* NoiselessWalker: They pride themselves on being able to walk very quietly when they want to. Bilbo once sneaked up on trolls to steal a purse, and would have succeeded if the purse didn't squeak.

Orc-hood is almost as much a state of mind as it is genetic (cf. Tolkien's statement that "We were all orcs in the Great War." re: WorldWarOne). Some fans speculate that if an orc stopped being evil, it would no longer be an orc, and become an elf.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: It doesn't come up more than a few times in the book, but all hobbits love mushrooms with a passion completely incomprehensible to outsiders.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Basically a racial trait. Hobbits in general are bucolic hedonists and tend to disdain nasty business like wars and adventures. However, those who push hobbits into conflict tend to find out that the pudgy little gardeners are seriously tough when they put their minds to it.

Immortal beings of unearthly beauty. Elves were "the Firstborn" -- an older race than Men, more powerful, more learned, more beautiful, and (from a mortal point of view) more "magical." They are not TheFairFolk, though, for they are no more ethereal or amoral then Men. Elves are nearly immortal -- they live forever without aging, and while their bodies can be killed, their spirits can never leave the world until the end of time.

The "Shepherds of the Trees". The most physically impressive of the Free Peoples, but also the fewest in number. Ents are giants with vast physical strength who closely resemble the trees they protect. By the end of the Third Age, there are only a couple dozen Ents left, which isn't helped by the fact that the females (known as Entwives) have apparently disappeared, thus no Entings (Ent children) can be born. Relegated to the ancient Forest of Fangorn, they have grown world-weary and sleepy. Treebeard is the oldest remaining Ent and their leader.

* PowerCorrupts: Out of the five, Gandalf is the only one who we know saw through his mission to the end, and he has a decisive role in the winning of the War of the Ring. Saruman, the most powerful wizard and their leader, ends up turning to evil, and the other three may have simply forsaken their missions.
** Although other material by Tolkien claims the two Blue Wizards were causing rebellions against Sauron in lands supplying his troops.

* LongLived: Longer lived than Men, but not nearly as much as Dwarves or Elves. They are considered adults at 33, enter middle age around 50, and can expect to live to 100, with the longest-lived hobbits reaching about 130.

* IHaveManyNames: Cue Gandalf:
-->'''Gandalf:''' Many are my names in many countries: Mithrandir among the Elves, Tharkûn to the Dwarves; Olórin I was in my youth in the West that is forgotten, in the South Incánus, in the North Gandalf; to the East I go not.
