* WasOnceAMan: The origin that made it into the books is that they were once elves. This is only one possibility, though, and [[FlipFlopOfGod it kept changing right up until Tolkien's death]] -- he didn't like the implications that had for their eternal souls, even though he did not want evil to be capable of independent creation, which would have conflicted with his Christianity.

* BrownEyes: He is arguably the most down to earth and stable member in an adventuring party full of blue-eyed/grey-eyed individuals with divine lineage and/or royal titles.

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreFlawed: Boromir briefly mentions the weakness of men to Aragorn and perhaps embodies it best. At least until...
** HumansAreSpecial: ...he then embodies the best in men by leaping in to save Merry and Pippin from a band of orcs.

%%* CanonForeigner* CanonForeigner: He has no ''direct'' counterpart in the novels, though a few reviewers made a bit too much of this: he's not so much a "major new character", as that they basically took one of the "generic Orc chieftains" from the novels and bothered to give him a name.

Added DiffLines:

* StupidEvil: Averted, given that he's an Orc general. Meant to show how Mordor's Orcs are a better organized fighting force than they were during the Prologue, when they just swarmed across the battlefield like a feral mob and got mowed down by more organized enemies. Gothmog doesn't so much have brilliant tactics but "common sense" - i.e. when facing a cavalry charge, he bellows at his troops to form ranks, "pikes in front, archers behind!" This is still a ''drastic'' force multiplier for the Orc army, given that their previous strategy was "blindly rush at an oncoming cavalry charge until we trip them up with piles of our own dead".

* {{Badass}}: The entire Fellowship in their own ways, although they all rack up a body count in one form or another. Be it Orcs, Goblins, Trolls, or Demon spiders.



* {{Badass}}: Saves Gandalf from an Uruk at the Battle of Pelennor Fields, and later leads the hobbits in the Scouring of the Shire against Sharkey's men in the decisive Battle of Bywater.



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

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



* {{Badass}}: In the first film, he manages to drive 4 Nazgûl away from Weathertop, while most other pepople hide in fear from a single one. And that's just one of his feats.



* {{Badass}}: Of the Fellowship, Legolas arguably racks up the highest body count.
** SubmissiveBadass: Not counting Gandalf, Legolas is easily the strongest and most capable fighter in the Fellowship. He's also devoted to Aragorn and always defers to his leadership.

* {{Badass}}: A BoisterousBruiser capable of matching [[TheAce Legolas]] in their killing competition.
** BackToBackBadasses: With Aragorn, during the Battle of Helm's Deep fighting the Uruk-hai.
** BadassBeard: He's a dwarf and the son of Glóin; of course he's got one. And as an added bonus, he's also a prominent member of the Longbeards, which is the dwarven clan that's infamous for producing long, impressive beards.
