* The exclamation "Hodor!" has undergone such MemeticMutation that the OriginStory scene where his younger self shouts "Hold the Door! Hold Door! Hodor! over and over plays out exactly like the TropeNamer [[Series/SixFeetUnder "Numb arm!" Numb arm! Narm!" only about ten times more drawn out, and a few found TheReveal itself to be trite and melodramatic, especially the aggressive cross-cutting for a rather obvious setup.

* In a {{Fanservice}} scene where Theon has sex with Ros, Alfie Allen puts ''a lot'' of effort into his GroaningOrgasm... but the way he jerks around it look like he's just had 1200 volts put through him, which combined with his little beard and how he bites his lip makes him look like an electrocuted rat. And since Alfie isn't at all shy about MaleFrontalNudity, we get to see Theon's penis ''instantly'' deflated once he was done. WTF?

* In an otherwise chilling and well-acted scene where [[spoiler:Viserys]] is bellowing insanely just before his death, it can end up causing some chuckles if you realise his insistence that [[spoiler:he is the dragon]] is awfully reminiscent of the phrase [[spoiler:"Fuck you! I'm a dragon!"]]
* The dogs that play the direwolves are ''not'' very well trained at acting. It's very hard not to laugh when a happy puppy jumps on top of a chew toy and gnaws on it with glee as the CGI blood flies everywhere.
** A particular instance is when Ghost (who is completely silent in the books) is trying to warn Jon Snow that the wights are up and about. The "wolf's" whining and scratching at the door was so dog-like that it seems like Jon should be asking, [[Series/{{Lassie}} "What is it, girl?]] Did Rickon [[TimmyInAWell fall down the well again??"]]
* In Season 1, Littlefinger has an awesome, well-written speech that defines his character extremely well and goes into great detail in explaining his motivations and justifications… Which is completely undercut by the fact that there's hot lesbian sex going on right in front of him that he's supervising while telling his story, which proves to be rather distracting for the audience. Not to forget the infamous command towards one of the prostitutes to another ("'''Play with her arse.'''"), delivered in a completely deadpan and detached tone of voice considering the situation.

* In one {{Fanservice}} scene, Theon is having sex with Ros. Alfie Allen puts ''a lot'' of effort into his ImmodestOrgasm… but it looks like he has had twelve-thousands volts put through him from the way he jerks around in ecstasy, and he bites his lower lip, which, combined with his little beard, makes him look like an electrocuted rat.
** And since Allen isn't shy at all about doing full frontal himself, we get to see that Theon's penis apparently ''instantly'' deflated once he was done. WTF?!

** On this note, a DeletedScene shows handmaiden Doreah strangling Irri to death while reciting "sexy" dialogue about erotic asphyxiation. The logic seems to be that because she's a courtesan, she has to do everything ''sexily''. Including cold-blooded murder. It's worth a few eye-rolls.
*** Indeed, before the DVD came out it was the most anticipated of the four deleted scenes included. After the DVD came out, everyone agreed that it was the worst of the four -- if not the whole series -- and it was a good decision to leave it out. Most people point to the absurdity of the monologue, the fact that Doreah's motives to betray Dany are even ''less'' evident after watching this scene, and Roxanne [=McKee=]'s poor acting through it.

