[[folder: Khâmul]]

The only other Nazghûl individually known apart from the Witch-King of Angmar and the only one whose name is known. In life, Khâmul was one of the nine Kings of men seduced by the power of the One Ring. In his case, he was a King of the Easterlings in life, but now a loyal servant to Sauron and second only to the Witch-King in authority among the Nazghûl. Just as the Witch-King ruled over Minas Morgul, Khâmul ruled over Dol Guldur, in the North.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When he asks about Baggins to Farmer Maggot, the farmer essentially tells him to buzz off. According to Maggot, Khâmul then made sound that sounded somewhat like a laugh before riding off. Presumably he was amused at the sheer gall of the Hobbit to think he could threaten a Nazghûl.

* CrypticBackgroundReference: A shadowy rider, strongly implied to be a Nazghûl, with a similar description to Khamúl rides up to Erebor and offers Dáin Ironfoot an alliance with Sauron if he'd deliver them Baggins ([[DidYouJustFlipOffChthulhu Dáin refuses]], but it's unclear if this is Khamúl himself, another Nazghûl or even another dark emissary of Sauron like the Mouth of Sauron.



* EvilDetectingDog: Maggot's dogs (who are normally very ferocious) are cowering in terror when Khâmul rides up.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: It is mentioned the temperature seems to drop severely whenever Khâmul arrives.
* TheFaceless: Khâmul doesn't even have red eyes like the Witch-King.

* KnightOfCerebus: The story is fairly light-hearted in the preceding chapters in the Shire. Khâmul is the first servant of Sauron to make a appearance in the story, and with him he brings a foreboding dread that will acompany the entire narrative.

* TheNoseKnows: Khamúl is often described as sniffing the air not unlike a hound to pick up the Ring's scent.



* ScarilyCompetentTracker: Khâmul is the Ringwraith who tracks down the Ring to the Shire during ''Fellowship of the Ring'' and who hunts Frodo during the early chapters. Frodo makes note he keeps finding them no matter how many detours they take.

* VillainOfAnotherStory: As the Lord of Dol Guldur, Khâmul was tasked with commanding Sauron's northern forces, which attacked King Thranduil's woodland realms, Mirkwood, Lórien (which resulted in the Battle Under the Trees, which resulted in a great deal of the forest going down in flames) and may even have a hand in the Battle of the Dale, in which the Sauron-allied Easterlings stormed Dale and the gates of Erebor. But since the focus of Lord of the Rings is in the West, we only get rare offhand mentions to this.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Gaffer Gamgi says he spoke with "some kind of foreign tone" and Maggot says he sounded "queer", which either refers to the odd, unnatural manner Nazghûl speak or possibly to Khamúl's Easterling origin (I.e he may still speak with a Rhún accent).

[[folder: Ugluk]]
The captain of a company of Uruk-hai whom Saruman sent to search the area of Amon Hen. He and his orcs kill Boromir and abduct Merry and Pippin. Probably the most detailed orc character in the trilogy.

* BadBoss: Ugluk openly threatens the lesser orcs under his command with execution (and tends to cut a few up whenever things go wrong.)
* BadassBoast: His Uruk-hai clearly think of themselves as a superior cadre.
--> '''Ugluk:''' We are the fighting Uruk-hai! We serve the White Hand - the Hand that gives us man's flesh to eat!
* EnemyCivilWar: He's got a mixed group of Uruk-hai, orcs from Mordor, and Moria-goblins in his command. The factions come to blows a couple of times.
* HiddenDepths: Saruman obviously didn't choose Ugluk on an idle whim. Like all Uruk-hai, he regards himself as an elite BloodKnight: but he's also a capable tactician, skilled in the orcish art of healing, and knows an awful lot about the politics behind all this hobbit-snatching.
* ImplacableMan: He sets a pace of travel that's right at the limit of orcish endurance.
* LargeAndInCharge: The Uruk-hai are considerably larger than other orcs, and Ugluk is described as one of the largest.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: The narration indicates that after Merry and Pippin managed to escape, Eomer confronted Ugluk in a duel to the death.
* PragmaticVillainy: He mends the head wound that Merry received at Amon Hen, so that Merry can be forced to run rather than being carried.
* VillainousValor: While some other orcs in his company attempt to flee, he fights to the last.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Mouth of Sauron]]

The Lieutenant of Barad-dûr, an evil Man of the same high race as Aragorn who serves as Sauron's herald. The Mouth meets the forces of Rohan and Gondor before the final battle of the War of the Ring and tries to convince the remaining Fellowship that Frodo is a captive and at Sauron's mercy.

