Game of Thrones is is known for savagely offing characters in the most cruel and unusual ways. Here, we've ranked 37 deaths on the show from least to most traumatizing.
One of the most satisfying (and least upsetting) moments of the show's seventh season was when Sansa announced that it was Littlefinger who was on trial rather than Arya. The death that followed was pure poetic justice.
After five seasons of Ramsay flaying, stabbing, mutilating, violating and manipulating his fellow citizens of Westeros, we were more than ready to see him go. His death was more gleeful than gut-wrenching for most.
Cersei tapped into the Mad King's stash of wildfire to blow up a room full of enemies, including the High Sparrow and Margaery Tyrell. The explosion wiped out a lot of people, but was rather impersonal, so it's down here at No. 27.
Viserys was really into a gold crown, so Khal Drogo granted his wish, dumping a hot cauldron of molten gold on his head. It looked painful, but at least we only had to listen to him scream "I am the dragon" for six episodes.
18. Myrcella Baratheon: Poisoned by the Sand Snakes
Jaime and Myrcella shared a touching father-daughter moment during which Myrcella said that she was glad she was inbred. Seconds later, her nose started bleeding and she collapsed, poisoned to death by Ellaria Sand.
Theon has come a long way since betraying the Starks and pretending to burn Bran and Rickon. Bran snapped out of his warg coma to tell Theon, "you're a good man," shortly before Theon ran guts-first into the Night King's sword.
Lyanna Mormont went out like she walked into this series, not taking an ounce of nonsense from anyone -- not even a zombified giant. The tiniest soldier was crushed like a peanut shell, but not before she pierced the outsize wight in the eye with a Dragonglass spear.
6. Everyone at the Red Wedding: Surprise stabbing attack
Walder Frey took out a large portion of House Stark at the wedding of his daughter to Edmure Tully. Innocent throats were slit. People were stabbed. The whole gory sequence lasted eight minutes and felt a whole lot longer.
