* AdaptationDistillation: Generally, the movie does a ''very'' nice job boiling down the novel into a good seventy minute movie, and some of the voicework is absolutely legendary (particularly Orson Bean as Bilbo, Brother Theodore as Gollum, and ''Richard Freaking Boone'' as Smaug).

* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Smaug is based on Norse dragons, which share the long skinny bodies of eastern dragons. He also has a very catlike head.

** In fact, Tolkien based his elves on the traditional myths about fairies, but by Tolkien's time, the term fairy had been corrupted to mean something unbearably twee, so Tolkien used the term elf instead, even though, as he well knew, traditional myths about elfs (yes, Tolkien also invented the use of "elves" and "dwarves," as opposed to "elfs" and "dwarfs," as the plurals of "elf" and "dwarf") were very different.

* UnexplainedAccent: Thranduil, the Elven King, speaks with a distinct German accent thanks to the voice talents of Creator/OttoPreminger.

* ChromosomeCasting: Just like in the book, there is not a single woman to be found in this story − not even a nameless, background character.

** Since the Arkenstone is never mentionned, Bilbo is sent in the mountain to steal... ''something'', anything (he opts for a small cup). How this was supposed to help the Dwarves retake Erebor is anyone's guess.

* {{Animesque}}: Virtually all the animators and one of the two character designers were Japanese, some of whom went to work for [[StudioGhibli Miyazaki]] so this may actually be more half-{{Anime}} than pseudo-Anime {{Animesque}}.

* AllThereInTheManual: Just like in the book, The Elvenking's real name, Thranduil, is never mentioned.



* BadassAdorable: Bilbo establishes himself as one when he killed GiantSpider for the first time, and named his blade Sting since then. Then he rescues the dwarves from other giant spiders, kills some more of the spiders, and rescues the dwarves ''again'' from the wood-elves.

Too bad he doesn't participate in the Battle of the Five Armies, though it's pretty accurate to the book as well.

* LimitedAnimation / SpecialEffectsFailure: The Battle of the Five Armies as seen from space. In the book, the scene cuts from Bilbo being knocked unconscious and missing the rest of the battle, to him waking up. The scene works here as an "and the battle continued for some time" passage, allowing us to pick up where Bilbo regains consciousness, unaware of what's happened or how things ended. It also cuts down on the on-screen gore.
