Fellbeasts are giant, vicious flying creatures found in J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy novel, The Lord of the Rings. They also appeared in Peter Jackson's Middle-earth film series in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, appearing in the films The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

The Witch-King of Angmar and the other Nazgûl rode these creatures during the War of the Ring.


The fell beasts were described as large, winged creatures without feathers, similar to dragons that they could almost be mistaken for one. Its pinions were in between horned fingers; and its body gave off a stench. Fellbeasts resembled dragons but were large winged creatures that were bred by the Dark Lord Sauron for war purposes.

For the movie version, fell beasts are depicted as more Wyverns (dragon-like and serpentine creatures that walk on two legs), i.e. their heads appear more like a snake's and they don't have beaks, leading to the common misconception that they are dragons in the books; Tolkien definitely meant a pterosaur-like creature.
