* 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.



* TheHerosJourney: Played completely straight.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: Gandalf tells Bilbo that his story is only beginning, just as the final shot of the film focuses on the One Ring glinting over the mantelpiece. This film was followed up in 1980 with ''WesternAnimation/TheReturnOfTheKing'', which skips the first two books of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.

* 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 Boone'' as Smaug). The only truly noticeable plot points left out are Beorn and the Arkenstone.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptedOut: The stone giants, the Master of Laketown, Roäc the raven, Bolg, and, most notably, Beorn are omitted. Dáin is mentioned but does not appear. Also, the Arkenstone is omitted, and Gandalf never mentions the Necromancer.

Added DiffLines:

* TimeCompressionMontage: A variation. When Bilbo and Gollum are riddling, we only hear one riddle from each of them, and then the camera pans away, and all we see are rocks and the tunnels in the mountain, while we hear a slightly-creepy, sung version of a third riddle, after which we return to the game, and Gollum asks his "Time" riddle. The pan-away and song represent an extended period of time passing while they trade riddles back and forth, only returning once things get interesting again.
