* HeroicWillpower: [[GenreSavvy Although he knows better then to even consider it]], when Frodo flat out offers the ring to him, Aragorn manages to fight it's power to tell Frodo not to. Considering how afraid he is of it's power, it's telling.

* GenreSavvy: To an extent, as he knew Théoden would flee to Helm's Deep with the people of Rohan.

* 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

to:

%%* 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".
