* AscendedExtra: Not exactly an extra, but for a character who wasn't well known outside hardcore Tolkien fandom, [[VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor getting his own AAA video game]] is pretty impressive.

* SingleMindedTwins: Amrod and Amras both looked and behaved very similarily and may have been mistaken for each other as children. However, as the twins matured, Amras' hair grew darker and others were finally able to tell them apart.

* InterspeciesFriendship: Curufin was one of the very few elves to find the Dwarves fascinating and to befriend them. Tolkien mentioned he was the only Elven scholar who studied Khuzdul, the language of the Dwarves, which the Elves usually found unpleasant. Curufin also carried a [[AbsurdlySharpBlade special knife]] gifted to him by the Dwarves. Later on in the Second Age his son Celebrimbor found the Elven realm of Eregion, which lived in symbiotic relationship with the Dwarves of Khazad-dûm.

* VillainDecay: Classic example, beginning his rebellion more powerful than every Valar combined and indeed the most powerful being in existence, second only to Eru himself; he ended his rebellion still frighteningly powerful, but immensely weaker than before as he suffused his energy into Arda itself

* VillainsWantMercy: Most definitely [[AintTooProudToBeg not too proud to beg]], Morgoth swallows his pride and makes false pleads for mercy in the aftermath of both his defeats. The first time he gets it. The second time he's less fortunate.

* FallenAngel: The final text of ''The Silmarillion'' labels her as probably one more of the Maiar seduced by Melkor, just like the Balrogs or Sauron himself. This all DependingOnTheWriter, of course, because the first drafts told she was some kind of avatar of darkness unrelated to the Ainur.

Eru (the One), also called Ilúvatar (All-Father), is the monotheistic God of Tolkien's universe who created the Ainur (Holy Ones), powerful angelic spirits. The Ainur are composed of the Valar, who helped Eru "sing" the world into existence, and the Maiar, who faithfully serve the Valar. He also created his Children, the Elves and Men, but not Dwarves, they were... not part of the plan originally.

The Powers of the World. The most powerful of the angelic spirits created by Eru to effect and oversee his creation; they occupy a role somewhere between archangels and polytheistic gods. Manwë is their leader; he is the King of Arda (the world), under Eru, and lord of the airs. There were originally fifteen Valar, but Melkor was cast from their number. They are served by an unspecified number of Maiar (roughly angels or demigods). They dwell in Valinor (the Land of the Gods) in the utter west.

* ApeShallNotKillApe: The Valar generally refrain from killing Elves, Men or Dwarves (all being creations hallowed and blessed by Eru). 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 the Numenoreans.
