Top 10 Most Terrifying Lord of the Rings CharactersCharacters that would be scary if you ran into them.
The Top Ten
"There is no life in the void. Only death."-Sauron
He strikes fear into the hearts of the people of middle earth.
His eye is just creepy. It's like looking into a black hole full of hate. - IronSabbathPriest
When I look at sauron I think of Saran
As an arachnaphobic, Shelob absolutely tertifies me. I'm really glad I wasn't in Frodo or Sam's place. - IronSabbathPriest
Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope and Nope. Still can't watch her scene. - EJ0602
It might be kinda scary, but you have to admit it's also a pretty badass creature - evermxre
Also this is kinda offtopic but am I the only one who thinks marvel used the balrog as inspiration for surtur in thor ragnarok? - evermxre
Freaky son of a biscuit
It looks like Lucifer himself!
Pretty scary. I like the dragon he rides. - IronSabbathPriest
Unlike Sauron, this guy actually gets up and does something.
He breaks Gandalfs staff
He does not ride a dragon.Did you watch the movie with your ass? It's a fellbeast not a dragon!
I am pretty sure Kate Blanchett only plays creepy people. - JoyAbigable
She's quite scary when she's in that trance. - IronSabbathPriest
Hideous looking creature and so is the character
That woman can get in your head, like seeing all sexual fantasies you imagine right at the moment you see her :o
He's stronger than he looks. - IronSabbathPriest
Creepiest character I've ever seen. The ones that didn't creep out the first time they saw him have really brave hearts. - TopTener
Gives me the creeps. - ilar9118
He looks like a 3 feet tall 90 year old hunchback Asian lady
His general apperance is enough to make me run. - IronSabbathPriest
Morgoth could probably look at any modern western villain and say "That's cute." Guy makes Smaug look like a pansy and Shelob like a box of kittens.
The more ancient the more scary. He is ancient
He's the best villain of the entire Tolkien universe but he's not from LOTR but from the Silmarillion. - IronMaidenFan666
Books only, not the movies.
Sauron's boss during the First Age.
I suppose he's too not scary. But you wouldn't want to make him angry! - IronSabbathPriest
Being trapped in a place with wrath like creatures..? No thank you
Yes, this is so scary!
He should be number 1! He’s a dentist nightmare. - asantalo
He's the creepiest LOTR character ever, just look at those yellow teeth, that's so grose and his voice is so evil. - IronMaidenFan666
I could not wathc that scene
She devoured herself just think about that. And she was able to overwhelm Morgoth if it wasn't for the Balrogs.
Just imagine Shelob, but bigger and creepier and spewing darkness. She has an everlasting hunger and went toe to toe with Morgoth for crying out loud. Scary to think of witnessing her.
Queen of all spiders, and grandmother to Shelob, but three times larger. Balrogs were created to fight her, but it took several Balrogs just to get a tie in the fight.
Anyone remember the Bilbo jumpscare? I know that I'll never forget it.
Hehe I always skip the scene in Rivendell with Bilbo's jumpscare...
Legolas is a bad character
Books only, not the movies.
Intended by Tolkien to be something like "God's little brother", and more powerful than anyone, even Sauron.
However, he did not care about anything or anyone else, and did not get involved.
Tom bombadil is basically Tolkien
Eru help you if you get between him and a Silmaril. This guy killed his own kin to get them back!
Smaug the last great dragon he took down many dwarven armies in the hobbit from J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel the hobbit
Only when he is angry.
