Added DiffLines:

* HyperlinkStory: The books have a revolving POV structure where each chapter is narrated by alternating series of characters from different parts of the fantasy setting, from different classes, genders and ages. Some of the plot threads: the Night's Watch, Essos rarely overlap directly but play as parallel narratives to the realm of the 7 Kingdoms which is the arena comprised of most of the characters.

* AlternateAppearanceAura:
** Melisandre is able to cast these on people -- they're said to be very difficult magic, and harder to keep up depending on how much they challenge people's {{Weirdness Censor}}s, so wearing the person's IconicItem or IconicOutfit helps the disguise.
** According to the Kindly Man, The Faceless Men are also able to cast them.
** In "The Mystery Knight", it's implied that [[spoiler:Maynard Plumm]] may be Bloodraven casting one of these. Dunk mentions that "the harder he looked at him, the less he saw."

Added DiffLines:

* EvilTaintedThePlace: A MaybeMagicMaybeMundane example: the castle of Harrenhal was built by a tyrannical king ([[{{Egopolis}} named Harren]]), who died right there when a dragon roasted him. Since then, no one manages to hold this castle for long, and everyone thinks of Harrenhal as an unholy and cursed place. The possible rational explanation for that is that the castle is too big for any non-royal feudal lord to properly maintain, and useless for defense because of damage sustained from that dragon.

* AdiposeRex: King Robert Baratheon, while not morbidly obese, is seen by Eddard as having put on a lot of weight since Eddard had known him prior to his ascension. Also, in the backstory, King Aegon IV Targaryen, called Aegon the Unworthy, became very fat over the course of his reign. Also, [[spoiler:Tommen becomes king]] and is described as chubby, although that may just be baby fat. Wise Master Yezzan zo Qaggaz of Yunkai is morbidly obese apparently due to a disease he caught in the southern continent. And while not a full-blown king, Lord Manderly is described as barely able to walk due to his prodigious girth.

** The late Mad King Aerys lusted after Joanna Lannister, wife of his Hand Tywin Lannister. He joked that it was a shame that the practice had been outlawed, antagonizing Tywin. Although he is not known to have raped Joanna, Barristan Selmy does confirm that he took liberties in the bedding ritual, apparently going further than the accepted disrobing of the bride.

* DeadlyDeferredConversation: Basically if you've got something to say in Westeros spit it out ''now'' because the odds of a long if not permanent separation from your intended confidant are very, very high.
