Thorin and Company refers to the thirteen exiled Dwarves under the leadership of Thorin Oakenshield and the one Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, who famously made the Quest of Erebor, travelling through the Misty Mountains and the Wilderland to the Lonely Mountain, to recover their ancient treasure from the Kingdom of Erebor, stolen by the Dragon Smaug.
Thorin's company were:
- Balin and Dwalin, sons of Fundin (descendants of Náin II)
- Óin and Glóin, sons of Gróin (cousins of Balin and Dwalin)
- Fíli and Kíli, brothers, nephews of Thorin
- Dori, Nori and Ori (Dwarves of the House of Durin)
- Bifur with his cousins Bofur and Bombur (descendants of the Dwarves of Khazad-dûm)
- And Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit of the Shire
They were joined by Gandalf for part of the journey.

- All surviving members of the Company appear in the game. After the Battle of Dale the Dwarves and Gandalf pay homage to the tombs of Thorin, Fíli and Kíli, which are now next to that of King Dáin Ironfoot.
2012-14: The Hobbit film series:
- The thirteen Dwarves all feature in the films, although they do not wear coloured hoods, but are given more developed personalities. The Dwarves actually do battle with Smaug, instead of hiding from him, in the "Battle of the Forges". The remaining four Dwarves who stayed behind in Lake-town journey to Erebor after Smaug is slain.
