* GiveAwayTheBride: ** In season 3, King Joffrey gives away Sansa Stark to his uncle Tyrion Lannister. Sansa is by that point a captive in King's Landing forced into an ArrangedMarriage, and because both her father is dead (at Joffrey's hands, no less) and no other Stark members are in the capital, it falls to Joffrey as "father of the realm" to carry out this duty. ** In Season 5, Theon Greyjoy gives away Sansa Stark. Subverted in that it's a sadistic game arranged by her betrothed, Ramsey Bolton. Theon was involved in the (apparent) deaths of the Starks during the War of the Five Kings, so he is the last person she wants to give her away.

* HumansAreBastards: Despite the presence of monsters like the undead and Dragons, the humans in each and every episode of the show consistently manage to be more horrible than them in regards to what they do in every episode. The constant destruction and death they resort to all in the name of power is also the chief underlying reason the world is in shambles.

* HumansAreBastards: Despite Like the presence of monsters like novels the undead and Dragons, show is based on, human characters in the humans in show practically parade this trope around. In each and every episode of the show human characters consistently manage to be more horrible than them in regards to what they do in every episode. The constant wreak suffering, misery and destruction for their own sake and death they resort to all in seize the name iron throne. This behavior is blatantly one of power is also the chief underlying reason major reasons the world is in shambles.

Catelyn would have had to vault the table and deal with Walder, who is not as feeble as his book counterpart, as well as anyone sitting next to him. Walder's timid child wife cowering alone is a much more opportune target.
** During the [[spoiler:Red Wedding, when Catelyn is pleading with Walder Frey to spare Robb's life, she decides to take Walder's [[ReplacementGoldfish ninth wife]] hostage when Lord Walder himself was just a few paces away. It doesn't sway him.]] --> '''Walder Frey:''' [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness I'll find another.]]

** In the ''History and Lore'' segments, House Tyrell is said to have risen to power in the wake of Aegon's Conquest by agreeing to surrender. They also agreed to surrender without a fight after the sack of King's Landing at the end of Robert's Rebellion.

They also agreed to surrender without a fight after the sack of King's Landing at the end of Robert's Rebellion. The King in the North Torrhen Stark did likewise to spare his army the same fate as the combined Lannister/Gardener army at the Field of Fire, which had 4000 men [[KillItWithFire burned alive by Aegon's dragons]]. Henceforth Torrhen was known as the [[KneelBeforeZod king who knelt]].

** When Tyrion disapproves of [[spoiler: the Red Wedding]], Tywin asks him why it is more noble to kill thousands in battle than a dozen at dinner. Even acknowledging the thousands of soldiers who died as well, Tyrion really cannot dispute his father, having himself [[WhatMeasureIsAMook killed thousands]] [[NotSoDifferent of defenceless, ship-bound men]] in a wildfire explosion less than a year past.

** Basically the ''modus operandi'' of House Targaryen. [[FounderOfTheKingdom Aegon I]] and his sisters used dragons to conquer six of the Seven Kingdoms, which included ''melting'' the castle of Harrenhal. Joffrey also speaks of Aerion "Brighflame" Targaryen who died from drinking wildfire and fire was Mad King Aerys' favoured execution method. His daughter Daenerys uses fire to kill [[spoiler:Mirri Maz Duur]], [[spoiler: Pyat Pree]], and [[spoiler:Kraznys mo Nakloz and many other slavers of Astapor]].

* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: After Loras unhappily offers his sister as a bride to Joffrey in "Valar Morghulis," he then stands protectively behind Margaery and stares defiantly in Joffrey's direction. The boy-king is only paying attention to Margaery at this point, so he doesn't get the message, but Loras is warning Joffrey that he had better not harm his sister.

doesn't spoil the gut punch
* GutPunch: The episodes [[spoiler: "Baelor"]], [[spoiler:"The Rains of Castamere"]], [[spoiler: "The Mountain and the Viper"]], and [[spoiler: "Mother's Mercy"]] all end with these. The second of these quickly gained a well-deserved reputation as one of the biggest gut punches in television history.
