Top Ten Most Powerful Characters In Middle Earth
The Top Ten
He created everything and he is God, so he's #1 obviously.
Actual decent list that I agree with #1
He is God. No dispute.
Iluvitar is god of Middle Earth
Even though Iluvatar is more powerful, I chose Morgoth because he's the most powerful of the Valar.
Subjugated millions of Elves, brainwashed 2/3 of all Men and made them the Haradrim and Rhun-Men (Easterlings), and had three servants more powerful than all Ainur except the 14 : Thuringwethil, the beautiful she-Vampire, Gothmog, the Powerful, and Sauron, the Feared (Mairon the Admirable). He was also seen to be around 100ft tall in many works of art, although it is more likely he was 20ft. Imagine a 30m tall black metal monster with a giant fire scepter walking towards you (for scale, Annatar Sauron is around 3m tall, avg human male 1.6m, and T-Rex height 15m.
Morgoth was the origin of evil. Sauron expended his (tiny) power, in the War of Wrath shown to be millions of times weaker than Morgoth's as he ran away like a lil weasel while Gothmog and Thuringwethil were killed by warriors of good, and Morgoth was imprisoned, into a 5cm ring of gold, whereas Morgoth expended it ...more
He might not have been defeated, but he had probably the most powerful army ever.
He is Sairons master, and pure evil.
He was the best of the valar
He defeated morgoth easily...enough said
He was more powerful than all but the one
He is the Lord of water.
The ruler of the death.
She is not so strong to be No. 2.
She is a beast in the hobbit
OP banished sauron,learned from manwe, good equivalent of melkor
shes amazing, kind, pretty, and super powerful. Also, she heals gandalf and is the owner of Nenya, the ring of water
He should be above Galadriel in power. I mean, Galadriel is powerful, no question, but she couldn't KILL Sauron. All she could do was banish him... and she had a hard time doing even that.
Sauron shouldn't be on this list, he was defeated by a mortal, and is a servant of Morgoth.
Smartest of Melkors servants, only he could have thought up to use the rings to control middle earth
He would obliterate galadriel in his prine
Very true that Iluvitar is God in Tolkien's world, but Tolkien kind of hinted that Bombadil was something like "Iluvitar's baby brother", with essentially more power than anyone/anything else, but not caring to actually wield it in any way except to be left alone.
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.
He knew most things about the sauron and what happened before the lord of the rings / hobbit
In his true form
he's just cool
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
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.
very smart, owner of viyla, the ring of air
Not the strongest but way to low Gandalf feared this creature after all and it destroyed the dwarves with ease and it was a beast used by the dark lord its not something to be under even though aragon controls and army of ghosts so I mean I put him at the top
Takes over powerful dwarven MONTAIN like it’s nithing and then easily destroys laketown? should be a little bit higher
He is lord of nazgul and very strong
