Added DiffLines:

* EvilCounterpart: To Jon Snow. Both are high-born bastards of northern lords and resentful of their outcast status, but Ramsay is the diametric opposite of Jon in almost every other way, with Jon being one of the [[HeroicBastard most overtly heroic characters]] in the show, and Ramsay as [[BastardBastard the most depraved monster]] who managed to outclass Joffrey and the Mountain. While Jon embraces his bastardy, Ramsay tries everything to hide it and being reminded of it is his BerserkButton. Jon was loved by his father and his legitimate half-siblings, while Ramsay was only acknowledged by his father because there were no heirs, [[spoiler: and he ends up being killed (along with his wife and newborn son} by Ramsay so he could usurp their position as Lord of Winterfell.]]

* GenreBlind: [[spoiler: Despite the fact that he was DangerouslyGenreSavvy in almost every other regard, he fails to realize that repeatedly taunting his psychopathic son about his uncertain position as heir and then dropping his guard around him is a very bad idea.]]



* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: [[spoiler: Ramsay abruptly stabs him less than a minute after it is announced that Walda has given birth.]]

* MaritalRapeLicense: As shown in "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", he revels in this, forcing himself upon a clearly uncomfortable Sansa on their wedding night. As shown in "The Gift" one episode later, he doesn't stop this, keeping her as a GirlInTheTower and raping and beating her every night to the point that she has bruising all along her arms (and probably also in many places we can't see).

* ArrangedMarriage: Roose arranges for him to marry Sansa. It goes exactly as one would expect, with him raping and treating her cruelly until [[TheDogBitesBack she finally snaps and escapes with Theon's help.]]

** Subverted again with the death of Myranda. He seems to almost genuinely be sad for her death... then when his servant asks how he'd like her body to be laid to rest, he says it's good meat and that she should be fed to the dogs.

** In Season 6, his father coldly points out that "playing his games" with Sansa i.e. beating and raping her constantly, and causing her to run away, may well have cost him the support of the North. Without Sansa, the Boltons have no hold over the Northern lords. In the following episode, when Ramsay, believing that Sansa is seeking refuge with Jon Snow, suggests they wage war against Castle Black to reclaim his bride, Roose believes the Northern lords would rise up against him for murdering the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.

* {{Badass}}: During Season 4, he proves that he's Roose Bolton's [[TheDragon Dragon]] for a reason. During weapon training at Castle Black, he effortlessly beats down his sparring partner; Jon Snow even makes note of Locke's skills. During the attack on the mutineers at Craster's Keep, he kills several mutineers quite effortlessly.
