Samwell Tarly is no one’s favorite Game of Thrones character. Sure, he can’t fight and he’s kind of a coward, but he’s the only person in Westeros to have killed a White Walker, and he’s very possibly the smartest person in the Night’s Watch, which is going to be far more useful than swords in the fight to come.

But he’s not alone in not getting his proper due.

We want to know about all the other characters in books, TV shows, movies, cartoons, etc., that you believe deserve more acclaim — both in their fictional worlds and in our real one. Make sure you include what series they’re from (especially if they’re not particularly well-known) and why you think they’ve earned more respect than they’ve gotten.
