NME Blog looked at what really makes them similar.

1. Choice of steed

Ramsay: Rides horses, like most people in Game of Thrones. His own horse is actually called Blood.
Liam: Rides dogs when pissed. In April 2013, he reportedly got “absolutely hammered” in a London pub at the weekend and attempted to ride a fellow drinker’s pet dog.

2. Belief system

Ramsay: Swears stuff ‘by the old gods and the new’. Probably has some kind of twisted mystical stuff going on involving blood sacrifice, leeches, and ‘justice’.
Liam: “Some days I don’t believe and some days I do believe.” Mysterious.

3. Torture methods

Ramsay: Breaks down Theon physically and mentally, before cutting off his penis.
Liam: Throws a plum at Noel, swings a guitar around like an axe, ends Oasis.

4. Vindictiveness

Ramsay: Eats sausage after cutting off Theon’s penis
Liam: Sings ‘Shitelife’ after beating Blur to a BRIT.
Liam also says that at London’s Groucho Club, “Gazza was at the bar, using that old joke: ‘D’you want a ‘Roll With It’? D’you want a roll with your soup? So I squirted him with a fire extinguisher.”

5. Name-calling prowess

Ramsay: Calls Theon ‘Reek’ so many times, alongside Pavlovian torture techniques, that Theon changes his identity and refuses to go by Theon any more out of fear.
Liam: Has called Noel a ‘cartoon character’, ‘sad’ and ‘a sell-out’. Words, words, words.

6. Choice of dog

Ramsay: Owns a pack of feral hunting dogs, with which he hunts his used toys (who are human beings).
Liam: Owns sausage dogs, which he loves very much. “Extinction of sausage dogs?” he’s said, “I will prevent that! When I’m back in England I am gonna buy 900 of them. I am gonna prevent them from downfall.”

7. Boundary-testing

Ramsay: Parades Reek before a horrified Sansa at dinner: this is the man she believes murdered her two brothers.
Liam: Forgot to buy a house so didn’t go on an American tour in 1995. Returned three days later, but Noel left soon after.

8. Aptitude for silliness

Ramsay: 0/10.
Liam: Doing helium. “Who wants it? I’m mad for it!”

Or…

And also…

9. Destructiveness

Ramsay: Infiltrates Theon’s Ironborn and kills them all. Flays any who resist. Infiltrate’s Stannis’ camp and kills them all. Flays any who resist.
Liam: After being arrested for being drunk and disorderly on a ferry to Amsterdam in 1994, Liam said, “They locked me in a room with a mattress and a bucket. I’d been drinking and was pissing like a twat. It was swilling about.” He’d apparently been shouting at police, “It’ll take 10 of you to take me down!”

10. Popularity

Ramsay: Global, feared hate figure throughout the fictional realm of Westeros (and the real world too).
Liam: National Treasure.
