* Irony: Ned overthrew the Mad King Aerys who had executed his father and brother in King's Landing on false charges of treason, and he won the civil war despite actually betraying the rightful Targaryen dynasty. The result of his victory? Ned is ultimately executed as a traitor in King's Landing after attempting to overthrow another Mad King, the son of the man Ned himself had installed on the throne, who was in fact a bastard and not the king which Ned owed allegiance to.

* HypercompetentSidekick: During the Rebellion he was this to Robert. He was almost Robert's equal in combat, and was much smarter and more down to earth, and proved a much better peacetime leader as Lord of Winterfell than Robert did as king. As well as that, he was the one who won the Battle of the Bells and the one who took control of Kings Landing after Tywin sacked it. As Cersei pointed out, if he had simply sat on the Iron Throne after forcing Jaime off it, a lot of people would have supported his claim over Robert's.

* TheBerserker: He's on his way. Heck, he's only five, and proves a nightmare handful for a group of adults to subdue... and without having Shaggydog as external backup, either. With Shaggydog tag-teaming physically, we're talking outright fatalities -- in the very definite plural.

* HotBlooded: Rickon is quite temperamental -- and that's putting it mildly.

* DoomedMoralVictor: Subverted. [[spoiler: He died a traitor after being forced to plead guilty to prevent war, at which Joffrey executed him anyway]]. However, this ends up DoubleSubverted in the long run, [[spoiler: as Ned is still very well respected outside of the Lannisters and remembered in a positive light by many of the Lannisters opponents, with many fondly recalling his rule and seeing his death not as that of a traitor but as a wrongful execution.]]

** In AFFC, [[spoiler: as she becomes the ''de facto'' Lady of the Eyrie after Lysa Arryn's death]]. She manages the household while Littlefinger is away and serves as Sweetrobin's primary caregiver. Subverted though, because this doesn't stop her from thinking about giving him a slap or two for getting on her nerves [[spoiler: or slowly killing him by poisoning him with Sweetsleep. Maester Colemon warns her against making him give this to Robert. Per Littlefinger's instruction, she insists he give him unhealthy amounts anyway, thinking, "Maester Colemon cares only for the boy, though. Father and I have larger concerns."]]

** She had the choice to bear the captivity of her daughters (hard), or to deprive the King in the North from his most important hostage in an effort to free them (easy); [[spoiler:she took the latter, cost the war to the North and led to her and the Northern host to be slaughtered at the Red Wedding]].

* SanitySlippage: After [[spoiler:witnessing Robb's death and coming back from the dead]], her sanity seems questionable at best.

But after [[spoiler:witnessing Robb's death and coming back from the dead]], her sanity seems questionable at best.



* VengefulWidow: She started out a CrusadingWidow, but [[spoiler:her resurrection post-Red Wedding has turned her into a murderous woman out only for her enemies' blood.]]



** She also blames Jaime, even though there's no possible way that he could have made it to King's Landing by the time the news reaches her. Then, when the Brotherhood Without Banners captures Brienne, [[spoiler:Catelyn sees Oathkeeper, Brienne's new Jaime-provided longsword, and immediately decides that Brienne has ''also'' betrayed her, condemning the young woman who served her faithfully to death without listening to her explanation. Though, at that point, she's not really Cat anymore]]
