Howto Write An Example Do Not Add Multiple Tropes With A Slash/Adding Multiple Tropes With A Slash Is Bad
* ModestRoyalty[=/=]WorkingClassHero: Compared to other great houses.

* BookEnds[=/=]DeathByIrony: His death mirrors the same way he decapitated a deserter from the Night's Watch; somewhat inverted in that he sticks to his own mantra of the one speaking justice doing the executing, while Joffrey uses the Royal Executioner. He's even killed with his own ancestral sword, Ice, the same one he used to kill the deserter.

* DueToTheDead[=/=]DeadGuyOnDisplay: Defied by the Freys; as soon as he's killed by Roose Bolton, they savagely hack his head off and impale Grey Wind's head on top of his chest, so they can parade it in front of his dying men on the battlefield.

* GoodIsDumb[=/=]GoodIsNotDumb: ZigZaggedTrope. Robb starts his campaign (and kingship) taking everyone by surprise tactically and showing that he can show reason as well as honour (refusing to fight [[MasterSwordsman Jaime]] 1v1 is a good example). Then he makes mistakes later on, which start adding up...

* BreakTheHaughty[=/=]BreakTheCutie: Played with in that she's uppity and callous at the beginning of the story, but her misfortunes are so harsh that she becomes a sympathetic BrokenBird instead.

* InnocentBlueEyes[=/=]IcyBlueEyes: Her abrupt shift from a naive teenager to the NumberTwo of one of the villains can be read in her eyes over the course of the fourth Season. Her expressions go from innocent and unassuming while being tricked by Dontos and the Queen of Thorns in the first few episodes to becoming harder and more precise when she suddenly becomes a manipulator.

* ModestRoyalty: He doesn't wear a crown (though neither is Stannis or Balon Greyjoy, only Renly and Joffrey among the Five Kings wears one). Even his book counterpart wears a crown in the same style of those worn by the old Kings of Winter. Additionally, when the Stark troops cheer after their first victory against the Lannisters, the first thing he does is to somberly remind his men that the war has only begun, and that their final victory is far from assured.

* GoodCounterpart: Robb is this to Joffrey. They both rise to power around the same time frame of their fathers' deaths. Robb is characterized as being a beloved leader and tactician who doesn't shy away from combat while Joffrey is TheCaligula and a DirtyCoward who would sooner let his guards do his dirty work for him. They both share the same flaws of making political enemies due to their rash behaviors (Robb's [[HonorBeforeReason Honor]] and Joffrey's Greed). [[spoiler: This ultimately causes them both their lives, dying in a similar manner at a wedding within weeks of the same time frame.]]

** He's also willing to tarnish his honourable reputation by proclaiming Joffrey as the true heir and be banished to the Knight's Watch if it will save Sansa. Unfortunately, Joffrey had him killed anyway.

* FatalFlaw: The Starks' reoccurring flaw is that [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter they often assume that others]] [[HonorBeforeReason share their morals in principals.]] This naivety often leads to the Starks being manipulated and several of their deaths.

* AdaptationalWimp: She was a somewhat better fighter in general in the books. When Yoren and his recruits are attacked by Lannisters in Clash of Kings, she actually fights and kills some of their (admittedly rather unskilled) soldiers. The only people she's killed have been either helpless (Polliver) or completely unprepared (the Frey soldier, Rorge, [[spoiler:Meryn Trant]]). She also plans and executes the escape from Harrenhal by herself in the books, without any aid from Jaqen H'ghar.

The Presidents Daughter is no longer a trope.
* ThePresidentsDaughter: In Season Three, as Bran and Rickon are presumed dead and there's a high chance of Robb contracting a fatal case of sword-through-chest on the battlefield, and her lack of uncles outside of the Night's Watch, a few factions recognize her claim to Winterfell and try to use her to get their hands on it. See UnwittingPawn below.
