[[spoiler: So far though, Wyman has been more successful and open about his motives. They also both have female relatives (Doran's daughter Arianne and bastard nieces the Sand Snakes, and Wyman's younger granddaughter Wylla) who more openly want revenge]].

* Prince Daemon Targaryen. Daemon is the younger, more adventurous brother of the current regent (Viserys I and Prince Doran Martell), unencumbered by the throes of government that their brothers had to deal with, they were fathers of multiple children by multiple women and [[spoiler: they both died with a TakingYouWithMe gambit by bringing justice to terrible acts of war that constituted not only war crimes but also personal attacks against them (Oberyn taking vengeance against Gregor Clegane for the death of Elia, his sister; Daemon taking vengeance against Aemond for the murder of Lucerys, his surrogate son).]]

* FacePalmOfDoom: How [[spoiler: Gregor Clegane kills him]], described in [[NightmareFuel detail]].
* {{Foil}}:
** Robert Baratheon. Had Robert not physically degenerated and had been a good parent, he'd be Oberyn.
** Arya Stark. They both specializes in an acrobatic form of combat and want to avenge their murdered families.
** Ned Stark. They were on opposite sides of the incident of the Queen of Love and Beauty on the Tourney at Harrenhal (Ned being Lyanna's brother, Oberyn being Elia's) and never got over their deaths. They both traveled later to King's Landing on royal ordinance after pacts of betrothed were arranged between their families and the Crown (Sansa and Joffrey; Myrcella and Trystane) and [[spoiler: neither left alive to tell the tale.]]

* FriendlyEnemy: He hates the Lannisters and is very bad at concealing it. Nevertheless, it's clear he's enjoying every minute of his SnarkToSnarkCombat with Tyrion. [[spoiler: And they have an EnemyMine moment when he offers to be his champions in the trial by combat]].

Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedSpouse: While their relationship was by all accounts far better than [[DomesticAbuse his parents']], Rhaegar is hinted to have felt this way about his wife Elia, since Daenerys thinks it says a lot when Barristan Selmy says Rhaegar was only "fond" of her. If so it might help explain why Rhaegar took such an uncharacteristically reckless action as [[UnreliableNarrator allegedly]] kidnapping Lyanna Stark while still married to Elia and in the process kickstarted the civil war that ultimately brought down the dynasty.
