The Night King
As the first ever White Walker created by the Children of the Forest to defend them against the First Men’s invasion, The Night King (or Night’s King) is the apparent leader of the frozen hordes of undead demons that reside north of the Wall, carrying with him the ability to create White Walkers with a single touch. His full abilities and powers are unknown, but his encroaching legion of zombies is the “winter” that’s been coming all these years, creating an epic evil that overshadows all the petty squabbles of man.

Deevona Quadros's Album: Game of Thrones Characters

DESCRIPTION : The night is dark and full of terrors, and so is the prospect of narrowing down the Top 100 characters on Game of Thrones. Few TV series in the past decade have had quite the cultural impact as HBO’s hit fantasy drama, and few characters have become as entrenched in pop culture as the Starks, the Lannisters and, of course, Daenerys Targaryen. But which GoT characters will endure the test of time as the greatest the TV show has to offer? We gathered together IGN’s Small Council to determine which of the series’ vast array of characters will make the Top 100. Who will win this Iron Throne? Continue reading to find out. The criteria we examined: The character's active participation in the story, and influence on the narrative and significance in the show. How great or memorable a character is as a combination of strong writing, a standout performance and impact on the legacy of Game of Thrones. For the purposes of this ranking: Characters were judged on their merit only from their roles in the TV show, not George R.R. Martin’s novels. Animals -- cute cats, dragons, direwolves or otherwise -- were not included in this list. Sorry, Ser Pounce fans.
