Club-foot was the nickname given to Brandir the Lame by Túrin during an argument.

After Túrin had slain the dragon Glaurung, Túrin returned to Nen Girith to see Níniel and bring tidings to the people of Ephel Brandir that the threat of the dragon had passed. Brandir told Túrin that Níniel was dead and that she was, in fact, Túrin's sister Nienor; in the following argument Túrin called Brandir Club-foot before cursing him and eventually killing him.[1][2]
