    The Definitive Ranking Of "Game Of Thrones" Villains

    Not all villains were created equal.

    Game of Thrones is full of good characters who do bad things, and bad characters who turn out to have some good in them. In other words, there's a whole lot of grey, so the "villains" aren't entirely clear cut for the most part. Still, there are a bunch of characters who do fit into the category in one way or another. What better way to look back at them than to rank them from worst (hate to hate) to best (love to hate)...
