All 48 ‘Game of Thrones’ Main Characters, Ranked Worst to Best (Photos)

We judge all the characters played by cast members who have been listed in the main credits so far.

There are a lot of characters on “Game of Thrones.” Too many for me to make jokes about all of them here, anyway. 48 will have to satisfy. If you don’t like them, Littlefinger himself,Petyr Baelish, will poison your wedding cake.

We start with Viserys Targaryan, a total ass who had maybe the best death in the whole series: having molten gold dumped on his head.

Also on the list is Theon (I’m still pulling for his post-castration power play. Or for his ass to just get killed already) and Sansa (She named her dog “Lady,” which imo is a huge indictment of her character. But she gets lots of sympathy points for, well, literally everything that happened after she got the dog).

Where is Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emila Clarke)? And what about the Starks, and the Red Witch, and Arya?

Also on our list is Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson), who is just the best. He’s sad because his life sucks. A badass who kills a lot of his problems. Communicates a lot without saying much. Grey Worm seems like the kind of tragic “Game of Thrones” character who is going to have a brief moment of triumph before getting slaughtered. I hope that triumph is really good.

Read our list to see where everyone winds up. Here are the credited “Game of Thrones” characters, ranked.
