** Another unpublished essay mentions that Men have a prophecy hinting strongly at the coming of Christ ("the only way Eru could cure the world of Morgoth's poison is to enter it himself") but Tolkien dropped it because he was afraid it was turning into "a parody of Christianity". There is, however, the concept of the Dagor Dagorath, where Morgoth will break free from his prison and a massive war, the ''final'' war, will ensue to destroy him permanently before Eru remakes the world as it once was, for all to dwell in(aka [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Judgment The Last Judgement]]) .

Added DiffLines:

* ObliviousToLove: Is completely floored as to why Nellas would watch and follow him around. Beleg appears incredulous that he can't figure it out.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: He loved both his parents, but it was the death of his father that drove him over the DespairEventHorizon: "For his father was dearer to him than the Light of Valinor or the peerless work of his hands; and who among sons, of Elves or of Men, have held their fathers of greater worth?"

Added DiffLines:

* ForcedSleep: She had the ability to cast almost any kind of creature into an enchanted sleep, including Elf guards, the giant wolf Carcharoth, Sauron (very briefly), and ''Morgoth and his entire court''.

* GoneHorriblyRight: His destruction of N&ucaute;menór went exactly as planned--problem was, he was still on that continent when it went down and his fair form went with it. He could never appear beautiful after that.

* SquishyWizard: Zig-zagged. He was physically unimpressive next to most Maiar when not {{One Winged Angel}}ed up, but ''as'' a Maia, he was still well beyond the overwhelming majority of Elves and Men. He still only takes the field himself a handful of times, and always loses - though that speaks as much to the level of {{badass}} of his adversaries as anything.

* {{Badass}}: Yes! He managed to drive several of the hosts of the Valar away.



* {{Badass}}: Oh, yes. He fought ''multiple'' Balrogs at once, including Gothmog, and granted they mortally wounded him -- but he still didn't die until after his army had chased them away.



* {{Badass}}: His fortress at Himring was the only part of the northern defenses that didn't fall during the Dagor Bragollach. The orcs ran away from him in terror. He also survived to the end of the first age, a feat in itself.



* {{Badass}}: He fought Melkor, injuring his face seven times (injuries that caused Morgoth constant pain from then on), slashing his foot, and finally crippling him, before being slain. Hell, the only reason Morgoth managed to kill him was because he got ''tired''.

* {{Badass}}: Going toe-to-toe with a Balrog cemented his status as a {{Badass}}.



* {{Badass}}: Breaking his chains, and defeating a werewolf in unarmed combat.



* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Gwindor, in-universe. Nargothrond started to see him like this when compared to Túrin, even if he did some undeniably {{Badass}} things in the past. The main reason he seemed non-{{Badass}} was due to his [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]], his weakened and maimed appearance after years of torture and slavery, and the fact that he had a much more pragmatic outlook on Nargothrond's chances against Morgoth. Gwindor favored staying in hiding and striking from the shadows. Túrin wanted open battle, and if defeat was inevitable if they fought openly, he would prefer to go down in a blaze of glory. His words and martial prowess swayed the hearts of the people of Nargothrond, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero and thus sealed their doom]].

* BadassPrincess: While not an ActionGirl in the strictest sense, her deeds and courage more than cement her as a {{Badass}}.

* BullyingADragon: Yes, pick on [[{{Badass}} Túrin]] and insult his ancestry. No way he'll [[BerserkButton flip out]] and physically assault you.

* {{Badass}}: He managed to sneak into Armenelos, get a sapling of the White Tree of Númenor, and when discovered, fought his way out.



* {{Badass}}: Fighting and beating werewolves and, you know, ''Sauron''.
