He is only the 2nd son of the King, a 'spare', but that changes when things rather left in the dark come to light, and Westeros is torn asunder by treachery and ambition. Winter is coming... but magic is might.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Tropes That Apply to Both]]
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: The smallfolk adore Harry.
* AGodAmI: Cersei is trying to get the High Septon to declare Harry a saint. Taken UpToEleven in the rewrite, in which [[spoiler:The Stranger(a.k.a., Death)]] calls Harry "Master."
* TheAce: Harry-smart, kind, good with a sword, loved by the people and proficient in magic.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Joffrey is afraid of Harry surpassing him, something he confides to in his mother. Cersei already senses this might lead to trouble.
* BadassGrandpa: Tywin. He verbally demolishes Harry during their first meeting, and following the timeskip, Harry is forced to admit that he harbors a begrudging respect for the man.
* BerserkButton: Don't mess with Aeryn in front of Harry. Just don't. Hurting or threatening to hurt Myrcella or Cersei is also a pretty stupid thing to do.
** Jaime isn't at all happy when Harry pesters him with questions about the Sack of King's Landing and his betrayal of King Aerys.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Harry again, as Allar Deem and friends discover.
* BigBrotherBully: Joffrey, as usual, but here there's more emphasis on the possibility that he sexually abuses Myrcella.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Harry is very concerned with Myrcella's well-being.
* BrokenPedestal: After [[spoiler: his encounter with the ghosts of Elia and Rhaenys]], Harry's respect for his father all but vanishes.
* BrutalHonesty: Genna plainly tells Aeryn that she'll always be known as "the Black Prince's whore", but softens it by saying she can still be happy as a [[TheMistress mistress]].
* CallingTheOldManOut: Harry calls Robert out for condoning the deaths of innocent people, namely Elia and her children, during his rebellion.
* CoolOldLady: Harry's great-aunt Genna.
* CuteGhostGirl: Subverted. The female ghosts Harry encounters are all disturbing in their own way. Special notice goes to [[spoiler: Elia Martell]], who, instead of the FragileFlower Harry expects her to be, is one existential plane away from a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge bloody rampage]].
* [[SonOfAWhore Daughter of a Whore]]: Aeryn
* DomesticAbuse: Cersei is abused by Robert, but tries to hide it from the children. Harry finds out when the three of them get into an argument.
* GoodCounterpart: [[TheAce Harry]] is set up to become this to [[BadassGrandpa Tywin]], many characters note the resemblance, among them Kevan, Tywin's most loyal supporter and brother. Harry is ruthlessly efficient and has little care for those who would come between him and his plans, or attempt something on his family, much like his grandfather. Notably, Harry is just as protective of Myrcella as Tywin was with Genna back when they were younger. Perhaps the most notable element, however, is their ability to make the most out of a bad situation: Tywin was left in a horrible situation because of his father that was too good and passive for [[CrapsackWorld Westerosi society]], but managed to remake the Lannister name, whereas Harry is in a bad situation because Joffrey is too evil, stupid and cruel even for [[EvenEvilHasStandards Westerosi society]], but he fully embraces becoming the Heir of Casterly Rock, even if it might hurt his uncle Tyrion's feelings, to control Joffrey and keep him under his thumb.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Myrcella and Aeryn. Very much subverted (if not outright ''averted'') with Cersei, as in Canon.
* HighClassCallGirl: Aeryn's mother.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Cersei insists that Harry try to get along with Joffrey because they're brothers, but when he reminds her that Tyrion is her brother, she tells him to shut up.
* IncestSubtext: Mrycella often fantasies about her and Harry in the role of Queen Naerys and Aemon the Dragonknight. A conversation between her and Cersei compares her separation from Harry to that of Cersei from Jaime.
* InSeriesNickname: Harry has a few-Harry the Kind, the Black Lion, the Black Prince. Hell, his birth name is Harrold--yes, it's really spelled that way.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Harry, by way of being a wizard.
