Narzug was an Orc who was a part of Azog's pack. Narzug was invented by Warner Bros. for Hobbit film series, where he was portrayed by Ben Mitchell.


When the pack had caught up with Thorin and his Company during their escape from the Woodland Realm, Narzug was ultimately taken prisoner by Legolas and Tauriel, and they took him with them back to the Elvenking's Halls. Thranduil, promising to spare his life, interrogated about why the pack had been pursuing the company of Dwarves, and Narzug claimed that his master was in the service of the "One"; this caused some alarm to the Elven-king, triggering him to cut off Narzug's head. Legolas complained to his father that he promised otherwise to the captive, with Thranduil dismissing it, saying that he did a favor to the Orc.[1]
