* AllThereInTheManual: Her name.
* CanonForeigner: She doesn't make any appearances in the books.
* {{Cult}}: She keeps up the Craster cult after Craster's death. When the last son of the incestuous family is born, she delivers him to Craster's killers and tells them to sacrifice the baby.
* 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. According to an interview with the screenwriter Bryan Cogman, the scenes in Craster's Keep were "situations beyond the Wall that didn't involve the supernatural, but rather humanity at its worst."
* EvilMatriarch: She appears to be the oldest of Craster's wife-daughters, and may very well be the first. She's also keeping up the Craster cult, although it may be out of habit or necessity as opposed to actual malice. She's likely never known anything other than the life Craster forced her to live.

* {{Foil}}: To Ser Alliser Thorne. Throne also serves as the second in command in his army and is the best fighter among his men but is a {{Jerkass}} and is widely disliked by his men while also making very questionable ([[TheBully to say the least]]) leadership decisions. But while [[AntiHero heavily flawed]] when it comes down to it [[GoodIsNotNice he's still trying to protect the South and its inhabitants]] from the Wildlings. Tormund, on the other hand, is a very effective leader, [[AffablyEvil is generally friendly and well-liked]], [[PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes and has zero issue slaughtering innocents and peasants]]. The fact they act as foils to one another becomes most obvious when they personally fight each other during the Battle of Castle Black.

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: Used to be the case before Mance Rayder unified all the tribes, and even under his leadership, they are a very loose coalition on the brink of infighting. It is said that there are about 90 different clans in the current generation, and the costume department stated that they designed six broad sub-categories for the TV version based on how they dress. These appear to be:
**1 - The main wildlings from the Haunted Forest, who are the majority of their population (Mance, Tormund, Ygritte, etc.)
**2 - The Thenns - fierce warriors who have their own copper axes and basic copper disc armor, and are cannibals (a combination of the book-Thenns and book-Ice River Clans).
**3 - The Frozen Shore clans (Karsi's group, they wear a lot of seashells on their coats)
**4 - The Hornfoots (the Lord of Bones' group; mountain tribes who decorate themselves with animal bones because they don't have seashells).
**5 - The Cave People (use face paint as described in the novels; briefly visible in council scenes)
**6 - The Giants (they just wrap themselves in odds and ends like a mummy).
