The Stone Giants from the Hobbit have decided to put their animosity towards one another aside and have collectively agreed to open a can of stone-cold [email protected]$$ on Middle Earth.

Who can stop them? Would even an alliance of all Sauron's forces with all men/elves/dwarves along with Ents, Balrogs and Smaug be enough to stop the giants?

Negative, they'd rule the Earth unless they get wtfpwned from some serious magic by the wizards.

Even Gandalf didn't attempt to stop them in the Misty Mountains; while it is true the Stone Giants weren't attacking them, Gandalf faced down an irate Balrog but just ran from the giants...

Maybe no wizard is powerful enough to take them on???

I'd imagine that the wizards would realize that they'd need to focus their powers or something. Gandalf had a hard enough time with one Balrog. In the end i'd see it happening like this. Or dig up some ancient artifact of power and use it, tho I'm not to sure how powerful Middle Earth magic can get.

Vensai
Not sure if it's possible to permanently destroy them.

Omega Vision
Stone Giants from the movie, or from the book?

Either way, we don't really know a lot about them, like if the movie giants can even leave the mountains. As for the book, they were mentioned so briefly that we don't know how big they were. We know that they're certainly large enough to hurl huge stones around and make noise like thunder, but that's not much to go on.

Vensai
Yeah. The giants don't have enough feats to show that they could take on everybody in Middle Earth.

I think they could definitely take on middle earth- no place to hide if the earth is attacking

They dont have enough feats to warrant this.
They seemed quite powerful though.

You forget than Gandalf tried to run from the Balrog as well and told the others they could no nothing to stop the Balrog. The only reason I "facedown" the balrog was to save the others and keep the mission allive. He had ever intention of running from the balrog and not fighting him as well. I think a sufficient number of Balrogs.. Dragos.. Wizards..Ents.. and Witch-King but hordes of men... elves and dwarfs should be able to beat them soundly.

Lord Lucien
Yeah, all out battles and exterminating every threat has never been Gandalf's agenda. He has goals and he'll work to achieve them by ways that make sense, and if running makes more sense than risking obvious death, he'll do it. He's not in to pointless fighting and action scenes. Unlike a certain bad prequel.

Dolos
The Istari could bring down the Stone Giants with sorcery, but not in direct combat.

Apropos; the Maiar or Valar are the foremost creatures on Arda and could travel to Middle Earth just to stop the Stone Giants.

However, they could have stopped Melkor or Sauron as well.

Tulkas is physically stronger than Hercules, and laughed in Melkor's face when threatened. He's a Valar who's a wrestler with super-strength.

Lord Lucien
I had a dog named Tangent...

Sinious
Tulkas and Manwe would probably be enough to end them. If Valinor doesn't interfere though, middle-earth probably wouldn't be able to stop the (movie) giants.

forestlaw
They would rule the middle-earth probably. At least the movie giants.
