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
