* OutsideContextVillain: It does not appear to have any ties to Sauron, or Saruman, or even the Balrog. It may just be one of those nasty things that lurk in the darker corners of Middle-Earth - another Smeagol or Shelob.

* FantasticRacism: Downplayed, but notably present: Treebeard appears to have Wizards in significant esteem (minus the ones who destroy the forest, that is), but he repeteadly calls both Gandalf and Saruman "young" in a paternalist way, as if he was older and wiser than them, when reality is that they are ''much'' older than himself.

** Ironically, his escapades come to a complete halt when he cant figure out how to open the West-gate of Moria (although, given that this is the same gate that defeated ''Sauron himself'' millennia before, this is more a testament to the [[HiddenBadass badassery of the gate]] than anything else). In fact, hes said to be starving, as all the food (along with all of the aforementioned Orcs) is in east Moria and then a certain Fellowship comes blundering in
