Lord Of The Rings Meets The Witcher: 5 Couples That Would Work (& 5 That Wouldn’t)

When it comes to worlds of magic and monsters, swords and sorcery, nothing quite matches up to The Witcher and The Lord of the Rings. Each multimedia franchise has its own unique array of characters. And some cross-world couples would work better than others.

Playing matchmaker between the two franchises would actually be a lot of fun. That being said, it would also be quite dangerous. There are a lot of people with some impressive powers in these worlds. If those relationships don’t work out, there might actually be reality-ending consequences. It’s probably best to be careful with some of these pairings.

As the daughter of Elrond of Rivendell, Arwen holds a place of prominence among other Elves. She is a formidable warrior as well as more than a little adept in the mystical ways of her people. As such, she and Vilgefortz might seem like a good couple on paper.

A powerful mage, Vilgefortz is an impressive warrior and seemingly on the side of the good guys. But when he killed one of his allies on the battlefield, that loyalty is called into question. Arwen would have no time or interest in that type of person.

If there is one person in the world of The Witcher who anyone should have thought twice about messing with, it is Queen Calanthe. The Lioness of Cintra is feared as one of the greatest, and most fierce, warriors around.

Elrond is seemingly a lot more reserved than Queen Calanthe, but he is no less of a warrior. The two of them would absolutely tear up the battlefield together, then rule all of Middle-earth and Cintra side by side.

First known as Gandalf the Grey, the powerful wizard was killed and returned to Middle-earth as Gandalf the White. He stood at the forefront of the battle against Sauron and Mordor. Without him, Middle-earth’s entire defense strategy would have fallen apart.

Tissaia de Vries found herself in a similar position. A powerful sorceress, Tissaia is also the Rectoress of Aretuza. As interesting as it would be to see Gandalf and Tissaia together, they probably would have just stepped on each other’s toes a lot.
