Top 10 Most Evil Game of Thrones Characters

You evil son of a gun

Over the years in Game of Thrones many characters have come and gone. Out of all of them there have been many who were just plain evil. I’m going to list my top 10 who I think were the most evil. I’ll explore who they are, and why they were/are evil.

10. Theon Greyjoy

Please no more

Currently, Theon might be on the path of redeeming himself, but in season 2 he went full on evil. He took over Winterfell, and killed many people to keep the house his. He might be trying to redeem himself, but he has a lot to make up for.

9. Locke

Can I give you a hand?

Some of you may not remember Locke, but let me refresh your memory; he is the one who cut off Jaime Lannister’s hand. He loved torture, and it just made him a sick person. He even had Brienne fight a bear for heaven’s sake.

8. Lysa Arryn

I’m not crazy.

Now Lysa may not seem that evil to you, but she was one crazy person. Just to have the crown she poisoned her husband, and to keep it she tried to kill Sansa. This woman was just nuts, and her son wasn’t any better.

7. Robin Arryn

You won’t ruin this for me.

I’m putting the son after the mother because Lysa was crazy, but Robin just took it further. At ten years old he is still being breastfed, and because of his crazy mother he is spoiled beyond belief. When he doesn’t get his way he just tortures the person, and loves seeing it. With him still alive, and being just a little crazier than his mother, that is why he is after her on my list.

6. Stannis Baratheon

The crown will be mine.

When we first meet Stannis we don’t think he is all that bad of a person. He believes he deserves the crown to the Seven Kingdoms, and he fights to get it. As the series progressed though he became so obsessed with retrieving the crown that through the orders of Melisandre he kills his one and only daughter. I don’t know about you, but you have to become some kind of twisted person to kill your only child to get something you want.

5. Jaime Lannister

I’ll do anything you ask of me.

Jaime may now be trying to redeem himself, but he still is a bad guy. Also, in the very beginning he was pretty twisted. He threw Bran out a window, and he does and did whatever he can to please Cersei. He kills who he has to kill, and whatever Cersei wants done he does; no matter the consequences. He is trying to redeem himself, but he still follows a crazy woman.

4. Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish

Who can I hurt next?

Petyr has been evil since the beginning, but he just calls it love. I would never want anyone to love me the way Littlefinger loves. Throughout the series he helped get Ned Stark killed, he killed Lysa Arryn, he sold Sansa to Ramsay Bolton, and he tried to turn Sansa and Arya against each other. He did all of this in the name of love. This isn’t love, this is just evil.

3. Joffrey Baratheon

You will do what I say.

From the very first moment you meet Joffrey you already know he is going to be just plain evil, and you are right. Joffrey does nothing decent at all the entire time he is alive, and you hate him every second he shows up. He kills Ned Stark, shows Sansa the beginnings of what torture is, kills countless prostitutes, and has people fight to the death for just the spectacle of it. With Cersei as his mother it wasn’t a surprise how evil he was, but sometimes he even scared her which was hard to do. His death was one of the happiest moments in the series for me, and if you are a fan I know you understand.

2. Ramsay Bolton

Thank you, I will take another limb.

When Ramsay shows up he seems bad, but man is this guy nuts. With all that he does he makes Joffrey’s actions seem like child’s play. Sansa thought Joffrey was bad to her, but the things Ramsay does to her makes you just cringe at every image of it. Joffrey may have liked killing people, but Ramsay liked cutting parts off of people that should never be cut off. The example I have is Theon’s part that he lost that no man should ever lose. I didn’t like Theon, but that should never happen to any man for any reason. Ramsay just got pure enjoyment out of causing pain, and his tactics got worse and worse.

1. Cersei Lannister

I will betray you all.

Now you might be wondering why I’m putting Cersei as my number one when Ramsay was so much worse. The answer is that Cersei is still alive. Yes, Joffrey and Ramsay were both monsters, and much more evil than Cersei, but Cersei is still alive, and still power hungry. She is one of those people who always want more power even after she has so much. She has killed countless people to get the crown to the Seven Kingdoms, and even with the White Walkers coming she is still going to betray the alliance she just made with Dany, Jon, and the rest to get even more power. The White Walkers might be dead, but Cersei has no heart whatsoever.

Well that is my list, and my opinion of the 10 most evil characters in Game of Thrones. Who would you put on your list? In the end, you may not agree with all of my choices, but this is my list, and I encourage you to make your own list.
