Whether they left you devastated or had you unapologetically screaming, "FINALLY," each of these losses proved impactful to the storyline of the HBO series.
Here are the most major of them all.
Fans watched helplessly during season 6 as the simple-minded Hodor--the loyal servant of Winterfell and Brandon Stark's right-hand man -- was killed by wights as he protected Bran and the group from the same fate. It was then we learned the origin of Hodor's name. Hold the door.
Viserys, brother of Queen Daenerys, was killed when Khal Drogo poured boiling hot, melted gold on his head -- giving Viserys the crown he so desperately wanted.
King Robert was killed by a wild boar on his hunting trip, making Joffrey heir to the throne.
Daughter of Cersei and Jaime, Myrcella is poisoned by Ellaria Sand in revenge against the Lannisters for Oberyn Martell's death.
Eddard Stark (Ned)
Ned's jaw-dropping beheading occurred in season 1, instilling fear in fans that no character was safe playing the "Game of Thones."
Drogo dies from an infection from a wound he received from a fight. Daenerys tried to save him using blood magic to save his life, but she later smothers him with a pillow when he couldn't wake from his coma-like state.
A king in his own right, Renly eventually was murdered by his own brother Stannis who summoned Melisandre to kill him with a shadow of death.
Robb was stabbed by Roose Bolton after he betrayed Lord Walder Frey by not marrying one of his daughters as promised and marrying Talisa, a combat medic, instead. The infamous episode was shocking yet true to its title: The Red Wedding.
Wife of "King of the North" Robb Stark, a pregnant Talisa was sadly killed by one of Walder Frey's men shortly after she sweetly revealed to Robb that she wanted to name their baby "Ned," after his late father.
Another Red Wedding death, Catelyn, mother of Robb, was executed by another one of Frey's men.
Viewers likely cheered as King Joffrey, aka the root of all evil, bit the big one after being poisoned at his own wedding. Sorry Joffrey, not sorry.
Sister of Catelyn Stark, Lysa was pushed through her own moon door by Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger.
Oberyn dies quite literally at the hands of the Mountain, who crushes his skull during a trial by combat.
Queen Margaery Tyrell
Fan favorite Margaery was one of many who died in the Sept of Baelor after Cersei arranged for a wildfire explosion.
King Tommen Baratheon
The sweetest of any "GOT" king to take the iron throne, Tommen sadly jumped to his death before removing his crown in the season 6 finale -- seemingly because the explosion at the Sept of Baelor and losing his wife Margaery was too much for him to take.
Olenna dies after drinking poison offered by Jaime Lannister, after Cersei reveals plans to have her killed. But it was her final words to Jaime that gave her a standing ovation from fans. "Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me," Olenna says, revealing that she was the one who poisoned Joffrey at his own wedding.
Forbidden lover of Jon Snow, Ygritte was shot by Olly during an attack on Castle Black. Of course in her final words she'd utter her infamous catch phase, "You know nothing, Jon Snow."

Stannis was beheaded by Breinne of Tarth for playing a role in the death of his brother Renly.
While using the toilet, Tywin is shot with a crossbow by his son Tyrion, after Tyrion escapes from prison.
Let's be honest, Ramsay had to go. He was a pretty terrible person but besides that, it was gratifying to see his wife Sansa get revenge for his poor treatment. Ultimately, Sansa sics Ramsay's own hounds on him.
Shireen sadly burned to death after her father Stannis was convinced by Melisandre to hold a sacrifice.
Fans first cried after Daeny's dragon was slayed by a White Walker and later gasped as Viserion emerged as a zombie-like creature himself.
Littlefinger/Lord Petyr Baelish
In arguably the most epic scene of season 7, a scheming Lord Baelish has his throat cut by Arya -- a sentence ordered by Sansa.
Walder is killed by Arya Stark in revenge for killing her mother and brother. She first uses Walder's own face to call a meeting of House Frey and poisons all of them. Arya then wears another woman's face before revealing her true self to a visibly shocked Walder before cutting his throat.
Poor, young Rickon is killed with an arrow in season 6 by a cruel Ramsay Bolton, who pretends to let him run to his brother, Jon Snow.
