* 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.''

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 [[TheFairFolk fae]] rather than a generic evil monster. Sometimes shares international space with {{oni}}.

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).

* The Super Mutants seem to fill this role in the post-apocalyptic setting of VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}. Super mutants from the other games are more akin to "Blizzard" orcs than ogres.
** The art book for ''Fallout 3'' puts even more emphasis on the [[OurOgresAreHungrier "ogre"]] aspect as they are shown to make their own cobbled-together armor and guns, as well as forge melee weapons such as [[AnAxeToGrind axes]], [[{{BFS}} swords]], [[CarryABigStick maces]], and [[EpicFlail flails/ball-and-chains.]]

* Ogres in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' are very large, unintelligent brutes who smash things with their fists. They live in Cyrodiil, the thickly forested province in the center of Tamriel.

They are also one of the chosen protectorates of Malacath, the Daedric Prince of the spurned and the ostracized, which is partially why they feel that "might makes right" and pick fights with everyone/thing that they come across

All are able to perform VoluntaryShapeshifting. One serves as the first series' BigBad.
