Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Game of Thrones
Does being born into a family of insane, super-blond, incestuous, snooty, morally bankrupt backstabbers get the Half Man down? No! Instead, his devious intellect and ridiculously irreverent wit make him the best of the lot. Tyrion talked himself out of an execution, led an army to victory and has won his way into at least one whore's heart. Seven hells! We'd give up one of our dragon eggs for one of his clever, smoothly delivered barbs directed our way.
