* BoomerangBigot: according to one version of his lineage proposed by Tolkien, he was of the same Elven tribe as the Noldor, but from the part that did not go to Valinor. Therefore, he was related to the Noldor.

* MagicMusic: Felagund was practically the archetypal ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' bard. Not the [[SpoonyBard spoony]] one, but the epic-level one.

* MagicMusic: Felagund was practically Finrod is a master of magical songs, and he and Sauron duel each other with magic songs in Tol-in-Gaurhoth. Unfortunately Sauron prevails and Finrod, Beren, and their companions are subdued and thrown into the archetypal ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' bard. Not dungeons. [[note]]Tolkien's use of music and verse in his vague references to "magic" become FridgeBrilliance when you know that the [[SpoonyBard spoony]] one, but Ainur ''sung the epic-level one.world into being''. So if music can create the world, it stands to reason that it can also change it -- especially given that it's always sung by either an Ainu (Sauron, Melian) or those taught by one (Felagund, Lúthien).[[/note]]



* ThePowerOfRock: Felagund and Sauron had a MagicMusic duel in Tol-in-Gaurhoth. Unfortunately, Sauron rocked harder and Felagund, Beren, and their companions were subdued and thrown into the dungeons.

* PsychicPowers: In addition to ThePowerOfRock, Finrod had the greatest "mind-reading" powers of any known elf. He got an automatic mental translation of everything mortal Men said to him, making linguistic barriers a snap to overcome, although this power didn't work in conversations with fellow elves. The book itself says that he "could read in the minds of Men such thoughts as they wished to reveal in speech, so that their words were easily interpreted."

* MagicMusic: Her music was magical. [[note]]Of course, in the Silmarillion the entire ''world'' was created by the singing of the Ainur, which means that ''all'' magic is music (Tom Bombadill can control Old Man Willow because "[Tom's] songs are stronger songs.")[[/note]]

* StarCrossedLovers: He was an immortal, she was a mortal. Even after death their fates were separated, as mortal souls leave the world altogether, journeying to an unknown destination, while the slain elves must remain in the Halls of Mandos for the rest of time.

* TogetherInDeath: Ironically, her HeroicSacrifice of giving up her immortality to enable Beren to return to life allowed them to finally be eternally together. As an elf, Lúthien would have been ultimately separated from him, as the souls of dead mortals pass out of the world, and the elves, even when their bodies die, must stay inside it until the end of time. But when she became a mortal, too; their souls would leave the world and face the unknown fate outside it together.

* 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 Third Age his son Celebrimbor found the Elven realm of Eregion, which lived in symbiotic relationship with the Dwarves of Khazad-dûm.

** 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]]) .
