** Brienne of Tarth has become highly divisive in the show for a large number of reasons. On a sheer surface level, there's debate whether her character is a strong, believable, compelling ActionGirl or disingenuous and unrealistic feminist pandering (and, [InternetBackdraft seeing as starting this debate will often lead towards both sides insulting the other]], [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment it would be best to leave the discussion here]]
*** In terms of her character proper, fans are highly divided on just how heroic she is. Supporters note her UndyingLoyalty towards both Renly and the Starks, her compassionate treatment and relationship with [[UnpopularPopularCharacter Jaime Lannister]], and how {{Badass}} she is. Her detractors are, primarily, fans of Stannis who feel that she [[spoiler: unjustly murdered Stannis, arguing that Renly was a traitor who was unworthy of being avenged and that, while Stannis had gone past the MoralEventHorizon when he [[OffingTheOffspring burned his daughter alive]], Brienne had no way of knowing about this)]]. In addition, while both Book and Show Brienne are hardened warriors, Show!Brienne has more JerkAss tendencies due to living longer and having a higher degree of cynicism, which they find offputting (while her fans see it as both believable and compelling)

** Theon's story in Season 3. Rather than let the character disappear for a while and insinuate what happened to him in the intervening time, the show portrays the events and stretches them over an entire season. This was a pragmatic decision so that the actor and character didn't just disappear for a season, but people still got bored and then agonized by the requisite 'What horrible thing is Ramsay doing to Theon ''this'' episode?' scenes. This also applies in S6, where Ramsay's repeated atrocities don't really add anything to the story (such as his murder of Osha), especially as he is possibly dead at this point in the books.

** Shireen Baratheon and Rickon Stark, even though they don't share screentime together, are very popular with shippers, possibly due to them both being TheWoobie and Shireen being a LonelyRichGirl.
