Mine are Frodo, Sam, Gandalf and Aragorn. The old wise guys (e.g. Gandalf, Obi-wan Kenobi) always get me. Frodo as the main character deserves recognition, Sam is just so cute, and Aragorn almost counts as an old wise guy.

If we`re talking movie it`s Gandalf. Ian McKellen vs Elijah Wood is just not a fair fight. If it`s the book then it`s Frodo.

I don't know, I personally quite like Elijah as Frodo Baggins. One of my more favorite actors in the trilogy.

Like we say in Norway: tastes are like the bum: split down the middle. The reason I had a lot of trouble with Wood as Frodo was that the strength of the character never really appeared. In the book he is noble and very forceful, while Wood plays him more like a sentimental, ninnying guy who is always dependent on others for everything. Even Frodo`s great moment at Parth Galen is destroyed, which is when he really grew up in the book and realized he couldn`t trust anyone, and therefore left to finish his quest alone. This wasn`t Wood`s fault of course, but it didn`t help him much. Maybe it really was Jackson who didn`t really understand the character though and not so much the fault of Wood, whom I usually like. Just not as doe eyed Frodo.

Samwise Gamgee, though to be perfectly honest he's my favourite character in the story period, be it the source material, Peter Jackson trilogy, or the BBC radio play.

Another similarity - it doesn't do to examine someone else's too closely.

In the book he's described as "a stout little fellow with red cheeks, taller than some, fairer than most, perky chap with a bright eye." In the film he seems rather frail, fearful and sullen.

Well, I like Legolas the most. Because, he is an elv and he is an archer. And elves and archers are really cool guys. He is extremly powerful, loyal, intelligent and he has nice hair. ;)

I like Sam very much. It's a real friend! Everyone should be like he in friendship. He is very good hobbit and rather calm.

It's hard to choose one favorite among all the characters. I'd go with Gandalf, Frodo, Sam, Aragorn, Boromir and Eowyn in the films. In the book the list goes long.

I'd say my favorite character is Gandalf in both the books and movies since he's motivated, powerful, and humble. Also he's one of the driving forces of LOTR.

From the Fellowship? Gimli wins. I'd say Gandalf, but you'd have to see my other post regarding him... Is he really on the Hobbits' side?

He's on the side of all who want Middle earth to be a place of light. He may be willing to sacrifice others to achieve this goal but mostly his means are as pure as his ends.

Elrond is my favorite character in Fellowship of the Ring. I really wanted to see more scenes with him in that movie. Even though he's not actually part of the Fellowship, per se, he's got a surprising amount of importance and influence over the story. Hugo Weaving was perfectly cast!

I find that I like some of the secondary characters as much as like the main characters. Here are a few characters I realy liked the backstory of or just felt interesting. Faramir is by far one of my favorites. His rejection from his father because of his brothers successes and then goes on a hepwless mission to impress his father but is then nearly burned. I sort of hated the movie version because they totally changed him. Book faramir was wise and cunning. He knew the danger of the ring and it's treachary. Thanks Peter Jackson for turning my favorite character into a scumbag. Another character I like is barnabus butterbur. The name alone is enough to make you like him. Gandalf trusts him enough to include him in his schemes to save the world so he is pretty trustworthy. And nob just makes him all the better. Tolkien is just such a good writer and his characters are all among my favorites including his villains. Sauroman was always interesting how he was so stubborn even when he is starving in the streets. However who came up with sharky? That is by far the worst code name EVER. I could talk for days on my favorite characters so I should probably stop before I type to much. I just have to set though. Feonor is pretty epic. Elven master but also so evil. Created silmarils but then slated his kin. That is why Tolkien is one of my favorite authors.
