* AntagonistTitle: Sauron is the Lord of the Rings. He is the one who created the Rings of Power, and the One Ring is trying to reunite with him throughout the books. It would be assumed that it is Frodo, which is even referenced when Pippin calls Frodo "Lord of the Ring," but Gandalf hushes him and tells him not to SpeakOfTheDevil.

* CurbStompCushion: While the Rohirrim's battle against the Haradrim outside Minas Tirith is nearly this, as the Mumakil the Haradrim ride are basically unstoppable juggernauts that impale, crush, and swat horsemen away with impunity, the Rohirrim give a good accounting of themselves, managing to bring down a number of Mumakil by taking advantage of their greater numbers and maneuverability, though it still takes the Army of the Dead to tip the scales in Middle-earth's favor.



* LeeroyJenkins: a number of Internet parodies compared this to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F0yUhLJUaY Aragorn's final charge]].

* LeeroyJenkins: a number of Internet parodies compared this to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F0yUhLJUaY Aragorn's final charge]]. The Rohirrim at Pellenor Fields also experience this; Theoden's DeathSeeker attitude has gotten to them so much that they'll ''charge a line of Mumakil'' without hesitation.

** And to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' and the Winkie Guards when Frodo, Sam and Gollum get to the rocky cliff above the Black Gate and witness the Easterners marching from stage left into the castle, unintelligible chant and all.

** There is quite a lot of gore if you watch closely, but the [[BlackBlood gushing blood]] is almost indistinguishable from grime and filth orcs are covered in.

**It's subtle, but some elves are also given Welsh accents. This in part reflects Tolkien's own feelings, as he saw great beauty and magic in Wales as a child.

* DeathGlare: The crowning one has to be the one Theoden gives Grima after being freed from Sauron. You can almost hear Grima [[PottyFailure piss himself]].

** Theoden's DeathGlare after he's freed from Saruman causes an great OhCrap face on Grima.

* ShoutOut: To the Ralph Bakshi animated ''Lord Of The Rings'' (the Nazgûl emerging from the tree as the four Hobbits hide in the roots), ''Shaka Zulu'' (the pre-Battle Of Helms Deep build-up), ''{{Gladiator}}'' (Aragorn's dazed horse ride to Helm's Deep; Frodo being carried by the Eagles), and possibly ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime''; "History became legend. [[LegendFadesToMyth Legend became myth]]"
