** However, that one peasant's opinion of Aerys may not represent the majority of smallfolk. Most correctly thought that he was just a figurehead while Tywin was the one who truly ran the kingdom and it was under Aerys' reign that Tywin revoked all the rights and protections granted to the smallfolk by Aegon V. Furthermore, Aerys locked himself away in the Red Keep for years after he went mad and when he made a public appearance hoping to win the people's support, they were repulsed by his crazed appearance and erratic behavior.

* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: Invoked. Tyrion notices that he's way too handsome to be Griff's "son".


Added DiffLines:

* TheUnreveal: While it's known that Varys scampered him out of Westeros as a babe, and intends to place him as a more suitable King, it's not entirely known why Varys did not sought Rhaegar, why he tampered with the prince's relationship with Aerys, or why the prince wasn't a suitable candidate in Varys' eyes even when he is almost universally loved and remembered fondly. In other words, why Rhaegar was OK to be sacrificed in place of Aegon.

** Balerion was the biggest, baddest dragon that ever lived. Aegon I, Balerion's rider, achieved an unparalleled feat in history by forging the Seven Kingdoms into one, to the point that Westeros now reckons years by [[HitSoHardTheCalendarFeltIt Before and After the Conquest]].

Balerion's death in the reign of Viserys I (his last rider) was an omen of House Targaryen's long, slow decline.

* BroughtDownToNormal: The Targaryens were still formidable without their dragons. Though they found it harder to intimidate and force their vassals to make reforms.

* FantasticScience: The Targaryens are surprisingly healthy and ''physically sound'' even after hundreds (if not thousands) of years of inbreeding, suggesting that there is a magical, unnatural aspect to their genetics. The norm is almost constant save from a handful of individuals who have had deformities and feeble physiques; their state of mind is an entirely different aspect.

* HotBlooded: As a general rule, Targaryens are extremely passionate and high-tempered, regardless of their individual, baseline sanity levels.

* TheMissingFaction: Though by no means the last Valyrian survivors, House Targaryen were conspicuously the last extant Valyrian dragonlords. Whatever other dragonlords that survived the Doom died and disappeared shortly thereafter, leaven the Targaryens on their own. This has overtones of TheProphecy and even hints of foul play, but any defining circumstances surrounding the Doom went up in flames and are lost in time.

Added DiffLines:

* OppositesAttract: Invoked. House Targaryen shares a connection with House Stark that remains unfulfilled. The Starks are the ice to the Targaryen fire, and there is an implied power to be had from this union in the same degree that there's a connection between the Free Men and the Valyrians. The most significant connection between the latter two races of men comes with the birth of Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers, a tremendously powerful and influential individual that came from the union of House Targaryen (Vayrians) and House Blackwood (First Men). The first and only time the Targaryen-Stark connection came close to fruition was through the "Pact of Ice and Fire", a deal to marry a Targaryen princess with a Stark boy, which fell through due to the high casualties of the Targaryen Royal Family during the Dance of the Dragons.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfBlood: Invoked. It's implied to be the key to their dragon hatching and binding, and one of the possible reasons why they kept incestuous relationships as to not lose this ability; they eventually did lose it with no reason, but after hundreds of years of failed attempts, Daenerys Targaryen was just as inexplicably able to hatch dragon eggs.

* TheUnreveal: While it's known why the Targaryens were spared from the Doom of Valyria, it hasn't been revealed why other Valyrian dragonlords didn't; even the scattered few that survived did so for a considerably short time.

** It's not entirely clear why the Targaryen dragon cache died out or why they were unsuccessful in hatching new dragons after the mass casualties of the Dance of the Dragons.
** In the same measure, it hasn't been revealed (yet) why, among all people and multiple attempts, Daenerys Targaryen was able to hatch her dragon eggs after hundreds of years.
