** Greyscale is a chronic, disfiguring disease that causes numb grey lesions to spread across the body, making the victim appear to be turning to stone. Victims in an advanced state are called "stone men" and live together in isolated colonies. Its symptoms share similarities with leprosy and smallpox. Supposedly it's relatively harmless in children, merely leaving them disfigured (notably Shireen Baratheon), but the wildlings disagree and kill afflicted children as a matter of course. Victims of Greyscale are so scorned that [[spoiler:Jon Connington hides the fact that he has it rather than seek treatment because he won't risk abandonment by his followers]].

Victims of Greyscale are so scorned that [[spoiler:Jon Connington hides the fact that he has it rather than seek treatment because he won't risk abandonment by his followers]]. The main reason for fear of this disease is that at the terminal stage the victim manifests rabies-like aggressive insanity, spreading the disease further.

* OldMaster: OldMaid:
** Arianne Martell, who is still unwed at the age of 23 in a world where marriage at 14 isn't considered unusual, [[spoiler:although her father has ensured that she remains unmarried so that she can marry a Targaryen]].
** Lollys Stokeworth is fat and simple-minded, causing her to remain unwed at the age of 33 despite her mother's best efforts to find a match. It doesn't help when she's gang raped by dozens of rioters, leaving her pregnant and emotionally fragile. Finally she settles for [[spoiler:Bronn, who quickly works his position into a lordship by making Lollys's elder sister into a widow.]]

* RefugeInAudacity: After [[spoiler:the Red Wedding]], the Frey's say that [[spoiler:Robb Stark and his men all simultaneously warged into wolves and began slaughtering people, so they had to kill them in self-defense]]. Suffice to say, almost no one believes this particular version of the story.

* LessonsInSophistication: Deconstructed. Sansa and Arya receive them. Arya resents the lessons, fails them constantly, preferring swordplay and adventures, and eventually gets stuck as a lost child in the middle of a war-torn land (with all of the dire consequences this has). Sansa likes the lessons and succeeds in them, and they eventually help her survive in a hostile DeadlyDecadentCourt, but several other characters point out that she's an EmptyShell just going through the motions they taught her.

This works to her benefit, since few believe she's capable of anything, even as her skills as a political actor continue to develop.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Mummers}}: Mummers' shows are a frequently-mentioned form of entertainment, occasionally retelling historical stories in ways calculated to appeal to the audience (or not offend the powers that be). Arya spends some time with a troupe in Braavos who are performing a bawdy, sensationalised version of the War of Five Kings.

Added DiffLines:

* MasterSwordsman: Multiple people in the series are noted as being formidable fighters for one reason or another. Jaime Lannister (best swordsman alive prior to losing his hand), Loras Tyrell, Robert Baratheon (in his youth), Gregor Clegane (due to his strength, size and borderline invincibility), Barristan Selmy, Arthur Dayne (when he was still alive), Oberyn Martell.

** Sharra Arryn also fits as well. Despite fortifying her land defenses, it didn't matter when Visenya Targaryen simply flew over them all and landed at the Eyrie. [[She rushed out to find her son sitting on Visenya's knee asking for a ride. The two Queens simply exchanged pleasantries and Sharra surrendered then.]]

** DramaticIrony crops up when you realize that the only reason our world ever improved our medical practices was by embracing men like Qyburn. Leonardo da Vinci also liked to cut open corpses and see what was inside, and he (and others like him) massively improved our collective understanding of the human body. Of course, Leonardo was operating with the conscent of his government, whereas Qyburn plied his trade in secret.
