Read ROTK. You'll see why.
In the book version, Aragorn, in the movies, Legolas. I just think that the idea of an elven Uber Sniper is cool... I could watch him speed launch arrows at orcs all day...
I like the noise the arrows make.
Two elf enter, one elf leave. There can only be one Middle-Highlander.
I voted for Legolas because I suppose he is my favorite character, but my favourite description of a character in LOTR is definitely Shelob.
There agelong she had dwelt,an evil thing in spider-form,even such as once of old had lived in the Land of the Elves in the West that is now under the Sea,such as Beren fought in the Mountains of Terror in Doriath,and so came to Luthien upon the green sward amid the hemlocks in the moonlight long ago.How Shelob came there,flying from ruin,no tale tells,for out of the Dark Years few tales have come.ButStillSheWasThere,whoWasThereBefore Sauron,andBeforeTheFirstStoneOfBarad-dur;and she servedNoneButHerself,DrinkingTheBloodOfElvesAnd Men,BloatedAndGrownFatWithEndlessBroodingOn HerFeasts,WeavingWebsOfShadow;For AllLivingThingsWereHerFood,AndHerVomit darkness.FarAndWideHerLesserBroods,bastardsOf TheMiserableMates,HerOwnOffspring,ThatSheSlew, SpreadFromGlenToGlen,FromTheEphelDuathToThe EasternHills,ToDolGuldorAndTheFastnessOf Mirkwood.ButNoneCoundRivalHer,ShelobTheGreat, LastChildOfUngoliantToTroubleTheUnhappyWorld
Thtat is proly' my favourite passage in all of LOTR.
Aragorn is the MAN!!!
He goes through so much physical s##t throughout the stories and his journey from ranger to King is superbly done.
He's got such drive and shows total dedication he is in my mind one damn fine hero.
Viggo Mortesen rules!
Frodo I adore the little guy
Just to be different, I picked Saruman rather than Legolas But yes, I do love Legolas, Saruman is one of my favs too.
As well as: Boromir and Wormtongue
EDIT: I just realised how odd that must sound. Legolas is my favourite, but my other favourites are Boromir, Saruman and Wormtongue. Legolas really doesn't fit into that group
Difficult to choose between Legolas, Gandalf and Aragorn. I finally choose Aragorn, as I think his story is very interesting.
Eowyn! Some ladies please?
I choose other, I like the Ringwraiths.
Has to be Gandalf.
Aragorn. Both in the book and in the films.
He's such a complex character, has so many things he has to deal with. In a way, he's the one who carries the story of the book.
And it's a sad state of affairs when Legolas almost has as many votes as friggin ARAGORN, savior of mankind, King of Gondor, heir to Isildur and Elendil, wielder of Anduril.
I'll have to go with Perigrin.
Although Legolas was second on my list for the stunts in the movies.
Faramir, with Eowyn being a close second.
my favourite description of a character in LOTR is definitely Shelob.
Mine too. I can re-read the entire Shelob sections over and over.
Sorry to be off topic, I voted already.
Does Traci Lords count?
hello??? why wasnt gollum on the list?
i guess you can figure out why i picked other...
Out of the ones listed I picked Legolas because he's the one that I think is cutest. But my favorite charactor is Gollum! Why wasn't he on the list?
My favorite is Gollum/Smiegel. The best character ever.
LEGOLAS!! Though I normally don't like guys with long hair, he looks PERFECT with it!!
