** One of the minor characters is an elf named [[NamesTheSame Elmo]]. [[Series/SesameStreet We'll let that one sink in]].

* JerkassHasAPoint: Yes -- Feanor's actions both before and after Ungoliant's rampage across Valinor were inexcusable. And yet he was the only one to point out one very AwfulTruth -- the Valar had failed in their vigilance. They were at best inept in keeping both Morgoth and Ungoliant out of their lands -- never mind the fact that it was [[GoodCannotComprehendEvil Manwe who had allowed Morgoth to go free in the first place]].

** And then there's Melkor/Mairon, affectionately named Angbang. That Melkor "seduced" Mairon to evil helps.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Eöl, being one of the Dark Elves who chose to remain behind in Middle-Earth rather than sail West to the Valar, hated Fëanor and the Noldor who fled Valinor and invaded Middle-Earth, and in doing so killed Elves of Eöl's kin. A lot of the Noldor, let's face it, are blatantly racist, xenophobic and dismissive of most of the races who either stayed behind or awoke after they left for Valinor. Thus, Eöl refuses to cooperate with Gondolin or the other Noldor states, and allies with the Dwarves and (presumably) the Green and other Dark Elves.

A Let's face it; a lot of the Noldor, let's face it, Noldor are blatantly racist, xenophobic and dismissive of most pretty much all of the races who either stayed behind in Middle-Earth or awoke after they the majority of the Elves left for Valinor.

** To a lesser extent, King Azaghâl of the Dwarves is quite famous for his epic showdown against Glaurung the Deceiver during the Battle of Unnumbered Tears. This despite the fact that showdown is essentially the extent of the character's appearance.


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: Azaghâl shows up in exactly one scene of the Silmarilion: during the Battle of Unnumbered Tears. And yet, his role *(essentially saving Noldor from being wiped off the map by holding off ''an army of dragons'') is quite memorable.

** And on the other side, Melian/Galadriel, which tends to be written as a TeacherStudentRomance. ** Glorfindel/Ecthelion is quite popular on Tumblr as well, mostly in the form of fanart.
** Túrin and Beleg also have a following. Beleg's devotion, Túrin long lasting HeroicBSOD and heartbreak, and the fact that there's canonically three kisses between them, (though two of those are after [[spoiler: Beleg's death]]), doesn't really do much to dissuade people.

** Maeglin gets it too, though not as much.

** Maeglin gets it too, though not as much. Even though he betrayed his city to Morgoth, lusted after his cousin, and tried to murder her seven-year old son.

** StoicWoobie: Maedhros

** StoicWoobie: Maedhros


Maedhros. Being tortured at the hands of Morgoth and Sauron, losing a hand, most of his family (including Fingon, who meant a lot to him), and being the ''only'' known Elf to ever commit suicide qualifies him for woobie status. Letting absolutely ''nothing'' of this show through (aside from a few instances) got him the stoic part.
