* Oberyn Martell's paramour Ellaria Sand also won over fans as one of the show's prime examples of flawless casting in Creator/IndiraVarma and her abundance of [[MsFanservice exotic fan service]] she brings. [[spoiler: Sadly, this has evaporated in Season 5, thanks to her AdaptationalVillainy, and especially following one specific MoralEventHorizon that's unique to the show.]]

* Doran Martell is praised by many as the one good thing to come out of Season 5's much-despised Dorne storyline, with several great lines and a subdued but quite effective performance from Alexander Siddig. Being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure who can be kind yet still rule effectively, in a world populated by good people who end up suffering or selfish bastards helps. This is doubly impressive as (at least as far as we've seen) he's also a pretty severe AdaptationalWimp, with his role as TheChessmaster completely removed.

[[spoiler:Fans were at uproar when he was killed off by former EnsembleDarkhorse now Scrappy Ellaria Sand in the Season 6 premiere and most of his vengeful and scheming qualities are given to her]].

* Daario Naharis, Daenaerys' sellsword-come-lieutenant/lover for much of the same reasons as Bronn, thanks to his blunt sarcasm, total badassery, and genuinely [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sweet]] relationship with Dany.

* Lyanna Mormont, the BadassAdorable, ten-year old Lady of Bear Island, after she held her own against Jon, Sansa, and Davos in negotiating the Mormonts' participation in the quest to retake Winterfell. Viewers already anticipated her appearance after her sternly worded letter to Stannis Baratheon in Season 5.

** Her popularity seems to have gone through the roof after she [[spoiler: declares Jon to be the second King in the North]]

* Smalljon Umber, despite suffering a severe case of AdaptationalVillainy, is adored for his single scene where most of his dialogue consists of calling Roose Bolton a cunt to RAMSAY'S FACE while implicitly mocking him for the obvious way Ramsay killed him and refusing to swear fealty to the Bolton's, only allowing an alliance if the Umbers can work on equal terms with them. And he does all this while smirking.

* The Spice King of Qarth's 13 gained a small following as evident by a following on Facebook that went as far to hold a memorial event page for him. It helps that not only is he a humorous and interesting character (for a character not even from the books), but for those that don't like Daenerys he provides an in-universe outlet of understandable criticism of her attitude and actions and all in the most polite and reasonable manner.

* Arthur Dayne's absolutely epic LastStand is his single scene, but he demonstrates such mindblowing fencing skills that even the most skeptic viewer was instantly awed.

* While he vanished very early on, many people like Benjen Stark and there has been much speculation on what his ultimate fate was. [[spoiler: Then Season 6 came along and it turns out Benjen has become a badass Human/Wight hybrid. People are quite happy to say the least.]]
