    Fictional Men From The Fantasy Genre, Ranked By How Much Angsty Brooding They Bring To The Screen

    So. Much. Angst.

    If you're a fan of fantasy television, the moment is now. We've been spoiled with epic series by way of House of the Dragon and Rings of Power, which feature every nerdy element we could ever wish for: drama, dragons, battles, and angsty warriors who are plagued with the weight of the world.

    Because every good story in this genre has a brooding man who simply can't be bothered to smile, I'm ranking these stoic souls from "sometimes brooding" to "literally couldn't stop brooding if he tried" (looking at you, Jon Snow).

    11. Westley (The Princess Bride)

    10. Jaime Fraser (Outlander)

    9. Aragorn (The Lord of the Rings)

    8. Ser Criston Cole (House of the Dragon)

    7. Edward Cullen (Twilight)

    6. Arondir (Rings of Power)

    5. Thorin Oakenshield (The Hobbit)

    4. Zuko (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

    3. Anakin Skywalker (Star Wars)

    2. Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher)

    1. Jon Snow (Game of Thrones)
