    The Green-elves of Ossiriand are the unfriends of the newcomers to middle-earth (men).

    So, the answer is that these elves were the unfriends, or that their (the elves) unfriends were the newly discovered men.

    So it could be "elves" or "men".

    I choose: Elves.

    If Morgoth is scratching at the right doors, then I will have to try the other person to descend from the dark outside, Ungoliant.

    No, he "came from outside" as a servant of Aule, and remained so until the destruction of the two pillars at least (although he was a spy for Morgoth for quite some time before that).

    This is close. However, the target of the one-word clue resides within Arda.
    I am trying to remain true to the spirit of this trivia category which is: ONE word Tolkien trivia. So giving clues sort of negates the one-word rule.

    I will say Tulkas, because he did not initially come into Arda with the other Ainur (and therefore can be distinguished from Morgoth).

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    We also have the Maia who carry the Sun and the Moon (I forget their names) and travel beyond the Doors of Night into the Outside each day. However, since they are a duo, that would make the answer non-unique.

    Not them either.

    Ok, a clue:
    This is the only true outsider to all in middle-earth.

    Well, Hmmm, I guess I didn't specify this but we have generally been working with the world as documented in LoTR and The Silmarillion.

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86lfwine_of_England

    There is no such framework in the published version of The Silmarillion; Tolkien eventually changed the intended framework of the saga, altering its mode from tales told by Ælfwine to one based around Bilbo Baggins's Red Book translations of "Elvish lore".
    oops, there goes another clue.....

    Tom has no relatives.
    No pop, no mom, no sons, no daughters.
    So, related to no one: a total outsider, belonging to no group.
    Goldberry was a candidate, but she has a mom.