* Daenerys' ArcWords in the Season 5 trailers "I'm not going to stop the wheel. '''I'm going to break the wheel.'''" are either a BadassBoast or… this.
* The Westerosi have a custom of putting stones with painted eyes onto the closed eyelids of the recently deceased. At certain angles it can look pretty goofy, which is certainly the case with Jon Arryn and [[spoiler: Tywin]]'s funerals.
* The deafening silence after Daenerys [[spoiler: orders Mossador's execution]] is fairly creepy, yes, but all the slaves hissing at her kind of destroys the moment. Then the riot Daenerys causes takes it back to NightmareFuel levels.
* Ellaria Sand's anger at the death of Oberyn and her subsequent speech to Doran are quite passionate, but somewhat undercut by this line:
-->"… this Lannister girl skips about the gardens, eating ''our'' food, ''breathing OUR air''!
** Apparently, Myrcella should have stopped breathing in Dorne after Oberyn died. Then she'd be much less offensive.
* Just like Karl above, they seem to have panicked a bit about how to get Obara Sand's backstory across, so out of nowhere she launches into a monologue about her past, to people who already know the whole thing. It's actually pretty reminiscent of Zuko's backstory in ''Film/TheLastAirbender''.
* The Sand Snakes' introduction scene is overall too Narmy with many comparing them to BMovie "Bad Girls" of the kind parodied in ''Film/PulpFiction'' (Fox Force Five). From the aforementioned InfoDump, the needlessly cruel and convoluted torture of the captain (who willingly brought them information), to the youngest Snake behaving like a little girl with her EstablishingCharacterMoment being calling out "mama!" and running to Ellaria, it is a somewhat painful scene to watch.
* A mix-up in the costuming department resulted in the Sand Snakes' breastplates having nipples. The Joel Schumacher jokes pretty much write themselves.
** It's even funnier when you remember a line commonly used in the series is "as useless as nipples on a breastplate".
* The {{fight|SceneFailure}} between the Sand Snakes and Jaime/Bronn is ''appallingly'' cheesy and looks like it was made for an action B-movie. None of the Snakes' actions look fast enough, Obara of the BadassBoast can't even beat a crippled Jaime Lannister and Nym's whipping just seems to be a mild annoyance at worst, and ''[[http://33.media.tumblr.com/0f1bc9fd68fa50d24996bb37d67a600d/tumblr_inline_nokmxtqcuG1rku3fs_540.gif oh good grief Tyene]]''! The conclusion of the fight has the leader of the Snakes essentially give a BadassBoast… then simply throw down her spear when her opponents don't immediately surrender to her.
* ANY time it cuts to Olly Chekov to see his reaction to Jon doing something. Foreshadowing is not subtle in Season 5.
* Ramsay's VillainSue-ness really goes overboard this season; he sabotages and derails Stannis's ''entire'' war effort and storyline with 20 men in an offscreen moment, somehow destroying the food supplies of an army of thousands, their siege weapons, setting fire to tents, and killing and running off hundreds of horses, and not only do they not face ''any'' resistance when carrying out this act, they somehow ''avoid being spotted at all''. This ninja attack is so outlandish that many don't take it seriously and view it as surreal comedy.

* The Sons of the Harpy attack scene in Meereen involves several stages of this.
** The scene devolves into narm before Drogon even shows up. The tension and drama are high right up until the Sons of the Harpy get them surrounded in the middle of the arena, at which point it comes to a screeching halt as the Sons, who had been slaughtering their way through the crowd, immediately degenerate to poking and prodding at Dany's group one at a time only to be cut down by Daario or Jorah in a manner that suggests that had Drogon not shown up, they would have just slowly whittled down the Harpies' numbers.
** When the Sons of the Harpy reveal themselves at the fighting pits, there is an unholy and completely ridiculous piece of chanting music that plays, as if we needed even more indication that these MalevolentMaskedMen are evil. It also brings to mind [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv5NI54QlvI the sacrifice song from South Park]], making it even more unintentionally hilarious.
** Not to mention how ridiculously ''suddenly'' they appear all around the stadium. It's hard to imagine dozens of people simultaneously beginning to put on those huge masks, and neither the other spectators nor the guards notice anything and raise alarm until one of the rebels runs up to the queen and tries to kill her.
** Dany's FaceDeathWithDignity moment was a bit awkwardly directed to time with Drogon's arrival, with the close-up on her closing her eyes coming off to many like we'd fallen into ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' and she was instead summoning Drogon with ThePowerOfLove.
** Daenerys riding Drogon. Despite the best job the special effects can do, Daenerys actually riding a flying dragon nonetheless becomes this. The books were LowFantasy as it is but the show's even less focused on magic, making this turn to HighFantasy look really weird. Also, the numerous large, sharp spines on Drogon's back made some viewers laugh at just how obviously, *ahem*, uncomfortable riding this particular dragon must be. Not to mention how slow Daenerys was with actually ''mounting'' Drogon coupled with the Sons of Harpy not actually doing anything to stop her. Add to that the fact that she's pretty much abandoning her court while their enemies are around. In the books there was no Sons of the Harpy attack, just a mob trying to escape Drogon.
* Ellaria's conversation with Jaime where she empathizes with his romance with Cersei struck many people as downright weird for equating Dorne's EternalSexualFreedom with incest and the scene itself serves no purpose other than to remind us how much of an OpenSecret Jaime's relationship with Cersei is and how "liberal" Dorne is.

