* IWantGrandkids: ... as long as they're [[HeirClubForMen male grandkids from his eldest son.]] Ironically, he [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor he already has two of these]] but they're less than ideal, being officially Baratheons rather than Lannisters, and rather more importantly ''bastards born of incest between his son and daughter''.

** He is ''very'' disappointed that he has no suitable heir and criticizes Jaime for remaining on the Kingsguard and Tyrion for being a deviant. He also arranges for Cersei to marry Loras and his children while she is still fertile. Not once does he ever consider remarrying, even though as a man his reproductive system has no expiry date and he could have more children. Not to mention that by the time of the series he has been widowed for ''over thirty years'' so there could have been several more adult Lannister children by now to make new alliances and maybe make up for the "disappointments" of his first three children.

** {{Subverted}} ''hard'' come the Season 6 finale, when [[spoiler: [[CryForTheDevil Cersei's remaining sympathetic qualities go out the window and she reveals herself to be even more petty, dangerous, thoughtless, cruel, ruthless, destructive, and dangerous than her book counterpart ever was with the Green Trial.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Like many of her more sympathetic adaptational qualities, [[SubvertedTrope this ultimately goes out the window as of the Season 6 finale]]. Cersei's StupidEvil machinations, while successful, ultimately make her ''the'' number one target of ''every'' single other faction in Westeros with absolutely no allies.

* RevengeBeforeReason: She tends to focus on harming her -- real or imaginary -- enemies, and think about the consequences... uh, sometime later. Maybe. A shining example is her ploy to undermine the Tyrells in Season 5, when she gets herself imprisoned as well. Then she tops herself in Season 6's finale when she [[spoiler:blows up the Sept of Baelor with all of her opponents in Kings Landing, along with a good part of the city. It's one of the very few plans she actually executes successfully, but it leaves her as ''the'' target of pretty much every remaining faction in Westeros. Of course, by that time her sanity is so long gone it's hard to even speak of "reason".]]

A shining example is her ploy to undermine the Tyrells in Season 5, when she gets herself imprisoned as well. Then 5. Not only does Cersei's claim to power rely on the Lannister-Tyrell alliance (meaning that, if the Tyrells are undermined, ''she'' is undermined), Cersei's scheme directly results in her own imprisonment, public humiliation, and complete loss of political power and control. [[KnowWhenToFoldEm Most halfway intelligent people would realize they've lost and do their best to mitigate the damage and avoid future misery]]. [[DefiedTrope Cersei is not one of these people]], and actually proceeds to she tops herself in Season 6's finale when she [[spoiler:blows up the Sept of Baelor with during the Green Trial, destroying all of her opponents in Kings Landing, along with a good part of the city.

** She has much better reasons to be wary of Margaery than in the books and despite getting Loras arrested by the Faith Militant was an underhanded move, well, at least this time she didn't frame anyone (and she has gone after him in the books as well, albeit in a different fashion).

** Come the Season 6 finale, [[spoiler: Cersei's AdaptationalHeroism is completely gone when she blows up a large majority of the nobles in King's Landing (including Margaery Tyrell and most her family) during The Green Trial, [[WordOfGod something the showrunners claim to have come up with on their own.]] For all of Book Cersei's [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen many, many, MANY faults]], not even she has come close to what is the equivalent of dropping a nuclear bomb on her own city to kill a bunch of people with no attention whatsoever paid to the massive collateral damage.]]

* PragmaticHero: A very dark version. He's perfectly willing to kill a child to protect his family, or stab the king he was meant to protect to save hundreds of thousands of lives.


Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Killed his king to save a city and his father. Crippled a boy to protect his sister. Threatened to kill a man's newborn to end a siege. What's sad is that the consequences of these acts always come back to haunt him.
