* On ''WesternAnimation/GoldieAndBear'', the troll is a cranky toddler equivalent who throws a tantrum and blocks the bridge because he was woken up from his nap. Fortunately, Bear's Mama Bear is a master troll tamer and knows that the troll can be dealt with by using a firm tone, giving him a blankie and teddy bear, and redirecting him back below the bridge to curl up to finish its nap. Alternatively, giving him a balloon will also work, if you extract a promise from him to go back and finish the nap in exchange for it.

* TabletopGame/DragonDice has trolls who are one of the monsters for the Goblin race. Arguably one of the best units in the game, these trolls have the size and strength typical of fantasy trolls, but also have the somewhat unusual ability to regenerate units other than themselves.

* In ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' trolls are creatures that hunt within the northern forests. They are huge man-eating green-skinned monsters with two huge saber-tooth fangs that protrude from their mouth. They are capable of insanely fast movements and unexpected stealth. They smell the blood of their prey, and are capable of indefinitely stalking them if not put down first. They are also apparently distant relatives of goblins.

* Trolls in TeresaEdgerton's ''Goblin Moon'' and ''The Gnome's Engine'' are a crossbred or cursed offshoot of humanity, who resemble humans but sport bizarre, often bestial deformities. Their disfigurements are unique to each individual, which means that some can pass for human if they wear the right concealing clothes; it also means they hate their own looks. Trolls are carnivores, sometimes [[ImAHumanitarian cannibals]] and are fond of human flesh, yet they're superficially very cultured and educated (particularly in black magic). Male trolls believe it's good for their health if they [[spoiler: trick a human maiden into marriage, then drink some of her blood each night]]; this belief, which may just be a troll superstition, becomes a major plot point in the novels.

* Nero, the cliff troll in the first Literature/{{Fablehaven}} book, is an oversized humanoid reptile. He likes to make deals, and is quite a dangerous haggler.

There is also Udnar the mountain troll, huge and with sword-like spikes all over his back, used by the centaurs as security; Budba the hermit troll, small, goblin-like and, like all his race, extremely reclusive; and aquatic river trolls, some of which guard the Singing Sisters.

* In ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy'' trolls live under the mountain but only because of the curse. They don't mind the sun and they are beautiful, although due to excessive inbreeding often also badly disfigured. And while they don't ''usually'' eat humans, they are very powerful, [[HealingFactor cure all injuries easily]] and they lust for gold.

* Trolls in TadWilliams' ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'' trilogy are creatures that vaguely resemble dwarves in other fantasy worlds, and have [[FantasyCounterpartCulture a language and culture similar to Inuit]]. From the perspective of the immortal Sithi they are almost the same as humans.
