Top 10 Hobbit Characters

The Top Ten
1 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,... read 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.

As much as I liked the movies, they kind of deemphasized Bilbo's role in the story. However, Martin Freeman absolutely nailed his role, so he was still a very likeable character.

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.

2 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... read 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

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.

Though Bilbo is the protagonist, I don't really love him... Gandalf, both the wisest and the funniest [I believe this is no coincidence] of the most prominent characters really stands out. Hurray for Gandalf!

3 Thorin Oakenshield

Oh, man, this is well-deserved. Thorin is one of the most badass and hardcore characters in the series. He is one of the greatest anti-heroes in Lotr canon - thanks, I believe, to the groundbreaking acting of good ol' Richard Armitage

Thorin is awesome. I wish I could come up with something more descriptive to say, but I just can't.

I have a huge crush on him. He is brave, handsome, strong and a good fighter. Thorin killed azog.

4 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.

Although not in the book, Legolas deserves a higher ranking on this chart. Have you seen his skills? He can shoot very accurately, He is agile, fast, strong. He has like the highest kill toll of all the characters and has got some brains.OVERPOWERED!

He needs to be in #1, or at least the top three. He is my favorite and so far polls have said he is the hottest LOTR/Hobbit character, the best LOTR character, and the best LOTR/Hobbit character.

Legolas for best Hobbit Character 2017!

Legolas was cool in Lord of the Rings, but he didn't become insanely awesome until the Hobbit. And yes, he has every right to be here!

5 Smaug Smaug is a fictional character and the primary antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit. In Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, he was portrayed via motion capture by Benedict Cumberbatch.

He is the 5 th most powerful dragon ever in middle earth!

Smaug is the coolest villain in all of middle-earth.

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

6 Kili

He is my favourite, he's different than other dwarfs. No beard, tall and super good at archery. It makes him stand out a bit more. Plus I love that Peter Jackson added the romance between Tauriel and Kíli! I also really like his personality always smiling, trying to make people laugh. It's funnyhow everyone on the set called him the "hot dwarf" (he was) and everyone was jealous because he didn't wear a beard and barely and prosthetics.

How can you not love this guy. Cute and funny, excellent fighter, loves family and sacrifices hiimself for Tauriel (which bugs me loads! ) He loves his brother and nobody respects him enough: especially Thorin! When he gets shot in 'The Desolation Of Smaug' Thorin doesn't want to bind Kili's leg because they have no time but Fili encourages it and Kili saved their lives by opening the gate so he deserves it!

7 Thranduil

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.

8 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... read more

The depth of this character surpasses all others. I love Gollum.

Don't tell me that he is not some kind of cute.

9 Bard

A lot of carry over from Lord of the Rings fans. If we're just basing it off of the Hobbit, Bard has to be top 5. One of the biggest heroes.

Bard is so awesome I played him in a school play and really had fun getting into his character!

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

10 Balin
The Contenders
11 Fili

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.

I like how he is always there for his brother and how funny he is.

Very skilled and always looking out for his brother.

12 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*

13 Bombur

Bombur is a great comic relief character. As great as the movies were, they really underused him.

14 Goblin Scribe
15 Radagast

Radagast is such a funny and likeable character!

16 Lady Galadriel
17 Lord Elrond
18 Dwalin

Strong and with a head like rock!

19 Beorn

He is truly awesome. He is much better in the book

20 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

Sauron was cooler in the Hobbit. LOTR as a whole is better, but Sauron is cooler actually doing things.

21 Azog 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

Azog is a really cool villain. His character depth was one of the keys to the success of stretching the Hobbit into three movies.

Very dangerous, Very strong. Although a villain, I love him. he is very physical and owns a really big army

22 Bjorn
23 Bofur
24 Gloin
25 Saruman Saruman the White is a fictional character and a major antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. In the film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he was portrayed by Sir Christopher Lee.
