There are so many reasons to love the world author George R.R. Martin has created with his A Song of Ice and Fire series, and one of those is the villains. Throughout the books and the HBO adaptation Game of Thrones, viewers and readers fall in love with multiple characters and completely despise others. Along with the fact that no character is safe in Game of Thrones, another thing you can always expect is to meet ruthless villains who are just pure evil.

From the worst of the worst in Ramsay Bolton and Joffrey Baratheon to characters we just love to hate such as Cersei Lannister and Littlefinger, Game of Thrones gives us so many villains to choose from. And even if a character is meant to be a hero, no one’s perfect in Westeros. Characters like Daenerys Targaryen are beloved by many fans, while absolutely hated by others. It’s hard to predict the actions the characters will take, and they end up surprising us by the end.
