* {{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."

** He is frustrated that Penny has such a cheerful and hopeful personality, thinking her naive to how terrible the world around her is. However, he himself struggles to accept the fact that without his nobility backing him, he's just another dwarf and his disrespectful attitude and reluctance to submit to others could easily get him killed.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: The Lannisters don't have warging powers like the Stark children, or dragons like the Targaryens, or even the power of a god like the Lord of Light. What the Lannisters do have, however, is gold. Gold that they parlay into tremendous military and political power to support their family legacy. Indeed, the Lannisters tend be serious skeptics about all things magical and are not easily intimidated by news of dragons rising in the east.

Added DiffLines:

* BrutalHonesty: Tyrion doesn't hesitate to speak his mind when he thinks the situation calls for it. This often gains him [[RefugeInAudacity respect for his earnestness]], but also lands him in problems from time to time when his abrupt input is not appreciated. Along with his [[DeadpanSnarker dry humor]], it's all part of his StepfordSnarker armour, and [[SelfDeprecatingHumor he doesn't spare even himself]] from this treatment. As he tells to [[ShelteredAristocrat Jon Snow]] before befriending him.
-->'''Tyrion Lannister:''' Did I offend you? Sorry. Dwarfs donít have to be tactful. Generations of capering fools in motley have won me the right to dress badly and say any damn thing that comes into my head.


Added DiffLines:

* EnragedByIdiocy: Usually vents it with derision when it comes to people of average intelligence and below, Tyrion has a limit and takes out his wrath on Joffrey, with very good reasons as his royal nephew's stupidity could potentially cost them the war.


Added DiffLines:

* MaternalDeathBlameTheChild: Tywin seems to actively loathe Tyrion for killing his beloved Joanna, and the fact that he's a stunted dwarf doesn't help matters.


Added DiffLines:

* OddFriendship: [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow]] befriends him, of all people.


Added DiffLines:

** But TheBusCameBack in ''Literature/ADanceWithDragons'' [[spoiler: with his CharacterArc being recovering from all the grievous mess he suffered [[Literature/AStormOfSwords two books ago]] and trying to reach Daenerys to join her cause]].
* RenaissanceMan: Tyrion's dwarfism forbade him to ever be trained in combat but the guy knows his stuff with a terribly vast knowledge that spaces from politics to war strategy to engineering to municipal works administration, and despite his dwarfism he's also brave enough to [[HandicappedBadass lead men in battle when it's required]].

Added DiffLines:

** Likes to claim that when a soldier makes a mistake, it is the commander's fault. When one of his soldiers makes a mistake (e.g. Gregor Clegane and Amory Lorch's brutal murder of Rhaegar's wife and children) he claims he cannot be held responsible.

* UncannyFamilyResemblance: She can easily pass off as Myrcella. Given they are cousins on both sides Myrcella's turned-on-itself family tree, this is hardly surprising.

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedSuccessor: After ADWD, he is one of the few Lannisters that remains who has both feet on the ground and a legitimate claim aside from his cousin-once-removed Daven. Problem is, he's just a kid.

* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: He is one of the first (if not the very first) Lannister that is named Warden of the West without being himself neither the head of the House nor the Lord of Casterly Rock. When [[spoiler:Kevan is assassinated]], no one remains to take those titles from him unless Tyrion is able to successfully stake his claim on the Rock in the near future.



* UnexpectedSuccessor: Despite being a cousin far down the line of succession, Daven is appointed [[spoiler: Warden of the West by Cersei after Tywin is killed. He thinks it should have gone to Kevan, but accepted the position out of duty. This becomes a moot point later when Kevan himself dies]].

** Until Tyrion returns to Westeros (if he ever does so), Daven [[spoiler:might have to assume the role of Lord of Casterly Rock too, because there's just no one else]].
