* BookDumb: She's not illiterate and certainly has never been denied the use of the extensive Martell libraries. The problem is... she tunes out if she finds the contents of books dry or lacking in romance and spice. In effect, she's a doer and not a natural reader.



* UnreliableNarrator: Poor lass; she's trying to up her game, but all too often listens to the opinions of others without double-checking what is said vs what can be seen. [[spoiler: She seems to buy into the reports of the Stormlands being ravaged by the Golden Company, even though none of the landscape or smallfolk she describes remotely come close to the real harrowing of the Riverlanders we've witnessed under Gregor Clegane's crew. She is too unskilled and [[BookDumb ignorant]] to realise this, though.]]

* UnreliableNarrator: Poor lass; she's trying to up her game, but all too often listens to the opinions of others without double-checking what is said vs what can be seen. She also tends to give more weight to sights and ideas she can put a narrative spin on over things she finds dull or boring.

* BeautifulAllAlong: It's mentioned that Arianne had a very awkward adolescence, being pudgy and unremarkable. Her prayers for beauty were answered indeed.

Added DiffLines:

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She trusted ''[[DevilInPlainSight Darkstar]]'' with far too much (even though she had some reservations, she never put contingencies in place), for crying out loud! Worse, at least two of her most-trusted childhood friends have been reporting on her to her father ''for years'' without her picking up on it (she still doesn't know who they are, and is in no rush to find out if they are the only moles embedded in her circle, either). She also often takes the initial people she meets at face value, even though she's supposed to be gathering intel from numerous sources in the Stormlands.

Added DiffLines:

* TheAce: One of the most striking examples of the series, comparable to Rhaegar. Knows no fear, extremely competent fighter (who even manages to win against [[TheDreaded Gregor Clegane]]), very charismatic, and of genius-level intelligence (studied the craft of the maesters basically for fun).

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler: Throughout their entire duel, Oberyn demanded that Gregor Clegane confess to raping his sister and killing her and her children. At the end of the battle, Clegane finally does confess... but only after he's begun smashing Oberyn's face in.]]
