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 was the first Hobbit to become famous in the world at large, and was one of the few to visit the The Undying Lands across the ocean. In film, more.

I can't even express how much I love Bilbo. He's such a cute, funny, and amusing character. It's amazing to see the transformation that he goes through from beginning to end. He's just your everyday hobbit in the beginning but he goes through a tremendous change and seeing his character development was amazing.

He is so amazing, especially after how many trials he had to face.
I also respect Bilbo so much, he had such a rough start, and managed to show that he wasn’t just a Hobbit.
(I love Bilbo)

He is a big because

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.

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's the only smart character and the strongest. Tauriel isn't in the books, Thorin turns into a jerk, Azog was only mentioned once in the book, and Bilbo is weak, Obviously the only good character

I cried in his sorta death but when he returned I was like :DD

Very good book - hashmat

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.

He is the most powerful and 3 dimensional character all the others r stupid

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

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

Did he die?

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

Killed smaug the evil dragon


9 Balin

Nicest and awesome

10 Fili

Way cooler then kill

Better than kili

He's a very handsome guy with great skills who loves his family and is always there for his brother. If that's not enough then I don't know what is.

He is more handsome than all of them then legolas (orlando bloom). His death is so sad I cryed when him and kili died! :(

The Contenders

11 Tauriel Tauriel

To be honest, I shipped Tauriel and Legolas more than Tauriel and Kili. Poor Legolas. He loved her, (At least that's what I remembered) but she didn't love him back. - TheFourthWorld

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!

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*


12 Bombur

He was a bit mean to Bilbo at first and slept a lot thourgh Mirkwood but he's cool (only true fans wil understand this not like those idiot Tauriel lovers)

13 Gollum Gollum Gollum is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He was introduced in the 1937 children's fantasy novel The Hobbit, and became an important supporting character in its sequel, The Lord of the Rings.
