* [[BoisterousBruiser Boisterous Bruisers]]: Most Baratheons [[note]]-except Renly, who didn't get to be a bruiser-[[/note]] fall under this trope (even Stannis, who is unique in his soberness and lack of joviality about it). The most notable Baratheons use the Nikita Kruschev method of diplomacy of drinking their foes stupid until they make them their friends.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections, [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney I Have Money]], and [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight I'm Doing What's Right]]: He based his claim on his very powerful and influential friendship with the Tyrells and the vassal houses of the Stormlands; granted, his offer was so attractive that he even brought people from the Vale into the fold. One of his main arguments is that Stannis would make a terrible king altogether, offering himself as a better choice and usurping his brother's claim.
