** Catelyn's need to protect her family drives her to impulsive actions that often work to the detriment of her family (such as kidnapped Tyrion and releasing Jaime). Her release of Jaime, in particular, is one of the major factors that leads to the death of her and Robb.

** The Starks' reoccurring flaw is that they often assume that others share their morals and principles. This naivety often leads to the Starks being manipulated and contributes to several of their deaths.

** The Emperor's arrogance and detachment from humanity.

to:

** The Emperor's arrogance and detachment from humanity. He never felt the need to explain himself, and assumed that no one would betray or disobey him regardless of what he did. He also couldn't comprehend people's seeming need to believe in a higher power, and thus never believed that his own anti-religious actions would eventually lead to his people worshiping him, as the priest in The Last Church rightly observed.



** The Chaos Gods' selfishness which is why cooperation between them is impossible.

to:

** The Chaos Gods' selfishness which is why cooperation between them is impossible.impossible, and ultimately why they will never win.



** The Tau's belief in The Greater Good.

to:

** The Tau's belief in The Greater Good. It's heavily implied their tolerance for other cultures and liberal ideology will lead to the extinction of their species, especially in a universe where [[ReligionOfEvil Chaos]] exists. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop Yes, you just read that correctly]].


Added DiffLines:

** Most of the primarchs had one. Horus' was his obsession with glory, Mortarion's lack of self-confidence which led him to seek guidance from the wrong people, Alpharius' constant desire to prove his brilliance which [[{{Chessmaster}} ironically made him]] easy for both Chaos and the Cabal to manipulate, [[TheResenter Perturabo's resentment]] at never receiving the recognition he felt he deserved, [[TheFundamentalist Lorgar's]] need to follow a higher power which drew him to the Chaos gods... and that's just the traitor primarchs. There's also Guilliman's [[ControlFreak obsessive need for orthodoxy]], Dorn's single-minded determination and straightforward attitude [[AttackAttackAttack which at times translated poorly to warfare]], Leman Russ' UndyingLoyalty which led to him never questioning his orders...

** The intense pride that the Vale Lords hold for their homeland has blinded them to any flaws within them, and whenever danger comes knocking at their door they are more than content to simply hole up in their mountains and ride it out relatively unscathed. Notably averted during Robert's Rebellion when Jon Arryn rallied the Houses of The Vale against the Mad King, and then played brutally straight during the War of Five Kings while under the leadership of Lysa Arryn.

* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' the fatal flaw is Arrogance. Like in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' the Emperor staunchly refuses to admit that he was wrong but even more than that constantly belittles everyone including his most loyal Custodian "Little Kitten" and thinks he's smarter and greater than everyone else (which he is). By doing this he causes Horus to start the Horus Heresy and put him on the Golden Throne and unable to communicate for ten millennium, [[spoiler:lose Kitten's faith in him along with the position of Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes]], and his other Primarch "son" [[spoiler:Magnus the Red to try to run the Imperium himself.]] It's PlayedForLaughs in "The Emperor and Kitten Play a Children's Card Game" short where the Emperor gives Kitten a "terrible" ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' deck so he can beat Kitten in two turns with a deliberately broken deck that takes the bulk of the episode to do. Only to be beaten with two cards that exploit the fatal weakness of the Emp's strategy. He doesn't take losing very well.

** As the Emperor says "[[AC:[[LikeFatherLikeSon Like fucking father, like fucking son]]]]": Magnus the Red has the same problem of arrogance as the Emperor. Possessing great wisdom and knowledge Magnus believes himself to be smarter and better than everyone around him (which he is), including his father (which he's not), but his arrogance is also very fragile as he complains like a whiny teenager when his father bullies him (which is a lot).
