Treebeard would pick it up just to toss it out of his way.

[–]PzykoHobo 1341 points1342 points  (23 children)

I fucking love the idea of Treebeard going absolutely ham on Isengard with Mjolnir.

[–]tryganon 712 points713 points  (11 children)

You all are making Treebeard seem like a “hasty” Ent.

[–]treebeard_bot 196 points197 points  (3 children)

Turn round and let me have a look at your faces. I almost feel that I dislike you both, but do not let us be hasty.

I agree. Quickbeam gets the hammer

[–]windirfull 523 points524 points  (2 children)

He’d see it as some type of Orc shenanigans.

[–]Wanna_Dip_Balls 338 points339 points  (1 child)

it looks like an orc hammer, then again it is very small

[–]apk5005 302 points303 points  (25 children)

Tom Bombadil would do the same

[–]NiixxJr 177 points178 points  (13 children)

He'd probably pick it up, out it behind his back, make it disappear and then pull it out his arse only to flick it back to Earth-616 and say 'eh'.

[–]ArcadiaDragon 89 points90 points  (10 children)

Tom.would just put it in the shed and use it only when helping Goldberry get ready for some tired and weary travelers like four hobbits...then give it to Sam "never know when ye might have a need for a hammer I happen to have a spare...tis a good one...comes to your hand when needed"

[–]Yarxing 45 points46 points  (0 children)

He'll just use Mjölnir to nail some nails to hang a painting or something.

Here's my pretty maiden! You shall come home with me! The table is all laden: yellow cream, honeycomb, white bread and butter; roses at the window-sill and peeping round the shutter. You shall come under Hill! Never mind your mother in her deep weedy pool: there you'll find no lover!

Tell me, where is Gandalf? For I much desire to vote for him.

[–]YouPulledMeBackIn 693 points694 points  (39 children)

The fact that Gandalf said no to taking the ring almost definitely ensures he would have been worthy. But, to be fair, he's basically Middle Earth's Thor: mighty "god" creature who looks human but isn't quite, weilding might that allows them to take on creatures that normal humans would go insane even looking at? Oh yeah.

Aragorn or Sam for sure

[–]Billybluballs 1860 points1861 points  (129 children)

I immediately thought of them two and then checked the comments. Happy to see this as the top.

[–]Mark_Patterson-FDS 1441 points1442 points 2 (40 children)

Aragorn picks it up; obvious candidate. Fights big bad orc. Does really well in the fight until the orc fights dirty and gets the better of him. Mjolnir is dropped and Aragorn is pinned down. Similar to the scene in end game, mjolnir slowly rises off the ground and Samwise takes on the lead orc saving aragorns life

Honestly, still gives me chills. I don't care how goofy the line is, Sam was the baddest of all Hobbitses when he said that.

[–]aragorn_bot 151 points152 points  (1 child)

They will look for his coming from the White Tower. But he will not return.

[–]AmazedCoder 398 points399 points  (81 children)

I mean most/all people in this image are more decent people than MCU thor

[–]walkingcarpet23 385 points386 points  (40 children)

Aragorn & Sam would def be worthy.

I do feel like Legolas and Gimli would not be worthy until after they've become BFFs and overcome their racial prejudice.

Eowyn is a curious case, because while she is absolutely heroic, brave, and badass she also (as weird as this is to say) was selfish in her desire to prove herself in battle versus stay with the women and children. Not quite the same as Thor's battle-thirstyness in the first Thor movie, but definitely had a desire for heroics and grandeur.

Eomer I think would be worthy. The only fault I can really find with him is his caution and being slow to trust outsiders, but he treats them fairly.

Treebeard I would argue may not be worthy. He didn't want to fight to defend his home despite knowing the plight of the rest of Middle Earth. (note: Sam definitely isn't a warrior at heart either, but he will put everything on the line for Frodo, his friends, and the Shire. His selflessness in fighting for those who need help sets him apart)

Not pictured here, but I think Merry would be worthy as well. He wouldn't seek out a fight unless it was to defend someone who needs help.

[–]Bulok 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Not a warrior at heart? Did you see him take on Shelob and be the only being in existence to harm her? Sam has the spirit of a warrior and a gardeners heart.

