Top 10 Tuesday: Toughest characters in ‘Game of Thrones’


    Phillip Pakowski

    “Game of Thrones” is sweeping the nation right now. Check out the top 10 toughest characters in the show.

    “Game of Thrones” is one of the most popular TV shows today. While many characters get killed off each season, these 10 have made it through so far. These are the top 10 toughest characters on Game of Thrones that are still alive — for now.

    Arya Stark

    By far the toughest character on the show. She went from learning to fight in kings landing to becoming an assassin in Braavos. She is slowly marking the people off her list, and it is definitely who I pay the most attention to.

    Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane

    This doesn’t need much explaining. In real life the Mountain is 6-foot-9 and over 400 pounds. In the show he is one of the fiercest warriors.

    Daenerys Targaryen

    The mother of dragons should clearly be included on this list. She assembled the largest army ever and commands a few, fully grown dragons.

    Jon Snow

    Often regarded as one of the greatest swordsmen in Westeros, he has survived in the face of the dead, the white walkers and many other foes.

    Brienne of Tarth

    Brienne is one of the greatest fighters. She beat the hound in single combat, and her loyalty is second to none.

    Sandor “The Hound” Clegane

    Although he lost to Brienne, he is still one of the greatest fighters ever. He’s not quite as big as his brother, the Mountain, but he can still hold his own against any foe.

    Tormund Giantsbane

    The leader of the wildlings is a ferocious fighter. He has survived insurmountable odds.

    Ser Bronn of the Blackwater

    The hero of Blackwater Bay, Bronn has been one of the toughest characters since he first stepped up to defend Tyrion Lannister in his trial by combat.

    Grey Worm

    Grey Worm, as a member of the Unsullied, is the leader of one of the deadliest armies ever. He became popular among the people of Mereen as he became a symbol of their freedom.

    Cersei Lannister

    One of the cruelest people on the show, Cersei is also one of the most clever. She uses people to her advantage and then discards them like they are nothing. She deserves a spot on this list.