* JacobMarleyApparel: Used disturbingly so, considering all the gruesome deaths that happened within the Red Keep. Princess Rhaenyra actually has a high status among the other ghosts for how horrifically her body was mutilated after being fed to her brother's dragon.
* MamaBear: Amaerys, especially in the original, where she kills Allar Deem after Harry has him locked up.
** Cersei gets a more [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] one where, after Harry berates Robert for his hedonistic lifestyle and is hit for it, she stands up for her son.
* MommasBoy: Joffrey and Harry. In the latter's case, this extends to nearly killing Robert when he drunkenly starts beating Cersei.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: A familial version. Cersei can't tell if she loves Harry for being her son, or hates him for being Robert's. It confuses Harry to no end why she treats him so differently from his siblings.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: During a "friendly" sparring match, Joffrey pushes Harry too far by threatening Aeryn and Myrcella, prompting Harry to beat the tar out of him.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: There is an abundance of ghost in the Red Keep. Only Harry can see them.
* OverlyLongScream: [[spoiler:Rhaenys Targaryen]] in her first appearance. This is a rare case where its PlayedForDrama.
* PastLifeMemories: Harry often dreams of his past life.
* PassedOverInheritance: Tywin makes Harry his heir so he can pass over Tyrion.
* ParentalFavoritism: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] with Cersei. She dotes on Joffrey just as much as she does in the books, yet at the same time her relationship with Harry is very close. The original story even had her admit to herself that Harry and Joffrey would eventually come to blows, and she was unsure which one to side with. This may not seem like much, but considering how utterly worshipful she usually is towards Joffrey, the fact that she's actually unsure whether she should choose him over Harry means ''a lot''.
* ParentalNeglect: Robert leaves raising his children to other people.
* ParentalSubstitute: Since Robert ignores his children, Harry looks to Jon Arryn, his uncles, and later Tywin for guidance.
* PeopleOfHairColor: Harry is the only one of Cersei's children to have Robert's black hair, though his eyes are green like hers. Aeryn has the Valyrian look (MysticalWhiteHair, PurpleEyes) possibly from both her mother, a Lyseni[[note]]Valyrian features are common in Lys[[/note]] whore, and her father, a man from Driftmark[[note]]The seat of House Velaryon, the non-Targaryen descendants of people who survived the Doom[[/note]]. Most people in Lannisport have blond hair, which makes Harry stand out.
* PetTheDog: After the debacle involving the rapists, Stannis offers to let one of Harry's friends become a sailor upon learning that the boy wanted to become one.
** Cersei comforts Harry after he saves her from one of Robert's drunken assaults. She even covers for him by making it look like Robert slipped in some spilled wine.
* PragmaticVillainy: When Harry asks Tywin if he would have stabbed Rhaenys half a hundred times like Amory Lorch did, Tywins answers, "No, once would have been enough."
* RapeAsDrama: Aeryn.
** See CallingTheOldManOut. Harry berates Robert for his brutality, even scathingly declaring that Lyanna Stark would be disgusted by Robert's actions.
* SceneryPorn: Some of the location descriptions veer in this directions, especially those of Lannisport and Casterly Rock.
* SecretKeeper: Invoked by Cersei, who tells Harry one of her secrets in exchange being told about his powers. Her secret is that [[spoiler: when she was pregnant with Harry, she hated the idea of a second child and drank abortifacients to get rid of him. After he was born, she grew to love him.]]
* SiblingRivalry: Harry and Joffrey hate each other, to put it mildly.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: A lesson that just about all the adults in his life keep trying to teach Harry, and [[CrapsackWorld not without reason]].
* StreetUrchin: Aeryn and her friends. Thanks to Harry, Aeryn later gets bumped up to be Genna Lannister's maid.
