Tolkien monster (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

orc

'tolkien monster' is the definition.
(orcs are creatures in The Lord of the Rings)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for orc that I've seen before include "Sea-monster" , "warlike figure" , "Ugly creature" , "Sea monster; or Tolkien character" , "Tolkienian creature" .)

I've seen this clue in The New York Times, the Universal, The Telegraph, The Sun and the LA Times.
