Why did Smaug not join Sauron?
No. One of the main reasons Gandalf wanted Smaug out of the way was that he was afraid of the possibility of Sauron using the dragon in his quest for the domination of Middle-Earth.
Does Smaug work with Sauron?
Despite there being a connection between them – as both are connected to Morgoth in some way – Smaug and Sauron never worked together. It was an alliance Gandalf and the White Council feared, but it never happened since, as far as we know, the two of them never even met in The Hobbit.
Would the Balrog have joined Sauron?
Since in the Third Age, Sauron was claiming to be the higher authority, it is doubtful that the Balrog would have obeyed Sauron. The Balrog would have no incentive to work for Sauron. There wasn’t much Sauron could offer the Balrog. The Balrog had his kingdom beneath the Earth, away from the prying eyes of the Valar.
Is Smaug stronger than Sauron?
In a fair fight smaug would crush Sauron. This is the guy who was defeated by a dog in the first age. (Huan) Smaug is just so big and has so much attack potential in a fair fight that Sauron would stand no chance. Smaug was made for war.
Did Smaug know Bilbo had the One Ring?
Smaug could smell him and he knew where he stood but never asked him about his invisibility. So, even if Smaug knew about the ring and his master, he was blind to the presence of the One Ring in the halls of Esgaroth.
Did Smaug fight Morgoth?
Highly unlikely. In talking with Bilbo, Smaug says that when he conquered Erebor and drove the Dwarfs out (seizing, he claims, the title of King Under the Mountain), he “was but young. Now I am old and strong, strong!” Yet the time elapsed there is a small fraction of the time since Morgoth’s overthrow.
Can smaug beat Balrog?
So, one glimpse into Smaug’s eyes and the Balrog falls under the spell. Even if it’s just for a second—a moment of hesitation or distraction, it’d be enough. Smaug would snatch up Durin’s Bane and gobble him up with his sword-sharp teeth (and we know swords can kill Balrogs). There you have it.
Can Sauron defeat Balrog?
Originally Answered: Is Balrog stronger than Sauron? In overall power, the Balrog is not stronger than Sauron. Keep in mind the Balrog was the equal of Gandalf the grey, and when Gandalf came back as the white he stated he was now second to only Sauron in power. Probably not.
Does Smaug have to eat?
While it is not specified in the books, Tolkien’s dragons may not need to eat to survive as they are implied to be immortal unless killed (like elves). Or maybe Smaug come out every once in a while to hunt some beasts of prey in the nearby.
Does Sauron still serve Morgoth?
Yes, at least while Morgoth was in the game. > In all the deeds of Melkor the Morgoth upon Arda, in his vast works and in the deceits of his cunning, Sauron had a part, and was only less evil than his master in that for long he served another and not himself.
Would the Balrog use the ring?
A fan wrote to Tolkien asking if the Balrog would have been able to use the ring. Tolkien replied that yes it would. From memory he also said that if the balrog had gained the ring Sauron would initially try to treat with it and offer it an alliance. We know that the ring “wants” to be reunited with Sauron.
Can Galadriel defeat Sauron?
In The Lord of the Rings, it is said that had Galadriel chosen to use her powers for evil instead of good, she would have been even more destructive and terrifying than Sauron himself. Galadriel surpassed all other Elves in beauty, knowledge, and power. Tolkien described her as the mightiest and fairest of all Elves.
What would Sauron do if Morgoth returned?
He relinquished his personal strength in return to remake the world and to dominate it, Morgoth. What Sauron did with his “Rings of Power” gambit is a pale imitation of his master, a few Ringwraiths and dominance over Orcs. When Morgoth returns, Sauron will bow to his master.
What would happen if the Balrog got the ring?
In any event, the result would be the same as any great and powerful person using the ring: they would turn the world into their personal Empire. Balrogs are essentially fallen angels (former Maiar), corrupted by Morgoth into their present demonic forms (called Valaraukar).
