* BigBrotherBully: Somehow manages to be a worse older sibling than Gregor Clegane. [[spoiler:Even Gregor never raped Sandor as a child, and that's exactly what Euron did to both Aeron and Urrigon. He also murdered his youngest brother, Robin, and even his elder brother Harlon, who was already dying.]] He certainly hasn't gotten better as an adult, emotionally abusing his remaining siblings, possibly raping Victarion's beloved wife to [[HonorBeforeReason force Victarion to kill her]], and later [[spoiler:giving Aeron [[ColdBloodedTorture the full Bolton experience]] aboard the ''Silence''.]]

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Has his moments; his recollection of a dream in which he could fly (see below) has him mention that when he woke up he was told by everyone that it was just a dream and that (obviously) he can't really fly. He then says something to the effect of: "But how can I know for certain that I can't fly unless I try by jumping out of the window?", and he implies that he would be willing to risk almost certain death to find out.

When he claims to have tossed a dragon-egg-shaped king's ransom into the waves simply just because and for no real reason, most listeners seem to think it's the kind of thing he would actually do, so don't really ask questions about how metaphorically he might be talking.



* EvilOverlord: Seriously, he's the closest the series gets to the classical mold, even if he doesn't have enough power to back it up, at least not yet. Love of using black? Check. Strange magical powers? Check. Cruelty and glaringly evident insanity? Check. Ominous appearance? ''Check.'' It helps that he comes from a culture that values strength over everything else.

* TheReveal: According to a chapter from Winds that GRRM read at Balticon, [[spoiler: Euron killed Harlon and Robin. He merely pinched Harlon's nose and let the greyscale do the rest. It's unknown how he killed Robin, but there are references to him having a 'soft head'. One has to wonder just how much cruelty was involved in these ostensibly [[Mercy Kill Mercy Killings]] and just how much they screwed with Euron's head. Especially since he didn't catch any fallout from them at all.]]

* PosthumousCharacter: The four of them. The current Greyjoys did not interact with their older three brothers. They did interact with Robin and they didn't like him a bit.

* EyepatchOfPower: Adds to his sinister reputation; It has yet to be explained what lurks beneath it.
** His visible eye is frequently called his "smiling eye", so presumably whatever is underneath the patch got him the nickname "Crow's Eye".

Added DiffLines:

* SmartBall: Despite not being very bright, he does see (part of) the scheme behind why Euron is rewarding the followers of other lords and captains with the Shield Islands, and that doing so weakens Euron's potential rivals.

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenBackupPrince: An accidental version; his sister was defeated at the kingsmoot, but it's pointed out that Theon (who was a prisoner elsewhere at the time) can argue that the decision to elect Crows Eye was invalid because Theon wasn't present to argue his claim to the throne.
