So right here we’re, on the finish of our weeks lengthy rating of the strongest warriors in all of Westeros, and the top of Recreation of Thrones as an entire. Whereas George RR Martin did warn us that the ending can be bittersweet, we didn’t assume it will be as a result of the writing was going to be dangerous. Yeah, the previous few episodes have landed fairly exhausting with crowds, however that doesn’t make us any much less excited for this week’s collection finale. Will Jon take the Iron Throne? Will Dany get away together with her struggle crimes with none comeuppance? Will Bran ever truly do one thing of worth?
Whereas we’ll discover all of that out on Sunday, we’re right here to seek out out who the strongest fighter on the present truly is. That is the highest 10 deadliest women and men of the collection, every certainly one of which is terrifying and harmful in their very own proper. Who got here out on prime? Nicely let’s take a stroll via the most important badasses within the 7 kingdoms to find who’s the best warrior on Recreation of Thrones!
In fact, we begin with the honorable mentions.
Honorable point out: Cersei Lannister
Although her solely private kill is technically the offscreen poisoning demise of Tyene Sand, Cersei is answerable for a few of the gnarliest and most nicely coordinated murders within the collection. Whether or not it’s her political maneuvering stirring battle between rival homes, or her community of spies loading the Sept of Baelor to the gills with wildfire, Ms. Lannister – to cite the WWE’s Victoria – ‘aint the woman to mess with. Nonetheless, this can be a record of warriors, and Cersei would by no means decrease herself to swing a sword of her personal. In contrast to…
Honorable point out: Daenerys Targaryen
The newly minted Mad Queen is one other character extra deeply rooted within the politics of the collection. In contrast to Cersei, nevertheless, Dany has no such compunction about getting her arms soiled. Whether or not it’s driving atop Drogon or keeping off the undead with a sword in hand, this dragon queen is just not afraid to combine it up. Clearly she’s not shy about collateral injury both, because the collection’ penultimate episode proved Dany doesn’t care who will get harm en path to her final aim. She’s tremendous fierce and possesses terrifying ranges of willpower, however when it comes right down to it, Daenerys Targaryen could also be a conqueror however she’s no fighter.
- Khal Drogo
Now we’re attending to the actual badasses, and there are none on the present who look extra badass than Dany’s lifeless husband – and the namesake for her largest dragon – Khal Drogo. An enormous mountain of a person and a warrior who died having by no means tasted defeat, Aquaman here’s a fierce fighter who has felled males together with his Arakh, twin daggers, his naked arms and a steely gaze. If he have been a bit smarter and didn’t revel within the wounds and scars of his previous battles he might have truly led his khalasar throughout the slender sea alongside his Khaleesi. As is, he went out earlier than his time, and may’t make it previous the 10-spot.
- Jon Snow
Yep, Aegon Friggin Targaryen is simply ninth on this record, and if we’re trustworthy, a whole lot of that is because of plot armor. Don’t get us improper, Jon’s confirmed himself fairly useful with a Valyrian metal sword, however to say that the majority of his victories are the results of blind luck wouldn’t be mistaken. Whether or not he’s being resurrected by a purple priestess who occurs to be chilling out on the Wall or profitable the Battle of the Bastards because of the well timed intervention of his (half) sister, Jon’s the sort of man who rushes into hazard with out considering and it’s value him rather a lot through the years. That he’s nonetheless alive on the finish of the present is nearly totally resulting from his being Azor Ahai, although his preventing expertise don’t harm.
- Oberyn Martell
There are few fighters on the present with as a lot panache and elegance because the Pink Viper, Oberyn Martell. A grasp with each poison AND a spear, the Dornish prince is a stick-and-move fighter, one whose fast actions, juking and parrying assist hold him a step forward of his foes and make him a terror on the battlefield. Sadly, like so many individuals on this listing, Oberyn’s a man whose largest fault is his personal vanity. Confidence is a superb factor to have heading right into a scrap, however once you’ve acquired somebody like The Mountain on the bottom, perhaps simply take the win. Double faucet, man. It’s rule #2. Nonetheless, one-on-one, there are few people who find themselves getting one of the best of Oberyn Martell.
- Ser Brienne of Tarth
The most recent knight within the 7 kingdoms, Ser Brienne of Tarth is among the strongest and quickest fighters in all of Westeros. Proven to carry her personal towards fearsome warriors just like the Hound or Jaime Lannister, Brienne is an adept swordswoman whose energy recreation is in uncommon firm. She loses some factors for an archaic, knightly preventing type that’s too sluggish to match up with sneakier warriors, however her stocky construct and heavy armor make up a whole lot of floor and provides her sufficient leeway to get previous a few of the extra harmful individuals on this record. Nonetheless, Brienne’s a troublesome one, who constantly places her life on the road to make sure the security of the harmless…nicely her costs at the very least. So far as bodyguards, although, you can undoubtedly do worse than Ser Brienne of Tarth.
