* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: In the time since the War of the Five Kings, House Frey's rule has deteriorated considerably. Near everyone in the Riverlands despises them for their role in the Red Wedding in addition to their disastrous lordship over the Riverlands which has yet to recover from being ravaged by the war, and they are treated as an afterthought at best in King's Landing. By Season 6, Brynden the Blackfish has retaken Riverrun for the Tullys, the other Riverland house are rallying to his banner, and the smallfolk are being coaxed into rebellion by the Brotherhood Without Banners, forcing Walder to plead with the already depleted Lannisters for support in quelling the uprising.

** MoralMyopia: Robb Stark did break his promise of a marriage-alliance to the Freys, and part of that is on Robb. On the other hand, it was ''Walder Frey'' who broke his word in the first place, by extorting a marriage-alliance out of the Starks and Tullys, even when other Riverlands Houses such as the Mallisters and Blackwoods joined the war against the Lannisters simply because their Tully overlords ''asked'' them to. Walder at least points out in his defense that he's also sworn oaths to the Iron Throne, above the Tullys, and he can't keep both.
** SelectiveObliviousness: Oh gods. Walder is ''deeply'' annoyed that everyone calls him a DirtyCoward, specifically resenting how Hoster Tully nicknamed him "the late Walder Frey" for only showing up to the Battle of the Trident after the battle ended. Lord Walder knows damn well that he ''intentionally'' arrived late, but still hypocritically thinks that ''he'' is the injured party for being on the receiving end of Hoster's ''entirely accurate'' criticism. Walder Frey thinks that Starks and Tullys ''deserved'' what he did to them, as some sort of righteous payback. Contrast with Roose Bolton, who at least fully accepts that what he did was a betrayal, but sees it as an example of IDidWhatIHadtoDo, because Robb was losing the war and the Boltons would have been wiped out by the Lannisters alongside them if they had stayed loyal.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Everything he does is just to further his own family, but even then he seems more interesting in getting them married off for the sake of marrying them off than he does their actual happiness or willingness. He only honors his deals when it suits him, makes outrageous demands of the other parties in those dealings, and demands more respect than he deserves for either his standing or character.

* ObviouslyEvil: Rarely does one meet a gaunt-faced old man with a hooked nose, a grumpy expression and such a raspy voice that is up to anything good. [[MeanCharacterNiceActor Well, on screen at least...]]
