* TheChessmaster: She is about as manipulative as Varys or Littlefinger. Although, presumably, her influences doesn't stretch as far as theirs does, thanks to most of her network and influence being concentrated in the Reach. The main difference is that almost no one at court is even close to aware of what she is.

* NotSoAboveItAll: Even when her reputation is just as menacing as Tywin Lannister's, she argues that her son Mace doesn't listen to her more often than not and that she has trouble controlling his glory-seeking tendencies; as such, Lady Olenna does more damage control concerning Mace than she actually does controlling him completely... just like Tywin.

* NotSoAboveItAll: Even when while her reputation among fans is just as menacing as Tywin Lannister's, Lannister's is in many ways, she argues that her son Mace just doesn't listen to her more often than not not, and that she therefore has trouble controlling his glory-seeking tendencies; as such, Lady Olenna does more damage control concerning Mace than she actually does controlling him completely... just Just like Tywin.with Tywin and his kids, then.



** In addition, both regard family as of paramount importance, but Tywin values his family mainly as an extension of his own reputation and alienates his children with unrealistic expectations, while Olenna regards most of her brood as chronic screw-ups but genuinely loves and protects them anyway. As a result, the Tyrells stick together much better than the Lannisters do.
** Even further, despite her savvy, her family doesn't seem to rigidly adhere to her as the Lannisters do to Tywin. Olenne specifically states that Mace doesn't obey her.

* UnwittingPawn: Like her son, she was manipulated by Littlefinger to ensure [[spoiler: Joffrey's death by poisoning -- however, we only have Littlefinger's word for this. How much was fully "pawn" or "unwitting" on her part is debatable. But, he certainly doctored parts of her information about Joffrey and, just so happened to be able to supply a route to a mutually beneficial solution]]. However, he most certainly ''didn't'' need to force her hand behind her back to pull it off. Or point the need out to do it.

* HiddenDepths: Margaery acts like an innocent princess, but it's shown several times that she's inherited at least some of her grandmother's cunning. They jointly investigate into Joffrey's true nature, and she easily sees through Cersei's attempts to have her condemned to death.
* TheHighQueen: Subverted. While Margaery is quite a bit more savvy than Sansa, lots of her fame as a High Queen comes not from her, but from Olenna's ''really'' good PR acts.

[[spoiler: It ''really'' doesn't go well for her.]] There's a good chance she's telling the truth too, considering her first husband preferred his brother-in-law, her second was unable to consummate [[spoiler:being killed at your own wedding will do that to ya]], and her third is a little boy. [[spoiler:Her maidenhead is ruptured, but everyone except the idiot who orders her examination is well aware that this is probably the result of her horse-riding.]]
