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.

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 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.

Very good book - hashmat

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.

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

6 Bard Bard

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

Killed smaug the evil dragon


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

8 Balin

Nicest and awesome

9 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.

10 Tauriel 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*

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!
