* {{Foil}}: Harry is this to Robb Stark, both are [[TheAce Aces]] that cause comlexes to their bastard brothers, both are the heirs to their fathers, even if Harry doesn't know it, both have been noted to be pretty, and currently both are set to be the Wardens of the West and North respectively, however while Robb has often been noted for his inexperience and never quite gets over his reputation as a ''boy'', Harry is often noted for his potential, despite being falsely believed to be the second son there is a very real possibility of him getting the crown instead of Joffrey, is often stated to be wiser than he should be at his age, and people often consider him a ''man'', if not in years then in mind, while Robb has a great relationship with his family and idolizes his father, Harry has a mixed relation with his own family, loves Cersei, Myrcella and Tommen, gets along well with Jaime, Renly and Tyrion, but doesn't like Stannis, Joffrey or Tywin, even if he does respect the last one, and while he used to idolize his own father, Harry quickly grew disillusioned because of what Robert did in the war, Robb is humble and somber, while Harry is ambitious and festive, finally both were bethroded to a woman from another family of high-status (Roslin Frey for Robb and Margeary Tyrell for Harry) but had a special relationship with another woman (Aeryn for Harry, Jeyne Westerling/Talisa Maegyr for Robb) but while Robb ultimately decides to follow his heart, and it costs him everything including his life, Harry knows his duty and sticks with Margeary, and not only do they seem well on the way to love each other, but this ultimately will mean that, when the series starts, with his position, birth and marriage, Harry would have the Reach, the Stormlands, and posibly the Westerlands when the War of the Five Kings begins, meaning he will have the strongest position.

**
Robb is humble and somber, while Harry is ambitious and festive, finally both are simlarily men of principles, but Harry becomes more pragmatic because he is taught by [[FourStarBadass Tywin Lannister]], and while both have their bouts of anger, in Harry's case it's much more visible, to the point that he killed men long before Robb, and it is an even bigger problem for him, to the point that he is the [[RedOniBlueOni red to any of his partner's blue]].
** Finally
both were bethroded engaged to a woman from another of a family of high-status (Roslin Frey for Robb and Margeary Tyrell for Harry) but had a special relationship with another woman (Aeryn for Harry, Jeyne Westerling/Talisa Maegyr for Robb) but while Robb ultimately decides to follow his heart, and it costs him everything including his life, Harry knows his duty and sticks with Margeary, and not only do they seem well on the way to love each other, but this ultimately will mean that, when the series starts, with his position, birth and marriage, Harry would have the Reach, the Stormlands, and posibly the Westerlands when the War of the Five Kings begins, meaning he will have the strongest position.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodCounterpart: [[TheAce Harry]] is set up to become this to [[BadassGrandpa Tywin]], many characters note the resemblance, among them Kevan, Tywin's most loyal supporter and brother, Harry is ruthlessly efficient and has little care for those who would come between him and his plans, or attempt something on his family, much like his grandfather, notably Harry is just as protective of Myrcella as Tywin was with Genna back when they were younger, perhaps the most notable however is their ability to make the most out of a bad situation, Tywin was left in a horrible situation because of his father that was too good and pasive for [[CrapsackWorld Westerosi society]], but managed to remake the Lannister name, whereas Harry is in a bad situation because Joffrey is too evil, stupid and cruel even for [[EvenEvilHasStandards Westerosi society]], but he fully embraces becoming the Heir of Casterly Rock, even if it might hurt his uncle Tyrion's feelings, to control Joffrey and keep him under his thumb.
