What do you think was the best monster in these books?
i would say ents, but uruk hai are pretty bad ass.
The Balrog or Shelob.
Balrog. No contest.
Balrogs were cool, but let's not forget about the dragons.
fell beasts, ents, and balrogs
Ent's aren't "monsters" (IMO) but for my choice, I guess I would have to conform and go with the Balrog. You just don't get kooler than that. = D
The Watcher in the Water for sure.
I don't think that the uruks (or any of the other orcs) can be cathegorised as monsters. I mean they have a society, a culture, a civilisation (however bloodthirsty and barbaric it may seem). Shelob, the dragons, the thing from the pond outside Moria's gates, the balrogs, thoses are monsters.
I personally like balrogs :balrog: , they have a Diablo thing going on (at least in the movies)
Shelob can't be topped.
Well I liked Smaug, you have to admit, he has more personality than some fat spider who just wants to eat.
He is definetly cooler than any orc, and a dragon is more powerful than a Balrog if we are to go by the Silmarilean.
And hey, Smog had magic that made people do funny things, GO SMAUG YOU ROCK!
Also, I forgot about Ungoliant. and the barrow wights
as a not so big LOTR fan (but knows all monsters...I think lol) I think the Balrog is the best. I love fire so a fire demon like the Balrog was the coolest to see in FOTR. I have a painting (a copy) of it. It showed the Balrog not only with a whip but also with a sword So if people still see me as a lotr hater...why would I collect things of LOTR...If you want to see the swords I collected of LOTR...be my guest
I always found the barrow wights to be more sinister than the balrog or fell beasts.
I'm the best monster around.Ask anyone.
I did. You're not. -_- Better luck next time.
I always lked Grond. Used in a great way, tremendously powerful and a tentative connection to Morgoth's hammer.
Besides that, The Mouth of Sauron and the sleeping Dead in the Dead Marshes
easily the balrog obv, only gandalf could beat the balrog and he died doing it...
Hmm. For me it's a toss up between giant spiders and balrogs.
Separate names with a comma.
