I’m sorry, I know he carries the “burden” of the ring, but did he really have to be so useless? He can’t defend himself, he’s always almost getting killed and then has to be saved by everyone, and all he does is cry and whine. Sam is the true hero of LOTR.

I hate him. He is constantly moaning or slowing everyone down. Samwise has to look after Frodo as well as go on this crazy adventure and face all the same problems as Frodo before CARRYING HIM UP THE MOUNTAIN! And then at the end, everyone acts like Frodo is the greatest hero! No! He was absolutely the worst of all the hobbits in the trilogy.
