Merry is often considered, and is described by Tolkien as, the most perceptive and intelligent of the hobbits: for example, even before Bilbo Baggins leaves The Shire, he knew of the One Ring and its great power.

He also is a force behind "the Conspiracy" of Sam, Pippin, Fredegar Bolger (more commonly known as "Fatty", due to his very plump form), and himself to help Frodo. Thus, at the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring, Merry is well prepared and organized—he assembles their packs and brings ponies. His shortcut through the Old Forest does not serve them well, though by luck they are saved by Tom Bombadil, and are not pursued by the Nazgûl. At the Barrow-downs, he acquires his sword, a work of Westernesse. In J. R. R.

At Bree, he is actually not present in the Prancing Pony when Frodo foolishly puts on the Ring; instead, he is outside taking a walk, and is nearly overcome by the Nazgûl who arrive. At Rivendell, he is seen studying maps and plotting their path. His admission to the Fellowship comes with only a little less reluctance than Pippin's; they are the two youngest members, and Elrond had planned on sending them back to the Shire. At Amon Hen, he is captured, along with Pippin, by a band of Saruman's orcs, although he gives a good account of himself, and is valiantly defended by Boromir. Bree is a fictional village in J. R. R.

Escaping with Pippin into Fangorn Forest he is met by Treebeard. Along with Pippin, he drinks significant amounts of Ent-draught and gains considerably in height. Accompanying Treebeard to the Entmoot and later to Isengard, he and Pippin are set as the guardians following Saruman's fall.

Separated from Pippin after Pippin looks into the palantír and is whisked off to Gondor by Gandalf, Merry swears fealty to Théoden and becomes his esquire. Without permission from his liege, he rides to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields in the care of young Dernhelm. As the Riders of Rohan are attacked by the Nazgûl and Théoden is injured, Merry and Dernhelm face the Witch-king of Angmar together. Here, Merry's companion is revealed to be Éowyn, White Lady of Rohan. Battling both fell beast and the Nazgûl, Éowyn is well assisted by Merry's crucial move: his sword, originally made for the fight against the Witch-king, is one of the few weapons able to break the age-old spells sustaining him. He stabs the Witch-king in the sinew behind his knee, leaving him vulnerable to further attack, but at great expense to himself. This is enough to allow Éowyn to finish off the Witch-king. Merry hears Théoden's last words, but is, as is seemingly common luck with hobbits, unnoticed by the honour escort of Riders and is found wandering in the city by Pippin. He is saved by the healing of Aragorn and recovers fully, and more quickly than Éowyn. A palantír is a magical artifact from J. R. R. Tolkiens fictional universe of Middle-earth. ...

Upon his return, he and Pippin are clearly seen to be the tallest of hobbits, taller even than the legendary Bullroarer Took (as Sam said at the Field of Cormallen, he was 3 inches taller than he ought to be). Merry goes on to marry Estella Bolger sometime after the end of the Third Age. He inherits the title Master of Buckland in year 11 of the Fourth Age.

In Peter Jackson's film adaptations of the books, Merry was played by Dominic Monaghan. His role underwent minor changes to make him arguably more actively involved in the story. In The Fellowship of the Ring, he travels ahead of Frodo, Sam and Pippin to prepare Frodo's new house in Buckland. He is therefore not present for the other hobbits' first encounter with a Black Rider, in which they are forced to hide under a treeroot near Bamfurlong, the land of Farmer Maggot. Since this subplot does not appear in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Merry is introduced at the same time as Pippin, and both of them are present in the above scene. (Ralph Bakshi's film also made these changes.) He is also left inside, to witness Frodo's accidental use of the Ring at the Prancing Pony. In The Two Towers, he and Pippin are present at the Entmoot called by Treebeard, but the Ents decide on their own to attack Isengard. In The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, the Ents refuse to get involved, and it takes the persuasion of Merry and Pippin to convince them otherwise. In The Return of the King, he wounds his arm defending Éowyn during the Battle of Pelennor Fields, and is therefore in no condition to accompany Aragorn to the Black Gate of Mordor. In The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King his injuries are less serious, so he is still included in this final battle.

Trivia

  • It should be noted that Meriadoc Brandybuck is only a translation of the original Westron Kalimac Brandagamba. In keeping with the conceit that The Lord of the Rings was derived from the translated Red Book of Westmarch, Tolkien translated all its Westron words into English — including the names of characters. See Westron for more information.
  • In the stories Pippin is eight years younger than Merry. It is interesting to note that the actors that played Merry and Pippin in Peter Jackson's movies are seperated by eight years, with Dom being the younger of the two.
