Gentlemen, gentlemen! Can we all just have him as an "Outright Villain" or "Emotionless Villain", please? As for Bentonfill, do something different instead of being obsessed with the "Complete Monster" category like it's the only thing in the world that matters to you, alright? Use your brain power & be creative. Thank you all very much. :-) - Best regards B1bl1kal Don't cha judge me! 16:30, January 31, 2013 (UTC)

Main Antagonist in The Hobbit Trilogy
Definitely. I have plenty of evidence.
- Sauron is the Dark Lord of Middle-earth, not Smaug.
- In one point, it is hinted that Smaug works for Sauron.
- Sauron is more powerful than Smaug, and far more evil.
- Sauron did bigger crimes than Smaug did.
Um, to be fair that isn't how you define what is and isn't the primary or secondary antagonist of a story. An antagonist isn't necessarily even a villain, really. An antagonist is defined as a character opposing the protagonist, and seeing that the protagonist of The Hobbit was Bilbo, and he doesn't really interact at all with Sauron, Sauron doesn't count as the Primary Antagonist of that trilogy. Sure, he may have a more large-scale villainous plan, but in the actual story he doesn't really play that big a role as the antagonist, per se.
