%%* ClassicalAntiHero* ClassicalAntiHero: Bilbo starts out as a rather bumbling homebody who's really not cut out for fighting, sneaking, or hiking in the wilderness, and tends to be more of a burden on the company than anything. He evolves into a more heroic figure over time.

* BritishStuffiness: Bilbo is very much modelled on a country squire of Tolkien's era or slightly before: shackled by manners and a code of propriety from expressing himself (even when facing a home invasion by thirteen uninvited guests). Through the story, Bilbo slowly loses those inhibitions via his exposure to the forthright dwarves and learns to speak his mind but tempered with the tact and subtlety of his upbringing. In his conversation with Smaug he's able to amuse the dragon with his riddling speak and yet land a number of solid blows against Smaug's overpowering ego with the surgically precise application of blunt linguistic force.

* [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Our Werebears Are Different:]] Tolkein drew on Slavic myth, not necessarily the more recent forms of shape-shifter myth. Beorn's ability is under his conscious control, and he retains at least enough human mentality to rescue [[spoiler: Thorin]] after he falls in battle. The power seems to run in his bloodline, since some of the Beornings after his time share the ability.

* LightIsNotGood: Due to the fire inside him, he radiates light.

to:

* LastOfHisKind: Smaug is stated to be the last of the Great Dragons of Middle Earth, as opposed to “lesser dragons” such as those of the Withered Heath, which were implied to be much lesser in power than Smaug’s kind. Although dragonkind as a whole persisted, the race of the Great Dragons died with Smaug.

to:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He admits that all Smaug's victims deserve to be compensated. He and Thorin are clearly very different.
--> '''Dain''' ''(to Bilbo):'' Yet even though you were willing to lay aside all your claim, I should wish that the words of Thorin, of which he repented, should not prove true: that we should give you little. I would reward you most richly of all.
* RightfulKingReturns: As Thorin's closest surviving relative, he inherits the kingship of the Lonely Mountain after Thorin (and Fili, and Kili) perished.
