** Also while Bastard Bastard is listed as an "AlwaysMale" Trope, female bastards are common in ASOIAF. One, at Shield Islands, is employed by her father as a servant to her legitimate half-sisters - and when the Ironmen conquer her home and take them captive, sides with the conquerors and enjoys exchanging clothes with her sisters and forcing them to serve her. Though considering how cruelly they were described as treating her, it may be a case of just desserts.

Though considering how cruelly they were described as treating her, it may be a case of just desserts. However, it can still look harsh considering some of her sisters are just children and some of them get raped while their father is ForcedToWatch.

** Aurane Waters, the Bastard of Driftmark (his family the Velaryons rule Driftmark). Cersei appoints him to the Small Council as Grand Admiral (Master of Ships). However when Cersei is imprisoned Aurane flees King's Landing with the new dromonds and uses them to become a pirate. There are fandom theories he has other motives, but for the time being he just looks like a greedy opportunist. ** The {{Sadist}}ic Ramsay Snow is, [[spoiler: next to Joffrey]], probably the best example ASOIAF offers. Especially notable because his father openly blames this on his 'tainted blood.' It's clear that, though Roose Bolton is cruel and vicious, he's pragmatic about it and doesn't let it affect his plans. Ramsay, however, is just a SerialKiller with a noble title and is threatening his father's own power with his wanton cruelty. He is considered by many people the most evil character in the series. ** The "Great Bastards" of Aegon IV "The Unworthy", who legitimized them all on his deathbed out of spite at his only legitimate son, Daeron II "The Good". Daemon Blackfyre tried to overthrow Daeron, and may have been persuaded into this by another of Aegon's bastards, Aegor Rivers "Bittersteel", who had a feud with his half-brother Brynden Rivers "Bloodraven". Bloodraven plays with this, being a sinister figure who used ruthless methods to oppose the Blackfyres, the descendants of Daemon, even killing Daemon and two of his sons in battle, executing another of Daemon's sons despite an offer of safe conduct, and turning the Seven Kingdoms into a Police State with his spying methods when he was Hand of the King to his Daeron's son and successor Aerys I. He was unpopular among the people and believed to be a sorcerer [[spoiler:which seems to have been true]], but seems to be one of the most morally ambiguous characters in a world full of such figures. [[spoiler:TheReveal he is the Three-Eyed Crow adds to this.]]

After Daemon was killed, Aegor continued trying to seat Daemon's descendants on the Iron Throne for the rest of his life.

* Prince Dmitry in ''LightNovel/HeavyObject'' is knee-deep in corruption and nepotism, including being connected to the assassination of other claimants to the throne of Volga. The suspected reason is that claims of his birth mother being a "surrogate" are a lie covering up the King's indiscretion. As Volga is a matrilineal country this would leave him with no right to the crown unless he can wipe out all the legitimate heirs and make himself the only option for a continuous line.

* [[BrokenBird Tess]] [[DarkActionGirl Mercer]] on ''{{Smallville}}'' is TheBaroness. She's a cold-blooded BrokenAce CorruptCorporateExecutive and ManipulativeBastard, [[AntiVillain and]] a WellIntentionedExtremist [[IronWoobie who takes no crap from anyone]], even after the reveal that she is [[spoiler:Lionel Luthor]]'s bastard daughter. Her [[AlternateUniverse Earth-2 counterpart]], on the other hand, who was raised by her father in the [[TheUnfavourite shadow of his legitimate children]]? She's a whiny mess of ParentalIssues, who can't decide if she wants to be DaddysLittleVillain or [[BastardUnderstudy stab him in the back]], and is in an [[VillainousIncest incestuous relationship]] with [[spoiler: her adopted brother Clark]]. Jeez. What a difference an upbringing makes.

* This trope could just as easily be called [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} The Loki]]. Son of a powerful ruler? Check. More popular, heroic, half-brother who is heir to the kingdom? Check. {{Freudian Excuse}}s out the wa-zoo? You betcha!

** Craster, a wildling North of the wall and [[TokenEvilTeammate uncertain ally]] of the Night's Watch, is the bastard of a Night's Watch ranger and wildling woman from Whitetree. He is called a "kinslayer, liar, raper and craven". Craster is notorious for [[ParentalIncest marrying his daughters]] and [[spoiler:sacrifices his sons to the [[HumanoidAbomination Others]].]] However, calling him a bastard is a BerserkButton for him.
