* BlingOfWar: Forget Jaime, Tywin or Renly's flashy suits of armour, Euron has them all beat. He has a suit of scale armour made of [[spoiler:Valyrian steel]].

According to Aeron such a thing would have "cost a kingdom" ''before'' the Doom of Valyria. These days there probably isn't enough gold in the world worth one, and absolutely no-one has ever been mentioned as owning one, even the likes of Aegon the Conqueror]].

* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: When he took Faircastle, he claimed four of Lord Farman's daughters as salt wives and gave the fifth to his brother Veron since she was "homely".

* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: When he took Faircastle, he claimed four of Lord Farman's daughters as salt wives and gave the fifth to his brother Veron since she was "homely". In fact, he had the tendency to burn through Women very quickly since he grew bored of them fast and always found a new salt wife.


Added DiffLines:

* BloodSplatteredWarrior: The reason behind his nickname the Red Kraken was that he had a tendency to be covered in blood during battle.


Added DiffLines:

* TeensAreMonsters: Dalton began [[RapePillageAndBurn reaving]] at the tender age of ten, and when he was 14, he had already claimed ''four'' salt wives.

* TooDumbToLive: Euron and Victarion successfully manage to burn the entire Lannister fleet at anchor, making more or less the entire western coastline of Westeros open for you to raid. What place does Rodrik hit first? Seagard, a fortified castle in the Riverlands lead by a [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking known badass lord]] which was built ''specifically to repulse Ironborn attacks.'' Guess what happens.

Added DiffLines:

* CultOfPersonality: Euron's years of exile and travels and his dramatic return to the Iron Islands allowed him time to build a formidable cult among both his followers and among the Ironborn. Asha Greyjoy notes during the run-up to the Kingsmoot that Euron manages to get everyone talking about him and his deeds, and debating his personality. Euron also promotes his own brand, as it were, with a personal sigil (a banner with a red eye under a crown held by crows), a nickname with AnimalMotifs (crow) and with legends such as him visiting Valyria which the likes of Rodrik Harlaw express skepticism about [[spoiler:but which the chapter ''The Forsaken'' from TWOW confirms to be true]].

Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: Euron's entry into the Iron Islands plot makes it far more serious, intense and genuinely scary than anything before. He's evil by real-world standards, by Westerosi standards ''and'' by Ironborn standards and is a competent military commander and politician to boot.

* PragmaticVillainy: During the Ironborn's Kingsmoot, Asha's platform was a promise to [[KnowWhenToFoldEm bring an end to Ironborn's involvement in the war]]. She made the point that quitting would let them consolidate their gains and allow them to live one the prosperous western shore. On the other hand, keeping up the war, would bring down the wrath of King's Landing and Stannis, which was almost certain to cost them everything they gained; and the North was simply too much land to conquer with too little to gain for their trouble. She almost convinces them, until Euron plays his "President" trump card.

* BreakTheHaughty: To the extreme, and in the absolute most sadistic way possible. [[spoiler:It begins when he returns to the Iron Islands and finds that no one, not even his own family, has any respect for him and they openly mock him. In his efforts to earn their approval he ends up committing more and more morally questionable and reprehensible acts which cost him the few friends he has and turns him into a paranoid mess. He's eventually captured and tortured into insanity by Ramsey Snow. Compare his chapters in Clash of Kings to his chapters in Dance with Dragons and you'll find there is scarcely anything left of the [[SmugSnake arrogant snake]] we once knew. The ultimate irony is that we later find out that he did have a solid base of support on the Islands.]]

* LiteralMinded: Due to the fact that he's not very good at deciphering things like symbolic metaphors, innuendo, or even sarcasm. Leads to moments such as the time he hears about the Dothraki Sea and immediately assumes its a body of water he can sail his fleet across, when the Dothraki are known far and wide as horselords who stay well away from the actual ocean.

Or thinking his niece, Asha, is making a marriage proposal to him when she suggests they share the ruling of the Iron Islands.
