* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Late season 2, Luwin attempts to reason with a desperate Theon that he is in over his head. Theon himself [[HeelRealisation admits as much]] but then states that [[DidntThinkThisThrough he's in too deep]]. He can't return home because he'd be returning a failure. Robb, the one person who actually respected Theon, would kill him on the spot. He's too scared to join the Night Watch and face Jon Snow after everything he's done.

Finally gets somewhat of a chance of redemption when he is welcomed back by his sister and the two align with Daenerys in Essos.

* CharacterTics: As a result of his indoctrination, Reek has great difficulty making eye contact; also, perhaps as a physical side-effect of all the torture, he's also prone to twitching during times of stress.

* CharacterTics: As a result of his indoctrination, Reek has great difficulty making eye contact; also, perhaps as a physical side-effect of all the torture, he's also prone to twitching during times of stress. Unfortunately, this still remains to some extent after he rediscovers himself as Theon Greyjoy.

* BirdsOfAFeather: With Daenerys, as strong-willed women looking to make their mark in a patriarchal society. The admiration between the two when they first meet is instant and obvious - [[LesYay and perhaps not entirely platonic, either...]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: He's still a very unpleasant person in the books as well, but he never [[spoiler:ordered the execution of his niece and nephew]] there. He's also implied in the books to have sent a Faceless Man to [[spoiler:kill Balon]], while in the show he did it himself and openly admits to it, even when it's one of the worst crimes in Westerosi society.

* AdaptationalWimp: He doesn't do magic. In the book one of the reasons he wins the Kingsmoot is because he had one of his crewman blow a magic horn that can apparently control dragon and attendees can feel its power.

** Her plan in the Kingsmoot is to revive and rebuild the Iron Fleet to never before seen heights implying designs of conquest on a large scale. In the books, she made it clear that she has different intentions, she wants to seek allies with the mainland, abandon superficial conquest and parlay peace with the North in exchange for some land to settle, and convert the Ironborn from reaving to trade.

That being said, the fact that Yara eventually agrees to give up piracy and rein her people in under Dany's rule displays that, while more of a traditionalist than her book counterpart, she's still open-minded enough to commit to change.

* AdaptationalSexuality: Although she is quite kinky in the books, she has not been depicted sleeping or having relationships with women. She has thus far ''only'' been depicted having sex with a woman in the show. That said, it's still possible that both versions of the character are cases of BiTheWay ([[WordOfSaintPaul the actress herself]] thinks the show character is bisexual, at least), but it hasn't been officially confirmed yet in either case.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Among other things, he convinced the Ironborn to back him as king by promising to make a deal with Daenerys so they could conquer the Seven Kingdoms. Theon and Yara, who he ousted to do this, promptly sail there first and make that deal, warning Daenerys of his intentions.

* OnlySaneMan: Compared to the other ironborn leaders including her own father, she's seemingly the only one with a basic grasp of large-scale political and military strategy. Balon's "plan" was to opportunistically attack the North purely because they were an easy victory while their army was away - then keep fighting to hold the towns and castles they'd captured long after that war in the south ended. TV-Yara even gives a variation on book-Asha's famous "pinecones and rocks" speech, pointing out that attacking ''the North'' of all places has brought them absolutely nothing - as opposed to say, trying to capture the mines of the Westerlands or the farms of the Reach (after all, winter is coming). She outright berates her father for trying to fight mainland armies when their strength is ''at sea''. Only Theon also brought up these concerns - that the North was their natural ally and they should have teamed up against the Lannisters - but he caved because he wanted to impress his father.
