As if being a wizard wasn't already cool enough, Gandalf is actually two wizards in one. At the start of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings novels and the Peter Jackson movie trilogy they inspired he's the wise but aging Gandalf the Grey, a mentor to hobbits. But after battling a Balrog (yeah, look it up), he is transformed into the way more powerful, take-no-prisoners, all-around badass Gandalf the White. Bonus points: he's played by Sir Ian McKellen in the movie.
