* ScheherezadeGambit: He keeps Gollum from eating him by proposing him a game of riddles.
** 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.

* {{Fiction 500}}: ''Forbes'' has [[http://www.forbes.com/special-report/2012/fictional-15-12/smaug.html done]] [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelnoer/2011/04/06/how-much-is-smaug-tolkei-dragon-worth/ extensive]] [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelnoer/2012/04/23/how-much-is-a-dragon-worth-revisited/ research]] on the question of just how rich he really is. The final official tally has him richer than Bill Gates, but not quite as rich as Carlos Slim Helu. Smaug is said to be the wealthiest character in fiction. Ironic that the wealthiest character in fiction can't use (and technically doesn't need) any of his wealth. [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped Then again, one of the major messages in the book is that Greed is a flaw; a negative, destructive trait (when Gordon Gekko said "Greed is good" he was wrong)]].

Wolf-like monsters living around the foothills of the Misty Mountains, the Wargs are allies of the Goblins, often joining them on raids on human towns and in their enmity against the Dwarves.



%%* SavageWolves

to:

%%* SavageWolves* SavageWolves: Like their Goblin allies, Wargs are inherently creatures of evil and enemies to the free peoples of Middle Earth. That said, a line is explicitly drawn between the evil Wargs and normal wolves, which are stated to be regular animals, and thus neither good nor evil.



Also see Sauron's character sheet in ''Characters/TheLordOfTheRings'' and ''Characters/TheSilmarillion''.

to:

A dark presence residing in southern Mirkwood that Gandalf goes to confront. Also see Sauron's character sheet sheets in ''Characters/TheLordOfTheRings'' and ''Characters/TheSilmarillion''.

* OddNameOut: The only dwarf with a last name, and the only one whose name doesn't rhyme with or otherwise sound similar to that of at least one other dwarf in the company. Though it does rhyme with his great-great-uncle Borin (great-grandfather of Balin, Dwalin, Óin, and Glóin).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Most of the dwarves do nothing to distinguish themselves.
