* HappilyMarried: He adores his wife. The only reason why the reader never encounters Dorna is not because Kevan has shut her away, but because he believes that she would hate the [[DecadentCourt Royal Court]] due to her quiet and sensitive nature, and so they've arranged for her to stay at home with their younger children.

[[spoiler:Given that Robert's children are really the bastards of Jaime and Cersei,]] the Lannisters are the de-facto rulers of the Seven Kingdoms.

* AbusiveParents: Tywin has never forgiven Tyrion for Joanna's death. When Tywin found out Tyrion wedded a common girl, he commanded Jaime to say that Tysha was a prostitute, whom Jaime had hired for to take Tyrion's virginity. Because the “whore” had presumed to marry a Lannister, Tywin had his guards rape Tysha for a silver each and then made Tyrion go last for a gold coin, stating that a Lannister was worth more. He also doesn't believe his children should decide who they marry, keeping the right of marriage selection to himself, even if it causes great distress in his children.

* {{Badass}}: There's a reason he's treated as the BigBad instead of Joffrey by the Starks.
** Not content at being a FourStarBadass, he's also a BadassBureaucrat with enough ability with [[XanatosSpeedChess speedchess]] to make an opponent worried. Assurances given key people, a well written message here and there, carrot-and-stick diplomacy... Dark wings can win you things, if you know what you're doing and time things well. And, he's not been a Hand of so many years experience for no reason.



* BerserkButton: Any threat or slight toward his family gets paid back with extreme prejudice, [[RichesToRags one way]] or [[RapePillageAndBurn another]].

* FreudianExcuse: Tywin's own father was a kind, light-hearted man who was thought weak and laughed at by his own bannermen, so Tywin resolved not to let this happen to himself.

* AnAxeToGrind: Has never handled an axe before the series starts, but makes good use of one in the Vale and the Battle of the Blackwater.

* {{Hypocrite}}: While genuinely sympathetic and mistreated (and a good mate to any he commits himself to), the fact is Tyrion wants gorgeous young women like Shae and [[spoiler:Sansa]] to look past his undesirable appearance to appreciate him as a mate, while Tyrion himself won't tolerate an unattractive mate. It's implied that he only chooses attractive prostitutes when he goes out whoring, specifically orders Bronn to bring him an attractive whore when he first gets Shae (and Tyrion scrutinizes her appearance when he first sees her, prepared to send her back if she isn't pretty enough), and shudders at the idea of marrying Lollys, who isn't ugly so much as plump, plain, and "soft in the head."

* KickTheSonOfABitch: The [[spoiler:cold-blooded killing of his father]] is pretty brutal, but his victim is such an unlikable character that it's hard not for many readers to cheer him on.

* BornLucky:
** Tywin's victory of the War of the Five Kings ultimately comes down to an amazing stroke of good fortune. The decisive factors [[spoiler:for his victory over the Starks and the Baratheons]] come from Tyrion Lannister sending Littlefinger to form an alliance with the Tyrells after recieving word of Renly's death as well as his innovative and competent siege prepearations and defense of King's Landing. However, even then that would not have been enough as Tywin had ridden west taking Robb Stark's bait of leaving the Riverlands by returning home. Had it not been for Edmure Tully's engagement which Tywin lost, he would have been too far to receive word of Stannis' attack and the Tyrells change of alliances. This created the conditions for his timely intervention at Blackwater, grabbing victory from the jaws of defeat.
** Likewise, Tywin and his army would have been blown up by Aerys II's [[GreekFire wildfire]], which he kept secret from both Grand Maester Pycelle and Varys but not to Jaime and his pyromancers. Had Jaime not abandoned his oaths at that moment, or Aerys not seen fit to keep him in his company, Tywin and his army would have been burnt to smithereens.

Added DiffLines:

* GangOfHats: At first it's played straight, with all the Lannisters bar Tyrion portrayed as greedy, vain, and corrupt snobs- Tywin, Jaime, Joffrey, Cersei and to a lesser extent Lancel all fitting under this category. However, as the story goes on, we find Lannisters with vastly different personalities, ranging from the naïve and well-meaning (Tytos and Tommen), innocent (Willem, Tyrek, and Myrcella), and incompetent(Stafford) to the reasonable (Kevan, Genna, and Tygett), kind (Gerion), heroic (Daven, and [[spoiler: post-character development Jaime]])and devout (Lancel).
