* BeingEvilSucks: By the end of the First Age, the surviving sons of Feanor have realized that their oath has brought nothing but pain and suffering to the world. They still feel compelled to try stealing the Silmarils, and they're completely miserable about it.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaninglessVillainVictory: In the end, [[spoiler:Maedhros and Maglor]] are finally able to succeed at [[spoiler:getting the Silmarils]]. The only problem is that [[spoiler:they've done so many terrible things along the way that the Silmarils burn them at the touch]], which leads to [[spoiler:Maedhros throwing one Silmaril, and himself, into a volcano and Maglor to throw the other Silmaril into the ocean.]]

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They appear to be not undead, but rather a specific class of Maia, or perhaps mutated animals. Only one is named, Thuringwethil, Sauron's messenger, and only it's mentioned that she can take the form of a bat.

* RavenHairIvorySkin: Tolkien's wife Edith was a fair-skinned brunette, and apparently [[AuthorAppeal his own aesthetic preferences]] combined with what seem to be ancient Celtic standards of beauty[[labelnote:*]]most were probably dark-haired, not redheaded[[/labelnote]] to make this combination the most common for the really beautiful people. Elves, of course, are the most beautiful incarnates, very tall and ''always'' superhumanly healthy and physically perfect (unless they're maimed or something). And the great majority of elves have pale skin and black or dark brown hair. Some of them are especially emphasized for their dark-haired-pale-skinned beauty: Lúthien, the daughter of Melian the Maia and most beautiful woman in the world (and sort-of-avatar for Edith Tolkien), and her descendant Arwen in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.

** A male example would be Túrin Turambar, a brooding anti-hero with black hair and pale skin who's described as being more handsome than any other mortal man.



** The fall of Númenor, also known as Akallabêth or Atalantë, is {{Atlantis}}'s destruction [-IN MIDDLE-EARTH-]!



* ScrewDestiny: Túrin attempts to overpower the curse laid against him by Morgoth through sheer willpower, even going so far as to give himself the name Turambar, "Master of Fate." Unfortunately, it really doesn't work out that well for him.
