* The terrifying moment when Sam plunges from the cliffs overlooking the Black Gate, getting himself trapped up to his waist in the scree at the base and several of the Easterling soldiers arriving at the Black Gate noticing the disturbed rocks sliding down the cliff. Frodo throws his elven cloak over them, but it's quite terrifying in those moments that the only thing keeping him and Sam from a bunch of fanatics loyal to Sauron who would probably kill them without a second thought is a thin cloak and the hope the Easterlings don't investigate too closely.

* Extended version of the Battle at Pelennor Fields has Eowyn briefly fight [[MookLieutenant Gothmog]] just before her duel with [[TheDragon Witch-King]]. She wounds and seemingly kills him... and then, just after she kills Witch-King and is lying on the ground with her arm broken and too exhausted to stand up, Gothmog suddenly raises his head and starts slowly crawling towards her, screaming in rage. The look on Eowyn's face as she is trying frantically to escape from him and especially at the very end of the scene as she tries to grab the sword lying on the ground [[IfICanOnlyMove just out of her reach]] makes it painfully clear that she is ''absolutely terrfied''.

terrfied''.#
* When Frodo, Sam and Sméagol are passing Minas Morgul, Frodo suddenly starts walking towards the city as if he's in a trance. For once, it has Sam and Sméagol in perfect agreement that they have to stop him and drag him back, and when he comes back to himself, he says "They're calling me".

*** Speaking of RealLife, in the foreword to one of the editions Tolkien says that he has been asked or heard of many possible things the Ring can be an allegory for, all of which unintended as he does not like allegory (preferring applicability.) Now, if he ''did'' want the book to mirror actual events, he adds, the Ring would certainly have been used, Sauron not dead but enslaved (which, if you know what he did to Númenor, you know why it is a ''bad'' idea), his tower occupied instead of thrown down, and Saruman would have gone to Mordor, finding bits and pieces with which he would have ultimately made a Ring for himself, challenging the new ruler of Middle-earth and, worst of all, in the ensuing conflict there would have been no place for simple, peaceful Hobbits: both sides would have hated them and the Hobbit race would not have survived even as slaves.

** One of the worst things? He is a Hobbit. So he is a picture what could have become (and nearly happened anyway) to Frodo or Bilbo.

* Viewers who hadn't read the books were likely leaning back in their seats when the Balrog made its appearance.

appearance. Even before it does, while [[MassOhCrap all the Fellowship]] look unnerved as the Goblins scatter in terror and the sounds of the Balrog's approach grow louder, the look of terror on Gandalf and Legolas's facesis even worse. They both know full well what's coming, and that it's an enemy beyond any of them.

* The scene from ''Return of the King'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep0t0sK6MGw where we watch Sméagol slowly turning into Gollum]]. Though the FX mildly alleviates it, since it's really easy to tell it's just makeu- [[spoiler:OH GOSH HIS EYES GOT BIGGER!!!]]

** Also a bit of FridgeHorror. Sauron is a corrupted Maia, a being that has existed ''from the beginning of time''. '''''What could POSSIBLY be older than them?!?'''''
