I think that Ringwraiths are the most evil of creatures, instead of becoming evil, they chose to bear the rings. I get scared just reading about them, I wouldn't have done very well as a member of the Fellowship... ;)

I put "other unique creatures," there are so many mysterious beings in Tolkiens books. The watcher in the water for example- what is it? What's it doing there? And how long has it been living in the dark pond in front of Moria?

I think that the only TRULY evil creatures out of all those has to be the Ringwraiths. But they are only evil as long as Sauron is evil.

There has to be exceptions...well, good Balrogs would be highly unlikely. I believe that there are good Orcs, Dragons, and the like somewhere out there in Middle-Earth.


....wait....Evil Men wouldn't be evil if they were good! Oops.

My favourite "evil" creature is Gollum, because he isn't evil to the bone and a very complex character. Though I'm not sure whether he really fits into that poll.

Btw. LOL @ Grond's reply ;)

I voted for dragons. Only one was in The Hobbit, but I thought it would be prretty cool if their was another in the other books.

I'm going with the Ringwraiths. I love their (visual) simplicity. Although that Watcher outside the West gate of Moria probably creeps me out more than anything else except for "The Eye".

As the polls show there is a tie between Ringwraiths and Balrogs. That may be because they were both servants of a dark lord.
True, but Balrogs were Servants unto the Master. Ringwraiths are but servants unto a Servant.:cool:

they may be crippled, or walk like they are, but they dont die as easy as anything else.
