Lord Tyrion's 5 Best Moments from Game of Thrones

Lord Tyrion's 5 Best Moments from Game of Thrones


Hey! It's Dan with Anime Ape. Although GOT ended a few weeks ago, I don't think any of us can stop thinking about it.

Jon only had 3 lines? Bran's on the throne? Davos made it to the end of the show? 

Let's ignore this for now and focus on when the writers actually portrayed the cleverest man on the show as, well, clever. Tyrion was never a disappointment to watch or listen to, but there are certainly moments that outshine most.

5. Slapping the S#!t Out of Joffery 

Re-watching the show from start to finish after finding out what a POS Joffery was really makes me appreciate all of the times he was pimp-slapped by our favorite imp, but the first on-screen slap from Season 1 takes the cake.

What makes it even better is The Hound watching in the back totally indifferent, probably thinking to himself, "Look at those tiny, winging cunts."

Let's not forget the second best time Tyrion put Joffery in his place, saying “And now I've struck a king! Did my hand fall from my wrist?!”

4. Tricking Cersei Into Thinking She Had Captured His Lover 

This makes Tyrion clever on many levels.

First, he made Cersei believe that she actually had found the woman he loved, saving his true lover Shae in the process.

Second came the double-edged promise Tyrion made about revenge, saying “I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you're safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. Then you will know the debt is paid.” This was an effort to deter her from crossing him again, although we all know how that panned out.

3. The Battle of Blackwater Bay

Without Tyrion's quick thinking and rallying a city of people who hated Joffery to fight for him, King's Landing would have certainly succumbed to Stannis' forces.

This scene showcased the bravery and the true Lannister Lion that Tyrion was. Regardless of his size, he has proven time and time again that his courage overshadows most men of regular height.

Plus we got the classic Hound quote, "F$%k the King."

2. Trial of the Kingslapper 

Some of Tyrion's best quips come from his unjust and biased trial.

Out of an emotional and vengeful rage, Cersei uses the death of her son as justification to try to finally kill her little brother. Although she stacked the odds against him as high as she could, he still managed to sneak away to Essos thanks to the help of Jaime and Varys.

This escapade across the narrow sea brought us the great Tyrion quote of, "Do you know what it's like to stuff your shit thru one of those airholes?"

1. Hell Hath No Fury Like an Imp Scorned 

The righteous, satisfying revenge of Tyrion against his father easily makes the top of my list, mainly due to the completely unexpected nature of it, not to mention the vicious murder of Shae.

Killing his lover and father within a few minutes of each other requires a mental fortitude & conviction few possess. 

The interesting question this scene poses is, was Tyrion right? Would you have done the same? Did Tywin shit himself after Tyrion killed him as Bronn claims all men do, or was he fresh out and died with clean drawers?


Game of Thrones gave us some of the best television ever to grace the silver screen, leaving us thinking for days after an episode ended and months after a season.

The deep themes of morality, righteousness, family values, and pride really stuck with me long after the episode aired, and so did the clever imp that wasn't originally supposed to be a dwarf in the script.
