Supplementary notes

The source counts a death if:
- the character is killed on-screen.
- the character dies off-screen, but the death is confirmed or assumed due to imminent death while on screen.
- only prominent off-screen deaths are listed. (Prominence is determined mainly by importance to the plot.) - If a character orders the death of another, the character who does the direct killing receives credit, not the one who orders the kill. But for cases in which where the direct killer is unidentifiable, as when Daenerys Targaryen orders Doreah and Xaro Xhoan Daxos to be sealed into a vault, the order-giver receives credit.

If a character dies but is brought back to life (e.g. Jon Snow), the death count stands and the revival is counted as a “second life.” Temporary deaths like Euron Greyjoy’s drowning ceremony are not counted. Beric Dondarrion has been added to the death count as a result of this rule. Gregor Clegane and Benjen Stark have not been added because it is unclear whether they died off-screen and were then reanimated, or were “altered” while still alive.

For the Battle of the Bastards, it is often unclear which side a dying soldier belongs to. Educated guesses are made based on the shape of the helmets (Bolton soldiers had pointier helmets) and sigils that can be seen on armor.