* AssInAmbassador: He spends the entire "negotiation" insulting Aragorn and Gandalf, implying the torture of Frodo, and demanding that all of the West immediately surrender to Sauron.
* ColdBloodedTorture: From his dialogue, one gets the impression that he's the one in charge of actually doing this to people who have offended Sauron in some manner.
* DiplomaticImpunity: Appeals to this while taunting the good guys:
--> "Where such laws hold it is the custom for heralds to use less insolence."
* DirtyCoward: Freaks out when threatened, and ultimately turns and runs when given a DeathGlare.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: 'His name is remembered in no tale for [[NameAmnesia he himself had forgotten it]], and he said "I am the Mouth of Sauron."'
* EvilSorcerer: He's learned the Black Arts (Morgul) from Sauron, which is the extent that Men can learn "magic" at all in Middle-Earth.
* GigglingVillain: Not "giggling" per se, but he laughs incessantly at Aragorn and Gandalf's terms.
* HellishHorse: Rides one, in contrast to the Black Riders who ride ordinary black horses stolen from Rohan.
* IShallTauntYou: Pretty much his whole "negotiation" with Gandalf.
%%* MouthOfSauron: TropeNamer
* NameAmnesia: Narration discloses that Sauron's spokesman had long forgotten his own name; he introduces himself to the emissaries of the West by his function, [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep the Mouth of Sauron]].
* OhCrap: When Gandalf rejects his terms, he starts raving, but when the other representatives of the Free Folk give him a DeathGlare, he turns tail and rides breakneck back to the Morannon.
* SmugSnake: He's quite arrogant.
* WizardsLiveLonger: He's really old, old enough to have [[NameAmnesia completely forgotten his original name]]. Whether his own Black Arts or Sauron's are responsible, he's way past his time.

Whether his own Black Arts or the Witch-King's dragon (who's subsequently Sauron's Dragon).

A monstrous demonic thing in spider shape, the mother of the Spiders of Mirkwood featured in ''The Hobbit'', and the last surviving offspring of Ungoliant from ''The Silmarillion'', who spins her deadly webs in a dark cave in the mountains of Mordor. Shelob is Sauron's "cat" he doesn't control her, but lets her prey on would-be intruders (and many unlucky Orcs). Gollum leads Frodo and Sam into her lair.

* TokenSuper: Downplayed. Gandalf is an [[AngelUnaware angelic spirit in human form]], traveling with the otherwise non-magical Fellowship. His exalted origins are largely unknown to the party and his displays of power are minimal, since his [[PhysicalGod Valar]] masters require that the victory over Sauron be won by the people of Middle-Earth.

* OhCrap: Realizing that his men failed to confiscate Gandalf's staff. In ''The Unfinished Tales'', Tolkien's notes reveal he had a run in with the Nazgûl while he was on his way to see Saruman - who they had just been interrogating on the whereabouts of the Shire - and was so terrified that he revealed Saruman had lied to them.

* AxCrazy: Much of Saurons' perceived motiveless malice can be explained by him being batshit crazy. While Tolkien considered Morgoth the madder of the two due to being an OmnicidalManiac, Sauron is no shining example of sanity either and has long abandoned any constructive goals he might once have held. His plan to conquer Middle-Earth and run it into the ground stems from overwhelming, impotent rage at how life has turned out for him, and while he is often capable of taking AFormYouAreComfortableWith when it suits his purposes, behind these fair-forms is an entity consumed with self-loathing and hatred for all things well beyond the point of reason. The ''slightest'' rejection or criticism can provoke him to torture and kill you even if it serves no purpose to do so (or is even counter-productive to his larger plans) and well before the end he loses the ability to feel any genuine emotion beyond anger, hatred and fear.

* InexplicablyAwesome: He can banish evil trees, barrow-wights, and it's implied that even Nazgûl. Also, he can apparently teleport, the Ring has no effect over him, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking has some damn catchy songs.]] It is notable that even the Valar are unable to understand exactly what or who Tom is. It is said that after immediately they had created the world, they discovered, much to their puzzlement, that Tom already existed in it. The Valar were all sure that they were not responsible for creating Tom, and therefore could not explain his existence; he just was ''there'' all of a sudden.
