The Ambush of the Wargs was a sudden battle between the Warg-riders of Isengard and the Rohirrim.

Portrayal in adaptations

This battle takes place only in Peter Jackson's film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

When the refugees and Rohan's militia from Edoras marched to Helm's Deep, they were ambushed by Warg riders led by Sharku. Háma, Théoden's bodyguard, is killed at the beginning of the battle. After a short battle, the Wargs were routed, and Aragorn mortally wounded Sharku before toppling over a cliff and into a river below. He was believed to have perished, but he survived, and arrived later at Helm's Deep after spotting the oncoming Army of Isengard.
