* NoManOfWomanBorn: ''The Lord of the Rings'' is co-TropeNamer with Creator/{{Shakespeare}}. In the case of ''The Lord of the Rings'', the Witch-King of Angmar is certain no man can defeat him. The ones who defeat him are ultimately a woman and a non-human, neither of which qualify as "man" in the ways the story uses the word.



* ProphecyTwist[=/=]NoManOfWomanBorn: The Witch-King of Angmar is confident that no man will slay him. He goes down to Eowyn and Merry (a woman and a hobbit).

** The Rohirrim have aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture, and have been compared to Vikings that rode horses rather than ships. Their Eotheod ancestors are based on the then-perception of Goths as a people of Germanic horse-warriors. The Rohirrim military is still this while their language has developed into the later Germanic language of Anglo-Saxon. The fact they had been a people of warrior-peasants whose entire culture ran around the horse and who lived on ''plains'' (as opposed to the hilly landscape of the British Isles) also makes them comparable 16th-19th century Russian {{Cossacks}}.

** The Elves are also generally presented as morally superior to everyone else, especially in ''Literature/LordOftheRings''. Their leaders are the only ones to hold on to their rings and stay uncorrupted (although it was due to their rings being forged by Celebrimbor alone), and no Elves are known to have served in Sauron's army. This gets subverted in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', where several villainous Elven characters are introduced, and a darker past of some of ''[=LotR=]'''s characters, such as Galadriel, becomes known.
