** 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.

* SuperiorSpecies: Subverted with the Elves. On the one hand, they are immune to old age and disease, and can only die of injury (and even then they eventually reincarnate). On the other hand, Tolkien presents the Men's mortality as a case of CursedWithAwesome, as the Elves are forever bound to Arda and will never be able to leave it, while Men can and do leave it when they die.

* SupernaturallyMarkedGrave: In particular, battlefields tend to become wastelands or marshes that last long after any sign of such events should. The same can happen where very evil beings die (such as the Witch-King of Angmar), and grass and flowers grow where good ones die.

* LiteraryAgentHypothesis: In-universe, the books are translations of the writings of Bilbo (who wrote ''The Hobbit: There and Back Again'' and translated ''The Silmarillion'' out of Elvish), Frodo and Sam (who wrote ''The Lord of the Rings''), and the Anglo-Saxon sailor Ælfwine (who stumbled upon Tol Eressëa in the Middle Ages and learned of the Elder Days from the Elves).[[note]]Ælfwine was written out of the published ''Silmarillion'' by Christopher Tolkien, but since he appears in JRRT's writings after ''[=LotR=]'', he apparently never abandoned the idea. Yet at the same time the ''The Silmarillion'' was also Bilbo's ''Translations from the Elvish''.[[/note]] Elvish authors such as Pengolodh are credited with particular texts about the Elder Days and linguistics.

* InhumanlyBeautifulRace: Elves in Tolkien's works are almost invariably described as being good-looking. The three best-looking females in Middle-earth are all Elves. The Valar also count, although they cheat, since their bodies are artificial and custom-made, so their beauty is limited only by ego and imagination.

* HeroicAmbidexterity: A posthumously published essays ("Eldarin Hands, Fingers and Numerals") reveals that Tolkien at least for a time entertained the idea that elves are ambidextrous (although this never actually showed in any of the Middle-earth books).
