- Demonic Spiders: The green spiders. Who else? Especially considering they're the descendants of Ungoliant, who is pretty close to a demon.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- You can hear some elves in the background wondering if there are any beardless dwarves. There are some (almost) in the recent film trilogy.
- This trailer has Smaug declare that he is King under the Mountain... ten years before The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
- Tear Jerker: The game is mostly a brightly-colored, action-adventure version of Tolkien's book. Then you get to Mirkwood, and meet Corwin, a soldier from Laketown, whose entire party was just killed by spiders, including his brother. The music alone will tear your heart out.
