* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' Ogres have a society influenced by the Mongols, and wield a strange form of Gut Magic, which depends on what the caster ate. They literally worship the concept of hunger and practice rampant cannibalism, eating both other sentient races and their own kind; a KlingonPromotion generally entails the usurper devouring its predecessor. Some are captured by the Skaven to be turned into Rat Ogres.
** Ogre Maneaters are wanderers who have served as mercenaries in various armies, keeping souvenirs and trophies. Now available in [[http://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Ogre-Kingdoms-Pirate-Maneater Pirate]], [[http://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Ogre-Kingdoms-Ninja-Maneater Ninja]] (yes), [[http://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Ogre-Kingdoms-Female-Maneater and]] BrawnHilda flavors.
** Warhammer Ogres also have ties to the [[{{Hobbits}} halflings]], since both were created as last-ditch stave-off-the-apocalypse races by the Old Ones. Both races have large appetites and a degree of resistance to the warping effects of Chaos. However, they live in quite different areas - the halflings in a fairly idyllic and verdant land and the ogres in a barbaric mountain range infested with large carnivores - so they rarely associate, causing the ogres to adopt a breed of goblin as servants and minions instead.

** Rat Ogres are hulking rat-like monsters the size of ogres used as shock troops by the [[RatMen Skaven]]. There's some debate about where they're from -- it's certain that they're creation of the monster-breeders of Clan Moulder, but besides that there's debate about whether they were once regular Ogres who were twisted by dark magic or whether they were bred and mutated from Skaven stock. True Ogres, at least, don't see any kinship.
** Dragon Ogres are Chaos-aligned monsters resembling monstrous centaurs, with the body of a horned Ogre atop that of a wingless dragon-like beast. They are some of the most feared minions of Chaos, only seen as part of the greatest and most fearsome Chaos warhosts and spending the rest of their ageless lives slumbering. They are not actually true Ogres -- in fact, when they and the Ogres first met they instantly became enemies, and have fought many vicious wars over the ages.

* The Ogres of ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}: Banestorm'' are among the Elder Folk of Yrth but by far the least advanced of everyone; even the orcs are cultured and intelligent compared to them. Their only saving grace is that they're stronger and tougher than every other species.

** The Jotun are actually a subversion of this, at least in their backstory. The jotun were an advanced magical civilization predating humanity and the human gods, but eventually their pride overcame them and they descended into constant civil wars that turned the once-great people into savage ogres. They are still the only ogres or giants to use magic in the ''GuildWars'' universe.

* In ''EverQuest'', ogres are large, muscular, stupid humanoids who [[YouNoTakeCandle not speak too good]]. The stupidity came about as a result of being cursed by the Gods of good. In [=EverQuest 2=], the Gods had all left, and one of the effects was that the ogre's curse was lifted, turning them into a race of {{Genius Bruiser}}s.