to:

* Daenerys' BadassBoast, "I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to ''break'' the wheel!" is laughably vague grandstanding to some. To elaborate, Tyrion gave a detailed assessment of why the powerful lords of Westeros will not support her and how her current troubles in Meereen prove the common people (a power base it's "generous" to presume she has in Westeros) are not enough. She responds by dismissing the powerful as "just spokes on a wheel" she intends to "break", totally disregarding everything Tyrion just explained. Then the scene ends, relieving her from having to explain what she means or how she intends to achieve it.
* The Sons of the Harpy attack scene in Meereen involves several stages of this.
this:
** The scene devolves into narm before Drogon even shows up. The tension and drama are high right up until the Sons of the Harpy get them surrounded in suddenly appear all around the middle stadium as if from BehindTheBlack, with none of the arena, at which point it comes other spectators or guards noticing anything as they all put on those huge masks until after one of them has [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy already tried to a screeching halt as the Sons, who had been slaughtering their way through the crowd, immediately degenerate to poking and prodding at Dany's group one at a time Queen]] (who's only to be cut down saved by Daario or Jorah in a manner that suggests that had Drogon not shown up, they would have just slowly whittled down ''contestant'' on the Harpies' numbers.sand below).
** When the Sons of the Harpy reveal themselves at the fighting pits, there Their appearance is also accompanied by an absurdly unholy and completely ridiculous piece of chanting music that plays, as if we needed even more indication that these MalevolentMaskedMen are evil. It also brings to mind the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv5NI54QlvI the sacrifice song song]] from South Park]], making it even more unintentionally hilarious.
** Not to mention how ridiculously ''suddenly'' they appear all around
Series/SouthPark, as if we needed further proof these MalevolentMaskedMen massacring the stadium. It's hard to imagine dozens of people simultaneously beginning to put on those huge masks, and neither the other spectators nor the guards notice anything and raise alarm populous are evil.
** The tension is high right up
until one Dany's entourage gets surrounded in the middle of the rebels runs up arena, at which point it comes to a screeching halt as the queen Sons of the Harpy, who'd been slicing through the crowd and tries guardsmen like butter, immediately degenerate to kill her.
prodding at Dany's group [[MookChivalry one and a time]] to be cut down by Jorah or Daario in a manner that suggests that Dany's crew could've just slowly whittled the Harpies down.
** Dany's FaceDeathWithDignity moment was a bit awkwardly directed staged to time coincide precisely with Drogon's arrival, with the close-up on her closing her eyes coming off seeming to many like we'd fallen into ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' and she was instead summoning Drogon with ThePowerOfLove.ThePowerOfLove.
** The dragon-riding itself on many levels. Besides the sudden shift into HighFantasy being jarring for some, many of the effects were comically bogus (particularly the utter lack of wind in Dany's hair), not to mention the numerous large spines on Drogon's back that made many giggle at just how, *ahem*, [[GroinAttack uncomfortable]] riding this dragon must be. Then there was how slow and awkward Dany was actually mounting while the Sons of the Harpy apparently [[MookChivalry did nothing to stop her]], and how—rather than attempting to harness Drogon against her enemies—Dany apparently just abandons her entire court to test drive her new ride.
* Ellaria empathizing with Jaime over his relationship with Cersei struck many people as downright weird for equating Dorne's EternalSexualFreedom with incest, and the scene itself serves no purpose beyond reminding us how much of an OpenSecret Jaime and Cersei's love affair is and how "liberal" Dorne is.
* When Jaime reveals to Myrcella that IAmYourFather, one can't help but roll their eyes at Myrcella's declaration (complete with fuzzy, sincere music) that she's ''glad'' to be a bastard born of incest against all the laws of gods and men whose very existence is proof her family has usurped the Iron Throne, a revelation that would have most sane people reaching for the BrainBleach.

