The characters on the best Game of Thrones posters are all uniquely flawed. Tyrion is charming and witty, but should you really be rooting for him?
One of the best parts of Game of Thrones is the wide variety of unique and interesting characters. All of them have their flaws, but many of them manage to be charming despite it all. A noticeable example of this is Tyrion Lannister, who has become the darling of fans everywhere. His face is on all the best Game of Thrones posters, too. But should you really be rooting for Tyrion?
The beauty of the characters George R. R. Martin writes is that they all have believable human flaws. Tyrion is a lively character, but there is quite a bit of misogyny and hatred hidden within his heart. These feelings are arguably a product of his upbringing, but that doesn’t necessarily excuse them.
Tyrion’s treatment of Shea is one of the bigger indicators of this. Between the perspectives shown in the books and in the show, it’s clear that Tyrion does not view her as much more than a possession, albeit one that he adores. That’s not even getting into the fact that he ultimately murders her in cold blood.
Despite that and the many other less than moral things Tyrion has done, he continues to be a fan favorite. Is it all because of Peter Dinklage’s stellar performance of the character, or something else? Looking past all of Tyrion’s flaws and questionable acts, the truth is that he is a believably flawed and unique character. He has a quick wit that makes his chapters in the books easy to read. In the show, Dinklage’s performance brings the character to life and makes him even more charming and amusing.
Love or hate Tyrion Lannister, the fact remains that he continues to hit it out of the park as a fan favorite. If you’re looking for some of the best Game of Thrones posters available, we’ve compiled a great list of them – with and without Tyrion, depending on your preference.
