Daenerys Targaryen Who? Hodor Is The Real Star Of Game Of Thrones

A very close look at the biggest badass on HBO’s Game of Thrones

Daenerys Targaryen is the Khaleesi of the Dothraki, widow of major badass Khal Drogo, and has a major claim to the Iron Throne of Westeros.


She is also the mother of three dragons: Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion.



The dragons are now fully grown and they won’t let anyone hurt Daenerys. If anyone tries to (the way the Warlock of Qarth tried to), all Dany has to say is “Dracarys” (“Fire” in High Valyrian), and shit gets real.


Daenerys is now the commander of 8000 Unsullied warriors. The Unsullied kill puppies as part of their training. They are not to be messed with.


And then there is Daenerys’ badass posse.

Her new boy toy assassin is secretly an underwear model, and her handmaiden is a CoverGirl on the side. Don’t believe it? Just LOOK at them!

And let’s not forget, Dany made eating horse meat ‘fetch’ way before Burger King ever did.

Yep. Daenerys is a total boss.


There is no doubt that Daenerys Targaryen is the new Lara Croft. There is only one other person in all of Westeros whose awesomeness surpasses that of Dany’s. And that person is responsible for single-handedly creating the next greatest household name since Madonna.


Bran Stark’s ward, Hodor is one of the best-loved characters in the GoT fandom. Hodor has hitherto survived George Martin’s Russian roulette of killing fan favorites while Ned, Robb, and Catelyn Stark did not.


Hodor’s various enunciations of his own name have gone viral and are a cultural phenomenon in their own right; so much so that the episodes build up to make it seem like he is about to say something, anything else. But it’s always the same glorious word.

Some people may sideline Hodor as a dimwit, but his one-word response to every situation makes him one of the biggest badasses in all the Seven Seas.


Some people think Hodor is actually a Pokémon:


And some people believe that walking without Hodor carrying you around is no life at all:


Urban Dictionary defines Hodor as:

Pocket monster or pedestrian accessory, we know what Hodor really is: he is awesome! Make room, Daenerys. We all know Hodor is the real star of Game of Thrones.
