List Rules Any character with a name qualifies... in other words, don't just add "Warg".

There are so many iconic and fantastic characters from Tolkien's created universe... and the best of them are hard to pit against each other because it's like apples to oranges. That said, I'm doing it anyway. I'm putting down all the characters I think are the coolest... that means this list isn't going to be EVERY character from Middle-Earth, only the cool ones. I'm going to open it up for you guys to add to, in case someone wants to add Tom Bombadil or Radagast.
