* NakedOnArrival: Túrin's first meeting with his LoveInterest Níniel is of her lying naked on the grave of the elf who had an unrequited crush on him. He takes this as a sign and later they get married. [[spoiler:It's a pity then that she's actually his long-lost sister Niënor]].

''The Children of Húrin'' is one of Tolkien's darker works and deals more with darker subject matter, and is less well-known than ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. There is no happy ending here. ''The Children of Húrin'' is much closer in tone to the likes of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', and overturns the common conception of Tolkien as a writer of BlackAndWhiteMorality.

* DarkFantasy: Could have been the UrExample, if only Creator/JRRTolkien wouldn't hold it in DevelopmentHell so long (the first version of the story was written about 1917, and a version similar to this book's text was first published in 1980 as part of ''Unfinished Tales'').

''The Children of Húrin'' is one of Tolkien's darker works and deals more starkly with darker subject matter, and is less well-known than ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. Fundamentally a Greek tragedy, there is no happy ending here.
