Narzug was a member of the Hunter Orcs searching for Thorin's company of dwarves in the film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. His father was called "Norzug", who died in a battle between Orcs, Elves, and Dwarves. Norzug was killed by killed by his own killer's (Thranduil's) son and heir, Legolas, and the future King Under the Mountain, Thorin II Oakenshield, who had vowed to avenge Thorin's brother, Frerin's death.

The character is not in the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien; he was created for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit film trilogy. He is also the only orc of the trilogy who manages to speak in the Common Speech.

Portrayal in adaptations Edit

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Edit

Narzug the captured orc

In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Narzug operates as one of Azog's lieutenants. Later he accompanies Bolg as he tries to hunt down Thorin Oakenshield and the Company, but is captured by Tauriel and Legolas in Mirkwood after attempting to shoot Legolas in the back, as the elf watches the Dwarves being carried further down the river. Narzug is killed by Thranduil, who beheads him after a contentious interrogation session during which he had taunted Tauriel about the impending death by poison of "the black-haired archer", who'd been shot with a morgul arrow from Bolg (by a morgul bow), and warns Thranduil about a building power in the south, whom he calls "The One". In the same hour, he meets his demise there.

LEGO Narzug

Narzug is a unlockable character in LEGO The Hobbit: The Video Game. He can be found near Forest River, next to the pier. He wields a bone-crusher instead of a normal Orc scimitar.
Moreover, his interrogation scene was missing. He only appears once, along with Bolg. He convinced Azog to attack Thorin's Company in Beorn's house. In the film, Fimbul is the only Orc who convinced Azog.
