!!Examples:

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: The characters attempt to get rid of the urple with something called Wormtongue's Wonder Wash. Surprisingly, it works.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: "Sauron would going to roast her for breakfast. He would make her grow long pointy nails. He would flunk her." (OK, the latter might be pretty bad for a fangirl, who'd have to leave Middle-earth.)
* AuthorAvatar: Miss Cam is a stand-in for Camilla Sandman.
* CompanionCube: Toey the toe ring, [=BreadLegs=], [=RollFeet=]
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: One punishment involved having to write lines in "Urple" ink, Urple being a colour described as a combination of pink and purple in the worst possible way. It's very hard to write when looking at the ink is painful. Or listening to Bombadil poetry for a whole day.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Averted surprisingly with Gimli.
** Played straight with Legolas.
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Witch-Wall On Her]]: Lina. She gets better.
* EvilVersusEvil: Morgoth vs. Sauron. They are always arguing and fighting about who is the best Dark Lord.
* EvilerThanThou: Morgoth vs Sauron
* FanGirl: Many of the girls at school, of course.
* FictionalColour: [[RunningGag Urple]]
* FisherKingdom: Type 2. All of the attendants were human on Earth of course, but if you enter "elf" under "race" in your enrolment paper, you'll become an elf as long as you stay at OFUM.
* GoodIsNotNice: Elrond! Assigns a crap-load of homework, and prone to temper-tantrums when someone gets their facts wrong.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: All of the Legolas fangirls are willing to stab each other.
* MostFanficWritersAreGirls: But you knew that already.
* ThePrankster: Merry and Pippin, the Urple Bandits.
* RhymesOnADime: Lina, after eating cursed Valinor Vegetable Soup.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: A RunningGag. There are many mini-balrogs in the OFUM, named Grimli, Gimly, Aragon, Bromir, Borimir, Marry, Gandolf, Gandlaf, Bormor, Pippi... apparently they spring to existence when someone spells a Middle-earth's character wrong, or so. It's a convention adopted by [[ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum a very similar series.]]
* SadistTeacher: Morgoth and Sauron, unsurprisingly. Also Elrond.
* SpinOff: [=OFUs=] now exist in {{Redwall}}, [[{{Myst}} D'ni]], [[{{Naruto}} The Hidden Leaf village]], and several other multiverses.
* TemptingFate: Lina has a day where most things go wrong, spends it resisting the urge to ask "What else can go wrong?" because she ''knows'' if she does something else will, until one thing too many does and she lets it slip. She then cries out she didn't mean it...to no avail.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: To Middle-earth, of course.
* YaoiFangirl: Many of them, but they'll be very disappointed.
