(Going too near Isengard would risk a fight with Saruman, who is as dangerous as a Balrog, and, unlike the Balrog, actually HAD bested him before.) A Balrog (/ ˈ b æ l r ɒ ɡ /) is a powerful fictional monster in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth.It first appeared in print in his high fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings, where the Fellowship of the Ring encounter one known as Durin's Bane in the Mines of Moria.Balrogs appear also in Tolkien's The Silmarillion and other posthumously published books.
