** [[BattleCouple Horn and Nona]]. Horn is from Rohan, and something of an exile, while Nona is from Dunland. Both countries have a long and violent history together, with the Dunlendings believing that the land of Rohan was stolen from them. Each side hates the other, making Nona and Horn's relationship very difficult. [[spoiler:Also, Horn is canonically doomed to die at Pellenor Fields, though the game hasn't reached that point yet. It's also possible that "Horn" is the Rohirrim equivalent of "John", and it's some ''other'' Horn that dies there.]]

** There is a massive bridge south of Dol Amroth that has collapsed into the bay, barring progress in that direction. Since the Dol Amroth region is the most recent addition to the game, it's likely that this (and a couple of similar points, such as one just south of Tarlang's Crown, north of Dol Amroth, where an impossible-to-reach path is visible on the opposite side of a ravine) will be "repaired" at some point in the future.

* NonIndicativeTitle/TheUnfought: Naruhel, the Red Maid, is never encountered in the epic book of the same name (The Red Maid). The closest you get is to see Radagast blast Ivar Bloodhand with a single bolt of lightning, after which Ivar runs away with his tail between his legs.

** It's not played ''entirely'' straight; you can enter Garth Agarwen proper and face both Ivar and Naruhel. However, the trope still stands because you won't fight them during the epic quests they're supposed to be involved in; your fight against them only takes place outside the main storyline.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Sabert, the gate guard of Stangard. In the region's questline he is very hospitable and invites the player character into Stangard despite the uneasy tension caused by Sithric's arrival and subsequent power grab. In the Bingo Boffin questline, however, he is quick to refuse admission to Bingo and the player for the same reasons, although he soon comes around.
