Violence & Gore

  • There are prolonged medieval battle scenes, 1v1 battles and battles against monsters and dragons.

  • There are numerous grisly and gory images that will be unsettling to some viewers.
  • People are consistently kidnapped, some fight back in graphic methods.
  • We see these violent scenes onscreen and hear them referenced in dialogue as well. Certain moments in particular are deeply disturbing
  • Characters can die from many ways (beheading (season 1x1), stab wounds, minor gashes, organized assassinations, etc). Even major characters that you won't suspect of dying has a big chance of getting killed. George R. R. Martin intended for this, he has stated that he wanted his book series to be realistic and unsuspecting. The violence in this series is brutal, realistic and extremely gory and is often lingered on for a moment.
  • Beheadings are shown (heads falling into baskets/rolling away even in combat)
  • Jousting has been present in the show, with bloody results.
  • The battle sequences are prolonged, very bloody, and very gruesome

  • The graphic term "cocksucker" is used once.

  • "Fuck", "shit", "cock", "twat", "whore", "slut", "bitch" and other profanities are used throughout the show.
  • "Bastard" is used extremely commonly however always in the literal term (illegitimate child). It is a term of shame and is sometimes used to insult people.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Wine is consumed in almost every episode, particularly during feasts and gatherings. It is implied that some characters drink for the sole purpose to get drunk. It is quite a big feature of the show and often influences character behavior.
  • "Milk of the Poppy" used as a painkiller.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There is graphic brutal violence in almost all of the episodes.
  • The show includes more than a few instances of sexual violence predominately (but not always) towards women: one major male character is gelded, another major character already a eunuch describes how he became that way when he was very young (shortly before taking revenge upon his aggressor whom he had spent years searching for.)
  • Well liked major and minor characters are sometimes unexpectedly killed. A lot of fights and brawls occur throughout the course of the show.
  • There are occasional scenes showing "white walkers", man-like monsters that live in the ice and seemingly have bodies made of the same, intense blue eyes, grimacing faces and scrawny bodies that might scare younger viewers
  • Many viewers will find season three very disturbing in the fact that a major character from season two is held hostage by a psychopath. Afterwards the nature and identity of the character being tortured is forcefully changed from psychological torture, and is enslaved by the torturer.
