** 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.

* {{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 those of 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]].

** His being an competent bureaucrat holding the realm together for problematic sovereigns [[note]]Aerys II and Joffrey[[/note]] may also take its inspiration from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_of_Gaunt,_1st_Duke_of_Lancaster John of Gaunt]], patriarch of the [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfPlantagenet House of Lancaster]][[note]]which is almost blatantly where the name "Lannister" was derived[[/note]], who held England together during the problematic tenure of [[UsefulNotes/RichardTheSecond Richard II]][[note]]who interestingly shares the same number as Aerys the Mad[[/note]]. Tywin's personality, however, borrows more from {{Shakespeare}}'s fictionalization of his son, the elderly Theatre/HenryIV (at least in his eponymous plays): an active leader and administrator disappointed with the incompetence of their more outgoing, personable offspring (Prince Hal for Henry IV, Jaime and Tyrion for Tywin).

Though Tywin is obsessed with ensuring the main line represented by him remains at the top of the succession ladder.
