Bilbo then suggested that dragon's were softer underneath, particularly in the chest: in response, and in an act of sheer vanity, Smaug rolled over and claimed that Bilbo's information was false and outdated.
But Bilbo, while loudly praising Smaug's jewel-encrusted underside, saw something crucial, thinking:. Bilbo had obtained the information that he had needed.
He fled up the passage, leaving behind a dragon infuriated by the notion of "revenge", and had the hair on the back of his head and heels singed off.
When Bilbo returned to the door-step he regaled the dwarves with the story of his conversation with the dragon whilst the thrush was listening.
Smaug left his lair once more and smashed the mountainside with strikes of his tail, trapping Thorin and Company inside the secret passage.
Realizing that the Lake-men of Esgaroth must have helped the intruders - reinforced by Bilbo calling himself the " Barrel-rider ," Smaug resolved to attack and destroy the town as a punitive measure.
He approached it in a rage. The waters around it turned red but Smaug dared not get too close as the water would quench his fire; as the Lake-men had cut the bridges, Smaug flew above attacking and setting the town aflame, destroying the Great House with a swipe of his tail.
The dragon's scales were impervious to the arrows of the defenders, but the thrush had flown to the town and informed Bard - a descendent of Girion , Lord of Dale - of the bare spot in Smaug's armour.
He was then able to kill Smaug by firing the Black Arrow directly into the vulnerable spot of his left breast. As Smaug fell he crashed into and destroyed Esgaroth.
After Smaug's death, Thorin and Company claimed the treasure as theirs by birthright. This created a conflict with Bard and the Elvenking of Mirkwood , who each wanted a portion of the treasure as reimbursement for huge damage that Smaug had inflicted upon them.
Thorin refused to share the treasure and had every intention of going to war with the Elves of Mirkwood and men of Esgaroth to defend his right to the treasure.
However the sudden attack by the armies of Bolg brought the forces of the free peoples of Middle-earth together in the Battle of Five Armies.
Following the death of Smaug a new Lake-town was built further north; Smaug's bones could be seen from the shore but the people were always fearful of it and no one dared go in the water to retrieve the gems or gold.
Like all dragons, Smaug - described by Thorin as " a most specially greedy, strong and wicked worm "  - loves to hoard gold with a meticulous knowledge of his own collection as evidenced by his immediate spotting of the missing cup.
In Letter , Tolkien noted his lack of enthusiasm for the dragon in Beowulf. Instead he stated his preference for the dragon-like creature Fafnir from the late Norse versions of the Sigurd-story.
Indeed Tolkien wrote that Smaug's character owed much to Fafnir. Deriving from the same Old English and Germanic roots as smial and Smeagol ,  the name Smaug is "the past tense of the primitive Germanic verb Smugan , to squeeze through a hole".
In a very early manuscript of The Hobbit Smaug was known as Pryftan. Indeed John D. Rateliff refers to this manuscript as The Pryftan Fragment.
Smaug named "Slag" in The Hobbit film. Smaug in the The Hobbit film. Smaug in the video game The Hobbit. Smaug in The Hobbit film series. Page Talk Edit History.

Smaug was "the greatest of the dragons of his day", already centuries old at the time he was first recorded. He heard rumours of the great wealth of the Dwarf -kingdom of Erebor , which had a prosperous trade with the Northmen of Dale.
After driving the Dwarves out of their stronghold, Smaug occupied the interior of the mountain for the next years, guarding a vast hoard of treasure.
He destroyed the town of Dale; the men retreated to the Long Lake, where they built Lake-town of houses on stilts, surrounded by water to guard against the dragon.
Tolkien, The Hobbit . Gandalf realized that Smaug could pose a serious threat if used by Sauron. Assuming that Smaug would not recognize the scent of a hobbit , Gandalf recruited the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to join the quest.
Upon reaching Erebor, the Dwarves sent Bilbo into Smaug's lair, and he was initially successful in stealing a beautiful golden cup as Smaug slept fitfully.
Knowing the contents of the treasure hoard which he had slept upon for centuries to the ounce, Smaug quickly realized the cup's absence upon his awakening and searched for the thief on the Mountain.
Unsuccessful, he returned to his hoard to lie in wait. Having been nearly killed in the dragon's search, the Dwarves sent Bilbo down the secret tunnel a second time.
