He does some good things with his knowledge of medicine, but he’s alluded to some sinister activities in the past.
Plus, turning the Mountain into a stitched together monster is not cool.
HBO 11) Ser Alliser Thorne
This guy was good at running his mouth, but not so good at managing the Night’s Watch. On top of that, he was a sore loser and led the mutiny against Jon. That makes him a huge bastard in my books.
HBO 10) Mirri Mai Duur
While she was only in a few episodes, she really got under everyone’s skin for what she did to Dany’s unborn child and partner. It’s a shitty way to repay Daenerys’ kindness. I get doing what she did to Khal Drogo, but an innocent child? That’s a hard no.
HBO 9) Roose Bolton
Now we’re getting to the fun part of the list. This Machiavellian menace is ice cold. By killing his king in the heart, and teasing Catelyn about it beforehand, he paved the way for his bastard son to wreck havoc.
HBO 8) The Mountain
He’s most notorious for what he did 17 years before the show began, with the murder of Elia Martell’s babies, and his subsequent rape and murder of her. From then on, he’s done some nasty shit.
HIs defeat of the Red Viper is as brutal as they come, and now he’s an obedient zombie, with no restraint.
HBO 7) The High Sparrow
There’s no greater villain, then the guy who wraps himself up in a cloak of self-righteousness. This guy is a deluded fanatic, and his act of forcing Cersei to be paraded through the streets nude, is a carnal sin of misogyny.
There’s nothing worse than a fanatic who thinks he’s got the gods on his side.
HBO 6) Ramsay Bolton
I’ve never seen anyone who loves torture as much as this guy. He’s annoying as fuck and made me want to punch my tv every time he showed his face. His most heinous acts, of castrating Theon and raping Sansa, make him the worst of the worst.
HBO 5) Walder Frey
While he wasn’t has heavily featured as some other villains, he’s still a colossal douche. He’s changed the kingdom forever, over a petty reason and that whole Red Wedding thing? Yeah, nice guys don’t do that.
HBO 4) Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish
He might not seem like much at first, but he’s a weasel. He also secretly started the War of the Five Kings, and feasted on the chaos. Plus, he betrayed my man Ned.
HBO 3) Tywin Lannister
Granted, he was an endlessly complicated patriarch, full of hypocrisy and double standards, but man, he’s a charming asshole. He cuts a bloody path through the first 4 seasons of the show, placing his family’s name higher than the people in it, and he also ordered the death of his own son.
HBO 2) Cersei Lannister
Granted, she hasn’t had a good life – getting married off at a young age, raped nightly, and having her first child stillborn. Still though, she’s as frigid as they come.
Starting off slow with the murder of her husband, she’s grown ambitious and foolish. Her rash decisions meant that she’s partnered with the Sparrows, corrupted the Mountain, and blew up a quarter of her capital, killing thousands.
Between all the incest and murder, she’s descended into madness, and it’s interesting to see where she’ll go in the last season.
HBO 1) Joffrey Baratheon
There is no one worse than this snivelling, petty, and completely ignorant demon spawn. I hated every second that he was on screen, and that’s saying a lot. He was a fucking sociopath, who had the balls to condemn others to death, but also was afraid of his dwarf uncle and those close to him.
Plus his knee-jerk reaction to publicly execute Ned Stark, and revoke his offer of mercy, set off ripples that are still being felt, going into the final season. The dude was a brat.
Say ‘White Walker’ again. Say ‘White Walker’ again, I dare you, I double dare you, say White Walker one more Goddamn time! Check out our ‘Game of Fiction’ tee while it’s available, RIGHT HERE!
