2. Her Right Hand Man is Tyrion friggin Lannister
Who better to have by your side than an alcoholic womanizer with familial ties to your greatest enemies that has spent most his life walking around with a massive chip on his shoulder? The Mother of Dragons, of course. Tyrion Lannister is the brains to her heart. Despite all of his shortcomings, there is no denying that he has one of the most brilliant and strategic minds in all of Westeros – when he’s not drunk, that is.
Like Daenerys, Tyrion is as an outcast, unwelcomed nearly everywhere he goes. Yet given all that disdain, he too has risen against the odds and shown that underestimating him is an easy way to find yourself with a bolt through the chest while sitting on the can. Few people know the inner workings of Westeros better, and if he can pretty much single handedly save King’s Landing from invasion, you know he can turn the tables and just as easily figure out a clever way to conquer it. Who knows, he may even be one of the three heads on the fabled dragon that will save the world. If that’s not enough, there’s also a theory floating around that his real father is Aerys II, which would make him Dany’s half-brother. Remember when he tamed the dragons beneath Meereen? Do you really think that was because Rhaegal and Viserion weren’t hungry? Good luck stopping the combined forces of two homeless dragon-tamers.
1. She. Has. Dragons.
Need we say more? Really, this list could have just been one entry. Neigh, one sentence: DAENERYS TARGARYEN HAS MOTHER EFFIN DRAGONS. Suck on that, anyone stupid enough to think they can keep the royal crown from the Mother of Dragons. Westerosians, Essosians, White Walkers, it’s all the same. Everybody is just fire fodder waiting to get burned.
Slavers Bay was just a taste of things to come. There is good reason why these winged beasts rule the show. You can build all the massive spike launchers you want, but the awesomeness of Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal will live on forever. Even if by some stroke of luck these mythic beasts are somehow slain in battle, what they stand for will continue to haunt, mesmerize, and dominate the realm, embodied in a tiny little silver-haired girl with nothing to lose and everything to gain. Because the fact remains, Khaleesi pretty much gave birth to dragons. Anyone with that on their resume has already won the Game of Thrones in our book.
Besides, if The NeverEnding Story has taught us anything, when you have a dragon on your side, great things happens.
