* ButtMonkey: ''Nothing'' goes well for them during the course of the war. Of all the regions in Westeros, theirs is the one that's hit most hard by the War of the Five Kings, and Edmure's greatest accomplishment ends up hindering his campaign's war efforts. [[spoiler:Their marriage alliance with House Frey even ends up killing their king, their queen, and Lady Catelyn.]]
* ConflictingLoyalty: The family, duty, honor motto ends up causing this [[spoiler: during the siege of Riverrun, Edmure has to choose about upholding his duty as a family man or as a lord and choose the former.]]
* EverybodysDeadDave: With the sole exception of Edmure and his infant son, [[spoiler:who remain captives of the Freys, even after Walder Frey's death]], House Tully is virtually extinct. While some form of Tully blood lives on in Sansa, Bran, Arya, and Robin, they are considered Starks and Arryns more than Tullys, officially.

* BreakTheHaughty: Takes himself just a little too seriously, sometimes (okay, most of the time). Unfortunately for him, the Blackfish is always on hand to tell him to shut his mouth or threaten him with bodily harm (usually both). [[spoiler: From the looks of it in Season 6, his time as a prisoner of the Freys has ''not'' done wonders for his health.]]
** [[spoiler: It gets even worse when Jaime has to use Edmure to take Riverrun back from the Blackfish. How does he do this? By threatening the life of his wife and child. It's pretty clear that this threat is what completely breaks Edmure and convinces him to reluctantly turn on his uncle.]]
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:After being kept prisoner by Walder Frey since "The Rains of Castamere", he finally reappears in Season 6's "Blood of my Blood".]]

* TookALevelInBadass: It seems that years of imprisonment have hardened Edmure by the time he returns in Season 6. He's brave enough to keep his composure when the Freys threaten to hang him and then slit his throat. When Jaime confronts him he even is able to fire back with some pretty good insults, [[spoiler: though unfortunately it doesn't take long for him to be broken again.]]

* HonorBeforeReason: He refuses to yield Riverrun even though the inevitable outcome of that refusal is the deaths of himself and all of his men. [[spoiler:When Edmure uses his authority as Lord of Riverrun to order the Tully garrison to surrender, the Blackfish decides to make a last stand against the Lannisters by himself, even though he could easily escape with Brienne and Pod. This naturally leads to his death.]]

* KilledOffscreen: [[spoiler: We last see him running off to fight Frey soldiers, and his death is later reported to Jaime.]]

* SomeoneToRememberHimBy: Had sex with Edmure ''exactly once'' on their wedding night, a few hours before the Red Wedding massacre began and Edmure was taken prisoner (as a valuable political hostage they wanted him alive), nonetheless this was sufficient to get Roslin pregnant and at some point between Season 3 and Season 6 she gave birth to Edmure's son and heir. Jaime's bluff that he is willing to kill both Roslin and her baby helps convince Edmure to surrender Riverrun bloodlessly.
** In the books, Roslin indeed got pregnant on their wedding night, but the TV show surpassed the novels by Season 6; as of the most recent fifth novel she hasn't given birth yet, so the name of their son is unknown.
