In the past, I added the Arch-Enemy tropes to Balon Greyjoy's section and listed Theon and Yara as examples. I meant to place them as examples under Euron's section, since Theon and Yara were enemies of Euron, not Yara. I Didn't even realize that they were under Balon's category until I saw the edited page. I even listed Theon and Yara as his niece and nephew, since I thought I was putting it under their uncle Euron's category, and not their father Balon's category. Additionally, I recently got in trouble for overusing the Arch-Enemy trope, so I am not sure if it is okay to list Theon and Yara as archenemies to Euron.

This entry is being contested so I'm moving it here, the toning down of Theon's arrogance and cruelty seems to be the arguable part. I have no opinion myself, the example was outwardly valid, but if the info is not factual then it's not an example.

  • Adaptational Heroism: While his overall actions aren't that much different between book and tv series, Theon's arrogance and cruelty are toned down in the show.

I find this gets way overused for works like this. Any time someone acts in any way different from the source material, they're listed as either more Heroic or Villainous even though it's clearly not the writers' intention, they just had to cut some things here or there.

In this case, I'd say it doesn't really apply because he's supposed to be a giant assfaced clown to a roughly equal degree, claiming that he's nicer here is really splitting hairs.
