Proving their might and mastery in combat, the strongest Elves from the Lord of the Rings franchise fear no evil and never hesitate in battle.

The Elves were the first children of Eru Ilúvatar, the Creator of J. R. R. Tolkien's fantastical world of Arda. Beings of radiant beauty and great power, they awoke on Middle-earth thousands of years before Frodo's journey in The Lord of the Rings. While Men were prone to exploring technology, Elves preferred to spend their time basking in their world's natural warmth.

However, the Elves' seemingly relaxed attitude shouldn't be mistaken for complacency. On the contrary, most of the earliest warriors in Middle-earth were Elven (or Half-elven), leaving an eternal mark on the world given to them and shaping Arda's history.

Updated on September 14, 2022 by Scoot Allan: Fans excitedly headed back to Middle-earth for the highly anticipated release of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Amazon Prime Video. The prequel series featured a heavy focus on a few new Elves while also exploring well-established characters at different times in their lives. Powerful Elves like Galadriel and Elrond continue to prove their strength in the new series as they prepare for an epic battle with the second Dark Lord, Sauron.

Fingolfin traveled to Middle-earth with his half-brother Fëanor as an obligation to his family. Over the next few centuries, he led his forces to victory in several battles against Morgoth during the War of the Jewels. However, the Battle of Sudden Flame nearly cost the alliance of Elves and Men the war, which caused Fingolfin to spring into action.

Fingolfin furiously charged all the way to the Gates of Angband and demanded Morgoth come out and fight him. The Dark Lord was terrified, but accepted the challenge so as not to appear weak before his minions. Fingolfin was killed in one of the LotR franchises' saddest deaths. However, he gave Morgoth a limp from that day forward after inflicting several grievous injuries upon him.
