* Barristan Selmy's got himself quite a loyal following as well considering his MemeticBadass and straight up {{badass}} traits. He even pulled off an amazing comeback scene in the Season 3 premiere [[spoiler: when he saved Dany's life from a Manticore]].

* Stannis himself has a growing number of fans who absolutely adore him and consider him the person most fit to rule Westeros. Not only did he prove himself a grade-A [[{{Badass}} badass]] during the Battle of Blackwater, but he was the only Great Lord to send aid to the Wall when it was being threatened by the Wildlings and the White Walkers. Feats like these have earned him the nickname "Stannis the Mannis" to many fans. A lot of people are quite upset by his AdaptationalVillainy in the series. However, the touching scenes between him and his daughter are very well-liked in a series that has a lot of dysfunctional families. [[spoiler: Although the final two episodes of Season 5 split his fanbase clean in half...]]

* Thoros of Myr is already being called the Game of Thrones version of [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] , what with his rather carefree {{cloud cuckoo lander}} attitude and outlandish approach to greeting Arya, Hot Pie, and Gendry. Also helps within a span of about five seconds he demonstrates what an amazing swordsman he is when he casts aside Arya's suspicions he's just a silly drunk and not good with a sword at all.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
