    Instead of blown to bits or "crowning", how about Parthian Fashion (Pour molten gold in the throat). Qarr could be nice too (replaced with molten silver).

    I think MitD should be the Death Star... Since Xykon and RC are Emperor and Vader respectively...

    Nowhere. One theory is he's just not not grown up yet, so he has to be the 2nd Death Star (without that dreaded thermal exhaust). This theory is perfectly in line with him "having a father that was very big" (and that would be the 1st Death Star; it could also "eat" entire planets).

    Some guy who sold slaves so he could finance his "I want to be rich" spoiled wife or some guy who's an outright psycopath? No to both.

    Pairing Thog and Gregor isn't such a bad choice, even if Gregor is even much meaner than Thog (who is/was not actually mean, just murdering violent). Apart from stature, Belkar fits the spirit of Gregor Clegane quite well.

    Jorah and Eugene isn't such a bad match. Both are somewhat Lawful, both actually do not want something bad to come to the people around them, both think they did mostly all right all the time, both think they were wronged and both are quite some hypocrites.

    Like some outdated projection of the 1980s into the future from a 1980s point of view that still was cool in the 1990s but that no one really can take serious today anymore as it really looks like a 1980s-future from the 1980s.

    If you think Q is a nice character, you should rewatch TNG. At least Tarquin cares about people.

    Debatable - as TNG progresses, Q becomes quite fond of Pickard - to the extent that he sets up a really sneaky defiance of the Q Continuum to prevent them from wiping out humanity. I agree that he is not exactly nice, but he is shown to care on occasions.

    Actually, the best match by far for Joffrey would be the Empress of Blood.

    I would support pairing Tyrion to V (both extremely smart, both too pragmatic to be either very Good or very Evil, both physically weak) or to Lord Shojo (same applies, although I believe Tyrion would be closer to V on the Good-Evil axis...?)

    Roy - Jon Snow is a good match.

    Xykon and Elan are two characters that I think have no GoT equivalents at all.

    Dude, you can't just come strolling into threads and reference arbitrary media that have barely anything to do with the current topic of conversation. That's rude and disruptive.

    Not sure if I should make this blue just in case. No offence, Manga Shoggoth

    I deleted that post since I discover that I already made one (not the quoted one that you have).
    Sorry about interruption.

    We have The Mad King, King Aerys II (he was burning people for fun, that sounds about right for Xykon).
    Don't try to tell me what Ramsey Bolton is doing with Theon Greyjoy was in any way different from what Xykon did with O-Chul.

    And when it comes to "in for Power and Slaughter" you can line up a lot of the side-characters.

    We just do not have mages but when looking at the character A Song of Ice and Fire has a lot of cadidates to chose from.

    I'm somewhat agreeing on Elan, people like him do not survive long in that world.
    Sansa Stark is the closest to Elan. Idealistic, naive, only wants everyone to be friends, having no clue what's going on, a head filled with hot air... no, I think Sansa is corresponding quite well to Elan.
    Ser Ilyn, Ser Meryn, Queen Cersei, King Joffrey, The Tickler, The Hound, Ser Amory, Polliver, Raff the Sweetling, Weese, Dunsen, Nale, Ser Gregor Clegane and Chiswyck: Winter is coming!

    That's a pretty good interpretation. They both see the world in terms of stories too, but while Elan's world really is made of heroic fantasy cliches that he can manipulate, things are a little different for poor Sansa.

    The Mad King, sure... excellent choice... it's just that since we never see him, I didn't consider him part of the pool of characters, but why not. (I haven't read the books, only seen the show.)

    Ser Gregor Clegane is more like Belkar... except he's a one-and-a-half-ling. ;)

    Agreed as well.

    Which do you think fits Tyrion best, Vaarsuvius or Lord Shojo?

    And for Roy, which would be best, Jon Snow, Robb Stark, or Ned Stark? I think Robb Stark is the best fit for Roy, actually.
