The White makes me think of either Gandalf or Saruman. According to the movies, couldn't one say that Saruman the White gave life to the Uruk Hai, definitely dark beings/things?

Not the best of guesses, but I have to think a bit more to come up with something better...

You are both right. I had Saruman and the Uruks in mind, but I did not think of Melkor!

Well, the left, right part is of course reffering to feet.

Iron is used for weapons aka death and for making tools.

The last part I could never figure out, that is why I did not guess the first time.

Score 2 for the ninja. How about this...

I saw my master, but not his successor. You can see my prey, but only ab the domen.

sounds goofy, but pretty easy.

Well, it doesn't quite fit the number of stars in there, but I'll take a crack at it anyway... is it Samwise? I'm fairly sure it's wrong, but since there are no other ideas...

How about Ungoliant? The master=Morgoth, his successor aka apprentice=Sauron. The daughter=Shelob. I dont' quite get the "ab the domen"-part, but it may hint about the abdomen...

Correct! now, to clear something up: you can see my prey, but only ab the domen. as in you could see her dead prey at her abdomen.
Do you have one in mind?

Sorry I'm late!

Oh, sorry, I just noticed that I was the reason this thread died! I'll get you a new one, but I can't guarantee the quality of it... Here it goes:

Two legs left
One all right
Befriended with him whose fate
was dark as the night

Pretty easy, I think. Good luck!

Sorry, that's not it... It's more of a book-riddle than a movie-riddle. Plus, it would be a bit too obvious if I gave you a riddle with the answer Gothmog Not that I'm in any way related to that 3rd age scum Keep guessing!

Thank you sir!

This one's either dead easy or really hard:

At the end of the third
I was there with no word
The last of my kin

When the last ship it sailed
On the grey shores I stayed
They never saw me again

And I'm still here today
But i'm keeping away
From all the strife and the din!

Makes me think of Arwen. But at the same time I get the feeling that I'm not thinking wide enough...

I have an idea

It might be Durin VII

He was there at the end of the third Thorin (descendant of Thorin III Stonehelm)
He was the last Durin
The Elves didn't see him again
And as some creatures in ME believe, Dwarves return to stone after their death, explaining the last verses
