* VillainProtagonist: See SpotlightStealingSquad. House Lannister has gradually became the most prominent one in the story with [[http://www.geek.com/news/proof-that-tyrion-lannister-is-the-most-important-character-on-game-of-thrones-1597080/ Tyrion and Cersei ranking the first and the second in terms of speaking lines over the course of four seasons (and Jaime placing within the top 5)]]. And despite the existence of it's more sympathetic members, like Tyrion, Tywin and Jaime, it still serves as the BigBad of the families of Westeros, with even those characters technically supporting the villainous side. Until Tyrion's exile, anyway.

Until Tyrion's exile, anyway.



Twin brother of Cersei, and older brother of Tyrion. A member of the Kingsguard, and known across the lands as one of the finest swordsmen who ever lived, Jamie served under the "Mad King" Aerys II Targaryen for many years. Jamie quickly became infamous amongst the Seven Kingdoms however for murdering the Mad King near the end of Robert's Rebellion an action that led to him becoming known as TheKingslayer. While Jamie initially seems arrogant and aloof about his infamous action the truth is that, unbeknownst to the rest of the world, Jamie was saving the rest of King's Landing from the Mad King who intended to destroy the city with hidden cashes of Wildfire. After loosing his sword hand Jamie became humbled and is now trying to live his life for his own sense of honour even if the rest of the world continues to despise him. After the forced retirement of Ser Barristan from the Kingsguard Jamie is named the Lord Commander of the brotherhood. He later becomes the commander-in-chief of the Lannister armies once Cersei becomes the Queen Regent of the Seven Kingdoms. Unfortunately for Jamie, once Cersei becomes Queen, he is left torn in his loyalties between the sister that he loves and his own sense of right and wrong.

** [[spoiler: Exaggerated in Season 7, with Cersei's buying the use of the Golden Company. There's a ''slim'' chance they'd be effective against Danaerys if she wins the War of Dawn and loses both her remaining dragons and the majority of her forces... yet she seems to think they'll work just fine as a defense against the Night King, letting ''buy her own way out of humanity's extinction''.]]

* SpannerInTheWorks: When Tyrion is captured, he leads a punitive action against the Starks that ends with Ned incapacitated and unable to meet The Mountain in the Riverlands, which would have likely led to Ned captured or killed by a third-party, the outcome favored by Tywin Lannister. Instead, Ned stays in the capital and the political development leads to a strong casus belli and the insurrection of the North after Ned is executed.

** In terms of his own family, Cersei assumes he doesn't let her 'contribute' because she's a woman, but he (quite correctly) states that she isn't as smart as she thinks she is. He names TheUnfavorite Tyrion as Hand of the King in his stead after Joffrey kills Ned Stark because he wants Tyrion to do damage control, something he rightly assumes Cersei isn't capable of doing. However, despite Tywin's opinion of her intelligence, it becomes clear that he sees Cersei as a brood mare to be married off to make connections and babies precisely because she's a woman. As for Tyrion, though he's willing to put Tyrion to work and doesn't deny his skills, he still hates Tyrion because he's a dwarf and thus 'not a presentable Lannister', refusing to name Tyrion as his heir so long as Jaime, the Golden Boy of the family, may potentially take up that role. Though Jaime's vows to the Kingsguard disqualify him from serving that role, Tywin is convinced he can talk/bribe/extort Jaime into quitting somehow, coming awfully close in Season 4.

* SpannerInTheWorks: To Tywin and Jaime in "The Laws of Gods and Men" when she calls Shae to the stand at Tyrion's trial. Tywin and Jaime had originally planned on sending Tyrion to the Wall, but Cersei have Shae falsely testify prompts an enraged Tyrion to demand a TrialByCombat.

** In the book when Bran is spotted watching Jaime and Cersei having sex he falls from the window and is saved by Jaime, and when Jaime shoves him he says "the things I do for love" with loathing, indicating that he is still decent enough not only to save a child's life but to hate himself for killing him. In the show the moment where he rescues Bran is cut and he says his line with glibness rather than loathing, painting Jaime to be a truly callous person.

** This is Jaime's reaction to Tyrion's murder of Tywin, even telling Bronn he will kill Tyrion if he ever sees him again. [[spoiler: When the two reunite in Season 6, he doesn't do it.]]

** By Season 7 however its implied that the Lannister line is coming to an end due to the massive amounts of casualties they've suffered over the years, as Cersei describes herself and Jamie as: "the last Lannister's left. The last ones that matter" (not including Tyrion).

