* Trolls in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' [[{{Potterverse}} universe]] are strong, large, and not too possessed of smarts. There's nothing really unique about them. The first troll we meet is depicted like a wild animal let loose, but we later meet trolls who are somewhat smarter (at least in that they can be hired as thugs). Apparently, a rather optimistic wizard once tried to teach trolls ballet. It didn't end well for him. The trolls seen later were mentioned as [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything 'comparing the size of their clubs.']]

* The trolls in Rienne Poortvliet's ''Literature/{{Gnomes}}'' books are nasty, ugly, foul, cruel -- every feature every bad troll ever had lumped into one bloated hairy little monster. And there is a subspecies, the Snotgurdle, who is ''worse''.

Regular trolls may be dim-witted oafs who love to torment captured gnomes and kidnap human children, but Snotgurgles are horrible, filthy, cruel monsters who almost invariably kill the gnomes they capture, often in fairly nasty ways.

* German RPG ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'' has trolls that are big (about 10 feet/3 metres), hairy humanoids, stubborn and easily angered, with a sweet tooth. They're also one of the oldest civilization-building races in that universe, and while they're not too fond of the smaller races, they're not evil.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Star accidentally (and permanently!) transforms her high school math teacher Miss Skullnick into a troll. Skullnick ends up with green skin, fangs, a huge nose, long red hair and a red gem in the place of her belly button. She's understandably upset by this, until a few episodes later when she learns that [[CursedWithAwesome trolls live for over 400 years, can lift over 100 times their own body weight and are virtually indestructible]].

** The similarity is close enough to facilitate a [[MasterOfIllusion Foolamancy]] trick to disguise a twoll as Parson at a key moment.

* Generally speaking, trolls in video games have a habit of allying themselves with orcs or goblins (''AgeOfWonders 2''), or both (which was the case in ''VideoGame/BattleForWesnoth'' and ''Warcraft II'', in which the goblins left the Horde in the third game, even though they still have some ties with them as evident in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'').
