* RightForTheWrongReason: When Brienne sets out on her quest to find Sansa, she reasons that she would have fled to the Vale, since Lysa is her only living relative in a secure location. Turns out that's exactly where Sansa is going, but by no choice of her own, because that's where Littlefinger's plots take them.

** Once upon a time, [[Literature/{{Cinderella}} there was a girl growing up in her father's house]] with a WickedStepmother and her evil stepsisters, who forced her to live amongst the servants and do all the chores. Then one day, their household was set upon by Ironborn reavers, who took the place over and raped everyone, except pretty Falia Flowers who became the willing courtesan of the [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys evil-but-very-pretty]] Pirate King Euron. She persuaded Euron to make her enslaved erstwhile family serve in the nude while her poor father watched, and she laughed and laughed and laughed while they were gang raped. The End.

** Edmure Tully does this during the siege of Riverrun. He hands the castle over to Jaime Lannister and Emmon Frey as agreed, but allows his uncle Brynden Blackfish to escape and simply says that he was "required to surrender the castle, not [his] uncle."

He hands the castle over to Jaime Lannister and Emmon Frey as agreed, but allows his uncle Brynden Blackfish to escape and simply says that he was "required to surrender the castle, not [his] uncle."" Jaime turns this around on him, though. Having promised him treatment suitable to his station, he points out that plenty of nobles have died in Casterly Rock's dungeons.

* OnlySaneMan: [[spoiler: Pycelle goes from being the Lannisters' ProfessionalButtKisser that he was when Tywin was alive to being this for Cersei's regime, desperately trying his best to stop her ongoing parade of StupidEvil EpicFail actions; notable examples include pointing out when Cersei declares the crown is defaulting on repayments of its debts to the Iron Bank of Braavos that it's not a good idea to make an enemy of an organisation notorious for getting its money back by ''any'' means necessary (even to the point of financing the enemies of its debtors), it's not a good idea to let the Faith of the Seven reform [[ChurchMilitant its own private army]] when it took the Targaryens 11 years of war and a grudging peace treaty to put down the Faith Militant the last time they were powerful and it's not a good idea to put important royal assets in the hands of incompetent or untrustworthy cronies of hers. Pycelle's warnings all prove accurate when Cersei's efforts at ruling result in the economy of Westeros all but collapsing, the Faith of the Seven in command of a private army of religious fanatics with no respect for her authority and the man she placed in charge of the royal navy absconding with the new fleet she all but bankrupted the realm to pay for to set himself up as a pirate]].

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Many of Cersei's decisions as Queen Regent backfire spectacularly for this reason.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Many of Cersei's decisions as Queen Regent backfire spectacularly for this reason. Notable examples include deferring on loan repayments to the [[MorallyBankruptBanker Iron Bank of Braavos]] (an organisation notorious for getting its money back by ''any'' means necessary), prompting the Iron Bank to demand full repayment on all its loans in Westeros and while refusing to extend credit, all but crippling the nation's economy, and when Cersei tries to alleviate the problem by negotiating a deal with the Faith of the Seven, freeing the crown from its debts in exchange for letting the Faith revive its old [[ChurchMilitant military orders]], she doesn't consider the idea of re-arming a band of religious fanatics who have a history of fighting with the monarch might not be a good one.
