* [[YourVampiresSuck Your Trolls Suck]]: Hans explicitly mentions the Norwegian stories about trolls collected by Asbjornsen and Moe (the Norwegian equivalents to the Brothers Grimm) as being mostly fairy tales with wildly inaccurate information.

* TheMole: The "seismologist" they meet in the mountains near the end. [[spoiler: It's implied he's a TSS agent who tipped them off on where the filmmakers would be.]]

** Kalle's death also falls into this nebulous realm. While it's stated that trolls can smell the blood of Christians, Kalle really didn't do himself any favors by going into a full blown panic mode in his final moments and making big enough of a racket that the trolls pretty much became alerted to his presence anyways. While it is possible that the trolls smelled his blood during his last minute confession that he was a Christian, it's equally as likely that they became alerted to him because, well... he just started panicking and making enough noise to give away their location.

''The Troll Hunter'' (Trolljegeren) is a Norwegian FoundFootage film released in 2010. The movie [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis purports to be found footage]], sent in to the film studio, [[BookEnds and opens and closes with comments from the film studio about the fate of the footage and the film makers]]. The film follows three film students from a journalism college -- Thomas (presenter), Kalle (camera) and Johanna (sound) -- who are planning to make a documentary about a possible bear poacher and local eccentric identified only as "Hans". Hans turns out to be in the employ of TST, [[GovernmentConspiracy the Norwegian troll-safety department]], as their government-sanctioned troll hunter (of the Norwegian folklore kind of troll) who hunts and kills trolls who come into contact with people.

Added DiffLines:

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The existence of gigantic humanoid animals that feed on rocks, are allergic to sunlight and petrify regularly is presented as an improbable and extremely rare, but still scientifically conformable natural phenomenon. How they "smell" a human being's devoutness (and not any belief, but explicitly ''Christianity''), however, is left pretty much in the dark.


Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfVillainEffectiveness: Finn (and by extension the entire TST and Norwegian government) climbs this one pretty fast. At first, he appears to be little more than an angry supervisor to Hans who [[FilmTheHand tries to take the student's camera away]] and half-heartedly threatens them with reprecussions, [[spoiler:but by the end of the film, he comes back with his [[GovernmentConspiracy colleagues]] to [[KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade 'disappear']] the whole crew]].

* BizarreAlienBiology: Trolls turn into stone/explode when exposed to sunlight/UVB radiation. Some also sprout additional heads as they age.

* CastingGag: Knut Nærum, a Norwegian comedian known for delivering sometimes odd jokes with a deadpan tone and facial expression and being fond of the GovernmentConspiracy as a topic of humor, plays a clueless power plant worker who has no idea why certain power lines are set up in a useless circle and tries to (futilely) rationalize it on-screen.