Smaug sensed Bilbo's presence immediately, even though Bilbo had rendered himself invisible with the One Ring , and accused the Hobbit correctly of trying to steal from him.
During his discourse with the dragon, Bilbo noticed a small bare patch on Smaug's jewel-encrusted underbelly, and narrowly escaped. A thrush overheard Bilbo's account of the meeting, and learnt of the bare patch on Smaug's underside.
Still enraged, Smaug flew south to Laketown and set about destroying it. The townsmen's arrows and spears proved useless against the dragon's armoured body.
The thrush told Bard the Bowman of Smaug's one weak spot, a bare patch on the dragon's belly. With his last arrow, Bard killed Smaug by shooting into this place.
What magnificence to possess a waistcoat of fine diamonds! He did not know that the hobbit had already caught a glimpse of his peculiar under-covering on his previous visit, and was itching for a closer view for reasons of his own.
The dragon rolled over. Tolkien made Smaug "more villain than monster ", writes author and biographer Lynnette Porter; he is "devious and clever, vain and greedy, overly confident and proud.
The Tolkien scholar Tom Shippey notes the "bewilderment" that Smaug spreads: he is enchanted by gold and treasure, and those who come into contact with his powerful presence, what Tolkien describes as "the effect that dragon-talk has on the inexperienced", similarly become bewildered by greed.
He speaks in fact with the characteristic aggressive politeness of the British upper class, in which irritation and authority are in direct proportion to apparent deference or uncertainty.
He was a prominent scholar of the Old English poem Beowulf , on which he gave a lecture at the British Academy in Stuart Lee and Elizabeth Solopova analyse the parallels between Smaug and the unnamed Beowulf dragon.
Smaug's ability to speak, the use of riddles, the element of betrayal, his enemy's communication via birds, and his weak spot could all have been inspired by the talking dragon Fafnir of the Völsunga saga.
If the clue were in the riddle, the answer, Day suggests, would be that this was a reference to the dragon's name. Megissogwon was the spirit of wealth, protected by an armoured shirt of wampum beads.
Mama the woodpecker sings to Hiawatha where Megissogwon's only weak point is, the tuft of hair on his head, just as Tolkien's thrush tells Bard where to shoot at Smaug.
Tolkien created numerous pencil sketches and two pieces of more detailed artwork portraying Smaug. The latter were a detailed ink and watercolour labelled Conversation with Smaug and a rough coloured pencil and ink sketch entitled Death of Smaug.
Smaug was voiced and interpreted with performance capture by Benedict Cumberbatch in Peter Jackson 's three-part adaptation of The Hobbit.
Weta Digital employed its proprietary "Tissue" software, which was honoured in with a "Scientific and Engineering Award" from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to make the dragon as realistic as possible.
In the first film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey , the audience sees only his legs, wings, and tail, and his eye, which is showcased in the final scene of the film.
Smaug is a topic of discussion among the White Council as Gandalf's reason to support Thorin Oakenshield 's quest.
In an interview with Joe Letteri, Smaug's design was changed to the form shown in the film after the crew saw how Benedict Cumberbatch performed Smaug while moving around on all four limbs.
He is killed by Bard with a black arrow and his body falls on the boat carrying the fleeing Master of Lake-town. It is later revealed that Smaug's attack on Erebor was all part of Sauron's design, meaning that Smaug and Sauron were in league with each other.
Smaug was considered one of the highlights of the second film of the series as well as his burning of Lake-Town in the third film ; several critics hailed him as cinema's greatest dragon.
Critics also praised the visual effects company Weta Digital and Cumberbatch's vocal and motion-capture performance for giving Smaug a fully realized personality, "hiss[ing] out his words with cold-blooded vitriol".
Francis de Wolff voiced the red dragon in the long-lost BBC radio dramatization. Robinson notes, the technology has allowed new fiction to be created.
The fantasy author Sandra Unerman called Smaug "one of the most individual dragons in fiction". In , scientists named a genus of southern African girdled lizards, Smaug.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Smaug disambiguation. Girion Lord of Dale is dead, and I have eaten his people like a wolf among sheep, and where are his sons' sons that dare approach me?
I kill where I wish and none dare resist. I laid low the warriors of old and their like is not in the world today. Then I was but young and tender.
Now I am old and strong, strong, strong, Thief in the Shadows! The dragon stopped short in his boasting. No blade can pierce me. Why, there is a large patch in the hollow of his left breast as bare as a snail out of its shell!
