What Makes Him Pure Good?

  • While not above impatient jabs or petty insults, he never antagonizes Thorin Oakenshield or Pippin Took more than what they warrant.

  • He convinced Bilbo Baggins to join the company of Thorin and be their burglar.
  • Gandalf kills the three trolls who kidnapped the company with sunlight. He consistently shows Thorin the benefit of Bilbo; by the end of the first film, Thorin realizes Bilbo's use.
  • He gave Bilbo his sword and convinced Thorin to keep the one he found in spite of it's Elvish origin.
  • He brought the company to Rivendell for shelter, where the Elves supply knowledge of their swords, the map and what to do. As a result the company knew they had to arrive at the mountain by a set time.
  • He tells the White Council of Sauron's eventual return. He also buys time for the dwarves to escape Rivendell to not be questioned by Saruman.

  • Gandalf braves into Dol Guldur itself to fight Azog and Sauron. Telling Radaghst to get the White Council.
    • In the extended cut, Gandalf met Thrain and attempted to rescue him. Additionally, Thrain confirmed Gandalf's suspicions of Smaug and Sauron being allies.

  • He tells Frodo and Sam to leave the Shire to meet Aragorn to be given further instructions. He also tells Sam to take care of Frodo.

  • Plots to defeat Sauron with Aragorn.
  • In the extended cut, he didn't get mad at the Mouth of Sauron when he claimed Frodo died. He also didn't take back the mythril armor when close to the Mouth, unlike in the books where Gandalf becomes spiteful at the Mouth and does those things.
  • He partakes in the Battle of the Black Gate. He gets a moth to summon the Eagles. The Eagles save Frodo and Sam.
  • He crowns Aragorn as king of Gondor.
