Whips of Balrogs
Balrog Whip in the New Line film
Whips of Balrogs. All Balrogs carried a long, fiery, terrifying whip around with them. They used it to kill off enemies. In the First Age, Balrogs, including Gothmog, carried around a large black axe along with their fiery whip. They could burn hundreds of men, Elves, Dwarves and Ents with one strike of their whip. In the Third Age, the Balrog of Moria used his whip to grab Gandalf and pull him off the Bridge of Khazad-Dum. It is unknown what became of his whip when he died.
