This page is intended to be a list of unnamed characters in any of the works about Tolkien's universe. This page is intended for characters without a specific name but that were seen as important or were seen multiple times in the movies.

Good charactersEdit


  • The Unnamed Princesses are the several daughters of Gondor, born to King Elessar and his Elvish queen Arwen Undómiel. They are the sisters of the future King, Eldarion, as well as the granddaughters of Lord Elrond and Lady Celebrian of Rivendell. Through their mother, they are also the great granddaughters of Lord Celeborn and Lady Galadriel of the faded realm Lothlórien. After the death of their father, commonly known as Aragorn, their mother was torn by grief and laid down her life upon Cerin Amroth. It is likely that after these events took place, the unnamed women would have decided their own fates, whether to sail to the West and meet their Elvish kin, or stay behind as mortals to aid their newly crowned brother.

Evil charactersEdit


  • Orc captain (Moria) (Conjecture) In the Fellowship of the Ring, the fellowship was attacked by Orcs led by this chieftain while venturing in the mines of Moria. When most of the Orcs where killed by the fellowship, the chieftain attacked Frodo Baggins, the Ringbearer, and attempted to kill him with a spear. However, Frodo's Mithril Shirt protected Frodo and made him survived, and the Orc chieftain was ultimately killed by Aragorn.[1]
  • The Orc chieftain was a huge Orc (almost as tall as a man) who was present at the skirmish at Balin's Tomb. He was presumed to be one of the greatest Orcs of Moria and seems to have been the leader of the attack on the Fellowship in the tomb. In the battle, he lept into the chamber as the Nine Companions were fleeing and stabbed Frodo with a great spear, though the hobbit did not die due to the fact that he wore a shirt of Mithril. His spear was quickly broken by Samwise, and as he reached for his scimitar, he was quickly cut down by Aragorn. His followers, seeing their chieftain's death, fled.

The Orc was clad all over in black mail. He had a red tongue, eyes like coals, and a squat, broad, flat face. He carried a huge spear, shield, and Scimitar. He was huge by Orc standards, nearly being man-high.

"That's cursed rebel-talk, and I'll stick you, if you don't shut it down, see?"
—Uruk Soldier
  • Unknown Uruk Scout (Mordor) This Uruk was working for Mordor in The Return of the King (book). He was a soldier (not a scout, the earliest version of this page was unfortunately inaccurate) from the Tower of Cirith-Ungol, which was under the command of Captain Shagrat before he was killed during the uprising started by Captain Gorbag of Minas Morgul and the Nazgûl took over. He makes an appearance in the book while Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee are travelling across the Plateau of Gorgoroth. The soldier in question was armed with a spear, and was travelling with a smaller Orc scout, armed with a bow. They were under orders to track the intruder, but the orders were unclear; "First they say it's a great Elf in bright armour, then it's a sort of small dwarf-man, then it must be a pack of rebel Uruk-hai; or maybe it's all the lot together," as this soldier says, and the smaller scout wanted to "go home". The conversation shifts to Gollum, or the "black sneak" as they know him. Frodo and Sam, over-hearing them from behind a bush, discover that the soldier had earlier shot at the "black sneak", but missed. Eventually, the scout starts to leave, and when he is ordered back by the soldier, and threatened with having himself reported to the Nazgul, expresses his dislike for the Nazgûl and how he was glad that the Witch King, or "Number One" was killed; all-in-all, he thoroughly displayed treason. The soldier, the subject of this page, charged at him with spear in hand, but before he could get close enough to the scout, the latter put an arrow in his eye and ran off the way he came.[2]

Musical Elf

The musical elf

  • Musical elf (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) - This elf lived in Rivendell during the Third Age. In TA 2941, he played the harp when Thorin and Company came to Rivendell.

