What’s poppin’, y’all? I know Game of Thrones‘ sixth season has ended, but I’m quite sure some of y’all have been going through withdrawals. With that being said, I decided to do a Game of Thrones Top 10 list, and what better way to do it than to name off the top 10 psychos on the show! I mean, let’s face it, a lot of the characters on Game of Thrones aren’t particularly balanced. Let’s hop to it! By the way…do y’all like my house sigil?
10. Sandor “The Hound” Clegane
I know what y’all are thinkin’, “What’s The Hound doing on this list?” Now I know that all of y’all love The Hound; I love him, too. However, you have to admit that he’s a bit psychotic. I can see why, though. If my brother burned half my face for playing with one of his favorite toys, I’d be a bit off myself. Yes, deep down The Hound is a good man, but he actually enjoys killing. Remember when he told either Sansa or Arya (I can’t remember which one it was) that killing was the most wonderful thing in the world and that Ned enjoyed it, too? Every time I watched Ned—or even Jon—kill someone, it was a necessary evil, but they got no enjoyment from it. Only The Hound finds glee in murder. Unless it’s folks gettin’ burned to death, of course.
9. Euron Greyjoy
That’s right, number nine is the king of the Iron Islands and the king of dick jokes himself, Euron Greyjoy! It’s true that he just joined the cast this season, but right out of the gate, he proved himself to be an A1 nut! First he killed his brother, proved himself to be obsessed with Theon’s no-longer-existing dick, and then uttered his famous phrase, “Where’s my niece and nephew? Let’s go murder them!” Cu-koo!
8. Walder Frey
He flirts with chicks young enough to be his granddaughters, he murders entire families at social functions, and always appears to be constipated! The number eight spot goes to none other than ratchet ass Walder Frey! Anyone that can watch folks get slaughtered at a wedding and get years of enjoyment from it (not to mention the fact that he imprisoned his son-in-law for God knows how many years after the massacre) is a pure psycho!
7. Cersei Lannister
Cersei was always a bitch, but she crossed into pure psychotic territory during the sixth season finale. When a monarch commits mass genocide (and let’s not forget, she blew up a church!) in her own kingdom and smiles with joy, it proves that she isn’t playing with a full deck. Plus, there were her past deeds: trying to kill Tyrion, sleeping with Jaime (ill!), not caring when Jaime pushed Bran out the window, etc. Hell, in the books, she murdered one of her close friends because the latter had a crush on Jaime! With an ally like her, who needs enemies?
6. Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes
These ladies are so hellbent on revenge, they don’t care who they take out to get it, and if you’re not with them, you’re damn sure against them. I get Ellaria and the crew being pissed at Cersei, but why kill Myrcella? She was completely innocent! Why kill Prince Doran and his son for (wisely) not wanting to wage war? Let’s not forget how the youngest Sand Snake (her name escapes me) poisoned Bronn just for shits and giggles. A family full of fools, indeed.
5. Meryn Trant
Meryn Trant was an arrogant, murderous pedophiliac who got his rocks off on following Joffrey’s sick orders and beating up little girls under the age of 14. I cheered out loud when Arya messed his ass up. Talk about just desserts! The only reason this dude isn’t higher on the list because there’s much, much worse people on Game of Thrones. You have to have a strong will and thick skin to enjoy this show.
4. Lysa Arryn
Lord, have mercy. Lysa Arryn was the epitome of batshit crazy. Considering that she’s the one that poisoned her husband and sent that letter to Ned Stark implicating the Lannisters for his murder, it’s possible to say that her actions put all the horrible events in the show into motion (Ned wouldn’t have gone to King’s Landing if the former Hand of the King—Lysa’s husband—hadn’t been murdered). Some of Lysa’s favorite pastimes included dropping people to their death (which makes it fitting that she was killed the same way), obsessing over Littlefinger, and allowing her nine year old son to be breastfed. Did I mention that she was a horrible parent, too? Lysa was single-handedly responsible for raising the most spoiled and useless child on the face of the Earth, and I’ve seen some bad ones, boo.
3. Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane
The Hound made it on to the list, but his big brother, The Mountain, is waaaaaaay crazier than he is. As I said earlier, The Mountain is basically the reason The Hound is on this list in the first place. Much like Meryn Trant, he found joy in carrying out The Lannisters’ dirty deeds (i.e. raping and killing women and children), but he’d also go after anyone and everyone that pissed him off. He tried to kill Loras Tyrell once for beating him fair and square during a game of joust. And of course, there was that time he crushed Oberyn Martell’s skull (the very act that turned Ellaria and the Sand Snakes into vengeful nuts). To add insult to injury, ever since he’s become a reanimated corpse, he’s gotten even crazier! Smashing people’s heads, raping nuns…move over, Hannibal Lector!
2. Joffrey Baratheon
Now y’all know the king we all loved to hate was gonna be on this list! Joffrey was a spoiled rotten young king that thrived on torture and humiliation. He didn’t care who felt his wrath: his uncle, his fianceé, his future father-in-law, innocent animals, random folks in King’s Landing, or some hoes that just wanted to show him a good time. The very first episode of Game of Thrones I ever watched was “The Lion and the Rose” (the episode with “The Purple Wedding”), and I witnessed what an asshat Joffrey was. I couldn’t say I was too upset—or shocked—when he was poisoned to death at the end of the episode. Hell, I laughed out loud!
1. Ramsay Bolton
Real talk, if you were surprised Ramsay made the number one spot, you must be a new fan. Ramsay is on a whole ‘nother level of insanity that even Joffrey’s spoiled, maniacal ass can’t touch. Even Joffrey had a limit to his craziness. Ramsay, on the other hand, had no chill. He killed his dad, his step mother, and even his 10 minute old newborn brother! Like Joffrey, he got off on torture, but he took it a step further than beatings and using folks for crossbow practice. He cut off appendages and peeled the skin off people. He raped and used psychological torture. We have Ramsay to thank for Euron’s never ending dick jokes and for Theon being the poster child for PTSD. What made Ramsay even scarier than Joffrey is the fact that Ramsay was actually intelligent, whereas Joffrey was a vicious idiot. Ramsay used his insanity and mind games to his advantage, and he came out on top just about every time…until Jon beat his ass and Sansa turned him into Dog Chow.
