** Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers gets this mostly because he looks like [[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric]] and for possessing both [[XMeetsY Valyrian and First Men]] abilities. Fans usually gloss over the fact that Rivers let thousands die during the Great Spring Sickness while devoting most of his time on a feud with Bittersteel, as well as using magic to convert Westeros into a PoliceState. He can be seen as a WellIntentionedExtremist, as his ruthless methods seem to have been necessary.

** Jaime Lannister is known within the world as one of, if not the best, swordsmen around. The 2010 suvudu.com "cage matches" between fictional characters drew a large contingent of supporters for Jaime, who bested [[Literature/HarryPotter Hermione Granger]] and Cthulhu, among others, before facing off against ''TheWheelOfTime'''s CrystalDragonJesus, [[TheChosenOne Rand al'Thor]]. Martin wrote short descriptions of how he thought Jaime would win, which usually relied on Tyrion providing him a gameplan.

** Varys arguably crosses it when he [[spoiler:murders Kevan Lannister to deliberately destabilise the realm. Regardless of his supposed good intentions, he's dooming thousands more to die, even though it's supposedly for the realm's good]].

* CrackPairing: Domeric Bolton is sometimes paired with Lyanna Stark, due to a comment from Roose about them riding togheter. Mind you that Domeric probably was almost [[WritersCannotDoMath a decade younger than Lyanna]].

** With his [[spoiler: physical and mental degradation after being killed and resurrected many times]], FlamingSword, TwentyFourHourArmor, and {{Determinator}} attitude, Beric Dondarrion sounds quite a lot like a ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' protagonist.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: Certainly Martin's most famous work, yet he seems to care more about ''Literature/WildCards''.

* ShipToShipCombat: In-universe example with the Rhaeger/Lyanna/Robert mess. Although Rhaeger running off with Lyanna was seen as a catastrophic situation all round, there are differing opinions over the couples. Robert, Brandon Stark and their supporters were obviously Robert/Lyanna shippers who thought he and Lyanna were in love and that Rhaeger kidnapped her, while Rhaeger's supporters are more sympathetic to Rhaeger/Lyanna, still speak of the Prince as a romantic who developed mutual feelings for Lyanna and perceive them as StarCrossedLovers. Meanwhile Ned was aware that Lyanna never loved Robert, realizes that Robert never properly knew Lyanna and speaks highly of Rhaeger despite everything. Meanwhile the Martells supported the Rhaeger/Elia match and were furious that Rhaeger abandoned his proper wife and got her killed.
