Finrod of course deserves a mention, killing a wear wolf with his own hands and teeth is pretty tough.
Thread: Badest person in Middle-Earth

Fingon is also. Anyone who can kill a wearwolf with only his hands and teeth is obviously a total Baddass!
My guess is that it was kind of a double post but with different wording, and Finrod was meant both times.
This scene reminds me of the Volsunga saga -- a bit anyway -- except [among other things of course] that Finrod was able to burst his bonds and then wrestle with the wolf, but still used his teeth.
Sigmund was bound, and ultimately had his face smeared with honey, and when the wolf arrives it licks the honey and sticks its tongue into Sigmund's mouth, whereupon Sigmund bites the tongue off, killing the wolf.
If I recall correctly, Sigmund is free of his bonds after this.
I'm agreeing with the Luthien idea here.
Although, I do kind of like this meme: http://isjeffcartersulking.tumblr.com/post/24693642803
I just realised that I posted twice (above) my computer crashed and I thought it didnt post!!!
Sorry all lol
Tulkas is what comes in mind as the biggest badass in Arda, he is like the Chuck Norris of the Valar, he kicked Melkor's butt more than one time and he did it with a smile on his face.
Gandalf is the biggest badass when it comes to maiars in my book for defeating the Balrog in combat and for his many victories in battle for thousands of years.
As for the elves Fingolfin is my favorite because he challanged Morgoth to direct combat.
When it comes to men , Hurin would win in a fight against any other man on Arda. Eowin deserves special mention because she slew the Withc King of Angmar.
And let's not forget the dwarves and the hobbits. Thorin Oakenshield is a real badass, Gimli a close second. The hobbits have their own examples of heroism : Bandobras "the Bullroarer" Took and Sam Gamgee proved their worth in battle against the creatures of darkness.
The beasts on Arda that are trully badass : Ungoliant, Glaurung and the creature in the lake near Moria.
Ents are badass in their own special way.
And that's all I got .
i agree with aylee,fingolfin wounded morgoth,top vala,pretty badass
Personally I would want galadrial because in the return of the king it says that the power lurking in lorian is greater than they could deafeat unless there master himself (refereing to souron) came, plus with galadrial you get a bunch of elves on your side to.
There are many that can be called badass, but people always forget the most badass of them all. This unlikely person has done it all. He is a destroyer, a savior, an escape artist, an assassin, a thief,and can even be called a true outdoorsman. He is the destroyer of the Dark Lord Sauron. The savior of Frodo. The escape artist who escaped from the clutches of the Nazgul in Mordor, the elves of Mirkwood, and from the Lair of Shelob. He is a skilled assassin. He assassinated goblins with such stealth that he was able to sneak around unnoticed and snatch away goblins from behind. He has been noted as an outdoorsman. He caught fish and rabbits with his bare hands. The One Ring has corrupted many, but at the end, he was the one that destroyed it. These are just a few examples that makes Gollum the baddest badass.
what about your own character,Glorfindel,Slaying a Balrog is only one of the many amazing things he did in his lifetime.
really Gollum had some amazing stuff in his heart,but he looked kind of gangly
no matter what anyone says gandalf is the best!
after all gandalf is Incanus in the South,sounds like he will set someone on fire if he is Wrathfull
Mim the petty dwarf
