What does Bilbo announce at the end of Chapter 17?

Bilbo explains how it has come into his possession, which enrages Thorin. Bilbo is struck with a stone and passes out. In this chapter, the Battle of Five Armies occurs, and Bilbo reprises some of his former hobbit behavior when he is knocked unconscious by a stone, which puts an end to any further heroism on his part.

Why is Bard the hero of Chapter 14?

Bard is brave enough to be the last man standing in the town and skilled enough to kill Smaug with a shot. Bard is kind and reasonable, presenting the demands of the men and the elves as politely as possible to Thorin and asking only for what is needed to rebuild Lake Town and help alleviate his people’s suffering.

How does smaug die?

In The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Smaug attacks Lake-town. He is killed by Bard with a black arrow and his body falls on the boat carrying the fleeing Master of Lake-town.

Is Balrog stronger than Sauron?

Balrogs are not actually that powerful. In the Morgoth’s Ring “Orcs” essay Balrogs are explicitly stated to be less powerful than Sauron. This is borne out by the fact that heroes of the First Age could defeat Balrogs (admittedly dying themselves in the attempt), but Felagund could not overcome Sauron.

Why was Sauron not a Balrog?

“In their origins, as a part of the Thought of Ilúvatar, these were MAIAR of the following or service of Melkor, the mightiest of the Ainur. They had the form of spirits of fire. This means that Sauron and Saruman as Maiar of Aule were not Balrogs as they did not originate with Melkor during the music.

Is melkor stronger than Sauron?

9 Answers. Morgoth is clearly more powerful than Sauron. Sauron is stated to be Morgoth’s greatest servant but in the end he is just that, a servant of a greater power, even if he later took over the mantle of Dark Lord. He could not hope to match his master’s power, certainly not at his peak.

Would the Balrog have joined Sauron?

And if so would a Sauron/Balrog/Smaug team be beatable? Just curious lol. No, because honestly, they were already given a ton of chances. Despite common conception, Sauron was very active throughout the Third Age.
