Top 10 Hobbit Characters


The Top Ten

1 Bilbo Baggins Bilbo Baggins Bilbo Baggins is the title character and protagonist of J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit, as well as a supporting character in The Lord of the Rings.

He starts week but he goes through a lot of character development and ends up an awesome character. Always excited to read about his latest antics.

I remember him from the 1977 version, which was old when I was born. I have it on VHS.

2 Thorin Oakenshield

I really hate him in the beginning

Thorin is awesome!

I like puppies

3 Gandalf Gandalf

He is BA in the Lord of the Rings but even more so in the Hobbit like when he enters Goblin Town and just blasts all the Goblins off the platform.

As cool as he is in LOTR (where he is second best character only to Legolas) I must say he is completely amazing in the Hobbit as the one who starts off bilbo on his adventures and ultimately is the reason for the hobbits who go on adventures. Legolas is a close second

Though Bilbo is the protagonist, I don't really love him... Gandalf, both the wisest and the funniest [i believe this is no coincidence] of the most prominent characters really stands out. Hurray for Gandalf!

4 Legolas Legolas Legolas is a character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He is a Sindarin Elf of the Woodland Realm and one of nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring.

Legolas is so cool I love him

He is awesome in lotr and the hobbit

5 Smaug Smaug Smaug is a fictional character and the primary antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit.

Even though he was evil, he was an enjoyable character. Plus he is a Dragon

The dragon to drop him 3 in your dreams

He's a dragon. That's all I need to say.

6 Kili

He is so cute and awesome

Best character

He is so cute and nice. He cares about his family and his brother. And in the movie he sacrifices himself for Tauriel. Adorable

7 Bard

He was my favorite character, I just wished they had more story to tell of him.

Killed smaug the evil dragon


8 Thranduil

He is so underrated he's an awesome fighter he also rules when the coolest kingdoms in Middle-earth what more do you want

Thranduil is an excellent character. Lee Pace KILLED IT in the Desolation of Smaug, and I love his cold, noble, arrogant, and intelligent persona.

He's a beautiful, badass bastard. He's got it all. I honestly don't understand how he's not the franchise's most popular character.

He's so beautiful

12 Azog Azog
13 Bombur
14 Dwalin
15 Goblin Scribe
16 Tauriel

I love her! I love her accent, her hair (I love all of their hair it's all the same) and especially her independence. She gets banned from Mirkwood. Her: "Ah, screw it, I don't need those dorks! " (Lol she didn't actually say that) however... What is that I sense? Jealousy. And we move on to the character who has always loved her... (Drumroll) Legolas. Two guys fighting over a she-elf. Poor Tauriel. Descisions, descisions. I was so mad at that elf dude (I'm not dumb or anything I know he's Legolas's dad. But I can't remember his name or how to spell it.) when he tried to kill Tauriel! I was so mad I was nearly swearing! And then The Hobbit version of Prince Charming come and... Well, naturally saves the day. It appears that Legolas has nothing better to do than save his girlfriend... *smirks*
