* MedievalStasis: Westerosi technology has not improved significantly over at least the last thousand years. In fact, ancient marvels of engineering such as the Wall are implied to be built on LostTechnology, and no one has been able to figure out how to make more Valyrian steel (though experts can rework it).

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: The books were written to avert this trope hard with its large cast and HyperlinkStory. While still an ensemble, the show has generally been reluctant to readily introduce new characters past Season 3, and instead combines and composites characters and situations so that the regular cast is involved.
