* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: So much so that Fëanor received something of a [[MemeticBadass Memetic]] status in-universe. Later generations assume that he knew Khuzdul, etc. just because, well, ''Fëanor''.\
MurderIsTheBestSolution: You hear rumours that your half-brother wants to usurp your place as the heir and your father's favourite? Wear armor and threaten him with your sword in front of the whole court. [[BigBad Morgoth]] kills your father, steals your precious Silmarils and flees to the Middle-Earth? Start the rebellion with your fellow Noldor against him and his "accomplices", The Valar. The Teleri don't want to give your army their ships, which are needed to cross the sea betweeen Valinor and Middle-Earth? Massacre them! The ships are only enough to carry the part of your army that is loyal exclusively to you? Cross the sea, leave other part of the army, lead by your aforementioned half-brother, and burn the ships! The enemy flees before your army to their fortress? Chase them! Kill them all! You lie dying of your wounds? Order your sons to fulfill the Oath you gave to get the Silmarils back no matter the cost.

* ApeShallNotKillApe: The Valar generally refrain from killing Elves, Men or Dwarves. When the Men of Numenor openly waged war against the Valar, they still would not raise a hand against them, forcing Illuvatar to directly intervene and defeat (non-lethally) the Numenoreans.

Theologically, they are much closer to Valar, based by Tolkien on Christian angels.archangels, serve as its effective rulers.

* PlayingWithFire / AnIcePerson: ''Both''. While most of the Valar have various elemental attributes such as Manwë's affinity with the air and Ulmo's with the sea, Melkor's power rests in the unrestrained extremes of heat and cold. Which explains why Thangorodrim was both GrimUpNorth and a VolcanoLair.

** HeelFaceTurn: Subverted at the end of the First Age, as even before his backsliding it was more of a case of fear and pragmatism than any genuine guilt.
* FallenAngel: It might be more fitting to call him one of these, given the lesser status of the Maia as compared to the Valar.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Mentioned to have fair hair in one of the older versions. Part of the fandom ignore this as outdated, because golden hair is considered to be the signature mark of the good House of Finarfin. Cue to [[WildMassGuessing WMG]] of how he got his hair. Most fanartists illustrate him as a blond, or even albino.

** "Elbereth Gilthoniel" is basically the Elvish "Hail Mary," which Tolkien probably was aware of. The Dwarves worshipped their creator Aulë whom they called "Mahal." The Rohirrim worshipped Oromë, one of the Valar, whom they called "Bema." This is AllInTheManual.

Added DiffLines:

* MultipleChoicePast: Tolkien flip-flopped on what exactly she was; she might've been a creature of the outer darkness, or she might've been a FallenAngel like Sauron.

* {{Archenemy}}: Of Turin, whose life he went out of his way to ruin on orders from Melkor. Turin returned Glaurung's loathing and dedicated much of his life to ridding the world of the Great Worm.



* GoOutWithASmile: Glaurung's last act is to laugh in Nienor's face as he reveals the truth about her marriage to her.
* TheHeavy: Melkor's in back of him, but it's Glaurung who drives the plot of ''The Children of Hurin''.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: He's by no means a weakiling, see BadassNormal above. It's just he had to stand against [[SatanicArchetype Morgoth]], and [[TheDragon Sauron]], who are both PhysicalGods, other great threats, and his bride (and later wife) is a BadassPrincess whose mother is an [[OurangelsAreDifferent angel]] and her father is one of the greatest kings of elves. {{Determinator He doesn't quit}}, though.
