2 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.

Saruman was quite a great villain. He is more awesome than Sauron

He is epic was completely at all times

3 The Witch King of Angmar

Do you not know death when you see it, old man? This, is my, hour... *pulls out flaming sword* *screch* You have failed. The world of men will fall.

5 Balrog

More like Durin's Bane. A balrog isn't just one creature, there are a ton of balrogs. It's like saying Dragon is the main character of The Hobbit. But yeah, I guess most people, including me, associates balrog with the balrog that Gandalf fought.

Before dying kill you

He can sing, he can rule and he can destroy. He kind of is the other goblin King David Bowie. He is awesome

He is so cool.

15 The Nazgul
