Lord Of The Rings: Every Death Ranked From Worst To Best

13. The Mouth Of Sauron

Film: The Return of the King (extended) How he died: Decapitated by Aragorn The mouth of Sauron is probably the most horrifying thing about the trilogy. He is one scary dude in major need of some vaseline and Aragorn's execution of him was a very bold move because it was essentially a sacrifice. They were outnumbered and were attempting to buy Frodo enough time to reach Mount Doom and destroy the ring; but either way, the death of Sauron's physical form showed that good had something worth fighting for. Even if it was hopeless.
