* TheUnreveal: The circumstances on which Varys survived the Lannisters' Sack of King's Landing, was pardoned and later came into the employ of King Robert are not entirely clear; this is supposedly due to the great value of his network of spies. Where others were executed or sent to the Wall, Varys was entirely unscathed and unpunished.

** It's considered that the relationship between King Aerys II and his son Rhaegar soured because of Varys' influence. Even if his purpose seems to be [[spoiler:bringing the Targaryens back]], it's not known why Varys did not deem Rhaegar a suitable candidate for the Iron Throne even when everyone sings praises for the late prince.

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: At a young age, Cersei received a prophecy: [[spoiler:her children would all be crowned and all die before she did, a younger woman would replace her, and "the valonqar"—a younger brother, in this case—would kill her]].

She has always deemed Tyrion to be this valonqar, and this is one of the main reasons she has always hated him. The thing is, this younger brother might be also Jaime, who is minutes younger than her; also, the prophecy doesn't say that it has to be ''her'' younger brother, as for instance Loras Tyrell is the youngest Tyrell brother, making him another possibility]].

* HiddenAgendaVillain: He's entrusted to House Lannister because they give him leeway to his research, but it's not exactly clear whose agenda he's pursuing; it's certainly neither the Lannisters' nor the Order of the Maesters'.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the evil queen of fairy tales. Cersei is vain, selfish, sexually loose, and actively makes people fear her as a way to control them. But these all make her a terrible ruler who is terrible at controlling others effectively and makes her blind to her real enemies that are using her.

Added DiffLines:

** To Brienne of Tarth, in that they are both women who despise the gender roles they have been shoved into by Westerosi society. However, while Brienne actively rebels against it in the pursuit of her dreams, has not let it crush her idealism (yet), and her sheer passion and determination has won her companions that consistently offer help when she needs it (such as Renly Baratheon, Catelyn Stark, Jamie Lannister, Podrick Payne, etc); Cersei has long since resigned herself to the role, content to just bitterly complaining about it and using whatever means of pleasure that can momentarily distract her. This behavior had since alienated anyone who could effectively assist her.

* AcceptableTargets: Cersei is one in-universe. Her reputation as "the slutty and evil Queen" tends to be exaggerated, and he is often blamed for Joffrey's insane deeds. That being said, she is rightly accused of being a woman who counts her brother among her lovers, and she is largely responsible for how Joffrey turns out.
** The exaggeration part is debatable, considering that Cersei despite being the Queen Regent & having the authority to overrule the underage Jofferey, never ever uses her power to stop Jofferey from performing any of his sadistic acts. Also by the time of AFFC she has stooped to the level of sleeping with the Kettleblacks(who are barely a step up from goons for hire).
