* 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.
