* TheDreaded: Any hero with the Terrible Fury skill qualifies, but special mention goes to the Fell Beasts. Expect terrified cries of "'''IT'S A NAZGUL!!!'''" from your troops whenever one shows up. [[OneManArmy And with good reason.]]
** Unless you have a couple battalions of elite archer units (especially Rangers with Fire Arrows or Mirkwood Archers with Silverthorne Arrows) lying around, in which case you can proceed to laugh your ass off as they shoot down the Nazgul with only a few volleys.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Grond, the huge battering ram used by Mordor during the Minas Tirith siege (''BFME''). It is huge, slow, very resistant, and very powerful. When the gate of the city is destroyed, Grond will stay there and block most of the path in and out of the city, providing a kind of unintentional useful device to the defenders.

Grond can destroy only the door, it can not destroy the inner buildings, the walls, or even the annoying towers.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Hwaldar stop appearing after the sixth mission of the Angmar campaign without any explanation. Granted that the next mission takes place decades later, it is likely that he died from old age.

Added DiffLines:

* CompetitiveBalance: The factions in the second game are more or less well balanced, but it is averted in the first game, imbalanced towards the good side without shame (and yet, that makes playing and winning with the evil one so much fun).
** The good side has multiple options to heal: a ring power, heroes standing idle, aragorn's first power, fountains in the bases, etc. Healing does not exist in the evil side, except for heroes and orcs that did not took a tree.
** Medium-sized good bases have a light wall that forced the evil to bottleneck at the entry. Big bases are full fortifications with huge walls, giant towers and doors that get closed, which can't be accessed without siege weapons. All evil bases have just minor towers and no walls, and it is possible for the good side to beat the whole game without making a single siege weapon.
** The ring power allows the player to be at one point of the map, and deploy temporary forces somewhere else: elves, rohirim, eagles, ents, ghosts, etc. The evil side only has the balrog, which is the most expensive power and can only be used late in the game.
** Good side: loads and loads of heroes. Including Gandalf and Legolas, who can take whole armies on their own. Evil side: either Saruman or Lurtz for Isengard, none for Mordor (the Nazgul only shows up from time to time)

** The Oliphants. They look big and intimidating, but their actual performance in game does not begin to justify their cost of 1600 resources and 100 population.

** The Mouth of Sauron in BFME2 is a possible candidate as well, as he seems to be the master of Dol Guldur and is the main coordinator of Mordor's attacks in the North.