** Daenerys riding Drogon. Despite the best job the special effects can do, Daenerys actually riding a flying dragon nonetheless becomes this. The books were LowFantasy as it is but the show's even less focused on magic, making this turn to HighFantasy look really weird. Also, the numerous large, sharp spines on Drogon's back made some viewers laugh at just how obviously, *ahem*, uncomfortable riding this particular dragon must be. Not to mention how slow Daenerys was with actually ''mounting'' Drogon coupled with the Sons of Harpy not actually doing anything to stop her. Add to that the fact that she's pretty much abandoning her court while their enemies are around. In the books there was no Sons of the Harpy attack, just a mob trying to escape Drogon.
* Ellaria's conversation with Jaime where she empathizes with his romance with Cersei struck many people as downright weird for equating Dorne's EternalSexualFreedom with incest and the scene itself serves no purpose other than to remind us how much of an OpenSecret Jaime's relationship with Cersei is and how "liberal" Dorne is. There's quite a difference between free love outside marriage, homosexuality, and incest, and also comes across as CharacterExaggeration of the Dornish.

It also doesn't help the gravity of the scene that Ellaria and the Sand Snakes act all smug afterwards as if they got away with something, even though the ship is ''still in sight of the shore'' and could turn around return for medical attention, attention or revenge, making their actions action hair-pullingly obvious, obvious and therefore it's ridiculous that they believe they could get away with it for more than a day. day.



* The face-peeling scene would've been a very disturbing bit of MindScrew IF they limited it to just two or three faces. With half a dozen, it starts to look like something straight out of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''. In fact, one of the [[Film/ScaryMovie Scary Movies]] did it as well except with actual masks. It looked only slightly sillier than what we saw here. Plus, Arya getting more and more freaked out by every face she pulls off, like she hadn't done the same thing herself earlier in this very episode. It's pretty tempting to shout [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 "Yeah, try it eight more times, maybe it'll work!"]]

* The HumiliationConga that Stannis has to suffer in just one episode: his wife hangs himself, Melisandre flees, his knights desert and so on. Most of it happens offscreen and in a ridiculously short amount of time. You would be forgiven for expecting [[Film/RobinHoodMenInTights Blinkin]] to appear and comment "Oh, it's good to be home, ain't it, Master Stannis?"
** The tragedy of Stannis' FromBadToWorse situation can be undercut (or even cross over into farce) by its UpToEleven nature: the second he finishes hearing awful news, even worse news arrives. It feels like an infomercial… "But wait, there's more!"
* The end of Stannis' HumiliationConga has an added layer, as Brienne declares that she's killing Stannis for his murder of Renly, the rightful king. It's too solemn and untruthful for some to take [[https://scontent-mad1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/s720x720/10485940_697412917071887_1640100858989780483_o.jpg seriously]], as if Stannis needed yet another humiliation before being written off. Although likely in-character given her devotion, it's very jarring and silly because ''no one'', not even Renly or Loras considered Renly the rightful king. And despite the writers trying to make it seem like a dramatic conclusion to Brienne's revenge quest it makes her come across as a massive {{Hypocrite}}, as she is killing someone who clearly had a better claim to the Iron Throne than Renly. Renly was many things, but not the rightful king by any law of the Seven Kingdoms.
** What really cements this is how utterly ''bemused'' Stannis looks, since he [[UnknownRival barely knows]] who Brienne even ''is'', much less what he could have done to earn her hatred. It's only once she launches into her incredibly melodramatic explanation that he understands and seems resigned to it. It's just the cherry on top of the shit-cake his life turned into.
* The battle of Winterfell is too ridiculous to be taken seriously. An entire season of build-up to this very moment. Stannis' theme comes up, Bolton's army approaches, Stannis draws his sword and the armies clash... and 5 seconds later we see Stannis' decimated army and Ramsay once again completely unscathed and basically saying "Okay boys, we're done here, I need to head home so I can get laid".