** At the end of Season 6, House Lannister becomes the current ruling house of Westeros after Cersei blows up the Great Sept of Baelor using wildfire with all of her political rivals inside it. While this action places her on the Iron Throne, it turns what is left of the country against her. The Reach and Dorne have joined forces with Daenerys and her invading armies. The North and Vale have declared independence under the new King in the North, Jon Snow. With the elimination of House Frey, the Riverlands can't be counted on for support. Even the Westerlands are suspicious since one of the people she killed was her uncle Kevan, the ruler of the Westerlands. Come season 7, even Jaime acknowledges that Daenerys will likely win the coming war, and Jon treats her attempt to cow him into submission as transparent posturing by someone without the means to back it up.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: In Season 4. With the Starks essentially wiped out, Tyrion, Cersei, and Jaime receive the largest amount of screen time. "The Laws of Gods and Men", the sixth episode of Season 4, marks the first episode in the show's history that none of the Starks, not even Jon Snow, have appeared. While prior to this season, they were the BigBad, but they've increasingly received POV scenes. This can even be seen in the title sequence. In the first three seasons, the top billings were generally mixed between the Starks, Lannisters and Daenerys. In Season 4, the top three billings are all Lannisters (Tyrion, Jaime, and Cersei).

** The Lannisters came out on top in the War of Five Kings and they rule Westeros, but they are weaker than ever in the aftermath and have to rely heavily on the Tyrells. The king whose rule they fought to cement has been assassinated and the next king is just an untrained boy. The Crown is millions in debt to the Iron Bank of Braavos, casting serious doubt on the Lannisters' reputation for repayment. The Riverlands are in ruins and the North is ''not'' pacified. Stannis is back in the fight thanks to a loan from the Iron Bank -- another result of the Lannisters' mounting debts. Other forces are working to undermine the Lannisters; Littlefinger controls the Vale, the Reach is maneuvering to control the new king, and the Martells hate the Lannisters more then ever after the demise of Oberyn. Their armies are decimated from all the fighting, the gold mines have run dry for ''years'', and most of their money was spent in the war. Making things worse, Tywin, their very capable leader, is killed by Tyrion, who flees to Essos, while Cersei and Jaime are prone to infighting.

** His statement about how the House that places the family's needs first over it's members is hypocritical, self-serving, and in the context of encouraging Tyrion to engage in MaritalRapeLicense, absolutely repugnant, but in the long run, he's shown to be right. [[spoiler: The Baratheons and the Boltons are both extinct precisely because their individual members would not get along, and ultimately ended up killing one another. House Lannister themselves are in dire straits by Season 7 due to Tyrion aiding Daenaerys in overthrowing his hated sister, all as a result of the family's internal frictions and feuds. Meanwhile, the Starks are BackFromTheBrink precisely because it's members love one another unconditionally, and are willing to put their House and family before their own ambitions and desires, with Sansa willing to sidestep her own claim on the North to support her half-brother Jon being a good example.]]

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: In the seventh season [[spoiler: when Daenerys requests a brief alliance in order to face off against the larger threat, the White Walkers, all Cersei can consider is how to best use this to her advantage. Even when given proof of their existence, Cersei chooses to ignore the impending threat because she'd rather Daenerys deplete her own forces. Even prior to this, when Jaime, who barely survived her overwhelming forces, pleaded with Cersei to consider surrendering, Cersei balked at the idea because she doesn't believe Daenerys would spare her because Cersei wouldn't if the roles were reversed.]]

** She on season 4 accuses Tywin that once she is gone that he and Margaery would dig their claws into Tommen and fight over him until he would be ripped apart. Comes season 5, after Tywin's death, she constantly struggles with Margaery to manipulate Tommen, until he ends up killing himself after realizing that his mother's schemes ruined his chances of becoming a good king.

** In "The Children", she tells Tywin that she's be willing to burn House Lannister to the ground so long as she remains Queen and gets to have her children. In the season 6 finale, we see this wasn't an idle threat when she literally burns down a good chunk of the city's skyline to take out the Faith Militant, Margaery, and everyone else that opposes her to make sure she stays in power.

** However, ultimately she cares more about herself and her power than any of her offspring. [[spoiler: In season 7 she becomes pregnant once again. Jon and Daenerys make it clear what kind of threat the White Walkers present and Cersei still decides to stab them in the back, rather than sending troops to help win the war. All this even after Jaime tells her that their child will not even be born if the White Walkers win.]]
* ManipulativeBitch: She's able to manipulate the likes of Ned, Jaime, Lancel, Sansa and a few others...but sharper characters like Tywin, Tyrion, Varys and such aren't fooled by her machinations.

