* AdaptationExpansion: The original book ''Literature/TheHobbit'' is shorter than any of the three parts of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', but was made into another trilogy of films. Many of the additions are taken from the Appendices of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', which was not strictly in ''The Hobbit'' but alluded to. In particular, it explains what Gandalf is up to while not with Thorin's company, the entire history of the loss of Erebor and Battle of Moria are detailed and more characterization is given to Bard. Others were original additions created explicitly for the films, such as the entirety of the subplot of Azog's pursuit of Thorin's company (in the books' backstory, Azog had already been slain by Dáin Ironfoot at the Battle of Azanulbizar), separating the company at Esgaroth, and the addition of the female Elf, Tauriel, and her LoveTriangle with Legolas and Kíli. While the additions of content from Tolkien's legendarium has generally been accepted favorably, the other changes to the plot have proven a BaseBreaker.

* CleopatraNose: Most of the dwarves have typically large noses. Balin's nose in particular is enormous, though it suits him well.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: The younger Bolg had long blond hair, as did the jailer at Dol Guldur.
** While not evil, the blond Thanduil arguably acted like a jerk towards the exiled Dwarves.
** The corrupt Mayor of Laketown is another example.

* 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.