* Some people find the purple make-up for "Ser Robert Strong"'s face a bit over-the-top.
* In "The Gift", the prison scene between the Sand Snakes and Bronn looks like Tyene is acting like a stripper during her little poison game because she’s holding the prison bars while flirting with Bronn, likewise for flashing her boobs at him. Now all we need is for her to do some pole dancing. Between the gratuitous nudity, FridgeLogic (why would she use slow-acting poison on a mission where she'd fight her fellow Dornishmen? Why is her nudity apparently enough to trigger the poison when fighting wasn't?), and her shift to a completely different personality from what audiences have seen, it's very tough to take it seriously.
* In the finale, Dany trying to go back to Meereen. First, on Drogon. The whole scene looks like a classic comedy scene in [[TheWestern Western]] or HistoricalFiction parodies, when TheHero can't get his horse/donkey/camel to bring him where he wants to go (it's even in Literature/DonQuixote). Then, ''on foot''. Hundreds of riders, who came out of nowhere, start ''orbiting'' around her. It's hard to remain serious watching this piece.
* The season finale on the wall is regarded to be very silly for the sheer number of DashedPlotLine and {{Cliffhanger}} piled one after the other, to a point that momentous events ([[spoiler:such as Stannis' defeat, Sansa's escape, Myrcella's poisoning, Jon's stabbing]]) register with DullSurprise by the end.
* Creator/LenaHeadey was pregnant during filming of the season finale (and has yet to do a nude scene for the show), so (much like Creator/ScarlettJohansson in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'''s action scenes) Cersei's walk of shame is achieved with a combination of close-ups, body double shots where her face is clearly not visible, and occasionally CG-ing her head onto the double.

** A few found TheReveal of [[spoiler:Hodor]] to be trite and melodramatic, especially the rather aggressive cross-cutting at the end for a rather obvious setup. For non-English localizations, the reveal is challenging to translate fluidly since "hold the door" sounds different than Hodor in other languages. Attempts to make it work have been mixed to say the least for example: in Italian, the line was changed to "Trova un modo!" ("Find a way!"). In French and Portuguese, the original line is preserved to its literal translation ("Pas-au dehors" and "Segure a porta") and trying to gradually change it to Hodor placed this trope in full effect. A few of them are detailed [[https://www.reddit.com/r/gameofthrones/comments/4ko0ad/s6e5_i_feel_so_sorry_for_everyone_watching_that/ here]], some are creative, some don't even try.

* Daenerys gets yet another rousing speech in "Blood of My Blood", and while being a visually impressive scene, it barely makes any sense to exist.

* [[spoiler: The exclamation "Hodor!" has become undergone such a meme MemeticMutation that his death the OriginStory scene where his younger self shouts "Hold the Door! Hold Door! Hodor!" repeatedly Hodor! over and over plays out exactly like the classic TropeNamer [[Series/SixFeetUnder "Numb arm! arm!" Numb arm! Narm!"]], Narm!" only about ten times longer.]]

