* OurElvesAreBetter: [[InhumanlyBeautifulRace Unnaturally beautiful?]] Coming from a mythical land now lost? Affinity with magic? Check, check and check. Add pointy ears and they're the closest thing Westeros has to a typical race of epic fantasy High Elves.

** His [[spoiler:landing of the Golden Company on the Stormlands]] under the Dragon banner echoes the arrival of Henry Tudor in England (his banner was a Red Welsh Dragon) who likewise spent much of his reign on a continent separated by sea from his native place and most of his supporters were fellow exiles FightingForAHomeland.

** In a [[http://www.georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/ preview chapter]] for ''The Winds of Winter'', Aegon and the Golden Company have taken Storm's End. Whether he took it by force of arms or the castle surrendered is still unknown, but it is hard to imagine the garrison that Stannis Baratheon left behind giving in very easily when they are holding the one of the strongest castles in the realm. If Aegon took the castle by force then he is the first attacker to do so, ever.

** His actions are also reminiscent of Lancelot of Arthurian legend. Both were handsome, honorable men who were considered to be the greatest knights of their generations. And, like Rhaegar, Lancelot was openly infatuated with Guinevere, who was married to King Arthur, and he publicly abducted her, which resulted in wars that ultimately led to the Round Table's destruction and King Arthur being usurped and killed.

** KnightInShiningArmor: Aside from his already cited qualities and his fatal error, he's pretty much a deconstruction of the traditionally chivalrous heroes of a classic fantasy, since the readers know too well that in the CrapsackWorld of Westeros are inevitably doomed. Although a skilled warrior, RealityEnsues when he faces BloodKnight Robert Baratheon and his ''huge'' warhammer. As pointed out by Ser Jorah:

* MadDictatorsHandsomeSon: Although King Aerys was [[IWasQuiteALooker neither ugly]] [[SanitySlippage nor mad]], Rhaegar was always in the collective imagination (don't mind [[{{Archenemy}} Robert Baratheon]]) the Mad King's handsome and noble son, who'd have made a great king some day.

** Bael the Bard. The parallelism between their lives are uncanny, like it was no coincidence. The former heir of Westeros was a WarriorPrince who shared Bael's taste for [[WarriorPoet songs]], Stark ladies, [[FlowersOfRomance blue winter roses]] and [[AbductionIsLove style of courtship]]. Both love affairs brought misery to House Stark and ultimately to their deaths - Lord Brandon almost died without heirs but Bael's son with his daughter is the next Lord Stark who ends up [[{{Patricide}} killing Bael himself]]; Rhaegar Targaryen just invited a civil war that killed another Brandon Stark and ultimately leads to his death - and while Lady Stark eventually gave birth to Bael's son and commits suicide after his death, Lyanna Stark died [[spoiler: but also with the strong possibility she had just given birth to Rhaegar's son before that]].

* DeadGuyJunior: "Rhae" is a common prefix in Targaryen names (his mother's name beimg "Rhaella", for instance). Daenerys later named her son "Rhaego" and one of her dragons "Rhaegal" after her dead brother, which is sweet. One of the numerous Freys named his son Rhaegar, which is ridiculous.

** Having participated in a war to extinguish the imperial pretensions of Volantis, Aegon the Conqueror turned his sights toward Westeros. It's not known why he did this in the first place or why he refrained from pursuing conquests in Essos, though participating in said war gives some credence on the respect he had towards the system that the Free Cities achieved after the Doom and the potential that the multiple kingdoms in Westeros were wasting due to relatively petty skirmishes, leading to his unification efforts.
