* AbsenteeActor: With such a huge EnsembleCast, this is inevitable. Only two actors appeared in every episode that aired before their characters were killed off: [[spoiler:Creator/MarkAddy (Robert Baratheon) and Creator/SeanBean (Ned Stark)]]. And they died in the first season.

* DeadStarWalking: The bigger name an actor is in this show, the more likely they are to get killed horribly. Special mention goes to Ian [=McShane=], whose character barely lasts an episode.

** Ian [=McShane=]’s initial reason for being in the show was to work with his old friends, Charles Dance and Stephan Dillane. But he was surprised that [[spoiler:they're not in the show anymore after their characters are killed off]] by the time he joined the show. So, this trope became his reason for being in the show despite having only one episode and had no regrets for casually spoiling what his role was.

** Sean Bean was sick with the flu when he recorded the scenes where Ned Stark lays abed in A Golden Crown, so Ned's unwell demeanor is genuine.

* GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld: Signs would George R. R. Martin's contributions to and control over the series has dwindled at least somewhat after Season 4. He has notably not written any episode screenplays for Season 5-6 and he has all but openly stated his currently involvement as a consultant on the series holds no actual deciding power and is purely advisory, noting that HBO could decide to include an AlienInvasion and he wouldn't be able to stop them if they wanted to go through with it.

** VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics and VideoGame/TacticsOgre are two SquareEnix games that are thematically similar to Games of Thrones that the localization team decided to write the dialogue as PurpleProse right down to using the spelling of "Ser" as opposed to using plain English.

** In "Battle of the Bastards", Jon declares he's defeated worse than Ramsay Bolton, prompting Sansa to insist he doesn't know Ramsay. In a preview of ''The Winds of Winter'', it's Stannis and Theon who have this exchange, but where Jon proceeds by [[CommanderContrarian unsuccessfully]] asking for a better strategy, Stannis answers, "[[BadassBoast No more than he knows me]]," and moments later [[WhamEpisode seizes]] TheMole in his camp, nullifying the Boltons' main ace-in-the-hole.