**
For many non-English localizations, speakers, translation also led to some of this since, "Hold the reveal is challenging to translate fluidly since "hold the door" door," sounds ''very'' different than Hodor in other languages. Attempts to make it work have been mixed to say the least for example: in Italian, the line was changed to "Trova un modo!" ("Find a way!"). In French and Portuguese, the original line is preserved to its literal translation ("Pas-au dehors" and "Segure a porta") and trying to gradually change it to Hodor placed this trope in full effect. A few of them are detailed [[https://www.reddit.com/r/gameofthrones/comments/4ko0ad/s6e5_i_feel_so_sorry_for_everyone_watching_that/ here]], some Some are creative, some don't even try. try]]. In Italian, for instance, the line was changed to "Trova un modo!" ("Find a way!"), while the French and Portuguese struggled comically to gradually turn "Pas-au dehors!" and "Segure a porta!" into "Hodor". Germanic languages had an easier time of it, with it since the words being have very common roots, so roots: for instance instance, "Halt das Tor" (German) and "Håll dörren" (Swedish).
* The whole Kingsmoot kingsmoot feels rather ridiculous, as not only do the Ironborn easily get swayed to each side after each speech. Then there is display the fact that none memories of them noticed [[spoiler:Yara goldfish in enthusiastically supporting whoever spoke last, but as a result Euron wins purely through AdHominem attacks on Theon's GroinAttack and Theon stealing use of the entire Iron Fleet]].
word "gallivant" and by saying GladIThoughtOfIt to Yara's fleet-building plan.
** The fact that [[spoiler:Euron Euron openly admits to murdering his brother King Balon and then delivers the line his first act as king is to ask, "Where are my niece and nephew? Let's go murder them!"]]. Isn't kinslaying them!" Aren't kin-slaying and king-slaying meant to be a taboo in Westeros?
** The absurd number of people who FailedASpotCheck to allow Yara and Theon to flee with the entire Iron Fleet, not to mention the FridgeLogic of why they're fleeing at all if they command the loyalty of such a powerful force, instead of simply using it to snuff out Euron or start a CivilWar, since they obviously have no intention of honouring the kingsmoot's verdict anyway.
* Daenerys gets yet another rousing speech in "Blood of My Blood", and while being a Blood" but—while visually impressive scene, it impressive—it barely makes any sense to exist. Aside from the glaring AssPull that is Drogon's suddenly sudden appearance and taming, it comes at a time when she is she's marching with an already-loyal a totally loyal army of Dothraki with no apparent morale problems to speak of. It feels problems, making it feel like Dany she got bored more than anything.



* After leaving the Faceless Men, Arya clearly knows they'll try to kill her for it, yet is quite unbelievably naive in letting a strange woman approach her. And then the Waif just immediately stabs her, bringing up the question of why she even needed a disguise.
* Though it's thankfully never actually said in the show, Septon Ray's name is quite jarringly modern. And then there's his shameless AsYouKnow where he seems to think [[spoiler:Sandor]] needs to be caught up about how he almost died.
** Not helping matters is the fact that "Brother" Ray is another name used for this character. This is liable to make people think more of a [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys table-smashing pro wrestler]] than a repentant religious pacifist…
* While better than the above-mentioned scene, Arya's final showdown with the Waif still has some eye-rolling bits as the Waif casually strolls after her like the Terminator yet is always right behind her like a slasher villain, and after Arya takes the candle out, the show actually tries to drag out the suspense of who won, like anyone could have any doubt even on this show.
** The sheer degree of HollywoodHealing Arya manages throughout the sequence also deserves mention. Between episodes 7 and 8, Arya is stabbed multiple times in the stomach, jumps into an undoubtedly polluted river, staggers through the streets of Braavos, receives treatment from an amateur and one night of rest, manages a high-speed chase on foot, takes several falls from significant heights, rolls down a stone staircase, and reopens her hastily-bandaged stomach wounds, yet at the end of the episode she is able to walk confidently out of the House of Black and White. It's difficult to believe the Waif ever could have killed her, as apparently ''nothing can''.
** Made worst by the amount of ApatheticCitizens during the whole pursuit (bonus point for [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment the men's spa]]), as if nobody cared about two children fighting, parkouring and pushing stuff around.
** The staircase scene. Arya rolls down a ridiculous number of steps, and hits ''every single fruit basket'' on the way down. Not only does it feel like something out of a cartoon (with cries of "My basket!" from the distraught townspeople likely reminding ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fans of a certain cabbage merchant), but it honestly looks like Arya did it on purpose.
* The death of Lady Crane, with Arya discovering her body with a pair of blunt stool legs stuck through her shoulders. Even if you buy that the Waif could have somehow done it, it still clearly wouldn't have killed her.
* The blatant change of wording from "trebuchet" to its kinda-sorta-maybe synonym "catapult" in the show's version of Jaime's much-loved threat to Edmure Tully reeks of ViewersAreMorons. That Bronn offhandedly calls them "trebuchets" in the previous episode only makes the line seem even more comically reductive.

