Another infamous figure of the Night's Watch. As the name suggests, he was a cook of the Night's Watch who was supposedly offended by an Andal King, who then visited the Nightfort. As revenge, the Rat Cook served him a delicious pie of bacon... and his own son's flesh, whe king enjoyed the pie so much that he asked for a second helping. The gods cursed the cook by turning him into a fat, white rat which could only survive by feasting on its young, condemned to run the halls of the Nightfort. Rather than because of the murder or the forced cannibalism, they did it because he broke the rules of SacredHospitality. Brothers of the Night's Watch believe he still haunts the Nightfort, and his tale inspires Wyman Manderly's killing of Walder Frey's sons and serving them as pies, while having the bards sing a son about Rat Cook (Unlike him, Wyman [[ExactWords killed the Freys the moment they were no longer his guests]].)

* TricksterArchetype: Said to have swindled Casterly Rock from the Casterlys using nothing but his wits. Another story tells of how he stole gold from the sun to brighten his hair. Another tale of the Westerlands mentions he posed as a son of Garth Greenhand - Garth having so many children he couldn't recognize he wasn't one - and made off with part of the inheritance of Garth's children.

* TheDragonslayer: In legend, Serwyn killed the dragon Urrax supposedly by approaching from behind his shield so the dragon only saw its own reflection, then [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice drove his spear]] [[EyeScream through Urrax's eye]].

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousGender / ProphecyTwist: In ''A Feast for Crows'', Maester Aemon comes to believe that the prophecy could've been mistranslated and potentially refers to a princess, rather than a prince, after Samwell Tarly tells him of Daenerys Targaryen and the birth of her dragons, which appears to fulfil several requisites of the prophecy.

* AnachronismStew: In universe. In ''The World Of Ice and Fire'', it's mentioned that the Winged Knight was erroneously considered the first member of the Kingsguard, which historically didn't make any sense, as there are hundreds, if not thousands of years between the two.

Azor Ahai was a legendary hero who lived approximately eight thousand years before Aegon's Landing. It is said that during the midst of The Long Night, Azor Ahai rose up and defeated the Others, wielding a sword of fire, called Lightbringer. While his legend covers similar ground, it's unclear if he is literally the same figure as the Last Hero of Westerosi legend.
