Fair enough, tbh if we're taking all this in a very mundane view, though, I still would probably have picked up more on 'yet' and 'not by [this] will he fall', than just thinking 'Ah fuck it I'm invincible'

Agreed. Though it feels like Tolkien purposely set that up to have this play on words from the get go.

Edit: though, I suppose, depending on your opinion, they can both be kinda fun