How does Ellaria call out Varys? By ringing a bell. A bell which made it looked like she's calling the waiter to bring in some pizza.

Fair enough, except for some reason the writers just copy-pasted Varys' lines about how the victim doesn't deserve this and he regrets having to do it to further his plans, which don't fit the new situation or characters well at all, especially since singling out Pycelle to be sidetracked from the upcoming bombing of the Great Sept makes it seem [[ItsPersonal very personal]].

* In Season 1, Littlefinger has an awesome, well-written speech that defines his character extremely well and goes into great detail in explaining his motivations and justifications... Which is completely undercut by the fact that there's hot lesbian sex going on right in front of him that he's supervising while telling his story, which proves to be rather distracting for the audience. Not to forget the infamous command towards one of the prostitutes to another ("'''Play with her arse.'''"), delivered in a completely deadpan and detached tone of voice considering the situation.

* The location scouts did a very good job with Dorne... but the Alcazar of Seville is such a well known landmark, and its architecture and decor are so stereotypical Moorish Andalusian, that some locals find their suspension of disbelief shattered to pieces whenever Dorne appears.

* In the finale, Dany trying to go back to Meereen. First, on Drogon. The whole scene looks like a classic comedy scene in [[TheWestern Western]] or HistoricalFiction parodies, when TheHero can't get his horse/donkey/camel to bring him where he wants to go (it's even in Literature/DonQuixote). Then, ''on foot''. Hundreds of riders, who came out of nowhere, start ''orbiting'' around her. Hard to remain serious watching this piece.

* In the Season 6 premiere, the entire Night's Watch outside the conspiracy to [[spoiler:kill Jon]] is exactly as outraged as you'd expect... until the vast majority are completely talked around on it after just a couple minutes of Thorne speechifying. Also not helping is how the camera keeps cutting to Olly despite him contributing nothing at all to the scene, like we might just forget about his existence.

* The entire fact that the remaining Jon loyalists in Season 6 consist of Davos, Edd... and a few other random guys. You can just imagine the writing team's MassOhCrap upon realizing that maybe they shouldn't have killed off Pyp and Grenn when they did.
* Ramsay's grief for Myranda almost makes you feel sorry for his loss, if mourner and mournee weren't such despicable characters. What happens next can only be summarized as ''"Ok, that's enough humanizing for today, back to business!"'' when Ramsay orders her body to be butchered for meat.
* It's hard to take Khal Moro seriously as a new antagonist when his first attempt to be intimidating turns into a MontyPython sketch.
* The messages scrawled on the walls of Meereen that say, "KILL THE MASTERS" and "MHYSA IS A MASTER" not only look like terribly out-of-place graffiti penned by a modern hand, but FridgeLogic makes them even more nonsensical. They're written in Westerosi (i.e. English) in a place where the dominant language is Valyrian and the majority of the population is illiterate.

* The High Sparrow and Jaime's encounter in the sept. Jaime confesses to his face more sins than all the imprisoned named characters combined are accused of (heck, The High Sparrow arrested Margaery for allegedly covering for her brother's homosexuality and thinks that her ''not being without sin'' is a good reason to keep her imprisoned), and they are surrounded by armed Sparrows. The High Sparrow keeps babbling about gods-fearing and overthrowing empires... and then just leaves, without any interest in arresting Jaime.