* SternTeacher: Tywin to Harry.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Harry chose to become the heir to Casterly Rock because he felt being the head of one of the wealthiest and most influential families in westeros would allow him to at least partially control Joffrey's behaviour much like his grandfather did with the last two kings.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: [[spoiler: [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Elia Martell]]]] is offended that Harry thinks her death was merely "wrong."
--> Wrong, little lion, is being humiliated, or robbed, or cheated. What happened to me was far from ''wrong''.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Harry for Robert. [[BrokenPedestal At first.]]
* WhiteAndGreyMorality: Surprisingly, considering its [[CrapsackWorld Westeros]]. There are clashes between Harry's idealism and his family's ShootTheDog philosophy.
* WideEyedIdealist: Harry at first. His parents and uncles make sure to remind him that being a prince doesn't mean life will be a bed of roses. A few years with Tywin tones this down considerably, but he's still not as cynical as the rest of his family.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Harry at the beginning, thanks to his memories from his previous life. Lampshaded by Ser Barriston, who tells him he's too serious for a nine-year old, and by Robert, who states that Harry is smarter than a boy his age has a right to be.
* WouldHurtAChild: Robert and Tywin would. After seeing [[spoiler: Princess Rhaenys' ghost]], Harry starts to question everything he thought about his father and grandfather.
* {{Yandere}}: Aeryn seems to be turning into one of these for Harry.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Aeryn's mother.
[[/folder]]
[[folder:Tropes That Apply to ''The Prince Who Was Promised'']]
* AlphaBitch: Elaine Lydden post-TimeSkip.
** LovableAlphaBitch: Cerenna and Myrielle Lannister, especially Myrielle.
* DeadFic: Abandoned and rewritten, to be more precise.
* DrowningMySorrows: Tyrion gets ridiculously drunk after learning that Tywin is giving Casterly Rock to Harry. He then proceeds to give Harry a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech verbal beatdown]].
* MessianicArchetype: Cersei tries to invoke this by demanding the High Septon to anoint Harry in public. She wants his magical powers to be seen as a gift from the gods.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Tyrion gave one to Harry. Though he was drunk and bitter at the time, his criticisms actually make sense, something Harry admits when Tyrion tries to apologize for it later.
* TimeSkip: The series begins shortly before Harry's ninth nameday but the eighth chapter skips to him around his fourteenth/fifteenth.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Pre-TimeSkip, Elaine was sweet and somewhat shy, but in Aeryn's POV, she's [[AlphaBitch extremely self-centered and condescending]].
[[/folder]]
[[folder:Tropes That Apply to ''The Black Prince'']]
* AdaptedOut: Elaine Lydden has yet to appear in the rewrite.
* AndIMustScream: Lady Evelyn traps the souls of her dead enemies in the trees surrounding her castle. Harry is shocked, but due to his lessons with Tywin, he can't bring himself to fully condemn her.
* ArrangedMarriage: Harry is betrothed to Margaery Tyrell.
** HappilyArrangedMarriage: They get along rather well, to the point of Harry revealing himself as a wizard to her. While Margaery is shocked, she steels herself and decides not to call off the engagement.
* AtLeastIAdmitIt: When Aeryn asks Margaery if she truly loves Harry, Margaery is about to say yes, but then thinks about it and ultimately admits that she ''wants'' to fall in love with him, and intends to do so. Aeryn lampshades this trope in response.
* BreakThemByTalking: Margaery verbally demolishes Aeryn in their first conversation, despite Aeryn managing to score a few verbal shots of her own.
* CaptainObvious: Margaery's first words to Harry are "You're bleeding." Her grandmother's response?
--> '''Olenna''': "And you, dear, are almost as talented as your oafish father at stating the obvious."
* ColdBloodedTorture: Harry's interrogation of the Essosi mercenaries and Xen Xakhar (see MindRape). In case of the latter, he's also telekinetically strangling the warlock as he rips into his mind.
