Ambush of the Wargs was a battle between the Orcs of Isengard and their Warg allies against the Rohirrim.

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

Peter Jackson's The Two TowersEdit

When the refugees and the Rohan army marched to Helm's Deep, they were ambushed by Warg riders led by Sharku. Háma, Théoden's bodyguard, was killed at the beginning of the battle. After a short battle, the Wargs were routed, and Aragorn mortally wounded Sharku before toppling over a cliff and into a river below. He was believed to have perished, but he survived, and arrived later at Helm's Deep after spotting the Army of Isengard.

Behind the scenesEdit

This battle is non-canonical thus meaning it did not happen in the books. It is depicted only in the film The Two Towers.
