* SanitySlippage: Starts to lose it when he finally gets his throne and gold, but manages to pull himself back from the brink at the last minute. Thereafter he seems to realize what a jerk he's been and is more cordial to both his allies and enemies.

* {{Badass}}: He's very strong, especially in his bear form.



* {{Badass}}: He's an ancient, powerful dragon, it comes with the territory (see Our Dragons Are Different). He also single-handedly destroyed a kingdom, killing nearly all of its people, and captured a city.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not entirely clear what he is. His enormous size, combined with his ability to transform into a bear, seem to imply that he's not entirely human, but it's difficult to say what else he could be. Gandalf speculates that he's either a descendant of the bears who lived in the Misty Mountains before the Stone-giants arrived or a descendant of the men who lived in the region before the arrival of foul beings and beasts from the north.

** Actually, Gollum is the one who proposes the riddle game, while trying to think of a way to eat Bilbo without facing down his sword. But Bilbo definitely accepts in order to buy time.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: "The Quest of Erebor" in ''Literature/{{Unfinished Tales|of Numenor and Middle Earth}}'', Gandalf states that part of the reason he pushed Bilbo into joining Thorin and Co. on their expedition was because Smaug knows the scent of dwarves too well for them to effect a stealth mission, but the dragon would likely not be familiar with the smell of a hobbit. Smaug, in his ultimate moment of GenreSavvy, overcomes this lack of knowledge by [[spoiler: tracing the origin of Bilbo and the dwarves to Lake-town and attacking there instead.]]



* SmugSnake: Despite his [[GenreSavvy cunning and crafty mind]], Smaug is absolutely sure of his invincibility, showing off his gem-encrusted armor to Bilbo and never once considers the possibility of the hobbit actually finding [[AchillesHeel a weak spot]] [[FatalFlaw to exploit.]]

* ImprobableAimingSkills: The books establish early on that Bilbo is impossibly accurate when throwing stones, to the point that he could ''knock birds out of the air.''
