They all inherited something "great" from their relatives?
Dior: the Silmaril
Frodo: The Ring (+Bag-End and all)
Aragorn: shards of Narsil (and the ring of Barahir)
Christopher Tolkien: the scripts of his father!

They are all described as "heirs":

Dior - Thingol's heir

Frodo - Bilbo's heir (to Bag End)

Aragorn - Isildur's heir

Christopher Tolkien - don't know for sure, but presumably heir to his father's works.

Nope, that's not what I'm looking for.

Fili and Thorin could be added to the list, and there are two others that I could add, but they would give it away.

All three wore blue!

Manwe - clothing and sceptre (and eyes)

Tom - a blue feather in his hat and I believe his coat was also blue

Kili - his cloak and hood (the same with Thorin and Fili I think)

That's kinda far fetched, but you never know. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Spot on Durelin. The other two would, of course, have been Alatar and Pallando.

Not so far-fetched after all. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Were they all killed by Dwarves? Azog and Dior were, but I don't know about Vardamir.

It's Deor not Dior, and Deor was not killed by a dwarf. So far I'm stumped...

Oh, I'd not come across Deor before ...

Are they all kings?

Azog was a goblin-king. Vardamir was a king of Numenor. Deor was a king of Rohan.

The answer relates to the deaths of other characters ...

They all were near/held/heard the last words of someone who died?

Beren - Finrod
Aragorn - Boromir

They did indeed all receive the last words of those that you have identified.

Gandalf/Mithrandir fell from the bridge
Nienor threw herself over when she discovered she had married her brother
Saeros fell after fighting with Turin
but I'm not sure about Pippin

Ok I'll give a clue.

Mithrandir returned this way
Nienor found Turin this way
Saeros was forced to be this way
Pippin took a suggestion to be this way

Hopefully that will rip the cloak off this question for you.

I hestitate to give this answer, but it seems to fit.

Did they all get naked? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I think that when Gandalf first returned as the White he was unclothed.

Following her brainwashing by Glaurung, Nienor ran naked through the Forest of Brethil and was found by Turin lying upon the mound of Haudh-en-Elleth.

Saeros was forced by Turin to ran naked while he pursued him.

Not to sure about Pippin, but presumably he disrobed for his bath in the house at Crickhollow.

They were all naked.

Naked, Gandalf returned as the White.

Nienor was found naked by Turin.

Saeros was forced by Turin to run naked.

Pippin took that particular suggestion after the hobbits were rescued from the Barrow-Wight by Tom Bombadil.

Well, TheSaucepanMan got it first. I suppose you can count the bath but I was thinking of the Barrow-Wight incident. Incidentally all of the Hobbits got naked (outside of the bath) at some point in LotR.

you said "Naked"...hehehe [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

What do the following have in common:

Elrond
Galadriel
Celebrian
Earendil

(It's not that Elrond is Earendil's son, Celebrian is Galadriel's daughter, and Elrond and Celebrian are married)
