Ungoliant was a primordial being in the shape of a gigantic spider and one of the most terrifying evil spirits in the Lord of the Rings universe. She first appeared when Melkor requested her assistance in destroying the Two Trees: Melkor stabbed them with his spear and Ungoliant devoured the dew.

After this she went on to consume the Wells of Varda, which contain all the dew ever gathered from the Two Trees, and all the jewels in Foremenos, accept for the Silmirals. She demanded them from Melkor, yet he refused, leading to her attacking him. She was then driven of by the Balrogs, who were summoned by Melkor's call.

Her fate is unknown, though she is rumored to have devoured herself, leading to her death. Otherwise, she likely died during Dagor Dagoroth.
