* Downplayed with Maester Wolkan. In the books, he was ordered to spy on Stannis Baratheon pretending to be the Karstarks' maester. In the show, he doesn't do any such thing.

* In the books, Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane is not just physically terrifying but also a sadist who enjoys torturing his victims (including forcing them to eat their own cut-off body parts) and initiates the gang-rape of a 13-year old girl. In the TV series, Clegane becomes more of a simple-minded thuggish brute whose love of killing is more animalistic than sadistic. Bpok Gregor is shown to have a decent, if unremarkable command of war tactics, and seems to know what he is doing, while several characters explicitly describe Show Gregor as too stupid to think for himself and merely following Tywin Lannister's orders.

* In the novels, Sandor Clegane goes to Sansa's room during the Battle of Blackwater with the apparent intention of raping her, holding her down with a knife at her throat. The show makes their confrontation much less frightening, making Sansa's refusal to escape with him much [[FridgeLogic less understandable]].

In the previous season, he is implied to have killed the butcher's boy Micah by accident and shows no joy in it, whereas in the book he deliberately cut him down and ''laughs'' about it.

* As dark as she becomes in the show, Arya's traumatic experiences in the books leave her even [[SociopathicHero colder]] and more AxCrazy and give her a real cruel streak.

*** Jaime in the books even after the beginning of his RedemptionQuest is quite blunt and jerkish, and after the loss of his hand tries to cultivate a more distant and intimidating demeanour, whereas Jaime in Season 4 barring one or two interactions is often quite nice. The scene where he asks Tywin to spare his brother for instance is quite far apart from Book!Jaime at least in levels of earnestness and sincerity.
*** His interactions with Brienne (with whom he already has a fair bit of ShipTease in the novels) tend to be warmer in the show than in the books, especially later on.

*** Following his exile from Westeros, Tyrion becomes even darker and cruel than he was in the books, and tries to join Daenerys on the condition he can inflict revenge on his family, specially by raping and murdering Cersei. In the show, he never expresses these desiresand actually [[TookALevelInKindness takes a level in kindness]] after joining Daenerys as his adviser. When they actually return to Westeros, Tyrion tries his best to have Daenerys' conquest to be clean as possible and still feels sympathy for his relatives, even though they are now his enemies.

*** Her opinion of Margaery as an [[SocialClimber ambitious]] [[TheVamp vamp]] intent on turning her children against her is completely validated by Margaery's actions in the show, [[TheDogShotFirst justifying]] her retaliation. In the books this is almost entirely her own paranoia since Margaery's motives are a much more open question and her "schemes" include giving Tommen kittens and positive reinforcement and urging him to take an interest in government and public opinion. Despite the fact that getting Loras arrested by the Faith Militant was an underhanded move, well, at least this time she didn't frame anyone (and she has gone after him in the books as well for far more petty reasons, albeit in a different fashion).