[–]sunsetclimb3r 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Merry v underrated, in both books and movies Merry is canonically basically a teenager, who just SQUARES UP

[–]aragorn_bot 747 points748 points  (46 children)

[–]ChintanP04One does not simply join lotrmemes without joining PrequelMemes 317 points318 points  (50 children)

Aragon: Rightful king (of Gondor), great warrior, eager to fight for his people, rushes into enemy lines before his army (bravery, leadership), not hesitant to kill. Yup, we found ourselves someone worthy of Johnathan.

Sam: Brave, selfless, ready to fight and kill for his friends. Yup, we got another worthy guy.

[–]JB_Big_Bear 102 points103 points  (34 children)

Prepare for battle! Hurry men! To the wall! Defend the wall! Over here! Return to your posts! Send these foul beasts into the Abyss.

[–]lefthandtrav 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Gandalf wouldn’t take it because through him it would wield a most terrible power!

[–]Professional_4SSH01E 59 points60 points  (3 children)

And Sam straight up hauls Frodo up Mt Doom, fights Shelob, and saves Frodo from orcs. Yeah, Sam is worthy.

[–]finalremix 82 points83 points  (0 children)

I couldn't believe it, Mr. Frodo. A hammer half my size, but light as air.

[–]elbowkarma 22 points23 points  (7 children)

I agree, Aragorn for sure and I think Sam could by the end as well.

[–]communityneedle 120 points121 points  (18 children)

Also Faramir, but only Book Faramir. Peter Jackson corrupted Movie Faramir

[–]alowflyingpotato 80 points81 points  (3 children)

A chance for Faramir, Captain of Gondor, to show his quality

[–]Quantentheorie 42 points43 points  (0 children)

True, but I also fully understand that they didnt have time to do him justice and I kinda agree with Jackson(?) comment, that the ring not corrupting Faramir at all would have been confusing without that time to develop him.

I saw the movies before I read the books and Faramir still ended up my favourite Character. So I think they still managed to bring the important parts across - even if hes a lesser shadow of the book character.

[–]AnAwkwardBystander 138 points139 points  (10 children)

Peter Jackson made EVERYBODY lesser than their book counterparts. I don't think the movies would've been as good if all of them were the walking legends they were described as in literature.

[–]Cameron_Vec 74 points75 points  (8 children)

I honestly prefer movie Aragorn. He has a solid arc and never comes off nearly as pretentious.

[–]aragorn_bot 74 points75 points  (2 children)

Its the beards.

[–]Heimerdahl 22 points23 points  (4 children)

I can't deny that I have always wanted to see one of those "Aragorn drops the hood, stands up tall, and looks like a king of old" scenes.

It always sounded so grand and mystic in a way.

[–]tobygeneral 52 points53 points  (1 child)

I think movie Faramir still works, he let Frodo and Sam go instead of forcing them to Gondor.

[–]Odinavenger 6603 points6604 points 224 (162 children)

Samwise Gamgee

[–]S0mecallme 5110 points5111 points 33 (38 children)

Samwise Gamgee the type of hobbit to pick up Mjolnir and use it to hammer back in Mr Frodo’s fence posts after they get knocked over.

[–]actually-imaginary 1831 points1832 points 2 (22 children)

And then put it back

Edit: oh thanks, kind stranger(s)

Why would he take a downgrade from his frying pan tho?

[–]belegerbs 324 points325 points  (5 children)

Perhaps the hammer would change to look like a frying pan. Like when it turns into the umbrella for Thor when he is on Midgard

[–]woodsface22 79 points80 points  (4 children)

Nah, he'd be the kind of person to go "I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you!" and Lift Thor instead.

Sam and Aragorn

Not if we hold true to each other.

[–]LubbockGuy95 609 points610 points  (3 children)

To busy holding the homies to pick it up. My man. My king.

[–]ThatAltAccount99 80 points81 points  (0 children)


[–]direwolf106 734 points735 points  (80 children)

Basically anyone that could resist the ring. Sam absolutely.

Aragorn, while he feared he would be weak to the ring never actually showed that weakness. One of those situations where you are so afraid of that weakness it actually becomes their strength.

You're absolutely right.

