There were a lot of moments when characters punched an Orc, hit his legs and knocked him down, or knocked him down with a thrown rock, but none of these were counted as kills, due to the fact that these hits were not likely fatal. I kept to the minimum at all times when large amounts of Orcs are killed, to avoid over-counting, so in some shots it’s debatable how many were actually killed. 3 Nazguls were also set on fire, but they cannot die, and are all seen in later scenes in the movie. Gandalf was killed by the Balrog, but this is not seen until the next movie. 9 horses are killed, but not counted.
