Ser Gregor Clegane

Ser Gregor Clegane, nicknamed "The Mountain," has already cheated death once thanks to the dark sciences of maester Qyburn, but it's a sure bet this Frankenstein-esque warrior is out of second chances. Played by Icelandic actor Hafþór Björnsson, the current strongest man in the world, the scene is set for one of "Thrones" most anticipated arena fights.

That's right – the much-hyped "Clegane Bowl" between the Mountain and his brother Sandor Clegane (aka The Hound) is likely in the cards for season 8. With Sandor firmly in the middle of a redemption arc, fans are hopeful that he will succeed where The Red Viper violently failed at the end of season 4. One thing is for sure: no one will count The Mountain out until the camera shows his chest rise and fall for the very last time.
