* TookALevelInJerkass: Thranduil, compared to his [[Literature/TheHobbit book counterpart]]. In the book, he's relatively isolationist, but he doesn't restrict his people's movements, he keeps ties to the nearby men, and he willingly comes to their aid. In the movie, he's [[EstablishingCharacterMoment first seen]] abandoning Erebor at Smaug's initial attack, and in ''Desolation of Smaug'' he orders his people not to leave the keep once the forest gets dangerous. In the book he is reluctant to fight the dwarves ('long will I tarry, ere I begin this war for gold'), while in the movie, he is eager to fight.

**Even Radagast gets in on the action; in the first film he marches into Dol Guldur on his own, takes on one of the Ringwraiths single-handed and gets out without a scratch.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The Arkenstone, the chiefest item amongst the regalia of the Kings Under the Mountain, and the recovery of which is one of the Company's main goals. It's clearly more than just a precious stone, but it's not clear whether it's actually magical, magic being exceptionally rare in Middle-Earth. Also, in the books, the Arkenstone was cut and shaped by the Dwarves to enhance its own "inner light," but the stone in the movie is clearly uncut, only polished, meaning that whatever illuminates from within is probably stronger in the movies than in the books.

** It doesn't help when [[spoiler:the Necromancer/Sauron destroys Gandalf's original staff in ''The Desolation of Smaug''.]] Though the Extended Edition of the [[Battle of the Five Armies]] adds a scene where Radagast gives his staff to Gandalf before the eponymous battle.

** PrequelInTheLostAge: Downplayed. While it's still taking place at the end of the Third Age, it is before Sauron manages to cause enough unrest to make the world the dark place full of fear we see in LOTR. This is especially evident from the moments when Bilbo puts on the Ring and the spirit world is shown to be more vibrant.
