* In Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Reserved for the Cat]]'' the troll is an evil earth elemental with the ability to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshift]] into many different forms, including humans.
** The fairy tale type of troll (turns to stone when exposed to sunlight, guards bridges, and eats goats) appears in a sequel book, ''From a High Tower''. Most are evil, but the one that appears, named Pieter, was apparently taught to be good and helps out the good guys.

Though they still sported the same hairdos. Original Scandinavian troll dolls were more UglyCute, and lacked the AnimeHair. They were created by a Danish fisherman in the 1950s.

* One of the best variations we've found are the ''WesternAnimation/StoneProtectors''. They were a toy line and short-lived cartoon series released on the heels of the troll doll revival in the mid-90s. These trolls were a literal Four Man Band who protected the Stones of Power from an evil troll using ThePowerOfRock.
