* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfMajEyal'', Ogres [[spoiler:were created as soldiers and laborers for the [[PoliceState Allure Wars-era Conclave]] (and, for the [[HeWhoFightsMonsters healer]] in charge of the program, as a personal means of getting revenge on the Nargol Empire by creating something that would haunt Halfling nightmares) by way of giving conventional humans an extensive array of magical and nature-powered enhancements, alongside some light mental alterations]]. It's made clear that they're actually pretty smart ([[AmuletOfDependency physical dependence]] on the runes covering their skin has made them Maj'Eyal's finest runesmiths, for example), but they're awful at communication, uninterested in high culture, and prefer to seek out reliable solutions to their problems, like "hit it until it stops moving." It's implied in a few ways that they could be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands - their runes are so ingrained into their physiology as to make them a blank slate for a functional equivalent to genetic engineering, and [[spoiler:one alternate timeline shows Healer Astelrid could've organized them into a world-conquering New Conclave]], but their [[IOweYouMyLife gratitude]] to the [[OurElvesAreBetter Shaloren]] (who have been a ''very'' good influence) and utter lack of personal ambition have made them one of Eyal's nicest ([[KnightInSourArmor if grumpiest]]) factions. (They fit the mold in most other ways - huge, ugly, [[spoiler: used to [[ToServeMan eat Halflings alive]] mid-combat]], and so on.)

* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' has Tionisha, a rather unorthodox example compared to ogres from other media: while she's certainly got the SuperStrength part down, and has a [[BigEater colossal appetite]] one may expect from her species, she's a CuteMonsterGirl with the most feminine personality of her MON teammates, showing a love of cute little animals and a passion for fashion and pop music.

* Ogres in ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' and spinoff ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' were created by Lord Entropy from rocks, dead trees, corpses, and the sensation of being ripped apart by predators and treated as meat. They're very strong, have acute senses of smell, and like eating people. Intellect-wise, though, they don't appear to be different from anyone else. One of them, Ogre-Sensei, is a main character in ''Chuubo's''.

* Ogres in ''Literature/TheIronTeeth'' are herd animals and are actually herbivores, not man-eaters. That won't save you if you startle one, though.

* In the ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' novel ''The Time of the Transference'', Tomjon and his friends are captured by an ogre tribe. As well as grotesque humanoids with fangs and sparse hair, they also include outsized monstrous FunnyAnimals, such as a four and a half foot chipmunk with five stripes and twisted incisors. Tomjon convinces the ogres not to eat them, but instead he becomes engaged to the chieftain's daughter, who's an ogre bear.

** Although his species' name is Androgum, Shockeye from "The Two Doctors" is essentially a big meat-hungry ogre, albeit one with a trained chef's vocabulary.

* RuneScape ogres are large dim-witted humanoids. They have a fairly human, yellowish skin colour and prominent bellies. They speak in a primitive manner. Some are aggressive, but most are not, and are in fact capable of holding a city with merchants. They also have something like a dozen varieties - actually green-skinned jungle ogres (Jogres), blue-skinned amphibious marine ogres (Mogres) and so on, even having zombie and skeletal varieties, aptly named. The now nearly extinct species known as Ourg, even larger than actual giants and more intelligent, might be a relative. Ogres also form a gender-separated society, with the ogresses living further south in an Australia-themed land.

* In an italian fairy tale from the '90, titled ''Literature/GorgoTheOgre'', there are three types of Ogres: Red Ogres are large and brutish, and must kill a monster to achieve adulthood and turn red but are otherwise good natured. Golden Ogres are beautiful, virtuous and only kill if they have no other choice to defend themselves. Finally, Black Ogres are AlwaysChaoticEvil monsters that come in all shapes and size.

* The koloss in ''Franchise/Mistborn''. They are blue skinned and actually start out rather small, around five feet but grow continuously until they reach a height of around twelve feet wherupon most of them die of heart failure. Their skin, however, which starts out saggy, does not grow with them and develops small rips as they grow. They have two emotional states, placid indifference and berserk rage. [[spoiler: They were originally humans, transformed by the Lord Ruler by means of hemalurgy.]]
