* 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.]]

Not to be confused with trolls. Even though they can often be indistinguishable in fairy tales (when English/French tales reached Scandinavia, "ogre" would usually be translated as "troll"), trolls are generally a type of fae rather than a generic evil monster. Sometimes shares international space with [[{{Youkai}} oni]].

The name comes from the French for Hungarian (who were rumored to eat small children, among other niceties), but the other wiki will disagree and claim descent from the Latin "orcus", meaning hell. Ogres in folklore were portrayed as [[ChildEater child-eating]] monsters who sometimes had magical powers (the ogre from "Puss-in-Boots" is a classic example).
