Best Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Characters
The Top Ten
He is one of the best and most popular characters in the Hobbit and LotR trilogies. He is also quite mysterious, because we don't know much about his background at all. He was created by Tolkien so that there would be an Elven character in the Fellowship that wouldn't overshadow Aragorn and the others. Because of that he was sadly never written about in a lot of detail. He is the son of the Elvenking Thranduil, who is arguably also one of the best characters in the Hobbit movie trilogy. We don't know what his date of birth is, but it's fair to say that he is at least 2000 years old, quite possibly even older. In the movies he is almost 3000 years old. He's very popular and well known because of his portrayal by Orlando Bloom in the trilogies.
The best though. He has so many cool fighting scenes and is hands down the most savage character...besides Thranduil. I don't know how Thranduil himself got so low on the list. Only 30? Top 5 for me. Same with Sam. Only 13?! He's the emotional support hobbit! But still...Legolas is literally the best. His archery skills are fantastic. And he's also incredibly flexible. He's also played by Orlando Bloom which makes him so much better, because he's is an amazing actor. I just wish Glorfindel was in the LOTR. Also one of the best characters in The Silmarillion and is replaced by Arwen in the scene in the river. They should make a Silmarillion movie directed by Peter Jackson. I really want to see that. It's sad though that he's considered ugly in Elvish standards, which he isn't. I mean, who else can do fight orcs while keeping their hair completely flawless?
Legolas is the best!
I would marry him if he was real. Even if he said no
Deserves Silver this Thorin...but do not forget Aragorn! Animations and Charms are what this series needs to offer as well if it is to be great as Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Some people don't like Thorin, but I don't see how. He is just so human. He may not be the greatest person, but he is willing to grow.
Without Sauron, there is no Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit because if Sauron weren't there, there'd be no One Ring to Rule them All, which means no story, which means no movie. Also, technically Sauron was a Dark Lord before Melkor because the first book Sauron was mentioned in was the Hobbit, which came out in 1939. The Silmarillion was published in 2003. So, if you look at it that way, Sauron was the FIRST Dark Lord. If you look at it that way.
He looks very very very cool because of his armour is very detailed
Smaug is a beast, also coolest dragon I've ever seen
Forget Gollum. Smaug is the one who steals the show!
I mean- he IS Bilbo Baggins of BagEnd. A great role model for 'younglings' like myself or just anyone in general.
Bilbo is best ♡
I wish I was Tauriel...
Kili is such a cutie 🍰 I wish he was my brother! Also really weird love triangle thing going on between Legolas, kili and tauriel!
How is Gandalf below a CGI Orc who's not even in the book...?
Not to bash on The Hobbit movies, they're pretty good, but could never match LOTR. Gandalf should be higher though, he's the only character who's a main character in both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Frodo is the best character in Lord of the Rings. He is brave, nice and I like him the most. GOO FRODOO!
I will follow him to death for he was a great warrior and the greatest leader. Gondor shall survive, as well as dunedains.
Whoa whoa whoa, first of all.. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEEPS?! Aragorn should be number 1! I mean, come on, he is noble, humble, and brave. GO ARAGORN YAS!
How are there so laypeople ahead of Aragon
Sam only at #16?
HOW IN THE WORLD DID AZOG THE DEFILER GET AHEAD OF SAMWISE GAMGEE! SAM SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THE BEST CHARACTERS IN ANY MOVIE OR BOOK LET ALONE BEST HOBBIT AND LORD OF THE RINGS CHARACTERS!
Lee Pace is in me top 5 favorite actors so when he played my favorite character in my favorite movie series I was like "YAYYY GO LEE PACE! "
