** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Ogres make an appearance in ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'' and are shown as long-armed monsters half-way in size between the orcs and trolls, and serve as frontline soldiers among Azog's forces. They also appear to be intelligent to a certain extent, as shown in the extended edition where they coordinate in teams to destroy several dwarf war chariots.

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Theatre]]
* English editions of the opera ''Theatre/HanselAndGretel'' often translate "Knusperhexe" as "gobbling ogress." It fits the rhythm but isn't quite appropriate for a character otherwise consistently described as a WickedWitch.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'''s ogres are large, dim-witted humanoids that either attack with a club or their fists. In the first game, they were a random neutral threat, but the second one promoted them to underlings of TheHorde. [=WC2=] also presented the ogre-magi (inspired by ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' Ogre Magi, which in turn are based on Japanese oni), which were even turned blue-skinned in the second sequel. Notably, the two-headed variants are freaks of nature magically created by an orc warlock to boost their intelligence.

Oddly, ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' seldom shows any Horde-affiliated ogres and there is no playable Ogre race, while enemy ogres are very common.

* In the spinoff ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'', Ogres are "big guys", strong (have five strength and can throw teammates), stupid (have a chance of forgetting what they are doing) and surprisingly fast and agile for their size (5 movement and 2 agility, higher than the average Big Guy who usually have an agility of only 1 and are often[[MightyGlacier even slower]]). They're also the only Big Guy-class player to get ''their own team.''
