* LargeAndInCharge: Much larger than the orcs and trolls in Moria, and they seem to be almost as afraid of him as the Fellowship is.

* LargeAndInCharge: Much larger Possibly. The descriptions are vague and can be interpreted differently. On one hand, its wings are described as spreading "wall to wall" in a great chamber. On the other hand, he's also described as "like a great shadow, in the middle of which was a dark form, of man-shape maybe, yet greater." He is certainly much more imposing than the orcs and trolls in Moria, and they seem to be almost as afraid of him as the Fellowship is.[[note]]In the Silmarillion, Balrogs are approximately two times man height, but Tolkien reimaged them later, so he might have changed their size as well by the time he wrote The Lord of the Rings[[/note]]

* AlmightyIdiot: It's telling that smuggling Hobbits into Mordor with only nine persons who barely worked together is considered better odds than convincing Bombadil to do something, even keeping the One Ring he is immune to until they sort things out.

%%* {{Badass}}: Usually overshadowed by the other hobbits, but Frodo has quite a few badass moments earlier on in the book. None of these survived the transition to film.



* {{Badass}}: By far the most powerful of the Fellowship.



* {{Badass}}: One of the greatest warriors of the third age.



* {{Badass}}: He survives the Battle of the Pelennor Fields unscathed.



* {{Badass}}: Elrond sends him out alone against the Ringwraiths to escort Frodo, Aragorn and the other Hobbits. He succeeds and drives the Ringwraiths into the Bruinen, where their horses are killed and they are forced to retreat back to Sauron.
** He defeated the Witch-King previously as well. He commanded Rivendell's forces in the Battle of Fornost and drove the Witch-King away where he didn't trouble Middle-Earth for another 1000 years.
** He killed a Balrog previously when defending the refugees of Gondolin, [[TakingYouWithMe At the cost of his own life]] after having killed many orcs.

* LadyAndKnight: He essentially becomes Galadriel's knight, since she gives him a type of favour in the shape of three of her hairs, he's ready to defend her honour, and he nearly fights a duel with Éomer when he insults her.

* VillainOfAnotherStory: This horror has nothing to do with Sauron and it was bringing ruin to Middle Earth long before he entered the picture. It served under Morgoth, destroyed the Dwarven kingdom of Moria, and ended the line of Durin kings. As a Maiar, the Balrog could have easily been a BigBad in its own right, but the Fellowship run into it purely out of bad luck.

* NothingIsScarier: The full capabilities of the Ring are never really explained or understood, to the characters or the reader. This is because it, like its creator Sauron, are not truly of Middle Earth: their nature [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow is beyond mortal comprehension]]. This becomes all the more scary as the Ring's power and sentience grows as it nears its source, and its malignant influence begins to find footholds in Frodo's mind.

* ElementalPowers: Fire, [[spoiler:possibly thanks to Narya, The Ring of Fire.]]
** Subverted in that it generally refers to fire in the spiritual sense, rather than the literal sense (although he is capable of the latter if he has no other choice). He is a servant of the ''Secret Fire'' which is the Middle Earth equivalent of the Holy Spirit. Likewise, the purpose of [[spoiler: Narya, the Ring of Fire is not the generation of the literal kind, but the kindling of the fire of the spirit, which spiritually and emotionally supports Gandalf on his centuries-long quest to bring about Sauron's downfall.]]
