Added DiffLines:

* Balin gives Thorin an ArmorPiercingSlap when the latter wallows in self-pity.
--> '''Balin:''' That is enough. For years I accepted these outbursts of melodrama because it was you, and Mahal knows you have suffered enough over the years to make you as bitter as any five other dwarves. But this is ''enough''. After these last months I know you can be better than this. Whatever was done ''made'' you better than this and you will not sink back into self-indulgence now! We have a job to do, given to us by our creator no less, and we will see it done as best we can. That means looking forward, not backward. Finish the tale and let us move on.


* Elladan, Aragorn, Merry, Pippin and Sméagol kill a Nazgûl. Not the Witch King (no man can kill him, after all), but they still take on one of Sauron's most powerful servants and kill it.

Added DiffLines:

** Followed by Dwalin shooting down the Fell-beasts, thinking it's the Nazgûl returning. Mistaken though he was, and disastrous though the consequences could have been, he still ''shoots down the Nazgûl's mounts''.

Added DiffLines:

* Thorin snarks at the Great Goblin, then calls to Gandalf for help while the Goblin is distracted.
--> '''Great Goblin:''' Cocky, aren't you? Considering that you are captive and with no way out.
--> '''Thorin:''' I would not say so. Not so arrogant as one who allows himself to be distracted by gloating and fails to notice that his captives include a wizard. Gandalf!
--> ''[Gandalf's blast of energy knocks the goblins flat]''

Added DiffLines:

* Fíli and Thorin commandeer the Fell-beasts to rescue Frodo and Bilbo from Mount Doom, which is currently ''erupting''.

Added DiffLines:

* Dís, Sigrid and Tauriel fight the Witch-King. Sigrid kills him.


* Denethor's OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: He kills an Orc, gets a wound across his face that is so severe his men thought he would bleed to death there and then, but ignores it for the rest of the battle so he can lead the charge to Osgiliath.

Added DiffLines:

* Galadriel creates a wind storm and drives the Nazgûl back.

--> '''Legolas:''' That is for 150 years of your ''filth'' overtaking my home.

Added DiffLines:

* The Company defeat the trolls without Gandalf's help this time.

Added DiffLines:

* Bofur [[spoiler: kills Saruman]] with a knife hidden in his hat.
--> '''Bofur:''' That's the problem with you mighty folk. You always underestimate the hat.


* [[spoiler: Sméagol's]] HeroicSacrifice. He leads the Nazgûl as far away from his friends as he can before he stops and lets them kill him.

Added DiffLines:

* Bofur smart-mouths Saruman. When Saruman demands to know where the Ring is, Bofur pretends to think he means Thorin's ring, and when Saruman offers him all the wealth of Middle-earth, Bofur reminds him that most of that wealth is in Erebor, where Saruman and his "little toy army" can't get at it.
** Note that the "little toy army" is made of orcs. Saruman's specially-bred orcs, no less.

Added DiffLines:

** Then they kill two more! As Merry says, "[[CassandraTruth No one at home is ever, ever going to believe this.]]"
