Hurin (Tolkien) ------------> Moved up from top of lower tier. He killed 70 trolls when it was him vs. an army, and these weren't weak D&D trolls.

I've read it as 70 orcs and trolls combined, but given the orc arms still stick to him when he chops them down it's still impressive. In any case "the mightiest of warriors of mortal Men".

"This last I say to you, thrall Morgoth," said Hurin, "and it comes not from the lore of the Eldar, but is put into my heart this hour. You are not the Lord of Men, and shall not be, though all Arda and Menel fall in your dominion. Beyond the Circles of the World you shall not pursue those who refuse you."