Dwalin warned him that the harp player was not a female, as was proved true causing all the dwarves to laugh at Kili's embarrassment. This elf was portrayed by Jared Blakiston, but was uncredited.
  • The scene where Kili mistakens the musical elf to be a female was cut from the theatrical version of the film, but can be found in the extended edition.
  • Fish Monger (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) was a Man of Lake-town who worked as a fish monger in TA 2941. When Bard the Bowman was smuggling Thorin and Company into the town, he asked the fish monger to fill the barrels with fish in order to hide the Dwarves. He was portrayed by Jabez Olssen, who was the editor for the film series, and was an additional editor for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

This is presumably one of the many thousands of indistinguishable Orcs who appear in the film, but gains notoriety by being the liaison between Saruman, and the other Orcs of Isengard.

Part of the chain of command, the Overseer has access to Saruman's inner sanctum in the Tower of Orthanc. As Saruman receives orders from Sauron (through the Palantír), these are transmitted to the Orc-henchman, who then ensures their execution in the caverns of Isengard.

  • An Uruk hai captain (The Two Towers) ordered Saruman's Army of 10,000 Uruks into the Battle of the Hornburg in The Two Towers movie. In the film, he stands on a huge boulder and roars, ordering the others to attack the fortress. Here he was most likely killed as soon as the archers started firing arrows, as he, as a commander, was a prime target. He lacked the unique helmet worn by other Uruk-hai commanders however, so it can be assumed he was a normal warrior. After the first death of an Uruk-hai soldier, he stood on a rock without a helm roared at the host, meaning to attack the deep. This one was possibly in the same rank as Uglúk in the movies, and one below Lurtz. If he was in the books, he would probably be one rank below Uglúk.

While Corsair Lieutenant was laughing, Aragorn told Legolas to fire a warning shot, just past the Corsair Bo Sun. The shot hit the Corsair Lieutenant, due to Gimli's axe lightly hitting the bow, angering the Corsair Bo Sun. The Corsairs were all killed by the Army of the Dead.

The Corsair Lieutenant was not given a canonical name but a fansite known as the Middle-Earth Encyclopedia named him "Pete the Pirate" based on Peter Jackson's real name (Pete) and his role (the Pirate).[9]


Orc Raid Commander


Armoured Troll in The Return of the King film.

No Nosed orc in The Return of the Ring film.

  • No Nose was an Orc inspector seen in the extended version of The Return of the King. He noticed disguised orcs Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee while they made their way to Barad-dûr during the Quest of the Ring. His fate is unknown but it is likely that he was slain during the Battle of the Morannon.
  • Orc captain who lead the Orcs to The Black Gate. When he sees two Orcs are sitting down (Frodo and Sam), he whips them to get up. When Frodo and Sam escape, he and the other Orcs continue. He was most likely killed in onslaught of the Battle of the Black Gate.
  • Unknown Orc Warrior was an Orc who apparently hungered for Pippin and Merry's flesh. He begged Ugluk if he could just "take his legs off". When Ugluk said no, he lunged for Pippin and Merry. But before he could accomplish that, his head was cut off. Uruk-hai soon feasted on his body.

Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the RingsEdit

  • The same Unnamed Uruk-hai warrior was in Ralph Bakshi's version of the films. In the film, he is portrayed as an Uruk-hai with a horned helmet and is the only one of the Uruk-hai soldiers on a horse. He is shown in a few scenes as Saruman's army marches on Helm's Deep before the actual battle starts. Later on, he is seen in another scene mid-battle and another one when the battle is drawing to its conclusion.
  • In Ralph Bakshi's version, the Cave Troll of Moria had a very small part. It was seen only partly as it attempted to come trough the battered doors; it bore resemblance to the Swamp Thing, a plant elemental in the DC Comics' universe. Unlike in Peter Jackson's version the troll gets stabbed in the foot by Frodo as the latter cried: "For the Shire!"

Video gamesEdit

The Lord of the Rings: The Two TowersEdit

  • The Unnamed Uruk-hai warrior that ordered Saruman's armies into battle, is also seen briefly in Two Towers video game and is named "Thrugg". Unlike in the movies however, he is seen wearing the helmet of a Berserker.

The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying GameEdit

  • The Unnamed Uruk-hai warrior appears in the Isengard Sourcebook, released by Decipher Inc.. Although in the Sourcebook, they're talking about an Half-orc, not a true Uruk-hai, called "Móg". In the game Móg is Saruman's primary commander, so we have reason to suspect they are the same people.
