* InexplicableTreasureChests: This game has treasure chests everywhere, including part way up trees in Mirkwood. They are colour-coded as wooden, blue, silver, or gold. Unlocking them is a minigame involving timing with moving parts, where failure can lead to injury or poisoning.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: The last level has Bilbo warned several times about the dangers of battle, yet he can kill the goblins effortlessly. The one exception is a quest in which he must rescue some of the dwarves from them. It's more of a case of DudeWheresMyRespect from the point of view of the player until you realize that nobody (save possibly Gandalf) knows the [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal exact extent of your exploits]]. From their perspective, he's a short guy from a peaceful agrarian community consisting of other short guys who signed on as a burglar in a party with actual combat veterans, AND has successfully infiltrated a community of Elves and busted out several Dwarves from the prison cells undetected. Those are abilities the higher-ups have no choice but to grudgingly respect, so naturally, they'll pick him to get from Point A to Point B because that message needs to be delivered as quickly as possible.

* AdaptationalBadass: Bilbo not only fights the giant spiders, but becomes a warrior who can take on bosses such as a giant armadillo-like creature and even a Wight Lord whose minions appear to be Nazgûl. As well, he kills countless orcs, some of which are much larger than him. Bilbo can also use his walking stick to pole vault and send enemies flying.

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: The dwarves' capture by the goblins and Gollum's realisation of what Bilbo has in his pocket are only briefly looked over in cutscenes, making it hard to tell what's going on.



** In one of the trailers:
--> '''Smaug:''' I will show you who is the true king under ''this'' mountain!

--> '''Balfor:''' I am grateful for your service, but freeing me would take the service of a hundred Dwarves. Or a thousand elves.

** Balfor insults a goblin, calling him a "filthy spawn of an elf". This alludes to a theory about the origin of orcs.
* NamedByTheAdaptation:
** Several citizens of Lake-town refer to the Master as "Calamar".
** Sandyman is given the name Carl.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: In the Game Boy Advance version. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQiQQoq_aO0 This]] is the Magic Music Box in The Elvenking's Castle. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt3ExqdpYCQ This]] is "Singing Mountain" from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''. Any questions?
** Also in the [=GBA=] version, some have accused the [=BGM=] of Hobbiton of being similar to "Waltz To The Moon" from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', though this hasn't been verified.

** FridgeHorror sets in if you've read the book and know [[CurbStompBattle what happened to the Goblins]] after Bilbo got knocked out. That Goblin probably wasn't spared.

* SuperDrowningSkills: If Bilbo is in water and his feet aren't touching the ground he will die instantly. Justified as Tolkien wrote that most Hobbits never swim. As obstacles, there are [[FakeDifficulty waterfalls, rivers, cataracts, whirlpools, and the like.]]

* BossInMooksClothing: Ugslap is a downplayed version of this trope - he is more agile and has more HP.



* EliteMook:
** The goblins guarding Balfor's cell, although they can be fought later on in the game.
** Ugslap looks like a typical larger goblin, but he is more agile and has more HP.



* HelpfulMook: The final level has a rather intimidating looking orc hidden behind a wall. If you walk up to him, he will tell you that he is tired of the fighting, and won't hurt you (you can't hurt him either). He also has a handy supply of healing mushrooms scattered all around him. Another one makes hardly any attempt to kill you, though you can kill him, and just yells threats.

* HarmlessVillain: Krugbit. He spends more time yelling threats then trying to kill you.
