** In the books, Joffrey kills peasants with a crossbow, nails antlers on the heads of Stannis's supporters, and tries to convince Tywin to exterminate three Houses. The show version never commits this crimes.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Take the term with a ''huge'' grain of salt, but long after his death the show finally gets around to revealing that unlike in the books, it was Littlefinger rather than Joffrey who arranged the attack on Bran after Jaime pushed him off the tower.

Added DiffLines:

** In the series proper, Joffrey is also implied to feel this way about his "father", Robert. He is genuinely distraught over his death, holds Robert up as a king worth emulating, and praises his achievements and wartime valour. He even extols his late father's whoring, bringing it up to justify keeping Sansa as a mistress and to insult ''his own mother'', who had to deal with the humiliation of Robert's indiscretions for years.

-->'''Tyrion''': We've had vicious kings, and we've had idiot kings... but I don't know if we've ever been cursed with a vicious idiot for a king!
* StylisticSuck: Everything he gets to create after his own imagination winds up like this. When he revamps the formerly beautiful throne room in Season 2, it looks plundered rather than DarkerAndEdgier the way he intended. In "Two swords" we see a very tacky statue of him triumphing over a slain wolf. And finally there was that lowbrow dwarf jousting show at his wedding...

* NiceGuy: He's a genuinely kind person who doesn't share Joffrey's sadistic streak whatsoever, and Tywin says that this temperament will make him a good king; at the very least, he can be counted on not to be StupidEvil. This is presented as a questionable virtue for the King of Westeros, given he lacks the inherent ruthlessness needed to rule and nobody has any interest in Tommen developing a backbone.

* ProperlyParanoid: Ironically the one time his anxiety, over Dany and her army, is actually right on the mark his otherwise-correct-about-him grandfather promptly dismisses him.

* ExtremeDoormat: Having grown up sheltered all of his life, Tommen is incapable of making decisive decisions as a ruler. His mother undermines him at every turn and because he does not want to spill any blood, the Faith Militant runs roughshod over King's Landing. He's such a doormat, that the first decision he makes on his own in the series is [[DrivenToSuicide killing himself]].

* {{Jerkass}}: '''THE''' understatement to end '''''ALL''''' understatements.

to:

* {{Jerkass}}: '''THE''' understatement {{Jerkass}}: One of his most defining characteristics. Joffrey's cruelty, sadism and delightful glee in it all make him one of the most despicable characters in the setting, both in-universe and out. Perhaps his most jerkassy moment is at his own wedding, which he uses as a platform to end '''''ALL''''' understatements.humiliate Tyrion, treat everyone with disdain and put on a show that mocks his defeated foes while relatives of said foes are in bloody attendance. Loras Tyrell (his new brother-in-law) has to leave out of pure fury, Tyrion and Sansa try to, and Olenna Tyrell (the matriarch of his most powerful allies) isn't remotely pleased.
