HBO hit the jackpot when it decided to green light Game of Thrones. This is the best TV show ever made and the entire world tunes in when HBO releases a new episode. If you’re wondering what makes Game of Thrones so special you should know that it’s the fact that it includes something for everyone. What I mean by that is that it has romance, action, horror and even comedy! The other thing that makes Game of Thrones so interesting to watch is the amazing cast of young actors who grew up at the same time with the show.
This show’s actors are so incredibly good that people forget that they are only playing a role and start hating or loving them. Furthermore, the actors who shine the most in this show are the villains. The writers have made a great job of creating interesting story lines for them and the actors deliver it perfectly. Without any further ado, here are 25 of the worst characters in Game of Thrones.
What better way to start other than with Joffrey Baratheon himself? Everyone who has seen at least one episode of Game of Thrones will confirm that Joffrey Baratheon is the worst character ever!
Ramsay Bolton first appears as a nice and pleasant man but as everyone soon found out, he is one of the most terrifying characters! This guy is so cruel and mean to everyone around him that you will definitely hate him!
The Lannisters are one of the most important families in this show and every one of them has an important role. While most of them are cool characters who are just following their family legacy, Lancel takes a different route and joins a cult that ruins everything in King’s Landing.
Daenerys is not a hated character, but this doesn’t mean that she is good! Her intention might be good but she always ends up ruining everything around her because she isn’t able to control her dragons. In fact, there is even an episode that shows the consequences of her letting the dragons roam free and burn the villages around.
The Night’s Knight
The Night’s Knight obviously has a place on our list since he is the biggest villain of them all. His only purpose is basically to conquer everyone and everything.
Kevan Lannister is considered to be one of the worst characters because he sits in a place of power and does nothing to help people. He is even named the Hand of the King at some point in time and still does nothing with his powerful position.
Cersei Lannister needs no introduction because everyone knows who she is. However, just to get an idea how evil she is you should know that she is behind most of the major bad event in this show.
Walder Frey is a scrupulous man that doesn’t care for anything else other than him. His worst deed is helping the Boltons host the Red Wedding.
Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish
Lord Baelish seems to be just a cunning entrepreneur when the show starts but things take a drastic change when he takes of his mask and shows his true intentions.
While this might be a little bit unfair to the character, she is indirectly responsible for the Red Wedding and Rob Stark’s death.
Olly is one of the most hated characters on this show because even though John Snow was good to him and took him under his apprentice, he still decided to turn on him during a riot.
Melisande does so many bad things throughout the show that it would take me five pages to list them all.
Melisande managed to convince Stannis Baratheon to do all sorts of bad things in order to win the battle. He even hurt his loved ones in order to win.
The Sand Snakes
These three girls are Oberyn Martel’s oldest daughters and they are highly trained for battle. They have only one purpose on this show and that’s to kill the Lannisters.
Alliser Thorne is the Lord and Commander of the Night’s Watch and he makes John Snow’s life a living h*** for an entire season.
Rickon Stark is one of the unluckiest characters on this show but everyone still hates him for not being able to run in Zig-Zag motion when Ramsey Bolton was shooting for him.
Roose Bolton, the father of Ramsey is a backstabbing maniac that loves hurting his enemies.
Viserys Targaryen is so evil that he decides to sell his sister for an army of Dothraki soldiers.
Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane
The Mountain is Cersei Lannister’s personal bodyguard and he hurts hundreds of people throughout the show.
The Waif is definitely one of the most hated characters, especially when her only purpose in this show was to torment Arya Stark.
Ser Meryn Trant
Ser Meryn Trant is a Knight of the Royal Guard and he is the perfect example of why bad people shouldn’t be put in a place of power and influence.
Lysa Arryn is the aunt of the Stark kids and she does nothing to help them out even though she is a powerful leader that has the necessary resources.
Styr is the leader of the Thenns and I think this is enough to make him one of the worst.
Hizdahr Zo Loraq
This character received eight episodes of air time and was married to Daenerys who is one of the show’s biggest characters but he is only remembered for plotting with the Dark Harpies against Daenerys.
Theon Greyjoy becomes one of the worst characters when he decides to forcefully take the Winterfell Castle from the Starks which basically means he bit the hand that fed him.
