* LovetoHate: Iwan Rheon's performance as Ramsay is praised and Ramsay himself has shown himself to be a far superior villain than Joffrey. He is an intelligent and deadly archer and he is able to outsmart many people with different tactics. That is something to admire in a despicable character like him.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture:
** They are basically a Northern European medieval version of Wallachia under Vlad Tepes of House Draculesti. Yes, that one.
** Their tradition of flaying also brings to mind the actual Aztec religious cult of Xipe Totec, which involved just as much skinning; even if the Boltons' flaying is actually [[RealityIsUnrealistic a toned-down version.]]
** And in a more obscure but very poignant way, the Swedish House of Trolle. They both ancient houses, carry a ridicolously violent banners (the Boltons have a flayed man, House of Trolle a [[http://wappenwiki.org/images/thumb/1/19/Trolle.svg/516px-Trolle.svg.png decapitated troll]]) and they betray their northern comrades who wish independence from the southern king at a feast, where the gates are looked and all of the rebels are put to the sword. Just google ''Stockholm's Bloodbath''. And yes, Trolle does mean [[NamesToRunFromRealFast Troll]].

* TheSociopath: A high-functioning example. He initially appears to be a [[NobleDemon brutal yet trustworthy lord in Robb Stark's service]] but is revealed to be a depraved opportunist who [[{{Sadist}} delights in all forms of cruelty]] and [[ItsAllAboutMe harbors no loyalties to anyone but himself]] . While [[PragmaticVillainy savvy enough to act modest and polite when it serves his own interests]], Roose [[ForTheEvulz never passes up a chance to torment others for his own amusement]] if he can get away with it as seen when he fools a captured Jaime into believing Cersei is dead and silently taunts Catelyn Stark with the prospect of her family's impending massacre. Moreover, he shows no attachment toward those around him including his own son, Ramsay, whom [[WordOfGod canon]] confirms he [[ParentalNeglect all but ignored]] until [[SpareToTheThrone the death of his firstborn son left him without an heir]]. Ultimately, any doubt as to Roose's [[LackOfEmpathy lack of empathy]] and [[AboveGoodAndEvil absence of a conscience]] is put to rest when he [[RapeIsASpecialKindofEvil smugly recounts to a stunned Ramsay how he brutally raped his mother]].

* AssholeVictim: Arguably the biggest example in the history of the series. Him being torn apart by his own hounds is one of the most horrific deaths, and possibly the most thoroughly deserved.

In addition to being an EvilCounterpart to Jon Snow, Ramsay becomes a personal enemy to Jon by abusing Jon's sister Sansa, holding Jon's brother Rickon hostage [[spoiler: and later killing him]], and ruling the North from Jon's childhood home of Winterfell. Although Rickon Stark on his own is a potential threat to Ramsay since Rickon's status as a trueborn male Stark potentially gives Ramsay's enemies someone to rally behind, the fact that Ramsay [[spoiler:goes out of his way to kill Rickon in front of Jon in one of the [[HopeSpot cruelest ways possible]]]] demonstrates the lengths that Ramsay is willing to go to spite and enrage Jon. Ramsay sees Jon as a potential threat since Jon is one of the last surviving Starks, and views Jon as effectively undermining his control over the North as Jon refuses to give up his sister Sansa -- Ramsay's wife -- who escaped Ramsay's hold and resolves to keep her safe from Ramsay. Their feud culminates in a battle that went down in history as the Battle of the Bastards, which ended in an furious Jon giving Ramsay a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown before letting Sansa decide his fate. Although the [[GreaterScopeVillain Night King]] is ultimately Jon Snow's greatest foe, Ramsay comes a close second because of how much [[ItsPersonal he makes matters personal]] for Jon by harming Jon's family, and the fact that Ramsay's military might and [[TheDreaded fearsome reputation]] means Ramsay must be defeated before Jon can hope to unite the North against the Night King. You can tell that even though they both just met, Jon and Ramsay deeply despise each other and they both have a strong desire to kill each other.
