Question Why didnt the Mithril Vest NOT protect Frodo from shelob?

Alright we know Frodo has the Mithril vest on and everything, and it saved him from the cave trolls stabbing in fellowship, NOW...on ROTK when shelob stabbed Frodo with her stinger, shouldnt the Mithril vest save him again from the stabbing, why all of a sudden, hes hurt when hes stabbed by shelob with her stinger, but isnt when hes stabbed by the cave troll!

I mean..the mithril should of been thick enough to block the stab from shelob, leaving frodo un hurt

its been bugging me for a while now!

I say that's one of their mistakes - it didn't show where exactly Shelob stung him and we're guessing that it was just below the mithril shirt.

In the books he got stung on the neck.

I'm not sure but I thought that wound was from the witch king(the right shoulder)

shelob is a powerfull creature...maybee she could pierce the vest...
or maybee she struck just above the vest...

Hmmm...cause it looks like shelob stabs him right around the same spot where the cave troll stabs him, and it just doesnt make any sense if the mithril vest can protect him from the stab from the cave troll and not protect him from shelobs stabbing, maybe your right, maybe her stinger was strong enough to go through the mithril, but its just been bugging me! And when it shows wide shots of Frodo tied up and trying to get out of the ropes, i dont even see a place where she stabbed him, unless i missed it, ill have to recheck and see but i remember not seeing a stab place where she stabbed him

yeah, i saw that the cave troll stabbed him in the stomach, and it seems like thats where shelob stabbed him too, but even if she did stab him around the same spot as the cave trolls stabbing or more above it, the mithril should of protected him from it!

Oooh well at least im not the only one who didnt see shelobs stab wound on frodo, im going to watch and see tonight to see if i see it, but i remember as watching it the many times i do, i remember not seeing it, but im gonna recheck

[email protected]! thats funny!

Mithril vest

Why didn't the mithril vest protect frodo from the troll's weapon thing. And even if it wasn't thick enough, then why did he look like he was in a ton of pain and then suddenly not? I'm confused. confused

the mithril did protect frodo from the troll stabbing him, maybe he was acting like he was in pain so the troll would leave him be, but the mithril did save him, BUT...why didnt it save him from shelobs stabbing?

And i did watch ROTK tonight and looked to see if i could see the wound from shelob whenever he was shirtless and tied up, i didnt see any wound mark, i rewinded and rewinded and didnt see any wound mark where shelob stabbed him, AND i even noticed, before Frodo got stabbed by shelob, that it looks like he doesnt even have the mithril on, cause in the beginning when i showed him put the ring back under his shirt, you can see the mithril really well, but before shelob stabbed him and she was doing the sneak attack on him, you dont see the mithril

In the book Frodo was stabbed by a large orc and the mithril stopped the blade from piercing him, but he still felt like he was struck very hard in the stomach. That would have winded anyone.

Right shaber, but the point im trying to get across is why didnt the mithril save frodo from shelob if it could protect him from the cave trolls stabbing!
