** He isn't ''quite'' as nasty to Theon in the books: Balon still insults him and plans to disinherit him in favor of his daughter, but he actually compliments Theon's guts for standing up to him, saying "Well, at the least you are no craven", and Theon's mission to the Stony Shore is actually strategically valuable, giving him far more ships and soldiers and is treated as less of an [[YouGetMeCoffee embarrassingly unimportant task to get him out of the way]], he doesn't completely ignore Theon's return to Pyke and sends his uncle Aeron to greet him, and his refusal to negotiate and save Theon from Ramsay is entirely original to the show - Book!Balon never even finds out if Theon survived the Bolton attack on Winterfell.

* CripplingOverspecialization: As long as they are at sea, they're formidable. On terrain combat, their individual competence varies, but they're largely ineffective.

* 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. In the books he 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.
