** Baelor's kindness to the Dornish would be posthumously rewarded twenty years later when King Daeron II worked with his brother-in-law, Prince Maron Martell, to formally unite Dorne with the Seven Kingdoms, the capstone to which was to lay a golden wreath before Baelor's statue and declare:
-->''"Baelor, your work is done."''

* Another CMOH during Aegon's conquest is the story of the foundation of House Baratheon. King Argilac Durrendon of the Stormlands declared war to Aegon after he refused the hand of his daughter Argella in marriage and offered instead his HeroicBastard half-brother Orys instead (mind that he was suggesting the [[NumberTwo closest guy to Aegon himself]]). Argilac ended up killed by Orys himself in duel and [[BadassPrincess Argella]] decided to [[DefiantToTheEnd not surrender to Orys]] anyway but was betrayed and eventually handed over to Orys by her own people [[NakedFirstImpression tied up and naked]]. Orys [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty instead of raping her and taking her as a concubine]], [[KnightInShiningArmor covered her up with his own cloak]], offered her [[SacredHospitality food and drink, and treated her respectfully]]. They eventually fell in love, got married and founded House Baratheon.

** Following on from this, the fact that in spite of the fact that his family have cut ties with Sansa (due to her being a potential problem with their plans to [[spoiler: supplant the Lannisters as the power behind the throne]], now that she's married to Tyrion, Garlan still goes up to Sansa during her melancholy wedding feast and asks her to dance. Sansa had always imagined dancing with her husband at their wedding feast (something she both cannot and will not do with Tyrion), and this small gesture lets her have even a small portion of her dream back, if only for a moment. Well-named was Ser Garlan the Gallant.

-->'''Sansa''': She remembered a summer’s snow in Winterfell when Arya and Bran had ambushed her as she had emerged from the keep one morning. They’d each had a dozen snowballs to hand, and she’d had none. Bran had been perched on the roof of the covered bridge, out of reach, but Sansa had chased Arya through the stables and around the kitchen until both of them were breathless. She might even have caught her, but she’d slipped on some ice. Her sister came back to see if she was hurt. When she said she wasn’t, Arya hit her in the face with another snowball, but Sansa grabbed her leg and pulled her down and was rubbing snow in her hair when Jory came along and pulled them apart, laughing.

* The fact the Maester at Dragonstone is one of few people who truly love Stannis for what he is and died in his futile attempt to kill Melissandre is both CMOH and a factor that make his death more tragic.

* After Sansa is ordered to strip her clothes in court by Joffery, Tyrion arrives on the scene, orders someone to cover her, and puts her up in the Hand's quarters, in Arya's old bedchamber. Tyrion orders his own people to guard Sansa from Joffery, and even offers to assign a female guard if that would make Sansa feel more comfortable.

* Another Robert's Rebellion example. The ''cassus belli'' is definitely kidnapping of Lyanna Stark. Stark (Ned, Brandon and Rickard) raise arms to rescue their sister/daughter, Robert Baratheon did the same to rescue his beloved and Jon Arryn to protect Robert and Ned. YMMV, because so many people lost their lives, but ''The things I do for love'' indeed.

* After Jaime gives Oathkeeper to Brienne and sends her off to find and protect Sansa on his behalf (itself a minor moment), he turns to the White Book where the deeds of the Kingsguard are recorded (and he had been disappointed before to find his own list depressingly short because of the disdain Ser Barristan Selmy held for him--Selmy didn't even include most of his tournament victories). Struggling to write with his left hand, he records [[HumiliationConga his defeats, imprisonments, disgraces and maiming.]] But he ends with ''"Returned safely to King's Landing by Brienne, the Maid of Tarth."''* Even more so when you consider how much it would mean to Brienne, who only strives to live her life by knightly ideals even though she knows for the most part she'll get nothing but scorn for it, to know that a deed of hers has been recorded in the legendary White Book for all posterity. Gods I hope she finds out about it someday.

** This may also count as a moment of awesome, as [[spoiler: despite all that Euron has done, Aeron still maintains his Faith in the Drowned God. Fucked up as that faith is, that takes determination.]]

* Everything Jon does to rescue his little beloved sister.
--> Jon: Bring her home, Mance. I saved your son from Melisandre, and now I am about to save four thousand of your free folk. You owe me this one little girl.
** And he wonders if Arya still has the sword he had made for her - as the readers have seen over and over again, Needle is the one thing Arya will never give up because it's her final reminder of home...and Jon's smile.
