Plus Tolkein said he believed Sam to be the real hero of the story.

Surprise, most modern fantasy is based off Tolkien.

Yea she totally ripped off Tolkein.

It's not like these archetypes have been consistent throughout literature since classical times.

It's not like these archetypes date back to the mythologies of various different cultures around the world.

Yea Tolkein should have trademarked everything.

Yeah, Sam is useless. Except I don't remember Ron fighting and beating a giant goddamn spider, slaying dozens of uruks in a tower single handedly in order to save Harry, and carrying him up a goddamn active volcano.

Characters appear the same because they follow character archetypes. What really matters is the actual storyline and events. Thats like saying all cars copy eachother because they have the same type of parts.

J R R Tolkien actually considered Sam the true hero of the series. He always supported Frodo; risked his life for everyone else on many occasions, gave the very last water they had to Frodo just to ease his suffering and was the only one who was able to resist the ring's corruption.   
   
Calling Sam a loser is like calling Gandalf useless.

It all comes down to preference   
   
Lord of the rings: Badass little people literally go through hell to destroy the one thing that could bring about the end of the world.His friends saving cities along the way as well as commanding armies of the dead,surviving impossible odds and just generally being as 			*******		 metal as possible   
   
   
Hurry puter: I lived in a closet most of my life and now some guy without a nose wants to blow up a school and people expect me to kill him with a tiny twig that shoots rainbows

At least Ron got some from not 1, but 2 girls.

Sam was just Frodo's bottom bitch.
#76 to #71 - fivefs (08/14/2014) [-]
Sam goes home gets married to the girl he was crushing on but lacked the confidence to talk to before the journey and they have kids, Frodo is to much of a bitch to function and ***** off on a boat with the elves.

In all fairness, both are lame books for little kids. They don't deserve a tenth of the attention they still get. I guess nostalia fags can't let their childhood go.

Tolkien and his amazing books created modern fantasy, so go 			****		 yourself.   
I'm not even exaggerating. No one had ever thought of elves or dwarves like he described them and orcs hadn't even existed as an idea until LotR.   
So again, go 			****		 yourself. Tolkien's work deserves all of the attention it gets, it's simply timeless.

Okay ******* dokey, those are either; archetypes that can be found in every classic story, orrrrrrr just classic ******* phobias. I bet Rowling stole dragons from Tolkien too.
Christ on Christmas tree almost all stories within the same genera are similar on fundamental levels.
