Styling himself King Viserys, the Third of His Name. The second born and eldest surviving child of Aerys II and Rhaella. Exiled prince of House Targaryen and the older brother of Daenerys, who lives with her in hiding at the beginning of the series. Unlike Dany, he lived as a prince in his childhood and knew his family, but was still very young when he lost everything overnight. A young man with serious mental problems, Viserys has made it his goal in life to return to Westeros and take back the throne. Too bad he foams at the mouth, regularly pinches his sister's boobs and refers to himself as "the dragon".

** He also inherited his father's mental instabilities, [[MiddleChildSyndrome and compared to his]] [[BadassPrincess younger sister Daenerys]] [[TheWisePrince and older brother Rhaegar]] ([[TheAce who are repeatedly noted to be awesome at pretty much]] ''[[TheAce anything]]'' [[TheAce they do]]) Viserys comes off as quite unimpressive. He was essentially screwed from ''birth''.

* HeirClubForMen: His general assumption, along with that of the Golden Company, is that he will be king with Daenerys as his HotConsort. Tyrion pitilessly mocks him for this presumption, noting that the obvious flaws in assuming that Dany, a YoungConqueror in her own right with three dragons, would ever choose to consent to play second fiddle to a kid who lived in a hidey-hole should have been a bit more self-evident.

* SpannerInTheWorks: He is certainly less powerful than Daenerys (she has dragons and Unsullied, and may have an opportunity to add more Dothraki to her side, whereas all he has is a bunch of mercenaries). Plus, those dragons make it a lot easier to call Dany the truer descendant of Aegon the Conqueror. And while Aegon does have the support of the Golden Company, by far the most respectable sellsword army in the world, they are associated in Westeros with traitors, pretenders and other general fakers; their very presence makes Aegon look like a sore loser. But there is one simple fact that makes him more relevant than his aunt: he is a member of the HeirClubForMen, and his claim to the throne takes precedence over hers. Double-spanners, hoi!

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: ''The'' most hated of all the Targaryen kings, though that could also stem from him being the most recent and one of the only ones in living memory. Having said that, getting almost every single Lord Paramount to not only hate your guts, but be willing to take you down? Only Maegor "the Cruel" also holds that distinction... So, it's probably fairly earned.

[[PlayedWith That said]], during Gregor Clegane's rampage through the crownlands, Arya forgets herself and asks an elderly prisoner to elaborate when he claims to miss the "old king", assuming it to be Robert. It's Aerys, "gods grace him", whom the old man claims would never have stood for the Mountain's atrocities. At the very least, it seems the smallfolk suffered at Aerys' hands far less than the highborn did.
