* EverybodysDeadDave: With the sole exception of Edmure, [[spoiler:who remains a captive 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.
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: House Tully has quite a bit of similarities with the [[TheSoundOfMartialMusic Habsburg dynasty]], given their penchant for forging alliances and marrying off members of their family to secure even greater power. Basically the Riverlands in general which they rule over are the Belgium of Westeros. Like the Low Countries in Medieval Europe, they're the borderlands between all of the major powers (England, France, Germany), so they're on the front line of almost ''every'' major war. Only the fact that they're one of the more fertile breadbasket regions of Westeros (along with the Reach) allows them to recover in the generations between major wars.
* GuiltByAssociation / RevengeByProxy: Invaded by the Lannisters in response to Catelyn arresting Tyrion, despite the fact that Catelyn has not been in the Riverlands for years and her husband, Ned Stark, claimed responsibility for it.

Added DiffLines:

* BlessedWithSuck: In the Blu-ray lore, Blackfish considers Aegon the Conqueror making the Tullys the ruling house of the Riverlands as this since they've had to arbitrate and negotiate among the quarrelsome river lords ever since.

* BigFancyCastle: Riverrun is huge. Littlefinger mentions in the History and Lore videos that he was mesmerized when he first saw it.



* AdaptationalHeroism: Since he's more or less TheGhost, his coarser edges are AdaptedOut. Especially his history with his daughter Lysa Tully. In the books, when Lysa had a child with Petyr Baelish after a OneNightStand of QuestionableConsent, he tricked her into drinking a potion that caused an abortion. This is implied to have hurt her fertility and been a cause for Robin Arryn's health problems. At his deathbed, Hoster Tully expresses regret for this and sends several ravens to Lysa to come and see him but she refuses.

* DistressedDude: He's been imprisoned by the Freys since late Season 3. [[spoiler: He's finally freed in Season 6.]]

-->'''Catelyn Stark:''' 'Family, Duty, Honor.' Every Tully child learns our words. But I was a woman before I understood them.

-->''If Westeros isn't careful, pretty soon our people will grow some sense and abandon it for a safer place, like the Dothraki Sea. I joke, of course. The Riverlands are our home and gods help us, we love it. Still as they say "the king eats and the hand takes the shit". The same is true of the Riverlands: the Seven Kingdoms piss and the Riverlands change clothes.''

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Even after everything that happened to them, their people still love them. When Arya and Sandor meet a farmer in the Riverlands, the farmer offers them a hot meal and a place to sleep purely because Arya passes the Hound off as an ex-Tully soldier.
