Smaug - Lord of the Rings

Smaug is a fictional male Dragon who works for Dwarves of Erebor in the Lord of the Rings franchise. He has been portrayed on screen by Benedict Cumberbatch. Smaug is the main atagonist in the Hobbit stories. At the beginning of Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey, he takes up residence in Erebor, the Lonely Mountain. As the dragon made the mountain his residence, the original occupants of the mountain were forced to flee.

Smaug

Like other dragons in other versions such as Kilgharrah, the dragon has an ability to talk English and communicate with its enemies. Smaug comes across as quite an intelligent and cunning dragon. For most of Smaug`s time in Erebor, he is asleep under all the gold that the Dwarves have fashioned into medals and currency.

Only a Black Arrow fired at a dragon can kill it. Step forward Bard the bowman who takes up the challenge and fires the Black Arrow that finally slays the dragon. All the dwarves do is to wake Smaug up from his slumber, converse with Bilbo Baggins and then he flies off to destroy the nearby human settlement of Laketown. In World of Warcraft, there is a Hunter spell called Black Arrow which is a nod to the ultimate dragon slaying weapon. However, unlike dragons in Warcraft, Smaug is not able to turn himself into a human. He can shoot flames as his main attack weapon.
