* 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.

** Robb is humble and somber, while Harry is ambitious and festive, 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]].
