Game of Thrones has had more than its fair share of memorable characters. Even though the death-happy George R.R. Martin has managed to kill off many of the ones we’ve loved — and loved to hate— there’s no denying that some characters stand out better in our memory than others.
With the premiere of Season 6 this weekend, we thought we’d celebrate with a bracket tournament that asks the ultimate question: which Game of Thrones character, dead or alive, is your absolute favorite? This isn’t about who could beat who in a fight or who is most likely to rule over Westeros — it’s a popularity contest, plain and simple.
If you need to be refreshed on who some of these characters are, check out the character page on the Game of Thrones Wiki!
