* 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.

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.