* ContinuityReboot
* CreepyChild: Myrielle Lannister shows signs of being a budding sociopath, such as an interest in watching people die.
** Even Harry isn't immune to this. While a nice guy for the most part, he tends to make the deaths of his victims rather messy. On the other hand, they do [[AssholeVictim tend to have it coming.]]
* DeathByAdaptation: Harry butchers Allar Deem and Toret rather than imprisoning or torturing them.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Ser Brenden is murdered in an ambush by a group of mercenaries.
* {{Foil}}: Harry is this to Robb Stark, both are [[TheAce Aces]] that cause complexes to their bastard brothers, both are the heirs to their fathers, even if Harry doesn't know it, both have been noted to be pretty, and currently both are set to be the Wardens of the West and North respectively. However, while Robb has often been noted for his inexperience and never quite gets over his reputation as a ''boy'', Harry is often noted for his potential, despite being falsely believed to be the second son there is a very real possibility of him getting the crown instead of Joffrey, is often stated to be wiser than he should be at his age, and people often consider him a ''man'', if not in years then in mind.
** While Robb has a great relationship with his family and idolizes his father, Harry has a mixed relation with his own family, loves Cersei, Myrcella and Tommen, gets along well with Jaime, Renly and Tyrion, but doesn't like Stannis, Joffrey or Tywin, even if he does respect Tywin for his methods and efficiency, and his last interactions with Stannis, mainly his PetTheDog moment, made him re-think his opinnion of his uncle, and while he used to idolize his own father, Harry quickly grew disillusioned because of what Robert did in the war.
** Robb is humble and somber, while Harry is ambitious and festive, both are similarily men of principles, but Harry becomes more pragmatic because he is taught by [[FourStarBadass Tywin Lannister]], and while both have their bouts of anger, in Harry's case it's much more visible, to the point that he has killed men long before Robb, and it is an even bigger problem for him, to the point that he is the [[RedOniBlueOni red to any of his partner's blue]].
** Finally both were engaged to a woman of a family of high-status (Roslin Frey for Robb and Margeary Tyrell for Harry) but had a special relationship with another woman (Aeryn for Harry, Jeyne Westerling/Talisa Maegyr for Robb) but while Robb ultimately decides to follow his heart, and it costs him everything including his life, Harry knows his duty and sticks with Margeary, and not only do they seem well on the way to love each other, but this ultimately will mean that, when the series starts, with his position, birth and marriage, Harry would have the Reach, the Stormlands, and posibly the Westerlands when the War of the Five Kings begins, meaning he will have the strongest position.
* InTheBlood: According to Lady Evelyn, magic can be learned, but it is more potent if passed down genetically.
** Since Margaery's maternal aunt, Malora Hightower, is a witch, [[FridgeLogic this indicates]] that Margaery may have a bit of magic in her that she hasn't tapped into yet... unless her aunt and mother are half-siblings (their father married ''four times''!) and the gift was passed down maternally.
* MindRape: Harry has a talent for it, and will mercilessly use it to get information from his victims before he kills them.
* NotSoAboveItAll: When Margaery verbally one-ups Aeryn to the point of driving the latter to run off in anger, she feels both proud and ashamed, despite not wishing to feel either.
* {{Sadist}}: Harry is a special case. He doesn't inflict pain on others ForTheEvulz, but piss him off and you will suffer greatly and perish cruelly.
* SilkHidingSteel: Margaery. She's visibly shocked and frightened to learn that her husband-to-be is a wizard, but she swallows her fear and sticks by him. When he refuses to share all of his secrets with her because he fears she lacks to mental fortitude to take it all in, she responds by giving him a TakeThatKiss and boldly declaring her intent to prove him wrong. And all under a masterfully constructed facade of being submissive and "proper".
** Taken to a ''literal'' extreme when, in light of [[spoiler:the Faceless Men's attempt on Harry's life]], she starts carrying a dagger under her skirt at Harry's insistence.
