- Angst? What Angst?: Myrcella and Tommen seem pretty chill about the fact that Jasper executed their parents.
- Base-Breaking Character: You'll either love Jasper or hate him, or teeter towards one or the other as the story progresses. This was Psykic Ninja's intent.
- Fan Nickname: The slaughter of Daenerys and her inner circle has been dubbed "The Red Feast" by readers.
- Intended Audience Reaction: You're supposed to be unsure as to whether or not you like Jasper or at least feel he should win because he's, supposedly, the lesser of two evils. The author feels this makes him a more three-dimensional character.
- Magnificent Bastard: Jasper has become this by the end of the story, emerging as the undisputed ruler of Westeros.
- Rooting for the Empire: During the "Father against Son" arc, most readers sided with Jasper, if the reviews are anything to go by.
- The Woobie: Poor Barristan Selmy. By the time of his death, you'll want to give him a hug.
- Myrcella Baratheon becomes this after learning the truth of her parentage.
