Nameless Things

Literature DictionaryTolkiens Middle-Earth Dictionary
Unknown creatures at the roots of the world.

"Far, far below the deepest delvings of the Dwarves, the world is gnawed by nameless things."
(Words of Gandalf from The Two Towers III 5, The White Rider)

The secret and very ancient creatures that dwell in the dark depths of the world. Gandalf came upon them in the depths beneath Moria, but would say nothing of them to his companions. All we know of them is that they gnawed dark tunnels far beneath the earth, through which Gandalf escaped from the depths of the chasm beneath Khazad-dûm.
