The Mace is a weapon with a heavy metal head fixed to a long wooden or metal shaft.
Portrayal in adaptionsEdit
The Lord of the Rings film trilogyEdit
In The Fellowship of the Ring, Sauron is shown using a mace in his fight with the soldiers of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. He uses it to strike down Elendil before being struck down by Isildur. This mace is depicted as incredibly powerful, much like its owner, and capable of scattering hundreds of opponents with a single stroke. Whether this is an actual attribute of the mace, or just a power that is channelled by its owner, is unknown. In The Return of the King, the Witch-king of Angmar uses a flail (Mace head on a chain) to attack Éowyn.
The Hobbit film trilogyEdit
Thought to have been destroyed in the great battle between Orcs and Dwarves, Azog the Defiler has come forth once more, and he will stop at nothing to hunt down and destroy every last member of the company of Thorin Oakenshield. Azog’s primary weapon is his war mace. A primitive but brutal weapon, the mace was constructed of wood, leather, cord, and rough forged steel. This replica is based on the prop and models used for the film. It is crafted in steel reinforced polyresin with precise attention to detailing. It is presented with a poly stone wall mount featuring a graphic motif of Azog's tattoo scars.
After Dwalin's weapons are taken by the elves of mirkwood, he is later seen with a mace in The Lonely Mountain which he got from Lake-town.
