* EnfantTerrible: On a fringe horror scale when you think about his act of [[spoiler: murdering his half-brothers, Robin and particularly Harlon. According to the latest reveal, Harlon was killed as a child by Euron. But, it said that Harlon is Quellon's first son by his first wife and that Euron is few years younger than him as he's born from Quellon's second wife. Also, it does not help that Euron reveals Robin was his ''first'' kill. There's also the fact that he apparently used to rape his brothers Aeron and Urrigon when they were all young.]]

** Gains an extra layer of awful when you consider the Euron factor. Is there a reason Victarion has convinced himself that male rape is really nothing to complain about? Like, say, being told that somebody "was just playing" with their younger brothers, so it's not such big deal, really?



* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Whatever Moqorro did to heal his hand had some impact on his personality, making him even more violent and brutal.

* DumbMuscle: Acknowledged as a "dullard" by [[WordOfGod his creator]]. Innuendos and insinuations regularly fly over his head, not to mention his belief that [[spoiler:his plan to kill Daenerys' husband, steal her dragons and force her to marry him will end in anything other than disaster.]]

* DumbMuscle: Acknowledged as a "dullard" by [[WordOfGod his creator]]. Innuendos and insinuations regularly fly over his head, he rarely stops to look beyond the surface of such things as being offered a free healing[[spoiler: and upgrade (stopping to wonder about the actual price of this BloodMagic or whether it would really work at all as advertised might have been a good idea)]], not to mention his belief that [[spoiler:his plan to kill Daenerys' husband, steal her dragons and force her to marry him will end in anything other than disaster.]] Yeah. He occasionally gets to hold the SmartBall, but it is only ''very'' occasionally.

* 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 with -- at least not yet (working on it; ta, thanks). Love of using black? Check. Strange magical powers? Check. Cruelty and glaringly evident insanity? Check. A generous and egalitarian approach to murder, slaughter and general carnage? Check. Use of slavery? Check. Ominous appearance? ''Check.'' Oh... and [[spoiler: an [[ApocalypseHow old school]] Evil Guy goal using the LeakingCanOfEvil (aka, [[EvilIsNotAToy the Others]] and [[ApocalypseHow their Long Winter]]) because... reasons? Check.]] It helps that he comes from a culture that values strength over everything else, so that many of Ironborn go along with him without asking too many of the right questions.

Added DiffLines:

* ThePeterPrinciple: An odd case. During his rise to power, he's smooth enough of a manipulator and politico to gather up support and weaken his rivals, but when it comes to actually doing the ruling, he's actually not that effective without his megalomaniacal promises to lean on.

* 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.
* BloodKnight: He was known for being bloodthirsty.

* BloodKnight: He was known for being bloodthirsty. The Blacks were able to exploit this during the Dance of Dragons to get him on their side by giving Dalton free rein to plunder the coast of the Westerlands as he pleased.



* CreateYourOwnVillain: The Blacks gave Dalton free rein to plunder the coast of the Westerlands during the Dance of Dragons to keep him on their side. After the Dance ended, when King Aegon III commanded Dalton to cease his reaving, Dalton ignored him and carried on as before.



* WiseBeyondHisYears: Instead of immediately jumping at the Greens offer like many young lords would have done, Dalton wisely waited for the Blacks better counteroffer.

* EvilerThanThou: The Ironborn are no saints themselves, but Euron manages to take their pillaging culture and desire for power to outright monstrous levels.

* AssholeVictim: ZigZagged. Though Ramsay is a MUCH worse person, and what Theon went through at his hands is so horrific that it's more terrifying and heartbreaking than anything close to satisfying, Theon himself is [[SmugSnake no]] [[JerkJock innocent]]. To explain [[spoiler:the deeds that put him into AssholeVictim territory. He betrayed House Stark and laid siege to Winterfell primarily as a result of his own insecurities regarding his standing with House Grevjoy, and he cruelly [[WouldHurtAChild killed two innocent farmer's children to pass them off as Bran and Rickon]]]]
