If you flood the greatest warrior in the world with loads of enemies, then he will eventually go down, just by their weight alone. Look what happened to Hurin in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. He was a mighty warrior to be sure, but the bodies (or pieces of bodies) of his enemies eventually weighed him down so much that he couldn't fight, and was taken captive.
But Melkor also was there, and he came to the house of Fanor, and there he slew Finw King of the Noldor before his doors, and spilled the first blood in the Blessed Realm; for Finw alone had not fled from the horror of the Dark.
