Your servants are destroyed and scattered; your neighbours you have made your enemies; and you have cheated your new master, or tried to do so.

–Gandalf in The Two Towers, The Voice of Saruman

Saruman is an added by Mevans to troll the players constantly asking for Gandalf.

He glows in all rainbow colours which could be a reference to the lore where Saruman calls himself "Saruman of many colours." He has a randomised nametag.


He does not spawn naturally but can be summoned with spawn eggs, mob spawners or the command:

/lotr_summon lotr.Saruman


Saruman emits explosion particles in frequent periods that do no damage but throw the player back. He rotates uncontrollably around himself at a very high speed. He also makes the same sounds as orcs, though at a much higher frequency. Additionally, he is capable of entering doors.

He wields the staff of Gandalf the White and sometimes he eats a log, in the way that other NPCs eat food.

He can spawn rabbits and the rabbits have a chance to mount Saruman, building a tower of rabbits above Saruman's head. If you kill him the rabbits on his head will stay in a tower.

Due to the frequent explosions created around him, it is very difficult to reach Saruman and projectiles shot at him have a chance to be thrown back.


A Saruman cannon

As he throws projectiles and mobs away from him, you can use an imprisoned Saruman to create a cannon. Simply spawn mobs or light orc bombs in front of him, and they will be launched away!

Before posting obscene comments about his appearance, please note that the things on the front of his robes are the ties to his kirtle.


When killed, Saruman will drop bones and rarely his staff.
