*** This hasn't let up at ''all'' since Seasons 5 and 6 either. In the former, Cersei essentially has complete, unlimited control of King's Landing and runs the entire city into the ground and loses her control to a dangerous enemy through sheer incompetence. To rectify this error in Season 6, Cersei [[spoiler: ''blows up'' an enormous amount of King's Landing including everyone with political power in the Great Sept of Baelor. The sequence even vaguely resembles 9/11. [[SarcasmMode Yes, a queen her blows up her own citizens is certainly ideal.]]]]

*** In the same episode, Rickon [[spoiler:is sent running to Jon as Ramsey shoots arrows at him. And even when they start coming down, he continues running in a dead straight line, rather than the zigzag motion every fox and deer knows. Naturally, he doesn't make it.]]

** Renly Baratheon's AdaptationalHeroism was also intended to make him the "right man" in his contest against Stannis but the story still has Renly asserting to be King by force of arms rather than PopularityPower, and likewise leaves unaddressed Robb Stark's defense of the SuccessionCrisis as well as the consequences of his actions. Renly and Loras' dismissal of Stannis for his "personality of a lobster" and his churlish attacks on Stannis' character during the parley makes him even more unsympathetic especially in light of the 2016 Elections where such personal AdHominem insults and attacks are no longer considered funny and cool.

Also there's the fact that despite the criticism Stannis gets for killing Renly, Renly makes it clear he intends to kill Stannis, meaning that rather then a villainous murder, his death can seem like a vain traitor being killed in self-defence.

** Daenerys Targaryen. Some fans see her as a kind-hearted character who began the series as a victim of abuse and [[CharacterDevelopment eventually]] becomes a MagnificentBastard with the strongest claim to the throne [[http://whatwouldkhaleesiwear.tumblr.com/ and a really fancy wardrobe]]. Others find her incompetent, overrated, and her lines to be full of {{Narm}}. There are also different opinions on how much of this is either the fault of the writers or Emilia Clarke's acting.

** After Dany's story in Season 5 had so much focus on finding the leader of the Harpies, the end of the storyline in Season 6 indicates that they never had an actual leader and were just a general bunch of malcontents. Thanks for the wasted screentime.

** Many fans can't begin to imagine how Emilia Clarke (see Base-Breaking Character below) or Peter Dinklage (who is universally agreed to be excellent, but didn't have much to do) received nominations for Season 5 while Stephen Dillane, Alfie Allen, and Kit Harrington received almost no attention. [[spoiler: And like many before Dillane, this was potentially his last chance to be nominated for Game of Thrones.]]

** As of Season 6, Emilia Clarke has {{inverted}} this. As fans complain again and again about countless deserving actors being snubbed, she is consistently given nominations despite the fact that a portion of the fanbase is very critical of her acting. In addition, those who do like her acting tend to agree that [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter Clarke is rarely given a good opportunity to show off her skills]], instead being relegated to dull, filler storylines with weak directing.

** If you're a fan of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', chances are you're also a fan of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', particularly the show itself. A sizable portion of ''Skyrim'''s library of Game Mods is devoted to adding ''Game of Thrones''-related content to the game ・there is more than one mod that adds a fully-modeled Longclaw, for example.

** In the third episode of the second season, Lord Varys tells Tyrion a riddle. Anyone with a background in political science (especially in international relations) will recognize Varys' answer as a down-and-dirty explanation of the constructivist school of thought. [[spoiler:Xaro Xhoan Daxos' empty vault]] is a second example of the illusory nature of power.
