The battle between Gandalf and Balrog across the Bridge of Khazad Dum is one of the most remarkable duel scene in the movie “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”. Though the feeling was David vs Goliath, the two warriors showed their wrath. Gandalf knew that he faces a real and deadly danger when when he confronts the Balrog on the Bridge of Moria. Still, he sacrifices himself to ensure the escape of his companions.
On the other hand, aside from fighting, Gandalf’s speech to the Balrog is extremely hair-raising. “You cannot pass,” he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. “I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.”
Because of this nerve-racking scene, many illustrations, artists and graphic designers created their own illustrations of the battle. Without further ado, here’s a collection of Gandalf vs Balrog artworks depicting the scene in The Fellowship of the Ring where Gandalf the Gray faces off with the Balrog of Morgoth across the Bridge of Khazad Dum.
