* TheSociopath: It gets to the point that his father thinks [[spoiler:he deserved to die for being so vile]]. Martin clearly intended to write this trope true to life, with Joffrey's sociopathy always present, as Cersei mentions in ''A Storm of Swords'' that Robert once knocked out a few of his baby teeth over "some business with a cat".

Added DiffLines:

* OpenSecret: By ''A Clash of Kings,'' pretty much all of Westeros is aware (or at least suspects) that her "Baratheon" children are the result of an incestuous affair with her own brother. Not helping is the fact that all three of them are blond, like Cersei herself and her twin, while trueborn Baratheons always have black hair.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBastard: A princess born of incest and adultery, to be sure, but with a much sweeter disposition than her older brother.


Added DiffLines:

* ProperLady: She remains calm, dignified and composed when being sent away to Dorne.
-->To be sure, her smile was a shade tremulous when her brothers took their leave of her on the deck of the Seaswift, but the girl knew the proper words to say, and she said them with courage and dignity. When the time came to part, it was Prince Tommen who cried, and Myrcella who gave him comfort.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilAunt: She has Littlefinger spread rumors about her niece Shireen being a bastard and a fool's daughter, in order to counter the whispers that her own children are products of incest and adultery (which they are).


Added DiffLines:

* IWasQuiteALooker: Well, [[ProudBeauty she still thinks she is,]] but [[spoiler:during her naked walk of shame through the streets of King's Landing, she realizes that her beauty is beginning to fade due to age and the strain of bearing three children.]]

-->'''Tyrion's thoughts:''' ''(after Cersei gets enraged over Stannis' letter accusing her children of being bastards)'' It was astonishing to see how angry Cersei could wax over accusations she knew perfectly well to be true. If we lose the war, she ought to take up mummery, she has a gift for it.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The smallfolk of King's Landing despise her for her wanton cruelty and her incestuous relationship with her brother. When she [[spoiler:makes her naked walk of shame through King's Landing]], the peasants pelt her with garbage, dung and rotten food while calling her "whore", "cunt", and "brotherfucker".
* AbusiveParent: When Tommen stands up for himself for possibly the first time in his life, Cersei... ''doesn't'' beat his whipping boy, Pate. Oh no. Instead she orders Boros Blount to force her eight year old son to beat Pate himself, 'until both cheeks bleed', and lets Tommen know that if he refuses or protests at all ''the boy's tongue will be cut out in front of him.''

* AmbiguousDisorder: She shows a lot of signs of Borderline, Paranoid and Narcissistic Personality Disorder, seeing people as either completely good and on her side or completely bad and against her, only really caring about people who she sees as extensions of herself, thinking bullying, murder, and war are "bold" decisions and good politics etc. This behavior makes her a terrible ruler.

* RedOniBlueOni: She thinks of herself as a female counterpart to her father, but she couldn't be more wrong. He is calm, collected, strategic, pragmatic, and acts for the good of the family (more or less), while she is arrogant, hotheaded and makes rash decisions based on her own impulses, [[ItsAllAboutMe mostly to benefit herself.]]
-->'''Jaime's thoughts:''' Their father had been as relentless and implacable as a glacier, where Cersei was all wildfire.



--> [Cersei's narration]: ''I waited, and so can [Tommen]. I waited half my life''. She had played the dutiful daughter, the blushing bride, the pliant wife. She had suffered Robert’s drunken groping, Jaime’s jealousy, Renly’s mockery, Varys with his titters, Stannis endlessly grinding his teeth. She had contended with Jon Arryn, Ned Stark, and her vile, treacherous, murderous dwarf brother, all the while promising herself that one day it would be her turn. ''If Margaery Tyrell thinks to cheat me of my hour in the sun, she had bloody well think again. ''

* BettyAndVeronica: Considers herself the Veronica to Lyanna Stark’s Betty. She once said that if Rhaegar married her like Tywin wanted, he would never have given “the wolf girl” a second look. Similarly, in her marriage with Robert she is the glamorous trophy wife to a man who still pines for his best friend’s sister.
