The Game of Thrones mantra "Valar Morghulis", translates as "All Men Must Die", is an accurate one for the series. The on-screen GoT death count has reached 150,966 deaths, by one accounting over the first six seasons, including well over 100 named characters.

Which "Games of Thrones" kill is your favorite creative death?

SPOILER ALERT: Intended for viewers current through the Summer 2016 season as poll reveals plot points, as well as, depicted or discussed Game of Thrones deaths through Summer 2016.

A fine gruesome list, but doesn't Arya's surprise killing of child-beater Meryn Trant belong on this list?

Good suggestion. I thought so too, initially, but removed it as an option as the three things she did to him made it a too complex an option, In reality, they were borderline for inclusion on creativity. I chose instead to save some spots for the even more creative deaths to come.

Fair enough, it's a fine poll & many thanks for it.
Thought the element of risk to Arya/the killer, which is absent in some of the poll choices, enduring the beating to be alone with Trant, & the fact she removed the false face & attacked as herself heightened the creativity for me, not to mention she brought down a man twice her size.
It's a fine line, tough choices. Would rate Wun-Wun's snatching the crossbowman who shot him, slamming him to a bloody pulp against the wall, then tossing him at Sir Alesser's feet, above Mag's rather straightforward run at Gren & his men, of which we see only the result.
 
Another candidate might be Brienne's lightning dispatch of the 3 Stark men who stop her & Jamie on the road... followed by the slow & creative impalement of their leader for cruelly denying one of the hanged barmaids a quick death.
Might tiny Denaerys, walking unarmed into the company of Khals & bloodriders, and first baiting, then destroying them all by fire have been another choice?

Again, thanks for many fine & intriguing polls

I agree, I liked all those scenes too. It came down to a judgement call as there were too many options to list them all. If you haven't seen this video yet, it is a quick way to see the past six seasons of GoT deaths and puts the whole issue in perspective. Thanks for the feedback.

This is great. :)
I'm torn between several.

Superfluous 'by' in #10 and #14.

Thanks, corrected. I removed the extra "by"s.

I had to cut and leave off a lot of creative deaths to leave some room for future deaths. I know there will be some greats ones over the last thirteen episodes that will outdo even these,

'Pretty cool poll. Gruesome, lol, but cool. I don't know yet which will get my vote; there are so many really interesting ones with great images, too. 

May I suggest one edit?

"The Game of Thrones mantra "Valar Morghulis", translates as "All Men Must Die", is an accurate one for the series"  -- This has two present tense action verbs (translates and is) so I'd change it to one of the following or something similar:

"The Game of Thrones mantra "Valar Morghulis", meaning "All Men Must Die", is an accurate one for the series."   
OR
"The Game of Thrones mantra "Valar Morghulis", translates as "All Men Must Die" and is an accurate one for the series."

(Pardon my annoying grammar habit, lol.)

Corrected, thanks for the help. Please, point out any other errors you see anytime.

The Game of Thrones mantra "Valar Morghulis", translates from High Valyrian as "All Men Must Die" and is an accurate one for the series.
