Added DiffLines:

* ColorMotif: Green and gold. Symbolizing not only Renly's greed and ambition, but also his close alliance with the Tyrells (whose house colors are green and gold).
* ConfusionFu: Renly's peach seemed to be his take on this. Stannis takes it as the ImpliedDeathThreat it appears to be, yet Renly claims it wasn't a threat. Later [[spoiler: when Renly is dead,]] Stannis is still puzzled over this. So it apparently worked. [[GoneHorriblyRight Perhaps too well,]] [[spoiler: since this only gave Stannis further motivation to have Renly assassinated.]]
-->''"Renly offered me a peach. At our parlay. Mocked me, defied me, threatened me, and offered me a peach. I thought he was drawing a blade and went for mine own. Was that his purpose, to make me show fear? Or was it one of his pointless jests? When he spoke of how sweet it was, did his words have some hidden meaning?" The king gave a shake of his head, like a dog shaking a rabbit to snap its neck. "Only Renly could vex me so with a peach. [[spoiler: He brought his doom on himself with his treason, but I did love him, Davos. I know that now. I swear, I will go to my grave thinking of my brother's peach."'']]

* MyNaymeIs: Robar instead of Robert. Rather confusingly, he's called Ro''g''ar Baratheon in ''Sons Of The Dragon''.

* HideYourLesbians: Renly and Loras Tyrell had a sexual relationship. It was handled subtly, because most Westerosi feel that [[EternalSexualFreedom it's not their business what (or who) Renly's doing on the side]], and WordOfGay was necessary before some fans would believe it.

--> It was just the sort of notion that would appeal to Renly Baratheon; a splendid new order of knighthood, with gorgeous new raiment to proclaim it. Even as a boy, Renly had loved bright colors and rich fabrics, and he had loved his games as well. "Look at me!" he would shout as he ran laughing through the halls of Storm's End. "Look at me, I'm a dragon," or "Look at me, I'm a wizard," or "Look at me, look at me, I'm the rain god."\\

-->'''Renly:''' Tyrell swords will make me king. Rowan and Tarly and Caron will make me king, with axe and mace and warhammer. Tarth arrows and Penrose lances, Fossoway, Cuy, Mullendore, Estermont, Selmy, Hightower, Oakheart, Crane, Caswell, Blackbar, Morrigen, Beesbury, Shermer, Dunn, Footly... even House Florent, your own wifeís brothers and uncles, they will make me king. All the chivalry of the south rides with me, and that is the least part of my power. My foot is coming behind, a hundred thousand swords and spears and pikes. And you will destroy me? With what, pray? That paltry rabble I see there huddled under the castle walls? Iíll call them five thousand and be generous, codfish lords and onion knights and sellswords. Half of them are like to come over to me before the battle starts. You have fewer than four hundred horse, my scouts tell me-freeriders in boiled leather who will not stand an instant against armored lances. I do not care how seasoned a warrior you think you are, Stannis, that host of yours wonít survive the first charge of my vanguard.

* BlingOfWar: He's as bad as Loras when it comes to decorative armor, wearing a suit of enameled green armor and helmet, which has ''intricate'' golden antlers that can't possibly be any use in a fight.

** As Robb Stark points out, Renly's claim goes against the Westrosi rules of succession. Had Renly succeeded in taking the throne, the country's system of inheritance would be turned on it's ear as usurpation would be seen as socially acceptable.

Later during his negotiations with Stannis he repeats the rumor that Patchface is Shireen's father, knowing that it will annoy his brother.

!!Lord Robar Baratheon, Protector of the Realm, Hand of the King

Lord of Storm's End and Lord Paramount of the Stormlands during the reign of Maegor Targaryen. He was the first lord to declare for the young Jaehaerys Targaryen and was proclaimed Hand of the King and Protector of the Realm as a result. He later married Alyssa Velaryon, siring Boremund and Jocelyn Baratheon.
----
* DragonInChief: As Jaehaerys was still a young teenager when he laid claim to the Iron Throne, Robar was named Protector of the Realm, the topmost military commander of the Seven Kingdoms.
*NumberTwo: As Hand of the King he was the second most powerful man of the realm.

The same happened to Robert, going from incredible MagneticHero to ineffectual AdiposeRex in just a few years. [[spoiler: Stannis seems to be heading down the same road too.]]

* BiTheWay: Despite his sexual preferences being well known, Cersei believes that Renly had sex with Margaery because she was available to him as his wife. Let's be honest, however, she just wants to get rid of Margaery anyway she can, and proving Margaery isn't a virgin as she claims is a surefire way to do that. Plus, her source is probably biased.

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Of TheCharmer. His charisma leads the Stormlords and Reachmen to support his claim based on superficial reasons, rather than following the law or assessing his competence as a war leader or administrator. The result is that the war against the Lannisters is fatally undermined because the Stormlands and Reach are riven by factionalism.
