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.

He is a big because

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

Great Hobbit.

2 Thorin Oakenshield

I really hate him in the beginning

Thorin is awesome!

I like puppies

What a legend.

3 Gandalf Gandalf Gandalf the Grey, later known as Gandalf the White, is a fictional character and one of the protagonists in J. R. R. Tolkien's novels The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He was an Istar, sent by the West in the Third Age to combat the threat of Sauron, as well as leader of the Fellowship of the Ring more.

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

How is Gandalf beneath Thorin? Seriously.

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

My husband xx

He needs to be in #1, or at least the top three. He is my favorite and so far polls have said he is the hottest LOTR/Hobbit character, the best LOTR character, and the best LOTR/Hobbit character.

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 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.

Thranduil is the most interesting character in the series and my favorite. His personality is multi-layered and his motivations are complex. He is both arrogant and cold on the surface due to the grief and loss that torments his soul, but beneath that exterior is a noble and intrinsically good character who cares deeply about protecting his people and preserving his kingdom. Lee Pace does a masterful job capturing the conflicting emotions of Thranduil. His ability to use his facial expressions to convey emotion is especially impressive and coupled with the genuine way he delivers his lines, one almost forgets he is “acting” a part. His performance is superlative in every aspect.

7 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

How can you not love this guy. Cute and funny, excellent fighter, loves family and sacrifices hiimself for Tauriel (which bugs me loads! ) He loves his brother and nobody respects him enough: especially Thorin! When he gets shot in 'The Desolation Of Smaug' Thorin doesn't want to bind Kili's leg because they have no time but Fili encourages it and Kili saved their lives by opening the gate so he deserves it!

8 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*

Love her and her relationship with Kili! Sane is such a great fighter and warrior and can fit in anywhere. She really shows girls what girl power is!