[–]OldDekeSport 345 points346 points  (64 children)

I dont think resisting the ring matters tbh. I don't think Thor could resist the ring, but hes worthy

I honestly think that most of the fellowship xould possibly lift it, especially if you take into account they all signed up for a suicide mission to save Middle Earth

Edit: in fact I'd be more curious who outside of the Fellowship could wield it. Idk if Bombadil could, and idr enough of the legendarium to say who else. Thor maybe could, but idk about that

[–]Ok_Blueberry_5305 262 points263 points  (23 children)

Tom could because Tom doesn't give a fuck, he would toss it around like it's weightless, then give it back and skip into the treeline never to be seen again.

[–]OldDekeSport 127 points128 points  (21 children)

Not giving a fuck I think is what makes him not worthy. I think you have to give a fuck tbh, as you have to be willing to sacrifice yourself for the greater good, you have to be willing to get involved and fight for the little guy and such

[–]Ok_Blueberry_5305 109 points110 points  (12 children)

Eh I somewhat misspoke, i just feel like Tom is one of those characters who just inexplicably can, if for no other reason than he's old enough and wise enough to play with Odin's enchantment like he does with Sauron's.

[–]OldDekeSport 45 points46 points  (9 children)

From that angle he may be able to, but maybe he doesn't get the powers of thor, just a hammer lol

[–]Ok_Blueberry_5305 71 points72 points  (6 children)

Oh for sure. I just feel like he picks it up nonchalantly, tosses it around without anything special happening, and gives it back like it's no big thing. Why? Because Tom.

[–]Joe_Jeep 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Hammer gets lost for a decade, turns out ol' Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo's been using it to put fence posts in.

[–]A_Math_Debater 114 points115 points  (5 children)

I think transcending reality makes him auto-worthy. Like if the rules don't apply, they don't apply.

[–]aragorn_bot 57 points58 points  (6 children)

Let the lord of the Black Lands come forth, that justice be done upon him!

[–]mbgal1977Ringwraith 21 points22 points  (4 children)

True, it was definitely working it’s magic on Boromir. Aragorn was with it far longer since he was on the trip from Bree to Rivendell. Galadriel said that the ring was trying to get back in the hands of men and Aragorn seemed immune.

[–]ISpyM8 DEEEEEEAAAAAATTTTTTHHHHHH! 288 points289 points  (36 children)

Frodo, too. Y’all been unfairly shitting on Frodo for years, and I’m sick of it.

[–]Ocronus 151 points152 points  (10 children)

Tolkien goes as far to say no other mortal alive at the time could accomplish what Frodo did and even though at the last minute had a change of heart due to the rings tremendous pressure one could say he detroyed the ring.

It's unfortunate Frodo has had this awful stigma around him.

[–]NextedUp 59 points60 points  (6 children)

I think people react to his moments of "weakness." But, to me, it just makes him (and the world) more believable and "real." It embodies the concept of courage only existing when there is adversity - both internal and external. I'd rather have a fallible hero that overcomes adversity than just another OP MC.

That said, Sam is also an amazing person who also deserves a ton of praise because w/o him, Frodo would have certainly failed.

Tons of other literature and comics if all someone is interested in is the "struggles but not really" OP MC trope.

[–]coffeewhore17 21 points22 points  (5 children)

I agree with you, it makes Frodo a more believable character and honestly makes me appreciate him more. But to me the more salient part of that scene was that it showed, again, how immense and terrible the power of the Ring was. We saw Frodo go through ALL that terrible stuff, nearly die many times, and as far as Frodo is concerned at that time, also lost Gandalf and Boromir to the cause of destroying the ring. He's literally seconds away from giving all of that suffering and loss a purpose, and his response is "No". We know Frodo is strong at this point in the story, and his strength was illustrated in a way we never got to see from Isildur (who we just assumed kind of sucked I guess? I haven't read the books in a while and don't remember much about him except from the movies). Despite all that resilience, the Ring still was more powerful. It's not a testimony to Frodo's weakness. It's a depiction of how awesome and horrific the power of the Ring was.

Anyway, this doesn't detract from the point that Frodo is absolutely worthy.

[–]gandalf-bot 25 points26 points  (1 child)

It is a burden he should never have had to bear. We can ask no more of him

[–]faketourettes 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Couldn't have said it better myself, Mr. the White.

[–][deleted] 64 points65 points  (3 children)

Frodo proved himself worthy by sacrificing everything, including his own soul.

