* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: It's almost a family trait for Starks to place their trust in people who REALLY should not be trusted, with Arya, Jon, and possibly Bran being the only three who managed to avoid it thus far.

* DeconReconSwitch: House Stark's fate, for most of the series, has been a by-word regarding how [[CrapsackWorld a family of honorable fantasy heroes, good politics and Westeros don't mix]]. At the beginning of the War of Five Kings, House Stark (similar to the Greyjoy-led Ironborn) had the smallest army and fewest allies. After the Red Wedding, their ranks and leadership were virtually annihilated -- the house itself functionally extinct. Their only remaining clanspeople (Sansa, Arya, Bran, Rickon and Jon) were either tossed around like bargaining chips or hunted like fugitives. And yet, [[spoiler: by Season 6, they have a) retaken their ancestral seat and destroyed their centuries-long rivals, b) regained the support of the North and re-established their independent Kingdom, and c) pieced together a standing army through assimilating the Free Folk and allying with the knights of the Vale and d) killed off the men responsible for the murder of their family and supporters. By contrast, the three-way alliance that brought them on their knees -- Boltons, Freys and Lannisters -- are respectively extinct, in a DecapitatedArmy and SuccessionCrisis situation, and currently on the verge of collapse.]]

* BadassBoast: Subverted. The Starks' motto is meant as a warning and also indicates a great concern for their subjects. However, Robb still manages to find a way to use it as a boast.
