** To Jaime Lannister. They are both among the greatest warriors of the current generation, and command fearsome reputations as well as NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast. Both are deeply conflicted over their lovers' alleged infidelity, stress over their place in Medieval society and how people perceive them, and undergo major personality changes after suffering a traumatic wound to their hands. Jaime will forever be seen as dishonorable for slaying the Mad King, who was going to burn King's Landing to the ground, whereas Victarion beat his own wife to death to secure his honor after his brother had his way with her and he is respected by his culture for doing so. Jaime is cunning, witty and charming, while Victarion is conventional, dull and not too bright. Also, Jaime loses his hand and later resolves to be a better person, but when Victarion's maimed hand is healed and changed by Moqorro, he becomes less honorable and duty-bound and more brutal and self-serving.

* {{Foil}}: To Jon Snow. Both feel like outsiders, both are raised at Winterfell, and both experience identity issues that have left them bitter and with the desire to prove themselves. While Jon Snow faces societal prejudice for being an illegitimate child who does not even know the identity of his mother, he is loved by his father, siblings, and uncle, and is raised alongside his siblings by his father Ned Stark. Theon -- though he is the new heir to the Iron Islands -- is sent away to another family as a hostage at a young age, raised away from his family, was bullied by his brothers before he was sent to the Starks, and his father treats him poorly. Jon is a blood Stark in all but name and raised as part of his family as Ned Stark's son. Theon has the family name but is a Greyjoy raised as a ward among all of Ned Stark's children to keep his father Baelon from rebelling again. Both Jon and Theon shared very close relationships with Robb, Jon's half-brother and who Theon regarded as a surrogate brother. Theon loves and is loved by his sister and Jon loves and is loved by his siblings. However, while Jon decides to join the Night's Watch for the sake of honor and duty, has risen to Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, and [[spoiler:might possibly be the heir to the Iron Throne]], Theon becomes a traitor for the sake of winning his father's approval. He fails at keeping Winterfell after he captured it in an effort to gain affection from aforementioned father [[spoiler:and was later tortured into thinking he was a servant named Reek]].
* FreudianExcuse: He had a pretty miserable time at the hands of [[BigBrotherBully his brothers]] as a kid. Then at ten he was essentially kidnapped, removed from his family, home, and culture and expected to live by a [[ValuesDissonance completely different set of values]]. Not to mention that the stranger he was expected to love as a father would have beheaded him with the sword that he, Theon, carried for him and handed him for executions, the moment word came of another rebellion by Balon.

* SkewedPriorities: By the way he carries himself with Theon, it's clear that he worries more about Theon not being under his power to be used against him than Theon being alive and safe.

* ImpliedTrope: MoralityChain. He was one to Aeron, and itt's heavily implied that Urri's death allowed Euron to molest him unimpeded. Aeron grew into a broken man that sought alcohol and joviality, and later religious fanaticism to cope with the trauma caused by this missing link.
