:The Nazgûl appear throughout the game. Three are Easterlings: "The Bane of Rhûn", "The Woe of Khand", and "The Cursed Rider"; three are [[Haradrim]]: "The Grim Southron", "The High Sorcerer of Harad", and "The Forsaken Reaver"; and three are of Númenórean origin: "The Black Blade of Lebennin", "The Gloom of Nurn", and the Witch-king of Angmar. The Nazgûl are also given the [[Sindarin]] name "Gwatharan" (pl. "Gwetherain").

:The Nazgûl appear several times throughout the game. Three are Easterlings: "The Bane of Rhûn", "The Woe of Khand", and "The Cursed Rider" (also known as "The Lieutenant of Dol Guldur"); three are [[Haradrim]]: "The Grim Southron", "The High Sorcerer of Harad", and "The Forsaken Reaver"; and three are of Númenórean origin: "The Black Blade of Lebennin", "The Gloom of Nurn", and the Witch-king of Angmar. "Amon Thaur" on the slope of Orodruin is revealed to be the place where their transformation was completed, and to where they returned to recloak after being defeated. The Nazgûl are also given the [[Sindarin]] name "Gwatharan" (pl. "Gwetherain").

:Hobbit characters first witness the Black Riders in the Shire during the Prologue. Early in the game one of the Nine wounds a [[Dúnedain]] Ranger Amdir with a [[Morgul-knife|Morgul blade]], who is later transformed into a Wraith himself, despite the best efforts of Free Peoples. Later, the player attempts to resist the troubles the Nine are spreading in Bree-Land. Various people along their path - from Hobbits, to Men of Bree, to people east of [[Weathertop]] - note how the local wildlife became unusually aggressive lately, though few connect it to the influence of Nazgûl.

Later, the player attempts to resist the troubles the Nine are spreading in Bree-Land. During the Fellowship's stay in [[Lothlórien]], the [[Galadhrim]] Elves launch a military strike against [[Dol Guldur]], to draw the attention of the Eye from the company departing down the Shores of Anduin. During their travel down the waters of the Great River, Legolas shot and killed a fell shadow in the sky, not knowing it to be a Nazgûl. The player is later able to find the corpse of the fell beast in the [[Brown Lands]] and it becomes clear that a Nazgûl is not far. At night, the Wraith ambushes the player who manages to drive him away with the use of fire.

:As stated in ''[[The Fellowship of the Ring]]'', only eight horses of the Wraiths were found along the shores of [[Bruinen]]. [[Glorfindel]], [[Elrond]], and his sons all enlist you to find the missing one - and while the horse is eventually found, it is clear that the Nazgûl himself escaped. The player foils his attempts to organize the [[Trolls]] of the [[Trollshaws]] and pursues him into the [[Misty Mountains]], where the severely weakened Wraith is finally defeated, with his spirit sent back to Mordor.

:During the Fellowship's stay in [[Lothlórien]], the [[Galadhrim]] Elves launch a military strike against [[Dol Guldur]], to draw the attention of the Eye from the company departing down the Shores of Anduin. At this point, the Black Blade of Lebennin, the Gloom of Nurn, and the Lieutenant of Dol Guldur are revealed to be the three Nazgûl residing in the fortress. A large force of players confronts the Lieutenant and his Fell Beast atop the chief tower of Dol Guldur.

:During their travel down the waters of the Great River, Legolas shot and killed a fell shadow in the sky, not knowing it to be a Nazgûl. The player is later able to find the corpse of the fell beast in the [[Brown Lands]] and it becomes clear that a Nazgûl is not far - only this time the player cannot receive help from Elrond or Galadriel, who helped him survive the last two encounters. At night, the Wraith ambushes your friends, but the player manages to drive him away with the use of fire. A girl named Nona is wounded in this fight, but the Free Peoples managed to bring her to Lady Galadriel in time to heal the wound. The player later meets the Bane of Rhûn in the [[Blackroot Vale]] and the Black Blade of Lebennin in [[Osgiliath]].
 
:During the Battle of the Pelennor, the Witch-king plays the role as described in the books. The High Sorcerer of Harad and the Woe of Khand guard the way to Gothmog in the raid instance "Throne of the Dread Terror", and the Forsaken Reaver is found at the end of the "Quays of the [[Harlond (Gondor)|Harlond]] instance, in which he attempts to prevent Aragorn and his host from joining the battle.
