Top Ten Funniest Lord of the Rings Characters

The Top Ten
1 Pippin

"I had the loveliest dream last night! There was a large barrel, full of Pipe-weed. And we smoked all of it. And then (to Merry), you were sick! "

Peter Jackson hit the center of the board casting Billy for this role.
Perfect. Just, I'm starting to tear up. Perfect.

"Oh, that was close! "
"it comes in PINTS?!?!?! "
"What about breakfast? "
"What about second breakfast? "
"I've always been taller than you! Please Merry, you're what? Three' foot six? At the most?! Whereas me, I'm pushin' three seven! "

Pippin is hilarious! He's always in a good mood even in the darkest times, and always has a joke in his head. In the darkest, saddest moments of The Lord of the Rings, Pip (Merry too) will always send some laughs.

What the!? Gandalf is not mean to Pippin. It was just because he created trouble for the fellowship. He was told to not touch the ball thig and he was tempted so he saw the eye of Sauron that's why Gandalf was pissed off with him...

2 Gimli

I'm not a giant fan of how they made him into a comedic relief in the movies, but I'm not complaining. Hilarious!

Throw me. You have to throw me, I'm to short to jump. Just don't tell the elf.

The comic relief of the series. Without him, its just a bland movie.

3 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. In Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, he is portrayed via motion capture by Andy Serkis.

Is he a pretty twisted character with an incredibly sad backstory and death being the only way he can be at peace? Yes. Do I *still* laugh at him a lot? Also yes. Does this make me a twisted psycho? I'm not sure....

I'm not saying I like Gollum, but you have to admit, he is definitely by FAR the funniest.
I HATE Gollum! He's so stupid, but he was the main reason why I was laughing

Gollum is hilarious! I love the way he speaks and his songs are great! His arguments with himself are also brilliant!

4 Merry

Him and Pippin are pretty much Fred and George before Harry Potter was a thing. Though, in the books I always found him more smart, curious, and funny. It's a shame that his character wasn't portrayed that way. I feel like him and Pippin were set to 'the comic relief' people. Yet, even in the book, they shared some laughable times, (Pippin and Merry) that made me smile. I'm voting for Merry and not Pippin because I feel that Merry is often an overlooked member in the fellowship, even though he is by far one of the bravest. (I mean, come on, he's a little Hobbit in a big war. That bravery.)

Not #2! Why is he not 2nd only to pip?!?Oh, I see, don't be hasty.

5 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. He has been portrayed by Orlando Bloom in the live action movies.

Look up on YouTube "fifteen times Legolas was the best part of LOTR" You'll see the funny side of him and leaves you cracking up laughing! Have you seen the Return of the King where they demand to see the eye of the Black Gate? Legolas is trying to look around Aragorn and he looks half camel half inscect with those eyes!

He is calm is battle, it's just so funny. I love when Gimli says whats happening out there, and Legolas would say shall I describe it to you, or would you like me to find you a box? I love how, sometimes, he would just stand in the background pulling the weirdest of faces.

He is just so calm all the time that I laugh my head off sometimes just watching him. Its just like, a thousand orcs after him and he's like "psht I got this" Also his dad is always living the life of a party.

6 Sam Samwise Gamgee, known as Sam, was a Hobbit of the Shire. He was Frodo Baggins' gardener and best friend. Sam proved himself to be Frodo's closest and most dependable companion, the most loyal of the Fellowship of the Ring, and also played a necessary role in protecting Frodo and destroying the One Ring. The character is from J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium and was portrayed by Sean Astin in The Lord... read more
7 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 and the army of the West. He is portrayed by Ian McKellen in the live action movies.

"Gandalf, where are you going?"
"To seek the company of the only one around here who's got any sense."
"And who is that?"
"MYSELF, Mr. Baggins!"
Gandalf and his insults are just gold. All praise Sir Ian McKellen.

Fly YOU FOOLS I love the way he insults even his closest of friends with his last three words

I love his insults.

8 Bilbo 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, he has been portrayed by Martin Freeman and Ian Holm.

The way he's kind of awkward yet sweet and obsesses over little things is why I love him---and why I relate to him so much.

"If this is some blockhead's idea of a joke, it is in VERY poor taste! "

9 Frodo Frodo Baggins is a fictional character and is the main protagonist of J. R. R. Tolkien's novel The Lord of the Rings. He was a Hobbit of the Shire during the Third Age. He was also a Ring-bearer, a best friend to Samwise Gamgee, and one of the three Hobbits who sailed from Middle-earth to the Uttermost West at the end of the Third Age. The character was portrayed by Elijah Wood in the live action films.

Actually, he's quite hilarious. I mean, all his drama.

10 Denethor

I can't take him seriously whenever he's slobbering or shaking his head screaming.

The Contenders
11 Grima Wormtongue

He's funny in the book as well as the movie. I can remember reading as a child and imagining a raspy voice saying "you lie!"

Get outta my way!

12 Thranduil

Because elvish kings are the best!

13 Boromir

Yes! For some reason I just look at him and I laugh! Loved his line in Moria: "They have a cave troll." So funny the way he says it.

One dose not simply put borimir below Frodo in a funniest list.

14 Aragorn Aragorn II, the son of Arathorn II and Gilraen, is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium and is one of the main protagonists of The Lord of the Rings. He was a great ranger and warrior, and as Isildur's heir he bore the shards of Narsil, reforged and renamed Andúril, in the War of the Ring. In the live action movies of The Lord of the Rings, the character was portrayed by Viggo Mortensen.
15 Elrond

In 'Fellowship of the Ring' he heal Frodo and he look like... a squirrel!

16 Alfrid Lickspittle

This man is so pathetic, he's hilarious.