- Arya Stark
I do know some will say it’s controversial to have the savior of humanity this low on the listing, however Arya Stark’s coaching with the Faceless Males has made her one the deadliest individuals within the Track of Ice and Hearth. Arya is the last word murderer, nimble and fast, able to felling even seemingly invincible opponents and baring little compunction about getting her palms soiled. She’s not afraid to do no matter it takes to attain the kill. Whereas it’s true final week’s episode appeared to suggest that she might have moved previous her all-encompassing lust for revenge, you’re kidding your self in the event you don’t assume homegirl’s received a sure dragon queen in her sights. Together with her biggest power being in subterfuge, she may knock Dany off her newly gained throne.
- Ser Bronn of the Blackwater
Whereas brute power or dazzling velocity could make one a fearsome fighter, there’s one thing to be stated about being a extra intelligent combatant. Ser Bronn of the Blackwater is the slickest, most unscrupulous and trickiest individual on this listing, and that snide set of expertise places him makes him insanely harmful. Nowhere was this clearer than in his star-making flip because the imp-saver, the place he danced round Ser Vardis Egen, making fast work of the Knight of the Vale and utilizing his personal surroundings towards him. It’s that adaptability that makes him one of many biggest fighter’s on the present. Not sure by obligation or honor, Bronn’s the perfect sellsword, which is each a power and a weak spot. Not preventing FOR one thing does weaken his resolve only a bit, however together with his again towards the wall, there could also be none higher than my man Bronn.
- Jaime Lannister
Although he’s spent most of his time on the present as a pressured lefty, Jaime Lannister is undoubtedly one of many biggest warriors in all of Essos. It was a two-handed Jaime who introduced peace to Westeros by killing the Mad King earlier than he had an opportunity to burn King’s Touchdown to the bottom. Within the years since, Jaime has been a gentle hand on the King’s Guard, defending Robert Baratheon from…not a lot if I’m trustworthy. Positive he dominated a duel with Ned Stark and managed to chop down 10 North males earlier than being captured within the Whispering Wooden. Even after dropping a hand, Jaime proved to be no slouch with a sword, and although he was definitely previous his prime when he ultimately returned to King’s Touchdown, at his peak, dude was a beast on the battlefield.
- Sandor “The Hound” Clegane
Talking of beasts, The Hound is 6’6″, 200+ kilos of muscle, hair and a nihilistic angle that makes him a crappy journey companion, however one hell of a pressure with a sword. Whether or not he’s disemboweling can be rapists in King’s Touchdown, hacking via Stannis’ males, or tearing via the Brotherhood with out Banners, there’s little stopping Sandor Clegane from killing his prey. His disfigurement by the hands of his older brother has pushed Sandor to grow to be one of the ruthless and violent males in all of Westeros. Yeah, he’s a little bit of a child with regards to hearth, however his victories over a flaming sword-wielding Beric Dondarion and his brother within the current Clegane bowl, present that when it boils right down to it, Sandor Clegane can get the job carried out.
- Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane
Barring the Night time King and the Dragons, Ser Gregor Clegane is the most important monster on Recreation of Thrones and it’s not even shut. Standing 6’9″ and weighing greater than400 kilos, the person is a literal Mountain of muscle bent on hurting you and everybody you care about. Whereas we talked about Bronn having no actual ethical code, Ser Gregor is pure evil. He’ll gleefully slaughter something and anybody in his path, whether or not they’re swinging a sword or an harmless farm hand. Dude even kills horses in a single swing. The person is so robust that he even managed to (brutally) homicide Oberyn Martell whereas bleeding out and poisoned. You’d assume that his dying can be sufficient to remain his hand, however oh no, Ser Gregor was introduced again to life to function a kind of zombie Darth Vader for the previous few seasons, ultimately culminating in a bloody battle to the dying together with his brother. Nonetheless, whether or not alive or lifeless, nobody is sort of as terrifying and harmful because the Mountain who rides…properly besides perhaps:
- Ser Arthur Dayne
The morning star, the best swordsman of all time, the strongest fighter in Westeros, Ser Arthur Dayne was inhuman. With a single blade in hand, he might take down anybody on this record, however give him TWO and he might run the board all of sudden. Often known as the Morning Star, all of Westeros knew full properly that Dayne was the top of battle prowess, and although he solely confirmed up for one scene within the present, he didn’t disappoint. Taking over Ned Stark, Howland Reed and various Baratheon banner males, Dayne single handedly killed 5 males in a 7-on-1 scrap, and it might have been a full 7 if it weren’t for the Crannogman’s duplicitous again stabbing. Nonetheless, Ser Arthur made brief work of a few of the best knights of his day – and in case you learn a number of the aspect tales within the A Track of the Ice and Hearth prolonged universe his physique rely turns into much more spectacular. Whereas we by no means obtained to see Arthur tackle a lot of the names on this record, there’s not a person, lady or baby who might stand towards him – the strongest warrior in Westeros.
And that’ll do it for our listing. Do you assume we obtained it proper? In all probability not! SO pontificate within the feedback and tell us who YOU assume is the strongest warrior in all of Recreation of Thrones?
