50 most heartbreaking Game of Thrones deaths

3 of 9


40. Mycah – Season 1 “The Kingsroad”

Arya and Mycah were pals. Joffrey didn’t like that she, a noble, was friends with a poor person and made fun of her. She fought back, “hurt” him, and in turn, he ordered the Hound to kill Mycah. This Game of Thrones death was sad only because he was an innocent child. But it really signified everyone’s mutual hatred of the little prince.

39. Leaf – Season 6 “The Door”

Leaf was one of the Children of the Forest and helped save Bran and Hodor from being attacked by wights. I liked her because she saved them, but I’m also annoyed because the Children of Men created the White Walkers.

38. The Three-Eyed Raven – Season 6 “The Door”

Though we only saw him in human form a few times, he taught Bran how to see “everything.” He also showed him visions that gave us some important info about Jon Snow being a Targaryen before we officially knew that. So, it was sad to see him get killed by wights.

37. Roderick Cassel – Season 2 “The Old Gods and the New”

The master-at-arms at Winterfell trained all the men who lived there: Robb, Jon, and Theon. That’s why it was heartbreaking that his own trainee, Theon, turned on him and beheaded him.

36. Brynden Tully (The Blackfish) – Season 6 “No One”

I liked the Blackfish. He had spunk. The Lord of Riverrun, he was a fierce warrior and didn’t take no crap from noone. When the Frey’s took Riverrun, he took it right back. We can only assume he met his maker when Jamie Lannister showed up to take Riverrun back. But who knows? He escaped the Red Wedding, maybe he escaped this, too.

35. Wun Wun – Season 6 “Battle of the Bastards”

Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun the giant (that’s a mouthful) helped Jon win the Battle of the Bastards but met his demise with several hundred arrows, one directly in his eye. Since he seemed to be a lethal, yet gentle giant, and on the good guy’s team, it was tough to see him go. He would have been valuable in the upcoming war against the Night King.

34. Trystane Martell – Season 6 “The Red Woman”

Sure, we didn’t know him well. But the Prince of Dorne who was supposed to marry Myrcella was impaled with a spear through the back of his head by one of those horrible Sand Snakes. Let’s not forget it was his own cousin, too. Poor guy, he did nothing to deserve such a gruesome end.

33. Syrio Forel – Season 1 “The Prince of Winterfell”

I love how they call sword teachers “dance instructors” on Game of Thrones. It makes sense because there is both fluidity and gracefulness that goes with sword fighting. That’s why it was awful to know that Arya’s dancing instructor was killed by Meryn Trant. Don’t worry, Arya got her revenge on him.

32. and 31. Walden Bolton/Baby – Season 6 “Home”

These Game of Thrones deaths were shocking, although they shouldn’t have been. Roose Bolton recently legitimized his bastard son, Ramsay, so that he could succeed him. But then, Roose’s wife gives birth to a son. So, what does the psychopath do? Kills his father, who doesn’t make the list for obvious reasons. Then he turns his hounds on his father’s wife and newborn half-brother. If this one didn’t turn your stomach, I don’t know what will.
