* DidntThinkThisThrough: During the seige of Helm's Deep, the Uruk-Hai use Saruman's newly-created explosives to blow up the wall in order to make a breach. However, they were caught off-guard by the blast almost as much as the defenders were. The Uruks near the grate are blown up along with the ones already on the wall and countless more are crushed beneath massive chunks of falling rubble that were blown sky high by the blast. After the dust settles, instead of immediately storming through the breach, they stand there staring at it, clearly not realizing that Saruman's new weapons would be ''that'' powerful. Of course, it's probably likely that Saruman just didn't bother to inform them of its destructive power because he didn't care, given that WeHaveReserves was in full effect for the Uruks.

* OpeningMonologue: Galadriel's now iconic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhjDnrw34QA opening monologue]] of the trilogy, describing the forging of the [[RingOfPower Rings Of Power]], the Battle of the Last Alliance, Sauron's downfall and the One Ring being lost and forgotten, basically laying the groundwork for the beginning of the main story. The page quote at the top is just part of it. She speaks some [[ConLang Elvish (Sindarin)]] at the beginning of the monologue. -->"(''I amar prestar aen.'') The world is changed. (''Han matho ne nen.'') I feel it in the water. (''Han mathon ned cae.'') I feel it in the earth. (''A han noston ned gwilith.'') I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it."

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Gandalf, Saruman, Sauron, and the Balrog are Maiar, the Middle-Earth equivalent of angels. The latter two were corrupted by Morgoth during the First Age, while the former two were sent to Middle-Earth in the Third Age to help defeat Sauron.

** The "Lothlórien" theme for the Elves (or at least Galadriel's Elves) is first heard as an ethereal, dreamy piece with generous amounts of CherubicChoir and One-WomanWail. In the second movie, though, it gets transformed into a [[{{Badass}} badass]] military march during the scene where the Elven army comes to the rescue at the Battle of Helm's Deep.

* CourtlyLove: Gimli to the Lady Galadriel.

* TheDulcineaEffect: Gimli goes from describing Galadriel as a wicked sorceress to pledging himself as her KnightInShiningArmor within days of meeting her.

** The first glimpse of the Lady Galadriel (other than the flash of her eyes that Frodo sees when he hears her voice in his mind) is her descending the stairs in Caras Galadhon with Celeborn in a blinding, majestic aura of white light. 'The Lady of Light', indeed!

* FantasticLightSource: Gandalf's staff and Galadriel's phial that contains liquid starlight and helps Frodo and Sam escape Shelob's lair.

* LegendFadesToMyth: According to the prologue, this is why things came to be as they were at the end of the Third Age: people forgot about past threats, and grew complacent. Sauron exploited that.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the books and Bakshi film, Boromir tries to force Frodo to give him the ring, and only gives a MyGodWhatHaveIDone ''after'' Frodo flees. In the film, Boromir apologizes to Frodo before being attacked by Orcs, removing any of the drama of his HeelRealization about his critical blunder, and his death is no longer about being TheAtoner and DeathByRedemption.
