* KickTheDog: He has behaved abusively toward Ros and Osha and other characters don't seem to trust or like him. In Season 2, his capture of Winterfell and subsequent actions are basically one long exercise in this trope. Notably his killing of Ser Rodrik.

** Having said that, when Euron attacks the defecting Greyjoy ships, he shows that he is a decent swordsman and brave enough in battle.

* 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, though it's still entirely possible she's bisexual, as [[WordOfSaintPaul Gemma herself]] suspects.

"Stormborn" more or less confirms the [[BiTheWay bisexual] angle.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Aeron's meant to be several years younger than Balon, but the fully white hair and much more weathered appearance of Aeron, particularly in Season 6, don't make this readily apparent (although Michael Feast ''is'' a year younger than Patrick Malahide).

Although this may be RealityIsUnrealistic as actor-wise the ages more or less sync up (seeing how Michael Feast ''is'' a year is nearly two years younger than Patrick Malahide).

* {{Hypocrite}}: Balon is quick to point out the flaws of others and is especially critical of Theon for not paying the 'iron price' and being raised by the Starks... when Balon himself is the man who gave Theon away after being utterly destroyed when he got too big for his watery boots. He also resents his losses and shames before Westeros, when by all rights his own belief in the Iron Price means everything was taken from him fairly and through no one's fault but his own for not being stronger.

* AbledInTheAdaptation: In the books, Ramsay actually chopped-off Theon's toes and fingers and even plucked most of his teeth, plus his castration is only implied. Here, Theon only got castrated, though he suffers from a limp for a while because of Ramsey's tortures.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Of the "died later than in the source material" type. He died in the third book, which was around Seasons 3 and 4 in the show. He's still alive as of Season 6 and brags about being the last surviving original King of the War of the Five King, whereas in the books, Stannis is the last of the five standing. Then in the second episode he is murdered.
* StupidEvil: Evident from his very first appearance. Balon always does the stupidest, most evil thing he can think of. He could have joined the Starks (as Theon advises) ''or'' (probably, since they were still nominally loyal to the Iron Throne before attacking the North) the Lannisters and achieve his objectives of independence for the Iron Isles -- but his insistence on acting independently means his uprising is doomed to failure once the War of Five Kings is resolved. Then again, given his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, few people would be prepared to deal with him anyway.

* BigBad: Of the Greyjoy storyline in the final two seasons, joining the ranks of Cersei, Littlefinger, and the Night's King. [[spoiler: By the end of season 7, Euron, Cersei and the Night's King are the only main antagonists left.]]

* AdaptationalUgliness: In line with the rest of the Greyjoys. Her book counterpart is described as being very striking, if boyish, while Yara - while not unattractive, especially during her softer and friendlier moments - is plainer, with harder features.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: "Evil" is a stretch when it comes to describing Yara, but she's still ruthless - and still has standards.

** Though in Season 6 he is badass enough to try and lead the Bolton soldiers away from Sansa and later stab one in the back whilst Brienne and Pod were temporarily incapacitated. In Season 7 he fights and kill a few of Euron's raider before [[spoiler: he absorbs the horror of the scene and starts reliving his trauma.]]

* NoSell: His castration means that a GroinAttack is now useless against him in a fight, as we discover at the end of season 7 when [[TheStarscream one of his men]] tries it on him repeatedly. Theon just smiles and proceeds to win the fight.
