|[List of appearances]|
Oliphaunts are huge creatures, resembling oversized elephants with six tusks instead of two. Originating from within the jungles of Far Harad, they are often used in battle by the Haradrim. In most cultures the Oliphaunts are regarded creatures of legend and, like dragons, ascribed with all kinds of strange powers.
During the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, Oliphaunts are driven into battle by the Haradrim. They are equipped with spikes strung between their tusks so that when they swing their heads, it causes mass destruction. The Haradrim, along with their Oliphaunts, would have defeated the Rohirrim army, if the Army of the Dead had not arrived.
