2 Morgoth (Melkor) Morgoth (Melkor)

He was the best of the valar

Commanded millions won battles and nearly conquered the world and was the origin of evil and malice which led to the strife and torment of many

He is Sairons master, and pure evil.

Hé dans the first dark lord and master to Sauron.

3 Tulkas

He defeated morgoth easily...enough said

4 Manwe Sulimo

He was more powerful than all but the one

5 Lady Galadriel

She is not so strong to be No. 2. - Ptaah

OP banished sauron,learned from manwe, good equivalent of melkor

6 Ulmo

He is the Lord of water.

7 Aule
8 Orome
9 Namo

The ruler of the death.

10 Sauron 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.

He would obliterate galadriel in his prine

Smartest of Melkors servants, only he could have thought up to use the rings to control middle earth

He was THE dark lord... Face it

The Contenders

11 Tom Bombadil

He is Lord over his domain.

None of the characters can use the One Ring without it affecting them. The only one who is more powerful is Tom Bombadil the ring has no effect on him. He is older and more powerful than it.

I agree with you, Tom Bombadil has a lot of power, but never uses it in helpful ways unless to himself.

He may seem sissy, but nobody can deny he is very powerful.

In his true form

He knew most things about the sauron and what happened before the lord of the rings / hobbit - mneilan

13 Ancalagon the Black

Largest character in middle earth. Nearly destroyed all of northern middle earth when he landed on (and crushed) a volcanic mountain chain.

This is the most powerful being

He's a bloody big dragon

14 Aragon

KILLED LIKE A JILLON ORCS

15 Legolas 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.
16 Gandalf The White
17 Galadriel Galadriel Galadriel is a character created by J.R.R. Tolkien, appearing in his Middle-earth legendarium. She was one of the greatest of the Eldar in Middle-earth, and surpassed nearly all others in beauty, knowledge, and power. She was also the bearer of Nenya, one of the three Elven rings of power. In film, ...read more.
18 The Balrog

The balrog/Maiar known as Durin's bane singlehandedly destroyed the dwarven kingdom of Moria and also defeated Gandalf the Grey (another powerful Maiar) in its final fight (dying in the process). Out of all the beings in Middle Earth (during the third age anyway), it was definitely one of the most powerful, it should be higher. How can Legolas or Aragorn be higher? It's like comparing a tank to a pistol. If Gandalf hadn't been with the fellowship, all of them would have been killed with ease by the Balrog.

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

Takes over powerful dwarven MONTAIN like it’s nithing and then easily destroys laketown? should be a little bit higher

21 The Witch King, King of the Nazguls

He is lord of nazgul and very strong

22 Saruman of Many Colours Saruman of Many Colours Saruman the White is a fictional character and a major antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.
23 Lurtz
24 Fingolfin
25 Talion

Because why not even if its not cannon. His story shiws he striked so much fear in Sauron that even after he became lart of the Nâzgul, sumbitch still watched him 😂

26 Frodo Baggins Frodo Baggins 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.

27 Gothmog Gothmog
28 Gimli Gimli
29 Ungoliant

"And still she thirsted, and going to the Wells of Varda she drank them dry; but Ungoliant belched forth black vapours as she drank, and swelled to a shape so vast and hideous that Melkor was afraid."

She basically consumed everything and a being that brings fear to the embodiment of evil says A LOT.

30 Earendil
31 Glaurung

Underrated and big, he is more powerful that Smaug.

32 Arwen Arwen

As we see in the movies Arwen was the most powerful elf. She revived Aragorn through a dream! Female elves #riseup
I don't rely the books. They portray Arwen as a weak maiden who sat at home and cried. The internet loves Arwen the warrior.

33 Eowyn

She make good stew

34 Thorin Oakenshield Thorin Oakenshield

Thorin is also the best

35 Azog Azog
36 Samwise Gamgee Samwise Gamgee Samwise Gamgee, known as Sam, was a Hobbit of the Shire. He was Frodo Baggins' gardener and best friend.
