* BornUnlucky: Their chronic misfortunes originate from their ancestors living in the wrong side of the Wall when it was constructed eight thousand years ago.

* DidNotThinkThisThrough: As Jon points out, despite being a BadassArmy united under Mance Rayder, it's clear that the individual Wildlings are only out for themselves and lack any form of organisation or discipline to be truly effective as a fighting force. While even the ''children'' in the North grow up hearing the names, dates and locations of previous failed Wildling invasions, Wildlings like Ygritte don't appear to be aware of ''any'' of them, so they'll keep making [[HistoryRepeats the same mistakes!]] Some Wildlings also display signs of being more [[BloodKnight bloodthirsty]] than [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatic]], which is a serious problem when you're trying to pull off a stealth attack.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Tormund's band of Wildlings are fully prepared to RapePillageAndBurn their enemies, but even ''they'' are disturbed and disgusted by the Thenns fondness for [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]].
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: In principle of the Picts and perhaps the more northerly Caledonians. However, their language and naming conventions, general appearance (most of them are portrayed by Scandinavian or Slavic actors), belief that leadership is earned rather than inherited, use of elective monarchy and apparent proto-democracy, tribal make-up and emphasis on glory and death in battle brings to mind the Vikings. Their architectural style is also quite Norse or Germanic.

* GodzillaThreshold: The return of the White Walkers and an expected very long Winter fast approaching, convinces the various Wildling factions to band together under Mance Rayder and flee South as an unified force.

* HonorBeforeReason: They refuse to bow to Stannis and fight under his banner, before or after he has Mance executed, despite him giving them literally everything they wanted and ''needed'': passage through the Wall and land to settle. This is a departure from the books, where the sheer desperation of their situation means nine of ten wildlings bend the knee, and a significant portion even coverts to the faith of R'hllor, at least nominally, and their absence from his army is due to Jon pointing out how bad it would look to the Northern nobility whose favor Stannis needs.

* NotSoDifferent: Like many Northerners, they are descendants of the First Men and so share blood and cultural traits. They follow the same religion by worshiping the Old Gods of the Forest, 'look after their own' as Jon Snow notes, and remember the legends of the White Walkers. The only reason their cultures divided was due to their differing placements on either side of the Wall, a fact emphasised by wildlings and Jon Snow.
** They also have similarities with the Iron Born. Their sentiment that you can only keep what you can take and defend? Not to different from paying the Iron Price. Both people where more or less secluded descendants of the First Men, but the Iron Born lived on tree-less islands and turned to a religion based around the sea, while the Wildlings had weirwood trees and thus kept to the Old Gods of the Forest.

* MoralMyopia: The Wildlings claim the people of the Seven Kingdoms "stole" their land an invasions are attempts to get it back. Except Wildling culture dictates you only keep what you can take and defend. Since the Wildlings cannot take land south of the Wall by their own culture they have no right to it and it is not stealing.

* TheRemnant: By the end of Season 6, even more so than previous seasons. [[spoiler: Due to their choice to stand behind Jon Snow as his army in the Battle of the Bastards, they have been whittled down further by a few hundreds more. Surprisingly, their collective position was actually ''improved'' by this. Due to their service and sacrifice, they are now under the banner and protection of Jon Snow's authority as the new King in the North.]]

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted for once; Mance in the books is something of TheCasanova. His television self is by no means ugly, but does not look the part nor act it. Then again, another point about Mance in the books is that while he looks ''pleasant'' - in the sense that his face isn't covered in distinctive battle-scars or major deformities - he also has a very average, unassuming appearance. This plays up the point that he is Modest Royalty (see below).

** Mance is also disgusted when he realizes that the only reason Jon came to parley with him during the Battle of Castle Black is so that he can assassinate him - under a flag of truce, and explicitly violating the Guest Right that Mance extended to him (whether Mance knows it or not, this is exactly how Jon's brother Robb was dishonorably killed). This makes Jon pause, long enough for the issue to be rendered moot by the arrival of Stannis's army.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: His goal isn't to conquer the South; it's to get his people safe from the White Walkers. He politely explains that even though his army massively outnumbers the dwindling defenders of Castle Black, and he's about to have them surrounded from behind by a larger force he sent to climb an undefended section of the Wall, he'd rather ''not'' have to kill the remaining members of the Night's Watch. Instead he offers to spare their lives if they simply let his army pass through the Wall - which, given the circumstances, were relatively reasonable peace terms. Also this is because he is a Good Boss to his own followers: he could steamroll over Castle Black's garrison by sending in wave after wave of attackers - but he ''doesn't'' see his followers as expendable, and would prefer it if not even one more of them has to die forcing their passage south.

* AdaptationalBadass: Book Tormund never does any figthing, and none of his titles imply it. Here, Tormund is an absolute ''monster'' on the field, singly racking up more onscreen kills during the Battle of Castle Black than most of the other Wildlings combined.

* TookALevelInKindness: When Jon convinces him to ally with the Night's Watch against the White Walkers, he mellow out. By next season, he's much closer to the jovial boisterous bruiser of the books.
* UndyingLoyalty: Tormund is a man who ''demands'' steel-forged respect, but those who earn it - as Mance and Jon both have - he will fight through hell and back for them, even involving himself and his people in battles that most definitely are not his.

* YouNoTakeCandle: According to a [[http://www.dothraki.com/2015/06/new-bit-of-a-language/ lengthy post]] on his blog, the TV series's staff linguist David J. Peterson explained that this is how giants talk ''within'' the Old Tongue itself (Wun Wun is the first giant to have any speaking line, in Season 5's "Hardhome"). Peterson was worried that he'd never have the opportunity to fully develop the Old Tongue in the TV series, but then he realized that George R.R. Martin himself said that the giants don't have the intellectual capacity of the average human; Martin even said that they only speak the Old Tongue "after a fashion". With this in mind, Peterson then thought out that the giants in the TV series speak a sort of pidgin of "real" Old Tongue, with all of the linguistic rules dropped (no definite articles, no verb tenses, no noun agreement, nothing). Wun Wun literally says something like "What fuck you look him/it?" This way, Peterson got to include "Old Tongue" - of a sort - into the TV series, without having to make up a bunch of rules for it now like he did for Dothraki and Valyrian (so if he does later develop it years from now for a prequel project, he won't be beholden to work from years ago).

* SacredHospitality: His habit of giving shelter to the Night's Watch might be just so that they'll tolerate his presence and lifestyle, but his repeated and angry insistence that "I am a godly man" when called out suggests that there might be ''some'' sort of code of honour attached to it. When he's insulted in his house he attacks his guests, but they were deliberately provoking him, making it unclear who violated SacredHospitality first.

* BetaCouple: Samwell/Gilly parallel the major couple of Jon Snow and Ygritte - both Jon and Samwell took vows of celibacy when they joined the Watch, yet both ultimately fall into romantic and sexual relationships with a female wildling. The skilled warrior Jon Snow hooks up with the woman warrior/archer Ygritte...while the decidedly non-martial Samwell hooks up with the similarly non-martial Gilly. The TV show even invented a brief moment in which Gilly and Ygritte cross paths during the Sack of Mole's Town (and because Ygritte won't harm a mother and baby, she wordlessly lets Gilly flee).

* DealWithTheDevil: Not only with the White Walkers, but also with the Night's Watch mutineers who killed Craster and took his place. Although she does nothing to stop the constant rapes of the younger daughter-wives, she keeps them all alive by continuing the infant sacrifices. Both a figurative and literal DealWithTheDevil.
