When it comes to Game of Thrones, there's more than enough epic bad-assery to go around. To be honest, if you're born in Westeros, you sort of have to be a badass. There are, however, a few folks who stand out among the badass masses. For various reasons, they've proved themselves to have something special, a j'n'sequois that makes them way more badass then the average badass. Arguably, though, in the game of badassery, there can be only one (to cross-reference from Highlander for a hot second). So who's the biggest badass in Westeros?
In anticipation of the second episode of the new GoT season, we at Insticator thought it would be apropos to try and get to the bottom of this very important question...and what better way to do it than through GIFs? Let's break it down.
Contender #1: TYRION LANNISTER.
He's smart, and knows how to wield his intelligence:
He's overcome obstacles and is a better person for it:
He has a sense of humor
But he's not afraid to be honest...
He has crazy prowess with the ladies
But he's not afraid to fall in love...
Oh, and lest we forget:
Generally, he's just an all-around badass.
Contender #2: DAENERYS TARGARYON
Now that we've got that covered, Daenerys is a total badass for other reasons, too.
She moved against her will to an entirely foreign land, but managed to find her truest self there.
She stood up to her awful, abusive brother
And reacted when he got what was coming to him in the best, most badass of all possible ways:
She turned this guy
Into an adorable mush of love
She's not to be messed with
Most of all, she knows what she wants, and she's damn well going to take it.
Contender #3: ARYA STARK
Arya has been a total badass since the beginning of the show.
She's always heeded important lessons
When her life was in constant peril, she survived against all odds
She was brave beyond what seemed possible, and made dangerous situations her bitch time and time again
And she turned down to opportunity to live a life of adventure with this amazing dude
In conclusion, Arya Stark is a mega badass.
I know I was all "there can be only one" at the beginning of this post, but I honestly don't know how to pick between the three of them. They're all badass in their own equally impressive ways. So for now, i'll call a three-way draw.
There are plenty of other people who could have made it onto this list, but for now, I'm good with my nominations.
Oh.....and I think we can all say for sure who the least badass person in Westeros is.
