Stannis the Mannis is a nickname given to Stannis Baratheon, a character in George R. R. Martin’s series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire and the adapted HBO fantasy television series Game of Thrones. In fan art, photoshopped stills and GIFs from the show, Stannis the Mannis is made to look cool.

As Robert’s eldest brother Stannis is the heir to the Iron Throne, though few see him as a threat initially because few know Joffrey and Cersei’s other children are Jaime’s illegitimate offspring.
