One of the major characters in J.R.R Tolkien
's Lord of the Rings that doesn't deserve half the credit for the destruction of the ring. He does pretty much nothing but get rescued by Samwise Gamgee
after being on verge of death.
If anything, it's Sam who should be the most recognized member of the Fellowship of the Ring. He's the one that kept Frodo alive in the journey, tried to convince Frodo that Gollum
was actually evil, and carried Frodo up to Mt. Doom.
Frodo: *gets stabbed by Nazgul
Sam: OH NUHH MR FRODO!!!
Frodo: *gets poisoned by the huge spider thing and passes out*
Sam: (to the spider thing) OH NO YOU DONT TOUCH HIM
Frodo: *stares at the ring*
Sam: Destroy it Mr Frodo!!
Frodo: No. It's mine. MY PRECIOUS
Gollum: *leaps on Frodo*
Frodo: *puts ring on and turns invisible*
Gollum: *bites Frodo's finger off*
Frodo: HOLY FUUUUUKKKKKK!!!!!
Gollum: *jumps up and down with the ring*
Frodo: *pushes Gollum into the volcano probably more for his lost finger than the destruction of the ring*
Meanwhile, at the gates of Mordor
Either Merry or Pippin or someone else I can't remember who: Frodo did it!!!! *no mention of Sam*