* NeverMyFault: Rare is the moment where Cersei ever considers her own fault in any situation, and even then it's fleeting. A shining example is the premiere of season 7 when she declares that everyone currently rebelling against her rule is a traitor. She doesn't seem to understand that the major reason they're all rebelling against her is because she's a terrible queen who murdered hundreds of people, including members of her own family, to take power. Later in the season she declares that the fall of House Lannister, including the deaths of Myrcella and Tommen, are Tyrion's fault for killing Tywin because no one would have dared harm the family while Tywin lived. She seems to either not remember or not care that Tommen committed suicide as a direct consequence of something Cersei did.

* SmartBall: She gets a lot more cunning in season 7, managing to turn around a war in which she was hopelessly outmatched to one that she has a very slim chance of actually winning. Some of this can be attributed to Jaime, but not all of it. It doesn't completely erase her shortsighted behavior and her ItsAllAboutMe attitude gets exponentially worse, but it's a step up nonetheless.

* TookALevelInBadass: While Cersei's faults and weaknesses are many by the end of season 7 its clear that she has gotten much better at managing them. Following her walk of shame Cersei has shown much more patience, cunning, and ability to plan ahead then she ever did before. She manages to wipe out all her enemies in the capital in one move and makes herself Queen. [[spoiler:When faced with Daenery's invasion she manages to gain new allies in House Greyjoy and House Tarly while at the same time eliminating all of Daenerys Westeros based allies. She uses gold stolen from Highgarden to pay off the Iron Bank and get a new loan. When offered a truce by her enemies so they can face the Army of the Dead and the White Walkers she makes a big production of agreeing and pledging to fight with our heroes but only after very difficult negotiations. This ends up being a ruse and her real plan is to let her enemies kill each other fighting in the North while she uses her new loan to hire a mercenary army 20,000 strong to regain control of the south and wipe out whoever is left after the fighting in the North is done.]] Despite being surrounded by smarter players in the game Cersei has managed to take advantage of her opportunities to kill almost all of her enemies and take the Iron Throne and become the most dangerous of the shows human villains.

* {{Narcissist}}: While a brilliant statesman and a highly skilled military strategist, he is also [[{{Pride}} extremely vain]], [[LackofEmpathy cruel]], and [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]]. In addition to having nothing but contempt for those less talented or of lower birth than himself, Tywin harbors no compassion or loyalty to ''anyone'' outside his family. By his own admission, he views anyone who is not a Lannister as either enemies or pawns to be exploited. Despite professing to do everything for his family's benefit, he regularly rides roughshod over its individual members' welfare to advance his own interests (which he selfishly equates with his entire household). Even when his own children protest his tyrannical grip over their lives, he coldly dismisses them or ruthlessly browbeats them into submission . Furthermore, he is pathologically obsessed with projecting an image of invincibility and infallibility as evidenced by his deep-rooted inclination to [[LeaveNoSurvivors wipe out all who challenge his authority with extreme prejudice]] and his grandiose plan to [[TakeOverTheWorld establish a dynasty that will rule Westoros for a thousand years]].

Despite professing to do everything for his family's benefit, he regularly rides roughshod over its individual members' welfare to advance his own interests (which he selfishly equates with his entire household). Even when his own children protest his tyrannical grip over their lives, he coldly dismisses them or ruthlessly browbeats them into submission . Furthermore, he is pathologically obsessed with projecting an image of invincibility and infallibility as evidenced by his deep-rooted inclination to [[LeaveNoSurvivors wipe out all who challenge his authority with extreme prejudice]] and his grandiose plan to [[TakeOverTheWorld establish a dynasty that will rule Westoros for a thousand years]].

** The HBO show's version of Lannister armor combines features from TheRenaissance, UsefulNotes/FeudalJapan, the Teutonic Knights, and the German men-at-arms of the Russian film ''Film/AlexanderNevsky'', which in turn were a [[PuttingOnTheReich reference]] to UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, as is Tywin's [[ThousandYearReign dream about a thousand-year dynasty]]. The Medieval Japanese style to their armor was to make them look distinct, and is ''loosely'' implied to be a holdover from when they were close allies of the Targaryens -- who, being from the eastern continent, also dress in very "foreign" looking Asian styles.
