39. Bronn and Jaime Lannister vs. Dornish soldiers
S5E4: “Sons of the Harpy”
This fight is probably the highlight of the Dornish plot, if for no other reason than this GIF.
38. Jorah Mormont vs. Qotho
In the early seasons, Jorah the Andal wore his heavy armor every time he fought -- and this isn’t the last time he would get nicked in the cheek by an arakh blade. Jorah predicted his victory, though, and correctly.
37. Jorah Mormont vs. pit slaves
S5E9: “The Dance Of Dragons”
AKA “That Other Time Jorah Got Nicked in the Cheek.” The crowd boos him at the end of this fight, and honestly, he deserved it. Jorah should be dead, guys.
36. Gregor Clegane vs. prisoners
S4E8: “The Mountain and the Viper”
A sword fight in the sense that his opponents hold swords when they die. Really, this is Gregor Clegane’s abattoir, and the floors are not sanitized.
35. Yoren vs. Amory Lorch and Lannister soldiers
S2E3: “What Is Dead May Never Die”
Lorch may have killed Yoren, but not before Yoren gave the most badass original-to-the-show monologue you totally forgot about. Arya can thank him for her lists.
34. Jon Snow vs. Tormund Giantsbane, Orell, and Ygritte
S3E9: “The Rains of Castamere”
Mackenzie Crook only appeared as Orell in six episodes before Jon Snow drove Longclaw through his chest, but Jon still wears the mark of his warging eagle.
33. Yara Greyjoy and Ironborn vs. Bolton soldiers
S4E6: “The Laws of Gods and Men”
I wish this fight pushed the story forward more than getting Yara to touch base with Reek/Theon, but it provides a counterbalance to the other vital, non-violent event of the episode: Tyrion Lannister’s trial. Yara’s speech before the scene begins serves as a good reminder of why she is the leader the Iron Islands need, and the combat itself is all dark, murky madness.
