Game of Thrones Deaths
A Complete List of Deaths in Game of Thrones
The book series “A song of Ice and Fire” and its HBO TV adaptation “Game of Thrones” are known for many things but no one can deny that one of the things it’s famous (or infamous) for is the high number of characters that are killed. Anyone can die at any time. Unlike what Hollywood is usually showing, main characters can die too. Characters with good values, strong background and rich with details can easily be killed by small characters.
There are many other sites out there that claim to count the exact number of Game of Thrones death count. Some include animals some doesn’t. We believe it is practically impossible to know how many soldiers died in the large battle scenes. Therefore, we tried to capture every death in Game of Thrones of a character we can easily point out. Those characters will fall under one of the three categories:
Major – A main character in the plot. Usually belongs to one of the houses but not necessarily. It is also not necessarily he/she appeared a lot in the show, for example: Robert Baratheon.
Medium – Not a main character but one with a notable contribution to the story. Usually appeared or mentioned more than a few times. One that when his/her name is mentioned, you will know right away who it is. A good example is Syrio Forel.
Minor – Someone that didn’t contribute too much but can be referred to by name. Honestly, when his/her name will be mentioned, you will scratch your head for a sec and then say “oh, yes, the one from that scene”. A good example is Khal Moro (the Khal Daenerys killed with her dragon in the sixth season).
There is another factor we try to track in our Game of Thrones death list. The factor is: Viewer’s Satisfaction from Death. This factor tries to estimate how much we, as viewers, were satisfied with the death. It is a scale from 1 to 5. 1 being not satisfied at all (for example: Ned Stark). 5 is very satisfied (for example: Ramsay Bolton). Obviously, this is subjective so any comment is appreciated.
You can see the full table below. But now, here are some cool graphs.
