** He's also the only one to be wary of Danaerys and her dragons, and wants to do something about them, while Tywin dismisses them as "curiosities" not worth his attention. Come Season 6 and, indeed, Dany arrives in Westeros and her dragons wreck the Lannister forces.

* TheUnfavorite: Cersei spoiled Joffrey and repeatedly stated that she missed Myrcella, bitter and angry that Tyrion sent her to Dorne. When the latter two died, she was heartbroken. Tommen on the other hand rarely gets much open affection from his mother, who repeatedly condescends to him and while Cersei spared him from going to the Sept, she doesn't seem too miffed that Tommen committed suicide. This probably explains why Tommen was such a pushover, he was always looking for some form of open affection and attention. Indeed, after Tommen's suicide, which Jaime is devastated by, Cersei dismisses him as a traitor not worth mourning. Meanwhile, even after Tommen's death, Cersei is still shown being deeply affected by Myrcella and Joffrey's murders. In "The Queen's Justice", Cersei confronts an imprisoned Ellaria Sand and is almost in tears as she calls her out on murdering Myrcella before taking special glee in setting things up so that Tyene dies the same way Myrcella did (with Ellaria forced to watch). In "Eastwatch", learning that Olenna Tyrell was the one who orchestrated Joffrey's poisoning is enough to stir Cersei greatly, and she immediately wishes that Jaime hadn't convinced her to offer Olenna a painless MercyKill beforehand.

* ArchEnemy: He tries to be this to Robb Stark, but although Robb Stark hates his guts, Robb considers Tywin to be his true threat. Stannis Baratheon wa the main threat to Joffrey's reign, and Joffrey boasted about defeating Stannis at the Battle of Blackwater Bay, even though Tyrion and Tywin were the ones who actually did so. Joffrey also went out of his way to torment Tyrion and Sansa over the years, and he was at the top of Arya Stark's revenge list.

* HiddenDepths: Despite his absolutely disgusting behavior and actions; Joffrey has some qualities that are hard to notice. When he talks with Margaery Tyrell he can recite facts about many members of the Targaeryn Dynasty without so much as skipping a beat, likewise he shows an interest in the acts of many famed Kingsguard Knights and can easily recite information from a name by reading it alone. Tyrion for his credit notices Joffrey's love of history and gifts him a book of many great kings of the older ages.

to:

* HeroWorshipper: In the ''Histories and Lore'' DVD extra about the Red Keep Creator/JackGleeson narrates (in-character as Joffrey), it's heavily implied that the Targaryen king he admires best is ''[[TheBluebeard Maegor the Cruel]]''. It's pretty telling that [[EvilCannotComprehendGood his idea of a good ruler is pretty much the harshest and most brutal of his predecessors]].

* RuleOfSymbolism: The House sigil is a quartering[[note]]the process of combining sigils; specifically, two sigils are ''impaled'' (i.e. given equal space)[[/note]] of the Baratheon Stag and the Lannister Lion--and yet the tail of the Lion hovers menacingly above the Stag's own field--subtly emphasizing that it is really House Lannister calling the shots behind them.