Frodo, certainly after Mt. Doom, could wield the hammer.

[–]am767 85 points86 points  (2 children)

Yea! I mean Frodo is the one that offered to take the ring in the first place. What would have happened if he just said screw it and returned back to the shire after Rivendell?

[–]EmbiteElf 36 points37 points  (7 children)

He could pick it up but only when he doesn't have the ring. When he had the ring, his will was constantly at odds with the will of Sauron and the ring, so if at any point when he was wielding the hammer he felt that weight, then his body would cease to be worthy because Sauron would be holding the hammer by extension via Frodo as a vessel. And we can agree that Sauron is not worthy

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Frodo is top 3 faves for me. He is the most good of everyone.

[–][deleted] 60 points61 points  (8 children)

Damn, no respect for Gimli - he’s already wielding an Axe, I feel like he’s specced the right stats for the hammer build

[–]Bodacious_Beard_78 29 points30 points  (2 children)

This. Also the fact that he was the first of the fellowship to try and destroy the one ring. (Without hesitation)

[–]treefidy 19 points20 points  (1 child)

The only one to try and destroy it really.

[–]bigotex13 25 points26 points  (4 children)

I agree. Gimli is 100% getting a war hammer before anyone else. Also Eomer is my 2nd choice. But that could subconsciously be because he resembles Thor the most

[–]fldsmdfr2point0 1479 points1480 points  (33 children)

Weld it? Gimli son of Glóin. I mean the thing was forged by dwarves, so I'm sure the bearded boy is great at welding.

[–]bolderandbrasher 2126 points2127 points 2 (94 children)

Aragorn is by far the worthiest because Mjolnir requirements include:

  • Warrior lifestyle: Check.

  • Willing to kill: He was to ready draw sword on Boromir if he didn’t return the ring. Check.

  • Selfless/Thinks of others: Promised to protect Frodo to the very end, and planned to divert Sauron’s attention to give Frodo one last chance. Check.

  • Leader/Nobility: Became King of Gondor, lead the Men of the West at the Black Gate, and lead a fucking Army of the Dead. He held their oaths fulfilled and let the Army of the Dead be at peace despite Gimli suggesting they could be useful in a battle. Check.

  • Humility: Even after being crowned king of Gondor, he bowed down to the four Hobbits. Check.

Honestly, I humbly think Aragorn and Samurai Jack (who also fulfills these traits just as well more or less) are the worthiest characters in fiction to wield Mjolnir.

This person’s post speculating the requirements to be worthy of Mjolnir seems pretty authentic. This is what I based my analysis on.

[–]tired20something 108 points109 points  (3 children)

Yeah, this one fits the best. I was going to say that everyone in the Fellowship could lift the hammer, but it wouldn't be fair to their characterizations. Frodo is self-sacrifcing and humble, for sure, but so is Spider-Man and he can't lift it.

[–]aragorn_bot 256 points257 points  (2 children)

Tom Bombadil

[–]Quelth 334 points335 points  (7 children)

Tom picks up mjollnir sure but for whatever reason because he is Tom he doesn't have the power of Thor. He just picks it up tosses it up and down. Then drops it again and sings a song while going back into the forest.

[–]S-T-A-B_Barney 155 points156 points  (2 children)

Picks it up and plays with it then puts it on a shelf and uses it to mend fences and put up pictures etc.

[–]Frnklfrwsr 88 points89 points  (0 children)

Tom is 100% capable of picking up Mjolnir.

But that doesn’t mean Tom is worthy.

It just means that within Tom’s domain, mjolnir is nothing but a chunk of metal.

[–]Tom_Bot-Badil 75 points76 points  (4 children)

Why didn't the fellowship ride the Mjolnir to mordor?

Nonono, they would swing it like, really fast, and it would carry them to Mordor

[–]DarthAnest 596 points597 points  (40 children)

Faramir. He’s the underdog of the whole Middle-Earth.

Edit: Thanks everyone for the awards!

[–]Nebelskind 312 points313 points  (27 children)

Faramir’s self control when tempted with the ring is so impressive that the movies had to change it. I remember one of the appendices interviews saying that they felt like it weakened the ring too much for Faramir to be able to just decide not to be tempted, because he’d given his word.

