** Remember, by that time, you have [[OneManArmy fought your way through a massive swarm of spiders, skeletons that are far nastier than the Goblins, entire packs of wolves and Wargs, vile creatures, and a Guardian several times your size on your own,]] faced down [[BigBad Smaug]] and survived, and are outfitted with a mithril coat. 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]]. [[FridgeLogic 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.]]

** 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.

* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Between Hamfast Gamgee and Bell Goodchild, who in Tolkien's writings married later on. Though they won't admit it to each other.



** Several lesser-known hobbits are shown or mentioned. Bilbo has pictures of his relatives on his wall and calls them by name. Others include Holman Greenhand, Sandyman, Hamfast Gamgee [[ChildhoodFriendRomance and]] Bell Goodchild.

* AdaptationExpansion: All add subplots involving puzzles or combat. There is even an entire plot revolving around Bilbo freeing a dwarven prisoner in Goblin-town after he is separated from the dwarves and ''before'' meeting Gollum.
* 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. For one, the Great Goblin is never seen or mentioned.
* AVillainNamedZrg: Two goblins are named Ugslap and Krugbit. There is also Bolg
