** Also in Balin's Tomb, Frodo has just recieved what everyone -including him- thinks is a fatal wound from the Cave Troll. Merry and Pippin's response after their [[HeroicBSOD initial shock?]] Reverse grip their short swords, [[RoaringRampageofRevenge let out angry cries, jump on the Cave Troll's shoulders,]] and start '''stabbing the shit out of it.'''

*** Now remember he basically killed every man riding this thing. How many were there? Like fifteen? Twenty? Yeah, Legolas wins this round.

--->So passed the sword of the Barrow-downs, work of Westernesse. But glad would he have been to know its fate who wrought it slowly long ago in the North-kingdom when the Dunedain were young, and chief among their foes was the dread realm of Angmar and its sorcerer king. No other blade, not though mightier hands had wielded it, would have dealt that foe a wound so bitter, cleaving the undead flesh, breaking the spell that knit his unseen sinews to his will.

* When the Ring tempts Sam and he, not an Elf Queen, not an angelic Wizard, not the designated King of Men, just a humble [[EveryMan EveryHobbit]] gardener, refuses it.

---> Before it stood stern, untouchable now by pity, a figure robed in white, but at its breast it held a wheel of fire. Out of the fire there spoke a commanding voice. "Begone, and trouble me no more! If you touch me ever again, you shall be cast yourself into the Fire of Doom."

* Sam's charge into Cirith Ungol ("Spider Tower) in order to rescue Frodo is simply priceless. He's barely halfway through them and the orcs are ''convinced'' that there's a mighty Elf Lord around, with a sword ''and'' an axe and magical fire.

** ''FARMER MAGGOT!'' - asking Khamul the Shadow of the east to "Go back to where you came from, or else I will send my dogs after you!". Yep, a sturdy hobbit farmer asked the second-in-command Nazgûl to go to hell (or more accurately {{Mordor}}). And he left...

--> '''Gandalf:''' No, I should not put it so. Say instead that the Ring has no power over him. [[ArcWords He is his own master]]... He might [take and guard the Ring], if all the free folk of the world begged him, but he would not understand the need. And if he were given the Ring, he would soon forget it, or most likely throw it away. [[BlessedWithSuck Such things have no hold on his mind.]] He would be a most unsafe guardian...

** We're first shown a short clip of Sauron's orcs rampaging around Middle-Earth, before we hear Galadriel's voice say "But there were some...who resisted." Next thing we see is an army of men boldly marching straight at a massive horde of orcs at the foot of Mount Doom. We then cut to a shot of the aforementioned massive horde of orcs charging at the almost equally large Last Alliance army...who then proceed to ''wipe the floor with the orcs.''

* A quiet one, but: Frodo and Aragorn's last meeting on Amon Hen. We've just seen Boromir driven mad by desire of the Ring, attacking Frodo to get it, and reduced to sobbing and clawing at the dirt. Right on the heels of this, Frodo comes face to face with Aragorn, cringes away in fear, and then, when Aragorn realizes why, actually ''offers him'' the Ring open-palmed. Aragorn walks toward him, eyes burning in his face, reaches toward it...then drops to his knees and gently closes Frodo's hand over the Ring. This moment - the only Man able to refuse the One Ring - was given to Faramir in the book, but it is more emotional (if more predictable) given to Aragorn. Jackson observed that they never got to say farewell in the book, and putting this scene in the movie tied the resulting 'Frodo arc' and 'Aragorn arc' together.

*** Also, the fact that the Orks are scared proves that the Riders of Rohan are seriously terrifying when they want to be. They just keep coming no matter how many arrows the Uruks fire and that is not something they've seen before.

*** Also, the fact that the Orks are scared proves that the Riders of Rohan are seriously terrifying when they want to be. They just keep coming no matter how many arrows the Uruks fire and that is not something they've seen before. The ''fury'' of the Rohirrim terrifies and demoralizes the Orcs, causing them to break ranks and flee rather than stand their ground and meet the massive cavalry charge with their pikes. ''Before the battle was even joined the Orcs had already lost.''

* The entire Bridge of Khazad-dûm scene is masterfully translated to screen. Everyone runs over the bridge while badass music plays, and then tiny, frail-looking Gandalf battles a gigantic, flaming demon three times his size. And to crown it all is when he yells his famous, "you shall not pass!" line. The delivery is a crowning moment of awesome in and of itself, but it shows that Gandalf is no longer a charming old man who can magically shoot fireworks, but is now a supreme force of good who will face evil incarnate, and ''kick its ass.''

*** Let us allow Harry Knowles of ''Ain't it Cool'' to explain this to us. "...The bridge sequence is ungodly cool...the sort of ungodly cool that...welll... I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW COOL THIS SEQUENCE WAS! I've never seen anything like it... This is Cinema, big and showing me things my imagination has never conceived of. I was giggly-happy and dumbstruck all at once. Then I saw the Balrog. No s***! I've seen the Thing of Shadow and Fire as it breaks through a wall. My God. This thing is enormous, horns like a black ram from the pit of Hell itself. Old cracked horns. Fire coming out of the cracked skin. Glowing mean-as-f*** eyes..."
