He arrived just in time for the Battle of the Five Armies. Dain later be the King Under the Mountain. During the War of Rings, he and Brand, King of Dale, was both slain during a charge.

- In the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien from which the films are derived, Dain actually fought and killed Azog many years prior to the Battle of the Five Armies. He also dissuaded his people from taking possession of Moria after Azog's death due to having seen Durin's Bane through the gates. He also survived to the time of the War of the Ring, and perished during fighting at the Lonely Mountain shortly before the defeat of Sauron.
