As the great and terrible Cersei Lannister once said, when you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. Mostly, you die. We GoT fans have learned the hard way not to get too attached to anyone, because you never know when their heads might roll. There's no way to even begin to count all the unnamed corpses that have littered the screen at any given time, and once you start counting deaths that happen off screen, you won't be able to stop until the sun sets in the East and rises in the West. Nevertheless, we've put together the most comprehensive list of Game of Thrones deaths we could manage. Below is a complete list of all the on-screen deaths of named characters, and a few un-named characters and off-screen deaths that seemed important enough to stick in. Shout out to all the other unnamed soldiers and villagers that didn't make it on this list. The North Remembers! RIP.

How many characters have died on Game of Thrones?

As of Season 6 Episode 10, the total number of deaths is: 196.

If you prefer your deaths quick and painful, then you should definitely check out this video showing all the deaths of Season 6 in under three minutes.

191. Queen Margaery Tyrell (Season 6 Episode 10)

189. Lord Mace Tyrell (Season 6 Episode 10)

The Lord of Highgarden and Warden of the South was also present for the aforementioned wildfire.

188. Ser Loras Tyrell (Season 6 Episode 10)

Poor Loras had one of those horrible symbols of the Seven carved on his forehead, then he burned up in the wildfire.

187. The High Sparrow (Season 6 Episode 10)

If it hadn't been for this religious fanatic, the whole wildfire explosion might have been avoided. As it turned out, though, he was smack dab in the center of it.

186. Lancel Lannister (Season 6 Episode 10)

Also stabbed by one of Qyburn's little birds, which was kind of excessive since he was blown to bits by wildfire minutes later.

185. Grand Maester Pycelle (Season 6 Episode 10)

We kind of forgot that Grand Maester Pycelle even existed until he was stabbed by one of Qyburn's little birds at the beginning of Season 6 Episode 10.

Not quite as annoying as Razdal, but still deserved his fate.

179. Razdal mo Eraz (Season 6 Episode 9)

The Waif slit the lovely Lady Crane's throat.

176. Ser Brynden 'The Blackfish' Tully (Season 6 Episode 8)

The last member of that Brotherhood group that the Hound killed on his own in the forest.

173. Steve (Season 6 Episode 8)

Along with Gatins, Morgan helped slaughter Brother Ray's people, then got sliced open by the Hound.

171. Gatins (Season 6 Episode 8)

The nasty member of the Brotherhood Without Banners that murders Brother Ray's group. Later, Gatins joked about being a good kisser, then stuck his hand down that other guy's pants, just before the Hound chopped his head off.

170. Brother Ray (Season 6 Episode 7)

A rogue faction of the Brotherhood Without Banners strung up Ian McShane — I mean, Brother Ray — in Season 6 Episode 7, when the Hound made his comeback.

169. King Aerys II Targaryen (Season 6 Episode 6)

23. Mirri Maz Duur (Season 1 Episode 10)

Daenerys sentenced the magic woman to burn on Khal Drogo's funeral pyre for performing the black magic that Daenerys begged her to perform in the first place.

The same black magic that left Drogo mostly dead twisted his and Daenerys's little son into a dragon-like monster, and he was stillborn.

20. Lord Eddard Stark (Season 1 Episode 9)

This was the moment that simultaneously stopped and broke our hearts, and made us realize Thrones was no ordinary show. The man we kind of thought was the main character was cruelly beheaded by Ilyn Payne when that little weasel Joffrey Baratheon gave the command in Season 1 Episode 9.

19. Qotho (Season 1 Episode 9)

One of Khal Drogo's bloodriders (the one that broke Viserys's arm as they restrained him), he tries to prevent Mirri Maz Duur from performing blood magic on the fallen Khal. Ser Jorah kills him.

A girl's first kill.

14. Syrio Forel (Season 1 Episode 8)

Arya's dancing master/combat instructor was presumably killed by Meryn Trent as he gave Arya a chance to escape capture. But we never actually saw him die on screen...

13. Varly (Season 1 Episode 7)

A loyal servant of Eddard Stark, he's killed when the City Watch betray Ned on his way to confront Joffrey.

12. Robert Baratheon (Season 1 Episode 7)

In what was hardly a hero's death, Robert Baratheon died after getting gouged in the side by a wild boar. If only he'd manage to disown the bastard Joffrey before he went...

11. Viserys Targaryen (Season 1 Episode 6)

Seriously, how satisfying was it to watch Khal Drogo pour molten gold over this whiney little vulture's head? Good riddance.

10. Vardis Egen (Season 1 Episode 6)

Robyn and Lysa Arryn's Captain of the Guards at the Eyrie, Vardis fought as Lysa's champion in a trial by combat, which he lost to Bronn, who was fighting for Tyrion. Bronn pushed Vardis out the Moon Door.

9. Wallen (Season 1 Episode 6)

One of Osha's Wildling companions, a deserter from the Night's Watch. Robb Stark kills him when they try to steal Bran's horse.

8. Stiv (Season 1 Episode 6)

Another Night's-Watchman-turned-Wildling. Theon shoots him with an arrow in the scuffle over Bran's horse.

Jaime Lannister stabbed the Stark Captain of the Guards right through the eye in Season 1 Episode 5, back before we knew that the Kingslayer had any redeeming qualities.

The Hound kills Arya's friend, the butcher's son, on Joffrey's orders after the sword fight incident.

4. Lady (Season 1 Episode 2)

After Nymeria bit Joffrey and Arya sent her away, Sansa's direwolf was punished instead, and Ned Stark executed her. What happened to Nymeria after that?

3. Jon Arryn (Season 1, Episode 1)

We never got to know Jon Arryn, since he was already dead when the show started. But we did get to see his dead body. He was the Hand of the King to Robert Baratheon before Ned Stark, and also Ned's guardian. He was married to Catelyn's sister, Lysa.

2. Will (Season 1, Episode 1)

Way back in the pilot, we all felt kind of bad for this Night's Watch deserter, because we knew that he really had seen the White Walkers. I bet they wish they'd listened to him now...

1. Gared (Season 1, Episode 1)

One of the Night's Watchman that was out ranging North of the Wall and wound up getting devoured by wights.
