YMMV / Let the Galaxy Burn

Go To

  • Complete Monster:
    • Gregor Clegane is even worse than his canon self in this aspect. As the Tyrant-General of Great Wyk, not only does he indulge his subordinates' most sickening ideas, but he also goes out himself to personally massacre anyone that strikes his fancy. By the time the War of the Ten Warlords begins, the planet's population has gone from 800+ millions to ~170 millions in 10 years - that's more than 170,000 people per day. For comparison:
      • That is Mao Zedong's body count once every 15 months and 4 days.
      • That is Josef Stalin's body count once every 4 1/2 months.
      • That is Adolf Hitler's body count once every 99 days.
      • That is Leopold II of Belgium's body count once every 88 days.
      • That is Enver Pasha's body count once every 15 days,
      • That is Pol Pot's body count once every 10 days.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Robin Arryn betrays his father to the Targaryens, promising to burn him alive in a wildfire pyre and have his sister Alysanne gang raped (by 1,000 men) before having her killed.
  • Nightmare Fuel: During the Battle of Fawnton, multiple shadow demons emerge and attack the loyalist Stormlords, murdering Jon Connnington and his family. Renly and Loras barely escape with their lives.
    • Lord Saltcliffe hears about the return of Victarion Greyjoy, and announces to Ser Lyn Corbray that his occupation is at an end. Corbray's response is to activate every nuclear device implanted under each Saltcliffe settlement.
      • Not to be outdone, Victarion raises the dead on Saltcliffe, and sends them to besiege the loyalists at Fort Forlorn. The resulting battle leads to the complete destruction of the Saltcliffe system.
    • And now Krakens have begun to invade the Iron Sector. For reference, they're capable of surviving in the void like dragons and are large enough to swallow a scout cruiser in one bite.

How well does it match the trope?