* Bran is upset about being pulled away from his PensieveFlashback before learning the secret of the Tower of Joy, even demanding to know the answer, which is understandable, as perhaps is his mentor's refusal... if said mentor didn't end the scene by proclaiming, "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. must. learn.]] [...] everything!" Except what's in that tower, apparently...
* By Season 6, Ramsay Bolton (née Snow)'s life of endless dog-kicking just gets more and more laughable. The writers go out of their way to have him be so very evil and aim for cheap shocks that it loses all meaning and each subsequent kick just winds up hilarious. It basically amounts to a game for viewers to see what he's going to do next.

** A few found TheReveal of Hodor to be trite and melodramatic, especially the rather aggressive cross-cutting at the end for a rather obvious setup. For non-English localizations, the reveal is challenging to translate fluidly since "hold the door" sounds different than Hodor in other languages. Attempts to make it work have been mixed to say the least for example: in Italian, the line was changed to "Trova un modo!" ("Find a way!"). In French and Portuguese, the original line is preserved to its literal translation ("Pas-au dehors" and "Segure a porta") and trying to gradually change it to Hodor placed this trope in full effect. A few of them are detailed [[https://www.reddit.com/r/gameofthrones/comments/4ko0ad/s6e5_i_feel_so_sorry_for_everyone_watching_that/ here]], some are creative, some don't even try. Germanic languages had an easier time of it, with the words being very common roots, so for instance "Halt das Tor" (German) and "Håll dörren" (Swedish).

** Not helping matters is that "Brother" Ray is another name used for this character. This is liable to make people think more of a [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys table-smashing pro wrestler]] than a repentant religious pacifist...

** The sheer degree of HollywoodHealing Arya manages throughout the sequence also deserves mention. Between episodes 7 and 8, Arya is stabbed multiple times in the stomach, jumps into an undoubtedly polluted river, staggers through the streets of Braavos, receives treatment from an amateur and one night of rest, manages a high-speed chase on foot, takes several falls from significant heights, rolls down a stone staircase, and reopens her hastily-bandaged stomach wounds, yet at the end of the episode she is able to walk confidently out of the House of Black and White. It's difficult to believe the Waif ever could have killed her, as apparently ''nothing can.''

* The forces of the Vale coming out of nowhere to save the Stark alliance out of nowhere at ''exactly'' the moment things are at their most hopeless. You almost expect Aidan Gillen to chime in with some narration about "[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings looking to the east]]"... dodgy accent being optional.
* Jon Snow and his army must be made up of the fastest sprinters in Westeros, as not even a minute passes after Ramsay arrives in Winterfell on horseback, before Jon's army starts breaking down the gate. It looks even more strange that the none of the Vale knights participate in the final siege, in spite of actually possessing horses.

Added DiffLines:

* Brienne's [[http://watchersonthewall.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/brienneNO_600.gif goofy face]] and shrieking when Renly is killed by one of Melisandre's shadow assassins. Speaking of which, while Gwendolyn Christie gives good performances her bellowing during fight scenes in general can make her hard to take seriously.

* Remember Wun Wun as a OneManArmy, whacking wights left, right and center with a huge log at Hardhome? Cherish those memories, you will need them to counterweight the embarrasing shots of him pathetically waving his ''naked'' arms at the Bolton infantry and being generally useless.
** When Jon mounts his horse, certain viewers can spot that his sword is [[https://media.giphy.com/media/xT8qB2C54Mwfovy9SE/giphy.gif more flexible than it should be.]]

** Possibly justified in that the final scene is probably a mildly DistantFinale, given that the same episode also contained an earlier time skip long enough for Olenna to go through several of the stages of mourning and then travel to Dorne, and also for Jaime to get home from The Twins.
* After Ellaria made such a big deal about how she was killing Doran because of his refusal to take any action against the Lannisters, it's quite weird that she proceeds to disappear for the rest of the season, not doing anything herself until Varys arrives to get her ass in gear.
** How does Ellaria call out Varys? By ringing a bell. A bell which made it looked like she's calling the waiter to bring in some pizza. Since when is Varys, the Spider and former Master of Whisperers, treated like Ellaria’s personal butler?
