* DivineBirds: The TopGod Manwë is associated with air and sometimes sends birds with tidings, particularly eagles. In ''Literature/TheHobbit'', the eagles are independent yet prefer the forces of good over evil, whereas in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' they are specifically ordered to help Gandalf and appear as DivineIntervention in the climax to help the army of Men and to rescue Frodo and Sam from Mount Doom.

* DearNegativeReader: In his introduction to the second edition of ''The Lord of the Rings'':
--> “Some who have read the book, [[TakeThatCritics or at any rate have reviewed it]], have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible, and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer.”



* FranchiseZombie: As explained above, ''The Lord of the Rings'' came into existence only because the publishers wanted a sequel for the immensely popular ''Hobbit'' while Tolkien was more interested in working on his legendarium. Tolkien avoided the negative effects of this trope by incorporating both ''LOTR'' and ''The Hobbit'' into his mythos that was part of the (then unpublished) ''Silmarillion''.



* IHaveManyNames: Rather common, due, among other things, to: 1) having names and their translations in various languages, 2) people (and places/things) gaining names and ephitets due to their archievements/history, and more so if they travel and gain lots more names in different places, 3) Elves being an especially language-and-name-loving people and thus being generous with names, e.g. Elven custom gifting them with several names.

* PyrrhicVictory: Common, as part Tolkein's belief that WarIsHell. You may be able to defend yourself through war, and may even defeat your enemy, but it will always come at very high cost. A few specific examples:

** The Seven Rings given to the Dwarves qualify to a lesser extent, causing them to fall to {{Greed}}. As for the Three Rings made by the Elves, they were ''supposed'' to be this, but Elves and Maiar are too [[IncorruptiblePurePureness pure]] to fall to any [[TheCorruption corruption]] less than the One Ring.

As for the Three Rings Rings, which were made by without Sauron's direct influence, they're not without danger, but only become a true example of the Elves, they were ''supposed'' to be this, but Elves and Maiar are too [[IncorruptiblePurePureness pure]] to fall to any [[TheCorruption corruption]] less than trope if subjugated under the One Ring.Ring.

The term '''Legendarium''' is used as a collective term for all the works of '''Creator/JRRTolkien''' set in the world of '''Arda/Middle-earth'''[[note]]spelt with hyphen and lowercase e[[/note]]. (To be exact, Middle-earth is a continent in the world Arda, but the former is also commonly used to refer to the whole universe.)
