These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Genius Bonus: At one point Ned Stark observes that Tywin Lannister is "as much fox as lion". Rennaisance philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli famously wrote in his classic work on politics, The Prince, that "The prince needs to be both a fox to avoid the snares and a lion to scare away the wolves".
One-Scene Wonder: Ser Waymar Royce. Dead by the end of the prologue like almost everyone else met during it (the Sole Survivor dying in the first chapter proper), but he got one hell of a memorable Dying Moment of Awesome and a decent amount of personality, considering his limited pagetime.
