I think I would modify your list. Sauron would be top of all, followed by Gandalf the White… but Elrond and Galadriel are clearly misplaced as well as the Witch King and Shelob. I would re arrange it...

I think youre overrating Smaug’s power. Yes, he was a dragon, could incinerate great bodies of land, etc. But you’re forgetting the strength of his enemies. For instance, as it has been said before....

The kingship of the Noldor? When was it offered to him? Gil-Galad had no sons, that’s why there were no more High King of the Noldor in Middle Earth. Not because Elrond rejected it.

Exactly. Lothlorien was not invaded thanks to the courage of the elves that lived there, but mainly thanks to the "secret power" that dwelt in the land (i.e. Galadriel).

Galadriel was able to see the thoughts of Sauron that concerned the elves. Ergo, I dont think that she would have been able to see what he thought of the hobbits or of men.
