Most Evil Beings in Middle-Earth

List of the most evil beings in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle earth through all the ages.
The Top Ten
1 Morgoth (Melkor)

Sauron at his peak of power, even with the One Ring, was not remotely close to Melkor in power. Not close at all.

I really wanted the 2nd prophecy of Mandos to come true so I can see him in lotr

Sauron over time became more powerful than Morgoth, his creation became his worst enemy.

He is the source of all evil and chaos in Middle Earth.

2 Sauron Sauron is the title character and main antagonist of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Originally a servant of the first Dark Lord, Morgoth. Morgoth was later defeated and Sauron fled. He later came back to Middle Earth and took over as the new Dark Lord by using a Ring of Power. He was later ...read more.

I think Sauron was more ruthless and evil than Morgoth because he was gonna do anything to achieve his goal.

3 Gothmog (Lord of the Balrog)

He is the most deformed orc I've ever seen in lotr

4 Saruman (The White Wizard) Saruman the White is a fictional character and a major antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.

I like

5 Witch King of Angmar (Lord of the Nazgul)

He cannot die. Eowyn did not kill him, just temporarily ended him.

He looks pretty terrifying and powerful. He even broke Gandalfs staff.by the way I have a question about how did Gandalf get his new staff when his staff was burned by Sauron in the hobbit?

6 Durin's Bane (A Balrog)

Gandalf should have made some weird water spell on the balrog and if he did this he wouldn't have died.

7 Smaug (A Fire-Drake of Middle Earth) Smaug is a fictional character and the primary antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit.

He wiped out a dwarf army in 30 minutes.

8 The Nazgul (Ringwraith Servants of Sauron)

I want to see them unmasked once just once without their armor.

9 Glaurung (Father of the Dragons)
10 Azog (Orc-Chieftain from Moria) Azog is a character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He was a Orc chieftain who lived in Moria until his death in T.A. 2799. He is referred to in a single remark by Gandalf to Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit: "Your grandfather Thrór was killed, you remember, in the mines of Moria by Azog the Goblin." ...read more.

I'm speechless. I'm surprised how Thorin even lasted a few minutes after killing him.

The Contenders
11 Grima Wormtongue

He murdered hi boss

12 Barrow Wight
13 Ungoliant

I don't even want to talk about her.

14 Ar-Pharazôn

Who is this again?

15 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.

Gollum has a very disturbing history I wish Bilbo stabed him.

16 Shelob

Sam and Frodo should have brought insecticides.

Is Shelob like that spider monster?

17 Mouth of Sauron
18 Denethor II
19 Ancalagon

I don't get how Ancalagon isn't at least 4th.

20 Bolg
21 Bill Ferny
22 Ugluk
23 Grishnákh

He is so creepy

24 Great Goblin

He is super fat and scary
