Best Answer

In fiction, a foil is a character who contrasts with another character (usually the protagonist) in order to highlight particular qualities of the other character.

Sam Gamgee would be the foil to Frodo Baggins inasmuch as he , by his personality , both highlights and contrasts Frodo's personality with his own.

Foil characters are everywhere in the story... a good example is Gandalf and Saruman.

Sam and Gollum

Boromir and Faramir

Merry and Pippin

Gandalf and Pippin

Eowyn and Arwen

Theoden and Denethor

Legolas and Gimli

Treebeard and Old Man Willow

Sauron and Saruman

Sauron and Tom Bombadil

Elrond and Galadriel

Aragorn and Boromir

Nazgul and Fellowship

Gaffer and Denethor
