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.

Bilbo HAS to be the BEST. He might not be a warrior but his helpfulness with the dwarven company absolutely nailed it. HE IS THE BESt

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.

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.

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.

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

what’s a fantasy movie without a wizard gandalf has become more like a father figure or grandpa to bilbo he is all powerful in his own way and one of the greats catch phrase in history. YOU SHALL NOT PASS

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.

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.

He shares a strong bond with his companions

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.

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!

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!

One of my most favorite fictional characters!

WOW he can shoot those arrows

5 Smaug Smaug is a fictional character and the primary antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit.

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

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

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

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

6 Kili

He's brave because he's not afraid to shout at Thorin and break sooooo many rules by loving an elf. If Thorin found out he would be like 'NOOO! We cannot dirty the line of Durin with traitors!' And I'll bet Kili won't be afraid of Thorin, as we know he always stands up for what he believes him. He probably has one of the most heroic deaths as he saves Tauriel and basicly just SACRIFICES THE WHOLE LINE OF DURIN FOR THE ONE HE LOVES. To be honest (sorry Thorin lovers) I think He has the most saddest and worst death because he actually lived a while after being impaled, long enough to see Tauriel shout. This was the first time I cried after a character death. I got over it but then TAURIEL KISSED HIS CORPSE AND THEN ELF LEADER DUDE TAKES BACK HIS WORD AND TELLS TAURIEL HE THOUGHT THEIR LOVE WAS REAL. Then I cried again.

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!

He is so cute and nice. He cares about his family and his brother. And in the movie he sacrifices himself for Tauriel. Adorable

Just amazing and he is the character that you can EASILY make up a story for!

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.

Thranduil is portrayed perfectly by Lee Pace in the movie trilogy. He is definitely one of the reasons to watch it and he is one of the best characters overall. He's on par with other popular Elven characters like Legolas and Elrond.

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.

8 Bard

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.

He did die eventually but not in the movies/books

a born king and archer the only people I think is better than him in archery is green arrow and hawkeye andy maybe legolas he is humble to his people and strong one of the greatest character in movies I like to see him and beorn as a team

9 Balin

Balin is the old dwarf.

Nicest and awesome

Sexiest dwarf ever

Extremely clever

10 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.

Very skilled and always looking out for his brother.

So loyal to Thorin, and such a loving brother

Way cooler then kill

The Contenders
11 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.

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

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*

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.

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!

Like Legolas and Bard, very accurate. May disobey rules, but doing the wrong thing for the right reason

13 Bombur

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

My favourite foody fat dwarf.

He was a bit mean to Bilbo at first and slept a lot thourgh Mirkwood but he's cool (only true fans wil understand this not like those idiot Tauriel lovers)

14 Goblin Scribe

WHY ISN'T TAURIEL IN THE TOP TEN AT LEAST!? SHE'S AWESOME! LIKE, THE BEST FEMALE CHARACTER IN THE ENTIRE J. R. R. TOLKEIN UNIVERSE!

YOU SEE THE CAPITAL LETTERS?! THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN I'M STUNNED AND SHOCKED AND JUST APPALLED.

15 Radagast

Radagast is such a funny and likeable character!

I like Radagast cause he SAVED a bunch of HEDGEHOGS!

16 Lady Galadriel

She is very powerful, she sent sauron from Dol guldur

Her part on Dol Guldurbis so coop in the movies!

17 Beorn

Probably one of the strongest characters it’s almost hard to believe his a vegetarian tough he respects all living creature well almost that he is vegan tough probably mostly on cream and honey

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

18 Lord Elrond
19 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

Great villain

20 Dwalin

Strong and looks out for thorin and his distant cousins

Strong and with a head like rock!

21 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.

22 Bjorn
23 Bofur

He's fighting inside of a barrel.
He has a pretty dope airhorn

24 Gloin

My favourite grumpy investor dwarf

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.