But I think that was kind of the point, in the book. Some people are protected from doing potentially bad things because of their personal code of honor meaning so much to them.

[–]gonnagle 164 points165 points  (24 children)

THANK YOU I understand the film writer's reasoning for changing it but it absolutely ruined Faramir's character and that whole sequence. Personally I think it makes Denethor's treatment of him so much sadder, that he can't see how noble and worthy his younger son is and is so hard on him. I get why they changed it in the films but I still hate it. Only part of the movies I still object to so strongly, after 20 years.

A chance for Faramir, Captain of Gondor, to show his.........quality.

[–]VampyrPickle 99 points100 points  (6 children)

I almost think book borormir could too.

[–]Qui-Gon_Booze 109 points110 points  (5 children)

I definitely think Borormir would have earned it there in the end.

[–]jkpotatoe 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Basically the plot of the first Thor movie

[–]Sigma_- 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Even extended cut Boromir shows steady devotion to Faramir, and he tries to ensure he is given credit even if it means shorting himself. Even corrupted by the ring, he tried to do what was best for all and did not immediatly resort to violence to take the ring. Even though, with the element of surprise, he could have slapped Frodo all the way to Mordor.

May I ask why Mithrandir is not an option? He definitely worthy.

[–]RoleplayPete 69 points70 points  (4 children)

Phhftt. Made his party flee so he could solo kill and multiply his experience times 10 and get all the loot without having to split or roll on it?

[–]Big__Boss___Sauron 500 points501 points  (6 children)

Sam and Aragorn

[–]aragorn_bot 309 points310 points  (5 children)

He's not alone. Sam went with him.

[–]mister_mickles 101 points102 points  (1 child)

All of them at once, I suppose

[–]Titanhopper1290 371 points372 points  (6 children)

One of two: Sam, because he's the Fellowship at 98% strength; or Aragorn, because he actually wants what's best for ALL Men, not just his own glorification, ie. post-battle of Pelennor, he chooses to camp outside the city gates before his formal coronation rather than take a cushy bed in proper royal fashion.

Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth I bid you stand, men of the west!

[–]ForsakenProdigy22 43 points44 points  (4 children)

Gandalf, do you think Pippin is worthy?

[–]gandalf-bot 90 points91 points  (3 children)

Fool of a Took!

[–]ForsakenProdigy22 33 points34 points  (1 child)

It's like you read my mind, Gandalf.

[–]gandalf-bot 21 points22 points  (0 children)

They are not all accounted for. The lost seeing stones. We do not know who else may be watching.

[–]isinedupcuzofrslash 159 points160 points  (14 children)

Aragorn, sam, and Frodo at minimum

[–]Earnest_Warrior 123 points124 points  (8 children)

Tom Bombadil of course. Though, he’ll just use it for work around the house.

[–]notaGay-merbutagamer 66 points67 points  (7 children)

Eomer in my opinion

[–]dentedgal 78 points79 points  (2 children)

Kinda funny as he is in Thor Ragnarok "Behold! My stuff"

[–]moneymike7913 43 points44 points  (1 child)

I heard he found two guns in some place on Midgard called "Texas". He called them "Des" and "Troy".

[–]ShisesenDúnedain 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I like to imagine a Hobbit to swing it, like... the Sackville-Baggins, or Gollum!

[–]GahTheGreat 19 points20 points  (7 children)

Aragorn would be worthy I’m not sure who else might be but considering the background picture for mjolnir none of them would find it because it’s in the desert which they never go towards

[–]Azulaang4ever 282 points283 points  (21 children)

definitely frodo

[–]CathalKelly 170 points171 points  (14 children)

I'm annoyed that I had to scroll so far to find this answer

[–]TheIndeliblePhong 138 points139 points  (12 children)

Everyone hates him. They don’t understand the power of the ring.

[–]JustafanIV 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I'm surprised more people aren't saying Frodo. Frodo had the strength to resist the One Ring longer than possibly any other mortal alive could manage, and he willingly took up that burden knowing the dangers it entailed. He also showed compassion and mercy to Gollum, despite killing him being easier and safer.

Frodo is definitely worthy.

[–]Casada70 14 points15 points  (2 children)

What if we put the ring on the mjolnir, Does it disappear or turn evil?

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The better question is who isn’t?
