    The Hungarian Horntail's Flame

    From Redditor u/TheOnlyArtifex:

    In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the way the dragon spits fire is very reminiscent of the way a cobra spits venom, it doesn't just appear out of thin air.

    Smaug Knows More Than He Lets On

    From Redditor u/WaveSamu:

    In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) in Bilbo's and Smaug's dialogue Smaug starts talking about "Oakenshield" even though Thorin got that name AFTER he left the Erebor. Smaug shouldn't know his name because he never left the Mountain.

    Smaug has limited foresight abilities, but this detail also hints at a possibility of spies as a way of gathering information from the mountain. Either way, this information is most likely making Smaug considerably more paranoid over the years.
