    Isn't Elrond supposed to be Lord of the Elves?

    I voted for Galadriel, but on second thought, I think it is that Keebler elf.

    I am sure he has a lot more soft money to give to Middle Earthen political parties, and we all know that money is power.

    Yeah Galadriel is the most powerful Elf. She was a badass in The Hobbit w/ the Battle of Dol Guldur, and she gave Frodo a glimpse of that level of power in FOTR in Lothlorien. #badasselfprops #galadrielisboss

    I think that according to Lotr there was not one single elf who was very powerful but many.
    I can tell you some who were powerful in every way,
    Glorfindel, Feanor, Earendil, Maedhros, Fingolfin, Ecthelion etc.

    In the Istari chapter (sec. 4, chapter 2) of Unfinished Tales, Tolkien says:

    "Galadriel, the greatest of the Eldar surviving in Middle-earth, was potent mainly in wisdom and goodness, as a director or counsellor in the struggle, unconquerable in resistance (especially in mind and spirit) but incapable of punitive action. In her scale she had become like Manwë with regard to the greater total action."

    I don't know, :rolleyes: there's an instance in the movie, at the Amon Hen scenes, where Legolas' bow is singing, dropping Orcs like flies, and an Orc dies before Legolas can even shoot an arrow at the darn abomination! :D:D:D

    I don't know if that's just a movie mistake, or that Lego is more powerful than we think. o_O

    Still cool though. I wouldn't get into a ranged fight with Legolas.

    Heck,, I wouldn't get into any sort of fight with any Elf.

    Other. The greatest elf is unnamed by Tolkein, but was among the great Elf-warriors who died in the great wars previous to the ME story in the LOTRs. Yet these Elf-warriors were still well remembered, even by the orcs as shown by their conversation Samwise overheard while wearing the ring outside the tower of Cirith Ungol.
