Sam—His Gardener

A lot of people think that Aragorn or Legolas are the most notable badasses of the Fellowship, but let's be totally honest here: Sam is absolutely the little guy that carried the entire party.

Samwise was a gardener at Bag End, working for Bilbo and being one of Frodo's best friends. He is a strong and fearless hobbit that went above and beyond his calling to assist the Ringbearer. Being the only of the Fellowship that can truly cook great meals, he was indispensable to the morale of the crew early on. Once the Fellowship split, however, he stuck with Frodo and did everything he could to keep the guy from eating dirt.

Out of all the hobbits, Sam is the strongest and quite possibly the best fighter; between the combination of Berserk and his natural luck, he can certainly hold his own against a few measly orcs. On top of this, he is incredibly motivational: a wall of will that was absolutely crucial to keep Frodo moving in those last days of their journey.

And there you have the famous and absolutely not gay pair of hobbits that made it all the way into Mount Doom. Leave your questions, comments, and complaints below!
